Choosing Packaging Machinery

Choosing packaging machinery includes an assessment of technical capabilities, labor requirements, worker safety, maintainability, serviceability, reliability, ability to integrate into the packaging line, capital cost, floorspace, flexibility (change-over, materials, multiple products, etc.), energy requirements, quality of outgoing packages, qualifications (for food, pharmaceuticals, etc.), throughput, efficiency, productivity, ergonomics, return on investment, etc.


Packaging machinery can be:

purchased as standard, off-the-shelf equipment

purchased custom-made or custom-tailored to specific operations

purchased refurbished and upgraded

manufactured or modified by in-house engineers and maintenance staff

In addition to purchasing equipment, leasing options are often attractive.

Some industries must perform periodic wash down s of all equipment. This high pressure chemical washing puts special demands on machinery and control systems. Condensation within closed portions of machinery can also be problematic.

Machinery needs to keep control of the product being packaged. For example, powders need to be stable, liquids cannot slosh out, etc.

Some manufacturers decide not to do their own packaging but to employ contract packagers to perform all or some operations. Capital, labor, and other costs are outsourced.
