About Hanatek Instruments

Hanatek is the brand name of the quality control test instruments manufactured by Rhopoint Instruments for the flexible packaging industry.

Hanatek Ltd. was established in 1992 as a contract testing company and manufacturer of test instruments for plastics and cartonboard, headquartered within PIRA, Leatherhead, UK.

In 2006, Hanatek Ltd. was acquired by Rhopoint Instruments and since this time, the product range has been re-developed and expanded to incorporate a variety of instruments to provide manufacturers and users of flexible packaging material with consistently faster packaging speeds with the same batch to batch quality.

Our instruments are designed to be used in both research and development and production environments in numerous industries including: plastic film, carton board, paper, corrugated board, textile, inks and coatings, labels etc.

Hanatek sample preparation equipment allows our customers to prepare products or raw materials for testing in the most efficient manner possible, saving time in production or the test laboratory.
