PACK EXPO 2023 takes place September 11th - 13th in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Exhibit hall floor will be loaded with new products and services. Here is a preview of some things to look forward to at this years event.
Equipment Flexibility Key to Accommodating Changing Applications , The Upside of Automation on Your End-of-Line Operation, The Value of Project Management
You have lots of cartons coming into a typical warehouse, let's say 600 boxes per hour, and razor blades are used to cut these boxes while keeping up with intake speeds. This invites risks and employees still get injured, despite safety precautions.
PACK EXPO 2022 takes place October 23rd - 26th in Chicago, Illinois. The Exhibit hall floor will be loaded with new products and services. Here is a preview of some things to look forward to at this years event.
Supply chains have been disrupting virtually every industry from top to bottom. Numerous factors are contributing to the issue, so finding a solution that can mitigate the strain on the supply chain is challenging.
From a machine builder's point of view, robots can solve many processing and packaging line problems, but the chosen material handling systems supplying the line can reduce the robot's performance.
Automated packaging solutions can streamline almost any business's operations, providing a potential competitive edge and benefits like reduced waste or lower labor needs.
Up until now, users in the metal and plastics processing industries often faced a difficult choice: with CNC lathes and milling machines, one opted either for the largest possible variance or for large volumes, i.e., high quantities.
Generating accurate height data of boxes relative to the conveyor system is challenging to achieve with a single measurement tool. More often than not, this requires additional system configuration and potentially scripting.
With so many activities and over 2,600 scheduled demos taking place at PACK EXPO Connects, here is every preparation tool attendees need to ensure a successful event.
If the packaging sector hadn't been an early adopter of automation, it would have struggled through the pandemic. That's not to say that the situation has been easy, but it could've been much worse without robotics.
Automation is making conveyors a more integral component because of the contributions they're making to the overall efficiency and productivity of today's processing and packaging lines.
The current trend of automation has witnessed the development of new technologies that are capable of providing end-to-end automation for the production of certain processed foods.
Under the pressure of environmental concerns, the packaging industry is reorganizing. Changing lifestyles and rising raw materials prices have completed this movement.
Flexibility is the ultimate strategy for success in today's challenging market for food and beverage packaging. Companies are striving to produce increasingly large varieties of products - including various sizes and combinations.

A traditional gantry system employs X-Y or X-Y-Z range of motion. Mounted on a base plate, usually granite, 2 parallel rails constitute the synchronized Y axis motion while the cross axis (bridge axis) provides the X motion. A vertical axis can be added on the bridge for the Z motion. A Split Bridge system can be less complex than a traditional gantry system because synchronization of the two parallel linear motors is not required. Both systems are used in industrial production, testing, and additive manufacturing.
