Getting the seal of approval from our food packaging customers
Protecting the integrity of our customer’s brand and product is what we do. And providing test and inspection solutions for flexible food packaging is how we do it. This involves creating solutions that will span across a whole range of applications within food packaging. We wanted to let you know a little about a seal strength testing solution for restorable food trays.
Who did we support?
We were working with a food manufacturer who is renowned for produced ready meals packaged into two well thermoform trays. These trays are sealed at the outside edge and across the well partition with the food grade film.
It was important for our customer to understand which cell’s seals would rupture first under stress and whether the rupture would occur at the partition or outside of the seal… thankfully our TM Electronics BT Integra Pack – a world renowned seal strength tester was able to do the trick.
Valves built into the test probe allowed separate and concurrent inflation seal strength tests to be performed. Thanks to this system, our customer got all the necessary information, repeatable results, and had no operator influence.
