Essentials of Consumer Packaging Testing

Mecmesin - On-demand event

Maximize COST SAVINGS for your consumer packaging by minimizing excess material and “over design” while keeping your products protected in transit.

Packaging testing will help reduce packaging costs by identifying proper protection levels and eliminating unnecessary or excessive packaging materials.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss the benefits of testing, when to test and what can be tested. We’ll then look to real-world packaging applications, such as: top load, opening torque, peel and tear, wear and scratch, box crush, pump actuation, etc. Finally, we will review the types and advantages of the testing equipment that is used in consumer packaging testing.
