PPMA matters<br />

Facing the<br />

health debate<br />

together<br />

Rolling conveyor technology<br />

in the process flow<br />

Grant Jamieson<br />

CHAIRMAN PPMA GROUP OF ASSOCIATIONS<br />

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

The food sector is very busy facing pressures and<br />

challenges all round just now. The whole obesity and<br />

sugar debate rages on with a sugar tax threatened and<br />

as the doors to Foodex <strong>2016</strong> open in <strong>April</strong> (our preview starts<br />

on page 20), designers and manufacturers of food and also its<br />

supply chain, are being forced to innovate with new solutions.<br />

Having recently attended ProSweets and ISM in Cologne,<br />

I can say with some certainty that the industry is very much<br />

alive and confident. Evidently there is a great deal of work in<br />

bringing together food preferences with the health benefits of<br />

some or all of the ingredients to make a suitable proposition.<br />

Our industry has been world<br />

leading in process and also<br />

packaging innovations for years<br />

The sweets and snacks line-up provided numerous<br />

alternatives and offers for nutrition-conscious consumers.<br />

These included vegan and sugar-reduced chocolate, lactosefree<br />

biscuits and sugar-reduced filled chocolates. New trend<br />

themes at ISM included Halal, Kosher, organic, Fairtrade, sugarfree,<br />

allergy friendly, functional, artisan, private label, limited<br />

edition, impulse and sharing packs, vegetarian and vegan.<br />

Nuts, got their own section, and chocolate was very well<br />

represented. There were lots of offerings using nuts and coatings<br />

or incorporating them to get the health benefits, but processed<br />

in a way to make them more appealing, more consumer-friendly<br />

and easier to pack and carry while retaining freshness etc.<br />

So the industry is challenged to innovate and meet the newer<br />

more testing expectations now set before them.<br />

As a diverse trade association, the PPMA members covered<br />

in the pages of this magazine each issue, love a technical<br />

challenge. Our industry has been world leading in process and<br />

packaging innovations for generations and this next chapter<br />

is another one we look forward to.<br />

So, just because it hasn’t been done before, doesn’t necessarily<br />

mean it can’t be done in the future. And this is true across all<br />

food categories and beyond.<br />

This issue is full of the latest developments and on page 36,<br />

you’ll find the start of our 28 page meat, fish and proteins<br />

feature which covers a whole host of technologies developed<br />

for this market, but which can be also be transferred to others.<br />

Machinery that has answered the producers’ needs for something<br />

new, as a process or as a packaging choice, is right up our street. n<br />

just a few, easy-to-fit components<br />

adjusts perfectly to the space available<br />

has a flexible, three-dimensional layout<br />

dependable transport operations at temperatures<br />

between 4° and 30 °C<br />

saves on energy due to rolling friction<br />

saves investment costs, and also operating,<br />

service and maintenance costs<br />

PPMA Total Show is<br />

powering ahead to be<br />

better than ever event<br />

Item-level serialisation is the issue<br />

Last milestone passed<br />

on the way to the EU<br />

FMD being enacted<br />

The recent publication of the<br />

delegated Regulation <strong>2016</strong>/161<br />

associated with the EU Falsified<br />

Medicines Directive (FMD) sets<br />

February 9, 2019 as the date<br />

by which the vast majority of<br />

prescription and some overthe-counter<br />

(OTC) medicines<br />

dispensed or sold within the 28<br />

EU Member States must meet<br />

the requirements of the Acts.<br />

Failure to comply is serious,<br />

as it will render affected<br />

products illegal for sale.<br />

It is the requirement for<br />

item-level serialisation, more<br />

than any other, which is<br />

exercising those responsible<br />

for compliance in the wider<br />

supplier community as well as<br />

in the industry itself.<br />

• See page 10 for analysis<br />

The PPMA Total Show<br />

<strong>2016</strong> this September<br />

will be bigger and better<br />

than the 2013 event following<br />

a host of new contract signings<br />

across industry sectors.<br />

Taking place from<br />

27 – 29 September at the NEC,<br />

Birmingham, this year’s show<br />

will see more space and more<br />

exhibitors gracing Hall 5. The<br />

show incorporates three major<br />

exhibition brands: PPMA,<br />

Pakex and Interphex and takes<br />

place every three years in place<br />

of that year’s PPMA Show.<br />

In essence, the exhibition is<br />

a larger version of the annual<br />

PPMA Show that includes<br />

packaging materials as well<br />

as machinery to become<br />

a total production line<br />

event. From components to<br />

materials, from processing<br />

to packaging machinery,<br />

the three-day show will offer<br />

visitors a comprehensive view<br />

of what manufacturing looks<br />

like in <strong>2016</strong>.<br />

Group exhibition manager<br />

David Harrison is delighted<br />

that the exhibition is on<br />

course to offer visitors a mix<br />

of machinery for the food and<br />

drink industries as well as the<br />

pharmaceuticals sector.<br />

Packaging Automation<br />

(PA) has received<br />

national recognition<br />

for its long established<br />

apprenticeship scheme as its<br />

employee, electrical engineer<br />

Christopher Eckert, was<br />

named the UK’s top apprentice<br />

at the Semta Skills awards.<br />

PA has trained more than<br />

100 apprentices since the<br />

scheme started 30 years ago<br />

with former apprentices now<br />

holding director, management<br />

and team leader roles in<br />

the current business. The<br />

company needs to continually<br />

recruit to meet growing<br />

demand for its equipment and<br />

has struggled to find engineers<br />

who have the specialist<br />

skills required for the design<br />

and manufacture of food<br />

packaging machinery.<br />

10 MACHINERY UPDATE MARCH/APRIL <strong>2016</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

News<br />

Three years and counting<br />

before FMD compliance<br />

As the last major milestone is passed en route to enactment of the EU Falsified Medicines Directive<br />

(FMD), Machinery Update talks to key players about what this means in practice<br />

The publication in<br />

February of the delegated<br />

Regulation <strong>2016</strong>/161<br />

associated with the EU FMD<br />

sets February 9, 2019 as the<br />

date by which the vast majority<br />

of prescription and some OTC<br />

(over-the-counter) medicines<br />

dispensed or sold within the 28<br />

EU Member States must meet<br />

the requirements of the Acts.<br />

Failure to comply will render<br />

affected products illegal for sale.<br />

UNIQUE PACK IDENTITY<br />

Among these requirements<br />

is the need for every pack to<br />

carry a unique identity in a<br />

standardised format that can<br />

be verified at any point from<br />

manufacture to patient. “It is<br />

this requirement, item-level<br />

serialisation, more than any<br />

other that is exercising those<br />

responsible for compliance, in<br />

the wider supplier community<br />

as well as in the industry<br />

itself,” says Craig Stobie,<br />

director – global sector<br />

management and development<br />

at Domino Printing Sciences.<br />

Craig Stobie is director - global<br />

sector management and<br />

development at Domino Printing<br />

Enactment will ostensibly<br />

mark the culmination of a<br />

decade-long journey for many<br />

in the industry, a journey<br />

which began with the legal<br />

proposal put forward by the<br />

EU Commission in December<br />

2008. “At Domino, we have<br />

characterised item-level<br />

serialisation as the biggest<br />

challenge faced by the<br />

pharmaceutical industry in a<br />

generation and we believe that<br />

its ramifications will continue<br />

to be felt for some time beyond<br />

the compliance deadline,” says<br />

Stobie. “While manufacturers<br />

must become technically<br />

capable of producing<br />

serialised packs over the next<br />

three years, all the evidence<br />

suggests that productivity<br />

may be adversely impacted for<br />

some time beyond that.”<br />

SERIALISATION STEPS<br />

There are steps that can be<br />

taken now to mitigate the ‘side<br />

effects’ of serialisation but<br />

the extent of the impact will<br />

only become apparent when<br />

producers begin serialised<br />

production in earnest: for<br />

many this is still some time<br />

away, he says.<br />

It would be foolish to<br />

underestimate the amount of<br />

work still to be done ahead<br />

of the compliance deadline<br />

Manfred Minich is chief executive<br />

officer at Atlantic Zeiser<br />

and the occasional bout of<br />

serialisation fatigue can<br />

certainly be forgiven.<br />

Manufacturers, suppliers and<br />

other stakeholders recognise that<br />

no organisation can provide a<br />

complete solution singlehandedly<br />

But ceo of Atlantic Zeiser<br />

Manfred Minich believes any<br />

company that has not yet<br />

started the FMD journey is in<br />

real danger of running out of<br />

time. “From our experience<br />

from past projects, the<br />

majority of big international<br />

pharma companies know<br />

what needs to be done<br />

but they still haven’t<br />

implemented all relevant<br />

serialisation workflows,<br />

especially on the enterprise<br />

level,” he says. “However<br />

a multitude of smaller<br />

and medium-sized pharma<br />

manufacturers have been<br />

procrastinating on this issue<br />

for a long time.”<br />

Minich believes the main<br />

reason for this, among others,<br />

is the fact that the directive<br />

was more than 30 pages long<br />

containing some complex<br />

requirements without spelling<br />

out the technical implications.<br />

“Although the technologies<br />

that are necessary to generate,<br />

print and verify codes are<br />

usually common, the reliable<br />

interchange with a database<br />

solution that can administer<br />

workflows and guarantee<br />

the uniqueness of the codes<br />

and safety features seems to<br />

be undiscovered territory for<br />

most players,” he says.<br />

A POSITIVE JOURNEY<br />

Stobie thinks that even though<br />

there is still a long way to go<br />

for some, there are some real<br />

positives to be drawn from<br />

the journey so far. Firstly, the<br />

fact that serialisation will be<br />

a significant line of defence in<br />

protecting all EU Citizens from<br />

the trade in illicit medicines<br />

and secondly, the way the<br />

industry is pulling together to<br />

produce a cohesive response<br />

to the legislation.<br />

“Manufacturers, suppliers<br />

and other stakeholders<br />

recognise that no organisation<br />

can provide a solution<br />

singlehandedly, prompting<br />

a sharing of knowledge and<br />

resource unlike anything we<br />

at Domino have experienced,”<br />

he says. “This spirit of<br />

partnership bodes well for<br />

the sector as it addresses the<br />

challenge of serialisation and,<br />

we hope, far beyond that.”<br />

New Machinery<br />

Automatic magazine loading<br />

brings cardboard blank gains<br />

Cermex, the case packing<br />

division of Gebo Cermex,<br />

has introduced FlexiLoad<br />

to handle fully automatic<br />

magazine loading for any<br />

high speed case packing<br />

system. This patent pending<br />

solution is designed to<br />

improve working conditions,<br />

and enable operators to devote<br />

their time to other, higher<br />

added value tasks.<br />

Consisting of a 6-axis robot,<br />

a universal gripping tool<br />

and PC-based software,<br />

FlexiLoad can handle<br />

regular slotted containers<br />

(RSCs), wraparound blanks<br />

or trays. It can also enhance<br />

the ergonomics of both new<br />

equipment and also existing<br />

installed machinery, through<br />

a retrofit process.<br />

By automating a task that<br />

requires repetitive efforts<br />

by the operator, FlexiLoad<br />

makes a real improvement to<br />

working conditions and to the<br />

productivity of the line, says<br />

Cermex. Such an improvement<br />

can, in certain countries, lead<br />

to a reduction in mandatory<br />

contributions to state health<br />

insurance, which are indexed<br />

Fortress 3rd LHP_<strong>MU</strong> 19/11/2014 08:47 Page 1<br />

FlexiLoad is compatible with any type of medium to high speed case packer with outputs above 25 boxes per minute<br />

