ppma matters<br />

A big thank you to all<br />

for a great Total show<br />

A big thank you to all the PPMA<br />

group members, exhibitors and<br />

visitors that made the recent Total<br />

Processing and Packaging Show<br />

in Birmingham such a success.<br />

Visitors and exhibitors were 20%<br />

up on the previous show which we<br />

are determined to carry forward<br />

now that the PPMA has once again,<br />

taken full control of the event.<br />

The core strategy of our show<br />

has always been that a wide<br />

selection of machinery on working<br />

display will attract production<br />

engineers and other decision<br />

makers from the end user community and this was certainly the<br />

case in June. Some deals were done there and then (see page 7)<br />

and hopefully all parties will be busy on projects initiated at the<br />

exhibition. For anyone who missed the three-day event, details of<br />

machinery launched at the exhibition are contained in our review<br />

which starts on page 18.<br />

And I’d ask you to please make a note now of the 2014 PPMA<br />

Show which will open its doors on September 30 and run until<br />

October 2 – this will also be in Hall 5, at the NEC, Birmingham.<br />

Register your interest now at www.ppmashow.co.uk and you’ll be<br />

kept fully informed of developments or even help to shape its future.<br />

The PPMA and Total shows are often the first introduction you,<br />

the end user has to the association, and as positive as these<br />

shows are, there is much more to the PPMA Group than this.<br />

It was founded in 1987 as a national association of suppliers of<br />

processing and packaging equipment to the UK market. Since<br />

2010 the PPMA has been augmented by the inclusion of BARA<br />

(British Automation and Robot Association), UKIVA (UK Industrial<br />

Vision Association) and PMMDA (Polymer Machinery<br />

Manufacturers and Distributors Association) and combined<br />

as the PPMA Group of Associations.<br />

It exists to link potential customers with suppliers and their<br />

technology so that they can do business. It also exists to inform;<br />

so that customers can make the best purchase decisions and<br />

there are many technical services that PPMA provides to help<br />

with this process including a full seminar programme on various<br />

useful topics.<br />

I’d also like to thank you for supporting the PPMA Group<br />

Industry awards held on the opening night of Total (see page<br />

10-11). Damon Hill once said that ‘Winning is everything – the<br />

only ones that remember you when you come second are your<br />

wife and your dog.” That ISN’T the case with these awards and I’d<br />

urge members and end users to enter next year as it is vital that<br />

innovation and good practice is promoted and appreciated within<br />

our industry.<br />

Print it.<br />

Apply it.<br />

Forget<br />

about it.<br />

We worry<br />

about print<br />

and apply<br />

labelling so<br />

you don't<br />

have to!<br />

Show brings successes<br />

across several sectors<br />

The Total Processing and<br />

Packaging exhibition had a total<br />

attendance of nearly 8,800<br />

people at the NEC, Birmingham<br />

in June with several companies<br />

reporting successes throughout<br />

the three day event.<br />

Within five minutes of the<br />

doors opening, Partners in<br />

Packaging (PiP) had secured<br />

an order for denesting and<br />

feeding/folding equipment from<br />

a major biscuit manufacturer in<br />

the UK. The company will<br />

work in conjunction with<br />

automation and robotic systems<br />

specialists Quasar Automation,<br />

who will project manage the<br />

contract and Ilapak, who will<br />

supply the flow wrapping<br />

technology. PiP will supply an<br />

Alpha Two tray denester and a<br />

Streamfeeder Pro-series Flowfold<br />

U card feeder and folder.<br />

“We’re pleased to confirm our<br />

partnership with PiP on this<br />

exciting new installation which<br />

will see us integrate four Staubli<br />

TP80 high speed picking robots<br />

into a packaging line,” says Bob<br />

Hinchcliffe of Quasar. “As first<br />

time exhibitors, we couldn’t<br />

have asked for more out of<br />

the show.”<br />

Record apprenticeship levels<br />

According to new figures<br />

released by the National<br />

Apprenticeship Service,<br />

almost 370,000<br />

apprenticeship applications<br />

were submitted online<br />

between February and April<br />

this year, representing 32%<br />

growth on the same period<br />

last year. Apprenticeship<br />

vacancies also witnessed<br />

significant growth – up 15%<br />

on the previous year.<br />

Stemmer Imaging has become<br />

a sponsor of the Bloodhound<br />

SSC project which will be<br />

attempting to set a new world<br />

land speed record in 2015.<br />

Stemmer will supply and<br />

integrate up to eleven cameras<br />

at strategic points on the jet<br />

Streamfeeder Flowfold to Bob Hinchcliffe of Quasar Automation and<br />

Tony McDonald of flow wrapper manufacturer Ilapak<br />

sector, the number of<br />

apprenticeship applications<br />

has increased by over<br />

10%, while the number of<br />

vacancies has gone beyond<br />

this and increased by<br />

over 20%.<br />

“We want more employers<br />

to take advantage of the<br />

advice and support available<br />

from the National<br />

Apprenticeship Service and<br />

consider how hiring an<br />

apprentice could benefit their<br />

business,” says Matthew<br />

Image originated by Curventa and Siemens<br />

Hancock MP, Skills Minister.<br />

Two new guides to hiring an<br />

apprentice have been<br />

developed to encourage<br />

employers, especially<br />

SMEs, to take on an<br />

apprentice. Through<br />

www.apprenticeships.org.uk,<br />

employers can access a) A<br />

small and medium sized<br />

employers’ guide to hiring an<br />

apprentice and/or b) A large<br />

employer toolkit, to help set<br />

up apprenticeships in an<br />

organisation.<br />

Metal detectors that<br />

meet retail standards<br />

Fortress Technology is<br />

reinforcing the message that<br />

its Vector combined metal<br />

detector/conveyor system<br />

complies with all retailer<br />

standards, including the<br />

guidelines outlined in the<br />

updated Code of Practice for<br />

metal detectors set by leading<br />

retailer Marks & Spencer<br />

(M&S).<br />

When M&S upgraded its<br />

Code of Practice for metal<br />

detection equipment last<br />

October, all manufacturers<br />

looked to ensure that their<br />

metal detection equipment<br />

would meet them. But, says<br />

Sarah Ketchin, managing<br />

director of Fortress<br />

Technology, there has been a<br />

misconception within the<br />

industry in recent months that<br />

only certain metal detection<br />

equipment complies.<br />

“We’re obviously keen to let<br />

customers know that Fortress<br />

Technology produces<br />

equipment that matches and,<br />

in fact, exceeds the highest<br />

standards set within metal<br />

detection,” she says.<br />

Fortress’s Vector all-in-one<br />

conveyor/metal detector<br />

system complies with all the<br />

additional features required in<br />

the M&S document and more.<br />

From initial presentation<br />

through to the accurate<br />

rejection of a contaminated<br />

product, including all the<br />

failsafe’s to ensure system<br />

integrity, the Vector ticks all of<br />

the boxes.<br />

Plus, adds Ketchin, the<br />

system comes with a<br />

Stealth control panel<br />

developed for future redesigns<br />

while upgrades to the machine<br />

can be retrofitted to older<br />

models.<br />

FMD could aid efficiencies<br />

“While the unit-level<br />

serialisation requirement of<br />

the impending EU Falsified<br />

Medicines Directive (FMD) is<br />

one of the most significant<br />

challenges faced by the<br />

pharmaceutical packaging<br />

effectiveness.”<br />

So said Craig Stobie when<br />

he spoke at the Total<br />

Pick & place<br />

any proteins<br />

Marel has produced a high<br />

performance IPL robot that<br />

can be configured to virtually<br />

any application in the protein<br />

sector. Single, fresh or frozen<br />

portions or sliced groups of<br />

bacon, cooked deli meats,<br />

fish and cheese, can be<br />

picked from the infeed<br />

conveyor and placed straight<br />

into trays or a thermoformer.<br />

This new IPL robot can pick<br />

and place at speeds of up to<br />

80 packs a minute per head<br />

(depending on product), and<br />

because of its long reach –<br />

1250mm – it can load even<br />

the widest thermoformer at<br />

high payloads. Payloads<br />

of up to 4.2kg can be handled<br />

albeit at reduced speeds.<br />

Special gripper technology<br />

contributes greatly to<br />

accuracy, product presentation<br />

and overall efficiency.<br />

Made in stainless steel and<br />

titanium, the head and control<br />

panel is 100% washdown to<br />

IP69. The head pairs<br />

lightness with strength in a<br />

hygienic design for high<br />

product safety and no risk of<br />

contamination.<br />

Conveyor system aids<br />

accurate positioning<br />

Conveyor system specialists<br />

AlphaChase and packaging<br />

company Linkx Systems has<br />

jointly developed the iCon<br />

conveying system to offer a<br />

convenient and flexible<br />

solution to the problem of<br />

accurate product positioning<br />

on conveyors.<br />

With the iCon systems,<br />

options for product positioning<br />

are almost unlimited; and they<br />

include lateral movement<br />

across the conveyor, rotation,<br />

merging, diverting and<br />

gapping, all of which are<br />

achieved without the need to<br />

