The UK’s leading packaging technology event, Empack, will return to Birmingham’s NEC on the 28th February & 1st March 2018. The two-day event will offer a unique opportunity for decision makers from major brands, converters and retailers to discover the latest technological advances in logistics and transit packaging, packaging machinery, robotics and automation. The show will also offer visitors the opportunity to get hands-on with a range of new products, with many exhibitors choosing to launch their latest innovations live on the showfloor.

Paper and cardboard packaging manufacturers, Graficas Salaet, will be launching two new products at the show. Its new Black Pizza Plate and its Step and Twist Tulip Cups. Also on show will be its extensive range of packaging for the food industry including baking cups, paper bags, trays, cake boxes and boards.

Automated Packaging Systems will launch its new AirPouch delivery system at the show.

The system utilises the AirPouch Express 3 machine to inflate AirPouch material on site.

Developed in partnership with the University of Lincoln in a retailer led initiative, APRIL EYE uses artificial intelligence to read back and verify date codes, preventing product recalls related to the incorrect application of date codes. By removing human error from the supply chain, APRIL EYE reduces food waste related to the incorrect date coding of products.
