Impacts and vibrations inherent in shipping can damage components before they are assembled into medical equipment, and can damage finished products before they are installed. The ShockWatch family of products can help you detect damage early, when repairs or replacements are least expensive.
Our impact detection solutions are available in a wide variety of impact and durations to best match customer requirements. We have capabilities and price points to match every project and budget.
For example, the Flex indicator mounted onto curved surfaces, and tubes that can be embedded directly into devices, can record impacts during shipping and even during use. Because damage isn't always apparent, these solutions help you identify equipment that may have been knocked out of calibration or alignment during, or even after, delivery.
The ShockWatch 2 and reusable Mag 2000 are ideal for mounting to shipping containers. These indicate when an impact threshold has been exceeded and notify receivers to inspect for potential damage. For a complete journey profile, the ShockLog impact recorder can be used to record parameters such as impact, vibration, tilt and even GPS location.
These are just a few of our state-of-the-art solutions from ShockWatch. We also have a full range of temperature indicators and recorders to help protect reagents in medical devices.
