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.

Enercon Industries (stand B3) is exhibiting the industry’s first multi-language and multi-functional touch screen induction sealer. 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.

Bagging and protective packaging specialists Automated Packaging Systems (stand A22) will unveil its new ESD (Electro Static Discharge) Bags-on-a-Roll at the show. The bags protect sensitive electronic devices from product-damaging electrostatic fields.

KBW Packaging (stand B14) is in the process of developing an AF0020 Auto, a two head automatic liquid filling machine, which will bridge the gap between the current AF0020 semi-automatic bench-top and the fully automatic AF 0040 Liquid Filling Machine. Visitors will be able to hear the latest on this crucial new development. They will also be able to see its AK0002 Capping Machine, AF 0010 Liquid Filling and AC1000 Tablet Counting Machines.

Yorkshire Packaging Systems (stand A16) will be exhibiting its low cost palletising solution designed specifically for low and medium speed packing operations which are traditionally not catered for and struggle to find a cost effective option. In addition the company will highlight its full complement of shrink wrappers from its range of semi automatic combination unit ‘L’ sealers and shrink tunnels as well as its fully automatic ‘L’ sealer and shrink tunnel.

New technologies will also be unveiled by KTEC GROUP (stand A11), which will be showing off its very latest full colour digital label printers.
