Challenge:

A new container design needs to be tested for production performance on existing line conditions.

Even minor tweaks to container design can affect the performance of a high-speed line. Testing newly designed containers takes time and without factual data, trial runs can be extremely inefficient, especially if issues with the new design arise. 

 

Designers and engineers at a leading coffee brand needed to better understand how pressure and existing line conditions would interact with their new design. 

Solution:

PressureQC™ used to test design prototypes and validate final container design.

The team at a leading global coffee brand made the decision to deploy PressureQC to test a new container design against their existing lines conditions. Accurate design testing with real-time, factual data pinpointed trouble spots as well as areas of escalating issues, leading to informed decisions.

 

By using a data-driven design and testing process, the team was able to deliver a new container design that could be processed through existing lines. Furthermore, they were able to iterate faster by quickly testing prototypes and variables, reducing time to isolate areas of investment and opportunity.

 

In research and development processes, smart sensors offer accurate design testing and add design cycle agility. 

Actionable data from PressureQC™ shortened the design cycle time and led to a successful new container design roll-out.
