Understanding the properties of packaging material and considerations for procurement  is a highly scientific process that all staff whose position brings them in contact with packaging should be familiar with.
  • What are the main packaging materials?
  • What processes do they use?
  • How are they best applied to Rigid Plastics •  Flexible Packaging • Paper & Board
  • How to optimise production & procurement
An essential guide for both local Brand owners & Packaging Suppliers to commissioning materials for packaging.
These  Modules are delivered  at PRELIMINARY & INTERMEDIATE levels for Brand Owners & Packaging Suppliers to provide a solid technical foundation

 

PACKAGING 301.1 Packaging Material Technology
Level: Preliminary
Duration: 1/2 Day

Who Should Attend?

Objectives:
An entry level course to provide a foundation for packaging conversion technology including the opportunities and limitations of each process.
Outcomes:
Students will gain an appreciation of different materials & production processes, what components are produced by each and why. How different materials provide protection.

Course Content:

Introduction to Packaging Materials

  • What materials & processes are typically used for end use products:
    • Food, Beverage, Household Products, Cosmetics, Consumer Electronics etc

Polymers

  • What polymers (plastics) are used in rigid and flexible plastics manufacture.
  • What are their key properties


Moulding Processes

  • Blow, Injection, Injection Blow and Injection Stretch Blow what are they and when are they used
  • Flexible Materials and Conversion Processes
  • Mono, multi-layer and laminate materials what are they and what do they offer

Paper and Board

Packaging 301.3: Packaging Material Technology

An in-depth analysis of Packaging Conversion Technology & how decisions about materials impact on costs.

• Detailed analysis of the processes used

• Advantages, disadvantages of these processes.

These Modules can be delivered individually or together as a 4 day course to give comprehensive production knowledge.

It is recommended that Print Modules from Unit 303 Print Production & Management be incorporated into this course.

Packaging 301.3: Packaging Material Technology
Level: Advanced
Duration: 1, 2 or 3 Days

Who Should Attend?

Packaging Technologists and Structural Designers etc who require a good understanding of packaging conversion technologies and how they impact costs.

This  Unit is delivered  at ADVANCED level only and is delivered as three separate Modules to suit your needs:

  • A. Polymers
  • B. Flexible Materials & Conversion
  • C. Paper & Board

Note: These topics can be delivered individually, or together as a 4-Day complete Material Technology.

They can also be combined with Module 303.2: Managing Pre-press & Print for Packaging for a comprehensive 1 week Packaging Technology Course.

 

Objectives:

To provide an in depth analysis of packaging conversion technologies, what is state of the art, what are the main cost drivers and why cost models are useful. How paper and board is produced, including corrugation and box making

Outcomes:

Students have a detailed understanding of all packaging conversion processes, what is state of the art and when different conversion processes/equipment should be used. They will understand what is the cost impact of decisions and what factors effect quality
