“AUSPACK is a show for closing deals, not opening them,” says Bernard Waterson, managing director of Auspouch, who tells PKN the show was successful for the company, with visiting Italian principals a major draw- card. Auspouch was showcas- ing processing and packaging solutions from Martini, Plex- Pack, Gualapack, IPI, PIGO, Fenco and GPI group.
PKN spoke to Michaela Mar- tini, CEO and owner of Martini, the weighing and packaging so- lutions specialist, who said the company was excited about its collaboration with Auspouch. She noted the rising use of pre- made pouches globally, and an- nounced a new machine from Martini that can accommodate five different pouch formats.
Another drawcard on the stand was the award-winning Easysnap technology. Tonino Tavani showed PKN the single-
The Italy-themed Auspouch stand was a hive of activity, with some of the company’s Italian principals on the stand to help field enquiries.

serve dispensing pack with a worldwide patented one-hand- ed opening system. The pack- aging ticks safety, accessibility and sustainability boxes. Aus- pouch represents Easysnap in this market, and Waterson be- lieves it has huge potential in both food and health and beau- ty sectors. ■
NEW on the Foodmach stand was the UniSecure technology, which offers serialisation and traceability without the need for any additional unique co- vert or overt technologies. PKN dropped by to chat to Liza Nel- son of Systech, owner of Unise- cure. Just prior to AUSPACK the two companies had an- nounced an agreement that will see Foodmach to serve as a ‘Systech preferred partner’ to market UniSecure in Australia and New Zealand.
According to Nelson, UniSe- cure leverages existing product barcodes and packaging to create a unique signature that cannot be duplicated, ensuring product authenticity.
“Print operations are dynam- ic, with environmental factors combining to produce micro- variations or ‘noise’ in printed marks. These variations are ran- dom, unique, and beyond con-
trollable resolution of any print- er,” Nelson explains.
“UniSecure takes advantage of these variations by detecting measurable patterns and har- nessing them to generate an inherent, covert security fea- ture from existing package print marks.”
Nelson sees huge opportuni- ty in this market to provide end to end supply chain protection for high-value exports. ■

SIDEL GROUP used its first ever AUSPACK exhibition to reach out to customers and show off its versatile product portfolio.
Sidel has equipment running at customer sites in both Aus- tralia and New Zealand, and wanted to let them know they could count on the company’s support, Oceania regional man- ager for sales and marketing Bikramjeet Attly told PKN pub- lisher Lindy Hughson.
“This is our first time at AUS- PACK as Sidel Group, though we have been in Australia for the past 30 years,” he said. “AUSPACK is important to local customers so they know what’s available in the world, so we thought we’d come and set up here.
“That’s the message we want to tell all customers: yes, we’re here, local, in the same time zone,” he said.
According to Guido Ceresole, sales director for food, home and personal care, the company was proud to show off its Evo- Deco labelling system, which
was a finalist for the New Prod- ucts award at the APPMA Awards of Excellence.
“This is a state of the art la- beller in terms of modularity and eco-friendliness, because it can be used with many differ- ent types of labels for both PET and glass bottles. It’s the most modern machine in its range,” he said. “Our machines can be tailored to the needs of differ- ent industries – for beverage, but also food, home, and personal care, with high speed or low speed, as well as high productivity, high versatility, and low changeover time.” ■
