5 new packaging technologies ensure product safety

Lisa McTigue Pierce in Product Safety on January 31, 2017

Three inspection systems, one child-resistant closure and a new foil blister can safeguard your consumer or healthcare products—and you can see all five new products in person during the Packaging Innovation Tour next week at WestPack 2017 (Feb. 7-9; Anaheim, CA).

The online packaging community voted these five packaging technologies as the most innovative new products from 15 entries submitted by exhibitors at the show in the Packaging Digest WestPack 2017 Innovation Awards program. The five entries receiving the most votes have become our finalists. After completing the Packaging Innovation Tour, tour attendees will select the top winner and that exhibitor will be recognized as such in social media and with a certificate.

Come join us! The free Packaging Innovation Tour is scheduled for Thurs., Feb. 9, between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. It starts at Center Stage Booth 455 and will stop at these five booths:

1. See the 125mm-diameter squeeze-and-turn CR closure for laundry pods from The Plastek Group in Booth 5372.

2. See the FormFoil Lite Suture Package from Rollprint Packaging Products in Booth 5057.

3. See the Intuity Metal Detector from Sesotec Inc. in Booth 4943.

[UPDATE 2-9-17: WINNER OF THE MOST INNOVATIVE PACKAGING PRODUCT AT WESTPACK 2017!] 4. See CIVCore Software's Dot Print Tool for inspecting ink-jet and other variable codes from Mettler Toledo CI-Vision in Booth 5124.

5. See the XR75 X-ray inspection system from Anritsu Infivis Inc. in Booth 5016.

I’ll be your tour guide (Lisa Pierce, executive editor) and will explain how these packaging products represent or reflect existing and emerging consumer trends. No pre-registration for the tour is required; simply show up at Center Stage Booth 455 by 1:00 p.m. on Thurs., Feb. 9, and off we’ll go!
