Drones for delivery, ecommerce packaging solutions, IoT-driven automation, cobots, digital printing and smart track-and-trace were among the stand-out trends at PACK EXPO Las Vegas.

In the track and trace space, a very exciting announcement came from Videojet, which has teamed up with Applied DNA Sciences in the design of co-branded Applied DNA SigNature molecular-tagged Videojet inks, and a co-branded printer that electronically restricts the use of ink cartridges to only those that contain SigNature DNA inks. The relationship brings the potential to empower the tagging of countless commercial items, all of which are candidates for a CertainT licensing agreement, enabling traceability along the entire supply chain.
