PPMA matters<br />

There’s no<br />

slowdown in<br />

making things<br />

Grant Jamieson<br />

CHAIRMAN PPMA GROUP OF ASSOCIATIONS<br />

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

It’s a busy time of the year for many in manufacturing just<br />

now with no economic slowdown in evidence. Many PPMA<br />

members are reporting excellent order levels and demands for<br />

capital equipment remains buoyant. Customers have done their<br />

homework and are now rolling out their plans. We are a relevant<br />

manufacturing sector and I would argue we can be seen as a<br />

reliable barometer of people’s investment appetite.<br />

Not only are PPMA members rushing around at their day<br />

jobs, they have also been busy demonstrating their wares at<br />

various exhibitions at the NEC, Birmingham. The doors closed<br />

on Drives & Controls, Mach <strong>2016</strong> and Foodex <strong>2016</strong> in April, each<br />

demonstrating a diverse range of technologies. If you did not<br />

manage to visit, you can find reviews of each of these shows<br />

within the pages of this issue.<br />

Customers are rolling out<br />

their plans and demonstrating<br />

an appetite for investment<br />

MACHINE VISION<br />

FOR TRACK & TRACE<br />

There are also a couple of news items included this time on<br />

Open House events that have taken place recently, both of which<br />

were well attended by visitors from end-user companies.<br />

One in particular reports that every attendee had a live project<br />

to discuss during the event.<br />

Currently, it seems that customers need more capacity and<br />

this is not only leading to new equipment being ordered, but in<br />

my company’s case, enquiries about re-commissioning existing,<br />

previously mothballed machinery.<br />

Of course with rising demand, comes a further need for<br />

skilled people and this is a thorny and well publicised issue in<br />

manufacturing. The combination of an ageing workforce and<br />

many young people not finding engineering sexy is toxic to us<br />

all. We, at the PPMA, are trying to address this within our own<br />

membership with our BEST programme which this month, sees<br />

our first participants (see page 7).<br />

These initial bursaries are supporting two undergraduates.<br />

Our aim is to encourage and support students in relevant<br />

disciplines to develop the skills and experience they need to<br />

address the shortages in our industry. As well as proposing match<br />

funded options for colleges, scholarships for STEM 6th form<br />

students and day workshops in secondary schools, grants for<br />

apprenticeships are also available under this scheme.<br />

We are also encouraging students to visit our PPMA Total Show<br />

(NEC, Birmingham September 27 – 29) on the final afternoon. n<br />

PPMA member takes up<br />

funds to benefit its staff<br />

The first two bursaries<br />

awarded under<br />

the PPMA’s BEST<br />

educational scheme have been<br />

made to two young people<br />

from bespoke machinery<br />

supplier CME.<br />

These engineering<br />

undergraduate bursaries will<br />

see the PPMA BEST grant<br />

matched by CME. The aim of<br />

this scheme is to help encourage<br />

and support students in<br />

relevant disciplines to develop<br />

the skills and experience they<br />

need to address the shortages<br />

in the industry. It is designed to<br />

encourage existing employees<br />

to embark on courses to benefit<br />

their roles.<br />

In this instance, Ryan Parris<br />

is studying Mechanical<br />

Engineering at UWE in Bristol<br />

and is in his second year. This<br />

is a part time course which he<br />

combines with working in the<br />

design office at CME on various<br />

customer projects.<br />

At the same time, Jonathan<br />

Ryan Parris is at UWE in Bristol<br />

studying Mechanical Engineering<br />

Simmons is in his first year<br />

at Southampton University<br />

studying Electromechanical<br />

Engineering. His gap year was<br />

spent working at CME where<br />

he was involved in several<br />

overseas installations.<br />

CME believes this matchfunding<br />

is a great way of<br />

Jonathan Simmons is studying<br />

at Southampton University<br />

attracting and encouraging<br />

high calibre staff. “We get<br />

great value out of these two<br />

young people and we hope<br />

that helping them gain extra<br />

qualifications and experience<br />

will encourage them to stay,”<br />

The vast majority of<br />

PPMA (Processing &<br />

Association) members don’t<br />

want to exit Europe.<br />

When the trade body<br />

surveyed its members to ask<br />

if they thought they’d be better<br />

or worse off if the UK exited<br />

Europe, the answer was an<br />

overwhelming 82% believing<br />

they would be worse off and<br />

just 18% think leaving<br />

would bring benefits to the<br />

economy.<br />

Both sides of the Brexit<br />

debate had strong views with<br />

most of the answers showing a<br />

strong concern for trading and<br />

exports. Additionally, there is a<br />

fear of a narrowing market and<br />

damage to the UK economy<br />

from any retaliation from the<br />

EU if the UK does leave.<br />

82%<br />

of the membership felt leaving<br />

the Eurozone would bring<br />

economic danger to the UK<br />

Many of the participants<br />

talked about being part<br />

of a European group or a<br />

connected supply chain so the<br />

consequences of any UK exit<br />

would be serious for them.<br />

Business cut backs, increased<br />

selling costs, job losses,<br />

depleted trading relationships<br />

and general downsizing of UK<br />

offices were also foreseen.<br />

Other participants that<br />

favoured an exit felt that the<br />

money saved from current<br />

EU contributions could be<br />

reinvested in to UK businesses<br />

as well as infrastructure to<br />

the benefit of all. In summary,<br />

the survey showed an<br />

overwhelming sense of members<br />

understanding or perceiving<br />

a danger to the market and<br />

economy from exiting the EU.

Robotic chef can<br />

process ingredients<br />

with great care<br />

As Machinery Update went to<br />

press, OAL and the University<br />

of Lincoln were launching APRIL,<br />

a robotics and automation<br />

development described as<br />

changing the way food is<br />

manufactured. The patented<br />

robotic chef developed by OAL<br />

uses the latest cooking and<br />

material handling technologies<br />

to process ingredients with care<br />

on an industrial scale.<br />

APRIL allows users to scale<br />

up how chefs prepare restaurant<br />

food using flexible robotic cells.<br />

And, says Jake Norman of OAL,<br />

analysis of existing chilled food<br />

plants indicates a 7-14% bottom<br />

line improvement following the<br />

adoption of this technology.<br />

W www.aprilrobot.com<br />

renovation process.<br />

The £3 million investment<br />

is designed to meet the needs<br />

of the expanding business<br />

that has been housed in its<br />

original building in Swindon<br />

since 1985. The transformed<br />

facilities now include a<br />

Rockwell Automation is<br />

celebrating industry endorsement<br />

of its iTRAK motion control<br />

innovation category at the Motion<br />

Control Industry Awards dinner.<br />

The award for iTRAK was<br />

down to the revolutionary design<br />

and build of its independent<br />

movers solution for packaging and<br />

materials handling. By combining<br />

intermittent and continuous<br />

motion into an integrated solution,<br />

Rockwell says iTRAK offers its<br />

users a smaller machine footprint<br />

with reduced maintenance and<br />

changeover time. This increases<br />

throughput potential and flexibility.<br />

Judges felt that iTRAK stood<br />

out in an excellent category because<br />

of its flexibility. They were also<br />

Vision technology day<br />

added value for guests<br />

Over fifty presentations over five tracks were completed during the event held at the Silverstone Wing in March<br />

The second UK Vision<br />

Technology Forum held<br />

by Stemmer Imaging<br />

at the Silverstone Wing saw<br />

more than 300 people gather<br />

for the seminar programme of<br />

over 50 presentations over five<br />

tracks and a mini exhibition<br />

featuring more than 30<br />

international machine vision<br />

technology suppliers.<br />

“We were delighted with<br />

every aspect of the event,”<br />

says Mark Williamson,<br />

director – corporate market<br />

development at Stemmer.<br />

“Attendance levels were<br />

excellent and we were pleased<br />

to welcome many new faces<br />

since over 50% of the visitors<br />

had not been to one of our<br />

events before.”<br />

The format gave attendees<br />

the flexibility to choose<br />

exactly which presentations<br />

they wanted to attend as<br />

well as plenty of time to visit<br />

the exhibition area. Each of<br />

the presentations typically<br />

attracted between 20 – 25<br />

delegates, but some had more<br />

than 40 people listening. The<br />

six ‘hands-on’ sessions for 3D<br />

imaging and the creation of<br />

machine vision applications<br />

using either smart cameras<br />

or multi-camera imaging<br />

software were once again,<br />

fully subscribed.<br />

“It was very rewarding to<br />

see many groups of visitors<br />

engaging in conversation<br />

throughout the day, taking<br />

advantage of the chance to<br />

network with each other and<br />

the vision specialists that were<br />

on hand,” says Williamson.<br />

“Many people commented<br />

on how useful these business<br />

discussions were.”<br />

• Here we highlight just a<br />

couple of sessions from<br />

the machine vision day.<br />

W www.stemmer-imaging.co.uk<br />

How smart cameras are changing the way<br />

vision is implemented in today’s factories<br />

Graham Brown from Teledyne<br />

DALSA’s spoke about how the<br />

advent of mobile computing<br />

platforms and the ‘internet<br />

of things’, has meant smart<br />

camera capability has never<br />

been greater.<br />

Once relegated to simple<br />

pixel counting algorithms,<br />

today’s smart cameras are<br />

far more powerful, and can<br />

implement sophisticated<br />

machine vision and image<br />

processing algorithms, he<br />

said. “All this and at prices<br />

that have never been lower.”<br />

For instance, the BOA is<br />

a highly integrated optical<br />

inspection tool for controlling<br />

quality and increasing<br />

productivity. It comprises all<br />

the elements of an industrial<br />

machine vision system in a tiny<br />

smart camera style package.<br />

Easy to use and inexpensive,<br />

Teledyne DALSA’s BOA<br />

leverages the full breadth<br />

and depth of the company’s<br />

design, engineering, and<br />

manufacturing expertise<br />

including sensor, camera,<br />

image-processing and vision<br />

software development to<br />

deliver the next generation<br />

in smart camera technology.<br />

BOA offers scalable vision<br />

solutions to satisfy a wide<br />

range of application needs<br />

from positioning robotic<br />

“Smart cameras are redefining<br />

machine vision for factory<br />

automation and beyond,”<br />

he told the conference.<br />

Fully shielded cables are reliable<br />

Considering<br />

cables is a<br />

smart move<br />

US manufacturer CEI Components<br />

Express warned delegates to not<br />

skimp on their choice of cabling for<br />

any of their machine vision projects.<br />

“Why would you jeopardise a<br />

multi-million dollar installation for<br />

the sake of spending a few more<br />

dollars on better quality cabling?”<br />

asked Steve Mott of CEI.<br />

“Don’t get the cheapest cable from<br />

the internet as it may not deliver<br />

what you need.”<br />

He also talked about not<br />

leaving the decision about cabling<br />

until the last minute as it was an<br />

integral part of any successful<br />

implementation project.<br />

There are many factors to<br />

consider when choosing the correct<br />

cable solution for vision systems<br />

such as application environment,<br />

mechanical, orientation and space<br />

constraints. “Vision designers<br />

must consider their industrial<br />

environment location when<br />

selecting a cable suitable for<br />

their systems in order to ensure<br />

the highest possible quality of<br />

implementation,” he said.<br />

Common factors that determine<br />

the appropriate cable include<br />

motion requirements (Static,<br />

C-Track, Robotic); temperature/<br />

flammability/gas emissions;<br />

solvent and UV resistance;<br />

IP Ratings, IP67 (liquids and<br />

water resistance) and finally, noise<br />

EMI/RFI (motors and welders).<br />

Primarily there are three main<br />

types of cables to consider: static<br />

– stationary/no movement; drag<br />

chain – continuous movement<br />

back and forth on X-Y axis and<br />

robotic – continuous movement<br />

including torsional through X-Y-Z<br />

axis as well as several common<br />

jacket material types.<br />

“To guarantee the performance<br />

you require I would urge you to<br />

choose fully shielded, certified<br />

products,” he said.

