Pack Expo Comes East

For the first time ever The Association of Packaging and Processing Technologies, PMMI, will be hosting Pack Expo East in response to demand for an East Coast location. The expo will be held in Philadelphia, PA from February 16th through the 18th and is a great opportunity for companies that were unable to attend Pack Expo in Chicago to come and interact with other packaging professionals in a variety of markets, including pharmaceutical, medical devices, food and beverage, personal care, and electronics. The tradeshow expects over 4,000 attendees and will have more than 300 exhibitors, including PAC Strapping.

We’ll be located at booth 761 and we will be unveiling our latest projects, including our new line of polyester cord strapping, which has been in development for a year as well as some of our newest strapping machines, which received a lot of positive feedback at the Pack Expo in Chicago. We encourage all of our East Coast clients to register for the show now and visit our booth to see our new products in action.

New Strapping Equipment from PAC Strapping

You may remember from our last post before Pack Expo that we mentioned we’d be bringing a couple new items to showcase to attendees. We wanted to talk a little bit more about our products for those who weren’t able to make it to the show. We are very pleased with the feedback we are receiving so far on our new pallet packaging systems.

The SM 65 Strapping Machine is an automatic machine designed to operate at fast speeds (up to 65 straps per minute) and will give you jam free performance. The SM65 is available in a painted version, and also a stainless steel version. The stainless model is ideal for meat, produce, and seafood environments this piece of equipment comes loaded with features and is extremely user-friendly.

We also unveiled our stainless steel side seal SM 60 Strapping Machine. This strapping machine can operate at up to 60 straps per minute and features an LCD display and waist high feeding system. Users can operate this machine as a stand-alone piece of equipment or easily integrate it into an existing system. The SM60 is also available in a stainless version for wet and corrosive environments.

In the show, we also featured a new pallet strapper. The new PSS703 Series is a cost effective pallet strapper with advanced features. Among the many optional configurations are both horizontal and vertical strappers. Features include an indexing strap head, floating strap head, and the option of pallet void feeders to thread the strap though your pallet.
