The intelligent packaging means following a number of different ways to preserve the quality of the contents, especially food items, using the high-quality packaging materials. The traceability and record keeping are part of the intelligent packaging. The containers used for storing the food items must be tested from all angles. The testing instruments solve the quality related issues of all materials such as plastic, paperboard, corrugated boxes, PET, Preform, etc., used in packaging manufacturing.
Vital Testing Procedures performed by Testing Instruments
The compression testing is performed to evaluate the amount of weight a package can withstand. The test is appropriate for the packaging raw materials. The strength of stacked boxes, tertiary packaging, etc., is tested to check the vertical load. During the testing procedures, an external pressure is applied to the container until failure.
The tensile testing is a form of mechanical testing performed on packaging materials to evaluate the maximum load that can be applied to a material before it ruptures completely. It is a type of pulling test that measures the strength of board, plastic, and paper. The elastic behavior of the material is measured to verify the strength or elongation of materials.
The bursting testing is performed to check the durability and strength of the cartons. If the material is too weak, it could damage, and the too strong material is not required as it could be very expensive. During the bursting testing, the force required to rupture or puncture corrugated boxes is measured. The force is indirectly relation the ability of the box to endure the external and internal forces that protect the content during storage or transit.
The Edge Crush Testing is performed to determine the stacking ability of cartons and corrugated boxes. The edgewise compressive strength of corrugated boxes is measured. The bursting testing and edge crush testing are vital procedures that assist in selecting an appropriate carton and box.
The seals are important for packaging of foods and other items. The mechanical strength and other factors are checked for easy to open seals. The seal strength is vital during distribution, storage and transportation. The adhesion ability is tested for safe packaging of the goods.
The water resistance ability, top-load testing, and many other testing procedures are performed using the high-quality, advanced, reliable testing equipment. If you are an intelligent manufacture, then adapt the habit of quality testing of your materials to prevent the cost-effective repair and replacement. The quality can turn a common product to a branded one. Think of testing devices think of quality.
