The Crease & Stiffness Tester is used to test carton board, paper, printing and packaging materials. These are important measures to have correct and
uniform. As board stiffness and crease recovery (spring back) is important in the performance of cartons on high-speed packaging machines and when manual folding. The value of crease stiffness is technically important in the folding of carton blanks during their erection and closure.

The crease recovery (spring back) can result in forces, which distort the erected carton or cause stresses to be applied to closures, which reduce their effectiveness. Crease recovery is determined by the decrease in the resistance offered by the creased board after it is folded 90° at the crease measuring the recovery force after 15 secs. Board Stiffness is determined by bending a 50mm length of the board through a 15° angle.

The CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester determines Static and Kinetic Friction of packaging materials to ASTM, BS, ISO and TAPPI standards.

Accuracy and versatility in testing is vital, and the CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester provides the technology and range of options to deliver for your specific needs. An intelligent controller and touchscreen user interface stores multiple settings for later recall and controls settings to ensure calibrated accuracy to international testing standards.

The successful processing of flexible films or paper and board is largely dependent on the correct coating of ‘SLIP’ additives applied to the material. The successful forming of the material requires easy sliding or flow over formers on the packaging machine where at high-speed acute angles can change the direction of flow to produce a tube or pouch. The application of ink on the film will cause the properties of slip to change, therefore the need to measure and control Coefficient of Friction is paramount.

CF800-XS Precision Friction Tester

 

With features like:

  • 5.7″ touchscreen controller for precise control and measurement of force, distance, and speed
  • Memory recipe function for a quick and accurate recall of settings
  • Vacuum suction across the test bed for fast clamping of test material
  • Optional heated test bed for determination of ‘Hot Slip’ values.

The ATOM Swing Arm Clicker Presses are used for a wide variety of die cutting applications. The most common uses are cutting soft to semi-rigid materials such as gaskets, leather, cork, rubber, elastic, foam, and other like materials. All of ATOM’s presses are completely hydraulic and are made of strong casting material to ensure powerful yet quiet running. ATOM’s casting also ensures maximum beam strength and performance. All moving parts are made of hardened steel and are self-lubricating. There are many models available ranging from 8-25 tons witClicker Pressesh bed sizes up to 20″x40″ and cutting heads up to 24″ in width.

The ATOM Clicker Press is the ideal solution for die cutting sheets of material with small cutting dies. To guarantee maximum visibility of the material, the swing beam can be easily moved left-right by the operator in order to collect the die cut pieces and re-position the tool for the next cut. The ATOM Clicker Presses are quite simple to operate; simply place the sheet of material onto the cutting pad attached to the base of press, position the tool, cycle the two-hand push-button controls (3/10 second delay for optimal safety) and the beam descends under hydraulic pressure, cuts the shape, and returns to the desired height setting.

MOCON’s RACK-6™ increases throughput for testing the oxygen transmission rate through rigid packaging when used in conjunction with OX-TRAN® 2/61. It is designed to allow for rapid testing of rigid packages containing oxygen barrier and scavenger material.  The RACK-6™ measures oxygen transmission rates

The GlobalVision Text Inspection software compares two unlike documents to manage the accuracy of text along the artwork, document, and packaging creation workflow. It’s perfect for making sure there aren’t any unintended changes as your text moves from your copy document to artwork to print.

How it works:

  1. The Text Inspection software simultaneously reads and compares the text of two separate documents.
  2. This software is based on reading and comparing the Unicode value of each character, a text code that is common to all computer systems.
  3. If the Unicode characters are different, the differences are highlighted in a report.

With features like:

  • Ensure copy integrity
  • Inspect text in foreign languagesText Inspection
  • Compare different file formats
  • Find every difference type

The GreenLight® 910 unit significantly reduces the testing time and labour needed to determine aerobic bacterial counts in meat, poultry, seafood, dairy, produce, etc. Processors and packers get same-day, precise results in a cost-effective manner.

“The GreenLight technology will be appealing to most quality control and laboratory professionals because it simplifies, and therefore cuts time out of, the sample prep phase. Depending on the expected bacterial load, results can be obtained between minutes and eight hours. This is significantly faster than the agar or film plate methods, which typically require 48 hours to achieve a meaningful microbial count. Shorter testing cycles provide packers and processors with the potential of getting their perishable food items to the consumer in less time,” said

Mark Theno, food safety product manager,” MOCON.

Additionally, the cost-effective unit has a small bench-top footprint and an easy-to-use PC software interface with multiple measurement modes. It also has the ability to generate a unique ID for each test making it easy to track specific vials in a busy work environment.

With features like:

  • Used to test the growth and enumeration of microbial samples
  • Single well reader for use with APCheck™ vials 2 mL or 15 mL with an optional adapter
  • Internal incubation of samples
  • Included Windows® softwareGreenLight® 910
  • No moving parts
