In this course, John Henry takes a deep dive into liquid filling machinery. He teaches all of the different architectures and their benefits/drawbacks as well as container handling and product handling. Whether you’re a new entrant in the packaging field or a seasoned professional, you likely have a depth of knowledge of some areas of liquid filling, but have limited knowledge in other areas. This will give you a breadth and depth of knowledge that you’re unlikely to find anywhere else. The Liquid Filling Machinery course will assist you in your next packaging project and to keep your existing packaging lines running smoothly. If you’re a package designer, this will help you design your packages to run more effectively.
