PPMA matters<br />

Show delivers<br />

as part of the<br />

supply chain<br />

Grant Jamieson<br />

chairman PPMA Group of Associations<br />

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

ATotal success. That’s the view I’ve picked up from this<br />

year’s PPPMA Total Show that took place at the NEC,<br />

Birmingham in September. The PPMA team did a<br />

great job and I’m told by other show organisers that our trade<br />

association is a standout organisation in the way it delivers its<br />

trade show. So well done to them – good job one and all.<br />

The calibre of visitor was high at the show which was enjoyed<br />

by all exhibitors and many leads and opportunities were realised.<br />

As a follow up to the preview in the last issue, you’ll find 16 more<br />

pages of news from the show which starts on page 30.<br />

The competence and the<br />

integrity of PPMA members makes us<br />

a trusted partner in the supply chain<br />

The awards dinner, which again was a very well executed<br />

event, was over-subscribed and appreciated by all who attended.<br />

And this event presents yet more marketing opportunities for<br />

entrants and a complete cause for celebration (see pages 10-13).<br />

Our show presents a fantastic opportunity for many different<br />

technologies to be presented in one place. As technology-lead<br />

companies, the cross over from one industry to another is<br />

sometimes by chance and, as we are the experts and therefore<br />

the link between these industries, we are key to assisting<br />

potential users of our equipment in that migration process.<br />

Food – which is a dominant industry for many of the PPMA<br />

members faces many challenges with increasing regulation<br />

and red tape, often in the interests of public safety and<br />

maintaining level playing fields, and it can certainly learn from<br />

the pharmaceutical sector, for instance. The pharma industry,<br />

once a dominant source of investment activity has been quieter<br />

in recent years, but it is by no means dormant as our 16 page<br />

pharmaceuticals feature that starts on page 46 bears witness to.<br />

The standards and protocols which constrain behaviour in<br />

this area are often embedded at the outset. The cost of change is<br />

prohibitive. Many of the stories in our feature demonstrate their<br />

pharmaceutical prowess and show how new challenges<br />

are being met and new ways of addressing old problems are<br />

being found in a challenging market place.<br />

I would argue that the competence and integrity of our<br />

members as part of the supply chain is a major factor in<br />

maintaining this. Or to put it another way, that is why visitors<br />

come to our trade show. We are a trusted source of expertise and<br />

long may that continue.<br />

referendum looming large, the<br />

Rt Hon Lord Francis Maude,<br />

former Minister of State for Trade<br />

and Investment opened the<br />

<strong>2016</strong> exhibition by discussing<br />

the potential aftermath of Brexit<br />

negotiations and future plans<br />

for the government’s ‘Exporting<br />

is Great’ campaign.<br />

Presenting an optimistic<br />

outlook on the future,<br />

Lord Maude said: “Britain is<br />

The PPMA Total Show showcased industry success<br />

bigger; its pattern of trade<br />

and investment is much more<br />

closely intermingled with the<br />

EU; and we should aim for<br />

and I hope achieve something<br />

much more bespoke than<br />

Norway, Canada, Switzerland<br />

or even Albania.<br />

“When we leave the EU<br />

Britain will be able to negotiate<br />

its own free trade agreements<br />

and in doing so, we can focus<br />

on what is of interest to us and<br />

us alone,” he said.<br />

Training centre upgrade<br />

reflects changing robots<br />

ABB Robotics says its new<br />

training centre prepares<br />

UK manufacturers for<br />

the factory of the future.<br />

The company has invested<br />

over £250,000 in upgrading its<br />

UK training facility at Auriga<br />

House in Milton Keynes.<br />

Partly motivated by a demand<br />

for training on the latest<br />

advances in robot technology,<br />

the training centre now<br />

features the latest generation<br />

of robots and controllers to<br />

prepare UK manufacturers<br />

for the ‘smart’ factory era.<br />

Upgrades to the ABB Robotics<br />

training centre include a number<br />

of ABB IRB 1200 units which<br />

were selected as being the<br />

optimum payload and range for<br />

use in the new cells. These cells<br />

have also been refurbished with<br />

new ABB guarding to reflect<br />

the typical industrial situations<br />

which exist in factories with<br />

robot technology. At the same<br />

time, this guarding provides<br />

the correct level of interaction<br />

OPEN HOUSE DAY HELPED INSPIRE 8-15 YEAR OLDS<br />

Inspiring young engineers<br />

Bosch Rexroth teamed up with the Institution of Engineering and<br />

Technology to host an Open House Day at the Advanced Manufacturing<br />

Training Centre in Coventry. Children between the ages of 8 and 15, along<br />

with their parents were shown the important roles engineers play creating<br />

products used in everyday life as well as taking part in challenges.<br />

The cells have been refurbished with new ABB guarding for better teaching<br />

needed to teach students<br />

adequately.<br />

A range of other robot models<br />

are available to train with,<br />

enabling students to select a<br />

robot that most closely matches<br />

their own installations.<br />

The new robot controllers<br />

provide more capacity for<br />

students to be trained to use<br />

MultiMove and SoftMove.<br />

These controllers, together<br />

with the MultiMove and<br />

SoftMove programming<br />

software packages, allow UK<br />

manufacturers to improve<br />

safety and robot performance.<br />

In addition, the training<br />

courses that are available<br />

have been expanded with the<br />

Integrator course showing<br />

students how to set up and<br />

install a robot “out of the box”,<br />

while another option added<br />

to the portfolio is the YuMi<br />

course which covers the key<br />

elements of installing this<br />

collaborative robot into a<br />

production cell within the<br />

shortest possible time.<br />

New factory<br />

is celebrated<br />

at open house<br />

The Marchesini Group has<br />

inaugurated its new factory in<br />

Carpi, Italy while at the same time<br />

opening its doors to over 700<br />

customers during its traditional<br />

5-day open house event.<br />

This new plant covers<br />

14,000sq m and, says the<br />

company, is the biggest<br />

production hub of thermoforming<br />

machinery in Italy. The Group<br />

has invested 14 million euros<br />

in the project.<br />

“The factory in Carpi has been<br />

built, and will continue to grow,<br />

as a modern smart factory,”<br />

said ceo Maurizio Marchesini at<br />

the inauguration. “Today, we are<br />

not just inaugurating a factory,<br />

but we are celebrating a way of<br />

doing business and of enhancing<br />

our land.”<br />

National and international<br />

customers visited during the<br />

open house event and, as well<br />

as inspecting the thermoformer<br />

production cells, they also<br />

listened to presentations that<br />

covered current pharmaceutical<br />

industry topics.<br />

PPMA Group Industry Awards <strong>2016</strong><br />

Gala night of the year is<br />

celebrated in style<br />

This year’s PPMA Group Industry Awards were presented on the first night of the PPMA Total<br />

Show in Birmingham and here we highlight the winners of the special awards, while the<br />

following two pages feature eleven further winners in the other categories<br />

Comedian Andy Parsons and Sky Sports’ Hayley McQueen were the hosts<br />

Chairman of the PPMA Group Grant Jamieson welcomed the 400 guests to<br />

the awards taking place at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham<br />

Sponsored by Festo, the Apprentice of the Year was awarded to<br />

Chris Eckert of Packaging Automation. The judges agreed that<br />

this entry is a clear demonstration of how a mutually beneficial<br />

arrangement has resulted in a triple win outcome. Eckert has been<br />

able to develop his skills further, the company has benefited from<br />

his contribution, and he has also exceeded clients’ expectations<br />

by delivering exceptional customer service. Highly commended in<br />

this category were Craig Capel of Multipix Imaging Components<br />

and Kerry Walker of HepcoMotion.<br />

Sponsored by Machinery Update magazine, the Outstanding<br />

Achievement award is given to an individual that has made an<br />

exceptional contribution to the industry over the years.<br />

This year, Richard Bull of Enercon Industries was presented with<br />

the award by the PPMA Group ceo Dr Andrew Mint.<br />

By introducing heat sealing to all of the supermarkets, back in<br />

the day, Richard has literally benefited almost every household<br />

in the United Kingdom in preventing plastic milk bottles from<br />

leaking. As well as helping shoppers, this has also saved about<br />

54 million litres of milk over the years as well as over 3,000 tonnes<br />

of wasted plastic bottles.<br />

Despite being in charge of an international company that has<br />

fifteen offices across the EU, Richard continues to find time to talk<br />

to and encourage young people to have a career in packaging.<br />

He works with industry bodies as well as local schools in Aylesbury<br />

as part of a business mentorship programme. This involves speaking<br />

to students taking their GCSEs about working life in general.

Bread moulder can add value to<br />

loaves by enrobing and swirling<br />

Two additions developed<br />

by Baker Perkins for the<br />

Multitex4 bread moulder<br />

are designed to add value<br />

to standard loaves by fully<br />

enrobing them with seeds<br />

or grains, and by creating<br />

attractive swirled loaves – or<br />

by doing both on the same unit.<br />

These latest developments<br />

are available on new machines<br />

and also as retrofits on any<br />

existing moulders.<br />

Seeding the top, bottom,<br />

sides and ends of the loaf adds<br />

visual appeal to the product<br />

as well as value, and supports<br />

claims to be tastier and<br />

healthier. The Baker Perkins<br />

technique to make a fullyenrobed<br />

loaf involves rolling<br />

the coiled dough piece in<br />

seeds or grains before panning<br />

which achieves good coverage<br />

and simultaneously solves<br />

the problems of pressing the<br />

seeds into the dough piece and<br />

avoids waste.<br />

CAN BE RETROFITTED<br />

The second innovation<br />

incorporates inclusions by<br />

interspersing them with<br />

the coils of dough. This is<br />

the technique used to make<br />

classics such as French painau-raisin<br />

and American<br />

cinnamon swirl, and has<br />

many advantages compared<br />

with simply mixing the<br />

inclusions into the dough.<br />

Damage to delicate<br />

inclusions such as seeds, nuts,<br />

dried fruit and chocolate chips<br />

is avoided and it is possible<br />

to use fillings that would<br />

adversely affect texture if<br />

mixed into the dough.<br />

Swirl breads with cinnamon<br />

or raisins can be readily made<br />

on the Multitex4, but bake<br />

stable powders and inclusions<br />

such as seeds, chopped nuts,<br />

dried fruits and chocolate<br />

chips are all now possible.<br />

16 MACHINERY UPDATE november/december <strong>2016</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

New Machinery<br />

Products can be flow wrapped<br />

on latest unit for the first time<br />

At Germany’s FackPack<br />

exhibition in<br />

September, Schubert<br />

unveiled its new Flowmodul<br />

flow wrap bag unit which can<br />

be integrated seamlessly into<br />

the company’s TLM system.<br />

It is the first time that the<br />

company has offered flow<br />

wrapping as part of its range.<br />

This is the eighth system<br />

component in the packaging<br />

machinery manufacturer’s<br />

portfolio and enables products<br />

such as biscuits, bars, and<br />

others to be packed into<br />

flow packs on its proven toploading<br />

packaging machines.<br />

“The Flowmodul sets all-new<br />

standards in primary packaging<br />

with regards to quality control,<br />

efficiency, space requirements<br />

and flexibility,” explains<br />

Mark Jocelyn, sales director at<br />

Schubert UK.<br />

Like all Schubert system<br />

components, the Flowmodul<br />

has been developed to<br />

perform without an electrical<br />

cabinet. In operation, image<br />

recognition, pick & place<br />

robots and the Flowmodul all<br />

merge into a single system.<br />

A special feature of the new Flowmodul from Schubert is that it enables individual products such as biscuits or cereal<br />

bars as well as products in trays to be placed and then packed into flow wrap bags on its TLM packaging system<br />

The scanner detects position,<br />

rotational position, shape,<br />

colour and even the volume<br />

of each product, and then<br />

transfers the data for products<br />

which have passed the quality<br />

control to the F4 robots.<br />

These in turn carefully pick<br />

the products from the running<br />

product belt and position<br />

them in the Flowmodul’s feed<br />

system. Out of spec products<br />

no longer cause equipment<br />

malfunctions and never end<br />

up in a finished pack.<br />

Protek Packaging <strong>MU</strong> N-D <strong>2016</strong>_<strong>MU</strong> 21/10/<strong>2016</strong> 16:23 Page 1<br />

