Drop Test

Just as the name implies, this test evaluates the ability of a package to handle and protect the product against collisions that occur in the distribution environment. Whether the package is dropped, knocked or simply banged around, the impact can cause product damage.

To conduct an impact test, the package is allowed to freefall onto corners, edges, and flat surfaces from a drop height dictated by the standard. Many test procedures conduct all of the impacts from the same drop height regardless of orientation.

Typical Procedures/Protocols
49 CFR 178.603