New Machinery<br />

Turnkey solution allows for<br />

easy legislation compliance<br />

Domino Printing Sciences<br />

has launched a complete<br />

compliance solution that<br />

meets all the requirements<br />

of current and impending<br />

pharmaceutical serialisation<br />

legislation. Called SerialTrac,<br />

it has been designed to allow<br />

turnkey installation on<br />

primary packaging lines.<br />

The solution is equipped<br />

to deal with both internallyand<br />

externally-generated<br />

serial numbers and also offers<br />

aggregation functionality<br />

as standard, including<br />

post-manufacture rework<br />

and repacking – essential<br />

to any pharmaceutical<br />

manufacturing process. And<br />

its patented data compression<br />

techniques reduce the reliance<br />

on large, cumbersome and<br />

expensive databases. “The<br />

high degree of standardisation<br />

means we can offer SerialTrac<br />

as a cost effective, scalable<br />

compliance tool which can be<br />

rapidly installed,” explains<br />

Jim Orford, commercial<br />

programme manager for<br />

SerialTrac at Domino.<br />

With the Delegated<br />

Acts associated with the<br />

EU Falsified Medicines<br />

Directive (FMD) now in the<br />

years’ time. Domino estimates<br />

that a significant proportion<br />

Jim Orford is in the SerialTrac team<br />

SerialTrac has been designed to allow turnkey installation on packaging lines<br />

hard-pressed to meet this<br />

deadline but for some at least,<br />

SerialTrac may be the answer.<br />

“The impact of the FMD<br />

and other serialisation<br />

schemes around the world<br />

should not be underestimated<br />

for any branch of the industry<br />

but Domino recognises that<br />

small to medium-sized<br />

businesses are particularly<br />

hard hit,” says Orford.<br />

“Typically these<br />

manufacturers do not have<br />

the infrastructure or resources<br />

readily available to create<br />

a bespoke solution or to<br />

integrate with an ERP system<br />

– yet they face exactly the<br />

same complexity challenges<br />

as operations ten times their<br />

size,” he says.<br />

Throughout the serialisation<br />

journey, Domino and other<br />

commentators have repeatedly<br />

stated that no single supplier<br />

can provide a complete<br />

solution addressing all the<br />

core disciplines – which<br />

include code generation<br />

and management, code<br />

application and verification,<br />

pack handling, reject and<br />

data storage,<br />

management<br />

and reporting.<br />

Domino’s<br />

response to<br />

this problem,<br />

and the<br />

culmination<br />

of more<br />

than three<br />

years’ work<br />

for the team<br />

involved, is<br />

SerialTrac, which is produced<br />

under the Domino brand by<br />

a consortium of companies<br />

with complementary expertise.<br />

The result, it says, is a proven,<br />

‘out of the box’ serialisation<br />

product that combines best in<br />

class technological solutions<br />

for all aspects of serialisation,<br />

synchronised in a single<br />

SerialTrac Carton EU FMD Code<br />

product from a single supplier.<br />

Most serialisation projects to<br />

date have been out of necessity<br />

based on a bespoke solution<br />

but with SerialTrac, Domino<br />

has taken a different approach,<br />

recognising that the higher the<br />

degree of customisation, the<br />

greater the complexity.<br />

To this end, SerialTrac is not an<br />

application-specific solution;<br />

rather, Domino has called on<br />

the best minds in the business<br />

to create a master specification<br />

that covers the widest possible<br />

range of user requirements.<br />

If the specification does not<br />

cover the application at hand,<br />

then SerialTrac is not the<br />

solution. However, where<br />

the application meets the<br />

specification, the advantage<br />

of SerialTrac is that it is a<br />

complete solution that can<br />

be installed, working and<br />

compliant with minimal<br />

impact on production.<br />

Secure code generation and<br />

management functionality<br />

is based on the Codentify<br />

traceability solution which is<br />

widely proven in the tobacco<br />

sector for fraud prevention and<br />

fiscal recovery. At its heart is<br />

a powerful algorithm<br />

featuring asymetric<br />

encryption<br />

which generates<br />

random codes<br />

from a virtually<br />

infinite number<br />

of combinations.<br />

Installation on<br />

a typical line can<br />

be completed<br />

with minimal<br />

impact to any<br />

production environment<br />

which compares extremely<br />

favourably with the install<br />

requirements for bespoke<br />

systems, which are proving<br />

lengthy for many of the<br />

contractors currently at work<br />

in the field, says Domino.<br />

Bulk bag<br />

filler is easy<br />

to operate<br />

A new rear-post bulk bag filler<br />

featuring a patented swingdown<br />

fill head that pivots to the<br />

operator at floor level for safe,<br />

ergonomic spout connections,<br />

and a low-profile loading deck<br />

that allows removal of filled bags<br />

using a pallet jack is available<br />

from Flexicon (Europe).<br />

The cantilevered fill head pivots<br />

downward to a vertical orientation<br />

that places the inflatable bag spout<br />

seal, inflator button, and four<br />

bag loop latches within an arm’s<br />

length of an operator standing<br />

on the plant floor, eliminating the<br />

need to climb steps, strain or risk<br />

injury associated with overhead<br />

connections to conventional fill<br />

heads in operation.<br />

Once the operator connects<br />

the bag straps and activates the<br />

inflatable bag spout collar, the<br />

filler automatically pivots the fill<br />

head to horizontal, inflates the bag<br />

to remove creases, and activates<br />

a flow control inlet valve or feed<br />

conveyor. As load cells register the<br />

gain in weight, the controller raises<br />

and vibrates the loading deck at<br />

programmed intervals to densify<br />

material and promote flow into<br />

bottom corners of the bag.<br />

Once the bag reaches its target<br />

weight, the controller automatically<br />

stops the flow of incoming material,<br />

deflates the bag spout collar and<br />

releases the bag straps, allowing<br />

the filled bag to be removed.<br />

designed to exceed the current<br />

standards of speed at the end<br />

of a line by matching the needs<br />

of our customers to have the<br />

fastest solutions available on<br />

the market,” he says.<br />

This new high performance<br />

range includes the Vega<br />

Advance shrinkwrapper, the<br />

Pegasus Advance palletising<br />

robot and the Orion Advance<br />

in-line palletiser, all of which<br />

are high speed options.<br />

For instance, the<br />

shrinkwrapper can reach<br />

150 cycles per minute<br />

with film only and 120<br />

cycles a minute with a<br />

tray and film, the<br />

robotised palletising system<br />

offers 630 layers an hour and<br />

the in line palletiser can reach<br />

up to 570 layers an hour.<br />

The Pegasus robotised<br />

option includes the Ocme<br />

patented motorised gripper<br />

head for safe control and<br />

offers customers a high degree<br />

of customisation in terms of<br />

pallet layouts or pad and tray<br />

New Machinery<br />

End of line range is a modular<br />

offer delivering reliable quality<br />

Alpma GB is now<br />

representing end<br />

of line packaging<br />

machines from German<br />

company Somic in the UK<br />

and Ireland. This is the first<br />

time a UK representative has<br />

been appointed as previously,<br />

machinery was sold direct<br />

from Germany.<br />

The company’s latest<br />

mechatronic 424 series<br />

range includes tray packers,<br />

wraparound units, cartoners,<br />

case erectors, packers and<br />

closers as well as complete<br />

lines, all of which are<br />

engineered within a standard<br />

modular system. This allows<br />

maximum flexibility for users<br />

and the ability to use single<br />

units or to incorporate a<br />

complete line into their plants.<br />

One of the key benefits<br />

of Somic equipment says<br />

Alpma is the combination<br />

of maximum performance,<br />

producing high quality final<br />

cases, within a small footprint.<br />

The flexibility of the range<br />

also allows users to adapt<br />

their production processes to<br />

changing market conditions<br />

quickly and easily.<br />

industry leading position,” says<br />

Nick Aikenhead, managing<br />

director of Alpma GB. “These<br />

are machines for high speed<br />

and challenging applications<br />

where presentation and quality<br />

are priorities.<br />

“Somic has some of the<br />

most competitive equipment<br />

to offer,” he tells Machinery<br />

Update.<br />

Somic was founded by an<br />

ex-Alpma employee over 40<br />

years ago and today, as well<br />

as being close neighbours in<br />

Germany the companies use<br />

the same technologies, from<br />

Elau for motion control and<br />

mechatronics. “This allows<br />

Alpma GB to be well placed<br />

to support Somic equipment<br />

and our customers in the UK,”<br />

says Aikenhead.<br />

Satisfied customers in the<br />

UK talk about the quality of<br />

the final case achieved on the<br />

equipment. Somic systems do<br />

not fold the final case around<br />

the product, but fold it around<br />

a folding head which produces<br />

a superior case shape and<br />

consistent quality, said one<br />

user. “This was important to<br />

our business, especially as<br />

our products are not always<br />

uniform in shape,” he said.<br />

line. In operation, stitch length<br />

and thread tension can be<br />

adjusted easily and a rotary knife<br />

can be used for accurate and<br />

faster thread cutting.<br />

Sewing systems can be manual<br />

which see the sewing head<br />

suspended to a cable or to the<br />

ceiling and involve the operator<br />

completing all of the operations.<br />

A basic sewing system can be<br />

supplied where the sewing head<br />

is on a single leg pedestal.<br />

Here, the already reshaped bag is<br />

introduced into the sewing head<br />

by hand or automatically.<br />

systems can be incorporated into<br />

new or existing packing lines to<br />

sew the bags faster, neater and<br />

with fewer breakdowns.<br />

This improves efficiency and<br />

very quickly using 3D CAD and<br />

3D printing, which is also used<br />

to make test moulds for trials.<br />

To ensure fast changeover<br />

between production runs,<br />

the mould system uses a new<br />

carrier design with clip-in<br />

moulds that allows rapid<br />

low cost product change by<br />

replacing just the moulds<br />

rather than the complete<br />

carrier system. This widens the<br />

range of products that a single<br />

versatility may be enhanced by<br />

the ability to deposit multiple<br />

shapes in different colours<br />

simultaneously.<br />

Carton/tray former offers cost<br />

benefits for lower speed users<br />

Bradman Lake has<br />

launched a new variant<br />

of its three axes servo<br />

HSS double head, glue and<br />

lock style carton/tray former.<br />

The new single head version<br />

has a smaller footprint and is<br />

more cost effective for lower<br />

speed applications.<br />

This new machine was<br />

initially developed for a<br />

multinational chocolate<br />

and food company that<br />

had placed an order for<br />

a complete integrated<br />

packaging machinery system<br />

which had to be located<br />

into a confined floor space.<br />

Both the space available for<br />

such a machine combined<br />

with the requirement for<br />

low carton forming speeds,<br />

dictated a creative solution.<br />

Bradman Lake developed<br />

a ‘slimmed down’ single<br />

head version of the larger<br />

HSS former while retaining<br />

and enhancing the technical<br />

features of the unit.<br />

Included in the design is<br />

a low level, large capacity,<br />

powered and fully adjustable<br />

carton blank magazine<br />

Even coarse boards such as microfluted and B & C fluted can now be formed<br />

which is fully shaft adjusted<br />

to suit different carton sizes.<br />

Also, a servo motor powered<br />

vacuum carton feed bar has<br />

been included which, unlike<br />

older design vacuum feed<br />

bars, is fully adjustable to suit<br />

all carton sizes within the<br />

machine range and therefore<br />

a more economic item since no<br />

change parts are required.<br />

In operation, the carton<br />

blanks are shuttled forward<br />

and gripped at each side to<br />

ensure precise positioning<br />

of glue and consistent location<br />

above the carton plunger<br />

cavity. Hot melt glue is fired<br />

downwards with accuracy.<br />

Meanwhile, lock erect style<br />

cartons can also be handled<br />

on this former by just turning<br />

off the glue firing.<br />

The carton or tray plunger<br />

has also been redesigned<br />

to give it another technical<br />

feature. Unlike many formers<br />

which use mechanical drives,<br />

Bradman Lake software<br />

designers have programmed<br />

the speed of the plunger<br />

descent and ascent using<br />

electronic cam profiles so that<br />

the mechanism can plunge<br />

downwards fast then dwell for<br />

milliseconds to permit glue<br />

compression or mechanical<br />

lock engagement and then<br />

retract fast. This programming<br />

allows fast forming speeds<br />

of up to 60 cartons or trays<br />

per minute (depending upon<br />

blank size) to be achieved.<br />

Another benefit of this<br />

servo programming of the<br />

plunger action is that the unit<br />

can be programmed to plunge<br />

further into the forming<br />

cavity which allows the new<br />

HSS single head machine<br />

to glue or lock form cartons<br />

or trays with taller height<br />

side walls.<br />

New Machinery<br />

Label applicator allows<br />

3-sided case placement<br />

Autolabel has developed<br />

a pallet labelling<br />

applicator that complies<br />

with the strict GS1 Serial<br />

Shipment Container Code<br />

(SSCC) as it can place<br />

barcode labels on three sides<br />

of a case, not the standard<br />

two sides.<br />

“We have designed the<br />

Pallet Flex Wipe system to be<br />

safe, user friendly, extremely<br />

compact, fast and future<br />

proof for all labelling needs,”<br />

says Denis Brett, managing<br />

director of Industrial<br />

Labelling Systems (ILS).<br />

“Both the compact nature of<br />

the unit and the fact that same<br />

applicator can label all three<br />

sides offers great flexibility,”<br />

he continues.<br />

Flex Wipe is built upon two<br />

rotating movements. The inner<br />

arm can rotate 360deg and the<br />

labels can leave the printer in<br />

two directions. The outer arm<br />

can rotate 200deg.<br />

A camera based scanner is<br />

located behind the applicator<br />

pad. In operation, when<br />

a validation check scan is<br />

required, the arm moves away<br />

from the pallet and the outer<br />

The Flex Wipe system can apply labels to three sides of a case in operation<br />

