The development trend of world packaging machine equipment

The development trend of world packaging machine equipment

Development trend.

1. Flexible.

The type and packaging form of packaged products can be changed by simply operating the same packaging machine. This function is very effective for small batch and multi variety market demand.

2. High precision, high speed and high efficiency.

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

3. Safety, energy saving and environmental protection.

This includes protecting the personal safety of equipment operators and product consumers to the greatest extent, reducing the consumption of energy (such as electricity, water and gas) as much as possible, and adopting appropriate processes to minimize the adverse impact of the production process on the environment.

4. Strong interconnection.

The communication between single machines shall be realized conveniently and quickly, so that the single machine can be connected into the whole line, and the communication between the single machine or the whole line and the upper monitoring system (such as SCADA, MES, ERP, etc.) can also be realized conveniently and quickly. This is the basis for monitoring, statistics and analysis of packaging line efficiency, energy consumption and other indicators.

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

The standardization of machine control software makes the structure of control program clear, readable and easy to understand. In this way, the program compiled by an engineer can be easily understood by other engineers, and the system maintenance and upgrade can be completed conveniently and quickly. This is very beneficial to reduce downtime and reduce the long-term operation cost of the enterprise.

6. Automatic fault diagnosis and automatic recovery.

The implementation of this function can reduce troubleshooting time, labor cost and personnel training cost.

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 great economic environment in the past 30 years. Our labor force is abundant and cheap, and we do not pay enough attention to energy and environmental protection. The economic development model is rough and extensive. In such an environment, the main requirement of enterprises for packaging equipment is to keep the price as low as possible on the premise of meeting the production requirements. This is because packaging enterprises can obtain enough manpower and resources to make up for the shortage of low automation level and low equipment; Moreover, most operators of packaging enterprises only consider the short-term operation, do not consider much about the long-term operation cost of the enterprise, and have no strict requirements for the six points mentioned above. This urges the packaging machinery manufacturers to reduce the product cost as much as possible and adopt low price parts in order to improve the price competitiveness of products. Although the price of such equipment is low, in the long-term use process of packaging enterprises, it will increase many operating costs, such as spare parts procurement, energy consumption, maintenance, system upgrading, personnel training and so on.

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. The cost of human resources in China is increasing year by year, and the evaluation of enterprise management will become more reasonable. The overall operating cost (TCO) of an enterprise will be considered as an important indicator. Therefore, packaging machinery manufacturers should see this trend and gradually design and produce automatic and intelligent packaging equipment with flexibility, high efficiency, environmental protection, energy saving and convenient maintenance. Only based on high-quality products can enterprises achieve good development and the overall level of China's packaging equipment be improved.
