New trends in packaging machines
Throughout the development of domestic packaging machines, after several generations of efforts, from the beginning of mechanical control to single-chip microcomputer to today’s PLC industrial control, they have all developed step by step. The development direction of packaging machines is determined by market demand. Like the changes in the natural environment in nature, suitable ones will be automatically selected for further development.
First, globalization. First of all, competition in the global market is constantly intensifying. The packaging machine industry market survey analysis report shows that from the packaging machinery manufacturing industry, many domestic and foreign companies are already facing bankruptcy under the pressure of market competition due to insufficient competitiveness. Or they have closed down, including small and medium-sized enterprises and some well-known enterprises. Those companies that are still barely surviving in the domestic market have to consider expanding into new markets; secondly, the rapid development of computer network technology has promoted cooperation between competing companies. Such cooperation will bring new hope to both parties. It is built on the basis of competition, and will develop to further increase international market competition. The interaction between cooperation and competition has become the driving force for the development of global manufacturing. Networking is the primary prerequisite for global manufacturing technology. Only the integration of networked communication technology can ensure the smooth development of manufacturing globalization.
Second, networking. The success of network technology has solved many constraints in time and space in packaging machinery manufacturing. The popularization of computer networks will bring revolutionary changes to the production and sales of enterprises. From product design, parts procurement and manufacturing, and market analysis, it is easier to operate and manage based on network technology, and can be operated and controlled in remote locations. In addition, the rapid development of network information technology is bound to bring new opportunities and challenges to the machinery manufacturing industry, and promote the development of enterprises in the direction of competition and cooperation.
Third, virtualization. The application of virtual technology in product production is mainly embodied in the two functions of inspection and simulation. First, the processability, processing method, and rationality of design ideas can be tested, which can more accurately guarantee product quality and production costs. ,Production cycle. In addition, the product can be modeled and simulated, and each process of product manufacturing can be simulated through computer software and the network to avoid uncontrollable problems in actual operation.
Fourth, automation. The current automation research is mainly embodied in the integration technology and system technology in the manufacturing system, man-machine integrated manufacturing system, manufacturing cell technology, manufacturing process planning and scheduling, flexible manufacturing technology and manufacturing environment adapted to the current production mode. The development trend of packaging machinery manufacturing automation technology is manufacturing globalization, packaging machinery manufacturing agility, packaging machinery manufacturing networking, packaging machinery manufacturing virtualization, packaging machinery manufacturing intelligence and manufacturing green.
Fifth, greening. Green manufacturing produces green products through green production processes, green design, green materials, green equipment, green technology, green packaging, and green management. After the products are used, they are recycled and reused through green treatment. Adopting green manufacturing can minimize the negative impact of manufacturing on the environment, and at the same time maximize the utilization efficiency of raw materials and energy.
