Conveyor<br />

Andrew Mint<br />

CEO PPMA GROUP OF ASSOCIATIONS<br />

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

We all live in hectic times and it has certainly been a<br />

busy period at the PPMA with our new Machine Vision<br />

Conference (MVC) and the global exhibition interpack<br />

taking place within a week of each other recently.<br />

The MVC held at Milton Keynes at the end of April was the<br />

first show of this kind in the UK and is a new initiative from our<br />

UK Industrial Vision Association. With machine vision systems<br />

now an integral part of many manufacturing operations, and the<br />

fact that they are becoming ever more advanced, we felt it was<br />

a great time to launch this educational event. It delivered over<br />

50 seminars and gathered the world’s top vision companies at<br />

the 60-stand-strong accompanying exhibition. With keynote<br />

lectures from Ocado and Dyson, there was something for every<br />

one of the visitors, which numbered nearly 300. If you missed<br />

the event, you can read about the highlights later in the issue,<br />

but we would also like to welcome you in person next time.<br />

Government backing for<br />

UK manufacturers needs to be<br />

at European levels post Brexit<br />

Just a few days after MVC, interpack took place in Düsseldorf,<br />

Germany. As many of you know, this is a monster of an exhibition,<br />

and something Germany has excelled at in many industry areas<br />

via its Messe network. These mega-shows are well run and well<br />

attended, and indeed we had our own PPMA stand this year, and<br />

many of our member companies also exhibited.<br />

These exhibitions do benefit from the fully integrated exhibition<br />

centres and transport links in key cities, as well as central<br />

government support. Indeed, as we try to make sense of the<br />

world post Brexit, and there will be an even greater need for the<br />

UK to enhance its international trade offerings, I hope we can all<br />

rally together and send strong messages to our own Government<br />

leaders about supporting manufacturing industries.<br />

Confectionery is also a key focus in this issue, and, like<br />

soft drinks, this sector does and will continue to come under<br />

pressure from legislation and negative mass media. I would<br />

argue that it will be vital that as an industry, we can adapt to<br />

this ever-changing market, and as a society try to ensure we get<br />

the right balance between a healthy lifestyle while still having<br />

free choice as consumers.<br />

Finally, may I take the opportunity to wish you a pleasant<br />

summer period where hopefully we see sunshine and political<br />

stability in equal measure!<br />

Talented electrical<br />

engineer wins best<br />

apprentice award<br />

Packaging Automation has<br />

received recognition for its<br />

long-established apprenticeship<br />

scheme as its electrical<br />

engineer James Sydenham<br />

won Best Apprentice in<br />

Cheshire and Warrington<br />

at the High Sherriff’s Awards<br />

for Enterprise.<br />

The company has trained<br />

more than 100 apprentices since<br />

the scheme began 30 years ago<br />

with former apprentices now<br />

holding director, management<br />

and team leader roles in the<br />

business today.<br />

“It feels amazing to win,<br />

I never thought four years<br />

ago when I joined that I would<br />

be shortlisted for an award like<br />

this, never mind to win,” said<br />

James at the awards ceremony.<br />

The first machine vision<br />

event in UK for many<br />

years deemed a success<br />

Nearly 300 people<br />

visited the UKIVA’s first<br />

ever machine vision<br />

conference and exhibition in<br />

Milton Keynes in April.<br />

It was opened by Iain Stewart,<br />

MP for Milton Keynes South<br />

who talked about the UK being<br />

a growing centre of excellence<br />

for vision technology.<br />

The event attracted exhibitors<br />

and presenters from the world’s<br />

leading vision companies as<br />

well as keynote speakers from<br />

Dyson and Ocado. Visitors could<br />

choose between 58 seminar<br />

topics during the day or visit<br />

one of the 60 stands.<br />

On the day, seminar theatres<br />

were themed under seven topics:<br />

3D vision, camera technology,<br />

optics and illumination,<br />

systems and applications,<br />

software and embedded<br />

vision, understanding vision<br />

technology and also<br />

vision innovation.<br />

UKIVA chairman Paul<br />

Wilson was delighted with the<br />

Dyson’s Dr Mike Aldred at the event<br />

success of the event, as was<br />

organising committee member<br />

Alan Anderson from ClearView<br />

Imaging. “This has been 18<br />

months in the planning for<br />

what is the first UK-wide<br />

independent vision show for<br />

the last ten years,” he told<br />

<strong>Machinery</strong> <strong>Update</strong>.<br />

“What is most pleasing is<br />

that we have pulled the global<br />

vision market place together.”<br />

New apprenticeship<br />

body should retain<br />

all qualifications<br />

As the Department for Education<br />

transfers responsibility for<br />

apprenticeships to the new<br />

Institute for Apprenticeships,<br />

engineering employers are urging<br />

the body to keep recognised<br />

qualifications as a core feature of<br />

apprenticeship standards.<br />

“Engineering employers have<br />

argued and won the case for<br />

our industry to have continuous<br />

assessment and qualifications<br />

in our apprenticeships and we<br />

must not lose this recognition as<br />

responsibility transfers,” says chief<br />

executive of Semta Ann Watson.<br />

To support the employers’ case,<br />

Semta commissioned research<br />

Machine Vision Conference<br />

Working out the<br />

best illumination<br />

for vision projects<br />

“Being clever with light helps to<br />

make cameras more accurate,”<br />

said Simon Hickman of Multipix<br />

Imaging during his speech called<br />

Illumination techniques: ever<br />

wondered why so many different<br />

illumination options exist?<br />

“The importance of<br />

illumination is almost always<br />

under-estimated in any new<br />

machine vision application,”<br />

he said and advised everyone to<br />

always think about the lighting<br />

conditions early on in any project.<br />

Hickman ran through many<br />

of the classic techniques of<br />

illumination for objects to be<br />

examined as well as talking about<br />

why selecting the correct coloured<br />

lighting is important for any<br />

inspection task. He stressed how<br />

using colour helps to enhance the<br />

contrast in any application.<br />

His talk took place in the<br />

Understanding Vision Technology<br />

theatre designed for beginners.<br />

Using colour enhances the contrast<br />

Speaking about vision<br />

across all capabilities<br />

Visitors to the first<br />

UKIVA Machine<br />

Vision Conference and<br />

Exhibition could listen to<br />

58 seminar topics covering<br />

a range of technology from<br />

beginner to expert.<br />

Dr Mike Aldred manages the<br />

robotics team on the Dyson<br />

360 Eye robot vacuum cleaner<br />

and he shared some of the<br />

lessons his team has learned<br />

while tackling this cuttingedge,<br />

vision-based system<br />

with robots. “Engineers<br />

want to be challenged with<br />

difficult products,” he said.<br />

“If you do easy or boring,<br />

you will ultimately lose your<br />

best engineers.”<br />

Bringing vision to the<br />

consumer in this project<br />

took 15 years of work ranging<br />

from initial investigations<br />

to product development<br />

that focused on the<br />

customer experience and<br />

then simulation. However,<br />

he believes that although<br />

simulation is an important<br />

aspect of the design phase,<br />

subsequent trialling is<br />

equally important to prove<br />

that results are correct.<br />

In eight years, the company<br />

The wide-ranging seminar programme was well-attended throughout the day<br />

undertook 75,000 home trials<br />

and this work continues<br />

since the product launch.<br />

“Vision is the key enabler<br />

in our vacuum cleaner and<br />

ultimately, it will allow us to<br />

achieve more complex tasks<br />

such as dusting,” he said.<br />

He warned attendees about<br />

not making a common mistake<br />

often seen in NPD projects.<br />

“Remember that it is not<br />

always necessary to use the<br />

latest technology to achieve<br />

the results you need.”<br />

Meanwhile, Dr Graham<br />

Deacon, robotics research<br />

team leader at Ocado<br />

Technology opened the<br />

afternoon session by talking<br />

about how the on-line grocer<br />

uses 3D cameras at its sites<br />

where it handles 48,000 SKUs,<br />

picks between 2- 6 million<br />

items every day and fulfils<br />

270,000 orders per week.<br />

Sixty global leaders in machine vision technology came to<br />

the new event to show latest developments to the visitors<br />

The very latest developments<br />

in machine vision technology<br />

were exhibited by sixty<br />

companies at the one-day event.<br />

Talking about the day, Mark<br />

Williamson, chairman of<br />

the PPMA Group felt that the<br />

breadth of technology on show<br />

and the range of topics covered<br />

in the seminar programme<br />

made for an impressive first<br />

event. “It is good to have an<br />

industry-led vision event back<br />

in the UK,” he said.<br />

Many of the other exhibitors<br />

Visitors and exhibitors were pleased with the format of the first UKIVA event<br />

concurred. Ian Alderton from<br />

Alrad Imaging felt the day’s<br />

format worked well with<br />

some people more interested<br />

in the exhibition stands and<br />

others wanting to attend<br />

the seminars, while Lynne<br />

Potter from Multipix also felt<br />

it was a very good event.<br />

Chris Brown from FLIR<br />

thought it was one of the best<br />

shows he had been to in the<br />

last twelve months. “People<br />

have come with a need, a<br />

want and a budget,” he told<br />

<strong>Machinery</strong> <strong>Update</strong>.<br />

Sony’s sales manager for<br />

Europe Neil Potts was also<br />

delighted with the new people<br />

he had met during the day.<br />

“Seeing end users is perfect for<br />

us and we will definitely get<br />

business from the day,” he said.

Vertical form, fill and seal<br />

machine for fresh produce<br />

Ulma Packaging is<br />

launching ultrasonic<br />

vertical sealing<br />

equipment which can help<br />

boost productivity while also<br />

reducing waste in the fresh<br />

produce sector.<br />

The fresh produce sector<br />

is being targeted with the<br />

VTI 600 and VTC 800 ultrasonic<br />

vertical form, fill and seal<br />

(VFFS) machines, developed<br />

to provide customers with<br />

continuous packing at high<br />

production speeds.<br />

Magnetic separators remove the<br />

particles from various powders<br />

Aetna MU M-J <strong>2017</strong> Junior Page V3.qxp_MU 24/04/<strong>2017</strong> 21:35 Page 1<br />

Anew generation of<br />

magnetic separators<br />

used to remove metal<br />

particles from powders in the<br />

food, chemical, ceramic and<br />

other industries has been<br />

introduced by the Goudsmit<br />

Magnetics Group.<br />

USER FRIENDLY OPTION<br />

The Easy Clean flow magnet<br />

is billed as a user friendly<br />

cleaning option. In contrast<br />

to previous designs in which<br />

such magnets were fitted with<br />

two layers of thin bars, the<br />

new design contains a single<br />

row of thicker bars – 50mm.<br />

New measurement techniques<br />

which have been proven<br />

in the company’s test centre<br />

have shown that this<br />

development results in<br />

a higher separation yield.<br />

This is because the thicker<br />

bars remain in contact with<br />

magnetic particles longer.<br />

The flow magnets are easy to install<br />

An additional benefit is the<br />

reduced height of the magnet<br />

as a whole, which means<br />

it requires less installation<br />

height. Furthermore, a single<br />

row of bars now results in<br />

improved product flow which<br />

is particularly relevant to<br />

poorly flowing products.<br />

The pneumatic magnetic<br />

bars are designed to simplify<br />

the cleaning process across<br />

several industry sectors.<br />

KHS Corpoplast has<br />

developed a new<br />

system for PET<br />

preform processing that<br />

offers a considerable<br />

reduction in the amount<br />

of noise due to gentle<br />

sorting.<br />

“With the InnoPET<br />

Silent TipTainer we’re<br />

achieving a much lower<br />

preform rejection rate<br />

than has been the case to<br />

date,” explains Alexander<br />

Heller, technical<br />

project manager and<br />

developer for preform<br />

conveying systems at<br />

KHS Corpoplast. The<br />

reason for this is that the<br />

drop height of the PET<br />

preforms into the tipper<br />

has been greatly reduced.<br />

“Where the rejection<br />

rate was previously at<br />

3%, just 0.25 to 0.3% of all<br />

preforms are now damaged<br />

during tilting or by bumping<br />

into one another as they<br />

fall,” he says.<br />

This lower drop height and<br />

smooth tipping in stages not<br />

only mean that preforms are<br />

The drop height of the PET preforms has been reduced on the Silent TipTainer<br />

