PPMA matters<br />

PPMA Show is<br />

barometer<br />

for industry<br />

Grant Jamieson<br />

CHAIRMAN PPMA GROUP OF ASSOCIATIONS<br />

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

The success of our PPMA Show in October and our annual<br />

awards presented on the first evening were, in part, down to<br />

the evident manufacturing recovery. Our customers are the<br />

readers of this magazine and we know you are all under pressure to<br />

work smarter to meet the growing demand of your own customers.<br />

Therefore, a visit to see the latest developments from the 1000 or so<br />

companies represented at our exhibition was time very well spent.<br />

As well as celebrating the success of the show, the competence<br />

and industry knowledge of the two headline speakers was also<br />

evident. Lord Digby Jones was once CBI director general while Justin<br />

King CBE was formerly Sainsbury’s CEO – in their presentations,<br />

both got to the core of the issues we face as an industry. Jones was<br />

strident about the need to support British manufacturing, innovation<br />

and endeavour. King was equally clear about how retailers need<br />

clever thinking in the packaging and processing arena.<br />

People are a key element<br />

to running a successful company<br />

in the manufacturing sector<br />

Of course, investment in machinery and hardware is just one part<br />

of the equation to running a successful manufacturing business.<br />

People are another key element and the aging profile of the<br />

engineering sector is a concern for all. Equally, the lack of women<br />

in engineering was another issue raised during the PPMA Show.<br />

It can’t be right that 50% of the workforce remain untapped.<br />

Attracting new entrants, both men and women to our industry<br />

of processing and packaging, is a challenge. That is why we,<br />

as an association have invested in our BEST initiative which<br />

is designed to engage a wider range of potential candidates to<br />

join our industry. PPMA BEST (Business, Education, Skills and<br />

Training) is a charitable trust aimed at recruiting more young<br />

engineering talent into the sector.<br />

In this issue of Machinery Update, you’ll see details of<br />

companies that are tackling skills shortages head on by setting<br />

up their own schemes. Silverson, for instance, has just opened<br />

an all-new training facility where they have taken on six<br />

apprentices this year. They only wanted to take on four but a<br />

local advertising campaign delivered such a high calibre of<br />

applicants that they increased the number.<br />

This proves that the right people are out there, it’s just a<br />

question of engaging and attracting them. If every company took<br />

this view, along with the support of the PPMA Group, just think<br />

what could be achieved for the future?<br />

Most successful show in<br />

recent history is praised<br />

Over 7,500 people visited<br />

the 1000 packaging and<br />

processing machinery<br />

manufacturers represented<br />

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

the NEC this autumn which<br />

created an excellent business<br />

environment during the three<br />

day exhibition.<br />

“The best show ever,” was<br />

a quote heard from exhibitor<br />

after exhibitor, many of which<br />

included working machinery<br />

on their stands in much greater<br />

numbers than last year.<br />

As Richard Little, PPMA show<br />

director says, “The exhibition<br />

benefits from an amazing<br />

community atmosphere, and<br />

there was a real buzz about the<br />

show floor this year.<br />

“We have been inundated<br />

with compliments, and would<br />

like to thank everyone that<br />

took the time to exhibit or visit<br />

the show,” he continues. “We<br />

have more than 200 exhibiting<br />

companies already confirmed<br />

for Total 2016.”<br />

Visitors were able to see the very latest technology available to the market<br />

Returning as headline<br />

sponsors of the show,<br />

Lloyds Bank Commercial<br />

Banking offered valuable<br />

expertise from their<br />

manufacturing specialists<br />

including guidance on dayto-day<br />

banking requirements<br />

and funding for expansion,<br />

as well as supporting<br />

businesses in their plans<br />

to invest in new plant and<br />

machinery. “The PPMA Show<br />

is a major landmark in the<br />

manufacturing calendar and<br />

this year’s event was bigger<br />

and better than ever,” said<br />

David Atkinson, head of<br />

manufacturing, SME, at Lloyds<br />

Bank Commercial Banking.<br />

for Spar cupcakes<br />

A Series 1 micro-fill depositor<br />

from Riggs Autopack was<br />

recently used to produce 35,000<br />

cupcakes for the world’s largest<br />

cupcake mosaic. The Guinness<br />

World Record winning mosaic<br />

was created by the Spar Group<br />

and its extended family in<br />

Durban, South Africa to wish the<br />

Springboks well in the Rugby<br />

World Cup. All the cupcakes that<br />

were used in the mosaic were<br />

donated to various charities<br />

and all the money raised went<br />

to Cupcakes 4 Kids with Cancer.<br />

Belinda Barlow from the Spar<br />

Group said the company was very<br />

impressed with the performance<br />

of the machine and would<br />

recommend them for use in their<br />

retail stores.<br />

49 million euros. It has been<br />

agreed that the purchase price<br />

will not be disclosed and the<br />

acquisition is subject to the<br />

approval of anti-trust authorities.<br />

Mixer specialist tackles<br />

staffing issues head on<br />

Students were rigorously assessed<br />

Work placements<br />

in Germany for<br />

two UK students<br />

Two young UK engineering<br />

students have been selected by<br />

Murrelektronik for a work placement<br />

in Oppenweiler, Germany.<br />

The Wigan University Technical<br />

College (UTC) students are now<br />

part of the Murrelektronik<br />

manufacturing team and are<br />

gaining insight into how the<br />

company’s power distribution<br />

components and systems for<br />

industrial automation are produced<br />

at the site.<br />

The Wigan UTC students have<br />

taken part in a rigorous selection<br />

process for this opportunity.<br />

Fiona Bradshaw and Elliot<br />

Morris, who are both studying<br />

A-levels and technical diplomas<br />

in engineering, were given the<br />

opportunity to gain valuable<br />

practical skills to complement<br />

their academic achievements.<br />

This is the second year that<br />

Murrelektronik UK has sponsored<br />

a scholarship for UTC students.<br />

Former Cabinet Minister<br />

Michael Portillo helped<br />

celebrate the official<br />

opening of mixer specialist<br />

Silverson’s new purpose-built<br />

training school and testing<br />

facility in October.<br />

The new training school is<br />

home to six youngsters that<br />

have just started a traditional<br />

five year indentured<br />

engineering apprenticeship.<br />

For Silverson, a company with<br />

about a hundred staff in total,<br />

it represents a considerable<br />

investment but one it felt was<br />

required to meet the recruitment<br />

challenge it was facing.<br />

The Chesham-based<br />

company designs and<br />

manufactures high shear<br />

mixers used throughout<br />

the food, pharmaceutical,<br />

cosmetics, chemicals and<br />

luboils industries. In the last<br />

five years, sales have grown<br />

by 56%, with up to 90% of<br />

this output being exported,<br />

and this dramatic rise in<br />

sales has required a major<br />

investment in its production<br />

facility, in terms of space,<br />

capital equipment and – most<br />

importantly – people to meet<br />

this challenge.<br />

Michael Portillo was impressed with the training for apprentices at Silverson<br />

To meet its recruitment<br />

needs, the company decided<br />

to set up its own training<br />

school in a brand new,<br />

purpose-built training facility,<br />

to recruit and train at least<br />

four apprentices each year.<br />

It engaged a full time<br />

instructor and achieved<br />

accreditation from EAL as<br />

well as setting up a dedicated<br />

classroom for the apprentices,<br />

allowing a lecturer from the<br />

local technical college to<br />

come to the site for the day<br />

release and make use of a fully<br />

equipped resource centre.<br />

Its first four apprentices<br />

started in September 2014,<br />

and had to begin their<br />

training in temporary<br />

quarters as the new building<br />

was not completed at the<br />

time. They have now finished<br />

their first year and are<br />

continuing their progress<br />

in the main shop floor and<br />

beginning their studies<br />

towards NVQ Level 3.<br />

10 MACHINERY UPDATE NOVEMBER/DECEMBER <strong>2015</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

News<br />

Report shows weakness<br />

in maintenance practice<br />

The report found that more strategic maintenance is the exception rather than the rule<br />

Anew report has<br />

highlighted critical<br />

maintenance failings<br />

that risk the long term health<br />

and productivity of British<br />

manufacturing.<br />

Called ‘What You Don’t<br />

Repair You Destroy’, the<br />

report catalogues a series<br />

of problems affecting<br />

manufacturing maintenance<br />

practices that threaten<br />

productivity, efficiency and<br />

competiveness.<br />

ENGINEERS SURVEYED<br />

Published in conjunction<br />

with the Institute of<br />

Engineering & Technology<br />

(IET), the report surveyed 300<br />

engineers in a variety of roles<br />

from manufacturing director<br />

through to maintenance<br />

engineer. Key findings<br />

include 71% of engineers<br />

describing their maintenance<br />

practices as reactive or<br />

planned; 50% stating that<br />

maintenance training<br />

budgets have stagnated or<br />

decreased in recent years<br />

and that the majority of<br />

maintenance engineers<br />

receive only five days training<br />

or less every year.<br />

“We have been concerned<br />

for some time that<br />

maintenance practices and<br />

skills have not kept pace<br />

with advances in machine<br />

complexity,” says Alastair<br />

Johnstone, managing director<br />

of Bosch Rexroth UK.<br />

“This report suggests that<br />

UK manufacturing is walking<br />

a tightrope, with dated<br />

maintenance practices and<br />

budgetary constraints<br />

posing a critical risk to the<br />

long-term health of our<br />

manufacturing base.<br />

More strategic maintenance,<br />

such as condition monitoring<br />

and preventative maintenance<br />

techniques, are the exception<br />

rather than the rule,<br />

according to the findings.<br />

“This report is, of course, a<br />

snapshot,” he continues.<br />

OUTSTANDING EXAMPLES<br />

“There are outstanding<br />

examples of maintenance<br />

practices in British<br />

manufacturing and you<br />

only need to look at the car<br />

industry as a prime example<br />

of that. But, it is vitally<br />

important that<br />

the rest of the<br />

industry follow<br />

suit and take a<br />

longer-term view<br />

of maintenance<br />

and its positive<br />

impact in order<br />

to safeguard the<br />

UK’s impressive<br />

productivity<br />

statistics which<br />

are, rightly,<br />

celebrated.”<br />

The report<br />

covers keys areas<br />

of maintenance,<br />

including<br />

resource, planning<br />

and monitoring,<br />

critical machinery,<br />

obsolescence<br />

and training and<br />

includes verbatim quotes<br />

from engineers who took<br />

part in the research, which<br />

detail their concerns about<br />

the role of maintenance<br />

in manufacturing and the<br />

challenges faced in factories<br />

on a daily basis.<br />

Ken Young, technology<br />

director of the Manufacturing<br />

Technology Centre welcomes<br />

the report. “Analysis of<br />

this kind is long overdue,<br />

but its findings will come<br />

as no surprise to many of<br />

those who work in British<br />

manufacturing,” he says.<br />

“This report paints a<br />

picture of maintenance<br />

practices which are reactive<br />

rather than preventative,<br />

with businesses waiting until<br />

equipment fails before it is<br />

repaired.<br />

“The key message is that<br />

we need to have much greater<br />

confidence in ourselves<br />

and implement a long-term<br />

strategic vision based on<br />

preventative maintenance<br />

techniques.”<br />

PPMA Group Industry Awards <strong>2015</strong><br />

Celebrating achievements<br />

of the individual winners<br />

Fifteen awards were presented during the PPMA Group Industry Awards and here, we celebrate<br />

the individuals that achieved success. Next issue, we will focus on all of the companies that took<br />

the top prizes during the gala evening at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham<br />

This year’s PPMA Group<br />

Industry Awards were<br />

presented at a gala<br />

evening on the first night of<br />

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

than 400 people attended<br />

the ceremony at the National<br />

Motorcycle Museum in<br />

Birmingham, hosted by<br />

comedian Bobby Davro. The<br />

event was headline sponsored<br />

by Lloyds Bank and celebrated<br />

excellence and innovation<br />

from all areas of the industry.<br />

The independent judging<br />

panel faced a difficult task in<br />

choosing the winners from<br />

the scores of entries as Alan<br />

Isaacs, judge and independent<br />

consultant attests. “The judges<br />

recognise the status of these<br />

awards and place great<br />

emphasis on ensuring their<br />

judging process is a reflection<br />

of that status,” he says.<br />

“As in many other years, both<br />

the volume and standard of<br />

the entries were impressive.”<br />

Editor of Machinery Update<br />

Gail Hunt was also part of the<br />

judging panel and she felt<br />

Harry Phelps was the winner of the<br />

Apprentice of the Year award<br />

It’s a family affair. David Johnson, chairman of Yorkshire Packaging Systems was presented with the Outstanding<br />

