ppma matters

Don’t stifle innovation

with short term gains

It’s autumn again and the nights

are drawing in. A perfect time to

settle down in an armchair and

leaf through the latest edition of

the PPMA Group Directory. I know

that 3,500 of you should already

have a copy but those that don’t

can apply for one by calling the

PPMA offices.

However you get one, keep it

handy because it contains great

detail on PPMA group services,

membership benefits and detailed

entries on all the PPMA Group’s

370 members. With a combined

turnover of nearly £2bn, members can offer meaningful solutions

to just about any packaging, processing, automation or vision

equipment requirement that you can imagine. Product categories

make searching easy and direct contact details, names and

phone numbers are also listed.

Some simple maths reveals that the average turnover of

members is approximately £5m, the classic size for small,

innovative (often owner-managed) businesses. And a browse

through the directory reveals just how innovative and varied

PPMA Group members and their product ranges are.

Sadly, this profile and potential looks like it isn’t recognised by

some of the larger customers in the food sector - where one

would think quick thinking and innovation would be appreciated.

Recently, letters are being received by members indicating that

they will have to pay sums in the region of £3,000-£5,000 just to

be allowed onto a procurement list. And this sum of money is just

for their equipment to be ‘considered’ by buyers – with no

guarantee of securing any business.

There is an implication that there will be less competition

between suppliers as a result, but I doubt that purchasing

managers will all suddenly turn into pussycats.

Big companies thus restrict themselves to suppliers willing and

able to pay such sums and I struggle to see how this can really

be in their best interests. As a vast proportion of innovation

comes from small business and these small firms will struggle to

pay such speculative fees to several potential customers, it’s a

pretty safe bet that production lines at companies following this

policy will end up behind the curve.

It would be far better to study the PPMA Group Directory to

select companies that look like experts in the field required.

Or, you can leaf through the pages of this magazine to see just

how much innovation is being delivered by PPMA members.

Much award-winning equipment is covered from both small and

large companies that would all be happy to explain to you just

what their machinery can deliver for your business.

Delegates learn about

how to manage FMD

Delegates from across Ireland

were at the Carton House in

Dublin in October to attend

Domino Printing Sciences’

Irish distributor Codico’s

Falsified Medicines Directive

(FMD) Conference and learn

about the hidden challenges

of implementing serialisation

schemes. The line-up of

speakers featured Siobhain

Duggan – business

development director of

healthcare at GS1 Ireland,

Christoph Krähenbühl – EFPIA

board member, Feargal

McGroarty – project manager

at St James’s Hospital Dublin

and Ian Haynes, co-founder

and CEO of 3C Integrity, who

spoke to delegates about

lessons learned from

serialisation case studies, the

best routes to compliance and

the latest industry news

concerning the Directive.

Also joining conference

chair Craig Stobie, life

sciences global sector

manager at Domino, were a

range of technology partners

including Optel Vision,

Marchesini, VisionID, Sick and

Horizon, who all demonstrated

their compliance solutions.

Each speaker addressed

different aspects of serialisation,

with Siobhain Duggan outlining

the importance of global

standards as pharmaceutical

manufacturers prepare for the

FMD, Christoph Krähenbühl

explained EFPIA’s European

Stakeholder Model for pan-

European serialisation and

product verification, and

Feargal McGroarty talked

delegates through the

implementation of a groundbreaking

serialisation and

patient smartphone app

scheme for treatment of those

with haemophilia at St James

Hospital. To round-up, Ian

Haynes discussed his practical

experience of serialisation from

his time as associate global

engineering director at

AstraZeneca – one of the first

manufacturers to implement a

serialisation trial.

Summing up the

conference, Domino’s Stobie

said: “Many companies are

dragging their heels and

denying the impending arrival

of the FMD but even among

the more proactive

manufacturers there are

marked differences.

“Poor companies see

serialisation as an engineering

challenge that can be fixed by

simply buying new kit, while

good companies are engaging

with senior management,

assembling cross-divisional

teams and working with

vendors to achieve

compliance,” he continued.

Survey reveals

steady growth

Optimism among UK

manufacturers rose at the

fastest rate since April 2010

as orders and output continued

to grow steadily in the three

months to October, according

to the latest CBI quarterly

industrial trends survey.

The survey of more than

350 manufacturers reveals

total new orders grew for the

second consecutive quarter

and output rose for the third

consecutive quarter. Total new

orders grew at the fastest

pace since April 2012, with

growth in the volume of

domestic orders at its highest

rate since April 2011.

Rising demand helped

boost overall sentiment as

well as optimism about

export prospects for the year

ahead, said the survey

despite new export orders

growing only slightly.

The investment intentions of

manufacturing firms continued

to present a mixed picture.

Plans for spending on plant

and machinery declined on

three months ago but

strengthened for ‘intangibles’

such as product innovation,

where investment intentions

were the strongest for the

Open Day answers

e-commerce needs

Italian machinery manufacturer

CMC unveiled its PPMA

award-winning CartonWrap

machine at an Open House

event at its Perugia-based

factory in October.

CMC founder and president

Giuseppe Ponti told the

150 people gathered at the

plant that CartonWrap

represented the best of Italian

creativity in packaging

machinery design.

“We are a company that

invests in R&D and so in

tough market conditions, we

have looked at what will be

demanded in the future and

Domenico Manfucci (left) from the CMC

technical sales support team explains the

benefits of CartonWrap to visitors

decided that we need

equipment to answer internet

requirements,” he said.

“CartonWrap is a further

development of our traditional

mailing, personalisation and

wrapping equipment to meet

e-commerce and the fulfilment

market needs.

“This is a new industry for us,

but we think we have met the

needs of this sector by building

flexibility and efficiency in,” he

continued. “We want to outrun

the times, not keep up with

them,” he said.

During the development

stages, the company

presented the concept to

potential customers around the

world and, from this feedback,

CMC held an Open House event in Italy in October to unveil CartonWrap

the prototype has been

enhanced to meet these

needs. It was at this stage that

the company entered the

machine for the most

innovative processing

or packaging machine

at the PPMA Awards

last year, and walked

away with the top

prize.

Judges felt that the

roll-fed flexible carton

manufacturing

system specifically

designed for the

varied e-commerce

packing requirements

displayed an optimum mix of

innovation and market

requirement, with

the added benefit of

a significant

reduction in

packaging materials

and shipping

volume.

In operation,

variable-sized boxes

are created from a

continuous reel of

corrugated

cardboard on demand. These

boxes are formed around the

product to be packed, based

on product dimensions fed to

the carton former by the

scanner at the start of the

process. In this way, there is

no wasted packaging material,

no requirement for fillers

and therefore reduced

shipping costs.

An infinite range of box

sizes can be produced from a

corrugated roll which means

there is no need to procure

and stock pre-made boxes.

CMC believes that users of

CartonWrap can effectively

lower costs, improve

customer satisfaction and

sustain environmental

benefits in their packaging

processes.

At the Open House event,

attendees heard from various

CMC executives about the

benefits of the machine before

www.machineryupdate.co.uk


Detecting machine faults

Academics from the Lincoln

School of Engineering have

devised a streamlined new

approach which can detect

faults in industrial machines.

Dr Jun Chen, Michael

Gallimore, Professor Chris

Bingham and Dr Yu Zhang

from the University of Lincoln,

together with Professor Mahdi

Mahfouf from the University of

Sheffield have developed an

algorithm that is more robust

and efficient at identifying

specific faults in automated

mechanical processes. With

this improved detection and

classification of faults, the

group of academics say the

time and money wasted on

investigating false alarms will

be reduced and a machine

will be operational for longer

periods.

The method combines two

existing mathematical models

for fault detection; a real-coded

Genetic Algorithm (GA) and a

K-means clustering technology.

The team discovered that the

combination of these two

processes into the G3Kmeans

algorithm is more effective in

quickly obtaining an optimum

solution, requiring only

11 repetitions to detect a

certain fault, whereas

previous intuitive GA-based

clustering methods go through

more than a thousand.

