Somic to introduce unique, multi-component packaging machine at PACK Expo

Somic America, Inc. (booth E-8550) will unveil a revolutionary machine to the North American market at PACK Expo, October 14-17 in Chicago. The SOMIC-FLEX III represents a new concept that will give customers a true advantage in the marketplace with tremendous flexibility, outstanding speed and a host of other benefits.

The patent-pending SOMIC-FLEX III addresses requests from retail chains in the North American market looking for upright, two-part cardboard packaging. A leading manufacturer for end-of-line packaging technology, Somic is known for its design and development capability. The SOMIC-FLEX III takes multiple purpose, retail-ready packaging machinery to the next level.

Customers will find this new machine to be incredibly fast and flexible. They will have the ability to produce any type of packaging carton, ranging from a single wraparound carton to a multiple-component cover-tray-carton combination. Customers will also have the option to group products in an upright position or lying flat.

This capability is being driven by the newest generation of industrial automation with a Rockwell Automation control system. The SOMIC-FLEX III also is equipped with UL certified components. All machines for the North American market will be fully supported by Somic America’s new headquarters in Minnesota. Somic engineers will be in the booth at PACK Expo to answer any questions.
