Food & Drink
Every day consumers typically handle 20 to 30 different food & beverage packages, as we all know some our easier to work with than others. The basic functions of modern packaging, Protection, Function and Appearance all contribute to the overall impact that the packaging has for the product brand, and measuring and controlling these attributes is vital.
Before reaching consumers a packaged finished product must go through a process of forming, filling, loading and unloading, transportation, storage, exhibition and handling, where many destructive factors to its integrity and contents exists and where the protective aspect of the package is tested to prevent damage.
Companies across the world rely on the accuracy and ease of use of RDM Test Equipment, that's why you can be confident in your choice.
Benefits: • Quality Control of materials, process variables, and end of line materials/packages • Research & Development of the physical characteristics of materials and pack designs • Analyse Shelf Life attributes • Reduced costs, improved sustainability • Increase productivity through optimised package cycle rates, and reduced wastage • Protection/increase brand value • Quality Assurance with on-line analysis • Traceability / Regulatory / Contract compliance, using International Testing Standards.