use conventional diverters or<br />

guides. This not only<br />

simplifies the design and<br />

construction of conveying<br />

installations, but also provides<br />

greatly enhanced versatility,<br />

as the operational parameters<br />

can be easily reprogrammed.<br />

As the system has no<br />

readily accessible moving<br />

parts, it is considerably safer<br />

than conventional product<br />

positioning solutions, says<br />

David Hayward, managing<br />

director of Linkx Systems. The<br />

fact that it needs far less, if<br />

Key to the versatility of the system is a multidirectional roller top<br />

conveyor belt which is manufactured by System Plast<br />

any, inconvenient guarding<br />

provides the additional<br />

benefits of improved<br />

maintenance access and<br />

reduced maintenance costs.<br />

Having a smaller footprint<br />

than traditional conveyors,<br />

along with smaller transfer<br />

areas, means the iCon system<br />

can be used in areas previously<br />

considered impractical.<br />

Key to the versatility of the<br />

system is a multidirectional<br />

roller top conveyor belt<br />

manufactured by System<br />

Plast. This belt is made up of<br />

a large number of cells, each<br />

of which contains a freely<br />

rotating ball. By arranging for<br />

the balls to be driven by<br />

subsidiary belts beneath the<br />

main conveyor, the speed and<br />

direction of rotation of the balls<br />

can be controlled. Since<br />

products on the main<br />

conveyor rest on the balls, this<br />

means that the products can<br />

be made to rotate or to move<br />

in any required direction.<br />

In the iCon system, the<br />

System Plast belt is<br />

complemented by a control<br />

system that has been<br />

developed by Linkx Systems<br />

to provide a convenient yet<br />

flexible way of precisely<br />

controlling the subsidiary belts<br />

that drive the balls.<br />

new machinery<br />

Side beam x-ray is launched<br />

Ishida Europe has extended<br />

its range of x-ray inspection<br />

systems with the launch of a<br />

model capable of detecting<br />

both metallic and non-metallic<br />

contaminants (such as glass,<br />

stones and rubber) within<br />

products packed in PET<br />

bottles, Tetrapaks, carton<br />

brick packs and pouches.<br />

output is immediately shut<br />

down if the integrity of<br />

the chamber is ever<br />

compromised. The machine’s<br />

stainless steel construction,<br />

with an open framework for<br />

easy cleaning, conforms to<br />

HACCP requirements. The<br />

main body is IP-65 rated and<br />

the inspection chamber IP-66.<br />

“This is another important<br />

development that helps to<br />

ensure food quality and<br />

safety,” says Jim Bedford,<br />

Ishida Europe’s product<br />

manager for x-ray systems.<br />

0121 607 7700<br />

www.ishidaeurope.com<br />

The x-ray system delivers<br />

valuable brand protection<br />

The new Ishida IX-GE-B3034<br />

provides food safety<br />

monitoring to deliver valuable<br />

brand protection for<br />

manufacturers, reducing the<br />

negative implications and high<br />

costs of customer complaints<br />

and product recalls. Uniquely,<br />

the machine takes product off<br />

existing conveyors and returns<br />

it after inspection, meaning it<br />

can be easily integrated into<br />

current production layouts with<br />

minimal disruption.<br />

The x-ray system offers<br />

automatic set-up and rapid<br />

warm up within 90 seconds<br />

for fast and accurate<br />

operation. There is no need<br />

for routine calibration and<br />

sensitivity levels can be<br />

checked without interrupting<br />

product inspection.<br />

A choice of reject systems<br />

is available and the<br />

IX-GE-B3034 can also be<br />

specified with fill level and cap<br />

detection to avoid under-filled<br />

and incorrectly sealed packs.<br />

The sealed conveyor<br />

chamber ensures safe<br />

operation without the need for<br />

protective curtains, and x-ray<br />

Conveyor can<br />

save energy<br />

Conveyor Systems (CSL) has<br />

launched a new energy efficient<br />

24V non-contact accumulation<br />

conveyor (zero line pressure).<br />

The new 24V motorised roller<br />

conveyor is designed to handle<br />

most regular shaped products,<br />

but is ideally suited for providing<br />

smooth transfer of fragile,<br />

irregular shaped or high value<br />

goods, singulating and<br />

accumulating online to avoid<br />

product contact or line pressure.<br />

Energy savings are offered<br />

Conveyors are manufactured<br />

with either extruded low profile<br />

aluminium side frames or from<br />

mild steel construction.<br />

In operation, individual<br />

product ‘zones’ – normally one<br />

per product – are created along<br />

the length of the conveyor<br />

system, each driven by a<br />

reliable, energy efficient 24V<br />

brushless motorised roller that<br />

is PLC controlled in conjunction<br />

with sensors located in each<br />

of the driven zones to monitor<br />

the path of the products along<br />

the conveyor.<br />

These conveyors offer<br />

maximum flexibility to handle<br />

varying throughput rates, unit<br />

sizes and traffic patterns,<br />

including ‘singulation’ or ‘train<br />

release’ (slugs of products) to<br />

support easy and safe removal<br />

of packs to/from the conveyor.<br />

As specific conveyor zones<br />

only run when there are<br />

containers present, this drastically<br />

reduces energy consumption<br />

and noise, says CSL.<br />

CSL can supply single<br />

conveyor modules or designed<br />

as a complete turnkey system<br />

with full integrated controls.<br />

On-machine seasoning<br />

offers snack flexibility<br />

tna has launched intelli-flav 5<br />

which is said to offer the<br />

ultimate flexibility in<br />

on-machine seasoning (OMS)<br />

applications by offering<br />

consistent coverage and<br />

flavour for both wet and dry<br />

seasoning.<br />

Fully integrated with both oil<br />

spray and flavour injection<br />

systems, this new system<br />

provides total control of<br />

adhesion and fast flavour<br />

changes for snack lines.<br />

Designed to deliver a<br />

combination of performance,<br />

simplicity and flexibility, this<br />

new evolution of the intelli-flav<br />

range features a responsive<br />

variable mass seasoning<br />

system with dynamic vibratory<br />

weigher to directly control oil<br />

spray and powder flow into<br />

the drum. This enables an<br />

accurate, proportional amount<br />

of seasoning to be evenly<br />

applied to the product for<br />

improved coverage and<br />

flavour dispersion.<br />

The new OMS provides total control of adhesion and fast flavour<br />

changes on snack lines for both wet and dry seasoning<br />

Further performance<br />

benefits are realised through<br />

the enhanced position of the<br />

scarfplate on the infeed.<br />

Mounted to the edge of the<br />

drum, the scarf better directs<br />

the product into the spraying<br />

and flavouring area, providing<br />

high quality seasoning<br />

performance. Additionally, the<br />

newly designed scalloped<br />

infeed conveyor allows more<br />

product to enter the seasoning<br />

drum, while also helping to<br />

control product direction<br />

for greater accuracy and<br />

reduced waste.<br />

With a simple, modular<br />

design, the intelli-flav 5 is fully<br />

enclosed for increased levels<br />

of hygiene and ease of<br />

cleaning. Moreover, a new<br />

pivoting drum improves<br />

accessibility for hard to reach<br />

areas, simplifying day-to-day<br />

operations.<br />

80 cycles a minute can be<br />

Thermal control<br />

is independent<br />

on each of the<br />

lanes on the<br />

Tornado Flow<br />

achieved on each lane,<br />

depending on bag size and<br />

the material used. This<br />

enables a total output between<br />

160 – 480 bags a minute in<br />

pillow style. Depending on the<br />

lane format, 200mm long bags<br />

can be produced in 135mm<br />

(4 lane), 110mm (5 lane) and<br />

90mm (6 lane) widths.<br />

The multilane format offers<br />

greater flexibility and the<br />

upper machine has been<br />

Turnkey system delivers<br />

gold standard efficiency<br />

Relaunching its Nescafé Gold<br />

instant coffee in a new jar<br />

shape and decoration has<br />

involved Nestlé installing new<br />

Krones labellers across six<br />

international facilities but at its<br />

German facility in Mainz, it<br />

placed a turnkey order with<br />

Krones for a complete coffee<br />

filling and packaging line.<br />

The relaunch of the brand<br />

was dubbed the Ergos project<br />

and it has a goal to set a new<br />

standard of labelling<br />

excellence for a glass<br />

package of instant coffee, to<br />

add to the shelf impact. Nestlé<br />

Product Technology Centre<br />

had developed a new<br />

container which it called 24 K.<br />

This has concave recesses on<br />

four sides, is flattened at the<br />

edges and is dressed in high,<br />

narrow body and back labels<br />

affixed by cold gluing, and<br />

self-adhesive side and lid<br />

labels for all the product<br />

specifications.<br />

Label, adhesive and above<br />

all the labelling technology<br />

involved had to be precisely<br />

matched to the new design.<br />

Nestlé opted for Topmodule<br />

labellers from Krones rated at<br />

19,800 containers an hour,<br />

supplemented by a Checkmat<br />

featuring specially developed<br />

software and a dynamic<br />

upstream buffer.<br />

Most of the lines are given a U-shaped layout<br />

Depending on the size of the glass jar, the Variopac Pro creates various tray formats to meet distribution needs<br />

