Vidrala Impact Index Series:  Introducing and measuring VII

VII is set to become an important measurement for glass packaging operations.

A useful measurement tool to rate a line's impact performance, VII is defined as the number of impacts, with the same magnitude of the IPS rating of the bottle, that would produce a similar breakage probability.
