Digital Transformation in Packaging Industry

Impact of Digital Twin and Industrial Revolution 4.0 on the Packaging Industry

Digital transformation in the packaging industry involves leveraging digital technologies and processes to enhance various aspects of packaging, from design and production to distribution and customer engagement. Here are some key areas where digital transformation is making an impact:

Smart Packaging Design:
Digital tools and software enable the creation of innovative packaging designs.
Virtual mock-ups and 3D modeling streamline the design and prototyping process.
Sustainability considerations, such as materials and recyclability, are integrated into designs.
Automation and Robotics:
Automated packaging lines and robotic systems improve production efficiency
Robots can handle tasks like sorting, labeling, and packaging with precision.
This reduces labor costs and enhances the consistency and speed of packaging operations.
IoT and Sensors:
Internet of Things (IoT) sensors monitor packaging conditions, such as temperature and humidity.
Real-time data collection helps ensure product quality and safety during transportation and storage.
Sensors can also track package location and provide valuable supply chain insights.
Factors currently disrupt the packaging industry
Changing and evolving consumer behavior with the rising e-commerce buying trends
Increased demand for customized and personalized packaging materials from enterprises for branding purposes
Increasing need for agile production with the rising trends of the Print-on-demand business model
Increasing demand for integrated technology solutions such as order management systems, online platforms, packaging design software, and others for business process digitalization
Need for cognitive technologies to break silos and establish effective and real-time data exchange
Increasing need for manufacturing and sourcing processes for sustainable packaging products
Our Solutions for Packaging Industry
Using a Digital Twin of the new machine, helps to reduce programming time, design effort and assembly time by a total of 50 percent
Saves commissioning time by 20-25%
Design phase shortened by 10%
The machine and all its components were designed in completely virtual environments, it was possible to use the digital twins to simulate machine and component behavior and test the interoperability of individual components. Collisions occurred only on the computer without causing the actual damage.
