Package Drop Tester

Summary : An important requirement for packaging is to be able to bear accidental drops which are the most common effects of incorrect handling practices.

Unit packs may get subjected to drops during various stages of production, packing and even while being loaded on store shelves by the store staff or while being picked up from the shelf by the consumer. The package must keep the contents intact.

Similarly, the Secondary or Transport Packs may get subjected to accidental drops during transport and warehousing activities.

This test is intended for use in evaluating the capability of a container to withstand the sudden shock resulting from a free fall, or to evaluate the capability of a container and its inner packing to protect its contents during the sudden shock resulting from a free fall. This test method may also be used to compare the performance of different package designs. This test method may also permit observation of the progressive failure of a container and the damage to its contents.

The test help assess :

  • Durability of internal packages.
  • Effectiveness of Partitioning and Cushioning arrangements.
  • Product Fragility
  • Drop Failure Height (which can be used to specify the max storage height of the product).

 

Test Method :

Individual Unit Packages or Secondary Packages are dropped at different heights and different orientations to assess for durability.

The test height is generally the expected height the product can be dropped from in real life or slightly higher. Heavier packages are generally handled at lower heights and hence dropped from lower heights. Likewise, light weights products are placed higher in shelfs or stacked higher, hence they need to be dropped from higher heights.
