Alloyd Brands to Unveil New Generation of Aergo® Heat Sealing Machinery at the 2012 MD&M Show in Anaheim, CA

DEKALB, Ill. - Alloyd Brands, a business of Sonoco (NYSE: SON), is pleased to announce the addition of two new table-top heat sealing machines for low-volume applications: the Aergo® 1M and Aergo® 1C.

The Aergo 1M is the latest model in what is already the premiere line of package sealing machines for the medical market. Aergo 1M includes a larger 18.5" heating plate to accommodate broader sealing areas, a solid-steel frame for added stability and added operator conveniences. Equipped with validation ports--to reduce costly human errors--the Aergo 1M is ISO clean room compliant and perfect for medical device start-up firms and laboratory applications such as field testing.

The Aergo 1C is the commercial sibling of the Aergo 1M, including all of the latest enhancements except for validation ports and other features specific to medical packaging. As with all heat sealers in the Aergo line, the Aergo 1C provides consistent sealing and packaging integrity, with an emphasis on user-friendliness, ergonomics and safety. Aergo machines also employ proprietary technologies that ensure faster cycles and more uptime, making the Aergo 1C an ideal packaging solution for non-medical commercial start-ups.

Both the Aergo 1M and Aergo 1C are single-operator, table-top models with heat seal tooling that is scalable to larger Alloyd Aergo machines.

"Continually and collaboratively working with our customers and testing partners enables Alloyd Brands to quickly identify opportunities for increased efficiency, productivity, and ease-of-use," said Vishal Malhotra, VP of Marketing & Business Development at Alloyd Brands. "With these two machines, Alloyd Brands will be able to offer heat sealing machinery in sectors and price points that were previously limited to the company."

Alloyd Brands will be showcasing the new Aergo 1M and Aergo 1C at Booth Number 608 at the 2012 MD&M Show in Anaheim, CA, Feb. 14-16. Alloyd Brands is a leading manufacturer and award-winning designer of high-visibility packaging and blister packaging machines for the retail and medical markets.
