Packaging

-Practically every product manufactured from virtually every industry is placed into some type of package at some point during its product lifecycle. From basic cardboard boxes to the latest type of plastic used in a flexible packaging application, knowing and understanding how tension and compression forces affect the package itself, or the contents inside is critical. Many types of materials are tested in various ways as they relate to packaging, such as paper, films, foams, textiles, plastics, and composite materials. United offers our customers may different test solutions. In addition to Universal Test Machines, United also offers custom designed grips and fixtures to secure a package for testing. These include COF sleds, peel jigs, puncture resistance jigs, and many other fixtures related to package testing applications. Listed below are various types of test procedures and product categories that you can test on a universal test machine from United.