on the number and length of<br />

interruptions for sick leave.<br />

Going from spending 50%<br />

to 80% of their time to less<br />

than 10% (replacing empty<br />

pallets with full pallets) on<br />

stocking up the case packing<br />

system, operators are available<br />

for working on other, higher<br />

added value tasks.<br />

For example, the operator<br />

has more time for performing<br />

quality control operations or<br />

for sample picking.<br />

The positive return on<br />

investment in terms of<br />

organisational improvement<br />

and of productivity gains<br />

comes in addition to the<br />

100% industrial ROI in only<br />

one year for a line operating<br />

continuously round the clock.<br />

FlexiLoad can also<br />

perform additional functions<br />

depending on the needs<br />

of industrial clients, such<br />

as providing a system for<br />

shredding the straps around<br />

the bundles of RSC blanks,<br />

so as to reduce the volume<br />

of the waste, or incorporating<br />

a magazine on wheels for<br />

storing recovered interlayer<br />

sheets.<br />

Loma Systems has launched<br />

a biometric finger print access<br />

device which has been specially<br />

designed for its range of CW3<br />

quality assurance & technical<br />

The new device automatically<br />

Following the acquisition<br />

of Swedish manufacturer<br />

effervescent tablets will now<br />

be sold worldwide under<br />

the umbrella brand Romaco<br />

Siebler and three different<br />

tube filling systems in different<br />

of 120 tubes per minute, the<br />

Siebler MF 120 is designed for<br />

very high production speeds.<br />

The mid-range MF 70 is<br />

currently the top-selling model<br />

The Siebler MF 120 tube filling machine for effervescent tablets is available<br />

tablets are first guided through<br />

up to eight channels, where<br />

they are counted still lying<br />

flat and then fed to the filling<br />

station. They then pass through<br />

filling tubes which rotate at<br />

high speed. The resulting forces<br />

cause the tablets to stand up<br />

automatically and slide upright<br />

into the waiting tubes, which<br />

are also rotating quickly.<br />

The suction effect of this<br />

rotation creates air cushions,<br />

which centre the tablets and<br />

prevent them from hitting<br />

the tube walls. The fragile<br />

effervescent tablets are thus<br />

processed gently.<br />

New Machinery<br />

High speed print and apply is<br />

available, even at entry level<br />

Logopak International<br />

has extended its product<br />

range with a new<br />

high speed print and apply<br />

machine for case and also<br />

pack labelling.<br />

The new Logopak 300<br />

is a cost effective solution<br />

for simple, high speed<br />

applications but the price<br />

point does not mean that<br />

quality has been compromised.<br />

The development team in<br />

Germany took the opportunity<br />

to improve or simplify every<br />

aspect of the machine; with<br />

a particular emphasis on<br />

improving ease of use, says<br />

the company.<br />

Speeds of up to 80 packs a<br />

minute can be achieved on<br />

this uncomplicated labeller.<br />

Just the three most common<br />

applicators – top, front and side<br />

are offered which makes its<br />

availability much quicker, too.<br />

The new design is clean,<br />

hygienic, curved and<br />

sleek, and meets the latest<br />

machinery safety directives.<br />

The reduced footprint<br />

maximises the available space<br />

on a line, and the 15in display<br />

is mounted on the machine<br />

Performance and speed are offered by the Logopak 300 print and apply unit<br />

itself for optimal positioning.<br />

The display shows current<br />

label view and will give the<br />

operator immediate fault<br />

diagnosis messages on screen.<br />

Meanwhile, a single plate<br />

allows easy access to the<br />

internal drive system for<br />

maintenance while the height<br />

adjustable support frame is<br />

now standard to allow for<br />

variable height labelling.<br />

The more ergonomic design<br />

has simplified the consumable<br />

web path, with threading<br />

directions engraved onto<br />

the machine body, openended<br />

rollers, and tool-less<br />

collapsible label rewind<br />

for fast, easy threading.<br />

Inside core gripping of the<br />

consumables means there are<br />

no drive location pegs to line<br />

up, and a new quick-release<br />

aluminium mandrel disc<br />

makes changing the 400m<br />

media rolls even quicker.<br />

“Standard features that<br />

have always made Logopak’s<br />

machines stand out have<br />

been preserved in the 300,<br />

including matched labels<br />

and ribbons, refurbishable<br />

printheads for easy ‘plug<br />

and play’ replacement in less<br />

than 30 seconds, and the ‘test<br />

label’ button to print a label<br />

for documentation or audit<br />

purposes,” confirms UK<br />

sales director at Logopak<br />

Howard Jagger.<br />

The new printheads utilise<br />

the latest long life HD print<br />

plates from Rohm. They are<br />

available in 100 or 150mm<br />

widths and are compatible<br />

with older PL3 printheads.<br />

The impressive speed is due<br />

to the label roll having a<br />

new perfectly pre-tensioned<br />

mechanical unwind while<br />

the barcode label has<br />

excellent print quality as<br />

it is printed ‘picket fence’<br />

fashion, as per GS1 guidelines,<br />

form it into a sheet, ready to<br />

pass through gauge rolls which<br />

achieve the chosen thickness,<br />

Jenton Ariana is expanding<br />

its range of products for<br />

food manufacturers this<br />

year as vistors will see.<br />

In addition to its range of<br />

seal testers for gas flushed<br />

thermoformed packs (typically<br />

for bakery), the company has<br />

developed and sold several<br />

seal testers for ready meals<br />

applications with random<br />

infeed up to 140 per minute.<br />

“We see this market growing<br />

because of the conflicting<br />

demands of long shelf life<br />

delivered by barrier films<br />

with perfect seals contrasting<br />

with the need for easy peel,”<br />

says Richard Little, managing<br />

director of Jenton.<br />

For <strong>2016</strong>, Jenton Ariana has<br />

also introduced a new high<br />

speed pack stacker which has<br />

already been sold for food as<br />

well as non-food applications.<br />

It can be combined with auto<br />

banding for shelf loading/easy<br />

handling applications.<br />

The design team at Jenton<br />

has also been busy with<br />

revising the equipment offered<br />

for the picking and placing<br />

Preview<br />

Latest automated case<br />

loading methods shown<br />

Increased handling<br />

capabilities, flexibility<br />

and output have pushed<br />

automation to the forefront<br />

for many food manufacturers<br />

which is why Pacepacker<br />

Services will showcase new<br />

automated case loading<br />

systems at the show.<br />

Three new inventions using<br />

Fanuc and Festo robots will<br />

demonstrate how Pacepacker<br />

has successfully automated<br />

laborious manual retail case/<br />

crate loading tasks found in<br />

many food factories.<br />

With a fast ROI, the<br />

Cartesian case loader cell can<br />

pick and place an array of<br />

packaged foods – from trays<br />

of fresh meat to punnets of<br />

fruit – with precision and<br />

efficiency. The robot cell<br />

incorporates a Cartesian style<br />

robot and a multi-purpose<br />

Fanuc M20-iA/35M articulated<br />

robot arm to harmoniously<br />

load and palletise retail crates<br />

simultaneously.<br />

“For the first time we will<br />

reveal to Foodex visitors two<br />

different options for case<br />

loading – using Cartesian<br />

and articulated systems.<br />

Using robots from Fanuc/Festo, Pacepacker is automating onerous tasks<br />

By bringing these two robot<br />

types together we are showing<br />

that there is more than one<br />

way to achieve the same end<br />

result,” says Paul Wilkinson,<br />

Pacepacker’s business<br />

development manager.<br />

Incorporating Festo<br />

mechatronic motion, the<br />

twin-axis Cartesian case<br />

loader robot picks individual<br />

products from a single line<br />

or entire layers and packs<br />

them into secondary trays or<br />

cases. Capable of speeds in<br />

the region of 120-180 packs<br />

per minute, the system allows<br />

users to pick and place with<br />

different accelerations,<br />

decelerations and an infinite<br />

number of positions which,<br />

says the company, proves that<br />

there are cost efficient options<br />

for high speed pick and place<br />

applications beyond a delta or<br />

six-axis robot.<br />

Installation News<br />

Flexible and gentle handling<br />

is a key ingredient for bakery<br />

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

At the New Jersey-based bakery, two F44 robots on the Schubert system fill the carton trays with product that has previously been packed in flow wrap bags<br />

Schubert has developed<br />

a TLM final-packaging<br />

system for individually<br />

packaging croissants and<br />

Danish pastries produced by<br />

International Delights in New<br />

Jersey, USA. Thanks to the<br />

Schubert scanner, the highly<br />

flexible system works in a way<br />

that is very gentle on these<br />

products as well as being able<br />

to handle other products and<br />

tray formats easily.<br />

Nine different layouts and<br />

approaches were developed<br />

with the customer before the<br />

ideal solution was found.<br />

For the most part, space<br />

requirements, ease of use<br />

and considerations regarding<br />

possible future products and<br />

packaging formats played<br />

an important role. As is quite<br />

common with American<br />

companies, the machines for<br />

manufacturing and packaging<br />

products were developed<br />

simultaneously. Both the<br />

space requirements for the<br />

Schubert system as well<br />

as the packaging process,<br />

including packaging speed,<br />

had to be altered several<br />

times in the project design<br />

phase and adapted to the<br />

changing parameters of the<br />

manufacturing process.<br />

The Schubert line, which<br />

eventually proved successful,<br />

receives the baked products –<br />

croissants, Danish pastries and<br />

pains au chocolat – from the<br />

cooling or freezing coils and<br />

places them on a conveyor belt<br />

at predetermined intervals<br />

with three F4 robots. This<br />

feeds the products into a flow<br />

wrapping machine.<br />

Subsequently, another<br />

robot distributes the packaged<br />

baked goods on two belts.<br />

The dual-lane transport<br />

reduces the belt speed of the<br />

Picker robots place the products on the belt at predetermined intervals<br />

line, so that a large amount of<br />

products can be packaged in a<br />

gentle manner. An F2 and an<br />

F3 robot are used to form the<br />

trays, while the F3 robot takes<br />

the flat tray blanks from the<br />

magazine and transfers them<br />

to the F2 robot. This leads the<br />

blanks over gluing nozzles,<br />

presses the blank through the<br />

folding unit and setting the<br />

finished erected carton tray on<br />

a Transmodul’s size part.<br />

Two F44 robots then fill<br />

the cardboard trays with the<br />

products packed in flow wrap<br />

bags or, optionally, unwrapped.<br />

DIFFERENT FORMATS<br />

There are two different<br />

packing formats for six- and<br />

twelve-packs. The twelve<br />

packs contain two layers of<br />

six products each, whereas<br />

the six packs are filled with<br />

only one layer consisting of<br />

six products. Two further

and position. Careful product<br />

handling is very important,<br />

especially for croissants,<br />

since pieces can easily break<br />

off if wrongly handled or if<br />

excessive gripper pressure<br />

affects their shape.<br />

“For the otherwise very<br />

traditional baked goods<br />

business, the Schubert<br />

machine, with its flexibility,<br />

its adaptability to changing<br />

market requirements and its<br />

gentle product handling, is<br />

a true milestone,” explains<br />

International Delights owner<br />

Spiro Sayegh. “And yes, we<br />

are already talking about the<br />

next line,” he says.<br />

Gentle product handling is achieved<br />

your carton<br />

F2 robots work together to<br />

close the flaps and their<br />

palletising is then completed<br />

on subsequent machines.<br />

The system concept<br />

was designed so that the<br />

packaging of the products<br />

could either be changed to<br />

clamshells (thermoformed<br />

plastic trays) or plastic boxes<br />

(for supplying to restaurants).<br />

This flexibility enables the<br />

customer to save space and<br />

to quickly adapt to changing<br />

market requirements, without<br />

having to purchase a new<br />

machine every time.<br />

packaging<br />

solution!<br />

MEETING NPD DEMAND<br />

“This is especially important<br />

in the baked goods sector,<br />

where retailers need to offer<br />

something new practically<br />

every month in order to survive<br />

against the competition,”<br />

explains Giorgio Calorio, sales<br />

engineer at Schubert.<br />

Through a combination of<br />

the Schubert scanner with the<br />

gripper system, gentle product<br />

handling can be combined<br />

with optimum quality control.<br />

This is especially important<br />

considering the variable size<br />

of the baked goods.<br />

During cooling after the<br />

baking process, which takes<br />

about an hour, the volume of<br />

goods can be difficult to control<br />

with precision. The scanner<br />

recognises if the product is<br />

markedly too large or too small,<br />

and it will not signal the product<br />

to the robot, so that its grippers<br />

will not pick it up. Damaged<br />

products are not packed either.<br />

Furthermore, products<br />

with only minor variations,<br />

which are within the specified<br />

tolerances, can nonetheless be<br />

picked up, since the scanner<br />

reports their exact shape, size<br />

The system incorporates features such as fibre optic sensors to detect the smallest of Jiffy bags of only 15mm high<br />