Achievement award and he is pictured (centre) with daughter and son, Rachel and Glyn, who are with the business<br />

had impacted the competition<br />

entries this year. “Many of<br />

the developments entered<br />

this year were inspired by<br />

customer requests for smarter<br />

ways of working to meet<br />

growing demands,” she said.<br />

It doesn’t matter if you’ve<br />

just joined the industry or<br />

you’ve been working in the<br />

sector for years, the awards<br />

recognise talent across the<br />

ages. For instance, winner of<br />

the Apprentice of the Year was<br />

Harry Phelps who works for<br />

Adelphi. Phelps’ dedication to<br />

his work and his studies has<br />

led to his employers assigning<br />

him sole responsibility for the<br />

build of a new filling machine.<br />

So impressed is Adelphi with<br />

him, the company’s first<br />

mechanical fitter apprentice,<br />

that it has since employed a<br />

further two apprentices.<br />

Phelps stood out from<br />

the rest with his glowing<br />

reference from his employers,<br />

The manufacturing recovery<br />

has impacted the awards this year<br />

as customers have to work smarter<br />

to meet higher market demands<br />

highlighting a young<br />

man whose enthusiasm,<br />

professionalism and can-do<br />

attitude has breathed new<br />

energy in to the workshop,<br />

said the judges. This award<br />

was sponsored by The<br />

Automated Technology Group.<br />

There was also an award on<br />

the night for Stewart Jackson<br />

of Bytronic who was the<br />

winner of the PPMA Driver<br />

of the Year.<br />

More apprentices were<br />

involved in the PPMA BEST<br />

(Business, Education,<br />

Skills and Training) award<br />

which was won by Silverson<br />

Machines for demonstrating<br />

considerable long-term<br />

strategic planning in<br />

developing its training<br />

programme. Silverson has<br />

New Machinery<br />

Latest cij coder offers<br />

cost and time savings<br />

The double draw-down belts<br />

Retrofit kits<br />

aid FFS unit<br />

reliability<br />

Rovema is offering double<br />

draw-down belts for form, fill and<br />

seal (FFS) machines to increase<br />

overall production reliability.<br />

To ensure reliable film transport<br />

in FFS machines, the draw-down<br />

unit has to generate enormous<br />

power, especially in large machines<br />

with correspondingly increased<br />

format sizes; the transport of the<br />

film is particularly demanding.<br />

Any strains mainly become<br />

noticeable through increased slip<br />

and wear as well as fluctuations of<br />

the draw-down length.<br />

The double draw-down belts<br />

are designed to counteract these<br />

impacts and thus increase the<br />

production reliability of the<br />

machine in operation.<br />

Rovema’s retrofit kit consists<br />

of two pre-assembled draw-down<br />

units and four standard vacuum<br />

draw-down belts as well as<br />

mounting material. It offers a<br />

reliable film draw-down and<br />

ensures less wear of the drawdown<br />

belts. Furthermore, it<br />

reinforces the suction power of<br />

the draw-down unit and reduces<br />

slip even with thicker films.<br />

The double draw-down belts<br />

are especially suitable for Rovema<br />

FFS type VPK, VPI, VPL, VPS and<br />

BVC machines in sizes 260 (with<br />

large formats) as well as 360 and<br />

400 respectively and can be used<br />

with square format sets (Stabilo<br />

seal and block bottom bags).<br />

New Machinery<br />

Biscuits, crackers and cookies<br />

are baked with efficient gains<br />

TDUKjunior.pdf 1 09/10/<strong>2015</strong> 10:40<br />

Anew biscuit baking oven<br />

bringing improvements<br />

in efficiency, hygiene<br />

and quality of manufacture<br />

has been introduced by Baker<br />

Perkins. Called the TruBake,<br />

it is the latest generation of<br />

direct convection oven which<br />

can bake every type of biscuit,<br />

cookie and cracker.<br />

Efficiency has been<br />

enhanced by re-engineering<br />

the burner and fan module<br />

to create a laminar flow of<br />

air over the full width of the<br />

burner. This continues into<br />

the ducts and plenums and<br />

leads to a stable and even<br />

distribution of convection air<br />

over the full width and length<br />

of the oven band.<br />

The result is precise,<br />

consistent and predictable<br />

Baker Perkins direct<br />

convection ovens have long<br />

employed the principle that<br />

higher volumes of lower<br />

temperature air improve<br />

product consistency and fuel<br />

efficiency. The TruBake features<br />

a new higher capacity fan to<br />

ensure that the volume and<br />

velocity of air is maintained,<br />

even in the longest zones.<br />

In conjunction with a burner<br />

turndown ratio of up to 20:1,<br />

this creates a wide operating<br />

envelope, making the oven<br />

suitable for every product from<br />

soft brownies to crackers.<br />

This new system takes<br />

baking from a ‘black art’ –<br />

relying heavily on operator<br />

experience – into a science.<br />

Cermex has designed a<br />

new automatic vertical<br />

case erector to handle<br />

American style RSC cardboard<br />

boxes at low to medium speeds.<br />

“The F312 offers the<br />

best compactness/price/<br />

performance ratio currently<br />

available on the market and<br />

is equipped with the high<br />

quality components and<br />

finished to the same level as<br />

our high-speed machines,”<br />

explains case packing<br />

product manager at Cermex<br />

Didier Saussereau.<br />

“Its quality and its reliability<br />

are unprecedented for<br />

low and medium speed<br />

machines, which makes it<br />

ideal for demanding industrial<br />

environments,” he says.<br />

The F312 is also a cost<br />

effective option to start<br />

automating the end of a line<br />

since it is easy to isolate,<br />

the erection function can<br />

constitute the first step in<br />

any automation project.<br />

Economical, ergonomic<br />

and flexible, the new F312 is<br />

an addition to the F3 range<br />

and is designed to handle<br />

American-style cardboard<br />

cases (RSCs and HSCs - half<br />

slotted containers) of any<br />

type, quality, and thickness<br />

of cardboard.<br />

Changing format takes less<br />

than two minutes thanks to<br />

quick-release fast adjustment<br />

systems (push-pull without<br />

requiring a crank handle),<br />

and the number of adjustment<br />

points being reduced. The<br />

modular design of the F312<br />

enables the user to choose<br />

between three types of<br />

closure for the bottom flaps<br />

of the box: hot-melt gluing,<br />

adhesive tape or double<br />

closure combining both<br />

(hot melt + adhesive tape).<br />

And for even more flexibility,<br />

a machine delivered with<br />

closure by adhesive tape can<br />

be retrofitted to offer hot-melt<br />

if the user subsequently<br />

wishes to change or upgrade<br />

its packaging process.<br />

Mounted in-line or installed<br />

at 90deg, the F312 fits into<br />

Installation News<br />

Controller delivers operating<br />

and operator gains in action<br />

Key to the development<br />

of a new automated<br />

duct-forming machine<br />

by Firmac Controls was the<br />

NJ controller from automation<br />

company Omron.<br />

Firmac and Swiss-based<br />

ducting producer Dresohn<br />

first developed the concept<br />

for what is now the Pro-Duct<br />

Evolution machine four years<br />

ago. “With the support of<br />

Dresohn, we set out to make<br />

the most advanced, intelligent<br />

and automated duct-forming<br />

machine in the marketplace,<br />

says Firmac Controls manager<br />

Gregg Firth.<br />

“Compared to our standard<br />

Pro-Duct machine, average<br />

production times and also<br />

machine setup procedures<br />

have been greatly improved,”<br />

he tells Machinery Update.<br />

“This, combined with the<br />

additional automation features,<br />

means that one operator can<br />

man the whole machine.”<br />

REDUCED SET UP TIMES<br />

In fact, because of reductions<br />

in setup times and overall<br />

downtime with the Pro-Duct<br />

Evolution, Dresohn’s output<br />

has increased and it has also<br />

reduced costs by moving from<br />

a three to two-shift production.<br />

Omron’s role was central<br />

to the success of the project,<br />

working on ways of replacing<br />

pneumatic and hydraulic<br />

actuators with alternatives<br />

controlled and positioned<br />

by servo drives. Engineers<br />

Latest innovation from Firmac, the<br />

CGF3 Integral Flanged Ductwork<br />

Switching to servos has resulted in a super-efficient 60sq m machine that can now be manned by a single operator<br />

helped to select the hardware<br />

solutions and integrate the<br />

entire control system.<br />

“The Omron NJ machine<br />

controller was the obvious<br />

choice for this application,”<br />

explains Ian Knight, Omron<br />

applications engineer. The<br />

complex motion requirements<br />

across 31 axes, integrated<br />

inverter control, along with the<br />

widespread IO network meant<br />

the built-in EtherCAT was the<br />

ideal network to accommodate<br />

all these requirements, he<br />

continues. Less time-critical<br />

devices, such as the machine<br />

HMI’s, were connected on<br />

the integrated Ethernet/<br />

IP network. The traditional<br />

solution would have meant<br />

the use of a PLC with a<br />

separate motion controller,”<br />

he tells Machinery Update.<br />

“Most of our existing lines<br />

use an Omron CP1L or CJ2<br />

PLC controller, with sheet<br />

positioning being controlled<br />

by open or closed-loop inverter<br />

drives,” says Firth. “So to go<br />

fully servo, especially on<br />

31 axes – with a further five<br />

on a robotic arm – was always<br />

going to be a challenge from a<br />

programming point of view,”<br />

he says.<br />

PROGRAMMING PLATFORM<br />

Omron says its Sysmac Studio<br />

programming platform<br />

provided the ideal tool to<br />

combine together all aspects<br />

of the machines software<br />

development across the entire<br />

60sq m line.<br />

The principle servo drive<br />

used for this application is the<br />

Omron G5 range. As well as<br />

the NJ controller, MX2 inverter<br />

drives and the NS HMI are also<br />

sourced from Omron.<br />

Once galvanised or stainless<br />

steel coils have been manually<br />

loaded onto the machine’s<br />

coil holders, the automated<br />

process can begin. One of<br />

the main design goals was to<br />

produce a duct without any<br />

manual intervention, says<br />

Firth. Entire processes, from<br />

machine setup to forming,<br />

folding and seam closing,<br />

have never before been<br />

automated to this degree.<br />

production output.”<br />

This ability to run multiple<br />

operations at once is a direct<br />

result of using Omron’s single<br />

machine controller.<br />

Other firsts attributable to<br />

the use of NJ machine control<br />

include the integration of a<br />

plasma cutter and a five-axis<br />

robot arm into the machine.<br />

“As a company, I know<br />

we’ve learnt many things<br />

during this machine build,”<br />

says Firth. “For example, some<br />

of the technologies applied<br />

to the Pro-Duct Evolution are<br />

now being transferred to less<br />

highly-specified machines in<br />

the company’s range.”<br />

The NJ uses EtherCAT to communicate<br />

The machine controller<br />

receives job data from an<br />

external networked computer<br />

system after which the<br />

required coil is automatically<br />

selected and fed into the<br />

machine. Servo-driven sideguides<br />

measure the coil<br />

width (which can vary by<br />

+/- 5mm) and communicates<br />

those settings to all the other<br />

machine operations: levelling,<br />

pleating, notching, roll-tooling<br />

and folding.<br />

A notched sheet with a<br />

formed male and female seam<br />

allowance passes through a<br />

series of roll-tooling stations<br />

to create a newly designed<br />

flange (known as CGF3) on<br />

either end of the duct.<br />

With the help of the robotic<br />

arm, the duct is folded before<br />

the seam is closed. Finally, the<br />

finished duct is then conveyed<br />

away from the machine.<br />

“Machine setup times are<br />

reduced further by the ability<br />

to set sections of the machine<br />

independently,” says Firth.<br />

“For example, while the roll<br />

tooling and folding section<br />

is busy, the infeed can be<br />

changing its setup and also<br />

the coil selection to suit the<br />

requirements for the next<br />

job, all without interrupting<br />

Removing human error on lines<br />

brings customers peace of mind<br />

During a food industry<br />

vision/ID technologies<br />

seminar organised<br />

by OAL Group and Cognex,<br />

Caroline Smales, technical<br />

manager at Greencore’s<br />

factory in Leeds outlined the<br />

difference OAL’s Autocoding<br />

system had made to the<br />

plant. As well as what further<br />

developments the food<br />

producer is planning for the<br />

technology.<br />

Greencore produces Yorkshire<br />

puddings at this factory in<br />

up to 200 different variants<br />

including sizes and packaging<br />

formats. Keeping track of the<br />

24 hours a day, seven days a<br />

week production is a challenge.<br />

The OAL Autocoding system<br />

was installed a couple of years<br />

ago as a result of a costly<br />

product recall following a<br />

packing error. Consequently,<br />

additional checks were<br />

implemented to ensure greater<br />

accuracy.<br />

Finally, however, the team<br />

realised that to ensure no<br />

product recalls or near misses<br />

in the future, human error<br />

had to be removed from the<br />

process which is where the<br />

Autocoding system came<br />

in. “What the system has<br />

given us is peace of mind<br />

and allowed us to regain<br />

customer confidence,” said<br />

Greencore produces up to 200 different variants of Yorkshire puddings in Leeds<br />

