I’ve been attending Pack Expo since 1984 and it never gets old. There is always something new to see. It is always an education.

I could fill an entire book with interesting things I discovered at the recently concluded Pack Expo 2022. The old standards were all there, better than ever, most with improvements to their tried-and-true designs.

It’s the new stuff that always catches my attention, though. Here are seven new products you’ve got to see.

1. HMI Makes This Labeling System So Smart
2. Collaborative Robot Stretches Its Capabilities
3. New Designs Innovate Packaging Machine Power and Control
4. Desktop Labeler Nails Small Runs
5. Robotic Glue Applicator Customizes Patterns to Save Adhesive
6. Adjustable Starwheels Save Changeover Downtime
7. QR Code on Sensor Simplifies Parts Ordering
