PPMA matters<br />

Can you afford<br />

to be a Laggard<br />

in business?<br />

Grant Jamieson<br />

CHAIRMAN PPMA GROUP OF ASSOCIATIONS<br />

(INCORPORATING PPMA, BARA & UKIVA)<br />

You may or may not have heard of the Diffusion of<br />

Innovations written by Professor of communication<br />

studies Everett Rogers in the 60s. It is a theory that seeks<br />

to explain how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology<br />

spreads through cultures.<br />

Rogers’ Model – The Innovation Adoption Curve - identifies<br />

five types of behaviour:<br />

• Innovators – brave people, pulling the change. Innovators<br />

are very important communicators<br />

• Early Adopters – respectable people, opinion leaders who<br />

try out new ideas but in a careful way<br />

• Early Majority – thoughtful people, careful but accepting<br />

change more quickly than average<br />

• Late Majority – sceptical people who will use new ideas or<br />

products only when the majority are using them<br />

• Laggards – traditional people, caring for the ‘old ways’,<br />

who are critical towards new ideas and will only accept<br />

it if the new idea has become mainstream or even tradition.<br />

Risk is minimal, investments are<br />

wise and outcomes positive<br />

A quick search of the internet for more in-depth definitions<br />

and you will be able to identify yourself in one of these categories,<br />

where you are now and perhaps where you should be on this<br />

scale. Are you an innovator or are you a Laggard – or are you<br />

somewhere inbetween?<br />

Innovators – can get ahead of the game but there are risks – you<br />

could be barking up the wrong tree. Early Adopters – might be good<br />

to be one of these, or possibly Early Majority, it depends on your<br />

risk attitude and perhaps more so, on the motivation for process<br />

improvement. If you do something – the outcome will be X – but<br />

if you don’t do something then the outcome might be even worse.<br />

So when does a process, a technology, our approach to<br />

a problem move from the Innovators segment to the Early<br />

Adaptors or to the Early Majority segment? And why do<br />

I ask? Well in this issue we have many industry experts,<br />

manufacturing companies and end users showing and telling<br />

you how beneficial and mature the automation, robotics and<br />

vision industries are right now. They are arguing that these are<br />

markets in the Early Majority zone. Risk is minimal, investments<br />

are wise and outcomes are determinable and positive.<br />

Significantly, your (global) competition knows this and is<br />

acting accordingly. So reflecting on your own business, is where<br />

you fit now really where you ought to be?<br />

Former big four boss<br />

is headline speaker at<br />

the PPMA Show <strong>2015</strong><br />

The winning Ecotrophelia team<br />

Top prize is awarded<br />

to PepsiCo placement<br />

students this summer<br />

A team of PepsiCo placement<br />

students has won the gold<br />

prize at Ecotrophelia <strong>2015</strong>,<br />

a competition organised by<br />

Campden BRI in conjunction<br />

with IFST, that challenges<br />

students interested in a career<br />

in the food industry to design<br />

an eco-friendly, innovative<br />

food or drink product with<br />

commercial potential.<br />

Presented at Campden’s<br />

annual open day, the<br />

winning team was made up<br />

of representatives from five<br />

UK universities that will<br />

now compete against gold<br />

winning national teams from<br />

across Europe in Milan this<br />

October. A record eleven UK<br />

universities were represented<br />

in the final this year.<br />

Justin King CBE, former<br />

CEO of Sainsbury’s and<br />

a leading figure in the<br />

fmcg and grocery retailing<br />

sectors, is the headline<br />

seminar speaker at the PPMA<br />

Show <strong>2015</strong>, the UK’s premier<br />

production line event for<br />

processing and packaging<br />

machinery taking place at the<br />

NEC in the autumn.<br />

Taking to the stage on the<br />

first day (29 September), King<br />

will discuss the future for<br />

multiple retailers, how the<br />

growing market shares<br />

of discount retailers will affect<br />

the supply chain and how<br />

the continued emergence of<br />

supermarket convenience<br />

outlets is shaping the market.<br />

“Justin is one of this<br />

country’s most widely<br />

respected business figures and<br />

I’m sure his discussion will<br />

provide valuable insight for<br />

both visitors and exhibitors<br />

alike,” says Grant Collier,<br />

head of marketing for the<br />

Former Sainsbury’s boss Justin King<br />

PPMA Group. “The issues<br />

surrounding suppliers and<br />

major retailer relationships<br />

have never been more<br />

pertinent and there are few<br />

people in the industry better<br />

positioned to comment on this<br />

topic than Justin.”<br />

The exhibition takes place<br />

from 29 September – 1 October<br />

at the NEC, Birmingham, and<br />

will feature products from<br />

more than 300 exhibitors.<br />

to bring benefits<br />

OPEN WEEK HIGHLIGHTS NEW IN HOUSE FACILITIES<br />

Robot capabilities on show<br />

ABB Robotics held an open week at its Milton Keynes site that<br />

demonstrated the latest developments in robotic automation while<br />

explaining the benefits of using robots in manufacturing processes.<br />

Hands on workshops and innovation seminars accompanied these<br />

demonstrations while one of the days was dedicated to educating<br />

students, graduates and also engineering apprentices.<br />

The PPMA Total Show 2016<br />

will take place at the NEC,<br />

Birmingham next September.<br />

Historically, this machinery<br />

and materials event has<br />

always taken place in June<br />

every three years, but new<br />

organiser the PPMA Group has<br />

moved the event to the autumn<br />

to make more sense for<br />

exhibitors as well as visitors.<br />

“With the previous timings,<br />

the gap between this event and<br />

the PPMA Show itself was out<br />

of kilter,” explains exhibitions<br />

manager David Harrison.<br />

“By moving it to September,<br />

it fits in seamlessly with our<br />

machinery-only event,”<br />

Practical guide to<br />

machinery safety can<br />

be downloaded<br />

TÜV SÜD Product Service today<br />

launches its Practical Guide to<br />

Machinery Safety.<br />

Available as a download<br />

from TÜV SÜD’s website, the<br />

guide has been developed in<br />

response to the common hazards<br />

and issues that its consultants<br />

regularly observe when visiting<br />

manufacturing sites.<br />

The guide introduces machinery<br />

safety, providing guidance on<br />

the best route to compliance,<br />

including topics such as:<br />

• The legislative framework<br />

• Implementing risk assessments<br />

• Four steps to CE marking<br />

• Electromagnetic compatibility<br />

(EMC)<br />

• Provision and Use of Work<br />

Equipment Regulations<br />

(PUWER).<br />

“While machinery end-users<br />

think they have safety compliance<br />

covered, our site visits often<br />

prove otherwise,” says Neil<br />

Dyson, business line manager for<br />

Machinery Safety at TÜV SÜD<br />

Product Service. “Requirements<br />

go much further than the<br />

Machinery Directive, and a<br />

complex series of interrelated<br />

standards means that even the<br />

most astute can get things wrong.<br />

“Our new guide will help<br />

them to ensure that they are on<br />

the right path to compliance as<br />

machinery safety is one of the<br />

most significant issues.”<br />

Compressed air leaks<br />

are costing ‘thousands’<br />

Compressed air<br />

leaks are costing<br />

UK industry<br />

thousands of pounds<br />

every year, according<br />

to industrial services<br />

provider Flexicon.<br />

The warning from<br />

Flexion, part of ERIKS<br />

UK, comes in the wake<br />

of increasing concerns<br />

over compressed<br />

air costs and its<br />

environmental impact.<br />

“UK industry is<br />

literally leaking money<br />

with its failure to<br />

accurately detect and<br />

deal with compressed<br />

air leakages,” says<br />

Mark Stone, product<br />

manager at Flexicon.<br />

“Big leaks, such as a<br />

drain cap on a filter<br />

regulator can cost<br />

up to £5,000 every<br />

year and even small leaks on<br />

equipment, emanating from<br />

a gas control panel, main air<br />

drop or push fit connection<br />

can cost hundreds of pounds<br />

in compressed air every year.<br />

“The concern is that the<br />

cost of repairing a loose<br />

connection on an isolation<br />

valve could be as low as £25,<br />

but the leak is all-too-often not<br />

being detected or rectified,”<br />

he continues. And he believes<br />

A medium sized plant can be surveyed in under 3 hours<br />

that the average industrial<br />

plant leaks 30% of the total<br />

amount of compressed air<br />

produced with some sites<br />

losing as much as 60% of<br />

the total air generated.<br />

“The problem is that this<br />

produces an even greater<br />

demand for compressed air<br />

to keep up with the losses,”<br />

he says.<br />

“Compressed air is<br />

produced by air generators<br />

CSL Quarter Page Horizontal 63 x 186_(Show 15)_(Machinery Update) 20/05/<strong>2015</strong> 14:24 Page 1<br />