This combination of kit was<br />

installed across all facilities<br />

where Ergos was being<br />

implemented.<br />

For the Mainz plant, two<br />

small lines have been<br />

replaced with one larger line<br />

and as a turnkey vendor<br />

Krones’ task was to coordinate<br />

existing machinery with its<br />

own new machines as well as<br />

equipment from other<br />

manufacturers. An existing<br />

linear air rinser, induction<br />

sealing units and a pallet<br />

wrapper had been earmarked<br />

for continued use. Krones then<br />

integrated a filler from Optima<br />

and a closer from Zalkin, while<br />

the remaining kit was supplied<br />

by Krones or manufactured<br />

in house.<br />

“Our lines are usually given<br />

a U-shaped layout,” explains<br />

Bernhard Rau, Foreperson in<br />

the filling and packaging hall.<br />

“The containers are passed<br />

from the dry end to the<br />

separate filling zone, and back<br />

into the packaging segment.”<br />

Pallets of bulk glass are fed<br />

in, and the film removed, after<br />

which a Krones Pressant bulk<br />

glass sweep off depalletiser<br />

The new jar has concave recesses on four sides<br />

moves them layer by layer<br />

onto a mass conveyor. After<br />

they have been spaced out<br />

and turned upside down, they<br />

are blown out with dry air in a<br />

linear glass cleaner.<br />

Containers are then passed<br />

to the separate hygiene zone,<br />

where the coffee powder, after<br />

being fed into an overhaul funnel,<br />

descends by gravity to a rotary<br />

volumetric filler with 32 filling<br />

valves which fill the jars.<br />

To ensure aroma retention,<br />

the jars are then sealed with<br />

a membrane and closed<br />

with a turning lid.<br />

Jars are then dressed on<br />

the Topmodule labeller,<br />

beginning with an Autocol<br />

station which applies pressure<br />

sensitive labels to the lid,<br />

followed by two cold glue<br />

stations for the front and back<br />

labels and another pressure<br />

sensitive labelling station for<br />

stickers on the side of the lid.<br />

Two Checkmat cameras<br />

then inspect the precise label<br />

position and monitor the<br />

presence of front and back<br />

labels. Containers then leave<br />

the hygiene area and are<br />

passed back to the dry end for<br />

film wrapping and palletising.<br />

manufacturers specific<br />

needs. It was designed to<br />

provide for smooth<br />

transportation and product<br />

accumulation without product<br />

contact or line pressure, plus<br />

optimum reliability and easy<br />

maintenance.<br />

Individual product ‘zones’<br />

were created along the length<br />

of the conveyor system, each<br />

driven by a 24V brushless<br />

motorised roller that in turn<br />

drives slave rollers via linking<br />

belts. Each zone has a<br />

retro-reflective sensor to<br />

monitor the path of the<br />

products along the conveyor.<br />

When the first product<br />

moves or is removed from<br />

the zone, the flowing zones<br />

(if occupied) are powered to<br />

feed forward to the next<br />

available zone and index<br />

product in sequence.<br />

Product can be removed<br />

from the conveyor at any<br />

location on the conveyor and<br />

the system will operate to<br />

allow full accumulation.<br />

total processing & packaging review<br />

Show reflects upturn in<br />

manufacturing fortunes<br />

Taking place on 30<br />

September – 2 October<br />

next year, the PPMA Show<br />

2014 will deliver more<br />

features, more speakers<br />

and more innovation than<br />

ever before.<br />

“After twelve successful<br />

years running the PPMA<br />

Show as a joint venture with<br />

Reed Exhibitions, the time<br />

is now right for us to take<br />

the management back in<br />

house,” explains David<br />

Harrison, PPMA Group<br />

exhibitions manager.<br />

“Run for the industry by the<br />

now presents an even more<br />

exciting opportunity for<br />

visitors.”<br />

With the PPMA Group<br />

Industry Awards going from<br />

strength to strength, plans<br />

are also afoot to create a<br />

greater synergy between<br />

the awards and the<br />

PPMA Show.<br />

“A focus on innovation will<br />

be one of the Show’s<br />

strengths going forward,<br />

along with increased<br />

features that will be integral<br />

to the Show’s success,”<br />

says marketing manager<br />

Grant Collier.<br />

to the NEC, Birmingham<br />

in June.<br />

Optimistic<br />

Speaking about the optimistic<br />

atmosphere at the NEC,<br />

Simon Taylor, sales and<br />

marketing director for Endoline<br />

thought the exhibition offered<br />

a timely reminder that “we<br />

really do appear to be looking<br />

at an up-turn in economic<br />

fortune.”<br />

Total was also the stage for<br />

a number of success stories,<br />

with many exhibitors reporting<br />

high levels of good quality<br />

leads and product enquiries.<br />

“The relevance of the<br />

automation and robotic<br />

systems we showed really hit<br />

the spot for so many visitors,<br />

Pouch machines offer<br />

extra-fast changeover<br />

A range of horizontal pouch<br />

form-fill-seal machines that<br />

cut changeover times<br />

dramatically by using servo<br />

drive and format<br />

adjustment in place of<br />

traditional mechanical<br />

systems was announced<br />

by Italian manufacturer<br />

PFM Packaging Machinery.<br />

The D-Series Full Servo<br />

stand-up pouch machines<br />

mark PFM’s entry into the<br />

market for this style of<br />

equipment and are the<br />

result, explains PFM’s R&D<br />

director Andrea Fioravanti,<br />

of an R&D programme<br />

that now accounts for over<br />

3 per cent of company<br />

turnover.<br />

“The D-Series opens up<br />

new horizons in the pouch<br />

sector by offering the<br />

opportunity to modify cycle<br />

times, sealing pressure and<br />

cutting pitch as part of the<br />

product programme.<br />

It offers easy maintenance<br />

and cleaning, high<br />

performance and extremely<br />

short format changeover<br />

times,” he says.<br />

This fast changeover is<br />

the result of full servo drive<br />

which allows the three<br />

principal modules of the<br />

machines – film unwind,<br />

pack forming station and<br />

filling section – to be set<br />

and synchronised<br />

automatically, rather than<br />

by manual mechanical<br />

adjustment.<br />

On format change, the<br />

cutting and side seal<br />

assembly that forms the<br />

pack not only adjusts<br />

automatically to the new<br />

size, but simultaneously<br />

registers with the pack<br />

transport conveyor, which<br />

accepts each newly formed<br />

pouch into grippers for<br />

Grippers that carry pouches through filling and sealing adjust<br />

instantly via servo for a change in width on the D-Series range<br />

carriage through filling and<br />

final sealing. The usual<br />

manual adjustment is<br />

eliminated.<br />

Also, unlike conventional<br />

pouch machines, on which<br />

as many as 20 sets of<br />

grippers on a single chain<br />

may need to be adjusted<br />

manually to the new pouch<br />

width, the D-Series<br />

machines employ servo<br />

adjustment that moves the<br />

grippers immediately.<br />

“The machines<br />

overcome the most<br />

common problems in<br />

pouch production,<br />

particularly changeover<br />

times where hours taken<br />

with traditional<br />

mechanically-driven<br />

equipment for a new<br />

pack format can often be<br />

cut to minutes,” says<br />

PFM UK sales director<br />

Chris Bolton.<br />

A wide variety of packs<br />

and accessories can be<br />

handled, including spouts<br />

with caps and reclosable<br />

systems, at speeds up to<br />

140 a minute. Filling<br />

systems cater for both<br />

liquids and powders and<br />

there is also a multihead<br />

weigher option, allowing<br />

dry ingredients to be mixed<br />

in precise proportion<br />

before filling.<br />

More control gives benefits<br />

Loma Systems has formed an<br />

exclusive partnership with<br />

AutoCoding Systems to<br />

develop a real-time data<br />

analysis tool for improved<br />

operational control, efficiency<br />

and easy-access compliance<br />

reporting.<br />

Launched to the UK market<br />

at the show, the new Ethernet<br />

PC-based software system is<br />

designed to monitor the<br />

performance of multiple Loma<br />

checkweighers and metal<br />

detectors while providing<br />

instant feedback across all<br />

production lines in a central<br />

format. By consolidating<br />

accurate data in this way,<br />

operators can identify and<br />

address inefficiencies quickly<br />

rather than waiting for<br />

historical reports.<br />

This level of control also<br />

enables information relating to<br />

contaminant detection rates,<br />

weight and overfill records to<br />

be compiled quickly to show<br />

compliance with current<br />

legislation.<br />

The availability of real-time<br />

data from Loma checkweighers<br />

is of particular value in<br />

recording and tracking the<br />

cost of product giveaway<br />

pre line against baseline<br />

performance targets.<br />

“By partnering with<br />

AutoCoding Systems, we have<br />

extended our capabilities in<br />

data capture to offer<br />

customers a remote reporting<br />

solution based on the latest<br />

software technologies, which<br />

can be installed on any<br />

production line and has the<br />

advantage of ongoing<br />

specialist technical support,”<br />

The tray and lid packing<br />

with a high quality shelf<br />

presence while retaining a<br />

quick to open and tamper<br />

evident facility, says Rovema.<br />

Flexibility is the key to multiple<br />

packing formats and a variety<br />

of tray/lid sizes can be<br />

accommodated with the use of<br />

an intelligent semi-automatic<br />

changeover system.<br />

The unit moves a pre-erected<br />

lid over the product and then<br />

onto a flat tray blank which is<br />

erected around the lid. By<br />

doing this, the product remains<br />

untouched during the<br />

manufacturing process which<br />

is an essential requirement<br />

when dealing with Doypackstyle<br />

bags in particular.<br />

On show was the medium<br />

speed version which is capable<br />

of packing 12 cases a minute<br />

Window patches are<br />

speedy inline option<br />

Advanced Labelling<br />

Systems (ALS) has<br />

developed a window<br />

patching system for cartons<br />

that is capable of working on<br />

a high speed line.<br />

Called FastPatch, the<br />

system successfully uses a<br />

self-adhesive label for the<br />

first time and is designed to<br />

not only speed up the whole<br />

process but also save time<br />

and handling costs.<br />

As ALS managing director<br />

Phil Donaldson says, the<br />

desire to create a selfadhesive<br />

version is not new,<br />