arm turns 180deg to take a<br />

picture of the label. “Pallet<br />

labelling is the foundation of<br />

traceability within the supply<br />

chain,” says Brett.<br />

The pallet Flex Wipe<br />

system is fully compatible<br />

with Autolabel’s existing<br />

T63 printer, using the same<br />

Autolabel standard applicator<br />

interface as with all the other<br />

applicators in the range.<br />

Other advantages of the<br />

system include the lightweight<br />

arms which make the<br />

applicator fast but hazard<br />

free; there is no need for<br />

any guarding; it is safe for<br />

operators and it has the same<br />

configuration regardless of the<br />

labelling application required<br />

(front, side or back).<br />

False rejects<br />

eliminated<br />

for nut firm<br />

Replacing its existing metal<br />

detectors with five Fortress<br />

Technology’s Stealth Vertex<br />

systems has yielded a 40%<br />

improvement in sensitivity and<br />

eliminated the issue of false<br />

rejects for a leading UK nut and<br />

dried fruit processing and<br />

packing company.<br />

Having purchased metal<br />

detection equipment from several<br />

different suppliers over the<br />

years, the company saw this as<br />

an opportunity to rationalise its<br />

sourcing approach. It turned to<br />

Fortress, whose technology had<br />

previously proved reliable. The<br />

mini Vertex units could also be<br />

fully integrated with its existing<br />

multihead weighers and vertical<br />

baggers on its site.<br />

“What we needed was to<br />

get more productivity out of<br />

this equipment by retrofitting<br />

them with reliable in-line metal<br />

detection units,” says a company<br />

spokesperson. “The small,<br />

compact Vertex head fitted<br />

beautifully within the available<br />

envelope, and we liked the<br />

fact that Fortress offered full<br />

installation and integration with<br />

our existing kit.”<br />

The ultra-slim Vertex<br />

from Fortress detects metal<br />

contaminants in free-falling<br />

product prior to final packaging.<br />

The sensitive unit uses digital<br />

signal processing technology<br />

to ensure detection of the<br />

smallest ferrous, non-ferrous<br />

and stainless steel contaminants.<br />

Complying with stringent<br />

HACCP regulations, the built-in<br />

data collection software with<br />

USB data transfer establishes<br />

the Vertex as an effective critical<br />

control point.<br />

Screening a variety of nuts<br />

immediately prior to bagging at<br />

speeds of 80 packs per minute,<br />

the new metal detectors have<br />

eliminated false rejects at the<br />

company altogether.<br />

British-built capper is<br />

the answer for coffees<br />

Karmelle launched its<br />

new rotary capper<br />

at last year’s PPMA<br />

Show and first to install this<br />

British-built machine is coffee<br />

manufacturer Beanies the<br />

Flavour Company. The coffee<br />

maker had first seen Karmelle<br />

equipment at a previous<br />

PPMA exhibition which led<br />

to a project in 2014. This saw<br />

a three point wraparound<br />

labelling machine installed.<br />

“We have had previous<br />

dealings with Karmelle and<br />

we find them very easy to<br />

work with,” explains Beanies<br />

production manager Lee Hull.<br />

“The company advised on<br />

the size, speed and overall<br />

specification of the rotary<br />

capper and we liked what<br />

we heard,” he continues.<br />

“A price was agreed; it was<br />

as easy as that.”<br />

MARKET REQUIREMENT<br />

Karmelle developed the<br />

machine as a response to a<br />

gap in the UK market. The<br />

company says<br />

it was able to<br />

fill this need<br />

for a British<br />

machine able to<br />

compete with<br />

the overseas<br />

machines on<br />

speed, quality<br />

and price with<br />

the added<br />

convenience of<br />

relative close<br />

proximity<br />

for easy<br />

communication,<br />

quick servicing<br />

and change parts supplies.<br />

This factor was certainly<br />

important to Beanies.<br />

“We find buying from<br />

UK-based manufacturers<br />

a better option due to the<br />

support network they offer,”<br />

Hull tells Machinery Update.<br />

“Overall, the machine has<br />

been working well,” he says.<br />

Beanies is the first customer<br />

The capper has been working very well at Beanies The Flavour Company<br />

“We have had a few teething<br />

issues but Karmelle are only<br />

a phone call away with help<br />

and advice if needed.”<br />

Also, Karmelle’s flexible<br />

approach allowed it to install<br />

the capper over weekends to<br />

avoid interfering with Beanies<br />

manufacturing<br />

process.<br />

In operation,<br />

the Karmelle<br />

rotary automatic<br />

capping machine<br />

is designed<br />

for closing<br />

various types<br />

of containers<br />

with screw,<br />

press-on and<br />

pilfer proof caps.<br />

The machine<br />

is especially<br />

suitable for<br />

use in the food<br />

processing, cosmetic and<br />

chemical industries but as all<br />

the machines are bespoke,<br />

they can be adjusted to suit<br />

individual needs.<br />

Containers queue up before<br />

entering a single star wheel<br />

which presents the bottles into<br />

the rotating capping station.<br />

The star wheel then indexes<br />

the bottle into position and<br />

the cap is then screwed home<br />

as the capper rotates.<br />

The capped container then<br />

leaves the machine via a<br />

second star wheel.<br />

These caps are held in<br />

a low level hopper which<br />

automatically feeds the caps<br />

up to the elevated sorting<br />

drum. The hopper is fitted<br />

with a low level visual<br />

alarm to alert the operator<br />

of when the hopper requires<br />

replenishing.<br />

ANGLED SORTING DRUM<br />

This elevated, angled sorting<br />

drum presents the caps upside<br />

down into a discharge chute,<br />

where they are orientated into<br />

the correct position. The inner<br />

caps then enter a magazine<br />

where they are placed onto<br />

the container as it passes<br />

underneath and just before it<br />

enters the press which closes<br />

the cap down.<br />

Containers are stabilised<br />

during the pressing action by<br />

a side drive which keeps time<br />

with the moving conveyor<br />

underneath.<br />

Servo drive replacement has<br />

delivered cereal bar benefits<br />

Outdated drive technology<br />

at Weetabix’s Alpen<br />

factory that was<br />

impacting wrapping efficiencies<br />

has been replaced to bring<br />

production line gains<br />

including extending the<br />

machine’s life.<br />

About a quarter of capacity<br />

of the Alpen bar production<br />

line is handled by a Bosch<br />

HSM wrapping machine.<br />

Critical to the operation of this<br />

machine were IRT 1300 servo<br />

drives, but as they had been<br />

discontinued, replacement<br />

parts were becoming difficult<br />

to source. Karl Wigley,<br />

reliability engineer at Weetabix<br />

Food Company, was charged<br />

with addressing this issue<br />

and finding a cost effective<br />

solution. And a solution that<br />

could be implemented with<br />

minimum downtime and risk<br />

to the production line that<br />

operates round the clock.<br />

“Our original wrapping<br />

machine was fitted with<br />

fourteen IRT 1300 servo drives<br />

which were located in two<br />

cabinets,” explains Wigley.<br />

“The flow wrapper still met our<br />

requirements and the IRT servo<br />

drives – critical to the operation<br />

of the machine – were running<br />

smoothly,” he says.<br />

OBSOLETE DRIVES<br />

“Unfortunately, the IRT drives<br />

had been superseded by a new<br />

generation of drives, the 2000<br />

series, meaning replacement<br />

parts were no longer being<br />

manufactured so we were<br />

faced with the decision to<br />

replace our servo drives.”<br />

Weetabix systematically<br />

implements reliability<br />

centred maintenance<br />

(RCM) and condition based<br />

monitoring (CBM) to<br />

increase machine uptime,<br />

increase cost effectiveness<br />

of capital investments and<br />

improve decision making<br />

Reliability engineer at Weetabix Food Company Karl Wigley has found a cost effective solution for Alpen bars<br />

– an essential part of its<br />

production process. Weighing<br />

the immediate financial<br />

benefits of renovating existing<br />

technology with the longer<br />

term benefits of deploying a<br />

more contemporary design<br />

with increased efficiency and<br />

performance, Wigley and<br />

the Weetabix team made the<br />

decision to entirely upgrade<br />

its servo drives.<br />

Having made the decision<br />

to enhance its production<br />

line, Weetabix approached<br />

Quin Systems, a distributor<br />

and technical support<br />

organisation in the UK and<br />

Ireland for Swiss-based IRT<br />

to take its existing 1300<br />

drives and upgrade them to<br />

the 2000 series. Fearing a<br />

About a quarter of the capacity of the Alpen bar production line is handled<br />

drop in production during<br />

the installation process,<br />

the two companies worked<br />

together to agree a work plan<br />

that minimised risk and<br />

inconvenience from the outset.<br />

The solution was found<br />

in upgrading the cabinets<br />

on separate dates and on<br />

weekend shifts so that normal<br />

practice could resume without<br />

causing any financial loss.<br />

COST EFFECTIVE<br />

For maximum efficiency, Quin<br />

fitted the new IRT drives in<br />

place of the existing drives in<br />

the same cabinet space and<br />

reused the existing motors,<br />

encoders, command cables<br />

and the control system.<br />

This delivered the most cost<br />

effective solution. “Quin<br />

Shrinkwrapper increases<br />

output using less power<br />

Johnsons Stalbridge<br />

Linen in Glasgow is the<br />

first laundry company<br />

to take delivery of a brand<br />

new shrinkwrapper from<br />

Shrinkwrap Machinery and<br />

has been so pleased with the<br />

purchase it has ordered two<br />

further machines for its sites<br />

in the South.<br />

“For the past month we have<br />

used Shrinkwrap Machinery’s<br />

new machine which was<br />

delivered and installed<br />

on time, explains Alan<br />

Mulholland, group operations<br />

director at Johnsons Stalbridge<br />

Linen. “Although this machine<br />

sits on a smaller footprint, it<br />

delivers a higher pack output<br />

and uses less power.<br />

“We are so pleased with<br />

the new machine that we<br />

have just ordered two further<br />

machines for two of our sites<br />

in the South.”<br />

The machine has a number<br />

of new features and additions<br />

which have all been added<br />

with commercial laundries<br />

in mind. “We listened to<br />

our customers and took on<br />

their feedback,” says Jeremy<br />

Frith, technical director at<br />

Smooth lines and clear views allow for easy maintenance access for engineers<br />

