All five BW Packaging Systems companies—Accraply, BW Flexible Systems, BW Integrated Systems, Pneumatic Scale Angelus, and Synerlink—will be present at PACK EXPO. Design Group, part of Barry-Wehmiller’s Engineering and IT Consulting Platform, will also be represented.
BW Packaging Systems’ theme for this PACK EXPO is “Expect More,” highlighting the core belief that a complete packaging solution provides not only industry-leading equipment and technologies, but also the necessary integration, training, service and support required to help customers fully realize the value of their investment.
“We say we want customers to ‘Expect More’ because we really do,” said Carol O’Neill, BW Group President, Packaging. “No matter if you want a single piece of equipment from one of our companies, or a fully integrated line, we have a solution for you.”
O’Neill pointed out that the combined might of the Barry-Wehmiller packaging companies is a more than $700 million business, offering customers comprehensive solutions from an extensive portfolio of brands that are considered the most reliable and trusted in packaging.
“I’m looking forward to many meaningful conversations at this year’s PACK EXPO event,” O’Neill said. “We’re in a unique position to be a long-term partner for our clients. Our continued growth means we can truly offer customers a full spectrum of packaging capabilities, with quality service to back up our equipment and support our clients for years to come.”
O’Neill and all of the BW Packaging Systems company presidents will be present at the booth throughout PACK EXPO and will be available to engage with both the press and packaging professionals.

Additionally, in this year’s booth, BW Packaging Systems will exhibit a variety of equipment and technologies to showcase its ability to address requirements across the entire packaging line. Among other machines from its portfolio, Pneumatic Scale Angelus will display a filler/seamer combination that leverages the strengths of its flagship Hema and Angelus brands, well-known for their strengths in robust construction, hygienic design and production flexibility. This particular machine configuration includes electronic synchronization between the servo drives on the Hema filler and the Angelus seamer. For Pneumatic Scale Angelus’ customers, no mechanical linkage between these two components means big savings on parts and components.
Accraply will exhibit the Accraply 100 pressure-sensitive labeler along with a Graham & Sleevit DF60 tamper-evident shrink sleeve applicator. This configuration is a cost-effective solution that is able to accurately label even the most difficult applications. Toolless changeovers make these machines quick to configure—ideal to meet the demands of fast-moving production lines.
