State-of-the-art facilities to help our customers sell more
We have all the facilities to test and evaluate every part of the packaging lifecycle. From a small to large scale these include:
Mechanical and physical characteristics which influence the papers’ behaviour in the board and in our, and our customers, production
Typical board characteristics, including Three Point Bending (TPB) Edge crush (ECT), Flat crush (FCT).
A range of tests including industry standards like Box Compression and Drop testing. We have also developed our own unique test methods for characteristics like handhold strength, tray torsion and tray tilting.
Evaluation of the performance at full-size pallet scale including storage simulation, warehouse handling (incline plane test) and transport simulation (vibration table).
A large part of our laboratory is climatised at the industry standard of 23 degrees and 50% relative humidity, ensuring consistent and comparable results regardless of outside influences.
We also have a large climate-room in which we can test in extreme conditions ranging from a freezing arctic to a tropical climate.
Our fully functional retail ready room is designed to simulate a live retailer environment, allowing prototype designs to be placed on the shelf. This creates a full understanding of potential solutions and allows us to assess their shelf presence, next to competitors, before they enter the marketplace.
We have our own design capabilities and can manufacture both plain and printed samples in-house.
Our inspiration room is equipped with an interactive screen and variable environments and lighting, allowing us to create the best atmosphere for creative sessions and customer meetings.
Here we host customer courses and larger meetings.
