WestPack Shows Off Packaging Automation Technologies

Gallery-WestPack Shows Off Packaging Automation Technologies

Come to WestPack 2022 to find your packaging automation solutions.
Systems that create popular flexible primary packages, as well as boost the output of secondary packaging applications, can be seen in person.

If you are like many product manufacturers in the United States, labor shortages, skills gaps, and other production challenges are making it hard for you to deliver needed volumes. One solution is to increase the output of your packaging lines by incorporating more automation.

For three days this month, April 12-14, you can see a variety of systems and technologies on display at the WestPack 2022 show in Anaheim, Calif. — including these seven semi- and fully automated packaging machines that can help you get your production numbers up.
