August AIP technical dinner to feature Nestlé and Amcor speakers


Speakers from Nestlé Australia and Amcor Australasia will be the feature of the Australian Institute of Packaging’s (AIP’s) next technical dinner on 1 August at the Box Hill Golf Club.

Paul Haberland FAIP, a Packaging Specialist at Nestlé Australia, will present a paper entitled ‘Ensuring the Safety of Food Packaging’, which discusses how the process of determining new packaging has been one of ensuring the packaging’s functionality, cost and environmental compliance.

Haberland says major food manufacturers have developed systems of ensuring packaging compliance that hinges on packaging manufacturers divulging some key ingredients. However, Haberland says, this does not always occur. His presentation will cover some of Nestlé’s experiences with packaging compliance.

The evening’s second speaker is Jim Selway, Senior Technical Support Manager with Amcor Australasia. He will present on ‘Transport Simulations for Australian Roads’, exploring development of road transport tests that simulate Australian road conditions and the use of accelerated transport simulations in optimising packaging performance and cost. He will compare vibration intensities of Australian roads with those in other parts of the world.

According to Selway, the vibration/shock spectrum that occurs during transportation in vehicles is complex and plays a significant role in the level of product damage during shipping. Selway will present an overview of ASTM, ISTA and ISO vibration test methods as well as several case studies.
