AUSPACK PLUS organisers have announced the trade show has sold out and all of the floor space is completely occupied for the 2013 exhibition.
With four weeks still to go until the show, this year has the largest amount of exhibitors in the event’s history.
Event manager Luke Kasprzak said visitors can expect to see over 1100 brands and 302 individual exhibitors, including 76 internationals; the largest amount the exhibition has had under one roof.
The show brings together buyers and sellers, who exhibit products and services vital to delivering production line solutions for packaging and processing industries in the Australasian region.
A new product in show will be the 37 millimetre composite closure, which is used on chicken or fruit essence products.
The A&RT Robot, a newly developed robot palletised designer to automate the handling of packaged products, will also be highlighted.
Its adaptive gripper mimics the movement of a fish’s tail fin to lightly handle delicate materials, unevenly shaped workpieces or components vulnerable to pressure.
Other products include the A-72AO Side Sealed Pallet Strapping Machine for securing package loading on the pallet by vertical PP band or PET strapping, and the BioFlex F1130 and Bioflex F2110, a biodegradable compound for extrusion made from PLA and co-polyester.
The trade show has gradually expanded to the processing and plastics sectors since beginning in 1985.
This year the show is heading to the Sydney Showgrounds at Sydney Olympic Park from May 7th – 10th.
The exhibition is owned and presented by the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA).
Registration is free to all trade visitors.
