Packaging testing equipment


Stretch film is transparent in many cases, but how “transparent” is the influence of the film on the secondary packaging?

Do you experience the following difficulties?

  • Cans, cardboard cases are crushed by the tertiary packaging?
  • Measuring the “holding force” of a stretch film is imprecise and difficult?
  • Each stretch wrapper gives a different result?

The FEF-200 is a portable device which can be installed on any pallet before wrapping. During and after the wrapping process, the forces generated on the edge of the pallet load is monitored.


Have you ever tried to build a house with flexible bricks? Why then build a pallet load  with poor shrink bundles?

In the beverage industry, the  stability of your pallet loads strongly depends on the shear stiffness of the secondary packaging. This stiffness is effected by the shrink film quality, temperature settings, humidity, shrink tunnel settings, bottle design…

The SPT-300 is a clever tool which can be used to quantify this stiffness in your production lines and avoid unstable pallet loads and damaged products.


High performance film deserves high performance testing. ESTL’s Film Performance Tester delivers realistic stretch film testing.

ESTL’s Film Performance Tester has been developed to test stretch films in representative conditions. Stretch film tests can be done at different constant speeds. Variating speeds as found on industrial wrappers can be simulated as well. The simulation of variating speeds is a unique feature which is only offered by ESTL’s Film Performance Tester!



The UTMS (universal test and measure solution) is a carefully developed and built DAQ system and test bench controller that provides a state-of-the art test and measurement solution.

ESTL was established as a spin-off business from university research, performing physical test and measurement campaigns. Due to the lack of an easily configurable, modular and robust DAQ and test bench control solution, ESTL decided to develop a software solution in house in cooperation with Beckhoff. The highly configurable solution is based on an industrial grade IPC with high speed and accurate I/O, combining durability and modularity.

Tire Testing Equipment


The STTB-200 has been designed to quantify the stiffness of a tire in an automated way. The machine can impose a given displacement, rotation or force on a test tire.

The machine is equipped with a 6 degree of freedom measurement plate to accurately measure the forces and moments in 3 directions.



The purpose of the RRTB-4000 is to measure the rolling resistance of a tire. To perform rolling resistance tire testing, a constant radial load is applied to the tire. In the meantime, the required force to maintain a constant speed is measured precisely.
