This zero-distance drop tester is mainly applicable to packages with a heavy mass or large volume. For large-scale packaged goods, their vertical drop height during transportation and handling is relatively low, and their required drop test height is also relatively low. Therefore, the zero drop testing machine is specially used to test such large samples.
The drop tester is equipped with an “E”-shaped “Fork” that can move down faster than the acceleration of gravity as a bracket. Before the test, any one of the specimen’s faces, edges, or corners can be preset to be towards the bottom plate. During the test, the bracket moves downwards at a much higher speed than that of the specimen until it is flat embedded into the base plate under the action of the high-efficiency shock absorber. The acceleration of the fork is greater than 3G to ensure that the bracket is separated from the specimen before the specimen impact and achieve a free fall of the specimen.
