PRODUCT PORTFOLIO 
Bonfiglioli Engineering offers a wide production range of laboratories as well as in-line machines with the aim of verifying, based on four complementary technologies: Container Closure Integrity Testing, Visual Inspection, Leak Testing and Headspace Gas Analysis:
- Presence of leaks 
- Headspace gas content
- Existence of visible foreign materials.
Testing is quick, reliable and repeatable and gives consistent results for a comprehensive batch control, always without altering the container features.
