Interpack, taking place in May, is far more than just a packaging show. 2,700 exhibitors from more than 60 countries will present their latest ideas, innovative concepts and technological visions at Interpack – not only in equipment and machinery for packaging and processing, but also in production tools for packaging materials, materials themselves, and services for the entire industry. And this entire spectrum for all target groups: from food, beverages, confectionery and bakery to pharmaceutical, cosmetics, consumer goods (non-food), services and industrial goods. In 2011 alone, more than 166,000 trade visitors from 190 countries came to the show in Düsseldorf and made Interpack into an international meeting point for processing and packaging technology.
B&R Automation will again be heavily involved in Interpack 2014, and we wanted to share with you some of the innovations in packaging automation technology they will be sharing at the event. The newest B&R solutions for the packaging industry will be on display on May 8 – 14 at Interpack 2014 in Dusseldorf (Hall A6 / Booth E62).
B&R continues to push packaging machine performance to its physical limits. With reACTION and NetTime technology, B&R has reduced response times in industrial automation applications down to 1 µs, allowing extremely time-critical subprocesses to be managed using standard hardware within IEC 61131 requirements.
