August 31, 2018 — Professionals who attend this year’s PACK EXPO International in Chicago, October 14-17, can learn about the latest smart manufacturing techniques aimed at delivering value across the enterprise. This year, Rockwell Automation will conduct a series of presentations and demonstrations for end users, machine and equipment builders in packaging and related industries to share the most recent innovations in independent cart technology, analytics and network security.

Attendees can also visit booth E-8043 to see the iTRAK and MagneMover Lite motion control systems from Rockwell Automation. Designed for the movement, positioning and tracking of loads, these modular, scalable motion control systems can increase throughput in applications such as packaging, pharmaceutical manufacturing, sterile and aseptic filling, lab automation and medical device manufacturing.

In conjunction with its participation in PACK EXPO International, Rockwell Automation is a title sponsor of the PACK Gives BACK benefit event on October 15 featuring Chicago-based comedian Sebastian Maniscalco. A portion of the proceeds from this event will go to the PACK EXPO scholarship program, which supports students pursuing advanced degrees in packaging or processing at PMMI partner schools.
