Register NOW for the southern hemisphere’s leading processing and packaging event, 26-29 March!

The latest technology, leading-edge solutions, time-saving services … AUSPACK 2019 will be a powerhouse of answers for processing and packaging businesses looking to improve their competitiveness and bottom line, with many new products released.

“2019 will be such an exciting exhibition for AUSPACK. This year is the largest floor space ever, and exhibition space on the show floor still sold six months before the event,” said Anne-Marie Mina, Marketing Director of show organiser Exhibitions & Trade Fairs (ETF).”

She said many exhibitors will be releasing and demonstrating new products. Just a handful include:

• Using robotics? Check out Axelent Australia’s new range of pedestrian protection (stand C115)
Workplace-safety leader Axelent will launch a new range of pedestrian barriers, which can be used when working with robots and is ideal for food, beverage, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, transport and logistics. The McCue range is designed to protect pedestrians, machines, forklifts, racking and facilities. The pedestrian barriers and partitioning systems are designed for any industry that has a warehouse, logistics centre, manufacturing facility, pedestrian or forklift zone. The McCue range’s extensive variety of solutions protects everything from wall perimeters, racking, posts, bollards, guard rails, frames off areas, creates traffic lanes and separates equipment from pedestrians. This flexible, easy-to-install range is designed for areas that need an extra level of protection, and with easy-to-cut polymers, it can be adapted to any facility.

• SIAT ProWrap Industry 4.0 stretch-wrapping solution (stand B150)
End-of-line packaging machine specialist CPS will launch the new SIAT ProWrap, a PLC programmable stretch-wrapping solution with fully automatic wrapping cycle and Industry 4.0 capabilities. Allowing fast pallet processing and with the ability to pre-stretch up to 400%, the SIAT ProWrap can optimise and track accurate film consumption, and can increase the stability wrapped loads via the option of having different amounts of film in different areas of the pallet. Together, this avoids wasting film and gives higher film savings and the assurance of load protection during transportation. Its Industry 4.0 capabilities mean the SIAT ProWrap saves resources and time, by giving users an ability to remotely supervise machine productivity (up to 30 pallets/hour), working time and film consumption. Resistant to heavy-duty environments (-20 deg C), the SIAT ProWrap has a new versatile, scalable turntable semi-automatic wrapping machine for intensive and demanding stretch film applications. CPS is the exclusive SIAT carton sealers and wrappers agent in Australia and New Zealand.

• ESKO’s new Langguth labeller (stand B170)
ESKO Australia will show a Langguth labeller that combines an inline self-adhesive labeller for round-bodied containers with placement of a self-adhesive label on the lids. The labeller is designed and manufactured by German company Langguth, which specialises in labelling for wet cold glue, hot-melt, self-adhesive or a combination. Along with Langguth, ESKO Australia will have delegates from other major European food processing & packaging system equipment suppliers that it represents, including Waldner, Steriflow, OMAG, CT Pack and IMBALL, who are experiencing strong market presence in Australia and New Zealand.

• New metal detection & checkweigh combination from Matthews (stand D140)
Matthews will be demonstrating a brand-new, flexible, highly cost-effective combination metal detector and checkweigher unit. Rather than two devices wired in, each with its own conveyor, the new combination unit has both devices mounted on the same frame, saving space and being more cost effective. This new system will appeal to companies producing goods under major supermarket-chain home brands, with the metal detection and checkweighing requirements easily complied with in the one unit. The system’s large colour screen makes operation simple and minimises training as the machine quickly guides operators through set-up. Results can be viewed live on-screen and exported to a PC for recording. Also at AUSPACK, Matthews will be announcing a new strategic alignment in the ANZ packaging, labelling and printing markets, to provide unique hardware and software integration services in robust solutions for printers and converters looking for “greener products”, efficient short-run production and the ability to quickly drive ideas to market.

ETF’s Ms Mina said, “Showing the true value of AUSPACK to visitors, after 2017 – which was the largest Sydney event to date – there was some great feedback: more than half the visitors over the four days said AUSPACK was the only industry show that they needed to attend, with over 90% satisfied with the technology on display. This shows the priority that exhibitors place on having leading-edge solutions at AUSPACK.

“So make sure you register now to attend the southern hemisphere’s leading processing and packaging exhibition. Just sign up on line: it’s easy and registration is free!”
