Plastics & Packaging
We stock automation spares for the plastics and packaging industry.
Major disruptions to production lines and supply chains due to the COVID-19 pandemic and labour shortages are just some of the reasons driving plastics and packaging manufacturers towards automation.
Mordor Intelligence reports that the packaging automation market is set to grow from $69.61 billion in 2023 to a whopping $101.38 billion in 2028.
Automation plays a crucial role in the industry, helping to increase efficiency, improve product quality, cut labour costs and reduce environmental impact. It's used in various ways, such as performing repetitive tasks like filling, capping and labelling products on the production line, stacking and unstacking pallets, injection moulding, blow moulding and much more.
There are many reasons why these automated machines may fail, which can lead to costly repairs.
For example, contamination from foreign materials can impact machine performance. If machines are subjected to overloading due to fluctuation in production demands, they may also break down. Continuous use, friction and excessive vibration also can cause damage to parts like belts, gears and seals, eventually leading to equipment failure.
Therefore, having critical spare parts readily available for maintenance is crucial to reducing downtime.
However, we understand that keeping spares isn't always possible, regardless of how important a particular part might be.
That's why we stock thousands of spares for the plastics and packaging industry from hundreds of brands, including B&R, WAGO, Siemens, Allen-Bradley, Beckhoff, Pilz, Honeywell, SEW-Eurodrive and Omron.