handled more gently and that<br />

there are fewer breakages<br />

on the necks; the adapted<br />

tipping process also results<br />

in perceptibly lower noise<br />

levels. And by reducing the<br />

amount of noise pollution,<br />

occupational safety is<br />

improved further for operators<br />

working near the tipper.<br />

The system is available on<br />

new lines, but it can also be<br />

retrofitted into existing and<br />

older plant engineering.<br />

An entry level wrapper is used<br />

First move to<br />

automation for<br />

British Biscotti<br />

The Great British Biscotti Co is<br />

meeting rising demand – and<br />

now national distribution – for<br />

its new range of biscuits with the<br />

installation of a PFM Pearl entry<br />

level flow wrapper, capable of<br />

handling 150 packs a minute.<br />

It was bought to cater for<br />

growing volume by automating<br />

manual wrapping for double and<br />

single slice retail packs.<br />

The PFM Pearl was selected,<br />

explains director Paul Rostand,<br />

for the range of technology<br />

available on what is a starter<br />

level, but nevertheless servo<br />

driven machine: “In particular<br />

we liked the no product/no bag<br />

system while the operator system<br />

is simple and attractive to us,”<br />

he tells <strong>Machinery</strong> <strong>Update</strong>.<br />

Mechanical handling<br />

company WMH has<br />

helped a large dairy<br />

product manufacturer to<br />

reorganise its production line<br />

following a supermarket audit.<br />

The plastic pots of desserts<br />

and sundaes are quite tall but<br />

also have a very small base<br />

which, although looks good<br />

on shelf, also makes them very<br />

top heavy and prone to tipping.<br />

WMH were able to overcome<br />

the problem this presented<br />

at most of the transfer points<br />

on the line by creating side<br />

by side transfers and gently<br />

guiding the product from one<br />

conveyor to another.<br />

There were, however,<br />

also several points on the<br />

production line where end to<br />

end transfers were necessary.<br />

This resulted in one of the<br />

WMH designers developing<br />

a novel and compact transfer<br />

unit to convey the pots<br />

without tipping.<br />

The solution needed to be<br />

compact, able to cope with a<br />

range of product heights and<br />

also to be easy to maintain.<br />

The final answer comprised<br />

a pair of parallel driven<br />

Riggs MU M-A <strong>2017</strong>.qxp_MU 08/02/<strong>2017</strong> 15:02 Page 1<br />

The final solution looks neat and works well with the unstable, tall pots<br />

belts on an adjustable height<br />

mechanism, which could<br />

support and convey the pots<br />

under their top lip.<br />

All of the drive components<br />

for the unit were mounted<br />

below conveyor height which<br />

helped make the unit as short<br />

and compact as possible.<br />

It also allowed it to be<br />

retro-fitted between existing<br />

conveyors with very little line<br />

disturbance.<br />

The unit is manually<br />

adjustable via an above belt<br />

adjustment wheel to enable<br />

quick change overs between<br />

the different products.<br />

Installation News<br />

Pallet conveyor system handles<br />

hot and cold store environments<br />

Leading international<br />

bakery company Aryzta<br />

turned to Conveyor<br />

Systems Ltd (CSL) to provide<br />

a pallet conveyor system<br />

for use within a cold store<br />

environment.<br />

An upgrade to a<br />

de-commissioned cold store for<br />

one of the company’s UK sites<br />

was required to bring it back on<br />

line. The driving force was to<br />

bring the storage back in-house<br />

as subcontracted cold storage<br />

was proving costly.<br />

CSL was tasked to design,<br />

supply and install a pallet<br />

handling system to work<br />

with a range of pallet types<br />

for weights up to 1500kg.<br />

The system also had to operate<br />

in both cold store and ambient<br />

conditions while maintaining<br />

the standard design structure<br />

throughout.<br />

Part of the challenge was to<br />

work within the restrictions of<br />

the existing site layout.<br />

Due to the step in building<br />

heights between the cold<br />

store and ambient area, the<br />

dual lane system had to<br />

be supported from a steel<br />

The project manager at the bakery believes the new CSL system has provided an effective asset to the international firm<br />

structure at 1000mm.<br />

The criteria was to provide<br />

a dual lane conveyor solution,<br />

that was fully reversible, to<br />

store pallets in the cold store<br />

and deliver into an ambient<br />

lobby area ready for loading<br />

onto refrigerated trailers.<br />

The cold store operates at<br />

minus 25deg C and the lobby<br />

area at plus 8deg C.<br />

CSL has used specially<br />

designed sensor rollers to<br />

overcome any condensation<br />

issues. These sensor rollers<br />

replaced the use of normal<br />

PECs, used for detecting<br />

the presence of a pallet and<br />

providing a non-contact<br />

accumulation conveyor system.<br />

As the conveyor was<br />

reversible, two sensor rollers<br />

were used within each zone.<br />

A main control panel was<br />

sited away from the main area,<br />

up in the control room, with a<br />

remote HMI positioned close<br />

to the ambient lobby area.<br />

A second remote panel was<br />

located within the cold store for<br />

dual function control.<br />

As part of the process,<br />

CSL had to work and integrate<br />

with other suppliers to provide<br />

a turnkey solution. This<br />

included interfacing with an<br />

Air Curtain system and a rapid<br />

shutter door. These interfaces<br />

were critical to ensuring the<br />

pallets were discharged in<br />

a sequenced and controlled<br />

manner, while maintaining<br />

the cold store temperature.<br />

Folding machine has allowed a total print<br />

solutions company to meet latest demands<br />

Chapel Press offers a ‘Total<br />

clients and to keep up<br />

with demand, it has further<br />

enhanced its capabilities by<br />

installing a MBO K70 Combi<br />

folding machine, supported<br />

by a SBAP 46 ME vertical<br />

stacker delivery and A76<br />

mobile stream delivery.<br />

All the equipment was<br />

supplied by MBO’s UK &<br />

Ireland agent, Friedheim<br />

International.<br />

“We had a requirement<br />

to significantly increase our<br />

folding capacity,<br />

and after looking<br />

at the options that<br />

were available<br />

we chose what<br />

we regarded as<br />

the best for us<br />

– the MBO K70<br />

Combi folder along<br />

with the vertical<br />

stacker,” says Tim<br />

O’Shea, md of Chapel Press.<br />

“One of the reasons we<br />

chose the K70 was that we<br />

have operators that are<br />

experienced on MBO folders<br />

Friedheim has supplied the new kit to Chapel Press<br />

and therefore the transition<br />

to the new equipment was<br />

going to be very smooth.”<br />

Profiting from complete line<br />

Ulma Packaging has<br />

supplied an automated<br />

solution to Border<br />

Biscuits which has doubled<br />

production.<br />

The family-owned biscuit<br />

manufacturer, which produces<br />

over 300,000 packets of<br />

biscuits a week at its Lanark<br />

factory, invested in Ulma’s<br />

row distribution system to<br />

help meet the demand for its<br />

popular range of mixed variety<br />

products for wholesalers and<br />

caterers. The line includes two<br />

Atlanta Hi-tech flow wrappers<br />

with Dakota infeed units,<br />

where products are sorted<br />

one on top of the other to<br />

achieve twin packs at speeds<br />

of up to 150 per minute.<br />

After packing, the packs<br />

are automatically conveyed<br />

into cardboard containers for<br />

storage and distribution by<br />

using twin case opening and<br />

loading systems, also supplied<br />

Ulma says the Atlanta Hi-tech flow<br />

wrapper improves bakery efficiency<br />

by Ulma, which accurately<br />

counts the correct amount of<br />

packs required for each case.<br />

This totally automated<br />

system replaces Border<br />

Biscuits’ semi-manual<br />

packaging loading operation,<br />

doubling the output of its topselling<br />

range of own brand<br />

products destined for its food<br />

service customers.<br />

The Atlanta Hi-tech includes<br />

as standard the ‘no product,<br />

no bag’ feature, misplaced<br />

product detection and access<br />

to a bespoke software ‘UDAQ’<br />

allowing integration with<br />

remote line monitoring and<br />

data capture. Designed for<br />

the most demanding<br />

applications, the machine<br />

can be installed as part of<br />

an automatic packing line<br />

or as a standalone manual<br />

feeding station.<br />

“This was the largest and<br />

most complex project we had<br />

ever undertaken,” says<br />

Dee Scott, chief operating<br />

officer at Border Biscuits.<br />

“The flow wrapping machines<br />

are performing very well and<br />

are providing the accuracy<br />

and consistency of packaging<br />

that matches the exceptional<br />

high quality of our biscuits.<br />

“Nothing was too much<br />

trouble for Ulma, from testing<br />

the equipment in Spain<br />

to our installation.”<br />

Joint project delivers yoghurt<br />

pot filling and sealing system<br />

Riggs Autopack and<br />

Seal-it-Systems have<br />

delivered a cost effective<br />

and hygienic automatic<br />

upgrade to Yorkshire-based<br />

producer of traditional<br />

Icelandic style Skyr yoghurts<br />

Hesper Farm to meet increased<br />

demand for its products.<br />

Hesper Farm purchased<br />

its first Riggs Autopack<br />

depositor in 2015 to operate<br />

in conjunction with a manual<br />

sealer from Seal-it-Systems.<br />

This Autopack Model 1000<br />

Series 3 depositor is a semiautomatic<br />

unit and its<br />

flexibility proved invaluable<br />

in filling the 150gm, 450gm<br />

and also larger containers<br />

with all styles of yoghurt.<br />

These variants range from<br />

smooth vanilla to strawberry,<br />

blueberry and black cherry<br />

flavours, complete with fruit<br />

additions. However, due to<br />

increased demand and rapid<br />

growth, the company soon<br />

realised that a higher level<br />

of automation was required.<br />

As part of its investment<br />

programme, Hesper<br />

Farm approached the two<br />

companies again to find<br />

a fully automated solution.<br />

Previously, two operators were needed at Hesper; one mixing and filling products and one then sealing and coding<br />

