EQUIPMENT supplier Fibre King enjoyed a productive AUSPACK 2019, with plenty of interest in the technology on display including its three-axis robotic arm.
Fibre King has consistently exhibited at AUSPACK events for more than 25 years, and had a stand right near the en- trance of this year’s show in Melbourne, which it has called its most successful yet.
James Windsor, CEO, said AUSPACK is one of the compa- ny’s favourite industry events.
“We particularly enjoy being able to meet new customers, lis- ten to their needs and know that we can help them achieve their production goals.
“Our extensive experience is what sets us apart and is some- thing we are proud of,” he said.
Of particular interest to visi- tors at the Fibre King stand was the company’s new three-axis robotic arm. According to
The team from Fibre King.
Windsor, the Fibre King team was thrilled with the level of enquiry about the arm.
“I look forward to speaking further with the interested par- ties to develop applications for our robotic arm technology that will solve production challeng- es within complex facilities.
“This innovation shows our design capability and some- thing that drives us here at Fi- bre King – continually striving to improve efficiencies for our customers using the latest tech- nology coupled with our indus- try experience,” he said. ■
A&D Weighing and Inspection reports that this was one of its best AUSPACK shows ever, with a variety of quality leads.
The sales team had a jam- packed show, with plenty of guests interested in weighing and inspection solutions such as the Protex X-ray system, ac- cording to manager Julian Horsley. “It was a hectic four days discussing our ‘smart and simple’ weighing and inspec- tion systems, with plenty of in- terest in our new Protex X-ray
and inline checkweighers and metal detectors – all locally stocked and supported in Aus- tralia,” Horsley said. “Now all hands on deck to follow-up as quickly as we can.”
A contest on the stand chal- lenged visitors to be “A&D Pre- cise” and guess the combined weight of staff members Lyndal Kenneally and Robin Breugel- mans to the nearest gram. The four closest daily guesses each won a HT-CL compact scale, while anyone who guessed ex-
actly would take home a professional water- proof catering scale valued at $500.
“Over the four days, nobody guessed the ex- act combined weight, but the lucky four who got really close have been contacted via email to claim their prizes,” Horsley told PKN. ■
The A&D team had a “hectic” four days.
