Although the show is some way off, exhibitors are already planning major launches for PACKTECH 2013. The two day show co-located with PACKAGING INNOVATIONS, taking place 27 & 28 February at the NEC Birmingham, will showcase the latest in machinery and technology.

Designed for use in a wide range of packaging applications, from food and beverage, to pharmaceutical, agrochemical and household, the Super Seal™ Touch can be used as a stand-alone line-side unit or be fully integrated into a continuous filling and capping line.
