Barry-Wehmiller Packaging Systems has told Pack Expo attendees to “expect more” with the launch of new equipment on its stand in Chicago.

Stand S-2100 will include companies from across the BW Packaging Systems range: Accraply, BW Flexible Systems (formerly Hayssen Flexible Systems and Thiele Technologies), BW Integrated Systems (formerly BW Container Systems and Thiele Technologies), Pneumatic Scale Angelus and Synerlink, plus another Barry-Wehmiller company, Design Group.

New equipment on display includes the Simionato Doy Zip 380 VFFS machine, previously only available in Europe; the Hudson-Sharp 750 TAP machine; and the Pneumatic Scale Angelus CB100 canning line.

Carol O’Neill, president of BW Packaging Systems Group, will also be part of a panel at the Packaging and Processing Women’s Leadership Network breakfast on Tuesday October 16. She says BW is out to raise the bar for clients.

“Our theme this year is ‘Expect More’ because we really think you should expect more from your packaging equipment partner,” O’Neill said.

According to O’Neill, BW Packaging Systems offers more than just single machines and complete lines.

‘“We also have the ability to completely integrate your packaging system, we have process and inspection solutions, we have intuitive and intelligent OEE systems, and a global support team that can help take care of all your needs around the world.

“Beyond that, we have a dedicated culture of service within our company of people who care. We want you to expect more of us because we strive to deliver more,” she said.

Pack Expo International will be held in Chicago, Illinois, from October 14-17.
