Pouches are everywhere. Consider a typical walk-through of a supermarket or big-box store and you're guaranteed seeing a multitude of products packed in pouches. The format's popularity is obvious.
What might not seem so apparent is the best way to get those products on their way to market. Today, end-of-line automation can pave the way toward efficient, cost-effective methods of providing pouched products to consumers.
A simple maxim covers the essence of this approach: A system that handles flexible packaging must be flexible. For all its appeal, however, automation isn't simply a no-brainer. Many challenges exist when utilizing or considering end-of-the-line automation technology.
