Almost any industry today requires some sort of packaging process to properly store, preserve and transport all kinds of goods. This includes industry segments such as food and beverage, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, chemicals and electronics, among many others. With the many challenges faced in today’s competitive environment, companies are always looking to optimize their packaging processes through the implementation of packaging systems that are fast, reliable, efficient and cost effective.

Packaging machinery can be manual, semiautomated or fully automated and there are many types of packaging equipment, depending on the type and size of the product that needs to be packaged. Main types of machinery used in packaging systems include conveyor belts, shrink tunnels, stretch wrappers, formfill-seal machines, carded packaging machines and case erectors.
