Increase in Enquiries to Test Formulations using Bespoke Tooling
Merlin has been receiving more enquiries than ever to perform formulation characterisation using commercial shaped tooling.
For most material testing during development, flat-faced tooling is used to understand the fundamental characteristics of the formulation. Towards the end of development, it's essential to assess the product using the final commercial shape. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it was sometimes difficult for our clients to access their full-scale manufacturing presses in production, and we carried out testing to answer burning questions and reduce the risk of delays when they were finally able to manufacture the full scale batches.
