Kollmorgen will be exhibiting its family of high-performance motion systems, components and services in booth 7566 at PACK EXPO 2012, from October 28 – 31, 2012, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Visitors to the booth can expect live and interactive demos that illustrate how Kollmorgen motion control solutions and packaging expertise can help OEMs build superior machines with a distinct and measurable competitive advantage.
Live demos will include a dispensing machine to illustrate the precise and simple motion needed in all types of automated machines, from drink machines to vertical form/fill/seal machines. "Unwind-punch-wind" machines will illustrate precise camming between two dynamically changing spools of material and a rotary hole punch-and-die. A washdown IP69K demo will feature stainless steel servomotors that simplify machine design, component integration, installation, cleaning and sanitizing, and even microbial swab down testing – running real-time in a simulated environment of moving water.
In addition to the live in-booth demos, PACK EXPO attendees should plan to be at the PACK EXPO Innovation Stage in the Grand Concourse from 11:30 a.m. – noon on Monday, October 29, 2012, for an in-depth presentation by Kollmorgen on how motion technology is bringing significant innovation to the processing and packaging machine market.
