Pillow bag and cardboard packaging machines

Pillow bag and cardboard packaging machines involve a large product variety, resulting in the need for maximum flexibility. The machines produce many different pillow and packaging shapes. This is because new packaging concepts need to grab consumers' attention. The lot quantities become ever smaller and entail frequent format changes. The required flexibility and speed are reliably achieved with Balluff products.