Shrinkwrap. “We’ve been able<br />

to greatly improve pack side<br />

closure, something that the<br />

industry is demanding more<br />

and more, we have improved<br />

the energy efficiency of the<br />

heat tunnel by reducing<br />

heaters, improving air flow<br />

and finally we have ramped up<br />

the insulation to an incredibly<br />

high standard.”<br />

Speed wise, this machine<br />

will happily work its way<br />

through 1200 packs per hour<br />

using a 13 micron film; and the<br />

progressive infeed machine<br />

will increase that to 1500<br />

packs per hour where there<br />

is a requirement.<br />

“Aesthetically our machine<br />

range has had a total overhaul<br />

with ease of maintenance<br />

access in mind for engineers at<br />

all times,” says Frith.<br />

Special scale brings<br />

higher productivity<br />

across tofu range<br />

Tofu King has installed a semiautomatic<br />

Dataweigh multifunctional<br />

scale from Yamato as<br />

this weighing solution was set<br />

up quickly and worked ‘straight<br />

out of the box’ to meet rising<br />

demand for the company’s bean<br />

curd products.<br />

The scale is portioning and<br />

feeding the packing area and is<br />

capable of reaching speeds of up<br />

to 30 packs a minute on retail<br />

packs of Tofu King products. The<br />

machine has fitted into the limited<br />

space available and is working with<br />

other, existing machines.<br />

Hygienic and waterproof, the<br />

scale can handle both dry and<br />

marinated tofu products because<br />

the hoppers and conveyor<br />

belt can be removed easily for<br />

cleaning and maintenance.<br />

The flexibility that this has brought<br />

to the food company has enabled<br />

it to adjust the machinery<br />

easily to suit different products,<br />

weights and sizes required.<br />

“The process of packing tofu<br />

products was done manually<br />

before because of potential<br />

problems packing various<br />

weights of both dry and wet<br />

products which contain oil, chilli<br />

marinated tofu for example,” says<br />

Cartoners keep pace with high<br />

speed spice mix lines in India<br />

With the co-operation<br />

of its new agent in<br />

India, Kliklok has<br />

secured an order for two fully<br />

automatic end load cartoning<br />

lines packing four different<br />

size bags of aromatic spice mix<br />

at 330 cartons a minute.<br />

To achieve this speed, Kliklok<br />

has designed a brand new<br />

variant of its 6in pitch Prima<br />

end load cartoner incorporating<br />

servo motors to replace<br />

mechanical drive mechanisms<br />

throughout the machine. This<br />

eliminates time-consuming<br />

hand wheel adjustments with<br />

quick and easy automatic<br />

adjustments. For this particular<br />

project, to meet the specific<br />

requirements of the customer,<br />

each Prima was enhanced with<br />

a number of optional features<br />

to maintain efficiency and<br />

consistently high performance.<br />

REPEATABLE SIZE CHANGES<br />

ARE COMPLETED IN UNDER<br />

10minutes<br />

thanks to the ‘easy-fit’ design<br />

of the cartoners change parts<br />

Kliklok’s patented rotary<br />

carton feeder has the ability to<br />

run cartons with large quality<br />

variations which is key to<br />

maintaining efficiency on such<br />

a high speed line<br />

The deployment of RFID tags<br />

ensures that the change parts<br />

fitted are precisely matched to<br />

the SKU selected on the menu<br />

screen before the machine<br />

can run. This fail safe system<br />

ensures maximum productivity<br />

and eliminates any downtime<br />

due to operator error.<br />

For the product loading<br />

operation prior to cartoning,<br />

for instance, allows<br />

pallet patterns to be<br />

programed independently.<br />

Four standard<br />

configurations are<br />

trays, shrinkwrapped<br />

bundles of products<br />

and wraparound boxes<br />

as well as an option to<br />

Brewery<br />

is now in<br />

full control<br />

Rockwell Automation has<br />

supplied South African<br />

Breweries (SAB) with its first<br />

fully automated and networked<br />

EtherNet/IP-based control<br />

system for its new maltings plant<br />

in Alrode, Gauteng.<br />

The new control system will<br />

integrate traditionally disparate<br />

malt production processes into<br />

a single networked EtherNet/<br />

IP-based solution to provide<br />

plant-wide visibility and<br />

actionable data from the malting<br />

plant’s production floor to SAB’s<br />

top floor. This new maltings plant<br />

will account for more than half of<br />

the breweries’ South African and<br />

Namibian malt production when<br />

fully commissioned this year.<br />

SAB contacted Rockwell to<br />

design a fully automated and<br />

networked EtherNet/IP solution<br />

for the plant, a first for SAB. The<br />

solution implemented connects<br />

all data from the plant floor to<br />

the rest of the SAB enterprise,<br />

transforming the plant into a<br />

‘Connected Enterprise’.<br />

“By converging operations<br />

technology and information<br />

technology, we enable SAB secure<br />

access to operational, business<br />

and transactional data to improve<br />

the malting plant’s supply chain,<br />

economic and sustainable<br />

performance,” explains Adrian<br />

van Wyk from Rockwell.<br />

All devices and processes within<br />

the plant are integrated in a single<br />

secure network with dual-port<br />

EtherNet/IP-based hardware<br />

connected in a Device Level Ring<br />

configuration. “This provides<br />

a strong future-proof technical<br />

solution with high-performance<br />

delivery and Network resilience at<br />

Device Layer,” he says.<br />

“By enabling secure access to<br />

actionable run-time production<br />

data, machine diagnostics and<br />

automatic fault-finding, SAB<br />

gains full visibility of the maltings<br />

plant, ultimately facilitating a<br />

faster time to market.<br />

To ensure production line efficiencies were maximised, tna installed a fully integrated control system across the line<br />

