The shock watch impact indicator is mainly used to apply on the outer package. The package is mainly divided into “cartons” and “plywood crates.” The material and weight are different between them. Do you know? The materials of the package affect the activation of height and set G value for shock watch impact indicator.
To See Is To Believe
From the following two videos, the activation height of the shock watch impact indicator is greatly different for cartons and plywood cases. The reason is that the impact force is attenuated to different degrees due to the material. The harder the material is, the more direct and accurate the effect of impact force transmission is.
Expected Activation of Height
The following table shows the expected activation of height meter for shock watch impact indicators on the carton. Each type of the impact indicator has its activation height.
Impact Label Test
From the previous article “『Correct Apply Position』Shock Indicator Labels“, the shock watch impact indicator is to be applied on the corner to the package. The reason is that the attenuation of the impact force transmitted to the indicator is minimal affected by the material of the package.
On the other hand, if on the wrong placement, it also affects the activation height of the impact indicator.