which run on<br />

electricity, which<br />

means leakage has<br />

an enormous impact<br />

on both energy<br />

efficiency and the<br />

environment,” he<br />

says. “The problem<br />

is that it is regarded<br />

as a low or no cost<br />

item, particularly<br />

by machine or plant<br />

operators who don’t<br />

have to pick up the<br />

bill themselves.”<br />

To aid industry,<br />

Flexion has<br />

introduced its<br />

Compressed Air<br />

Savings Programme<br />

which includes an<br />

application audit,<br />

full report and<br />

first fix capability<br />

for customers.<br />

“Detecting leaks is a<br />

fairly straightforward matter<br />

when you have the right<br />

equipment and you know<br />

where to look,” says Stone.<br />

“A survey of a medium sized<br />

plant by an experienced<br />

team can be achieved in about<br />

three hours with the use of<br />

an ultrasonic detector that<br />

is specifically designed for<br />

the task.”<br />

Young engineers from<br />

PepsiCo & Nestlé speak<br />

Electrical apprentice<br />

engineer at PepsiCo<br />

Sam Kelly and Hannah<br />

Whall, project engineer at<br />

Nestlé UK are set to reveal<br />

the opportunities available<br />

to young people and how<br />

the industry can do more<br />

to inspire a new generation<br />

of engineers during the<br />

PPMA Show <strong>2015</strong>.<br />

Both young engineers<br />

will be speaking on the<br />

final day of the exhibition<br />

that takes place at the NEC,<br />

Birmingham in the autumn<br />

(29 Sept – 1 Oct). The talk will<br />

form part of a comprehensive<br />

seminar schedule that will<br />

take place throughout the<br />

three day event.<br />

“The fmcg environment is<br />

a diverse industry and there<br />

are a wide variety of exciting<br />

prospects,” says Sam Kelly<br />

about the industry. “It is this<br />

variety across the industry<br />

that is attractive with various<br />

businesses working in a<br />

variety of different fields<br />

which means that everyday<br />

your skills are being tested in<br />

a new way.<br />

“It is a challenge but also<br />

a rewarding industry that<br />

Sam Kelly of PepsiCo will speak as will Hannah Whall who works at Nestlé<br />

young people and graduates<br />

can expect a good level of<br />

responsibility from the off<br />

and personally, it is this<br />

responsibility that has<br />

been a huge confidence<br />

builder for me,” he continues.<br />

“I have developed not only<br />

as an engineer but also as<br />

a person.”<br />

“There is a definite lack<br />

of awareness of both the<br />

manufacturing and<br />

packaging industries in<br />

schools currently and young<br />

people are either unaware<br />

or uninformed of the<br />

opportunities it presents,”<br />

says Hannah Whall, who<br />

believes this is one of the<br />

obstacles stopping young<br />

people from recognising<br />

the opportunities that<br />

industry affords.<br />

“More can to be done to<br />

let young people realise<br />

the opportunities available<br />

to them,” she says. “This<br />

education should start<br />

earlier and be more specific<br />

with teachers highlighting<br />

all available opportunities<br />

throughout school ranging<br />

from apprenticeships to<br />

college courses to degrees.”<br />

inspection<br />

is UK first<br />

SCS UK is broadening its sphere<br />

of food inspection systems with<br />

the range of vision equipment<br />

from Italian company Italvision<br />

which it is bringing to the UK for<br />

the first time.<br />

Vision system designer<br />

Italvision has developed a<br />

machine especially for the rapid<br />

inspection of food packs.<br />

“The system meets the challenges<br />

of all round 3D vison, resolution<br />

of the smallest fonts, colour<br />

shades, pack details and accuracy<br />

at production speeds demanded<br />

by food companies,” explains Phil<br />

Ryder of SCS UK. This is achieved<br />

through the application of high<br />

definition cameras, intense but<br />

low energy LED illumination<br />

and high speed 64 bit quad<br />

image processing.<br />

The challenge in meeting<br />

the growing demand for pack<br />

inspection lies in engineering<br />

systems that can capture and<br />

analyse images of products at<br />

production speeds recording<br />

minute lettering to subtle colour<br />

variations through to complex<br />

3D geometries, continues Ryder.<br />

Advanced systems can be tailored<br />

to meet specific vision needs.<br />

“We are UK agents for other<br />

Italian inspection units and this<br />

vision system seemed to fit in<br />

well with our existing portfolio,”<br />

explains Ryder. The company is<br />

planning to demonstrate one<br />

of these new systems at the<br />

PPMA Show in September.<br />

ACHEMA Review<br />

Intelligent monitoring<br />

minimises downtime<br />

Great results are<br />

delivered by<br />

ACHEMA <strong>2015</strong><br />

More than 166,000 visitors used<br />

the five day ACHEMA <strong>2015</strong> event<br />

in Frankfurt this June to see the<br />

offerings of 3,813 exhibitors for<br />

the chemical, pharmaceutical<br />

and food industry.<br />

“We are very happy that not<br />

only the figures add up, but<br />

obviously the quality of the<br />

event has been perceived as<br />

very good by all participants,”<br />

says Dr-Ing Thomas Scheuring.<br />

“The atmosphere was great,<br />

and the feedback we have<br />

received so far was very positive.”<br />

The next ACHEMA will take place<br />

in Frankfurt from 11-15 June 2018<br />

but here, we highlight just some<br />

of the products on show this<br />

time around.<br />

Oerlikon Leybold<br />

Vacuum highlighted the<br />

benefits its monitoring<br />

solution brings to customers<br />

in achieving an effective<br />

production environment<br />

through planning,<br />

predictability and process<br />

safety during the exhibition.<br />

Based on the monitoring<br />

solution, Oerlikon Leybold<br />

provides its customers with<br />

customised service level<br />

agreements and guarantees<br />

the availability of service<br />

experts and fast response<br />

times. The condition-based,<br />

predictive maintenance<br />

strategy is designed to offer<br />

maximum plant availability<br />

and minimised unplanned<br />

costly production downtimes.<br />

In the field of heat<br />

treatment processes, vibration<br />

monitoring systems for dry<br />

compressed pumps offer<br />

enormous potential. Increased<br />

wear on the pump is detected<br />

as well as influencing process<br />

conditions, such as deposit<br />

formation or particle entry.<br />

Maintenance measures can<br />

be initiated when the state of<br />

the pump actually requires<br />

intervention, says<br />

the company.<br />

Run times are<br />

maximised and<br />

maintenance staff<br />

can be deployed<br />

more efficiently. With<br />

regard to failure costs,<br />

preventive maintenance<br />

provides a high<br />

return on investment<br />

and additionally<br />

supports a continuous<br />

improvement process for<br />

the entire maintenance<br />

management as well as<br />

for production.<br />

In most cases,<br />

companies may not even<br />

need any additional<br />

installation of expensive<br />

sensors. “In a first step,<br />

we use the data that our<br />

pumps produce anyway,”<br />

explains Thomas Knecht,<br />

senior manager global field<br />

& remote service at Oerlikon<br />

Leybold Vacuum. “However,<br />

an additional sensor can<br />

be used to increase the<br />

predictability in more<br />

complex tasks.”<br />

The condition-based<br />

maintenance conducts<br />

Monitoring data brings production gains<br />

maintenance measures only<br />

when triggered by actual<br />

wear. The monitoring solution<br />

enables not only the display<br />

of trend curves, critical states,<br />

and the storage of historical<br />

data, but also the calculation<br />

of cumulated consumption<br />

values.<br />

Schubert-Pharma presented<br />

itself as a partner of the pharma<br />

industry at the event by featuring<br />

the prototype of a packaging<br />

machine without an electrical<br />

cabinet. Here, Schubert has<br />

combined intelligent software and<br />

Tablet press debuts with<br />

other latest technologies<br />

Following the market<br />

launch of the Kilian KTP<br />

420X single-sided rotary<br />

press at interpack last year,<br />

Romaco Kilian’s double-sided<br />

version, the Kilian KTP 720X,<br />

made its debut during<br />

ACHEMA <strong>2015</strong>.<br />

This high speed press,<br />

designed for manufacturing<br />

mono and bi-layer formats,<br />

compresses up to 1,020,000<br />

tablets an hour.<br />

High speed tablet press on show<br />

Both presses in the KTP X<br />

series are eminently suited<br />

for processing temperature<br />

sensitive products like<br />

Ibuprofen or Metformin.<br />

Optimal cleanability in<br />

mono mode and rapid batch<br />

changes were key design<br />

priorities. Thanks to the<br />

large HMI panel with swipe<br />

functionality, the Romaco<br />

tablet presses are also very<br />

simple to operate.<br />

Romaco is the first<br />

manufacturer worldwide to<br />

offer high tech tablet presses<br />

featuring the integrated<br />

CWC system,<br />

which measures<br />

the weight<br />

of the tablets<br />

continuously<br />

while they are<br />

being produced.<br />

Also demonstrated<br />

was the Macofar<br />

MicroMaxX 18<br />

microdosing machine,<br />

a new solution for aseptic<br />

microdosing. Designed<br />

to be flexible, the Macofar<br />

MicroMaxX 18 is equally<br />

suitable for processing<br />

pharmaceutical powders<br />

or sterile liquids and meets<br />

all the requirements for<br />

downstream freeze-drying.<br />

With its acquisition of<br />

Innojet Herbert Hüttlin in<br />

February <strong>2015</strong>, the Romaco<br />

Group says it became the<br />

first supplier in the world to<br />

manage the entire process<br />

chain for manufacturing<br />

and packing pharmaceutical<br />

solids. Romaco Innojet’s<br />

high efficiency solutions<br />

for gentle granulation and<br />

coating processes are based<br />

on the patented air flow bed<br />

technology. This method<br />

allows up to 75% shorter<br />

processing times compared<br />

to conventional technologies.<br />

The Romaco Innojet exhibit<br />

included the Varioscale VS 40<br />

system module, billed as the<br />

world’s first coating system for<br />

totally variable batch sizes,<br />

which represents the ideal<br />

choice for solid particles such<br />

as tablets of any size and<br />

shape as well as soft or hard<br />

gelatine capsules.<br />

New Machinery<br />

Conveying solution provides a<br />

comprehensive peanut system<br />

ClearView Junior <strong>MU</strong> J-A <strong>2015</strong>_<strong>MU</strong> 23/06/<strong>2015</strong> 16:41 Page 1<br />

Spiroflow has introduced<br />

a new conveying solution<br />

that effectively provides<br />

a ‘one stop’ peanut handling<br />

system for food processors.<br />

Two solutions are available<br />

to handle easy to damage and<br />

fragile peanuts. Cableflow<br />

cable drag conveyors and<br />

Aeroflow aeromechanical<br />

conveyors can be used,<br />

depending on delivery speed<br />

and volume requirements.<br />

Peanut butter processing is<br />

best served by the Aeroflow<br />

system which can convey<br />

at higher speeds, both<br />

horizontally and vertically,<br />

with minor degradation. The<br />

Cableflow system, however, is<br />

better suited to applications<br />

that require whole nuts with<br />

virtually zero degradation.<br />

THE AEROFLOW SYSTEM<br />

CONVEYS NUTS AT UP TO<br />

10,000KG<br />

an hour in operation<br />

Spiroflow says these<br />

conveyors are ideal to use<br />

with its bulk bag dischargers<br />

to bring together not only the<br />

volume of delivery of peanuts,<br />

but also salt stabilisers and any<br />

other ingredients required.<br />

The flexible screw conveyor<br />

is ideal for salt conveying.<br />

Peanuts are usually<br />

blanched or roasted prior<br />

to processing and may be<br />

supplied with skins attached<br />

or removed. These new<br />

systems can handle the nuts<br />

in either state.<br />

“Our conveying, discharging<br />

and filling systems are<br />

designed bespoke for each<br />

customer and undergo full<br />

scale system trials in our<br />

UK Technology Centre,”<br />

New Machinery<br />

Doy Zip bag styles are handled<br />

at speed on new vertical bagger<br />

Bosch Packaging<br />

Technology says that<br />

nut, chocolate and<br />

confectionery manufacturers<br />

can refresh their brands<br />

and increase shelf appeal<br />

without sacrificing production<br />

efficiency with its new SVE<br />

2520 DZ vertical bagger with<br />

Doy Zip functionality. It is<br />

claimed as the fastest bagger<br />

with this functionality<br />

currently on the market.<br />

The compact continuous<br />

motion machine produces<br />

up to 100 Doy Zip bags per<br />

minute and offers all of the<br />

most popular bag styles<br />

as well as additional<br />

options. To demonstrate<br />

the benefits of the<br />

Doy Zip bag style<br />

produced on the vertical<br />

machine, Bosch has created<br />

an information platform at<br />

www.doyzip.com. This site<br />

outlines criteria to consider<br />

when selecting the ideal<br />

packaging equipment for<br />

Doy Zip and there is a facility<br />

for brand owners to order<br />

sample bags.<br />

“We have re-engineered<br />

the vertical form, fill and seal<br />

The attractive shape and glossy finish of Doy Zip bags provide consumer appeal<br />

machine based on the wellproven<br />

SVE platform to give<br />

manufacturers the branding<br />

potential of high quality<br />

Doy Zip bags with minimal<br />

footprint,” explains Patrick<br />

Lagarde, engineering and<br />

design manager at Bosch<br />

Packaging Technology.<br />

The premium quality,<br />

attractive shape and glossy<br />

finish of Doy Zip bags help<br />

drive greater visibility and<br />

consumer preference for food<br />

products at the point of sale,<br />

says Lagarde. “Doy Zip<br />

from Bosch helps brands<br />

stand out on the shelf and<br />

opens up new opportunities<br />

to meet consumer demands<br />

of easy opening and also<br />

reclosing,” he says.<br />

Bosch believes this Doy Zip<br />

bagger offers manufacturers<br />

significant production<br />

flexibility to help keep up with<br />

changing market conditions.<br />

The SVE 2520 DZ combines<br />

a small footprint of only<br />

six square metres with<br />

high speed. Continuous<br />

motion coupled with a<br />

unique zipper applicator<br />

(patent pending) ensures<br />

this high speed.<br />

Higher output per square<br />

metre compared to alternative<br />

solutions results in lower costper-bag<br />

and a higher return<br />

on investment.<br />

The machine produces<br />

seven different bag styles:<br />

pillow, gusseted, block<br />

bottom, corner seal, full<br />

corner, 3-sided as well as<br />

Doy. Changeovers from<br />

pillow to Doy Zip take about<br />

45 minutes.<br />

Baker Perkins believes<br />

the addition of soft<br />

centred double ball<br />

lollipops to the capability of its<br />

ServoForm depositors extends<br />

the diversity of product<br />

concepts in the lollipop sector<br />

as this new option creates<br />

The concept of soft-centred<br />

single ball and flat lollipops<br />

has been around for some<br />

time, says the company but<br />

what the development of a<br />

double ball version adds is the<br />

opportunity to combine two<br />

lollipops into one. For example,<br />

a soft-centred ball joined to a<br />

standard, hard-filled or even<br />

another soft-filled ball to<br />

enable a range of truly unique<br />

products to be created.<br />

This is an extension of<br />

depositing technology that<br />

is already well proven for<br />

making hard candies with<br />

soft centres and lollipops<br />

with hard centres. Soft centre<br />

lollipops can only be made<br />

by the depositing process<br />

because of the extreme<br />

accuracy of deposit and stick<br />

placement required.<br />

Existing ServoForm<br />

depositing systems can easily<br />

be adapted to take advantage<br />

of this new capability for<br />

customers to develop<br />

new products.<br />

Multivac has<br />

developed<br />

a compact<br />

variant of the T 260<br />

traysealer which is<br />

specially designed<br />

for packing sensitive<br />

products in small<br />

batch sizes. The<br />

system is suitable<br />

for cleanroom use<br />

and ensures that<br />

the packaging<br />

procedure is secure,<br />

reproducible and<br />

traceable.<br />

This compact<br />

model, which is<br />

mobile and can<br />

therefore be used<br />

very flexibly, is<br />

designed for a<br />

wide spectrum of<br />

trays. The GMPcompliant<br />

stainless<br />

steel construction<br />

meets all the<br />

requirements of<br />

the medical and<br />

pharmaceutical industries<br />

with regard to cleanroom<br />

compatibility and ease of<br />

cleaning.<br />

Thanks to its small space<br />

This compact model is mobile so is flexible in use<br />

requirement, the T 260 is<br />

also ideally suited to use<br />

where space is limited while<br />

loading and unloading of<br />

The new model offers a<br />

high level of measurability<br />

and reproducibility, which<br />

means that it contributes<br />

significantly to process<br />

reliability. It can also be<br />

calibrated and validated.<br />

Multivac’s IPC control<br />

enables the entire packaging<br />

procedure to be monitored and<br />

controlled, as well as enabling<br />

scanners and printers for<br />

data communication to be<br />

integrated. Critical parameters<br />

such as sealing pressure,<br />

cooling water and temperature<br />

are monitored permanently<br />

by sensors.<br />

Quick format changes can<br />

be achieved reliably and<br />

quickly so that the T 260<br />

can be used for the efficient<br />

packing of a wide range<br />

of products in small and<br />

medium batch sizes. To make<br />

the quick and ergonomic<br />

die change even easier, the<br />

company offers a die<br />

Dust extraction unit<br />

is updated to handle<br />

more factory debris<br />

Dustcontrol UK has updated its<br />

centralised dust vacuum system<br />

by enlarging its proportions<br />

and increasing its capacity and<br />

capabilities.<br />

The updated DC 11-Module<br />

XL is a central unit for source<br />

extraction and industrial cleaning<br />

that can manage all kinds of dust<br />

and chips. The latest upgrade<br />

sees the proportions of the<br />

original unit increased, meaning<br />

better capacity and adding to<br />

the scope of its efficiency. It also<br />

provides the ability to handle<br />

more extraction points at a time<br />

than the standard model.<br />

“The specifications of the DC<br />

11-Module XL are larger than<br />

the original which gives it an<br />

edge as the quantity of dust and<br />

debris it can handle is increased,”<br />

explains Dustcontrol UK’s general<br />

manager James Miller.<br />

“The model is delivered as a<br />

complete central unit from the<br />

factory, and thanks to its plug<br />

of other forming materials.<br />

VISION TECHNOLOGY<br />

GUARANTEES THAT<br />

100%<br />

of items are accurately<br />

packed, eliminating costs<br />

related to operator errors<br />

Equipment carries out<br />

various error searches<br />

including confirming the<br />

presence of tablets, their<br />

size, shape and positioning,<br />

checking whether they are<br />

chipped or broken, and<br />

identifying overfilled or empty<br />

blisters. In addition, the system<br />

can check for foreign objects or<br />

false products as well as colour<br />

spots and stains within the<br />

surface structure of the pack.<br />

Bottle combiner meets<br />

changing requirements<br />

This bottle combiner has been installed at Ardagh’s plant in Sweden and, says Ian Beach, has proved successful<br />