Tailored solution meets<br />

snack demand increases<br />

Algerian snack<br />

manufacturer<br />

Maravilla has increased<br />

production capacity by 25%<br />

since installing customised<br />

solutions from tna.<br />

The replacement of an<br />

outdated manual process with<br />

optimised and automated<br />

conveying systems enabled<br />

Maravilla to achieve its<br />

primary goal of boosting<br />

production capabilities,<br />

while also fuelling company<br />

growth and improving overall<br />

profitability.<br />

In light of the growing<br />

demand for snack products in<br />

the domestic Algerian market<br />

and overseas, Maravilla wanted<br />

to boost production capacity<br />

to ensure it stayed competitive<br />

in this dynamic sector.<br />

Working with tna, Maravilla<br />

integrated nine tna roflo high<br />

throw vibratory conveyors,<br />

alongside three mini feeders<br />

into its potato/corn pellet line.<br />

The snack manufacturer also<br />

updated its current control<br />

systems by investing in the<br />

latest integration technologies<br />

from tna.<br />

As a result of the installation<br />

of tna’s equipment, Maravilla<br />

now benefits from a more<br />

efficient production process<br />

and also reduced downtime<br />

at the production plant.<br />

In every production<br />

line, plant managers want<br />

to optimise the speed<br />

and performance of their<br />

manufacturing to ensure<br />

targets are met, says tna.<br />

Products therefore need to<br />

be processed more quickly<br />

and efficiently. Incorporating<br />

effective conveying equipment<br />

into production lines is critical<br />

to achieving this.<br />

OVERALL EFFICIENCY<br />

To maintain and improve<br />

its production capabilities<br />

and overall efficiency, and<br />

to fully benefit from these<br />

emerging opportunities in<br />

kids snacks, Maravilla needed<br />

a high performance, flexible<br />

conveying solution that could<br />

be easily integrated alongside<br />

existing systems for a<br />

smoother distribution process.<br />

tna’s roflo VM 3 was supplied<br />

to achieve the company’s<br />

production efficiency<br />

objectives. This conveyor<br />

incorporates a special reaction<br />

base design combined with an<br />

intelligent microprocessor,<br />

for a much greater stroke<br />

length at a lower frequency.<br />

This feature enabled<br />

Maravilla to improve<br />

throughput by 25% and<br />

achieve a smoother transfer<br />

of its products throughout<br />

the manufacturing process.<br />

Due to increasingly<br />

stringent food safety<br />

regulations in the country,<br />

Maravilla was also looking<br />

to integrate a simple design<br />

system with smooth surfaces<br />

and no blind spots or<br />

areas where product and<br />

microorganisms could build<br />

up – to reduce the risk of<br />

cross-contamination.<br />

tna’s roflo VM 3 features no<br />

metal-to-metal bacteria build<br />

up areas and all conveyor<br />

trays are fully welded or<br />

scalloped, meaning Maravilla<br />

now benefits from reduced<br />

contamination risk.<br />

New system for drinks maker<br />

Dual sealing<br />

Following a request from an<br />

ingredients supplier to a global<br />

soft drinks company for extra<br />

protection from cross product<br />

contamination during the<br />

case sealing process, Endoline<br />

Machinery developed a special<br />

case sealing system that both<br />

glues and tapes filled cases.<br />

With additional technology<br />

to handle both single wall and<br />

twin walled cases to ensure a<br />

precise seal each time, the new<br />

dual sealing system offers an<br />

alternative to using separate tape<br />

and glue machines. Compactly<br />

designed to meet with the tight<br />

space requirements, the machine<br />

was built to meet the size of the<br />

previous case sealer, which only<br />

offered a glue finish.<br />

The beverage company<br />

produces the ingredients for<br />

a range of different varieties<br />

of soft drinks and supplies<br />

bottling factories worldwide.<br />

One particular ingredient is the<br />

granules which are used in the<br />

production of diet and low sugar<br />

drink alternatives for a global<br />

soft drinks company. It was this<br />

product which prompted the<br />

request for heightened sealing<br />

capabilities to meet stringent<br />

regulations placed on them<br />

by the drinks maker.<br />

With a daily output of over<br />

10,000 cases per day, the dual<br />

sealing system is achieving a<br />

perfect seal on cases ranging<br />

from almost empty to 25kg<br />

in weight.<br />

Food and drink industry<br />

saw latest developments<br />

PPMA members were<br />

out in force at Foodex<br />

<strong>2016</strong> held at the NEC,<br />

Birmingham in April with<br />

many launching equipment<br />

and demonstrating machinery<br />

to suit all sizes of food and<br />

drink businesses.<br />

Sales and new contacts<br />

were secured throughout the<br />

three days but some were<br />

disappointed with the number<br />

of visitors at the event and felt<br />

that last year’s PPMA Show<br />

had been busier.<br />

One stand that was busy<br />

when Machinery Update<br />

visited was Multivac UK and,<br />

explains Laura Affleck, orders<br />

had been secured throughout<br />

the event. “We aimed our<br />

Winkworth<br />

demonstrated its<br />

new benchtop<br />

ManyMix unit which<br />

is ideal for factories<br />

where space is at<br />

a premium or for<br />

technicians wishing<br />

to place it on a<br />

laboratory bench.<br />

It is smaller than<br />

its predecessor, the<br />

Many Mix 3-in-1,<br />

but still offers<br />

performance and mixing<br />

capabilities.<br />

exhibit at small to medium<br />

sized food companies and<br />

we’ve secured a healthy<br />

amount of leads,” she said.<br />

“We have also exhibited<br />

our recipe management line<br />

to demonstrate our skills<br />

in supplying integrated<br />

packaging solutions.”<br />

One exhibitor that felt the<br />

biennial show was not as<br />

busy as last time was Grant<br />

Jamieson, managing director<br />

of mixer company Winkworth.<br />

“Footfall hasn’t been as high<br />

as previous shows but we have<br />

seen different people from<br />

customer organisations which<br />

is useful,” he said.<br />

Another PPMA member<br />

that had secured orders from<br />

Features include the compact<br />

footprint, digital variable<br />

the stand was metal detection<br />

company MDS Ceia. “The<br />

show has been surprisingly<br />

good for us with a decent<br />

amount of enquiries,” said<br />

sales & marketing director at<br />

the company David Hale.<br />

Aaron Bessell sells Fuji<br />

wrapping equipment at<br />

Paramount Packaging and he<br />

said the company had seen<br />

a good mix of new contacts<br />

as well as existing customers<br />

while marketing co-ordinator<br />

at Pacepacker, Andreas<br />

Fantousi was generally<br />

pleased with the quality of<br />

the visitors but, he told<br />

have liked a few more of them.<br />

New material offers safer uses<br />

Detectable<br />

material<br />

reduces risk<br />

Undetectable plastics used in<br />

food packaging could be a thing<br />

of the past with the new material<br />

that is food safe and metal<br />

and x-ray machine detectable<br />

launched by Detectamet at the<br />

three day exhibition.<br />

The material can be used to<br />

make plastics sacks in all practical<br />

sizes and thicknesses, commonly<br />

used by ingredients suppliers<br />

and it can also be used to make<br />

detectable plastics liners for<br />

paper sacks. From strong 25 kilo<br />

sacks to small sachets, this new<br />

material can be tailor made for<br />

specific purposes.<br />

Customers can select from<br />

nine colours to identify brand<br />

or purpose or to provide extra<br />

visibility. The special polyethylene<br />

material has been found to be<br />

safe for direct contact with food<br />

and complies with US and EU<br />

regulations.<br />

“Packaging is essential<br />

for protecting food and food<br />

ingredients but until now, there<br />

has been little packaging that<br />

metal and x-ray inspection<br />

systems could find and reject<br />

should it accidentally get into<br />

the finished food,” says James<br />

Chrismas, managing director at<br />

Detectamet. “I have been asked<br />

several times if we can reduce the<br />

risk of contamination by pieces<br />

of ingredient sacks and this new<br />

material is a significant response<br />

to this challenge,” he said.<br />

New Machinery Review<br />

New software solution is<br />

aid to productivity gains<br />

Cimlogic<br />

announced the<br />

release of new<br />

software solution<br />

OEE Express at<br />

the event.<br />

The company<br />

believes that Cimlogic<br />

OEE Express (powered<br />

by TrakSYS) with its<br />

fast implementation<br />

and rapid return on<br />

investment will give<br />

manufacturers the edge<br />

over their competition<br />

by improving<br />

effectiveness,<br />

increasing output,<br />

reducing downtime and<br />

improving quality.<br />

Cimlogic’s OEE<br />

software provides a<br />

highly integrated application<br />

that helps manufacturers to<br />

improve the productivity of<br />

manufacturing processes<br />

and accurately measure true<br />

plant productivity.<br />

High levels of downtime and<br />

work in progress, low capacity<br />

utilisation and high labour<br />

costs can all have an impact<br />

on business profitability and<br />

performance. OEE Express is<br />

IWM exhibited its T200 oneman<br />

operated traywasher, the<br />

CW13 EX BT cabinet washer<br />

and the EC20 200 litre Euro<br />

Bin washer at this year’s event.<br />

The T200 washer benefits<br />

from powerful enhanced<br />

pumps that produce highpressure<br />

water jets as well as<br />

additional heating capacity.<br />

Ideal for removing tough, sticky<br />

residues, the machine can<br />

accommodate 50 to 200 trays,<br />

crates or boxes an hour with a<br />

maximum size of 600 x 400mm.<br />

The OEE Express software allows more detailed information to be extracted<br />

a decision support tool to<br />

focus on production losses<br />

(time, speed, quality)<br />

and improve overall<br />

manufacturing operations.<br />

OEE Express offers a variety<br />

of benefits including the<br />

rapid deployment without<br />

programming or disruption<br />

of production, deployment for<br />

multiple (discrete) production<br />

areas (eg lines or cells) and it<br />

comes with many out-of-the<br />

box KPI reports. It can easily<br />

extend deployment to<br />

other lines and be readily<br />

upgraded to the professional<br />

package for a full-scale<br />

manufacturing operations<br />

management system to achieve<br />

manufacturing and business<br />

improvement objectives.<br />

Sleeve coder<br />

brings retail<br />

alternatives<br />

Rotech unveiled its new RF-Lite<br />

sleeve coding system which has<br />

been designed to address key<br />

technical challenges presented<br />

by the drive to minimise the<br />

environmental impact of food<br />

packaging while maintaining its<br />

on-shelf impact.<br />

It is described as an ideal entry<br />

level solution for artisan food<br />

producers and other small food<br />

companies looking to automate<br />

their offline date marking process<br />

for the first time. It also suits<br />

larger operators, especially in<br />

the chilled food sector, who are<br />

looking to install multiple date<br />

marking systems to cater for<br />

multiple products and short<br />

production runs.<br />

The RF-Lite takes flat<br />

cardboard sleeves from a hopper,<br />

feeds them through an inkjet<br />

printer so they can be date-coded<br />

and stacks them again ready for<br />

use. The use of thinner, lighter<br />

sleeve materials is not a problem<br />

for the RF-Lite. The sleeves are<br />

stacked vertically in a hopper,<br />

where friction wheels separate<br />

them and feed them one by<br />

one to the inkjet printer.<br />

This would not be possible using<br />

a conventional ‘push’ or shuttle<br />

feed mechanism, which only<br />

works with thick, stiff materials.<br />

This unit can handle a variety<br />

of sleeve shapes and sizes and<br />

only takes seconds to swap<br />

between them without special<br />

tools or training.<br />

Delivering reductions in<br />

pack/wrap times in food<br />

Antalis Packaging<br />

exhibited its latest<br />

packaging options<br />

that provide food logistics<br />

businesses with bespoke<br />

solutions to improve their<br />

automation and efficiency.<br />

The stand included live<br />

demonstrations of the latest<br />

semi-automatic Lantech<br />

stretch wrapping machinery,<br />

and case erector systems;<br />

both of which aim to reduce<br />

pack/wrap times within a<br />

warehouse environment,<br />

especially relevant when<br />

dealing with perishable or<br />

refrigerated food goods.<br />

Also shown with the stretch<br />

wrapper were a weigh scale<br />

and printer as well as other<br />

examples of materials and<br />

machinery for primary,<br />

secondary and tertiary<br />

packaging applications.<br />

Key to Antalis’ service<br />

offering is the ability to provide<br />

bespoke, tailored product lines<br />

to fit the individual needs of<br />

a business, providing end-toend<br />

solutions from void fill and<br />

case erectors/closers, through<br />

to pallet wrappers/weighing<br />

machines and stretch films.<br />

“Within the food logistics<br />

industry, it is vital that both<br />

packaging consumables and<br />

machinery provide effective<br />

solutions matched to suit<br />

Antalis Packaging showed a range of kit designed to reduce pack/wrap times<br />

specific requirements, as<br />

well as meeting all relevant<br />

food legislation,” says Martin<br />

Bulk handling and<br />

conveying systems<br />

were demonstrated<br />

Spiroflow showcased its latest<br />

bulk handling and conveying<br />

solutions for shifting food<br />

ingredients at the show.<br />

Transferring food powders,<br />

flakes and granules from one<br />

area of a factory to another<br />

for processing, packaging and<br />

distribution requires a system<br />

that is fast, easy to route, has few<br />

moving parts, empties the system<br />

of product with minimum residue<br />

and provides dust-tight operation,<br />

says the company. Visitors saw for<br />

themselves how equipment was<br />

meeting these needs via the bulk<br />

bag discharger and flexible screw<br />

conveyor on the stand.<br />

Both are designed for the<br />

hygienic discharging and<br />

distribution of food ingredients<br />

including sugar, flour and spices,<br />

within a factory environment.<br />

Options available with the<br />

T2 bulk bag discharger include<br />

loss-in-weight product feed,<br />

patented massage systems to<br />

promote flow from bags, hygienic<br />

bag spout sealing device and<br />

integral hoist , all of which are<br />

designed to empty 1-2 tonne bags.<br />

Meanwhile, the main advantage<br />

of the flexible screw conveyor<br />

is its simplicity which results in<br />

short installation times and low<br />

maintenance. The whole system<br />

can be stripped down for cleaning<br />

in minutes, says the company.<br />

Bespoke horizontal flow wrap<br />

unit offers food sector benefits<br />

Paramount Packaging –<br />

exclusive distributor<br />

of Fuji Machinery<br />

Company’s horizontal and<br />

vertical form, fill and seal<br />

equipment in the UK and<br />

Ireland – demonstrated<br />

bespoke versions of its<br />

Alpha VII horizontal flow<br />

wrapping system.<br />

The stand featured a special<br />

box motion model that has<br />

been adapted to produce the<br />

on trend, stand up ‘block<br />

bottom gable top packs’ which<br />

are becoming increasingly<br />

popular for packaging of<br />

gourmet sandwiches as well<br />

as confectionery and snack<br />

multipacks.<br />

A back seal flow wrapper<br />

that has been customised for<br />

the fresh produce market was<br />

also on display.<br />

Ideal for overwrapping<br />

irregular shaped, fragile or<br />

sticky products such as fish,<br />

sausages or even IV bags,<br />

Fuji’s Alpha VII back seal flow<br />

wrapper features bottom film<br />

feeds for easy, positive transfer<br />

of product from the infeed<br />

conveyor to the film tube.<br />

This eliminates the need to use<br />

Optional extras such as film pre-creasing devices, labellers and hole cutters can be added<br />

trays for loose products.<br />

The FW3710BS/B model<br />

on show at Foodex has been<br />

adapted for use on mobile<br />

field harvesting rigs making it<br />

suitable for the fresh produce<br />

market. Mounted on a stainless<br />

steel support frame, it is ideal<br />

for very wet environments and<br />

has a flexible two-part infeed<br />

which allows it to be used with<br />

different types of rig. It also<br />

boasts an integrated ink jet<br />

coder with label applicator.<br />

With advanced heat pipe<br />

end seal technology, faster<br />

temperature control and high<br />

pressure sealers, Fuji’s Alpha<br />

VII box motion horizontal<br />

flow wrapper offers reduced<br />

energy usage and hermetic<br />

sealing making it ideal for<br />

high speed gas<br />

flushing or MAP<br />

applications<br />

where extended<br />

shelf life is a<br />

key requirement.<br />

Due to the<br />

additional dwell<br />

time, it can seal<br />

thicker wrapping<br />

materials so is<br />

better suited to<br />

handling<br />

taller and heavier<br />

products. The<br />

FW3710B model<br />

exhibited was<br />

also capable of<br />

producing on<br />

This bespoke line for a German manufacturer of IQF ready meals has delivered a 40% greater yield than the older line – more details on page 56<br />

Innovating with safety<br />

Trying to create the impression of a home-cooked meal in a safe, hygienic,<br />

fast and cost effective way is the challenge faced by ready meals producers<br />

