Pharmaceutical sachet burst strength
Customised engineering example
Plastic sachets with welded seams are frequently used for measured applications of liquids, creams and gels. A quick quality test for their integrity involves compression either to burst, or to resist a defined compressive force. This may require containment for spillage, but also for alignment. Our client was testing pharmaceutical sachets. Mecmesin designed a sliding container, engaging under the test compression plate with ball catches for exact axial placement. This enabled quick exchange of test samples for maximum throughput and repeatability.
