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.

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.
