CSZ Testing Broadens Testing Capabilities with Drop Testing
Ensuring packaging effectiveness for conditions encountered during transit.
By: CSZ Testing Services
Common drop test conditions consist of a freefall from various heights onto a solid surface. Drop testing is used to simulate conditions which may occur to packages and products during handling or during the transportation and shipping. These test methods are designed to evaluate the integrity of packages or products and their design limits for protection from collisions or drops which are likely to occur in the distribution or end-user environment.
Drop testing helps to reduce damage to products and shipping damage claims, saving companies time and money.
CSZ's drop testing capabilities include weights up to 661lbs (300Kg), package depth up to 41.5in (105cm), and distances of free-fall from 1in (2.5cm) up to 72in (182cm).
"As we continue to grow, there has been an increased demand for additional testing services. In response to this demand, we are happy to announce we have added drop testing to our resume of world-class testing services," said Glenn Kruschinski, CSZ Testing Division General Manager. "Our expanded capabilities provide us the capability to perform additional testing to several test standards, such as ITSA, ASTM, MIL-STD-810, FedEx, and more," He continued.
