Understanding drop tester working principle for accurate testing

For paper and packaging manufacturers, testing packages for their drop strength is of utmost importance. Drop strength testing involves subjecting packages to simulated drop events, such as falls or impacts, to determine their ability to withstand these situations. Thus, we at Presto have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as a drop strength tester that is used to test the dropping ability of packages and ensures that quality materials will be delivered to the customers.

This testing machine is versatile and can be used to test a variety of packaging materials and identify weaknesses of the materials to test them against higher drops. In this article, we will discuss brief information about the Presto drop strength tester and the working principle of the drop strength tester. So, let us get started!

Guaranteed accurate testing against higher drops with Presto drop tester

Packages go through various stages of distribution, including loading, unloading, stacking, and shipping, where they may encounter rough handling or accidental drops. Testing for drop strength helps manufacturers identify weaknesses or vulnerabilities in their packages, enabling them to make necessary design modifications or choose more suitable materials to enhance the package's protective capabilities.
Thus, we at Presto have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as drop testing equipment that is used to test the dropping ability of packages and ensures that quality materials will be delivered to the customers.
Drop strength testing plays a vital role in ensuring the safety of the packaged contents. Many products are fragile, sensitive, or even hazardous, and any damage caused by a package's failure during a drop event can have severe consequences.
By subjecting packages to controlled drop tests, manufacturers can evaluate the impact and shock resistance of their packaging, reducing the risk of product damage or contamination during transit.
You can easily conduct a free-fall drop test on packages with the Presto drop tester.
Now, let us focus on the features and technical specifications of the Presto drop tester.

Features of Presto drop tester

Drop testing is a method of testing packages giving them a free fall from height. Repetitive testing of packages shows test results that can be visually noted. The machinery needed a rigid platform to lift and hold the packet, and a stiff surface to bear the free fall force of a completely filled corrugated box.
This quality lab testing instrument can also visualize the impact of free falls, with a Presto drop strength tester.
Below we have listed the features of the Presto drop tester:
  • Provision to uplift test platform by the guide mechanism
  • Drop Height adjustable clamp
  • Straight and Angular Drop tests can be performed on a single Instrument
  • Strong base plate with a rugged structure
  • Can easily test transport worthiness of corrugated & solid fiber boxes

Technical specifications of Presto drop strength tester

  • Testing height: Drop Height Min. 750mm, max 1800mm
  • Max. dimension of Box that can be tested: Standard L 465 x W 445 x H 500 mm (Optional dropping platform sizes also available on request)
  • Max weight of Box to be tested: Up to 50 Kg
  • Opening Actuation: Manual through the lever
  • Top Edge Holding Device: Included
  • Height Measuring Scale least count: 1 mm
  • Base dimension (Floor Space): 950 x 600 mm
With these high-end features and technical specifications, one can accurately test the dropping strength of packages and get highly accurate lab testing results. We follow accurate drop test standards for testing the dropping strength of packages with ease.
Now, let us discuss the working principle of the Presto drop strength tester.

Working principle for Presto drop strength tester

The Presto drop strength tester operates on a simple yet effective principle. It is designed to assess the ability of packages to withstand drops and impacts, simulating real-world handling and transportation conditions.
This lab testing instrument utilizes a sturdy testing platform where the package is securely placed. The operator adjusts the test parameters, including the desired drop height and the number of drops to be performed.
Once activated, the drop mechanism releases the package from the specified height, subjecting it to a controlled drop.
The tester measures and records the impact forces experienced by the package during the drop. This data helps evaluate the package's durability and its ability to protect the contents.
This lab testing instrument plays an efficient role in the packaging industry. You can read more on the importance of drop testing in the packaging industry.
