The ability to predict and verify the performance of a container, well in advance of mold creation, is invaluable. The AGR Proof of Design service helps our customers streamline project schedules and delivers confident product launches. We are pleased to announce an upgrade to this trusted service with the introduction of our enhanced Proof of Design report format. The enhanced format provides key testing data and conclusions at a glance. With contemporary, tailored figures and tables which allow our customers to quickly make data-driven decisions.
Of course, we still include the key value-add benefit that differentiates us from other testing. We don’t just report the data. Leveraging our fracture analysis expertise we analyze low strength failures and indicate the cause and the corrections necessary to achieve acceptable quality and performance.
The Proof of Design services provides customers with assurances that their production quality and container design are world-class. “Ultimately, the goal for glass packaging is to prevent breakage and enable our customers to fill with confidence”, said Dr. Wenke Hu, AGR Senior Scientist. “Whether it is a lightweighting project, new product development or a desire to increase filling line speeds, a sound bottle design with high quality glass production is imperative for success. We feel our service gives our customers the best chance to achieve those goals”, said Hu.
AGR developed and began offering the enhanced report in Q1 of this year. To date, customer response to the clear and comprehensive tables and supporting color coded graphics has been overwhelmingly positive. The new format simply communicates the key points more efficiently.
