Utveckling av förpackningssystem för torra insatsvaror i livsmedel Development of packaging system for dry food ingredients
This project includes development of new packaging for dry spices and an investigation of how to automate the production line. The preliminary investigations show needs of an environmental friendly packaging possible to re-close. After screening for suitable materials three concepts were developed, a stand-up pouch, a plastic jar and a metal can. The pouch was excluded in a concept choosing process. In this process it was also decided to further develop the metal can concept. This resulted in the development of an integrated cap for metal cans of standard design, which is the final packaging concept.
Time studies and logistic analyses were carried out on the production line to give information for the automation part of the project. These analyses show that it is possible to reduce costs by automate parts of the production line. However higher production volumes are necessary to benefit from a fully automated production line. Apart from automation, time and cost should be possible to save by implementing continuous improvement work.
