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. The 16,000 m2 headquarters will showcase the innovations that are transforming this industry, the latest technologies in action, sustainable solutions, innovative machinery and materials for more than 40 vertical markets.
This meeting will take place from June 14 to 17, presenting keynote speeches that will reveal the most relevant topics in the voice of the main actors and suppliers of the packaging and processing industry.
In addition, on June 16, 2022, Emmanuel Aparicio from the Organization for Machine Automation and Control (OMAC) will be presented in the panel entitled “Present and future of automation and robotics in packaging operations: promoting digital transformation”, which will take place at 4:00 p.m. in Hall A4 of Expo Santa Fe. Access is free with the EXPO PACK Mexico 2022 badge.
Registration for EXPO PACK Mexico is free of charge until May 6, 2022 and those interested may register through the website
