A new dimension to end-of-line packaging machinery will soon begin when Somic America, Inc. unleashes the SOMIC-FLEXX III at PACK EXPO International 2018.
This modular machine is an intriguing solution to North American retail packaging challenges. SOMIC-FLEXX III is a new concept that combines the ability to pack primary packages in a flat, nested position or a standing display orientation.
The machine also is designed to utilize both single or multi-component packaging: one-piece corrugated blanks for standard wraparound shipping cases and two-piece tray and hood for retail ready presentations. It does so by offering the utmost in adaptability and impressive speed, along with the latest generation of industrial automation from Rockwell Automation and UL-certified components.
"Our new machine provides CPG’s with the flexibility to meet a variety of retailers’ packaging demands," said Peter Fox, Senior Vice President of Sales for Somic America. "Stand-up pouches, flow packs, rigid containers and other items can be collated, grouped and packed in a wide variety of formats. This includes open or wraparound trays, to paperboard cartons and trays with covers. With the development of this machine, we have delivered the ultimate in packaging flexibility and further expanded the SOMIC success story in North America."
