Automated Vacuum Packaging Machines Vs Labor: What Happens to the Work Force?

Posted by AMAC

There are so many articles today about robots taking over. From self-driving cars to robots delivering packages, we are entering into a new form of labor.  The good news from technology – automation will not replace people; however, it will improve the skills workers need to keep up with the pace of change. For example, new demands in the skill sets of food processing workers will require a higher level of training to meet the machinery production capabilities. No matter the type of product or the way it is packaged, automation has found its way into the process of the food industry. Plant floor automation such as automated vacuum packaging machines will be good for the food processing industry – keeping costs down and food quality up. The same can be said for most industries.

Take a look at a few new pieces of automated equipment below. These new machines have never been available in the U.S. before, but can help transform your assembly line.


AIV-2000 is a revolutionary automatic in-line vacuum packaging system.  It combines the function of in-line vacuum wrapper forming, auto-loading, vacuum processing and sealing.  The product will be handled completely automatically throughout the system.  No more manual opening and stuffing the bags, placing the bagged product into a chamber, taking the product out of the chamber, etc.  No human hands, period!  Not only eliminating the labor, the running cost is further reduced substantially by using a roll of film compared to buying the pre-made, size specific bags.

The machine is made up of two rotary stations.  At the first rotary, suction sups pick up bags from a stack, open the bag and place it under the product shoot. The product comes to the edge of a conveyor and drop into the shoot. The rotary turns and the loaded bags meet the second rotary ‘s bag pick up mechanism. The bag is transferred to a vacuum box of the second rotary and held on to the seal bar. The second rotary turns and the lid of the vacuum box closes. Vacuum and sealing take place. The finished bag is discharged as the lid opens. Get more details here.
