At the giant interpack packaging show this month, packaging machinery manufacturer Windmoeller & Hoelscher will display a milestone machine, the 750th form/fill/seal unit from the company. The show line, which has been sold to Dutch logistics company Katoen Natie (KTN), will be the newest version of the established Topas F/F/S units in that it can move under "silos" so that goods to be packed are discharged (filled) directly into containers before sealing.
The interpack show will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany from May 12-18. Visitors to W&H's booth (Hall 15, Stand C41 / D42) will see live demonstrations of the newest Topas model moving "under the silos", entering docking position, packing the contents discharged from the silos, then exiting the docking position.
