An Increase in Automation
Sixty-three percent of companies that participated in PMMI's report are looking for new technologies to improve food quality, eliminate contamination, and prolong shelf life. It's predicted that much of these new technologies will come in the form of automated food packing ewuipment, as nearly half of these companies predicted increased spending on equipment in the next two years.
Automated packaging machinery will play an ever greater role in food production and processing, enabling companies to produce more for less in a shorter time. This can greatly increase food security, reduce food waste, and encourage market innovation.
The entire packaging process is being automated
FMMI had claimed that automation has grown exponentially in food and beverage plants everywhere, but a world where packaging and processing lines are 100% automated from beginning to end isn’t far in our future. In fact, that’s already the case in some places.
We’re seeing the shift from human to robot across every conventional touch point in a facility, including:
· Primary, secondary and tertiary packaging
Human intervention is slowly being replaced with machines that can accomplish the same tasks with a few taps of a touch screen.
One area I’m seeing more of this trend is in quality control inspection. For example, take bottle filling, which typically involves inspection of incoming materials and inspection of the final product post-filling. Previously, workers had to take a bottle from the line, inspect it and release it. Now that can be done online and in-line, effectively taking the human interaction out of the process. Thanks to automation, pouches can be inspected as they’re being filled.
Although, someone view this shift to mean less jobs on facility floors, but it’s also increasing the demand for more specialized workers to operate these automated systems. Regardless of your perspective, the growing prevalence of automation is making packaging and processing lines more efficient.
But the kind of Packing machine is abundant with huge potential. As we know, there are verity kind of packing machine such as paste packingmachine, powder packing machine, liquid packing machine…etc. Much packingmachine are already put into market and use in wide field. At the meanwhile,the automation function of the packing machine is improved with the process ofthe automation technology. The achievement of the packing machine today isrelated to the market competition, improving equipment and its function. Marketcompetition is a double-edged sword, it accelerates the evolution process andalso the process of development. The development of the packing machine in thefuture still can out of the market and should participate in market competitionactively.
