Helping the Quality Department Work in Real Time

A recent upgrade to Protective Packaging’s network means we are now using one of the most secure and reliable WiFi networks available. So why not make more use of it and help the Quality Department work in Real Time.  An idea was sprung to use Tablets to input the various data collections direct into the Protective Packaging’s bespoke Database.  What Tablet do we use to achieve this ?  After trials we found that because our systems are so versatile we could actually use any, either iPad, Android, Amazon or Windows.  The only requirement was that it could connect to our Remote Desktop servers.

Once we thought more about the Tablet we decided on Fusion5, simply as it runs Windows 10 and has a USB Port. This helps if we want to connect a Keyboard and Mouse.  The Tablet is only the start, we had to create new screens that didn’t need a Keyboard or Mouse, one that we could use our Fingers to control.  The IT Department has once again pushed Protective Packaging’s Database to the limits to create the screens needed to simplify, speed up input and have our Quality data live and in Real Time.

I’ll only have snacks from a Mylar ® Bag

Mylar® bags have quickly become an extremely popular way of storing food short and long term. Their key strengths come from the protection the bags provide from light, moisture and heat ingress. They also help maintain the organoleptic properties of the foodstuff, resulting in fresher products. Popular short term items such as crisps, chocolate and other common snacks will use a Mylar® bag. With a little help from a Oxygen scavenger dried/dehydrated foods can be stored for 5-15 years. They can be made in many styles, the most popular being flat pouches and stand up pouches.  These bags although commonly used in the food industry can also be used in a wide variety of sectors thanks to the barrier foil aspects of the bag. Including Electronics, Pharmaceutical, Chemicals, Pigments and Paints, Adhesives and Resins.

Whatever the application we are sure we have a Mylar® bag to satisfy your requirements, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer services team.
