PACKAGING TESTS

WE TEST WHAT YOUR PACKAGING CAN WITHSTAND!

Packaging testing simulates mechanical and climatic stresses to which packaging is subjected during transport, handling and storage. Thrusts, impacts, shocks and pressure loads are simulated in the laboratory. Ideally, their contents remain undamaged – and if not, we provide you with appropriate suggestions for improvement.

Stress-resistant packaging protects for days, weeks and months, no matter where the journey takes you. Thanks to standardized packaging tests, shippers know exactly which and how much packaging is required. When goods travel around the globe, vibrations, shocks, fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels put them under extreme stress.

By carrying out a transport test on packages and load units ready for shipment, we uncover possible weak points in good time. In our accredited test laboratory in Hamburg, we work according to national and international standards for packaging testing. Here we develop customized packaging solutions in which the components goods – packaging – means of transport interact optimally.

Transport and environmental simulation

On their way from the production site to the end customer, your products encounter a variety of environmental influences: shocks, vibrations, heat, cold, etc. Your packaging solution should protect against all these stresses. Take the test with our certified test methods.

Packaging materials, packaging and packaging aids

Different packing aids ensure safe, correct and transportable packaging. In our accredited laboratory, we test, for example, your corrugated board, the absorption capacity of desiccant bags and, of course, the load-bearing capacity of your pallets.

Pharmaceutical and medical devices

To enable doctors to work hygienically, critical medical devices must be sterile and remain so after transport and storage. In our test laboratory, we ensure that your packaging solution meets this requirement.

WE WORK WITH TRIED AND TESTED TESTING PROGRAMMES FOR PACKAGING TESTING AND SHIPPING SIMULATION:

  • Drop tests for transport packaging
  • Vibration tests for loading units
  • Climatic tests for packaging materials or components
  • Mechanical shock tests
  • Leak tests for liquid containers
  • Barrier tests for medical packaging
  • Ageing tests for equipment and materials
  • Tensile tests e.g. for films and sterile packaging

THE TESTING FACILITIES OF OUR LABORATORIES

Our laboratories have testing equipment with which we examine packaging materials, packaging and packaging aids to determine how well they survive transport by truck, train, plane or ship. We examine the general functionality of the materials as well as the mechanical, climatic or chemical resilience of a packaging solution.

In addition to the packaging tests, we also have testing equipment for environmental simulations. We can carry out these on packages, load units, but also on electronic devices, individual components and their materials.