Noshe has further<br />

developed the design<br />

of its bottle combiner<br />

to meet the changing<br />

requirements of its customer<br />

Ardagh Glass.<br />

Project engineer at Ardagh<br />

Glass Ian Beach approached<br />

Noshe with a requirement to<br />

combine different bottles from<br />

two separate conveyor lines<br />

PACKAGING<br />

either on a ‘one to one’ basis or<br />

any selected number. Building<br />

on the success of its intelligent<br />

starwheels, the new starwheel<br />

combiner<br />

SYSTEMS<br />

consists of an<br />

intelligent starwheel on each<br />

line, where their operation<br />

is slightly offset to ensure<br />

the smooth meshing of the<br />

bottles, says Noshe.<br />

Once set, the units<br />

continuously monitor their<br />

offset and synchronising to<br />

ensure it remains constant.<br />

To cater for additional<br />

customer requirements, the<br />

system can be operated in<br />

standard and/or advanced<br />

modes. In the standard mode,<br />

the unit combines on a ‘one<br />

to one’ basis, however if one<br />

infeed line becomes starved<br />

of bottles, the other will run<br />

at a higher speed to maintain<br />

constant throughput.<br />

In advanced mode, the<br />

unit will combine on a ‘one<br />

to one’ basis (or any selected<br />

number) but will pause if<br />

either infeed line becomes<br />

starved. To ensure the correct<br />

pack format, when both lines<br />

are primed with bottles, it will<br />

restart ensuring the correct<br />

bottle is released first.<br />

The combiner has been<br />

installed at Ardagh’s plant in<br />

Sweden and has proved to<br />

be extremely successful in<br />

operation. “The starwheel<br />

combiner has exceeded our<br />

expectations and we look<br />

forward to working with Noshe<br />

on future projects,” says Beach.<br />

a specific problem<br />

surrounding windscreen<br />

washers fitted in Jaguars,<br />

BMWs and Volvos that are<br />

produced by Flexi-Cell UK.<br />

The company was<br />

experiencing blockages in<br />

the tubing it produced which<br />

stopped it from working in<br />

the end applications. These<br />

blockages in the tubing caused<br />

problems with the flow of fluid<br />

through to the washer.<br />

CONTINUOUS LENGTHS<br />

100,000<br />

metres per manufacturing<br />

automotive product specialist<br />

“We couldn’t find a way<br />

round it in-house, so we were<br />

desperate for a solution,”<br />

explains Flexi-Cell project<br />

manager John English.<br />

Anritsu devised an x-ray<br />

system that integrates into the<br />

manufacturing process line to<br />

detect any of these faults.<br />

Rubber tubing is extruded<br />

in continuous lengths and<br />

if the x-ray system detects<br />

any blockage, it activates an<br />

alarm and a printer to spray<br />

yellow paint on the tubing<br />

where the blockage has<br />

occurred. This faulty section<br />

is then discarded so it cannot<br />

enter the windscreen washer<br />

manufacturing process.<br />

Flexi-Cell chose Antritsu to<br />

supply the x-ray system after<br />

approaching a number of<br />

companies with the specific<br />

challenge. “I contacted each<br />

company to see which ones<br />

were prepared to run trials<br />

with us and Antritsu were the<br />

only company to offer that,”<br />

A fully automated case erecting<br />

and sealing line installed by<br />

Endoline Machinery that can<br />

form and seal up to 850 twin<br />

walled boxes of potatoes per hour<br />

has enabled Lincolnshire based<br />

Bennett Potatoes to not only<br />

fulfil its need for improved pack<br />

presentation but also increased<br />

throughput by 35% per hour<br />

on a line which achieves an annual<br />

output of over 35,000 tonnes<br />

of potatoes.<br />

Bennett Potatoes supplies a<br />

wide variety of potatoes in bags<br />

or sacks however its baker-sized<br />

potatoes are boxed into cartons.<br />

To endure the weight of the<br />

filled boxes Bennett’s required<br />

twin walled boxes which can be<br />

difficult to form on an automatic<br />

case erecting system as there is<br />

a high risk of failure due to the<br />

heavy board that needs to be<br />

opened and folded.<br />

Consequently Endoline<br />

installed its fully automatic<br />

221 case erector which has an<br />

integrated dual opposing vacuum<br />

technology using two vacuum<br />

systems for consistent, positive<br />

opening of the case. The machine<br />

also includes pneumatic rockets<br />

which open the outer case flaps<br />

before the inner case flaps, which<br />

overcomes issues with folding the<br />

case flaps that more conventional<br />

Seven SVC 4020 vertical form, fill and seal machines from Bosch are now in action at Mydibel’s Belgium factory<br />

Achilled, frozen and<br />

dehydrated potato<br />

products company has<br />

installed seven vertical form,<br />

fill and seal machines to fulfil<br />

increased volume demand for<br />

its range of products that are<br />

marketed as a high quality<br />

offering.<br />

Mydibel is a Belgium based<br />

food producer that processes<br />

150 million bags (225,000<br />

tonnes) of finished potato<br />

products each year marketed<br />

under its own name as well<br />

as private label brands.<br />

Key to its success is its<br />

commitment to consistently<br />

delivering the highest product<br />

quality. “The first thing our<br />

customers see is the bag, so it<br />

has to look perfect,” explains<br />

Roger Mylle who founded<br />

Mydibel in 1988.<br />

Bosch Packaging<br />

Technology’s vertical SVC<br />

4020 was chosen to pack<br />

these potato products in 500g<br />

to 2.5kg pillow packs at speeds<br />

of up to 70 bags a minute.<br />

It was also selected because<br />

its continuous motion solution<br />

was designed to prevent<br />

contamination and allow for<br />

simple cleaning.<br />

Meeting the latest hygienic<br />

design standards and<br />

requirements for Mydibel is<br />

of paramount importance<br />

especially with the increased<br />

emphasis on food safety<br />

demanded by today’s<br />

consumers, customers and<br />

international authorities.<br />

“Quality is the essence<br />

of the Mydibel<br />

philosophy and we<br />

expect the same<br />

from our suppliers,”<br />

says Mydibel<br />

Group ceo Carlo<br />

Mylle. “The SVC<br />

bagger from<br />

Bosch meets<br />

our needs<br />

perfectly as<br />

thanks to<br />

its easyto-clean<br />

design,<br />

high quality bags<br />

and flexible set up, the new<br />

technology helps us to keep<br />

our customers happy and<br />

loyal to our brand.”<br />

The SVC has many features<br />

that make it ideal for hygienic<br />

packaging environments<br />

and its design allows for<br />

the highest hygiene levels,<br />

says Bosch.<br />

Contamination is prevented<br />

by having rulers engraved<br />

for easy and thorough<br />

cleaning. Additionally, tilted<br />

surfaces and rounded corners<br />

means potato residues are<br />

not trapped, reducing the<br />

possibility of any bacterial<br />

build up and ensuring the<br />

consistent high quality of<br />

Mydibel products.<br />

Mydibel operators benefit<br />

from the open frame design<br />

of the bagger<br />

and user<br />

friendly HMI<br />

which further<br />

contributes to<br />

time savings on<br />

maintenance,<br />

cleaning and<br />

running.<br />

The SVC offers<br />

bag sizes from 260<br />

– 400mm and is able<br />

to run pillow, block<br />

bottom, gusseted and<br />

corner seal bag styles.<br />

It also offers heat seal,<br />

PE sealing and ultrasonic<br />

sealing technologies.<br />

“The SVC 4020 is 20-25%<br />

faster than the previous<br />

generation of vertical baggers<br />

and technologically more<br />

advanced,” points out Mylle.<br />

“It reduces product waste and<br />

also downtime.”<br />

Thermoformers answer need<br />

for increased smoked salmon<br />

Capacity as well as<br />

cost problems for its<br />

increasing smoked<br />

salmon slice business have<br />

been overcome at Young’s<br />

Seafood with the installation<br />

of two thermoforming<br />

packaging lines from<br />

Multivac. Indeed, the new<br />

lines have performed so well<br />

that a follow-up order has<br />

already been placed.<br />

Prior to installation, the<br />

smoked salmon slices had<br />

been placed by hand in film<br />

pouches and then vacuumpacked<br />

manually. This was a<br />

time consuming procedure,<br />

which was no longer practical<br />

given the increasing demand,<br />

since it limited the production<br />

quantities and was very<br />

labour-intensive. Higher<br />

requirements by a supermarket<br />

customer with regard to the<br />

type and appearance of<br />

the packaging also contributed<br />

to the need to automate.<br />

The fish producer’s<br />

requirements of its processing<br />

and packaging procedures are<br />

very high and the investment<br />

was based on a projected<br />

labour saving of several<br />

The HMI makes operation simple<br />

The two Multivac lines are arranged parallel to each other so that both can be operated from the same point<br />

