Packaging is the necessary conditions for products to enter the circulation area, and the main means to achieve packaging is the use of packaging machinery. With the development of the times, technological progress, packaging equipment in the field of packaging is playing an increasingly important role, its main role has the following:
(1) can greatly improve labor productivity
Mechanical packaging is much faster than manual packaging, such as candy packaging, hand pack sugar 1min can only pack a dozen pieces, and candy packaging machine up to hundreds or even thousands of pieces per minute, improve the efficiency of several times.
(2) can effectively guarantee the quality of packaging
Mechanical packaging according to the requirements of packaging items, according to the needs of the form, size, get the same specifications of the packaging, and manual packaging is not guaranteed. This is particularly important for export commodities, only mechanical packaging, in order to achieve the standardization of packaging, standardization, in line with the requirements of the packaging.
(3) can be achieved by manual packaging can not achieve the operation
Some packaging operations, such as vacuum packaging, inflatable packaging, body paste packaging, pressure filling, etc., are hand-packaged can not be achieved, can only be achieved with mechanical packaging.
(4) can reduce labor intensity and improve working conditions
Manual packaging of labor intensity is very large, such as manual packaging large volume, heavy weight of the product, both consumption of physical and unsafe; and small products, because of the higher frequency, action monotonous, easy to workers have occupational diseases.
(5) is conducive to the protection of workers' labor
For some serious health effects of products, such as dusty, toxic products, irritating, radioactive products, handmade packaging will inevitably endanger health, and mechanical packaging can be avoided, and can effectively protect the environment is not contaminated.
(6) can reduce the cost of packaging, saving storage costs
For loose products, such as cotton, tobacco, silk, linen, etc., using compressed packaging machine compression package, can greatly reduce the volume, thereby reducing the cost of packaging. At the same time as the volume is greatly reduced, saving storage capacity, reduce storage costs, is conducive to transport.
(7) can reliably ensure product hygiene
Some products, such as food, pharmaceutical packaging, according to the health law is not allowed to use manual packaging, because it will pollute the product, and mechanical packaging to avoid direct contact with food, medicine, to ensure the quality of health.
(8) can promote the development of related industries
Packaging machinery is a comprehensive science, it involves materials, technology, equipment, electronics, electrical appliances, automatic control and other disciplines, requiring the relevant disciplines synchronized, coordinated development, any subject problems will affect the overall packaging machinery performance. Therefore, the development of packaging machinery will effectively promote the progress of related disciplines. In addition, in order to meet the needs of high-speed packaging machinery packaging, the relevant front and rear processes are bound to adapt, but also to promote the simultaneous development of related processes.