The speed of the Flowmodul<br />

is determined in response to<br />

the product flow. The product<br />

feed consists of a flexible, fully<br />

automatic adjustable chain,<br />

with which products can also<br />

be carried on toothed belts.<br />

The automatic film roll<br />

changing (splicing) is a<br />

standard feature as well as the<br />

servo driven film rolls which<br />

enable secure handling of even<br />

very thin films.<br />

Flexibility is key to the<br />

system and the conversion<br />

from one format to another<br />

is a simple operation while the<br />

chain carrier can also<br />

be changed automatically.<br />

With its TLM modules,<br />

Schubert can now master<br />

all standard tasks in the<br />

top-loading area. With the<br />

Flowmodul, the company<br />

also enables its customers<br />

to seamlessly integrate the<br />

packing of flow wrap bags<br />

into a TLM system.<br />

New Machinery<br />

Robot picking cell is an<br />

affordable option for all<br />

CKF Systems has<br />

developed a standard<br />

range of cost effective<br />

robot handling cells as<br />

direct replacements for<br />

existing manual operations<br />

while providing easy-touse<br />

technologies with<br />

enhanced capabilities and<br />

a very attractive return on<br />

investment. Last issue (page<br />

14) we covered the palletising<br />

option while this issue, we<br />

highlight the AC05 high speed<br />

robot picking cell.<br />

The AC05 cell has been<br />

developed specifically to<br />

replace manual operations<br />

where its enhanced<br />

functionality and performance<br />

provides a highly flexible and<br />

cost effective alternative.<br />

All aspects of the cell are<br />

based on proven technologies<br />

and utilise user friendly<br />

interfaces for both operatives<br />

and engineers, says CKF Systems.<br />

The cell can easily be<br />

expanded to accommodate a<br />

series of additional modules<br />

such as vision cameras,<br />

product conditioning unit and<br />

quick tool change facility for<br />

handling multiple product<br />

The AC05 high speed robot picking cell is part of a range of affordable units<br />

types and packing formats.<br />

The pack cell can be installed<br />

as a simple standalone<br />

operation or with multiple<br />

pickers mounted over a<br />

common feed conveyor and<br />

dedicated outer handling<br />

conveyor(s).<br />

In operation, the cell offers<br />

significant improvements<br />

to overall efficiency and<br />

flexibility, reduced operating<br />

costs, high levels of reliability<br />

and it is also easy to maintain,<br />

explains Kevin Staines, sales<br />

director at CKF Systems.<br />

Capable of handling a range<br />

of product types with unit<br />

weights of up to 2kg, the cell<br />

also offers a reduced footprint<br />

and configuration with the<br />

perimeter guarding of a single<br />

cell typically occupying a floor<br />

area of 1000mm x 1000mm.<br />

A range of add-on features<br />

are also offered to users.<br />

Liquid pump option<br />

is designed for<br />

volumetric fillers<br />

Multi-fill is now offering a liquid<br />

pump option to expand the range<br />

of products that can be handled<br />

by its volumetric fillers. By adding<br />

a liquid pump to existing or<br />

new fillers, food processors can<br />

retain liquids normally lost in the<br />

process of filling products like<br />

pico de gallo, prepared salads and<br />

fermented vegetables.<br />

When product is loaded into<br />

the hopper, excess liquid drains<br />

off and is collected in a reservoir<br />

and then reintroduced during the<br />

dosing stage. If a drier product is<br />

desired, the liquid can be retained<br />

in the reservoir and discarded<br />

during the cleaning process.<br />

The liquid pump is made<br />

of stainless steel and can be<br />

completely dismantled, without<br />

tools, for thorough cleaning,<br />

New organic<br />

microbeads<br />

are processed<br />

With government plans to ban<br />

microbeads by the end of next<br />

year, cosmetics and domestic<br />

product lines need to be aware of<br />

the further processing required<br />

for organic alternatives.<br />

Decontaminating these natural<br />

ingredients without damaging<br />

their properties is possible with<br />

the Revtech system, which offers<br />

technology with FDA approval<br />

and Campden validation to<br />

greater than 6 logs, says UK<br />

agent Holmach.<br />

Processing natural ingredients<br />

Using unique patented spiral<br />

vibratory technology, Revtech’s<br />

units decontaminate through the<br />

combination of dry radiant heat<br />

with a steam cycle to sterilise the<br />

product. It leaves the processed<br />

particles in a clean, cooled and<br />

secure form ready to be added to<br />

cosmetic and personal care items,<br />

replacing plastic microbeads.<br />

Revtech’s special design allows<br />

fast changes between batches<br />

and easy cleaning for allergens,<br />

including the option of Pyrolosis<br />

cleans. The capacity of the<br />

machines ranges from 200kgs/hr<br />

to greater than 10 tons per hour.<br />

It can also be used for treating<br />

bark and roots used in food<br />

supplements such as Senna for<br />

digestive issues and complies<br />

with COSMOS soil association<br />

standards.<br />

Holmach says that when the<br />

alternatives for processing are<br />

steam heating, raising water<br />

activity and risking mould<br />

growth, or irradiation, Revtech<br />

offers a secure and cost effective<br />

solution to decontamination.<br />

Installation News<br />

Radically new bagging design<br />

delivers downtime reductions<br />

United Snacks at Widnes<br />

has installed the first of<br />

a radically new design<br />

of bagging machine that has<br />

been developed by Italian<br />

manufacturer PFM to provide<br />

higher levels of automation<br />

for film reel changing and<br />

set-up, as well as greater<br />

accuracy and consistency<br />

in seal quality.<br />

Peter Fletcher, United<br />

Snacks’ commercial director<br />

reports substantially reduced<br />

downtime compared with the<br />

two older machines that have<br />

been replaced at the site.<br />

“Reel change is very much<br />

quicker than before, the<br />

layout of the machine gives<br />

much more space to load new<br />

reels and the self-tracking<br />

nature of the system means<br />

any issues with back seals<br />

are rare,” he says.<br />

The new PFM R700 machine<br />

is handling 8 and 11g bags<br />

of Corn Puffs at speeds of<br />

between 100-120 a minute and,<br />

says PFM, breaks new ground<br />

in bagging machine design<br />

by carrying the film unwind<br />

mechanism at the side, rather<br />

The PFM R700 bagger was first demonstrated at the PPMA Show in September and delivers many user benefits<br />

than traditionally at the rear.<br />

This allows the film path to<br />

include a turner bar, the key<br />

to the system, immediately<br />

before the forming tube.<br />

The angle of the bar is<br />

adjustable via motors to<br />

provide lateral movement of<br />

the film, and hence automatic<br />

film centring, with the<br />

position held in memory and<br />

monitored electronically<br />

during production.<br />

No longer is it necessary<br />

for the operator to centre film<br />

largely by hand on a trial-anderror<br />

basis, using adjustable<br />

reel cones.<br />

At the same, the operator<br />

now has a clear view of both<br />

the film feed and the bagmaking<br />

section during set-up<br />

and can manage the process<br />

from a single point, at the<br />

control panel, with no need to<br />

move between the front and<br />

rear of the machine.<br />

“The new MBP R series<br />

machines represent a<br />

milestone in bagger<br />

operation,” says PFM sales<br />

and operations director Chris<br />

Bolton. “By automating film<br />

reel set-up, one of the most<br />

difficult and time-consuming<br />

tasks for operators has been<br />

eliminated.”<br />

New end of line packing operations have<br />

increased packing efficiency for yogurts<br />

Following significant<br />

investment, family business<br />

Tims Dairy now has capacity<br />

to produce 200 tonnes of<br />

yogurt per week made with<br />

fresh British milk and cream<br />

delivered daily. The milk is<br />

heat treated then combined<br />

with live and bio-live cultures<br />

to produce a range of Greek<br />

style, wholemilk and low fat<br />

yogurts, all made with natural<br />

ingredients.<br />

To cater for this expansion,<br />

the company consulted UPM<br />

Conveyors to provide solutions<br />

to the end of line yogurt pot<br />

tray packing and stacking into<br />

stillages to ensure a smooth<br />

transition of product ready<br />

for despatch.<br />

NEW WORK STATIONS<br />

Together, the companies<br />

designed a carousel with work<br />

stations that incorporate a<br />

central packed tray conveyor<br />

to allow operators to pack<br />

150 pots per minute into trays<br />

which can then be transferred<br />

to a stillage via the central<br />

conveyor. To comply with<br />

severe hygiene standards<br />

including full pressure wash<br />

down, all the construction<br />

was stainless steel with<br />

electrical controls to IP67.<br />

After the system was built,<br />

personnel from Tims Dairy<br />

visited UPM for pre-delivery<br />

inspection allowing the<br />

complete unit to be supplied<br />

on site ready for immediate<br />

operation into production.<br />

Further automation is now<br />

also being considered.<br />

Detecting<br />

leaks boosts<br />

snack quality<br />

Ishida’s AirScan inline system<br />

for detecting leaks in MAP packs<br />

has greatly enhanced quality<br />

control procedures, as well as<br />

reducing labour costs for a new<br />

snack product from M-Back<br />

in Germany which is being<br />

produced for dairy giant Meggle.<br />

The ‘Ofenschnecke’ is a<br />

small puff pastry product that is<br />

available in two versions: filled<br />

with a combination of feta cheese<br />

and fresh herbs or spinach.<br />

The rolls, which need to be<br />

warmed up in the oven before<br />

consumption, are packed in<br />

thermoformed trays each<br />

containing two or three products,<br />

with fill weights of 180g and 300g.<br />

Product can get into sealing area<br />

When the delicate puff pastries<br />

are packed, it is not uncommon<br />

for product traces to get into the<br />

sealing area of the trays. This can<br />

result in leaks, which may cause<br />

protective gas to escape and also<br />

draw in moisture.<br />

Ishida AirScan uses laser<br />

technology to detect leaks of<br />

carbon dioxide (CO2), which is<br />

used in many MAP applications.<br />

The high performance system<br />

checks each individual tray in less<br />

than 20 milliseconds for traces of<br />

escaping CO2.<br />

It can reliably find holes with a<br />

diameter as small as 0.25 mm,<br />

at speeds of up to 180 packs<br />

per minute.<br />

Users improve their product<br />

quality without any adverse<br />

impact on products, as the<br />

inspection process does not exert<br />

any pressure and is therefore<br />

completely non-destructive.<br />

Robot cell delivers an<br />

efficient way of work<br />

Suscom Industries, a<br />

supplier of components<br />

to the office furniture<br />

industry, is producing bases<br />

for office chairs in the UK once<br />

again by using two 600 tonne<br />

Romi presses with product<br />

handling and the assembly<br />

of castors managed by three<br />

Kawasaki robots.<br />

Kawasaki Robotics’ systems<br />

integrator Evershed Robotics<br />

was tasked with the design and<br />

installation of the complete cell<br />

which was purpose designed<br />

around the new tool designs.<br />

Cell control is managed<br />

through the Kawasaki robots’<br />

integrated K-Logic PLCs with<br />

each mould tool having its own<br />

control box to select the correct<br />

programme.<br />

Each Romi press is served<br />

by a Kawasaki RS-20N robot<br />

which picks the completed<br />

moulding and sprue from<br />

the mould ejector pins.<br />

The new tooling design allows<br />

for the sprue to be detached by<br />

the tool but to be retained for<br />

collection along with the chair<br />

base moulding.<br />

Placing the chair base onto<br />

a cooling conveyor the same<br />

Kawasaki robot then picks up<br />

a slip ring, delivered by bowl<br />

feeder, which it assembles into<br />

the centre of the moulding.<br />

The cell is consistent and reliable in its output of 1,000 chair bases per shift<br />

