We're pleased to announce that we will once again this year be supporting students studying packaging by sponsoring the Bill Zito Packaging Education Scholarship! Bill taught us all a great deal about packaging and this is one small thing we can do to help the next generation of packaging engineers leave their mark on the industry.

PMMI's Education & Training Foundation will be administering the $1500 scholarship. The Enercon Bill Zito scholarship will be awarded to the candidate who best meets the following criteria:
  • Third year student majoring in packaging engineering or related areas
  • One page essay from student describing his/her career goals, demonstrating interest in packaging industry
  • Extra-curricular involvement such as athletics, etc.
  • Candidate should submit resume outlining academic and work experience along with essay
Interested students can apply here by December 14, 2012.

We had a little fun this year at Pack Expo and created an interactive experience that played off the vial hit - Will it Blend? Questions come in every day about what the best method to test and induction seal is. Given there are no developed standards, we see a lot of different methods. Some that work better than others.

Check out our YouTube video to see a few of the things we tried. Got an idea of how you want us to test your induction seal? Send me an email & we'll connect on the details.

If you had a chance to stop by our booth at Pack Expo this year, you were one of the first to witness the next generation of high speed induction sealing technology - the all new Super Seal Max! Packagers for years have relied up the speed and quality control features of the first generation Super Seal Max.

With the new model we've fully integrated the features of our Super Seal Touch series of sealers with the high speed capabilities required by packagers today. We've also provided up to 20% more sealing power with the new model. Check out the Super Seal Max product page to get all the details or email me for more info.
