As society progresses, the demands, rates and volumes of production grow within a long list of industrial sectors. This has caused that today we are immersed in the implementation of the so-called Industry 4.0, which consists of the automation of all kinds of processes through collaborative robotics, multi-sector engineering and new technologies, with a view to ensuring that these processes industrial and, in this case, packaging, are more efficient, productive, economic and safe for companies.
From CMB, as experts in automatic shrink wrap machines and special machinery to optimize packaging lines, with special attention to the wood and furniture sector, we would like to analyze the main advantages of automating a packaging line with some of our equipment.
First, it should be noted that there are some very clear points, such as the considerable increase in productivity; an improvement in energy efficiency; greater security both of the facilities and for the operators and workers of the company. All this, together with a significant reduction in the cost of less qualified personnel, drastically reducing the errors that may be committed by human failure, especially in all those more repetitive and monotonous tasks.
In essence, automating a packaging line allows you to be able to produce more, cheaper, and in less time. Delivery deadlines are much easier, being able to better plan and coordinate the entire packaging line. In the short or medium term, this translates into an increase in both the competitiveness and profitability of the line and the company.
