The decision concerning the choice of packaging machine is taken after answering the following questions: 1. Kind of product – a powder, liquid, solid, etc., its key features – free-flowing, sticky, dusty, not dusty, hygroscopic, etc. Robotics expert has similar goals. 2. Product weight and packaging, 3. Size and shape of the package (within prescribed tolerances), 4. The size of the neck of the container 5. Stability of packaging 6.
The materials used for packaging components, slip on line, a way to move along the line, etc. 7. The need for additional equipment; 8. Additional requirements – for example, attachment sheets with instructions or advertising, securing spoons, straws, etc. 9. Method of installation – the tray and shrink wrap, a box made of corrugated cardboard or other options; 10.Osobye standards of cleanliness and sterility; 11.Opasnost for operators; 12. Fragility packaging – for example, glass; 13.Ogneopasnost product; 14. Vzryvoopanost.
Important position is the installation of equipment. Necessary to provide all communications relating to the supply of electricity, water, air, vacuum and steam and with the elimination of waste. In the calculations take into account the maximum allowable amount static and dynamic loads on the floor, to develop measures to ensure the supply of equipment in the installation area (up-and-transport mechanisms, pathways, etc.), as well as the availability of specialists for the installation. When choice of machines should be remembered that good packaging lines operate with minimal vibration and minimal noise. Vibration indicates imbalance of nodes or the presence of the forces acting asymmetrically, that leads to depreciation of equipment. The main frame of the machine must be heavy enough and should not deform under the influence of working mechanical loads. To operate the production lines require reliable sources of electricity, water, compressed air, vacuum, water and drainage system. In addition to these types of security, very important factor is maintenance. Many of today's production lines are equipped with computer control systems and analysis that not only indicate the cause and location, but also issued recommendations to address the refusal. Timely delivery of packaging materials and components on the line, the removal of excess materials and finished products, as well as preventive maintenance of equipment also apply to maintenance, increase operational efficiencies. Automated work stations for packing products based on the coherence of all production operations. Any, even minor changes such as the use of another nail-closing, may cause disruption of production operations. Currently, the market for packaging machinery offers a variety of machines able to satisfy all the demands of production. When selecting packaging equipment necessary to take into account the large number of factors need to consider in detail whether the existing baseline data and opportunities for enterprise and technical and economic characteristics of the proposed equipment, as well as the status and trends market products that will be poured on the packaging equipment being purchased.
