This was a very labor-intensive packaging process that required opening the bag by hand, inserting the product, closing and sealing the bag, and affixing a printed label on the outside. When Automated Packaging Systems introduced MLT1 and MLT2, new plastic bag materials that meets Mil Spec DTL-117H it opened the door for a new type of bag packaging that yields tremendous improvements in productivity.
