For packaging professionals, strength in packaging equals quality seals, quality product, and quality solutions. But what about for consumers? Do consumers appreciate tightly sealed caps?
As Americans age and the baby boomer population reaches retirement, more and more consumers will be attempting to open tightly sealed caps with increasing difficulty as fingers, knuckles and wrists ache from arthritis. Packagers need to consider the specialized needs of this group moving forward as they will continue to represent a growing portion of the US market.
One of the best ways to overcome this issue is to take steps to ensure that your manufacturing process is applying caps at a consistent torque throughout the manufacturing process. This is nearly impossible to do with inconsistent hand torque testers as human operators will naturally apply different pressure.
Torqo from Mesa Labs is a computerized cap torque tester that applies the exact same torque test after test, giving packagers the most accurate results possible. To see how Torqo can accomplish this with a quick return on investment due to its non-destructive testing, view our Torqo video here.
