Abstract: On site installations of printers has become an increased source of un-packaged transit in recent years for Lexmark. This paper reviews what the Lexmark Packaging team has found by participating in these installations. Additionally, this paper will cover how the Lexmark Packaging team is adapting current specifications along with the ISTA standards to simulate the environment encountered during these installations. • It is critical to learn as much as possible about the environments your packaging/product encounters. • The equipment in a packaging lab can have value beyond traditional style package testing. • Just because your product leaves your site in packaging doesn't mean it will arrive at the end user in that packaging.
