The packaging industry is a broad and diverse area which encompasses a wide range of packaging for an endless number of products. Packaging is key to the success of a product; not only should it be practical and fit for purpose, it also needs to encourage customers to buy. The role of packaging has expanded further over recent years, with requirements including machine identification and the promotion of additional information.
The industry’s unique needs of process control and quality assurance must be satisfied with high-accuracy precision measurement equipment, ensuring that the products manufactured meet the highest standards of visual precision and reliability.
