Technical analysis of flexible packaging materials saves time to the production process, by avoiding unnecessary and time-consuming trials on the machine. Its main role is to predict the behavior of the packaging material on the machine and provide guidelines to the operators.

Technical analysis is also applied for troubleshooting and specifies the quality of the final packaging material.
