The Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV will be presenting new technologies and solutions at interpack from May 4 to 10, 2023 in Hall 4, Booth C45, that enable companies in the packaging and food industries to realize digital value creation and enter the circular economy.
The VR-based training courses developed by the Fraunhofer IVV for the efficient training and further education of operating and technical personnel enable rapid and sustainable qualification of operators during ongoing operations - without stopping production or consuming resources.
To counteract the quality risks associated with manual cleaning processes and the increasing challenge posed by the shortage of skilled workers, the Fraunhofer IVV has developed digital solutions in the form of "CleanAssist" and the "Mobile Cleaning Device", which, through the use of augmented reality (AR), digital twin and intelligent sensor technology, finally allow real cleaning validation and reliable quality assurance of cleaning.
The Fraunhofer IVV is meeting the growing demands on the packaging industry for recyclable packaging systems with the targeted development of fiber-based packaging solutions and technologies to ensure the processing of paper and alternative materials in high-speed machines. Exhibits will demonstrate the achievable variety of shapes of thermoformed fiber-based packaging, the combination of molded parts with functional and partly organic barriers, and the synergy of embossing with 3D molded parts to design consumer packaging.
