Food and Packaging Industry


Did you know that approximately one third of all food packaging is leaking?* The most common causes of these leaks are in the sealing seam or in the packaging material itself. Innovative solutions are needed to detect even the smallest leaks rapidly and reliably.

Leaky food packaging results in contents that don’t reach the calculated shelf life or prematurely spoil. This leads to additional costs for returned goods, dissatisfied customers, and damage to reputations of food producers and the manufacturers of packing machines.
