Packaging transport vibration tests: Ensuring compliance and product protection
During transportation and distribution, shipping packaging is inevitably subjected to vibrations. Vibration tests are essential to verify the packaging's resistance to these stresses. They also offer the opportunity to compare different packaging solutions, either qualitatively through a standard test or quantitatively by instrumenting the test. The packaging design plays a crucial role, as it can amplify or attenuate the experienced movements.
Standards and compliance for vibration tests on packaging
We have vibration testing capabilities compliant with international standards: ASTM D4728, D4169, ISTA, ISO 13355, ISO 4180, NF H00-060. These standards ensure that our tests meet the quality and safety standards required in the packaging industry.
Low-frequency vibration tests for packaging: Simulation and analysis
In the laboratory, low-frequency vibration tests are performed on a mechanical vibrating table. This method replicates the most impactful frequencies during transport. However, low-frequency vibration systems only recreate a portion of the real transport vibration spectrum, making random vibration tests essential for a comprehensive evaluation.
Random vibration tests for a comprehensive packaging evaluation
Road, rail, and air transports generate random vibrations, a complex mix of constantly changing frequencies and amplitudes. Random vibration tests, conducted using advanced electrodynamic equipment, simulate transport conditions more realistically. These tests are crucial for assessing the durability and effectiveness of packaging solutions under real transport conditions.
FAQ on Transport Packaging Vibration Tests
Vibration tests are crucial for assessing the packaging's resistance to the vibrational stresses encountered during transport. They ensure that the packaging can effectively protect the product against vibrations experienced during distribution and transportation.
