Packaging that you can't tear open is not just an annoying nuisance but can be a real problem - according to Which magazine "..four in ten people say they have hurt themselves while trying to open packaging in the last two years."  But packaging that tears too easily can lead to problems including spilled or spoiled products that shortene shelf life. 

The solution to the problem is Versaperm's latest computer controlled, automated, off-line SIV non-destructive seal and burst strength tester.

And as an optional bonus the system can simulate what happens to the pack when it is transported at the low pressures and high altitudes that arise when products are shipped by air.

Poor sealing can substantially shorten the active shelf-life and quality of products such as foods and medicines, but the Versaperm system allows you to balance the competing demands of good seals and easy opening.

Results can link straight into a QC system and produce statistical analyses that allow the manufacturer to spot trends early and prevent them from becoming problems.

The equipment is fully compliant with CE and ISO 9001 Standards and helps manufacturers to eliminate both wrap rage and its opposite - burst and spoiled packaging.  The system can test the seal strength of a bag even when it is inside a box!

All that needs to be done is for the operator to select an item's code and then close the chamber door. The rest is automatic and a signal indicates a pass or fail for each test. The SIV additionally offers a "Seal Burst" test mode that ensures a package can meet a minimum force without failing.

Wrap Rage Is a very common problem, Versaperm has a very simple solution!
