Suppliers in this category make package integrity testing equipment used for quality and safety applications (metal detectors, fill level inspectors) as well as other equipment to analyze materials, test product attributes and log data.
Inspection & Testing Equipment
Package & Material Testing Equipment
Any equipment or device that tests the quality, integrity and performance of a packaging container or material.
- Coatings & Thickness Testing
Any specialized testing and analytical equipment or device used to measure micro-level material thickness and coatings on packaging or substrates.
- Packaging Material Testing
A broad range of equipment that focuses on analyzing packaging material substrates, especially paper and film, for attributes such as color, opacity, material strength, heat-seal quality and performance.
Package Inspection Equipment
A wide range of equipment to measure packages, detect anomalies in package integrity as part of a quality control or safety process, or otherwise test machinery on a packaging line.
- Cap Torque Testing
Inspection equipment used on bottling lines to test the torque of a screw cap to define machine tolerances so the capping equipment can be properly calibrated to avoid destruction of bottles during the operation.
Machines that weigh the amount of a package to verify its weight is within designated limits, such as a checkweigher for cases.
- Fill Level Inspection
Quality control systems that use cameras and other devices to detect uniform fill level.
- Metal Detectors
Machines that inspect packaging for metallic foreign matter.
- Package Integrity Testing
A wide range of equipment and systems used to test packaging integrity properties including test compression, seal integrity, and leaks.
- Thermal Scanners
Infrared and other thermal scanners that measure heat emitted from an area of a package, often used to detect seal integrity of heat-sealed packages and containers.
- Vision Inspection Systems
Also known as machine vision (MV), vision inspection systems use cameras and other imaging technologies to detect defects.
- X-Ray Systems
Machines that emit x-rays in a variety of applications to detect the presence of a foreign substance or object.
Companies that sell equipment or consumables related to quality assurance (QA) and packaging integrity testing.
- Lab Equipment
Highly specialized non industrial lab equipment used by quality assurance (QA) labs for testing of seal integrity, coatings, air and gas presence, temperature, permeation, and other packaging or product attributes.
- Lab Services
Third-party labs that offer testing and quality assurance to consumer packaged goods companies and other packagers.
