Packaging Engineering 

For our manufacturing projects, our packaging engineers design, develop, and implement packaging solutions for a variety of food and beverage and pharmaceutical products. They collaborate with cross-functional teams to ensure packaging meets regulatory requirements, sustainability goals, and cost objectives.

Our packaging engineers work closely with equipment vendors to select the right solution for each client, looking at production volume, packaging type, automation needs, and product characteristics. They also engineer line layout and integration collaborating with facility planners on product flow, space utilization, ergonomics, and safety requirements. By using the latest technology, our packaging engineers ensure the facilities engineering seamlessly integrates with other production processes, optimizing workflow and minimizing bottlenecks.

Process and Packaging Line Simulation

Our team builds computer simulation models of real-life manufacturing systems through FlexSim to visualize, analyze, and run experiments in a virtual environment. By building these virtually before building them in the manufacturing facility, we can help ensure operational efficiency in process and packaging lines and reduce risk during production.
