Company to Introduce New System Plast? Low Back Pressure Conveyor Belt Series in Booth C-4733

FLORENCE, Ky., Aug. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Power Transmission Solutions, a business of Emerson Industrial Automation, today announced it is attending PACK EXPO 2013 in Las Vegas, Sept. 23?25. At the show, Emerson will hold a news conference at 10 a.m. on Sept. 23 to introduce its new System Plast? Low Back Pressure Conveyor Belt series. In an effort to help reduce waste, many beverage manufacturers are eliminating the cardboard trays from their shrink-wrapped PET packaging. Emerson's new System Plast Low Back Pressure Conveyor Belt series helps overcome conveying issues due the non-uniform bottle base, reducing the possibility of damage.

Emerson develops innovative solutions in product and material design to support its global customers' requirements for sustainability in beverage production. Emerson also extends this focus on innovation through the digital experience it provides for its customers. At PACK EXPO 2013, the Emerson booth (C-4733) will showcase the following:

  • An interactive technology center that showcases Emerson's new SPEC? (System Plast Engineering Calculator) engineering software, as well as their new SmartGuide?, the material handling industry's first interactive conveyor components catalog
  • A working model display demonstrating Emerson's original NG? extra performance PBT thermoplastic resin material developed by System Plast for modular plastic belts and chains
  • An augmented virtual reality app that mirrors the "What Happens When ?" advertising and social media campaigns
  • An interactive touch-screen display featuring a 3-D model of a typical beverage bottling/canning line. The user is able to interact with application "hotspots" which open a pop-up window displaying information about the Emerson product used in that particular location
  • An in-booth social media promotion allowing booth visitors to enter a contest to win a Sony 50-inch LED 3-D Smart HDTV by locating and taking a photo of a mini-cutout hidden in the booth, and posting the photo to Twitter @FoodBevSustain or Facebook /FoodBevSustain
  • An interactive touch-table Emerson trivia game
