Minor package modifications can have major effects on damage protection of shipped goods. Emerson’s Transportation Simulators & Shakers, Incline Impact (Conbur) Testers, and Freefall Package Drop Testers are excellent for testing the destructive shock and vibrations goods are likely to incur during product shipment, package impacts encountered during handling and shipment, and rail-car humping and pallet marshaling. By testing your package designs before bulk shipment commitments are made, you can save money, time, and resources.
If you have Random Vibration testing needs, please contact us.


Transportation Shakers and Simulators

Highlights

  • From portable, tabletop, to unlimited drop heights, and capacities from 20 lbs to 3,000 lbs
  • Corner and edge drop fixture standard
  • Drop heights from 4″ to 84″ and custom
  • PC-based, touch screen controls
  • Optional foot pedal
  • Forklift tubes in 100 lb models and up for easy relocation

Description

The Drop Tester is supplied with a variety of standard features to earn its reputation as the industry standard. The machines are designed to drop vertical one inch prior to drop arm swing to ensure that package is not subject to rotation. This motion 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 infinity 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.
