IDM Instruments have recently manufactured the Light Transmission Tester for a local manufacturer, to evaluate the light transmission properties of various shaped plastic containers.
IDM Instruments were approached by the client and asked for a product that could consistently measure the light transmission value of a variety of odd shaped small plastic containers. IDM engineers were able to implement a concept that fulfilled the clients’ requirements.
Plastic container manufacturers’ print onto the finished goods, however, slight variations in the mix of raw materials often leads to dramatic differences in the look of the product on the shelf, leading to credit demands from the final customer.
The Light Transmission Tester eliminates the process for technicians on the production line to visually inspect items and adjust the mixture accordingly. It provides a digital readout allowing one to quantify samples based on customers’ in-house pass/fail criteria, and obtain consistent results while minimising inputs.
