Each DISCMASTER dispenser guarantees optimal performance and longevity thanks to robust testing. Mast Group Ltd. validates dispensers based on a sample size driven by BS 6001. The dispensers are validated by carrying out a quality control procedure which involves a visual inspection as well as in-house performance testing with a full set of dispense operations. The dispensing mechanism is tested extensively across the range of MAST® DISCMASTER products, dispensing tens of thousands of discs. Each design is also subjected to a longevity test, simulating over 50,000 dispensing cycles on a mechanical test rig.
