This will make eight Chalmers DST for the group as they make light-weighting and right-weighting a priority. The Chalmers DST measures the structural quality of combined board produced at the corrugator and measures the damage (crush) that occurs during the converting pro- cess. This quality can be compared to what should be ob- tained on undamaged board and a Performance Indicator calculated. The DST provides feedback in twelve seconds so real time on machine adjustments can be implemented. Based on the calculated Performance Indicator, the DST can give a good idea of what the likely stacking per- formance will be and also the effects of cyclical humidity creep. It provides an accurate indication of how a box will perform in a real world environment. Visit for more information.