people per year that could be<br />

deployed elsewhere in the<br />

business.<br />

After the specification had<br />

been defined and the costs of<br />

the project had been approved<br />

by the company management,<br />

Young’s conducted a<br />

selection procedure with<br />

several packaging machine<br />

manufacturers. From this,<br />

Multivac emerged as the victor<br />

in May 2014 and just three<br />

months later, two automated<br />

thermoforming packaging<br />

lines were operating at the<br />

production site in Grimsby.<br />

Young’s had decided on<br />

two R 245 thermoforming<br />

packaging machines.<br />

Here, the thermoformed pack<br />

cavities in flexible film are<br />

loaded with a thin board,<br />

onto which the smoked<br />

salmon slices are arranged<br />

attractively. The pack is then<br />

sealed with a printed upper<br />

and base web and then<br />

labelled. The finished packs<br />

are picked and packed in<br />

boxes manually.<br />

This partially automated<br />

process enables Young’s to<br />

achieve higher productivity:<br />

the two R 245 machines<br />

operate at ten to twelve<br />

cycles per minute. Each cycle<br />

produces up to eight packs<br />

of salmon which in practice,<br />

sees the production quantity<br />

increasing to up to 96 packs<br />

per minute.<br />

Thanks to their high level<br />

of automation, the<br />

thermoforming<br />

packaging<br />

machines have<br />

also increased<br />

the process<br />

reliability and<br />

flexibility of<br />

production<br />

enormously.<br />

With the<br />

machines’<br />

640mm long<br />

forming dies,<br />

Young’s can<br />

produce<br />

both 640mm<br />

and 532mm die format cut<br />

off lengths, reducing the<br />

number of changeparts and<br />

changeover time dramatically.<br />

The lifting units of the<br />

R 245’s are operated by<br />

servo motors, so that their<br />

movements can be very<br />

precisely controlled as regards<br />

to speed and opening width.<br />

This means that the lifting<br />

unit movements can be ideally<br />

Excellent presentation is achieved<br />

matched to different film<br />

thicknesses and speed can be<br />

optimised accordingly.<br />

The two packaging lines are<br />

each rounded off with a cross<br />

web labeller and MR293 direct<br />

web printer – both of which<br />

are from Multivac. Finally the<br />

packs are<br />

converged<br />

using H050<br />

channelisers<br />

which are<br />

adept at<br />

handling<br />

lighter packs.<br />

These two<br />

lines are<br />

running<br />

so well that<br />

a further<br />

order<br />

has been<br />

received.<br />

The heart of this new line<br />

will be a R 575 thermoforming<br />

packaging machine which is<br />

suitable for the production of<br />

MultiFresh vacuum skin packs<br />

– an application by which<br />

manufacturers and packers<br />

can give their high-value fish<br />

products a particularly long<br />

Biscuit wrap<br />

line provides<br />

stack variety<br />

A particularly versatile feeding<br />

and wrapping line, capable of<br />

presenting stacked biscuits in a<br />

variety of different formats,<br />

has been built for a major<br />

European bakery by SPS Italiana<br />

Pack Systems, part of the Italian<br />

PFM Group.<br />

Many stack formats are created<br />

Formats chosen by the bakery<br />

include single and twin stacks of<br />

both round and square products<br />

as well as larger packs with<br />

up to four stacks supported<br />

by a U-board tray, created on<br />

the wrapping machine from<br />

reelstock. Speed is up to 1600<br />

biscuits a minute.<br />

“Demand for machinery to<br />

create portion packs of biscuits<br />

has grown substantially over the<br />

past few years, reflecting the<br />

trend towards more snacking,”<br />

says PFM sales and operations<br />

director Chris Bolton.<br />

“This line provides the<br />

opportunity to switch easily<br />

between products and formats.”<br />

The SPS line includes a<br />

handling arrangement to accept<br />

biscuits from cooling with lane<br />

reduction from 20 to 10 and<br />

24 to 12, before feeding into a<br />

stack formation system that<br />

is programmable for variable<br />

quantities. Here, the biscuits<br />

are shingled at a low angle, which<br />

can be increased towards vertical<br />

to provide buffer storage should<br />

the flow wrapper need to be<br />

stopped for any reason.<br />

Coding offline to meet<br />

retail dessert pot needs<br />

An RF2 offline sleeve<br />

coding system from<br />

Rotech has given Pots &<br />

Co a flexible coding solution,<br />

enabling the rapidly growing<br />

artisan dessert producer to<br />

take on and fulfil major retail<br />

contracts while minimising<br />

capital outlay.<br />

Pots & Co produces a retail<br />

range of high end desserts<br />

which are handmade and<br />

packed in individual ceramic<br />

ramekins with plastic lids and<br />

an outer cardboard sleeve.<br />

The boutique company has<br />

grown exponentially since it<br />

was founded by Julian Dyer<br />

in 2010 and today, it produces<br />

60,000 desserts a week which<br />

are destined for 500 Tesco<br />

stores, 300 Waitrose stores and<br />

other retailers such as Booths<br />

and Selfridges.<br />

These volume increases has<br />

meant its coding requirements<br />

have also changed which is<br />

why it installed an RF2 friction<br />

feed overprinting system.<br />

As the dessert production<br />

process is completely manual,<br />

Pots & Co wanted an offline<br />

coder while also requiring a<br />

fast coder.<br />

“We produce between 10,000<br />

and 12,000 desserts a day, five<br />

days week, depending on what<br />

offers we have on with Tesco<br />

or Waitrose,” explains Pots &<br />

Co operations director Fraser<br />

Thomson. “We needed a coder<br />

that could keep pace with those<br />

Desserts are packed in ramekins with plastic lids and an outer sleeve<br />

volumes.” The RF2 standalone<br />

system allows the company to<br />

code sleeves offline and bring<br />

them to the production line<br />

already printed. Engineered<br />

specifically for the food<br />

industry, the RF2 uses<br />

Rotech’s stack-to-stack feeding<br />

technology to pick sleeves<br />

from a stack, accurately print<br />

date or batch codes, and place<br />

the printed sleeve neatly onto<br />

another stack for collection,<br />

The standalone friction feed overprinting system operates at 400 a minute<br />

all at speeds of 400 a minute.<br />

In this way, Pots & Co could<br />

pre-code the sleeves for an<br />

entire day’s production in less<br />

than an hour.<br />

The system, which has<br />

been in use at Pots & Co since<br />

last May, is running off about<br />

60,000 sleeves per week.<br />

“The RF2 prints date and<br />

batch codes with ease in the<br />

correct position each and<br />

every time and we no longer<br />

have the worry of poorly<br />

printed eligible codes which<br />

can be resultant of hand<br />

stamping,” says Thomson.<br />

Also, when Pots & Co<br />

launched a new duo pot<br />

format towards the end of<br />

last year, it had problems<br />

running the new sleeve on the<br />

Rotech machine but further<br />

modifications have allowed<br />

these new, glossy sleeves to<br />

run reliably.<br />

Large continuous mixer brings<br />

industrial waste back to ‘clean’<br />

JR Boone has supplied a<br />

large continuous mixer<br />

to Augean PLC to ensure<br />

industrial waste is made safe<br />

for landfill in a cost effective<br />

and efficient manner.<br />

The company has a<br />

successful track record with<br />

Augean, having previously<br />

supplied a 6-tonne batch<br />

paddle mixer to the company<br />

for a similar application.<br />

Although Augean did compare<br />

JR Boone mixers with others<br />

for this new contract, the<br />

successful history along with<br />

a competitive quote, led to the<br />

deal being awarded to Boone.<br />

This latest mixer is<br />

processing industrial<br />

waste prior to land filling<br />

at Augean’s Kings Cliffe<br />

site near Peterborough.<br />

The horizontal paddle mixer is<br />

capable of processing up to<br />

720 cubic metres of material<br />

per eight hour shift, mixing and<br />

consolidating the waste to form<br />

a stable material, allowing<br />

non-compliant WAC (Waste<br />

Acceptance Criteria) materials<br />

to become safe for landfill.<br />

The use is a heavy duty<br />

application and the materials<br />

JR Boone has installed this mixer at Augean in Peterborough to process industrial waste prior to land filling<br />

being processed are highly<br />

abrasive, so the contra-flow<br />

mixer paddles mounted<br />

within the U shaped mixing<br />

chamber are made from wear<br />

resistant ‘Abro Steel’.<br />

Based on its experiences<br />

in the previous installation,<br />

Augean requested a couple of<br />

key additions, ‘bomb doors’<br />

Crisp wraps stretched<br />

to achieve cost saving<br />

Seabrook Crisps has not<br />

only reduced its<br />

material costs<br />

with the installation of<br />

two new stretchwrappers<br />

but increased load<br />

containment of its<br />

palletised boxes. Indeed,<br />

projected cost savings over<br />

the next three years stand at<br />

about £50,000 with a £4,000<br />

saving in the first year despite<br />

the cost of the new machines.<br />

Manufacturing manager at<br />

Seabrook Crisps Lee Burkill is<br />

tasked with keeping abreast<br />

of the latest technologies<br />

that can reduce costs while<br />

increasing operational<br />

efficiencies. “It’s my job to<br />

maintain an efficient and cost<br />

effective operation without<br />

compromising the quality<br />

of our product, which is our<br />

number one priority,” he says.<br />

“So when the guys at Antalis<br />

Packaging recommended a<br />

new and more efficient stretch<br />

wrapping solution that would<br />

not only save us money, but<br />

also increase the integrity of<br />

our palletised crisp boxes, we<br />

were keen to listen.”<br />

The packaging and<br />

logistics department at the<br />

crisp producer had been<br />

struggling with its existing<br />

stretch wrapping system<br />

for some time, which was<br />

subject to frequent downtime<br />

through film breakages,<br />

as well as failing to cope<br />

with the fragility of the boxes<br />

when obtaining the right film<br />

tension to contain the load<br />

securely in transit.<br />

A Lantech semi-automatic<br />

stretch wrapper was trialled to<br />

prove the operational benefits<br />

A number of pallets were<br />

therefore taken off site to trial<br />

a Lantech semi-automatic<br />

stretch wrapping solution,<br />

used in conjunction with<br />

a new stretch film offered by<br />

Antalis Packaging<br />

called FiberFilm.<br />

“The results were<br />

outstanding and it<br />

was clear that by<br />

investing in new<br />

equipment and<br />

switching to a<br />

superior stretch<br />

film, we would not<br />

only increase<br />

output, we could<br />

also see there were<br />

significant cost<br />

savings to be achieved,” says<br />

Burkill.<br />

This also gave Burkill the<br />

evidence he needed to get<br />

the company’s commitment<br />

to invest in two<br />

new Lantech semiautomatic<br />

Q300<br />

stretch wrapping<br />

solutions fitted<br />

with special mast<br />

extensions to cope<br />

with the 2.2m high<br />

crisp pallets, and<br />

also switch use to<br />

FiberFilm.<br />

“Previously,<br />

we were using on<br />

average around<br />

250gm of standard<br />

stretch film per<br />

pallet, but with<br />

the new Lantech/<br />

FiberFilm<br />

solution, we have<br />

got this down to<br />

around 85gm per<br />

pallet,” says<br />

Burkill.<br />

“So, not only are<br />

we using less film,<br />

the cost per roll is<br />

also less giving us<br />

a double saving.”<br />

Cartoning is<br />

collaborative<br />

for Weetabix<br />

Kliklok has worked closely with<br />

the Weetabix Food Company over<br />

recent years and has installed a<br />

number of automatic cartoning<br />

lines at its Kettering site to<br />

pack Alpen cereal bars and<br />

Weetabix biscuits.<br />

Due to layout changes in<br />

one of the packing lines at the<br />

Kettering site, Kliklok is now<br />

working on another new project<br />

to automatically accept wraps of<br />

biscuits arriving ‘on edge’ from<br />

a buffer storage unit and rotating<br />

them through 90 degrees, prior<br />

to being cartoned. To achieve<br />

this, Kliklok is designing two<br />

modified versions of its rotary<br />

transfer system (RTS). This is a<br />

continuous motion system that<br />

uses a series of turret arms which<br />

rotate in a cam track, the arms<br />

then lower and close a ‘pocket’<br />

around the product to provide<br />

a gentle 90 degree transfer<br />

at speeds of up to 220 products<br />

per minute.<br />

The two new RTS units are<br />

scheduled for installation over<br />

the coming months.<br />

For Alpen bars, Weetabix<br />

chose a pair of Kliklok’s ECT500<br />

top load carton/glue erectors,<br />

which were modified to run a<br />

5-pack and 10-pack, while another<br />

success was a joint project with<br />

CKF Systems, providing two<br />

automated lines for wrapped<br />

packs of Weetabix biscuits.<br />

Each line included Kliklok’s<br />

Celox cartoner, running at speeds<br />

up to 200 cartons per minute,<br />

and incorporating laser coders,<br />

BARA (British Automation & Robot Association) believes that having the latest robots in colleges would help attract students to engineering<br />

Robots are the answer<br />

Chairman of BARA Mike Wilson argues that robots can not only address<br />

labour shortages but also play a key role in exciting young engineers<br />

Food manufacturing employs<br />

more people, about 400,000,<br />

than any other manufacturing<br />

sector in the UK but is facing<br />

challenges in terms of an aging<br />

workforce. It is predicted that 40% of the<br />

employees, about 160,000 people, will<br />

need to be replaced by 2020. This will<br />

impact all aspects of these businesses<br />

including engineers, team leaders<br />

and managers.<br />

Migrant workers have provided<br />

a significant source of labour and<br />

currently account for about 20% of the<br />

workforce. However, this will prove more<br />

challenging in the future, partly due to<br />

increasing restrictions on immigration<br />

and also as many, particularly Eastern<br />

Europeans, return to their home countries<br />

as they in turn develop and employment<br />

prospects improve.<br />

To minimise the impact of this potential<br />

labour shortage it is necessary to ensure<br />

the workforce is utilised as efficiently as<br />

possible and not undertaking mundane,<br />

arduous or repetitive tasks. These can<br />

and should be handled by automation.<br />

In most cases, there is a need for flexibility,<br />

to ensure the changing requirements of<br />

consumers and the retail outlets can be<br />

met. Therefore the use of robot solutions<br />

should be high on the priorities of all food<br />

manufacturers.<br />

However, this presents other challenges,<br />

particularly the lack of knowledge and<br />

experience regarding the implementation<br />

and operation of robot systems within<br />

the food sector. There have been many<br />

successful installations but these are<br />

only the start and there needs to be a step<br />

change in the implementation of robots<br />

if the challenges of the labour shortages<br />

are to be addressed.<br />

The Food and Drink Federation,<br />

supported by many of the major member<br />

companies, is driving significant growth<br />

in the numbers of technical apprentices.<br />

This will be part of the solution but we<br />

also need more engineers to implement<br />

these automation solutions. The food<br />

sector is competing with many other<br />

industrial sectors for the best engineers.<br />

To meet these demands we need to<br />

increase the number of engineers coming<br />

out of our universities and colleges.<br />

This requires more students to be excited<br />

by engineering when they are at school.<br />

Robotics provides an excellent tool which<br />

can generate this excitement and interest.<br />

There are annual Lego robot competitions<br />

Our automation,<br />

robotics and vision<br />

feature starts here and<br />

continues over the<br />

next 26 pages – enjoy!<br />

and many schools already participate.<br />

However, when these same school<br />

children look at colleges they see outdated<br />

equipment which provides the wrong<br />

image for engineering. If many more of<br />

our colleges had robotic equipment<br />

this would build on the interest already<br />

stimulated in schools and encourage more<br />

to take engineering courses.<br />

ENGINEERING EDUCATION<br />

Robots also provide an excellent tool<br />

for engineering education because they<br />

encompass mechanical, electrical,<br />

electronic and software engineering<br />

as well as providing an opportunity<br />

to perform ‘real world’ projects. If our<br />

Government really wishes to assist<br />

UK manufacturing to grow and prosper<br />

it could do a lot worse than providing<br />

funds to colleges to invest in the latest<br />

industrial robot technologies.<br />

In the overall scheme of things the<br />

actual investment would not be that high<br />

and the return, in terms of increasing<br />

numbers of engineers, for all of our<br />

industry including food manufacturing,<br />

would be very significant. With engineers<br />

in place we would then be able to<br />

implement the automation solutions<br />

required to utilise our workforces<br />

effectively and address the future labour<br />

shortages, leading to more competitive<br />

and more profitable businesses. This in<br />

turn leads to a more prosperous economy<br />

with resulting benefits for all.

Feature: Automation, robotics and vision<br />

Looking to<br />

the future<br />

with vision<br />

Machinery Update talks to members of<br />

UKIVA about the latest developments that<br />

will ‘enable’ vision to progress even further<br />

as well as some of the newer applications<br />

SUMMARY<br />

VISION TRENDS<br />

The ever-expanding range of<br />

uses for vision systems serves to<br />

reinforce the concept of vision<br />

as an ‘enabling technology’<br />

which, says UKIVA (UK<br />

Industrial Vision Association) members<br />

is set to continue into the future.<br />

As well as, of course, any completely new<br />

developments that are still in the pipeline.<br />

The recent announcement that Sony<br />

will discontinue wafer production of its<br />

CCD image sensors in 2016, leading to a<br />

phased withdrawal of their availability,<br />

has paved the way for an increased<br />

emphasis on cameras with CMOS sensors.<br />

“CCD imagers have traditionally given<br />

the best image quality, but CMOS sensors<br />

proved popular because of their lower<br />

cost and their ability to support higher<br />

frame rates,” says Mark Williamson of<br />

Stemmer Imaging. “Now we are seeing a<br />

new generation of CMOS sensors which<br />

are actually outperforming CCDs in terms<br />

of image quality as well.”<br />

Steve Hearn at IDS Imaging &<br />

Development Systems agrees. “The huge<br />

developments in CMOS sensor technology<br />

led us to stop engineering new CCD<br />

cameras three years ago to concentrate<br />

solely on CMOS cameras,” he says.<br />

Ian Alderton from Alrad Imaging notes,<br />

however, that CCD sensors available from<br />

other manufacturers will still be utilised<br />

in lower volume applications. He also<br />

points out that new CMOS sensors are<br />

leading to cameras with higher frame<br />

rates at higher resolution. “This means<br />

that some applications that were only<br />

possible using line scan cameras can<br />

now be handled by area scan cameras,”<br />

he says. “The extra data produced by<br />

these cameras can be handled by both<br />

the popular GigE Vision standard and the<br />

newer USB3 Vision standard.”<br />

3D ROBOT GUIDANCE<br />

Interestingly, 3D imaging continues<br />

to be the most frequently visited page<br />

on the ‘What is Vision’ section on the<br />

UKIVA website (see end of article) and<br />

Paul Wilson of Scorpion Vision believes<br />

that 3D robot guidance will change the<br />

landscape, especially within the food<br />

manufacturing industry.<br />

“3D is a very robust way of achieving<br />

robot guidance because it is less likely to<br />

fail due to changing ambient conditions,”<br />

says Wilson. “In addition, the wide<br />

range of 3D methods available means<br />

that the best one can be chosen to suit<br />

■ ■ Increased emphasis on cameras with<br />

CMOS sensors<br />

■ ■ Continuing growth of 3D imaging<br />

■ ■ Correct illumination is a crucial factor<br />

■ ■ Vision providing Industry 4.0 data<br />

the application. He also believes that<br />

the use of multiple sensors and multiple<br />

light sources in one housing creates very<br />

flexible 3D systems.<br />

Alun Reece at Loop Technology reports<br />

on dynamic labelling applications where<br />

the use of 3D imaging allows robots to<br />

Vision systems have also been used in<br />

conjunction with ‘collaborative robots’ to<br />

reduce production speeds, according to<br />

Ying Zhang at RNA Automation.<br />

Getting the illumination correct<br />

is a crucial factor in a vision system.<br />

LEDs have become the most widely<br />

used illumination sources, but novel<br />

approaches to illumination control<br />

can bring further benefits. Stemmer’s<br />

Williamson believes that integrating<br />

lighting control with the operation<br />

of the camera offers a plug and play<br />

approach that can allow non-expert<br />

users access to expert machine vision

more suitable products become readily<br />

available and are designed with OEM’s in<br />

mind. “This trend is further enhanced by<br />

the increased support now available for<br />

embedded OS/processors from machine<br />

vision software products to allow mobile<br />

and compact vision solutions to be<br />

created,” she says.<br />

Steve Hearn from IDS agrees.<br />

“A growing number of ARM-processorbased<br />

single board computers such<br />

as Raspberry Pi can be equipped with<br />

cameras for imaging applications,” he<br />

tells Machinery Update.<br />

Here, robots automatically apply labels based on 3D vision identification of the product<br />

