The MAXDROP™ and AccuDrop™ series of precision drop testers represents the ultimate dimension in drop testing and incline impact testing for product and package performance verification. With five models and payload capacities up to 1320 lbs. (600kg), these drop testers provide the ability to match the needs of global markets with a model to meet a wide range of products, facilities, and budget constraints. Also available is a line of release hooks for drop testing extra-extra large and heavy payloads.
Incline Impact testers are used to simulate the handling of crates, palletized loads, and rail car carriers. Several sizes are available for testing palletized loads and single products up to 12,000 lbs. (5,454 kg). A complete line of impact recording instrumentation will provide you with the qualitative results and documentation required to verify the perfomance of your product or packaged system.
Purpose - lost cost mechanical shaker for testing products and components to in-service vibration conditions between 8 to 60Hz. Maximum acceleration to 3.2G is standard, up to 10G optionally.
In today's world, products and packaging are required to withstand an extensive amount of testing before reaching the distribution environment. Often, many products are subjected to a specific test standard that requires the shock test and for products to survive various shock levels in an operating environment requires in-house testing of products during design and evaluation stages. L.A.B. Equipment, Inc.'s SD-series of mechanical free-fall test systems produces accurate and repeatable half-sine, squarewave and sawtooth pulses in accordance with military and industry specifications.
