WestRock : to Display Automation Solutions at PACK EXPO 2021

09/20/2021 EST

Cluster-Pak® eMerge™ Combo-New to PACK EXPO 2021Cluster-Pak® eMerge™ Combo
An innovative solution for food manufacturers, the Cluster-Pak® (CP) eMerge™ Combo is WestRock's newest fully integrated system that enables a wide range of bowl and tray formats. Using WestRock's optimized fiber-based primary, secondary and tertiary packaging through integrated end-of-line automation, the CP eMerge Combo increases line efficiency and lowers total cost through material and labor savings.

This integrated solution starts with a new, fiber-based, freezer and microwave safe food bowl that is wrapped in a Cluster-Pak® wrap style sleeve carton. Made from recyclable paperboard the carton uses 30-40% less board than a fully enclosed box. The combined product then gets packed into easy-to-open, corrugated shelf-ready packaging. The CP eMerge Combo system consists of a delta robot pick and place, Cluster-Pak style machine and a wraparound case packer and offers a Connected Automation platform that securely communicates performance data and support to help optimize your production lines.

PACK EXPO Show Presence:
• The CP eMerge Combo will be on display at the WestRock booth Pak On Demand™ Pouch System(#C-2023) in the Central Hall of the LVCC.

• Additionally, Greg Magnell, Senior Vice President Box on Demand at WestRock, will present the new solution on Innovation Stage 1 on Tuesday, Sept. 28,11:00-11:30 a.m. PST.

Pak On Demand™ Pouch System-New to PACK EXPO 2021
WestRock designed and developed a proprietary packaging solution, the Pak On Demand™ Pouch System, to respond to consumers' shifting preference for sustainable packaging and the market's desire to utilize a paper-based substrate to replace the mass use of flexible packaging (such as plastic and bubble mailers). Using innovative KD-Fold™ ─ a new tube format made of single-face corrugated fanfold - this next-gen on-demand packaging automation creates a lightweight, curbside recyclable pouch. The system automatically cuts a pouch and presents it open to insert item(s). A single operator then presses the release button and the machine finishes the process by sealing and labeling the package for shipment, making the process 6x faster than manual packing. This solution rPFS 500 Small Format Tray Formereduces labor costs and improves sustainability.