Working together, engineers<br />

from Riggs Autopack and Sealit-Systems<br />

were able to modify<br />

the existing semi-automatic<br />

depositor to a fully automatic<br />

system to work with a new,<br />

bespoke rotary sealer.<br />

The rotary sealer de-nests<br />

one pot at a time from a stack,<br />

and then using a rotating<br />

platen passes each pot<br />

through various stages<br />

from product depositing with<br />

full control integration to<br />

the depositor, through foil lid<br />

placement, sealing, coding,<br />

and finally delivery via<br />

a belt conveyor to the final<br />

packing station.<br />

Previously, two operators<br />

were required; one mixing<br />

and filling the product, and<br />

one then sealing and coding.<br />

This has all changed with<br />

the new integrated automatic<br />

solution that is not only<br />

working faster but reducing<br />

labour needs while enabling<br />

greatly improved production<br />

efficiency.<br />

“My Riggs depositor<br />

machine is very important<br />

to us, without it we’d never<br />

be able to meet demand,”<br />

says Sam Moorhouse, owner<br />

of Hesper Farm. “We produce<br />

in small batch sizes and<br />

we need quick changeover,<br />

damage free depositing and<br />

fill accuracy and hygiene<br />

is also key.<br />

“Our Riggs depositor gives<br />

us all that.”<br />

Packaging technology allows<br />

coffee manufacturer to grow<br />

iCapsulate is a contract<br />

manufacturer based in<br />

Sydney, Australia and can<br />

produce two million coffee<br />

capsules a day and roast ten<br />

tonnes per day. It is constantly<br />

bringing new products<br />

to market and therefore<br />

its secondary packaging<br />

equipment has to be flexible<br />

enough to keep pace with<br />

these changes.<br />

The company recently<br />

installed a new line from Cama<br />

that included a monoblock<br />

unit forming carton boxes, top<br />

loading capsules into boxes<br />

and then closing these boxes,<br />

along with a wraparound case<br />

packer which loads boxes into<br />

corrugated shelf ready packs.<br />

FLEXIBILITY IS THE KEY<br />

Managing director of<br />

iCapsulate Kane Bodiam<br />

cites flexibility as one of the<br />

main reasons for choosing<br />

formats at minimal cost is a<br />

huge benefit, especially for<br />

a business which is contract<br />

manufacturing.<br />

“We found the interface to<br />

be very user-friendly, servicing<br />

is basic and inexpensive for a<br />

machine of such quality,” he<br />

continues. “There is no need to<br />

keep extensive parts, while the<br />

consumable parts that need<br />

replacement last quite long<br />

and are very durable anyway.<br />

NEWLY INSTALLED UNIT<br />

“Cama has exceeded my<br />

expectations, and without<br />

their support we would not be<br />

as successful as we are today.”<br />

The newly installed line<br />

in Blacktown, New South<br />

Wales, was handled by Cama’s<br />

Australian subsidiary.<br />

At the infeed of the Cama<br />

IF296 monoblock loading unit,<br />

the capsules are delivered on<br />

two lanes, upside down<br />

Collated product is picked up by a two axis robot and loaded into boxes<br />

equipment from the Cama<br />

Group. “When selecting<br />

our secondary packaging<br />

machinery there were many<br />

options, but when we drilled<br />

down to the requirement and<br />

flexibility we wanted, only<br />

Cama ticked the boxes,”<br />

he says “Cama offered a<br />

machine with exceptional<br />

build quality; while the<br />

flexibility with the machine<br />

and ease to change and adapt<br />

(seal down). One electronically<br />

controlled starwheel system<br />

for each lane then phases the<br />

cups into an electronically<br />

controlled pocketed conveyor.<br />

A starwheel system for each lane phases the cups during the process<br />

Meanwhile, boxes are glueerected<br />

from flat blanks by<br />

a twin head integrated<br />

electronic forming machine.<br />

The erected boxes are then<br />

transported and phased to<br />

the robotic loading area.<br />

These<br />

collated<br />

products are<br />

then picked<br />

up by a twoaxis<br />

robot<br />

with suitable<br />

head and<br />

loaded into<br />

boxes.<br />

The boxes,<br />

previously<br />

formed and<br />

loaded with<br />

lids in an<br />

upright position, are conveyed<br />

to a robotic closing unit.<br />

The boxes are closed by<br />

hot melt, transferred to the<br />

machine outfeed and then<br />

The company is now planning<br />

to produce other pack formats<br />

Without Cama’s support, we<br />

would not be as successful as we are<br />

today – they exceeded expectations<br />

conveyed to the FW748<br />

wraparound case packer.<br />

Boxes arriving on a single<br />

lane are spaced by special<br />

accelerating conveyors and<br />

positioned in portrait position<br />

into the pockets fixed on<br />

a belt conveyor,<br />

driven by a<br />

brushless motor.<br />

The collated<br />

boxes are then<br />

deviated into<br />

the pre-erected<br />

cases; the flat<br />

blanks are fed<br />

from a magazine<br />

and erected<br />

into a flighted<br />

chain. After<br />

loading, cases<br />

are transferred<br />

to the following station, where<br />

case closing is completed and<br />

the cases are conveyed to the<br />

machine outfeed.<br />

Based on the success of<br />

this project and the part it<br />

has played in iCapsulate’s<br />

exceptional growth, the<br />

company has now decided to<br />

produce another format using<br />

the same machinery.<br />

recognise and reward the high<br />

levels of innovation in the<br />

packaging industry – was split<br />

into five categories: modular<br />

machines, smart machines,<br />

ease of use, sustainability<br />

and traceability & product<br />

safety. The final shortlist and<br />

eventual winners were<br />

chosen by a prestigious<br />

judging panel comprising<br />

representatives from four<br />

leading international<br />

manufacturers: Johnson &<br />

Johnson, Procter & Gamble,<br />

Kimberly Clark and Nestlé;<br />

and two European trade<br />

associations.<br />

Cama Group’s awardwinning<br />

machine was<br />

the company’s new IF318<br />

robotised monoblock loading<br />

unit. It incorporates many of<br />

the features that make Cama’s<br />

The winners were presented with their awards on the first day of interpack<br />

machines stand out, including<br />

cabinet-free technology,<br />

ergonomics and friendly use.<br />

Of particular interest is Cama’s<br />

use of the iTRAK intelligent<br />

track system from Rockwell.<br />

Cama rated highly in<br />

a number of categories,<br />

including ease-of-use, where<br />

it came top. According to<br />

the jury members the Cama<br />

machine ticked a lot of boxes<br />

and showed how an integrated,<br />

modular design concept can<br />

be incredibly flexible and suit<br />

multiple applications.<br />

Winner of the modular<br />

machines category was<br />

another PPMA member. Gebo<br />

Cermex’s modular CareSelect<br />

infeed system stood out for<br />

its product handling, where<br />

movers are only in contact<br />

with bottles for 0.3 seconds.<br />

“This was an incredibly<br />

tough competition to judge<br />

as some of the machines we<br />

saw really did impress us<br />

across multiple areas,” said<br />

one of the judging panel.<br />

“I am convinced that some<br />

of these machines will very<br />

quickly establish themselves<br />

as class leaders.”<br />

The world of packaging meets<br />

Exhibition shows<br />

how Industry 4.0<br />

will bring gains<br />

It is fair to say that most machinery<br />

manufacturers exhibiting at<br />

interpack <strong>2017</strong> were embracing the<br />

internet of things by incorporating<br />

smart features into their equipment<br />

to help customers in the future.<br />

The next 16 pages demonstrate.<br />

There were several different<br />

approaches: some collegiate<br />

and some individual, but all with<br />

a common purpose of making<br />

factories operate in a smart,<br />

efficient manner. Automation<br />

companies such as Siemens were<br />

also taking the opportunity to<br />

demonstrate to the market what<br />

Industry 4.0 means in practice.<br />

However, the question remains<br />

as to how end users will use the<br />

mass of data that will be available<br />

to them via these new devices.<br />

A foreign body detection product portfolio<br />

included the introduction of an x-ray option<br />

Minebea Intec presented its<br />

full foreign body detection<br />

product portfolio including<br />

the new x-ray inspection<br />

system called Dymond Bulk.<br />

This system was developed<br />

specifically with bulk<br />

goods in mind, and is<br />

particularly suitable for<br />

processes between incoming<br />

goods and packaging lines<br />

in the food industry.<br />

Dymond Bulk reliably<br />

inspects bulk goods like<br />

nuts, smaller fruits, frozen<br />

vegetables, and also<br />

spices, coffee and seeds,<br />

and eliminates any foreign<br />

bodies it identifies. The x-ray<br />

inspection system not only<br />

identifies foreign bodies made<br />

from metal, plastic and stone,<br />

but also dirt and glass, which<br />

has benefits for all goods<br />

that are introduced into the<br />

production process straight<br />

from the field.<br />

“The Dymond Bulk can<br />

make a significant difference<br />

in the sorting and cleaning<br />

stage of raw materials,<br />

increasing safety and quality<br />

parameters even before<br />

the refinement process,”<br />

explains global product<br />

manager Michael Zabawski.<br />

For processing granulated<br />

raw materials and foodstuffs,<br />

Minebea Intec offers another<br />

reliable checkpoint in the<br />

form of the freefall metal<br />

detection system Vistus.<br />

This system can be equipped<br />

with tubes and rejection<br />

devices that are suitable even<br />

for dusty products or granules.<br />

Review<br />

Integrated technology delivers a<br />

flexible and efficient experience<br />

Bradman Lake showed<br />

the latest deployment of<br />

its integrated packaging<br />

technology approach in a<br />

complete line that included<br />

vision-guided robotics,<br />

multipack flow wrapping,<br />

end load cartoning and also<br />

case packing.<br />

“All of the machines have<br />

been specifically designed<br />

to meet the challenges of<br />

today’s packaging industry<br />

by improving efficiency and<br />

flexibility in order to increase<br />

profitability,” explains John<br />

Marlee, managing director<br />

at the company. “Single servo<br />

motor sizes, common wiring<br />

patterns and identical HMI<br />

look-and-feel all contribute<br />

to ease of use and operation.”<br />

The line comprised a<br />

VGR2000 vision guided<br />

robotic pick-and-place unit<br />

which was loading products<br />

into the infeed of a FT120<br />

multipack flow wrapper using<br />

two robots. After the required<br />

collation was created and flow<br />

wrapped, the products entered<br />

the IMSL end load cartoner –<br />

the company’s latest machine.<br />

The vision-guided robot allows product to be picked in single piece or collation<br />