Each Romi press has its own<br />

robot and conveyor delivering<br />

mouldings to a single<br />

Kawasaki RS-50N robot.<br />

This third robot unloads<br />

chair bases from the cooling<br />

conveyors and places them<br />

firstly into a turnover jig and<br />

then into a castor assembly<br />

cell. Castors can be one of<br />

two sizes so the programme<br />

ensures the robot is instructed<br />

to pick from the correct bowl<br />

feeder each time.<br />

After moving to a check point<br />

that confirms the correct size<br />

Cell control is now managed through the robots’ integrated K-Logic PLCs<br />

has been picked, the robot then<br />

presses the castor into one of<br />

the five location points.<br />

On completion of castor<br />

assembly the robot picks up the<br />

assembled base and places it<br />

onto another conveyor where it<br />

is finally unloaded manually.<br />

Joel Rockwood, Suscom<br />

Industries’ production manager<br />

believes that developing a<br />

new chair base, designed for<br />

automation, has given Suscom<br />

a far better product than the<br />

currently available generic<br />

designs. “Unlike generic<br />

imports, mouldings that come<br />

straight from our new tooling<br />

require no further coatings<br />

or fillers, there are no surface<br />

imperfections, and they<br />

are overall a much stronger<br />

product,” he says.<br />

“The cell is absolutely<br />

consistent and reliable in its<br />

output of 1,000 chair bases per<br />

12 hour shift, which we manage<br />

with just two operators. The<br />

robot system has surpassed<br />

what is expected of it both<br />

in speed and in maintaining<br />

a very clean and orderly<br />

environment.”<br />

Manual picking mistakes are<br />

eliminated with new solution<br />

Mitsubishi Electric Air<br />

Conditioning Europe<br />

is now using guided<br />

operator solutions at its<br />

Livingston plant to enhance<br />

quality control processes by<br />

reducing the opportunity<br />

for picking mistakes in its<br />

production cells where<br />

several different products<br />

are assembled.<br />

In addition, there was a<br />

desire to increase productivity<br />

by helping workers to quickly<br />

adapt to new assembly<br />

processes.<br />

Sister company Mitsubishi<br />

Electric, Factory Automation<br />

has supplied its new guided<br />

operator solutions, a<br />

versatile system that uses a<br />

PLC to control parts picking<br />

sequences using lights, doors,<br />

terminals and touch sensors.<br />

This is coupled with high<br />

definition HMI screens that<br />

guide operators through their<br />

live assembly tasks.<br />

The HMI screens have been<br />

used to replace a system of<br />

complex product cards that<br />

were previously used for work<br />

instructions. As part of the<br />

integrated new system, the<br />

screens allow for instructions<br />

and prompts to be added to<br />

a pick sequence that ensures<br />

the correct part is selected.<br />

“We operate semi-automated<br />

Audrey Smith is production section<br />

manager at the air conditioning site<br />

Importantly, the installation has addressed the operator training challenge as the terminals now guide operators<br />

assembly cells, each of which<br />

offers the facility to assemble a<br />

number of different products,”<br />

explains production<br />

section manager at the air<br />

conditioning plant Audrey<br />

Smith. “Due to the fact that<br />

we make several products in<br />

one work space there is a high<br />

potential for operator error<br />

and to combat this, operators<br />

have to have a high level of<br />

training in order to work on the<br />

assembly line.”<br />

The high level of training<br />

required in the past also added<br />

to the overall cost of production,<br />

and so was an obvious target<br />

for improvement.<br />

As part of a trial, guided<br />

operator solutions were first<br />

installed in a cell assembling<br />

modules for heating and cooling<br />

units. For the trial installation,<br />

a pick-to-light system with<br />

visual indicators on the parts<br />

bins was combined with light<br />

curtains or touch switches for<br />

pick confirmation. Mechanised<br />

doors that opened in sequence<br />

were also used to create a<br />

physical barrier to prevent<br />

any wrong part selection.<br />

The effectiveness of each<br />

combination was compared<br />

and the results combined with<br />

Picking is now much more reliable<br />

user preferences in order to<br />

gauge overall effectiveness for<br />

different component bins and<br />

process sequences.<br />

The installation built for<br />

the air conditioning plant<br />

was commissioned around<br />

Mitsubishi Electric MELSEC<br />

Q series modular PLCs and<br />

GOT2000 HMI operator<br />

terminals, all connected over<br />

a dedicated network.<br />

“From an operator’s point<br />

of view, rather than complex<br />

paper based assembly<br />

instructions, the HMI now<br />

presents a set of clearly<br />

defined work instructions,”<br />

explains Greg Hookings, senior<br />

manager strategic business<br />

development EMEA for factory<br />

automation at Mitsubishi<br />

Electric. “It gives the operator<br />

a sequential visual indication<br />

of the parts to be picked for<br />

building each assembly,<br />

and their quantities.<br />

“Although the work<br />

instructions for the assembly<br />

of these products are complex<br />

and detailed, the installation<br />

has had an immediate impact<br />

on the assembly cells,”<br />

he continues. “Picking has<br />

not only become inherently<br />

more reliable and error-free,<br />

but also much faster and<br />

therefore quality and overall<br />

productivity have both shown<br />

a marked improvement.”<br />

Importantly, the application<br />

has also addressed the<br />

operator training challenge at<br />

the plant. The terminals now<br />

guide operators to the correct<br />

parts and the GOT HMI shows<br />

clear images of the product<br />

to be assembled. This has<br />

reduced the resource required<br />

for training, while actually<br />

improving the time taken to<br />

learn each process.<br />

Another key benefit for the<br />

air conditioning plant was the<br />

excellent integration of the<br />

hardware at the site.<br />

The company is now looking<br />

at implementing similar<br />

systems on all six stages of<br />

its assembly line.<br />

and incorporates a method<br />

of determining the size of<br />

the pack and locating it at a<br />

“The first wrapper installed<br />

was fully operational forty<br />

minutes after being unloaded<br />

and ran for a complete shift<br />

“This and the subsequent<br />

Fuji flow wrappers have<br />

proved ideal for our<br />

manufacturing process which<br />

encompasses multiple product<br />

lines, short runs and constant<br />

are handled<br />

with ease<br />

As Riverford now delivers about<br />

47,000 organic boxes of seasonal<br />

vegetables to households in<br />

England every week, it has had to<br />

increase its weighing output and<br />

so has installed an MP-14-9600-<br />

2500-H-UL multihead unit<br />

from Multipond.<br />

The most diverse range<br />

of products, from lettuce to<br />

chard leaves to various types of<br />

vegetables need to be weighed by<br />

the fully automated process.<br />

In operation, product is fed to the<br />

weighing system via a conveyor.<br />

Once at the top of the weigher, the<br />

product is first conveyed to the<br />

prefeed hoppers via the radially<br />

positioned feed trays and then<br />

to the weigh hoppers below.<br />

A computer uses the partial<br />

portions to determine the best<br />

combination that achieves the<br />

target weight of between 50g<br />

up to 500g, depending on<br />

product and packaging. The fully<br />

automated calibration of the<br />

proprietary load cells ensures the<br />

highest accuracy and availability<br />

by means of calibration weight.<br />

After the actual weighing<br />

process, the accurate weight<br />

portions are transferred using<br />

a timing hopper to the form, fill<br />

and seal machine. The line runs<br />

continuously at up to 56 weighings<br />

per minute, depending on product<br />

and target weight. The standard<br />

deviation is less than 1% of the<br />

target weight to be achieved.<br />

Finally, a conveyor takes the<br />

packed product to a collection<br />

point. Here, a worker distributes<br />

the packs among the organic<br />

boxes and adds other products.<br />

“We are impressed most of all by<br />

how perfectly the weigher handles<br />

our diverse products,” says John<br />

Philip, production supervisor at<br />

Riverford. “The extremely simple<br />

operator guidance and the logical<br />

structure of the operating unit are<br />

also big plus points.”<br />

“We received a really positive<br />

response at the show, illustrating<br />

where manufacturing in the<br />

UK is potentially heading, with<br />

operators working more closely<br />

alongside robots. It’s exciting to<br />

see this product innovation and<br />

the opportunities it could present<br />

for factory automation,” says<br />

Andy Howson, sales manager<br />

for FlexLink Systems.<br />

In addition to factory<br />

automation, the topic of clean<br />

production processes within<br />

the food industry was also<br />

high on the agenda.<br />

Designed specifically for<br />

hygienic environments, FlexLink<br />

Visitors and exhibitors are<br />

delighted with Total Show<br />

The UK’s latest<br />

developments in<br />

processing and<br />

packaging machinery,<br />

materials, containers and<br />

packaging design solutions<br />

were on show at the PPMA<br />

Total Show <strong>2016</strong> in September<br />

and if you missed the event,<br />

the following fifteen pages<br />

outline just some of the<br />

new equipment that was<br />

demonstrated.<br />

The triennial PPMA Total<br />

Show welcomed 1,200 leading<br />

packaging and processing<br />

machinery manufacturers<br />

to showcase the latest<br />

technological advances<br />

and discuss key business<br />

opportunities with more than<br />

7,300 visitors. There was also<br />

a full seminar programme<br />

and the awards dinner on the<br />

first evening.<br />

Exhibitors and visitors<br />

alike seemed very happy<br />

with the exhibition and<br />

business was certainly being<br />

conducted during the threeday<br />

event. Gainsborough<br />

Industrial Controls (GIC), for<br />

example, had a great show.<br />

Rovema celebrated its 30th<br />

birthday with a bigger stand and<br />

a prize draw each day which<br />

culminated in the overall winner<br />

being able to sample some<br />

hospitality at the company’s<br />

manufacturing site in Fernwald<br />

near Giessen in Germany.<br />

“The feedback from customers<br />

old and new was extremely<br />

positive,” says Rovema’s UK<br />

sales manager Alistair Bown.<br />

“Demonstrating our new<br />

cartoning machine has<br />

ensured a decent level of<br />

footfall across all three days<br />

Visitors to the PPMA Total Show <strong>2016</strong> saw new equipment demonstrated<br />

The UK-based designer and<br />

manufacturer of vertical<br />

form, fill and seal packaging<br />

solutions confirmed an order<br />

for over £250,000 on the first<br />

day. “We’ve had real quality<br />

enquiries and we’re pleased<br />

with the turnout,” says<br />

Luke Murphy, director at GIC.<br />

“The show is really important<br />

to the industry as it helps to<br />

showcase equipment, new<br />

ideas and enables the industry<br />

to network.”<br />

And PPMA Group exhibition<br />

manager David Harrison<br />

agrees. “The PPMA Total<br />

Show <strong>2016</strong> has been extremely<br />

successful and the expanded<br />

show format was well received<br />

by visitors and exhibitors<br />

alike,” he says. “The show was<br />

busy and there was a real buzz<br />

on the show floor particularly<br />

on the second and third day.<br />

“Over 150 exhibitors have<br />

already booked stands at the<br />

PPMA Show 2017, which is<br />

a testament to how good<br />

the event was,” he asserts.<br />

The Super Seal Max was shown<br />

Induction cap<br />

sealer is a<br />

powerful unit<br />

Enercon Industries unveiled<br />

its latest and most powerful<br />

induction cap sealing machine.<br />

The new Super Seal Max<br />

bonds a foil seal to the neck of<br />

a container and is the second<br />

addition to the Super Seal Touch<br />

range of equipment which comes<br />

complete with a multi-language<br />

touch screen.<br />

“This is a massive step<br />

forward for high speed lines,”<br />

says Enercon’s UK sales manager<br />

Brian Tyndall.<br />

“The unit provides users with<br />

an increased level of control via<br />

the full colour, multi-language<br />

touch screen, while its simple<br />

menu allows for quick navigation<br />

of changes to be made with just<br />

one touch.”<br />

This machine aims to offer<br />

a flexible solution for food and<br />

beverages, pharmaceuticals,<br />

chemicals, cosmetics<br />

and household products<br />

manufacturers. It can be used as a<br />

standalone production unit or be<br />

fully integrated into a continuous<br />

filling and capping line, giving<br />

complete flexibility of operation.<br />

“We are confident that this<br />

high performance model can<br />

be integrated successfully into<br />

European production lines -<br />

resulting in optimal productivity<br />

for our clients,” adds Tyndall.<br />

“By adding a foil seal to a<br />

container, products can benefit<br />

from extended shelf life, product<br />

freshness, leak prevention,<br />

tamper evidence, counterfeit<br />

protection and also unit<br />

cost reduction.”<br />

Entry-level CIJ offers<br />

benefits to all sectors<br />

Linx Printing Technologies<br />

launched a compact and<br />

totally portable entrylevel<br />

CIJ (continuous ink jet)<br />

printer which is capable of<br />

delivering quality two line<br />

codes to users.<br />

The company says that<br />

its new Linx 10 will appeal<br />

to smaller businesses that<br />

need to code products for the<br />

first time or whose potential<br />

for business growth is<br />

hampered by the use of less<br />

flexible, non-digital coding<br />

methods such as print and<br />

apply labelling, stamping or<br />

hand applied labels. Manual<br />

coding methods can restrict a<br />

business’s ability to increase<br />

production rates to meet<br />

demand, while many retail<br />

customers may require higher<br />

quality codes or more<br />

detailed information, which<br />

must be contained within<br />

a small space.<br />

In addition,<br />

the portability<br />

of the printer<br />

means it can<br />

be used as<br />

a back-up<br />

machine for<br />

experienced<br />

CIJ users,<br />

which can<br />

quickly be<br />

moved and<br />

set up wherever required.<br />

Its compact dimensions will<br />

also benefit packing lines<br />

where space is an issue.<br />

The Linx 10 is about half<br />

the weight and footprint<br />

Quality two line codes are achieved<br />

The new printer can be moved easily<br />

Linx thinks typical applications will include artisan food and drink makers<br />

