In today’s rapidly evolving world, in which technological progress is the order of the day, the packaging industry is not left behind. Packaging is crucial for the protection, presentation and distribution of various goods. However, as in many other industries, companies in the packaging industry are faced with the challenge of outdated machinery and control systems. JD Engineers B.V., a leading partner in the packaging industry, recognizes these issues and provides innovative solutions to help customers overcome these technical hurdles.

The challenge of aging

Outdated packaging machinery and control systems pose a significant challenge to both potential and existing JD Engineers customers. Once considered advanced, these machines now face technological limitations and inefficiencies that hinder the productivity and efficiency of the packaging process. These challenges can manifest themselves at different levels of the production process:

  • Energy use: Older machines are often less energy efficient than their more modern counterparts. They lack advanced energy-saving technologies and can consume significant amounts of electricity. This not only leads to higher operational costs, but also has a negative impact on the environment.
  • Maintenance and repair: Aging machines often require more frequent maintenance and repairs. Parts can be difficult to obtain and repair technicians must have specific knowledge of aging systems. This results in higher costs and downtime, which affects overall production.
  • Capacity and performance: Older machines may not be able to meet current production requirements. They have limited capacity and cannot offer the same speed and precision as modern equipment. This can lead to a slower production process and the inability to respond to market demand.
  • Safety and regulations: Changes in regulations and safety standards can cause obsolete machines to no longer meet requirements. This can lead to legal complications and potential risks to workers and the environment.

The solutions of JD Engineers

JD Engineers understands the complexity of these challenges and is committed to providing solutions that help customers modernize their packaging processes without the need for full replacement. One of our best solutions is the Tanabe JD BOXR, an advanced machine specially designed to meet the needs of the modern packaging industry.

Upgrades and Retrofits: JD Engineers offers extensive upgrades and retrofits for existing machines. These upgrades include integrating new control systems, energy efficient components and advanced sensor technologies. This allows customers to upgrade their legacy machines to the performance levels of today’s standards.

  • Customization: Each packaging process is unique and requires custom solutions. JD Engineers work closely with customers to understand their specific needs and design solutions that perfectly match their production requirements. This includes adapting machines to different sizes, materials and production needs.
  • Efficiency and sustainability: JD Engineers strives for efficiency and sustainability in their solutions. By integrating energy-efficient technologies, customers can not only reduce their operational costs, but also reduce their carbon footprint. This contributes to both economic and environmental benefits.

Training and support: When modernizing obsolete machines, training of staff is essential. JD Engineers provide extensive training and support to ensure that staff can effectively operate and maintain the new systems, extending the life and performance of the machines.
