The objective of the OMAC Packaging Workgroup (OPW) is to maximize the business value of packaging machinery by improving automation guidelines and standards. This will lead to improved flexibility, improved capability, and reduced system integration costs.
To attain this goal, we work with automation suppliers, OEMs, and trade groups worldwide to encourage their support of the OMAC Packaging Guidelines throughout their products and practices, creating a mutually beneficial environment for the guidelines.
The OMAC Packaging Guidelines make packaging operations more effective by simplifying customization and integration, which enables world class packaging operations. When implemented, packaging companies and their partners gain a competitive advantage as they leverage an integrated supply chain to optimize operations.
