A few days ago, the 16th Annual Meeting of the China Food Science and Technology Society and the 10th China-US Food Industry Senior Forum kicked off in Wuhan, Hubei Province. The total output value of China's food machine can rise from 47.2 billion yuan in 1978 to 12 trillion yuan in 2018, which is closely related to the innovative development of food technology. Insiders said that in the future, China's food industry will also show a variety of development trends. What new development challenges will this bring to the food equipment manufacturing industry?
Development of food synthetic biology
Synthetic biology is a discipline that has just developed in the 21st century. As synthetic biological technology continues to mature, the development of complex organisms becomes possible. Nowadays, the research of synthetic biology in the field of food is constantly deepening, and the artificial meat of the fire this year is one of them. At present, many domestic enterprises and research institutions have begun to introduce artificial meat products, and the concept stocks of some listed artificial meat companies have continued to rise.
Most of the artificial meats on the market today are produced from proteins such as soybeans and peas, but the beany smell of vegetable protein meat makes it difficult to get close to animal meat. According to the introduction of scientific researchers, the separation and extraction of equipment may enable the separation of fishy flavoured substances mainly based on acetaldehyde from plant proteins. In this regard, relevant equipment manufacturers need to further enhance the separation efficiency of the equipment, so that the equipment can retain the protein in the product while separating the fishy substance, so as to solve the problem of odor of artificial meat.
Personalized food manufacturing
The rapid development of China's economy has driven the improvement of people's living standards. At the same time, consumers' demand for food has become diversified and personalized. For production enterprises, flexible production of products has become a new demand. Flexible production mainly refers to the production methods of multiple varieties and small batches relying on highly flexible production equipment. It can help enterprises to quickly convert product production, so that enterprises can quickly adapt to market demand, thereby further optimizing production capacity and increase the economic benefits of enterprises.
Equipment manufacturers should also pay attention to improving the flexible production capacity of equipment when producing equipment. First of all, we must optimize the overall design of the equipment and enhance the precision of the equipment parts so that they can be quickly repaired and restored to operation when a failure occurs. Secondly, the flexibility of the equipment and the connection capacity of the production line are improved, so that the equipment can form a dynamically combined production line, reducing the investment cost of the production enterprise and shortening the production cycle.
Intelligent manufacturing of food equipment
With the arrival of "Industry 4.0", intelligence has become one of the upgrading trends of the food industry. Many production companies have begun to focus on the construction of intelligent chemical plants. To build an intelligent chemical factory, the support of intelligent food machinery is indispensable. In this regard, equipment manufacturers should deepen the integration of artificial intelligence technology, Internet technology, etc. with equipment, so that the equipment has higher independent production and operation capabilities.
Intelligent equipment can record all the data in production in time to provide data support for the production line adjustment. The accumulation of these operating data can also help the equipment to improve its predictive maintenance capabilities, thereby reducing the equipment failure rate. In addition, due to the improvement of automation level, it can reduce the labor cost of enterprises, further improve production efficiency and prevent food safety problems.
