From development to marketability: all services from a single source

Are you looking for tailor-made, precise packaging solutions that can be integrated smoothly into your production processes? Look no further, at Körber we provide one-stop packaging service for your pharmaceutical products.

Along with their know-how and many years of experience in the industry, our Körber packaging experts provide you with a Packaging Qualification Service that enables you to revise secondary packaging for optimum product protection of the packaging materials already during their development through qualified pre-tests.

In addition to the development of pharmaceutically compliant secondary packaging, we offer validated pretests that comply with applicable standards and guidelines.

lWith the help of our Packaging Qualification Service, we quickly and efficiently support our customers in the development, implementation and qualification of new packaging solutions - everything from one source.r

Packaging Qualification Service

To shorten your time-to-market process, we at Körber subject folding cartons to numerous tests as early as the qualification phase. Regardless of whether the folding box was developed by us or externally. These tests are carried out in accordance with the applicable ASTM, DIN or ISO standards. The involvement of a third-party test laboratory is not required.

Drop test

The drop test simulates the free fall of a package onto corners, edges and surfaces from a defined height according to DIN 22248, DIN ISO 2248, DIN EN 22206, DIN EN 24180 and ASTM 7386. It demonstrates the intactness of the package and proves that the product is not damaged. As a customer, this provides you with valuable information that we at Körber can use to protect the packaged product.

Climate simulation

This method is used to test packaging for its behavior under specific ambient conditions (temperature and humidity).

In the climate cabinet, the packaging can be exposed to temperatures from -75 °C to 180 °C and relative humidity from 10 % up to 98 %.

Packaging can thus also be tested under and for extreme conditions, such as for the transport and storage of Covid 19 vaccines at sub-zero temperatures or in tropical regions.

Or would you like to know how your product changes during its life cycle? Using accelerated ageing, for example, we can simulate within five months what the product will look like after three years of ageing.

Tensile and pressure test

Among other things, adhesive joints and the perforation of packaging can be checked 
with the use of a Zwick testing machine.

Abrasion test

This procedure controls the resistance of carton surfaces to mechanical stress and liquids.

The so-called Sutherland-Rub-Test follows the guidelines ASTM D5264 / TAPPI T83.

Erecting force

The erecting force measures the maximum force required to erect a flat, pre-glued folding box along its creasing lines.

Creasing resistance

The maximum force required to fold or flip a flap (surface) by 90°.is defined by the Score Bend Test.

Friction coefficient

The calculated coefficient of friction (COF) provides information about the resistance between the individual carton blanks when they are fed into the packaging machine.

Your benefits

One stop shopping

Integration of pretests into the development process of the Pharma folding carton

Faster time-to-market process

Time-consuming search for available external testing laboratories is eliminated
