Dublin, May 03, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Package Testing market - By Primary Material, Type, Regions - Market Size, Demand Forecasts, Industry Trends and Updates (2016-2022)" report to their offering. The Global Package Testing market is estimated to grow from $15.81 billion in 2016 to $31.44 billion by the end of 2022 at a CAGR of 12.14% for the forecasted period The packaging industry is constantly evolving with packaging becoming more than just a protective outer layer. Packaging serves as the primary face of the product and is very important in the promotion of the brand and attracting customers. Packaging is also being altered to suit the needs of the fast food consumer who are rapidly replacing traditional meals with packaged foodstuff. This has increased the need for testing the packaging of products to ensure higher shelf life and the reduction of costs normally associated with damaged goods. Packaging plays a significant part in the assurance of the quality and integrity of the product inside. It not only affects the product but also manifests itself in the end product in which the product is used. Governments across the world are implementing rigorous guidelines to ensure quality of the products. Testing is an integral part of these guidelines which makes it one of the core drivers in this market. The market is expected to register considerable growth in the APAC, Latin America and European regions. The market for package testing is still in growth stage. Consumers are now more informed than before. They are now demanding products which have better shelf life, meet regulations and norms set by different government agencies and have been procured ethically. Packaging and labelling helps increase in consumer's confidence in the product and increases the brand value of the company A business is no more entirely dependent on a country or a region. Deals are being signed across the continents and products are being sold in different regions. For such products to be transported and meet the requirements for sales, it is necessary that packaging is robust and follows certain parameters set by different agencies. Package Testing companies test packaging products by doing several tests on products like drop test, shock test, vibration test, shelf life testing to name a few. Only when a package passes through these tests, it is allowed to be shipped or used for commercial use. Products are being sourced and shipped worldwide to meet the global consumer demand. This has increased the need for durable packaging but at the same time, the push for more sustainable packaging is stronger than ever with emphasis on reducing the material used to ensure lighter cargo and decrease the ecological footprint. This has made package testing even more important as damaged or over-packaged products result in customer dissatisfaction and increased costs for retailers and manufacturers. Plastic is the most widely used packaging material with more than half of the current market share followed by paper. Metal and Glass are also widely used and tests are designed to check the packages durability, integrity, strength, shelf life and resistance to environmental factors. The integrity of a package is tested by performing various tests on it, drop, vibration and shock tests are the major ones which are mandated by the standards institutions like ASTM and ISTA. These standards are universally followed and are quite stringent in nature. Some of the major companies in package testing are DDL, Intertek, SGS, CSZ Testing Services Laboratories, CRYOPAK, Advance Packaging, Nefab, National Technical Systems, Turner Packaging and Caskadetek.

The present proposal contributes to improved eco efficiency in the global value chain in the electronics and automotive industries. The starting point is the rising demand for better eco-efficient products and services, provoked by public opinion, and being incorporated into legislation world wide. One leader of this movement is the European Union, but other major economic regions around the world are joining up (e.g. US regarding GHG Emissions ). Customer driven requirements and company strategic aims (eg. reduction of C02 emission) go beyond the law and are becoming integral to company policies. For global the electronic and automotive industries, eco efficient products within an efficient sustainability strategy combine to be a decisive point, ruling future developments on the market. Large OEM companies have internalized this global trend and passed the requirements on to their suppliers. Due to these complicated and dynamic requirements, suppliers are frequently overwhelmed. The lack of data and insufficient integration into operational internal processes lead to the rejection of these requirements. Therefore, until, now management of sustainability strategies across the supply chain has not been solved. SustainHub will provide a systematic and efficient approach to collect sustainability data for products and manufacturing processes through the supply chain and integrate these into the internal systems and processes of the companies. Target industries are electronic and automotive production sector. These are both essential pillars of the European economy, representing in the EU27, no less than 6 million employees and a 347 billion combined production value. Therefore, a better management of supply chain data and sustainability data will improve the eco efficiency performance of product design and production, but also preserve the European competitive position.

Confocal Raman microscopy is a powerful tool for research and analysis in the chemical, materials and life sciences, particularly for non-destructive depth profiling of transparent systems. Unfortunately, many Raman microscopes are not optimally configured for this purpose, and so yield unnecessarily low signal-to-noise spectra with poor spatial resolution and grossly incorrect depth scales. This review discusses the aberrations and artefacts that can arise and describes how these can be avoided by adhering to a few basic principles that are well known to optical microscopists but which were largely ignored in the spectroscopic community for many years. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2010.

An apparatus and method for assessing a hazard associated with an object are disclosed. The apparatus includes a haptic input/output device coupled to a computer with haptic modeling software and a display device. A virtual object and a virtual passageway are displayed on the display device. The virtual passageway includes a haptic layer along a surface thereof. Force applied by a user to the haptic input/output device causes a cursor on the display device to move the virtual object into the virtual passageway. An interaction of the virtual object with the haptic layer generates a virtual contact force which may be determined by the user sensing a corresponding tactile feedback force generated by the haptic input/output device and/or by the computer processor. The magnitude of the virtual contact force may be used to assess a hazard associated with the virtual object.

The invention relates to a method for analysing a blend of two or more hydrocarbon feed streams such as crude oils. These crude oils are blended in a facility such as a refinery. The method assesses the compatibility of a hydrocarbon feed in a blend to calculate the blend stability such that organic deposition is minimised. The method uses all of a plurality of hydrocarbon feeds to be blended for analysis. The method either selects a neat hydrocarbon feed, from a plurality of the hydrocarbon feeds included in a blend, as a titrant, wherein the or each other hydrocarbon in the hydrocarbon feed are used to make a pseudo-blend and titrating the pseudo-blend with said selected neat hydrocarbon feed for a plurality of different blend ratios. Alternatively the method involves preparing a reference hydrocarbon and making a blend from the plurality of hydrocarbon feeds and titrating the blend with the reference hydrocarbon. Measurements associated with the change in characteristics of the titrated blend are made and data recorded. The method then calculates, using said data, the stability of the blend.

A locking retractor is disclosed, as are stretchers and cots using the retractor to secure a patient. The retractor includes structure for locking the retractor spool to prevent rotation in both directions. However, a cam is coupled to the shaft and is arranged relative to the locking structure to prevent the spool from locking during an initial portion of the spools rotation, until a first locking point is reached. Once the first locking point has been reached, a clutch prevents the locking structure from engaging while the spool is still rotating, but the locking structure will engage to lock the spool in both directions once active rotation stops. A user-actuatable lever is provided externally that disengages the locking structure when actuated to allow the spool to extend and retract freely.