lighting techniques. “Other approaches<br />

include producing image sequences using<br />

different illumination methods for special<br />

processing to measure difficult surfaces<br />

such as reflective ones,” he says.<br />

“Imaging using different wavelengths<br />

such as hyperspectral imaging is also<br />

gaining importance.”<br />

Ian Alderton from Alrad Imaging<br />

also sees applications using non-visible<br />

wavelengths gaining more popularity,<br />

INDUSTRY 4.0<br />

Vision is already fundamentally involved<br />

in many factory automation projects<br />

and will inevitably become a part of<br />

developments in the automation of<br />

manufacturing processes as outlined<br />

in ‘Industry 4.0’. Allan Anderson at<br />

Clearview Imaging sees this as being<br />

particularly important for the vision<br />

industry. “As image sensor resolutions<br />

and scan rates increase, vision systems<br />

will produce ever-increasing amounts<br />

of data,” he says. Stewart Jackson at<br />

Bytronic Automation highlights the<br />

importance of connectivity between<br />

systems and the interchange of data for<br />

Industry 4.0.<br />

“For example, it will be necessary for<br />

vision systems to be fully compatible with<br />

generic industry standards such as OPC<br />

used in PLC operation so that data could be<br />

accessed from all OPC servers,” he says.<br />

Vacuum grippers<br />

bring benefits to<br />

many industries<br />

It is not just the sheer range<br />

of vacuum gripping solutions<br />

available from French supplier<br />

Joulin that has ensured its<br />

success in the UK and Ireland<br />

over the years, but also the<br />

technical back up and expertise<br />

that comes with them.<br />

Long term customer Robotics<br />

& Drives, for instance, is entering<br />

its fourth year of trading and<br />

continues to be impressed with<br />

the company and its UK and<br />

Ireland agent MAR. “What we<br />

get from Joulin is a solution; not<br />

just a collection of parts but a<br />

working solution, and whatever<br />

level of technical cooperation and<br />

testing is appropriate to the job in<br />

hand,” explains Stephen Nolan,<br />

engineering director at Robotics<br />

& Drives, ABB’s premier Authorised<br />

Value Provider in the Republic of<br />

Ireland.<br />

“Support is important and our<br />

experience is that Joulin does not<br />

fail on support,” he continues.<br />

“If there is a problem whatever the<br />

reason, whether or not the gripper<br />

is already in production, the<br />

support is always there including<br />

engineering backup from France<br />

if required and they have never<br />

walked away.”<br />

Ray Bland of MAR, agent for<br />

Joulin Aero’s range of specialist<br />

vacuum grippers, is also happy<br />

with some of the recent projects<br />

as they illustrate the diversity<br />

of products the grippers can<br />

reliably handle. MAR supplied a<br />

Joulin custom valved gripper for<br />

retrofitting to an existing robot<br />

that was depalletising rows of<br />

plastic lids for jars at a major<br />

drinks manufacturer, for instance.<br />

The embossed lip running around<br />

the periphery of the light plastic<br />

lids had caused the previous<br />

vacuum grippers to drop a<br />

relatively large proportion of<br />

the lids, an issue which has now<br />

been largely overcome.<br />

“Joulin’s ability to ‘tune’ the<br />

grippers’ internal design to an<br />

application has ensured robust<br />

Gripping all<br />

before them<br />

Handling canned<br />

vegetables, the<br />

Joulin valved<br />

custom gripper is<br />

depalletising<br />

open aluminium<br />

cans<br />

handling and as a result, the<br />

dropping of lids is now almost<br />

completely eliminated,” Bland<br />

tells Machinery Update.<br />

Robotics & Drives has also<br />

supplied Joulin grippers on its own<br />

applications. One project was also a<br />

retrofit, this time to a multi-national<br />

company robotically palletising<br />

boxes in an atmosphere laden with<br />

dust from the boxed products.<br />

The existing gripper required<br />

continuing maintenance to prevent<br />

the dust from causing the grippers<br />

to drop the boxes.<br />

The Joulin gripper, however,<br />

What we get from Joulin<br />

is a working solution, not just<br />

a collection of various parts<br />

is virtually impervious to dust<br />

and debris which was why the<br />

PalletiserPro was chosen.<br />

In another application,<br />

Robotics & Drives fitted Joulin<br />

valveless FlexiGrips in a robotic<br />

handling application performing<br />

precise vertical placing of porous<br />

cardboard edge protectors.<br />

Joulin first developed the<br />

multi-aperture or universal<br />

vacuum gripper more than<br />

50 years ago, but continued<br />

development has resulted in a<br />

wide and varied capability, with a<br />

range of standard sizes available.<br />

Bland says all Joulin grippers are<br />

price-competitive within their<br />

market and come complete and<br />

operational, ready for interfacing<br />

to robots or other deployment<br />

equipment.<br />

Machinery Update<br />

talks to Sick about<br />

its smart sensors<br />

Sick has built powerful<br />

new functions into<br />

everyday sensors to<br />

deliver a glimpse of the<br />

future for manufacturing<br />

automation. These sensors are<br />

designed to deliver huge potential<br />

in additional flexibility, reliability<br />

and throughput for automated<br />

production tasks, as well as<br />

reducing costs and quality issues.<br />

Smart sensors are a complete step<br />

forward in sensing performance,<br />

equipping photoelectric, magnetic<br />

and proximity sensors with<br />

powerful on-board processing<br />

capability to optimise machine<br />

technologies and automation on<br />

high speed production lines.<br />

As chip technology has enabled<br />

more functionality to be packed<br />

into ever more miniature devices,<br />

Sick has identified opportunities<br />

to integrate advanced automation<br />

capability into the sensors<br />

themselves.<br />

“By building advanced<br />

intelligence into standard sensors,<br />

we have made sensors ‘Smart’ and<br />

achieved a world first,” claims<br />

David Hannaby, product manager<br />

for presence detection at Sick UK.<br />

“Smart sensors perform complex<br />

process functions locally moving<br />

them away from the PLC to the<br />

sensor itself.<br />

“Real time events can be locally<br />

processed, without waiting for<br />

the raw data to be uploaded to the<br />

central PLC program, processed<br />

and information extracted before<br />

action,” he continues. “Speed<br />

restrictions due to heavily-loaded<br />

How smart sensors work in practice<br />

Sensing in a<br />

clever mode<br />

Powerful new<br />

functions have<br />

been built into<br />

the new smart<br />

sensor range<br />

from Sick UK<br />

networks are avoided and demands<br />

on the central computing functions<br />

are massively reduced.”<br />

Advanced functions that<br />

have already been developed by<br />

Sick for smart sensors include a<br />

high speed counter, timer, false<br />

tripping suppression, a speed and<br />

acceleration monitor and time<br />

based measurement function to<br />

track and identify products for<br />

sortation and picking. Currently,<br />

typical sensors that can be<br />

specified with these functions<br />

include the W4S-3, WTB12-3<br />

and WL12-3.<br />

Smart sensors build on the<br />

existing sensor capabilities and can<br />

also share the results and data with<br />

the control system PLCs via IO-Link<br />

using standard sensor cables.<br />

A wide selection of IO-link gateway<br />

cards are available from the major<br />

PLC manufacturers to integrate<br />

smart sensors into automation<br />

networks; with smart sensors able to<br />

multi-task, many traditional sensor<br />

tasks can be combined, reducing<br />

equipment costs.<br />

In operation, embedding a<br />

high speed counting function<br />

into a smart sensor enables high<br />

performance monitoring and<br />

measurement of machine speeds,<br />

leading to accurate detection and<br />

counting. So, for example, an<br />

optical sensor can detect and<br />

count products on a production<br />

line and transfer the results to the<br />

control system.<br />

A smart sensor can also use<br />

time based position measurement<br />

to calculate product length, or<br />

distance between objects on a<br />

high speed conveyor, to ensure<br />

they are the right size or in<br />

precisely the right position, for<br />

example for picking or dimensions<br />

measurements of packs.<br />

With the ability to suppress<br />

false signals (debouncing) from<br />

an anomalous triggering event<br />

in difficult environments such as<br />

sawdust and spray or with product<br />

protrusions, smart sensors can<br />

make real time decisions which<br />

reduce central computing load and<br />

network signal delays and errors.<br />

Enhanced quality<br />

and productivity<br />

are now offered<br />

Schubert first trialled<br />

3D scanners on its TLM<br />

packaging machines<br />

in 2013 and since then,<br />

customers have benefited<br />

from the increased product<br />

quality and productivity they<br />

have delivered. “In the correct<br />

application performance and<br />

yield uplifts are palpable benefits<br />

of employing the 3D scanning<br />

system,” explains Mark Jocelyn,<br />

sales director at Schubert UK.<br />

“The elimination to a large<br />

degree of good products not picked<br />

due to a contaminated product<br />

belt (by being able to set the lowest<br />

level of the vision system just above<br />

the product belt) has been one of<br />

the key benefits of the 3D scanner,”<br />

he continues. Better pack quality<br />

has also resulted as the 3D system<br />

can flag ‘out of spec’ products<br />

more easily.<br />

“The ability to measure specific<br />

heights to a tolerance of 0.5mm<br />

adds another control parameter<br />

to decide what goes into any given<br />

pack,” says Jocelyn. “Weight by<br />

volume can also be calculated with<br />

constant density products to give<br />

even further control.”<br />

The first 3D scanner was supplied<br />

for testing to the Belgian customer<br />

Délices de Comines, who already<br />

had several Schubert machines in<br />

use. The site specialises in coconutbased<br />

pastries and crispy rolled<br />

cookies within the Poppies group.<br />

As the company was already a<br />

customer of Schubert equipment,<br />

factory manager Mark Merket was<br />

able to make a direct comparison<br />

between the 3D scanner and the<br />

previous image-recognition<br />

systems.<br />

“Between the standard cleaning<br />

sequences, cleaning of the belt<br />

is not required at all,” he says,<br />

which has been a huge day to day<br />

benefit for the company. Products<br />

decorated with chocolate will<br />

colour the product belt with<br />

chocolate and this discolouration<br />

can fool common 2D detection<br />

systems, where products are<br />

3D scanner<br />

boosts yield<br />

Schubert says<br />

image<br />

recognition is<br />

a key feature<br />

for robots<br />

incorrectly assessed as being too<br />

large. As a result, belt cleaning<br />

had to be carried out frequently<br />

during production.<br />

“With the new system, this is<br />

no longer necessary,” he explains.<br />

And theoretically, a brown<br />

product can now be detected<br />

on a brown belt.<br />

“The 3D scanner therefore<br />

increases line availability and<br />

output,” he continues, “and this<br />

makes us more profitable.”<br />

This scanner is not only capable<br />

of detecting the location, shape and<br />

colour of products, but also their<br />

volume – thanks to the use of<br />

three dimensions – which has<br />

delivered an increase in quality<br />

control levels.<br />

Not all Schubert equipment<br />

incorporates a 3D scanner as<br />

there are additional equipment<br />

costs involved and the full<br />

functionality suite is not required<br />

in all applications. “Although some<br />

customers have wanted the full<br />

application at the outset to ensure<br />

immediate future capability, the<br />

ability to potentially upgrade at<br />

a later date (when the application<br />

requires) has satisfied others,”<br />

explains Jocelyn. “In other<br />

words, some applications are still<br />

covered fully with the existing<br />

2D technology where standard<br />

vision will give the functionality<br />

required.”<br />

The reputation of<br />

the Laïta dairy<br />

cooperative is built<br />

as much on the<br />

excellence of its<br />

products as on the quality of<br />

the relations it maintains with<br />

its members and with its staff.<br />

To accompany the increase<br />

in production volumes of<br />

the Madame Loïk whipped<br />

cheese range at its Créhen<br />

plant, Laïta chose a palletising<br />

solution from Cermex, part of<br />

the palletising/depalletising<br />

business unit of Gebo Cermex.<br />

Downstream from the<br />

filling operation, a Pal-Vite<br />

410 robotic palletising unit<br />

simplifies the transfer of<br />

tubs to the cooling room.<br />

In substance, it radically<br />

improves the well-being of<br />

the operators assigned to this<br />

task which was previously<br />

carried out manually.<br />

In addition to the required<br />

increase in output, Laïta<br />

has also benefited from the<br />

pressureless and almost<br />

individual handling of tubs<br />

during layer preparation.<br />

HOT FILLED TUBS<br />

For the whipped cheese range,<br />

the tubs are hot filled and<br />

then cooled by going through<br />

a cold room. Historically, the<br />

tubs were transferred from<br />

the filler to the cooling unit<br />

by conveying them onto an<br />

accumulation table at the end<br />

of the line accommodating up<br />

to 50 tubs. These tubs were<br />

then moved by hand onto<br />

metal racks stacked on top<br />

of each other on trolleys that<br />

were then wheeled to<br />

the cooling unit.<br />

Automating this process<br />

has accelerated the transfer<br />

towards the cooling unit while<br />

alleviating the repetitive<br />

task for operators. During<br />

the project, the logic of<br />

automating a second line<br />

became apparent and this<br />

new approach has reduced the<br />

arduousness of the manual<br />

work on both lines. Also, it<br />

was more cost effective to<br />

invest in one unit (with two<br />

product infeeds) that now<br />

When the dairy had to increase production rates, accelerating the manual transfer of tubes onto racks was discarded<br />

to spare the operators a task that was identified as being repetitive by the plant’s Health and Safety Committee<br />

