China’s food packaging machinery into an international development
muffin cup machine With modern consumer trends and changes in consumer tastes increase in life increasingly seek food taste rich, which caused food production tends more variety, small batch development, in turn, causes various types of food machinery on the market popular .
Over the past decade, the international packaging industry attaches great importance to improve general ability and versatility integration of packaging machinery and packaging systems throughout to provide timely and flexible means of production for the strain of rapid diversification of product marketing. At the same time based on reasonable simplified process for packaging and packaging advantages of a real need to continue to explore, significantly speeding up the pace of technological innovation itself. Especially with the simultaneous development of modern automatic machine echoes gradually clear. To establish a more diverse, universal, multi-functional integrated packaging machinery new system, we must first focus on solving the combination and mechatronics big problem, no doubt this is an important future direction of development.
Gap between China and world powers
1. Complete product variety and less quantity
Most of the domestic production of single-based, and mostly supporting the production abroad, very few stand-alone sales. On the one hand variety of domestic equipment can not meet the needs of domestic food and packaging companies, on the other hand, stand-alone machine factory production and sales profits, can not get high efficiency equipment sales.
2. The low level of technology
Mainly in product reliability is poor, slow technology updates, new technologies, new processes, new materials, applications less. China’s food and packaging machinery more with a single, small packages, more general models to meet the special requirements, special materials, equipment less. More low-tech products, high-tech value-added, high productivity and less product; intelligent device is still in the development stage.
3. poor product quality
Food and packaging machinery product quality gap between our country mainly in the stability and reliability is poor, backward shape, the appearance of rough, basic parts and accessories short life, trouble-free operation time is short, overhaul cycle is short, and most products have not yet developed reliability standards.
4. The lack of ability to develop
China’s food and packaging machinery mainly imitation, mapping, localization improved a little, not to mention research and development. Our development methods are backward, and now a little better enterprises to develop a “rejection Plate Project”, but the real use of CAD is also very little. Lack of innovation in product development, the difficulty level. Backward means of production, most still use the old common processing equipment. Only a small number of new product development, and long development cycles. In business management, production and processing often heavy, light research and development, innovation is not enough, you can not keep up with market demand for timely delivery of products.
Future needs of food packaging machinery
With the accelerated pace of daily work, nutritious health food, environmental awareness, the future of the food and its packaging is also bound to put forward many new requirements. This includes local conditions to develop the vacuum packaging, filling the vacuum packaging and aseptic packaging and other new technologies, new products, and make the frozen package combination. Focus on the present and future, it was confirmed that the following three major types of packaging machines but excellent models for packaging food sales, and be worthy call has a long history and full of vitality Dominant models that stand-up pouches ( box) forming, filling and sealing machines, horizontal bags (box) forming, filling and sealing machines, horizontal seams binding machine.
According to the group to analyze the technical concept, more commonality and similarity between these three, unified development helps the other and each with a special difference to the choice of local conditions. After a comprehensive comparison, out of its main features are as follows:
Wrapper object – the three models fitted almost everything (except usually contain gas-liquid material), only the third limitation.
Packaging materials – are based composite film reel, the second case may be putting some straw, and the third may be putting care of ribs and other accessories.
Packaging – second pattern more, such as triangular envelope, four sides sealing bag, double bag, standing bag, brick boxes, roof-shaped boxes; the first Habitat Secondly, the third less than normal, usually in pincushion bags mainly, and some can be made of tubular bag, four sides sealing bags. Package dimensions – a first bag minimum width of 10 mm, bag length can be adjusted continuously within a limited range; the latter two bag length and bag width can be infinitely adjusted within a limited range, where a third of the bag length can be up to half a meter or more.
Seal type – the second new issue to many, such as setting the upper flat sealing torn mouth or tear line, a combination of letters plus inline boxes, placed in different parts of the screw cap closure, etc; the other two models seem monotonous.
Transmit motion – both continuous motion, the stepping motion can be achieved. Structural Combination – modular junction to fully reflect, in particular, the second horizontal layout easier to configure the functional blocks (such as vacuum, nitrogen filling), together with a high degree of mechanical and electrical integration, the diversity, versatility, multi-functional integrated It has greatly increased, forming a series of products.
Development Strategy of China’s food and packaging machinery industry
1. The scale, the Group of
Concentrate production capacity of enterprises continue to move large-scale development of the Group, in pursuit of economies of scale. SMEs in the current financial, technical strength is not enough strong situation, not blindly imported production lines, can be converted to large-scale enterprises to provide mechanical spare parts production model.
2. open up a new situation in exports
China’s food and packaging machinery technology affordable, cheap, very suitable for economic conditions in developing countries and regions, the future prospects for exports to these countries and regions of the vast, some of the equipment but also to the developed countries’ exports.
3. To improve the technological content of products
No good technology as a business development backing, is unlikely to go long. Mechanical and electrical integration, intelligence, the development of information technology products, the introduction of new technology, accelerate the pace of progress of the ISO9000 certification. To further enhance the technical level of equipment, stability, and reliability. Courage to face reality, positive changes in this state, improve product development capabilities, form their own ability to innovate in order to catch up.
4. Strengthen new product development and innovation
China’s food packaging machinery are mostly developed on the basis of drawing on imported equipment of foreign big gap or blank and should actively introduce advanced technology, digestion and absorption, to fully grasp the gradually figured out. To have some basis but with similar foreign products have a certain gap between products taken learn ways to strengthen research related to key technologies, core technologies, and encourage the development of innovation.
5. Develop strong demand for food packaging machinery
With the expansion of domestic demand, packaged foods, and increased demand for exports, food packaging machine peep from the price trend of market opportunities.
From years of development experience summary, formerly China’s food machinery industry knowledge simple manufacturing process, not many of their products, but were a repetitive manufacturing, in this state, to move closer to the high end of the industry sector is unrealistic. Therefore, we must make the necessary changes in the products, should strive to play their own advantages, to create a home, there are technical content of products, and it is doing fine, bigger, stronger, painstaking, relying this spirit, in order to develop the business, thereby gradually based on the industry high-end area.