but never before have all the<br />

requirements of crystal clear<br />

visibility, excellent adhesion<br />

and high speed application<br />

come together, until now.<br />

For years, traditional<br />

window patches – for<br />

cartons containing cakes,<br />

for instance – have been<br />

applied off-line using large<br />

machines that cut rolls of<br />

clear material, apply the<br />

adhesive and press the<br />

window shape onto the<br />

carton. This process runs<br />

much slower than a usual<br />

carton line and results in the<br />

inefficiencies of double<br />

handling, while some carton<br />

makers send this work offsite<br />

for completion.<br />

All of this not only ties up<br />

staff, but also adds to lead<br />

times for products.<br />

FastPatch labels from ALS<br />

are supplied on rolls and are<br />

created with permanent<br />

adhesive coated precisely to<br />

match the shape of the<br />

carton aperture. It is carried<br />

on a backing liner and then<br />

die-cut in register with the<br />

excess waste removed.<br />

“This allows it to perform just<br />

like a regular label,” says<br />

Donaldson.<br />

www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

FastPatch is applied using the ALS FastPaQ range of machines<br />

The difference with this<br />

system is that no adhesive<br />

ever comes into contact with<br />

the centre of the label which<br />

means it retains its clarity<br />

while also being safe for food<br />

contact. Being self-adhesive<br />

or pressure sensitive, once<br />

contact is made with the<br />

carton; the patch is stuck<br />

down instantly, so there is no<br />

“drying time” slowing down<br />

the process.<br />

FastPatch runs on the<br />

company’s FastPaQ labeller<br />

range at up to 375 packs a<br />

minute.<br />

The company has been<br />

developing and perfecting<br />

this system for a year and it<br />

follows an enquiry from a<br />

carton company who wanted<br />

to window patch cartons at<br />

up to 300 a minute. The<br />

system can use 50 or 70<br />

micron PET, acetate and<br />

LDPE materials in sizes up<br />

to a standard pizza box.<br />

“Extensive ‘poke’ tests have<br />

been carried out to ensure<br />

the materials work, and that<br />

they won’t allow product<br />

damage,” says Donaldson.<br />

Carton companies are<br />

invited to conduct trials to<br />

see if this window patch<br />

option answers their<br />

particular product needs.<br />

Half year sees<br />

record sales<br />

Fortress Technology<br />

reported having a very busy<br />

show as the company<br />

celebrates being on target to<br />

have its best ever year since<br />

the organisation’s inception<br />

in 1996.<br />

According to half year<br />

sales figures just released,<br />

compared to the same<br />

period last year, orders at<br />

the Banbury-based company<br />

are up by 57% for metal<br />

detector heads and by 25%<br />

for the Vector combined<br />

conveyor/metal detection<br />

system, which is proving<br />

popular with retailers.<br />

“We have strengthened<br />

our sales team over the past<br />

12 months, which has<br />

played an important part in<br />

the growth,” says Sarah<br />

Ketchin, managing director<br />

at Fortress. “Our customers<br />

seem to appreciate the fact<br />

we manufacture in Britain.”<br />

In addition, the company<br />

offers a ‘never obsolete’<br />

commitment, since its<br />

detectors can always be<br />

upgraded, regardless of<br />

their age.<br />

Strategic partnerships<br />

boost wrapping offer<br />

This Arctic horizontal flow wrapper is<br />

designed for fresh products and comes<br />

with complete modified atmosphere for<br />

extended shelf life<br />

“We wanted to present our<br />

complete offer at the show<br />

and the reaction from visitors<br />

has been very positive,” says<br />

managing director of Ulma<br />

Packaging Derek Paterson.<br />

“We’ve been very pleased<br />

with the quantity and quality<br />

of enquiries.”<br />

The company demonstrated<br />

its ability to offer line solutions<br />

rather than single items of<br />

machinery by offering<br />

automation options to take<br />

product into and out of the<br />

packaging machines on<br />

display. Working with strategic<br />

partners such as Rama is key<br />

to this policy.<br />

On the stand, an Arctic<br />

horizontal flow wrapper with<br />

an integrated case packer<br />

from Rama demonstrated<br />

shelf ready packaging for the<br />

first time. This robust, high<br />

speed modified atmosphere<br />

wrapper handles a variety of<br />

films including shrink and<br />

barrier and offers further<br />

options such as easy-open<br />

and resealable features.<br />

A full range of infeeds and<br />

auto infeeds can be included<br />

which meets a wide range of<br />

applications in the meat,<br />

poultry and bakery markets,<br />

for instance. In operation, an<br />

elliptical high speed jaw action<br />

provides for complete sealing<br />

flexibility, while the machine’s<br />

multi servo motor specification<br />

provides for reliability and<br />

minimum maintenance.<br />

An easy to use HMI on this<br />

all-stainless steel machine<br />

gives flexibility in operation<br />

as well as allowing for easy<br />

set up.<br />

And this is all backed by a<br />

complete UK parts and<br />

Kawasaki Robotics<br />

demonstrated how an area<br />

not much larger than two<br />

Gathering momentum<br />

but progress still slow<br />

Despite an 82% increase between 2011<br />

and 2012, the rate of adoption of robotic<br />

automation in the UK continues to lag<br />

significantly behind that of our global<br />

industrial competitors. Although the annual<br />

sales of industrial robots for 2012<br />

exceeded those from any other year to<br />

date, it was the automotive industry and<br />

automotive components that were the<br />

main drivers once again.<br />

“While this is good news, we are<br />

witnessing only a modest upward trend<br />

over the last few in the uptake of automation<br />

and robotics across other sectors,” warns<br />

Mike Wilson, BARA chairman.<br />

Aside from the major issue of access to<br />

funding, one of the other key reasons for<br />

sluggish uptake is the perceived cost and<br />

complexity of installing and integrating a<br />

robot into a production line.<br />

Prohibitive<br />

Evidence for this comes from Grant Collier,<br />

head of marketing at the PPMA Group,<br />

who recently stated that: “If the UK is to<br />

remain competitive on the global stage, it is<br />

essential that companies adopt the latest<br />

technology available. However, they often<br />

find that the capital cost of establishing an<br />

automated facility can be prohibitive.”<br />

During 2012, BARA’s Automating<br />

Manufacturing programme continued to<br />

provide advice to companies considering<br />

investment in automation, while in a<br />

speech by George Osborne, the<br />

government also recognised robotics as<br />

one of the eight key technology areas for<br />

the future prosperity of the UK.<br />

Challenge<br />

“The challenge for this year is to build on<br />

this platform and continue the<br />

development of robotics in the UK, both for<br />

industrial and service applications,” says<br />

Wilson. “The good news is that the<br />

Automating Manufacturing Programme,<br />

which provides a significant stimulus to the<br />

adoption of automation by companies<br />

outside the automotive sector, has recently<br />

been extended until September <strong>2013</strong>.<br />

Already a great success, the programme<br />

has so far attracted 359 applications from<br />

UK manufacturers keen to find out how<br />

automation can improve efficiencies within<br />

their business. More than 70 companies<br />

have now reached the intervention stage,<br />

with a large percentage of these expected<br />

to adopt automation in the near future.<br />

“It’s particularly encouraging that 35% of<br />

applicants have come from the food<br />

sector, which has been traditionally slow to<br />

automation, in part due to short term<br />

contracts from supermarkets,” says Collier.<br />

At the current time, the UK is a ‘vicious<br />

circle’, where the lack of a large<br />

automation base, coupled with a much<br />

weakened supply chain for major<br />

industries, means that the strength and<br />

expertise is not available to develop the<br />

technology, says ABB. This is being further<br />

compounded by a chronic shortage of<br />

science, technology, engineering and<br />

mathematics (STEM) graduates, which is<br />

severely limiting the flow of new talent into<br />

the UK manufacturing sector.<br />

Fortunately, it seems the problem is not<br />

insurmountable. Indeed, there are already<br />

signs of different companies coming up<br />

with their own solutions, many of which<br />

are demonstrated in the next few pages.<br />

Developments<br />

These developments, coupled with<br />

evidence from applications worldwide,<br />

means that robotic automation undoubtedly<br />

offers a promising future for those bold<br />

enough to grasp the nettle.<br />

special feature<br />

automation, robotics and vision systems<br />

See, measure and believe<br />

Although machine vision has an important role to play in robot guidance, one of its towering strengths,<br />

whether used on the end of a robot or in a fixed position, is its ability to make dimensional measurements as<br />

part of the quality control process in both high volume and low volume manufacturing, says the UKIVA<br />

Quantifiable measurements that can be<br />

obtained from an image include angles,<br />

distances, centre of mass, area and<br />

circular fit, to name but a few. Before we<br />

take a look at some real-world samples,<br />

it is worth understanding a little about<br />

the factors that affect the entire<br />

measurement process.<br />

Measurements need to be both<br />

accurate (close to the true value) and<br />

repeatable. One is no good without the<br />

other, as can be seen in Figure 1.<br />

Measurements are only as good as the<br />

information that can be extracted from<br />

the image, so getting good image quality<br />

is of paramount importance. Image<br />

quality is dependent on a number of<br />

factors including the camera, optics,<br />

illumination and object positioning. A key<br />

requirement is to produce an image<br />

where the features to be measured have<br />

a good contrast with the background.<br />

A surprising amount of machine vision<br />

systems use monochrome cameras,<br />

since careful selection of illumination<br />

type, angle and wavelength, can produce<br />

the required images for measurement,<br />

even if the human eye would<br />

automatically rely on the colour content of<br />

Figure 1. Accuracy and precision in<br />

measurements is vital to success<br />

Figure 2. Caps on PET bottles – vision measurement is popular for filling beverages<br />