Due to a substantial<br />

increase in business<br />

at its Hams Hall site<br />

near Birmingham, arvato,<br />

one of the largest third-party<br />

logistics providers in Europe,<br />

has upgraded its handling<br />

process to improve accuracy<br />

and efficiency in the flow of<br />

picked goods.<br />

arvato has worked with<br />

Conveyor Systems Ltd (CSL)<br />

on several large projects<br />

over many years so when<br />

it expanded its direct-toconsumer<br />

fulfilment operations<br />

it looked to CSL for help.<br />

The logistics provider needed<br />

a partner to deliver a packing<br />

and sortation system that<br />

could help to effectively<br />

manage seasonal sales peaks<br />

in demand.<br />

TENDER PROCESS<br />

After a rigorous tender process,<br />

CSL was selected and its use<br />

of the latest 3D CAD Drawing<br />

software (to help visualise<br />

the system as a life-like<br />

representation at the arvato<br />

site) was key to meeting the<br />

brief and winning the contract.<br />

CSL’s brief was to combine<br />

packed consignments from<br />

two packing areas including<br />

special belt conveyors with<br />

over 36 integrated packing<br />

stations.<br />

All stations were fitted<br />

with a PC-based warehouse<br />

management system and<br />

despatch labellers, allowing<br />

parcels to be sorted into four<br />

despatch zones for separate<br />

carriers. The conveyor system<br />

can handle over 60 packages<br />

per minute of varying sizes<br />

and weights and a range of<br />

packaging types from poly<br />

bags, jiffy bags and various<br />

sizes of box containing<br />

diverse products, from 60g<br />

gauze bags up to a full case<br />

of specialist beers packed in<br />

glass bottles.<br />

To ensure sufficient gaps<br />

between packages on the<br />

conveyors prior to barcode<br />

checking and weighing, CSL<br />

designed a special solution<br />

where operatives place items<br />

on bespoke conveyor belts<br />

in clearly marked placement<br />

zones.<br />

To check and sort the wide<br />

variety of packed orders, the<br />

automated conveyor system<br />

uses an array of nine integrated<br />

barcode scanners capable<br />

of reading the labels placed<br />

anywhere on the visible sides<br />

and a checkweigher system to<br />

cross reference against actual<br />

weight measurements before<br />

items are fed onto a high speed<br />

sortation conveyor system.<br />

OPERATIVE ACCESS<br />

The sorter, based on a<br />

modular belt design, is<br />

situated at overhead height<br />

both to accommodate a<br />

fall on the chutes and to<br />

allow operatives access<br />

underneath. It has several<br />

lanes of despatch chutes<br />

each accumulating a buffer<br />

of packages and a ‘run-out’<br />

no-read/pack error chute at<br />

the end.<br />

help drive the continuous<br />

improvement program, with<br />

a focus on maintaining and<br />

improving the efficiency<br />

of the packaging lines.<br />

The requirement was to<br />

seamlessly upgrade the<br />

existing efficiency system<br />

and implement the new MES<br />

with minimum disruption to<br />

the production process, while<br />

also supporting the change<br />

of MRP. The MES project was<br />

very much functioning as the<br />

enabler solution to drive data<br />

in to and out of the newlyinstalled<br />

SAP system.<br />

Molson Coors was looking<br />

for a low risk, product based<br />

solution, so a clear mandate<br />

was provided to ensure the<br />

system used globally available<br />

and supportable commercial<br />

off the shelf software, which

The No. 1 for the Meat Industry<br />

Frankfurt am Main, 7 – 12. 5. <strong>2016</strong><br />

The project at Molson Coors transformed business processes and operations<br />

required little or no custom<br />

software development.<br />

Astec regularly utilises a<br />

broad network of partners<br />

across the globe that are<br />

often able to provide valuable<br />

resources to accelerate project<br />

delivery. In this instance,<br />

one of GE Digital’s key North<br />

American solution providers<br />

was able to support the<br />

project. This followed its close<br />

involvement with Molson<br />

Coors’ MES development<br />

throughout Canada and the<br />

USA over many years prior<br />

to this project.<br />

The packaging lines<br />

comprise equipment of<br />

varying ages and configurations<br />

with a range of different PLCs.<br />

The key efficiency KPIs<br />

delivered by the system<br />

similar to OEE (operational<br />

equipment effectiveness),<br />

focused on enabling the<br />

system to evaluate the status<br />

of each machine within each<br />

packaging line correctly;<br />

whether it was working, and if<br />

not, why not? The management<br />

team at Molson Coors wanted<br />

and needed to gain insight to<br />

enable them to undertake root<br />

cause analysis.<br />

EFFICIENCY APPROACH<br />

In terms of efficiency, the<br />

approach was taken to<br />

automatically gain the reasons<br />

for machine stoppages from<br />

the existing automation<br />

system, working alongside all<br />

production personnel to gain<br />

additional, more granular<br />

causal insight. The filler is<br />

presented as the line’s rate<br />

limiting machine so, for the<br />

purposes of maintaining<br />

efficiency, it is essential that<br />

unfilled containers arrive<br />

at the maximum rate of the<br />

filling machine and that<br />

downstream activities such as<br />

shrinkwrap, labelling, board<br />

packaging and palletising are<br />

able to operate at least as fast<br />

as the output from the filler.<br />

PACKAGING COMPONENTS<br />

With packaging components<br />

such as cans, bottles, caps,<br />

labels and cartons not being<br />

manufactured in-house,<br />

monitoring and control of<br />

delivery order dates, volumes<br />

and lead times was essential<br />

to avoid unnecessary<br />

overstocking. At a throughput<br />

of 2000 units per minute,<br />

operations are high pressure<br />

and complex.<br />

The financial and customer<br />

relationship implications<br />

of delaying production on<br />

this scale, particularly in<br />

the filling area, are serious<br />

and escalate quickly. The<br />

Astec partnership was able<br />

to provide a system that<br />

could identify faults and<br />

quickly communicate these to<br />

operators for remedy and team<br />

leaders for improvement.<br />

Speedy new assembly<br />

for engine control unit<br />

Vibratory<br />

sieve is easy<br />

for users<br />

Russell Finex has supplied a<br />

chemical manufacturing company<br />

looking for a new separation<br />

solution with a customised<br />

vibratory sieve which has<br />

replaced two rotary sieves that<br />

were used previously for this<br />

product process.<br />

For this application, several<br />

modifications were made to the<br />

1500mm Russell compact sieve<br />

supplied to ensure production<br />

efficiency and to also minimise<br />

downtime. As there were only<br />

small amounts of oversize<br />

contamination that needed to<br />

be removed, the vibratory sieve<br />

was supplied without an oversize<br />

outlet. This also provided the<br />

added benefit of reducing the loss<br />

of good product.<br />

For the little amount of oversize<br />

that stayed on the mesh, the<br />

customer manually cleaned the<br />

screen. To minimise the time<br />

of this cleaning process, eight<br />

connection points were added to<br />

the lid and sieve deck.<br />

By using a winch, the lid and the<br />

sieve deck can easily be lifted either<br />

separately or together for vacuum<br />

cleaning, and to easily change<br />

the mesh screen.<br />

Meanwhile, a combination<br />

of a large inspection hole and<br />

three smaller inspection holes<br />

were added to the lid to allow the<br />

operator to check the amount of<br />

oversize on the mesh, easily.<br />

Lastly, a quick release clamping<br />

system was installed on each lid<br />

of the inspection holes to make<br />

the operation quicker.<br />

information stored within<br />

the PLC data memory.<br />

This information is then<br />

picked up via a PC interfaced<br />

with the customer traceability<br />

system to keep track of the<br />

parts as they are assembled.<br />

each station, with the prior<br />

step information added for<br />

each operation, to ensure the<br />

scientists with repeatable<br />

and accurate results ensuring<br />

Quality as well as productivity is boosted on Altec’s latest assembly system<br />

of each part at any point<br />

during the assembly.<br />

the presence and correct<br />

orientation of the box and lid,<br />

before the machine indexes<br />

OAL Autocoding because<br />

it meets the compliance<br />

requirements and more<br />

importantly it’s easy to use<br />

and set up,” explains Myriam<br />

On the discharge from the<br />

inspection equipment, the<br />

cartons are divided into two<br />

lanes via a specially designed<br />

high speed lane divider which<br />

proportionally splits the carton<br />

feed to either case packer.<br />

Cartons are then oriented from<br />

vertical to a horizontal position<br />

using twister conveyors to<br />

achieve the correct presentation<br />

to the case packers.<br />

On product selection via<br />

the HMI, the conveyor speeds<br />

are automatically set for each<br />

specific product size being<br />

handled at the time.<br />

Between the twister conveyors<br />

and the case packer infeed, low<br />

back pressure accumulation<br />

conveyors are incorporated into<br />

the system to accommodate<br />

any possible minor downtime<br />

issues arising from the case<br />

packers. The system is<br />

Feature: Name Meat, fish here & other proteins<br />

A new poultry plant has been developed to keep pace both with growing demand and with changing consumer preferences – more details on page 53<br />