Private label continues to<br />

dominate sales of ready meals,<br />

accounting for 69% of retail<br />

value sales in the category in<br />

2015, and it is a key category for<br />

retailers to differentiate their private label<br />

ranges and encourage consumer loyalty<br />

to their retail stores.<br />

Convenience and recipe sophistication<br />

properties are likely to remain essential<br />

elements of attempts to drive sales in<br />

ready meals in the coming years and as a<br />

result, growth is expected to be strongest<br />

in categories in which the potential for<br />

recipe innovations are the greatest. And<br />

machinery has to cope with this demand<br />

for new pack formats.<br />

According to PFM, the stand-up pouch,<br />

in a variety of formats, is set to increase<br />

its share of the ready meals market as<br />

demographic and current lifestyles set the<br />

trend for more consumers eating alone.<br />

Meanwhile, Tony Burgess of Proseal says<br />

tray sealer suppliers have to take account of<br />

the changing needs in this fast-developing<br />

sector, especially for the dishes that<br />

require an element of preparation.<br />

“Inevitably this combination of<br />

new product development and market<br />

competition puts pressure on machinery<br />

suppliers to provide solutions that<br />

maximise speed and efficiencies while<br />

maintaining product quality,” he tells<br />

Machinery Update. “Equally important,<br />

the introduction of so many different<br />

dishes is leading to shorter production<br />

runs which can also involve many<br />

different pack formats,” he says.<br />

And, he thinks, future-proofing is vital<br />

in the development of new tray sealers.<br />

FAST CLEANING IS DEMANDED<br />

According to Ian Wells, product manager<br />

for tray sealing at Multivac UK, trays per<br />

minute and quick die changes have long<br />

been the buzz words for ready meals<br />

producers. “But now, there is a new<br />

concern; how quickly and how effectively<br />

can the machinery be cleaned?<br />

“This has become more critical in<br />

today’s world as we look to control<br />

allergens within the manufacturing<br />

process,” he says, “which is why we offer<br />

a range of tray seal machinery that can<br />

be completely washed down with a low<br />

pressure hose.”<br />

It should also be remembered that<br />

this is a market where the small to<br />

medium-sized food producer often<br />

operates which is why Packaging<br />

Automation has launched a hire<br />

scheme that helps customers automate<br />

packing processes from day one with<br />

minimal investment. The scheme offers<br />

entry level machines with a sealing tool<br />

for one pack format on hire for a fixed<br />

weekly rate.<br />

At the end of an initial six month hire<br />

period, users have the option to return<br />

the machine and stop making payments,<br />

keep the machine at a reduced weekly<br />

rate, or upgrade for a small uplift in cost<br />

to a quicker machine with a sealing tool<br />

to suit the same pack if demand for<br />

products is increasing.<br />

This flexible low cost sealing package<br />

has already helped Whitby Seafoods<br />

launch a breaded scampi product.<br />

Post horsemeat, the requirement for<br />

traceability and safety remains high,<br />

especially when product recalls, such as<br />

the chicken meals recalled by Sainsbury’s<br />

at the beginning of this year, are a costly<br />

business for retailers and brand owners.<br />

Feature: Ready meals<br />

Failure to take least<br />

cost formulation<br />

(LCF) seriously is<br />

likely to lead to<br />

commercial<br />

problems for ready meals<br />

manufacturers as without<br />

it, their ability to achieve<br />

the highest yield from their<br />

activities is compromised,”<br />

argues Richard Hebel, product<br />

manager for fat analysis at<br />

Eagle Product Inspection.<br />

Inline fat analysis systems<br />

– through accurate fat<br />

measurement – enables every<br />

ounce of process yield to be<br />

realised with regard to the<br />

meat element of the product.<br />

“This puts those that<br />

employ inline fat analysis at<br />

a competitive advantage over<br />

those that choose not to, as<br />

the latter’s LCF will not be as<br />

efficient as it could be,” he says.<br />

ACCURATE RECIPES<br />

For ready meals manufacturers,<br />

the ability to create recipes<br />

with a high degree of accuracy<br />

is critical, and where products<br />

contain meat as a major<br />

component it is important to<br />

drill down into exactly how<br />

this is comprised in terms<br />

of ingredients to achieve<br />

maximum yield. Historically,<br />

processing that meat has<br />

carried serious limitations when<br />

it comes to obtaining accurate<br />

fat or lean measurements in<br />

order to meet recipe targets,<br />

but with the introduction of fat<br />

analysis (FA) systems this has<br />

ceased to be an issue.<br />

One of the methods<br />

commonly employed by<br />

modern processors when<br />

creating recipes is that of LCF,<br />

a mathematical optimisation<br />

technique that enables them to<br />

put together a formula or recipe<br />

at the least cost or expense –<br />

specifically where that formula<br />

or recipe needs to meet certain<br />

technical parameters and<br />

constraints and where there is<br />

flexibility in ingredient use in<br />

meeting those parameters.<br />

Let’s take a meatball as an<br />

example, a common meat<br />

element in ready meals. If you<br />

are making meatballs and<br />

Measuring the fat content in the meat used in ready meals allows for recipe targets to be met using cheaper options<br />

