Product Portfolio

Bonfiglioli Engineering offers a wide production range of laboratories as well as in-line machines with the aim of verifying, based on four complementary technologies: Container Closure Integrity Testing, Visual Inspection, Leak Testing and Headspace Gas Analysis:

  • Presence of leaks
  • Headspace gas content
  • Existence of visible foreign materials.

Testing is quick, reliable and repeatable and gives consistent results for a comprehensive batch control, always without altering the container features.
