The right ingredients for growth 


May 6, 2020

The new GWR-3000 guided wave radar is suited for all types of liquids including those with steam, vapor, foam, condensation, or those prone to residual buildup. It is ideal for continuous level measurement in storage vessels, standpipes, or separators, tank metering at tank farms, and interface measurement to detect separation layers. It is appropriate for use in water, wastewater, oils, fuels, and many chemicals.

The GWR-3000 is completely customized for each vessel. It is offered with plastic, aluminum, or stainless-steel housings and with either a cable or rod customized to a specific length. Both 2-wire 4-20 mA or 4-wire 4-20 mA and Modbus output options make it easily compatible with existing systems. To meet hazardous location requirements, it is available with a variety of CSA and FM approvals, or can be used in ordinary locations. Flat and angled mounting plates, a variety of flange sizes, and 1.5” and 2” NPT mounting options make the sensor adaptable to most any vessel.

The GWR-3000 is easily programmed using a BinDisc module. On-site and remote monitoring can be done using BinView software on a phone, tablet, or PC. It can also be connected to your existing PLC and control room. For convenient access throughout the plant, digital panel meters provide local data access via a push-button display that is highly visible is in bright light, fog, or dust.

These sensors can be applied in liquid storage tanks containing ammonia, bitumen or liquefied gas, ethanol, anhydrous ammonia, and many other types of fuels, oils, or chemicals. The GWR-3000 is also for use in water separators in steel mills, chemical or food plants, waste transfer facilities, industrial wastewater treatment systems, metal recyclers, and flavoring and fragrance manufacturers.


GLEN ARM, MD, May 5, 2020— SUN Automation Group®, a leading global provider of innovative equipment to the corrugated industry, celebrates 35 years of continuous operation this week.  The company, founded in 1985, plans to virtually celebrate its 35 years with its employee-owners around the globe and continuing to provide the highest level of support and service to its customers stretching across six continents.

What began in a small townhouse in northern Baltimore County, Maryland, has grown into one of the most well-respected equipment and product development companies serving the global corrugated industry. SUN was founded in 1985 by corrugated industry veterans Lou Sardella and Pat O’Connor with a mission to provide innovative corrugated-industry product solutions.

Among SUN’s most notable achievements are the 1987 introduction of the Lead Edge Feeder to the corrugated industry.  This innovation helped revolutionize corrugated sheet feeding by providing increased accuracy, efficiency and precision.  By working directly with corrugated converters and global equipment partners (OEM customers) for more than three decades, SUN has been able to adapt this technology to over 11,000 machines around the globe.  

Building on the success of the Lead Edge Feeder, SUN developed unique printing innovations in the years that followed, including its introduction of Rainbow Graphics and its Spectrum Color Unit to the corrugated market.  In 2000, SUN introduced the MicroGrind Die Cut Accuracy Trimmer and acquired the Langston Corporation in 2001 which more than doubled the company’s size. 

Following other notable innovations, like its ColorMaster Blade System and several other retrofit solutions like the SunTrac Vacuum Transfer and SunSet Control Systems, 

SUN transitioned to an ESOP in 2003 and officially became an OEM in 2012 with the introduction of the SUN625 Rotary Die Cutter.  In 2016, SUN expanded to a 180,000 square foot facility in Glen Arm, Maryland and installed the world’s first Aqueous Ink Single Pass Digital Printer for Corrugated which is still in full production today.   In 2019, SUN partnered with Latitude Machinery Corporation to become its exclusive representative and service provider throughout North and Central America.  

SUN has built locations and partnerships around the globe, with SUN facilities in Guangzhou, China; Bristol, UK; and its headquarters in Glen Arm, Maryland.

"As we step into our 35th year amidst a global pandemic, SUN reflects on the resilience of its employees, the company and the corrugated industry,” says Chris Kyger, President, SUN Automation Group. “It’s remarkable to consider that since 1985, SUN Automation has supported corrugated converters through three wars, two recessions, many natural disasters and now the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.  We intend to continue to support the industry for years to come.” 

In 2016, SUN adopted its new “Where You’ll Find Everything Corrugated Under SUN” tagline. With a strong foundation, committed employee-owners and a robust understanding of the corrugated industry of the past, present and future, it is clear that the future of SUN is bright.

MCALLEN, Texas (May 4, 2020)Fox Packaging™ is proud to announce membership into two outstanding sustainability programs, the Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) and How2Recyle®, a standardized labeling system that clearly communicates recycling instructions to the public. With these alliances, Fox Packaging highlights their drive toward innovative and sustainable packaging which performs mindfully in protection of fresh produce, communities, and our environment.

“In being a leader in flexible packaging specific to fresh produce, we have a sincere sense of urgency to actionable improvement of packaging systems, materials management, and recycling while maintaining our most crucial mission – protect fresh food and contribute to lifespan extension,” said Keith Fox, President of Fox Packaging. “To best contribute to this circular economy and encourage the continual use of resources, we found it important to join the How2Recycle® program through the SPC in support of a universal recycling language, reducing unclear label confusion and greenwashing. The How2Recycle® label system addresses all material and component types and increases the likelihood of material being properly recycled.”

Through the SPC, membership organizations can collaborate in educating buyers and consumers to broaden the understanding of sustainable packaging and what meaningful improvements in packaging can be.

“In many ways, plastic flexible packaging is being challenged. In approaching this industry transition, we wanted to align ourselves alongside like-minded businesses who are leading these sustainability conversations,” said Fox. “By joining the SPC and implementing How2Recycle® best practices, we are being transparent in our product offerings and in our overall sustainability efforts. Currently, the majority of our products are recyclable through in-store drop off programs, but this is not an end-all solution. Research and development for sustainable solutions will continue, as we progress in navigating our materials and packaging design.”

By joining these organizations, Fox Packaging intends to be a transparent, thought-leader who provides reasonable sustainable solutions.
