Every year, Filamatic looks forward to PMMI’s Pack Expo conference to showcase our innovation, meet with friends, and form new relationships, but this past Chicago’s expo was a notably exceptional experience for us.
We had the pleasure of participating in The Amazing Packaging Race hosted by PMMI. In this race, around 300 visiting engineering students in groups of 5, entered a contest to perform different activities presented by participating exhibiting companies of Pack Expo; Filamatic being one of these honored participants.
Our engineers were very eager to work with engineering students and help grow their field experience. Filamatic’s booth required the amazing race contestants to draw checkweigh data by recording 10 measurements and determining whether or not the measurements were accept/reject fill analysis. Our seasoned engineers then approved the student’s findings before sending them off to the next participating booth.
Our favorite part of this event was interacting with engineering students who will be the future of our field. Filamatic was proud to work with PMMI by sponsoring The Amazing Packaging Race and looks forward to future educational opportunities with the next generation of engineers.
