Project Description

package ISTA drop tester

ISTA Pneumatic Package Drop Tester China Manufacturer

This ISTA Drop Tester belongs to a precision pneumatic Drop Tester that is specially used to simulate the free fall of the complete and filled transport packaging carton from a certain height. It helps you predict the possible damage to the package and contents inside due to the drop impact caused during handling, reloading, and unloading in the actual transportation process. This ISTA drop tester is able to evaluate the impact resistance of the cartons during the handling process and the rationality of the packaging design, which is conducive to improving the packaging material. This drop tester machine is designed to meet various international standards such as IEC ISO ASTM ISTA JIS FedEx and Amazon.

This ISTA drop test machine can perform a free fall test on the package’s surfaces, corners, and edges. It is equipped with a digital display for height presentation and adopts an encoder for height tracking to control the drop height accurately, and the error does not exceed the preset drop height of 2% or 10 mm. The angle error between the impact surface of the drop angle and the plane of the bottom plate is less than or equal to 1 degree.

The single-wing drop test machine and the double-wing drop test machine have a common release mechanism without instantaneous acceleration function to cause the specimen to fall freely, so the price is lower. It is more suitable for the drop test in the factory.

The ISTA Pneumatic drop tester is characterized by a pneumatic release mechanism to drop the specimen. Its release speed to the sample is more than three times the acceleration, which is much faster than the ordinary electronic drop test machine. This dramatically helps to reduce the interference to the test process and improves the accuracy of the test results. It is In line with international testing standards, becoming the first choice of many certified laboratories. FedEx, UPS International Express, and Amazon Logistics also select the pneumatic drop tester to perform the drop test on packages smaller than 68 kg.

  • The machine structure is stable and solid, with a vast weight-bearing range of up to 100 kg.

  • Due to a single-arm structure, you only need a small area for this drop tester’s installation.

  • The High-velocity air-driven mechanism enables the separation acceleration between the bracket and the specimen to be greater than 3G.

  • It is equipped with a hydraulic damper to improve stability and reduce noise, which helps prolong the service life of the drop tester.

  • Adopts a ball screw transmission and uses an encoder to detect the height of ascent and descent of the test sample, with an electric reset function.

  • It can perform the drop of the surface, corner and edge of the sample.

  • The controller is separated from the drop machine, and the LED intuitively displays the current height.

  • Equipped with a self-locking screw lifting device to prevent accidental fall of the support arm.

  • The safety fence is optional.

  • The support bracket and bottom plate can be expanded.

  • Complies with various international standards such as ASTM, IEC, ISO, ISTA, etc.
