Vibration is a complex subject, modes of transport have different natural frequencies which if similar to that of the product can cause serious damage.
Neal Brothers have successfully carried out a number of vibration tests at recognised test centres in order to prove the effectiveness of a pack design.
Good packaging design can use cushioning effectively to “dampen” the external vibration and avoid product damage.
Test results are again captured by placing sensors at appropriate points on the product and are analysed by vibration test software.
The resulting sine waves reflect the effectiveness of the cushioning within the pack in reducing excessive transmission of energy to the product, thereby eliminating damage.
