Drop Testing is a service we offer, We take the customers product with our packaging and do a 1a 2a 3a 4a or a variety of other drop tests depending on your needs. We get a performance review of how the packaging would hold up under certain conditions. It is dropped on all four corners and it is put under duress. It is a good indicator of what kind of stress it will be put under from the time it leaves the manufacturer until it gets to the end user. We are also able to offer the customer hard data in a form of a report analysis or a flash drive.
Drop tests are usually for high end users in the technology or aerospace field, regarding internal components that are electronics that could be damaged in a hard drop, or even different weather conditions. Anyone can get a drop test however. Prices vary.