Smales. It has also removed<br />

all paperwork from the factory<br />

floor and become something<br />

of a show piece for the site.<br />

In operation, the<br />

Autocoding software, links a<br />

master database of product<br />

profiles, online (often Cognex)<br />

scanners and printers. And<br />

this is what gives companies<br />

complete control over their<br />

Redpack <strong>MU</strong> J-A <strong>2015</strong>_bmh 15/07/<strong>2015</strong> 07:08 Page 1<br />

processes as well as the ability<br />

to build and upgrade.<br />

This is the stage that Greencore<br />

now finds itself at. However,<br />

the company is looking to<br />

move from product quality<br />

checks and coding assurance<br />

to measuring its overall plant<br />

performance by using the data<br />

it is capturing each day.<br />

This is something that<br />

supplier of retail pre-packed<br />

hard cheese Adams Foods<br />

has already gone through.<br />

The company had already<br />

deployed OAL Autocoding to<br />

guarantee packaging security<br />

by continuously scanning<br />

2D barcodes and securing<br />

date codes by writing directly<br />

to line printers. In order to<br />

increase the payback on that<br />

investment, the company<br />

decided to use the same<br />

shop-floor touch screens<br />

to capture and report<br />

accurate overall equipment<br />

effectiveness or OEE values.<br />

“The variety of add-on<br />

modules meant we were able<br />

to include OEE reporting and<br />

live checkweigher links to<br />

meet the growing demands<br />

of our business,” explains<br />

director of operations at<br />

Adams Foods Jarnail Sani.<br />

A pilot installation of OEE<br />

on a single line has been<br />

extended across all of the<br />

24 lines at the site. One of the<br />

benefits has been the ability to<br />

display live giveaway values<br />

in real-time ensuring critical<br />

adjustments can be made<br />

during the shift, not at the end<br />

of the shift. Accurate timings<br />

on changeovers have also<br />

resulted, says the company.<br />

Trays are<br />

washed with<br />

ease on lines<br />

After visiting the demo area at<br />

Industrial Washing Machines<br />

(IWM), a chilled foods<br />

manufacturer ordered a purpose<br />

built, twin-lane machine for<br />

washing its plastics trays.<br />

The twin-lane traywasher<br />

manufactured by IWM<br />

incorporates a single stage<br />

dryer section and can achieve a<br />

throughput of 400-600 trays<br />

per hour, depending on their size<br />

and level of soiling. This high<br />

care machine was specifically<br />

designed to meet customer<br />

requirements and can handle a<br />

variety of tray sizes using two<br />

specially designed conveyor lines.<br />

One multi-purpose for large<br />

trays, the other for small containers<br />

that are washed on edge.<br />

The washer is robust<br />

and includes a fully welded<br />

construction with no exposed<br />

screw heads or threads inside.<br />

It is constructed from stainless<br />

steel for maximum hygiene.<br />

“The customer representatives<br />

were able to view controlled trials<br />

and were impressed with our<br />

interpretation of their specific<br />

requirements,” explains Carl Hollier<br />

managing director at IWM. “And<br />

when the order was placed, we were<br />

able to complete the project and<br />

deliver the machine in two thirds of<br />

the usual build time for customised<br />

equipment of this type.”<br />

The washing machine comes<br />

with digital display temperature<br />

controls for both tanks to make it<br />

easy to use on the shop floor.<br />

As a safety feature, and to<br />

maintain strict cleaning regimes,<br />

a standard low temperature<br />

alarm and cut out system for<br />

main wash and rinse functionality<br />

have also been included.<br />

IWM has also taken into<br />

account the customer’s<br />

requirement for easy cleaning<br />

access for the machine itself,<br />

Custom bagger allows<br />

for precise dispensing<br />

Norwegian household<br />

and personal care<br />

specialist Lilleborg has<br />

launched a stylish new wet<br />

wipe dispenser for kitchen<br />

worktop use and bought a<br />

custom built bagging machine<br />

from PFM to pack the refills.<br />

The dispenser is designed<br />

with a pop-up lid for ease of<br />

use and to ensure that wet<br />

wipes retain their moisture for<br />

as long as possible after the<br />

refill pack is opened.<br />

“One of the main objectives<br />

of the project was to improve<br />

the user experience with<br />

wet wipes,” explains Andre<br />

Henning-Raab, project<br />

manager at Lilleborg.<br />

“This meant looking at ways<br />

to ensure the packs don’t dry<br />

out during use, are properly<br />

sealed initially and to<br />

dispense one wipe at a time.”<br />

At the heart of the design is<br />

therefore a patented system<br />

of locking the refill within the<br />

dispenser via its closure and<br />

a cleat mechanism through<br />

which the wipes – made as a<br />

perforated roll rather than the<br />

more usual interleaved single<br />

sheets – are pulled to ensure<br />

separation of every sheet.<br />

Loading the<br />

dispenser is<br />

straightforward<br />

and takes under<br />

a minute.<br />

The refill<br />

packaging machine<br />

from PFM is based<br />

on the company’s<br />

latest Vetta vertical<br />

form, fill and seal<br />

unit, with product<br />

and cap feeding,<br />

sealing, and<br />

machine controls<br />

purpose built and<br />

specially adapted<br />

to the product.<br />

The pack is<br />

made at 90deg to<br />

its orientation in<br />

use. Wet wipe reels<br />

On the wet wipe<br />

dispenser, a pop-up<br />

lid and dispensing cleat<br />

ensure that the product<br />

is kept moist and that<br />

only one wet wipe is<br />

dispensed at a time<br />

The refill pack closure must locate within the dispenser and so accuracy of<br />

placement is essential. Secure sealing of the pack and closure is also paramount<br />

are fed on their side direct<br />

from the slitter-rewinder, via<br />

moistening, into a short buffer<br />

section at the top of<br />

the machine and<br />

then into the forming<br />

tube.<br />

Because of size<br />

variations in the rolls<br />

and their weight,<br />

PFM has employed<br />

a system of positive<br />

product control, with<br />

a plunger to press rolls<br />

down against a minor<br />

restraint - or ‘braking<br />

system’ - to ensure<br />

consistently accurate<br />

positioning within the<br />

tube of film, without<br />

risk of jamming or<br />

any freefall.<br />

The forming tube<br />

itself is also purpose<br />

designed, with a short<br />

vertical division at the<br />

head to keep the wet-wipe<br />

rolls to one side of the film<br />

tube while allowing space<br />

on the other for the closure to<br />

be fed down inside the film<br />

and aligned with an aperture<br />

in the film, punched out<br />

earlier.<br />

A vacuum unit then pulls<br />

the top of the closure through<br />

the film leaving the flange on<br />

the inner face for secure heat<br />

sealing to the film at the next<br />

station. The pack itself is then<br />

sealed.<br />

Throughout the process<br />

the film print, aperture<br />

position and cap position<br />

are continuously monitored<br />

and if necessary adjusted by<br />

the machine’s servo motor<br />

control, say PFM.<br />

PREMIER TECH<br />

CHRONOS ADVERT<br />

Aetna UK’s Robopac Compacta SPR stretch wrapping machine is playing a key role in A1 Towbars growth<br />

