VDMA 8751: 2019-03 - Specifying and checking the energy consumption of packaging systems for specific applications

15.02.2019 It is foreseeable that consumption data for packaging systems will be requested more and more frequently in future. But how can data from different manufacturers be compared? Can the data be transferred to the conditions in user operation? Do they stand up to scrutiny? VDMA 8751: 2019-03 "Filling and packaging machines - Specification and measurement of energy and media consumption" provides the basis for answering these questions.

VDMA 8751 (draft): Packaging machinery (incl. filling machinery) – Specification and measurement of energy and utility consumption

29.06.2018 Energy and utility media consumption of packaging machinery is dependent on the operation pattern of the machine system considered. This VDMA standard sheet defines key figures and machine performance levels for which average energy and media consumption could be specified related to defined boundary conditions. Based on these specifications the expected energy- and media consumption could be calculated for a given production pattern. The calculated consumption could be verified by measurement of energy and media consumption in the course of an acceptance run of the machine system.
