Course description

View Course Outline

The aim of this 90-minute accredited training is to aid in the design process of packaging by comprehending the characteristics of plastic materials and their behavior in film converting processes. Additionally, the course will cover the crucial topics of materials-machinery aspects, including sealing parameters, form/fill/seal processes, and key packaging equipment parameters. The training will also provide valuable troubleshooting techniques to help professionals understand the reasons for packaging operation failure, such as imperfectly formed packages, pinhole leaks, wrinkles in sealing areas, adhesion problems, and more.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the various types of plastics used in packaging structures
  • Explain the properties of various plastics and how these materials can be beneficial in packaging designs
  • Select the best process of film conversion based on the final package design targets
  • Explain the types of packaging machinery used in Form/Fill/Seal operations
  • Describe packaging machinery auxiliary processes such as methods of product metering into packages (weight x volume), Modified Atmosphere Packaging, applications with re-closing features, etc.
  • Design a packaging line by properly selecting the film structure and the packaging machinery
  • Explain the influence of the packaging machinery parameters in the packaging process
  • Troubleshoot a packaging operation and explain when it is a materials or machinery issue