A1 Towbars is now delivering<br />

unassembled towbar packs to<br />

customers in pristine condition<br />

thanks to the installation of a stretch<br />

wrapping machine from Aetna.<br />

“Having raised the standards of the<br />

products and other parts of our process,<br />

we couldn’t allow the weakness in our<br />

packaging to let us down, and needed to<br />

address this problem with some urgency,”<br />

explains Mark Terry, chief executive at A1<br />

Towbars. “We changed our carrier to TNT<br />

and then made plans to invest in a semiautomatic<br />

machine which would provide<br />

us with a more secure packaging solution.<br />

“Our first attempt at purchasing a<br />

wrapping machine was a disaster,” he<br />

explains. The order was never fulfilled<br />

and so fortunately, through a referral,<br />

we found Aetna UK, he says.<br />

BOUGHT FROM DRAWINGS<br />

“Aetna gave us extensive advice, and in<br />

the end, we bought from drawings without<br />

actually seeing the machine ‘in the flesh’,”<br />

explains Terry. “Unfortunately, delivery of<br />

our wrapping machine was going to take<br />

longer than planned, but Aetna UK came to<br />

the rescue once again and provided us with<br />

a temporary one to get us started which<br />

dug us out of a big hole.”<br />

Aetna UK’s Robopac Compacta SPR<br />

is now playing an integral part in<br />

A1 Towbar’s business. Individual<br />

components are manually picked and<br />

placed on a cardboard bed; they then<br />

travel along a roller feed into the wrapping<br />

machine itself where they are automatically<br />

secured to the bed by stretch wrapping.<br />

The ends of the cardboard are folded and<br />

the components are placed, as a whole, in<br />

a box for final dispatch to the customer.<br />

“Not only has the Robopac Compacta<br />

SPR given us a secure packaging solution,<br />

it also affords us economy of scale, says<br />

Terry. “Seven percent of our product cost<br />

is in packaging, and the machine has<br />

reduced our need to stock a range of 39<br />

different sized boxes,” he says. “Because<br />

the product is now secure within the box,<br />

we now need only nine different sizes.”<br />

The Robopac Compacta SPR also<br />

copes well with the seasonality of the<br />

engineering firm’s business as it offers<br />

flexibility in terms of speeds. Between<br />

140 and 200 boxes are packed on a daily<br />

basis at the plant.<br />

“All in all, we couldn’t be happier with<br />

Aetna UK and its machine as it does exactly<br />

what we wanted it to do,” says Terry. “It’s<br />

easy to operate, our customers are getting<br />

their products in an undamaged and<br />

complete state so are delighted, and the<br />

company is making economies.<br />

“We have had tremendous service<br />

from Aetna UK, and I wouldn’t hesitate to<br />

recommend the company and its products<br />

to anyone who asked.”<br />

Exhibitors and visitors<br />

were delighted with<br />

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

with visitors able to see<br />

the very latest technology<br />

demonstrated throughout<br />

the three days.<br />

An opening keynote speech<br />

from Lord Digby Jones,<br />

former Minister of State for<br />

Trade and Investment set<br />

the tone for the seminar<br />

sessions which took place at<br />

the show. The exhibition saw<br />

prominent figures from across<br />

the manufacturing sector<br />

take to the stage with former<br />

Sainsbury’s CEO Justin King<br />

CBE providing the headline<br />

speech by exploding five<br />

myths he felt surrounded the<br />

food retailing sector.<br />

discussed the importance of<br />

the PPMA Show to the industry<br />

and its role in showcasing<br />

the latest technology on offer.<br />

Pavel Rokosz, project engineer<br />

at RB UK, for instance, said he<br />

was at the PPMA to see what is<br />

new on the market.<br />

“This is the number one<br />

show in the UK for us,” he<br />

as bronze and silver winners<br />

respectively during the event.<br />

Bove was awarded the title<br />

by a panel of judges having<br />

demonstrated his talent and<br />

dedication to the industry.<br />

He was also praised for the<br />

progress he’d made during his<br />

time working with Reiser, having<br />

started as an apprentice, before<br />

moving into the field as a service<br />

and installation engineer.<br />

“I feel incredibly privileged<br />

to have won gold in this year’s<br />

awards, it feels great to have my<br />

hard work recognised,” said Bove.<br />

“I hope these awards encourage<br />

the younger generation to work<br />

in the processing and packaging<br />

industry,” he said.<br />

Sponsored by Festo Training<br />

An international<br />

breakthrough in food<br />

safety inspection is<br />

how Fortress Technology<br />

described its Interceptor metal<br />

detector which was launched<br />

at the show.<br />

“Increasing stainless steel<br />

detection by 100% compared<br />

to the most recent generations<br />

of metal detectors, the<br />

Interceptor accurately inspects<br />

wet and conductive products<br />

and helps to eliminate false<br />

rejects to make it one of the<br />

biggest game-changers to hit<br />

the food processing sector<br />

in recent years,” claims Phil<br />

Brown, sales director of the<br />

inspection company.<br />

Specifically designed to<br />

tackle the longstanding<br />

challenge of high product<br />

rejects when using metal<br />

detectors to inspect meat,<br />

dairy, ready meals, bakery and<br />

fortified cereals applications,<br />

Fortress’s latest technology<br />

splits the frequency signals.<br />

This means that the machine<br />

can clearly differentiate<br />

between the signal generated<br />

by the product as a result of<br />

moisture or mineral content<br />

and any metal contaminant,<br />

putting a stop to a potential<br />

stainless steel signal being<br />

‘swamped’ by product effect.<br />

Although stainless steel<br />

contamination in products is<br />

a rare occurrence, the metal<br />

is prevalent in industrial<br />

food preparation equipment.<br />

“Whether you are mixing<br />

batches of bread or snack<br />

ingredients or slicing and<br />

dicing wet meat, bakery<br />

and cheese products into<br />

smaller portions using wires<br />

and knives, there’s a risk of<br />

tiny fragments entering the<br />

production chain,” Brown tells<br />

Machinery Update.<br />

The sensitivity of the<br />

Interceptor means it can<br />

pick up metal contaminants<br />

half the dimensional size<br />

previously identifiable claims<br />

Fortress “Detection depends<br />

on the size, shape and<br />

orientation of metal particles.<br />

“Although a test sample<br />

sphere isn’t a real world<br />

contaminant, a 0.5mm<br />

change in sphere size can<br />

equate to 25mm in wire<br />

length,” says Brown.<br />

The Interceptor builds<br />

on the simultaneous multifrequency<br />

technology<br />

introduced by Fortress<br />

some six years ago. The new<br />

technology works by carrying<br />

out a real-time analysis of a<br />

low-frequency and a highfrequency<br />

signal in parallel.<br />

PPMA Show Review<br />

Wrapping beverage collations<br />

in printed film cost efficiently<br />

Adpak Machinery<br />

Systems demonstrated<br />

a new single reel<br />

automatic overlap shrink<br />

wrapping system with<br />

automatic pack collation<br />

producing printed film<br />

collations of bottles or cans<br />

with the added benefit of<br />

on-going cost savings.<br />

“The ALX range has<br />

been specifically designed<br />

for use by manufacturers<br />

of various filled bottles or<br />

cans,” Amanda Jenkins, sales<br />

office manager at Adpak told<br />

Machinery Update during<br />

the three-day exhibition.<br />

The company is confident that<br />

a number of machines will be<br />

purchased following initial<br />

viewings on the stand.<br />

In essence, the machine<br />

is offering drinks producers<br />

and contract packers the<br />

flexibility of using high quality<br />

print registered film for their<br />

products at an affordable price.<br />

Manufactured in Italy<br />

by Smipack, the single reel<br />

machine has been designed<br />

to meet customer requests for<br />

the technology that can be<br />

produced with a 90 degree<br />

The ALX range offers drinks producers a cost effective way of using<br />

print registered films for their products<br />

infeed or inline solutions. The<br />

machine ensures any printed<br />

design on the shrink film is<br />

‘visible’ and accurately aligned<br />

to maintain a superior product.<br />

Application flexibility allows<br />

many options for customising<br />

the packaging process, for<br />

instance a base pad insertion<br />

device can be included,<br />

however more commonly,<br />

totally unsupported for<br />

standard machines.<br />

The BP802ARX 280R<br />

machine is especially suited t<br />

o production needs of up to<br />

30 packs a minute in a single<br />

lane format, depending on<br />

the type, size and stability of<br />

the product to be packed.<br />

It can process round or square<br />

products and can be equipped<br />

with a Divipack 150 model<br />

divider to divert the individual<br />

items at the machine infeed.<br />

Thanks to its extreme<br />

compact build – about an 11<br />

metre footprint – the shrink<br />

wrapper can be easily adapted<br />

to fit on any production line,<br />

even where reduced space is<br />

an issue, says the company.<br />

Smipack designs and<br />

manufactures a wide range<br />

of bottle handling systems<br />

and packaging machines for<br />

food and beverage, household<br />

cleaning, personal hygiene<br />

products, chemical and<br />

pharmaceutical products to<br />

meet with medium to high<br />

speed production requirements.<br />

Bakery purchases a third U-fold feeder at<br />

the show for its rolls and hot cross buns<br />

At the show, Longford<br />

International sold a third<br />

U-fold feeder to Nicholas &<br />

Harris to handle hot cross<br />

buns and bread rolls at the<br />

Salisbury-based bakery. The<br />

first two units were purchased<br />

at the PPMA Show the<br />

previous year.<br />

The unit feeds the flat cards,<br />

scores them and folds the<br />

sides before they are fed into<br />

the infeed of an Ilapak flow<br />

wrapper. At the bakery, the<br />

machine is operating at 100<br />

cards a minute but the feeder<br />

has a top speed of 200<br />

a minute, if required.<br />

Graham Collisson, area<br />

sales manager for the UK,<br />

Ireland, India and the<br />

Middle East for Longford<br />

was delighted with the<br />

quality of visitors he had<br />

seen throughout the threeday<br />

event. “I am pretty sure<br />

we will have another big sale<br />

before the end of the show that<br />

will be feeding and printing<br />

large animal feed sacks,” he<br />

told Machinery Update.<br />

Also highlighted on the<br />

stand was the Longford<br />

pharmaceutical track and<br />

In order to provide the user<br />

with maximum flexibility,<br />

the 3+1 system is formed using<br />

three pairs of stereo cameras<br />

and one built-in projector.<br />

Depending on the application,<br />

the combination of camera<br />

pairs can vary according to<br />

the size of the objects and the<br />

special distance used. This<br />

way, object sizes in the short<br />

and long range can be realised<br />

using the mvBlueSirius.<br />

Smooth operation is offered<br />

thanks to the development<br />

of the automatic calibration<br />

function. Automatic<br />

calibration means that<br />

vibrations, temperature<br />

variations and mechanical<br />

impacts<br />

which are all<br />

part of the<br />

everyday life<br />

of a robot<br />

have no<br />

influence<br />

on the<br />

measurement<br />

accuracy of<br />

the camera<br />

system.<br />

Shown for<br />

the first time in<br />

the UK was the<br />

high speed linear<br />

THz camera from<br />

Terasense that<br />

features both<br />

unprecedented<br />

imaging speed of<br />

5,000 frames per<br />

second and ease<br />

of integration into<br />

many industrial applications<br />

employing high speed<br />

conveyor belts.<br />

This product fits most<br />

conveyors with a belt speed<br />

up to 15 metres per second,<br />

says Raf Slotwinski, business<br />

development manager at<br />

Alrad.<br />

The imaging system<br />

consists of two parts:<br />

a terahertz imaging camera<br />

and THz generator, both of<br />

which are optimised and<br />

synchronised to each other.<br />

The generator is supplied with<br />

Belt speeds of 15 metres per second are handled<br />

a specially configured horn<br />

antenna designed to cover the<br />

entire imaging area across<br />

the conveyor belt while the<br />

camera pixel size determines<br />

image resolution of 1.5mm<br />

which is sufficient to support<br />

imaging in most industrial<br />

environments.<br />

Applications for the<br />

camera can be found in<br />

PPMA Show Review<br />

Leak detection advance ensures<br />

food waste is reduced at speed<br />

Ishida Europe<br />

launched a new<br />

leak detector to help<br />

food manufacturers<br />

minimise spoilage<br />

in prepacked retail<br />

products.<br />

The Ishida AirScan<br />

is designed for use<br />

with a wide variety<br />

of foods including<br />

fresh, cooked and<br />

cured meat, poultry,<br />

seafood, fruit, salads,<br />

vegetables, cheese<br />

and ready meals.<br />

It uses advanced laser<br />

technology to identify<br />

leaks of CO2 from<br />

holes as small as<br />

0.5mm in sealed<br />

modified atmosphere<br />

packaging (MAP) at speeds<br />

of up to 180 packs per minute.<br />

Also, it has been designed to<br />

integrate easily into existing<br />

production lines.<br />

“With retailers and suppliers<br />

under pressure to minimise<br />

food waste, packaging leaks<br />

have been associated with<br />

almost 500,000 tonnes of food<br />

wasted in production each<br />

year,” explains Alan Mutch,<br />

By maintaining optimum gas fill for each pack, the leak detector provides consistent product quality<br />

Ishida Europe’s quality control<br />

manager.<br />

“Compromised MAP packs<br />

can lead to bacterial spoilage,<br />

reduced shelf life and a<br />

damaging rise in complaints<br />

and returns,” he continues.<br />

“This can result in increased<br />

cost of production, loss of<br />

brand image and reputation,<br />

and the heightened risk of<br />

retailer fines.”<br />

Offering fast, 100%<br />

reliable and completely nondestructive<br />

identification of<br />

leaks of C02, the AirScan has<br />

been designed for fast moving<br />

production environments<br />

so that maximum quality<br />

can be achieved without<br />

compromising on high<br />

throughput speeds and<br />

minimum packing time.<br />

By maintaining the<br />

optimum gas fill for<br />

each pack, the leak<br />

detector provides<br />

consistent product<br />

quality, and<br />

allows production<br />

problems to be<br />

identified and<br />

rectified quickly.<br />

It also reduces<br />

the amount of<br />

packaging that has<br />

to be scrapped,<br />

while the nondestructive<br />

testing<br />

process ensures<br />

that product can be<br />

re-packed.<br />

“Investment in<br />

quality control<br />

equipment delivers<br />

quick commercial<br />

returns, not only by ensuring<br />

a high quality product<br />

leaves the factory gate, but<br />

also in providing retailers<br />

with the added reassurance<br />

that they are sourcing from<br />

responsible suppliers that<br />

can deliver high levels of<br />

customer satisfaction,”<br />

explains Mutch.<br />

PPMA Show Review<br />

Labellers meet health and beauty<br />

sector needs for speedy accuracy<br />

Premier Labellers<br />

launched a high speed<br />

precision wraparound<br />

labeller and demonstrated the<br />

P500 tube labeller at the show.<br />

The Premier P500 is a<br />

flexible and versatile label<br />

applicator designed to<br />

apply labels to a wide<br />

range of flexible tubes<br />

at speeds of up to 60<br />

tubes per minute. The<br />

company says it offers<br />

brand owners the design<br />

freedom to create a high<br />

quality product appearance<br />

at a lower cost compared to<br />

printed tubes.<br />

The P500 features the<br />

proven P250 3 phase stepper<br />

motor technology which when<br />

combined with a Siemens PLC<br />

touchscreen control system,<br />

ensures accuracy of +/-1mm<br />

on label placement combined<br />

with very low running costs.<br />

Clear and opaque labels up<br />

to 200mm wide can be applied<br />

partly or completely around<br />

a wide range of standard<br />

aluminium or plastic tubes. All<br />

parts are designed for quick<br />

and easy product changeovers.<br />

The new P120 Dual 3RW<br />

has been designed by Premier<br />

Labellers to provide a cost<br />

High speed wraparound label application is provided by the P120 Dual 3RW<br />

effective solution to high<br />

speed automatic wraparound<br />

label applications that require<br />

the highest level of accuracy<br />

and speed.<br />

The compact, modular<br />

design combined with<br />

reliable, cost effective stepper<br />

motor control and proven<br />

three roller mechanism<br />

Adpak <strong>MU</strong> N-D <strong>2015</strong> V3_Layout 1 26/10/<strong>2015</strong> 11:30 Page 1<br />

