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.


Interface Solution

  • 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.


See how this was accomplished usines an Interface Model WMC Sealed Stainless Steel Mini Load Cell and a 9330 High Speed Data Logger.
