The fast-moving market needs and the high standards set by the national and international legislation and the consumers, led flexible packaging to a dynamic and complicated system. Its design has always been a challenge and needs to be managed with caution and expertise.
Launching of new products with new package requires a large amount of trial and errors on the production process, using different packaging materials, change in machinery’s working parameters or even complete alteration of some parts on the line. All the above waste time, effort and resources. When these are not tackled from the very beginning of the project, they lead the user to sacrifice features of the packaging material, productivity, or even shelf life of the product, after the material has been industrially launched.
Cases like the above have to be carefully designed, using a step by step approach, impartiality and expertise. Technical support from dedicated laboratory tests is a must, in order to safeguard the system designed from any future surprises.