This compact-footprint<br />

IMSL incorporates a Rockwell<br />

Automation iTRAK unit to<br />

create a fully integrated<br />

product infeed system<br />

that uses minimal product<br />

transfers. To further enhance<br />

its footprint, the products are<br />

side loaded into the cartons<br />

via a linear motion loader.<br />

Once the carton is sealed,<br />

it is transferred to the new<br />

ZX600 case packer, which is<br />

a small footprint, top-loading<br />

machine that includes an<br />

efficient glue delivery solution<br />

tied into the controlling PLC.<br />

In operation, product can<br />

be picked in single piece or<br />

a collation on the VGR2000<br />

and loaded into either the<br />

infeed of the flow wrapping<br />

machine, a cartoning line<br />

or a case packer. The smart<br />

cameras and delta robots<br />

directly interface with<br />

the Rockwell Automation<br />

programmable controller<br />

using pre-loaded customised<br />

add on instructions so there<br />

are no black boxes.<br />

“All these machines deploy<br />

the latest Allen-Bradley<br />

hardware and software<br />

from Rockwell Automation<br />

designed on a flexible, future<br />

proof principle,” says Marlee.<br />

“It can handle a wide range<br />

of products, formats and sizes<br />

to easily meet the demands of<br />

the fast-changing markets at<br />

any time in the future.”<br />

Machines are also designed<br />

with minimum frame sizes<br />

and easy-access guard design.<br />

They are simple to operate<br />

and maintain, and also robust<br />

and well-built to the latest<br />

safety and hygiene standards<br />

required in the bakery,<br />

confectionery, dry, chilled<br />

and frozen food and<br />

healthcare industries.<br />

Also, a wide range of<br />

optional features are available<br />

to enable the equipment<br />

to be readily adapted to<br />

meet any customer specific<br />

requirements.<br />

Vertical form, fill and seal bagmaker<br />

offers speed and efficiency benefits<br />

Ishida launched a snacks<br />

bagmaker which the company<br />

claims is the world’s fastest<br />

VFFS bagmaker while still<br />

offering the highest levels of<br />

efficiency and seal quality,<br />

reduced environmental<br />

impact and improved operator<br />

working conditions.<br />

The new Inspira bagmaker<br />

is available in both<br />

intermittent and rotary motion<br />

versions, offering production<br />

top speeds of 120 and 200<br />

bags per minute respectively.<br />

Key features that contribute<br />

to these high speeds are a<br />

new film vacuum pull-down<br />

belt design and material,<br />

along with optimisation<br />

of the motion profile of the<br />

servo motor drive.<br />

Equally important, the rigid<br />

structure of the bagmaker,<br />

combined with a higher<br />

accuracy drive control system,<br />

maintains the correct machine<br />

operating conditions and<br />

stability without the need<br />

for operator adjustments.<br />

A newly-designed sealing<br />

mechanism creates a much<br />

higher sealing<br />

pressure than<br />

previous models<br />

for enhanced<br />

seal quality.<br />

The Inspira has<br />

been designed to<br />

allow easy access<br />

to key components<br />

International was sharing a stand<br />

with Opti-Color.<br />

Traditionally, the J-VC viscosity<br />

control system from Opti-Color<br />

has been used for coatings and<br />

inks but, it has been found to<br />

be ideal for monitoring and<br />

controlling the process quality<br />

of products such as chocolate,<br />

wax and fats. “Monitoring the<br />

viscosity of chocolate, rather<br />

than its temperature, optimises<br />

the process as it gets over the<br />

problem of heat being given<br />

off when it solidifies,” explains<br />

Richard Little, director at Jenton<br />

International. “This can therefore<br />

ensure the quality of the chocolate<br />

more accurately,” he says.<br />

director, cij at Videojet,<br />

the 1860 cij printer it launched<br />

its development team never<br />

giving up on innovation.<br />

“Customers tell us that<br />

uptime is key to them and<br />

although they understand<br />

that there will sometimes<br />

be downtime, it is the<br />

unpredictability of when this<br />

will happen that kills them,”<br />

he told <strong>Machinery</strong> <strong>Update</strong>.<br />

That is why the four<br />

new products from three<br />

technologies seen at the<br />

event are all designed to<br />

deliver maximum uptime,<br />

unprecedented reliability<br />

and attractive total cost<br />

of ownership figures.<br />

These four new systems take<br />

advanced technologies further<br />

than ever before, simplifying<br />

processes to allow operators<br />

to dedicate more focus to<br />

production-related activities,<br />

says the company.<br />

Key to this is VideojetConnect,<br />

a remote service capability<br />

that gives operators direct<br />

access to a service network of<br />

technical experts at the touch<br />

Several built-in features,<br />

including a zero adjustment<br />

Review<br />

Getting to grips<br />

with networking<br />

Heuft launched its first ever metal detector and a compact inspection unit<br />

Metal detecting is<br />

first for company<br />

Heuft launched its first<br />

ever metal detector<br />

which has been<br />

designed as an entry level<br />

unit specifically for the food<br />

industry. It is part of what is<br />

called the Heuft One range<br />

of products that also saw<br />

a code verification unit<br />

introduced at interpack.<br />

Further products will be<br />

added in the future.<br />

The design of this new<br />

range has taken into account<br />

the different product<br />

changeover needs and slower<br />

speeds required than, say<br />

the beverage market,” Phil<br />

Cooper, sales & marketing<br />

manager for Heuft UK told<br />

<strong>Machinery</strong> <strong>Update</strong>.<br />

“We believe the new<br />

series sets new standards in<br />

terms of detection accuracy,<br />

operational reliability and<br />

price/performance ratio for<br />

in-line quality inspection in<br />

a confined space.<br />

AFFORDABLE OPTIONS<br />

“The new products make<br />

an affordable introduction<br />

to Heuft cutting edge<br />

technology as particularly<br />

compact stand-alone devices<br />

which are extremely easy<br />

to integrate into packaging<br />

lines,” he continues.<br />

“They combine innovative<br />

detection technologies<br />

with customised hardware<br />

and software and proven<br />

procedures for a highly precise<br />

product tracking, inspection<br />

and fault rejection.”<br />

The first metal detector<br />

complements the portfolio of<br />

sophisticated systems, which<br />

identify all types of foreign<br />

objects, with a slim entrylevel<br />

solution. It is designed<br />

for all those who only wish<br />

to find objects made of iron,<br />

steel, aluminium or stainless<br />

steel first and need to achieve<br />

detection and rejection<br />

reliability up to a high<br />

standard. Importantly, no<br />

tunnel or aperture is required<br />

above the belt.<br />

PROVEN PROCEDURES<br />

The new Heuft One for code<br />

verification, marking and<br />

label inspection detects best<br />

before and expiry dates,<br />

barcodes and 2D codes, article<br />

and serial numbers, imprints<br />

and lettering which have been<br />

incorrectly applied and are<br />

inaccurate. The same also<br />

applies to deviating logos as<br />

well as non-brand colouring<br />

and design elements.<br />

Proven company procedures<br />

also ensure the accurate<br />

removal of incorrectly marked<br />

products.<br />

At its press conference<br />

Gerhard Schubert GmbH<br />

managing director<br />

Gerald Schubert announced<br />

that the company had received<br />

an order with a double-digit<br />

value the night before the<br />

trade fair opened and that<br />

the overall event had worked<br />

well for the company.<br />

“The number of visitors<br />

at interpack was very<br />

satisfying and we could use<br />

the trade fair as a platform<br />

for many positive customer<br />

contacts,” he said. “Altogether,<br />

we have already registered<br />

three orders and many specific<br />

inquiries,” he said.<br />

GRIPS.world was launched at show<br />

“We presented our software<br />

platform GRIPS.world, which<br />

sparked much interest from<br />

our customers, as did our<br />

integrated flow packing unit<br />

Flowmodul and also our<br />

3D scanner.”<br />

The company billed its<br />

GRIPS.world digital platform<br />

as a total digital package<br />

designed for maximum<br />

efficiency and to fully<br />

capitalise on machine<br />

networking and the benefits<br />

of Industry 4.0.<br />

With GRIPS.world, a<br />

web-based platform is being<br />

created, which will raise<br />

internal communication as<br />

well as communication with<br />

customers to an all-new level<br />

of performance, says the<br />

company. The main objective<br />

of GRIPS.world is to further<br />

optimise production and<br />

maintain overall machine<br />

efficiency at a high level over<br />

its entire service life. This is<br />

achieved by using status and<br />

performance data transmitted<br />

by the machine, for example,<br />

to quickly derive measures for<br />

preventive maintenance.<br />

ACCESS FOR EVERYONE<br />

In the future, all Schubert<br />

Group employees, as well<br />

as customers, suppliers and<br />

TLM machines will be able<br />

to access the platform. Access<br />

will be available through any<br />

web browser – via PCs as well<br />

as tablets and smartphones.<br />

The first phase on the<br />

path towards GRIPS.world<br />

is the data box. In the future,<br />

this interface developed by<br />

Schubert System Elektronik<br />

will supplement every one<br />

of Schubert’s TLM packaging<br />

machines as standard.<br />

As a gateway, it retrieves<br />

relevant information on<br />

maintenance, control and<br />

machine performance and<br />

transmits it to GRIPS.world<br />

for evaluation.<br />

A practical example on<br />

the stand provided visitors<br />

with a preliminary insight<br />

into the potential that the<br />

system offers, possibilities<br />

that will go far beyond<br />

predictive maintenance and<br />

condition monitoring, says<br />

Offering future proof<br />

and winning systems<br />

Gebo Cermex launched<br />

a system at the show<br />

application, whatever the<br />

market, in all container<br />

materials and all conveyable<br />

shapes, full or empty, while<br />

also enabling fast, automatic<br />

“AQFlex is a universal<br />

solution that encompasses<br />

the many advantages of all<br />

our existing product handling<br />

systems,” explains Ludovic<br />

Tanchou, vice president<br />

strategy, products and<br />

innovation at Gebo Cermex.<br />

“Care of product integrity<br />

is completely ensured by<br />

the single-lane, contact-free<br />

processing of the flexible,<br />

scalable system that is able to<br />

handle even fragile, unstable<br />

or premium containers –<br />

always on a ‘first-in, first-out’<br />

basis,” he continues.<br />

“Further proof of the<br />

unprecedented flexibility of<br />

AQFlex is its ability to operate<br />

at any speed, from 9,000 to<br />

60,000 containers per hour.”<br />

AQFlex delivers advanced<br />

and secured production<br />

performance regulation,<br />

together with high<br />

accumulation efficiency in<br />

excess of 99.5% to maintain<br />

continuous product flow – even<br />

The AQFlex operates at any speed, from 9,000 to 60,000 bottles per hour<br />

single-file product handling<br />

with advanced robotics based<br />

on a proven logic motion<br />

technology and a centralised<br />

system architecture, ensuring<br />

the accurate synchronisation<br />

of motion control for all the<br />

servo axes of the equipment.<br />

In operation, once the rows<br />

of product have entered the<br />

machine, its robotised pushers<br />

smoothly transfer them either<br />

onto the accumulation table<br />

in the accumulation phase,<br />

or up to the table exit in<br />

bypass mode. The system is<br />

easily integrated into existing<br />

production lines due to its<br />

compact footprint and delivers<br />

last year are already integrated<br />

with i-Techx, but the company<br />

will continue to expand the<br />

x-Series by introducing this<br />

technology across the majority<br />

of its portfolio.<br />

DOMINO INTRODUCED<br />

4 new inks<br />

at the show, which are all<br />

compliant with industry and<br />

also all national standards<br />

“High print quality and<br />

code durability are key to good<br />

performance, while reduced<br />

errors and downtime are also<br />

priorities to drive a low cost<br />

of ownership on OEE,” says<br />

David Croft, global product<br />

marketing manager – cij at<br />

the company. “Our challenge<br />

is to provide a solution that<br />

ticks all these boxes.”<br />

The company believes<br />

using the Domino Cloud<br />

service tool and the i-Techx<br />

platform will result in a smart,<br />

interconnected network of<br />

machines and processes that<br />

centralise and simplify coding<br />

procedures.<br />

“Coding requirements are<br />

more complex in a number of<br />

industries which means system<br />

integration and improved<br />

automation of the production<br />

line is key to simplifying the<br />

coding process,” explains<br />

“We are more than the sum of our<br />

parts,” said Carol O’Neill, Barry-<br />

of quality and service that is more<br />

powerful because of our collective<br />

capabilities and experience.”<br />

Equipment on show from<br />

Barry-Wehmiller’s Accraply,<br />

BW Container Systems, Hayssen<br />

Flexible Systems, Pneumatic Scale<br />

Angelus, Synerlink and Thiele<br />

Technologies divisions were<br />

at the German event.<br />

“BW Packaging Solutions is the<br />

team of people from across Barry-<br />

Wehmiller who are committed<br />

to tapping the best of our<br />

collective insights,” O’Neill said.<br />

“Whether the need is to design<br />

and build a new line or to identify<br />

and purchase equipment that will<br />

improve efficiency, flexibility and<br />

throughput, this team is a resource<br />

to companies large and small.”<br />

Atlantic Zeiser introduced<br />

the newly developed<br />

track & trace system<br />

Mediline T&T which, if<br />

required, can come with<br />

integrated checkweigher<br />

and tamper evident labeller.<br />

The integrated interface<br />

to the Medtracker software<br />

allows the process-reliable<br />

serialisation of filled folding<br />

cartons.<br />

“Many pharmaceutical<br />

manufacturers face<br />

challenges in adapting<br />

packaging lines to new<br />

requirements in a timely<br />

manner while maintaining<br />

productivity,” says Stefan<br />

Rowinski, product manager<br />

at Atlantic Zeiser. “These<br />

requirements involve not<br />

only the obligation to serialise<br />

but, in many cases, tamper<br />

evident functionality as well.<br />

“The new Mediline T&T<br />

offers a complete solution to<br />

these challenges, one in which<br />

the individual functional<br />

modules are perfectly<br />

attuned to one another,”<br />

he continues. “In this way,<br />

existing individual solutions,<br />

for checkweighers<br />

or the application of<br />

tamper evident labels,<br />

for instance, can be<br />

replaced and space<br />

utilisation optimised.”<br />

In addition to a<br />

very compact design,<br />

a new quick-change<br />

device allows the<br />

position of the camera<br />

and printer unit to be<br />

changed without tools<br />

or other components<br />

in a few steps that take<br />

only minutes. This<br />

minimises setup time<br />

and means a second<br />

camera and printer<br />

unit are not required.<br />

“This always plays<br />

a role when lots of job<br />

and format changes<br />

are necessary and the<br />

coding of products is<br />

not always performed<br />

at the same position<br />

on the folding carton,<br />

but varies from product<br />

to product,” says Rowinski.<br />

Review<br />

Pick & place systems show a<br />

delicate side to handling food<br />

PWR Pack presented<br />

a line with a four robot<br />

cell for packaging<br />

all types of food products<br />

including baked goods,<br />

confectionery, snacks and<br />

more. These pick & place<br />

robotic systems are designed<br />

for particularly sensitive<br />

foodstuffs.<br />

Visitors to the stand saw<br />

for themselves how the<br />

system picks and places<br />

different types of products<br />

for packaging at high speed.<br />

Included in the picker<br />

cells are four mechanicalpneumatic<br />

high performance<br />

grippers that gently pick up<br />

the products and set them<br />

down in the right place<br />

with the greatest care and<br />

precision, even in the case<br />

of in-feed fluctuations.<br />

With the help of the PWR Pack<br />

distribution software working<br />

in conjunction with specially<br />

designed 2D and 3D vision<br />

systems, all of which are<br />

developed in-house, the speed<br />

of all modules is co-ordinated<br />

and the full monitoring of all<br />

production steps is ensured.<br />

This allows the exact<br />

alignment of the<br />

products in the<br />

perfect position<br />

and the reliable<br />

elimination<br />

of defective goods.<br />

PWR Pack provided<br />

live demonstrations<br />

of four different<br />

applications: gently<br />

picking up and<br />

placing biscuits<br />

or confectionery<br />

products as well as<br />

filled bags, carefully<br />

lifting delicate<br />

products that are<br />

placed into preformed<br />

trays from the top and<br />

cutting bread using<br />

an ultrasonic knife on<br />

the end of the robot.<br />

Visitors also saw how<br />

quickly the unit can<br />

be converted between<br />

applications.<br />

Another highlight was<br />

a five-axis robot made from<br />

carbon fibre reinforced<br />

polymer. With this<br />

particularly lightweight<br />

design, the swivelling motion<br />

The grippers ensure products are picked up and set down in the right place every time<br />

