Food and packaging machinery has been an industry for 20 years and is a new industry compared to the food industry. These 20 years are the world's fastest technology development period. New technologies have been continuously applied in the industry, while the domestic industry has a weak foundation and insufficient technical and scientific research capabilities. Its development is relatively lagging, which has dragged the food and packaging industry to some extent Hind legs. Although the overall development is faster, the food and packaging industry is developing faster. At the end of 2005, the total output value of the food and packaging machinery industry was about 62 billion yuan, while the domestic market demand reached 85 billion yuan. By 2010, the total output value of the domestic industry will reach 130 billion yuan (current price), and the market demand may reach 200 billion yuan. The space of this market will be filled by foreign equipment. The goal of the "Eleventh Five-Year Plan" is to reduce this space, to catch up with the world's advanced level for the food industry, and to provide advanced technology and equipment for the major packaging countries to move towards a powerful packaging country, so that imported equipment can only make up for the domestic market Role. This requires that the annual development rate of domestic food and packaging machinery exceeds 18%, and the output value rate of new products reaches 25%.
The development of packaging and food machinery in the world is based on the requirements of major customers, and promotes the development of related machinery. The requirements of major customers are mainly reflected in the following aspects:
First, the higher the production efficiency, the better. This can reduce the cost of the product and meet the delivery time. High-speed packaging machines require related connections with the previous process, without the need for handling links, including control connections. The entire production line must be started in reverse order and shut down in sequence according to the production and packaging process. For example, the cold filling production line automatically goes from plastic raw materials to beverage filling and large packaging palletizing in a closed workshop.
Second, it can adapt to the changes of products. Packaging machinery must have high flexibility and flexibility, and the production line allows the size of the packaging to be changed within a certain size range. Because the product's life cycle is much shorter than the equipment's service life, changing products and packaging will not replace expensive packaging production lines.
Thirty-three is to quickly remove common equipment failures. The solution is entered into the computer in advance, and when the equipment has a common failure, it can diagnose itself, and remote diagnosis and troubleshooting can be implemented.
The fourth is to require automatic identification. On the one hand, the thickness, hardness, and rebound force of the packaging material can be automatically recognized, and the robot can be adjusted by the feedback to the manipulator through the computer to ensure that it does not rebound. On the other hand, different products, such as chocolates or snacks of different shapes, are packed in the same box, and the arrangement is regular. The product delivered by the production line is disordered. It can be scanned with a probe to determine the position of different shapes of materials, and then fed back to different robots. It will accurately and accurately place the items in the tray in the correct position and direction. Manually operated vision and finger fatigue.
Fifth, environmental pollution can be minimized. Reducing noise and dust pollution, and minimizing waste, is especially important in food processing. During the processing of food ingredients, not only the main products such as corn processing products are harvested. In addition to corn starch, there are corn oil, salad oil, and artificial. The entire production process of butter, dextrose, zein and feed, and sewage treatment are all automated. No waste, no pollution, the value of other products has greatly exceeded the value of corn starch.
