The Food Industry Relies On Automated Packaging Machinery


The food industry is being automated. It’s not a secret, and it’s happening faster than we can imagine.

This doesn’t mean that robots are taking over even though those designed to do specific jobs in the packaging industry are playing a greater role. But there is no argument that automation is improving many of the elements of food industry packaging jobs.

For example, quality control inspection is rising to new heights and levels of dependency with automation. Take carton packaging: Back in the day, human employees had to remove carton from the line and inspect them before putting them back into the system. Now, this function can be totally automated and completed without any interruption. Other areas of food industry production that also benefit greatly from automation of packaging machinery include all forms of packing (primary, secondary and tertiary), depalletizing, and unpacking.

The Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI), now called the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, is a leading trade association and global resource for the processing and packaging industry.

According to the report, most of the required improvements can be achieved by investing in up-to-date automated food packaging machinery and equipment. Since close to 50 percent of the companies that participated in the study stated they were likely to increase spending on packaging equipment in the next two years, automation is going to increase rapidly. Certainly, the desire to produce more food in less time is part of the motivation. The other is to reduce wastage of food and in this way increase food security.

There are multiple reasons why the food industry needs to upgrade to automated packaging machinery. If you need help contact the professionals at TEFUDE Packaging Machinery for advice. We will do all we can to help you make the right decisions.