of the gripper is performed<br />

with maximum precision<br />

and at an even higher speed.<br />

This solution offers many<br />

benefits including fast and<br />

very accurate tilting of the<br />

products, reduced complexity<br />

of the gripper, fewer moving<br />

parts in the gripper, higher<br />

accuracy in picking and<br />

placing and less maintenance<br />

for the customer.<br />

The flat pouch machine at the show<br />

First scalable vertical flat pouch packaging<br />

machine for powder filling was introduced<br />

With the new Sigpack VPF<br />

(Vertical Platform Flat Pouch),<br />

Bosch introduced its first<br />

freely scalable flat pouch<br />

machine to the market.<br />

“In 2016, we won the German<br />

Packaging Award with the<br />

prototype of the Sigpack VPF,”<br />

says Frank Buehler, product<br />

manager at Bosch Packaging<br />

Technology. “We are pleased<br />

to present the unique<br />

advantages of the machine to<br />

manufacturers in the food and<br />

pharmaceutical industry, for<br />

the first time, at this show.”<br />

The company says the<br />

Sigpack VPF offers the best<br />

performance per square metre<br />

of floor space by combining<br />

modular flexibility with high<br />

production speed at a low<br />

overall operating cost.<br />

The Sigpack VPF enables<br />

manufacturers to adjust quickly<br />

and economically to production<br />

volumes and product changes<br />

according to market needs.<br />

Thanks to the modularisation<br />

of the dosing and cross-sealing<br />

units, the machine is freely<br />

scalable from two to up to<br />

twelve lanes. In addition, pouch<br />

sizes are easily adjustable.<br />

Also, the new decentralised<br />

stock of product makes it<br />

possible to pack different<br />

products, such as salt and<br />

pepper, at the same time on<br />

one machine. “The complete<br />

modularisation of the dosing<br />

and sealing units allows for<br />

flexible lanes, making the<br />

new unit a future proof<br />

investment for every<br />

producer,” says Buehler.<br />

Review<br />

Celebrations for global<br />

cheese production offer<br />

This recloseable tray for fresh<br />

veg and fruit extends product life<br />

Recloseable<br />

tray reduces<br />

food waste<br />

Sealpac showed solutions that<br />

address the trend towards skin<br />

packaging, as well as its PerfoLid<br />

system, which is billed as a new<br />

way of packaging fresh fruit<br />

and also vegetables.<br />

The company, together with<br />

its partners Naber Plastics and<br />

PerfoTec, presented PerfoLid<br />

– a breathable and recloseable<br />

packaging system that achieves<br />

an optimal shelf life, maximum<br />

freshness and therefore<br />

minimum food waste of fruit<br />

and vegetables. The system<br />

starts with controlled supply of<br />

oxygen by means of perforation<br />

of the top film, where the amount<br />

and size of the holes is perfectly<br />

tuned to the breathing pattern of<br />

the fresh produce being packed.<br />

Furthermore, PerfoLid packaging<br />

under EMAP (Equilibrium<br />

Modified Atmosphere Packaging)<br />

consists of a tray with recloseable<br />

lid, produced using existing<br />

EasyLid technology<br />

Here, trays are equipped with<br />

a special perforated ring that is<br />

hermetically sealed with a top<br />

film. By opening the tray, a lid<br />

is automatically created that<br />

allows for multiple reclosing.<br />

The traditional step of lidding<br />

is no longer needed, making<br />

EasyLid, and now also PerfoLid,<br />

a cost, materials and spacesaving<br />

solution for all fruit<br />

and vegetables.<br />

Industry 4.0 features were shown<br />

Smart case<br />

sealer was<br />

exhibited<br />

Endoline <strong>Machinery</strong> unveiled<br />

an enhanced, Industry 4.0 ready<br />

version of its fastest random<br />

case sealer.<br />

Since its launch in 2014, to<br />

meet demand from the snacks<br />

industry for a system capable<br />

of sealing random sized cases at<br />

speed, the 744 fully automatic<br />

random case sealer has been<br />

upgraded with new technology<br />

to meet evolving demands for<br />

‘smart’ systems. Crucially, the<br />

744 can now run at speeds of<br />

30 cases per minute across any<br />

case size in any random order.<br />

With rising demand for<br />

different case types, Endoline can<br />

now offer an array of scanning<br />

options on the 744, from front<br />

and side case barcoding to colour<br />

detection, specifically to suit<br />

customer requirements.<br />

With Industry 4.0 having such<br />

an impact on manufacturing,<br />

Endoline also illustrated how its<br />

end of line systems, in particular<br />

the 744, are already helping<br />

manufacturers embrace this<br />

change. Putting Industry 4.0<br />

into context, the Endoline team<br />

highlighted the technical features<br />

which are already compliant,<br />

including smart sensors and data<br />

which are being used to link end<br />

of line systems together.<br />

Industrial automation company<br />

Stelram teamed up with vertical<br />

packaging specialist Velteko as<br />

UK partner at this year’s show<br />

and the two companies exhibited<br />

the new vertical packaging<br />

machine HSV280B with<br />

streamline ultrasonic technology<br />

PFM met accelerating<br />

European acceptance<br />

of its new labour saving<br />

design for film alignment on<br />

baggers, with extra models<br />

based on the concept shown<br />

for the first time.<br />

Launched in the UK at last<br />

year’s PPMA Show, the R-700<br />

intermittent motion bagging<br />

machine is now joined by a<br />

high speed continuous motion<br />

version, the RC600, and a twin<br />

tube machine, the RD550.<br />

Both are capable of<br />

producing stand-up bags,<br />

including the PFM Steelo<br />

four-side-seal design, at<br />

speeds up to 80 a minute.<br />

“The new R-Series machines<br />

represent a milestone in<br />

bagger operation,” says PFM<br />

sales and operations director<br />

Chris Bolton. “By automating<br />

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

most difficult and timeconsuming<br />

tasks for operators<br />

has been eliminated.<br />

“It cuts changeover time<br />

substantially and virtually<br />

eliminates film often wasted<br />

as operators get film edges<br />

into alignment, particularly<br />

The twin tube unit is another easy to set up bagging machine from PFM<br />

important for stand-up<br />

four-side-seal bags which<br />

are becoming increasingly<br />

popular.”<br />

The key to the system is<br />

a turner bar that directs film<br />

to the forming tube.<br />

The angle of the bar is<br />

adjustable via motors to<br />

provide lateral movement,<br />

and hence film centring,<br />

with the exact position held<br />

in memory then monitored<br />

and maintained during<br />

production.<br />

This includes, for example<br />

modules for variable data<br />

printing, for controlling<br />

printing and codes or for<br />

checking that labels are<br />

present and for the<br />

corresponding ejection.<br />

Herma produces the new 152E<br />

in two variants: the version with<br />

a label application belt has no<br />

format sets whatsoever. This<br />

not only leads to particularly<br />

short set-up times but also to<br />

a performance of up to 100<br />

products per minute. However,<br />

higher precision can be<br />

achieved in the version with<br />

the roller prism.<br />

This version handles about<br />

90 products per minute.<br />

“The new<br />

152E fulfils<br />

every need<br />

in the case<br />

of common<br />

product<br />

dimensions and<br />

even with typical<br />

pharmaceutical requirements<br />

Cocoa prices, childhood<br />

deflation, shrinking<br />

products to protect<br />

seen in the confectionery market<br />

in the last year and it is no wonder<br />

that the Grocer’s Top Products<br />

Survey outlined the toll these<br />

issues were having on sales, even<br />

though the pattern is towards<br />

the traditional impulse purchases<br />

in this sector.<br />

But how is this impacting<br />

processing and packaging<br />

machinery manufacturers who,<br />

it seems, are continuing to innovate<br />

in this area as the next 15 pages of<br />

this feature testify.<br />

Peter Dressler, head of sales<br />

for bar production at Bosch<br />

Packaging Technology thinks<br />

that bar manufacturers want no<br />

cross-contamination, low product<br />

wastage and high productivity.<br />

bar production<br />

He believes there are three<br />

factors that are impacting on<br />

bar production just now. Firstly,<br />

the trend for eating ‘on the go’<br />

is impacting the market. And<br />

furthermore, consumers no longer<br />

simply want traditional chocolate<br />

bars, but are also looking for<br />

healthy alternatives such as<br />

grain-based or sugar-free bars.<br />

This is also the second<br />

trend, whereby consumers are<br />

A self-reversing screw has been used<br />

Formats can<br />

tackle issues<br />

The sector has<br />

seen a pattern<br />

towards sharing<br />

bags and also<br />

chocolate blocks<br />

or bars, and away<br />

from impulse<br />

purchases<br />

demanding healthy bars and/or<br />

bars that do not contain a given<br />

ingredient. But the demand for<br />

variety is not just limited to taste,<br />

asserts Dressler, as bars are being<br />

produced in a wider range of sizes,<br />

too. And all these developments<br />

are creating new challenges<br />

for bar manufacturers in terms<br />

of bar production equipment.<br />

Meanwhile, mulithead<br />

weighing’s mixing abilities are<br />

ideal for the confectionery sector,<br />

says Ian Atkinson of Ishida Europe.<br />

Woolworth’s may no longer be with<br />

us – but the pick’n’mix counter<br />

has survived, allowing us to select<br />

our favourite sweets and in the<br />

quantities we want.<br />

Nevertheless, with an increasing<br />

focus on convenience, many<br />

consumers now prefer to have their<br />

confectionery pre-mixed – but they<br />

still want to be sure that there are<br />

enough of their favourites in every<br />

pack, he says.<br />

At the same time, not all sweets<br />

are equal as some are more<br />

expensive to produce than others.<br />

Continuing enhancements to<br />

multihead weighing technology<br />

have made a huge contribution in<br />

this area. Today there are 16, 20, 24,<br />

28, and 32 head models which can<br />

mix up to eight different products<br />

simultaneously for discharge into<br />

the same pack.<br />

Specialist technologies are<br />

abundant in this market and<br />

an example of which is the selfreversing<br />

screw from Abssac<br />

that has recently been used in<br />

the design of what is billed as<br />

a revolutionary confectionery<br />

machine.<br />

a shaking effect<br />

The customer wanted to achieve<br />

an exact shaking motion within<br />

the machine where the liquid<br />

chocolate was being poured over<br />

a prebaked biscuit as it moved<br />

along a conveyor. The shaking<br />

motion ensured an exact, all over,<br />

covering of all of the biscuit base,<br />

but also allowed for the overspill<br />

unused chocolate covering to be<br />

instantly recycled.<br />

Rotating the screw at a low 60<br />

rpm and using a 6mm pitch with<br />

a 180 degree turnaround within<br />

20mm gave the exact required<br />

shaking effect. The nut housing<br />

was made up of a steel follower<br />

blade housed in a brass mounting<br />

which itself was then housed in<br />

a rubber sleeve.<br />

Feature: Confectionery<br />

Palletising is<br />

central component<br />

to sweet success<br />

<strong>Machinery</strong> <strong>Update</strong> reports on the latest central palletising<br />

systems designed and built by CKF Systems that have helped to<br />

streamline operations at two major confectionery manufacturers<br />

Central palletising systems from<br />

CKF are proving popular across<br />

a range of food, pharmaceutical<br />

and automotive industries<br />

but two of the most recent<br />

installations have been at confectionery<br />

manufacturers, including Cadbury<br />

in Sheffield and also Banbury-based<br />

Barry Callebaut.<br />

CKF designed and installed a new<br />

palletising system at Cadbury in Sheffield<br />

incorporating three robot-palletising<br />

cells, each comprising an ABB IRB660<br />

robot with a vacuum gripper together<br />

with a pallet handling system including<br />

pallet dispensers and high speed stretch<br />

wrappers. The robots also have the<br />

ability to handle three separate pallet<br />

sizes with weights of up to 250kg each,<br />

resulting in multiple box pick-up.<br />

This reduces cycle times and<br />

maximises throughput.<br />

The CKF solution has provided Cadbury<br />

with fast, flexible palletising capabilities<br />

and productivity has vastly improved.<br />

It has also further strengthened<br />

Cadbury’s high standards of safety while<br />

also reducing its carbon footprint.<br />

By increasing stacking heights to<br />

1.7 metres, more products can be stacked<br />

on a single pallet; adding more pallets<br />

means a greater volume of stock is<br />

delivered using fewer vehicles and better<br />

utilisation of warehouse space.<br />

At the Banbury manufacturing plant<br />

of Barry Callebaut, the world’s largest<br />

manufacturer of cocoa and chocolate<br />

products, CKF was commissioned to<br />

design, build and install an integrated<br />

robotic central palletising solution.<br />

The new system provides greater flexibility<br />

and reliability, utilises limited floor area,<br />

simplifies operational procedures and<br />

reduces maintenance costs.<br />

MULTIPLE BOX SIZES HANDLED<br />

In addition, it was designed to overcome<br />

the challenges of picking up multiple<br />

box sizes (between 10kg and 25kg),<br />

increase cycle rates and fully comply<br />

with the company’s stringent health<br />

and safety disciplines.<br />

Designed around a single robot cell with<br />

the ability to palletise three different SKU’s<br />

at the same time, this cell incorporates<br />

an ABB IRB 660 with a bespoke gripper to<br />

handle the full range of case sizes, weights<br />

and configurations. The case feed system<br />

includes a high level interface complete<br />

with divert station and barcode detection,<br />

to direct the flow of designated cases to<br />

the robot cell and separate them in<br />

to three defined collation stations.<br />

Each station incorporates an identical<br />

conditioning section to orientate and<br />

collate the cases into defined rows and<br />

Cadbury now has flexible palletising capabilities<br />

Gains have included a reduced carbon footprint<br />

At the Banbury manufacturing plant of Barry Callebaut, CKF was commissioned to design,<br />

build and install an integrated robotic central palletising solution to deliver efficiency benefits<br />

