at Automation Fair 2013

The food and beverage industries are as diverse as the global consumer base they serve. There is a continuous demand for a greater variety of packaged products to satisfy a wide range of demographics. At the same time, regulations have gotten tighter and operations have become more complex and expensive. Faced with these challenges, producers still need to improve the bottom line and grow.

Additionally, the industries no longer have the luxury to produce a small number of products on dedicated lines. They must produce a variety of products on the same equipment. Further, heightened emphasis on sustainability and corporate responsibility drive reductions in WAGES expenses. All of these concerns require flexible, tightly integrated manufacturing systems.
