With AUSPACK PLUS expanding the exhibition to cater for packaging, processing and plastics machinery and materials plastics companies are signing on to exhibit in 2011.

With a theme ‘Out of the Box’, the 2011 exhibition will be expanded to enable processing, plastics and production line companies to showcase their solutions under one roof, alongside packaging and processing machinery.

Recent plastics companies to book their exhibition stands include A&J Australia, Corex, Sonoco and Viscount Plastics.

According to Carl Solomons, sales manager for A&J Australia 2011 will be the first time for the company to exhibit at AUSPACK PLUS.

“A&J Australia has never exhibited before and we thought that AUSPACK PLUS would provide an opportunity for us to raise our profile for our innovative products in rigid plastic packaging, flexible packaging and pallet wrapping machinery,” Solomons said.

“Our new innovation, which we will be showcasing at AUSPACK PLUS 2011 is ‘Titonwrap’, which is an A&J manufactured product, is designed to reduce the cost to wrap a pallet.

“Titonwrap has many benefits, for Occupational Health & Safety; including being light to handle. There is no need to stretch it and applying tension excites the film to shrink. Reinforced edges ensure excellent holding power, and there is more yield per unit. Most importantly we believe that the Titonwrap offers a 20% to 30% reduction in cost per metre vs. conventional wraps.”

A&J Australia has also designed a new fully-auto wrapper series that will be launched at AUSPACK PLUS. The Titonwrap AP series is designed for pre-stretch and non pre-stretch wrapping.

AUSPACK PLUS will be heading to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from Tuesday the 22nd through to Friday the 25th of March 2011.

It is an Australasian International multi-platform exhibition of packaging, processing and plastics machinery, materials and associated technology.

AUSPACK PLUS showcases solutions for all industries that require packaging for food, beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical and industrial manufacturing.