of other CIJ printers and<br />

features a carry handle and<br />

printhead dock that make it<br />

totally portable. As well as<br />

its small size, the printer can<br />

be mounted directly onto a<br />

conveyor or production line<br />

to save<br />

even more<br />

space. At just<br />

53cm wide<br />

and 19cm<br />

deep, it can<br />

be placed<br />

exactly<br />

where<br />

needed on<br />

the line,<br />

while<br />

its sturdy<br />

construction ensures that<br />

print performance and<br />

quality are unaffected by line<br />

vibrations.<br />

Although competitively<br />

priced as an entry-level<br />

printer, the Linx 10 has<br />

adopted several proven<br />

features from other models in<br />

the Linx range. In particular,<br />

it offers fast and easy message<br />

set-up via a colour touch<br />

screen that includes imagebased<br />

code selection to reduce<br />

coding errors and speed up<br />

product changeovers.<br />

A special feature is the Linx<br />

10’s integrated automatic line<br />

speed sensor which<br />

eliminates the need for a<br />

separate sensor attached to<br />

the line or a product detector,<br />

making set-up on the line<br />

easier. “This is a significant<br />

benefit where the coder is<br />

frequently moved between<br />

lines,” explains marketing<br />

director at Linx John Tierney.<br />

“The line speed sensor<br />

assesses the speed of a line<br />

or conveyor and ensures<br />

that codes are printed in<br />

the right place at the right<br />

time, regardless of the line<br />

speed, even if it fluctuates,”<br />

he continues.<br />

“This delivers consistent<br />

code quality.”<br />

Another significant benefit<br />

is that the printer has been<br />

designed so that customers<br />

have the option to service the<br />

printer themselves without<br />

the need for an engineer to<br />

attend. In addition, the robust<br />

stainless steel IP55-rated<br />

construction ensures reliable<br />

and consistent operation,<br />

and the market-leading Linx<br />

printhead requires minimal<br />

cleaning once a month, while<br />

consumables are easy to<br />

replace via a mess-free clean<br />

cartridge system.<br />

Hand guidance unit can<br />

cut robot training times<br />

On show was the Fanuc<br />

CR-35iA collaborative<br />

robot which has<br />

now been fitted with hand<br />

guidance capability.<br />

With the hand guidance<br />

unit, users can easily and<br />

intuitively instruct the robot<br />

in individual handling<br />

operations and complete<br />

movements without any<br />

programming. Employees<br />

need to spend less time<br />

training robots - or being<br />

trained to program them.<br />

Using the hand guidance<br />

unit to guide the robot by<br />

hand, robot moves can<br />

be preset into the CR-35iA<br />

without the complexity of<br />

programming.<br />

Examples include the ability<br />

to: guide the robot arm and<br />

tooling by hand to the right<br />

point; pick-up and carry a<br />

workpiece; manually control<br />

and improve a handling<br />

application in a safe way<br />

or position a part with<br />

minimum effort.<br />

The human-safe, TÜV<br />

certified CR-35iA has a 35kg<br />

payload and can assist with<br />

high payload handling,<br />

Fanuc’s hand guidance unit can complete a variety of tasks in a safe way<br />

assembly, component feeding<br />

and workpiece loading and<br />

unloading tasks that have<br />

historically had to be carried<br />

out manually. Key target<br />

areas include automation<br />

assembly lines, metalworking<br />

and also packaging.<br />

While most other<br />

collaborative robots are<br />

encased in a sensing cover<br />

that stops the robot when a<br />

human gets too close,<br />

Fanuc’s collaborative robot<br />

ensures safety through the<br />

use of intelligent sensors,<br />

which automatically stop the<br />

robot if it touches a human<br />

operator.<br />

This means the CR-35iA<br />

PPMA Total Show Review<br />

Total<br />

SHOW <strong>2016</strong><br />

Semi-automatic filler allows<br />

upgrades to handle changes<br />

Adelphi showed a<br />

prototype of the semiautomatic<br />

version of<br />

its System F range of filling<br />

equipment.<br />

The so-called System F-600<br />

not only delivers consistent<br />

flow rates across all filling<br />

heads, it can also be cost<br />

effectively upgraded with<br />

additional filling heads<br />

and automated by fitting<br />

a conveyor and additional<br />

safety guarding.<br />

Designed with simplicity<br />

and scalability in mind,<br />

the frame on the unit offers<br />

an economical and simple<br />

upgrade path. For instance,<br />

if an increase in production<br />

demand is anticipated, the<br />

unit can be configured from<br />

the outset on the wider System<br />

F-1200 frame, with twice the<br />

potential capacity of the<br />

F-600 version.<br />

UPGRADE IS POSSIBLE<br />

Upgrading from the System<br />

F-600 to the wider system<br />

is, however, also possible.<br />

A large number of components<br />

are directly transferable,<br />

and the majority of wetted<br />

components can also be<br />

reused if further upgrades<br />

are required.<br />

In terms of product dosing,<br />

the filler can accept a wide<br />

variety of dosing technologies<br />

with standard options being<br />

flowmeters or servo driven<br />

volumetric pumps.<br />

PLC control from Omron with<br />

a full colour touch screen HMI<br />

is recommended as standard,<br />

but other approved systems<br />

can also be specified.<br />

INTERCHANGABILITY<br />

Easily interchangeable<br />

manifolds and tanks can<br />

also be specified to simplify<br />

product supply to the<br />

machine.<br />

“All elements of the design<br />

have been questioned in<br />

the development of this<br />

machine,” explains Dan<br />

Smith, managing director<br />

of Adelphi. “The result is a<br />

robust, modular filling system<br />

that delivers outstanding<br />

production flexibility and<br />

output as well as cost saving<br />

efficiency and future-proof<br />

scalability,” he says.<br />

Reaction at the show to the<br />

new system was said to<br />

be “fantastic”.<br />

The fact that the unit<br />

can grow with changing<br />

production requirements<br />

negates the need to<br />

write off any existing<br />

equipment, says<br />

Adelphi. Machine<br />

enhancements include<br />

capping stations, pitch<br />

adjustment, conveyors,<br />

neck location modules<br />

and full guarding.<br />

T 01444 472300<br />

Every element of the<br />

System F range is<br />

designed with hygiene<br />

in mind, including<br />

quick-strip product<br />

contact parts that<br />

are made in 316L<br />

grade stainless<br />

steel, and no<br />

horizontal surfaces<br />

where fluids can<br />

pool in operation.<br />

The area under<br />

the machine is<br />

also easy to see<br />

New series of applicators for hot melt adhesives provide<br />

simplicity in use, production flexibility and also reliability<br />

At the show, Protek<br />

demonstrated the<br />

Easy Touch Series<br />

of applicators for hot melt<br />

adhesives. These units, says<br />

Protek managing director<br />

Eamonn Talbot, offer<br />

production flexibility and<br />

reliability, quick installation<br />

and full integration with any<br />

packaging line to provide<br />

the maximum operational<br />

flexibility. “This latest range<br />

offers more features for the<br />

same price as previous units,”<br />

he tells Machinery Update.<br />

The New Life series provides exceptionally clean<br />

adhesive dispensing with a self-cleaning nozzle<br />

The new microprocessor<br />

controls operations such as<br />

temperature-regulation in<br />

all different system<br />

areas and pattern<br />

control for up to<br />

eight independent<br />

glue patterns.<br />

A new specifically<br />

designed colour<br />

touch screen<br />

shows all the<br />

machine sections<br />

(tank, manifold,<br />

hoses and guns<br />

with respective<br />

parameters) graphically.<br />

This allows for easy system<br />

programming, even by<br />

unskilled operators,<br />

eliminating problems<br />

generated by codes and<br />

foreign languages. A specific<br />

notification area displays<br />

the system status, which<br />

provides easy to understand<br />

information at a glance.<br />

In case of eventual alarms<br />

or faults, error messages are<br />

displayed clearly.<br />

PPMA Total Show Review<br />

Fully operational smart factory<br />

provided an Industry 4.0 insight<br />

Omron provided an insight<br />

to how the Industry 4.0<br />

concept could look in<br />

reality by demonstrating a fully<br />

operational simulated Smart<br />

Factory. This Smart Factory<br />

demonstration featured three<br />

Adept robots, including two<br />

autonomous indoor vehicle<br />

Lynx robots.<br />

The first step in creating<br />

a fully automated Smart<br />

Factory, is gaining a complete<br />

understanding of the overall<br />

concept, as well as the<br />

individual components that<br />

make up the concept, says<br />

Omron. To demonstrate how<br />

each part of Industry 4.0<br />

interacts with each other to<br />

form a coherent, beneficial<br />

whole, Omron launched its<br />

‘Innovation by Automation’<br />

philosophy at the show.<br />

The philosophy is based on<br />

three key pillars; Integrated<br />

Automation, Intelligent<br />

Automation and Interactive<br />

Automation, which together<br />

form the basis of a successful<br />

Industry 4.0 implementation.<br />

To demonstrate that<br />

‘Innovation by Automation’ is<br />

not just for a theoretical future<br />

and can translate into present<br />

reality, Omron incorporated<br />

its latest products into a real<br />

working Smart Factory at<br />

the exhibition. The factory<br />

The Smart Factory demo utilised the ‘Innovation by Automation’ philosophy<br />

application consisted of<br />

autonomous robots loading<br />

and unloading a robot<br />

cell, which inspected and<br />

sorted the products on the<br />

robot-supplied pallets. All<br />

relevant data was captured<br />

and uploaded to a database<br />

through open standard<br />

communication protocols.<br />

At the beginning of the<br />

process, the operator created<br />

an order on Omron’s NA HMI<br />

by selecting different boxes<br />

on a pallet. A Viper 6-axis<br />

articulated robot assembled<br />

the order on a pallet using<br />

product from the buffer and<br />

also from the warehouse,<br />

which is delivered using<br />

a Lynx AIV. The incoming<br />

pallets were then inspected<br />

by an Omron FH vision system<br />

upon delivery to the robot cell.<br />

The order was then picked<br />

by the Viper robot and once<br />

finished, was inspected again.<br />

If the inspection was good,<br />

the Lynx AIV then delivered<br />

the pallet.<br />

To further demonstrate the<br />

flexibility of the system, each<br />

box had a different colour and<br />

2D code which is logged in<br />

the SQL database ready for<br />

further analysis.<br />

The Integrated Automation<br />

pillar of Omron’s ‘Innovation<br />

by Automation’ philosophy<br />

states that every machine<br />

and device must be smart<br />

and connected to ensure<br />

complete control and<br />

total visibility. Advanced<br />

integration of logic, motion,<br />

safety, robotics, together<br />

with database connectivity<br />

using open networks and<br />

communications protocols<br />

facilitate this process.<br />

According to the Omron<br />

philosophy, in a Smart<br />

Factory the foundation<br />

for precise evaluation and<br />

intelligent visualisation of<br />

the process is the collection<br />

and organisation of data from<br />

relevant machines and quality<br />

data from inspection systems.<br />

Omron’s Adept Lynx is a<br />

high payload, autonomous<br />

indoor vehicle that doesn’t<br />

need marked routes or<br />

targets to navigate like the<br />

older generation of AGV<br />

robots. It uses lasers to map<br />

its surroundings and can<br />

then intelligently guide itself<br />

within permitted areas.<br />

It can work safely and<br />

efficiently with humans as<br />

it reacts and changes route<br />

in real-time to avoid any<br />

obstacles, therefore providing<br />

interactive automation.<br />

The MiR100 platform<br />

of efficient and userfriendly<br />

mobile robots<br />

for the automation of internal<br />

transport was on the stand<br />

of RARUK Automation.<br />

This new generation of<br />

advanced mobile robots<br />

is designed to optimise<br />

workflows, free-up staff<br />

resources for more valuable<br />

tasks and allow users to<br />

increase productivity, shorten<br />

delivery times and reduce<br />

costs. Indeed, the company<br />

says that the high operational<br />

efficiency achieved means that<br />

return on investment can be<br />

achieved within 12 months<br />

in many instances.<br />

Designed for small to<br />

medium transport tasks<br />

within the industrial, logistics<br />

and healthcare sectors, the<br />

MiR100 requires no structural<br />

changes to the building,<br />

wires in the floor or sensors<br />

in the ceiling. The design<br />

allows agile driving through<br />

doorways, as well as in and<br />

out of lifts. Moreover, integral<br />

technology means that the<br />