Meeting need changes<br />

Machinery Update reports on the very latest equipment developed to meet<br />

the changing consumer needs driving NPD in meat, fish and other proteins<br />

Last year in this feature, we talked<br />

a lot about skin packaging and<br />

how this technique was bringing<br />

all sorts of benefits to meat,<br />

especially larger joints with<br />

extremely awkward shapes.<br />

Development in this arena continues<br />

apace with different sizes of meat and fish<br />

being handled and the benefits of longer<br />

shelf lives being delivered.<br />

Meanwhile, other areas where new<br />

product development has occurred has<br />

been in meeting the increased demands<br />

for sliced meats and fish, the growing<br />

popularity for fixed portioning of products<br />

which allows consumers to buy to budget,<br />

not on product weight while, of course,<br />

food safety is still top of everyone’s<br />

agenda. Especially as the spectre of the<br />

horsemeat scandal still looms large.<br />

This time around, another trend seen<br />

by packaging machinery manufacturers<br />

includes the popularity of reclosable<br />

flow wrap packaging in Europe for sliced<br />

meat which, according to PFM Packaging<br />

Machinery, appears set to take off in the<br />

UK later this year or early next.<br />

“Current inquiries suggest that the<br />

next round of investment by several of<br />

the major meat packers will include flow<br />

wrap machines for sliced meat in place<br />

of the more traditional thermoform, fill<br />

and seal equipment,” says PFM sales and<br />

operations director Chris Bolton.<br />

“At least two retailers are also studying<br />

the format for own brand products,” he<br />

tells Machinery Update.<br />

INCREASE IN SLICED PRODUCTS<br />

In Holland for example, PFM has now<br />

supplied eight high speed flow wrapping<br />

lines to a principal contract packer for<br />

sliced beef, turkey, chicken and ham,<br />

producing modified atmosphere packs<br />

with a zipper reclosure, while similar<br />

machines are also in operation in Ireland,<br />

Denmark and Norway.<br />

Ian Wells, product manager for tray<br />

sealing at Multivac UK says price per<br />

pack has never been as important.<br />

Keeping pace with<br />

changing pack formats<br />

is a constant challenge<br />

“Retailers are trying to regain market<br />

share from each other so assets have to<br />

be worked hard to achieve lower cost of<br />

ownership for our customers supplying<br />

the retail market,” he says. Torsten Giese<br />

from Ishida Europe agrees. “Retailer<br />

demands and competition mean there<br />

is a continual drive to reduce costs and<br />

enhance efficiencies, and also a growing<br />

focus on just-in-time supply,” he says.<br />

NPD in this area has also seen various<br />

meats and fish with added sauces or<br />

coatings which packaging machinery has<br />

had to cope with.<br />

FUTURE PROOFING EQUIPMENT<br />

Tony Burgess, head of sales and control<br />

systems at Proseal says that with the<br />

pace of product development showing<br />

no signs of slowing, it is vital that today’s<br />

tray sealers will also be able to cope with<br />

tomorrow’s trends. And this is probably<br />

true across technologies. New features<br />

and enhancements that can be retrofitted<br />

to existing models are definitely going to<br />

be interesting to customers wrestling with<br />

retail demands and their own issues like<br />

paying the living wage.<br />

weighing and combination inspection<br />

machines to bring bottom up design to the<br />

meat and bakery industries in particular<br />

although its equipment is used across a<br />

diverse range of sectors.<br />

Managing director David Buckley<br />

believes that its equipment has been well<br />

received in meat plants because it offers a<br />

combination of benefits that when added<br />

together, makes a real difference to the<br />

operation. “We have spent time doing<br />

the simple things well,” he says, “like<br />

designing complexity out of each system.”<br />

Another thing that appeals to this<br />

market of course, is the robustness of<br />

the equipment.<br />

“These machines have to withstand<br />

a lot of hammer when handling whole<br />

chickens and joints of meat,” he tells<br />

Machinery Update, “so we try to ensure<br />

our equipment is up to the job”.<br />

The company offers various<br />

checkweighing and label inspection<br />

equipment, contaminant inspection,<br />

checkweighing and label inspection units<br />

as well as x-ray inspection machinery.<br />

X-RAY INSPECTION SYSTEM<br />

One company that has installed the latest<br />

x-ray inspection equipment from Sparc<br />

Systems is Esro Food Group. This Dutch<br />

company produces raw materials for the<br />

meat and snack industry and wanted<br />

an x-ray system that could not only find<br />

contaminants but also remove them so<br />

it could guarantee high quality products<br />

for its customers.<br />

The company invited several x-ray<br />

system manufacturers to test their systems<br />

before the purchase decision was made<br />

Working with Sparc Systems’<br />

distributor in the Netherlands, Belgium<br />

and Germany Jansen Control Systems,<br />

Any equipment has to withstand a lot of<br />

hammer when handling whole chickens or<br />

joints of various meats during processing<br />

David Buckley is the MD at Sparc Systems<br />

the Dutch food group was happy to<br />

choose Sparc equipment following<br />

excellent trial results. Features that<br />

proved crucial to the decision were the<br />

compact nature of the equipment as well<br />

as the fact that it has a robust but also<br />

hygienic design so that cleaning is easy.<br />

Furthermore, Esro found the operation<br />

of the machine simple and user friendly.<br />

The fact that the equipment can be<br />

networked so that the QA manager can<br />

access reports easily was also a crucial<br />

buying decision factor.<br />

The Theia 420 combination unit from Sparc<br />

Working with its distributor in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany, Sparc Systems<br />

has installed its latest x-ray inspection equipment at the Esro Food Group<br />

The pipeline system withstands washdown<br />

density plastics. Previously, these<br />

potential foreign bodies were searched<br />

for manually so cost savings have been<br />

delivered. Indeed, Jansen delivered a<br />

complete line including stainless steel<br />

piping as well as mixer controls to<br />

automate the entire process.<br />

Patrick van de Berg, production manager<br />

at Esro has been pleased with the outcome.<br />

“Jansen advised us on the total process<br />

and delivered a high quality x-ray system<br />

which has proved reliable,” he says.<br />

FOOD SAFETY IMPORTANCE<br />

Further projects between the companies<br />

are planned.<br />

The role of x-ray technology for<br />

inspection purposes has become<br />

increasingly important due to the everincreasing<br />

emphasis by consumers and<br />

regulatory authorities on food safety<br />

and quality, says Buckley. “Emerging<br />

issues such as fraud and the intentional<br />

contamination of food have also<br />

highlighted the importance of food<br />

x-ray inspection technology in keeping<br />

consumers safe,” he says.<br />

The company introduced the Iris 250<br />

pipeline x-ray inspection system at the<br />

end of last year which is built specifically<br />

to operate in harsh food processing<br />

environments for all types of pumped<br />

liquids, pastes, slurries and meats.<br />

The system provides superior safety<br />

through contamination detection of glass,<br />

metal, mineral stone, calcified bone, and<br />

high density plastics in pumped food<br />

applications in the early stages of the<br />

production process.<br />

Typical pumped meat and poultry<br />

products include muscle meats, ground<br />

meat, sausage meat, and poultry trims<br />

such as breast fillets and thigh meat that<br />

may contain chicken bones – the most<br />

common contaminant, closely followed<br />

by steel shot (buck shot), needles and teeth.<br />

The three models in the Iris product<br />

range are designed to quickly and simply<br />

integrate into existing rigid or flexible<br />

pipe systems.<br />

Compliance with HACCP and other<br />

quality control methods means it is<br />

essential for manufacturers to keep<br />

accurate records which is why the<br />

intuitive software provides step-by-step<br />

guidance for simple quality assurance<br />

testing and record keeping. It can connect<br />

via Ethernet or USB to download data<br />

direct to an existing network.<br />

Contaminants within slurries, semisolids<br />

and fluids are varied. Depending<br />

on the application, the Iris pipe x-ray<br />

inspection system can detect metal<br />

down to 0.5mm.<br />

The average throughput for muscle<br />

meats, slurries, semi solids and fluids is up<br />

to 14,000 kg an hour for meat and poultry<br />

applications on the Iris equipment.<br />

FLOW RATE CHANGES<br />

The systems are designed to automatically<br />

adapt to changes in the flow rate of the<br />

product. All three models in the Iris x-ray<br />

inspection system range can adjust the<br />

scan speed as well as the associated reject<br />

timing in accordance with an encoder<br />

signal from the upstream equipment.<br />

A fully integrated, servo actuated<br />

rotary reject valve provides accurate and<br />

repeatable reject system performance which<br />

both saves on product waste by minimising<br />

the amount rejected and it does so in<br />

accordance with all current reject integrity<br />

codes of practice, explains Buckley.<br />

“The Iris 250 is designed to specifically<br />

address the unique requirements posed<br />

by product flowing through a pipe, as<br />

well as helping manufacturers comply<br />

with stringent HACCP protocols and food<br />

safety requirements.”<br />

The company has also developed<br />

precision weighing and inspection<br />

technology for packaged products. Its<br />

combination products such as the Cerberus<br />

(metal detection and checkweighing)<br />

and Theia 420, a combination of x-ray<br />

inspection and checkweighing, have been<br />

successful in the proteins market.<br />

The Theia 420 provides both flexibility<br />

and accuracy, making it suitable for<br />

the sliced meat, cheese and also ready<br />

meals applications. It can accommodate<br />

all pack formats in sizes up to 300 x 300<br />

x 100mm. Fast and accurate rejection<br />

of out-of-tolerance or contaminated<br />

packs into dedicated lockable stations<br />

is provided by an in-line, servo driven<br />

reject system which removes the need<br />

for compressed air, offering potential<br />

savings of up to £4,000 a year on running<br />

costs compared with machines based<br />

on compressed air operation, explains<br />

Buckley. “Our combination units are<br />

remarkably compact even when they<br />

incorporate SparcEye continuous top and<br />

bottom label inspection which identifies<br />

inaccuracies in product labelling,”<br />

he tells Machinery Update.<br />

PFM believes that<br />

recloseable MAP<br />

offers meat gains<br />

Italian machinery manufacturer<br />

PFM has supplied eight high<br />

speed flow wrapping lines to<br />

a principal contract packer for<br />

sliced beef, turkey, chicken<br />

and ham, producing modified<br />

atmosphere packs with a zipper<br />

reclosure, while similar machines<br />

are also in operation in Ireland,<br />

Denmark and Norway. And, the<br />

company believes this pack format<br />

is set to take off in the UK later this<br />

year or early next as the popularity<br />

in Europe for sliced meats is<br />

mirrored in this country.<br />

Behind the choice of packaging,<br />

in part replacing thermoform,<br />

fill and seal, are two particular<br />

drivers, says PFM sales and<br />

operations director Chris Bolton.<br />

“From a marketing point of view,<br />

the attraction to consumers of a<br />

reclosable pack for sliced meat is<br />

following the same rationale as<br />

cheese some six to seven years<br />

ago when major brands in the<br />

UK began to adopt zipper and other<br />

reclosure methods as a method<br />

of providing extra life in the fridge<br />

at home.”<br />

However, he asserts, the flow<br />

wrap approach also brings<br />

economic and operational<br />

advantages to the packer,<br />

compared with thermoform, fill<br />

and seal or lidded trays.<br />

“When trays are flow wrapped,<br />

rather than heat-seal lidded,<br />

accuracy of product placement and<br />

its height is far less demanding,” he<br />

says, and as a result, fewer or even<br />

no additional line operatives are<br />

required for manual rectification of<br />

any product close to or on the flange<br />

of the tray or standing proud.<br />

In addition, he points out, size<br />

change is virtually instantaneous<br />

with no tooling costs involved.<br />

The eight lines in Holland are<br />

based on PFM’s extra-long dwell<br />

time BG2800 Zip machine, which<br />

operates in just the same way as a<br />

conventional MAP flow wrapper<br />

but with the longitudinal seal made<br />

at the side where the zipper profiles<br />

are also attached to the inner faces.<br />

Adopting a<br />

new format<br />

Ireland is now<br />

one of the<br />

countries to<br />

introduce<br />

reclosable MAP<br />

packs for sliced<br />

meat products<br />

Also, instead of the traditional<br />

box or D-motion sealing jaws<br />

employed on high speed MAP<br />

machines to give longer dwell<br />

times for hermetic sealing, there is<br />

a series of jaws set around a cam<br />

wheel. These provide much higher<br />

dwell times, typically ten times<br />

greater, improving the quality of<br />

hermetic sealing while allowing<br />

the seals to be made through<br />

At least two UK retailers<br />

are studying the new format<br />

for own brand meat products<br />

the zipper by giving time for the<br />

polymer in the profiles to flow and<br />

prevent voids and hence leaks in<br />

the cross seals.<br />

“Since this allows the zipper<br />

profile to be fed continuously,<br />

rather than be cut to length and<br />

placed between the cross seal<br />

positions, machine speed can<br />

be raised some 5-10 per cent to<br />

typically around 150 packs a<br />

minute,” says Bolton.<br />

Further machines installed<br />

elsewhere by PFM for reclosable<br />

packs of sliced meat are able to use<br />

adhesive tape or mini hook and<br />

loop profile.<br />

Jamones Arroyo is<br />

a long-established<br />

Spanish family firm<br />

that has been positioned<br />

and recognised as one<br />

of the best companies in the<br />

ham sector specialising in easy<br />

to use products, in this case,<br />

sliced ham.<br />

Its main business concerns<br />

manufacturing hams and<br />

Serrano and Iberian ham<br />

shoulders, 90% of which<br />

are destined for slicing,<br />

something increasingly in<br />

demand across the sector.<br />

To this end, the company<br />

is developing every type of<br />

vacuum packaging system,<br />

in protected atmospheres,<br />

or even products suitable for<br />

sale outside refrigerators.<br />

Among its star products are<br />

chunks and cubes of ham,<br />

which represent 40% of its<br />

turnover.<br />

The company turned to<br />

Domino when it needed to<br />

renovate its fleet of printing<br />

devices a few years ago<br />

and today, eighteen A320i<br />

printers are in operation at the<br />

plant. Once this equipment<br />

was installed, production<br />

became more reliable and<br />

homogeneous which has led<br />

Domino and Jamones Arroyo<br />

to work together ever since.<br />

Most notably, Jamones<br />

Arroyo was a customer that<br />

opted for Domino’s ‘Relax’<br />

operating lease which<br />

provided the company with<br />

a fixed cost of ownership<br />

that, in the words of Jamones<br />

Arroyo’s commercial director<br />

Jamones Arroyo has installed eighteen A320i printers at its ham plant in Spain which are proving to be reliable<br />

