Packaging machines take care of enclosing products in order to protect the products for distribution, storage or sale. There are different types of packaging which can be used. Many products are packed individually, followed by packing them together in a group unit before  being shipped out.

The type of packaging machine to use, depends on the products which require packing. For example case packaging machines are designed to work with all kinds of products, wherever there is mass production. The machine packs the product in such a way, that the product is ready to go to its next destination.
