Instability is particularly an issue for taller unit loads (such as container shipments) and pallets, and loads where light weighting and cost saving projects have eliminated corrugated material. Instability typically occurs from:
  • High displacement (low frequency) hazard events
  • Road vehicle cornering or braking
  • Mechanical and automated handling machinery (including fork lift trucks, pallet trucks and pallet conveyor systems).

Smithers have developed our own stability test method, whereby we use an inclined impact tester. Using this, our experts are able to identify suitable packaging solutions to address stability issues and minimize loss.
