Soluções Mecmesin para o setor de alimentos e bebidas.

Vivemos em um mundo onde a maioria dos alimentos e bebidas são fornecidos pré-embalados em embalagens que protegem, mas que foram projetadas para serem abertas com facilidade.

A enorme quantidade de embalagens de uso único e o crescimento das regulamentações ambientais criam pressão para produzi-las com o mínimo de desperdício e despesas, ao mesmo tempo em que garantem que sejam adequadas ao seu objetivo. É aí que os testes físicos das embalagens de alimentos e bebidas se tornam essenciais para garantir que a experiência do cliente seja positiva:

  • As embalagens de alimentos do consumidor precisam ser descascadas e abertas, portanto, devem ser projetadas e verificadas quanto à vedação máxima e descascamento mínimo.
  • As bolsas de retorta exigem que o consumidor supere uma perfuração pré-rasgo, enquanto suporta as forças de perfuração para proteger o conteúdo.
  • Garrafas de bebidas de plástico precisam usar uma quantidade mínima de matéria-prima e ainda assim suportar as forças aplicadas durante o enchimento e o empilhamento, para que precisem ser testadas quanto à resistência à carga máxima.
  • Torcer a abertura de um tampão ou fechamento de bebidas pode ser um desafio, especialmente para os idosos. Os testes de torque durante o ciclo de design e produção tornam-se críticos para garantir a usabilidade e para que a imagem da marca não seja prejudicada por embalagens ruins.
  • As latas de spray requerem a pressão correta dos dedos para ativar o aerossol. Os puxadores de anel devem fornecer uma vedação segura, mas não exigem força de abertura excessiva que quebre as unhas ou corte os dedos.

A lista de aplicações é quase infinita e quanto mais a embalagem se torna estética, mais difícil pode ser a aderência e o teste.

Na Mecmesin, projetamos sistemas e acessórios de medição de força e torque para testar todos os tipos de produtos de embalagem, para que você possa aplicar métodos de teste padrão do setor em projetos e no chão de produção para controle de qualidade.

Nosso software de controle e análise Emperor é poderoso e flexível para testes confiáveis, precisos e repetíveis com o pressionar de um botão.

Teste de acordo com os padrões da sua empresa, bem como com ASTM, BS EN, ISO, DIN, CEN, Afera, FEFCO, FINAT, PSTC, TAPPI e TLMI

Se você precisar de uma solução para análise de textura dos próprios alimentos, visite nossa empresa irmã Food Technology Corporation (FTC) , que tem mais de 40 anos de experiência no design e fabricação de analisadores de textura, prensas de textura e tenderômetros.

Silgan Plastics has utilised the Mecmesin tester in several of our plants over the last two years to monitor top-load. It brings a wealth of features at a very competitive price. We pride ourselves on being the forefront of container performance and capability and the 5-x top-load tester is a valued piece of our strategy.

"Mecmesin were able to offer us a texture analyser test system, which met with our testing needs. The range of probes supplied have been extremely useful, as it enables more variations of test to be performed with just the one system. This has been very useful as our product has 3 different component ingredients, which can be individually analysed using their dedicated test cells provided."

After an Internet search, I happened upon Mecmesin, a British company who were able to provide several cost-effective solutions. We finally settled on the Tornado model, which we felt would provide us with consistency and ease of use, as well as being compact and portable.

We have been using it now for a few months and are very pleased with it and the level of service provided by the helpful Mecmesin staff.

The new xt system is simple and tough enough for us to use in a production environment, while simultaneously allowing us to get the information we need. Being a complete system has made integrating it into our Quality Assurance system straight forward. The information we receive allows us to preempt issues before they can affect quality, with much less effort than previously. This means we have less waste, improved efficiencies and can spend more time making our products.
