Packaging offers products protection and, as consumers, gives you the feeling that: “My product is perfectly protected.” However, in order for food, drinks or pharmaceutical products to be consumed without a care, packaging plant and machinery must meet the same requirement: they must be 100 per cent safe. Pilz wraps it up: both manufacturers and operators of packaging machines are offered flexible automation and safety solutions. In the current issue of “Mensch und Automation”, you can find out how they help to meet the current challenges of the packaging industry.
