Adapt Map

ADAPT MAP Respiration Chamber

Experts in the development and production of flexible packaging that can extend the shelf life of a range of products, the Ultimate Packaging technical team has designed and built the Adapt MAP mobile respiration chamber to enable the real-time testing of a range of products by our customers. The chamber is completely mobile so it can be used in situ by our customers to test crops as they are harvested; perfect to understand the respiration rates of fresh produce and therefore create the perfect Adapt MAP laser perforation pattern for packaging.

Adapt MAP packaging technology is adaptable to support delicate crops throughout the season. As the crops are tested the laser perforation added to packaging can be adapted. The chamber is used to collect data which is then emailed directly to the Ultimate Packaging technical team for analysis. The technical team then specify an Adapt MAP laser perforation pattern that is added to the film as part of the conversion process using Ultimate Packaging’s state-of-the-art laser perforation system.
