Pneumatic Scale Angelus and Emerson at Pack Expo Las Vegas

September 11 to 13

Movicon.NExTTM HMI/SCADA is a highly modular, highly scalable platform that goes beyond SCADA to solve automation problems for both CPGs and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), from the single-machine level to a complete plantwide IIoT project implementation.

Pneumatic Scale Angelus and Emerson will showcase its canning line and floor-to-cloud solutions respectively at Pack Expo Las Vegas, held from September 11 to 13.

Pneumatic Scale Angelus, a BW Packaging company, will introduce its CB100R. As the latest addition to PSA’s craft beverage canning line portfolio, the CB100R marries rotary counter-pressure filling with rotary Angelus seaming in a compact footprint, operating at more than 100 cans per minute (CPM). 

PSA will showcase the CB100R in the BW Rigid Systems section of BW Packaging’s booth, located at C-1800. This will be the 6th year since 2017 that PSA has debuted an innovation for the craft market, underscoring its focus on helping customers grow their operations by providing a full complement of systems scaled for various stages of canning maturity.

Similar to prior PSA counter-pressure models, such as the CB50C and CB100C, the new CB100R serves the needs of producers interested in canning beer, cider, seltzer, carbonated soft drinks (CSD) and more, at carbonation levels of up to 4.1 vols (8 g/l) CO2. Adding a rotary three-spindle seamer allows for faster speeds, and a smooth continuous-motion transition from filling to seaming, eliminating unnecessary agitation. 

“Our CB100R builds upon the successes of our existing counter-pressure lines, with the added advantages of a full rotary system,” said Mike Davis, PSA’s Product Line Leader for Can Filling. “The combination of a rotary filling turret with rotary seaming means we’re able to increase the number of cans traveling through the system, maintaining best-in-class Angelus seam integrity without creating any increase in product agitation. Ultimately, this allows us to eliminate the unwanted reductions in carbonation levels that are seen with other filling methods.”

“The advantage of the full rotary CB100R design is a smaller footprint than other rotary and linear formats,” said Adam Brandt, PSA’s vice president of Sales. “The addition of the rotary seamer means we can achieve faster speeds in a more compact design. This is great for brewers who want to increase production without requiring additional space, which is often already at a premium.

PSA is part of BW Packaging and works alongside the other primary packaging businesses, including BW Flexible Systems, BW Integrated Systems and Synerlink.  

Emerson’s floor to cloud packaging solutions

Global technology, software and engineering leader Emerson will exhibit its floor-to-cloud packaging solutions at Pack Expo. Visitors to South Lower Hall, Booth 6107, can view highlights from the comprehensive Floor to Cloud portfolio, which includes Aventics, Branson, Movicon, PACEdge and PACSystems solutions. 

Packaging automation experts will demonstrate how a Floor to Cloud approach unlocks trapped data and connects islands of automation, giving manufacturers the visibility and control to solve critical challenges and ambitious goals. Attendees will learn how to improve overall equipment effectiveness (OEE), increase energy efficiency while reducing waste, and create safer operations and digital record keeping. 

Emerson will also be highlighted as an industry expert in the new Sustainability Central presented by PMMI and curated by Fuseneo. Located in North Hall (Booth N-9455), Sustainability Central is an interactive experience that demonstrates how manufacturers can achieve packaging sustainability.  

In addition, Emerson will sponsor two events, the annual Packaging & Processing Women’s Leadership Network breakfast and the Amazing Packaging Race.
