Packaging machine buyers and builders alike want to lean their operations, streamline supply chains, conserve energy, fulfill sustainability initiatives and collaborate with specialists who understand their businesses.

Those are the kinds of solutions people come to PACK EXPO to find.  They come to see machinery running, talk face to face potential partners, and see what’s new.

It’s like test driving a car. You can pick all your options online and come up with your short list of where you want to buy -- but eventually you need to get behind the wheel.

This show preview issue of Packaging Automation will steer you toward some of the show’s highlights. Such as:

• From Brenton Engineering (C-4425) a new robotic case packer designed designed for companies that are just outgrowing hand packing
• From Schneider Electric/ELAU (C-3002) an all-new 3-axis delta robot with 50% greater payload capacity than the industry standard
• From IMA Nova (C-1819) a combination of the best in American and European machine design

Packaging Automation’s sponsor, Schneider Electric, will be introducing ‘one’ solution for packaging automation. They’re integrating ELAU, a real phenomenon that burst onto the North American packaging scene ten years ago, with a complete machine automation solution and worldwide presence to do all those things discussed in our first paragraph.

Since the show is early and the economy has begun to show signs of recovery, we anticipate that CPGs to pull the trigger on deferred projects to get new products to market in time for renewed consumer spending in 2010.
