Visitor number “cracks” the 175,000 mark

Sensational Atmosphere at interpack 2014

interpack 2014 was characterised by an outstanding atmosphere prevailing amongst the approx. 2,700 exhibitors and 175,000 visitors in the 19 halls of the completely booked Düsseldorf Exhibition Centre.

Sensational Atmosphere Visitor number “cracks” the 175,000 mark.

Components for Processing & Packaging

Components for Processing & Packaging

Components will present all components up to complete systems and integrated automation solutions for the packaging industry. It will be the platform for comprehensive information about products, innovations and current trends in the development and design of packaging machines.

Packaging-Components Components for Processing and Packaging In parallel with interpack 2014!

Drive Technology

Drive Technology

Criteria for choosing an appropriate drive principle are output, installed size, reliability, cost, safety and energy efficiency. Individual requirements in each case determine whether pneumatic or electric drive solutions will be deployed.

Drive Technology Drive Technology Electric drives, linear drives, servo drives, pneumatic drives

Material Handling Technology

Material Handling Technology

Thanks to intelligent sensors, grippers can handle highly sensitive products such as chocolates, biscuits or other delicate baked goods in rapid pick-and-place applications – they can even perfectly execute the looping motion required to make pretzels.

Platform for components and automation solutions – specifically for the packaging industry

Packaging equipment and packaging materials manufacturers, as well as employees who are involved in the development and production of packaging equipment and packaging materials can expect a comprehensive overview of components and automation solutions specifically for the packaging industry.
Lots of trade fairs focus on components and automation solutions, but only one event presents components and automation solutions specifically tailored to the packaging industry. Leverage the synergies created by the fact that interpack takes place at the same time, showcasing the worldwide packaging industry!

Target audience: mechanical engineers in food processing and packaging

Mechanical engineering for the food processing and packaging sectors is one of the most important drivers for the automation technology sector. To package highly sensitive products faster and faster, without waste, requires fully automated processes, as well as the deployment of high-tech components from such areas as drive, control, sensor and camera technologies, including intelligent image processing software. Together they form the basis for more and more powerful and energy-efficient packing lines featuring condition monitoring and remote maintenance. In this context hot-swap components make it possible to exchange components without interrupting operation, thus ensuring the longest possible equipment up-time.
