Pro Mach Features at Pack Expo a One-Stop-Shop for End of Line Packaging Solutions
ALEXANDRIA, MN — The Pro Mach End of Line Group, powered by Pro Mach, brings to Pack Expo in Chicago, November 6-9, the largest group of brands – 11 total associated with case and tray forming, packing and sealing, bagging, bundling, shrink wrapping, stretch wrapping, and palletizing – in the company’s history. (Contiguous Booths in the South Hall #’s 3738, 3742, 3748, 3832, 3836, and 3842)
In addition to information about individual machines, Pro Mach staffers will detail for show attendees the company’s turnkey – filler to palletizer – integration services. These services feature one point of contact and the convenience of a single purchase order for turnkey end of line systems. Customers experience fast, trouble-free startup and best-in-class training, documentation, operational safety, and aftermarket support through the Pro Mach ProCustomer® program.
“No matter what type of products Pack Expo attendees want to process through their packaging lines, we’re able to provide the machines and expertise for a high speed, fast changeover end of line solution,” said Gary Evans, Senior Vice President End of Line Packaging Group, Pro Mach. “Importantly, meeting with us at Pack Expo gives attendees the opportunity to learn and ask questions about our approach to turnkey integration – an approach that lowers risk, reduces internal engineering overhead, and results in dramatically shortened startup.”
The Pro Mach brands supplying end of line solutions include: Brenton Engineering, case packing; Currie by Brenton, palletizing; DEKKA Industries, tape heads and systems; Edson Packaging Machinery, case packing; IPak Machinery, tray forming; Orion Packaging, stretch wrapping; Rennco, bagging systems; Texwrap and Tekkra shrink and bundling systems; and Wexxar/BEL, case forming and erecting.
Brenton Engineering, for example, showcases a live demonstration of an integrated medical device line that starts with a collaborative robot, loading syringes shaped like pens into an Ossid, powered by Pro Mach, form-fill-seal machine and ends with sealed cases being palletized by a six-axis robot. Highlights of the integrated live demo include a collaborative robot from Universal Robots loading the form-fill-seal machine, a six-axis Fanuc robot that not only case packs but also palletizes, and one of the world’s first applications of an Industry 4.0 smart conveyor developed by Festo and Siemens, jointly integrated for the show by Brenton and Festo.
Orion Packaging will feature a new generation of automatically guided shrink wrappers for today’s distribution centers looking for the maximum in flexibility. Rennco will showcase a new high speed servo controlled bagging machine, the first of a new generation. Edson displays its Raptor high speed top-load case packers, now featuring the latest servo motors from Schneider, and is integrated into an Ethernet-based motion system. Among other attributes, this intelligent servo system does not require re-homing after emergency stops and shut downs for fast startup.
Wexxar/BEL, Dekka, and IPak will show tray and case formers, as well as case erectors and sealers. Of particular note will be a BEL semi-automatic form, pack, and seal unitized system, along with Wexxar’s new WISE smart maintenance system. At the Texwrap and Tekkra joint exhibit, new side, centerline, and vertical seal shrink wrappers, as well as a high speed bundler with industry leading seal bar technology, will be featured.
