  • Mespack’s virtual reality glasses bring further quality to Gulfood Manufacturing(current)
The Duravant Group subsidiary successfully presented two of its high-capacity pieces of equipment at the exhibition held at the World Trade Centre in Dubai (UAE, 6th to the 8th of November), thanks to this new commercial tool.
The augmented reality glasses are an added value to the user experience as they allow the wearer to see large-scale equipment in operation without having to physically transport the equipment to the stand.
The flexible packaging solutions manufacturer has contacted over twenty leads at the Emirate event and is currently working on a new business opportunity in the region.

Barcelona, 22 November 2018.- The flexible packaging equipment and machinery manufacturer, Mespack, left the Gulfood Manufacturing exhibition, one of the most important exhibitions of the international food and drinks processing industry (World Trade Centre, Dubai, UAE, 6th to the 8th of November), having achieved its identified objectives. “Our purpose in attending the event was to efficiently show our products to manufacturers from the Middle East. Presenting our new commercial tool – augmented reality glasses which allow the person wearing them a 360º stereoscopic vision of our large-scale equipment as if they were physically in the stand – has been a great success”, explains Santi Alberich, Marketing Director at the company.

Thanks to the Oculus glasses the Duravant Group subsidiary has effectively been able to show two of its high capacity packaging solutions (the H540 FE6 and the HCM 420 FET machines), in operation, without having to transport them to the event. Therefore, those who visited the stand were able to see for themselves that Mespack’s equipment has very precise hygiene and dosage controls. “Our systems reduce the chance of welding contamination and avoid leaks which would damage the product, something which is very important for the majority of our clients, especially for those who also require ultraclean solutions”, said Alberich.

The H540 FE6 is the fastest small scale (120-200 ml) flexible stand-up pouch packaging machine on the market. Designed to meet the hygiene and safety requirements of the baby food industry, it can make between 300-360 envelopes per minute with an anti-choking top cap and round edges.

Meanwhile, the HCM 420 FET is the continuous packaging equipment for the high production of large-volume envelopes offered by Mespack, and can produce 140 1.5 to 2L stand-up pouch bags in one minute.

Both machines have sparked great interest: “We have made 20 quality leads at our stand. Furthermore, we are working on a new business opportunity in this region which will be finalised in the next few months”, concluded the head of marketing at Mespack.
