Technology surrounding robotics, modularity and hygiene design for food packaging equipment and more are some of the on-trend developments to be presented during an exclusive insider tour during PackEx Montreal later this month.
Interested in gaining industry insights while checking out new machinery in a conveniently prepackaged multi-booth tour with other packaging professionals? If so, please join us for a free tour during PackEx Montreal on Wed., Nov. 30 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The vendor managers from these select exhibitors will offer a debriefing of their latest offerings along with pointing to broader industry trends that these machines tap. We’ll set off in a small group from the CenterStage Booth #1625 to visit these exhibitors among others that are still being finalized at press time:
Multivac Canada Booth #1607 will be showcasing a complete “skin” packaging line reflective of growth in that market, according to Pat Laplante, the company’s marketing and sales support coordinator.
Machines on display also include two of the company’s most popular tray sealers and a double chamber vacuum packaging machine.
Premier Tech Chronos Booth #2307 will have a robotic modular palletizer in the booth (as seen in top lead photo). The main feature of this equipment is a modular design that can be easily adapted to different plant layouts. In fact, the entire system can be delivered to the production plant via modular skids all fitting onto a single trailer truck.
It is basically a pre-engineered machine which minimize manufacturing lead time, cost and time required for installation and commissioning.

VC999 Booth #1907 will feature a range of equipment highlighting trends in flow wrapping, thermoforming, metal detection, slicing and labeling (shown). Carl-Michel Cloutier, sales manager East Canada & distribution, reports that equipment will include vacuum chambers, tray sealers, flow wrapping machine, metal detector, rotary automatic bagger and portioner—on display for first time in a tradeshow in Canada—and a rollstock thermoforming machine.
Also, at least two other tours have been arranged during PackEx Montreal:
Wed., Nov. 30, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.: The Latest in Manufacturing Automation conducted by industry expert Jim Berretta; and
Thurs., Dec. 1, from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (noon): New Possibilities in Plastic Equipment & Materials led by Norbert Sparrow, editor in chief, PlasticsToday ; the tour includes five vendor stops.
