Propak Cape 2014 news update

New innovative packaging technology to be launched at Propak Cape 2014



Top local and international companies in packaging, food processing, printing, labelling and plastics will showcase the newest products, latest industry trends and product developments at Propak Cape 2014. Exhibitors at the show will be looking to take advantage of the event to launch and exhibit the latest technology and products they have to offer at an event that brings together a wide range of complementary industries. Taking place in Cape Town in October, Propak Cape, together with co-located shows FoodPro, Pro-Plas Expo, Pro-Label Capeand Print Expo, will bring exhibitors together across the various sectors, and enable visitors to engage with the most progressive companies in the country.

One such company is international supplier of adhesive systems, Robatech. They will use the event to exhibit the latest developments in Hotmelt application technology for the packaging, printing, paper and plastics industries. The latest Hotmelt system will be on display with its new touch screen technology and production support software, making it an integral part of production reporting, able to reduce production costs and down time. The company will also be launching other new products at the event.

Spray technology is used in many aspects of food packaging, including food preparation prior to packaging for mold prevention, washing, sterilising and packaging prior to filling, inserting product into containers, sealing, applying adhesives for label application, spraying protective agents on packages for transport and more. As a result, Monitor Engineering will be exhibiting its extensive line of spray nozzles and systems designed specifically to help maintain packaging content quality, minimise waste and increase efficiency. Some of the new models on display will be the Accucoat MV10 heated spray system for the application of viscous coatings; the AutoJet 1550 + - a self-contained, compact system which provides automatic control of spray nozzles to ensure uniform and accurate placement of the sprayed solution with minimal waste; and the Mini Fogger Cart sprayer that eliminates wet floors. 

Supplier of printed and laminated flexible packaging materials, Positive Packaging Industries will be showcasing its international product range to the South African packaging industry. The company’s product range includes flexible packaging materials, cylinders, different types of films as well as shrink sleeves and labels.

Midcomp will be showcasing its latest products at Print Expo, including the HP Scitex FB500 Flatbed Printer, Zund S3 Digital Cutter and the HP Latex 260 Digital Printer.

These are just some of the innovations that will be on display at Propak Cape together with co-located shows.

This year is the launch of the first Wine Manufactures Equipment Expo in South Africa, which is being held alongside Propak Cape and jointly organised by Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery, Feria De Zaragoza and Feder Unacoma, and powered by Enomaq-Eima/Techovid.Aimed at vine-growing, winery, bottling, equipment and farm sectors, this expo will attract visitors from manufacturers and food and drink industrialists to importers-exporters, oenologists, wine growers and producers, members of co-operatives and major wine retailers and wholesalers. 

The Western Cape is the perfect home for Propak Cape. As a major exporter of wine, fruit and other valuable commodities to international markets, the area is heavily reliant on the packaging and associated industries in realising the country’s export potential and the region’s all-important stake in earning valuable foreign exchange.

Propak Cape has the support of The Institute of Packaging in SA, Printing SA and Plastics SA.

Taking place at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC) from 21-23 October 2014, Propak Cape is a must for all involved in packaging, food processing, printing, labelling and plastics.
