Allied Development Corp. (www.allied-dev.com) publishes “Barrier Materials for Flexible Packaging 2011 to 2016”, a global industry report which provides a clear and comprehensive analysis of barrier materials that restrict the transmission of oxygen and moisture vapor through flexible packaging films. The report provides volumetric and revenue forecasts for barrier materials through 2016.

Allied Development’s newest study examines the full range of commercially proven technologies from the perspectives of their functional ability to meet consumer needs, their worldwide market potential, economic profiles, and environmental impact. The 420-page study describes producer strategies for extending the life cycles of these established products, as well as the potential of several emerging technologies (e.g. ultra-high barrier metallized film) to improve or supplant them.

This is the first global industry report on barrier materials to calculate greenhouse gas GHG releases for flexible packaging films categorized by their oxygen transmission rates.

In-depth market, economic and environmental analyses – depicted in over 100 figures and tables -- are presented for barrier materials that provide oxygen transmission rates from zero to 77.5 cc/m2/day (5 cc/100 in2/day) and/or moisture vapor transmission rates from zero to 1.5 gm/m2/day (0.10 gm/100 in2/day). The study profiles 34 established and upcoming producers of barrier materials, serving the six major geographic markets for flexible packaging.

Achieving High Speeds and Maximizing Productivity on Your Packaging Line

Increase efficiency and reduce costs by deploying high speed robotic picking on your line today.  BPA Delta style robots coupled with Cognex Vision Systems provide the fastest platform for pick and place applications.  BPA Delta Style robots are faster and reduce more human touch points than other available methods.  By utilizing a Cognex Vision System you increase quality and efficiency while reducing mechanical fixturing and labor hour costs.  BPA Delta Style Robots with Cognex Vision Systems quickly, accurately and efficiently load random oriented product into containers, wrappers or hffs machines all “on the fly” without stopping or indexing production, this leads to higher Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE)
