Packaging & Converting

Product packaging plays an essential role in the sales food chain, protecting the contents, providing consumer instructions, and attracting the purchaser to pick the product up and buy it in the first place.

Machine automation helps in preserving product quality and moving the product from factory to store shelves as quickly as possible. Product quality is not the only quality that matters. If a box is torn, the can dented, or even if a label is crooked, a customer may be less likely to purchase the contents. This places as much responsibility for the sale on the packaging and converting machine builders as on the manufacturers of the products.

Proven Solutions

We’ve helped develop automatic converting equipment for labelers that handle everything from bottles to detergent jugs to sachets for condiments like ketchup and mustard. We specialize in motion designs for a variety of sizes, weights, and form factors. The label may be incidental to the performance of a product, but it remains the first part of the product that the customer sees. The labeling equipment needs to apply the label in the correct position, without damaging it, and it needs to do so at very high speed.

Packaging and converting equipment also need to be cost effective. Manufacturers have to spend money on washdown motors for processing and packaging. They want their labelers to be as economical as possible. Motion Solutions excels at cost-down engineering of machine automation components. We leverage our position as a distributor to find the most cost-efficient parts for the job, modify parts to streamline test and assembly, and, if necessary, redesign the automatic packaging assembly entirely to wind up with a system that meets all customer specifications at a lower overall price.
