Automated Packaging Systems will launch three new products at PPMA (Stand C51 Hall 5); the NEW Autobag HD-E bagger for the medical sector; the NEW FAS SPrint Revolution which is designed to bag fresh and frozen food in wash-down environments; and its NEW protective packaging system, the AirPouch FastWrap.
The bagging specialists have brought new films and bagging materials to the market in 2011 which it will be featuring on the stand too. Medical paper bags-on-a-roll, for example, have represented a new challenge, combining PE films with specialist paper to meet the specific needs of products requiring terminal sterilisation by either ETO or Gamma Radiation.
On a PPMA stand packed with innovations, Automated Packaging Systems will also unveil its NEW range of EarthAware films for the UK and Europe, highlighting an ongoing commitment to reducing its own carbon footprint and helping customers to pack more sustainably in the future.
Stand C 51 in Hall 5 will feature every one of the company’s new products and materials alongside those on which it has built its reputation for quality and reliability. Its flagship system, the AB 180, will be ready and waiting to bag samples as the Automated Packaging Systems team invites visitors to take the 10-minute Autobag challenge. They’ll demonstrate how systems works to save time and money and increase productivity, give visitors an insight into their impact on customer operations, and invite them to answer the question they pose every prospective customer: "What will you bag with yours?".
"The bagging solutions we provide are of the highest quality and reliability," explains Managing Director Peter Wylie. "That’s our overriding commitment to all our customers and we will be demonstrating just what that means in practice to PPMA visitors."
2011 has seen Automated Packaging Systems invest in facilities, team and infrastructure too, and more investment is planned for the coming years as it increases production capacity to keep pace with demand.
Despite the challenging economic conditions which it has faced alongside its customers, the company reports that 2011 has been an excellent year. Mr Wylie attributes the company’s success to its customer focus and to the commitment of a talented production team, engineers, service personnel, customer support and sales people and the business service personnel that support them.
