GREEN BAY, Wis. — July 15, 2015 — Hudson-Sharp Machine Company, a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of plastic bag making machinery, pouch making equipment, and reclosable packaging solutions, will be attending Pack Expo 2015 in Las Vegas, September 28-30. Part of Thiele Technologies, a Barry-Wehmiller Company, Hudson-Sharp will be located at the Barry-Wehmiller booth. Visit us at Booth #C-1800 where we will have professionals available to answer questions and discuss the latest developments in the company’s extensive list of products.

A recently developed product is the EZ-Stand, which provides the latest method for producing stand-up pouches (pictured, top left) by enabling traditional VFFS pouches to stand up! Innoflex, the creator of Inno-Lok® and Pour & Lok™, has developed new technology that pre-applies a bottom gusset to the film, which is then rolled up for later processing on a VFFS machine to create a stand-up pouch with only minor modifications to the sealing jaws.

Designed to combine value and versatility, the 5750W High Speed Servo Wicketer continues to lead the market in speed, efficiency, durability, and quality. Enabling high production output by reduced maintenance, great yield, low scrap, and quick changeover times, the 5750W utilizes a seal bar cleaning system that can be programmed to automatically remove debris from the stainless steel bar which reduces down-time and increases productivity. Hudson-Sharp is also introducing the machine with 20” wicket arms for larger bags targeted for the hygiene market.

With a recent collaboration with Dow PacXpert™ Packaging Technology, Hudson-Sharp is supporting the introduction of Smart Bottle (pictured, top right) to the market with production machinery, which incorporates innovative technology that enables the transition from larger traditional rigid containers to flexible packaging. The cube-shaped bottle is light-weight, durable, and cost-effective, and while it is flexible, it maintains shelf stability once it is filled. The Smart Bottle also offers precise pouring, convenient carrying, and easy reclosing.
