SMC to showcase at Foodtech Packtech 2021
SMC Corporation Australia | New Zealand (ANZ) is included in this year’s exhibitor line-up at Foodtech Packtech.
SMC will launch its latest campaign entitled ‘Smart Steps to Flexible Manufacturing’ at the trade show in Auckland.
“Contrary to popular belief, taking incremental steps toward your digitisation journey can make the biggest difference and will greatly assist in ‘futureproofing’ business operations,” said Shyam Suresh, Acting Branch Manager for SMC Auckland.
Rather than upgrading entire systems, the team at SMC will be able to show visitors some smart and affordable solutions. “Upgrading your production to become smarter can include steps towards energy savings, newer technologies and/or improving remote access capabilities for improved efficiencies and reduced downtime.”
Wireless technology, smarter vacuum systems, improved air filtration, Industry 4.0 solutions, robotic end effectors as well as safety communication technology and components are just some of the ideas that can be considered.
Shyam notes that a big drive to launch this campaign is the need for reshoring. “Customers want to produce locally made products to compete on a global stage and to ensure shorter supply chains. SMC is assisting customers around the country with their requirements and offers special engineering and design, virtual (and hands-on) support, high stock levels, shorter delivery times and latest technology to support local manufacturers.”
The company is also showcasing its comprehensive vacuum range.
“In terms of lightweight engineering, SMC will also use this opportunity to demonstrate how design and materials can be used to help to minimise the weight of the end solution — without affecting its performance. These innovations are especially powerful for robotic applications.”
SMC is also the sponsor of the Izakaya Bar, which offers visitors the opportunity to connect more socially with SMC and other exhibitors.
