At the 2013 NFPA Industry and Economic Outlook Conference last week in Wheeling, IL, some very interesting research about the usage of pneumatics in the packaging machinery industry was reviewed http://michaelference.blogspot.com/2013/08/pneumatics-and-packaging-presented-at.html. This is a very key market for pneumatic component sales.
Pneumatics in packaging is also a very important topic for our audience and that is why our September issue will feature a preview of PackExpo plus an article on the subject. It will discuss how pneumatics gives packaging equipment the speed, reliability, and repeatability it needs.
On our website, you will find an entire Markets page on Packaging and I invite you to take a look at our articles on the subject found there. We also offer our audience a detailed review of all pneumatic technology in our Fluid Power Basics/Pneumatics section. Every issue of our monthly magazine Hydraulics & Pneumatics contains articles designed to eduate our readers on the subjecto of pneumatics. Please click here for our digital edition.