Separate the<br />

fat from lean<br />

Eagle Product Inspection talks about the role of fat<br />

analysis in achieving least cost formulation for meals<br />

the specifications state that<br />

product must consist of 40%<br />

protein, but must also contain<br />

a minimum of 70% beef, there<br />

are a number of ingredients<br />

you could combine in order to<br />

achieve this goal.<br />

Besides the necessary<br />

beef, which may be batches<br />

of high-fat beef, one or more<br />

other vegetable proteins or<br />

ingredients may be selected<br />

to achieve recipe targets.<br />

This combination of recipe<br />

components and amounts<br />

provides flexibility in meeting<br />

recipe targets, where that<br />

flexibility can be exploited<br />

to enable use of inherently<br />

lower cost components.<br />

Past sampling methods were<br />

simply too crude to allow least<br />

cost formulation to be achieved<br />

And with agile purchasing, this<br />

flexibility allows additional<br />

cost reduction via low cost spot<br />

buys of commodity products<br />

whose prices vary daily.<br />

LCF enables companies<br />

to calculate the most cost<br />

effective way of purchasing,<br />

selecting and combining these<br />

ingredients in order to achieve<br />

the recipe goal.<br />

BEST INVENTORY USE<br />

LCF, in a complementary role,<br />

also allows processors to make<br />

best use of existing inventory.<br />

Using LCF calculations,<br />

processors can manufacture

meatballs, for example, that<br />

best optimise yield value from<br />

existing stock.<br />

Fat is a primary determiner<br />

of the cost of meat and the<br />

ability to measure fat content<br />

accurately is crucial to effective<br />

LCF. As the saying goes<br />

“you can’t manage what you<br />

can’t measure.” Accurate fat<br />

measurement enables LCF, and<br />

this is where advanced x-ray<br />

technology comes into play.<br />

Modern in-line FA systems<br />

using dual x-ray absorptiometry<br />

or ‘DEXA’ technology enables<br />

fat measurement of 100% of the<br />

meat based on the differential<br />

absorbance of fat and lean meat<br />

content using two x-ray energy<br />

spectra. The combination of<br />

measuring all of the meat, and<br />

at accuracies better than ±1CL<br />

(chemical lean), enables LCF<br />

control schemes to precisely<br />

meet blending targets at<br />

maximum yield.<br />

FA systems are also capable<br />

of simultaneously detecting<br />

physical contaminants<br />

such as glass shards, metal<br />

fragments and calcified bone,<br />

and also measuring weight.<br />

The FA system’s ability to<br />

perform a wide range of tasks<br />

simultaneously, coupled with<br />

low ongoing costs to extend<br />

the lifetime value of the<br />

equipment, are key drivers to<br />

achieving a fast return.<br />

HYGIENE PRIORITY<br />

In order to comply with<br />

stringent regulatory<br />

requirements, hygiene must<br />

be made a priority. Food<br />

borne pathogens have been<br />

responsible for countless<br />

hospitalisations.<br />

FA systems available today<br />

are engineered to NAMI/<br />

EHEDG sanitary design<br />

guidelines. This makes them<br />

ideal to withstand harsh<br />

washdown protocols typically<br />

required within processing<br />

facilities to ensure sanitisation<br />

to a microbiological level. With<br />

Eagle FA systems, breakdown<br />

for sanitation is quick: just<br />

five minutes to prepare<br />

for cleaning. This allows<br />

processors to spend less time<br />

cleaning the machine, and<br />

more time processing meat,<br />

without compromising on<br />

hygiene standards.<br />

Feature: Ready meals<br />

Riggs Autopack<br />

meets changing<br />

filling demands<br />

made by sector<br />

Riggs Autopack says<br />

that ready meals<br />

producers are placing<br />

more emphasis on new<br />

product development,<br />

focusing on the quality of produce<br />

and increased sophistication of the<br />

meal itself, all of which is impacting<br />

machinery suppliers.<br />

Currently, the pressure on<br />

machinery manufacturers such<br />

as depositor and filling machine<br />

manufacturer Riggs Autopack is to<br />

be able to supply equipment that<br />

is reliable, versatile and capable of<br />

damage free product handling as<br />

well as providing quick changeover<br />

times to handle the increase in<br />

ready meals variants.<br />

Today’s ready meals contain<br />

fresher, often only part cooked<br />

ingredients, which enhance<br />

both the quality and appearance<br />

of ready meals. Riggs has<br />

acknowledged that as the product<br />

is more solid, it therefore does not<br />

flow as easily and the particulates<br />

become more likely to lock<br />

together in operation.<br />

Machinery from Riggs, however<br />

can overcome the risk of jamming<br />

and has the ability to handle large<br />

delicate particulates through<br />

careful design of the product<br />

porting within the rotary valve<br />

assembly of the depositing unit.<br />

An area of great significance<br />

to the ready meals producer is<br />

achieving homogenous proportions<br />

with equal mixes of products per<br />

meal, says the company. This can<br />

be difficult to achieve as depositors<br />

have a tendency to draw in the<br />

most fluid product, such as sauces<br />

or soft particulates first.<br />

Alongside this, it is also<br />

important to attain an even<br />

distribution of the product within<br />

the container. To meet these<br />

requirements Riggs has developed<br />

a method of depositing that does<br />

not damage the product while<br />

incorporating a form of agitation<br />

that ensures an even distribution.<br />

Fillers offer<br />

flexibilities<br />

Depositors can<br />

provide damage<br />

free product<br />

handling for a<br />

plethora of<br />

ready meals<br />

By the use of large capacity<br />

hoppers, a correct mix of product<br />

can be presented to the machine in<br />

one batch, either pumped or tipped<br />

directly from tote bins, cooking<br />

kettles or other holding vessels.<br />

The company’s Model 1000 series<br />

of depositors includes a range<br />

of options that are trusted by a<br />

widening group of customers and<br />

large scale food manufacturing<br />

groups such as Kerry Foods,<br />

Bakkavor, Greencore and also<br />

Samworth Brothers, for example.<br />

All are designed to be easy to set up<br />

Special indexing conveyors<br />

offer ready meals producers a<br />

clean and fast changing option<br />

and operate, as well as quick<br />

to clean in place and easy to<br />

maintain going forward.<br />

Another recent trend in the sector<br />

has been for pack style changes<br />

from trays to pouches and bags.<br />

To meet this requirement Riggs<br />

offers machines that incorporate<br />

devices such as bag openers and<br />

bag grippers together with bag<br />

sealing and clipping machines that<br />

can be supplied on one compact<br />

mobile frame with the filling unit<br />

and catchment trays.<br />

“Our equipment is extremely<br />

versatile and can deposit into an<br />

array of containers from ready meals<br />

single or multi-compartment trays,<br />

pots, tubs, bags and pouches,”<br />

Feature: Ready meals<br />

Vision system<br />

steams ahead for<br />

microwave films<br />

Olmec-UK has developed a web-mounted vision system to check<br />

laser micro-perforated holes in microwaveable packaging formats<br />

S<br />

teaming of ready meals and<br />

vegetables in the microwave<br />

is one of the healthiest ways<br />

of cooking because the short<br />

cooking time preserves vitamins<br />

and minerals while maintaining flavour,<br />

colour and texture. Olmec-UK has<br />

developed a web-mounted vision system<br />

for a manufacturer of microwaveable<br />

packaging to check that the laser microperforated<br />

holes that form part of their<br />

self-venting ‘steam valve’ system are<br />

present and that the perforations have<br />

gone through completely.<br />

The packaging, which is used by<br />

a number of leading ready meals<br />

manufacturers, features arrays of laser<br />

micro-perforated holes covered with a<br />

hot-melt patch. As the pack is heated<br />

in the microwave, the steam produced<br />

creates pressure in the packaging, rising<br />

to the optimal level for steam cooking.<br />

At the appropriate time, the hot melt<br />

melts, exposing the holes to allow excess<br />

steam to escape. This prevents bursting<br />

while maintaining the optimal steam<br />

pressure in the container.<br />

This self-venting packaging can<br />

be applied in a multitude of different<br />

packaging solutions, such as pillow bags,<br />

stand-up pouches, lidding films or VFFS<br />

solutions. Clearly it is essential to check<br />

that all the self-venting holes are present<br />

and fully perforated to both guarantee the<br />

correct cooking conditions and for safety.<br />

The laser micro-perforation pattern<br />

and the size of the holes can be chosen<br />

according to the required pressure inside<br />

the pack for the product being cooked.<br />

REAL-TIME MONITORING<br />

Olmec was chosen for this project<br />

as it has experience in real-time<br />

monitoring of perforation quality in laser<br />

perforated flexible packaging through<br />

its work with Rofin-Baasel UK and<br />

Universal Converting Equipment in the<br />

development of the ‘VisionPerfoControl’<br />

system.<br />

The new vision system consists of a<br />

line scan camera mounted in the correct<br />

position to inspect a ‘lane of perforation<br />

patterns’ as they pass under the camera<br />

to provide guaranteed 100% web<br />

Key to the efficacy of the vision system<br />

is making the triggering of inspection<br />

independent of the laser perforation process<br />

The packaging material is illuminated from<br />

the back so the camera sees the transition in<br />

light intensity coming through the holes<br />

coverage in the machine direction. For<br />

this particular application, the packaging<br />

features six lanes of patterns across the<br />

web, so six cameras have been installed.<br />

The system looks for hole patterns with<br />

hole diameters of 350 – 1000µm at web<br />

speeds up to 200 metres a minute.<br />

It checks that they are at the size,<br />

pitch and repeat that was entered into<br />

the user interface as well as being fully<br />

perforated. In order to accommodate the<br />

350µm minimum hole size, cameras with<br />

2048 pixel line resolution were used.<br />

C<br />

transition in light intensity when it comes<br />

through the holes. This means it can<br />

be used for both clear and overprinted<br />

packaging film. The system is fully<br />

integrated into the web, so if the holes are<br />

not detected or they are incomplete, the<br />

web is automatically stopped.<br />

One of the major challenges for the<br />

system is handling the volume of data<br />

being generated during the inspections,<br />

says Olmec. With six cameras having a<br />

resolution of 2048 pixels and operating at<br />

a line frequency of 120 KHz, there is a lot<br />

of data to handle.<br />

APPROPRIATE HARDWARE<br />

Choosing the appropriate hardware<br />

was critical to ensure that the multiinstance<br />

processing required for the<br />

inspection could be carried out on<br />

the high data volumes on a single PC.<br />

Data was transferred from the camera<br />

using the CameraLink Full interface to<br />

accommodate the data rates needed.<br />

Key to efficacy of the vision system<br />

The self-venting films can be applied to various<br />

different packaging solutions including lidding<br />

is making the triggering of inspection<br />

independent of the laser perforation<br />

process. For overprinted packaging film<br />

with registered print, the web will have<br />

a sensor which looks for the registration<br />

mark and then fire the perforating laser so<br />

the holes are always present in a specific<br />

location on the artwork. However, if the<br />

print registration sensor fails, no holes<br />

are printed and if the vision system was<br />

also triggered by this sensor, the web<br />

would just continue past the cameras<br />

without inspection.<br />

The vision system is therefore<br />

designed to be independent of any print<br />

registration trigger source so if the web<br />

moves, the system will inspect it to see if<br />

holes are present and correct and stop the<br />

line if they are not.<br />

PRODUCTION CONDITION TESTS<br />

Olmec was able to offer much more than<br />

just a bench-developed solution.<br />

The company possesses its own reelto-reel<br />

winder on which they can put<br />

customer’s reels for evaluation before<br />

they commit to a project. This also allows<br />

development and testing of the system<br />

to be carried out in conditions that are<br />

close to the final factory environment.<br />

Thus prior to the completed system being<br />

installed, it was fully demonstrated at<br />

customer line speeds at Olmec’s premises<br />

to mitigate the customer’s risk and ensure<br />

that the installation and commissioning<br />

phase could be completed with a high<br />

degree of knowledge and understanding<br />

already in place.<br />

Feature: Ready meals<br />

Stand-up is set<br />

for sector rises<br />

PFM Packaging Machinery says its servo drive<br />

equipment helps cater for single serve pouches<br />

The stand-up pouch, in a variety<br />

of formats, looks set to increase<br />

its share of the ready meals<br />

market as demographics and<br />

current lifestyles set the trend to<br />

more and more consumers eating alone.<br />

As a result, according to Italian<br />

machinery manufacturer PFM, quick line<br />

changeover and in particular re-setting<br />

weighing and dosing equipment for a<br />

variety of ingredients, will assume greater<br />

and greater importance.<br />

“Demand for stand-up pouches in<br />

Europe is already growing at around twice<br />

the pace of the flexible packaging market<br />

generally and, according to recent market<br />

research, the use of pouches for ready<br />

meals is following that trend – about 5%<br />

a year,” says PFM sales and operations<br />

director Chris Bolton.<br />

“We see a situation developing where<br />

there will be a variety of pouch sizes<br />

lends itself particularly well to multicomponent<br />

snacks based on a sauce<br />

or rice; changeover between products<br />

on conventional, mechanically driven<br />

out Chris Bolton.<br />

This, Bolton explains, was one of the<br />

principal reasons for PFM to develop its<br />

It means that size changeover can be<br />

made rapidly and, with full computer<br />

liquid fillers, weighers and dispensers<br />

can be adjusted automatically as part<br />

of a product programme.<br />

Ishida has installed<br />

a custom designed<br />

line for IQF meals<br />

In conjunction with its<br />

customer German frozen<br />

food manufacturer Jütro<br />

Tiefkühlkost Ishida Europe<br />

has designed and installed<br />

a bespoke packing line to handle<br />

the weighing, sealing and<br />

checkweighing of a range of IQF<br />

(individually quick frozen)<br />

ready meals.<br />

The line comprises a 20 head<br />

Ishida CCW-RV multihead weigher,<br />

a QX-1100 Flex tray sealer and a<br />

DACS-G checkweigher, filling a<br />

variety of different tray sizes at<br />

speeds of up to 70 packs a minute.<br />

This has delivered a 40%<br />

greater yield in comparison with<br />

the company’s older tray sealing<br />

line, resulting in a fast payback on<br />

capital investment.<br />

The multihead weigher is able<br />

to weigh three different products –<br />

meat, vegetables and rice or pasta<br />

– simultaneously for discharge into<br />

the trays. The RV model combines<br />

speed and accuracy with a highly<br />

robust design, which is ideal for<br />

the demands of IQF foods, says<br />

Ishida. Its heavy duty contact<br />

surfaces ensure minimal product<br />

adherence, while the weigher is<br />

certified to the highest level of<br />

waterproof protection, IP69K.<br />

Speed and weighing accuracy are<br />

maximised by the use of booster<br />

hoppers, which provide temporary<br />

storage of already-weighed<br />

product. This increases the number<br />

of possible weight combinations for<br />

each weigh cycle.<br />

can handle seven trays at a time<br />

and creates an airtight seal using<br />

Ishida’s inside cut technology. The<br />

basic shape of the trays is the same<br />

with only their heights varying<br />

between 50 mm and 70 mm.<br />

Modern servo technology<br />

ensures controlled, high speed<br />

tray delivery and film supply while<br />

the stainless steel construction<br />

with quick-release belts is<br />

easily accessible for operation,<br />

maintenance and cleaning.<br />

“In comparison with other<br />

tray sealers, the QX-1100 Flex is<br />

extremely straightforward,” says<br />

Jütro Tiefkühlkost’s ceo Michael<br />

Meyer. “In particular, the easy<br />

handling of the film minimises<br />

downtime.” He is also impressed<br />

by Ishida’s unique sealing head<br />

redundancy feature. “In the event<br />

of faults, the affected sealing<br />

heads can be individually disabled<br />

and the tray sealer continues to<br />

operate, diverting the supply of<br />

trays automatically to the still<br />

operational sealing heads,” he<br />

explains. “After shift end, the<br />

faulty sealing head can be checked<br />

over, without wasting precious<br />

production time.”<br />

The DACS-G checkweigher<br />

with integrated metal detector<br />

rejects out-of-spec packs and is<br />

able to operate reliably in the low<br />

temperatures and high humidity<br />

of the production hall. A newly<br />

developed loadcell enables very<br />

high speeds during product<br />

inspection, while the weigher’s<br />

protection function automatically<br />

disconnects the weigh sensor from<br />

the belt in the event of external<br />

disturbances.<br />

End-effectors<br />

bring benefits<br />

Pacepacker says the choice of any end-effectors<br />

is key to robotics adapting to changing formats<br />

Pick and place robots are<br />

becoming increasingly<br />

commonplace in the<br />

convenience food arena and,<br />

while the arm of the robot<br />

tends to attract the greatest attention,<br />

it’s actually the end-effector – the hand<br />

– that determines the precise operation<br />

that the unit performs according to<br />

Paul Wilkinson, business development<br />

manager at Pacepacker Services.<br />

“For any convenience food packer,<br />

ensuring you have the right end tool for<br />

the product is a key consideration,” he<br />

says. “While speed is naturally important,<br />

the end-effectors must be able to adapt to<br />

a variety of shapes and pack sizes.<br />

“This is especially true for convenience<br />

foods, where manufacturers and contract<br />

packers are handling everything from<br />

single serve portions to family-sized<br />

meals, and all of the formats in between.”<br />

End tooling for pick and place tends<br />

to fall into one of four categories:<br />

vacuum systems, magnets, clamps and<br />

clamshell style. Most refrigerated, frozen<br />

and ambient ready meals have rigid<br />

packaging, making the vacuum gripper<br />

(also known as suction cups) the most<br />

suitable option. Compressed air typically<br />

generates a vacuum, and the suction and<br />

configuration of valves can be tailored to<br />

foil topped, cellophane packaging and the<br />

exact product being picked.<br />

When more vacuum is required, for<br />

example handling pots of fresh pasta sauce,<br />

a pump or even a high air-flow pump can be<br />

specified. The latter is likely to be required<br />

where, for instance, a good seal between<br />

valve and product cannot be guaranteed.<br />

Another benefit of vacuum grippers is<br />

they can be multi-functional. One large<br />

gripper can pick up the different size<br />

variants on the same line, for example<br />

a family-sized portion of lasagne or<br />

several individual servings. Where<br />

interchangeability is required, compressed<br />

air vacuum electronics can be quickly<br />

disconnected and re-attached using quick<br />

release couplings.<br />

To meet machine builders<br />

demands for smaller, lighter<br />

Dunkermotoren has developed<br />

a brushless DC motor that<br />

incorporates not only the power<br />

supply, but also the control and<br />

positioning electronics, PLC<br />

functions, BUS links along with<br />

various encoder and brake options.<br />

The 550watt BG 75 DMC<br />

brushless motor (Direct<br />

Mains Connection) succeeds<br />

in eliminating the need for an<br />

external power supply while<br />

also accommodating all the<br />

functionality into the motor<br />

housing. About 20 years ago,<br />

the control components would<br />

have filled a small cabinet, now<br />

they are completely integrated<br />

in the motor housing and<br />

depending on the application,<br />

a control cabinet is completely<br />

unnecessary, says the company.<br />

To enable maximum<br />

end-user benefit the reactive<br />

power compensation has been<br />

incorporated and where required,<br />

the motor can be adapted to<br />

feed energy back into the grid,<br />

even during braking. In future,<br />

a complex external power factor<br />

correction method and in some<br />

cases, a braking resistor will be<br />

dispensed with.<br />

Thanks to the integral design<br />

of the motor, installation and<br />

commissioning is easy and<br />

renders the need for wiring in the<br />

control cabinet as unnecessary.<br />

usually refers to the connection<br />

between the motor and the<br />

Components<br />

Considering OEE during the<br />

design phase brings benefits<br />

The ongoing pursuit of<br />

ever better OEE (overall<br />

equipment effectiveness)<br />

scores has become a real focus<br />

for end users in the food and<br />

beverage industry in recent<br />

years, says Robert Brooks,<br />

European industry marketing<br />

manager – food & beverage at<br />

Omron Electronics. OEE itself,<br />

however, is not a conversation<br />

end users routinely have with<br />

their machinery suppliers,<br />

with the focus instead<br />

tending to be on areas such<br />

as baseline speed, cycle times<br />

and overall performance.<br />

DEMONSTRATE GAINS<br />

However, if machine builders<br />

can bear OEE in mind<br />

during machine design, and<br />

subsequently demonstrate<br />

how their machine designs<br />

can contribute to improved<br />

OEE results, then they can<br />

give themselves a significant<br />

competitive advantage.<br />

One area where machine<br />

builders can really impact<br />

on OEE for the end user is<br />

in machine availability. For<br />

example, inbuilt diagnostics<br />

and monitoring algorithms<br />

can highlight developing<br />

problems before they become<br />

critical, enabling users to take<br />

preventative action during<br />

scheduled maintenance<br />

periods. These are systems that<br />

machine builders can easily<br />

build in as part of the machine<br />

design – without incurring<br />

additional costs.<br />

TEACH OPERATION<br />

Consider, for example, the<br />

operation time of an actuator<br />

or cylinder. With a simple<br />

teach operation, the controller<br />

can learn the ideal move<br />

times in both directions, and<br />

limits can be expressed –<br />

creating rules perhaps for an<br />

early warning, and an alarm<br />

if the actuator’s operation<br />

time falls outside of these<br />

The fieldbus modules are installed close to the process so sensors and valves can be connected with shorter cables<br />

