The new “ProTest” solution allows users to create the best seal each time, combining effective protection of the contents with the right level of “peelability”. The compact “ProTest” unit is an automated lid-peeling device that measures and reports the resistance offered by the film as it separates from the tray during the moment of lid peeling. This provides the user with the relevant data to determine if the seal strength is the most user-friendly while remaining suitable for the product’s life-cycle. “ProTest” is capable of retaining, displaying and outputting test data, allowing the user to export the information. Up to five test results can be compared at any one time. The unit is flexible enough to handle the vast majority of trays currently used in the market with diagonal diameters from 25 up to 380 mm in any shape. Moreover reports are generated on the machine’s 12” high-definition touchscreen and can be exported via Ethernet or USB device.
