Packaging machinery is developing with the emergence of new packaging materials and continuous innovation of packaging technology.
China's invention of papermaking technology has historically provided conditions for pioneering paper packaging.
The world's paper price fell sharply in 1850, and paper packaging began to be used for food.
In 1852, F. Lee of the United States created the paper bag making machine, and the paper product machinery appeared.
In 1861, Germany established the world's first packaging machinery factory, and in 1911 produced a fully automatic forming, filling and sealing machine.
Production of liquid filling machines began in the United States in 1890 and gravity filling machines were produced in 1902.
At the beginning of the 20th century, P. Durand in the United Kingdom used metal containers to store food, which led to various canned foods.
Since the 1960s, new materials have gradually replaced traditional packaging materials, especially after the use of plastic packaging materials, major changes have taken place in packaging machinery. The rise of supermarkets has put forward new requirements for the packaging of goods.
In order to ensure the fast and safe transportation of goods, containers have emerged at the historic moment, and the size of the container body has gradually been standardized and serialized, thereby promoting the further improvement and development of packaging machinery.
