STATHAM, Ga. (September 18, 2017) – Benchmark, powered by ProMach, will exhibit its industry-leading food distribution and loading solutions at Pack Expo 2017 from September 25-27 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. (Benchmark Pack Expo Booth # C-3014)Benchmark InFlight FT Pack Expo 2017

On display will be Benchmark’s InFlight FT Loader, a non-contact feeder ideal for high-speed continuous motion loading of products that cannot be backlogged or products which are sticky or fragile.  A floating belt-to-belt transition is used to time randomly spaced product directly into the receiving flights of either a horizontal wrapper or cartoner at speeds up to 500 ppm.  The Inflight FT offers an operator-friendly experience with easy-to-use software and diagnostics accessed through touchscreen, minimizing changeovers and downtime.  The company’s InFlight FT will be integrated with a Formost Fuji Horizontal Wrapper.

Primarily used for crackers and other baked goods, Benchmark's Slugger SL delivers precise slug measuring and loading from a single lane of on-edge product. Made of durable stainless steel construction, the Slugger SL mounts in-line with an on-edge horizontal wrapper and loads slugs at speeds up to 150 slugs per minute. This loader is ideal for high-speed slug loading without the cost of an elaborate, dedicated distribution system. The Slugger SL is the perfect solution for reducing labor costs, minimizing repetitive motion and obtaining higher wrapper speeds for increased productivity.

Also on display at Pack Expo 2017 will be Benchmark’s Southern Packaging Machinery brand featuring the PowerPouch Intermittent Motion Packager, a versatile horizontal form/fill/seal pouch packaging machine designed to enhance efficiency and productivity in any packaging environment.  For higher production needs, Benchmark also offers the PowerPouch Plus.  This system eliminates the need for vacuum openers and replaces them with a more positive filling system, capable of running at higher speeds.