“With the G3Kmeans

algorithm you can reach a

reliable classification that is

the first step towards optimal

maintenance,” explains Dr

Chen. “This is the first step in

creating an algorithm that

optimises the search for a

solution and can identify a

fault with certainty.”

3D vision proves a winner

The use of 3D vision was

fundamental in the winning

entry in the robotics and

automation category in this

year’s Food Processing

awards.

Indeed, the vision solution

from Scorpion Vision solved the

problems of dealing with highly

contoured surfaces and product

to product variability when icing

individual cakes in this robotic

system, for the first time. This

solution is based upon the use

of 3D vision and lasers to scan

the surface of the cake in less

than 1.0 second, with the

resultant data being used to

calculate the robot path for that

individual item.

The robotic solution was

devised by Quasar Automation

with Mitsubishi Electric and

Scorpion as technology

partners (Machinery Update –

Sept/Oct issue).

“The key to success of the

system is the method used to

create the 3D model, using data

from the camera which is

quickly processed by the

Scorpion compact PC before

transmission to the robot control

system,” explains Paul Wilson

md of Scorpion Vision. The

This robotic solution won a Food Processing award this September

for Quasar Automation, Mitsubishi Electric and Scorpion Vision

Scorpion Compact Vision

system connected to a

Scorpion 3D Stinger MLaser

Camera creates an accurate 3D

model of the cake top surface in

real-time. This is achieved by

illuminating the top of the cake

with a series of lines that will

follow the shape of the top of

the cake. “Scorpion Vision is

then able to map the position in

space of each segment of laser

line and from this, extrapolate

the virtual shape which then

becomes the 3D model,”

explains Wilson.

Once this is achieved, the

“Happy Birthday” deposit is

accurately projected onto the

top surface by the icing tip,

following the contours and

moving the tip up and down in

line with the cake surface,

ensuring the icing tip maintains

a constant distance from the

cake’s surface.

Wilson also believes that this

presents other opportunities as

an enabling technology across

all sectors of industry where the

application of a liquid or

dynamic material has to be

placed on curved or changing

surfaces. A standard robot

system can be trained with the

3D position when this is known,

but this is not always the case.

It may also be more efficient

to dynamically calculate the

correct 3D position where

adjustments have to be made

‘on the fly’.

A typical example may

include the application of glues

or sealants and where the

viscous property of the

material being applied will

change in a very short period

of time.

Soldering, deburring and

polishing are all robot

application areas which could

benefit from real time 3D

machine vision guidance, says

Wilson.

Shrink range

is extended

Shrink wrapping supplier

Audion Elektro has extended

its range of economic

machines with the

AudionShrink Combi system

that is available in two model

sizes – LT 470 and LT 670.

These two units combine a

heavy duty L-bar sealer and

shrink tunnel for packing,

sealing and shrinking

products, and can be used

with a variety of films due to

their precise temperature and

speed controls.

The need for a hot knife

seal bar is eliminated as a

special seal wire temperature

control system is incorporated.

The AudionShrink LT series

is a heavy duty machine with

easy to use microprocessor

controls, and its digitally

controlled tunnel temperature

produces consistently strong

seals and precise shrink

wrapping, says UK agent

The latest CW3 SlimLine

combination checkweighing

and metal detecting system

from Loma Systems offers

50% packing line space

saving from the metal detector

head. The new design

integrates the CW3

checkweigher and the IQ3+

metal detector.

Combining these technologies

in a compact unit allows quality

assurance mandates to

be met as well as offering a

competitive cost of ownership.

This is due to cost savings of

up to 15% when compared to

the purchase of two individual

units along with the flexibility to

achieve increased productivity,

says Loma.

Also, this new SlimLine

inspection unit not only

delivers reduced footprint

savings, but it can be

relocated quickly and easily to

meet changing manufacturing

requirements.

The IQ3+ metal detector

uses variable frequency

technology which means that

products can be automatically

calibrated in seconds and

frequency data for many

different products can be

stored for fast and easy

machine set up.

Contaminated products

are rejected by means of a

pusher mechanism, diverter

one minute with no manual

adjustment which cuts

changeover time and line

downtime to a minimum.

The ground level infeed

means that no pack elevator or

platform is required which

enhances the system’s

ergonomic efficiency and

improves health and safety

Carton former makes

its worldwide debut

Bradman Lake launched its

latest carton forming

technology at PackExpo Las

Vegas in September.

The HSS300 all servo glue

carton former is capable of

speeds up to 300 cartons or

trays a minute. It is a new

version of the well-known

Bradman Lake HSS Carton

Former Series and can be

supplied as an individual unit

or as part of an integrated

system with Bradman Lake’s

wrapping, product loading and

case packing equipment.

Consistent and square

carton or tray erecting is critical

for the efficient operation of a

top load cartoning system and

this HSS all servo carton

former can erect cartons and

trays using hot melt glue or

four corner lock.

The HSS machine utilises a

servo powered reciprocating

‘shuttle’ method of feeding the

carton blanks into the forming

tool. This guarantees excellent

performance with quick and

easy setup using factory set

tooling, says the company.

This latest machine can

erect various board types

including chip board and

corrugated board as well as a

variety of carton types. These

include three flap closure,

single flap closure with dust

flaps, hooded lid closure, turn

over end style and turn over

end style with frame view.

changeovers for the Stabilo

seal bags are considerably

aid. The Rovema turret

adjustment with up to six

pre-set stop positions for the

Stabilo seal sealing jaws

defines both bag depth and

bag width with precision. This

reduced the set up time and

ensures repeatability.

This technical flexibility

and improved productivity

ensures efficient running of

the machine, says Rovema.

The turret adjustment

meets the trend towards an

increase in product variety

with constantly decreasing

Latest ranges

offer hygiene

To address growing

consumer demand for safer

and higher quality products,

Bosch Packaging Technology

has developed several new

technologies with a particular

focus on hygiene.

The Pack 301 IN inverted

horizontal flow wrapper, for

instance, is designed for soft,

sticky or difficult to handle

products while its smart

design enhances hygiene

and product safety without

compromising productivity.

This inverted horizontal flow

wrapper transports the

packaging film from below,

while the product is fed

directly from the feeding

system onto the film. This

prevents pushing the product

over a steel plate.

Robots are compact

Fanuc’s LR Mate 200-iD robot

range has two new additions:

the 200iD/4S designed for

integration into confined

spaces and the 200iD/7L for

high speed handling

applications where extra

reach is required.

Designed with compactness

in mind for integration into

special purpose machinery,

the LRMate 200iD already

claims best in class footprint

and lowest overall weight,

but the 200iD/4S takes

this a step further with a

footprint of 160 x 160mm and

weighing in at just 20kgs.

Further space saving is

achieved by reducing the

maximum width of the arm

down to 190mm and reducing

the reach to 550mm while

maintaining only a slightly

reduced working envelope to

the standard 200iD arm.

The result is a highly

compact 4kgs payload

robot arm ideal for

machine builders or

integrators to facilitate into

dense manufacturing

automation environments.

Its light weight makes

positioning the arm in any

position straight-forward

and allows fast

maintenance swap-out for

systems where lengthy

downtimes are not an option.

The new LRMate 200ID/7L

has the standard 200iD range

payload of 7kgs but has a

reach of 911mm, an

additional 27%. Increasing the

scope of applications that can

be undertaken, the new

arm is still capable of

181 picks of 25x300x25mm

per minute.

There are two new additions to the range

Maintaining the benefits of

the LRMate 200iD range, in

particular high speed

operation, compact design

and IP 67 protection level,

Collating pre-packs

meets retailer needs

Responding to increasing

convenience store retailer

demands for easy to handle

multipacks of bulk food items,

Pacepacker Services has

launched a collator system

which will quickly collate and

place pre-packed items into an

outer sack totalling up to 25kg.