The robot has to pick up multiple box sizes<br />

overall system efficiency. Reliability<br />

has increased and the capability of the<br />

single cell has more than doubled, from<br />

300 to 700 cases per hour.<br />

“We are delighted by the initial<br />

results and the mindset shown by CKF,”<br />

explains Barry Callebaut chief engineer<br />

Mike Parkins. “CKF understands our<br />

business and the very high standards we<br />

demand,” he continues. “The new line<br />

fits perfectly with the company’s long<br />

term capacity-increase model as it’s easy<br />

to operate, requires minimal maintenance<br />

and reinforces the company’s commitment<br />

to improving health and safety.<br />

“We now have a system that is<br />

faster, more robust, requires minimal<br />

maintenance and meets all of the<br />

business investment expectations.”<br />

CKF’s achievements continue to utilise<br />

the latest technologies and engineering<br />

excellence to provide its customers with<br />

a competitive edge. In recent years the<br />

automation and robotics specialist has<br />

invested heavily to strengthen its in<br />

house capabilities and moved in to new<br />

premises at a cost of £1.5million.<br />

FULL RESPONSIBILITY IS TAKEN<br />

“At CKF we are able to take full<br />

responsibility of everything from the end<br />

of line conveying through to a centralised<br />

location including the installation of<br />

a full robotic system,” explains Kevin<br />

Staines, sales director at CKF. “It can<br />

include stretch wrapping of pallets,<br />

labelling if required, double stacking<br />

prior to despatch and the moving of<br />

product through to the departure bays.<br />

“We work across a range of industries<br />

where the challenges of central<br />

palletising invariably have a high degree<br />

of complexity.” This was certainly true<br />

at a project just completed for a popular<br />

snack brand where the objective was to<br />

improve the versatility of the production<br />

plant while increasing line speeds.<br />

The project’s objective was to deliver<br />

its current eleven production lines,<br />

housed in two separate factories, into<br />

a centralised palletising system capable<br />

of handling the full range of pallet types<br />

and stacking patterns. The handling<br />

of over 30 different products was a<br />

particular challenge as these included<br />

a wide variety of lightweight, delicate<br />

product types packed in an equally<br />

diverse range of cardboard outers,<br />

sleeves and trays.<br />

Integral to the complex solution<br />

supplied is a comprehensive control<br />

system and management interface plus<br />

associated product handling, wrapping,<br />

labelling and monitoring equipment.<br />

Conveyor is<br />

delivering a<br />

cool product<br />

UPM has supplied a major confectionery<br />

manufacturer with a special cooling<br />

conveyor to help increase production of<br />

chocolate and fudge combinations.<br />

The producer decided to increase<br />

production of its chocolate/fudge from<br />

2000kg an hour to 3500kg an hour that<br />

were previously being decanted from<br />

moulds manually after being cooled on<br />

a spiral chiller. However, the brief to UPM<br />

was to cater for the increased volumes<br />

to be discharged directly at 80deg C onto<br />

a cooling conveyor and then to be reduced<br />

in temperature to 15deg C before being<br />

transferred via a swan neck elevator<br />

to a multihead weigher/bagger.<br />

UPM calculated that for this quantity,<br />

the cooling load would be 84kW so an<br />

external air cooled chiller was selected<br />

to supply chilled water to four air/heat<br />

exchangers at 7deg C with a return<br />

temperature of 9.5deg C. Also, 16 high<br />

volume air blowers were located above<br />

the exchangers to direct chilled air<br />

onto the product over a 12m long by<br />

900mm wide conveyor fitted with<br />

a 30% open mesh belt.<br />

Temperature control within the cooling<br />

tunnel was regulated via sensors to<br />

increase/decrease the capacity of the<br />

blowers to maintain the required final<br />

product output temperature.<br />

Access to the cooling tunnel was via<br />

electronically interlocked hinged doors<br />

and the belt incorporated toggle clamps<br />

for quick release of tension to allow the<br />

belt to be easily washed down with full<br />

pressure hoses. To do this all electrics<br />

were rated at IP67.<br />

Wrigley in Poland has benefited from simplifying<br />

its conveying process by reducing time and costs<br />

Since simplifying its conveying<br />

process at its Polish plant,<br />

Wrigley has seen a reduction<br />

in energy consumption,<br />

maintenance and cleaning time.<br />

It has also brought the plant into line<br />

with other factories throughout the world<br />

which have been moving towards process<br />

automation across the board.<br />

The system was supplied by Piab who<br />

specialise in vacuum conveying.<br />

With the conveyor system in place,<br />

there is less downtime during the<br />

manufacturing of pressed mints and<br />

pellet form gum, as the vacuum conveyor<br />

and filters are very easy to clean.<br />

Since installing Piab conveyors, Wrigley<br />

52 MACHINERY UPDATE MAY/JUNE <strong>2017</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

Feature: Confectionery<br />

<strong>Machinery</strong> <strong>Update</strong><br />

talks to Fortress<br />

about brand safety<br />

Last year Mars recalled<br />

its products from more<br />

than 55 countries after<br />

plastic was discovered<br />

in one of its chocolate<br />

bars and, claims Phil Brown, sales<br />

director at Fortress Technology UK<br />

the company’s swift response<br />

helped to protect the confectionery<br />

manufacturer’s reputation for<br />

high quality products.<br />

Highlighting that foreign body<br />

hazards in confectionery are<br />

more likely to be metal fragments<br />

from processing equipment wear<br />

and tear rather than malicious<br />

tampering of products, Brown<br />

explains why the sensitivity of a<br />

metal detector plays a vital role in<br />

mitigating a metal contamination<br />

product recall.<br />

He says that as confectionery is<br />

sold in so many different formats,<br />

the aperture size of the metal<br />

detector head is vitally important,<br />

as the smaller the aperture the<br />

more sensitive the metal detector is.<br />

Very often, sweet manufacturers<br />

inspect sugar based products when<br />

in ‘rope’ format using small, high<br />

performance metal detectors. Here,<br />

the sensitivity levels are extremely<br />

high and looking for extremely<br />

small metal fragments. “There’s<br />

little point looking for a 3mm metal<br />

sphere in a fruit gum,” remarks<br />

Phil, who adds that “for individual<br />

pieces of chewing gum you would<br />

be reaching pharmaceutical<br />

performance levels.”<br />

On the face of it, sweet treats like<br />

chocolate bars, biscuits, sweets<br />

and chewing gum should be easy<br />

to inspect. However, the metallised<br />

film wrapper in which they are<br />

often packed also puts them in the<br />

‘wet’ product effect zone. “If you’re<br />

inspecting goods after wrapping,<br />

the metal detector needs to be set<br />

to factor in the worst case product<br />

effect – the wrapper,” says Brown.<br />

For metallised film that is made<br />

up of aluminium dots on film, the<br />

product effect changes according<br />

to the format and quality.<br />

“It’s not so much of an issue<br />

Preventing a<br />

‘total recall’<br />

Metal fragments<br />

are the most<br />

likely foreign<br />

body hazard in<br />

confectionery,<br />

says Brown<br />

for those producing a small<br />

range of candy bars, but those<br />

manufacturing and packing an<br />

extensive range using multiple<br />

types of wrappers, the metal<br />

detectors sensitivity is usually set<br />

to the worst case wrapper scenario.<br />

“To further complicate matters,<br />

you may need to consider orientation<br />

effect, especially with sealed<br />

packs as this creates a dense line<br />

of metallised dots,” he says.<br />

Today’s metal detecting<br />

machines are designed to<br />

Candy makers need to<br />

assess the most prevalent risks<br />

to keep brand reputations safe<br />

autoselect the ‘correct’ operating<br />

frequency in seconds but there<br />

are still limitations for<br />

confectioners producing<br />

a more expansive product range,<br />

especially conductive products,<br />

says Brown. To solve this, for<br />

instance, Fortress engineered<br />

a simultaneous frequency option<br />

where the product and metal<br />

detection frequencies are split.<br />

This technology essentially ignores<br />

the product effect, making it ideal<br />

for conductive products that vary<br />

in size and density or are wrapped<br />

in a metallised film.<br />

Another factor to consider is how<br />

any confectionery products are fed<br />

into packs while at the same time,<br />

eliminating false rejects, he says.<br />

Jelly making is<br />

easy operation<br />

Bosch presented a complete solution for jellies at<br />

interpack that focused on hygiene and ease of use<br />

For jelly producers looking<br />

for a hygienically designed<br />

complete system solution,<br />

Bosch Packaging Technology<br />

showcased its latest<br />

developments at interpack in <strong>May</strong>.<br />

On display was the Rapidsolver BLK<br />

2500 BR for dissolving jelly masses,<br />

featuring a patent-pending heat<br />

recovery system used to preheat<br />

the mass, which is said to<br />

offer up to 50% less energy<br />

consumption and a reduced<br />

total cost of ownership.<br />

In addition, energysaving<br />

dissolving is<br />

achieved through the<br />

optimised design of the<br />

machine, allowing steam<br />

pressure to be reduced by<br />

0.3 bar, further relieving<br />

thermal stress on the product<br />

and preserving its quality<br />

Jelly producers were offered<br />

a complete system at the show<br />

and taste. The machine’s new hygienic<br />

design enables shorter cleaning times<br />

by eliminating areas that can trap food<br />

residues and cause contamination.<br />

This new system solution addresses key<br />

market requirements such as hygienic<br />

operation, reduced energy consumption<br />

and product waste, high output within a<br />

compact footprint and ease of use,<br />

says Martin Tanner, director<br />

business development<br />

and marketing, product<br />

division food at Bosch<br />

Packaging Technology.<br />

Hygienic design is<br />

