“Smart packaging has been the buzzword of the packaging industry for several years now,” explains Frank Jäger, Managing Director at Faubel, who attended the conference in Hamburg from 9 to 10 October 2018.
The program truly reflected how versatile smart packaging is. In his talk “Bringing IoT (Internet of Things) to the Pharmaceutical Packaging Industry”, Jäger presented Faubel’s approach to this topic. “Unmanageable diversity tends to generate uncertainty among our customers. That’s why we offer them full service packages encompassing initial needs identification, concept development as well as the provision of all components such as RFID tags and software. After that comes system integration based on data protection and encryption.” Subsequently, he talked about the high quality and safety standards of the pharmaceutical industry with partners from engineering and high-tech industries. Towards the end of the conference, Frank Jäger drew the following conclusion: “the questions asked by the audience confirmed that we are doing the right thing. Offering all-round service is a decisive advantage in smart packaging, because the smallest effort and the greatest added value for customers can only be delivered by package solutions.”
