Eight functions of packaging machinery and equipment


Packaging is a necessary condition for products to enter the market. To achieve product packaging, the main way is to use packaging machinery. With the development and advancement of packaging technology in recent years, packaging machinery is playing an increasingly important role in the packaging field.

The main functions of packaging machinery are as follows:

1. The use of packaging machinery can greatly improve labor productivity. Mechanical packaging is much faster than manual packaging. For example, candy packaging can only pack a dozen candies in 1 minute, while candy packaging machines can pack hundreds or even thousands of candies per minute, increasing the efficiency dozens of times.

2. The use of packaging machinery can effectively ensure the packaging quality. According to the requirements of packaged products , mechanical packaging can obtain the same specifications of packaging according to the required shape and size, which is especially important for export commodities. Only mechanical packaging can standardize packaging and meet the requirements of collective packaging.

3. The use of packaging machinery can achieve operations that cannot be done by manual packaging. Certain packaging operations, such as vacuum packaging, pneumatic packaging, body packaging, isostatic filling, etc., are not possible for manual packaging and can only be achieved by mechanical packaging.

4. The use of packaging machinery can reduce labor intensity and improve working conditions. Manual packaging is labor-intensive. For example, manual packaging of large and heavy products is labor-intensive and unsafe. For light and small products, workers are prone to occupational diseases due to high frequency and monotonous movements.

5. The use of packaging machinery is conducive to the labor protection of workers. For some products that seriously affect your health, such as dust and harmful products, irritating and radioactive products, the use of manual packaging will inevitably endanger your health, while mechanical packaging can avoid this situation and effectively protect the environment from pollution .

6. The use of packaging machinery can reduce packaging costs and save transportation costs. For loose products, such as cotton, tobacco, silk, etc., compression packaging using a compression packaging machine can greatly reduce the volume and thus reduce packaging costs. At the same time, because the volume is greatly reduced, the storage capacity is saved, the storage cost is reduced, and the transportation is convenient.

7. The use of packaging machinery can reliably ensure product hygiene. According to the Sanitation Law, some products, such as food and medicine packaging, are not allowed to be packed by hand because they can contaminate the product, and mechanical packaging avoids direct contact with food and medicine, thus ensuring hygienic quality.

8. The use of packaging machinery can promote the development of related industries. Packaging machinery is a comprehensive science, involving materials, technology, equipment, electronics, electrical appliances, automatic control and other disciplines, requiring the simultaneous and coordinated development of all related disciplines. Problems in any discipline will affect the entire packaging machinery performance.

Therefore, the development of packaging machinery will effectively promote the development of related disciplines.
