October 3, 2007

Delta, British Columbia - Wexxar Packaging announced today its new WF10 fully automatic case former which provides a flexible, easy-to-use solution for forming a variety of cases of either right hand or left hand orientation on the same machine. The inline WF10 is the latest in Wexxar's innovative WF Series of automatic case forming solutions available earlier this year.

The WF10's unique omni-handed feature allows case packers to form right-handed and left-handed cases on the same machine. This omni-handed feature makes the WF10 particularly useful for customers which pack a variety of cases with different printing orientations, such as contract packagers and others which want flexibility without the cost of purchasing specific handed equipment.

The WF10 includes Wexxar's Pin & Dome technology which provides a simple mechanical system for case opening that has long been the standard for efficient and effective case forming. In the WF10, Wexxar's Pin & Dome technology has been redesigned to form boxes from the bottom to keep all moving parts down low and within the machine frame. This provides added safety and reduces the need for elaborate and costly guarding. As with all WF series machines, the Pin & Dome system can be easily released and reinserted in a different position without unbolting the mechanism.

The WF10 forms 10 cases per minute and incorporates the same features that earned the WF20 and WF30 accolades for ease of use and case forming quality. Features include a color-coded tactile guide, color-coded knobs and handles, and a corresponding setup check list. This allows for a completely tactile setup and highly user-friendly changeover.

"The WF10 and other machines in the WF Series set a new standard for quality, efficient operation, and ease of use at a total cost of ownership unavailable elsewhere in the marketplace," said William Chu, Wexxar General Manager and Vice President. "We're particularly pleased about bringing the Omni-handed feature to our customers, which directly addresses the flexibility requirements of customers across all markets. Feedback from our customers about the value of an Omni-handed machine has been overwhelming." The WF10 is currently integrated fully with the BEL 252 Case Sealer to offer an automatic case forming and sealing solution for customers operating lower volume lines.

Wexxar will introduce the WF10 at Pack Expo in Las Vegas this month. The machine will be on display in booth C-711. The first machines will be available for purchase in the first quarter of 2008. Packing line engineers can work with Wexxar/BEL Sales representatives to create customized lines for all types of packing needs such as case and tray forming, glue sealing, tape sealing, bag inserting, roller conveying and case check-weighing.
