We go beyond standard practices by conducting thorough test runs, aiming to minimize or eliminate any potential damage that might occur throughout the packaging’s life cycle.

Our dedicated testing facility is a standalone service, welcoming all types of packaging materials, including plastic, cardboard, and metal. Delving into the intricacies of a product’s journey from warehouse to retail or end-user, we meticulously design a testing circuit that addresses all conceivable risks along the way. Our ultimate goal is to achieve zero damage to stored or shipped products.

Equipped with cutting-edge machines precisely calibrated to simulate real-life situations, our tests ensure accuracy and reliability. Each test is thoroughly documented, and the results are accompanied by improvement suggestions, drawing upon our extensive experience with a diverse range of protective packaging solutions.

With Logimarkt, you can trust that your goods are in safe hands, as we continually strive for excellence in preventing damage and enhancing the overall reliability of your packaging solutions.

Shock/ Impact Testing

In the unpredictable world of logistics, containers face the constant threat of drops and bumps during transit or handling. At Logimarkt, we understand the critical need to fortify your packaging against such risks.

Our Shock/Impact Testing is designed to simulate real-world scenarios where containers may encounter collisions with other boxes or objects, such as forklifts. We conduct comparative tests that involve the use of protective materials like cushions to evaluate their efficacy in mitigating impact forces. This testing methodology is most effective when complemented with a vibration test, providing a comprehensive analysis of packaging resilience.

Vibration test

Vibration test

To ensure your packaging can handle the ups and downs of transportation, we use vibration tests. These tests involve constant and intermittent vibrations, gradually increasing in intensity until we find the breaking point for each package or product. We then compare this to potential real-world situations.

The vibration test is often paired with our shock test to give a complete picture of your packaging’s durability. At Logimarkt, we keep it straightforward – making sure your products stay secure during the twists and turns of the journey.

Horizontal shock testing

Horizontal Shock Testing

Our horizontal shock testing is designed to replicate the actual conditions of railcar coupling, truck docking, and the robust handling associated with forklift operations.

Tailored to match the anticipated stress levels during the handling of specific products, the test intensity is finely adjusted. This ensures your packaging is well-prepared to endure the horizontal shocks it may face during transit and handling. At Logimarkt, our focus is on delivering solutions that stand strong against the practical challenges of the transportation environment.

Compression pressure tester

Compression/ Pressure Test for Stackability Assessment

Our compression test is a crucial step in determining the stackability of a given package.

By incrementally increasing compression, we identify the breaking point. This critical measure establishes the stackability of boxes, pallets, or other containers, both in static storage and during transportation on the road.

We always ensure that the packaging we produce not only protects the contents but also optimizes space efficiency, providing reliable solutions for both storage and transit scenarios.

Drop test

Drop test for Box Durability

Specifically designed for boxes, the drop test is a targeted evaluation of their resilience.

Boxes are dropped from heights relevant to their intended applications. A series of ten drops are conducted: first on the most fragile corner, followed by drops on each adjacent edge, and finally, one on each face of the box. Post-drops, both aesthetic and functional damages to the box and its contents are meticulously examined. The positioning of items within the box is also considered. The primary objective of this test is to guarantee impeccable protection for your goods, ensuring that your packaging stands up to real-world impact scenarios.

Edge drop test

Edge Drop Test 

Tailored for substantial boxes or containers, the edge drop test assesses the durability of sizable packaging solutions. In this test, the packaging is deliberately dropped from a specific height onto a concrete floor, replicating potential real-world scenarios. Multiple drops are conducted, and the ensuing results are meticulously recorded.

This focused evaluation ensures that large-scale packaging not only withstands edge impacts but also maintains its structural integrity over repeated drops.

Pallet in rack test

Pallet-in-Rack Test for High-Stored Plastic Pallets

This test is a specialized examination ensuring both product safety and personnel well-being.

The procedure involves placing plastic pallets on a metal rack and loading them with sandbags. Over a 7-day period, the bending of the pallet is meticulously measured. The criterion for success is that the bending must not exceed 20 mm. This test is conducted at various locations on the metallic rack to comprehensively validate the safety and durability of the plastic pallets under different conditions.


Tilt Testing Stacked and Wrapped Products:

Primarily designed for assessing the stability of products stacked on pallets and enveloped in plastic foil, the tilt test is instrumental in ensuring the robustness of packaging.

Conducted by subjecting the load to various angles and stress, this test evaluates the effectiveness of the cling film, wrapping technique, and the number of layers required to withstand transportation conditions. The documentation resulting from this test includes recommendations for the type of cling film, the necessary tension, and, if applicable, the optimal settings for the wrapping machine.

Atmosphere testing

Atmosphere Testing 

The atmosphere testing procedure aims to analyze the stability of packaging under diverse humidity and temperature conditions.

Conducted within a testing chamber, the controlled environment allows for temperature variations ranging from -40 °C to +90 °C and humidity values spanning 5% to 95%. The results derived from this testing are instrumental in establishing limits for the tested packaging solution. Experts at Logimarkt ensure clients that their packaging can withstand a spectrum of climate conditions.

We prioritize thorough testing to ensure the resilience of your packaging, alleviating concerns related to the stresses of varying atmospheric conditions.

Analysis for end interest “AEI” test

AEI Test: Advanced Pressure Analysis for Packaging Design

The AEI (Analysis for End Interest) test is a sophisticated software simulation specifically tailored for pressure testing.

Primarily employed for thermoformed trays, this tool plays a crucial role in the design phase. It helps determine the optimal shape and material thickness when creating new items. Additionally, for existing packages, the AEI test highlights stress limits, aiding in refining and optimizing designs without the need for extensive prototyping or physical testing.

As a powerful design tool, the AEI test is an efficient way to ascertain critical parameters, ensuring that your packaging solutions are not only innovative but also resilient under varying pressure conditions. At Logimarkt, we leverage cutting-edge technology to enhance the efficiency and precision of our packaging design processes.
