Special purpose machinery

The need for packaging innovation in terms of equipment, processing and product design has never been greater. No matter how creative the concept, Mpac can design and custom-build special purpose machinery to solve your production and packaging challenges.

Gaining a sustained competitive advantage is essential to survive and thrive in global markets. Businesses who choose innovation in their packaging solutions will stand out from the crowd and lead their markets.

Introducing a new product or revitalised concept may be driven by the need to protect a leading brand, capitalise on emerging markets, improve shelf presence, embrace lean manufacturing principles, decrease packaging costs or reduce carbon footprint.

Whatever the challenge, Mpac draws on its proven engineering expertise to translate your goal into a commercial reality. With extensive experience in the design and build of special purpose machinery – plus a tried-and-tested, risk-managed process – we can fast-track new ideas to full-scale production; keeping you ahead of the competition.

Customers benefit from our industry-leading expertise in:

  • Filling of powders, liquids, solids and gels
  • Handling and conversion of reel-fed and sheet-based materials, including delicate filter papers, films, carton-board and laminates
  • Assembly automation and integration of robotics into machine designs
  • Custom machinery solutions for novel packaging and intricate product designs

Mpac’s special purpose machinery and technical consultancy service has been carefully structured to revolutionise your manufacturing strategy. You may face unique packaging challenges but, with our expert guidance, you can be sure of a successful outcome.

Our core focus is on innovation, productivity and reliability as it is at the heart of our stage-gate process, which has been developed to deliver projects efficiently and minimise risks. Working in collaboration with you, we agree a costed proposal and time schedule.

The importance of technology proving by concept design and feasibility studies

We would always recommend that innovative solutions are evaluated via a concept design and feasibility study and that new technologies are proven ahead of first machine build. This preliminary step provides:

  • An early indication of the technical and commercial viability of the project
  • Identification and testing of areas of high technical complexity to mitigate risks; such as missing product launch dates
  • Defined project milestones, deliverables and payment stages; providing you with greater flexibility and confidence of project success
