MMAAZZ Technology, Canada, released advanced sensor technology poised to transform how the packaging industry detects and prevents damage in the production process.

ShockQC, PressureQC and VerticalQC are acrylic replicas of packaging containers placed in client's production lines to generate real-time sensor data. These sensors measure variables in the production process such as shock and pressure, which cause product damage and costly downtime.

In addition to an enhanced sampling rate and Bluetooth beacons to  wireless track the system location as it runs through a manufacturing  line, the new sensors are also equipped with direct calculation of IPS (inches per second) velocity measurement as well as Scuff Index, a revolutionary new indicator for the packaging industry.

A new client portal and a tablet interface accompany the new technology with additional reporting capabilities and an improved user experience.