the image. A decisive factor in specifying<br />

the illumination for an application is to<br />

ensure that any changes in the ambient<br />

lighting doesn’t change the image<br />

produced by the camera and therefore<br />

the measurement results.<br />

There are some applications where<br />

colours need to be accurately measured<br />

or differentiated, of course, such as in<br />

food grading, cabling in the electronics<br />

and other industries, packaging<br />

inspection etc so a colour camera is<br />

needed. The choice of lenses in the<br />

vision system is important since the lens<br />

determines the magnification of the<br />

image, and poor lens quality can lead to<br />

distortions in the image and therefore<br />

inaccurate measurements.<br />

This whistle-stop tour of machine<br />

vision parameters that affect<br />

measurements wouldn’t be complete<br />

without considering speed. Many items<br />

are measured as they move along a<br />

conveyor belt, or production line, so the<br />

speed with which the image can be<br />

acquired, processed, measured and a<br />

decision made to accept or reject the<br />

product is also vitally important. More<br />

recent technological developments in the<br />

world of vision has meant that it is now<br />

also possible to make realtime 3D<br />

measurements using laser triangulation<br />

techniques thereby greatly extending the<br />

scope of vision capabilities.<br />

Literally thousands of real world<br />

measurements are regularly carried out in<br />

packaging applications, from raw<br />

materials through to the final product.<br />

Figure 4. Measurement of foil seals in<br />

injection moulded caps<br />

Some of these measurements are made<br />

under really challenging conditions and<br />

frequently need to be made at high<br />

speed. Consider, for example, real-time<br />

measurement of laser machined holes in<br />

packaging film used in the food industry.<br />

Perfectly perforated plastic packaging<br />

films are proven to prolong the shelf-life<br />

of fresh goods. The vision system<br />

needs to find and measure holes from<br />

30 – 120 µm (approximately the diameter<br />

material which is travelling at 350m/min.<br />

Vision measurement is also very<br />

popular in beverage filling for the<br />

monitoring of plastic screw caps on PET<br />

bottles. After several washes in<br />

preparation for filling, PET bottles can<br />

exhibit tolerances in height of several<br />

millimeters. In addition, any shrinkage is<br />

not necessarily symmetrical due to<br />

thermal load in the washing plants. This<br />

means that skewing can occur to a<br />

certain extent on the bottle neck or the<br />

entire bottle (Figure 2). Machine vision<br />

can be used to capture and measure the<br />

degree of tilt (Figure 3) and track the<br />

height of the cap relative to the support<br />

ring in the neck area of the bottle, even<br />

at throughputs of 30,000 to 40,000<br />

bottles per hour.<br />

an air-tight<br />

Machine<br />

vision can<br />

be used to<br />

inspect the<br />

caps during<br />

production<br />

to check for<br />

‘short shot’,<br />

when not<br />

enough<br />

plastic is<br />

injected into<br />

the mould, ‘flashing’ when too much<br />

plastic is injected, and that the foil insert<br />

is present within the cap and placed<br />

correctly with no folds, creases or<br />

damage (Figure 4). This type of cap can<br />

also be inspected by machine vision on<br />

the filling line since it is important for an<br />

effective seal that the cap is correctly<br />

aligned and not ‘cross-threaded’ or<br />

crooked to ensure there is sufficient<br />

downward pressure on the seal from<br />

the cap for the inductive heater<br />

(Figure 5).<br />

Vision measurements are also used<br />

extensively in the baking industry during<br />

the production of product such as pizza,<br />

pies, bread, pasties, cakes and biscuits.<br />

Typical parameters being checked are<br />

shape, size, edge defects and thickness.<br />

A good example is the control of the size,<br />

quality and even weight of sandwich<br />

biscuits, produced by combining two<br />

biscuits with a fondant filling such as<br />

chocolate. Each side of the biscuit needs<br />

to be measured to calculate how much<br />

filling is required to make the 'sandwich<br />

biscuit' the correct overall height.<br />

Filling is expensive in comparison to<br />

biscuit costs so it is important to use the<br />

minimum needed for the correct overall<br />

height. Cameras are<br />

used to grab images<br />

of the biscuits from<br />

above to measure the<br />

length and width.<br />

An additional camera<br />

is used with laser<br />

triangulation to<br />

reconstruct a 3D<br />

image and get<br />

accurate height<br />

measurements. All<br />

this is done on 30<br />

rows of cooked<br />

biscuits with 120 biscuits per row (3600 in<br />

total) passing the inspection position<br />

each minute. Using this procedure,<br />

accuracies of ± 0.17 mm can be achieved<br />

for length, width and thickness<br />

measurement.<br />

special feature<br />

automation, robotics, and vision systems<br />

Enabling flexible working<br />

The move away from fixed tooling in robotics systems has been facilitated by the developments in vision<br />

technology. Machinery Update talked to Cognex about this and other advances in colour options and<br />

barcode reading<br />

“Guiding robots with machine vision is an<br />

enabling technology for flexible<br />

manufacturing which allows production<br />

lines to readily accommodate product<br />

changes,” says Stephen Makepeace-<br />

Warne, senior sales engineer at Cognex<br />

UK. In addition to locating parts for pickand-place<br />

or guiding a robot to assemble<br />

components, machine vision can also<br />

inspect, measure, and read linear<br />

barcodes, and Data Matrix codes as<br />

products are being handled or assembled.<br />

“One of the key drivers in this area is that<br />

manufacturers of all kinds of goods want to<br />

remove repetitive actions from their<br />

production lines to eliminate RSI,” says<br />

Makepeace-Warne. Manufacturers of<br />

robots also see vision as crucial to their<br />

businesses, he says.<br />

Things have certainly moved on in the<br />

sector as ten years ago, robots generally<br />

picked from one position whereas in the<br />

last five years, robots have been detecting,<br />

picking and also orienting. One driver in this<br />

area has been the increased use of shelf<br />

ready packaging in supermarkets. As this<br />

means that a shelf stacker doesn’t touch<br />

the products, they need to be facing the<br />

right way as they go into the box to ensure<br />

they are presented in the best light in store.<br />

This can also include products packed in<br />

clear plastic film as Cognex has recently<br />

worked on an application where 6 or 8<br />

bottle packs of water had to have their front<br />

Bar code scanner problems during Everards<br />

kegging process, where reusable kegs are filled<br />

with beer, have been improved substantially<br />

labels facing outwards, to ensure they<br />

were always facing front, whatever way<br />

they were placed on the shelf.<br />

“We have also seen increased sales to<br />

the food industry, in recent times, as they<br />

wish to ensure full traceability on their<br />

products with track and trace technology,”<br />

he says. Colour systems are also being<br />

taken up more and more, too.<br />

Earlier this year the company introduced<br />

the In-Sight 7010C, an entry-level colour<br />

vision systems that can distinguish parts by<br />

colour. The system features 24-bit colour<br />

resolution that accurately identifies<br />

16 million colour variations – more than the<br />

human eye can detect.<br />

The entry-level colour vision system was introduced earlier this year by Cognex UK<br />