incorporates all the essential<br />

elements necessary for the<br />

most demanding labelling<br />

applications across many<br />

industries including toiletries,<br />

cosmetics, household, food<br />

and pharmaceuticals.<br />

Designed for use within<br />

any production line to provide<br />

high volume outputs in<br />

continuous operation, the<br />

P120 Dual 3RW now has the<br />

capability to reach much<br />

higher production speeds<br />

than on any other single<br />

three roller wrap system<br />

currently available,<br />

says Tracie White,<br />

md at the company.<br />

This is due to its<br />

twin lane conveyor<br />

system and simple<br />

diverter system that<br />

streams products<br />

from a single infeed<br />

conveyor to either<br />

one of its two lanes, it can<br />

also enable auto switching<br />

between each labelling<br />

station keeping down time to<br />

a minimum. The machine also<br />

features an intelligent product<br />

orientation system that will<br />

rotate products prior to label<br />

application via a range of<br />

different sensor options<br />

that detect a seam or<br />

embossing, an existing label<br />

or a specific colour or feature<br />

on a label.<br />

Additionally, the system<br />

can also apply front and back<br />

labels on round products with<br />

its double feed system.<br />

Integrated options are offered<br />

for materials handling project<br />

Integrated material handling<br />

solutions were displayed<br />

on the Advanced Handling<br />

stand with live demonstrations<br />

of box, sack, reel and drum<br />

handling.<br />

A recently installed vacuum<br />

lifting solution provided by<br />

the company involved 50kg<br />

cardboard boxes.<br />

With each box positioned<br />

on the floor the operator was<br />

previously required to open the<br />

box by hand, remove the bag<br />

inside and empty the contents<br />

into a drum. This three stage<br />

process was improved with<br />

the installation of a vacuum<br />

tube lifter. Using the Vacuhand<br />

V, the tube lifter performs<br />

the lifting of the boxes to the<br />

floor and the operator is able<br />

to open the bags while they<br />

are held in position using the<br />

‘hands off hover’ function.<br />

This allows the contents of the<br />

bags to be emptied directly<br />

into the drums.<br />

An internal protection<br />

grid was also added to the<br />

oval shaped suction head to<br />

protect the bags and stop them<br />

blocking the lifting tube.<br />

Attached to a jib crane,<br />

a three metre working radius<br />

was provided to suit this<br />

application, however the<br />

vacuum lifting solution is<br />

adaptable to different processes<br />

and working environments.<br />

Inspection equipment offers low<br />

cost of ownership for food firms<br />

Anritsu Industrial<br />

Solutions showcased its<br />

x-ray inspection system<br />

which is designed to help the<br />

food industry detect foreign<br />

bodies and contaminants.<br />

The XR75 x-ray inspection<br />

system was promoted at the<br />

show as robust, food safety<br />

technology that can reduce the<br />

lifetime cost of ownership by<br />

over 20% compared to other<br />

systems, as well as offering<br />

30% energy savings thanks to<br />

a low output x-ray generator<br />

which eliminates the need for<br />

a cooling system.<br />

Visitors to the stand were<br />

given demonstrations of the<br />

XR75’s new x-ray technology<br />

which is described as<br />

exceeding the needs of today’s<br />

demanding food processing<br />

industry. In addition to<br />

contaminant detection, the<br />

XR75 inspection system can<br />

identify product shape defects<br />

and packaging integrity.<br />

Easy to operate – x-ray<br />

images and inspection logs can<br />

be saved to the USB memory<br />

for HACCP compliance – and<br />

simple to maintain, no tools<br />

are required for removing<br />

Meeting industry<br />

print requirement<br />

SATO showcased its<br />

latest solutions for the<br />

processing and packaging<br />

industry including the NX<br />

series of industrial thermal<br />

printers and S84-ex and S86-ex<br />

print engines for high speed<br />

print and apply applications.<br />

The NX series of industrial<br />

printers features a display<br />

reading in 31 global languages<br />

and 100MB user accessible<br />

memory allowing formats,<br />

large graphics and custom<br />

fonts to be stored while<br />

delivering processing power<br />

and fast throughput speed of<br />

250mm per second. To ensure<br />

sturdiness and durability,<br />

essential parts including the<br />

frame, base plate and print<br />

head are manufactured using<br />

die cast aluminium.<br />

Alongside the NX series,<br />

SATO’s S84-ex and S86-ex<br />

print engines for print &<br />

apply applications were<br />

demonstrated and these<br />

units offer easy operation,<br />

setup and maintenance to<br />

reduce downtimes. Print head<br />

replacement is simple thanks<br />

to a tool-less design, lengthy<br />

cable and easy access, says the<br />

company. Locking side covers<br />

allow for quick and easy<br />

replacement of platen rollers,<br />

and the sensor cover’s design<br />

and non-stick surface help<br />

service engineers or operators<br />

easily clean or replace parts<br />

without any tools.<br />

Other highlights on the<br />

stand were the CG series of<br />

label printers – which offer<br />

high speeds of up to 101 mm a<br />

Getting ready to<br />

meet FMD needs<br />

We’ve all heard the<br />

story about the boy<br />

who cried wolf.<br />

It didn’t end well.<br />

But packaging<br />

machinery companies are saying<br />

that pharma firms in the UK are<br />

still not tackling the issues the<br />

Falsified Medicines Directive<br />

(FMD) bring, and this is definitely<br />

dangerous behaviour.<br />

One machinery company<br />

believes that if the UK firms don’t<br />

start to make some decisions soon,<br />

there won’t be any capacity in<br />

terms of expertise or systems to<br />

help them in time to meet FMD<br />

demands anyway.<br />

According to John McKeon,<br />

technical director of Portalis, the<br />

majority of companies are aware<br />

of FMD, however most have not<br />

quantified the actual commercial<br />

impact of non-compliance.<br />

“Consequently, most companies<br />

do not have a competent road map<br />

for implementing serialisation and<br />

achieving regulatory compliance,”<br />

he explains.<br />

“Serialisation has been seen<br />

as an additional production cost,<br />

without any recognition of the<br />

actual value of data generated in<br />

the supply chain continuum or the<br />

added protection to the end user,”<br />

he tells Machinery Update.<br />

It is clear that the majority of<br />

small and medium size pharma<br />

organisations as well as contract<br />

packers have been reluctant<br />

to invest in a solution as the<br />

requirements until now have been<br />

slightly unclear, he says. But, he<br />

believes, if they would take the time<br />

to know the regulatory environment<br />

they operate within and commit<br />

to change in order to achieve<br />

compliance, it would be a good<br />

start. “With board and management<br />

buy-in, the commercial and<br />

technological road map can be<br />

designed and delivered but only<br />

with the support of subject matter<br />

expert companies like Portalis,”<br />

he says.<br />

According to Ingolf Latz of OCS<br />

Checkweighers, UK companies<br />

are sleeping their way through to<br />

Act now or<br />

not at all…<br />

The next 21 pages<br />

and also improve<br />

their processing<br />

and packaging<br />

capabilities in<br />

pharmaceuticals<br />

FMD compliance, particularly the<br />

small to medium sized pharma<br />

companies. “This issue is not just<br />

about a printer and a vision<br />

system but the data and software,<br />

too,” he says. “It is nothing like<br />

adding best before dates as there<br />

is lots of work to do to comply.”<br />

Longford Europe is another<br />

company that believes many<br />

companies are leaving track and<br />

trace to the last minute. “However,<br />

larger companies are really<br />

pushing this at the moment and<br />

we are talking to them about our<br />

fully closed loop system,” says<br />

Graham Collisson, area sales<br />

manager for Longford.<br />

Meeting FMD demands<br />

requires time and effort that<br />

UK firms need to put in now<br />

Pharma manufacturers should<br />

combine the need to meet the<br />

requirements of the FMD with<br />

careful consideration about which<br />

coder is right for their particular<br />

application, says John Tierney,<br />

marketing director of Linx Printing<br />

Technologies.<br />

In recent years, there has been<br />

a great deal written about the<br />

implications of FMD and its role in<br />

ensuring the reliability of the<br />

medicinal supply chain but,<br />

believes Tierney, at the heart<br />

of this, there is still the need<br />

to be able to produce accurate<br />

and legible codes reliably and<br />

consistently. And manufacturers<br />

should not lose sight of the<br />

importance of selecting a coder<br />

that provides the best solution<br />

for their packs and packaging<br />

substrates, and which will<br />

function efficiently and<br />

integrate effectively on their own<br />

pharmaceutical production lines.

Data generation<br />

needs careful<br />

consideration<br />

Craig Stobie of Domino Printing Sciences examines the thinking<br />

behind how the vast amounts of data acquired under the auspices<br />

of the FMD will be collected, stored and interrogated – and why<br />

F<br />

or most pharmaceutical<br />

manufacturers the past couple<br />

of years should rightly have<br />

been about building the correct<br />

hardware eco-system and<br />

establishing the operating landscape<br />

to achieve a consistently high standard<br />

of robust marking to support item-level<br />

serialisation ahead of the implementation of<br />

the EU Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD).<br />

However, thoughts must now turn to<br />

the framework within which the data<br />

generated will be managed.<br />

In this feature we will take a look at<br />

the role of the bodies supervising the<br />

generation of data and those responsible<br />

for its management as well as how<br />

manufacturers can prepare the ground for<br />

positive data management.<br />

GS1 – THE SUPPLY CHAIN SUPREMO<br />

As the global standards body for product<br />

identification, GS1’s mission is to make<br />

companies more efficient by establishing<br />

a common language when it comes to<br />

identifying, locating, transporting and<br />

trading goods.<br />

Many manufacturers have been<br />

reluctant to start investing in equipment<br />

until the finite detail is confirmed. These<br />

are currently subject to consultation: on<br />

August 12 this year, DG SANCO issued a<br />

draft of the Delegated Regulation relating<br />

to safety features associated with the FMD.<br />

To help the entire community meet the<br />

compliance deadline (now likely to be<br />

late 2018 or early 2019), GS1 continues to<br />

scrutinise the data standards and structure<br />

requirements of the FMD. Through its<br />

Healthcare Users Group, GS1 is establishing<br />

and qualifying a network of suppliers that<br />

can provide the level of advice needed for<br />

standards implementation.<br />

A BIG PROBLEM FOR SMALL<br />

SUPPLIERS<br />

Manufacturers may know a little about data<br />

but for most companies, printing serialised<br />

barcodes onto packs on moving production<br />

lines in a dynamic environment will be a<br />

new challenge. Many have no experience<br />

of putting structured data into a global<br />

data pool, for instance, which is a central<br />

requirement of the FMD.<br />

The Electronic Product Code<br />

Information System (EPCIS) will be<br />

run by the Department of Health with<br />

input from GS1 and every code issued<br />

and used will go through its verification<br />

process. It is a way of structuring data<br />

globally and, although more complex in<br />

the pharmaceutical industry, is already<br />

proven in the food and beverage markets.<br />

Meeting FMD demands is not a quick process<br />

Under the FMD, each prescription piece, single ampoule or vial, and every pharma pack must be<br />

uniquely identifiable, using both human and machine readable information<br />

Pack marking is on the front line in the battle<br />

against fakes and fraudsters, says Domino<br />

to encode 50 characters in a symbol<br />

measuring just 2x2mm or 3x3mm, with<br />

a contrast ratio as low as 20% and a<br />

high degree of redundancy. This gives<br />

it a huge advantage when reading and<br />

authentication in a single pass is such an<br />

important part of the FMD process.<br />

GS1 will make available a whole raft<br />

of training and support material to help<br />

manufacturers implement the ECC200<br />

standard. The recommendation in the<br />

UK is for a GS1-approved Global Trade<br />

Identification Number (GTIN) while<br />

Germany and other countries will<br />

use both a GTIN and a national trade<br />

identification number (NTIN).<br />

This is an additional layer of<br />

complexity for which there is no shortterm<br />

solution but the Falsified Medicines<br />

Directive will eventually address this<br />

lack of standardisation. From 2018, every<br />

country must have the ability to accept<br />

information from the data pool, be able to<br />

verify it and also track its journey.<br />

THE EUROPEAN MEDICINES<br />

VERIFICATION SYSTEM<br />

Central to the successful implementation<br />

of the FMD will be a supranational<br />

database to provide real-time verification<br />

of products with a single scan. To achieve<br />

this, a number of industry stakeholders<br />

came together to establish the European<br />

Medicines Verification System (EMVS), a<br />

single interface for manufacturers across<br />

all Member States.<br />

Unique product data will be uploaded<br />

directly from the manufacturer, contract<br />

packer or parallel distributor to create<br />

a record for each item entering the<br />

supply chain. This remains available<br />

for interrogation through to the point at<br />

which the product is dispensed or sold,<br />

at which point the record is closed to<br />

indicate that the product is no longer in<br />

the supply chain.<br />

So far, so good. However, routes to<br />

market are notoriously long and complex<br />

in the pharmaceutical sector, such that<br />

national databases are also essential<br />

to enable the random/risk-based<br />

verification which is deemed an<br />

essential safeguard of the EMVS.<br />

Key to this is the ability to authenticate<br />

product via a code scan at any point in<br />

the supply chain.<br />

Our ‘ten cent tour’ of the EMVS brings<br />

us back to one of the key challenges of<br />

serialisation, which is that each item now<br />

consists of two indivisible parts –<br />

a physical asset and its data counterpart.<br />

Removing any item from the supply<br />

chain for reasons other than dispensing<br />

it creates significant challenges in<br />

managing the data asset, particularly<br />

where the serialisation scheme is<br />

randomised. The entire verification<br />

system depends on the ability to produce<br />

and read good quality item-level codes –<br />

which is why the ‘right first time’ principle<br />

is so critical.<br />

Contract packer<br />

Rottendorf Pharma<br />

has developed a<br />

modular serialisation<br />

solution with a carton<br />

printing system (CPS) and<br />

its IT interface from Bosch<br />

Packaging Technology.<br />

And, as director of<br />

packaging at the contract<br />

packer Carsten Stein<br />

explains, upon completion<br />

of our project, we will have a<br />

blueprint for all other lines.<br />

“No matter which further<br />

regulations come into force,<br />

we are equipped with a<br />

reproducible concept that<br />

meets customer requirements<br />

in different countries and<br />

regions,” he says.<br />

Although the term<br />

serialisation continues to<br />

cause widespread uncertainty,<br />

Rottendorf began to tackle it<br />

two years ago as the company,<br />

headquartered in Ennigerloh<br />

near Münster, Germany, is<br />

confident it knows what its<br />

customers require.<br />

“Integrating a serialisation<br />

module into our lines at a<br />

given date is not sufficient,”<br />

Carsten Stein, director of<br />

packaging at Rottendorf<br />

Pharma, explains. “Together<br />

with our partners Bosch<br />

and Advanco, our goal is<br />

to develop a multipliable<br />

concept at an early point in<br />

time, which enables us to<br />

respond flexibly to the various<br />

directives all over the world.”<br />

VARIED CUSTOMER BASE<br />

The company’s customer<br />

base is divided evenly<br />

between manufacturers of<br />

prescription medications,<br />

generic drugs, and OTC (overthe-counter)<br />

products. With<br />

sites in Germany, France and<br />

the United States, Rottendorf<br />

Pharma serves both large<br />

pharmaceutical corporations<br />

and medium-sized companies<br />

from all over the world,<br />

especially Europe and North<br />

America. “The serialisation<br />

requirements of the different<br />

countries show about as many<br />

similarities as differences,”<br />

says Muhammet Yavuz, head<br />

The modularity of the carton printing system and its IT interface was combined with project member motivation<br />