Stemmer Imaging<br />

talks smart about<br />

3D camera options<br />

With a wide range<br />

of industrial 3D<br />

camera systems<br />

available, smart<br />

3D sensors such as<br />

the LMI Gocators set themselves<br />

apart by performing the 3D scan,<br />

measurement and control decisions<br />

all within a single, pre-calibrated<br />

device – the systems contain<br />

their own processor and also<br />

3D measurement software.<br />

Gocators are available in three<br />

variants: single point displacement<br />

sensors measure 3D thickness,<br />

height, and surface roughness<br />

while laser line profile sensors<br />

create cross-sectional profiles and<br />

by moving an object under the<br />

laser line, many profiles can be<br />

combined into a full 3D shape<br />

for volumetric analysis.<br />

Structured-light snapshot sensors<br />

provide powerful 3D visualisation<br />

from stationary objects.<br />

This choice addresses a wide<br />

variety of non-contact applications<br />

while 3D imaging systems also<br />

generate 2D image data and the<br />

addition of a comprehensive range<br />

of 2D inspection and measurement<br />

tools with full colour support has<br />

transformed the ‘smart’ capability<br />

of the Gocator. These tools include<br />

image pre-processing, edge<br />

detection, blob analysis, line, arc<br />

and circle fitting, edge and calliper<br />

measurement, and a flexible<br />

selection of geometry analysis<br />

functions.<br />

There is also a flexible set of<br />

functions to handle 1D barcodes<br />

and 2D array codes. By extending<br />

the 2D capabilities, many functions<br />

can now be performed within the<br />

camera itself rather than needing<br />

additional external PC processing,<br />

leading to a comprehensive<br />

2D and 3D solution.<br />

For applications where parts<br />

to be measured arrive at the<br />

camera in random orientations<br />

(for example on a production<br />

line) it was necessary either to<br />

mechanically realign them or<br />

use specialised image processing<br />

3D cameras<br />

get smarter<br />

The addition of a<br />

comprehensive<br />

range of 2D<br />

inspection and<br />

measurement<br />

tools with full<br />

colour support<br />

has transformed<br />

the ‘smart’<br />

capability of the<br />

Gocator<br />

on an external PC. The new<br />

geometric part location technology<br />

however, provides flexible and<br />

robust contour-based 2D pattern<br />

matching to locate parts and<br />

features regardless of their scale<br />

or orientation, removing the need<br />

for additional external image<br />

processing.<br />

It can also be used to<br />

differentiate highly similar<br />

parts or match one of many part<br />

models. The new part matching<br />

capability uses a powerful and<br />

flexible edge matching algorithm<br />

to automatically realign the part<br />

before measurement by Gocator.<br />

A master part is simply registered<br />

as a golden template and the<br />

inspection parameters are set up<br />

Significantly increased<br />

measurement accuracy and<br />

product quality is delivered<br />

relative to this. Parts arriving in<br />

any orientation are automatically<br />

re-aligned then inspected,<br />

resulting in significantly increased<br />

measurement accuracy, product<br />

quality and productivity.<br />

The new profile mode extends<br />

the capability of the Gocator<br />

displacement sensor to generate<br />

and inspect profiles of scanned<br />

parts. “This provides a cost<br />

effective alternative to the typical<br />

displacement sensor that requires<br />

heavy network bandwidth and<br />

a PC or an external controller<br />

to operate,” explains Mark<br />

Williamson of Stemmer. Profile<br />

mode builds 3D part profiles by<br />

intelligently combining high<br />

speed range data into a profile<br />

of the scanned part with flexible<br />

part detection logic that supports<br />

a range of acquisition methods<br />

such as fixed length of movement,<br />

digital input control status and<br />

height thresholding.<br />

Machinery Update<br />

talks to Quin about<br />

handling cases<br />

At the heart of the end of<br />

line equipment offered<br />

by Quin Systems is the<br />

Rtheta robot arm and<br />

pick and place head that<br />

allows products to be handled at<br />

high speed in one compact unit.<br />

This patented robot arm offers a<br />

large power to weight ratio and<br />

as well as being very fast, it is<br />

also robust enough to handle any<br />

production environment.<br />

When it was developed a decade<br />

ago, it was used in a case packer.<br />

Quin developed this machine that<br />

today, offers high speed case filling<br />

of up to 100 case layers a minute<br />

while being easy to integrate into a<br />

line as it can operate with any case<br />

erector. It is designed to be easy<br />

to set up and operate for different<br />

products and case sizes and<br />

importantly, is so compact<br />

that it can fit into existing hand<br />

packing factory space.<br />

The prototype of this machine<br />

was trialled at Fox’s Biscuits and<br />

it was so successful that it was<br />

never sent back. And more orders<br />

followed.<br />

Subsequently, Quin developed<br />

a combined case erecting and<br />

packing machine – called<br />

Versapack – which is based on the<br />

Endoline 200 Series compact case<br />

erector and the Rtheta high speed<br />

Mike Webb is md of Quin Systems<br />

Size matters<br />

for line ends<br />

Quin’s on-edge<br />

infeed system<br />

allows for fast<br />

handling of new<br />

style bag formats<br />

in one compact<br />

machine<br />

picking head to save even more<br />

space. As well as a small footprint,<br />

it offers the ability to pack products<br />

in almost any orientation,<br />

including ‘on-edge’. And still at<br />

high speed, typically 70 cycles<br />

a minute with a 2kg load.<br />

Payback is also attractive at<br />

between 12-18 months.<br />

In both of these machines, the<br />

robot arm acts as an enabler and<br />

achieves the space saving required<br />

in modern manufacturing plants<br />

while offering fast operation. As<br />

managing director of Quin Mike<br />

Webb says, the end of the line in<br />

most plants is often forgotten and<br />

space is at a premium. “That is<br />

why our Versapack machine in<br />

particular scores in this area.”<br />

Case packing bags or stand up<br />

pouches on-edge presents more<br />

challenges than rigid cartons<br />

which has led to the company’s<br />

latest development. Indeed, Webb<br />

believes that how you present a<br />

product to the robot is always the<br />

trickiest bit. “Infeed is key to a<br />

successful end of line operation<br />

and we have modified our existing<br />

system to handle stand up<br />

pouches, doypacks, stabilo and<br />

pillow packs,” he says.<br />

Customers have been asking for<br />

a way to handle bags in the last 18<br />

months which has resulted in the<br />

new vertical on-edge infeed system<br />

for the Versapack top loading case<br />

erector/packer. The main benefit<br />

of the new system is the small<br />

footprint and also the minimal<br />

changeparts it requires.<br />

This new infeed is now in<br />

operation on a system installed at a<br />

food manufacturer that uses stabilo<br />

packs and pouches for its products.<br />

52 MACHINERY UPDATE JULY/AUGUST <strong>2015</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

Feature: Automation, robotics and vision<br />

Multipix Imaging<br />

has worked with<br />

vision integrator<br />

Machine Vision<br />

Technology<br />

(MVT) on a project to improve<br />

the inspection capabilities of<br />

a range of counting systems<br />

for tablets and capsules<br />

manufactured by Pharma<br />

Packaging Systems (PPS).<br />

As well as working on<br />

modifying the existing range<br />

of electronic tablet equipment,<br />

the latest MVT/PPS evolution<br />

is designed as a machine<br />

vision inspection system and<br />

has a flat belt tablet feeder<br />

between the last vibrating tray<br />

and the output of the machine.<br />

This means the tablets are<br />

lying flat and are evenly<br />

separated and this system is<br />

designed to reject individual<br />

tablets as they leave the belt<br />

based on the good/bad status<br />

of the tablet.<br />

This system will inspect<br />

the tablets for width, length,<br />

area and colour in addition to<br />

thickness and will ensure only<br />

good product is discharged<br />

for further processing.<br />

This system can inspect up<br />

to 10,000 tablets per minute<br />

but is scalable to suit any<br />

application.<br />

Initially, MVT was<br />

approached by PPS after<br />

the company identified<br />

an opportunity to offer its<br />

customers the benefits of<br />

machine vision by creating<br />

an inspection solution for its<br />

existing range of counting and<br />

packaging machines.<br />

The purpose of the<br />

inspection is to check for<br />

broken, partially formed or<br />

cross contamination (rogue<br />

tablets from another batch).<br />

In the pharmaceutical<br />

industry, cross contamination,<br />

if left undetected before it<br />

leaves the manufacturer, can<br />

cause the whole factory to be<br />

shut down for a period of time<br />

in addition to crippling fines.<br />

Key aspects of the PPS<br />

online inspection system are:<br />

• Verify it is the correct<br />

tablet so avoiding<br />

cross-contamination<br />

The tablet counting machine from Pharma Packaging Systems with integrated vision system and controls<br />