Along with the In-Sight 7010C, Cognex<br />

also introduced three additional colour<br />

models – the 7200C, 7400C and 7402C.<br />

These systems solve more complex<br />

applications involving logic or colour<br />

composition, as well as those requiring<br />

higher resolution or faster execution.<br />

“The key thing in barcode readers is the<br />

read rates,” says Makepeace-Warne, and<br />

this was certainly the case at Everards<br />

Brewery who was experiencing bar code<br />

scanner problems during its ‘kegging<br />

process’, where reusable metal kegs are<br />

filled with beer. The new empty kegs have<br />

I-D barcode labels applied and are<br />

weighed to establish the ‘tare weight’,<br />

which varies slightly for each keg. The keg<br />

is scanned and the tare weight of the new<br />

keg is recorded on a database.<br />

During the kegging process, the filled<br />

keg is transported down a line to a<br />

weighing station. The keg is scanned to<br />

identify the keg from a database, and then<br />

weighed in order to calculate the exact<br />

weight of beer in each keg.<br />

Previously Everards was using a laser<br />

scanner to read the I-D barcodes,<br />

however due to the amount of damage<br />

to the barcode labels and the scanner it<br />

was using it was only achieving a<br />

60 - 65% success rate of barcodes being<br />

read correctly.<br />

A new system was developed for<br />

Everards to identify and weigh the kegs<br />

during production. This system was based<br />

on Procon software interfacing with the keg<br />

weigher combined with the DataMan 500<br />

industrial I-D reader. The system scans<br />

each filled keg as it passes on a conveyor.<br />

The keg is identified by its barcode to<br />

identify its tare weight, the keg is then<br />

weighed and the information is<br />

communicated to the keg weigh software<br />

to capture the filled weight of the keg.<br />

The DataMan 500 now achieves 98%<br />

read rates – a huge increase on its laser<br />

predecessor.<br />

Make robot uptake easy<br />

When it comes to applications such as<br />

picking, packing and palletising, any<br />

concerns about complexity of installation<br />

and integration should be more than<br />

assuaged by recent developments from<br />

ABB, which has introduced two new<br />

modular concepts which help to simplify<br />

the process of adding, operating and<br />

upgrading a robot in packing and<br />

palletising applications.<br />

The PalletPack 460 incorporates an<br />

all-ABB products package including an<br />

IRB 460 palletising robot, a Flex-Gripper,<br />

an ABB PLC, a Jokab Safety PLC, support<br />

software, user documentation and a<br />

FlexPendant that features a graphical<br />

HMI. The IRB 460 robot, the fastest of its<br />

kind says ABB, is a four-axis robot with a<br />

reach of 2.4 metres and a 110-kg capacity.<br />

The robot’s small footprint makes it ideal<br />

for integration into existing packing lines,<br />

says ABB.<br />

The FlexGripper<br />

Clamp is a<br />

plug-and-play<br />

extension<br />

Designed to make robotic end-of-line<br />

box and palletising solutions more<br />

accessible and easier to use, the<br />

PalletPack 460 improves ease of use for<br />

integrators and lowers the hurdle to entry<br />

into automation. Pre-engineered,<br />

integrated hardware with full<br />

documentation helps to lower the cost<br />

and engineering time associated with<br />

integration.<br />

Programming the robot is also made<br />

simple by the inclusion of a program<br />

wizard. Guiding the user through a<br />

step-by-step set-up process, the program<br />

wizard eliminates the need to learn robot<br />

programming in<br />

order to install a<br />

robot cell.<br />

This same<br />

approach is<br />

mirrored in<br />

ABB’s<br />

RacerPack, a<br />

fully integrated<br />

robotics packing<br />

system.<br />

RacerPack is<br />

designed for<br />

high capacity<br />

collating, picking<br />

and placing of products onto trays, cartons<br />

or feeding other machinery.<br />

A key feature of the RacerPack is its fast<br />

and easy integration into existing or new<br />

lines. Its Advanced Indexed Conveyor<br />

Control tracking feature enables high<br />

accuracy picking and packing from<br />

indexed conveyors, at speeds of up to 400<br />

products per minute.<br />

Built around the IRB 360 FlexPicker,<br />

the RacerPack provides a highly flexible<br />

picking and packing solution. The use of<br />

vacuum cups enables almost any kind of<br />

product to be picked and placed, whilst its<br />

user friendly HMI with recipe handling<br />

enables production changeovers to be<br />

made by a single person in under<br />

10 minutes.<br />

Featuring a hygienic modular design, the<br />

RacerPack can be scaled up to meet<br />

increased customer demands if required,<br />

providing companies with a fast and<br />

flexible production solution.<br />

Developments such as these could play<br />

a vital role in helping to further boost the<br />

uptake of robotic automation throughout<br />

says ABB.<br />

For robotic<br />

a step too far,” explains Ian Schofield,<br />

sales manager at CKF Systems. “Over<br />

the past 12 months, CKF has been<br />

examining ways to address their concerns<br />

An easy-to-use colour touchscreen interface ensures simple operation<br />

Vision system delivers<br />

vital FMD code checks<br />

Travtec has introduced a new vision system into its<br />

pharmaceutical coding equipment portfolio.<br />

The Lixis PVS is a high-end OCR/OCV imaging system that<br />

offers reliability, accuracy and speed for a wide variety of<br />

inspection requirements throughout the packaging process.<br />

In particular, it provides effective monitoring to ensure that<br />

coding operations are meeting the requirements of the<br />

forthcoming EC Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD).<br />

It can carry out a variety of quality checks as the character<br />

recognition software reads both pre-printed and in-line printing<br />

and it automatically detects shift or rotation variations. Colour<br />

verification can also be specified.<br />

All types of barcodes can be monitored including standard<br />

formats (EAN, Code 128), pharmaceutical industry variants<br />

such as Pharmacode, and Datamatrix and 1D and 2D codes.<br />

In addition, the system can be programmed to check the<br />

accuracy of logos and artwork and for the presence and position<br />

of labels, caps and other items.<br />

An easy-to-use colour touchscreen interface, including<br />

on-screen help and interactive tutorial, ensures fast set up and<br />

simple day-to-day operation. An unlimited number of pre-set<br />

patterns and character details can be stored in the memory for<br />

fast changeovers, and detailed production reports and defective<br />

images can be outputted for process analysis.<br />

The Lixis PVS is easy to integrate into existing production<br />

equipment including cartoners, leaflet folders, labelling<br />

machines, blistering machines, carton codifiers and tube fillers.<br />

Up to 800 images per minute can be verified depending on the<br />

application.<br />

The new vision system joins Travtec’s proven range of<br />

pharmaceutical coding equipment including the Wolke m600<br />

thermal inkjet printer, and the Pharmacarton Elite online and<br />

TR-760-TT offline carton feeders, meaning the company can<br />

thinking of introducing automation, which<br />

will often be the basis of manufacturing<br />

efficiency for the next decade, this is<br />

obviously very much more important.”<br />

So says Rod Mitchell, technical director<br />

of Notio Design, a company that<br />

specialises in the design and build of<br />

small-scale automation. “Getting the<br />

design right is by far the most critical<br />

element in the success of the project,”<br />

he says. He also believes that design<br />

should be a treated as a broad<br />

discipline, covering more than just<br />

delivering the essential manufacturing<br />

drawings.<br />

budget available. The company felt that a<br />

simpler solution should be possible but<br />

that this would need careful design.<br />

“By adopting a design led approach to<br />

the problem we were able to configure a<br />

cost effective solution based on a<br />

multifunctional robot gripper that was well<br />

within their budget,” says Mitchell.<br />

automation, robotics and vision systems<br />

Technology combines<br />

for research advances<br />

A British company has harnessed<br />

the precision of robots, flexibility<br />

of machine vision and powerful<br />

laboratory automation software to<br />

push forward research into stem<br />

cells, pharmaceuticals,<br />

biotechnology and genomics.<br />

paa (Peak Analysis &<br />

Automation) in conjunction with<br />

the Wellcome Trust Sanger<br />

Institute has developed<br />

automate.it pixcell, a flexible<br />

robotic system for precise<br />

detection, isolation and picking of<br />

part or whole stem cell colonies<br />

from Petri dishes. It then<br />

transfers the colonies to<br />

mircotiter plates ready for further<br />

development.<br />

The system consists of a very<br />

high precision robot, originally<br />

developed for use in the<br />

semiconductor industry, a high<br />

resolution camera, an illumination<br />

system and a unique picking<br />

head. The whole system is<br />

enclosed within a Class II<br />

certified cabinet, ensuring sterility.<br />

The system ensures gentle handling of the<br />

stem cell colonies, improving the likelihood of<br />

them growing and thriving. It also frees up<br />

researchers from repetitive picking tasks so that<br />

they can concentrate on other high value<br />

activities. It operates at a level of performance<br />

equal to or better than trained staff, picking up to<br />

96 colonies in 15 minutes.<br />

The robot at the heart of the pixcell is the<br />

Mitsubishi Electric RP-Series which was<br />

designed specifically for micro-handling. It<br />

operates with a placement accuracy of 0.005mm<br />

or one-tenth the width of a human hair, with a<br />

picking cycle time of less than 0.5 seconds.<br />

This compact robot is usually used for<br />

precision manufacturing purposes, such as<br />

assembling watches, mobile phones and<br />

hearing aids or for populating printed circuit<br />

boards with semiconductors. However it is<br />

designed to be flexible and once fitted with a<br />

suitable working head, it can be used in an<br />

almost infinite range of micro-positioning<br />

applications, says the company.<br />

The PalletPack 460<br />

package includes the new<br />

IRB 460 robot<br />

The compact robot, once fitted with a suitalbe working head, can be<br />

used in an almost infinite range of micro-positioning applications<br />

In use, a Petri dish is placed on the automate.it<br />

pixcell instrument picking plate and is quickly<br />

scanned by the camera, which is traversed over<br />

the dish by the robot arm. An image analysing<br />

algorithm then identifies cell colonies based on<br />

their morphology. The robot then combines X<br />

and Y movements to place the picking head<br />

adjacent to a colony, then lowers the head<br />

through a layer of buffer liquid until it touches the<br />

bottom of the dish. A microscopic precise<br />

sideways motion then scoops the colony into the<br />

head. The freed colony is drawn into the picking<br />

head along with a tiny drop of the buffer. This<br />

unique procedure reduces the risk of damage to<br />

the cells to a minimal level ensuring their viability.<br />

With another rapid sequence of robot moves,<br />

the head is lifted clear and the robot transfers the<br />

colony to a waiting microplate.<br />

The final step of the process is to pass the<br />

head through a cleaning station so that it is<br />

ready for its next pick.<br />

Investing in tasty plans<br />

Producer of international foods for supermarkets and pub groups, The Authentic Food Company contacted<br />

PPMA Awards finalists CKF Systems to help with its ambitious growth plans<br />

In 2010, The Authentic Food Company<br />

(TAFC) celebrated 25 years in business with<br />

an ambitious multi-million pound five year<br />

growth plan based on a three phase<br />

investment programme. In partnership with<br />

automation and robotics specialists CKF<br />

Systems, phase one is now fully operational<br />

and the impact has been immediate.<br />

The relationship with CKF began in<br />

2000 when TAFC moved to premises in<br />

Sharston, Manchester and commissioned<br />

the company to design and install a<br />

manual packing line to accommodate<br />

frozen products.<br />

“In the 12 years we have worked with<br />

CKF we have formed an excellent working<br />

partnership,” explains Mike Rimmer, group<br />

engineering manager at TAFC. “They are<br />

sympathetic to our business and understand<br />

how we operate so it was an easy decision<br />

to invite them to work with us on this project.”<br />

To ensure no disruption to production,<br />

the first phase was scheduled to take place<br />

during the Christmas shutdown, a window<br />

of just eight days.<br />

TAFC removed a series of internal walls<br />

to increase the size of the existing packing<br />

hall and accommodate the third packing<br />

line. In planning for later phases, it was<br />

essential that all three packing lines would<br />

terminate in a central location adjacent to<br />

the area for palletising. The two existing<br />

lines were reconfigured by CKF to achieve<br />

the overall layout objectives and create<br />

space for the additional line which required<br />

The Authentic Food Company has collaborated<br />

with leading Cantonese restaurants<br />

the introduction of two new spiral<br />

conveyors at the outfeed of the freezer to<br />

de-elevate the products within the<br />

minimum floor area.<br />

Each line incorporated line inspections,<br />

manual packing stations, case closing,<br />

coding stations and stackdown facilities.<br />

The third line utilised another new<br />

de-elevating spiral conveyor and<br />

incorporated the same features as the<br />

existing lines plus a bypass arrangement<br />

to a sleeving machine.<br />

The manual packing stations on all three<br />

lines were designed to accommodate initial<br />

hand packing needs and to allow ease of<br />

replacement with planned future auto<br />

case/carton loading machines i.e. identical<br />

footprints. A new high level gantry was<br />

designed and installed at the outfeeds of<br />

the two spiral freezers to allow ease of<br />

access for production, hygiene and<br />

maintenance purposes.<br />

CKF assumed full responsibility from<br />

The new system has improved efficiency and reduced wastage, while the enhanced<br />

ergonomics have had a positive impact on the Lean programme at TAFC<br />

initial layout design through manufacture,<br />

installation and commissioning, including<br />

associated electrical control systems. The<br />

programme was completed on time.<br />

“The complexities of the project meant<br />

that the shutdown period offered almost no<br />

margin for error,” continues Mike Rimmer.<br />

“Thankfully, with CKF’s support the project<br />

was completed to plan and when our<br />

workforce returned for the New Year we<br />

were operational. The new system has had<br />

a positive impact across almost every<br />

aspect of our business.”<br />

By expanding from two to three lines,<br />

TAFC has increased its capacity and<br />

added flexibility. A 20% increase in<br />

production has enabled the company to<br />

meet the growing demand for its meals,<br />

explore new opportunities and develop<br />

new ventures. One such example is the<br />

recent collaboration with Yu and You, a<br />

leading Cantonese Restaurant that won<br />

Gordon Ramsay’s ‘Best Chinese<br />

Restaurant’ in the UK 2010.<br />

“Our work force has embraced the<br />

changes,” enthuses Rimmer.<br />

“The new system has improved<br />

efficiency and reduced wastage, while the<br />

enhanced ergonomics have had a direct<br />

and positive impact upon our Lean<br />

programme which is designed to improve<br />

quality of all process outputs and at the<br />

heart of everything we do.”<br />

For a company that takes such pride in<br />

the wellbeing of its employees, the<br />

improvements in the working environment<br />

have been warmly welcomed. Equally as<br />

rewarding is a reduction in the company’s<br />

carbon footprint with energy consumption<br />

down by about 10%.<br />

“With such huge growth plans, it was<br />

imperative that the first phase was<br />

successfully implemented,” concludes<br />

Rimmer. “It is now fully operational and in<br />

line with our expectations.<br />

“And with the support of CKF we shall<br />

shortly be embarking on the next phase,”<br />

he says.<br />

Vision system keeps<br />

fashion on the move<br />

For leading UK fashion and home goods<br />

retailer JD Williams, warehouse automation<br />

is mission-critical and must remain as<br />

versatile, efficient and trouble-free as<br />

possible. To ensure goods are located and<br />

picked reliably, Sick UK has successfully<br />

trialled vision camera technology which is<br />

set to be integrated into existing warehouse<br />

systems to achieve new levels of reliability<br />

and precision.<br />

The automated warehouse at<br />

JD Williams’ distribution centre at Shaw,<br />

near Oldham is the primary Manchester<br />

Hub and was purpose built in 1998. It<br />

contains self-standing racking for some<br />

400,000 usable storage locations, so<br />

having a totally consistent and reliable<br />

mechanism for finding goods is crucial to<br />

effective operation.<br />

Two Sick IP30 vision cameras provide accurate<br />

positioning for the upper and lower automatic<br />

extending arms picking mechanisms<br />

“We have developed the pick and place<br />

system as our needs have grown over<br />

the past 14 years,” explains Ron Rutter,<br />

electrical engineering technical manager<br />

for the Shaw facility. “We know it inside<br />

out and what it is capable of achieving<br />

and so we were able to work closely with<br />

vision specialists from Sick to develop a<br />

solution that provided a means of<br />

The compact Sick IP30 vision camera has integral white light LEDs for target illumination<br />

