Supporting The Next Generation in the Packaging Industry…. The Amazing Packaging Race!

By | Events | October 21st, 2015 | Comments (0)

As a Partner with PMMI and a great supporter of education, Plexpack decided to continue its participation as a challenger in the Amazing Packaging Race during Pack Expo Las Vegas.

Why It Matters to Us

PMMI and Plexpack both believe that the Amazing Packaging Race is an excellent way of promoting the packaging industry and its nuances to a younger demographic—educating them on all that goes on in packaging while being fun and interactive. Plexpack was glad to participate in and promote this event.  We look forward to participating in similar events in the near future.

We decided to make our challenge extra sweet this year by instructing the participants to seal bags of candy. For this, we instructed them on how to use our Emplex MPS6500 Conveyorized Band Sealer integrated with a scale from our partner Weigh Right Automatic Scale Co. The students were to fill the bag with the appropriate weight measurement of candy by using the scale system, then seal the bag correctly with the Emplex MPS6500 Conveyorized Band Sealer.

Plexpack would like to thank all those who were part of this activity such as the teams, PMMI and the other participating companies for the time and effort that they contributed to making this possible. We would also like to congratulate Team 11 for winning the race this year.
