Good vibrations: Putting your packages to the test
Whether it be delicate equipment, fragile products like solar modules or high-quality consumer goods: once your products embark on their journey by road, rail, air or container ship, there is a lot they have to stand up to. A variety of mechanical and climatic stresses can act on the packages or the palletised load units during transport, handling and storage. And we can find out before the actual shipment whether the packaging provides adequate protection for the contents.
In our accredited test laboratory we can simulate the following stresses, for example:
- Climatic preconditioning
- Vibration and shock testing to simulate vibrations and shocks on the load surfaces of a range of transport facilities
- Drop tests and tilting tests to simulate vertical impacts during transhipment
- Compression tests to simulate pressure stresses during transport and storage
We test in accordance with internationally recognised, standardised test programmes, for example ISTA or ASTM. On request, we can draw up a test programme that is made to measure for your individual transport chain.
On completion of the tests we send you a detailed test report. This documents all the tests and identifies any weaknesses in the product and packaging. And it ensures that customer complaints about damaged goods are reduced to the absolute minimum right from the start.
So you can sit back and relax while your products are travelling around the world!
The competence of our test laboratories has been confirmed by accreditation bodies:
