Being a materials guy, I would like to know what materials are used for snack product bags in Australia. Come to think of it, I'm not sure that I know very much about what materials are used for snack product bags in the US. Why are (or were) different materials used? Why is there such a big difference in static build-up? Are there any packaging engineers out there who could enlighten me about this?
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
