Hot Topics for Manufacturers from MinnPack Expo

Last week AbeTech exhibited at Minnesota’s only packaging event, MinnPack!  MinnPack is where professionals in labeling, automation, food packaging, package design, and more meet to discuss industry trends and get a look at cutting edge technology. MinnPack is a perfect expo for AbeTech, as we have in house engineers that specialize in your industrial equipment needs.

Below are some of the topics we heard questions about at our booth. You’ll find related resources to help you in your search for increased quality, productivity and efficiency in your operations.

Line control and package inspection

The star of the booth was AbeTech’s own Tevia Auto Identification Controller. The Tevia controller is a plug and play solution perfect for product and label validation. In fact, AbeTech has helped major US food manufacturing companies use Tevia controllers and fixed mount scanners/readers to meet regulatory compliance requirements.
Install takes only four hours per line on average and can cost up to 75% less per line compared to competing systems.

Another hot topic in the booth was RFID tagging and tracking. Asset tracking and inventory management are some ideal use cases for RFID. RFID can be beneficial when you don’t have direct line of sight to the item you want to track. RFID can also help protect your hardware investment by providing real-time asset tracking of your equipment.

Mobile Powered Carts

Increasing your workers productivity and efficiency is at the core of the products and services AbeTech provides. One creative solution is to replace print stations with mobile powered workstation carts from Newcastle Systems. Stop wasting time walking back and forth from pallet to printer and give your workers true mobility in the warehouse, office or shipping/receiving center.
The increased productivity gains and inventory accuracy means your mobile workstation will show ROI within 3-6 months.
