Packaging Materials and Machinery

It is foreseeable that consumption data for packaging systems will be requested more and more frequently in future. But how can data from different manufacturers be compared? Can the data be transferred to the conditions in user operation? Do they stand up to scrutiny? VDMA 8751: 2019-03 "Filling and packaging machines - Specification and measurement of energy and media consumption" provides the basis for answering these questions.
The third edition of VDMA Food Processing and Packaging Machinery Document No. 2 has been published recently.
The new version of DIN 8743 will be published in January 2014. Anyone who refers to the DIN 8743 key figures for machine acceptance in the contract should consider the changes to the standard.
The subject of this VDMA standard sheet is films for the production of blister packs for pharmaceuticals on thermoforming, filling and sealing machines (so-called blister machines).
The professional association publication published in 2006 defines leak tightness classes for pouches and thermoformed packaging.
The Food Machinery and Packaging Machinery Association has published a position paper on materials and articles for contact with gases for food applications dated 4 October 2016.
The VDMA working group "Interface problems with aseptic systems" has compiled an overview of the areas of application for disinfection processes used in hygienic filling machines.