Consistency<br />

A ham factory in Spain is relying on Domino coders<br />

to deliver productivity as well as traceability gains<br />

Global sector manager Louise Adcock<br />

Javier Arroyo: “Provides<br />

the possibility of paying for<br />

the equipment comfortably,<br />

without incurring major<br />

expenses and, above all,<br />

without getting into debt.<br />

“The essential thing is<br />

that Domino ensures the<br />

maintenance,” he says. With<br />

this Relax programme, the<br />

machinery, the inks, the<br />

maintenance, the service and<br />

the replacements are covered<br />

for five years.<br />

According to Louise Adcock,<br />

global sector manager at<br />

Domino, this<br />

programme has<br />

proved popular<br />

with companies<br />

large and small<br />

as it can be<br />

tailored to meet<br />

individual<br />

needs. “Relax<br />

provides our<br />

customers<br />

with a<br />

fixed cost<br />

of ownership<br />

and allows<br />

organisations<br />

Serrano and Iberian ham slices<br />

to flex capital expenditure<br />

towards other avenues<br />

of their business,” she<br />

tells Machinery<br />

Update. “This<br />

brings added<br />

value to our<br />

customers.<br />

“Coding<br />

manufacturers<br />

must focus on the<br />

outcomes that<br />

their solutions<br />

can provide<br />

to customers<br />

especially in

today’s economic trading<br />

environment,” she continues.<br />

“This is what we concentrate<br />

on to drive value.”<br />

She believes it is all about<br />

looking ahead, to customers’<br />

five year plans, not just their<br />

current requirements.<br />

At Jamones Arroyo, Domino<br />

also made sure that staff on<br />

the production lines had a<br />

thorough knowledge of how<br />

the equipment worked by<br />

providing all of the workers<br />

with training courses.<br />

And let’s not forget,<br />

the A320i printers are<br />

habitually employed in cold<br />

environments. “Meat and<br />

fish industry plants can<br />

be some of the harshest<br />

environments for coders<br />

to work in, which is why<br />

providing equipment that<br />

can withstand this is so<br />

important,” says Adcock.<br />

And Javier Arroyo agrees.<br />

“The reliability of coding and<br />

marking is guaranteed for<br />

Jamones Arroyo, due to the<br />

considerable experience that<br />

Domino Printing brings to<br />

the table,” he says.<br />

“Domino has contributed to<br />

enhancing Jamones Arroyo’s<br />

productivity with a hugely<br />

significant reduction in the<br />

number of incidents, and<br />

today, the level of stoppages<br />

due to breakdowns is<br />

practically zero.”<br />

One of the printers<br />

exclusively marks ham cube<br />

packs, while another three are<br />

used for marking the blisters<br />

of cured meats on which the<br />

batch and expiry date are<br />

Meat and fish processors need<br />

coders that are reliable, even in<br />

harsh production environments<br />

marked on two lines.<br />

The production process<br />

has different phases: the first<br />

one involves the slicing of the<br />

meat, before it is passed onto<br />

a conveyor belt and finally<br />

packed and stamped. It is at<br />

this stage that the Domino<br />

equipment is employed<br />

for marking the film for<br />

the products, which are<br />

afterwards cut into individual<br />

packs of slices.<br />

Another key issue in the<br />

meat and fish market is<br />

traceability. “An overriding<br />

problem is consumer trust,”<br />

says Adcock, “which is why<br />

traceability provided by our<br />

coders and software solutions<br />

is so important as it allows our<br />

customers to track product<br />

throughout the entirety of<br />

their supply chain”.<br />

looking for precise control and<br />

positioning with low operating costs<br />

SM C P neum a t ics looks into the benefits that can<br />

be gained by specifying electric actuators<br />

It’s generally accepted that electric<br />

actuators provide exibility plus<br />

precise control and positioning with low<br />

operating costs, when com pared to using<br />

standard pneum atic actuators. Whilst<br />

falling energy charges have helped<br />

address som e of the costs issues when<br />

using com pressed air, high m aintenance<br />

and operating expenses still rem ain<br />

a m ajor factor. According to the<br />

Departm ent of Energy, 24 % of<br />

the annual cost of com pressed<br />

air is due to<br />

m aintenance,<br />

equipm ent<br />

and<br />

According to Jerem y Wicks, a specialist<br />

in electric actuators at autom ation<br />

leaders SM C: “ T he m ajor factor when<br />

selecting electric actuators in an<br />

application is the need for accurate<br />

sizing. Understanding and evaluating<br />

loading in the application helps to ensure<br />

that the right actuator is speci ed<br />

which, in turn, m eans that you’re<br />

using the m ost cost effective<br />

electric actuator solution.”<br />

However, with the vast<br />

choice of electric actuators<br />

now on the m arket and<br />

with prices from £ 50 0 to<br />

£ 2,0 0 0 and m ore, are these<br />

factors stopping today’s<br />

engineers going electric?<br />

OE M ’s and E nd users- can you af f ord<br />

not to go electric?<br />

In reality, the power draw of the m otor<br />

is largely responsible for the operating<br />

costs as the low voltage circuitry in the<br />

am pli er and the controller consum e<br />

installation,<br />

while 76 % is due<br />

directly to the cost of<br />

electricity for the com pressor.<br />

On the other hand, electric actuators<br />

are particularly suitable when used in<br />

m edium sized applications where their<br />

exibility of perform ance, coupled with<br />

their excellent energy e ciency and<br />

lower m aintenance and replacem ents<br />

costs can be enjoyed, without the high<br />

generation and m aintenance costs<br />

associated with com pressed air.<br />

“ The ma jor fa ctor when selecting electric a ctua tors in a n a pplica tion is<br />

the need for a ccura te sizing. Understa nding a nd eva lua ting loa ding in<br />

the a pplica tion helps to ensure the right a ctua tor is speci ed which, in<br />

turn, mea ns tha t you’ re using the most cost effective a ctua tor solution”<br />

