The market for packaging equipment is booming

Packaging equipment and packaging machines have become increasingly sought after as businesses attempt to capitalise on the ever-growing marketplace.

Packing

Packaging must be efficient in both form and function to ensure consumer satisfaction, and advancements in technology have made it possible for companies to provide these essentials without having to suffer too greatly from added expense.

Companies looking to bolster their business understand the importance of high-quality packaging solutions, which has caused demand for top-tier packaging equipment from manufacturers to skyrocket. Investing in suitable packaging equipment is a major trend that many businesses are turning to if they want to stay ahead of the competition.

The huge surge in demand for packaging equipment has meant that some companies are struggling to find enough workers to work in their warehouses to assist in the packing process. Southgate Global, an international logistics provider, reported that they are facing sustained growth challenges when it comes to recruiting warehouse personnel which they claim is due in part to the trend among business owners who want their goods shipped faster than before.

The Growth of Packaging Machinery

With e-commerce booming at a 25% annual growth rate in Great Britain; packaging machinery purchases will continue growing too. This inevitably means more work needs to be done by skilled employees such as forklift operators and machine technicians.

David Grantham from Southgate Global said, “In an increasingly competitive market, levels of automation within manufacturing can certainly help improve efficiencies when pressures on the workforce continue to be a cause for concern.” With this in mind, “case taping, stretch wrapping, shrink wrapping and heat-sealing machinery is some examples that automate workflows significantly increasing productivity as well reducing manual handling which ultimately improves quality with reduced material usage”.

He continued by saying “The use and growth over recent years also increased machinery used across different sectors” – whether at home or abroad thanks largely due its adaptability in different environments.

Types of Packaging Machines & Equipment

Packaging is a crucial part of the modern manufacturing process, allowing for the safe and cost-effective transfer of products around the world. Packaging machinery and equipment are designed to support this process, providing efficient and reliable ways to package objects.

In general, packaging solutions fall into two broad categories: manual and automatic. Manual solutions include items such as heat sealers which are used to close bags and packaging of items in bags, while automatic solutions usually involve sophisticated machines like strapping machines, and those that can fill, seal, label, and stack various containers. Different products require different types of packaging machinery and equipment; however, popular solutions include form-fill-seal machines, flow wrappers, and casing machines.

Each solution can be tailored to provide users with an optimised solution that will suit their specific needs and enhances productivity. With the full range of packaging machinery available that can cater to items manufactured for multiple industries including food, pharmaceutical, and retail with high levels of reliability the future of the packaging machinery supply industry is a positive one.