Serialisation<br />

across levels<br />

Machinery Update reports on how one contract packer<br />

has tackled serialisation issues with the help of Bosch<br />

of packaging technology at<br />

Rottendorf Pharma. “This is<br />

why we reviewed all national<br />

requirements at the beginning<br />

of the project and created a<br />

requirement profile for us and<br />

our suppliers.”<br />

After conducting the<br />

internal process and risk<br />

analysis, Rottendorf Pharma<br />

realised that all organisational<br />

areas such as packaging, IT,<br />

engineering, qualification and<br />

validation had to be involved<br />

in the project right from the<br />

start. From hardware and<br />

sensor technology through<br />

to line management and<br />

higher-level site management,<br />

all processes needed to be<br />

seamlessly interconnected.<br />

IT INTERFACE<br />

Therefore the interface with<br />

the enterprise IT was an<br />

important decision criterion.<br />

The CPS modules from Bosch<br />

can be linked with machine<br />

software and enterprise IT on<br />

a multi-stage basis, ensuring<br />

Rottendorf Pharma started to<br />

work on serialisation back in 2013<br />

to ensure it met future client needs<br />

a reliable assignment of serial<br />

numbers. By drawing on<br />

many years of experience in<br />

its own automotive division,<br />

Bosch has adapted the proven<br />

automation technology to the<br />

special requirements of the<br />

pharmaceutical industry.<br />

“Bosch has many successful<br />

applications in the market<br />

and was able to answer all<br />

our questions promptly,”<br />

says Stein. “In addition,<br />

all participants showed a<br />

high degree of flexibility<br />

and motivation for the timecritical<br />

project.” The ambitious<br />

target is to complete the<br />

implementation by the end<br />

of this year. The set-up of the<br />

serialisation process requires<br />

the involvement of as few<br />

different parties as possible.