It’s true that the com ponent costs of<br />

electric actuators are higher than for air<br />

operated cylinders, but their operating<br />

costs are lower. A fact which is often<br />

not considered or it’s sim ply ignored.<br />

T he overall cost of ownership for users<br />

can be very attractive when production<br />

lead tim es can be reduced by their<br />

integration, as the cost bene<br />

ts can<br />

be visible to production m anagers and<br />

senior m anagem ent. Although not<br />

often considered with cost, the level and<br />

capability of high speed data feedback<br />

can be used to m onitor live inform ation<br />

such as product size when picking<br />

various siz ed item s using electric<br />

grippers, which can lead to 10 0 %<br />

to slow line side batch testing. Aligning<br />

these cost benef its in producing a<br />

T he largest costs in m anuf acturing<br />

Automated lines on<br />

new haggis range is<br />

Delicious Everyday<br />

for Macsween<br />

Two specially constructed<br />

Endoline high speed<br />

packing lines has helped<br />

leading Scottish haggis<br />

producer Macsween<br />

automate the production of a new<br />

haggis brand to meet retail demand.<br />

When combined, both lines can run<br />

up to 40,000 cases of product per<br />

day, increasing overall output by 200<br />

even in compact production areas.<br />

Third generation family business<br />

Macsween has a haggis factory in<br />

Edinburgh and to boost all-yearround<br />

demand outside Scotland, the<br />

company developed the ‘Delicious<br />

Everyday’ range to offer a variety of<br />

haggis based delicacies including<br />

black pudding and vegetarian<br />

options, to appeal to non-Scottish<br />

customers. “The Delicious Everyday<br />

range opens haggis up to a brand<br />

new audience as customers realise<br />

the diversity of this ingredient<br />

that they can use in their everyday<br />

cooking,” explains md of the<br />

company James Macsween.<br />

Automating a packing line was<br />

a first in the 60 year lifespan of<br />

Macsween however the company<br />

immediately contacted Murray<br />

Packaging, Endoline’s Scottish<br />

distributor, as they had worked<br />

together previously.<br />

Also, both lines needed to be<br />

installed within the original factory<br />

The new Everyday<br />

range is handled<br />

on two new lines<br />

Automating<br />

boosts sales<br />

Case sizes vary<br />

depending on<br />

individual<br />

customer requests<br />

where space was tight. Murray<br />

Packaging and Endoline therefore<br />

designed a ‘cruciform’ system with<br />

three conveyors running in parallel.<br />

Each of the packing lines has<br />

an elevated conveyor which runs<br />

the product from the power roller<br />

to a packing station where four<br />

manual packers are ready to pack<br />

the products into a formed box.<br />

A single, fully automatic 248<br />

case erector feeds both of these<br />

packing lines and formed cases are<br />

transported to the packing stations<br />

via a conveyor running above the<br />

packing stations.<br />

“A control system was integrated<br />

into the conveyor to accumulate<br />

and control the in-feed of the empty<br />

boxes to work in tandem with the<br />

pace of the manual operators,<br />

so as each box is removed from<br />

the line, another is moved along<br />

ensuring a constant smooth flow,”<br />

explains Ian Murray, md of Murray<br />

Packaging. “As the empty cases are<br />

light, we ran the conveyor from the<br />

case erector up an incline with a<br />

90 degree bend to run at head level<br />

for the packers, not only meeting<br />

the factory’s space constraints but<br />

ensuring it was ergonomically<br />

friendly to the packers.”<br />

Once the packers have filled the<br />

case with the desired quantity of<br />

product the full case is then placed<br />

by the packer onto a third power<br />

roller conveyor, which runs parallel<br />

with the packing station, to be<br />

sealed. Both the case erector and<br />

case sealer can be easily adjusted<br />

to deal with different case sizes.<br />

“Automating this process has not<br />

only boosted our output but given<br />

us the scope to deal with future<br />

demand,” says James Macsween.<br />

50 MACHINERY UPDATE MARCH/APRIL <strong>2016</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

Feature: Meat, fish & other proteins<br />

Technology<br />

that offers best<br />

fit is supplied<br />

Machinery Update talks to Multivac UK about its ability to offer<br />

both tray sealing and thermoforming equipment for skin packs<br />

which, it argues, always allows it to supply the best fit machine<br />

When Henry Ford famously<br />

said “Any customer can<br />

have a car painted any<br />

colour that he wants so<br />

long as it is black”, it was<br />

because it suited Ford’s production lines.<br />

There is, however, no such constraint for<br />

Multivac UK in offering fresh meat and<br />

fish customers the choice between tray<br />

sealing and thermoforming to produce<br />

skin packaging. Indeed, the company<br />

The vacuum skin process for larger joints<br />

is including a T 300 (traysealer) and<br />

R 105MF (thermoformer) comparison area<br />

on its stand at Foodex in <strong>April</strong> (see pg 21),<br />

where the two technologies capable of<br />

producing skin packs for the proteins<br />

market can be seen going head to head.<br />

With similar investment levels but<br />

offering different flexibility and pack<br />

presentation visuals, visitors can compare<br />

the two technologies and decide which<br />

is best for their product and production<br />

requirements. “The investment into<br />

skin equipment over the past few years<br />

has increased dramatically, driven by<br />

the retailers to ensure that the product<br />

presentation focuses on the product<br />

not the pack,” explains Multivac UK<br />

marketing manager Laura Affleck.<br />

COMPARING PACK APPEARANCE<br />

“This area will allow food producers<br />

to compare pack appearance, capital<br />

investment levels and pack costs and decide<br />

without bias, which technology is best for<br />

them and their customers,” she says.<br />

Batting for the tray sealing side is Ian<br />

Wells, product manager for tray sealing<br />

at Multivac UK. “Because we offer both<br />

thermoformers and tray sealers we are<br />

not geared to one technology and can<br />

therefore offer customers the best machine<br />

to do the job,” he tells Machinery Update.<br />

“And this is key for our customers in<br />

the proteins business as it is an<br />

SUMMARY<br />

SKIN PACK WARS<br />

■ ■ The company offers both tray sealers<br />

and thermoformers for skin packs<br />

■ ■ The MultiFresh range meets all the<br />

requirements of pack size, output and<br />

the level of automation<br />

■ ■ All machines offer robust and reliable<br />

operation, even in harsh environments<br />

■ ■ They offer a competitive price per pack<br />

ever-changing market place.”<br />

Equipment has to meet the changing<br />

shopping habits of consumers and, says<br />

Wells, this doesn’t mean less demand,<br />

just different demand. “Today, turnover<br />

in the fridge is much higher, portions<br />

sizes are changing, food waste is an<br />

issue and eat me, keep me is becoming<br />

more relevant,” he says. “This is why<br />

food producers have to offer constantly<br />

changing variety to keep consumers on<br />

board with their products.”<br />

One company that has to meet the<br />

packaging needs of a diverse range of<br />

customers is Lions Speciality Foods,<br />

processor of salmon, mackerel and<br />

haddock delicacies. Its products go to<br />

the retail and wholesale trade as well<br />

Feature: Name here<br />

Attractive skin packs for retail are a success<br />

which is designed for the MultiFresh<br />

vacuum skin process from Multivac.<br />

The results instantly convinced<br />

Dovecote Park. “The shelf life of our<br />

products doubled from six to twelve days,<br />

sales shot up by almost 20%, and we<br />

were able to reduce the consumption of<br />

packaging material by more than<br />

30 tonnes per year.” says production<br />

director David Redman. Its major customer<br />

was also delighted with the results.<br />

Hot-smoked Scottish salmon is packed on the T 300 traysealer at Bellshill in Central Scotland<br />

