Corrugated boxes and cartons are widely used in different industries to deliver packages accurately to customers. Testing the drop strength of boxes is important to ensure that the packaging can withstand the rigors of handling and transportation. Drop tests help to determine if the packaging is strong enough to protect the contents from damage during handling and shipping. Thus, if you are a paper & packaging manufacturer, and looking for an accurate testing instrument to test the drop strength of packages, then we at Testronix have designed a high-quality lab testing instrument known as a drop tester.

The pneumatic model of the drop strength tester will accurately test the dropping ability of the materials and ensure that quality products will be delivered to the customers. Testronix drops testing equipment has been designed as per ASTM D5276 testing standards that make it easy for the manufacturers to conduct drop strength tests on the materials.

In this blog, we will discuss a brief drop tester pneumatic model and how this lab testing instrument is used to test the drop strength of boxes. But first, let us discuss why packaging boxes should be tested for quality.

Keep your products safe and secure with a carton drop test

Carton drop testing is an essential quality factor for assessing the durability and strength of carton boxes. It involves subjecting carton boxes to a series of controlled drops from different heights and angles to simulate the handling and transport they may experience during shipment and storage.

By conducting a drop test, manufacturers and quality control personnel can determine whether the carton boxes can withstand the rigors of the supply chain and protect the contents inside. This is especially important for fragile or valuable items that need to arrive at their destination intact.

A carton box that fails a drop test can lead to a range of issues, such as damaged or broken products, customer complaints, increased costs due to replacements or refunds, and damage to the brand's reputation. Therefore, ensuring that carton boxes meet the required drop test standards is crucial to test them with the use of the right lab testing instrument.

Carton drop testing is an important quality factor that can help identify potential weaknesses in carton boxes, ensuring that only those with sufficient strength and durability are used for shipping and storing products.

Testronix drop tester is one of the highly versatile laboratory testing instruments that can accurately conduct package drop tests on the packages and ensures that quality material will be delivered to the customers.

Now, let us discuss a brief about the Testronix drop testing instrument.
