Food processing, packaging, and inspection equipment supplier Heat and Control will offer a live demonstration of its New Horizon control and information system at Pack Expo in Chicago.

Chris Farver, Heat and Control’s global director of controls and information controls, will present New Horizon at Pack Expo Chicago, at 4pm on Monday October 15.

According to Heat and Control, New Horizon strikes a balance between simple interfaces, which may not have all the information an operator needs, with complicated displays that can overwhelm with information.

“New Horizon delivers the most essential information to help operators and maintenance personnel succeed. It features a clear touchscreen display and an intuitive interface that can quickly and thoroughly be understood and correctly operated,” the company said.

The displays are focused on operator usability, giving clear information on machine performance to achieve optimal results, says Heat and Control.

“The touchscreen contains only relevant information and straightforward language and icons; bold colors are used sparingly.”

Aside from New Horizon, Heat and Control will display a number of hardware solutions at its stand #N-5910, including a bagmaker and a casepacker from Ishida, CEIA and Ishida inspection systems, conveyors, processing equipment, and weighing and filling solutions.

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