These joints present different challenges<br />

in operation. It is a particularly compact<br />

machine and is designed for running<br />

a wide spectrum of trays in small and<br />

medium-sized batches.<br />

“We were looking specifically for a<br />

machine manufacturer with whom<br />

we could work together to produce our<br />

innovative new products in attractive skin<br />

packs for retail,” says William Callaghan<br />

factory manager at Lions.<br />

Hot-smoked Scottish salmon is packed<br />

on the T 300 traysealer in Bellshill in three<br />

pack formats; two different MAP packs as<br />

well as one vacuum skin pack which can<br />

be produced with a very quick changeover<br />

time. The skin packs allow the shape and<br />

structure of the fish to be retained, and the<br />

shelf life is extended.<br />

Despite an overall length of only<br />

2.45 metres, the T 300 offers a loading<br />

area with two loading positions,<br />

which enables the trays to be filled in<br />

the tightest space, and which can be<br />

expanded to three tracks if required.<br />

It is capable of being washed down,<br />

and with its high-quality and durable<br />

stainless steel construction, it is designed<br />

for the highest hygiene requirements.<br />

“With the new packaging machine it<br />

is practically a case of a plug-and-play<br />

system,” says Callaghan. “The positive<br />

feedback from our customers, and the<br />

very pleasing rise in sales, shows that<br />

our new salmon products have been well<br />

received by retailers and consumers.”<br />

When leading independent meat<br />

processor Dovecote Park decided to test<br />

vacuum skin packs for the first time<br />

on a range of steaks a few years ago,<br />

it initially rented a compact R 175 MF<br />

thermoforming packaging machine,<br />

WAITROSE APPROVAL<br />

“This fantastic packaging technology<br />

enables us to offer our customers a<br />

better quality product, which takes up<br />

less space in the refrigerator or freezer,<br />

and which at the same time is more<br />

environmentally friendly,” said buyer<br />

at Waitrose Rachel Pearson.<br />

As a consequence of this, Dovecote Park<br />

ordered several thermoforming packaging<br />

lines with MultiFresh technology. And<br />

since this time, the company has started<br />

to use the vacuum skin process for calf<br />

shanks. As these meat cuts are up to 10cm<br />

high, Multivac came up with a further<br />

machine development to cope with this,<br />

and also meet the high output demands.<br />

“Our objective was to offer Waitrose<br />

supermarkets a high quality and<br />

attractive pack, to optimise the speed and<br />

flexibility of our lines and to reduce our<br />

packaging costs overall,” says Redman.<br />

The result of these demands is the<br />

R 575 MF PRO which includes an<br />

additional upper web forming station to<br />

increase process reliability.<br />

According to Wells, food safety and<br />

hygiene standards will only increase<br />

which is why reliable and robust<br />

equipment is so important in this market.<br />

“Assets have to be worked hard in<br />

today’s environment with value for money<br />

and price per pack important to everyone,<br />

whatever the size of the business,” he says.<br />

Ishida has supplied<br />

two plants with a<br />

range of equipment<br />

The accuracy, reliability<br />

and hygienic design<br />

of Ishida multihead<br />

weighers have helped to<br />

transform the packing<br />

operation of leading French burger<br />

manufacturer McKey.<br />

McKey produces millions of<br />

burgers every working day – some<br />

42,000 tonnes annually – for one<br />

of the world’s largest restaurant<br />

chains. The burgers are produced in<br />

about 20 different weight variants,<br />

predominantly 110g. They are<br />

placed in pockets which are then<br />

inserted into cartons, usually of<br />

13.5kg. The best performance the<br />

previous weighing equipment<br />

(installed in 1992) could achieve<br />

was to get within ± 5 burgers<br />

(~550g) of the target weight.<br />

The accuracy of the new Ishida<br />

CCW-RS multihead weighers –<br />

14-head, waterproof models, each<br />

equipped with 5-litre hoppers –<br />

means that McKey now achieves an<br />

approximate deviation from target<br />

weight of just 1g in each carton.<br />

Another key reason for the<br />

selection of the Ishida weighers<br />

was their reliable operation.<br />

The burgers have to be kept moving<br />

continuously through the process<br />

and any downtime in the packaging<br />

section could cause real problems.<br />

Ishida’s attention to detail in<br />

designing out bacterial traps<br />

and making cleaning simple and<br />

effective, covering not just food<br />

contact surfaces but also structural<br />

elements such as legs and struts,<br />

led to the company also being made<br />

responsible for the conveying and<br />

infeed equipment from the exit of<br />

the IQF tunnels to the multihead<br />

weighers. On the weigher platform<br />

Ishida installed a ‘wash wall’ where<br />

contact parts can be cleaned and<br />

allowed to drain.<br />

The Ishida weighers are a key<br />

component of five new packing<br />

lines which also comprise<br />

bagmakers and casepackers,<br />

installed as part of a €25.5 million<br />

modernisation plan at McKey’s<br />

Everyone is<br />

lovin’ it…<br />

The burger giant<br />

has reduced its<br />

downtime and<br />

maintenance<br />

costs since it<br />

installed the<br />

Ishida weighers<br />

factory in Fleury-les-Aubrais in<br />

Northern France.<br />

Given the importance of<br />

uninterrupted supply to the chain<br />

of restaurants, the modernisation<br />

process was carefully planned to<br />

take place within a two-week<br />

window. This was accomplished<br />

as planned, something of a record<br />

for such a major project.<br />

And the choice of Ishida<br />

weighers has gone well.<br />

“Since the introduction of the<br />

Ishida multihead weighers, we<br />

have had zero maintenance costs,”<br />

explains McKey ceo Grégory Blin.<br />

Meanwhile, Ishida has been<br />

detector are inspecting a wide<br />

range of Joseph Robertson seafood<br />

products, including frozen and<br />

chilled coated fillets and fishcakes,<br />

for contaminants at speeds up to<br />

Established as Joseph<br />

Robertson’s preferred supplier<br />

of inspection equipment, Loma’s<br />

robust systems are designed to<br />

cope with the rigours of a fish<br />

processing facility. Loma also offers<br />

the benefit of a dedicated Scotlandbased<br />

service and support team<br />

who can be on site within hours.<br />

Simon Robertson, director at<br />

Joseph Robertson explains:<br />

“We have used Loma equipment<br />

on and off for over 20 years, mainly<br />

due to its functionality, reliability<br />

and ease of use.<br />

“Built with heavy-duty conveyor<br />

components and high quality<br />

electronics, the CW3 combination<br />

unit in particular is ideal for tough<br />

production environments like<br />

ours,” he says.<br />

“As well as providing high<br />

performance inspection systems<br />

that offer low cost of ownership and<br />

good management of process KPIs,<br />

skinning and filleting and,<br />

says Loma’s Alex Learmonth,<br />

a quality control system such<br />

as the CW3 combination allows<br />

early identification of foreign<br />

bodies during this production<br />

process. “To maintain best quality<br />

in the unlikely event of metallic<br />

contamination from knives and<br />

mechanical equipment, Joseph<br />

Robertson passes all its products<br />

through Loma inspection<br />

equipment for reassurance that<br />

even the tiniest particles are<br />

detected and removed,” he says.<br />

all of which are packed in plastics<br />

trays. “The metal detector offers<br />

variable frequency meaning items<br />

can be automatically calibrated<br />

in a matter of seconds, ensuring<br />

optimum speed and efficiency,”<br />

says Learmonth. “Frequency data<br />

for many different products can<br />

be stored allowing for minimum<br />

set up time, ease of operation and<br />

optimum sensitivity across<br />

a complete range.”<br />

Simon Robertson has been<br />

extremely happy with the<br />

The portioner can also be<br />

placed in line with a grader,<br />

to maximise the yields. In<br />

this case, the machine selects<br />

the optimal cutting pattern to<br />

reduce trim while the outfeed<br />

product holder ensures that all<br />

portions are separated before<br />

coming onto the weighing belt.<br />

Other portioning machines<br />

in this range available from SF<br />

Engineering include the Portio 1<br />

for flat products, and the<br />

Portio 1D, a dual lane machine<br />

for increased capacities in<br />

a small footprint. On both<br />

models, the option to cut<br />

under angle is available. The<br />

latest model is the Portio 1F<br />

which is designed for fillets.<br />

Biltong pouches<br />

are customised<br />

with offline coder<br />

AKBA-Metronic feeding<br />

system from PrintSafe,<br />

fitted with an ICE<br />

Zodiac thermal transfer<br />

printer is helping<br />

biltong producer Cruga to improve<br />

production efficiencies while<br />

reducing packaging costs.<br />

The company replaced its<br />

vertical form, fill and seal (VFFS)<br />

packaging machines with two<br />

pouch fillers a couple of years ago<br />

as the three sealed edges on the<br />

bags produced were vulnerable to<br />

faults. “When you pack biltong,<br />

you need to remove oxygen from<br />

the pack to maintain quality<br />

and we also felt that the finished<br />

pack was less attractive than<br />

pouches,” explains company<br />

founder, David Low.<br />

To reduce packaging costs, Cruga<br />

uses a range of generic pouches<br />

that it overprints with a barcode<br />

and data denoting product-specific<br />

information. This gives it the<br />

flexibility to respond to changes<br />

in customer orders while also<br />

minimising wastage.<br />

When using the VFFS system,<br />

Cruga was able to print this<br />

information on to the film prior to<br />

filling but the change to pouches<br />

meant this was no longer possible.<br />

“We could print date, batch<br />

and time information with ink jet<br />

printers integrated into the pouch<br />

fillers, but barcodes could not be<br />

printed to the standard required,”<br />

explains Low.<br />

“We needed a separate printer<br />

that would allow us to convert<br />

our generic packaging for specific<br />

products prior to filling.”<br />

Cruga Biltong originally<br />

purchased two offline vacuum<br />

pouch-feeding systems through<br />

its machinery supplier partner<br />

but these quickly became<br />

unreliable. It was the company’s<br />

engineering manager that found<br />

the udaFORMAXX and then<br />

visited PrintSafe where a range<br />

of pouch types and sizes were<br />

tested successfully.<br />

Taking out<br />

pack costs<br />

Biltong is now<br />

a significant<br />

segment of the<br />

meat snacks<br />

industry across<br />

the UK<br />

“He was also impressed by the<br />

build quality and its simplicity of<br />

operation,” says Low.<br />

Today, Cruga is using the narrowbelt<br />

model where the pouches<br />

are fed past the thermal transfer<br />

printer using a tight grip belt<br />

conveyor to ensure that there is no<br />

pouch movement. In addition, the<br />

udaFORMAXX ‘i’ stops briefly so<br />

that the pouch is stationary at the<br />

moment of printing, increasing<br />

accuracy and reducing wear on<br />

the printhead.<br />

Low says that these two factors<br />

have made all the difference.<br />

Cruga Biltong initially purchased<br />

one udaFORMAXX, wanting to<br />

I am confident that one<br />

operator will comfortably be<br />

able to run the two printers<br />

confirm that speed and accuracy<br />

would be maintained within the<br />

actual production environment.<br />

PrintSafe supplied the system<br />

fitted with an ICE Zodiac thermal<br />

transfer printer. “The speed is<br />

phenomenal,” says Low.<br />

“In the first four weeks, we<br />

printed more on one system than<br />

we printed in six months on the<br />

previous equipment.<br />

“The pouch feeders are fast and<br />

reliable and the ICE Zodiac thermal<br />

transfer printer is very easy to<br />

use,” he says. “Our non-English<br />

speaking operators have absolutely<br />

no problem running the machines<br />

including handling all of the<br />

ribbon changes.”<br />

Confident in the long-term<br />

performance, Cruga has since<br />

placed an order for a second unit.<br />

Feature: Meat, fish & other proteins<br />

Proseal’s new tray<br />

sealer handles big<br />

trays for joints<br />

Heat sealing specialist<br />

Proseal UK has<br />

introduced a new<br />

tray sealer specifically<br />

designed to handle very<br />

large food trays. The new GT5exSD<br />

can seal trays up to 400mm wide,<br />

making it particularly suitable to<br />

handle large cuts of meat and joints.<br />

Top speeds for the single lane<br />

machine are up to 40 skin pack<br />

trays per minute.<br />

The GT5exSD is fully flexible and<br />

adaptable to handle any type of<br />

packing operation, including MAP<br />

gas flushing, vacuum MAP sealing,<br />

skin packaging below and above the<br />

flange, and skin deep. Customers<br />

can simply select the format types<br />

they require and these can be added<br />

to or taken off at any time.<br />

This, says Proseal, allows food<br />

manufacturers to change their<br />

pack formats in line with customer<br />

demands without having to invest<br />

in new equipment.<br />

Just as important, the GT platform<br />

enables future enhancements and<br />

new features to be retrofitted to<br />

existing models at a later date.<br />

With the pace of product<br />

development showing no signs of<br />

slowing, it is vital that today’s tray<br />

sealers will also be able to cope<br />

with tomorrow’s trends.<br />

“Today, manufacturers have to<br />

offer a wide range of different pack<br />

formats, while at the same time<br />

production runs are becoming<br />

shorter in order to meet the specific<br />

needs of individual customers,”<br />

says Tony Burgess, head of sales<br />

and control systems at Proseal.<br />

“This highlighted the requirement<br />

to develop a range of machines with<br />

the flexibility to easily deal with so<br />

many formats and this GT5exSD is<br />

the latest example of this, focusing<br />

on demand for larger-size packs.”<br />

Maximum throughput is<br />

achieved thanks to Proseal’s<br />

Pro-Motion system which uses<br />

following motion and intelligent<br />

buffering technology to enable<br />

trays to feed continuously into<br />

the sealer without stopping.<br />

Big formats<br />

meet needs<br />

The new machine<br />

can handle large<br />

cuts of meat and<br />

joints in trays up<br />

to 400mm wide<br />

An auto-detect product flow<br />

monitoring system regulates<br />

the speed of the infeed conveyor<br />

according to the number of trays<br />

being supplied.<br />

This typically increases speeds<br />

by up to 30% in operation.<br />

Proseal’s E-seal technology<br />

meanwhile provides seal reliability<br />

to meet the stringent quality<br />

requirements of the food retail<br />

sector while delivering a 92%<br />

reduction in energy usage, which<br />

offers valuable cost savings and<br />

sustainability benefits.<br />

Equally important, the machine<br />

boasts an hygienic design with rapid<br />

Top speeds for the single<br />

lane machine are up to 40<br />

skin pack trays per minute<br />

strip down of the product handling<br />

conveyors allowing deep cleaning to<br />

be carried out quickly and easily.<br />

Another advanced feature of<br />

the GT5 range is its Pro-Tect user<br />

login security system, which<br />

provides different levels of<br />

authorisation access for individual<br />

personnel. The system keeps<br />

a log of information input for<br />

full traceability in the event of<br />

any problems, and any attempt<br />

to log in above a person’s level<br />

of authorisation will also be<br />

registered and recorded.<br />

The GT5 retains Proseal’s rugged<br />

construction to food industry<br />

approved hygiene standards with<br />

full wash-down protection.<br />

Also, the company’s established<br />

‘Auto Tool’ connection system<br />

enables tool changes to be carried<br />

out in about five minutes.<br />

Referred to by UPM as ‘Syscon’<br />

conveyors, the simplistic ‘groove’<br />

design with side channels made<br />

from high molecular weight<br />

polyethylene (HMWPE), appealed<br />

to Pacepacker because it can be<br />

deployed in hygienic food processing<br />

areas. Ideal for transporting<br />

unpackaged primary products,<br />

this HMWPE conveyor caters to<br />

every type of product handling<br />

requirement, from raw meat and<br />

poultry to fresh and frozen produce.<br />

“Client requirements in the food<br />

sector can be both challenging and<br />

unique,” explains Pacepacker’s<br />

business development manager<br />

Paul Wilkinson. “Like us, UPM<br />

Conveyors specialises in creating<br />

bespoke automation solutions<br />

and its HMWPE conveyor system<br />

is just one of the design types<br />

we’re starting to integrate into our<br />

