Putting Containment to the Test

There are two ways to tell if your containment is adequate for your product. One way is to try and fail. The other way is to test and know.

Putting Containment to the Test

There are two ways to tell if your containment is adequate for your product. One way is to try and fail. The other way is to test and know.

We put your pallets through all the motions and challenges experienced in a real-world shipping situation, including:

The Transportation Simulator, which tilts the load up to 38 degrees to simulate and sustain up to 0.8 Gs of force. Other variables include the dwell and vibration along with vibration frequency. This test simulates turning, uphill and downhill grades, and acceleration events.

The Impact Tester generates a high impact force, over a very short duration, to the pallet and is determined by the angle of the frame and distance its sled travels. Sophisticated instrumentation measures the precise g-force and velocity achieved, and quantifies the degree of load shift that occurs. Slow-motion cameras record the effects of acceleration to the load. The purpose of this test is to simulate a truck making hard contact with the dock bumpers or impacts from rail car coupling.

The Horizontal Accelerator rapidly accelerates a sled in a horizonal plane to a precise velocity, using a sophisticated hydraulic system. Sophisticated instrumentation measures the precise g-force and velocity achieved, and quantifies the degree of load shift that occurs. Slow-motion cameras record the effects of acceleration to the load.

When all testing is completed, we deliver a comprehensive report covering all testing data, detailed results, analysis, conclusion, and recommendations.
