In the wake of a pandemic which has seen a greater reliance on technology, Endoline Machinery, while meeting demands from food manufacturers for automation, has launched a Virtual Machine Demonstration service to ensure end-of-line machinery specifications are met exactly, without the need for face-to-face interaction.
Manufacturers are increasingly looking to integrate automated and robotic systems into their processing and packing facilities to safeguard continued manufacturing, while mitigating the current restrictions placed on manual workers.
As a designer and manufacturer of both standard and customised end-of-line packaging machines, Endoline builds systems to suit a customer’s exact requirements. However, a thorough understanding of a customer’s needs is an integral element of this process, with many personnel involved.
Leveraging its experience in dealing with global customers, who often need the involvement of several manufacturing sites across the world to link up virtually to view live Factory Acceptance Tests, Endoline have packaged up this expertise within its Virtual Machine Demonstration resource.
Through live demonstrations, manufacturers can speak to a range of Endoline personnel, including sales, technical engineers, and end-of-line machinery designers to create a system which meets their specific needs. Endoline’s prime position of building machinery in-house also enables customers to ask technical questions, and view multiple functionalities of the machine during the build process.
“We are witnessing an increasing reliance on automation to streamline processing and packing lines.” Comments Andrew Yates, Sales Director at Endoline Automation. “It is essential that we continue to deliver the same level of high-quality service and diminish any challenges customers may face when installing valuable equipment during these unprecedented times.”
The fact that Endoline’s fully automated systems can also be controlled and monitored remotely further reduces the risk to personnel as it negates the need for human presence, and allows for the factory to operate remotely.
Endoline’s Virtual Machine Demonstration can be carried across virtual conferencing platforms Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams.
