Top 4 Opportunities of Today

There is no such thing as traditional packaging. The industry is constantly changing and evolving as new technology emerges and customers’ needs shift. At AMETEK MOCON, we’ve seen trends emerge and fade over the course of six decades. The best way to predict the future is to identify the biggest opportunities of today.

To do this, we work closely with industry leaders to focus on the following:


One of the biggest opportunities in today’s packaging landscape is creating more sustainable packaging. However, companies are still trying to figure out how to help the environment and meet consumer demands for sustainable packaging while meeting stringent shelf life requirements. Consumers are driving this push, and AMETEK MOCON is at the forefront of research and development in this area to help our customers reach these innovative solutions. We’ve been fortunate to work with industry leaders who trust us to help them make the right choices in sustainable materials while safeguarding product integrity. Our instruments and expertise are continuing to help them successfully test greener methods of packaging while keeping products free of contamination, reducing waste and meeting package requirements.

Quality Assurance

As Warren Buffet said, “It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it.” Consumers can be unforgiving if they purchase a product that is not fresh. Your packaging choice is the most important factor in protecting goods from damage and keeping the product fresh. Testing through your QA/QC process helps ensure that your packaging is up to standard and that your products are appropriately protected. Our customers depend on our instruments to confirm that their products adhere to required specifications and meet shelf life requirements, from distribution to the final customer. We are invested in providing our customers with the right quality assurance tools, so R&D labs are able to choose the right barrier films and online production ensures correct gas composition and package integrity.


Our customers stay at the cutting edge of industry innovation--and expect us to do the same. For instance, we recently launched an array of analyzers that are precisely designed for package integrity testing. Our Lippke 5000 offers reliable seal strength and pressure leak testing of packages, and is ideal for food, pharma and medical applications.
The Lippke 5000 offers a variety of ways to test your products including burst, leak, bubble, and combined test options. Also, part of the leak detector family of products, the
Lippke VC1400, is optimal for testing flexible, rigid and semi-rigid packages and complies with ASTM D3078. Additionally, to make collecting all your data even easier, the VC1400 allows you to capture, store, and export your data all via a USB.

Global Support

Global corporations require global support. We have a commitment to customer service we don’t take lightly, and our support helps our customers keep their businesses on track. Our engineers, scientists and service providers have centuries of combined expertise, and with distribution and service centers across the globe, we give our customers full access to this knowledge and support, no matter where they are in the world. This holistic, global customer support approach allows us to answer questions and fulfill service requests not from thousands of miles away, but right from our customers’ localities.

Throughout more than a half-century, AMETEK MOCON’s products have defined the gas permeation analyzer and package testing industry. Moreover, our customers have learned they always have a trusted partner who is nearby and eager to assist. Designing and manufacturing precision instruments, serving our customers in their locales and providing industry-leading expertise is who we are, and we will continue to push the limits of innovation towards a cleaner, more sustainable future as the industry’s one-stop-shop solution. Our customers have the confidence to tackle what is ahead since they know they have a loyal partner in AMETEK MOCON.