also in the heart of the<br />

mogul plant, the<br />

HLM 35 Roto Step (RS),<br />

and the drying room<br />

from partner Pinco SA –<br />

both made of stainless<br />

steel with multiple<br />

easy-to-clean features.<br />

Bosch has designed hygiene into the machine<br />

The lateral movement of the depositor into<br />

the mogul’s frame allows for the clean-inplace<br />

function, reducing the maintenance<br />

time and protecting the tray transport<br />

system. Hygienically designed sieve<br />

baskets further reinforce food safety efforts<br />

– a smooth surface and eliminated edges<br />

prevent accumulation of product residues<br />

and enhance gentle handling of jellies.<br />

With up to 35 trays per minute, the<br />

HLM 35 RS’s integrated Roto Step<br />

advancing system features individual<br />

tray movement for high speed starch<br />

moulding of gummy products.<br />

Meanwhile, to meet the growing needs<br />

of confectionery manufacturers for high<br />

speed, hygienically designed packaging<br />

equipment, Bosch has extended its<br />

SVC vertical form, fill and seal platform<br />

with the new SVC 1820 BH bagger –<br />

specifically modified for the industry.<br />

It is built with a stainless steel frame,<br />

while its surfaces are rounded, tilted<br />

and have as few flat parts as possible<br />

to prevent food particles from being<br />

trapped. There are no corners or crevices,<br />

significantly reducing the possibility of<br />

bacterial build-up and facilitating cleaning.<br />

Feature: Confectionery<br />

A new palletising<br />

operation has now<br />

solved bottlenecks<br />

ADutch industrial cookie<br />

manufacturer has<br />

invested in an intelligent<br />

automation solution<br />

to solve the bottleneck<br />

it was experiencing in its shipping<br />

operations.<br />

The company’s strategic focus<br />

has always been on optimisation,<br />

which has seen it implement lean<br />

and efficient processes over the<br />

years, all of which have to handle<br />

delicate, fragile and perishable<br />

products that need gentle handling.<br />

At the same time, production<br />

machines and especially materials<br />

handling equipment needs to<br />

enable operators to carry out fast<br />

changeovers, while minimising<br />

the risk of product damage.<br />

To maintain its competitiveness,<br />

the company has made significant<br />

investments in intelligent material<br />

handling solutions, involving<br />

primary automation partner<br />

Technisch Buro West-Brabant<br />

(TBWB).<br />

TBWB was asked to design an<br />

automation concept with built-in<br />

flexibility for the palletising<br />

operations, which were mainly<br />

performed manually and resulted<br />

in a bottleneck for shipping<br />

operations. A great variety of<br />

biscuit boxes exiting more than 10<br />

production lines needed to<br />

be processed faster, increasing<br />

the palletising capacity to 3,000<br />

boxes per hour.<br />

For the transportation of biscuit<br />

boxes from the different production<br />

lines to the palletisers, TBWB<br />

implemented Interroll’s latest<br />

generation of conveyor modules<br />

and intelligent controls.<br />

The energy efficient RollerDrive<br />

and controls are based on<br />

decentralised drive technology,<br />

enabling planning of futureproofed<br />

conveyor systems that<br />

can be adapted to individual<br />

requirements. No pneumatics are<br />

required which allows operational<br />

cost savings to be delivered.<br />

Handling is<br />

dead clever<br />

A number of<br />

roller conveyors<br />

along with<br />

automatic<br />

palletisers and<br />

vertical lifts are<br />

integrated into<br />

the existing<br />

infrastructure<br />

The project required a great<br />

number of roller conveyors along<br />

with automatic palletisers and<br />

vertical lifts, which were supplied<br />

by another partner, Qimarox.<br />

TBWB integrated all of the<br />

products into the existing factory<br />

infrastructure, taking care of PLC<br />

controls, electrical wiring, user<br />

interfaces and ERP connectivity.<br />

According to TBWB ceo<br />

Bart Friederichs, the 24V roller<br />

conveyors were not only extremely<br />

easy to install, but also provided<br />

ongoing energy savings for the<br />

customer due to the decentralised,<br />

zone-driven conveying concept.<br />

For the inclines and declines,<br />

Interroll belt conveyors were used.<br />

And from the controls side, the<br />

The fragile biscuits have<br />

to be handled carefully during<br />

the entire packaging operation<br />

new Interroll MultiControl allowed<br />

fast and easy setup and smooth<br />

integration with the PLC.<br />

Belt conveyors are generally used<br />

for the transport of unit loads and<br />

small products that are not suitable<br />

for roller tracks, and to prevent<br />

slippage on inclines and declines.<br />

The company’s belt conveyor light<br />

is a belt conveyor that is divided<br />

into zones and successfully<br />

integrates and operates with zero<br />

pressure accumulation.<br />

TBWB installed and integrated<br />

this large, turnkey system within<br />

the given timeframe, while<br />

increasing the overall capacity.<br />

Due to the fragility of the biscuits,<br />

the conveying task was critical in<br />

maintaining product quality.<br />

Avoiding product damage during<br />

the packaging operations was of<br />

critical importance. This is why the<br />

transportation of the boxes needed<br />

to be extremely gentle but at the<br />

same time, also really fast.<br />

Silverson Machines has<br />

released a series of<br />

new ‘How to’ videos on<br />

its YouTube channel<br />

intended to demonstrate<br />

and instruct on how to get the<br />

best results from various key<br />

ingredients in the confectionery,<br />

other foods, pharmaceutical and<br />

chemical industries.<br />

The series includes ‘How to’<br />

information on applications<br />

such as mixing xanthan gum,<br />

dispersing titanium dioxide and<br />

high speed sugar dissolving at<br />

ambient temperature.<br />

The company began producing<br />

video content to demonstrate and<br />

instruct how to get the best results<br />

in various applications when using<br />

a high shear mixer. Although<br />

Silverson has previously produced<br />

videos focusing on the capabilities<br />

and range of its mixing equipment,<br />

the new series of videos is intended<br />

to reach out to those who are not<br />

aware of the technology, to help<br />

them improve their processes<br />

and get the best yield from their<br />

ingredients with the help of a<br />

Silverson high shear mixer.<br />

By focusing on what people<br />

are searching for online, ‘How to<br />

dissolve sugar without heating<br />

the water’ for example, Silverson’s<br />

latest videos target a new audience.<br />

The sugar dissolving video was<br />

produced specifically for the food<br />

and confectionery industries.<br />

“With conventional agitators,<br />

sugar dissolving can be a slow<br />

process which requires water to<br />

be heated to help the sugar<br />

dissolve, but with a Silverson mixer<br />

you don’t need to do that,” says<br />

Harold Rothman, managing<br />

director of Silverson.<br />

Silverson mixers are designed to<br />

dissolve sugar much quicker than<br />

conventional methods, and are<br />

capable of creating up to a<br />

66 Brix sugar solution at ambient<br />

temperature, cutting process times<br />

and costs. The video shows how<br />

Silverson batch mixers offer a rapid<br />

means of preparing sugar syrup on<br />

Mixing with<br />

great results<br />

The Flashmix is<br />

designed to<br />

dissolve sugar<br />

much quicker than<br />

conventional<br />

methods, cutting<br />

process times<br />

and also costs<br />

a smaller scale, and highlights the<br />

advantages of the Flashmix powder/<br />

liquid mixer for large volumes.<br />

With the Flashmix, sugar is<br />

loaded into a powder feed hopper<br />

at floor level, so there is no need for<br />

conveying systems to get it to the<br />

top of the vessel. As the powder is<br />

incorporated into the liquid stream<br />

the high shear action of the mixer<br />

rapidly breaks down the sugar<br />

granules as they pass through the<br />

rotor/stator workhead, exposing the<br />

mixer and the Silverson Ultramix<br />

can be used for dispersing gums<br />

and thickeners – critical functional<br />

ingredients used in confectionery<br />

Feature: Confectionery<br />

It may seem odd to<br />

draw inspiration from<br />

a children’s film for an<br />

article about robotic<br />

automation, yet the<br />

themes of invention and<br />

pragmatism that run<br />

throughout Chitty Chitty<br />

Bang Bang are entirely<br />

relevant when it comes to<br />

making the case for robots<br />

in confectionery production,<br />

says Mike Wilson, business<br />

development manager for<br />

ABB Robotics in the UK.<br />

As anyone who has seen<br />

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang will<br />

remember, Caractacus Potts’<br />

innovative whistling ‘Toot<br />

Sweets’ (a corruption of the<br />

French phrase ‘Tout de suite’,<br />

meaning ‘at once’), came<br />

within a whisker of becoming<br />

his most successful invention.<br />

As the most enthusiastic<br />

confectionery consumers in<br />

Europe, British customers<br />

are continuously demanding<br />

new products and the rise of<br />

internet shopping has led to<br />

an increase in demand for<br />

personalised goods, with<br />

online brands providing<br />

confectionery products which<br />

feature photos, messages and<br />

pick and mix selections.<br />

FINDING NEW WAYS<br />

For this reason, companies<br />

are eager to find new ways<br />

to increase flexibility while<br />

investing in the development<br />

of both new products and<br />

packaging as they vie for<br />

competitive advantage,<br />

and robots offer significant<br />

advantage in this area.<br />

For instance, the inherent<br />

flexibility of robots enables<br />

rapid switchover between<br />

products and helps simplify<br />

the introduction of new<br />

packaging sizes and shapes,<br />

with production lines able<br />

to be easily reprogrammed.<br />

Robots can also perform<br />

intricate processes such<br />

as decorating and cutting<br />

confectionery products,<br />

eliminating much of the waste<br />

generated by traditional<br />

methods of manufacture.<br />

With about 30,000 tonnes<br />

Recipe-driven robotic cells at Mondelez provide the flexibility to meet the demands of multi product variations<br />