robot can either ‘identify’<br />

its own driving areas and<br />

Thanks to its high<br />

specification safety features,<br />

the MiR100 can be used for<br />

collaborative operations in<br />

environments populated<br />

by people. It automatically<br />

decelerates, stops and<br />

re-routes around obstacles<br />

as necessary using integral<br />

scanners, 3D cameras and<br />

ultrasound. In addition,<br />

handling is extremely<br />

smooth as the mobile robot<br />

is equipped with a bogie-type<br />

suspension: a chassis serving<br />

as a module sub-assembly of<br />

wheels and axles that result in<br />

improved weight distribution<br />

and improved surface traction.<br />

Importantly, user-friendly<br />

software ensures that anyone<br />

can program the robot, while<br />

operations can be overseen<br />

via smartphone, tablet or<br />

PC. As transport needs and<br />

demands vary, so customers<br />

The CV3770 machine from<br />

Mettler Toledo was seen<br />

for the first time at the<br />

show and offers checkweighing<br />

with inspection for inaccurate<br />

labelling and essential prints<br />

as part of a single product<br />

inspection process.<br />

It continuously detects defective<br />

products to ensure accurate<br />

certified weights, correct<br />

labelling, packaging and<br />

verification of critical prints.<br />

Performing multiple<br />

inspections on three surfaces<br />

over a wide range of product<br />

sizes and with an easy-to-use<br />

interface, the CV3770 operates<br />

effectively in virtually any<br />

consumer product packaging<br />

line, says the company.<br />

One thing that the CV3770<br />

combination system offers is<br />

immediate detection of any<br />

label mix-up which can save<br />

recovery and rework costs as<br />

well as minimising the risk of<br />

product recalls, says Mettler.<br />

The unit also controls the<br />

labelling and print quality<br />

as well as being part of an<br />

overall quality control system<br />

designed to meet retailer<br />

demands for certification.<br />

The machine performs two different jobs in the same footprint and same HMI<br />

Meanwhile, the<br />

checkweighing system verifies<br />

the weight of the product,<br />

reliably rejecting over and<br />

under-filled products to<br />

significantly reduce product<br />

waste and ensure compliance<br />

with global regulatory<br />

standards.<br />

“This machine can basically<br />

perform two different jobs in<br />

the same footprint and with<br />

the same HMI,” explains<br />

Paul Warfield, PI product<br />

specialist at Mettler Toledo.<br />

“This makes it a more cost<br />

PPMA Total Show Review<br />

Multi-aperture detectors<br />

are space saving options<br />

Fortress Technology<br />

has designed a multiaperture,<br />

multi-lane<br />

metal detector range which<br />

allows food manufacturers<br />

to reduce factory footprint,<br />

investment and ongoing<br />

operating costs. Already<br />

successfully installed in<br />

two, four and five lane<br />

configurations by several<br />

leading UK food factories,<br />

Fortress demonstrated the<br />

production benefits and<br />

cost efficiencies of this new<br />

concept which it believes to be<br />

the first technology of its kind.<br />

“Until now, factories<br />

wanting a multi-lane system to<br />

inspect food items had limited<br />

options, but our technology<br />

is a game changer,” says<br />

Fortress’s European sales<br />

director Phil Brown. Featuring<br />

a single metal detector<br />

mounted across multiple<br />

food packing and processing<br />

conveyor lines, the Fortress<br />

unit is uniquely divided into<br />

individual apertures, setting<br />

a new industry standard for<br />

performance. Because there’s<br />

a dedicated aperture for<br />

each lane, the range is more<br />

sensitive to smaller metal<br />

particles, detecting all metal<br />

types down 0.7 mm ferrous,<br />

0.7 mm non ferrous and<br />

1.4 mm stainless steel.<br />

The multi-aperture system offers benefits in reduced footprint and less waste<br />

In addition, this smaller<br />

aperture copes better with<br />

orientation and product effect.<br />

By consolidating this<br />

multi-aperture technology into<br />

one unit spanning multiple<br />

lanes, as opposed to individual<br />

metal detectors, cuts the<br />

equipment footprint by over<br />

50%, optimising factory floor<br />

space. The unit also sharpens<br />

operational efficiencies,<br />

reducing initial investment<br />

costs for food processors and<br />

packers by up to 40%.<br />

In comparison to larger<br />

metal detectors with a single<br />

aperture, the multi-aperture<br />

system only inspects and<br />

rejects contaminated products<br />

from the individual conveyor,<br />

which in a five-lane system<br />

can cut false product rejects<br />

by up to 400%.<br />

Most recently, Fortress<br />

collaborated with Sparc<br />

Systems to design a ferrousonly<br />

five-lane multi-aperture<br />

metal detector. This totally<br />

unique application was<br />

customised to inspect foil spice<br />

packs and integrated with a<br />

five-lane Sparc checkweigher.<br />

For Fortress, this installation<br />

was deemed a real engineering<br />

triumph, with the multiaperture<br />

technology being<br />

integral to the project’s success.<br />

Entry level case sealer offers<br />

future proof technical option<br />

Launched by Endoline<br />

Machinery was a new<br />

entry level case sealing<br />

machine - the 611 – that<br />

offers a low investment<br />

for manufacturers built to<br />

Endoline’s typical quality<br />

but with the added option of<br />

technical enhancement further<br />

down the line if required.<br />

“In reaching a decision<br />

to automate, our customers’<br />

businesses have evolved to a<br />

point where manual labour<br />

is often not an efficient use of<br />

time,” explains Andrew Yates,<br />

sales director at Endoline.<br />

“However, we recognise that,<br />

as our customers continue to<br />

evolve, so too will the demands<br />

One of the additional options<br />

includes the integration of a<br />

into place before sealing,<br />

which overcomes tearing or<br />

the risk of the case opening<br />

How GS1 UK’s<br />

standards can help<br />

to meet drug laws<br />

Glen Hodgson is head of<br />

healthcare at GS1 UK<br />

and here, he outlines<br />

why anti-counterfeiting<br />

legislation is increasingly<br />

being introduced around the world<br />

and how GS1 standards help.<br />

According to Interpol, more<br />

than one million people die every<br />

year from counterfeit drugs, and<br />

the World Health Organisation<br />

estimates that about 1% of all<br />

medicines in the developed world<br />

are counterfeit. Even here in the<br />

UK it’s a problem – in the first half<br />

of this year 12,000,000 fake or<br />

unlicensed products were seized<br />

by the medicines regulator,<br />

the MHRA.<br />

These statistics alone are<br />

enough to show that the problem<br />

of counterfeit drugs is an issue<br />

that can no longer be ignored.<br />

And that’s why increasing<br />

legislation is coming into force,<br />

bringing the healthcare industry<br />

together to tackle the problem.<br />

The Falsified Medicines Directive<br />

(FMD) is right at the centre of<br />

this battle, of course.<br />

The initiative was adopted<br />

by the European Parliament in<br />

2011 and is set for pan-European<br />

implementation by February 2019.<br />

By requiring safety features to be<br />

added on the packs of medicines,<br />

the FMD aims to prevent any<br />

The EFPIA<br />

endorses GS1<br />

standards as<br />

they enhance<br />

patient safety<br />

counterfeit drugs entering the<br />

supply chain and this means<br />

that all medicines can be verified<br />

and authenticated.<br />

The FMD requires manufacturers<br />

of pharmaceuticals to put a<br />

2-dimensional barcode on the<br />

packaging of all products to<br />

identify the product, expiry<br />

date, batch number and serial<br />

number, and these must be on<br />

the packaging in a ‘human<br />

readable format’ too.<br />

Packaging also needs a tamperproof<br />

security seal.<br />

And that’s where GS1 standards<br />

come in, says Hodgson. The<br />

European Federation of<br />

Pharmaceutical Industries and<br />

Associations (EFPIA) chose the GS1<br />

2D DataMatrix as its data carrier<br />

of choice for the identification of<br />

products, encoded with a product<br />

The next 14 pages include<br />

details of kit that is helping the<br />

pharma sector tackle the FMD<br />

code, serial number, batch number<br />

and expiry date.<br />

“The EFPIA endorses GS1<br />

standards because they enhance<br />

patient safety and can help prevent<br />

counterfeit drugs from entering the<br />

supply chain,” he says.<br />

GS1 standards do this by<br />

enabling the unique identification<br />

of every person, every product<br />

and every place – this means<br />

they guarantee that every pack<br />

of medicine can be checked and<br />

verified at any stage of the supply<br />

chain. And if anything needs<br />

recalling, it can be identified down<br />

to the individual pack.<br />

It’s with standards that<br />

healthcare professionals can<br />

know where drugs and medical<br />

equipment have come from,<br />

who has administered them and<br />

who they’ve come into contact<br />

with. They give the industry<br />

the certainty of truth and the<br />

common foundation that’s<br />

needed to enhance patient safety<br />

and improve confidence in care<br />

delivery, he says.<br />

Serialisation –<br />

it could be the<br />

happy ending…<br />

Bart Vansteenkiste, global life sciences sector manager at Domino,<br />

believes the travails of integrating item-level serialisation into the<br />

working environment will pay off sooner than expected<br />

Some 14 billion pharmaceutical<br />

prescriptions are issued in<br />

the EU annually, and with the<br />

reported growth in chronic<br />

conditions such as diabetes,<br />

that figure is sure to rise inexorably.<br />

By contrast, the scale of the trade in<br />

illicit medicines is notoriously difficult<br />

to quantify but a recent report from the<br />

European Observatory on Infringements<br />

of Intellectual Property Rights estimates<br />

that some 4.4% of legitimate sales are<br />

lost annually, with a direct cost to the<br />

EU and pharmaceutical manufacturers<br />

of more than €10 billion and also an<br />

Bart Vansteenkiste is the global life sciences<br />

sector manager at Domino Printing Sciences<br />

associated loss of €1.7 billion in<br />

government revenue.<br />

Further findings of the report are that –<br />

if not contained – the trade could result<br />

in the loss of up to 40,000 direct and<br />

90,000 indirect jobs.<br />

Evidence of the impact of falsified<br />

drugs on patients within the EU is<br />

hard to come by but reports from the<br />

developing world provide a stark<br />

warning: in Kashmir, a fake antibiotic<br />

has been identified as the cause of death<br />

of almost 8,000 patients over a five-year<br />

period, while in West Africa last year, the<br />

presence in the supply chain of expired<br />

meningitis vaccines hampered efforts to<br />

contain the spread of the virus.<br />

Serialisation, or the assignment of a<br />

unique, fully traceable identity to each<br />

item prescribed or sold, is the latest in a<br />

long line of attempts to fight the fakers<br />

– but the signs are that it is our best<br />

chance yet of safeguarding patients and<br />

stemming the flow of revenues to the<br />

criminal fraternity.<br />

While these positive outcomes may<br />

seem remote for those currently working<br />

through complex serialisation projects,<br />

it will bring some reassurance that,<br />

once in place, their Falsified Medicines<br />

Directive (FMD)-compliant serialisation<br />

solution is compatible with virtually all<br />

pharmaceutical traceability legislation<br />

summary<br />

SERIALISE OR DIE<br />

The long lead-in time for the Falsified<br />

Medicines Directive (FMD) compliance<br />

has brought many advantages such as:<br />

■ ■ Advances in data storage will allow the<br />

huge volumes of data that will be generated<br />

to be handled more easily<br />

■■<br />

The well-documented shortage in vendor<br />

capacity has had more time to sort itself out<br />

■■<br />

Off-the-shelf serialisation solutions are now<br />

emerging from the vendor community<br />

■ ■ New standard solutions will make the path<br />

to serialisation compliance a lot clearer<br />

for SMEs with limited resources<br />

around the world. The fact that, for the<br />

first time ever, a near-global standard is<br />

being established would suggest that this<br />

will be the norm for some time to come.<br />

We will of course need to wait a while<br />

until the system is fully operational<br />

before we can truly judge its success.<br />

However, compared to some previous<br />

initiatives to foil the fakers, the omens<br />

are good. Over the past decade or more, it<br />

The SerialTrac system won a PPMA award<br />

Domino Printing Sciences has come up with a complete compliance solution that meets all of the<br />

serialisation needs of contract packers and pharmaceutical companies. It is called SerialTrac<br />

