EDS can evaluate your package's ability to withstand the vibratory effects encountered in the distribution environment.
Both random and repetitive impact testing can be performed utilizing our 48" x 48" hydraulic vibration system or our 8' x 8' rotational/vertical linear vibration table.
Capacity to test units weighing 2,000 lbs or more.
Vibration testing to meet ASTM, ISTA, Item 180 and TAPPI.
Vibration testing of individual cartons, displays and components up to full pallet loads.
Vibration analysis of packaged and unpackaged product to define its natural frequency (fn).
Free Fall Drop Testing Incline Impact Testing to comply with ASTM and ISTA requirements
Large platform [49" x 29"] allows for a true, flat 48.00" drop height for packages weighing up to 500 pounds.
Multi-channel accelerometer instrumentation to provide both shock and deflection of your product during dynamic testing.
Large scale [87" x 80"] platform lets you test oversized units in excess of 1,000 pounds.
Measurements of velocity are reported in feet or inches per second.
We are able to record G shock to specific components within this test format.
Large rack-mounted computer drives to large scale medical equipment can be monitored for shock.
Shock & Drop tests allow for defining the fragility of your products. This data enables EDS Package Testing to advise you of the best method to manage the hazards found within the distribution environment.
Conditioning and accelerated aging capabilities to 70°C and humidity to 95% RH.
8' x 8' walk-in chamber.
Environmental testing to define the fragility of a product.
Validate the adequacy of packaging under adverse and extreme environmental conditions.
Unlimited material options for evaluation.
Individual packages up to full palletized loads.
All methods meeting ISTA procedures for atmospheric preconditioning. (1c,d,f,2a,b)
Test progress and results are reported in graphical form for performance analysis.
Multiple tests may be super-imposed for comparison analysis.
Large 60” x 60” x 100” platen opening allows testing of single packages and palletized loads.
45,000 lbs. of evenly distributed compressive force.
Dynamic testing to ISTA and ASTM Procedures.
Compression experiments and testing to validate the adequacy of package stability under distribution and warehousing conditions.
Aerobic and anaerobic Biodegradability and compost ability testing, of plastics, paper, combined papers and films, rubber and most manufactured products.
EDS Package Testing is a specialized independent testing facility focused on determination of biodegradation of manufactured products. We test to existing recognized methods and discover innovative new technologies to establish a scientific basis for biodegradation.
Testing Options Include:
Mass Loss Analysis - LW04 Method.
Standard Test Method for Determining Aerobic Biodegradation in Soil of Plastic Materials or Residual Plastic Materials After Composting.
Standard Test Method for Determining Anaerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials Under High-Solids Anaerobic-Digestion Conditions Considering Gas Evolution.
Solar (UV) & Weather Testing will test your products resistance to sunlight, UV degradation and exposure to weather. We can test both flat panels and 3-Dimensional parts.
Typical specifications include ASTM and ISO.
We at Eds Package Testing continuously add new methods and equipment to better serve our customers unique needs. Leadership in providing data to our clients that meet regulatory agency requirements is our objective.
