The Lansmont PDT-56 is our entry level Precision Drop Tester used for smaller products and packages that don’t need electronic controls.

The Lansmont PDT-56 consists of a drop leaf assembly housed in a cast aluminum structure that supports the precision guides and the pneumatic cylinder. This support structure is mounted on a 3 inch (76 mm) diameter chrome-plated steel column that is rigidly fixed to the ½ inch (13mm) thick steel base plate with a heavy-duty collar.

The weight of the drop tester is counterbalanced, changing drop heights is easy; simply remove the lock pin on the rear of the machine, move the assembly up or down as required, and reinsert the pin. The steel column is pre-drilled to give 1 inch (25mm) drop height increments up to 36 inches (914 mm) and 6 inch (152 mm) increments up to 72 inches (1829 mm).

The drop test is initiated through the use of a foot switch, allowing safe, efficient cycling of the Precision Drop Tester. The On / Off switch and power indicator lamp are located on the side of the drop leaf housing, easily accessible to the operator.
