Process of Adjusting the Drop Height of Carton Drop Tester

To adjust the height of the drop tester, follow these steps using the drop height adjustable clamp:
  1. Locate the Drop Height Adjustable Clamp: On the drop tester, you will find a drop height adjustable clamp. This clamp allows you to control the drop height for your tests.
  2. Determine the Maximum Drop Height: Ensure you are aware of the maximum drop height allowed by the tester, which in this case is 1.8 meters.
  3. Use the Wheel for Adjustment: To adjust the height of the platform, locate the wheel provided on the side of the device. This wheel allows you to move the platform upward or downward to set the desired drop height.
  4. Place the Sample: Once you've adjusted the height, carefully place the sample you want to test on the platform.
  5. Perform the Drop Mechanism: To initiate the drop, locate the handle on the back of the machine. Push down on this handle to release the sample from the set height, allowing you to perform your drop test accurately.
In this way, you can easily perform drop strength tests with the help of this quality testing equipment.
