The 2013 Awards are supported by Midway Metals, PKN, Schenker and SMC.

the biennial Awards of Excellence are designed to recognise innovative and outstanding packaging and processing solutions, said APPMA chairman Mr Mark Dingley.

“Companies that enter these biennial awards are recognised for their contribution and outstanding achievements against their peers within the wider packaging industry and we encourage everyone to enter,” Mr Dingley said.

Awards categories include Export Achievement Award, Design Achievement Award, Customer Partnership Award, the Imported Equipment Award, Best New Product Award and the APPMA Scholarship.

Award winners included:

2013 APPMA Best New Product Award

Machinery Automation & Robotics – for the Singulator.

The Singulator provides a simple answer to the requirement in packaging and processing environments for high speed sorting of products from a group of individual items in random orientations into a single stream.

The innovative design, requiring minimal floor space, encompasses a series of 90° turns as guided by belt conveyors, sequentially running at increasing travel rates to allow for gap creation and singulation of product units.

Designed originally for food manufacturing environments, it has a robust, hygienic and easy-to-clean structure.

2013 APPMA Scholarship

Jamie Schellebeck, Packaging Engineer, Amcor Fibre Packaging.

The 2013 APPMA Scholarship offers one person the opportunity to further their packaging education through an internationally accredited Diploma in Packaging Technology.
