The field of flexible packaging continues to evolve with new and unique packaging designs. With the shift into new materials and formats, the means for assuring package quality and integrity introduce unique challenges. Creative application of new technology allows for more effective inspection of seal quality and the detection of microleaks.

The webinar will cover technologies deployed for on-line seal inspection of pouch seals as well as off-line microleak detection. Practical case studies of implementation of each technology will be presented with key factors of success for deploying each solution. The path to assuring seal quality and package integrity requires multiple strategies to achieve the necessary results.

The webinar will cover:

  • Principles behind flexible package integrity.
  • Questions to ask of you package and process.
  • Strategizing around practicality and requirements.
  • Two ISO recognized test methods to assure quality.
  • Cases for effective implementation.
