Major changes and updates in the 4th edition including color illustrations, sustainability strategies, statistical process control, operational procedures, and packaging development and regulation guide

Since its inception as an instructional text for the Institute of Packaging Professionals, the present book has grown to be the single most important and comprehensive introduction to all phases of packaging technology in the English language. Written clearly and with many color illustrations, the book is a step-by-step explanation of packaging design, materials, and manufacturing applicable to a wide range of industries. It demonstrates how packages are engineered, produced, and eventually recycled. Special attention is given to the details of machinery and processing, as well as advanced materials. The 4th edition has been systematically updated and now offers the technical foundations for emerging trends such as sustainable packaging technologies. Also in the 4th edition is new material on statistical process control for operations and quality control methods, as well as a checklist-based guide to package development and regulations. To reinforce understanding and skills, review questions and problems are added at the end of every chapter.
