Emerson Automation Solutions
Automated packaging technologies for maximum operational efficiency
Emerson’s advanced primary packaging systems have been specifically designed to increase the reliability and precision of filling processes for a versatile range of products and industries.
The company’s automated solutions are also able to improve the speed and efficiency of packaging operations and facilitate an increase in production rates.
Furthermore, our powerful technologies can be relied upon to address key considerations such as product safety, integrity and traceability in order to mitigate wastage and maximise both profitability and customer satisfaction.
Secondary packaging solutions for robust product protection
Emerson provides a portfolio of cutting-edge secondary packaging and palletising solutions to help customers deliver their products safely and effectively from the production plant to their target location.
Our robust secondary packaging systems have been proven to effectively safeguard products during transportation to enable quicker and more secure shipments, while allowing more products to arrive at market undamaged and on time, resulting in significant cost and time savings for suppliers.
Ultrasonically welded packaging systems for effective contamination protection
Emerson’s technologies and industry expertise provide vital support to customers by promoting the use of optimal packaging designs and ensuring machinery runs at centreline, which minimises wastage throughout the production process.
Our systems also avoid the need to develop entirely new packaging formats, which can be costly and time-consuming to produce, as well as potentially damaging to the environment.
Emerson’s range of Branson high-strength ultrasonic seals that provide effective leak and contamination prevention, resulting in less wasted produce and fewer rejected items throughout the consumer supply chain.
This innovative technology also eliminates the amount of consumable material used during production in order to facilitate smaller packaging designs, leading to lower operational costs and more environmentally friendly processes.
Our ultrasonically sealed packaging solutions have been designed to be compatible with both recyclable and bio materials and are able decrease customers’ overall energy usage by up to 25%, as well as significantly reduce their facilities’ harmful carbon emissions by as much as 75%.
Risk-reducing automation solutions for safe packaging operations
Risks to operators are greater today than ever before because of increased interactions, machine complexity and pressure to deliver upon customer expectations.
Emerson’s solutions are able to provide effective protection for packaging plant personnel and assets by reducing the risk to operators and improving machine safety without compromising production speed or quality.
Our ASCO Numatics™ zoned safety valve islands allow design engineers to comply with all the equipment safety directives and standards required for their activities, while simultaneously eliminating unnecessary components and operational complexities commonly found in other safety circuit designs.
The ASCO Numatics 503 Series system reduces the need for operators to shutdown the entire machine when working in close proximity to moving equipment. Instead, the valve island enables them to only cut power and pilot air to the valves controlling the movement of equipment in the vicinity of the worker, which helps improve personnel safety and minimise potentially costly downtime.
Real-time performance monitoring systems for the packaging industry
Emerson offers a range of cutting-edge solutions designed to provide real-time information regarding the performance of users’ machinery and packaging operations, which help reduce process variation and minimise downtime, wastage and quality issues.
Our technologies provide customers with accurate, detailed and up-to-date process data, which enables them to address any concerns that threaten their ability to meet market demand, while promoting greater reliability and improving long-term performance.
Emerson solutions commonly deployed for industrial packaging applications include:
- ASCO fluid automation

Emerson’s cutting-edge ASCO Numatics™ Zoned Safety system enables users to isolate the air supply to a moving machinery component, which helps contribute to safer work conditions for personnel without unnecessary disruption to the production process.
Emerson’s Micro Motion Filling Mass Transmitter (FMT) is an advanced integral-mount, high-speed filling transmission solution that has been specially optimised for packaging applications.
Emerson’s advanced SolaHD™ SDU Series DIN Rail DC uninterruptable power supply (UPS) has been developed to deliver reliable and robust back-up power by quickly and efficiently converting direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) power formats.
Emerson has signed an agreement to acquire General Electric’s Intelligent Platforms division.
Emerson has introduced the ability to integrate multiple safety zones within a single ASCO Numatics™ Series 503 valve island.
Emerson has released the Rosemount™ CT4215 Food and Beverage Leak Detection System for high-quality demands within the food and beverage packaging industry.
