Package testing and transport simulation testing are designed to simulate a product’s journey from when it is boxed at the factory until it reaches the customer. The primary purpose is to ensure that the packaging will sufficiently protect the product and that the packaging itself can withstand the stress of transportation.
Package tests are designed to reproduce the effects of transport on, for example, a pallet of boxed televisions, a transit-packaged washing machine or a crate of components for a vehicle or aeroplane. Tests can also be used to improve packaging design and to optimize packaging material use.
The suggested system for package testing combines an LDS V875-640 shaker fitted with a magnesium head expander with a LASERUSB controller and a SPA-K amplifier.
