ISTA package testing simulates the conditions packaged products must endure during transit. This is a multifaceted testing profile that encompasses many tests. At Rocky Mountain Testing Solutions, we feature package drop testing, transportation simulation testing, compression testing, incline impact testing, shock testing, vibration testing, and temperature and humidity to simulate the shipping environment that your package will be subjected to during its normal course of transport.
Vibration Testing: An Important Part of Package Testing
Vibration testing is important in transportation package testing because products shipped by trucks and planes generate various levels of vibration that packaged products must endure, and it is a manufacturer’s responsibility to ensure that products can withstand transport conditions. Not knowing what the packaged product can or cannot handle from certain vibration usually results in a damaged product when it reaches the customer.
RMTS uses electro-dynamic shakers and other vibration testing equipment to help manufacturers avoid this problem. Our vibration equipment determines the sensitivity of products to vibration input and also how well the package cushioning material used for package protection dissipates and reduces vibration force.

We offer physical and performance package testing with analytical and research services combined with the knowledge and test equipment necessary to properly test your package to ISTA and ASTM shipping standards. We also offer quality testing to comply with vendor standards and national and international regulatory legislation for all types of packaging materials. Package Drop testing, Transportation Simulation testing, Compression testing, Incline Impact Testing, Shock testing, Vibration testing, and Temperature and Humidity testing are all featured in our battery of tests to simulate the shipping environment that your package will be subjected to during its normal course of shipping.
We feature the LAB AccuDrop 160 Drop Tester, which is used to determine the ruggedness of packages and the effectiveness of their interior cushioning when they are exposed to impact and drops during handling operations. The LAB drop tester replicates the abuse inflicted on packages by human or equipment handling. Its large drop zone and adjustable drop height meet ISTA and ASTM standards.
At Rocky Mountain Testing Solutions, we also feature the LAB 4000V Transportation Simulator, which is used to determine the ability of packages and products to withstand shock and vibrations encountered during the course of typical transportation. The Lab 4000v provides circular-synchronous and non-synchronous motions that meet ISTA and ASTM standards. These motions best reproduce the effects packages experience during package shipment.
RMTS has also added the MTS servo-hydraulic shaker (shown here) to the new ASTM and ISTA package testing services capabilities available at our lab. Call our facility today to learn more about our ASTM 4169 package testing and ISTA package testing services.
RMTS maintains the range of equipment and the ISTA experience necessary to deliver accurate results, analysis, validation, and recommendations that you can rely on.
