Safe Packaging Automation – Flexible Solutions from PILZ

MC PILZ Safe Packaging Automation 1 400

March 4, 2022


Efficient packaging processes require a high level of automation in the packaging industry. At the same time, the Machinery Directive lays down essential functional safety requirements for packaging automation. Particularly with packaging automation in primary packaging, a so-called critical infrastructure, there are very high requirements for the robustness of the products used and protection against tampering. The packaging lines are subjected to a wide range of cleaning processes and strict quality inspections. The traceability of manufacturing processes is just as important as the access and authorization management of individual employees and data protection.

Our packaging automation solutions – in each phase

We’ll WRAP it up together

We support manufacturers and operators of packaging machines in the implementation of their packaging automation. As a renowned and reliable supplier of machinery safety services, we are there for both domestic and international companies.

Rely on future-proof, intelligent technologies and solutions for safety and security and benefit from the comprehensive services portfolio, ranging from risk assessment to full engineering. Based on more than 30 years of industry experience, we offer practical answers to both general and industry-specific questions regarding safety.

Our services portfolio identifies your requirements and assesses the specific risks prevailing locally on the machine. We accompany the entire engineering-process, undertake CE marking in accordance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and so create international legal certainty for your packaging plant and your staff.

Optimize overall equipment effectiveness through complete automation solutions

A key indicator for high productivity and efficiency in packaging technology is overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). It determines the added value of a packaging line and can quickly demonstrate a plant’s productivity at a glance. Safe automation solutions are the basis for optimized overall equipment effectiveness. So not only does machinery safety provide protection against avoidable accidents, but it also contributes towards an economical, efficient packaging process (fewer downtimes, inclusion of capacity planning (predictive maintenance)).

Efficiency can also be improved with the new opportunities of Industrie 4.0. Guaranteeing safety for human and machine is a key issue in reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO). An individual safety concept for your packaging machines is critical for optimized operation. Industrial security – in particular the protection of sensitive end customer data in networked plants – plays an increasingly important role.
