Numerous tourist attractions are located there.

Huge Edible Oil Market Potential

The integration of the international community and the promotion of tourism culture have given us a deeper understanding of Indonesia. Whether you visit the streets, , restaurants, and shopping malls of Indonesia, or browse the website, you can easily find that Indonesians have different eating habits from Chinese. The biggest difference is that they don’t like steamed food, but prefer fried food, such as fried grouper, fried snapper, fried banana, etc. Therefore, cooking oil has become an indispensable part of Indonesian life.

According to statistics, in 2019, Indonesia’s annual domestic edible oil production was about 14 million tons, of which 5.1 million tons were used to meet domestic demand, and the rest were used to supply foreign markets. As early as 2008, Indonesia overtook Malaysia and became the world’s largest palm oil exporter. It currently holds more than 50% of the global market share.

Improved Standards Bring Wonderful Prospects

In recent years, the Indonesian government has continuously strengthened its control over the safety of edible oil. In 2019, when Indonesian Minister of Trade Enggartiasto Lukita attended an event in Jakarta entitled “Launch the packaged edible oil and promote consumption of domestic product”, he stated, “By January 2020, the sale of bulk edible oil will no longer be allowed in stores. 50% of the edible oil that meets domestic demand is still bulk oil, and its cleanliness is not guaranteed from the perspective of production or distribution. The Ministry of Trade’s plan to convert bulk cooking oil to packaged cooking oil and it is part of the government’s strategic plan because the quality and safety are more assured.”

The Indonesian government’s move is undoubtedly beneficial to the health of consumers, and at the same time, it will also profoundly affect consumers’ consumption habits. As Indonesia’s leading packaged edible oil supplier, BKP Group is actively responding to government initiatives to provide consumers with safer packaged edible oil. As a strategic partner of BKP Group, Newamstar will also continue to support its production capacity increase. We look forward to providing BKP Group and more customers with high-quality equipment and first-class services in the future edible oil market in Indonesia, so that more consumers can enjoy healthy, safe and nutritious high-quality edible oil.

Newamstar Edible Oil Filling Machine Helps COFCO Achieve Product Upgrading

With the continuous improvement of consumers’ pursuit of life quality, the demand for refinement, differentiation and diversification of future health consumer goods is becoming higher and higher. The edible oil industry is also affected by this trend. The innovation and iteration speed of edible oil products’ categories and packaging specifications have been faster and faster.

As a famous brand in edible oil industry, COFCO Fulinmen, in order to meet the market demand, focuses on the implementation of refined management, adopts order scheduling, and accelerates the turnover of inventory, which puts forward higher requirements for the flexible manufacturing of production lines, such as the efficiency and stability of equipment, production changeover time of different bottle specifications and intelligent information tracking. These have become the key technical indicators and contents of COFCO Fulinmen.

Based on the mutual trust and good cooperation foundation established with Newamstar for many years, COFCO Fulinmen has entrusted the edible oil packaging project to Newamstar, expecting to realize the flexible production of multi packaging specifications and bundled products with the help of Newamstar’s flexible packaging technology. For this reason, the two flexible production lines undertake the task of multi specification and bundling production, and one of the 4000 BPH (5L) edible oil filling line is compatible with 4L, 4.5L, 3.68L and 5.436L bottle specifications, while the other 4000BPH(900ml) edible oil filling line is compatible with 400ml and 700ml bottle specifications. At the same time, it also needs to realize the bundling of 5L and 400ml bottles and the bundling of 5L and 700ml bottles.

More than 20 people are required to deal with bundling in the traditional way. In the warehouse, the cartons of large and small bottles are disassembled, and then the small bottles are hung on the large bottles, and finally manually packed and palletized. This process is not only inefficient, but also needs to separate a lot of space to implement, and needs to deal with the transfer box, which consumes a lot of manpower, material resources, financial resources and time costs. Now, the solution provided by Newamstar is that after the products produced by the two production lines are converged, online bundling, automatic packing and automatic palletizing will be carried out automatically, which perfectly solves many existing problems for customers, and bundling can be realized on the existing packing machine and palletizing machine, saving equipment investment cost and land occupation space.

Separation of people flow and logistics

The implementation plan is centralized palletizing on the first floor, the second floor is the main line of filling and packaging, including the workflow from bottle blowing to carton sealing, while the third floor provides cartons, preforms, caps and top handles, which are sent to the relevant equipment of the production line on the second floor through specific conveying devices.

Green preservation technology

Before filling, nitrogen is used to replace the air at the bottle mouth to avoid oil oxidation, improve shelf life and ensure product safety.

Perfect visual inspection

Equipped with efficient visual inspection system for preform, label, filling, capping, top handle, it not only reduces the intervention and operation of personnel, and improve the efficiency, but also better ensure the product quality.

Docking intelligent control system

The flexible production line solution realizes the docking of ERP and WMS management system, intelligently tracks the equipment operation parameters and energy consumption data of the production line, so as to make the customer’s factory management more accurate, more intelligent and more convenient.

Diversified bottle-feeding system

The 5L packaging line makes the automatic bottle blowing compatible with the bottle-feeding system of out-sourced bottles, which can not only meet the high-speed production of main bottle types, but also meet the high-speed production of small batch out-sourced bottles. The out-sourced bottles enter into the bottle de-duster through the bottle-feeding system to remove dust by ion gas, so as to ensure the hygiene and cleanliness of the products.

Efficient and energy saving bottle blowing system

In the aspect of bottle blowing, Newamstar’s new generation bottle blowing technology is adopted. By using the servo stretching system and the new generation high-efficiency heating oven system, it can greatly save the consumption of high-pressure air and electric power. The quick-change device used in bottle blowing can enable users to quickly switch the bottle type to save changeover time.

Stable and accurate filling system

Weighing measuring is adopted for filling system, and the system is equipped with a suction device to ensure the filling accuracy, no dripping and sanitation of the filling environment. The configured weighing system has its own feedback system which can automatically adjust the weight to ensure the net weight of filling requirements.

Flexible secondary packaging system

It can not only realize the packing and palletizing of individual large and small bottles, but also realize the automatic binding of large and small bottles. Convenient switching and high automation meet the flexible packaging requirements of multi specification products.

Flexible palletizing system

The two edible oil packaging production lines share one robot palletizer to save space, and is convenient to switch palletizing format, which can meet the compatible production of multi specification products. The unified pallets distribution and empty pallets conveying system ensure that the existing production line and the new flexible production line can be used together, which improves the stability and ensures the smooth operation of multiple production lines.

Over the years, Newamstar has made continuous breakthroughs and innovations in the field of edible oil packaging technology. On the one hand, it has successively launched packaging solutions for the production line of high-speed blowing-filling-capping combi block for 5L large bottles and 500ml small bottles. On the other hand, combined with the whole life cycle of the production line, it has built an intelligent production line management system and product safety traceability system based on the edible oil industry to help customers realize operation monitoring, performance analysis, energy management, maintenance analysis, production reports, production tracking and other functions which can make production management more relaxed, convenient and intelligent.

With its insistence on product quality and continuous pursuit of product innovation, COFCO Fulinmen was awarded the honorary title of “Sponsor of China National Women’s Volleyball Team” in 2019. In the future, Fulinmen will continue to ensure the safety of National Cereals and oils, continue to focus on innovation, improve the nutrition and health standards of products, serve consumers with the quality of “Women’s Volleyball”, and let the people enjoy a healthy and comfortable life. In line with the mission of helping customers build ideal factories, Newamstar will continue to bring forth new ideas and help more customers realize more diversified innovation needs through strong R&D technology strength and rich experience.