This standalone collator

system has been designed to

work with existing sack placing

and sealing equipment and is

capable of collating and

packing up to 80 pre-packs into

outer sacks per minute, the

system overcomes common

problems typically seen with

other variants.

“We saw a gap in the

market for a collator which

would continuously support

the pre-packed bulk goods as

they were entering the outer

sack,” explains Paul

Wilkinson, Pacepacker’s

business development

manager. “We found that

many systems on the market

did not control the fall of the

product very well, which often

results in pre-packs breaking

through the bottom of the

outer sack due to their weight

and density.

“We have improved this part

of the process by incorporating

motorised support arms to

control the descent of the prepacked

polybags into the outer

Ishida Europe has introduced

a second model into its weigh

batcher range. The new

Roto-Batcher combines the

accurate weighing of fresh

meat and poultry with manual

manipulation to optimise their

arrangement and presentation

in trays, while its circular rotary

batching table, positioned

directly below the weigher, also

maximises the return on space.

The Roto-Batcher has been

developed for sticky meat and

poultry products that cannot

be easily moved by feeder

vibration, or for when manual

product feeding is not

economically viable. Using

eight operators, the system

can deliver speeds of 55 trays

per minute with an average

giveaway of only 1%.

Product is weighed

automatically on Ishida’s Screw

Feeder weigher and each

portion is then despatched to

one of the packing stations on

the batching table where an

operator transfers it to the tray,

styles it and places the tray on

an ‘out’ belt for sealing,

labelling and quality control.

The station automatically

informs the system once the

filled and styled tray has left,

triggering the sending of

another weighed item.

Compact robot is built

to suit many industries

Nachi-Fujikoshi has

developed the MZ07 which is

billed as a fast, lightweight

and compact robot. This 7kg

payload robot has been

designed to meet demand for

robotisation and automation

not only in traditionally strong

fields of automotive and

industrial machinery, but also

across more diverse areas

such as electronics, foodstuffs

and chemicals.

Nachi believes that the

demand for compact robots to

handle manual tasks such as

machining, transporting small

objects, assembling and

packaging will expand further

in China and other emerging

nations in the face of steep

rises in labour costs and a

decreasing workforce. This

robot has been designed with

these market trends in mind.

For instance, using a

lightweight and rigid body

along with its independently

developed control technology,

Nachi says it has achieved

the world’s fastest operating

speed, a 37% increase on

previous models. This

contributes to increased

productivity in a wide range

of applications.

The space saving design of

the robot means it can be

used to replace a robot on

existing equipment or installed

The MZ07 is a robot designed to bring automation to new markets

easily on new machinery. This

is due to its portability and

wide motion range. It also

offers a smart cable layout –

all the cables pass through the

hollow interior which greatly

reduces the risk of them

interfering with peripheral

equipment – high dust and

water resistance, and seven

types of standardised hands.

Also, a compact, highly

functional controller supports

the MZ07 which can be

installed vertically to help save

space. Features such as a

software PLC to control the

system, including peripheral

equipment, and an offline

simulation tool are provided as

standard to offer both high

functionality and ease of use.

roller conveyors.

Due to restricted space, a

HFFS unit provides

leak-proof pouches

The latest Bossar machine at Nikwax has several new features to improve productivity

Waterproofing products

manufacturer Nikwax has

installed a second

horizontal form fill and seal

machine from Bossar

Packaging of Barcelona,

Spain at its

Wadhurst, East

Sussex facility.

“This investment

reinforces Nikwax’s

confidence in the

Bossar brand and

this latest machine

has several new

features to

improve

productivity and

the quality of the

product produced,”

explains Alan

Lewis of UK and Ireland

agent Shrinkpack. And Mick

Parmer, operations director

at Nikwax agrees.

“The Nikwax products can

be challenging to pack due

to the specific components

in our liquid formulations,” he

says. “This combined with a

wide range of viscosities can

make our packs difficult to fill

and to achieve robust liquid

seals that will not leak.”

The liquids

are packed in

Doypack style

bags with

a Euro-hole.

Due to the

complexity in the

dosing of these

types of products,

a new liquid filling

system has been

chosen for this

machine. It is

based on an

Endress & Hauser

mass flow meter and a new

nozzle design incorporating

a specially designed head

with orifices that dispenses

the liquid products and fills

the bag. And all while

minimising splashing.

With this new filling

equipment, Nikwax can

achieve a maximum of

+/-1% of fill volume

tolerance of the total

desired volume, which

ensures product giveaway

is minimised.

As well as the newly

designed liquid filling

system, Bossar has

supplied Nikwax with an

ultrasonic sealing system on

the pouch machine to ensure

hermetic leak proof seals are

obtained consistently on

every pouch produced. This

ultrasonic sealing system

was seen as a vital element

of giving Nikwax the

With much of its sales coming

C

Reducing downtime by

trending machine data

A key part of condition based maintenance is vibration analysis which, thanks to the development of more

cost effective equipment, is now within everyone’s reach, argues C-Cubed, while trending data also has a key

part to play in reducing machine downtime

Much has been written about

different maintenance strategies

from reactive (or breakdown)

maintenance through planned

preventative maintenance

(PPM) and condition based/

predictive maintenance

(CBM/PdM) to proactive

maintenance (PXM). It has

however been shown conclusively

in every case that each

improvement in maintenance

strategy brings about a further

large saving in costs.

One US study showed that

the cost (in US dollars per

horsepower per year) reduced

from 17 USD/HP/year for

reactive maintenance to 9

USD/HP/year for CBM – a

saving of almost half. Moving

to proactive maintenance, the

savings are even greater.

But trending data is a very

simple method of getting the

most out of any maintenance

strategy. There are basically

two different approaches to

doing this.

On a PC

Vibration analysis readings can

be difficult to analyse and

many companies rely on

expert consultants to make

sense of their data. But by

using a simple meter and

trending just two numbers –

the ISO mm/s and bearing

damage units – a huge amount

of information concerning the

state of a machine can very

quickly and easily be seen.

How you trend the data

depends on the meter used

and this can vary from the use

of a simple Excel spreadsheet

The Vib Meter 330 has a price and specification which brings

meaningful vibration analysis within reach of everyone, says C-Cubed

where numbers are typed in,

to an automatic trending meter

like the C-Cubed Vib Meter

330 with its included VibTrend

software. Nowadays these

tools are available at very low

cost making this strategy

extremely affordable to

everyone.

For instance, the new Vib

Meter 330 from C-Cubed has a

brings meaningful vibration

analysis within reach of

wire saw and the effect of a bearing change

everyone, argues Stephen

Hawes, UK and Ireland sales

manager at C-Cubed. Whether

to complement an existing

CBM service or to finally

instigate your own programme,

at £990 the VM330 costs a

fraction of previous vibration

analysers, he says.

The included ‘Vibtrend’ PC

software produces graphical

trending overtime so it is very

easy to notice increases in

vibration. There are readings

for ISO (low frequency) BDU

(bearing damage units) or high

frequency vibration. Further,

the VM330 shows band alarms

to warn of unbalance,

misalignment and looseness.

When user configured alarm

levels are exceeded the

VM330 and PC will warn with

colour coded status screens

and send exception reports by

e-mail to designated people.

With the Vib Meter 330 every

time a reading is taken against

a named asset, the reading is

automatically added to the

trend graph. Not only is the

trending simple but so is the

meter, with almost all functions

using a single button - this is a

technology designed for all

maintenance personnel not

just the techies.

The Vib Meter 330 can store

up to 1000 machines by name

and presents the readings in a

clear and simple colour-coded

way, while uploading the

readings to a PC is just a

matter of placing it in its USB

docking cradle. Taking

Only a heartbeat away

from FMD compliance

Pharmaceutical manufacturers that have not started down the road to compliance with the EU Falsified Medicines Directive are

running out of time, says Harry Thomason

“Forward planning will be essential for

manufacturers in order to ensure that

they meet the deadlines for the Falsified

Medicines Directive (FMD).” So says

Harry Thomason, managing director of

the pharma coding company Travtec.

