The DuraLabel On-Site Test Lab
The DuraLabel Test Lab provides continuous testing of existing products to ensure you always get high quality printers and supplies. Our test lab also aids in the development and testing of new products.
We do our own testing. We can randomly test supplies. We can check new suppliers. We are not dependent on our suppliers to tell us they are sending us quality materials, we can check it ourselves.
For example, our Atlas Weathering Tester subjects samples to accelerated weathering conditions that include light, UV, moisture and rain.
By regularly testing existing products we verify the quality of our raw materials and our manufacturing processes. This means you can be confident you'll always be getting superior quality supplies and equipment.
Taber Abrasion Tester
This machine is used to conduct test of abrasion resistance. A circular sample is placed on the disk on the upper part of the tester. It is rotated and subjected to a precision controlled amount of abrasion, then the readability of the printing is tested.
Unlike other manufacturers, who visually read the label, we use a computer-based scanner system to accurately measure the readability of the label. This ensures consistency and accuracy.
Labels and signs are tested for resistance to a minimum of twelve types of chemicals.
To pass our tests the label must survive exposure to twelve chemicals. Labels are placed in chemical baths for set periods of time. They are also subjected to a level of rubbing and scrubbing that far exceeds what happens even in the most extreme conditions.
Our goal is to ensure our labels and signs deliver more than what we promise.
More types of supplies than are available for any other printer. As a result of our extensive testing you can be assured that all DuraLabel supplies will deliver the maximum possible life — they get the job done, and get it done right.