upgrading our current systems and<br />

improving operating performance.<br />

“Following successful trials of the Sick<br />

Inspector P30 vision camera on one of<br />

the hi-bay aisles, we have been greatly<br />

encouraged by the results achieved and<br />

will be replacing the existing laser-based<br />

recognition systems as they need to be<br />

upgraded,” he says.<br />

Although it initially required a higher<br />

investment than other options, the<br />

Inspector P30 has proved its value in<br />

speed, reliability and availability as it<br />

enables the automated crane system to<br />

pick and place more quickly, saving<br />

typically 10 seconds per pick (potentially<br />

15% extra picking cycles per hour).<br />

The solution has also reduced<br />

maintenance costs and decreased the<br />

amount of downtime necessary.<br />

In the hi-bay storage facility, the<br />

80 metre high racking is accessed by<br />

automatically operated and centrally<br />

controlled cranes which run along each of<br />

32 aisles. Each crane runs horizontally<br />

on a central rail along a 60 metre aisle at<br />

up to 3.5 metres a second and reaches<br />

vertically on a chain drive from one metre<br />

from the floor to roof height.<br />

The goods, packed in cardboard<br />

cartons (up to approximately 30cm wide,<br />

40cm high and 62cm deep) are stored on<br />

heavy plastic trays. The trays are<br />

arranged in twos in each opening and<br />

picked and placed by the crane on either<br />

side of the aisle.<br />

Key to the effective operation of the<br />

whole hi-bay storage is that the unique<br />

position of every tray and barcode<br />

identified carton is recorded on the<br />

Warehouse Management System and on<br />

the PLC which operates the system on<br />

each aisle, as well as being backed up by<br />

the central server.<br />

Crane accuracy<br />

Fed positioning data by the PLC, the<br />

crane must align itself at high speed to<br />

within 2mm in two dimensions. If this<br />

accuracy is not achieved, the engaging lugs<br />

could miss the trays or even run the danger<br />

of tipping the tray and spilling the goods.<br />

The self standing racking is not an<br />

entirely rigid target and is subject to<br />

flexibility of movement, expansion and<br />

other stresses and so the system must<br />

be able to adjust itself to the target with<br />

both macro and micro movements.<br />

A laser sensing system has been in<br />

operation at the warehouse for about<br />

14 years and every rack opening has a<br />

white, L-shaped metal marker that<br />

contrasts with the dark blue background<br />

so that the lasers can use the markers to<br />

special feature<br />

automation, robotics and vision systems<br />

detect the position of the crane in a<br />

vertical and horizontal alignment. Each of<br />

the four lasers and sensors has to be fully<br />

functional to achieve the required<br />

positioning, so a fault in one prevents the<br />

operation of the whole crane.<br />

The laser set up also requires a certain<br />

amount of optical filtering and masking to<br />

ensure that the sensors are not picking<br />

up stray reflections. As the laser system<br />

has got older, replacement models<br />

are more powerful and sensors more<br />

sensitive so that the optical filtering to<br />

achieve the same level of accurate<br />

positioning is practically impossible.<br />

The Sick Inspector P30 vision<br />

camera is part of a range of vision<br />

cameras designed specifically for<br />

high-speed positioning, picking and<br />

location in factory environments. The<br />

vision camera is used as a superior<br />

positioning sensor as it can detect<br />

complex shapes.<br />

adjustments to be made prior to picking or<br />

placing the tray.”<br />

The crane is able to move to the final<br />

position more rapidly with less final micro<br />

adjustments because the P30 is able to<br />

recognise the white metal marker from<br />

about 40cm away and guide the<br />

automated crane directly to the right<br />

position.<br />

The lower amount of movement and<br />

more idle time also means there is far<br />

less wear and tear on the mechanical<br />

mechanisms, requiring less maintenance<br />

and less adjustment or re-alignment,<br />

so operating costs have been<br />

satisfactorily low.<br />

Inspecting fresh foods<br />

Producers of both large and small<br />

packaged fresh food products such as<br />

meat, poultry, fish and dairy can now<br />

benefit from high speed, high precision<br />

product package and label inspection with<br />

CLS Series vision inspection technology<br />

from Mettler-Toledo CI-Vision.<br />

Indeed, four CLS Series systems have<br />

just been sold to a manufacturer in the<br />

dairy industry for the inspection of packs<br />

of hard cheese. The machines are<br />

examining the label and seal integrity to<br />

ensure there is no product trapped in the<br />

packaging seal.<br />

The machine inspects labelled packs of<br />

varying widths and heights<br />

The series comprises three machine<br />

sizes developed to inspect labelled packs<br />

of varying widths and heights for the<br />

correct best before date, lot number and<br />

barcodes at high throughput rates. With<br />

their robust designs optimised for harsh<br />

operating conditions, technologies in the<br />

CLS Series are ideal for flat-packed<br />

fresh food products, ensuring they<br />

comply with retailer labelling guidelines<br />

and regulations.<br />

chain.<br />

In operation, cameras automatically<br />

adjust position to facilitate set up of each<br />

system for examination of products<br />

ranging from 10 to 200mm in height.<br />

This, says Mettler, boosts flexibility for<br />

ensured the systems are robust and easy<br />

to clean, but also flexible, enabling<br />

manufacturers to respond quickly to<br />

changes in market demand,” says Reisbig.<br />

Four machines have recently been installed to<br />

Foam cutting first<br />

Bäumer has introduced an industrial robot<br />

used as a handling system in a foam cutting<br />

process for the first time.<br />

Called, the B-Bot, it stands between two<br />

contour cutting machines arranged in parallel,<br />

grips and transports the sheets, waste strips<br />

or cut-offs. Controls of the robot and the<br />

vertical and horizontal CNC cutting machine<br />

are interconnected to produce a fully<br />

automatic process. In this application, the<br />

B-Bot uses a needle gripper system as its tool.<br />

Importantly, the robot’s tool and<br />

programming can be specially adapted by<br />

Bäumer to suit specific applications or<br />

combinations with various other cutting<br />

machines, too.<br />

In operation, sheets are cut from a single<br />

block on the horizontal contour cutting<br />

machine OFS-H Twincut. The robot then picks<br />

up the sheets individually and lays them,<br />

perfectly aligned, on the vertical contour<br />

cutting machine OFS – VS. Sheets are then<br />

trimmed before the B-Bot grips the waste<br />

strips and disposes of them.<br />

The company says that its new robot offers<br />

Working in conjunction with vision specialists<br />

Image House, RA Rodriguez is now able to<br />

supply its flexible robot arm as an intelligent,<br />

Universal Robot with vision is a standard,<br />

off the shelf package from RA Rodriguez that<br />

comprises all the elements needed for the<br />

application – robotic arm, appropriate gripper,<br />

The B-Bot industrial robot from Bäumer is used in<br />

the foam cutting process for the first time<br />

many advantages in comparison with<br />

conventional handling systems. These include<br />

stacked edges being perfectly aligned, so<br />

vertical contour cuts produce little waste; it<br />

Off the shelf pick & place<br />

Equipment manufacturer and systems<br />

integrator Pacepacker Services has<br />

expanded its product portfolio to include<br />

Festo’s range of Mechatronics pick and<br />

place systems. This range of pick and<br />

place components are available much<br />

quicker and more cost effectively than<br />

bespoke options as they can be supplied<br />

as an off the shelf option.<br />

Pacepacker is an integrator for a<br />

number of leading robotic equipment<br />

manufacturers with applications ranging<br />

from one to six axes with pick-up devices<br />

for handling one or multiple products at a<br />

time. The Mechatronics range comprises<br />

pneumatic, electrical, mechanical, control<br />

and sensory components, models and<br />

systems which can be configured to<br />

provide pick and place solutions to meet<br />

specific needs.<br />

Food industry specialist at Festo Lee<br />

Fletcher believes that this range fits well<br />

The H-Gantry is for high speed applications<br />

The Tripod can handle pick and place, small<br />

parts handling and loading installations<br />

with the modular approach demanded by<br />

end users across many sectors as well as<br />

taking solutions to the next level.<br />

“Pacepacker are ahead of the game in<br />

this respect and their attitude towards this<br />

technology is very enthusiastic,” he says.<br />

“Clearly there’s a gap in the market for<br />

integrating simple technology into an<br />

overall solution,” he tells Machinery<br />

Update. “It’s all about understanding what<br />

the challenges are.”<br />

The Mechatronics range includes the<br />

T Gantry, H Gantry and Tripod models<br />

and this intuitive technology can be<br />

integrated into other machinery and<br />

software very easily. All are low in<br />

vibration due to the reduced initial moving<br />

mass, precision tooth-belt drive<br />

arrangements and sophisticated<br />

controllers that also provide functionality.<br />

The T-Gantry is a continuous toothedbelt<br />

with a pitch slide module for fast<br />

picking, spreading and separating (at over<br />

90 packs a minute). Its corresponding<br />

control package ensures precise<br />

point-to-point or path-controlled motion in<br />

the vertical and horizontal plane.<br />

Meanwhile, the H-Gantry is the same<br />

as the T, but with an additional axis of<br />

movement to provide a 3D capability.<br />

Designed for handling items at up to<br />

70 picks a minute, it covers a rectangular<br />

3D working space.<br />

The Tripod is a high speed handling<br />

unit – it operates at up to 150 packs a<br />

minute – with functionality for free<br />

movement in 3D space. Its rigid pyramid<br />

structure requires less structural<br />

mounting, yet ensures optimum path and<br />

position accuracy with reduced vibration.<br />

Suitable for use with a camera system for<br />

position and rotary orientation sensing, it<br />

