Using a compression tester to optimize your packages

Using a compression tester to optimize your packages

Using a compression tester allows companies to predict the resistance of packages to compression forces, thereby being able to calculate the protection that they can provide to a load. This means that a compressometer makes it easier to optimize packages based on the...

Drop test packaging: which standards does it support

Drop test packaging: which standards does it support

Packaging drop tests are essential when guaranteeing the safety of loads during shipping and handling. These tests simulate the drops and rotational impacts that a load may experience during the distribution process, and allow for the compliance with the most...

Package testing

Package testing

  What packaging testing is?   In order to know the mechanical stiffness properties of a packaging-product system in front of the distribution cycle, the system needs to be measured or evaluated. Its mechanical properties need to be well know, dimensions,...

Impact test

Impact test

Why impact testing is important?   The impact simulation tests are very important to check the resistance of the goods to these possible impacts that might occur during the distribution process. To carry out these simulation tests, the load is subjected to...

Stability testing: EUMOS 40509 method

Stability testing: EUMOS 40509 method

What is an accelerated stability testing?   The stability test simulates the horizontal accelerations, as well as decelerations, that may be produced during distribution cycle by different means of transport. The main purpose of a stability test in transport...

Compression testing

Compression testing

What compression testing means?   During transport, handling and warehouse automatic storage, compressive forces are produced on the load due to the stacking of the packages or the exercise pressure between each other during movement. A compression tester allows...

Clamp testing

Clamp testing

  What clamping force means?   During automatic storage, the packages not only suffer vertical compressions, but also horizontal compression than can affect to the package floor retain properties, producing that the inside product can fall down. In order to...
