How is sustainability impacting can testing equipment?

A drive towards sustainability is rapidly disrupting supply chains across many industries. It’s hardly surprising that this topic touches many aspects of packaging, production, and quality control processes in the beverage space – particularly in the 2 piece can making process.

There’s an expectation on manufacturers and production lines to do everything they can to discover sustainable solutions. But how does this impact can inspection? And how can manufacturers ensure they have the right packaging inspection equipment to minimize unexpected beverage can defects brought about by innovation?

New materials disrupting can inspection

Consumers are thirsty for their favorite drink, but they could just as easily get a taste for a new, more sustainable brand – beverage manufacturers producing 2 piece aluminum cans have to factor this in.

All over the world, and across multiple markets, beverage brands are adapting their packaging processes to become greener – in fact, just this year a large brewer announced they were making new packaging using barley.

And in 2020, a leading bottled water company revealed a new bottle that was made using 100% recycled plastic and designed using an engraved logo – removing the need for additional labelling. Yet likely increasing the need for quality packaging inspection equipment…

The impact on packaging initiatives

As we become more environmentally conscious, businesses are exploring new ways to package up their beverage – both through the adoption of different materials and the use of these materials to create new shapes and styles when dealing with traditional 2 piece aluminum cans.

This move towards sustainable packaging gives brands an opportunity. There’s a real chance for manufacturers to seize this moment, adapt, and get creative with packaging.

But if manufacturers are using new materials in their packaging, it’s critical that the right can testing equipment is in place to ensure quality. This means that businesses need the best can inspection solutions available.

At Industrial Physics, we have a host of solutions in place to minimize beverage can defects – whether you’re looking for double seam inspection equipment to reduce double seam defects, label inspection solutions to ensure the perfection of packaging, or code reading solutions to achieve accuracy, we can help.
