Global packaging machinery has entered a "new stage"

In recent years, the demand for packaging machinery in various industries in China has been increasing year by year. Although there are many domestic packaging industries, the nearly 100 types of packaging machinery in China are far from meeting the needs of many industries. Therefore, domestic packaging machinery should actively seek a better development path from the needs of relevant industries, and at the same time, improving the applicability of packaging machinery is a good response.

At the same time, the global packaging machinery has also entered a new stage.

According to the prediction of the U.S. Census Bureau, the United States will enter an aging society by 2025. The U.S. packaging industry has fully considered the potential needs of elderly consumers for packaging products and started to develop packaging that can adapt to the characteristics of the aging society in the future, such as zipper type closure, metal top cover and double finger pull ring that are easy to open. The packaging industry is committed to providing consumers with more convenient packaging.

In fact, packaging machinery is still inadequate.

In recent years, there is still a big gap between China and the advanced level of foreign countries, which needs to be improved urgently. When the investment for research and development accounts for 1% of the enterprise's sales, it is difficult for the enterprise to survive. When it accounts for 2%, it can barely survive. When it accounts for 5%, it can be competitive. However, the average investment for research and development of food packaging equipment enterprises in China is less than 1%.

According to statistics, the national R & D funds only account for 0.3% ~ 0.5% of the sales revenue of enterprises, and the R & D personnel only account for 3.4% ~ 4% of the employees. The experimental conditions of research institutes and colleges and universities are backward. Compared with the level of foreign scientific research investment, China's scientific research investment is seriously insufficient, which leads to the low degree of automation of China's food equipment industry and poor market satisfaction; More single machine products and less complete sets of equipment; More main engines and less auxiliary machines; There are many products with low technology content and few products with high technology, high added value and high productivity; More primary processing equipment and less deep processing equipment; There are many general models and few models with special requirements and special materials. Compared with similar products abroad, the product performance is low in production capacity and high in energy consumption. The average energy consumption is 4-6 times that of developed countries. In particular, the performance gap of large-scale complete sets of equipment is even greater. The production capacity of domestic relatively advanced models is about 1 / 2 of the advanced level of foreign countries, while the overall technical level of food equipment in China lags behind that of developed countries by about 20 years.

In fact, packaging is not in a hurry. Behind the rapid development of China's packaging industry, a large number of complete sets of high-tech equipment still rely on imports, and a large amount of foreign exchange is used to import complete sets of high-end equipment every year. For example, plastic film biaxial stretching equipment, a production line of nearly 100 million yuan, was introduced in the 1970s. So far, 110 such production lines have been imported in China. In addition, almost all the aseptic packaging boxes and filling equipment widely used in the dairy industry are provided by a foreign company. The problems that machinery needs to solve are not unique to China.
