Harpak-ULMA at PACK EXPO International, Chicago 2024

Booth #N-4736

What's new in packaging and automation?

Discover innovative approaches to packaging and automation at Pack Expo Internationalin Chicago! This show is a great opportunity to reconnect with industry peers and we’re thrilled to be returning again this year. We have plenty of exciting features planned for you in our booths.


Flexibility has consistently been a focus as we strive to build productive, cost-efficient, lasting packaging solutions. Come experience the many faces of flexibility in packaging in our booths and discover how they can help you adapt to change and scale your production. 


Get a sneak peek of the machinery and related innovations we’re bringing to Pack Expo below. We’ll have thermoforming, flow wrapping, vertical bagging, tray sealing and case packing solutions on display and running demos in Booth #N-4736.

As the proud recipient of last year’s Technology Excellence Award for Packaging and Processing, we’re continuing to raise the bar by redefining the standards of packaging through innovative technology and ideas. This award not only reflects the quality of the solutions we offer, but also of the dedication and diligence of our team.

Last year we featured our AR-enabled training and maintenance programs that reduce downtime and eliminate errors. Though we’ve made this solution even better over the past year, we still have some new tricks up our sleeve. Stop by booth #N-4736 to see what solution we’ve entered for the excellence awards this year!

Technology Excellence Award

Product to Pallet Automation

We provide primary and secondary packaging automation equipment as well as advancements in robotic automation that are paving the way to new levels of scalability and cost containment for producers of every size and industry. Robotics can now handle depalletizing, de-casing, infeed handling, raw food handling, primary packaging, secondary packaging, mixing (combo packs), and palletizing. Tertiary automation, palletizing, and tote/basket management systems are options we can help with as well.


Speed to market, standardization, cost, and reusability are all concerns when deciding whether to use automation and how much of your line to automate. Harpak-ULMA helps with every aspect of your production, from start to finish. 


At the show, you’ll see robotics and case packing.

Flow Wrap Solutions

Our flow wrap solutions have broad applications and plenty of built-in flexibility, giving you the ability to quickly adapt to different product sizes and package with or without a carrier tray. 


Flow wrappers are also dual-purpose machines, which can be designed to run several different film types like polypropylene, laminate, and polyolefin shrink. Flexible machine components also allow you to change your seal rollers, cross seal jaws, and folding boxes to create the ideal package to meet your end customer’s needs. 


These machines also help you reduce downtime with simple tool-free changeovers that take 5 to 10 minutes or less and can be completed by a single person.

Thermoforming Solutions

Thermoforming solutions are truly flexible and great for all types of food and medical applications.


Your packaging can adapt to changing markets and trends with various package formats and sizes available on the same machine, including vacuum, MAP (modified atmosphere packaging), and skin. You also have the option of running flexible and/or semi-rigid films. Our thermoforming solutions also help you reduce downtime with simple tool-free, single-person changeovers that take 10 minutes or less. 


Allen Bradley controls are available on our standard and skin thermoformers, and come standard on our TFS 500 through TFS 700 models. These controls may be more familiar to trained technicians and ensure more readily available parts. 

Tray Sealing Solutions

Our G. Mondini® tray sealing and forming machines – such as our Trave with integrated Platformer technology – provide powerful performance and flexibility across various applications, from snack packs to fresh or frozen prepared meals, meat and cheese, and beyond. Our tray sealers are manufactured with the most advanced capabilities for denesting, conveyance, filling, sealing, and secondary case packing, along with full product-to-pallet automation integration, standard, and their equipment options include 100% Allen Bradley-integrated controls architecture. 


Top producers are always looking for more efficient, innovative ways to develop and implement high-speed, high-performance packaging lines that can adapt to changing consumer trends and meet their packaging demands. At Harpak-ULMA, we meet those needs by offering our customers a robust line of automatic, high-output tray sealing and forming machine solutions.  

Flexibility for your packaging line means...

Adapting to changing trends

The world of packaging moves fast. Trends like sustainable packaging, increased snacking, and clean label products all require shifts in your packaging strategy. Adapt to these changes and go to market quicker with flexible machines that can produce several sizes and packaging formats with a variety of films.

Reducing production downtime

We know time is valuable on the production floor. That's why decreasing downtime with simpler changeovers on machines, advanced training using augmented reality, and excellent customer service are a priority for us. Less downtime means more flexibility to scale your production.

Remaining user friendly

Flexibility doesn't just apply to your machinery and run times. It applies to your operators, too. Simplifying your machine design with streamlined training solutions helps your team develop skills faster and reduce error. That's why Harpak-ULMA offers Allen Bradley controls on a growing number of machines and provides advanced online training solutions.

Have questions before the show?

We’re excited to reconnect in person at Pack Expo, but we’re also happy to be a resource for you year-round. If you have a packaging need or question, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’ll connect you with our packaging experts to provide the guidance and insight you deserve.
