Packaging Innovation at West Pack and Pack Expo East

It was great to see so many familiar and new faces at the West Pack show in Anaheim. The strong growth in packaging is exciting and we look forward to meeting the evolving challenges in the packaging industry.

It is clear that the American packaging industry is booming with opportunities to integrate automation and robotics. According to PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, the estimated sales of industrial robots is $3.5 billion in North America. The escalating demands for technologies include EOAT (End of Arm Tooling, or gripping technology), Cobots, easy programming, easy set-up, flexibility, and artificial intelligence.

We will be exhibiting our newest packaging components at Pack Expo East in Philadelphia, March 3-5! Our engineering team is finalizing a plastic handle that can be employed on a fully automated production line. This handle can be fed to a robot with one or multiple gripping arms or it can be installed manually for hybrid assembly processes. At the Expo, Allen Field’s packaging specialists are going to demonstrate this exciting new product!
