Tests and Analysis

Vitalab Balança Semianalítica

Semi-analytical Scale

The weight analysis indicates the paperboard’s mass per area and is key for packaging systems.

Vitalab Medidor de Espessura

Thickness Gauge

In some countries, paperboard thickness is the key metric, since it affects the crease and strength of the system.

Vitalab Rigidez TABR

TABR Stiffness Tester

Measures the paperboard’s stiffness both in the fiber and counterfiber directions, ensuring the package’s structure.

Vitalab Analisador PCA

PCA Score Bend Tester

Analyzes the force required to assemble the packages and the individual resistance of the creases. This is an important test to guarantee filling quality.
