Packaging Robotics Live & Local

Packaging Robotics Live & Local Launches September 27, 2023 in Orange County, Calif.
Solving the Nationwide Labor Shortage with Robotics & Workforce Automation

Chicago; April 25, 2023Packaging Robotics Live & Local, presented by Packaging World, is
launching a regional event series this fall to help manufacturers of consumer-packaged goods
solve their labor shortage problem. The event series will feature industry experts sharing best
practices and real-world success stories of how robotic automation technologies can be used to
optimize packaging operations.

“With labor scarce and unreliable, more brands, CPGs, and contract packagers are turning to
packaging automation and robotics. But unless you have the in-house engineering expertise and
deep pockets of a major brand owner, capital investment in sophisticated, often high-price-tag
robotic equipment can be viewed as a barrier,” says Matt Reynolds, editor, Packaging World.

“Surprisingly or not, robotic packaging automation is a lot easier to justify than you’d expect,
and demonstrable ROIs are often fast enough to make upper-level management and
procurement folks take note,” Reynolds adds. “Learn from experienced packaging robotics
integrators, and the major OEMs they work with, how to vault your packaging operations
forward in reliability, speed, and repeatability by making a business case that decision makers
can’t refuse.”

At each regional event, attendees will get an inside look at the latest robotic technologies from
hand-picked suppliers that have experience providing automated solutions for packaging
operations. Through case study presentations and interactive panel discussions, attendees will
gain a better understanding of how robotics can be used to increase efficiency and reduce costs
in their own facilities.

Experts will also be on hand to discuss packaging-specific robotic integration applications such
as pick-and-place primary packaging, robotic cartoning and case packing, end-of-line operations
like palletizing, and the latest in collaborative robotic options, among other leading-edge applications. They'll share best practices for selecting the right robotic automation solution for
an operation's specific needs while ensuring both safety standards and ROIs are met.

"The goal of this event series is to provide comprehensive information that helps manufacturers
make informed decisions when it comes to integrating robots in their packaging operations. If a
good business case can be made, this event should help you make it," says Reynolds. "By
attending these events, they'll get a clear picture of what's possible with robotics technology
today as well as potential future applications, all the while keeping the bottom line in sight.
