Would you ever buy something that has a faded-out label? I would not, never. This gives a clear picture of the quality management of the product. If the producer is not worried about the appearance of the product, the quality of the content inside is bit skeptical. The quality management process starts right from choosing the raw material and keep on going until the product reaches to the customer. This is why packaging plays a very important role. From keeping the inside content safe to delivering the right information through labels, everything is to be considered for QC. Irrespective of the industry or the end consumer, it is very important to provide information about the product to the customer and labels do that job.
How to test the durability of the labels?
Scuff resistance tester is the instruments that you need to check the printability of the labels. In this test, two labels are rub against each other for defined number of rotations. Once the test is over, a visual inspection is done to see the after effects.
In this machine, the material to be tested is fixed on the rotating fixture with printed side downwards. Another sample is placed on the fixture at the bottom with printed side up. This fixture is stationary. The operator set the number of rotations through a preset counter. The effect of scuffing is checked by visual inspection.
