Force Testing Equipment for Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Packaging

MDC’s SurePeel is an automated force tester that can be custom tooled for a variety of force measurement applications requiring repeatable results. Our packaging force testers have been deployed for a wide range of applications including…

  • Snap-on Tests – Applying a snap on closure for bottles including glass ampules
  • Piercing Tests – measuring the force required for a syringe to puncture or pierce a rubber top
  • Peel Tests – measuring seal strength integrity for flexible barrier materials – See Tensil Tester Machines Page for more info

Please watch the following video for a recent application where the SurePeel was configured to measure the opening and removal forces of a snap-on top for a popular beverage mix.
