Las Vegas, September 14, 2023 - VisionNav Robotics took center stage at PACK Expo 2023, unveiling cutting-edge intralogistics automation solutions deeply rooted in packaging manufacturing industry. Through continuous technology innovation, they are committed to helping companies achieve sustainable growth in the years to come.


The PACK Expo, organized by the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies(PMMI), stands as the most comprehensive event for packaging and processing in 2023, and the largest Vegas show to date for the organization. The event displays innovations for more than 40 vertical markets across nearly 1 million square feet of exhibit space. 


Amidst this whirlwind of innovation, the warehousing, logistics, and e-commerce sectors are experiencing significant growth. North American manufacturers flock to the event to explore the latest advancements, collaborate on industry challenges, and anticipate future trends that can boost their business outcomes. "Attendees will gain insights from 100+ educational sessions and have access to more solutions under one roof than available anywhere else in North America. A multitude of familiar and new features make the show a must-see for all packaging and processing professionals." Jim Pittas, President & CEO of PMMI, noted.


VisionNav Robotics specializes in providing intralogistics automation solutions for manufacturers. They have a track record of delivering high-quality products and services to businesses in industries such as paper printing, grain and oil packaging, snack packaging, etc. They have successfully implemented multiple projects worldwide, accumulating extensive project experience in the packaging industry. Their solutions are known for their flexibility, efficiency, and stability.


“VisionNav’s participation in the PACK Expo allows us to showcase our advanced automation solutions that address a sustainable workflow demanded by North American manufacturers.

Trending Drives Innovation

The United States, one of North America's fastest-growing packaging markets, is undergoing a transformation driven by four major trends. These trends are intensifying competition within the U.S. packaging industry:


Rapid Growth of E-commerce: The explosive expansion of e-commerce necessitates more efficient developments in packaging manufacturing to support this booming sector.


Changing Customer and Consumer Preferences: Today's consumers demand packaging solutions that are flexible, personalized, and convenient, pushing manufacturers to adapt to these evolving preferences.


Growing Environmental Awareness: Rising global environmental consciousness has led to stricter environmental regulations and policies. Packaging manufacturers must prioritize sustainable production practices.


FMCG and Retail Profit Margin Compression: Factors such as a shrinking global population and cost pressures have shifted the cost-cutting burden onto packaging manufacturers, increasing the demand for cost-effective solutions.


These trends are compelling manufacturers to seek "efficient," "innovative," and cost-effective solutions. To address these shifts, packaging industry players, particularly those in the upper and middle segments, are increasingly turning to smart and digital technologies.


Customized Automation Solution

The packaging industry is segmented based on materials (such as paper, plastic, glass, metal, etc.) and end-user industries (including food, beverages, healthcare, household products, etc.). The manufacturing process is complex with multiple steps, making standardization and simplification of packaging manufacturing solutions challenging in the short term. Therefore, industry customization is an inevitable choice to address the unique requirements and complexities within each segment of the packaging industry.


Flexibility: VisionNav offers a range of autonomous forklifts and submersible lift-type vehicles designed to adapt to various indoor and outdoor scenarios, including flat material transport, shelf access, stacking, and autonomous loading and unloading tasks. They also have an in-house developed (Robot Control System) RCS. By flexibly combining different products and integrating them with upper-level systems, they achieve unified on-site equipment scheduling and seamless integration into the packaging manufacturing process.

Efficiency: VisionNav is at the forefront of developing 3D (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping) SLAM laser solutions, enabling autonomous forklifts to achieve high-precision perception, fast mapping and localization, and multiple layers of protection. These forklifts can adapt to even more complex scenarios and recognize a wider variety of cargo carriers. Project implementation does not require the application of QR codes, making 3D mapping quicker and reducing upfront construction and maintenance costs for customers, ultimately improving return on investment (ROI).

Stability: VisionNav's intralogistics solutions have been tested and proven through over 300 successful projects and rigorous evaluations from more than 50 Fortune 500 companies. After the deployment of autonomous forklifts and the RCS 2.0 system, on-site operations run stably and efficiently, reducing the rate of unexpected failures and improving the automation efficiency of enterprises.


As the world business mode continues to evolve, VisionNav Robotics recognizes the importance of achieving a perfect balance between human creativity and robot efficiency. They are committed to developing cutting-edge intralogistics automation solutions that not only streamline manufacturing processes for businesses but also enable employees to focus on what truly matters, driving innovation and creating a brighter future together!
