The Agr PPT3000 Packaging Pressure tester will enable SMI to qualify bottles created in their design center and ensure that they meet pressure strength and volume expansion design goals.
SMI provides equipment and expertise to companies to blow, fill and package PET containers.
SMI designs and manufactures a wide range of bottling systems and packaging machines for the industries of food, beverage, household cleaning, personal hygiene, chemical and pharmaceutical products.
Erika Luiselli, SMI technical production department manager, said: “We are using the PPT3000 in a number of ways; to validate bottles produced in prototype molds to ensure they meet SMI Quality Specifications and to test our blow molding machines during final checkout in order to certify and guarantee that the bottles produced with these systems conform with what was prototyped by our customer at the initial stage of their project. Following qualification, results from the PPT3000 tests are submitted to the customer as part of final acceptance process.”
