Packaging Design and Manufacturing Assessment

Measure the effectiveness of the sealing process and optimize packaging design.

Pressure Measurement Improves Packaging Design and Sealing

 

packaging applications for I-Scan

Identifying defects in product packaging, as well as optimizing their manufacturing process, is essential for keeping products fresh, sanitary, and free of damage. The I-Scan® system can be used to measure the effectiveness of various packaging seals to prevent leakage and ensure quality, a critical focus for packaging OEMs and their users. Using a software API, Bonfiglioli Engineering physically integrated the I-Scan system into their machine (top left) which determines if air is leaking from blister packs by detecting cavities with low pressure . The interface pressure data that was captured can be used to conduct quality control tests and develop optimal packaging designs.

By testing the pressure produced by the clamp sealing assembly, I-Scan can also determine if the packaging machine is delivering an effective seal to the product. The resulting pressure data can help troubleshoot mechanical problems, minimizing waste during production. The information can also be used for research and development to improve sealing machine design.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

packaging applications for I-Scan - the Grip System

 

 

 

 

To further assess packaging design, the Grip™ system evaluates the ergonomics of packaging materials to measure the amount of force required to open, squeeze, and close containers. Areas on the hand and fingers that experience high forces during various gripping activities can be easily identified. The packaging can then be modified to become more ergonomic and functional.
