Pneumatics enhances safety in packaging applications

The widespread use of pneumatics technology for packaging machines, used to drive motion and actuate machine sequences, has garnered more interest by machine designers and end users as to how pneumatics can improve safety and safe operating functionality in their equipment. This, according to a paper by Erl Campbell, Food and Beverage Key Account Manager, Aventics. He says that the increased interest is, in part, due to the globalisation of the packaging machine marketplace. “Many major packaging OEMs are focused on building machines that can be sold into multiple markets and regions with minimal modifications.” He adds that, to do so, the machines need to satisfy safety regulations and that machine builders and end users are also discovering that use of pneumatics that integrates safety technology can enhance their systems’ reliability and extend their operational life.
