Fallsdell, insignia and ITW Zip-Pak are the latest to sign on to exhibit at AUSPACK PLUS 2011, the largest biennial packaging, processing and plastics machinery and materials exhibition for Australia and New Zealand to be held at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre from March 22 to 25, 2011.

Insignia has been exhibiting at AUSPACK PLUS for over a decade and considers the show to be its flagship trade exhibition. “Insignia chooses to focus on AUSPACK PLUS as we find it provides us with an audience who are a good fit with our business. The alternating schedule between Melbourne and Sydney also provides us with an opportunity to present to the different states,” said Andy Hecke, national sales and marketing manager.

“In our industry it is always a challenge to demonstrate our machinery to our potential customers due to their size and set up so AUSPACK PLUS is a great opportunity for customers to come along to see and touch our machines, in particularly our Domino print systems. In 2011 we are particularly excited about showcasing our continuation with Domino and their new products as well as introducing our revolutionary new Bixolon range of desktop and portable label printers.”

George Stam, managing director, Fallsdell Machinery, said the up-coming AUSPACK PLUS will give his company a great opportunity to showcase its high quality equipment and the overseas agencies that it represents, such as I.Holland, Flexicon, Dr Schleuniger, CI Electronics and Zoatec, to a wide range of different customers.

According to Glenn Woodworth, ITW Zip-Pak Australia is participating in AUSPACK PLUS 2011 to showcase the range of over 500 different zips that ITW Zip-Pak manufactures across its seven plants.

“We run our zips on many different packaging machines and offer a range of zips to suit the package design, films used, machines packed on, product packed, method of filling, method of dispensing, the presentation required and the price level desired,” Woodworth said.

ITW Zip-Pak will be showing a variety of new packages and zips from overseas markets and promoting its retrofitting systems division which can supply a kit to retrofit most packaging machines.