“Although 2017 still seems a long way

off, there is a lot of preparation work

necessary for companies to become

compliant,” he says. “It is not simply a

question of selecting a printer that is

capable of producing the necessary codes.

“For example, code verification is highly

dependable on having an easily readable

code that is placed correctly on the pack,

and since printers do not always operate in

ideal conditions, this is sometimes not so

easy to achieve.

“A pack therefore needs to be

completely controlled during the printing

process which requires an appropriate

feeding and handling system. And for

efficient quality control purposes, a vision

system needs to be incorporated as well.

And since none of these pieces of

equipment work in isolation, it is vital that

they are fully integrated and able to

communicate with each other as part of

seamless operation. And of course all this

kit then has to be integrated effectively into

existing lines.”

Achieving this can be a time-consuming

process and as Thomason points out, the

closer the 2017 deadline becomes, the

busier systems providers will be.

“Companies need to be selecting their

partners now,” he states. “The time

available to find these suppliers and

implement the right systems, is fast

running out – if manufacturers want

to be sure of being ready for FMD

compliance in 2017, it is definitely

a case of now or never.”

Thomason believes that one of the

stumbling blocks that have held back

some companies is the fact that in difficult

economic times many are reluctant to

consider investment in something that is

not going to improve the bottom line in

terms of enhanced productivity or efficiency.

“Nevertheless, the fact is that if these

systems are not in place by 2017, then

companies will no longer be able to do

business throughout Europe and

potentially even further afield,” he

comments. “Furthermore, there is a good

business opportunity in acting sooner

rather than later. Already countries such

as France and Turkey have introduced

their own anti-counterfeiting regulations

such as the requirement for CP13 codes

in France, so this can give companies a

head start in being able to supply into

these markets.”

Companies need to shop around to find

a supplier who can tailor a system to their

precise requirements. “Obviously costefficiency

is going to be important and

suppliers can devise systems according

to available budget but it is vital that any

solution is fit for purpose,” says

Thomason. “There are many things that

need to be taken into account in the

creation of a system such as the type of

pack to be coded, the speed of the line

and the available factory space.”

Looking beyond the immediate

requirements of the FMD will also be

important.

“Currently the FMD only requires

serialisation of a code,” Thomason points

out. “In the future a full track and trace

capability may be required, so it is

important that pharmaceutical companies

seek to future-proof their operations.”

The next 16 pages focus on issues


surrounding FMD as well as all the latest

developments in manufacturing and

handling pharmaceuticals across Europe.

Suppliers can help with

the FMD learning curve

With the transposition of the European Union’s Falsified Medicines Directive into law in August, the race against time for

Europe’s pharmaceutical suppliers to meet new legislative requirements for Europe’s pharmaceutical manufacturers is

gathering pace. But in the face of operational challenges, how do manufacturers maintain business as usual?

asks Craig Scobie from Domino Printing Sciences

‘All talk and no action’ is a phrase that

might spring to mind where the Falsified

Medicines Directive (FMD 2011/62/EU)

is concerned. But following years of

discussion and debate, what once seemed

a distant prospect has now become a

looming inevitability. While there are no

doubt behind-the-scenes negotiations

being conducted by individual companies

and industry groupings, the legislators’

current stance is one of ‘no exemptions

and no exclusions.’

Translated for those companies affected

– a group which includes any

manufacturer, packer, re-packager,

wholesaler, distributor, supplying

prescription pharmaceuticals into any of

the EU 28 countries – this means no

excuses. Alongside more rigorous

inspections of the manufacturers of active

pharmaceutical ingredients, and the

obligation for manufacturers and

distributors to report any suspicion of

falsified medicines, it is the requirement for

Craig Stobie, global life sciences sector

manager at Domino says the collective

scramble towards the FMD compliance

finishing line is well and truly on

Any producer intending to supply prescription pharmaceutical

products into any of the 28 countries of the European Union

will need to comply with all of the FMD’s requirements

enhanced outer pack features that is

causing most consternation, particularly for

those in the packing hall charged with

implementing the new measures.

It’s possible that the current predicament

stems from an early, cursory reading of the

key requirements of the Directive, during

which item level identification was

classified as an adjustment to the preexisting

arrangements for the application

of variable data. It’s now abundantly clear

– and painfully so in some cases – that

that was a significant miscalculation.

The industry at large has now woken up

to that fact and the collective scramble

towards the compliance finishing line is

well and truly on: it’s a challenge

complicated by the fact that there is still a

lack of clarity around some fairly significant

aspects of the Directive.

Manufacturers and packers should

certainly be aware by now that the FMD

effectively means that each item will in

future be a ‘batch of one’

with its own unique

record. If they have not

already installed, or at

least identified, coding

equipment compatible

with this requirement,

then they face a very

challenging few

months: the European

Stakeholder model

(ESM) suggests that four

to five years is required

to successfully

implement serialisation.

What is less clear is

the process by which the

data collected during the

packing process will be

managed thereafter –

and who will pay for the maintenance of

the infrastructure required to support

that process.

This is leading to polarisation of opinion

among, and even within, different industry

groups. For example, debate persists

around whether falsification is a uniform

and universal threat: the British Generics

Manufacturing Association believes that

the technical requirements of the FMD can

only provide ‘secondary lines of defence’

which ‘may give a false sense of security’.

It has also noted that ‘no counterfeit

generic medicine has been discovered in

the European Union.’

By contrast, a recent survey of

pharmaceutical manufacturers, found that

80% of respondents think counterfeiting is

as much of a problem for generics as it is

for branded pharmaceuticals. It’s fair to

assume that no-one knows the true scale

of counterfeiting, neither will the Directive,

or any other measure, eradicate it, however

32 MACHINERY UPDATE: NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2013 www.machineryupdate.co.uk


it is time to begin turning the tide in order

to protect patients throughout the EU.

It is evident that the challenge of

complying with the FMD faced by small

and mid-sized companies is greater by

orders of magnitude than for

multi-nationals, where the data

management required by the Directive will

most probably become a function of

existing ERP systems. As anticipated, the

mid-sized pharma manufacturers are

anxious about finding a solution that won’t

cost the earth, won’t result in too much

downtime or too much of company

directors’ time.

For smaller companies, a wholesale

upgrade of their coding kit will need to be

accompanied by a robust plan that

touches on almost every department in the

company and which has buy-in from

senior management. Almost half of our

survey respondents felt that the

implementation timeframe of four to five

years suggested by the ESM was correct,

which suggests that many producers are

currently well behind schedule.

With the focus at this stage very much

on putting in place the hardware and

software infrastructure for compliance, less

attention is being paid to what will

constitute ‘business as usual’ in the

serialisation era.

Returning to the packing hall, the past

couple of decades

have seen huge

progress in raising

OEE levels. Once

accorded significant

latitude in productivity

because of the need

to ensure patient

safety, the

pharmaceutical sector

is now subject to

greater commercial

pressure as state

health and welfare

budgets continue to

rise. Profit margins

are being squeezed,

meaning that efficiency levels are under

ever greater scrutiny.

The anticipated impact of serialisation

on efficiency is therefore a significant

consideration. Anecdotal evidence from

early adopters of serialisation schemes

suggests that the reject/re-work level in the

early stages can be as much as 10%, far

in excess of what is acceptable.

pharmaceuticals

special feature

The FMD means that many mid sized companies including generics will need to implement a

wholesale upgrade of their coding kit. Shown here is the Domino G-Series TIJ printer

This reduces overtime, with rates well

below 1% being achievable but it takes

commitment, effort and engineering

know-how. Add to this that over half of

the respondents to our survey felt that

OEE will be reduced – in some cases by

as much as 20% - and it is apparent how

crucial it is to factor in time to address

this issue.

The key factor here is the need to

when the

that each

the challenge becomes clear.

