The customer today demands more comfort and flexibility in all type of services. They also set higher expectations and demand from product packaging. Right now the trend is of small and flexible packaging such as pouches. They are economical, take less space, and are portable and lightweight. However, there is more aspect of pouches which are to be noted and must be assured for leading the competition. In this post, we are talking about the leak integrity of small pouches and testing the same using vacuum leak tester.
Due to various reasons, the pouch material can tend to leak the content inside such as on experiencing load, pressure differences, and poor quality packaging material or any damage during the production or packaging process. Sometimes these leak holes are so small that they are not at all noticeable by human eyes. Therefore, manufacturers must put the product under vacuum leak test using the highly precise testing equipment.
Presto brings Vacuum leak tester – Digital Model. The machine is specially designed keeping mind the need of small pouch or packet manufacturers.
