Here at Cheshire Packaging, we are always looking to implement new manufacturing technologies to produce the best display packaging for our customers.
The recent Automate/Pro Mat exhibition in Detroit, Michigan in the US, displayed a number of upcoming trends that could help automate many tasks when producing a host of different kinds of packaging.
In our latest blog, we are going to look at some trends that piqued our interest –
Combining Autonomous and Articulated Robots
Articulated arm robots have been used in the display packaging industry for some time as having autonomous mobile robots (AMR). On display at the exhibition was a combination of the two, with a collaborative arm mounted onto an AMR.
With the addition of the robot arm, this allows the AMR to be completely autonomous, including loading and unloading.
Saw Goodbye to Repetitive Strains
This unique tool mount’s to the user’s torso and arms with the exoskeleton spring loaded meaning it takes the work out of repetitive tasks.
For example, when lowering boxes from shelves, the springs will absorb the weight.
Mobile Support for Engineers
Whilst having a tablet handy for packaging engineers may feel impractical, new technology in the shape of a headset allows users to use voice activations and take pictures and videos that can be sent to technical support.

Environmentally friendly packaging is one of the ways Cheshire Packaging is looking out for the future of our planet. More and more companies are looking to use more environmentally friendly solutions for their packaging materials.
One other trend that has been revealed in a recent study is the increased use of SKU’s (stock keeping units), a code (similar to a barcode) to highlight a unique product line. Whereas barcodes need to be scanned, SKU’s can be understood by humans without the need for barcode scanners.
Brands Loyal to Environmentally Friendly Packaging
An industry survey of 250 consumer packaged goods companies has stated that 75% of brand owners are willing to spend significantly more on the packaging with an increased spend of 10%.
Many have said that the reason for this is to keep up with an increasingly competitive landscape and changing consumer tastes. As brands continue to diversify there is a greater demand for bespoke packaging that will transport a variety of goods safely and display units that instantly grab customers attention.
Here at Cheshire Packaging, we specialise in tailored packaging that helps our clients achieve their sales targets.
The survey also showed 85% of brand owners would specify using recyclable material for their packaging, with an expectation that demand for this packaging will grow 30-40% in the next two years.
Companies are also looking for packaging that’s easier to open with the aim to produce more single-serve packages for their stores.

The growth of bespoke packaging for brands comes with the rise of anti-counterfeit solutions to fight against fake products.
Cheshire Packaging regularly works with a host of well-known brands and we are constantly looking at innovative ways to help them stand out on the shelf and everywhere else in-store.
A recent survey from a market research company has revealed that brands are investing more in their packaging to help stay one step ahead of counterfeiters.
According to the International Trademark Association, the total cost of fakes topped just under £400 million last year alone!
Providers of Innovative Bespoke Packaging
The anti-counterfeit packaging landscape is constantly changing, but here at Cheshire Packaging, we pride ourselves on being innovators and giving our customers the latest design solutions that look great and are safe.

Transit packaging in Huddersfield is just one of a host of services offered by the leading packaging solutions providers – Cheshire Packaging!
We often get quizzed about our range of transit packaging, so we’re going to share some of the most popular questions from our customers, plus the answers.
What Materials Work Best for Transit Packaging?
The choice of packaging material depends on the size and the products you want to ship. Your shipping boxes need to be robust and give the maximum amount of protection to your goods whilst in transit. For higher loads using the recyclable corrugated board is generally the most popular option.
Does Transit Packaging Undermine the Product’s Sale Packaging?
Not at all. If you’ve decided to have bespoke designs for a special or new product box, this won’t be affected by transit packaging. The ideal way to get the best of both worlds is by talking this through with our team during the design stage for your packaging.
Can My Transit Packaging Be Printed On?
Yes, this is another opportunity to extend your brand awareness and spread the word about a new product subtly.
Is My Packaging Environmentally Friendly?
Here at Cheshire Packaging, we are extremely conscious of our commitment to the environment, which is the reason why all of our packaging solutions are made from recyclable materials.
By working with us you will be doing your bit to help create an eco-friendlier world.

Cheshire Packaging prides itself on producing eco-friendly packaging in Bolton for a wide range of customers.
The environment and climate change have hit the headlines recently with Greenpeace activists protesting outside BP’s head offices in London earlier this week.
Once you have finished with your cardboard packaging you may be wondering what’s the best way to recycle it, but don’t worry we’ve got you covered.
Recycling Eco-Friendly Packaging in Bolton
Cardboard is easy to break down so it can be easily stored ready for recycling or in preparation for compost.
- First, you will need to remove all plastic and vinyl packaging tape from the box, which is used to seal it shut. This can also be disposed of the same as regular rubbish.
- Once this non-recyclable tape has been removed you can easily flatten the box out, ensuring the top and bottom flaps are straight and push the opposite corners together.
- The box should close up making it flat and easy to store or transport. If you’re recycling the packaging it needs to be kept in a dry place ready for collection, as wet cardboard is harder to handle when wet and recycle.
Here’s a couple of questions we are asked regularly regarding eco-friendly packaging.
Is Cardboard Packaging Biodegradable?
Yes, cardboard is biodegradable because it will break down and decompose naturally, although the time it takes will differ depending on the environment it’s in.
Can Corrugated Carboard be Recycled?
The best thing about corrugated cardboard is that it’s completely recyclable and used again for other cardboard packaging and boxes.

The design of your strut cards is crucial and our innovative designers will create something truly special in any shape or size.
Strut Cards in Chester Sell Dreams
One of the industries where show cards are a great marketing tool is in the beauty and cosmetics sector.

How do you drive sales conversions? The positioning of advertising and product placement is key to catching your customers eye with lower priced products or sale items working better nearer to till points. Creating a tailored space for a new must-have item will help it stand out from the crowd.