It is an unenviable task for production

requires an examination of packaging line

performance from every angle. At its heart

is the choice of coding equipment: beyond

the obvious need for serialisation

capability, coders must also be able to

produce clear, high resolution codes with

a good degree of contrast to facilitate

reliable reading. Beyond that, early

serialisation pilots have shown just how

disruptive unplanned stoppages are,

creating issues with both assigning

identities and handling and accounting for

rejects. Addressing poor machine

performance in advance is therefore

highly recommended.

Whichever route manufacturers choose

to comply with the FMD, there is no doubt

that there will be teething problems, but

there are benefits too: ultimately, and

despite what half of survey respondents

predicted in the short term, we believe

that serialisation will raise the bar for

OEE in the long term, with the data

offering a valuable resource to help

identify factors adversely impacting

production.

There’s a steep learning curve involved

in getting there but help is at hand in the

form of counsel from your equipment

suppliers and from industry peers who

have led the way. Furthermore,

serialisation has the potential to be a

powerful tool to facilitate improved

adherence with medication regimes and

therefore a better patient outcome, which

in the end benefits everyone.

Robots bring benefits

to pharma production

As robots find their way into many pharmaceutical secondary production processes, Alan Spreckley, segment manager –

consumer industries and packaging for ABB’s UK robotics business, explains the benefits they have already delivered in

pharmaceutical applications

With robots still largely considered as

new technology in many quarters, it has

taken a while for robotic equipment to be

accepted as part of the Good

Manufacturing Processes (GMP) set out

for the production of food and

pharmaceutical products.

Major advances in robotic technology in

recent years have made it increasingly

suitable for both food and beverage and

pharmaceutical processes alike.

Foremost amongst these has been the

development of specific hygienic design

models for these industries, rather than

just adaptation of existing models

developed for other applications.

As in so many other industrial

applications, robots are already proving

their value in pharmaceutical applications

worldwide. The following are just some of

the key processes where robots are

already being deployed.

The research and development stage

has historically been a complicated,

time-consuming process. With advances

in robotic technology, this situation has

Robots pick and place flow packed teat

pipette droppers from a conveyor belt and

insert them into a carton together with a

bottle containing penicillin

Robots are helping to improve the speed and

diversity of product handling for pharma

now changed, such that thousands of

potential pharmaceutical products can

now be developed and tested in a

fraction of the time previously required.

One example is High Throughput

Screening (HTS). Using robotic

technology, coupled with data processing

software, liquid handling devices and

sensitive detection equipment, HTS

enables research teams to conduct

millions of tests, leading to much faster

discovery and development of new

pharmaceutical products. Improvements

brought by this technology have meant

that up to 100,000 samples per day can

now be tested and evaluated, compared

with the 30 samples per day previously

achievable with manual screening.

With ultra-High Throughput Screening

(uHTS) now also in development,

robots could soon also have a part to

play in processing even greater numbers

of samples.

Another important benefit of utilising

robotic technology has also been the

elimination of the negative impact of

human tedium on test results. Today’s

robots can handle the full range of tasks

inherent in the screening process,

spanning everything from sample

preparation and shaking samples through

to transporting samples between different

experiment points.

Robots have also proved useful in

temperature controlled processes, where

samples need to be incubated in special

ovens for specific periods. In these

applications, the robot can automatically

insert and remove samples to ensure

they are incubated under the correct

conditions.

There are several areas in which the

demands on robots in pharmaceutical

processes differ from those in standard

industrial applications.

One key difference is the need for

faster cycle times. Time constraints on

the screening processes, for example,

where each part of the experimentation

process needs to be performed for a set

duration, mean that robots have to move

at faster speeds without any negative

impact on precision.

With recent developments in robotic

control technology, coupled with

advances in handling accessories, such

as grippers, robots have proven highly

adept at delivering fast, repeatable

performance. Developments in vision

technology, such as the arrival of colour

and three-dimensional capabilities, have

also helped to add an extra element of

intelligence, enabling products and/or

specific batches to be recognised and

tracked through production and

packaging, crucial for meeting traceability

requirements.

The benefits that robots can bring in

the packaging of pharmaceutical products

scanners to read barcodes on boxes

proved so fast and reliable that it

was subsequently moved to a

larger area where it now loads up

to six pallets at a time.

Once the contents of the tubs are

emptied, the robot places each tub and

its lid onto a pallet. This placement too

has to be carefully controlled to meet

pharmaceutical GMP requirements, which

stipulate strict separation of packaging

materials and products.

The robot also incorporates a

telecamera, which matches each tub and

its contents through datamatrix code

reading, to ensure that the correct

vaccines have arrived in the correct tubs

and eliminate the risk of potential cross

contamination.

Answering serialisation needs

According to IMA, there are a number of

key trends in the pharmaceutical market

causing the increase in counterfeit

problems. Massive growth of internet sales

unlicensed markets and the huge potential

for producing copycat medicines have all

helped to flood the market with counterfeits.

In short, says IMA, European industry is

calling for: a harmonised coding and

serialisation system across Europe for

greater patient safety; a stakeholder

governed point-of-dispense system for

cost-effectiveness and a 2D data matrix

based on international standard as unique

identifier for inter-operability.

Different solutions to bring drug

packaging production in line with the rising

track and trace requirements are available

but there is no one solution that will fit all

legislative requirements or customer

requests.

“The best approach by companies is to

be clear which markets are being supplied

This labeller from IMA answers

needs

by which lines and they can therefore

determine the minimum requirements for

product compliance,” argues Des O’Neil,

md of IMA UK. “Companies can then

decide which approach they wish to

adopt, above the basic requirements of

legislative compliance at a corporate,

geographic, or site level.”

The Sensitive AP400 from IMA is

designed to answer all the different

requirements in terms of track & trace, with

a lot of machines already up and running

worldwide. The machine has been

developed according to a modular

constructive design and is available in

different combinations with several

applications to be customised according

to the country legislation requirements

and to the specific approach of the

pharmaceutical industry.

IMA Life’s labelling equipment features

the application of labels on one, two or

three faces of the carton (only on top or

only on lateral sides or on all of them), thus

providing a reliable method to securing

against the threats of counterfeit, misbrand

and adulterated drugs, explains O’Neil.

The possibility to host up to three

labelling heads and the high output (up to

of flexibility.

Infrared system for

woundcare products

Olmec-UK has designed and

installed an end of line

inspection system at a leading

manufacturer of woundcare

products to replace human

inspection that was proving

unreliable.

The new system has been

designed to inspect for the

following defects: empty

pouches; pouches with the

incorrect amount of dressings

and dressings trapped in seals.

It links directly to the outfeed of the

existing packaging machine which seals

the woundcare product into a four sided

pouch measuring 125 x 102mm. The

inspection system utilises infrared (IR)

imaging technology which has brought

minimal disruption to the current line, as it

links in with the existing reject mechanism.

The vision system is mounted between

two conveyor belts and features a single

line scan camera equipped with IR Lens

pass filters mounted above the line and

an IR light mounted underneath. At an IR

wavelength of 880nm, the paper

packaging material transmits far more

light than the products inside, allowing the

presence and position of the product to

be easily verified including whether it is

trapped in the seal.

Since the packs are moving along the

belt, the line scan camera with a line

resolution of 2048 pixels produces high

quality images. The system is capable of

inspecting the 100 products per minute

arriving from the packaging machine.

In operation, the packaging machine

has a centre datum for the sealing areas,

which means that when this seal is cut to

give individual packs, it forms the leading

edge on half the packs and the trailing

edge on the other half. The vision system

needs to identify this datum for each

inspection as all other seals on the pack

are referenced to it.

This is achieved by using two sensors

to register whether the product has come

from the left hand or right hand lane of

the packaging machine. A trigger sensor

initiates the inspection. Image processing

is carried out on a PC mounted within the

system, with results displayed on a

19in industrial touch screen.

All products that are ‘out of spec’ are

automatically rejected, while ‘good’

product is transferred to an existing

collator where the products are positioned

in an easy way for the operators to gather

them up and package them.

Provision is made to stop the line in the

event of a false reject or false acceptance.

