As growth in the UK’s manufacturing sector continues to accelerate, industry professionals are poised to flock to this year’s PPMA Show 2014, the UK’s premier, free-to-attend complete production line event for processing and packaging machinery.

Now in its 27th year, the show has been recognised as the only UK event that attracts hundreds of machinery manufacturers and component suppliers across a wide range of industries including food, drink, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, dairy, snacks, construction and electronics.

Demonstrating the Future of Packaging Innovation

Attendees at the NEC in September will be able to view a number of exclusive machinery demonstrations.

Kliklok International, one of the world’s leading packaging machinery manufacturers, will be launching its new Certiwrap ELITE wraparound cartoning system on stand E32 at this year’s PPMA Show. Capable of improving functionality, repeatability and flexibility on the production line thanks to new modular infeeds which help manufacturers adapt to increasingly fast-paced market requirements, the ELITE can be tailored to different pack styles, sizes and formats.  It also features a choice of twin or triple arm carton feeders to improve handling and is designed to increase throughput rates on high-speed lines, being capable of packaging at speeds up to 300 cartons per minute dependant on product size.

Award-winning end-of-line automation specialist Endoline Machinery will address the need for packing speed and flexibility with the launch of their latest SMART machines – including the UK debut of the 744 Fully Automatic Random Case Sealer on stand D30, believed to be the fastest of its type in the world.

Interactive demonstrations will also be available over on stand B40 where Olympus Automation will demonstrate its Steam Infusion™ technology, a new low-risk cooking process that heats, mixes and cooks liquid based food products quickly and efficiently.

Finally, Pacepacker Services, the award winning automation expert, will be showcasing the widest range of pick and place solutions on the market on stand C50. Six different pick and place systems will demonstrate the innovative ways to handle a variety of unpackaged and packaged FMCG goods. As well as Pacepacker’s own equipment, robot technology from FANUC and Festo will also be on show.

Speakers Under the Spotlight