Inspecting is<br />

an easy task<br />

Machinery Update talked to Multipix Imaging about a<br />

pharma installation that improved tablet inspection<br />

• Measure length, width,<br />

area, completeness<br />

• Verify colour<br />

• Ensure quality<br />

• Avoid product returns<br />

and the possibility of<br />

substantial fines/losses<br />

• Achieve 80 images per<br />

second across 24 lanes of<br />

continuous tablet flow.<br />

In general terms, the bulk<br />

product (tablets or capsules)<br />

feed from a hopper onto<br />

vibrating trays that feed and<br />

separate the product and<br />

guide them along the stainless<br />

This specially developed<br />

machine vision system provides<br />

competitive advantages for the user<br />

steel trays. As the tablets<br />

leave the end of the feed trays<br />

they pass through high speed<br />

infra-red optical sensors that<br />

count the products in free fall.<br />

These products are counted<br />

with high accuracy, at high<br />

speed, into bottles that are<br />

indexed on a conveyor by a<br />

scroll drive system.<br />

Cleverly, cameras have<br />

been placed above the final<br />

feed tray to inspect the<br />

tablets just before they are<br />

counted and bottled. As the<br />

tablets are vibrating they are

often touching and moving<br />

irregularly and therefore the<br />

trays can present the tablets<br />

to the camera in any possible<br />

orientation.<br />

Another challenge to<br />

overcome is the bright<br />

and reflective finish of the<br />

stainless steel tablet feed trays<br />

which cause the tablets to<br />

reflect in the channels of the<br />

tray. Therefore the challenge<br />

for the vision system when<br />

measuring the tablet length,<br />

width, area and colour is to<br />

differentiate between actual<br />

product and its reflection.<br />

rates to maximise the<br />

throughput into each bottle<br />

as the bottles index past.<br />

This continuous tracking of<br />

numerous tablets, with their<br />

associated inspection results,<br />

is key to the system’s success.<br />

In operation, the vision<br />

system has to find every tablet<br />

in each image, predict where<br />

it will be in the next image and<br />

match its new position and<br />

orientation in the new image.<br />

T 01730 233332<br />

W www.multipix.com<br />

CAMERA POSITION<br />

Each camera positioned above<br />

the tray images six lanes of<br />

tablets. Each tablet is typically<br />

inspected ten or more times<br />

as it passes from top to bottom<br />

through the camera’s Field<br />

Of View. The main problem<br />

to overcome was the product<br />

appearing to be either good or<br />

bad at any one instant in time<br />

depending on which face it<br />

was presenting to the camera<br />

as it feeds. To overcome this<br />

issue, MVT spent over a<br />

year developing some very<br />

sophisticated tablet tracking<br />

software that tracks each<br />

individual tablet.<br />

As the tablets leave the tray<br />

and get counted into a bottle,<br />

the vision system outputs<br />

the tablet inspection result.<br />

Once the inspection returns<br />

a ‘good’ result for a tablet it<br />

is ‘locked-in’ as good, even if<br />

it then bounces onto an edge<br />

and so appears to be ‘bad’<br />

in subsequent inspections.<br />

The tablet must be deemed<br />

‘good’ in at least one image,<br />

otherwise it is ‘bad’, and when<br />

a bad tablet is detected the<br />

bottle will be rejected.<br />

The vibratory feeders start<br />

and stop several times a<br />

minute and feed at varying<br />

How starting small<br />

could unlock the<br />

path to automation<br />

As someone with<br />

over 30 years of<br />

experience in<br />

robotics, it’s a<br />

source of great<br />

personal frustration for me to see<br />

the UK languishing in the lower<br />

regions of the list of developed<br />

countries using robotic<br />

automation,” says Mike Wilson,<br />

general industry sales and<br />

marketing manager at ABB<br />

Robotics UK and Ireland.<br />

“With only 28 robots per 10,000<br />

non-automotive employees, the UK<br />

trails in 21st place in the world,”<br />

he continues. Based on his own<br />

experience, Wilson says he can<br />

think of hundreds of potential<br />

applications that could benefit<br />

from using robots, particularly<br />

in the SME sector.<br />

Yet, says Wilson, it doesn’t<br />

have to be this way. He believes<br />

that when it comes to robot-based<br />

automation, starting small and<br />

simple can bring tangible benefits<br />

while allowing production teams<br />

and management to get used to<br />

this new technology.<br />

There is now a growing raft of<br />

packaged robotic systems available<br />

that offer great opportunities for<br />

smaller companies in particular<br />

to take their first steps into the<br />

world of robotic automation, he<br />

says. Pitched at a readily affordable<br />

price and offering simple set up<br />

and programming, these systems<br />

offer an attractive opportunity for<br />

anyone keen on introducing robotic<br />

automation into their operation.<br />

“Our own robots are increasingly<br />

featuring in small-scale cellular<br />

systems that give users a simple yet<br />

effective way of automating a wide<br />

variety of processes, from picking<br />

and packing through to machine<br />

tool loading and unloading,” he<br />

tells Machinery Update.<br />

ABB’s system integrator CKF<br />

Systems, for example, has<br />

developed a low cost robotic<br />

packing system enabling users in<br />

the food and beverage industry to<br />

enjoy improved throughput and<br />

consistency and reduced wastage,<br />

the bags after they are palletised<br />

to produce a flat, consistent<br />

presentation and to ensure a neat<br />

and stable stack. Pacepacker<br />

also painted the Blu-Robot white<br />

for aesthetic purposes – so that the<br />

production facility would always<br />

look clean.<br />

It took two days to install and<br />

commission, and was ready for<br />

duty by Christmas Eve last year.<br />

It’s early days, but so far Microferm<br />

is delighted with the difference<br />

the Blu-Robot has made to its<br />

operation.<br />

A re-conditioned robot is proving a productivity<br />

hit as production increases of 25% are achieved<br />

Investing in a Blu-Robot from<br />

Pacepacker Services has<br />

enabled Microferm, a UK<br />

producer of marine source<br />

minerals, to increase the<br />

efficiency of its packing and<br />

palletising operation by 25%.<br />

With business expanding the<br />

company was keen to make its<br />

operation more efficient and,<br />

after speaking to others who had<br />

invested in reconditioned<br />

Blu-Robots from Pacepacker,<br />

managing director John Smith was<br />

convinced it was the way to go.<br />

“On the face of it, a new robot<br />

didn’t appear to cost much more,<br />

but when we factored in all the<br />

extras, the Blu-Robot came out<br />

very favourably,” he explains.<br />

Microferm also liked the fact that<br />

Pacepacker offered a complete<br />

package that includes end-of-arm<br />

tooling, controls and a 12-month<br />

warranty with service and spares<br />

back-up, as well as guarding,<br />

conveying equipment and also<br />

installation.<br />

Given the dusty nature of the<br />

product and the long journey to<br />

its final destination, gentle<br />

handling and precise placement<br />

were two very important factors<br />

in the project.<br />

“All of the minerals produced in<br />

this factory are exported, mainly<br />

to the USA and Asia, so we wanted<br />

a solution that would guarantee a<br />

secure stack and would handle the<br />

sacks gently to avoid any tearing<br />

or damage,” explains Smith.<br />

The Blu-Robot supplied to<br />

Microferm features a vacuum<br />

plunger that comes down to flatten<br />

Uniform stacks<br />

have allowed a<br />

20% increase<br />

in 25kg sacks<br />

per pallet<br />

MORE SCOPE IN SYSTEM<br />

“We’ve increased our production<br />

by 25% and, as the robot isn’t<br />

anywhere near flat out, there’s<br />

plenty of scope to ramp up<br />

production further when<br />

we need to,” says Smith.<br />

“The Blu-Robot is performing as<br />

per our expectations and we’re<br />

impressed with its reliability and<br />

with the overall service we’ve<br />

received from Pacepacker.”<br />

Microferm is now looking at<br />

moving over to pinch bottom<br />

sacks as a means of improving bag<br />

presentation and seal integrity.<br />

The company has subsequently<br />

purchased two Pacepacker pinch<br />

bottom heat sealers, which work<br />

by folding and sealing stepped<br />

end paper sacks via hot air jets<br />

that reactivate pre-applied hot<br />

melt adhesive.<br />

The sack is fed into the feeder<br />

that then automatically creases the<br />

top, heats it and folds it over and<br />

finally presses it to a tight seal.<br />

“For many tasks, full vision systems<br />

can be seen as overkill, with too many<br />

functions, too complex and overly<br />

expensive,” says Richard Neill, product<br />

marketing manager at Balluff.<br />

Balluff’s BVS-E Universal vision sensors<br />

with integral processing electronics,<br />

lighting and two digital outputs are<br />

therefore designed to overcome this<br />

barrier. It is described as a genuine allrounder<br />

because it combines the functions<br />

of the proven BVS-E Advanced with BVS-E<br />

Ident vision sensors in a single device.<br />

“Thanks to its particularly high<br />

performance contour-based image<br />

processing tools, all parts can be localised<br />

in any position, inspected and counted,”<br />

explains Neill. “In doing so, it is possible to<br />

transfer the arrangement and position of<br />

the parts via the RS232 interface.<br />

“The sensor also offers particularly fast<br />

and secure reading of 1D barcodes and<br />

2D data matrix codes,” he continues.<br />

“Up to 40 codes can be localised, read<br />

and verified per second which is what<br />

makes it unique.”<br />

This Universal sensor offers many<br />

benefits to the user by consolidating a<br />

variety of functions into one compact<br />

model which means it can be utilised for<br />

many different applications to reduce<br />

time in sensor selection and warehouse<br />

stock. With a full range of accessories<br />

available including mounting solutions<br />

and additional lighting modules, the<br />

BVS-E is designed to offer a standalone<br />

and easy to integrate solution to a wide<br />

range of vision inspection applications.<br />

Also, BVS ConVIS software is a free of<br />

charge windows based set-up program to<br />

create inspections, configure outputs and<br />

commission the system.<br />

For many tasks a<br />

full vision system can<br />

be seen as overkill<br />

as it is too complex<br />

The Cama BreakThrough generation of equipment can answer specific market needs easily<br />

Robotic vision<br />

brings savings<br />

Cama Group says end of line automation can<br />

be an option for medium speed production lines<br />

Cama Group develops systems to<br />

cope with high speed production<br />

or medium capacity lines that<br />

include vision driven robots to<br />

meet specific market needs.<br />

Renato Dell-Oro of Cama believes a<br />

flexible packaging line is essential as,<br />

for instance, more and more retailers<br />

demand packs that include a variety<br />

of products and flavours to be packed<br />

in shelf ready packaging.<br />

The IG 270 is the modular robotic<br />

loading unit that Cama developed to<br />

load different pack flavours. In this case,<br />

vision driven robots are used in line for<br />

spouted pouches containing different<br />

products destined for the same case.<br />

In operation, pouches arrive on a flat<br />

conveyor where the robots, thanks to<br />

artificial vision, pick up the pouches<br />

and place these well-ordered products<br />

in a pocket conveyor taking them to the<br />

monobloc top loading unit.<br />

What stands out from this Cama<br />

solution is the reduced footprint achieved<br />

thanks to patented anti-collision<br />

software, says Dell-Oro. The Cama Delta<br />

robots are sharing common working<br />

space and so one can work close to the<br />

other generating a space reduction of up<br />

to 40% over standard models.<br />

Cama equipment also accommodates<br />

the needs of manufacturers handling<br />

smaller production volumes. Its monobloc<br />

loading unit comprising a box forming<br />

machine, Delta robot for pick and place<br />

and a robotic closing unit can handle up<br />

to 500 incoming products per minute with<br />

an output of 30 boxes a minute. And this<br />

can all be achieved in a 2 x 3 metre space.<br />

Helping to develop<br />

next generation kit<br />

AUK manufacturer of<br />

vertical form, fill and<br />

seal (VFFS) equipment<br />

has boosted machine<br />

speeds by 30%, ramped<br />

up efficiencies and is about to<br />

launch a new continuous-motion<br />

range thanks largely to drives and<br />

controls from Omron.<br />

“The majority of our sales are<br />

into the food industry – packing<br />

everything from carrots and<br />

frozen veg to sweets, spices or<br />

crisps,” says managing director<br />

of Line Equipment John Blashkiw.<br />

“Customers will often ask about<br />

speeds before they ask about the<br />

cost and over the past three years<br />

or so, with our all-servo machines,<br />

throughput has risen dramatically<br />

from 70 bags per minute up to<br />

100 bags per minute.”<br />

That leap in speed came largely<br />

thanks to the upgrade some 18<br />

months ago from Omron’s CJ1 PLC<br />

to the faster, next-generation CP2,<br />

he adds.<br />

Line efficiencies have also<br />

benefited. “We’ve had no problems<br />

since we’ve been using Omron<br />

components,” says Blashkiw.<br />

“When we install a system, it will<br />

generally have to hit at least 98%<br />

efficiency as that’s pretty much the<br />

industry standard now.”<br />

Energy savings are another of the<br />

incentives for a move to the latest<br />

servo drives, says Line Equipment.<br />

“If you look at the energy<br />

requirements of a pneumatic<br />

machine, the jaw closing<br />

mechanism on a VFFS machine,<br />

which is just one part of the<br />

cycle, needs 15 cubic feet per<br />

minute (cfm) of compressed air,”<br />

Omron’s CP2 PLC has boosted speeds<br />

Controlling<br />

efficiencies<br />

Omron’s new<br />

servo drives on<br />

the sealing jaws<br />

offer excellent<br />

energy savings<br />

he says. “That’s a compressor<br />

continuously working away in the<br />

background.”<br />

Reliability is another key factor.<br />

“Using the Omron’s control system,<br />

even on the coldest winter’s<br />

morning, you’ve got an almost<br />

100% guarantee that the equipment<br />

will start up,” says Blashkiw.<br />

As well as the PLC, G5 servo drive<br />

and SmartStep servo drives, Line<br />

Equipment integrates Omron’s<br />

NS8 human machine interface<br />

(HMI). “As well as the speed, it<br />

reports the diagnostics and seven<br />

day production tables, so you<br />

can see the number of filled and<br />

empty packs,” explains Blashkiw.<br />

“Integrating heating controls into<br />

the HMI tidies up the design so that<br />

we don’t have fit in secondary sets<br />

of controls.”<br />

The partnership with Omron<br />

also allows customers to feel in<br />

control of their own equipment,<br />

says Line Equipment.<br />

“The fact that we are using an<br />

off-the-shelf PLC and HMI is a<br />

selling tool for us,” says Blashkiw.<br />

“The customer does not have<br />

to come back through us and<br />

it’s a quick fix in the event of a<br />

breakdown, for example.”<br />

As he explains, Omron’s drives<br />

and controls allow Line Equipment<br />

to offer systems which are low cost<br />

as well as reliable.<br />

Now Omron is supporting Line<br />

Equipment in the development<br />

of its next generation of VFFS<br />

machines which will be<br />

continuous-motion units. “With<br />

the support of our supplier, we<br />

hope to have a machine ready<br />

to show at the PPMA Show in<br />

September this year,” he says.<br />

IDS has developed<br />

a vision option to<br />

offer flexibility<br />

USB 3.0 connectivity,<br />

now standard on PCs,<br />

is proving to be highly<br />

popular for industrial<br />

cameras. This is largely<br />

because the camera can be plugged<br />

directly into the computer without<br />

needing a frame grabber, and data<br />

can be transmitted at high rates<br />

over significant distances. However,<br />

users generally face a choice – they<br />

either buy a camera that comes<br />

with its own proprietary software<br />

and drivers for interfacing, or one<br />

that uses the AIA industry standard<br />

‘USB3 Vision’ interface. Today, USB<br />

camera specialists IDS Imaging<br />

Development Systems is providing<br />

the best of both worlds by being the<br />

first manufacturer to offer identical<br />

camera models with a choice of<br />

USB3 Vision or proprietary driver<br />

package.<br />

“Switching from one version<br />

to another at a later date is easily<br />

possible by updating the firmware,<br />

giving the ultimate in flexibility,”<br />

The test chart at the top is obtained<br />

using the sensor normally while the<br />

clean/crisper image is obtained by the<br />

sensor having a longer exposure time<br />

Switching is<br />

easier to do<br />

Identical camera<br />

models with a<br />

choice of USB3<br />

vision or<br />

proprietary<br />

driver package<br />

are now offered<br />

by IDS<br />

explains Steve Hearn of IDS.<br />

Some users want the flexibility<br />

of being able to exchange USB 3<br />

cameras as required, regardless of<br />

the manufacturer, without the need<br />

for any changes to the software.<br />

In these cases, cameras operating to<br />

the AIA USB 3 Vision manufacturerindependent<br />

standard protocol<br />

are the preferred choice. However,<br />

many other users want to utilise<br />

the widest range of functionality<br />

available from the camera.<br />

CMOS image sensors provide a<br />

host of capabilities, but not all of<br />

these functions are supported in<br />

the USB3 Vision standard, so the<br />

proprietary software approach is<br />

the preferred way to make fuller<br />

use of the potential of this latest<br />

generation of sensors.<br />

The dual approach from IDS<br />

means that this choice is not<br />

set in stone. If a user opts for a<br />

USB3 Vision camera initially and<br />

the supported features are not<br />

sufficient, it is possible to switch to<br />

the IDS Software Suite at a later date<br />

without even having to send the<br />

camera away to perform the update.<br />

Since many manufacturers use<br />

similar sensors, the features made<br />

available through the proprietary<br />

software determine the overall<br />

functionality of a given camera.<br />

Functionality from IDS USB3<br />

cameras includes high dynamic<br />

range imaging, to allow viewing of<br />

extreme light and dark regions in<br />

the same scene and imaging from<br />

multiple areas of interest which<br />

speeds up image acquisition by<br />

looking only at the important part<br />

of the image.<br />

Also, line scan imaging capability<br />

is offered which offers a low cost<br />

alternative for web inspection<br />

applications as is scalar mode<br />

which allows seamless changing of<br />

resolution. Multi-integration mode –<br />

multiple sensor exposure within an<br />

image allowing capture of even fast<br />

moving objects – can be provided<br />

as well as extended exposure times<br />

which are normally only found in<br />

CCD cameras and are ideal for low<br />

light conditions.<br />

USB 3 cameras are available in<br />

single-board camera versions or<br />

light but robust housed versions.<br />

The Automated Technology Group robotic system includes an ABB robot depalletising totes<br />

