Implementation of robotics

During the forecast period, industrial robots will be on the verge of revolutionizing the manufacturing processes. The use of robotics is a faster, smarter, and less expensive process in industries. Industrial robots can carry out tasks that are repetitive, and involve dangerous processes such as welding and materials handling. An increase in the implementation of robots will reduce labor costs and enhance speed and accuracy.

According to Sharan Raj, a lead analyst at Technavio for warehouse and storage research, “Robots are taking on human capabilities such as sensing, memory, object recognition, and trainability. As a result, they are suitable for the cartoning equipment sector, which includes tasks such as picking and packaging, inspecting products, and assembling minute electronics.”

Rising demand for innovative, lightweight, and compact equipment

The advent of lightweight and compact cartoning equipment is gaining popularity among the end-users. Owing to the lightweight of a machinery and tool-less changeover concept it becomes possible for one operator to change machines. Bosch Packaging Technology provides smart changeover concepts due to its lightweight machines. Lightweight machines are faster than the traditional heavy machines. They also occupy less space and generate better results, due to which fully automatic and innovative equipment will replace traditional heavyweight and semi-automatic machinery.

Increase in demand for flexible cartoning equipment

Cartoning equipment occupies a lot of space. Owing to the volatile packaging demands, end-users are now looking for equipment that can carry out various cartoning processes. The CFM carton packing machine from Viking Masek is a carton erector that can create different carton shapes. It can perform in a single, double, or even triple head operation. It can handle a carton size from minimum 40 mm × 50 mm × 20mm to a maximum of 400 mm × 600 mm × 400 mm.

“Packagers are increasingly demanding more innovative and flexible equipment for cartooning, as it provides more efficiency with fewer machines. The food industry requires flexible cartoning equipment that can carton all the types of food products at an efficient pace without any damage. With the increase in the number and variety of food products, the demand for cartoning equipment is expected to grow during the forecast period,” says Sharan.
