Application Testing

Hapa's application testing is a foundation of all projects.

Substrate, ink and printing process are tested within real production conditions, including the rotary sealing process.

This ensures the expected print quality and operational performance. 


Application Testing


The VDP enables an easy application of product- or batch-specific data and codes as well as serialization on all parts of the blister foil. This includes pocket-specific print.
