This year’s theme highlights the shared progress BW Packaging and its customers have made solving prominent industry challenges through ongoing dialogue about labor shortages, sustainability commitments, food safety standards, and several other challenges.
“We understand that there is a tremendous amount of value that can be created by listening to customers and embracing their challenges as our own,” said Carol O’Neill, Barry-Wehmiller Group President, Packaging. “It’s through these conversations that we’re able to understand our customers’ needs and develop purposeful solutions to optimize their packaging processes.”
BW Integrated Systems’ Maximus Mid-Speed Case Palletizer (shown), which meets increased customer demands for a flexible high-level palletizer, will make its first in-person appearance. This solution was designed for simple maintenance and includes a unique split-for-ship feature, which allows for a quicker vertical startup.
The Hayssen ISB VFFS Bagger featuring the latest technology in intelligent, sanitary bagging for food, includes several improved features that were added following another year of productive conversations with end users.
Building upon the capabilities of its 2021 innovation – the CB50C counter-pressure canning line – Pneumatic Scale Angelus will exhibit the new CB100C Counter-Pressure Canning Line for craft brewers. This solution allows craft brewers to increase their throughput to more than 100 cans-per-minute, leveraging a 12-head rotary filling turret design coupled with a dual-station seamer.
Synerlink team members will guide visitors through an immersive 3D view of Versatech, their latest filling solution for the food and dairy industry. Versatech’s modular design enables customers to continually realign the solution with their evolving business strategy, solving the market need for a filling solution that can outlast the standard 20-to-30-year lifecycle.
Accraply’s new MK6 Pressure Sensitive/ TE Band Labeling Solution will also be on display. With Accrapy’s SmartLink HMI as a standard feature, the MK6 brings together labelling and tamper evident sleeving on a single solution. It is specifically designed to meet the modern demands of fast-moving, highly flexible production lines.
“As is the case with all our solutions, we’ll offer lifetime customer support for each of these innovations,” said O’Neill. “This is something that we’ve always done because, at its core, BW Packaging is a team of people who genuinely care about the success and wellbeing of our customers.”
Visitors can also explore multiple sustainable packaging solutions with Global Sustainable Packaging Leader Michelle Bryson via a touchscreen display located at the center of the booth. On the opposing wall, visitors can learn how BW Packaging leverages the latest controls and digital technology – including the new FactoryTalk Optix by Rockwell – to innovate more efficient, user-friendly solutions.
In addition to the BW Packaging solutions, Hudson Sharp, a brand from the newly aligned BW Converting Solutions platform of Barry-Wehmiller companies will exhibit their Ares 400-SUP stand up pouch machine at booth S-2100. The BW Converting Solutions platform brings together five Barry-Wehmiller converting companies under a single solutions-driven platform for converting customers in the tissue, nonwovens, hygiene, bag converting, mailing, and printing industries.
