feature image Hear our chief editor's audio report on Pack Expo 2013 Day One
A new flexible packaging group aimed at reducing the fragmentation that has stymied uptake of flexible packaging applications in the U.S., news that the founder of Elau is now a part of the Beckhoff Group, a smart servo motor that takes advantage of Near-Field Communication and smart phones, energy savings through better conveying connections, and a new entry in the print-on-demand corrugated case category--this and much more was on display at Pack Expo Las Vegas on day one.
feature image Blister design service for pharmaceutical packaging
BlisterPro® is Klockner Pentaplast's next-generation design service that allows package designers, technicians, and engineers to explore the effects of tool geometry, film types, and process conditions, as well as predict the protective barrier properties of the trial package without expensive and time-consuming line trials.
feature image Palletize at speeds of 2 secs/bag
New robotic system from Fanuc is capable of palletizing 30+ bags/min and is suitable for cases or bags. The unique benefit is that this palletizer breaks the two second barrier for bag-to-bag palletizing.
feature image Multi-axis demo for pick-and-place, palletizing
B&R featured a live demo of a multi-axis ActuatorLine from Rollon. The unit demos a 5 actuator - 3 axis of motion infrared target practice game that is driven by B&R controls. Rollon X-Y-Z gantry is an out-of-the-box solution for pick and place, packaging, palletizing and depalletizing, delivering flexible, reliable, accurate linear motion controlled by B&R.
feature image Fully-automatic filling & closing system
This highly flexible system from Groninger can process jars, bottles and cosmeceuticals all on the same machine. With an output of 3,600 units per hour, the MFCS 201R can handle container heights from 30-100 mm and diameters from 10-100 mm.
feature image Servo motor has field-replaceable encoders
The 1FK7 servo motor from Siemens is developed with field-replaceable encoders that make for quick and easy on-site service with no special tools or recalibration required. Modular design permits the swapping of incremental encoder with an absolute encoder right in the field, without sending the unit back to the factory. Also shown is Sinamics S120M that integrates motor and drive right in the same unit, ideal for vertical form/fill/seal machines, flow wrappers, rotary capping machines, filling machines, and other packaging equipment.
feature image A new paradigm on industrial robots?
Keith Campbell's first look at new technology from two companies, Universal Robotics and Rethink Robotics. These companies are taking a completely different approach to robotics, offering units that are inexpensive, flexible, adaptable, and easily retrained. Will they work in packaging?
feature image Smart motor features Near-Field Communications
Servo motor efficiently delivers great starting torque and can be programmed from a smart phone via Near Field Communication. The constant speed of the Smart motor can be set steplessly between 500 and 2600 rpm.
feature image Half pallet meets multiple usage needs
CHEP introduces a 40x24-in. half pallet made of wood, with metal blocks allowing for 21-in.-wide pallet jack entry. Offers opportunities for retailers to replenish products on store shelves and build promotional "retail-ready" displays to help build sales.
