Orion and Texwrap made a great showing as two of the ProMach Robotics and End-of-Line brands at PACK EXPO International last month.
More than 44,000 attendees came out to see the 2,200+ exhibitors spread out over the 1.2 million net square feet at McCormick Place in Chicago. It was great to experience the crowds and enthusiasm return to the Windy City!
The Orion team was happy to see high levels of traffic and interest in its stretch wrapping solutions. Attendees saw the S-Carriage InstaThread Pre-stretch Film Carriage, which saves 15% on film per load, in action as it demonstrated its 180° of film contact and reduced slippage and neckdown. Interactive animations of Orion’s massive MA-DX LoPro Drag Chain Conveyor and Rotary Tower Automatic (RTC) stretch wrappers provided attendees with an in-depth view of how the machines can provide inventive end-of-line solutions. In addition, Orion was able to showcase its newly improved turntables, which now utilize ring bearings to up the weight limit to 6,000 pounds.
As for Texwrap, the debut of its new Kayat SRX Series Single Roll Bundler was a big hit. This new solution is a collaborative effort with Bartelt, a fellow ProMach brand. The Kayat SRX Series comes with toolless adjustable wrap bar assembly, easy access to film feed and cut, superior film sealing and control, adjustable tunnel side and bottom air and dual roll film mandrels. All great features that were well received. Texwrap also featured interactive animations of a complete Pizza Solution, Canister Solution and Mini-Bottle Multipack Solution.
Cheers to a great week in Chicago, and both brands will plan to see you next September at Pack Expo Las Vegas!
