Packaging Vibration Testing

Vibration testing has an important role during vehicle development allowing test engineers to characterize the effect of long-term, road-induced vibration and shock on the performance and service life of automotive systems and vehicle/engine components.

Applicable Packaging Software

Sine

Enter two values out of the four between Acceleration, Frequency, Velocity, or Displacement, and the calculator will do the rest.

Random

Measure your products fatigue and calculate its lifespan. Commonly used life acceleration techniques are applied to shorten test time.

Shock/Transient Capture

Products are at risk of being dropped or damaged during shipping and handling.

Field Data Replication

Reproduce, in your test lab on your shaker, the actual acceleration waveform you measure in the field.

Medical Package Vibration Testing

In the medical industry, the use of vibration testing is critical since hidden damage from vibration can have significant side affects. Vibration affects individual components in a product, the product itself, the product with packaging and packages stacked together. Some common test standards for production testing are ASTM D999 and D3580.

ISTA 6-Amazon.com-SIOC is a requirement for FFP and SIOC Certification

ISTA 6-Amazon.com-Over Boxing is a requirement for PFP Certification

Understanding Amazon Packaging

Drop Shock Testing

Packages are at risk of being dropped or damaged during handling and shipping. Measure your packages resistance to shock or impact. Determine the effectiveness of package protection cushioning and measure the shock transmitted to a product.

ObserVR1000: a 3-in-1 Tool for Packaging Labs

Gather your data using the autonomous ObserVR1000

Station-to-station Transient Capture. Select a trigger level, slope, channel, and duration to capture your transient events.

 

Conveniently use the ObserVR1000 to drive ANY electrodynamic or servohydraulic shaker.

Compare Field Data to a Specification

Industry standard vibration tests are used by hundreds of labs to test thousands of products every year. But how closely do the standard tests duplicate the real-world operational environment of those products? Are you over or under testing your product? Is this the best representation of a real world environment?

Industry standards vs real-world data

Field Data Replication

Reproduce your data 1:1 as it happened in the real world. This can be time consuming.

Random Import

Run your recorded data. Run Random peaks as average, peak hold or somewhere in the middle. But, for how long?

Fatigue Damage Spectrum

Real world data on the shaker in an accelerated way.
