PAC Worldwide Releases the PACjacket3, the Next Generation of Their Automated Packaging Machine Series

PAC Worldwide is pleased to announce the latest version of their highly successful automated packaging machine series, from their PACjacket Systems line, the PACjacket3.

Redmond, WA November 13, 2013


The revolutionary design of this state-of-the-art machine utilizes only one web of film to create an even stronger finished package, and still without expensive cold seal. The machine can run standard 7/64" bubble film, 1/2" bubble film, and flat poly film. The PACjacket3 not only packages product faster than the previous systems, but decreases waste with its "right sizing" capabilities, and has a much smaller footprint.

"Quality, precision, and speed were what we had in mind for our customers when we developed this PACjacket3 automated solution. Our new single web design produces a higher quality seal that offers greater security to its contents by reducing the number of heat seals necessary to produce a finished package off the system. The transition to a servo driven film feed makes the length of the overall package more precise which reduces the amount of material necessary which equates to savings for the customer. The multitude of enhancements designed into this new PACjacket3 have increased our throughput speeds by as much as an astounding 25% when comparing to previous generations of our system.

Needless to say, we believe the PACjacket3 will be a true game changer when it comes to offering an automated solution for protective packaging." - Jeff Kellerman - Product Category Manager-Automated Solutions.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
