rate, " Mr. Egan explained. " Allowing multiple lanes to be
formed at once improves throughput and expands the
market opportunities. "
Robotics promise the next leap when it comes to increasing
production and streamlining the packaging
department. While the first packaging robots were deployed
in the 1960s and '70s, they have taken some time
to catch on. Schubert's Robby the Robot demonstration
at a trade show in the 1970s showed the industry the potential
of robotics in the packaging department.
" What Schubert did in the confectionery market was
demonstrate the ability to do a higher speed of a combination
pack whether it's the solid chocolate or combination
of solid and filled chocolate, " Mr. Egan explained. " That
allowed the industry to expand and increase the number
of SKUs it was producing. "
By automating the packaging department, bakers and
snack manufacturers were able to make their production
floors more flexible and offer more products, packaged
in different formats.
Keeping it fresh
And then there's sliced bread and the bread bag itself.
The original bread slicer dates back to 1928 and was
developed by Frederick Rohwedder and perfected by
Gustav Papendick, who added the capability to wrap the
PMMI SPOTLIGHTS PACKAGING
HISTORY AT PACK EXPO LAS VEGAS
At Pack Expo Las Vegas, to be held Sept. 27-29, attendees can
explore the past and future of packaging at the PACK to the
Future exhibit. The exhibit will showcase nearly 30 historic
packaging machines along with historical imagery from established
consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies such
as General Mills, Minneapolis, and the Kellogg Company,
Battle Creek, Mich.
" Each one of these historical machines in PACK to the
Future has a baking, snack or confectionery application, " said
Tom Egan, vice president, industry services, PMMI. " Even
things like metal detection and an auger filler that you would
use for popcorn are all machines that will have examples going
back decades, and those same machines are used in the
baking, snack or confectionery markets. "
This exhibit won't just be showcasing how far packaging
equipment and automation have come. but it will also
explore where technology is going. Exhibitors will show how
they are adapting to changes brought on by e-commerce,
sustainability and other challenges facing the CPG industry
today. The PACK to the Future Stage will also feature presentations
about the advancements in sustainable packaging
solutions, smart packaging and artificial intelligence.

While marketing may have changed, the original bag-in-box packaging
for cereal hasn't changed much since Kellogg Company
first used it in the early 20th Century.
Kellogg Company
bread in wax paper and package it in cardboard trays. In
1930, Wonder brought sliced bread to the entire nation,
which continues to be a colloquial measure of innovation
... " the greatest thing since sliced bread. "
The convenience of sliced bread was a hit, but keeping
sliced bread from going stale too quickly was a challenge
and required packaging that preserved its softness.
From wax paper to cellophane to polyethylene, materials
have evolved to keep bread fresh even sliced. The 1960s
brought plastic technology and bread bagging technology
to automatically package bread in its now universal packaging
format, a polyethylene bag with a twist tie or clip.
" If it weren't for certain plastic bags, we wouldn't have
been able to have a 7-day shelf life for bread instead of
a 2-day shelf life, " said Brian Wagner, co-founder and
principal at PTIS, LLC.
According to Tom Dunn, managing director,
Flexpacknology, efficient bread bag packaging required
a coordinated effort of several needs. The industry had
to develop the side-weld bag making process for printed
polyethylene film and implement a wicketing method
to stack bags for transport to the bakery. For the actual
bagging process, machines had to remove bags from
those wickets, open them with a puff of air and push a
loaf of bread inside before applying a closure. All of this
came to fruition in the 1960s when Alvin Formo developed
an automatic poly bagging machine that was then
tweaked after acquiring the patent rights to a bread bagging
machine developed by Roy Willard and Bill Noyes.