all order data directly on to the<br />

packaging line. “We wanted to<br />

use the pilot phase to identify<br />

potential error sources as early<br />

as possible,” says Stein.<br />

Rottendorf Pharma’s CPS<br />

ten years’ time.”<br />

Fortress also provided an<br />

check the loose tablets as they<br />

emerge and free-fall through the<br />

detector apertures.<br />

Rejects are diverted into lockable<br />

bins that can be removed for secure<br />

disposal. Each unit can handle up<br />

to 30,000 tablets per minute and<br />

uses digital signal processing to<br />

detect particles down to 0.15mm<br />

Rejects are diverted into<br />

lockable bins that can then be<br />

removed for secure disposal<br />

for ferrous and non-ferrous metals<br />

and 0.3mm for stainless steel.<br />

Flexibility is key for the<br />

company as production runs can<br />

be anywhere between 100,000<br />

tablets up to 8 or 12 million which is<br />

where the Stealth pharmaceutical<br />

metal detectors score. First, the<br />

detectors include a library of<br />

product characteristics so they<br />

can swap between different<br />

products in seconds. They are also<br />

constructed from 316 stainless<br />

steel and offer Nema4X/IP65K<br />

protection against dust and liquids,<br />

so they can withstand the factory’s<br />

rigorous cleaning regime between<br />

production runs. In addition,<br />

they’re mounted on locking<br />

casters and offer powered height<br />

adjustment, which is unique in<br />

the market.<br />

ruling,<br />

Identifiers)<br />

to be assigned to medical<br />

devices and their related<br />

packaging now in force,<br />

general manager of Weber<br />

Packaging Solutions Patrick<br />

Hughes says manufacturers<br />

need to be certain that they<br />

have considered how this<br />

legislation affects their specific<br />

products, packaging and<br />

quality management systems.<br />

The UDI code is a unique<br />

numeric or alphanumeric code<br />

in two parts: a device identifier<br />

(DI), which is specific to a<br />

device model or type, and<br />

a production identifier (PI),<br />

which includes the current<br />

production information for<br />

that specific device, such as<br />

the production lot or batch<br />

number, the serial number<br />

and/or the date of expiry. The<br />

UDI code allows the device<br />

to be identified and traced<br />

through distribution and use<br />

by its label and marking, all of<br />

which can be cross-referenced<br />

with the GUDID (Global Unique<br />

Device Identifier Database).<br />

DO I NEED A UDI?<br />

“The first and most obvious<br />

question to be asked is: Does<br />

my product or device actually<br />

require a UDI, and if so, when<br />

should this be in place?” says<br />

Hughes. The requirements<br />

for device labels and device<br />

packaging to incorporate a<br />

UDI are being phased in over<br />

a number of years based on<br />

the risk factor of the device.<br />

For example, Class III<br />

devices, such as implantable<br />

pacemakers, must comply<br />

with the new rule within a<br />

year, Implants considered lifesustaining,<br />

or life-supporting<br />

devices must comply with the<br />

UDI rule within two years.<br />

Class II devices, medium<br />

risk products like infusion<br />

pumps, must comply within<br />

three years and low risk Class 1<br />

products such as hand-held<br />

surgical instruments must<br />

comply within five years.<br />

Aiding UDI<br />

compliance<br />

With UDIs (Unique Device Identifiers) needing to be<br />

assigned to medical devices and their related packaging<br />

we look at some of the common issues to consider<br />

Having established that a<br />

UDI is required, it is essential<br />

that consideration is given<br />

to existing manufacturing,<br />

marking and labelling<br />

processes as there may be<br />

changes required in a number<br />

of areas to meet compliance<br />

regulations, continues<br />

Hughes. The UDI must be<br />

consider which barcode or<br />

most appropriate, not only<br />

for any given device, but also<br />

the needs of the end user.<br />

For example, if the device<br />

has a long UDI number and<br />

a relatively small pack,<br />

manufacturers may need to<br />

consider using a 2-D Matrix<br />

style barcode to be able to fit<br />

all of the data on the label.<br />

Alternatively, for devices<br />

with a large label, and which<br />

will ultimately be used in<br />

local health centres or doctors<br />

surgeries, a conventional<br />

linear barcode may be more<br />

appropriate, as these sites may<br />

have limited bar code reader<br />

capability. Under the new

free to choose the code type<br />

as long as there is appropriate<br />

technology that can be used to<br />

acquire the data in the field.<br />

potentially face a unique<br />

series of challenges when<br />

setting out to meet UDI<br />

requirements and we can<br />

A vision system is<br />

preventing cross<br />

contamination<br />

Olmec UK has designed<br />

a novel vision system<br />

for 100% inspection of<br />

pharmaceutical tablets<br />

on packaging machines<br />

used for multiple products. This<br />

prevents cross contamination such<br />

as a tablet from a previous batch<br />

getting into the final packaging<br />

which can lead to life-threatening<br />

consequences for patients.<br />

“This was a challenging vision<br />

integration project, says Robert<br />

Pounder, technical director at Olmec<br />

UK. “The vision element was complex,<br />

with the added complications of very<br />

limited space for installation on the<br />

existing line and a requirement to<br />

ensure good operator access for<br />

cleaning of the lines.<br />

“And of course the system<br />

needed to be fully integrated into<br />

the packaging machine control<br />

system,” he says.<br />

The system was designed<br />

for a leading manufacturer of<br />

healthcare products to inspect a<br />

variety of tablet types. Some were<br />

homogenously white or blue in<br />

colour, while others were bi-colour<br />

– white on one side and another<br />

colour on the other. On the original<br />

system, tablets were dispensed<br />

from a vibratory bowl feeder into<br />

a chute which then feeds into the<br />

Robert Pounder from Olmec UK<br />

Using vision<br />

avoids error<br />

The bowl feeder<br />

is mounted above<br />

the camera and<br />

the illumination<br />

assembly<br />

packaging pouches. The vision<br />

solution involved a redesign of<br />

the chutes carrying the tablets, to<br />

permit inspection either of falling<br />

tablets or tablets stacked up in<br />

the chute before they enter the<br />

pouches. The new chute features<br />

a 1mm slit on each side through<br />

which the front and the rear of<br />

the tablets can be imaged as they<br />

pass through.<br />

Images of the front and rear<br />

of each tablet are acquired<br />

simultaneously by 4k resolution<br />

tri-linear colour line scan cameras<br />

positioned on either side of the<br />

chute. The cameras are externally<br />

triggered at 10 kHz and each slit is<br />

illuminated by two high intensity<br />

spotlights which are strobed by<br />

a high speed controller that also<br />

handles the triggering of the<br />

cameras. The system has to ensure<br />

that there is no mutual interference<br />

between the lights, so that the<br />

lights for each camera are only<br />

on when that camera is acquiring<br />

its images.<br />

A PLC handles integration of<br />

the system into the packaging<br />

machine’s control system.<br />

A special algorithm was developed<br />

for the measurement software to<br />

read a slice of data from the front<br />

and rear of the tablet to confirm the<br />

correct colour combination, and to<br />

allow for the fact that the tablets<br />

can enter the chute in random<br />

orientations.<br />

The system will automatically<br />

stop the packaging line as soon as a<br />

rogue tablet is identified, ensuring<br />

that no rogues can enter the final<br />

pouches. The camera system was<br />

mounted on a specially designed<br />

‘C’-shaped frame which can be<br />

cantilevered out for cleaning<br />

and set up of the packaging<br />

machine between batches. Since<br />

it is essential that the system is<br />

100% effective, Olmec supplied a<br />

comprehensive set of calibration<br />

and verification routines that can<br />

be used on a daily basis.<br />

inspection system.<br />

The task in hand requires<br />

finesse as it involves<br />

the precise labelling of<br />

cylindrical infusion bottles<br />

and the printing of variable<br />

information on these labels.<br />

The labels feature a small<br />

attached plastic loop that can<br />

be folded back later to serve<br />

as a hook in the hospital.<br />

Further components<br />

were added to the machine,<br />

including a laser printer that<br />

produces a colour change<br />

on the labels, and a camera<br />

system that checks the<br />

printed labels are correct.<br />

MODULAR DESIGN OFFERS<br />

POWERFUL VERSATILITY<br />

Thanks to its modular<br />

design, the wraparound<br />

labelling machine 132M HC<br />

offers versatility as users can<br />

specify independent elements<br />

and also adapt the machine to<br />

suit various product formats<br />

New line feeder is<br />

handling cartons<br />

The new RF inline feeder<br />

from Rotech uses patentprotected<br />

technology<br />

to help pharmaceutical<br />

manufacturers print<br />

erect cartons with information that<br />

complies with ISO/IEC15415 and<br />

thus remains clear and scannable<br />

at each stage of the supply chain.<br />

Ensuring that on-pack<br />

information such as twodimensional<br />

barcodes, batch<br />

numbers and expiry dates is<br />

printed clearly is an important<br />

step towards making medicines<br />

traceable all the way back to the<br />

manufacturer, says the company.<br />

The RF inline feeder is Rotech’s<br />

first system to feed cartons for<br />

inline printing and scanning,<br />

complementing the company’s<br />

established range of feeders for<br />

offline printing.<br />

“Pharma companies require data<br />

to be legible so it can be scanned at<br />

Line feeder<br />

meets needs<br />

With an adjustable top belt, the inline<br />

feeder can accommodate primary<br />

pre-formed cartons at conveyor speeds<br />

of up to 60 metres a minute<br />

The new feeder<br />

is the first from<br />

the company to<br />

handle cartons<br />

inline for<br />

pharma firms<br />

any stage from the manufacturer,<br />

right down to the pharmacy that’s<br />

dispensing it,” says Rotech director<br />

Richard Pether. “Our inline feeder<br />

combines a top and a bottom<br />

conveyor to gently grip and transfer<br />

primary cartons securely so they’re<br />

stable and orientated correctly as<br />

they approach the printer to ensure<br />

print quality.”<br />

The Rotech inline feeder uses a<br />

patent-pending drive arrangement<br />

to operate the top and bottom belts<br />

in perfect synch so the cartons<br />

cannot become skewed. “The top<br />

belt is driven mechanically from<br />

the bottom belt using a single<br />

drive,” says Pether. “It keeps the<br />

whole thing simple and makes<br />

it very cost-effective compared<br />

to competing systems that use two<br />

drives,” he claims.<br />

This drive is also positioned in<br />

the centre of the feeder, leaving<br />

both ends of the conveyor clear and<br />

making it easier to integrate the<br />

system within existing packaging<br />

lines. A compact overall conveyor<br />

length of just 750mm also makes<br />

it easier to squeeze the RF inline<br />

feeder into a tight space.<br />

Pre-formed cartons are accepted<br />

and then passed through the end<br />

user’s chosen printer and then a<br />

camera to spot any defects, which<br />

are ejected from the line using<br />

compressed air.<br />

The height of the top belt is<br />

adjustable to accommodate<br />

primary cartons from 15 to 125mm<br />

high. It can also handle cartons<br />

with a width from 55 to 200mm and<br />

length of up to 150mm at conveyor<br />

speeds of up to 60m/min.<br />

An on-board human machine<br />

interface makes it quick and easy<br />

to adjust the system for different<br />

pack sizes.<br />

Rotech specialises in feed<br />

systems and does not manufacture<br />

its own printers or cameras. This<br />

means that Rotech can recommend<br />

and supply a range of suitable<br />

third-party systems, and end users<br />

have the added flexibility of opting<br />

for printing and vision systems<br />

from whichever manufacturer<br />

they prefer to work with.<br />

Safer blister<br />

packs are<br />

introduced<br />

The Romaco Group presented<br />

the first ever anti-counterfeit<br />

solution for blister packs at<br />

ACHEMA in Germany.<br />

In an exclusive partnership<br />

with NANO 4 U, Romaco<br />

has developed an anticounterfeit<br />

solution for blister<br />

packaging that is suitable<br />

for pharmaceutical products<br />

and meets the EU Falsified<br />

Medicine Directive 2011/62 EU.<br />

At the show, Romaco<br />

introduced the Romaco Noack<br />

960 blister line with the new<br />

technology for unique primary<br />

packaging identification.<br />

This new solution for<br />

anti-counterfeit blister packs<br />

is based on a banknote<br />

authentication system but<br />

with further additions. It can<br />

be integrated into all blister<br />

machines equipped with<br />

coding stations.<br />

An individual hologram<br />

stamp gives a unique<br />

indication of originality<br />

in-line and without the use<br />

of additional materials while<br />

individual blister packs can be<br />

coded with overt and/or covert<br />

If implemented effectively, serialisation should have no negative impact on productivity or manufacturing costs<br />

Key to FMD<br />

is integration<br />

Machinery Update reports on how selecting an<br />

appropriate operating system impacts FMD demands<br />

According to ICE<br />

(Interactive Coding<br />

Equipment),<br />

selecting an<br />

appropriate<br />

operating system will be<br />

critical to meet the serialisation<br />

requirements of the Falsified<br />

Medicines Directive (FMD).<br />

“Many pharmaceutical<br />

companies will use different<br />

printing technologies and<br />

equipment to meet both<br />

their primary and secondary<br />

packing requirements,”<br />

points out ICE managing<br />

director Chris Simpson.<br />

“It is therefore vital that<br />

the relevant data can be<br />

shared between the different<br />

machines via the least<br />

complicated route.<br />

<strong>MU</strong>LTI-CODES<br />

“For example, if a<br />

manufacturer is printing<br />

data onto a pouch, which is<br />

subsequently placed into a<br />

carton before being packed in<br />

an outer case; three codes will<br />

need to be applied during the<br />

process. If each coder uses a<br />

different operating protocol,<br />

then linking these together<br />

may require additional<br />

software development work.”<br />

In order to avoid this,<br />

says ICE, pharmaceutical<br />

manufacturers need to work<br />

with suppliers who can<br />

ensure that all equipment is<br />

able to operate on a common<br />

platform and which is also<br />

able to interface easily with<br />

other equipment on the line.<br />

It is equally important that<br />

the equipment chosen has<br />

a software platform which<br />

will allow easy and low<br />

risk integration with legacy<br />

equipment and software.<br />

Emulation modes and drivers<br />

are often available to ease<br />

this process.

