Across a number of industries, flexible packaging stands as one of the most valuable and frequently used substrates on the market today. An umbrella term used to describe a range of packaging forms constructed from plastic, paper, aluminum foil, coated paper, and/or film, flexible packaging is valued for its cost-effectiveness and ability to prolong shelf-life. As such, bags, pouches, packages, and cartons made from flexible packaging are commonly found throughout the food industry, beverage packaging, pharmaceutical development, and personal care/cosmetics among others.
In each of these fields, companies use flexible packaging to house thousands of products per day. To achieve this level of output, businesses commonly utilize industrial production lines that move at hundreds of meters per minute. For peak performance and to avoid costly downtime, companies must use line hardware that is capable of reliable performance day-in and day-out. This is especially true when it comes to industrial printing.
Whether a company is producing bagged snack food or pharmaceutical blister packs, they are required by both supply chain guidelines and federal regulations to place traceable codes and markings on their products. If these codes are absent, poorly placed, or filled with incorrect information, companies may need to perform costly recalls, pay penalties, risk bad publicity, and/or sour supply chain relationships.
