Packaging testing is a comprehensive process that simulates various activities in a laboratory environment to evaluate the effectiveness of protection of goods during actual transportation. ISTA, the International Safe Transit Association, is an organization that focuses on specific issues related to transportation packaging. The industry testing standards developed by ISTA are trusted worldwide and can inform global manufacturers on how to respond to constantly changing hazards in the global transportation environment. The organization has pioneered packaging performance testing for over 60 years and has become the most trusted, knowledgeable, and respected authority in the field of packaging performance testing.
The goal of packaging testing is to reduce damage and warranty claims, meet certain supplier certification standards, and lower transportation costs through lighter and smaller packaging. Packaging testing can help reduce the costs associated with potential product losses during transportation. Early product testing can help alleviate these issues and prevent potential losses that may require more costs to remedy later in the development cycle. By ensuring that your package is safe throughout the entire transportation process, packaging testing can also reduce customer complaints and minimize replacement claims from retailers for damaged goods.
Amazon package test and transit test packaging is a scientific technology that studies the performance testing and analysis of packaging materials, packaging containers, and packaging components, and is used to test the performance of packaging materials and packaging containers and evaluate the performance of packaging components in the flow process. It includes not only performance testing and analysis of packaging materials, packaging containers, and packaging components, but also various packaging test methods with ongoing reliability test.
That is, under certain circulation conditions, to test whether the protective performance of the packaging components is good; to examine potential damages of packaging components and study their causes and preventive measures; to compare the strengths and weaknesses of different packaging solutions; and to inspect the performance of packaging components and the packaging materials and packaging containers used in accordance with relevant standards, regulations, and laws.
The testing items for carton packaging testing include transportation, loading and unloading, vibration, and drop tests.
Drop the packaged product in the carton from a specified height in different positions and test the number of drops before the packaging material or package inside the carton is damaged, or the number of drops during transportation.
Inclined impact test
Rotate the carton on a skid and slide it down an inclined plane from a certain height, and then impact it on the baffle. It is similar to the emergency braking situation during transportation.
Put the packaged product in the carton on a vibration table, subjecting it to horizontal and vertical vibrations, or simultaneous bidirectional vibrations. After a certain period of time, check the condition of the product or the time it takes for the product or carton to be damaged.
Hexagonal drum rotation test
Place the carton in a hexagonal drum with an impact plate, rotate it a specified number of turns and frequency, and then check for damage to the product or the carton.