robotic pick and place systems<br />

more and more as it meets food<br />

manufacturers’ stringent hygiene<br />

requirements.”<br />

Providing a full array of<br />

conveyors, manufactured in all<br />

types of materials, Pacepacker can<br />

supply everything from gravity<br />

rollers to belt conveyors and heavy<br />

duty palletisers. “Our clients may<br />

need delayed stops, accelerated<br />

sections or turning devices,” says<br />

Wilkinson. “In every instance,<br />

the conveyor element is about<br />

he says. “As a company, it has<br />

more than 40 years expertise in the<br />

conveyor market and the HMWPE<br />

conveyor has been operating<br />

successfully the world over for over<br />

two decades.”<br />

Since Pacepacker showcased the<br />

HMWPE ‘Syscon’ conveyor at its<br />

recent open day event, the<br />

companies have already collaborated<br />

on several client projects.<br />

“In traditional conveyors, the<br />

belt is stretched over two rollers<br />

Customers are offered a<br />

zero maintenance guarantee<br />

with the HMWPE conveyor<br />

and this requires regular tracking<br />

and tensioning,” explains Roy<br />

Fowler, sales director at UPM<br />

Conveyors. “With our HMWPE<br />

design, the belt runs in the side<br />

channels – top and bottom.<br />

“As a result, friction is significantly<br />

cut. And because there are no<br />

pinch or trap points, manufacturers<br />

can maintain the highest level of<br />

hygiene and reduce the risk of cross<br />

contamination,” he explains.<br />

The sides of the conveyor are<br />

made of HMWPE with stainless<br />

steel support frames. This makes<br />

it fully compliant with FDA<br />

regulations and being IP69K rated<br />

can withstand high pressure and<br />

close proximity washdowns.<br />

Having fewer parts also means<br />

there’s less to go wrong, which<br />

also reduces maintenance time.<br />

As a result, UPM confidently offers<br />

customers a zero maintenance<br />

guarantee.<br />

Components<br />

Faster response time is<br />

offered by new pumps<br />

Piab says its new<br />

piCOMPACT 23<br />

vacuum pump,<br />

the latest addition to the<br />

range, is the most efficient<br />

ejector on the market<br />

and can handle up to 180<br />

items a minute. It also,<br />

points out Mark Grainger,<br />

sales director for the UK<br />

and Ireland at Piab, has a<br />

faster response time and<br />

more vacuum flow than<br />

any other similarly sized<br />

pump available.<br />

“This means that<br />

suction caps grip more<br />

effectively making the<br />

pick and place operation<br />

faster and safer,” he tells<br />

Machinery Update.<br />

As with the other<br />

vacuum pumps in the range,<br />

the piCOMPACT 23 has been<br />

designed for industries that<br />

rely on medium to high speed<br />

pick and place. The unit,<br />

which weighs between 260<br />

and 370gm depending on the<br />

model chosen, is very easy to<br />

install to a robotic head and<br />

therefore simple to clean and<br />

also maintain.<br />

standard; it also monitors its<br />

stock levels carefully meaning<br />

that most orders can be<br />

flexibility have been achieved<br />

with this product.<br />

And customers can specify<br />

exactly the performance that<br />

they need at no additional<br />

cost, says Grainger.<br />

There is a choice of<br />

compressed air, vacuum,<br />

exhaust and electrical<br />

components on offer which<br />

means that there are significant<br />

energy savings available.<br />

Reliability is another<br />

significant factor with the<br />

piCOMPACT 23, says Piab as<br />

the lifespan of all the moving<br />

parts is over 50,000,000<br />

cycles. This has been achieved<br />

by installing a completely<br />

sealed ejector cartridge and an<br />

integrated compressed air and<br />

vacuum filter.<br />

Inverters<br />

offer extra<br />

performance<br />

Nord Drivesystems has<br />

equipped all motor-mounted<br />

and cabinet-installed frequency<br />

inverters with new, more versatile<br />

microcontrollers and new firmware.<br />

Notably in the design change,<br />

this architectural upgrade enables<br />

the inverters originally designed<br />

for asynchronous motors to also<br />

control synchronous motors,<br />

which is becoming increasingly<br />

important particularly with the<br />

advent of IE4 efficiency motors.<br />

Highly dynamic drive tasks can<br />

now be executed without encoder<br />

feedback, says the company.<br />

With this comes substantial<br />

benefits: for instance, customers<br />

who have been using IE3 motors<br />

with an encoder can save energy<br />

and costs by switching to IE4<br />

motors without an encoder.<br />

Moreover, new generation Nord<br />

inverters are capable of performing<br />

drive-related PLC functions, which<br />

can significantly relieve external<br />

controllers. In some cases,<br />

previously used mini-controllers<br />

may even become redundant and<br />

be completely omitted.<br />

The inverters support the<br />

manufacturer-independent<br />

PLCopen function blocks for<br />

motion control. They can be<br />

freely programmed according<br />

to IEC 61131-3 in ‘Structured<br />

Text’ or ‘Instruction List’. This<br />

makes application development<br />

less complex and reduces the<br />

associated costs, says Nord.<br />

Customer-specific drive-related<br />

functions can be implemented by<br />

means of the inverter PLC without<br />

an application-specific firmware<br />

and free from cost intensive<br />

verification and validation.<br />

O6juniorUK.pdf 1 07/01/2015 10:16<br />

The latest family of<br />

motors from LinMot<br />

combine a linear<br />

motor and a servomotor in<br />

a single compact assembly.<br />

Highly dynamic linear rotary<br />

motion sequences can be<br />

programmed to be either<br />

synchronous or completely<br />

independent of each other.<br />

This, says UK distributor<br />

Quin Systems, is a solution<br />

demanded by machine<br />

builders for a more efficient<br />

and flexible solution for<br />

applications which require<br />

both linear and rotary<br />

motions, such as threading,<br />

closing, pick and place,<br />

stacking and aligning.<br />

CM<br />

LinMot’s PR01 range of<br />

CY<br />

motors has answered this need<br />

as a compact housing contains CMY<br />

both an electromagnetic linear<br />

K<br />

drive and a rotary direct drive,<br />

each controlled by a servo<br />

drive. Position, motion, linear<br />

force and rotary torque can be<br />

programmed with all electric<br />

servo motor technology and<br />

significantly lower energy costs<br />

than pneumatic alternatives.<br />

Various sizes are available that<br />

generate a peak torque ranging<br />

from 1.5 to 8.9 Nm.<br />

These motors are ideal for<br />

bottle capping applications<br />

and are particularly attractive<br />

for reducing the size and<br />

improving the performance<br />

of multi-axis carousel closure<br />

systems. Distributor Quin<br />

Components<br />

Flexible and lean electronics<br />

deliver top machine solution<br />

The fieldbus modules are installed close to the process so sensors and valves can be connected with shorter cables, adding maximum flexibility for users<br />

German packaging<br />

machine manufacturer<br />

Transnova Ruf is using<br />

Murrelektronik’s Cube67<br />

fieldbus system for efficient<br />

wiring in its complex<br />

packaging machines that are<br />

also modular.<br />

Currently, the company<br />

is working on equipment<br />

destined for a Swiss<br />

pharmaceutical company.<br />

This involves medical products<br />

being packed into small boxes<br />

on any one of ten production<br />

lines before palletisation,<br />

shrinkwrapping and storing in<br />

a high rack warehouse.<br />

A large number of sensors<br />

and valves are integrated into<br />

this system. The data matrix<br />

codes printed on the primary<br />

packaging help to transport<br />

the boxes into the system at<br />

the right time as well as<br />

bringing them to the right<br />

packaging station.<br />

Transnova Ruf uses<br />

Murrelektronik’s Cube67<br />

fieldbus system as the<br />

backbone of the system’s<br />

electrical installation.<br />

Since the fieldbus modules<br />

are connected with pluggable<br />

cables, Transnova Ruf’s<br />

engineers are able to put<br />

together a very flexible<br />

solution that can be quickly<br />

assembled and disassembled<br />

as needed. Furthermore, the<br />

system is easily expandable<br />

as it does not require many<br />

modifications from the electrotechnical<br />

point of view.<br />

Often, another Cube67<br />

module can be integrated<br />

simply by connecting it<br />

to a nearby module with a<br />

Murrelektronik hybrid (data<br />

and power) cable. The doubleended<br />

hybrid cables also lower<br />

the risk of wiring errors.<br />

MODULES COLLECT INFO<br />

Fifteen Cube67 ProfiNet bus<br />

nodes are installed in this<br />

system. The modules collect<br />

information from the sensors<br />

(mainly light curtains that<br />

detect the position of the<br />

product) and transfer the<br />

signals to the valves.<br />

The fieldbus system is<br />

responsible for about 70 drives<br />

in this installation.<br />

These SEW motors,<br />

located at various positions<br />

along the conveyor line, are<br />

equipped with integrated<br />

frequency converters.<br />

“This solution doesn’t require<br />

any switch boxes and terminal<br />

boxes in the field, where the<br />

space is already confined,”<br />

says Hermann Schindler<br />

who is responsible for the<br />

hardware planning. Using<br />

Murrelektronik’s Movimot<br />

function module, Transnova<br />

Ruf connects a component for<br />

the Cube67 system that makes<br />

these motors easy to connect.<br />

Because each port on a<br />

Cube67 module can handle<br />

two signals, Transnova Ruf’s<br />

Efficient circuit protection with MICO is provided for the packaging machines<br />

engineers use T-couplers<br />

to split the signals in some<br />

applications. In these cases the<br />

T-couplers connect M8 cables.<br />

To connect the data transfer unit<br />

that sends information from the<br />

palletising unit to the high rack<br />

warehouse, Transnova Ruf uses<br />

a Cube67 valve module with 16<br />

contacts for the exchange of<br />

digital signals.<br />

PRACTICAL CONCEPT<br />

By implementing Cube67,<br />

Transnova Ruf achieves<br />

a practical and versatile<br />

installation concept. It fits into<br />

the new packaging system<br />

and, due to its modular<br />

design, it is a practical solution<br />

that offers the potential for<br />

future expansion.<br />

Transnova Ruf supplies<br />

bespoke equipment for its<br />

customers and therefore uses<br />

a modular approach where<br />

the individual functions are<br />

split into modules that can<br />

be assembled depending on<br />

the application. “This gives<br />

us room for a wide variety of<br />

solutions,” explains Michael<br />

Ruf, TR executive board member.<br />

Regulations<br />

Permanent means of<br />

access rules part 4<br />

Paul Neil Laidler Dyson<br />

BUSINESS BUSINESS DIRECTOR LINE MANAGER FOR MACHINERY - MACHINERY SAFTEY TÜV AT SÜD TÜV PRODUCT SÜD PRODUCT SERVICE SERVICE<br />

EN ISO 14122 ‘Permanent means of access to machinery’ is a four part standard first introduced<br />

in 2010, with updates expected to come into force this year. Having previously covered<br />

Parts 1, 2 and 3 in the last two issues, we now review the key changes in Part 4<br />

EN ISO 14122-4 applies to<br />

fixed ladders which are a<br />

part of a machine.<br />

As with Parts 1, 2, and 3,<br />

previously Part 4 applied to<br />

both stationary and mobile<br />

machinery, whereas the new<br />

standard is only applicable<br />

to stationary machinery.<br />

While CEN intends to develop<br />

a standard for mobile<br />

machinery, until that is<br />

available we advise that<br />

EN ISO 14122-3 is still followed.<br />

In the Terms and Definitions,<br />

Section 3.1 introduces a new<br />

definition – ‘fixed ladder<br />

system/ladder system’. This is<br />

an ‘installation of at least one<br />

ladder flight, fall protection(s)<br />

where appropriate as well as<br />

landing(s) and/or platform(s)’.<br />

Two supporting diagrams<br />

highlight the difference<br />

between a ladder with one<br />

stile and a ladder with two<br />

stiles, as well as the different<br />

types of ladder flights (which<br />

is a continuous part of the<br />

fixed ladder).<br />

SAFETY CAGE<br />

The definition of a safety cage<br />

has also been updated, and<br />

is now defined in Section 3.7.1<br />

as a ‘cage-shaped protective<br />

device, fixed joined with<br />

the ladder, to minimise<br />

the risk of people falling<br />

from ladders’. Section 3.10<br />

introduces a definition of<br />

an ‘intermediate landing’, a<br />

horizontal structure between<br />

two consecutive ladder flights<br />

(used with ladders having<br />

staggered flights) which is<br />

designed to change the ladder<br />

flights or to rest.<br />

For the first time, a<br />

definition of different<br />

personnel is included:<br />

• Section 3.15, non-trained<br />

user are people without<br />

experience of how to use<br />

the fall arrester<br />

• Section 3.16, well-trained<br />

user are people with<br />

instruction and experience<br />

of how to use the fall arrester.<br />

Section 4 (choice and<br />

design of ladder systems)<br />

is new, pushing back the old<br />

Section 4 to become Section 5<br />

(safety requirements of ladder<br />

systems) in the new standard.<br />

Section 4.1.1 of the new<br />

standard now gives users<br />

a choice in construction<br />

approach, depending on<br />

available space. Section 4.2.2<br />

also introduces for the first<br />

time the concept of the ‘type<br />

of a fall protection device’.<br />

This states that the two main<br />

alternatives for protecting the<br />

users of ladders against falling<br />

from a height are:<br />

• a safety cage, or<br />

• a guided type fall arrester<br />

on rigid anchorage line<br />

(fall arrester).<br />

Section 4.3 (height of ladder<br />

flights and selection criteria<br />

of a fall protection device) and<br />

4.4 (platform and landings)<br />

are completely new, and<br />

include:<br />

• 4.3.1 Limits of space and use<br />

• 4.3.2 Ladder systems greater<br />

than 3m and less than/<br />

equal to 10m total height<br />

• 4.3.3 Ladder systems greater<br />

than 10m total height<br />

• 4.4.1 Necessity of platforms<br />

on arrival and departure<br />

areas<br />

• 4.4.2 Necessity on<br />

arrangement of platforms<br />

and landings<br />

• 4.4.3 Selection of platforms<br />

and landings.<br />

The updated standard will<br />

only apply to any machinery<br />

manufactured after the date<br />

of final publication<br />

Section 5 of the new<br />

standard is the Section 4 of the<br />

old standard, but still contains<br />

many updates and additions.<br />

The general requirements<br />

state that the ladder system<br />

should be designed so<br />

that the ladder itself and<br />

its attachment, withstand<br />

reasonably foreseeable static<br />

and dynamic conditions,<br />

including as appropriate that<br />

the following actions shall be<br />

applied:<br />

• 5.1.1 Permanent action<br />

(dead load)<br />

• 5.1.2 Variable action<br />

(rated load)<br />

• 5.1.3 Additional and<br />

Accidental action.<br />

Other new sections, which<br />

also incorporate elements<br />

from Section 4 of the old<br />

standard include:<br />

• 5.1.4 (ladder design)<br />

• 5.2 (ladder with two stiles)<br />

replaces 4.4 (ladder) and<br />

adds a new element<br />

relating to strength so<br />

that the ladder elements<br />

meet the test requirement<br />

set out in 6.2<br />

• 5.3 (ladder with one stile)<br />

• 5.4 (departure and arrival<br />

areas)<br />

• 5.5 (fall protection device).<br />

GUARD-RAIL<br />

Section 5.2.3 (connection<br />

of ladder and guard-rail) is<br />

completely new, and outlines<br />

the minimum requirements<br />

for when the guard-rail<br />

must be fitted to connect<br />

with the ladder in the range<br />

of the hand and knee rails.<br />

Section 5.7 is also new,<br />

outlining the requirements<br />

for moveable parts of fixed<br />

ladders. Likewise, Annex A<br />

(requirements on the design<br />

of anti-climb device) is a<br />

new addition and includes<br />

illustrative diagrams.<br />

In all cases, the updated<br />

standard will only apply to<br />

machinery manufactured after<br />

the date of final publication.<br />

This means that for older<br />

equipment, the 2010 standard<br />

EN ISO 14122 must still be<br />

followed.<br />

camera’ in the required<br />

exit orientation and press<br />

‘Teach’.<br />

There are three main<br />

methods of establishing<br />

the required correction<br />

angle:-<br />

■ Detect the angle of the<br />

bottle thread as shown.<br />

■ Position the ‘smart<br />

camera’ above the<br />

bottle to detect the<br />

bottle shape or motif.<br />

■ Position the ‘smart camera’ to the<br />

side of the bottle to detect shape<br />

or a motif.<br />

Bottles are precisely tracked through<br />

the process by synchronising the<br />

machine with the conveyor by<br />

means of an encoder.<br />
