Packaging machinery moves towards system integration

integration technology is often applied in the manufacturing process of packaging machinery. Because the packaging industry covers a wide range of areas and there are many types of equipment, there are more or less some problems in the use of PLC interface docking, equipment and coding machine, equipment and industrial computer, information and equipment transmission mode, etc. of different manufacturers. This requires manufacturers to consider how to integrate communication and information in the future automatic control, and how to realize it with simple hardware and software

with the improvement of people's living standards, the requirements for packaging are becoming higher and higher. After more than 20 years of development, China's packaging machinery has become one of the top ten industries in the machinery industry, providing an effective guarantee for the rapid development of China's packaging industry. Some domestic packaging machinery has filled the domestic gap, and some products are exported

however, it should be recognized that the overall level of China's packaging machinery industry is still at a low stage. At present, the export volume of domestic packaging machinery in China is less than 5% of the total output value, but the import volume is roughly equivalent to the total output value, which is far from developed countries. Some high-content packaging complete sets of equipment still rely on foreign imports to meet domestic demand. This excessive dependence on foreign products has seriously restricted the sustainable and stable development of China's packaging industry. The current industry competition is mainly reflected in the following aspects:

① R & D capacity: there are many domestic packaging industry enterprises, but their own R & D capacity is weak, and the investment is insufficient. Whoever has strong R & D ability and constantly produces new products in the industry can occupy the market

② manufacturing capacity: specialized production has become a trend. International packaging machinery manufacturers attach great importance to the universal ability of packaging machinery and the whole packaging system, which requires manufacturers to adjust their production capacity in time and strengthen professional and systematic production capacity

③ marketing ability: the packaging industry covers a wide range, which requires manufacturers to judge how to segment the industry and how to stand out in a certain industry

in the manufacturing process of packaging machinery, it is often applied to control all experimental processes with high stability. Because the packaging industry covers a wide range of areas and there are many types of equipment, there are more or less some problems in the use of PLC interface docking, equipment and coding machine, small linear error of equipment and industrial control computer, transmission mode between information and equipment, etc. of different manufacturers, which requires manufacturers to consider communication and information in automatic control in the future. 4 How to integrate the measurement process and how to realize it with simple hardware and software. The focus of attention is: what is the platform of automation manufacturers, and what standards different products use to connect

when it comes to the manufacturing process of packaging machinery, we have to mention MES (Manufacturing Execution System). The initial idea of MES is very good, which can provide managers with the implementation and tracking of plans and the current status of all resources and equipment. In recent years, the application of MES seems to have entered a bottleneck period, and the current bottleneck is how to implement and achieve the best state. When Xiamen yangxingxing but poor thermal stability mechanical equipment Co., Ltd. implements the tobacco commercial project, customers apply MES, but in the implementation process, they will encounter various problems, such as how to optimize the manufacturing process of the whole workshop, whether the optimized process is reasonable, whether the production process of the product can be traced according to the barcode, the wrong links and how to make mistakes; When the same production line needs to produce nearly 100 different types of cigarettes in the tobacco sorting process, how to automatically check the errors in the production process

most industrial equipment is controlled by automation (mainly PLC), and there are more than a dozen mainstream brands of PLC on the market. In the manufacturing process of tobacco sorting and packaging equipment, Xiamen Yangxing Xingye mechanical equipment Co., Ltd., the main equipment PLC adopts Siemens s and s. In contrast, system integration technology is much more complex than industrial control automation technology. System integration technology is to integrate various separated equipment (or equipment of multiple manufacturers), functions and information into an interrelated, unified and coordinated system through structured generic cabling system and computer network technology, so as to fully share resources and realize centralized, efficient and convenient management. The key of system integration is to solve the problems of interconnection and interoperability between systems. It is a multi vendor, multi protocol and application-oriented architecture. This requires solving all integration oriented problems related to subsystems, organization management and staffing, such as interfaces, protocols, system platforms, application software between various equipment and subsystems, such as how to connect the PLC interface of equipment from different manufacturers, and how to connect the docking interface between sorting and packaging equipment and coding equipment

if the industrial equipment control system adopts the same brand of PLC, it can ensure that the interface, protocol and data exchange between the main equipment and each sub equipment are unimpeded, and ensure that there are no problems such as data loss and signal interference in the production process, so as to realize the high efficiency and accuracy of the production process. If different PLC brands are adopted, there is a lack of openness. Different manufacturers have different standards and platforms, which increases the difficulty of docking between different PLCs

the higher the requirements of system integration, the higher the requirements of industrial automation. The system integrator will face further challenges in the future: how to combine all the equipment, and the whole system has low cost, high efficiency, stable performance, scalability and maintainability. In addition, it also involves how to apply automatic recognition technology, speech recognition technology and RFID technology to the packaging manufacturing industry in the future, and how to make good use of these technologies. IOT is a popular topic in China at present. In the future, the packaging manufacturing industry will introduce more IOT technology, which requires that the standards of different products of different manufacturers tend to be consistent, so as to achieve centralized, efficient and convenient management
