As technology within the industry advances, innovations in packaging equipment, such as a bagging machine, are making packaging more secure and affordable.
Bag packaging can be an essential element to the safe transportation of products along the supply chain. While manufacturers wish to take all the proper precautions in the creation of their items, all of these precautions can be undone if it is improperly transported. This is because damage could be done to the product, be it in the form of a letting the wrong contaminants in, or through physical harm.
For this reason, it is important that the proper bagging equipment is used to take care of the product. A bulk bag filling system need to be able to properly handle a product on all levels of operation from placing the product in the package itself, to the transportation once it has left the manufacturers hands. Fortunately there are a number of developments in bagging machinery that are making this possible.
Accounting for harsh packaging environments
One development within the industry is machines that can withstand extreme conditions. Some industrial operations work with a variety of tools and machinery that can create situations in which a product could be damaged once finished because of the facility in which it is produced. As a result it is extremely important that the packaging machinery be able to withstand such a harsh environment in order to be able to safely handle the product despite the conditions.
A story in Packaging World explains how one such bagging machine is able to do so. The structural make up of the bagging machine is made from stainless steel and a carbon fiber framework that make it able to withstand damage that could come from corrosion and oxidation. Also the way the bagging machine is constructed allows it operate in facilities that are regularly over 100 degrees Fahrenheit and 70 percent humidity, making it able to function in environments that are particularly harsh. These precautions ensure that it will be able to successfully package the product consistently, allowing for quality along the supply chain and ensuring the delivery of the product.
Allowing for product specific packaging
Foodbev highlights another bagging machine that is able to create bag-in-box packaging solutions that allow for producers to be able to make processes specific to the product they wish to package. This is important because product-specific packaging solutions can help prevent damage to the product that might otherwise occur if they were simply generically packaged.
Having a product-specific solution is also important because it can speed up production times allowing for more items to be produced and shipped in a specific amount of time. Some products also have sanitation requirements that make it especially essential to make sure that the product is properly stored. For example, many pharmaceutical and food products need to make sure that contaminants that could either damage the product or render it useless for the purchaser are kept out. Again, the proper packaging system in these situations becomes essential to ensuring consistency along the manufacturing production chain.
