Since introducing its first packaging machine in 1915 and becoming a founding member of PMMI in 1933, NJM has been establishing its leadership position, expanding its product offering and continuing to build its reputation in the packaging arena.
Habasit America demonstrated a new feature on its established micropitch belt, the SaniClip. A typical belt requires a screwdriver or other dedicated tool to pull a pin. The SaniClip uses a specialized belt pin that can be hand-pulled. Color-coding identifies the features location on the belt.
Berry Plastics' new Blue Clover Studios builds on the company's existing rigid plastic package design expertise, adding a full complement of services, including market research, idea generation, 3D prototyping, and validation, to deliver disruptive innovation to CPGs.
The Tite-Pak system from Graphic Packaging uses the benefits of a fiber-based, paperboard product instead of corrugated to provide a strong handle for glass bottle packaging. Further, a new technique protects the bottles at the heels, replacing previous partition system with a series of strategically-place ins at the bottom of the package.
The new HSP small-footprint bagger from M-Tek vacuums, gas flushes and seals. Plus, its stainless steel construction makes for easy wash down without having to spend time covering or protecting any machine components.
Intelligrated's mixed-load order fulfillment system sequences products to be built, by robot, on a stretch wrapper. The system cubes out the load to determine what the order will need to look like, and the robot then sequences the order as necessary.
The new automation panel 900 series from B&R ranges from 12" to 24" and uses both resistive, single-touch and capacitive multi-touch technology. For a lower barrier to entry and price point, the PC 2100 series is compact and can match with any panel.
Ideal for chemically sensitive pharmaceutical applications, Rollprint's Exponent 2 high-barrier film combines the company's ClearFoil and a co-extruded non-crystalline polyester sealant. The film offers a comparable alternative to the acrylonitrile-methyl acrylate copolymer offered by Barex, which recently announced its exit from the market.
Dueling reclosure features, retail-ready case packing strategies, gorgeous full-body shrink sleeve labels, and an app for auger fillers that calculates machine parameters--this and so much more was on display at Pack Expo 2014 on Day One.
New from Starview, the Model FAB8-1418 fully automatic 8-station rotary blister sealer integrates an ESS Technologies' vision-guided robot to orient and pick-and-place product that is then packaged in a trapped blister at speeds to 18 to 20 cycles/min.
