Some things are easier when they are local. Whether it’s sharing an experience, having a coffee together or working on a new packaging project, being local can make a difference.
At Oliver, we want to make designing the right packaging easier for you. With many of our raw materials sourced in Europe, we are transporting materials over shorter distances, which saves time and reduces our CO2 footprint, benefitting you and the environment. Additionally, our technical team can work directly with you to develop the packaging solution that's right for your needs.
Our team recently sat down with Med-Tech Innovation to discuss our new locally sourced, sustainable packaging materials.
In our Technical Centre we have a hands-on, collaborative environment where customers can work directly with our sterile barrier team to design, test and troubleshoot packaging.
The centre offers a variety of capabilities, including:
HDPE CleanCut Card design and rapid prototyping to increase your speed to market
Package integrity testing, including bubble leak testing and dye penetration
Package seal strength testing, including peel testing and burst testing
Material testing, including puncture, tensile, grammage / yield testing, Gelbo flex, and coefficient of friction (COF)
Material analysis, including microscopic analysis and package failure evaluation
Troubleshooting for packaging challenges and process related issues
Technical and design consultation
