In marketing food or pharmaceuticals, packaging is just as important as the product, especially in delivering fresh and effective flavors and drugs. Sensor Products Inc. announces Pressurex, a tactile pressure-indicating sensor film that helps manufacturers in R&D, design, and quality control/quality assurance to monitor and guarantee consistent package integrity. Pressurex film allows for rapid and easy determination of compression magnitude and distribution between any two mating or contacting surfaces. It is virtually indispensable for manufacturing process control and machine/component inspection. Pressurex also aids in quality control for applications such as validation and calibration of sealing die pressure during drug packaging and helps fulfill GMP compliance by revealing weak spots, channels and wrinkles at the sealing surface
The film is also widely used to verify and record pressure distribution during equipment set-up, preventive maintenance and product changeover for various form-fill-seal, deposit-fill-seal and CAP/MAP systems. By assessing these pressures, engineers can be assured of even and perfectly aligned seals and proper registration, which ultimately results in a higher yield and longer sealing die life.
