Robotics at Pack Expo


Pack-Expo International is a yearly event where all the players in the field of packaging and processing gather in one location. This year that location is McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois on Sunday, November 2 through Wednesday, November 5.

Motion Controls Robotics will be in the thick of things in the Upper North Hall in booth N- 4940. Our goal is to show how Robot Experts are Improving Packaging.


Our Booth will Feature Robotics at Pack Expo:

  • The MCRI random case erecting system
  • A new adjustable end of arm tool which dramatically improves palletizing options
  • Case palletizing using a FANUC M410 robot
  • Videos on a variety of processing, packaging, and roll handling systems designed to improve your plant operating efficiency


Visit our booth to learn more about end of arm tooling (EOAT) design and selection for case packing and palletizing. Our 20-30 minute in-booth education session will start at 9:30am Monday, November 3. This session, Case Packing and Palletizing End of Arm Tool Selection – Tips and Application Guidelines, is tailored for end users of robotic palletizing/packaging systems.

Motion Controls Robotics has partnered with Combi Packaging Systems to present our new Ergopack. The Ergopack is a robotic pick and place case packing system. During the show the Ergopack can be seen in action in Combi’s BOOTH N-4721. Motion Controls Robotics representative will be available in the booth to discuss this new case packing solution.
