PACK EXPO: the place packaging industry experts turn to discover the newest packaging innovations, look for breakthrough solutions to solve problems, and connect with experts – all under one roof.

Since seeing is believing, we’re partnering with seven packaging equipment manufacturers that we work closely with to have Fresh-Lock® sliders and zippers run on their equipment throughout the duration of the show. Stop by one of the booths below to ask questions, see the closure insertion speed in action, and uncover if the closure-equipment duo could be a solution for your operations.

The widest version of our best-ribbed zipper will be running at the Cloud Packaging Solutions Booth S-2948. Fresh-Lock® Style 113 is a popular zipper selection on the market today, used by many leading brand packages from candy to crackers to chemical products. The zipper’s excellent sealability to a wide variety of films maximizes seal integrity and minimizes leakers. Consumers love this ribbed zipper because there is a wide gripping space to open and close the package.

Head over to CMD Corporation Booth E-7918 to see Style 106DSSS running on compatible equipment.
