It looks to the world, and fully thinking about the co-existence together with the region society and the natural environment. Otsuka is striving to make contributions for more plentiful and healthy life all over the world.

Pocari Sweat is a type of functional drink and it is well known as ‘Drinks of sweat’ in Japan which means ‘drink it when sweat streaming’. It is unimaginable that just seems like alibaba finds the treasure in the cave. There are unexpected wonderful points that drinking this magical Pocari Sweat. It is not only can be easily absorbed by human body, but also the speed is faster than water and can reach to everywhere of the body to completely sovlve ‘thirsty’ and even ‘body thirsty’. Pocari Sweat can keep stay in our body for longer time and can moisture our body longer. The composition of Pocari Sweat is similar to our body fluid and can replenish water and keep electrolyte balance. Every 100ml of Pocari Sweat only contains 109 KJ of energy so it is the real healthy beverage.

You must be very interested in exploration of Pocari Sweat history. As early as 30 years ago, Otsuka staffs went abroad for business travel. It was really unfortunate that they had food poisoning. In order to prevent dehydration caused by diarrhea, large amount of physiological saline solution was needed. Otsuka staffs realized immediately that if they can drink something directly to take in electrolyte, it would be much better. Then this thought was brought back to Japan and at that time, Otstuka is already the world famous fluid infusion liquid manufacturer. In 1980, Otsuka developed Pocari Sweat which can replenish human body water and electrolyte. It is based on the theory of ‘ the drip which can be drank’, making use of human engineering, motion physiology and other scientific methods to study human’s behavior, life, sports and so on.

In 2002, Pocari Sweat entered China and opened the first factory in Tianjin. Hence, Pocari sweat gradually be known by Chinese people and it became the specified sports healthy drink which is appointed by China General Administration of Sport of China. In 2005, Pocari Sweat expanded their sale in Southern part of China and opened second factory which is in Jiangmen city of Guangdong province. On the way of growing, it is not only the sponsor of the Asia Games in 1998, 2002, 2006, but also presented to our daily life and working time. It is everywhere and accompany with you in your daily life.

Driven by innovation and win the market by quality!

Newamstar has focused on liquid packaging industry since from its establishment. Taking innovation as guide and basis, we have been forging ahead constantly.

As an outstanding company in China high-end equipment industry, Newamstar has built a dimensional product system gradually including beverage, milk, alcohol, condiment and daily used chemicals. We have won many innovative “China First” for various products. All these achievements and milestones will be fixed and memorized in the long history of Newamstar.


In recent years, with the increasing of automation and production capacity of liquid food packing line, contradictions between inventory and production capacity have become increasingly prominent. At the same time, with the increase of land cost and labor cost,traditional discrete model of warehousing and logistics using single logistics equipment or personnel to carry out the transportation of product and raw materials has been outdated.

With the deepening of “industry 4.0” and “Internet +” concept, the Chinese industry is transforming from the traditional labor-intensive to the industrial automation, and the traditional management mode based on people is turning to computer-based Information and modern management. Intelligent equipment represented by robot and a new generation of logistics model with the function of data collection, management and data tracing is being more widely used in the market.

Intelligent stereoscopic warehouse system: the first choice of beverage factory to upgrade the modern warehousing and logistics

As the Chinese leader in the field of liquid packaging, Newamstar accumulated rich experience in long-term development. By industry research, product technology development and the integration of industry resources over one year, Newamstar introduced the concept of “Internet +” into the production line followed by the pace of “Industry 4.0”. On the basis of rising the capacity and stability of liquid packaging production line, Newamstar optimized the structure of production lines and improved the level of automation of the production line by reducing the cost, and improving the quality and efficiency.

System composition:

  • Goods transition and storage – high rise shelf, tray and container.
  • Check in & out device – palletizer.
  • Check in & out distribution system – roller and chain conveyor, distributing vehicle, lifter, etc.
  • WCS control system – includes check in-out device controlled by computer, distribution system, various kinds of inspection and safety device controlled by electricity.
  • WMS warehouse management system – warehouse account management, data analyzing, goods site arrangement, device operation and warehouse storage display, etc.

A double extension tunnel stacking machine is adopted in the projects of“Moon over a Fountain Co. Ltd”, which achieve an effective balance between capacity and efficiency by improving space utilization and flexibility of warehousing in a limited space. The production line is connected with the warehouse directly, so a lot of material transfer links was saved. With advance internet technology, it realizes the resources and data sharing and connection between the ERP(enterprise resource management system), MES (manufacturing execution system) and WMS (warehouse management system) to reduce the mistakes and speed up access of the goods. Compared with the traditional discrete warehouse, Intelligent stereoscopic warehouse system can save the cost of land investment, reduce labor intensity, improve the working environment and reduce labor costs, finally improve the production efficiency and the level of modern management by making packaging and storage system Integrated, automated and intelligent.

In 2015, with excellent R&D design team and processing advantages of equipment manufacturing, Newamstar completed the development of automated warehouse system with tunnel stackerand RGV rail transport trolley. In the same year, Newamstar successfully presented it on CBST exhibition in Shanghai, and received wide attention from lots of companies in the industry. In 2016, automated material transport under special circumstances is solved by researching and developing non-rail AGV transport trolley. Through the introduction of advanced visual logistics simulation software, we can make simulation test in the project planning process, and do all kinds of system analysis and engineering verification for the model to get the final optimized the design. It can also quickly confirm the logistic equipment solution, further verify the feasibility of the project, provide improving and management basic data for the system, and reduce operating costs of production enterprises.

Currently, Newamstar are upgrading internal logistic system within the enterprise based on stereoscopic warehouse system, which is going to build an automated logistics system by using AGV non-rail intelligent trolley to distribute the raw materials, and create a new automated management system with the product lifecycle management, process management and information management.

A new era, a new chapter, a new dream. With the evolution and promotion of intelligent stereoscopic warehouse system, it will help beverage manufacturers to clarify and refine requirements, quantify data target and accuracy control of the production process, and finally help to realize the intelligent, automation and modernization of plant.