measure, however complex and costly,<br />

was undermined almost as soon as it<br />

was rolled out.<br />

Take holograms, for example:<br />

expensive and complex to create but<br />

no obstacle to counterfeiters, in whose<br />

fat profits the on-cost of including a<br />

hologram on their fake product made<br />

only the smallest dent. Or RFID, with its<br />

potential to tag and track each item but<br />

which carried<br />

a cost and<br />

read failure<br />

rate at primary<br />

coding<br />

level which<br />

were simply<br />

unjustifiable.<br />

RFID has<br />

found its<br />

place in the<br />

serialisation<br />

landscape<br />

but it is at the<br />

secondary<br />

and tertiary<br />

packaging<br />

levels rather<br />

than at<br />

primary.<br />

There is no<br />

doubt that the costs of implementing<br />

serialisation are significant – coding<br />

equipment upgrades, enhanced<br />

maintenance regimes, new software<br />

development and rollout, operator<br />

training and, inevitably, reduced<br />

productivity initially. And it is still<br />

not clear how the ongoing costs of<br />

maintaining the system will be managed,<br />

although a shared model seems most<br />

likely currently.<br />

However, this model has a huge<br />

advantage over previous contenders in<br />

that it consists essentially of marking<br />

coded information onto each pack during<br />

primary<br />

packaging,<br />

which is<br />

essentially<br />

how the<br />

industry has<br />

operated<br />

for decades.<br />

The coding<br />

operation<br />

will remain<br />

broadly<br />

familiar<br />

and at line<br />

level, the key<br />

requirement is<br />

a serialisationcapable<br />

coder.<br />

Faced as<br />

they are with<br />

an extensive<br />

‘to do’ list, this fact is a real positive for<br />

serialisation project managers.<br />

The long lead-in time for FMD<br />

compliance (initially set at five years from<br />

the date of publication of the Directive in<br />

Standard solutions can make the path to compliance easier<br />

2011 but subsequently extended to eight)<br />

has brought a number of advantages and<br />

the EU is to be applauded for recognising<br />

that more time would be needed to<br />

successfully address the very complex<br />

challenge of serialisation. The extensions<br />

to the original deadline are beneficial in<br />

a number of ways including:<br />

Data storage: Serialisation will<br />

generate huge volumes of data, however<br />

storage technologies have advanced to<br />

such a degree that this is less of a concern<br />

than a few years ago.<br />

Vendor selection: It has become clear<br />

over the course of the past few years that<br />

there is a shortage of vendor capacity<br />

to manage serialisation projects. The<br />

extension of the deadline to 2019 increases<br />

the prospects of success markedly.<br />

PARTNERSHIPS ARE THE KEY<br />

Supplier partnerships: At Domino, we<br />

have been firmly of the opinion from the<br />

outset that no single supplier can provide<br />

a complete solution addressing all the<br />

core disciplines – which include code<br />

generation and management,<br />

code application and verification,<br />

pack handling, reject and data storage,<br />

management and reporting.<br />

The extended timeline has allowed<br />

detailed discussions to take place in the<br />

vendor community, with off-the-shelf<br />

serialisation solutions now emerging<br />

as a result.<br />

The latter is particularly beneficial<br />

for smaller producers: while the<br />

impact of serialisation should not<br />

be underestimated for any branch of<br />

the industry, small to medium-sized<br />

businesses are particularly hard hit.<br />

Typically these manufacturers do not<br />

have the infrastructure or resources<br />

readily available to create a bespoke<br />

solution or to integrate with an ERP<br />

system – yet they face exactly the same<br />

complexity challenges as operations ten<br />

times their size.<br />

The advent of standard solutions<br />

means that, for the small business owner<br />

in particular, the path to serialisation<br />

compliance just became a whole lot<br />

clearer.<br />

devised systems to<br />

meet FMD needs<br />

The Digiline Versa from<br />

serialisation and late<br />

colour which allows<br />

considerable stock reduction of<br />

pre-printed box versions – and<br />

significant savings potential to<br />

be realised.<br />

The company demonstrated an<br />

integrated comprehensive solution<br />

with a newly developed high speed<br />

four colour printer and integrated<br />

Unique Code Software at the<br />

FachPack exhibition in Germany.<br />

Also on show was the new label<br />

offline system which allows<br />

users to separate the serialisation<br />

and dispensing processes both<br />

physically and in time.<br />

“With Digiline Versa, it is now<br />

possible to print flat or even<br />

already-glued carton boxes<br />

with all relevant information for<br />

product declaration such as doses,<br />

warnings, ingredients logos and<br />

serialisation codes in one single<br />

pass, just-in-time and in colour,”<br />

explains Helmut Schneider,<br />

product group manager pharma<br />

& packaging solutions at<br />

Atlantic Zeiser.<br />

“In this way, the costs for<br />

logistics and warehousing can<br />

be minimised, particularly with<br />

lot sizes reducing constantly<br />

which results in significant savings<br />

potential, particularly with very<br />

valuable products that are only<br />

marketed in small quantities.”<br />

For this purpose, Digiline Versa<br />

is equipped with high quality inkjet<br />

technology for a pin sharp print<br />

result at a speed of 50 metres per<br />

minute and at a 600 dpi resolution.<br />

One system means processing<br />

companies no longer have to<br />

upgrade several packaging lines<br />

with serialisation equipment,<br />

thereby considerably facilitating<br />

such projects since existing<br />

validated plants can remain<br />

unchanged in accordance with<br />

European regulations.<br />

The ink used is lightfast and<br />

Serialising<br />

is in colour<br />

The Digiline<br />

Versa system<br />

combines<br />

serialisation and<br />

late stage<br />

customisation to<br />

deliver operating<br />

benefits<br />

resistant to water, alcohols and<br />

other solvents. With the scalable<br />

printing width, a diverse range of<br />

box formats can be processed,<br />

of up to 300mm in width.<br />

Furthermore, the Versa is also<br />

equipped with the powerful<br />

Unique Code Software that allows<br />

serialisation according to existing<br />

and future serialisation regulations<br />

without duplications and with<br />

process reliability.<br />

The integrated camera system,<br />

which verifies the print quality of<br />

the late stage customisation and<br />

serialisation elements, hands<br />

over the inspection result to the<br />

machine control which makes sure<br />

that only the correct products<br />

are delivered.<br />

Serialisation is not only<br />

about preventing counterfeit<br />

drugs but also process savings<br />

The Unique Code Software<br />

included in the package ensures<br />

that no duplicated serial numbers<br />

can be assigned or printed.<br />

At the same time, all coded serial<br />

numbers are permanently and<br />

securely stored in the database<br />

for later usage. Thus contract<br />

manufacturing organisations<br />

and pharmaceutical companies<br />

are able to fulfil extremely high<br />

requirements for product quality<br />

and reporting of production data.<br />

Furthermore, the Unique Code<br />

Software allows production<br />

orders to be distributed across<br />

several machines, interrupted,<br />

if necessary, and redistributed in<br />

a risk-free manner. This allows a<br />

highly flexible and efficient way<br />

of production planning.<br />

Therefore, says the company, the<br />

Versa system provides an efficient<br />

and safe serialisation solution<br />

that is free from duplicates and<br />

operator errors.<br />

Tablet damage<br />

is eliminated<br />

The gentle handling of tablets was essential for<br />

one Southern Ireland based tablet manufacturer<br />

When a Southern Ireland<br />

based tablet manufacturer<br />

wanted to expand its<br />

production facilities by<br />

conveying its products,<br />

Piab supplied its new piFLOW t, a vacuum<br />

conveying system specifically adapted for<br />

the gentle handling of fragile tablets.<br />

Vacuum conveying was already well<br />

used on site, with a number of Piab’s<br />

existing powder systems installed and<br />

these systems had been adapted to reduce<br />

the damage of tablets, but damage was<br />

still exceeding the quality control levels<br />

set at the site.<br />

PRODUCTION ISSUES ERASED<br />

“In discussion with the customer on<br />

their production issues with their current<br />

system, it became a clear choice to<br />

commission the recently released piFLOW t<br />

tablet conveyor,” says Callum Lister, Piab’s<br />

Raupack <strong>MU</strong> UK N-D and <strong>2016</strong>_<strong>MU</strong> Ireland product 31/10/<strong>2016</strong> sales 14:29 manager. Page 1<br />

There are three important elements of<br />

the piFLOW t conveyor which eliminates<br />

the damage of tablets. Firstly, any sharp<br />

edges on the conveyor are eliminated by<br />

using an inlet flat to guide the tablets into<br />

the conveyor body, instead. Secondly,<br />

the ‘soft’ start facility is employed which<br />

gently accelerates the tablets into the<br />

system and finally, the shape of the<br />

conveyor allows the tablets to gradually<br />

decelerate around the conveyor body.<br />

As a result of commissioning the<br />

conveyor, damage to the tablets was<br />

completely eliminated during the<br />

conveying process. Due to the high value<br />

nature of the product it was quickly<br />

deemed viable to roll the system out to<br />

existing lines, with the system now being<br />

specified as the new site standard.<br />

Two further vacuum conveyors have<br />

already been ordered.<br />

Comminutor; Quadro’s U5 and U5<br />

High Efficiency Comil, FlexSift S5 and<br />

H5 High Energy API Comil. It enables<br />

operators to alternate between multiple<br />

milling solutions in seconds, due to<br />

its special tri-clamp design. The head<br />

interchangeability this provides makes<br />

the equipment suitable for milling and/or<br />

wet material conditioning, as stand-alone<br />

operations or to complement lab-scale<br />

The Scalable Lab System utilises<br />

Smart-Detect, a special lab equipment<br />

appropriate speed range is fixed by<br />

recognising the head being installed –<br />

a critical parameter for ensuring<br />

best use of space, this was designed for the<br />

e-cigarette and vaping sector.<br />

In operation, it automatically orients<br />

and feeds the components of an e-cigarette<br />

refill bottle (bottles, droppers and caps)<br />

into the machine. It fills each bottle to the<br />

exact level, inserts a dropper, attaches and<br />

tightens the cap to the desired torque and<br />

then places the product onto a conveyor<br />

ready for the labelling process.<br />

Every aspect is checked, from the fill<br />

level, dropper and the tightness of the<br />

cap and any deficient product is rejected.<br />

Depending on the fluid viscosity, the<br />

production speed of this machine is<br />

up to 60 units a minute.<br />

Control mechanism is key<br />

According to Cap Coder managing director<br />

Ross Prior, the company created its<br />

automatic torque testing & report system<br />

to eliminate manual intervention and the<br />

control mechanism that is included, is key<br />

to achieving this. In operation, the new<br />

automatic torque testing system measures<br />

the applied torque or the un-doing torque<br />

on an extremely compact footprint.<br />

It features a rotary turret with<br />

8 or 10 stations and the turret<br />

indexes the carton from station to<br />

station. At the loading station, an<br />

operator waits for the machine to<br />

stop indexing. Subsequently, the<br />

operator crosses the light barrier<br />

to insert the product into the open<br />

carton and once the operator has<br />

retracted his/her hand from the<br />

light barrier, the machine indexes.<br />

A capacitive sensor verifies that a<br />

product has reached the bottom<br />

of the carton and if no product is<br />

stops and displays an error.<br />

have used them to pack products<br />

such as contact lenses, sachets,<br />

medical devices, corn pads, bottles<br />

and also blisters.<br />

Also available from the company<br />

are tamper evident labellers<br />

including track and trace as well<br />

as high speed tablet counting<br />

machines designed to handle a<br />

variety of tablets and capsules.<br />

“In the pharmaceutical and<br />

nutraceutical industry, counting<br />

and filling systems are a key part of<br />

We work on projects that<br />

deliver a host of features in a<br />

smaller footprint to customers<br />

the packaging lines,” says Rauch.<br />

“Cremer high speed tablet counting<br />

machines are able to fill almost<br />

all kinds of glass or plastic bottles,<br />

whether square or round.”<br />

The range of fillers and tablet<br />

or capsule counters starts with a<br />

single counter and ends with multihead<br />

counting systems. These high<br />

speed tablet counting machines<br />

can operate at speeds of up to 400<br />

bottles a minute subject to count<br />

and tablet or capsule dimensions.<br />

“The counters are easy to clean<br />

and work reliably, delivering 100%<br />

counting accuracy,” says Rauch.<br />

“Servo controlled vibration has<br />

allowed us to reduce the number of<br />

channels and increase throughput,<br />

while all product specific parameters<br />

can be saved in the machines recipe<br />

ensuring complete repeatability and<br />

minimising run in times.<br />

“These benefits set our counting<br />

machines, all of which are GMP<br />

and optionally 21CFR part 11<br />

compliant, apart from other<br />

counters in the industry,” he says.<br />

Adata matrix code<br />

is a vital weapon<br />

in the war against<br />

counterfeiters,<br />

underpinning<br />

traceability from<br />

manufacturer through to the<br />

pharmacy. However, while the<br />

code itself is hard to imitate,<br />

reading data matrix codes<br />

reliably at high speeds can<br />

be a challenge, especially<br />

for pack shapes with curved<br />

surfaces such as bottles,<br />

tubes, or vials.<br />

This is especially<br />

challenging in the<br />

pharmaceuticals market<br />

as curved pack shapes are<br />

common. An unreliable<br />

read rate could compromise<br />

security at any point in the<br />

production and distribution<br />

process while at the same<br />

time, stopping a line to adjust<br />

the code reading systems for<br />

difficult-to-read products leads<br />

to costly downtime.<br />

Eliminating the possibility<br />

of misreads is vital – counterfeit<br />

pharmaceuticals cause major<br />

financial losses, can pose<br />

health risks, and undermine<br />

patients’ trust. Furthermore,<br />

the pharmaceuticals industry<br />

is committed to implementing<br />

the Falsified Medicines<br />

Directive with the aims of<br />

guaranteeing traceability and<br />

transparency in the supply<br />

chain by 2018.<br />

To meet customer needs in<br />

this area, Sick teamed up with<br />

the German manufacturer of<br />

industrial image processing<br />

systems i-mation to develop<br />

the ID Module 360. This is<br />

a high speed solution for<br />

curved containers using<br />

Sick’s Lector620 high speed<br />

image-based code reader.<br />

Small and space saving<br />

with a high capacity for data,<br />

the data matrix code has<br />

become a mainstay of the<br />

anti-counterfeiting armoury:<br />

it supports the unique<br />

identification and serialisation<br />

of products and encrypts<br />

numbers, serial and batch<br />

numbers, quantity and weight<br />

data, and the expiry date in<br />

In operation, two image-based Sick Lector620 high speed code readers can be positioned above a conveyor<br />