is ideal for pick and place, small parts<br />

handling and loading installations.<br />

Pacepacker can also offer its own<br />

DeltaPac pick and place robotic options.<br />

Robot valves<br />

save energy<br />

The SMC Energy Saving<br />

team has not only offered the<br />

flexible solutions required by<br />

Robotsnet Consulting to<br />

meet its robot’s multi-product<br />

handling challenge but has<br />

also delivered operating<br />

energy efficiencies too.<br />

To meet the increasing<br />

demand for robotic options,<br />

it has customised the next<br />

generation palletising robot.<br />

The four axis, electric servo<br />

driven robot achieves 20<br />

cycles for case palletising at<br />

160kg. It has been<br />

designed for carton box<br />

and glass automatic<br />

manipulation and so the<br />

handling of such contrasting<br />

materials required extra<br />

flexibility.<br />

The main objective of the<br />

SMC team was to reduce the<br />

consumption of compressed<br />

air to the minimum value and<br />

to achieve a non-switching<br />

operation when changing<br />

workpieces. It therefore used<br />

the SMC multi-stage vacuum<br />

ejector ZL series which<br />

consumes less compressed<br />

air than its standard vacuum<br />

ejector series. It also<br />

installed vacuum saving<br />

ZP2V valves in order to<br />

optimise the vacuum<br />

generation with no loss<br />

associated to inactive pads<br />

or those operating at<br />

irregular intervals.<br />

With the robot’s key<br />

feature being its high speed<br />

operation, the large flow<br />

version of the ZL vacuum<br />

ejector not only provided the<br />

required fast speed<br />

response but also 20% air<br />

consumption savings thanks<br />

to its three stage diffuser<br />

design which at the same<br />

time delivered an impressive<br />

250% increase in suction<br />

flow rate.<br />

Testing for USA exports<br />

Machinery manufacturers that want to export to the USA must gain the appropriate certification to ensure<br />

their equipment can be used without causing any problems for their customers, says Paul Laidler<br />

Those manufacturers that<br />

produce one-of-a-kind<br />

machinery for use in the USA,<br />

or end-users that are re-locating<br />

existing equipment to a new<br />

facility or have purchased used<br />

equipment or equipment without<br />

proper certification, must<br />

comply with local electrical<br />

safety requirements. If they<br />

don’t, many local jurisdictions<br />

will not allow such ‘unlabelled’<br />

equipment to be installed or<br />

used at manufacturing and<br />

commercial sites within their<br />

communities.<br />

Unlabelled<br />

Any manufacturer found using<br />

unlabelled equipment may be<br />

fined, or closed down, by the<br />

USA’s Occupational Health &<br />

Safety Authority, (OSHA), or<br />

simply be banned by local<br />

electrical inspectors from<br />

switching such equipment on.<br />

Also, users of non-compliant<br />

machinery put themselves at<br />

risk of liability-related lawsuits.<br />

But should machinery<br />

manufacturers do this through<br />

the Nationally Recognized<br />

Testing Laboratories (NRTL)<br />

certification or Field Labelling?<br />

In the USA, the NRTL<br />

programme is administered by<br />

OSHA’s Directorate of Technical<br />

Support and Emergency<br />

Management. NRTLs are<br />

private, third-party organisations<br />

recognised by OSHA as meeting<br />

the legal requirements in the 29<br />

CFR 1910.7 standard. In brief,<br />

these requirements cover the<br />

capability, control programmes,<br />

complete independence, and<br />

reporting and complaint<br />

handling procedures to test and<br />

certify specific types of products<br />

for workplace safety.<br />

NRTL’s field evaluation<br />

services include listing, labelling<br />

and National Electrical Code<br />

(NEC) inspections. The NEC is<br />

a set of minimum requirements<br />

for safety of wiring and electrical<br />

installations, covering the<br />

installation of conductors,<br />

electric equipment, signalling<br />

and communications conductors<br />

and equipment, and fibre optic<br />

cables.<br />

OSHA can accept products<br />

‘properly certified’ by a NRTL.<br />

‘Properly certified’ generally<br />

means: 1) the product is labelled<br />

or marked with the registered<br />

certification mark of the NRTL,<br />

2) the NRTL issues the<br />

certification for a product<br />

covered within the scope of a<br />

test standard for which OSHA<br />

has recognised it, and 3) the<br />

NRTL issues the certification<br />

from one of its sites<br />

(i.e. locations) that OSHA has<br />

recognised.<br />

NRTL certification is required<br />

for many mass-produced<br />

products and involves full typetesting<br />

of product samples and<br />

ongoing audits of the factory.<br />

However, this would prove to<br />

be a very costly exercise for<br />

bespoke equipment.<br />

Field Labelling<br />

Field Labelling is a more<br />

effective approach for<br />

machinery that is a one-off or<br />

produced in low volume. As<br />

Field Labelling is considered<br />

essential by purchasers in the<br />

USA, it is also essential for any<br />

machinery suppliers that want to<br />

export and sell to them.<br />

An evaluation of such<br />

equipment by an approved<br />

NRTL will typically take three or<br />

four days, depending on the<br />

complexity of the equipment.<br />

The first part of this evaluation<br />

is done at the machinery<br />

manufacturer's site in Europe<br />

and then completed on-site at<br />

the machinery end-user’s site in<br />

Many businesses are confused which route they should take on this issue<br />

but users of non-compliant machinery face serious consequences<br />

the USA once the equipment<br />

has been installed, at which<br />

point the NRTL engineer applies<br />

the field label.<br />

State OSHA organisations,<br />

county and municipal<br />

authorities follow the OSHA<br />

requirement by requiring<br />

electrical products,<br />

(i.e. machinery), to be approved<br />

before the product may be used<br />

in workplaces within their<br />

jurisdiction. These authorities,<br />

who enforce safety<br />

requirements for specific<br />

locations, are referred to as<br />

AHJs (Authorities Having<br />

Jurisdiction) in the USA and<br />

have responsibility for<br />

approving equipment,<br />

equipment installations and<br />

procedures. Lists of approved<br />

products are published by<br />

organisations approved by<br />

OSHA and recognised by the<br />

AHJs, so it is imperative that<br />

both manufacturers and USbased<br />

end-users of machinery<br />

review these periodically to<br />

check if there has been any<br />

change to the equipment listed.<br />

Such listed equipment is<br />

subject to periodic inspections<br />

to ensure that it still meets local<br />

safety requirements and that<br />

the equipment is being used for<br />

its intended purpose. During<br />

such ad-hoc inspections, AHJs<br />

will look for this mandatory label<br />

to prove that the equipment<br />

complies with local regulations<br />

and standards.<br />

Another layer of complexity is<br />

the requirement to use NRTLrecognised<br />

components in<br />

equipment, including safetycritical<br />

components such as<br />

fuses and cables.<br />

If manufacturers do this, Field<br />

Labelling certification will be a<br />

faster and a less painful<br />

process, so it is important that<br />

end-users ensure that their<br />

supplier is doing this.<br />

While this may seem<br />

daunting, in reality most<br />

well-regarded components have<br />

dual certification, meeting both<br />

NRTL and IEC standards, so<br />

manufacturers should not find<br />

themselves in the expensive<br />

situation of designing one<br />

product for the North American<br />

market and another for<br />

EU countries.<br />

Bosch Packaging Technology<br />

Dr Marc-Olivier Demaurex is<br />

retiring as president of the<br />

Swiss-based business while<br />

Frank Souyris is appointed<br />

Michael Dann is the new<br />

director of Rose Forgrove, an<br />

appointment made by president<br />

Mike May in support of a major<br />

horizontal wrapper systems<br />

The BBC had news for Sick UK<br />

when it featured the company’s<br />

in-house magazine SICKInsight<br />

in a recent edition of the TV<br />

comedy panel show Have I Got<br />

News for You.<br />

It featured as guest publication<br />

in the missing words round in<br />

which panellists are invited to fill<br />

in the gaps in news headlines.<br />

“Typical British laughing at a<br />

successful Germany company,”<br />

growth initiative. In this role,<br />

Dann will lead and develop<br />

strategies in international<br />

markets for the Rose Forgrove<br />

brand of machinery. He brings<br />

20 years of experience in the<br />

international packaging industry<br />

as well as a wealth of<br />

knowledge of horizontal flow<br />

wrappers and systems.<br />

Spiroflow<br />

Michael<br />

Dann<br />

Ben Ayrton is the new<br />

marketing manager at Spiroflow<br />

following the retirement of Keith<br />

Simpson who has been with<br />

the company for eight years.<br />

Packaging exhibition in June<br />

and is looking forward to<br />

family in his retriement. Ayrton,<br />

company in various roles since<br />

a summer break from University<br />

Framos Group<br />

Sebastien Dignard has been<br />

appointed to the board of<br />

directors at the London-based<br />

Framos Electronics. He is<br />

expected to advise the<br />

company on its expansion into<br />

North America and assist the<br />

senior management team on<br />

subjects such as partner<br />

planning, network definition,<br />

strategic direction and product<br />

strategy.<br />

Meech International<br />

Has Sick got news 4U?<br />

joked team captain Ian Hislop.<br />

“I bet they sell all that stuff and<br />

create jobs!”<br />

“As you can imagine, the Sick<br />

name is always something of a<br />

talking point,” says Seb Strutt,<br />

senior product manager for<br />

Sick in the UK. “It may raise a<br />

laugh, but we like to think we<br />

add meaning to the slang for<br />

‘sick’ i.e. really good or<br />

awesome.”<br />

Kieran<br />

Byrne<br />

Kieran Byrne has joined<br />

Meech International’s<br />

expanding team as sales<br />

engineer responsible for<br />

providing technical support and<br />

maintaining relationships with<br />

customers across the<br />

Midlands, northern England<br />

and Wales. Following<br />

five years of experience in<br />

sales, Byrne joined Meech as<br />

he wanted to secure a more<br />

technical role.<br />
