Mapping out your AUSPACK 2017 schedule? Excellent: now’s the time — Australasia’s leading processing and packaging exhibition is just around the corner. From 7 to 10 March, #AUSPACK 2017 gives you the opportunity to explore more than 15,000 square metres packed with machinery, interactive displays, networking hubs and educational forums.
There’s just one challenge: you only have four days.
With more than 350 exhibitors, it pays to create a game plan to ensure you discover the best that AUSPACK has to offer. And if there’s one stand you should make a beeline for, it’s stand 59 (that’s us!).
Here are 5 great reasons to visit Matthews Australasia at #AUSPACK 2017:
Reason #1. Get the lowdown on latest models
Knowing exactly what’s happening on your production line is invaluable to driving continuous improvement and enhancing your business’s profits. On our stand, we’ll be demonstrating a range of coding, labelling, inspection and integration solutions that will allow businesses to do just that. You’ll find new models showcasing the latest technologies: our award-winning iDSnet Enterprise and iDSnet Manager reporting software, small character continuous inkjet coders (CIJ), thermal transfer overprinters (TTO), large character drop-on-demand printers (DOD), next-generation label print applicators (LPA), vision equipment and inspection devices, and much more.
Plus, you’ll also see how humble end-of-line equipment — such as “ordinary” coding, labelling, marking and inspection devices — can be integrated with your existing systems to deliver real-time intelligent insights. Because we know this is where the real power lies to improve business performance.
Reason #2. See serialisation in action
Serialisation is more important than ever. With the rise of exports, many manufacturers now realise how applying serialisation enables better traceability, authenticity and protection for the brand and consumer. If you’re curious about serialisation and want to find out what it’s all about, visit us at stand 59 where we’ll show you it works. (If you want a head start, this eBook is worth a look, and this infographic clearly sets out the basics, while here’s how Camperdown Dairy did it.)
Reason #3: Pick our brains
If there’s one thing we love about AUSPACK, it’s having time to meet people and help them really understand how we can help. You might be in the market for a labeller or looking for a solution to streamline identification and inspection processes throughout your business — whatever your business challenge, stop by stand 59 to pick our brains.
Reason #4: Join us for a drink
If our expertise isn’t enough to convince you, our bar will be! Matthews’ Chameleon Bar will open for drinks and refreshments from 3:30pm each day. We always find that over a relaxing beverage is the best way to discuss the latest in global identification and inspection technologies, and how Australian businesses can leverage these manufacturing innovations. This year, you can also meet our overseas technology manufacturers. Cheers to that!
Reason #5: Internet of Things
Not only can you visit us at stand 59, we’ll also be taking the stage at the National Technical Forum. On Thursday 9 March, Trent Munro, Product Manager – Intelligent Coding Solutions, will delve into the hot topic of information-driven manufacturing. Afterwards, join the conversation as the panel discusses the Internet of Things (IoT), Industry 4.0 standards and the fourth industrial revolution. Don’t miss out! Download the forum program for details and register today. If you’d like some pre-reading on IoT, there is some good information here (manufacturing predictions for 2017), here (where it fits into Industry 4.0) and here (disruptive innovations ready to rock your supply chain).
Not sure how to find us? Ask AMY!
In a first for Australia, AUSPACK visitors will be greeted at the door by AMY. Proudly sponsored by Matthews, AMY is a customer service robot on hand to answer your questions during the expo. So if you want to stop by our stand, AMY can tell you exactly where to find us. (Curious about social robots? Read our latest article.)
There’s only so much we can give away here – the rest you’ll just have to see for yourself at stand 59!
