Testing is a very integral part of any manufacturing process. Final product quality is a result of both the process and materials used. The best of manufacturing processes on substandard material cannot give a satisfactory end product. It is the systematic testing and accurate recording of results for analysis which will give the manufacturer a vital tool in selecting the right raw material. Along with raw material final product testing is also of equally important to deliver quality product to end consumer

Recognizing this need of the members WICMA R&D Centre had initiated this exercise of training personnel at members end with best practices and hands on approach by means of the "PRACTICAL COURSE IN TESTING". The R&D lab equipped with latest computerized finger touch equipment will familiarise participants with latest technology in testing and analysis. Practical knowledge imparted by hands on training coupled with theoretical overview during the course is unmatched.

This course is ideally suited for training personnel engaged in Testing and Quality Control at Corrugated Box Manufacturers, End Users and Others connected with Corrugated Packaging.

Presentation: Discussion, Demonstration and Practicals.

Recognition: Certificate based on attendance, participation, performance.