Creating patient kits

for clinical studies

Thanks to a TLM packaging line from Schubert, Hoffmann-La Roche in Switzerland has been able to automate

the packaging process for its patient kits for clinical studies for the first time. And much to the delight of its

head of clinical packaging and labelling

“For 10 years, we have had a vision of

packaging the patient kits for our clinical

studies using an automated process and

this dream is now being fulfilled,”

declares Christoph Mettler, head of

clinical packaging and labelling at

Hoffmann-La Roche AG in Switzerland.

A TLM packaging line from Schubert

including its Transmodule rail based

robots, allots medication and placebos to

individual patients and groups

pre-determined quantities of them

together into multi-packs to form a

personalised patient kit.

A single packaging error can nullify the

results of an extensive clinical study so a

high degree of manual labour is involved

in creating patient kits. And even if they

are assembling as few as 100 to 300

patient kits it is worth automating as

people can make mistakes which is

something even the best quality routines

cannot prevent.

On this part of the machine, the label containing personalised patient data is applied on the blisters

To automate the packaging process,

however, the line must be able to master

the challenge of the single-unit batch.

A specific number of products (active

agent or placebo) are personalised for

each patient with his or her respective

information and then packed into a box,

which is then also personalised. Schubert

believes the data management required

goes beyond ‘track and trace’. It is not

enough to keep track of which package

contains a certain product as a control

process determines which product is to

be packed into which box.

As a result, it must also be possible,

using individual data, to produce

products and boxes again if they have

been rejected for non-conformity. All the

required steps of the process are

repeated, from retrieving a product or box

to personalising (marking) them and

assigning a patient’s products to his or

her box.

On this section of the Schubert line, a TLM2 robot places three blisters on a Transmodule

Patient data

Patient data is stored in a database. The

successful processing of a patient kit is

registered with a time stamp in the data

special feature

pharmaceuticals

The entire line in Switzerland comprises seven sub-machines and it is currently set up for blisters of various sizes and a number of different box sizes

The line-management system receives

an Excel file with the patient data via a

USB interface. In addition to the patient

data, the lot order also contains the

production data (e.g. layout variants of

the patient kit). When the order is started,

line components like the vision system

receive all the data they require.

Multiple cameras

The line integrates multiple camera

systems to monitor the readability,

completeness and proper placement of

labels on blisters and boxes as well as

the normal array of sensors which

check to ensure that boxes are

closed properly. If the

system reports an error,

the respective part which

would have been included

in a patient kit (label,

blister, box etc) is

rejected.

Single-unit batches

make it more challenging

than normal to organise

repeated production, says

Schubert and in order to

enable the individualised

assignment of blisters/boxes,

mixing up the sequences

involved must be prevented.

Kit with

two

rows

For this reason, the solution for Roche

involves the line controller initiating an

interruption. The following is an example

using blisters. Properly labelled blisters

are transported further and packed into

the respective boxes. Once all the blisters

of a patient kit have left the filling area,

the missing blister is produced again. The

same goes for the box. Positively

checked, and therefore already filled,

patient kits can be placed on a buffer

table until the box which has been

produced and filled again is discharged.

There are two requirements which must

be met for this process organisation and

the associated data management to

function. Firstly, the blisters of

a patient are not retrieved

(produced) until his or her

positively checked box

reaches the loading station.

Secondly, the number of

patient kits produced

simultaneously is

limited (to two

patients, at

present).

By necessity,

this puts limitations

on speed. The line

can process 55

blisters per minute but the

need for absolute security

control for this application means

the output rate is of secondary

importance.

The blisters are fed via magazines.

There is one magazine for the medication

and one for the placebo. The three

blisters are placed on a Transmodule and

a UV camera confirms that the product is

the correct one (active agent or placebo).

The data for identification of blisters

(patient, active agent, production and

expiration dates, lot number, code etc.)

are first printed on a label in the middle

line part, and then the label is applied.

Camera systems check the readability,

completeness and proper placement of

this label.

The Transmodule with the blisters

moves to the loading station. Two cartons

stand ready on another Transmodule rail

system. These cartons have already

been erected (crash-lock bottom or flat

blank) and labelled. Camera systems

have checked the identifying markings.

Cartons of the two row format have a

partition.

Once filled

When both patient kits are completely

filled, they are closed. In the same

section of the line, the outer carton is

erected from the flat-lying blank, glued

and brought into the last sub-machine by

a vacuum conveyor for filling. There, a

TLM-F2 robot places a piece of

cardboard inside the carton at the

bottom, picks up patient kits and places

them in the carton. The filling process is

completed with the placement of a

piece of cardboard on top of the patient

kit in the carton.

Leaflets are accurate

Folding leaflet machine builder B3Servis

has grown its business in patient leaflet

instructions printing by switching code

reader systems to comply with the

latest GS1 recommendations for the

The company has upgraded from the

existing laser-based system that can only

read 1-D codes to an image-based

system, which gives them the ability to

check 2-D codes on a high speed folding

machine. The folding machine processes

up to 30,000 pieces per hour with a flyby

speed of approximately three metres

per second.

Instruction leaflets handled by B3Servis

for the Slovenian market also come in

different sizes and the codes are

positioned differently depending on size.

The reader therefore needs to support

multiple configurations on the leaflets. In

an effort to establish correct reads, it was

Operator input is now simplified on the machines

Patient instruction leaflets need to be checked

often necessary to set the exact position

of the tape in front of the readers. The

company then installed DataMan fixedmount

barcode readers from Cognex to

address these code reading challenges.

One of the advantages of using these

fixed-mount readers is its ability to read

both 1-D and 2-D codes at the same

time. The system is capable of checking

older versions of leaflets with 1-D codes

and also newer versions with 2-D codes.

To support varying leaflet positions and

sizes, DataMan barcode readers provide

an easy alternative with an integrated

aimer light and a large view field of view.

Because instructions are printed on both

sides of the leaflet, two readers are

positioned to read both sides, top and

bottom, simultaneously. In case of a

match to the reference codes, they output

a digital signal.

The top reader and the trigger sensor

are movable to cover positions of

different leaflet formats. Operators set up

the top reader and sensor to point to the

code but then all they have to do is start

the system which then automatically

checks leaflets against a reference code.

In the case of a wrong, missing or

damaged code, the system stops the

machine.

At the same time, statistics are sent to

the PC giving the production manager an

overview of the system’s performance.

The DataMan barcode reader is flexible

And the customers of B3Servis have

been delighted with the improvements as

it has made for a more streamlined

operation. “With the new system, the

work order can be entered into the server

immediately and the operator only has to

select the required one,” explains director

Machine vision is vital

In adhering to the new EU regulations on falsified medicines, pharmaceutical manufacturers need to factor in

the importance of machine vision as this is the only way to meet the standards proposed by the European

Stakeholder Model, says Omron Industrial Automation

Faced with the growing and substantial

threat of falsified medicines penetrating

the European market, the European

Stakeholder Model – or ESM – was set

up to develop a safe, cost effective and

partnership based pan-European

medicines verification system to

combat falsified medicines and ensure

patient safety.

The ESM partners include various

pharmaceutical manufacturers, suppliers

and wholesalers throughout the EU

supply chain and it has developed an

end-to-end medicine verification solution,

consisting of four key data elements, to

combat the entry of falsified medicine.

This verification system plays a pivotal

role in aiding manufacturers to adhere to

the 2011 EU Falsified Medicines Directive

(FMD) which requires manufacturers to

apply safety features to verify the

authenticity and identity of individual

packs of medication, which will be

mandatory by 2017.

To drive implementation of the FMD, a

consultation has been undertaken to

define the characteristics and

specifications of a unique authentic pack

identifier. While these findings, which will

come under a Delegated Act, are not

anticipated until 2014, it is highly likely

that it will include the adoption of a

DataMatrix barcode. Furthermore, the

verification system proposed by the ESM

features a DataMatrix code carrying four

range which offer printed text inspection

and barcode verification.

