Hudson-Sharp innovation takes center stage at Pack Expo

Sep 06, 2016

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Sept. 6, 2016 — When a world leader in beauty needed a solution for a new product, Hudson- Sharp didn’t bat an eyelash.

Attendees of Pack Expo 2016, Nov. 6-9 in Chicago, Illinois, will learn about a collaborative effort between Hudson-Sharp Machine Company, L’Oreal and Exothermix that brought a self-contained heating solution idea from L’Oreal to market. Representatives from Hudson-Sharp, L’Oreal, and Exothermix will present the case study on the Pack Expo Innovation Stage in booth #N-4580 at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 9th.

Along with this presentation, Hudson-Sharp, a Thiele Technologies company and part of BW Packaging Solutions, will showcase its Pouch Machine Technology at the Barry-Wehmiller booth #S-2100.

In conjunction with fellow BW Packaging Solutions company Hayssen Flexible Systems, Hudson-Sharp plans to feature its EZ-Stand, from Innoflex, which provides the latest method for producing stand-up pouches (pictured, right,) enabling traditional VFFS pouches to stand up. Innoflex, the creator of Inno-Lok® and Pour & LokTM, has developed new technology that pre-applies a bottom gusset to the film, which is then rolled up for later processing on a VFFS machine to create a stand-up pouch with only minor modifications to the sealing jaws.

BW Packaging Solutions encompasses a number of Barry-Wehmiller businesses –
Accraply, BW Container Systems, Design Group, Hayssen Flexible Systems, Paper
Converting Machine Company, PneumaticScaleAngelus, Synerlink and Thiele

companies can provide a single piece of equipment to fully-integrated, custom
packaging lines for a wide range of industries, including: food and beverage, personal care, container manufacturing, pharmaceutical and medical devices, household products, paper products and textiles, industrial and automotive, and converting, printing and publishing.
