Torus Measurement Systems have recently released the latest gauge in their line of measurement systems for plastic containers. Torus have now integrated those latest measurement modules into one single system – The TQ-LAB. This development is claimed to offer customers multiple quality control tests which can be selected by module to suit each customer requirement. Offering non-contact and destructive tests on both empty and filled containers or preforms, this flexible and portable machine is intended to deliver reliable data to the network with no operator influence. This development offers users multi-module gauging all controlled by one interface, thus simplifying the quality control process.

September 12, 2018 | Gas barrier simulator

Norway-based company Norner launched an upgraded version of their gas barrier simulators with new functionality to calculate CO2 transmissions and gas transmission at dynamic conditions for O2, H2O and CO2. A web-based calculator for barrier properties was developed by a team of Norner experts and is a tool for making simulations in the packaging design phase. By using this calculator, the developer can investigate changes in design and layer structures without expensive testing in a screening phase. It will also be possible to reduce instrumented testing of permeability and actual testing of shelf life in the development phase.
