Where packaging machinery developments multiply

Where packaging machinery developments multiply
Axon sleever.

Pack Expo East was the place to be last week including in Pro Mach’s machinery- and innovation-packed booth that showcased improvements in coding, sleeving and wrapping systems among the company’s 25 brands.

My colleague Lisa Pierce uncovered quite a few “integrated” developments during her visit to the Pro Mach booth at Pack Expo in November, a tour that highlighted (in alpha order) the company’s Brenton, Kleenline, Matrix, Shuttleworth and WexxarBel divisions.  A more recent tour, at WestPack earlier this month, centered on the machinery builder’s Dekka, ID Technology and Matrix brands.

It turned out that the company, which has an ever-growing portfolio as of this writing of 25 packaging brands, served up additional innovations last week at Pack Expo East in Philadelphia. I discovered that during my booth tour led by John Eklund, Pro Mach’s vp marketing.

What you’ll find in the associated Slideshow gallery are three machines located on various parts of packaging lines that each bring something different to the table in their respective markets of coding, sleeving and stretch wrapping. What I found of particular interest was that Eklund pointed to a renewed emphasis on patent-driven developments from this expansive machinery builder that will better secure the company’s growing portfolio of intellectual property.
