Packaging was born to deliver goods from producer to consumer. However, nowadays packaging functions go far beyond containing, protecting and preserving.
The current customer-centric arena, assisted by multiple technological innovations, has introduced communication, promotion and differentiation within its core functionalities.
These new requirements, together with cost-efficiency, light solutions, demand and the ever-present sustainability, have made us, the suppliers, adapt and evolve together with our customers’ new needs.
Nevertheless, our core commitment to the packaging industry has remained unchanged.
Thermo-forming, Filling, Sealing, Shrink Wrapping, Case Erecting, Conveying, Case packing, Palletising. These are some of the parts of your process.
These are our solutions for them, and the benefits for you:
We support you in every step of your process. We support you worldwide. We support you with our local packaging experts. They’ll be glad to discuss your application with you

“As most factories operate on a 24/7 basis, with production sites arranged in a continuous flow, from primary material integration, to processing, and finally, packaging, any component failure will generate a stop in production thereby costing the factory time and money.
The OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) can be substantially improved by applying digital predictive maintenance solutions, training operators, and maximising product reliability.”

The technical challenge of sustainable packaging
By Jorge Salgado, Food & Packaging Industry Manager, SMC Spain
AUGUST 2021 The trend is clear, and there is no going back. Consumer environmental and sustainability concerns, in terms of plastic pollution and the rise of Circular Economy principles consciousness compel the packaging industry towards a more ethical packaging. This means using material easier to recycle like monolayer plastic or paper and reducing the quantity of material used. Moving towards sustainable packaging brings technical challenges to packaging machines. Furthermore, ensuring higher sustainability goes through higher efficiency. How? Keep on reading.

JUNE 2021 Between 2020 and 2027, the food processing market is expected to grow with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.04% according to Verified Market Search. The industry will have to increase its productivity while simultaneously dealing with a lack of workers and cost pressure. As most automation companies are focused on machine builders, SMC is differentiating itself by being present with the food manufacturers on their factory floor in order to identify the food industry’s most pressing challenges and help to overcome them. In order to improve their productivity, factories must reduce downtime, implement more automation and improve energy efficiency, machine safety and hygiene.
