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.

In todays global economy, manufacturers continue to strive for new ways to reduce delivery times, be more efficient with available resources, and increase profitability, all while maintaining their competitive advantage. When manufacturers come together and share best practices, the whole industry benefits. The Organization for Machine Automation and Control (OMAC) was formed to meet this purpose and help manufacturers work together to find new and innovative ways to be successful their production operations. OMAC brought together leading manufacturers representing End-User Manufacturers, OEM Machine Builders, System Integrators, Technology Providers, and Non-Profit / Government Agency organizations to address issues that confront global manufacturing today. OMACs two working groups, Packaging and Machine Tool, lead the way in producing industry consensus guidelines that help manufacturers reduce their delivery times, be more efficient with available resources, and increase profitability, all while maintaining their competitive advantage. OMAC is a charter member of the Automation Federation.