Curvy codes<br />

need reading<br />

Eliminating the possibility of any coding misreads on<br />

curved pharmaceutical packs has been achieved<br />

just a single code.<br />

“Data matrix codes are<br />

easy to attach and read if they<br />

are used on cartons, boxes,<br />

and angled packaging,”<br />

explains Ralf Sinnerbrink, the<br />

head of customer projects at<br />

i-mation. “However, for round<br />

packaging like bottles, tubes,<br />

or vials, this is not the case.<br />

“Depending on which way<br />

the product rotates while it is<br />

being read, the code on curved<br />

containers is often impossible<br />

to identify.<br />

“With the old system,<br />

products had to be separated<br />

on the conveying line so that<br />

the labels were not obscured,”<br />

he continues. The cameras<br />

had to be mechanically<br />

adjusted to the diameter of<br />

each product to make sure<br />

they generated sharp images.<br />

The camera can achieve optimum<br />

alignment as during wrapping, the<br />

product is rotated by at least 360deg<br />

The ID Module 360 is<br />

a simple, compact and<br />

safe system for reading all<br />

conventional 1D and 2D codes<br />

– including data matrix codes<br />

– reliably on curved containers<br />

at high speeds without having<br />

to stop and adjust the system<br />

at each product change.<br />

In operation, one or two<br />

image-based Sick Lector620<br />

high speed code readers are<br />

integrated into the system and<br />

positioned above a conveyor<br />

belt. The code readers can<br />

be adjusted in accordance<br />

with the product’s individual<br />

diameter.<br />

The Lector620 can detect<br />

codes at intervals of between

it offers the flexibility needed<br />

to identify products of various<br />

sizes. With its built-in red<br />

and blue illumination, the<br />

Lector620 can also illuminate<br />

its reading field regardless of<br />

the contrast, so codes of the<br />

poorest quality can still be<br />

read reliably.<br />

“Depending on the code<br />

or cell size of the data matrix<br />

code, you need just one imagebased<br />

code reader for products<br />

with a diameter up to 50mm<br />

and two readers for products<br />

up to 100mm,” explains<br />

Schubert provides<br />

a single machine<br />

to offer flexibility<br />

Schubert-Pharma has<br />

combined thermoforming<br />

and cartoning on a<br />

single TLM system for its<br />

customer IDT Biologika in<br />

a way that is both space-saving and<br />

efficient. Thanks to the machines<br />

capability of handling different types<br />

of products on the one system, the<br />

contract packer of pharmaceutical<br />

products has achieved highly<br />

efficient capacity utilisation.<br />

IDT Biologika specialises in the<br />

production, filling and packing of<br />

vaccines and biologics. The service<br />

company covers all development,<br />

production and quality steps from<br />

active ingredients in bulk form<br />

through sterile filling and the<br />

packing processes and onto the<br />

cooling chains.<br />

The increasing complexity of<br />

packaging solutions, changing<br />

customer ordering behaviour,<br />

as well as the trend towards<br />

smaller batch sizes has posed<br />

new challenges to its production<br />

technology.<br />

The packaging applications<br />

at IDT includes cartoning vials<br />

of various sizes, numbers and<br />

configurations, with or without<br />

partitions, as well as blistered<br />

syringes and combination packs<br />

of syringes and vials, which are<br />

combined into kits.<br />

“The decisive factor for Schubert-<br />

Pharma was its ability to realise<br />

the required processing operations<br />

within a single line,” says Raimund<br />

Merkel from IDT parent company<br />

Klocke Holding. “Other suppliers<br />

could not offer a system concept in<br />

which all the necessary functionality<br />

was available in one machine from<br />

one manufacturer and, since IDT is<br />

a contract packer, more and more<br />

formats are continuously added to<br />

the required production portfolio.”<br />

In spite of the complexity and the<br />

many applications and formats that<br />

are required, the machine is very<br />

compact. When packing the latest<br />

medical devices, the thermoform<br />

trays are first produced in<br />

Schubert’s thermoforming module<br />

Delivering a<br />

combination<br />

All steps from<br />

forming trays<br />

through product<br />

feeding and<br />

grouping to<br />

cartoning takes<br />

place on the<br />

compact system<br />

where a mother tray is formed with<br />

a defined number of individual<br />

trays which are only separated later<br />

in the process.<br />

When product feeding, the<br />

grouping processes of the products<br />

to be packed are already carried<br />

out on transport robots, called<br />

Transmoduls, using F4 picker<br />

robots. A vision scanner positioned<br />

above the product belt transmits<br />

the position and number of the<br />

products of the delivered trays to<br />

these F4 picker robots.<br />

These then pick up the individual<br />

products and place them in the<br />

thermoform trays. Subsequently,<br />

the trays are mechanically<br />

separated and the product is<br />

loaded into a top-load carton.<br />

The vials are conveyed to the<br />

labeller in a standing position<br />

either by means of a turntable or<br />

a belt and then transferred to the<br />

product belt. This belt is positioned<br />

in the working area of the F4 picker<br />

robots, so the vials are pre-grouped<br />

by the same robots, which also<br />

process the medical devices.<br />

System control is handled by<br />

Schubert’s own VMS packaging<br />

machine control system.<br />

Bosch has devised<br />

a complete holistic<br />

answer to pharma<br />

serialisation needs<br />

In the wake of current and<br />

pending serialisation laws,<br />

pharmaceutical producers<br />

worldwide face a double<br />

challenge: mass-serialising<br />

packed products that conform to<br />

different national standards while<br />

also ensuring the integration<br />

of all processes into their line<br />

infrastructure and company IT.<br />

Based on its experience, Bosch<br />

Packaging Technology is now<br />

offering a scalable machine and<br />

software concept that ensures<br />

both comprehensive serialisation<br />

and data management to meet<br />

these particular needs.<br />

Apart from printing data matrix<br />

codes onto folding cartons,<br />

drug producers and contract<br />

packers must ensure that all their<br />

serialisation processes are aligned<br />

across their facilities – from serial<br />

number generation, allocation<br />

and storage to the integration of<br />

control software. To this end, Bosch<br />

has developed the CPI software,<br />

which can be easily integrated into<br />

existing IT infrastructures.<br />

industry experience<br />

The company drew on its<br />

extensive experience from the<br />

automotive sector to develop the<br />

solution, having tried and tested<br />

automation and connectivity of<br />

machines, processes and IT for<br />

years. Combined with Bosch’s CPS<br />

system for Track & Trace, customers<br />

receive a complete solution for<br />

their serialisation requirements in<br />

all regions and also on all facility<br />

levels, says the company.<br />

On the application level (level 1),<br />

the modular CPS serialises up to<br />

400 folded cartons per minute.<br />

Its camera system automatically<br />

verifies the printed tracking data<br />

before a security seal is applied<br />

by the tamper evident labeller.<br />

The modules can be operated via<br />

a central user interface, and the<br />

data can be documented (level 2).<br />

Serialising<br />

is holistic<br />

The 2D data<br />

matrix code<br />

contains a<br />

randomised<br />

serial number,<br />

batch number<br />

and expiry date,<br />

as well as further<br />

data, if required<br />

The CPI software integrates the<br />

connection between the physical<br />

machine level and the control<br />

software across the company’s IT.<br />

Consequently, manufacturers<br />

can control operating condition and<br />

data at any time (level 3). From this<br />

level onwards, the CPI solution for<br />

Track & Trace ensures that the entire<br />

production environment or several<br />

sites are depicted (level 4). Moreover,<br />

an interface secures data transfer,<br />

for instance to the SecurPharm<br />

database or to the customer (level 5).<br />

By connecting data from several<br />

lines, the CPI solution ensures all<br />

relevant data is available to the<br />

The scalable machine and<br />

concept ensures serialisation<br />

and also data management<br />

entire network, and all results are<br />

recorded in the audit trail. Data sets<br />

are then bundled with production<br />

results according to aggregation<br />

specifications, and sent back to<br />

the CPI software.<br />

From here, they can be<br />

transferred to regulatory or<br />

producer-owned databases.<br />

Whether the serial numbers are<br />

allocated centrally, generated<br />

by the company or provided by<br />

clients, the CPI solution can be<br />

flexibly adapted to all scenarios<br />

and adds to the flexibility of drug<br />

manufacturers’ process cycle.<br />

Moreover, says Bosch, it allows<br />

them to connect single components,<br />

third party machines, packaging<br />

lines and entire factories with each<br />

other, providing companies with<br />

a wealth of options to best meet<br />

current guidelines.<br />

and fruit juice sectors. Legible,<br />

abrasion resistant and washable,<br />

the new MW470 ink can be<br />

used to code non-returnable and<br />

returnable dark glass bottles.<br />

Widely used by major brewers<br />

in South America, Africa and<br />

brewers in Europe and North<br />

America, the opacity of Markem-<br />

Imaje’s MW470 ink delivers the<br />

legibility of codes printed on<br />

amber and coloured glass<br />

bottles. The white ink blends<br />

harmoniously with the bottle<br />

decor, unlike the blue and yellow<br />

inks that are traditionally used.<br />

The ink adheres perfectly<br />

to glass but can be removed<br />

easily in washers using low<br />

soda concentrations, says<br />

the company. For drinks<br />

manufacturers this allows<br />

savings to be made on not only<br />

soda use but also on wastewater<br />

It is resistant to pasteurisation<br />

and can also be used to code<br />

returnable bottles that have<br />

undergone scratch prevention<br />

treatments.<br />

innovation introduced by<br />

Meech International. Designed<br />

to meet the greater demands<br />

of the IML sector, the 994CG<br />

is a miniature generator with<br />

four 20kV outlets, making it an<br />

extremely powerful option.<br />

“The global IML market<br />

looks set to thrive over the<br />

coming years, with a reduction<br />

in labelling costs being a<br />

major contributor to this<br />

projected growth,” says David<br />

Rogers, technical director at<br />

“The IML procedure eliminates<br />

the need for separate postdecoration<br />

which leads to a<br />

reduction in additional labour<br />

and raw material costs.”<br />

As customer feedback<br />

indicates that 24V DC power<br />

is becoming the preferred<br />

supply voltage for ancillary<br />

equipment on machinery,<br />

Meech has developed an IML<br />

end of a robot arm removes all<br />

the issues experienced when<br />

using remote static generation.<br />

“With robot installations,<br />

space is limited and weight<br />

needs to be minimal to<br />

Coding rates double at<br />

aerosol production site<br />

The reliability,<br />

flexibility<br />

and efficiency<br />

of two Linx 8900<br />

CIJ (continuous<br />

ink jet) printers<br />

installed at aerosol<br />

manufacturer and<br />

filler LMA Services<br />

has been a key<br />

factor in allowing<br />

the company to<br />

increase the number<br />

of hours it operates<br />

its production<br />

lines. Rates have<br />

gone from eight<br />

to 16 hours per<br />

day following<br />

the installation<br />

which gives it the<br />

opportunity to take<br />

on more business.<br />

LMA was looking<br />

to replace its<br />

previous coding<br />

equipment with a<br />

reliable, high quality and easy<br />

to operate coder.<br />

Two key requirements were the<br />

ability to print onto the bottom<br />

of aluminium and steel aerosol<br />

cans, and to produce up to<br />

three lines of code.<br />

Atwell - <strong>MU</strong> N-D <strong>2016</strong>_BMH 23/09/<strong>2016</strong> 12:37 Page 1<br />

