SOMIC Packaging to Showcase the Advantages of Retail-Ready Automation at PACK EXPO
This is an historic time for SOMIC Packaging. Since PACK EXPO Las Vegas was held one year ago, a combination of developments sparked growth that can be traced back to SOMIC’s heritage 424 machine series.
For SOMIC Packaging CEO Peter Fox, PACK EXPO represents an opportunity to show customers how the advantages of retail-ready automation with the latest technology available can address their needs.
The wraparound case packer that will be run in the Lakeside building at McCormick Place produces up to 25 cases per minute, utilizing what Fox describes as the ultimate in space-saving simplicity and ensuring a smooth operation.
“The fundamental driver to our growth is having the ability to configure our standard 424 machine platform to the unique needs of our customers. We’re using standard functional groups to achieve these requirements, not a new, one-off design,” Fox said.
“This gives our customers and us the flexibility to change for future needs. Our machines also can run standard case configurations to adapt to the demand for Retail-Ready systems. Besides showing people how this works at PACK EXPO, we’ve developed a new Buyers Guide that provides key information to begin this process. I think it will help open the door to conversations at the show,” he added.
