Mespack, a forefront pioneer in crafting innovative and sustainable flexible packaging solutions, is set to participate at Pack Expo 2023, a cornerstone event in the packaging sector, hosted in Las Vegas, USA. During this edition of the event, the company will fortify its position as an industry leader in flexible packaging and end-of-line solutions, underscoring its dedication to advancing sustainable and intelligent machinery.
After approximately 30 years in the flexible packaging market, Mespack has become a one-stop-shop player with the industry’s largest product portfolio, offering horizontal (roll-stock, pre-made, and hybrid) and vertical equipment to produce sachets, stick packs, stand-up pouches, water-soluble pod, various film-based packaging, and end-of-line solutions with premium services worldwide.
The pharmaceutical industry is another key sector that is increasingly demanding complete solutions. For this market, Mespack has been collaborating with Famartec in order to offer a high-quality integrated solution. At Pack Expo, Mespack will introduce its new vertical form-fill-seal machine: MSPH series. This machinery has been exclusively developed for pharmaceutical products, and is integrated with Famartec’s cartoning machine, in order to produce stick packs and insert them into cartons. This vertical form-fill-seal machine for stick-pack pharmaceutical products is able to produce up to 840 sticks per minute.
The MSPH series has been specially designed for the pharmaceutical industry and complies with specific regulations, such as GMP, GAMP5, FDA, and 21 CFR Part 11. In reference to documentation focused on pharmaceutics, this solution not only offers the execution of DQ, IQ, OQ, RA, but also the preparation of PQ and EN1020 standard 2.1 and 3.1 material certificates. Upon request, other forms of documentation can be prepared as well.
Additionally, a CMR II is also present at Pack Expo Las Vegas, a high production speed solution with industry-leading efficiencies: it represents the next generation in continuous motion technology with an auto-changeover of 20 minutes. The CMR can be configured for a range of filling applications. At speeds of up to 140 ppm, this series is a unique solution for a complex packaging environment with wide flexibility. The servo motor intelligence and unique continuous motion design generate the speed and efficiency needs of the customers that work in the pet food industry or general food where pieces are solid, such as dried food.
Furthermore, the company will present the improvements and developments to its highly acclaimed digital platform, Athena. This platform not only enables customers maximize the value of their production data but performs tasks from machine control to data analytics as well. Since its launch, Athena has proven to be a key tool that elevates the efficiency of Mespack’s machinery; clients are able to achieve their business goals while maintaining complete control and obtaining the most from the data generated throughout their manufacturing process.
Once again, Mespack will feature its partnership corner, ‘Wall of Fame’. This corner will showcase the most recent recyclable-ready packaging co-creations and projects with the company’s strategic partners in the sector – Amcor, Bobst, Comexi, Dow, Famartec, Hoffer, Menshen, Mondi, MonoSol, NeoCeram, Notpla ProAmpac, and UFlex, Additionally, this exhibition will be a discussion point for solutions focused on sustainability and the manner by which Mespack and these partnerships can support companies in making the shift towards more recyclable packaging.
In collaboration with Amcor and Menshen, Mespack has used its equipment to develop new high-quality green-spouted packaging. This solution is produced with Amcor’s AmPrima PE Plus film and Menshen’s spout, both of which have a mono-polyethylene foundation. The evolution of this packaging is based on drop resistance improvement. Subsequently, this pouch is capable of holding 1L of liquid.
Conjointly with Mondi, Mespack has developed a new sustainable stand-up pouch of exceptional quality. This pouch is constructed with Mondi’s functional barrier paper 95/5 and printed with Comexi’s D4 digital press.
Furthermore, within the framework of Mespack’s collaboration with ProAmpac, an H180FE machine was installed at the ProAmpac Collaboration and Innovation Center in Rochester, NY (USA). At the center, to test materials, applications, and technologies are tested together with customers. For the same purpose, the Dow Pack Studios innovation center is also equipped with an H180FE machine as well.
Recently, along with the rest of the partners, Mespack has market-launched, additional sustainable packaging solutions, particularly recyclable spouted stand-up pouches, which will be on display in the sustainability corner.
Also this year, Mespack will be presenting the a special gift: the ‘Golden Ticke’. Visitors to its the company’s stand will receive an invitation to visit one of the innovation centers of Mespack, Dow or ProAmpac innovation centers to learn about their sustainable developments, receive advice and training, test recyclable materials and applications, view demonstrations of machinery on display, meet strategic industry partners, among other objectives.
Guillem Clofent, managing director of Mespack, says, “We are very proud to be present at Pack Expo in Las Vegas, one of the most important trade fairs in the packaging sector. At Mespack, and together with our partners, we put great effort into innovation as well as always being one step ahead of the trends and needs of our customers, hence being able to offer them the best solutions for flexible packaging machinery.
“Our equipment is at the forefront of the latest technologies, as illustrated with smart machines connected to the Athena digital platform, which offers the possibility to remotely control and collect large data in order to optimize production and maintenance. We are innovating in new sustainable packaging formats, which we are sure will be part of the immediate future in our market. We hope visitors will enjoy this extraordinary show that is full of innovations for the exciting packaging sector.”
Visitors will be able to view these novelties at Mespack’s Pack Expo stand C4034.
