#swop2019 | “components” Builds Core Competence for You

In the future, smart factories in the packaging industry will be able to operate on their own, meaning that various parts can “talk” to machines and thus raw materials, machinery, plants, transportation and sales can be efficiently integrated, so as to cope with growing customer demands and international competition. In addition, the demand for smarter new parts, automated machines and innovative packaging solutions is increasing in various end user areas such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, non-food consumer goods and industrial products among others.

In order to build core competitiveness for processing and packaging companies, Shanghai World of Packaging (swop) 2019 will once again organize "components", exhibition for processing and packaging parts, as a special zone. Several topics, relevant for the entire packaging industry will be presented offering comprehensive automation solutions.

Packaging Machinery Worldwide

Some 150 years ago the first packaging machine was invented. The jobs previously performed by vertical shafts, cam discs, sprocket wheels and cams back then, have long become the work of state-of-the-art high-tech components and robots. Thanks to sophisticated drive, control and automation technologies as well as machine vision modern systems today deliver top performance in addition to high flexibility and precision – a key requirement especially in the food industry that has to follow the trend towards greater choice, faster product changeovers and out-of-home consumption.

The winners of the Red Dot Award

This year, companies and designers from 59 countries entered more than 6,300 innovations in the Red Dot Award:  Product Design, a higher number than ever before. After inspiring and intensive discussions by the 39 jury members, they did not award a distinction until they had agreed on the good design quality of the product. As a result, a total of 69 entries – just 1.1% of all entries – received the top award in the competition, the Red Dot:  Best of the Best. The Red Dot, which stands for good design quality, was awarded 1,684 times, while 45 objects won an Honourable Mention, which is given to a particularly well-executed aspect of design work. All of the designs have one thing in common:  They represent the current status of product design and give insights into its future.

Self-heating Coffee Cans

The 42 Degrees Company worked with Monomer Tech (MT), plastic packaging manufacturer, part of M&A Packaging Group, to produce an inner activation device to heat the liquid in the cans. The system consists of a thermo-sealed capsule full of water, which comes into contact with a reagent and heats up the beverage once the capsule is activated.
