In the competitive landscape of packaging solutions, the importance of efficiency and innovation cannot be overstated. A leading American Packaging Firm, recognized for its commitment to quality and sustainability, recently embarked on a transformative journey to elevate its service offerings.

By integrating Safe Load Testing Technologies’ state-of-the-art Transport Simulation Machines into their operations, they have not only underscored their dedication to excellence but also redefined what’s possible in packaging efficiency and product safety.

The packaging industry in the United States was estimated at USD 193.13 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 222.59 billion by 2028, growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 2.88% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

This figure reflects the investment in the manufacturing of packaging and packaging materials in the country, covering a wide range of products and solutions for various sectors of the economy.

In this situation, improving packaging is captivating due to the extensive benefits offered by transport simulation machines. These benefits extend beyond simply preserving the integrity of products during shipping to include the vital insights that can be gained through the use of suitable transport simulation equipment.

A box isn’t just a box. Your packaging impacts your entire operation.

Leading American Packaging Firm implements new equipment at its advanced packaging testing lab

Currently, the Multinational Packaging Firm boasts a substantial laboratory dedicated to testing the packaging of its thousands of clients. The goal is to equip the lab with machines that fulfill several key objectives:

Sustainability: The firm aims to integrate sustainable practices into its operations, ensuring that the testing processes minimize environmental impact. This approach not only reflects a commitment to environmental stewardship but also aligns with the growing consumer demand for eco-friendly products and services.
Cost Reduction for Clients: By leveraging advanced technology and efficient testing methodologies, the firm seeks to lower the costs associated with packaging testing for its clients. This cost-saving measure can be a significant competitive advantage, making it more affordable for clients to ensure their packaging meets the highest standards of quality and durability.
Packaging Optimization: The focus is also on optimizing packaging to ensure it is not only protective and functional but also cost-effective and environmentally friendly. Optimization involves assessing various packaging materials and designs to find the best solution that meets the product’s needs while also considering sustainability and cost-efficiency.

Load Stability Tester

The Acceleration Sled is a cutting-edge solution designed to replicate horizontal accelerations and decelerations (such as speeding up, slowing down, and braking) encountered through various means of handling and transportation.

This system is utilized to test the durability and safety of loads, ensuring they can withstand the forces they are subjected to during transit.

Safeguard barriers to carry out tests safely
Tests up to 1g
High-performance servo motor
Designed for easy loading with pallet stacker
Custom stroke
Safe Load Testing: Natural frequency module able to conduct sine sweep testing and fatigue testing
Sine – Sweep Test:  test method that involves applying a sinusoidal signal that gradually varies in frequency across a specified range, while measuring the response of the object under test. This type of testing is used to assess the durability of materials or components.
Fatigue testing is a process used to determine the durability and longevity of materials or components under repeated or varying stress over time. It tests the ability of an item to withstand the wear and tear of its expected life cycle, identifying at what point it may fail due to material fatigue. This is crucial for predicting product lifespan and ensuring safety and reliability in its application.

Discover the top 5 advantages provided by the Multinational Packaging Company using the Load Stability Tester

1. Simulates Real-World Transportation Forces: Mimic the sustained, low-frequency forces experienced during vehicle movements such as acceleration, turning, and braking.

2.Achieve Unit Load Stability and Integrity: Determines whether loads remain cohesive and stable for transportation, testing their resilience and coherence. These evaluations allow organizations to identify and correct packaging weaknesses, leading to fewer damages during shipping, cost reductions, and enhanced consumer satisfaction.

3. Enhance Optimization and Sustainability: The innSlide solutions enable organizations to refine their distribution packaging strategies, achieving on average a 25-30% decrease in stretch film usage for tertiary packaging. This adjustment contributes to an average 15-20% reduction in CO2 emissions and packaging materials waste.

4. Compliance with Standards: Aligns with EUMOS 40509 standards and FMCSA Cargo Securement regulations, guaranteeing compliance with industry norms.

5. Customization and Performance Enhancement: Provides access to state-of-the-art, user-friendly software options like the innSlide ST, enabling users to customize tests for acceleration, such as roundabout tests, a mix of trapezoidal tests, intermittent or abrupt stoppages. Additionally, tools like the Boomerang Module or the innVision enhance the efficacy of testing procedures.

Clamp Tester

The innClamp series is engineered to assess the protective capabilities of product packaging when subjected to horizontal compression forces, like those encountered during  automated warehouse storage.

This process is widely utilized by numerous e-commerce and parcel companies to evaluate the ability of product packaging, components, and materials to withstand these compressive forces, thereby ensuring the loads are validated before they enter the actual distribution cycle.
