History of Funtion Pack
Funtion Pack Machinery Shanghai Co., Ltd. was founded in 1985, by Dr. Cai and his son. The business opened under the brand – SQUARESTAR. Dr. Cai noticed that the price of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC’s) and Pneumatics for automation had dropped to the point where they would soon replace single point mechanized machinery. No industry had more single-point, cam-driven machinery being sold in the 1980s than the packaging industry.
The packaging industry had been dominated by mechanical engineering that was clearly going to be rapidly transformed by the onslaught of electrical engineering, automation, and programming. After much research, he convinced his sons to join him, and Funtion Pack was born in Shanghai, China. As it turned out, it was an ideal time to enter the industry because the barrier to entry had dropped significantly while established packaging machinery and engineering companies struggled to replace and rethink their legacy systems. At that point, Funtion Pack Company’s primary focus was capping, and labeling machines. Our first labeling machine was a full automatic self-adhesive labeling system for cylinder containers, which is still one of our most popular labelers today. By 2005, we were developing and manufacturing complete tablet & capsule in-line counting and bottling systems running at speeds of up to 80 bottles per minute and had outgrown our facility. This achievement led to the design of our first custom facility made to manufacture packaging machinery.
