The Packaging & Processing event
Great day out for Uptime Consultant at PPMA catching up with old and new contacts!
If we are available this is always a show that is on the fixture list for us to visit.
Great to catch up with contacts from Yamato, Ishida, Flo Mech, Schneider and OEE Systems.
We usually head for the weighing and packaging as it takes us back to our roots with some vivid flashbacks of shifts spent battling banks of TNAs and Ishidas, interesting to see how some of these have now developed vision systems which for me is adding too much complexity to an already sophisticated asset.
This year there was a massive choice of multi-head weighers compared with previous years, there seems to be a glut of them in the marketplace at the moment.
It was also interesting to see the amount of 'pick and place' options with many manufacturers, new to me was the offering from Schneider with their modularised integrated solution.
If you are interested in Packaging or Processing then this show is one for your diary for 2020.
