Flexible packaging films provide a versatile and adaptable solution for various industries, addressing the increasing demand for sustainable and efficient packaging options. Testing these films is an important part of quality control. Thus, testing the flexible packaging films against different quality factors will help the manufacturers in determining product quality. We at Testronix Testing Instruments have designed high-quality laboratory testing equipment known as flexible film testing equipment.

Our quality lab testing equipment has been designed to test each and every aspect of these flexible packaging films and ensure that quality products will be delivered to the customers. In this blog, we will discuss a brief about top flexible packaging films testing instruments and why it is important to test the flexible packaging films before delivering to the customers.

Importance of testing flexible packaging films efficiently

As we have discussed above flexible packaging films play an important role in delivering products accurately to the customers. Various factors like tears and punctures, ink abrasion that leads to fading and discolouration of the material needed to be overlooked to ensure that these packaging films will not fail while shipping and transporting products accurately to the customers.

Thus, to overcome this issue, we at Testronix have manufactured high-quality flexible film testing equipment that will make it easy for the manufacturers to conduct a quality test on the materials.

Our flexible film testing equipment proves to be exceptionally useful in assessing the quality of various types of flexible films. With our advanced technology and precise measurements, our equipment ensures accurate evaluation of key parameters such as tensile strength, elongation, tear resistance, haze level, coefficient of friction, and opacity.

Below we have listed our top flexible film packaging testing instruments that work well to test the quality of materials.

Top flexible film testing instruments that every manufacturer must have

Flexible packaging films are thin, plastic sheets that are used to pack food, medical, and other products. This type of packaging will make it easy for the manufacturers to transport and store the material. They are also less likely to break or tear than other types of packaging, making them ideal for fragile items. Flexible packaging films can also be printed on, which allows for custom branding and designs.

When these films are being produced, manufacturers want to ensure that they meet all of the required specifications for use. This means that they need to be tested for things like thickness, width, length, and other properties.

Below we have listed the top flexible films testing equipment:

  • Humidity Chamber DigitalThe humidity chamber digital model is one of the widely used lab testing equipment that will help to test whether the material will be able to sustain high temperatures or not. Once a sample is placed inside the chamber the reaction and changes in the sample properties are observed before and after the test. Accordingly, the manufacturers improve the quality of the sample depending on the test results.

  • Peel Strength / Seal Strength Tester DigitalThis is one of the best lab testing equipment that will help to test the peel/seal and bond strength of packaging materials. It is easy to operate and can provide highly accurate lab testing results for testing the peel strength of the material.

  • Ink abrasion resistance testerThe ink abrasion rub tester is one of the most highly used instruments in the packaging industry. it has an immense application and is used to calculate the resistance against scuffing and rubbing. This instrument can be efficiently used to test the quality of labels and packaging materials.

These are the top flexible film testing instruments that you must use. You can also read more on the need of testing flexible film packaging materials.
