Part 2: Types of Testing in the Packaging Industry

Posted: Jun 26, 2017 | Categories: Testing
Testing can help the packaging industry avoid costly financial, environmental, and brand reputation penalties associated with packaging. Package testing ensures that packaging can stand up to vibrations and the extreme variances in temperature and humidity associated with shipping. Several tests exist for the packaging industry. D 4169 is the standard practice for performance testing, as it helps predict the performance of new or redesigned packages when distributed by any mode of transport. ISTA 3A simulates individual packaged products’ shipment through a parcel delivery system. ISTA 7D tests thermal performance by evaluating the effects of external temperature exposure and analyzing packaged

Part 1: Testing in the Packaging Industry

Posted: May 17, 2017 | Categories: Testing
Packaging material is essential for shipping products around the world. Preventing damage is one of the primary functions of packaging. Packages must be durable enough to withstand complex and sometimes rough-and-tumble shipping that can damage expensive or fragile cargo. Packaging plays an essential role in ensuring product safety. Effective packaging is particularly important for the delivery of temperature-sensitive products requiring effective thermal packaging, products sensitive to vibration and for products with specific regulation and compliance needs. Vaccines and clinical drugs require thermal packaging that maintains tight temperature parameters across a number of shipping platforms, for example, while temperature-sensitive packaging keeps

Putting Batteries to the Test

Posted: Sep 23, 2016 | Categories: Testing
For most of us, our days start off with the beeping of an alarm, maybe even hitting the snooze button a few times. We then reach for our cell phones on the nightstand and unplug it from the charger to check our emails or scroll through social media feeds. While grabbing a cup of coffee we might use the remote to turn on the TV and check the news before jumping in our cars to head to work. Within the first hour of our days we are have already used three or more items that require a battery. In order

Tenney Environmental Walk-In Chambers

Posted: Jan 22, 2016 | Categories: Testing
To say that automotive, electronics, aerospace, and defense components need to be tested as thoroughly as possible before they reach the end user is something of an understatement. For a product to prove its worth, it cannot just work well on paper - a technical specifications sheet can only carry you so far. Testing in various real-world environments is a necessity before bringing a product to market. This testing may include extreme temperature ranges or varying levels of humidity. The environmental walk-in chambers from Tenney are designed to simulate the harsh realities of product use in a wide range of

Environmental Testing: Improving the Life Span of Electronics: Part-2

Posted: May 23, 2018 | Categories: Testing
In Part-1, we went over the importance of conducting environmental tests for electronic products. The reason that you can keep the same hairdryer for five years, the same TV for ten years, and the same car for fifteen years is due to product testing, most of which can be done in a Tenney Environmental Test Chamber. Here in Part-2 we will go over the different types of environmental testing: simulation vs. stimulation. Simulation tests the product in the environment in which it normally operates. In other words, simulation tests how well the electronics perform in normal temperature, humidity, and vibration
