Bringing Packaging Automation Solutions to PACK EXPO
“Tell us about your toughest packaging automation challenge.”

That was our welcoming statement to booth visitors at the recent PACK EXPO event in Las Vegas, where more than 30K attendees converged to find the latest technologies and solutions to all their packaging challenges. And once we knew their particular issue, we could follow up with multiple solutions as Bishop-Wisecarver has been in business nearly 70 years and has worked with the packaging industry since that first decade.

With multiple patents showing our experience, and several engineers on hand that love to solve problems, the discussions in the booth were interesting for both our team and the customers.

And for those new to the benefits of Bishop-Wisecarver’s motion products, we hosted educational sessions covering three key topics, as well as provided detailed handouts:

Intuitive Designs for Guided Motion with Low Total Cost of Ownership
Machines assembled from parts that are difficult to install or require frequent maintenance will end up costing more money over time. Motion products that cost less initially but wear more quickly, or fail prematurely, will cost much more over the life of a machine. Head-to-head competitive testing can easily identify the significant differences in durability between similar products. This session discussed intuitive and durable motion products and test results that prove a low total cost of ownership.

The Solution Is More Than Just the Metal
Sometimes you need a partner to provide solutions that are more than just the metal parts. Close engineering support, unique product customizations, and supply chain services can extend the capabilities and the competitive position of your business. This session discussed sourcing custom developed motion solutions, complete sub-assemblies, and product support services that streamline sourcing activities and increase the ease of doing business.

Keep the Throughput, Lose the Footprint: Comparing Track and Conveyance Systems
Both track-based systems and conveyor-based systems can shuttle materials from A to B… but why choose one over the other? Environmental factors, desired machine footprint, and application requirements such as speed and precision all play a role in the decision process. This session showcased how to increase design flexibility for packaging equipment and new developments in rotary and driven track systems.

Talking with new and current customers is something the Bishop-Wisecarver team enjoys whether it happens at a show like PACK EXPO or just by phone. We are proud to have strong customer partnerships in the packaging industry, and our customer list continues to grow. Contact us at if you have questions and want to talk further.
