Packaging machinery automates the process of forming the packaging, in relation to the product it is to contain, with the aim of making it faster, therefore more economical, increasing the company’s productivity. In each sector, then, packaging responds to specific needs: from the need to preserve the contents intact, to the need to avoid external contamination from production to consumption of the product itself. For example, the packaging of food products responds both to the need to keep the product intact, and to keep it in safe hygienic conditions. It is precisely in relation to the function that the packaging must fulfil that the automatic machine is designed: for example, packaging machines for food products, including beverages, must allow a packaging process that guarantees adequate hygiene standards.