“To ensure compliancy is met we are

working with pharmaceutical

software which will offer them the

assurances needed,” explains Dan

Rossek, product marketing manager,

sensing, safety and vision at Omron.

“As a company, we continually review our

development strategy to ensure our

products are optimised to meet the

changing needs of manufacturers.”

Omron’s Xpectia is built upon

well-established software algorithms

providing robust and reliable text and

barcode verification solutions. “As well as

performance, the Xpectia heralds a new

era of usability, providing customisable

intuitive user interfaces and simple

meet the risk assessment needs of all

sectors of the pharmaceutical industry.

“That means delivering the highest

possible levels of detection to

manufacturers of ethical, generic and

OTC products alike,” he says.

“Speed of operation was also essential

and we’ve also studied ways to minimise

downtime and allow manufacturers to

increase their input through rapid start-up

and changeover features.”

One company quick to see the

commercial advantages of this philosophy

was contract manufacturer Sanico NV in

Belgium, where the installation of four

Insight PH detectors has helped boost

tablet production by 100%. Operating

around the clock, the units have already

proved their worth.

“We were impressed by the highly

intuitive user interface and streamlined

GMP design,” says production manager

at Sanico Wim Roelants. “This makes it

much easier to disassemble for cleaning

and maintenance.”

Capable of checking up to 30,000

tablets per minute, the Insight PH

detector can be used on the fastest

production lines, and is available with a

choice of aperture sizes, for applications

requiring greater levels of detection

of minute metallic particles at slower

line speeds.

The investment in Lock equipment is

part of Sanico’s continuous drive to

improve quality standards for its global

customer base, giving them the

reassurance of effective contaminant

detection across the whole of its tablet

manufacturing operation.

Combo offers space savings

Multipix Imaging is specifying

the latest A5 thermal imaging

camera from FLIR for use in

combination with Halcon

machine vision software as a

powerful solution for all

process and packaging line

users including the food

industry, cosmetics and

electronics sectors.

One of the common

obstacles encountered in

implementing automation in

process plants and on

packaging lines is a distinct

lack of space, which is why

size was a major factor when

Multipix was sourcing a

suitable infrared thermal

imaging camera to partner with

Halcon software. “Not only is

the FLIR A5 extremely

compact and good value for

money, it also offers the

plug-and-play compatibility of

a GigE Vision interface, which

means we can link directly to

Halcon without any need for a

separate frame grabber,”

explains Multipix director,

Julie Busby.

Multipix believes automated

infrared radiation imaging

offers a vast potential for

improving a host of industrial

production applications,

including process monitoring

and control, and quality

assurance. For instance, take

a robotic gluing operation on a

clay-coated paperboard or

plain corrugated packaging

line. Using FLIR thermal

imaging technology it is now

possible for a camera to detect

glue beads and verify seams.

“Before now, this was virtually

impossible because adhesives

for the packaging industry are

almost always clear or opaque,

making them difficult to view

using standard vision cameras

as these require a contrast

between materials,” says Busby.

FLEXI LOOP: THE CLEVER WAY TO CONNECT SAFETY

SENSORS TOGETHER

Flexi Loop meets the demand for a cost-effective way to cascade safety

switches and sensors while also supporting diagnostics.Regardless of the

manufacturer, any combination of up to 32 safety switches and safety

sensors with OSSD outputs can be connected over 900m, guaranteeing

the continuous diagnosis of all door switches, e-stops and sensors. Used

with the Flexi Soft safety controller, the entire safety application can be

www.sick.co.uk


A standard camera in the visible

spectrum cannot detect the glue

gap as there is no contrast

Conversely, infrared

radiation is emitted by all

objects at temperatures above

absolute zero. FLIR cameras

convert that infrared radiation

into a visual image that depicts

thermal variations across an

object or process.

Ultimately, temperature is used

to replace mechanical methods

of inspection and testing.

A thermal image can easily

detect incorrectly sealed

boxes. It can also detect the

www.machineryupdate.co.uk


vision

Halcon imaging software analysing camera data, indicated glue bead

in red and missing glue area in blue

correct positioning of glue

spots and indicate failed boxes

to be removed from the line.

Furthermore, a pass/fail

process can be implemented

that sounds an alarm in the

event of pre-defined failures,

thus helping prevent

unscheduled downtime or the

introduction of poor quality

products into distribution.

Similarly, because many

manufacturers place more

adhesive on their packages

than needed for insurance

purposes, the use of such a

system allows tighter adhesive

specifications and therefore

reduced material costs.

Using the measurement

tools in Halcon, the list of

potential benefits is expanded

even further, says Multipix.

For instance, it is possible to

not only check the presence

and integrity of a continuous

glue bead, but also its position,

width, height, straightness and

more – this can all be achieved

within milliseconds. If there is a

problem with the glue gun, for

example, this feedback-based

system can stop the process

before an entire batch of

packaging is completed

incorrectly and which has to

be subsequently scrapped.

The system can also help

identify trends for maintenance

purposes. Incorrect bead size,

position and occasional gaps

can be detected and recorded,

permitting scheduled

preventative maintenance

instead of unscheduled

corrective maintenance and

the associated production

downtime this incurs.

Among additional

capabilities of the Halcon-FLIR

solution are pattern matching,

grading applications and

adhesive temperature

checking as many types of

glue only activate within upper

and lower temperature bands.

Ease-of-use is another

principal factor likely to score

well. Using Halcon’s Image

Acquisition Assistant, plugging

in a FLIR A-Series camera will

prompt the user to ‘detect’

and ‘connect’. Two clicks

are all that’s needed to get up

and running.

“The use of FLIR thermal

imaging for industrial

automation projects could

potentially be revelatory in

many applications,” says Julie

Busby. “It is even possible

to combine thermal and

3D vision cameras in the

same system.

“This way, data from the

former can overlay data from

the latter,” she continues. “The

result is a powerful solution

that can monitor glue beads

and seals using infrared, and

deploy 3D vision for shape and

content checking.”

Retailer demands

real time barcodes

As the French hypermarket

giant Leclerc demands that

all secondary packaging

from its suppliers meets

increased traceability

standards by the end of

2013, major brands

everywhere are considering

the implications according

to coding and marking

specialist Markem-Imaje,

an Accredited Solution

Partner of GS1.

From 2014 it will no

longer be sufficient to code

only primary packaging with

dynamic manufacturing

information such as best

before end dates. All

secondary packaging will

have to include shelf life

information and traceability

data that are typically

provided via a GS1-128

barcode as well as the

product identification data

previously provided by the

less complex ITF14 barcode.

Leclerc is now insisting

that all secondary packaging

from its suppliers must meet

these revised standards by

the end of 2013 – for

manufacturers this means

that barcode information

must now be printed at the

point of packing their

product and not pre-printed

at the case manufacturer as

typically happens today.

And, with this precedent set,

it is now widely expected

Martin Bailey of Markem-Imaje

that other principal retailers

will follow suit, says Martin

Bailey, UK operations

manager at Markem.

Yet many product

manufacturers are currently

using coding equipment not

suited to printing these

higher resolution GS1-128

barcodes on demand.

Historically, most

manufacturers have used

either brown or white

preprinted corrugate for their

secondary packaging cases

and an inkjet printer has

typically been used to print

the single ITF14 barcode to

achieve product

identification at ANSI grade

verification level D

(American National

Standard Institute). This new

requirement to print the

more detailed GS1-128 EAN

barcode however, requires

the code to be printed at a

higher resolution achieving a

minimum of ANSI Grade C.

Investing in the right

technology to address this

coding change is now a

critical decision for retail

brands to protect their

bottom line. And it is one

which is becoming

increasingly urgent.

But it is not enough simply

With thousands of

units operational

around the world,

the Markem-Imaje

2200 delivers

GS1 compliant

ANSI grade A/B

barcodes at even

the highest

application

speeds, printing

codes on up to

125 packs per

minute regardless

of data complexity

or content

to code the right information

onto secondary packaging.