rules, predicting a potential<br />

impending problem.<br />

The same thinking could<br />

be applied to sensors on the<br />

production line. The control<br />

system can monitor the sensor’s<br />

performance, with limits set<br />

to trigger alarms as the output<br />

drifts towards tolerance limits.<br />

Then there is the monitoring of<br />

servo torque values – knowing<br />

what the ideal should be,<br />

and setting alarms to spot if<br />

those torque values drift out<br />

of tolerance. A simple teach<br />

routine is all that is required in<br />

the first instance; the controller<br />

takes care of everything else<br />

from that point on.<br />

The machine controller<br />

can then flag up these<br />

warnings and alarms on an<br />

HMI local to the machine or<br />

inform engineers remotely,<br />

giving operators plenty of time<br />

to look at the operation of the<br />

devices in question and taking<br />

quick and appropriate actions<br />

before failures occur.<br />

A further benefit of<br />

automation is being able to<br />

demonstrate to a customer<br />

how, for example, changeover<br />

times from one product size<br />

or packaging style to another<br />

could be significantly reduced.<br />

STANDARD FEATURE<br />

‘One push configuration’ is<br />

now a standard feature in<br />

automation technologies<br />

such as Omron’s Sysmac<br />

platform. Once the operator<br />

can configure the whole<br />

line from a single push<br />

button operation on an HMI,<br />

product changeover times<br />

are dramatically shortened,<br />

getting the line back up<br />

and running much more<br />

quickly each time.<br />

Another area to consider is<br />

unscheduled downtime, and<br />

the cost implications that this<br />

has for the end user. Today’s<br />

automation equipment is<br />

inherently reliable, but even<br />

the most reliable of equipment<br />

can fail unexpectedly. If that<br />

faulty part is a complex piece<br />

of electrical equipment that<br />

may have incurred significant<br />

programming effort, then<br />

the end user could be facing<br />

substantial downtime.<br />

Here machine builders<br />

can offer their end users the<br />

benefits of backup/restore<br />

functionality, perhaps with all<br />

the critical program settings<br />

and parameters stored on an<br />

SD card. All of this could help<br />

an end user to get a machine<br />

back up and running quickly.<br />

For the machine builder,<br />

that means an enhancement<br />

to reputation for machines<br />

that are easy to maintain,<br />

but it also means that there<br />

is less need to take your<br />

own engineers away from<br />

important design projects<br />

and instead onto non-profit<br />

generating maintenance or<br />

support roles.<br />

Importantly, none of the<br />

features which can help to<br />

increase machine availability<br />

have to be a challenge for<br />

the machine builder to<br />

implement.<br />

RA Rodriguez had its<br />

biggest presence yet and<br />

took the opportunity<br />

to introduce a new company:<br />

RARUK Automation.<br />

Over the last six years, the<br />

company has been steadily<br />

adding automation products<br />

to its portfolio and this success<br />

has prompted the company to<br />

separate this division of the<br />

company. As a result of this<br />

decision, all automation sales<br />

are now the responsibility<br />

of the newly formed RARUK<br />

Automation, a company<br />

dedicated to developing a<br />

group of automation products<br />

with a unique edge.<br />

“The creation of a separate<br />

organisation allows us to tool<br />

up for the growing demands<br />

of automation in the UK,<br />

whilst not losing sight of our<br />

traditional strengths as a<br />

supplier of the highest quality<br />

transmission components,”<br />

explains Peter Williamson,<br />

md of both companies.<br />

“The move allows us to<br />

optimise the growth of both<br />

strands of our business<br />

customers.”<br />

Brands in the RAR UK<br />

automation catalogue include<br />

Universal Robots, Robotiq, IEF<br />

Werner and Mafu Automation.<br />

The latest development<br />

from RA Rodriguez shows the<br />

company’s commitment to<br />

growing its core engineering<br />

component business<br />

in parallel with its new<br />

automation venture. It has<br />

become the sole UK distributor<br />

for the Cone Drive range of<br />

slewing drives and harmonic<br />

solutions and, in so doing,<br />

has significantly extended<br />

its ability to provide products<br />

for performance critical<br />

applications.<br />

Cone Drive’s slewing drives<br />

are designed to accommodate<br />

combined tilting, radial and<br />

axial loads and employ worm<br />

gear geometry that provides<br />

high ratio single stage gearing.<br />

The bearing and gears are<br />

assembled into a low profile<br />

Raft of new<br />

products<br />

bring gains<br />

B&R Automation introduced a<br />

range of new products which are<br />

all designed to bring benefits to<br />

automation engineers.<br />

Its new HMI solution, mapp<br />

View, for instance, showcased the<br />

full potential of web technology in<br />

the Automation Studio software<br />

engineering environment. The<br />

company says it gives automation<br />

engineers all the tools they need<br />

to create powerful and intuitive<br />

web-based HMI.<br />

Also on show was the<br />

ACOPOS P3, 3-axis servo drive<br />

which offers a power density of<br />

4A per litre, making it one of the<br />

most efficient servo drives with<br />

integrated safety functions on<br />

the market, and also providing<br />

previously unmatched dynamics<br />

and precision, with a minimum<br />

sampling time of 50 µs for the<br />

entire controller cascade.<br />

mapp technology is B&R’s<br />

new approach to developing<br />

software. Ready-made modular<br />

components simplify and<br />

accelerate the development of new<br />

programs – on average by 67%.<br />

The Automation Panel<br />

5000 of swing arm operator<br />

panels are said to raise the bar<br />

when it comes to flexibility and<br />

modularity. These fully enclosed<br />

systems feature IP65 protection<br />

and are available in many<br />

different variants.<br />

Ultra-compact X20<br />

controllers, secure remote<br />

maintenance technology and new<br />

speed of up to 200 bottles a<br />

minute while the previous<br />

machine could only manage<br />

90 a minute. “The machine<br />

design allows for quick<br />

changeover by exchange of<br />

labelling stations which has<br />

significantly reduced our<br />

downtime, furthermore it is<br />

self-controlled by an encoder<br />

which means the labeller<br />

Multivac’s SpeedUp module<br />

Faster running time<br />

for thermal transfer<br />

printers is available<br />

Multivac has developed a<br />

SpeedUp module for its cross<br />

web labellers to increase<br />

speeds when thermal transfer<br />

printers are used at low ambient<br />

temperatures. Other benefits<br />

outlined for the equipment<br />

include excellent print quality,<br />

savings in thermal transfer ribbon<br />

usage and shorter downtime.<br />

The SpeedUp module consists<br />

of a servo driven label advance<br />

and a label buffer in which the<br />

preprinted labels are temporarily<br />

buffered. It effectively decouples<br />

the labelling process from the<br />

printing process so the printer<br />

can continue to print while the<br />

labeller is at a standstill. This<br />

means overall line output is no<br />

longer adversely affected by the<br />

thermal transfer process.<br />

Regulations<br />

Talking about the<br />

wireless evolution<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 />

Here, we look at how machinery manufacturers can ensure the reliability of their wireless safety<br />

controls so that machinery users can be assured of their own personal safety while operating<br />

any packaging and processing equipment<br />

The growing trend for<br />

wireless modules to be<br />

added into everyday<br />

products, beyond the more<br />

traditional market of laptops<br />

and mobile phones, is moving<br />

into the machinery business<br />

as wireless connectivity<br />

becomes the expected norm.<br />

One such area is wireless<br />

safety related control systems.<br />

Machine builders and endusers<br />

should ensure that<br />

wireless systems are installed<br />

as per the manufacturer’s<br />

specific mounting and wiring<br />

instructions. For example,<br />

to install equipment the<br />

wireless switch should be<br />

mounted on an even surface,<br />

and the radio switch must be<br />

installed by strictly following<br />

the mounting and wiring<br />

instructions for the receiver.<br />

FLEXIBILITY<br />

While wireless technology<br />

affords a great deal of<br />

flexibility in terms of how<br />

equipment can be deployed<br />

across a site, it does have<br />

limitations, which is a concern<br />

for safety systems where<br />

100% reliability is required.<br />

One such limitation is<br />

the sensing range between<br />

receiver and transmitter, the<br />

strength of which will depend<br />

on the local conditions. The<br />

radio signal can be strongly<br />

affected by conductive<br />

materials, as well as other<br />

sources of radio interference,<br />

and can sometimes lead<br />

to a dead spot for wireless<br />

connectivity. This can be<br />

caused by metal parts, such as<br />

wall armour, insulation and<br />

metal foils, which are known<br />

to reduce the penetration of<br />

radio waves to 0-10%.<br />

So how can machinery<br />

manufacturers ensure the<br />

reliability of their wireless<br />

safety controls and machinery<br />

end-users assure their<br />

own personal safety while<br />

operating equipment?<br />

EU REGULATIONS<br />

In the European Union<br />

(EU) it is mandatory that<br />

radio equipment meets the<br />

‘essential requirements’ of<br />

the new European Union<br />

Radio Equipment Directive<br />

(RED) 2014/53/EU, which<br />

replaces the Radio and<br />

Telecommunications Terminal<br />

Equipment Directive (R&TTE)<br />

on 13th <strong>June</strong> <strong>2016</strong>.<br />

While the RED will become<br />

the required method to show<br />

compliance of radio and<br />

telecoms equipment sold<br />

across the EU, equipment<br />

compliant with the current<br />

R&TTE Directive may continue<br />

to be placed on the market<br />

until 13 <strong>June</strong> 2017.<br />

DIRECTIVE FIT<br />

Products which fit within<br />

the following definition are<br />

subject to the RED:<br />

“Radio equipment – an<br />

electrical or electronic<br />

product which intentionally<br />

emits and/or receives radio<br />

waves for the purpose of<br />

radio communication and/<br />

or radiodetermination, or an<br />

electrical or electronic product<br />

which must be completed<br />

with an accessory (such as an<br />

antenna) so as to intentionally<br />

emit and/or receive radio<br />

waves for the purpose of<br />

radio communication and/or<br />

radiodetermination.”<br />

In order to reduce both<br />

Wireless connectivity is<br />

demanded more and more by<br />

equipment makers and users<br />

costs and time to market<br />

for new equipment, we<br />

expect that many machinery<br />

manufacturers will rely on<br />

the use of wireless modules<br />

that already meet some or<br />

all of the RED’s essential<br />

requirements. However, once<br />

these modules are integrated<br />

into another product, the<br />

regulatory requirements will<br />

change as the host machine<br />

falls within the scope of the<br />

RED. Under the RED, the<br />

manufacturer must also<br />

take account of reasonably<br />

foreseeable conditions,<br />

ie use of the product outside<br />

of its intended use.<br />

The most common<br />

method of demonstrating<br />

compliance with the RED<br />

essential requirements would<br />

be by using ‘Harmonised<br />

Standards’. These are written<br />

and published under an<br />

EU mandate, and provide a<br />

‘presumption of conformity’<br />

(or compliance), provided they<br />

are applied in full.<br />

ADDITIONAL STANDARDS<br />

As the scope (and the<br />

safety and radio essential<br />

requirements) of the RED differ<br />

from the R&TTE, additional<br />

standards are required<br />

and existing standards<br />

must be amended. While<br />

harmonised standards are<br />

being reviewed for publication<br />

under the RED, the European<br />

Telecommunications<br />

Standards Institute (ETSI) has<br />

stated that it is not possible to<br />

complete all of the required<br />

standards by 13th <strong>June</strong> <strong>2016</strong>.<br />

Likewise, some standards<br />

produced by CEN/CENELEC<br />

still require amendment.<br />

HARMONISATION<br />

The European Commission<br />

will publish a Harmonised<br />

Standards list for the RED in<br />

the Official Journal (OJ) prior<br />

to 13th <strong>June</strong> <strong>2016</strong> and update it<br />

as necessary. In the absence of<br />

ETSI RED standards published<br />

in the OJ, it shall be mandatory<br />

for any manufacturers wishing<br />

for an early implementation of<br />

the RED to apply to a Notified<br />

Body for a Type Examination<br />

Certificate or a Full Quality<br />

Assurance Approval.<br />
