Industrial food processing equipment (IFPE) manufacturers face pressure to improve the speed and efficiency of their product design and engineering so they can reduce delivery time and increase profit margins. Solid Edge® software from Siemens PLM Software enables them to do just that by streamlining the design of new equipment so they can meet market pressures, including:
Meeting food manufacturers’ demands for equipment that results in lower labor costs and an improved work environment for their employees. To support this, equipment manufacturers need to improve the operating costs and ergonomic characteristics of the equipment they design and manufacture.
The trend toward more food product parity together with a growing awareness of the environmental impact of food packaging. This is driving food manufacturers to demand packaging with more customer appeal while maximizing recyclability. This is an opportunity to offer innovative equipment that maximizes consumer convenience and appeal, while minimizing the environmental impact of packaging.
