Pallet Testing

Comparing and testing different pallet designs produces peak performance indicators that can be used to evaluate a pallet design’s strength, durability, and overall functionality. This kind of testing and evaluation affords us an acute understanding of the performance of the product and the impact of any design changes made to the product, such as new material or even new production locations. During this process, both the performance of individual elements or the packaging system as a whole, may be evaluated and validated.

What is Pallet Testing?

Pallet Testing assures that your pallets can hold and support full unit loads of products throughout transit. Testing pallets is vital for confirming that the base level structure employed will be able to offer adequate protection for the products that it will hold during both transportation and storage. Utilizing revered testing standards in a controlled environment, pallet testing allows a direct comparison of products, including an assessment of structural materials and design configurations used. The pallet testing process itself’s main goal is to analyze and determine whether the package design currently desired will reliably work in order to make sure that your packaged goods are getting from point A to point B via pallets. Purple Diamond will evaluate strength, in the pallet and the packaged product. The main question looking to be answered is whether or not the load will hold up without breaking at some point during the package journey?

How We Test for Pallet Durability | Pallet Testing

Sample data gathered from testing is critical to effectively evaluate pallet durability and assess the pallet’s ability to withstand associated hazards during distribution, handling, or storage. Purple Diamond’s dedicated Pallet Testing Lab is able to analyze pallet durability through testing in compliance with ASTM D1185-98a and ISO 8611-1.
