Mecmesin Testing Systems Reduce Environmental Impact by Improving Packaging Design

Mecmesin’s affordable, reliable MultiTest-xt top-load testers help manufacturers reduce material usage in containers such as PET bottles by improving packaging design and ensuring packaging integrity. Environmental protection regulations limit the amount of primary resource material used in single-trip containers.

 

By analyzing the results from top-load tests, manufacturers can assess whether they can reduce material used in their containers; a process called downgauging. This reduces production costs and the impact on the environment.

 

Top-load testing also ensures that containers can withstand top-load crushing, preventing deformation or collapse during capping, storage or distribution. The British-made testers are operated by an easy-to-use touch-screen, ideal for fast and efficient testing on the production floor.
