Presto’s Drop Tester is designed as per IS: 7028, Part IV standard. It is a useful instrument to determine the transport value of solid fibre boxes, corrugated boxes and shipping containers. It has an angular drop arrangement to correctly determine the transport worthiness of the package from all angles.
The drop test is performed to measure the ability of corrugated boxes and fibreboard cartons and containers to stand with vertical impact in free drops. The test is performed one time and more than one time to analyse various conditions that occur on a package during transit and handling. It serves as the best equipment for performance analysis and package design before production and use.
Reason for testing:
The drop test is performed to gauge the effect of shock in transit to avoid the progressive deterioration of products that can keep the product to be unused.
