The development trend of packaging machinery and equipment in the world


Development trends.

1. Strong flexibility.

With a simple operation of the same packaging machine, the type and packaging form of the packaged product can be changed. This function is very effective for the market demand of small batches and multiple varieties.

2. High precision, high speed and high efficiency.

The equipment can not only work at high speed and stability, but also reduce the time of abnormal production as much as possible (such as waiting for raw materials, mechanical maintenance, finding and troubleshooting, etc.), which is the most direct means of improving efficiency.

3. Safe, energy-saving and environmentally friendly.

This includes maximum protection of the personal safety of equipment operators and product consumers, minimizing energy consumption (e.g. electricity, water, gas) and using appropriate processes to minimize the adverse environmental impact of the production process.

4. Strong interconnection.

To be able to easily and quickly realize the communication between stand-alone machines, so that the stand-alone machines are connected into a complete line, and the communication between the stand-alone or complete line and the upper monitoring system (such as SCADA, MES, ERP, etc.) can be easily and quickly realized. This is the basis for monitoring, counting and analyzing indicators such as packaging line efficiency and energy consumption.

5. The control software of the machine can be easily modified and maintained.

The standardization of machine control software makes the structure of the control program clear, legible and easy to understand. In this way, the program prepared by one engineer can be easily understood by other engineers, and the maintenance and upgrade of the system can be completed easily and quickly. This is very beneficial for reducing downtime and reducing the long-term operating costs of the business.

6. Automatic fault diagnosis and automatic recovery.

The implementation of this function reduces troubleshooting time and labor costs and personnel training costs.

The gap between China's packaging equipment and international advanced packaging equipment is reflected in the above six points. This is related to China's general economic environment in the past 30 years. Our labor force is abundant and cheap, we do not pay enough attention to the protection of energy and the environment, and the economic development model is crude to extensive. In such an environment, the main requirement of enterprises for packaging equipment is to meet the production requirements under the premise of the price as low as possible. This is because packaging companies can obtain sufficient manpower and resources to make up for the lack of low automation and low equipment; Moreover, most packaging enterprise operators only consider short-term operation, do not consider the long-term operating costs of the enterprise, and do not have strict requirements for the six points mentioned earlier. This prompts packaging machinery manufacturers to reduce product costs as much as possible when producing packaging machines, and use low-priced parts to improve the price competitiveness of products. Although the price of such equipment is low, in the long-term use of packaging enterprises, it will cause the purchase of spare parts, energy consumption, maintenance, system upgrades, personnel training and many other operating costs to increase.

With the development of China's economy, the mode of operation is changing from extensive to intensive. Government management departments are putting forward higher requirements for energy consumption and environmental protection. China's human resource costs are increasing year by year, and the evaluation of enterprise operations will become more rational. The overall cost of doing business (TCO) will be considered as an important indicator. Therefore, packaging machinery manufacturers should see this trend, and gradually design and produce flexible, efficient, environmentally friendly, energy-saving, convenient maintenance automation, intelligent packaging equipment. Only based on high-quality products, enterprises can achieve good development, and the overall level of China's packaging equipment can be improved.
