Abstract
In the food industry, increasing market competition has seen intensified efforts in finding new solutions for safer, more efficient and higher quality production systems. If the established conditions of the production allows for the automation of processes, there is a substantial potential to achieve those various improvements throughout the production. Since each production system is unique and the automation of, for example, a packaging machine is a significant investment, a thorough set of specifications and an evaluation of future demands is a necessity. This thesis is specifically relating to the production of Zoégas in Helsingborg, and is performed through Lund's Institute of Technology within Electrical Engineering and Automation.... (More)
In the food industry, increasing market competition has seen intensified efforts in finding new solutions for safer, more efficient and higher quality production systems. If the established conditions of the production allows for the automation of processes, there is a substantial potential to achieve those various improvements throughout the production. Since each production system is unique and the automation of, for example, a packaging machine is a significant investment, a thorough set of specifications and an evaluation of future demands is a necessity. This thesis is specifically relating to the production of Zoégas in Helsingborg, and is performed through Lund's Institute of Technology within Electrical Engineering and Automation. Zoégas produces grounded coffee and whole beans in a variety of packages. The coffee is produced in the factory in different production lines, and the aim of the thesis is to investigate which requirements an additional packaging machine must meet, how to integrate the system for production line four and conclusively suggest a potential packaging machine for future implementation. The current production scenario was assessed as well as future demands. This resulted in a range of specifications that a plausible packaging machine has to fulfill. (This includes temperature ranges, humidity levels and dimension of machine etc). Three machines from local and international companies were evaluated, and the most favorable packaging machine was identified. (Less)
