Packaging machinery and line operations

G. Crompton,     The Packaging Society, UK

Abstract:

This chapter gives an introduction to help build the basic understanding of the principles of operation of the main types of packaging machine. The design and operation of a packaging filling line is a complex task, calling for a multidisciplinary team, within which each will require a broad understanding, in addition to their own specialist field. It is inevitable that the study of this subject will necessitate reference to the material-specific chapters throughout this text. In addition, reference to Chapter 4 and Chapter 21 is highly recommended.