Robotic vision<br />

selects sweets<br />

A confectionery giant produces perfectly<br />

balanced selection boxes thanks to new system<br />

The Automated Technology<br />

Group (ATG) has devised a<br />

robotic solution to replace<br />

manual filling of selection boxes<br />

to maximise efficiency at a<br />

major confectioner’s factory. Importantly,<br />

installation took place without<br />

disrupting the production process.<br />

This solution combined computerised<br />

control systems, robotic depalletising<br />

and colour camera systems with a<br />

traditional pallet handling conveyor<br />

system. In operation, this combination<br />

identifies different confectionery<br />

types and then transports them at<br />

high speed to automated dispensing<br />

systems.<br />

Using a series of cameras mounted<br />

above the totes in conjunction with the<br />

vision system’s colour extraction tool,<br />

the robots designed by ATG can detect<br />

which product type is contained within<br />

each tote from the wrapper colour. The<br />

robotic system is also programmed to<br />

sequence the totes to create a balanced<br />

mix of products for the adjacent filling<br />

lines, while system checks are carried<br />

out via additional cameras.<br />

“Thanks to our tailored approach and<br />

attention to every detail of the packaging<br />

process, the control system successfully<br />

ensures that numerous different<br />

chocolate types are correctly identified,<br />

loaded onto conveyors and routed to<br />

the appropriate dispensing equipment,”<br />

says Nigel Brookes, group sales director<br />

at ATG. “In addition, the handling<br />

systems are continuously monitored to<br />

provide the highest performance levels<br />

and reliability, with the results visible<br />

every time a tin or box of favourite sweet<br />

treats is opened.”<br />

B&R Automation is expanding its<br />

already extensive mapp technology<br />

portfolio to include components for all<br />

of the most commonly used robot<br />

kinematic systems. Not only does this<br />

allow users to commission robots much<br />

more quickly, it also makes maintenance<br />

and diagnostics substantially easier.<br />

The new robotic functions in mapp<br />

include both serial and parallel robot<br />

kinematics, such as Scara and Delta<br />

robots. The user interface is based on<br />

familiar IEC 61131 programming methods<br />

while the robotic functions integrate<br />

seamlessly into the overall system.<br />

This means there is no need for a<br />

dedicated robotics controller.<br />

The robot kinematics themselves are<br />

configured graphically in a convenient<br />

web interface. Programming in the<br />

conventional sense is not necessary.<br />

The mapp components can even handle<br />

manual operations such as jogging and<br />

point-to-point movement of the tool<br />

centre point.<br />

Technicians can run diagnostics on the<br />

robot via the easy-to-use web interface.<br />

mapp technology consists of<br />

individually encapsulated blocks<br />

that streamline development of new<br />

software. The components provide<br />

basic functionality and are configured<br />

graphically. Each mapp component<br />

retrieves the data it needs from other<br />

components using a client-server model.<br />

Packing lines use<br />

Fanuc robots only<br />

A-ware Food Group’s<br />

Netherlands facility in<br />

Zeewolde works around<br />

the clock packing and<br />

palletising cheese and<br />

has now installed a second lane<br />

fitted with Fanuc robots to boost<br />

output even further.<br />

Cheese is A-ware’s business and<br />

the Group produces and distributes<br />

over 240 million consumer<br />

packs annually and last year, it<br />

collaborated with New Zealand<br />

dairy co-operative Fontera in<br />

opening a warehouse and logistics<br />

plant in Zeewolde. From here, Dutch<br />

and foreign cheeses are matured<br />

on site in climate-controlled<br />

conditions, before the packaging<br />

specialist cuts, grates, cubes, packs,<br />

labels and distributes the cheese.<br />

The extensive warehouse<br />

capacity enables the company<br />

to guarantee 48-hour delivery to<br />

customers anywhere in Europe.<br />

To fulfil these orders, speed and<br />

efficiency is everything and with<br />

over 42 packing lines, A-ware is<br />

no stranger to automation. When<br />

kitting out its new warehousing<br />

and logistics cheese factory,<br />

A-ware and the company’s<br />

machine supplier turned to Fanuc.<br />

“When dealing with high speeds<br />

and vision and line tracking,<br />

Fanuc is our choice,” says Bertus<br />

Visch, project manager at system<br />

integrator Robertpack, who<br />

Robots are<br />

fast option<br />

The space saving<br />

Fanuc robotic<br />

palletiser can<br />

handle up to<br />

70kg and palletise<br />

up to 720 trays<br />

of cheese an hour<br />

Here, packing speeds of up to 120 pieces per minute is achieved<br />

oversaw the implementation.<br />

Five Fanuc robots are positioned<br />

at three stages of A-ware’s new<br />

production line.<br />

Packing wedges of cheese, such<br />

as Gouda, into deep trays are two<br />

food-grade Fanuc M3iA/6S robots.<br />

Reaching packing speeds of 120<br />

pieces of cheese per minute helps<br />

to maintain product quality by<br />

minimising the time lapse between<br />

the process of cutting the whole<br />

cheese rounds and placing them<br />

into packs for sealing.<br />

Both robots are fully integrated<br />

into the new double line packaging<br />

machines as this enables more<br />

complex movements as well as<br />

safeguarding workers.<br />

For case loading, Robertpack<br />

created a bespoke solution using two<br />

Fanuc M3A/6S robots. To maximise<br />

efficiency and ensure safety, both<br />

robots were once again integrated<br />

into the machine. This case loader<br />

performs multiple tasks including<br />

box loading, under-box erecting,<br />

tray edge closing and lid setting.<br />

At the end of the line sits a<br />

space saving standalone Fanuc<br />

M-710C/70. With a medium<br />

payload, this robotic palletiser is<br />

capable of handling up to 70kg<br />

and can typically palletise up to<br />

720 trays an hour. In demanding<br />

situations, this very compact and<br />

streamlined robot is available<br />

IP67 rated without any additional<br />

covers, and if required can be<br />

supplied with Epoxy paint finish<br />

and food grade grease.<br />

The entire line, including the<br />

interface to the robots, is controlled<br />

by a single upstream PLC.<br />

“Integration of all of the essential<br />

components is fundamental,”<br />

explains Robert van Dien, head of<br />

technical development at A-ware.<br />

“We have five suppliers in a<br />

37-metre line and it is most<br />

crucial that the machines talk<br />

to each other,” he adds.<br />

Europe’s largest ice manufacturer<br />

has installed seven Zodiac<br />

thermal transfer overprinters<br />

from Interactive Coding<br />

Equipment (ICE) to meet growing<br />

demand for its products.<br />

The Ice Co needed to replace<br />

could be responsive and provide<br />

excellent after-care support.<br />

“It’s vital to ensure that the<br />

equipment we use meets the<br />

same high quality standards that<br />

we set ourselves, and which our<br />

customers demand,” he explains.<br />

The first Zodiac purchased<br />

was so impressive that The Ice Co<br />

then installed another six across<br />

four production sites, printing a<br />

verifier package can verify<br />

barcodes in minutes with just<br />

three simple steps.<br />

Firstly, scan the reference<br />

barcode with the Datalogic<br />

reader, secondly, this barcode<br />

code is automatically sent to the<br />

Matrix 300N fixed scanner, and<br />

finally, the Matrix 300N then<br />

reads the barcode on the<br />

product as it passes down<br />

the conveyor, triggered by a<br />

Datalogic S8 sensor.<br />

The Matrix 300N confirms<br />

the product has the correct<br />

barcode label or alternatively,<br />

it will warn ‘wrong barcode’ or<br />

‘no barcode’. These results can<br />

be output as serial strings or to<br />

PLCs to control the line.<br />

Drum motor ensures that<br />

smoked salmon is quality<br />

Aleading company<br />

processing salmon<br />

delicacies is fully<br />

exploiting the capabilities of<br />

the new Interroll synchronous<br />

drum motor in its latest slicing<br />

production line for premium<br />

quality smoked salmon.<br />

This production line<br />

incorporates AB Process<br />

slicing machines that feature<br />

belt conveyors driven by<br />

synchronous drum motors to<br />

provide sequential transport<br />

to ensure the slices stay on the<br />

carrier boards.<br />

The space saving 80mm<br />

diameter motor is a powerful,<br />

energy-efficient generation<br />

of drum motor, enabling<br />

one drive system to suit all<br />

needs. It is easy to install in<br />

belt conveyors for food and<br />

packaging processes as<br />

well as for industrial<br />

applications.<br />

These motors offer<br />

engineers and machinery<br />

manufacturers a powerful,<br />

hygienic eco-friendly drive<br />

solution for belt conveyors,<br />

where the accuracy and<br />

precision control are all<br />

important requirements in<br />

many food processing and<br />

packaging applications.<br />

The synchronous drive<br />

offers excellent start-stop<br />

performance, optimum<br />

torque at all speeds,<br />

maximum acceleration/<br />

braking performance and low<br />

operating drum temperature<br />

of approximately 45deg C,<br />

which is often essential when<br />

handling raw foods.<br />

Regulations<br />

Back to machinery<br />

safety school<br />

Neil Dyson<br />

BUSINESS LINE MANAGER - MACHINERY TÜV SÜD PRODUCT SERVICE<br />

Machinery end-users need to be aware of the legislative framework in which machinery safety sits<br />

to ensure compliance across their manufacturing facilities. Here’s a useful guide<br />

While machinery endusers<br />

think they<br />

may have safety<br />

compliance covered, we<br />

regularly observe common<br />

hazards and issues that<br />

have not been adequately<br />

addressed. The legislative<br />

framework within which<br />

machinery safety sits is much<br />

broader than the Machinery<br />

Directive, which adds to the<br />

complexity of identifying<br />

which standards are relevant,<br />

and then how they should be<br />

applied according to specific<br />

situations.<br />

MACHINERY DIRECTIVE<br />

All machines supplied in<br />

the European Economic<br />

Area must comply with the<br />

Machinery Directive.<br />

The Machinery Directive<br />

defines a machine as:<br />

• An assembly fitted with,<br />

or intended to be fitted with,<br />

a drive system other than<br />

directly applied manual or<br />

animal effort, consisting of<br />

linked parts or components,<br />

at least one of which moves,<br />

and which are joined<br />

together for a specific<br />

application<br />

• Machinery referred to above<br />

that is missing only the<br />

components to connect it on<br />

site or to sources of energy<br />

and motion<br />

• Lifting apparatus whose<br />

only power source is<br />

directly applied manual<br />

effort<br />

• An assembly of machines<br />

and/or partly completed<br />

machinery which, in<br />

order to achieve the same<br />

end, are arranged and<br />

controlled to function as<br />

an integral whole<br />

• Interchangeable equipment<br />

which is assembled with<br />

machinery or a tractor in<br />

order to change its function.<br />

PUWER<br />

The Provision and Use of<br />

Work Equipment Regulations<br />

1998 (PUWER) requires users<br />

of work equipment to carry<br />

out risk assessment and<br />

provide work equipment that<br />

is suitable for its intended<br />

task and can be used without<br />

putting persons at risk.<br />

It requires that inspections<br />

are carried out:<br />

• After installation and before<br />

being put into service<br />

for the first time; or after<br />

assembly at a new site or<br />

in a new location to ensure<br />

that it has been installed<br />

correctly and is safe to<br />

operate<br />

• After work equipment<br />

has been exposed to<br />

any conditions causing<br />

deterioration, which is<br />

liable to cause a dangerous<br />

situation<br />

• At suitable intervals; and<br />

• Each time that exceptional<br />

circumstances have<br />

occurred that are liable<br />

to jeopardise the safety of<br />

work equipment.<br />

The results of these<br />

inspections have to be<br />

documented and kept.<br />

PRESSURE EQUIPMENT<br />

DIRECTIVE<br />

The Pressure Equipment<br />

Directive (PED) 97/23/EC is<br />

mandatory for equipment<br />

operating at a pressure<br />

greater than 0.5 bar and is<br />

considered to be one of the<br />

most complex and difficult to<br />

understand directives. Indeed,<br />

many organisations we work<br />

with, particularly small and<br />

medium-sized companies<br />

which have limited resource<br />

to allocate specifically to<br />

the task of conformance,<br />

report many difficulties in its<br />

application.<br />

The PED is wide ranging<br />

as it impacts upon design,<br />

production, final inspection/<br />

test, marking and labelling<br />

and instructions for use/<br />

maintenance. Therefore, in<br />

most affected companies<br />

no single person will be<br />

able to resolve all issues.<br />

The Directive provides<br />

many options and routes to<br />

conformity, which can be<br />

time consuming for those not<br />

fully conversant with this<br />

process, with an inappropriate<br />

choice potentially leading<br />

to significant third party<br />

inspection costs.<br />

THE LOW VOLTAGE<br />

DIRECTIVE<br />

Equipment operating at<br />

voltage between 50v & 1000v<br />

AC and 75v &1500v DC must<br />

comply with the Low Voltage<br />

Directive (LVD).<br />

The requirements under the<br />

LVD are:<br />

• That the product is<br />

electrically safe<br />

• The product has been<br />

constructed in accordance<br />

with accepted good<br />

engineering practice<br />

• The product has been<br />

designed and constructed<br />

in accordance with the<br />

Principal Elements of the<br />

Safety Objectives of the LVD<br />

• Electrical equipment is<br />

designed and constructed<br />

to ensure that it is safe when<br />

connected to the electricity<br />

supply, by providing a level<br />

of protection against electric<br />

shock.<br />

ATEX DIRECTIVE<br />

The ‘ATEX’ Directive 94/9/EC<br />

provides the technical<br />

requirements for equipment<br />

intended for use in potentially<br />

explosive atmospheres.<br />

The Directive therefore covers<br />

a surprisingly large range of<br />

manufacturing sites including<br />

fixed offshore platforms,<br />

petrochemical plants, mines<br />

and even flour mills.<br />

THE EMC DIRECTIVE<br />

Most electrical and electronic<br />

products made or sold in<br />

Europe must be constructed<br />

so that they do not cause<br />

excessive electromagnetic<br />

interference, and are not duly<br />

affected by electromagnetic<br />

interference. Such products<br />

are also required to carry CE<br />

marking.<br />

While machinery safety<br />

is a complex process, the<br />

guidance provided in both<br />

the Machinery Directive and<br />

associated standards mean<br />

that there is no excuse for<br />

getting this wrong. If in<br />

doubt, seek expert advice<br />

as the safety of your<br />

employees and the reputation<br />

of your business may depend<br />

upon it.<br />
