Virtual packaging machinery training offers interactive experience
Feature Image 1 In the "real world," an experienced machine operator may train a new hire how to operate, change over, and/or maintain packaging equipment. That may be the way it's "always been done," but it may be inefficient and inconsistent. A more standardized training approach that could address the longstanding concerns of how to replace the knowledge of aging and retiring packaging veterans exists in the form of computerized "virtual training" programs for manufacturing and packaging equipment that involves animated and interactive videos and reference materials.

Cosmetics legal changes on the way?
Feature Image 4 Cosmetics are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration with the lightest of touches. But when a Congressional hearing in March examined just how the FDA does what it does, the chances looked good that the agency soon would get the power to do more, according to Eric F. Greenberg, Attorney-at-Law and legal columnist for Healthcare Packaging and Packaging World.
