From 8-14 May in Düsseldorf, Rockwell Automation will showcase 215 new packaging machines running on its automation, motion, process and safety solutions.
In today’s competitive environment, the packaging industry is demanding innovative machines that easily integrate into plant-wide infrastructures. It needs flexible and efficient equipment that increases business agility, optimises productivity and helps end users to achieve sustainability objectives – all while lowering total cost of ownership.
At this year’s event, Rockwell Automation will be helping to foster and formalise relationships between machine builders and manufacturers by acting as a conduit to match customer needs with new and proven, high performance solutions from a variety of established machine builders.
In addition, the company will showcase the latest technology along with multimedia presentations showing this technology in action across the globe. Industry specialists will also be on hand to discuss customer needs at all stages in the production chain.
This approach from Rockwell Automation mirrors the official objective of the event: The entire value creation chain from production and refinement of packaging products and packaging materials, through packaging and distribution, up to quality assurance and consumer protection.
