Austin Reliability Labs Graphic: Service Spotlight - Drop/Package Testing

Drop/Package Testing

Mechanics have been around since the first hominid started using stone tools. It is a complex, detail-oriented science, and it takes knowledgeable, detail-oriented people to properly test. At ARL we have years of experience in Mechanical Testing and can help you isolate problems or verify specifications.

Drop testing of packaged and unpackaged products are performed to desired test heights and impact surfaces with our automated system. Additionally, we frequently design specialized test apparatus to evaluate product mechanical fatigue, wear-out and end-of-life. This is very beneficial to determine product performance and life expectancy of the mechanical aspects of your product.

Drop Testing determines the ability of a package or product to withstand the stresses of handling drops by people and machinery in the distribution and use environment. Our drop test system allows you to thoroughly examine the effectiveness of package cushioning and its ability to protect your product, as well as other critical design attributes when exposed to all possible drop test orientations.

  • Standards: ISTA, ASTM, IEC, Military & Others

Transportation and operational tests are also utilized as part of our Mechanical Testing strategies to qualify your product and measure strength versus stress in order for us to determine the appropriate standard for your product. Contact our staff today and let us determine the most appropriate testing profile for your product.
