Simulate a distribution cycle
Test to ASTM D4169 or ISTA 3B/E. These methods are designed to simulate the shocks, loadings, and environments that your palletised unit load may experience before it reaches the customer.
ASTM D4169 is customisable and is useful when you're qualifying a particular pallet design.ISTA 3B/E is more defined and is useful when you want to create a standard of performance between packaging designs or you don’t know how they’ll be used in the field.
Improvement and risk mitigation
Test your palletised unit load to your tailored requirements. This may depend on what you’re trying to achieve, the packaging specifications, how it’s transported or how it’s used.
If you're having failures in the market, then we can replicate them in the lab to diagnose the issue.
WE CONDUCT SHOCK AND IMPACT TESTS
Transport shock & impact tests
Excellent for simulating falls, being thrown around during truck transport and crashing waves during sea transport.
WE CONDUCT ROUGH FORKLIFT HANDLING TESTING
Rough forklift handling testing
Excellent for simulating impacts and quick accelerations when pallets are mishandled in the warehouse
WE CONDUCT COMPRESSION TESTING
Compression resistance testing
Excellent for simulating stacked pallets in warehouse storage along with the effects of creep and environmental degradation.
WE CONDUCT TRANSPORT TESTING
Transport simulation testing
Excellent for simulating the repetitive shocking effect of multi-axis random/sinusoidal vibration experienced during transport.
Note: Ship (sea) vibration simulation is generally simulated due to its low-frequency and high-amplitude nature. Instead, sea transport is considered by testing a packaging’s resistance to shocks. These transport tests are performed with one of our associated laboratories.
WE CAN SIMULATE HARSH ENVIRONMENTS
Harsh environment testing
Note: other environmental resistance (accelerated aging, weathering) tests include weather and UV resistance using QUV machines or Xenon machines. These tests are designed for materials testing. These weathering tests are performed with one of our associated laboratories.
