Kinetic Vision To Present New eCommerce Packaging Simulations at Pack Expo 2018

Kinetic Vision, a national leader in product research and development, will unveil its new virtual eCommerce modeling and simulation system this October at the nations premier consumer packaging conference in Chicago.

Kinetic Visions Modeling + Simulation group will roll out their new virtual eCommerce packaging testing system that helps companies secure shipping certifications that companies like Amazon and Walmart require.

"Our background in stress analysis, finite element analysis, and modeling and simulation gives us a unique advantage in helping consumer product companies optimize their products to pass shipment testing requirements," said Jim Topich, VP of Engineering for the company.

The Kinetic Vision system focuses on assisting with ISTA® certification and also ISTA®6, the version required by Amazon. ISTA® stands for the International Safe Transit Association and is the leading industry developer of testing protocols and design standards that define how packages should perform to ensure protection of their contents. Kinetic Visions virtual system tests products that "Ships In Own Container" (SIOC) and items placed into a master shipping container (known as "Over Box"). While physical testing is ultimately required to comply with the ISTA® specifications, computer simulations of comparable test procedures can be utilized to rapidly predict and optimize packaging performance. Digital testing enables significant time and cost savings over manual trial-and-error approaches.

"Products that were once designed for palletized delivery are now being shipped directly to the consumer. Thats convenient for the buyer, but a headache for the manufacturer. The only way to rapidly adjust packaging is through simulation, and our system gives manufacturers a way to test and react even before physical models are made" said Topich.

The company will be showcasing its virtual eCommerce system at the Pack Expo trade show, taking place at Chicagos McCormick Place from October 15th to 17th. Pack Expo is the worlds largest packaging trade event with an estimated 50,000 attendees and over 2,500 industry exhibitors. Kinetic Visions booth is #E-10505, located in the Lower Lakeside center at McCormick Place. Learn more at

EXAIR's Industrial Vacuums with No Moving Parts

EXAIR's compressed air operated Reversible Drum Vac and High Lift Reversible Drum Vac Systems attach quickly to any closed head 30, 55 or 110 gallon drum. This high powered vacuum fills a 55 gallon drum in less than two minutes. With the simple turn of a knob, the same stainless steel pump quickly empties the drum. Coolant sumps can be easily refilled, floor spills vacuumed, or contaminated liquids transferred to filtration tanks in minutes. The new High Lift Reversible Drum Vac provides maximum lift up to 15 feet. It can move thick liquids (up to 1400 cP) through 20 feet of hose. It is excellent for below grade sumps, deep wells and more. The Reversible Drum Vac and High Lift Reversible Drum Vac do not use electricity and have no moving parts, assuring maintenance free operation. It is designed for continuous and heavy duty applications where electric vacuums fail. Learn more at
