Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed introduced their "C-Series" checkweighers at Pack Expo Las Vegas. Mike is shown with one of the new machines. All of the "C-Series" machines feature cleaner, more sanitary designs. We can also offer these with metal detectors now and xray and vision systems in the future.
Triangle displayed their "Flex 1" cartoning machine. This machine marries up directly to a bagging machine to create bag-in-box packages. The machine displayed at the show features automatic carton size changeover. An operator can change over the bag size and carton size in a total of about 10 minutes.
PACK EXPO CHICAGO 2016
Pack Expo 2016 was held at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago. The Mettler-Toledo booth was located front and center of the main building. They exhibited new products from Hi-Speed checkweighers and Safeline metal detectors & xray systems.
The Triangle booth featured a continous motion bagging machine feeding a Flex 1 cartoner. They were able to do full speed product demonstrations during the show.
Our mother grew up in Chicago and was a huge Cubs fan, so during the show Mike and Tom were able to add her name to the wall at Wrigley Stadium to celebrate the Cubs World Series win.
METTLER-TOLEDO DEMO BUS
In July and August, the Mettler-Toledo Demo Bus visited our area carrying a full line of Safeline xray and metal detectors and Hi-Speed checkweighers. We were able to park the bus in front of manufacturing plants and have customers bring product from their production line out to be tested.
Mike is shown setting up a product demonstration for a customer using the Safeline "Pro Advantage" metal detector.
Tom is shown setting up a customer demonstration using the Hi-Speed XS checkweigher control. With him is the regional manager for the Mettler-Toledo product inspection group, Curt Swank.
