Industry profile for the automation of packaging machines
(PresseBox) ( Bochum, )
The new industry profile shows the market shares to 2020 of the various types of controller among the packaging machine manufacturers themselves and the associated machine potential. It shows the trends in the ratio of centralized and decentralized control intelligence up to 2020 as well as the position of the suppliers of control technology among packaging machine manufacturers.

The new industry profile shows the market shares of the entire electronic drive technology for packaging machines to 2020. This applies to the use of servos, servo-similar converters, frequency converters (V/f), stepper motors, DC drives, linear drives and torque motors. The type of growth of each of these components is shown as well as the average number of axes per machine until 2020. Of course, the position of the suppliers of servo converters and servo motors is not missing either.

The use of robots is constantly increasing, even at packaging machines. The new industry profile deals with the market shares of the use of robots in packaging machines for 2018 in terms of presence on machines and among users as well as the types of robots. Even the complex point of how robot and machine control are connected is summed up in its various forms and market shares.

The new industry profile shows the acceptance of Industry 4.0 among packaging machine manufacturers for the year 2016 and the status of the realization of Industry 4.0 in eleven automation areas of packaging machines. This also includes a look beyond 2016 at future implementations. Clear definitions, clear, well-founded classifications bring an operational structure into the confusion of voices on Industry 4.0.

The new industry profile clarifies the market shares of the various machine types of packaging machines, be they series machines, special machines or plants, and what still applies and what does not apply to these distinctions.

The new industry profile is not limited to automation as it deals with key economic industry parameters in long-term trend analyses from 2008 to 2017. This concerns production and sales in the industry compared to machinery industry, global export markets and their changes, the industry's product segments and their average values in euros. Finally, the market position of packaging machines from Germany is discussed at EU level.

The new industry profile is a guideline for the sales force and for product development with regard to product adaptations to the requirements of the industry. It is based on Quest TechnoMarketing's trend analyses on automation in machinery industry. Knowledge of all these trends enables the automation manufacturer to tailor its offers much more precisely and convincingly to the needs of packaging machine manufacturers.
