Hopefully, “what happens in Vegas” does not “stay in Vegas” with regard to this year’s Pack Expo during October 5, 6, and 7 in the famous Nevada location. Plenty of sessions and exhibitors should give you a lot of information, ideas, and solutions to take back with you.
You’ll find sessions on digital package printing, sustainability, economics, legal and regulatory issues, coding, and material alternatives. All 52 individual presentation sessions cover a spectrum of packaging topics including design, emerging technologies, and operational issues. The Conference will include daily plenary sessions with a trio of retailers from The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company, SuperValu and Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market offering their unique market insights.
Discover cutting-edge packaging machinery, converting machinery, processing technology, materials and containers–plus the latest advances in security packaging, new printing and graphic technologies, and instrumentation. You can register for up to four sessions and one keynote per day, as sessions will run concurrently.
Here’s are a couple of the more than 1,200 exhibitors:
Packtrak, from Jacobs Automation transforms hardware-laden machinery into software-based, flexible digital machinery.
Using Maglev technology, PackTrak™ delivers independent oftware control of multiple movers on a track with minimal hardware – the root cause for inflexibility and downtime in a machine.
Lantech’s new stretch wrapping system uses the company’s patent-pending No-Film-Break technology to reduce film-use as by up to 50%.
Available on the straddle platform for automatic, conveyorized stretch wrappers, the new machine suits in-line use with high-speed palletizers. It can handle a range of consumer goods and beverages shipped in display packs, or order-picked loads of highly mixed goods. Using No-Film-Break technology, wrapping is so gentle that the machine can wrap partial layers. The new machine is rated at 60-80 pallets per hour, and is available with a high-speed option for 80-100 pallets per hour.
