Freefall Package Drop Testers

Emerson Drop Testers are supplied with a variety of standard features that earn our drop testers their reputation as the industry standard. The machines are designed to drop vertical one inch prior to drop-arm swing to ensure that packages are not subject to rotation. This also eliminates a “mule-kick” motion jeopardizing safety to the rear of the drop tester.

Our drop testers are designed so packages may be released from any angle and be assured of landing in the same position. Special fixtures are available to allow for corner and edge drops.

Manual models require no power or air facilities. The mechanism is spring-actuated and the geometry requires little effort to reset the arm to the loaded drop position. The drop height is adjustable and references a scale to set drop height.

  • 100 lb models and up utilize a touch screen control to set drop height, auto return, and drop release
  • 500 lb models and up utilize a hydraulic lift system
