FROMM Packaging has specialised testing equipment that can simulate the conditions a pallet goes through during transport. The new FROMM Transport Simulator enables FROMM to do in-house testing on load stabilisation and stress on load in transit, a first for the Packaging Industry in Australia.
Essentially the FROMM Transport Simulator replicates the forces a pallet will face during transit using sustained tilt testing. Loads with friction need to be titled to 38.5 degrees to replicate 0.8G force or 80% of the weight of the load in a forward braking situation to meet the National Transport Commission (NTC) guidelines.
The effects of these tests are monitored and recorded using a laser profile scanner. The load is scanned before and after the tilt to record and quantify the effect of the forces. The information is recorded and data is provided in a report format and shared with the customer.
The FROMM Transport Simulator testing means you can scientifically apply the right amount of packaging materials (wrap or strap) to contain the load during transport.
