Nichrome: Making a mark in the ever-changing packaging world
The packaging sector is at a turning point in its history. Today, more than ever, companies need high performance machinery that meets quality and productivity requirements.
Environmental concerns are forcing the packaging industry to reinvent itself, especially through the use of eco-friendly materials that are less energy-intensive, more easily recycled.While plastic is widely used thanks to its many advantages especially its low weight per unit, glass and metal containers are making a comeback in certain categories, driven by environmental concerns. Even the flexible packaging industry is looking for biodegradable materials.
So packaging is continuously evolving. Technological innovations and growing automation have transformed the industry. Some of the most noticeable developments include:
Connectivity: The various functions involved in packaging are integrated thanks to automation. Users get a clearer picture of the various sub-processes and plant conditions which helps to improve maintenance and optimise packaging processes.
Digital engineering: Most processes are now digitised; manual operations have been replaced by automated speed and accuracy. Errors in the process can also be identified and rectified sooner with digital engineering.
Space saving: The packaging machinery industry is adopting modular machine configuration and re-designing equipment to save space and reduce machine footprint.
Simplicity: The ability of companies to integrate new machines or lines easily into existing systems is essential for them to adapt to the changing technology.The growing need to simplify diagnostics and maintenance is giving birth to more web-based service tools and innovative machine concepts.