“A good operator interface<br />

should be equally effective<br />

regardless of the printing<br />

technology to which it is<br />

applied,” adds Simpson.<br />

has to be easily transferable<br />

throughout the packing<br />

and distribution operation,<br />

and able to be accessed<br />

for incorporation into any<br />

reporting procedures.”<br />

Also, for serialisation to be<br />

guaranteed in the print and<br />

apply process, the label needs<br />

to be applied to the pack<br />

immediately after it is printed<br />

– what is commonly known as<br />

‘last label’ capability.<br />

W www.interactivecoding.co.uk<br />

BROWSER INTERFACE<br />

Equipment which has web<br />

browser capability built in<br />

to the operating system will<br />

also enable it to interface with<br />

other packing machines to<br />

allow remote control of the<br />

coding operation with no<br />

risk of data compromise.<br />

A browser interface will often<br />

allow for effective remote<br />

diagnostics and audit data<br />

access, without the risk and<br />

complexity often present in<br />

bespoke integrations.<br />

As well as the need for<br />

software compatibility, there<br />

are also the physical aspects<br />

of integration to consider.<br />

“Whether seeking to install<br />

a coder into an established<br />

operation or setting up a new<br />

line, space is generally at a<br />

premium in most factories,”<br />

says Simpson.<br />

SMALL FOOTPRINT<br />

“A small footprint and form<br />

factor will ensure that coders<br />

can fit easily into existing<br />

packing lines or into parent<br />

packaging machines, and<br />

maximise the effective use of<br />

In terms of the capabilities<br />

of the pharmaceutical coding<br />

equipment, just as in any<br />

market, reliability, costefficiency<br />

and ease of use are<br />

prerequisites. Equally true,<br />

pharmaceutical codes need to<br />

be produced securely and<br />

with consistent accuracy.<br />

However, for effective<br />

serialisation there are several<br />

other critical criteria.<br />

SEVERAL CRITERIA<br />

“Each coder must be able to<br />

produce a wholly transparent<br />

‘audit trail’ – this provides<br />

confirmation of what the coder<br />

did at any particular time,<br />

how this was implemented,<br />

and who carried out the<br />

Feature: Pharmaceuticals<br />

The Glare sensor<br />

helps to detect the<br />

shiniest materials<br />

Sick has developed the<br />

Glare sensor to achieve<br />

almost 100% effective<br />

glossy material detection<br />

and discrimination<br />

for a wide range of production<br />

and packaging processes which<br />

was developed with European<br />

pharmaceutical and medical<br />

device packaging manufacturers to<br />

meet tougher anti-tampering and<br />

counterfeit regulations.<br />

With Sick Glare packaging<br />

processors can reliably detect tapes,<br />

seals and foils for tamper-proof<br />

packaging and high-gloss label<br />

quality inspection.<br />

“The innovative detection<br />

concept of Glare turns a weakness<br />

of most sensors into a strong<br />

function for packaging production<br />

lines,” explains David Hannaby<br />

product manager at Sick for<br />

Presence Detection. “Instead of<br />

sensors being dazzled by glare,<br />

it uses glare to do the sensing to<br />

achieve a highly-reliable process<br />

for detecting and assessing<br />

the gloss properties of any shiny<br />

materials.<br />

“When detecting transparent<br />

tamper-proof seals, for example,<br />

Glare distinguishes reliably<br />

between the reflection from the<br />

label and the scattered, diffuse<br />

reflections from the rougher surface<br />

of the packaging material.<br />

“It can easily be configured to<br />

discriminate between different<br />

degrees of gloss to obtain precisely<br />

the required results.”<br />

Following in-process trials,<br />

the new Sick Glare is already<br />

being used by Bosch Packaging<br />

Technology in its CPS serialisation<br />

solutions achieving 100% reliability<br />

in detecting machine-applied<br />

transparent tamper-evident safety<br />

labels in operation.<br />

The Sick Glare is a compact (42.5<br />

x 44 x 43.4mm), all-in-one IP67<br />

unit. It delivers robust presence<br />

detection and exceptional gloss<br />

optical property and discrimination<br />

performance even with high<br />

ambient light levels, deep colour,<br />

Sensors are<br />

a glossy act<br />

Sick Glare can be<br />

configured to<br />

discriminate<br />

between different<br />

degrees of gloss<br />

transparent tape, text and shiny or<br />

holographic finishes.<br />

Primarily designed to detect and<br />

discriminate between gloss levels<br />

on flat surfaces, the unit is able to<br />

cope with ±5o misalignment and<br />

variation, adding to its effectiveness<br />

and a function Sick says other<br />

gloss sensors cannot match. The<br />

detection rate is highly resistant to<br />

vibration, too.<br />

The Glare comprises a central<br />

strip of eight LED emitters<br />

surrounded by two receiver<br />

lines, which enable its unique<br />

misalignment and tilting<br />

tolerance and vibration resistant<br />

performance, backed by the<br />

The sensor uses glare to<br />

to achieve a highly reliable<br />

process for assessing the gloss<br />

properties of shiny materials<br />

patented Delta-S sensor technology.<br />

Installation and configuration are<br />

easy with the integral three button<br />

pad, allowing simple teach-in on<br />

the spot with typical objects, and<br />

several operating modes; a security<br />

key prevents operative override to<br />

eliminate ‘false nuisance’ readings.<br />

Alarm levels can be set to indicate<br />

contamination, declining standards<br />

and other parameters.<br />

Light levels and sensing<br />

modes are adjustable to suit the<br />

application. The integrated I/O<br />

link facilitates integration with<br />

PLC and servo motor control and<br />

allows remote diagnostics and<br />

programming/reprogramming.<br />

As required in a pharmaceutical<br />

environment, the configuration<br />

data is stored centrally in the<br />

machine controller. Sick Glare<br />

settings and programming are<br />

remotely held on a PLC, enabling<br />

rapid switch-in if the sensor needs<br />

replacing.<br />

Feature: Pharmaceuticals<br />

System offers<br />

wins for oral<br />

solid dosing<br />

The U21 high efficiency Comil is the next<br />

generation of conical milling for pharma<br />

oral solid dosage (PSD) applications from<br />

Ytron-Quadro.<br />

Capable of improving on-target PSDs<br />

by +50%, the unit is engineered to meet<br />

previously unattainable particle size<br />

distribution demands of pharma oral<br />

solid dosage powder processing facilities<br />

worldwide,” says the company in the UK.<br />

It achieves what no other conical mill<br />

is capable of doing; an unprecedented<br />

reduction in unwanted ‘fines’ and ‘overs’<br />

between 25% to +50%, combined with<br />

the ability of +40% improvement in<br />

throughput capacity. And all this is<br />

accomplished with the same footprint as<br />

the standard Comil U20 model.<br />

With breakthrough, patent-pending,<br />

screen and impeller re-designs, the new<br />

Comil has been engineered to maximise<br />

size reduction efficiency inside the milling<br />

chamber by distributing milling forces<br />

more evenly, consequently increasing<br />

on-spec product and narrowing PSD<br />

spans (potentially eliminating the need<br />

for classifying equipment). This approach<br />

to screen milling efficiency also reduces<br />

heat transferred to the product by several<br />

degrees – inhibiting screen blinding.<br />

Quadro says this new unit is the first<br />

conical mill with a lubricant-free gearbox<br />

in the pharma market which eliminates<br />

potential product contamination in the<br />

unlikely event of a damaged or underserviced<br />

shaft seal. This development<br />

reduces gearbox sound levels.<br />

The U21 Comil offers the widest range<br />

of available screens and impellers,<br />

enabling greater milling precision and<br />

product quality, and is available in an XP<br />

configuration or ATEX certified.<br />

Serialisation is<br />

for flat cartons<br />

The Digiline single 450 pharma from Atlantic<br />

Zeiser prints serial numbers on flat carton boxes<br />

Atlantic Zeiser says its fully<br />

integrated system for printing<br />

serial numbers on flat cartons<br />

ensures high quality and<br />

process security even when<br />

orders have to be processed quickly.<br />

Digiline single 450 pharma<br />

encompasses not only all of the essential<br />

printing, labelling, vision and transport<br />

systems, but also the new and powerful<br />

unique code software. It is designed to<br />

comply with all current and forthcoming<br />

serialisation regulations.<br />

“Packaging service providers in<br />

particular need to respond to the call<br />

for fast and error-free delivery,” insists<br />

Helmut Schneider, product group<br />

manager packaging at Atlantic Zeiser.<br />

“The pharmaceutical industry imposes<br />

very strict requirements as regards<br />

product quality and the reporting of<br />

production data and in this context,<br />

Digiline single 450 pharma represents<br />

an efficient and reliable end-to-end<br />

solution for delivering non-duplicated<br />

and error-free codes.”<br />

The unique code software that forms<br />

part of the package has the ability to<br />

recognise duplication when data is being<br />

imported. Highly flexible and efficient<br />

production planning is facilitated by<br />

the option of apportioning production<br />

orders to several machines – without<br />

incurring any risk – and of interrupting<br />

production to redistribute orders.<br />

Integrated order management functions<br />

keep a constant check on both<br />

machines and orders – even when<br />

several machines are operating at the<br />

same time in different locations.<br />

INSPECTION CAMERAS<br />

In combination with inspection cameras,<br />

the built-in unique code software enables<br />

the system to make absolutely certain<br />

that the type, code layout and serial<br />

number match one another on the carton.<br />

Products that do not comply with the<br />

prescribed criteria are automatically<br />

and reliably removed from the<br />

production cycle.<br />

In such cases, the unique code software<br />

ensures that serial numbers are not<br />

duplicated and reprinted, even in the<br />

event of operating errors, malfunctions<br />

or other unusual situations. All the<br />

issued serial numbers are permanently<br />

and securely saved together with<br />

status information in the database<br />

for further processing.<br />

SENSING FROM ICE<br />

COLD TO VERY HOT<br />

New from wenglor is the optical<br />

sensor OptoTemp that permits<br />

contactless temperature<br />

measurement within a range from<br />

-25 to +350deg C based on the<br />

infrared radiation emitted by the<br />

object, regardless of the material<br />

it is made from and its state of<br />

aggregation.<br />

The measurement of infrared<br />

radiation is quick and contactless<br />

while the object itself is not<br />

influenced in any way. Thanks<br />

to its two switching outputs and<br />

an analog output, the sensor<br />

is suited to various measuring<br />

applications, for example target<br />

versus actual value comparison<br />

and absolute measurement.<br />

The integrated laser alignment<br />

tool and a teachable emission<br />

factor make initial start-up quick<br />

New inverter designed<br />

to reset performances<br />

The F800 inverter from Mitsubishi Electric is said to achieve previously unattainable energy saving performance<br />

Mitsubishi Electric<br />

has developed a new<br />

generation of drive<br />

technology for its latest pump<br />

and fan inverter, the FR-F800,<br />

which it says offers previously<br />

unattainable performance<br />

in terms of energy saving,<br />

optimised speed control,<br />

simple start-up, connectivity<br />

and the versatility of its<br />

combined features.<br />

The F800 is designed to<br />

be used predominantly with<br />

pumps and fans but is equally<br />

suitable for compressors<br />

and HVAC applications.<br />

It features many new functions<br />

that ensure accurate control,<br />

while also achieving energy<br />

efficiency figures of 98%.<br />

There are initially six units<br />

in the series, three covering<br />

the 200V-240V range from<br />

0.75kW-110kW and three more<br />

in the 380V-500V range from<br />

0.75kW-630kW.<br />

At the heart of the all new<br />

FR-F800 is a bespoke PID<br />

controller and on-board PLC<br />

which provides the drive with<br />

true stand-alone capabilities.<br />

For instance, it can control<br />

fans, pumps and compressors<br />

directly rather than requiring<br />

an additional controller.<br />

Other PID functions include:<br />

a pump-stir function, upper<br />

and lower limit pre-warnings,<br />

pipe burst detection and dry<br />

run protection, water hammer<br />

prevention and automatic<br />

tuning.<br />

To enhance its capabilities,<br />

the F800 is fitted with a<br />

second PID controller. The<br />

drive can be used to control<br />

multiple pumps - allowing<br />

for variable speed control<br />

and the energy efficiency<br />

benefits which that brings,<br />

to be applied to different units<br />

while the others are running<br />

effectively Direct On Line.<br />

DRIVE ALGORITHM<br />

Instead of relying on single<br />

set points for trip activation,<br />

an algorithm in the drive<br />

can effectively detect the<br />

fan or pump torque curve<br />

of the attached load and<br />

react appropriately when<br />

operational limits are<br />

approached, which means an<br />

end to nuisance trips caused<br />

by unusual but not critical<br />

load variations.<br />

Far fewer false alarms<br />

means more uptime, fewer<br />

maintenance trips and faster<br />

responses to genuine issues<br />

such as jammed pumps,<br />

broken impellers, snapped<br />

belts etc which can now be<br />

more accurately detected by<br />

the new drive.<br />

EFFICIENT PRODUCT<br />

Improving energy efficiency<br />

for an already efficient product<br />

is all about making small<br />

advancements on many<br />

fronts and the F800 has a<br />

wide range of dedicated<br />

features and functions that<br />

create efficient operation,<br />

says the company. For<br />

example, during standby all<br />

unnecessary circuits are shut<br />

down to reduce energy usage.<br />

Advanced Optimum<br />

Excitation Control (AOEC)<br />

maximises energy savings<br />

even for high torque loads,<br />

while intelligent cooling<br />

fans only activate when<br />

required because a set<br />

point temperature has been<br />

reached.<br />

This latest software update<br />

enables the algorithm to be<br />

activated directly via the<br />

CNC program on Sinumerik<br />

840D sl. As a result, each<br />

time processing parameters<br />

change, processing steps are<br />

optimised, leading to superior<br />

precision and also maximum<br />

productivity.<br />

Additionally, the Adapt Jerk<br />

Filter Time (AJET) feature for<br />

Sinumerik 840D sl optimises<br />

motion sequences. AJET<br />

recognises the different<br />

phases of interpolation and<br />

fast traverse and switches<br />

between the parameters for<br />

precision and maximum<br />

acceleration.<br />

By automatically switching<br />

between operating parameters,<br />

a machine can achieve the<br />

You need. weQube.<br />

Importantly, says Siemens, every Sinumerik includes friction compensation<br />

best possible quality during<br />

the machining phase and<br />

superior productivity during<br />

the positioning phase.<br />

The latest software version<br />

for Sinumerik Operate also<br />

includes machine optimisations,<br />

such as improved friction<br />

compensation.<br />

72 MACHINERY UPDATE NOVEMBER/DECEMBER <strong>2015</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

Regulations<br />

Permanent means of<br />

access rules updated<br />

Neil Dyson<br />

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

Updates to EN ISO 14122 ‘Permanent means of access to machinery’ are expected to come into<br />

force by the end of this year. Here, we review the key changes in Parts 1 and 2 of this four part<br />

standard, parts three and four will be reviewed in future issues<br />

EN ISO 14122 ‘Permanent<br />

means of access to<br />

machinery’ is a four<br />

part standard that was first<br />

introduced in 2010. CEN’s<br />

(the European Committee for<br />

Standardisation) updates to<br />

the standard are expected to<br />

come into force by the end<br />

of this year. It is therefore<br />

imperative that machinery<br />

users are aware of the key<br />

changes to this standard and<br />

are ready to implement them<br />

as appropriate.<br />

The four parts of the<br />

standard cover different<br />

elements associated with<br />

ensuring that any permanent<br />

means of access to machinery<br />

is safe.<br />

PART 1 - CHOICE OF A<br />

FIXED MEANS OF ACCESS<br />

BETWEEN TWO LEVELS<br />

EN ISO 14122-1 gives advice<br />

about how to identify the most<br />

appropriate means of access<br />

when this is not possible<br />

directly from ground level.<br />

The most significant change<br />

in the scope of Part 1 is the<br />

type of machinery. Previously<br />

the standard applied to<br />

both stationary and mobile<br />

machinery, whereas the new<br />

standard is only applicable to<br />

stationary machinery. While<br />

CEN intends to develop a<br />

standard for mobile machinery,<br />

until that is available we<br />

advise that EN ISO 14122-1 is<br />

still followed.<br />

The new standard explicitly<br />

refers to ‘fixed ladders’ rather<br />

than simply ‘ladders’. This<br />

clarifies matters further for<br />

end-users and stops any<br />

potential misunderstanding<br />

as to what type of ladder the<br />

standard is referring.<br />

Section 5 covers how a<br />

method for a fixed means of<br />

access is chosen. It states that<br />

it is preferable to give access<br />

to control devices, and other<br />

parts of the machine, from<br />

either ground or floor level.<br />

Where this is not possible a<br />

list of alternative methods are<br />

given to make things clear.<br />

Whereas the old standard<br />

required that stairs should<br />

have an angle of pitch<br />

between 30deg and 38deg,<br />

the new standard only states<br />

a minimum requirement of<br />

pitch of angle of 30deg.<br />

This reduces confusion as<br />

in the Terms and Definitions<br />

section stairs are already<br />

defined as having an angle of<br />

pitch from more than 20deg<br />

up to 45deg. Figure 5 of the<br />

standard shows a diagram<br />

which outlines the different<br />

allowable angles for each<br />

means of access, be it a ramp,<br />

stair, stepladder or fixed<br />

ladder.<br />

PART 2 - WORKING<br />

PLATFORMS AND<br />

WALKWAYS<br />

Part 2 applies to working<br />

platforms and walkways<br />

which are part of a machine,<br />

as well as means of access<br />

that are part of a building,<br />

where its main function is<br />

to provide means of access to<br />

the machine.<br />

Once again, the old version<br />

applies to both stationary and<br />

mobile machinery, whereas<br />

the new one is only applicable<br />

to stationary machinery.<br />

To increase clarity for the<br />

reader, the new version also<br />

adds some detail to the Terms<br />

Machinery users need to be<br />

aware of the key changes as well<br />

as be ready to implement them<br />

and Definitions section,<br />

further distinguishing<br />

between the definition of<br />

a walkway and temporary<br />

walkway, as well as a working<br />

platform and temporary<br />

platform. It also adds two<br />

completely new definitions:<br />

1. Baseboard – filler plate<br />

between working platform<br />

and adjacent construction<br />

element.<br />

2. Toe-plate – rigid vertical<br />

plate on a landing platform<br />

or flooring to prevent the<br />

fall of objects.<br />

Updates to section<br />

4.2.4 ‘Floorings’ include<br />

an entirely new section –<br />

4.2.4.1 ‘Restrictions due to<br />

structures’, which states<br />

that when there are existing<br />

structures in place, a single<br />

opening may be allowed<br />

through the walkway, for<br />

example if there are pipes<br />

crossing the platform.<br />

What was section 4.2.4.4-b<br />

‘Joints’ has been deleted and<br />

expanded significantly to<br />

become 4.2.4.5.2 ‘Gap between<br />

working platform, walkways<br />

and adjacent construction<br />

element’. This details the<br />

requirements for any gaps,<br />

such as fitting a baseboard or<br />

toe plate if the gap is greater<br />

than 30mm. Section 4.2.4.6<br />

(now 4.2.4.7) is also expanded<br />

to take into consideration<br />

clated walkways for the<br />

first time and includes<br />

requirements for how they<br />

are constructed, including a<br />

detailed diagram.<br />

Section 4.2.6 ‘Temporary<br />

platforms and walkways’<br />

is also completely new.<br />

This outlines specific<br />

requirements for foldable,<br />

slideable, height-adjustable<br />

and hinged parts. For the<br />

first time, the manufacturer<br />

must also state in the<br />

instructions for use the<br />

number of persons and<br />

maximum loads allowed.<br />

In all cases the updated<br />

standard will only apply to<br />

machinery manufactured after<br />

the date of final publication.<br />

This means that for older<br />

equipment, the 2010 standard<br />

EN ISO 14122 must still be<br />

followed.<br />
