Why Are Robots Used for Packaging Applications?

Packaging is one of the most reputable robotic applications in food production. The unchanging nature of products in the packaging step makes it easier to automate these tasks compared to prior tasks in the production line.

Packaging challenges facing manufacturers today call for multifaceted solutions. Increasingly manufacturing tasks in FMCG (fast-moving consumer goods) are driven by customer demands for aspects such as faster dispatch times and more customization.

Robotic technology has evolved to meet these demands with more and more complex uses. When they were first built, mechanical robots were mainly used for more straightforward errands like lifting massive loads.

Today, they can be used as packaging robots for palletizing, de-panning, de-nesting, and warehousing. But, first, let’s look at why robots are used for packaging applications as well as the packaging tasks they are expected to implement.

A 12-year-old boy from London has made about £290,000 during the school holidays, after creating a series of pixelated artworks called Weird Whales and selling non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

With NFTs, artwork can be “tokenised” to create a digital certificate of ownership that can be bought and sold.

They do not generally give the buyer the actual artwork or its copyright.

Benyamin Ahmed is keeping his earnings in the form of Ethereum – the crypto-currency in which they were sold.

This means they could go up or down in value and there is no back-up from the authorities if the digital wallet in which he is holding them is hacked or compromised.
