In less than a month, more than 45,000 attendees from over 130 countries will descend upon McCormick Place in Chicago from Nov. 6-9 for PACK EXPO International 2016. Intelligrated® will highlight its full system integration capabilities and showcase the newly enhanced Alvey® 891i palletizer, vertical conveyor, robotic depalletizing and roller conveyor solutions in booth S-3666.
The in-booth demonstration features the updated 891i palletizer and a robotic depalletizing cell, integrated with vertical reciprocating conveyor and motor driven roller (MDR) conveyor. The solutions on display are ideal for food, beverage and consumer packaged goods operations that have reduced or eliminated secondary packaging, requiring equipment to handle display cases, poly-wrapped bundles, paper-board overwrap packs with high resolution graphics and more.

PACK EXPO provides a valuable opportunity for attendees to see solutions firsthand and get expert input from material handling experts.”
