PACK EXPO presentations geared to help improve manufacturing operations

Professionals who attend this year’s PACK EXPO International in Chicago, from 14th – 17th October, can learn about the latest smart manufacturing techniques aimed at delivering value across the enterprise.

This year, Rockwell Automation will conduct a series of presentations and demonstrations for end users, machine and equipment builders in packaging and related industries to share the most recent innovations in independent cart technology, analytics and network security.

Rockwell Automation subject matter specialists will present at the PACK EXPO International and Healthcare Packaging EXPO Innovation Stages, featuring the following topics: Smart Flexible Manufacturing; Advanced Technology in Life Sciences; Analytics for Delivering Business Value in Industrial IoT; and Cybersecurity in Manufacturing Operations.

“At PACK EXPO International, attendees can learn how they can leverage analytics to help generate increased productivity and flexibility in their operations,” said Steve Mulder, OEM packaging and segment leader, Rockwell Automation. “We look forward to sharing the latest in automation technology and offering new solutions for machine designers and end users.”

Attendees can also visit booth E-8043 to see the iTRAK and MagneMover Lite motion control systems from Rockwell Automation. Designed for the precise movement, positioning and tracking of loads, these modular, scalable motion control systems can increase throughput and efficiency in applications such as packaging, pharmaceutical manufacturing, sterile and aseptic filling, lab automation and medical device manufacturing.

In conjunction with its participation in PACK EXPO International, Rockwell Automation is a title sponsor of the PACK Gives BACK benefit event on 15th October, featuring Chicago-based comedian Sebastian Maniscalco. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to the PACK EXPO scholarship program, which supports students pursuing advanced degrees in packaging or processing at PMMI partner schools.
