Printability Testing

Protection against printability problems

Printability – the capacity of paper or card types to print – is an important consideration for companies across a huge range of industries. From instruction manuals to poster and packaging, printability testing is vital.  

You need to know that when you set out to share a design, information or guidelines, they’re going to stay clear, crisp and legible – no matter what line of business you’re in.  

Be precise, with printability testing

There’s little point in investing in your brand, designing an eye-catching logo, and creating a protective package that stands out on the shelves if the paper you have chosen doesn’t work well with the inks you have selected! 

Whether you make packaging for others, or you are deciding upon the type of flexible packaging you need for your product, printability testing will help you create the best possible final product.  

A printability testing device from Industrial Physics will give you the answer to most paper printability and porosity questions you may have – guiding your research and development decisions. For example, if you want to measure scuffing or ink rub resistance, our Digital Ink Rub Tester 10-20 offers an easy and accurate solution. On the other hand, the Messmer Büchel – Parker Print-Surf is perfect for measuring the surface roughness of anything from fine paper to films and foil, letting you test the printability properties of a variety of surfaces.  

Reliable results with accurate printability testing

Our printability devices will ensure that your chosen packaging provides the clear and sharp images you need, with no ink displacement. Our test and inspection solutions support scuffing or ink rub resistance testing, from dry rub, wet rub, and wet bleed analysis – through to transfer, wet smear, and functional rub measurement. Perfect for packaging, leaflets, manuals and much more.
