The future of packaging is defined by automation and robotics

Robotics and robotic process automation (RPA) play an important role in the development of industries. Its implementation allows companies significant savings, taking care of heavy, complicated and repetitive tasks more efficiently, accelerating production.

His contribution is emphasized more in the midst of the industry 4.0 era in which more capacities are involved with solutions that integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI).

In fact, research conducted by McKinsey between 2017 and 2018 reveals that companies that have integrated at least one AI capability into their business processes have grown by more than 50%, with nearly all companies applying AI reporting having achieved a certain level of value.

robotics in packaging

Specifically, in the packaging process, the new robotic mechanisms are regaining great importance for the packaging and transportation of products, as well as helping to keep the ingredients in good condition.

At present, sustainability and digital are prioritized, while trends such as e-commerce are gaining strength, representing new challenges for packaging in industries.

The Mckinsey study also reveals how the growth of online commerce is leading to a new demand for packaging, with very particular requirements that drive efficiency in the supply chain and that respond to sustainability demands.

Facing the transformation requires preparing with the implementation of robotic innovations, modern automated processes and new packaging designs, to obtain the best results.

EXPO PACK México 2022 is an event that will bring together 700 of the main packaging and processing suppliers from around the world.
