San Rafael, CA (October, 8, 2021) – PAC Machinery, a leader in the flexible packaging industry reports that it had one of the most highly attended exhibits at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, the largest show for the packaging industry, produced by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. This was the first industry show since the outbreak of Covid19 halted in-person expos. PMMI says over 23,000 attendees, eager to find solutions to current challenges, engaged with over 1,500 exhibitors across four expansive halls in over 740,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space at the Las Vegas Convention Center September 27-29th. PAC Machinery ranked in the top 10 most visited exhibitor profiles pre-show on the EXPO website and received thousands of leads reporting that PAC’s exhibit was a busy throughout the three day show.

PAC showcased one of the most comprehensive ranges of equipment including over a dozen packaging machines including shrink and flow wrappers, vacuum sealers, automatic baggers, medical sealers and packaging equipment, as well as debuting new sustainable packaging solutions.

“Our team met in-person with hundreds of packaging automation prospects as well as quite a few existing customers from North America and abroad including smaller owner/operator businesses as well as large Fortune 100 companies, said Greg Berguig, VP of Sales & Marketing PAC Machinery. “We also met quite a few new distributors on the hunt for different types of packaging automation as well as our current distributors looking to expand opportunity with us,” Berguig said.

PAC Machinery customer, Paul Webb, Human Resources Director at Total Comm Inc. was looking for additional packaging machines at the show.  “With PAC Machinery, we drastically increased our capability and output and are able to keep up with sales demand for our products while we grow,” Webb said. “We have immediate needs for additional packaging equipment and love all the options PAC Machinery offers with a diverse product portfolio and it has been great working with them and look forward to buying more machines,” Webb said.

Other expo goers stopping at the PAC booth included a number of companies from the food industry looking for shrink wrapping bottles of olive oil, wrapping boxes of chocolate, flow wrapping produce, modified atmosphere packaging bags of dehydrated fruits and vegetables, and Nitrogen flushing bags of ground coffee. Industrial customers looking for poly bagging fasteners at high speed. Office Supply companies looking to shrink wrap packs of paper and pens. Many from the logistics & fulfillment industry looking to speed up the process of labeling and packing items into poly mailers, and many with a desire to make a switch to recycled material as well as curbside recyclable  paper, poly bagging and labeling items for spill containment in suffocation warning bags. One of the largest groups were looking for high speed wrapping and labeling of apparel for shipment in e-commerce and repackaging solutions. Other big markets included aerospace, medical packaging, firearms and ammunition, vacuum sealers for the Cannabis industry including solutions to package edibles, candy, flower, and gummies.

6800CS-XL-Fulfillment & OSARO robotics automationA huge draw for the booth was the exciting debut of the 6800CS-XL Fulfillment Wrapper paired with an industrial automation robot from the OSARO robotics company. The piece-picking solution seamlessly integrates with the 6800CS-XL Fulfillment Wrapper, from picking to packing. This solution enhances productivity and integrates the unmatched object recognition and robot control of OSARO’s pick-and-place software with PAC’s NEW automatic bagging machine for the fulfillment packaging industry. The 6800CS-XL Fulfillment Wrapper was also entered for a 2021 Pack Expo Technology Award being that it is now the fastest all-electric poly mailer bagging system on the market, with high speed bag forming, labeling, and sealing with the ability to wrap and label over 1,000 items/hr in poly mailer material for outbound shipping. The 6800CS-XL Fulfillment Wrapper is over 10x faster than hand packing in poly mailers and 3x faster than automatic bagging systems that use pre-opened bags. 

PAC also participated in the PACK TO THE FUTURE exhibit, a historical look at packaging machinery technological advancements throughout the years. PAC Machinery displayed the Audion Seal Master, one of the first impulse heat sealers developed by Berguig’s grandfather in the 1950’s and the foundation of what would become PAC Machinery, a leading global family owned and operated packaging equipment company with one of the most diverse ranges of equipment in the industry today.