Manufacturers will need to

ensure the minimum quality

standards are met to ensure

the code remains readable

throughout its journey

through the supply chain.

On-line barcode validation

accompanied by an off-line

barcode verification process

is now accepted as best

practice. The risk is that if

unverified codes lead to a

single case failing a coding

check after leaving the

manufacturer, an entire

consignment of goods may

be rejected.

The possibility of financial

penalties is also very real.

In fact it is estimated by

GS1 UK that the cost of

poor barcode quality in the

UK is in the region of £500m

to £1bn every year.

Manufacturers must

therefore seek a coding

supplier who can provide

not just the right coding

equipment but a complete

package, including

networking software and

validation solutions that

match their specific

requirements.

Labelling and coding company

Codeology has been

equipment which has been

demonstrated in this project for

Great Foods’ new factory. And

with an initial lead time of 10-

12 weeks, the company was

able to deliver all the machines

and conveyors in just seven.

Project manager at Great

Foods Alex Lapushner

approached Codeology to

scope of the project quickly

grew as Lapushner discovered

the other equipment that

Great Foods’ outer case labelling

operation has been automated

Codeology could supply.

The brief called for three

complete low risk packing

lines. Each line included an

infeed conveyor, recirculating

packing conveyor, a case

sealer, an outer case print and

apply machine and an

accumulator conveyor. One

of these lines – the bulk

production line – also included

a top down product labelling

print and apply machine.

“As we design and

manufacture all of our

machinery in the UK, we were

able to modify certain aspects

of the equipment to ensure

Great Foods achieved

maximum efficiency from the

installation,” explains Chris

Boswell, sales and service

engineer at Codeology.

All of the equipment for this

project was manufactured by

Codeology, with the exception

of the Soco case sealers

which were sourced via a

partner company.

“With limited space and such

a tight schedule, not having to

rely on outside suppliers was

crucial in ensuring the right

solutions were being provided

in the right time frame,”

explains Boswell.

Safety solution allows

company compliance

The new Sick Flexi

Loop provides a

simple connectivity

solution for safety

and plant design

engineers to meet

recent regulatory

changes. Sick says

it offers new

dimensions of

scalability,

diagnostic insight

and I/O connection

capacity within a

compact space and

at a very

competitive cost,

and is ideal when

upgrading

automation,

robotics and processes.

“It has been fairly common

practise to connect interlocks

and other safety contacts in

series but today’s engineers

are faced with increasing

demands to meet PLe levels of

safety using the convenience

of series connection,” explains

Dr Martin Kidman, safety

specialist for Sick UK.

“However, changes to key

safety standards means that

traditional hard wired series

connection of switches using

volt free electro-mechanical

contacts is no longer advisable

in higher risk applications.

“Having to accommodate all

the equipment, cabling and

connections required to

comply can add to the cost

and cause space problems,”

he continues. “The new Sick

Flexi Loop permits the series

connection of dual channel

devices, while allowing high

diagnostic coverage and

eliminating the potential for so

called fault masking.”

It is a fully open system and

can accommodate standard

sensor/switch devices from

any vendor. As a field I/O

system, it allows a designer to

connect any safety system in

series with another without

any compromise of the safety

system performance to PLe

integrity.

With a capacity to cascade

up to 32 safety sensors/

switches on one loop and to

create up to eight separate

loops, the IP67-rated Sick

Flexi Loop will provide up to

256 sensors on eight dual

channel inputs, reducing the

clutter of traditional connections.

The Flexi Loop is simple to

install as a fully cascadable

system, using standard cable

with M12/5-pin connectors. No

special connections or

shielded cables are required.

The Sick Flexi Loop

provides intelligent built-in

diagnostics without the need

for a field bus or complex

network addressing, resulting

in a decentralised costeffective

solution to monitoring

the status of each safety

sensor/switch connected to it.

As well as indicating which

device has switched, and why,

LED indicators on each node

give live status information,

and avoid referring back to a

desk-based control point.

This diagnostic capability is

an advance on Sick’s widely

used Flexi Soft controller

platform which allows status

monitoring at the controller or

via the HMI/PLC interface.

Beware machine changes

If substantial changes are made in upgrading existing equipment, any existing Declarations of Conformity

under the Machinery Directive may become invalid which may require a new conformity assessment

The functionality or performance

of a machine will also be

changed if it is interlinked with

other equipment as part of an

assembly, explains Paul Laidler.

This is a common oversight

machinery end-users make,

as they do not realise that this

creates a complex assembly

that must be CE marked.

However, machinery

modification remains a grey

area as the Machinery Directive

contains no specific guidelines

to advise machinery owners

when a change is considered

‘substantial’, and they are

consequently left to make their

own conclusion.

There are two key areas of

guidance to help machinery endusers

identify if the modifications

they have made will be

considered substantial by the

regulatory authorities. This

includes the Health & Safety

Executive (HSE) which states

that if changes “are very

substantial (e.g. significant new

hazards and risks are introduced

or new methods of control of the

machine replace those

previously provided, such as

computer control of a previous

manual machine) it may amount

to being considered a ‘new’

machine (or new assembly), for

which you must undertake

conformity assessment”.

The HSE goes on to state

that even if changes to

machinery are not substantial,

such as refurbishment, the

owner must still ensure that it

continues to meet the

requirements of the Provision

and Use of Work Equipment

Regulations (PUWER), as well

as any other requirements

which may also apply to the

product, such as Electricity at

Work Regulations, the Pressure

Systems Safety Regulations,

Dangerous Substances and

Explosive Atmospheres

Regulations etc.

To help identify what

constitutes a ‘substantial

change’, the HSE also outlines

the different situations involving

modifications to machinery

where the requirements of the

Machinery Directive are likely to

apply and action must be taken:

• Machinery is modified so

much that it should be

considered as ‘new’

machinery.

An example is the fitting of a

computer control to a manually

operated machine

• Machinery refurbishment

with a different safety

package

• An existing assembly of

machines is modified

• Machinery modified before

it is first put into service.

For machinery that is sold to

an importer or a distributor

who then modifies the

machinery before it is put

into service for the first time.

A second reference guide is

the CEOC International

document ‘Modification of

Machinery in Service – Guide for

Inspection’. This is the only

document I have seen which has

explicit modification guidelines to

help machinery owners decide

what action to take. The good

news is that it is also a relatively

short document that gives some

incisive answers to the best

approach to take.

As well as including an outline

of the relevant legal aspects,

the document gives clear

guidance on what constitutes a

‘non substantial’ and a

‘substantial’ modification,

helping the machinery owner to

identify the correct path for

End users often upgrade existing equipment to meet market pressures

them. It also outlines a useful the

procedure for the modification

of machines that are both stand

alone and within an assembly.

It defines substantial


modifications in the following

situations:

• If the original machinery has

not been used as initial

machinery, but as a source

of parts in order to make

something new, or if the

original machinery is not

identifiable any more (e.g. it

is completely “stripped down”

and only few original parts

remain).

• If the originally intended

function and/or use has been

changed by this modification

in a way that new or other

hazards are created which

need a complete new risk

assessment of the machinery

(e.g. the modification of a

lifting table for use as vehicle

servicing lift)

• If machinery, intended to

work in normal atmosphere,

is transferred into dangerous

environments (e.g. explosive

atmosphere, underground

work), or into places with

specific requirements

(e.g. in hospitals)

• If the intended user group for

modified machinery

changes, in particular in case

of specific machinery for

experts (e.g. in laboratories)

If original machinery is

assembled with other

machinery to an integrated

unit, functioning in this

combination as one new

whole machine (see Annex

pt.2.2 Assembly-“Complex

combination”),

The CEOC International

guidelines therefore leave no

doubt as to what constitutes a

‘substantial’ change and the

action that should be taken. If

your machine is shown to have

had a substantial change made,

a full CE marking and PUWER

assessment must be completed

before that machine can be

returned to service.
