Candy Stamp Force Testing
Customer Need / Challenge
- Manufacturers of hard shell candies often stamp text or logos on the candy shells.
- Stamping too hard breaks the candy shell. Stamping too light results in an uneven or incomplete imprint.
- A test apparatus uses an Interface Model WMC Mini Load Cell attached to hydraulic actuators to measure the compression force required.
- Engineers determine specific force needed to properly apply the imprint without breaking the candy shell.
