Wexxar Bel Unveils New Flex E Pack Integration with Live Demonstrations at PACK EXPO 2021

Wexxar Bel integrates its Flex E Pack system with Shuttleworth’s product delivery technology to create a fully functional packing cell in booth C-3031.

RICHMOND, British Columbia, September 20, 2021 - Wexxar Bel, a ProMach brand, is pairing its Flex E Pack solution with a product delivery system from Shuttleworth to demonstrate a fully-functional packing cell in booth C-3031 at PACK EXPO 2021, Sept. 27-29, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Flex E Pack is a modular engineering solution that provides end users with the flexibility to integrate the right case former, product delivery conveyor, work cell and sealer that best meets their applications. The reasons why the Flex E Pack system works so well is that it's adaptable to meet changing packaging applications, all while reducing labor costs.
"Flex E Pack is a concept that involves forming, packing and sealing in a modular construct," said Sander Smith, Product Manager, Wexxar Bel. "One size never fits all, which is why you can assemble a system that's right sized for your application. Flex E Pack, along with a product delivery system from Shuttleworth, enable you to do that quite effectively."
This integration with Shuttleworth gives PACK EXPO attendees a glimpse to the possibilities of incorporating different types of product delivery systems into a Flex E Pack solution and the benefits that it offers to operators. Shuttleworth, also a ProMach brand (https://www.shuttleworth.com/), is a manufacturer of custom handling solutions with low back pressure and roller surface technologies to transport product along a production line.
"One of the exciting things about the partnership with Shuttleworth is that we're integrating some new methods of product delivery, as well as a variation of the pack stations that allows operators to be in close proximity, not just to the cases, but to the right product delivery for ease of operation," Smith said.
The Flex E Pack system will be in a two-person pack station configuration using a Wexxar Bel WF20 Fully Automatic Case Former that can form up to 20 cases per minute, along with a BEL 250 Fully Automatic Case Taper.
This fully functional integrated packaging line is a great example of ProMach bringing its product brands closer together to better meet the needs of its customers. Projects like this allow customers to have one central point of contact, and that contact really serves as a one-stop, full-service provider by connecting all the ProMach brands together. This level of project management greatly streamlines the planning process, installation, and start-up curve for packaging lines.
Forty-two packaging and automation-focused companies comprise the ProMach family of product brands in categories including Systems & Integration, Filling, Bottling & Capping, Decorative Labeling, Flexibles & Trays, Handling & Sterilization, Labeling & Coding, Robotics & End of Line, and Pharma.