LMA prints three line codes on the bottom of aerosol cans<br />

As well as meeting these<br />

criteria, the Linx 8900 offers a<br />

number of additional benefits.<br />

In particular, the coder’s ease<br />

of set-up and operation –<br />

similar to using a mobile phone<br />

or tablet – means operators<br />

need little training to<br />

get the most out of it.<br />

This has given them<br />

more time to focus on<br />

setting up the lines<br />

and ensuring they are<br />

running efficiently.<br />

Fast code changes<br />

are also an important<br />

advantage for LMA,<br />

which as well as its<br />

own brands carries<br />

out a great deal of<br />

contract filling.<br />

The machines use<br />

the quick-drying,<br />

all purpose 1240 ink<br />

which is ideal for fast<br />

lines and resistant to<br />

removal by chemicals.<br />

“Our Linx printers<br />

are cleaner and more<br />

intuitive, there is no<br />

more mess on the<br />

line, and downtime<br />

has been reduced,<br />

as we don’t have to<br />

mop up the mess afterwards,”<br />

dusty environments<br />

Balluff’s light array with separate<br />

amplifier offers high precision<br />

object detection in the tightest<br />

of spaces and also in dusty<br />

production environments.<br />

Optical window sensors are<br />

typically used for reliable detection<br />

and exact counting of fast-flying<br />

packaging processes. However,<br />

if the installation space is<br />

particularly small or if difficult<br />

working conditions arise, such as<br />

uncontrollable dust, solving this<br />

issue can become a challenge.<br />

The remedy, says Balluff, is<br />

now here in the form of the BOH<br />

AI from the BAE MICROmote<br />

family with separate amplifier.<br />

They bring a high level of optical<br />

precision to the smallest of<br />

robot uptime through fast data<br />

access and problem resolution.<br />

It is the latest in a series of<br />

measures from the company<br />

to help address the perceived<br />

complexity of operating and<br />

maintaining robots.<br />

Delivered via ABB’s single,<br />

intuitive interface called<br />

MyRobot, Connected Services<br />

will make actionable data<br />

immediately available to<br />

plant engineers, maintenance<br />

staff and managing directors<br />

via smart devices such<br />

as laptops, tablets and<br />

smartphones.<br />

Connected Services is<br />

based on ABB’s Internet of<br />

Things, Services and People<br />

approach, where device-level<br />

data is delivered to the right<br />

people who can decide which<br />

services to deploy to ensure<br />

that optimum performance is<br />

maintained at all times.<br />

Comprising four solutions<br />

called Condition Monitoring<br />

and Diagnostics, Backup<br />

Resource offers Backup Management<br />

and Fleet Assessment,<br />

Connected Services provides<br />

UK manufacturers with<br />

the tools to optimise their<br />

operations and boost<br />

their productivity within<br />

an increasingly digital<br />

landscape, says ABB.<br />

This resource is available<br />

via ABB’s RobotCare Service<br />

Agreements.<br />

Through Condition<br />

Monitoring and Diagnostics,<br />

ABB robots can be accurately<br />

monitored at all times<br />

regardless of location<br />

in order to proactively<br />

maintain performance.<br />

Rather than responding to<br />

breakdowns once they’ve<br />

occurred, technical issues<br />

can be resolved at the earliest<br />

indication of problems<br />

through alarm notifications<br />

sent by e-mail or SMS.<br />

As well as immediate<br />

critical alarm notifications,<br />

Condition Monitoring<br />

includes a system snapshot<br />

which enables better service<br />

preparation for on-site calls<br />

and technical support, too.<br />

Many UK companies apply<br />

fleet management through<br />

GPS to monitor vehicles and<br />

their drivers distributing<br />

goods or services across<br />

the country. The Fleet<br />

Assessment feature of the<br />

service applies this logic<br />

to robots on the shop floor.<br />

Through identifying the<br />

hardest working robots in a<br />

company and benchmarking<br />

them against ABB’s entire<br />

population of connected<br />

robots, performance can<br />

be optimised and services<br />

applied to extend the lifetime<br />

Components<br />

Food logistics system ensures<br />

that controller and robot talk<br />

Acollaboration between<br />

motion control and<br />

robotics specialists<br />

Yaskawa and a leading<br />

intralogistics and packaging<br />

company has resulted in the<br />

development of an automatic<br />

robot-based palletising cell<br />

which takes robotics handling<br />

to new levels.<br />

The food logistics system<br />

developed by MPS Food<br />

Logistics Systems based in the<br />

Netherlands features a Profinet<br />

interface which enables the<br />

Motoman handling robotic<br />

system from Yaskawa to be<br />

programmed and operated<br />

via a Siemens TIA (totally<br />

integrated automation) portal.<br />

MPS received an enquiry<br />

from a major meat processing<br />

company in Germany who<br />

were looking for a robotic cell<br />

for palletising packed meats<br />

at the end of a packaging<br />

line which included the key<br />

challenge of integrating the<br />

robot in the specified PLC<br />

environment.<br />

robot is controlled<br />

Specifically, the application<br />

required that the robot should<br />

be able to be programmed<br />

and controlled directly via the<br />

Siemens TIA portal without<br />

having to pass through the<br />

robot controller first.<br />

Traditionally, robot and<br />

machine controllers had to<br />

be programmed, operated<br />

and serviced separately<br />

from one another and while<br />

this conventional interplay<br />

between robots and machines<br />

is still possible, it has largely<br />

become obsolete thanks to<br />

new technical developments.<br />

An example of this<br />

is MotoLogix, a high<br />

performance alternative<br />

developed by Yaskawa.<br />

MotoLogix is a quick and easy<br />

way for Motoman robots to be<br />

programmed and controlled<br />

via the PLC in the current<br />

IEC-61131 environment.<br />

The automatic robot-based palletising cell was designed for a meat processor<br />

At present, as well as Profinet,<br />

the Ethernet/IP and Powerlink<br />

platforms are also approved<br />

for Siemens environments.<br />

“You don’t need an<br />

advanced knowledge of<br />

robotics,” says Erik van den<br />

Beld, engineering manager at<br />

MPS, explaining one of the key<br />

advantages and adding,<br />

“This makes the commissioning<br />

stage more effective.”<br />

The integration in the PLC<br />

means that all of the genuine<br />

advantages of the robot<br />

controller are preserved.<br />

The robot controller calculates<br />

the movement kinematics,<br />

guarantees high quality<br />

movement and therefore<br />

Yaskawa’s expertise in the<br />

precise movement of the<br />

manipulators remains assured.<br />

integration was easy<br />

However, the ease with<br />

which the robot controller<br />

can be integrated in the PLC<br />

doesn’t just apply to complex<br />

production systems.<br />

The choice of MotoLogix<br />

means that the user only needs<br />

a knowledge of PLCs to control<br />

robots. This means it is no<br />

longer necessary to find staff<br />

that are trained in robotics or<br />

to spend money on retraining<br />

existing staff.<br />

Against this backdrop, the<br />

MPS engineers who worked<br />

with Erik van den Beld chose<br />

a powerful and versatile model<br />

from the Yaskawa MH series of<br />

robots – the Motoman MH225<br />

– which covers applications<br />

weighing up to 225 kg. Despite<br />

its considerable load-bearing<br />

capacity and wide range of<br />

2,702 mm, this option has a<br />

very modest footprint, thanks<br />

to a compact, slim body which<br />

is only 625mm wide.<br />

increase productivity<br />

A newly developed vibration<br />

control system exploits the<br />

increased axial speed and<br />

inherent rigidity of the gears<br />

and enables acceleration with<br />

short movements.<br />

The reduced cycle times also<br />

increase productivity.<br />

The handling robot operates<br />

with the current Motoman DX<br />

200 generation of controllers,<br />

which support MotoLogix<br />

while the integrated safety<br />

controller makes this high<br />

performance controller a<br />

category 3 functional safety<br />

unit (FSU). With up to 32<br />

definable safety zones and<br />

16 possible tools, it facilitates<br />

smaller work areas and<br />

optimum utilisation of<br />

available production space.<br />

By using the MotoLogix<br />

interface generation with its<br />

Profinet capability, MPS has<br />

enabled a Motoman MH225<br />

palletising robot from Yaskawa<br />

to be integrated directly<br />

in to a Siemens automation<br />

environment. The benefits<br />

of two high performance<br />

systems are thus combined;<br />

the convenient programming<br />

of robots directly via the<br />

programmable logic controller<br />

and the high level of<br />

precision offered by the<br />

DX200 robot controller.<br />

Regulations<br />

Working in a<br />

smarter world<br />

Paul Neil Laidler Dyson<br />

Business director Line Manager for - Machinery saftey Safety At TÜV Tüv SÜD Süd Product Service service<br />

Widely trailed as the fourth industrial revolution, Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things adds a new<br />

dimension of complexity in terms of machinery safety challenges which machinery users must consider<br />

Industry 4.0 includes cyberphysical<br />

systems, the<br />

Internet of Things (IoT) and<br />

cloud computing – a system of<br />

collaborating computational<br />

elements that include<br />

mechanical and electrical<br />

elements that are connected<br />

in a smart cloud and are<br />

able to communicate in real<br />

time. It will enable smart<br />

factories to digitise processes<br />

that improve both efficiency<br />

and quality, while reducing<br />

manufacturing costs. They<br />

will support highly flexible,<br />

automated ‘plug and produce’<br />

manufacturing, taking just-intime<br />

to a new level.<br />

The connected world of<br />

Industry 4.0’s smart factories<br />

adds a new dimension<br />

of complexity in terms of<br />

machinery safety challenges<br />

for companies. IoT connects<br />

people and machines,<br />

enabling bi-directional flow<br />

of information and real-time<br />

decisions. Its diffusion is<br />

now accelerating with the<br />

reduction in size and price<br />

of the sensors, and with the<br />

need for the exchange of large<br />

amounts of data.<br />

TODAY’S SCENARIO<br />

In today’s static machinery<br />

environment, the configuration<br />

of machines and machine<br />

modules in the production<br />

line is completely known<br />

at the starting point of the<br />

system design. However, if<br />

substantial changes are made,<br />

a new conformity assessment<br />

may be required.<br />

It is an employer’s<br />

responsibility to ensure that<br />

all machinery meets the<br />

requirements of the Machinery<br />

Directive and Provision<br />

and Use of Work Equipment<br />

Regulations (PUWER),<br />

of which risk assessments<br />

are an essential ingredient.<br />

Therefore, if a machine<br />

has a substantial change<br />

made, a full CE marking and<br />

assessment must be completed<br />

before it can be returned to<br />

service. And any configuration<br />

change in the production line<br />

requires re-certification of the<br />

whole facility.<br />

However, the dynamic<br />

approach of Industry 4.0’s<br />

cyber-physical systems means<br />

that with a simple press of a<br />

button, easily configurable<br />

machinery and production<br />

lines can be instantly<br />

changed. As it is the original<br />

configuration that is risk<br />

assessed, such instant updates<br />

to machinery means that<br />

the traditional, time-hungry<br />

approach of ‘risk assessment<br />

as you make changes’ will<br />

become obsolete.<br />

risk assessment<br />

The risk assessment process<br />

therefore needs to be modified<br />

to meet the demands of the<br />

more dynamic Industry 4.0<br />

approach. This would mean<br />

that all possible configurations<br />

of machines and machine<br />

modules would be dynamically<br />

validated during the change<br />

of the production line. Each<br />

new configuration would<br />

be assessed in real time,<br />

based on digital models of<br />

the real behaviour of each<br />

configuration, which would<br />

be based upon the machinery<br />

manufacturer’s correct (and<br />

trusted) data about the Cyber<br />

Physical System. The result<br />

would be a rapidly issued<br />

digital compliance certificate.<br />

Machinery safety in our<br />

The introduction of a modular<br />

certification approach is the<br />

answer to Industry 4.0 challenges<br />

current Industry 3.0 world<br />

therefore looks like this:<br />

• Risk assessment (ISO 12100)<br />

• Safety concept assessment<br />

(SRECS)<br />

• Development of safety<br />

functions acc. to IEC<br />

60204-1 and ISO 13849 and<br />

for complex safety subsystem<br />

acc. to IEC 61508<br />

• Safety Assessment of<br />

machinery safety of controlrelated<br />

measures based<br />

on IEC 62061 and machine<br />

directive 2006/42/EG.<br />

Whereas machinery safety<br />

in an Industry 4.0 world<br />

would look like this:<br />

• Modified Risk assessment<br />

(ISO 12100) in case of<br />

human-machine interaction<br />

• Safety concept assessment<br />

(SRECS)<br />

• Development of safety<br />

functions acc. to IEC<br />

60204-1 and ISO 13849 and<br />

for complex safety subsystem<br />

acc. to IEC 61508<br />

• Safety Assessment of<br />

machinery safety of<br />

control-related measures<br />

based on IEC 62061<br />

and machine directive<br />

2006/42/EG.<br />

Industry 4.0 takes safety<br />

assessments into four separate<br />

domains – the smart factory<br />

(cyber-physical production<br />

systems), vertical integration<br />

(automation), horizontal<br />

integration (with other<br />

systems outside the main<br />

production environment) and<br />

human-machine integration.<br />

certification<br />

The introduction of a modular<br />

certification approach is<br />

therefore the answer, as this<br />

will enable machinery safety<br />

practice to keep pace with<br />

technological change by<br />

reducing complexity based<br />

on customer-specific modular<br />

approaches.<br />

This will create a circle of<br />

continuous learning, where<br />

95% of validation runs in<br />

real time, with modular<br />

certification software running<br />

as a kind of assistant system<br />

and new questions and<br />

problems being solved by<br />

human experts. The good<br />

news is that despite these<br />

incredible technological<br />

advances being just around<br />

the corner for the machinery<br />

industry, it still can’t be<br />

achieved entirely without<br />

human interaction.<br />
