E1: Design Protection against Drop and Shocks

Before designing the package you need data on different packaging materials. You need information on the materials capability to absorb shocks. The shock tester can be used for the measurement of material data.

Shok - måling af polser

You need a fixture and a plate with an accelerometer and a number of different loads as illustrated on the figure. You need for every type of material and material thickness the absorption from drops from different drop heights and static loads.

The result is cushion curves as illustrated on next page.