Automating<br />

‘toot sweet’<br />

ABB’s Mike Wilson makes the case for why it is now<br />

time for the UK’s confectionery producers to automate<br />

of confectionery estimated to<br />

have gone to waste in 2016, the<br />

ability to produce right first time<br />

represents a significant area for<br />

potential savings in everything<br />

from replacement ingredients<br />

through to energy, too.<br />

One example of a company<br />

that has taken this on board<br />

is personalised confectionery<br />

manufacturer Boomf.<br />

Specialising in the production<br />

of personalised marshmallow<br />

confectionery, Boomf enables<br />

its customers to print their<br />

choice of photos, graphics and<br />

messages on to marshmallows<br />

as a quirky alternative to<br />

flowers, chocolates or greeting<br />

cards. The idea proved so<br />

popular that within a year<br />

Boomf struggled to keep<br />

up with orders. Much of the<br />

delay was happening at the<br />

In reality, the cost of robots<br />

has fallen, making robot systems<br />

more affordable than ever before<br />

cutting stage, where problems<br />

caused by the inherent<br />

stickiness of the marshmallow<br />

confectionery were resulting<br />

in large quantities of product<br />

going to waste.<br />

Boomf’s founder James<br />

Middleton got in touch with<br />

Newtech after watching<br />

a video of the system<br />

integrator’s robotic cutting<br />

solution online. Through<br />

applying a mechanically<br />

PTFE-coated blade to the ABB<br />

IRB 1200, Newtech was able<br />

to come up with a solution.<br />

productivity has increased<br />

in demand. The company<br />

typically receives a large<br />

increase in orders during<br />

holiday periods and needs<br />

the resources in place to cope<br />

with fluctuations.<br />

Furthermore, through<br />

investing in a robot the<br />

company has experienced an<br />

astounding business growth<br />

of 600% within its second year.<br />

Another example of a UK<br />

based confectioner which has<br />

had to adapt its process to meet<br />

customer demands is Mondelez<br />

at its UK Bournville production<br />

site. The inherent flexibility<br />

of its automated distribution<br />

system used in the packing of<br />

‘Roses’ and ‘Heroes’ ensures<br />

the correct quantities of<br />

assorted chocolates are packed<br />

in each container.<br />

Commissioned and installed<br />

by CKF Systems, the system<br />

incorporates four cells each<br />

with ABB IRB 660 robots fitted<br />

with vacuum tooling. Each<br />

cell is recipe-driven, providing<br />

the flexibility to meet the<br />

demands of all variations<br />

for both packing lines.<br />

CHOOSING PRODUCTS<br />

A key factor in the success<br />

of the system is its product<br />

recognition facility. HD<br />

cameras identify the colour<br />

and shape of the products<br />

being fed to the packing line<br />

and ensure the right products<br />

are fed to the correct hopper.<br />

Despite the benefits enjoyed<br />

by Mondelez and Boomf<br />

as well as dozens of other<br />

similar companies around<br />

the world, robotic automation<br />

remains under-utilised in UK<br />

confectionery production.<br />

Concerns over price,<br />

complexity and suitability of<br />

robots for hygienic processes<br />

are some of the key doubts<br />

that continue to be cited when<br />

it comes to investing in robots.<br />

In reality, the cost of robots<br />

has fallen, making robot<br />

systems more affordable than<br />

ever before, while ongoing<br />

developments in control<br />

technology are enabling robots<br />

to be quickly mastered by even<br />

the least experienced operators.<br />

Where hygiene is<br />

concerned, robots have<br />

been proven to help<br />

significantly reduce the risk<br />

of contamination during the<br />

handling and packaging<br />

of raw ingredients.<br />

Given all of these benefits,<br />

there is no reason why the UK’s<br />

confectionery producers should<br />

not install robotic automation<br />

‘tout de suite’ to help satisfy<br />

the nation’s sweet tooth.<br />

Feature: Confectionery<br />

An additional 10%<br />

of product is now<br />

packed every shift<br />

By installing an Ishida<br />

multihead weigher at<br />

its Italian factory in<br />

San Pietro in Casale,<br />

leading confectionery<br />

manufacturer Cloetta’s has<br />

increased production efficiencies<br />

by over 10% compared to its<br />

previous packing operation,<br />

equating to an additional 250kg<br />

of product packed every shift.<br />

The Ishida CCW-RS-216B-2D<br />

was installed as part of Cloetta’s<br />

production transfer of Finland’s<br />

most famous confectionery brand<br />

Sisu from its Finnish factory to<br />

the San Pietro in Casale plant.<br />

The weigher has replaced<br />

two machines in the previous<br />

operation, achieving speeds<br />

of up to 150 packs a minute on<br />

32g and 70g cartons.<br />

Accuracy on the 70g pack is<br />

to within 0.3g of target.<br />

This 16 head Ishida model is<br />

operating in twin mode, with two<br />

sets of eight heads weighing the<br />

product simultaneously, which<br />

effectively doubles output from<br />

a single weigher. A set of booster<br />

hoppers situated beneath the<br />

weigh hoppers increases the<br />

number of weighments from which<br />

the combination closest to target<br />

weight is selected, thereby further<br />

increasing accuracy.<br />

A special rotary distribution<br />

system underneath the weigher<br />

then fills the cartons.<br />

In operation, the automatic<br />

packing line is able to handle both<br />

single and double packs, which are<br />

film sealed, with the single packs<br />

placed into retail ready cartons and<br />

the double packs put into boxes.<br />

Sisu is an iconic brand in Finland<br />

so it was important that the new<br />

production facility in Italy was<br />

able to meet the high standards<br />

expected of the product.<br />

“Our facility was recognised as<br />

delivering the highest production<br />

quality and it was vital that we<br />

could match this quality in our<br />

packing operation,” explains<br />

plant manager, Marco Bagato.<br />

Efficiencies<br />

get boosted<br />

The weigher has<br />

to handle sugar<br />

coated and also<br />

non-sugar coated<br />

items which is<br />

why the easy<br />

cleaning facility<br />

is a key benefit<br />

“Cloetta has Ishida weighers<br />

installed in its plants throughout<br />

Europe so we were well aware of<br />

the machines’ capabilities.<br />

“It was therefore a natural<br />

decision to opt for the Ishida<br />

weigher as it represented the ideal<br />

balance of quality, performance<br />

and price,” he continues.<br />

“Indeed, we know it has the<br />

capacity to operate at even greater<br />

speeds of up to 180 packs per<br />

minute, but at present we are<br />

restricted by the speed of the<br />

existing cartoner.”<br />

Installed by Ishida’s Italian<br />

The Ishida has delivered<br />

ease of use with maximum<br />

reliability and also efficiency<br />

agent Itech Italia, the machine<br />

is handling a variety of Sisu<br />

products including sugar-free<br />

(Leijona) and sugar coated<br />

varieties. Changeovers can<br />

be carried out quickly via the<br />

weigher’s easy to use remote<br />

control unit. Cleaning of the<br />

weigher, which takes place every<br />

time production changes from<br />

sugar coated to non-sugar coated<br />

varieties, is also simple, says<br />

Ishida, as there is no need to<br />

dismantle parts.<br />

The plant is committed to<br />

reducing waste throughout all<br />

areas of its operations and the<br />

excellent accuracy of the machine,<br />

which has minimised giveaway,<br />

along with the simplicity of<br />

cleaning are a vital part of this,<br />

The system works by scanning a<br />

packaging are correct. If a mismatch error<br />

occurs, the line stops and the problem<br />

is investigated.<br />

The recorded data is both accurate and<br />

can be used in real-time, so actions can<br />

be taken if any issues occur.<br />

The automatic system replaces existing<br />

manual production logs, providing<br />

more accurate and reliable data, helping<br />

Kinnerton identify any areas for<br />

further improvement.<br />

Arecent evaluation<br />

undertaken by system<br />

integrator Saftronics<br />

has revealed that by adopting<br />

an intelligent panel and<br />

networked components when<br />

seeking to replace obsolete<br />

switchgear, end users can reap<br />

proven time and cost savings,<br />

as well as enjoying peace of<br />

mind, courtesy of a ‘futureproofed’<br />

technology solution.<br />

Having discussed the<br />

adoption of an intelligent panel<br />

and networked components as<br />

part of an obsolete switchgear<br />

replacement project for<br />

its client BYK Additives,<br />

Saftronics took the intelligent<br />

panel concept one step further<br />

by a proposal to network<br />

its solution using Siemens’<br />

Ethernet based technology.<br />

Siemens is now offering<br />

cost competitive Ethernet<br />

(Profinet protocol) based<br />

variants of its Simocode<br />

motor management device,<br />

including features such as<br />

remote access to data via<br />

integrated web server, automatic<br />

device replacement using<br />

discovery protocols and<br />

availability for cloud based<br />

systems using Open Platform<br />

Communications.<br />

The proposal to BYK<br />

Additives was based upon<br />

the latest Profinet variants of<br />

Siemens’ motor control devices;<br />

Simocode and Sinamics<br />

G120 variable speed drives,<br />

says Safronics. Together, we<br />

thought not only was it the<br />

best technology solution but<br />

it would almost certainly be a<br />

basis for the most cost effective<br />

construction of the panel.<br />

From both system integrator<br />

and end user perspectives,<br />

the provision of a panel using<br />

Profinet technology has been<br />

proven to be cost neutral when<br />

compared to traditional fieldbus<br />

solutions, says Siemens.<br />

assurance that Rulmeca TS8N<br />

drum motors are both durable<br />

It is necessary to identify<br />

the combined rating with drum<br />

Latest safety locking for<br />

moveable machine guards<br />

Sick has introduced the<br />

TR10 lock for highlyreliable<br />

mechanical<br />

locking of moveable safety<br />

protection on machinery such<br />

as guards, hoods, flaps, doors<br />

and screens.<br />

The lock is a safety locking<br />

device providing PLe (EN<br />

ISO 13849) SIL3 (IEC 61508)<br />

protection for personnel and<br />

processes through physical<br />

locking of moveable safety<br />

equipment such as guards and<br />

screens to prevent access to,<br />

or interference with, machinery<br />

in an hazardous area.<br />

Equipped with two output<br />

safety switching devices<br />

(OSSDs), the lock is a type 4<br />

device (EN ISO 14119) and offers<br />

a choice of universally-coded<br />

or unique-coded variants. The<br />

unique-coded variant accepts<br />

only previously taught-in<br />

actuators, which means it has a<br />

high coding level and therefore<br />

removes the need for additional<br />

measures for protection against<br />

manipulation during mounting<br />

(EN ISO 14119).<br />

It can be cascaded in a series<br />

with up to 30 devices in large<br />

The lock provides reliable mechanical locking of guards, doors and screens<br />

installations with minimal<br />

cabling and connection costs.<br />

“The TR10 lock features<br />

an RFID-triggered solenoid<br />

locking bolt that extends<br />

into the actuator for physical<br />

prevention of opening, or<br />

movement, of a safety guard,”<br />

explains safety specialist at<br />

Sick Dr Martin Kidman.<br />

“The holding force of 1300N<br />

ensures effective protection<br />

and the TR10 can be mounted<br />

in several different ways to<br />

make it easy to integrate with<br />

the machine design.<br />

“The TR10 lock is especially<br />

useful in situations where<br />

fault masking may be an<br />

issue, since they can be<br />

connected in series quickly,<br />

easily and independently of<br />

control units,” he continues.<br />

“The safety level (PLe/SIL3)<br />

is not lost because the OSSD<br />

semiconductor outputs reliably<br />

detect any errors.”<br />

The lock is equipped with a<br />

bi-stable solenoid, so it uses<br />

only a small amount of power<br />

and does not produce heat,<br />

whether locked or unlocked.<br />

or download a white paper<br />

entitled: Compressed air<br />

preparation in pneumatics<br />

at the web address at the<br />

bottom of this piece.<br />

PNEUMATICS RANGE<br />

In addition, and highlighted<br />

with a ‘blue star’ in its<br />

catalogue, Festo’s core range<br />

range of pneumatics can<br />

also be accessed.<br />

“A correctly specified and<br />

sized air preparation set<br />

is essential to the smooth<br />

running of your pneumatic<br />

system,” explains Aruj Abbas,<br />

product marketing manager<br />

for air supply at Festo.<br />

“Particles, water and oils in<br />

compressed air can lead to<br />

mechanical friction, corrosion<br />

or clogging. Following<br />

simple preventative steps can<br />

significantly improve service<br />

life, energy efficiency and<br />

system availability, ensuring<br />

your machine functions to its<br />

full capacity.”<br />

Festo says these technical<br />

resources offer practical<br />

advice on how to optimise a<br />

system to ensure maximum<br />

machine performance, uptime<br />

and service life.<br />

Top tips include: Check the<br />

flow rates of fine filters; Avoid<br />

water in the system;<br />

Use easy-to-read pressure<br />

gauges; Reduce air pressure to<br />

the machine; Correctly size air<br />

preparation units and Monitor<br />

or inspect filter elements.<br />

68 MACHINERY UPDATE may/june <strong>2017</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

Regulations<br />

Easing the pain of<br />

EMF for end users<br />

Paul Laidler Taylor<br />

Business MANAGER director FOR MACHINERY for <strong>Machinery</strong> SAFETY saftey AT TÜV At SÜD Tüv PRODUCT Süd Product SERVICE service<br />

Nearly a year since the EMF Directive’s introduction, machinery end users are still struggling<br />

to comply but, says Paul Taylor, machinery manufacturers could ease this pain with relative ease<br />

The Physical Agents<br />

Directive (EMF) 2013/35/<br />

EU came into force in<br />

July 2016 to prevent people<br />

from being exposed to<br />

hazardous electromagnetic<br />

fields in the workplace.<br />

This regulation puts the onus<br />

on machinery end users, who<br />

are now required to undertake<br />

a workplace assessment to<br />

measure EMF levels and<br />

ascertain the risk of workers’<br />

exposure to unsafe levels of<br />

electromagnetic fields (EMF).<br />

Restrictions placed on EMF<br />

quantities include electric<br />

field strength, magnetic<br />

field strength, magnetic flux<br />

density, power density and<br />

contact current.<br />

RADIATION LEVELS<br />

While certain electrical<br />

products must be tested to<br />

European standards on EMF<br />

in order to gain CE Marking,<br />

there is no requirement for<br />

machinery manufacturers to<br />

share specific radiation levels<br />

data within documentation.<br />

While the new EMF Directive<br />

is workplace specific,<br />

machinery end users would<br />

benefit significantly if<br />

manufacturers and importers<br />

provided evidence of<br />

conformity, which would help<br />

them to meet their requirements<br />

under the EMF Directive much<br />

more easily and cost effectively.<br />

The majority of electrical<br />

products are liable to generate<br />

electromagnetic fields and<br />

while there is CE Marking<br />

Legislation (EMC Directive<br />

2014/30/EU) that covers<br />

the performance side of<br />

emissions and immunity<br />

of electromagnetic fields,<br />

it does not contain any safety<br />

level requirements. The safety<br />

aspect is generally covered<br />

by other product legislation,<br />

such as the <strong>Machinery</strong><br />

(2006/42/EC) and Low Voltage<br />

Directives (2014/35/EU), which<br />

contain requirements asking<br />

manufacturers to ensure that<br />

radiation does not have an<br />

adverse effect on people.<br />

While there could be a range<br />

of different types of radiation<br />

to consider, it does also cover<br />

electromagnetic fields.<br />

To help machinery end users<br />

understand their obligations,<br />

the European Commission has<br />

produced a series of Practical<br />

Guides. Within these, all that<br />

machinery manufacturers are<br />

required to do is to provide<br />

information on any residual<br />

risks and protective measures<br />

which the end user could<br />

implement. Where machinery is<br />

likely to emit radiation that may<br />

cause harm, the manufacturer<br />

is required to provide<br />

information on the emission<br />

in respect of both the operator<br />

and anyone else exposed,<br />

this is particularly essential<br />

for any employees that wear<br />

implanted medical devices<br />

such as pacemakers.<br />

Volume 1 of the Practical<br />

Guide states: “Where<br />

information from databases<br />

and manufacturers is available<br />

this will offer employers a much<br />

simpler route to demonstrating<br />

compliance than undertaking<br />

a specific assessment.”<br />

It also states that: “Databases<br />

of generic assessments for<br />

particular industry sectors may<br />

be very helpful. These might<br />

be produced by government<br />

institutions, professional bodies<br />

or trade associations. In all<br />

cases a prime consideration<br />

would be to save individual<br />

employers from the time<br />

and expense of carrying<br />

out specific assessments...<br />

When considering the use<br />

of information obtained from<br />

<strong>Machinery</strong> manufacturers<br />

that share their test results will<br />

surely delight their customers<br />

databases, employers should<br />

check that the equipment is<br />

being used as intended in both<br />

the database assessment and<br />

their own workplace.<br />

“In addition, the assessment<br />

data may not be relevant if<br />

the equipment is of a very<br />

different age or has not been<br />

properly maintained.”<br />

DATABASE INITIATIVE<br />

One example of such a database<br />

initiative is the European<br />

Commission’s support for a<br />

software package to assist<br />

employers with the assessment<br />

of welding and allied processes.<br />

But for the wide variety of<br />

machinery available, any<br />

volume of such association-led<br />

initiative is a long way off.<br />

The Practical Guide also<br />

states that standards are<br />

currently being developed<br />

to help manufacturers with<br />

the process of assessing<br />

emissions specified in<br />

the EMF Directive. Some<br />

of these standards will also<br />

specify how the assessment<br />

results should be reported<br />

to purchasers of equipment.<br />

The Practical Guide advises<br />

readers that: “Manufacturers<br />

may also decide to provide<br />

additional information not<br />

specified in the standard<br />

where they feel this would be<br />

helpful to a purchaser.” I would<br />

argue that any additional<br />

information provided by a<br />

machinery manufacturer, that<br />

helps an end user comply more<br />

easily with the Physical Agents<br />

Directive (EMF), is bound to<br />

increase that product’s appeal.<br />

<strong>Machinery</strong> manufacturers,<br />

who must carry out emissions<br />

testing as part of the compliance<br />

process, should help out their<br />

customers by sharing this<br />

information. It would take<br />

little additional effort on their<br />

part, for substantial gain<br />

by their customers.<br />

Ultimately, this has<br />

the potential to deliver a<br />

competitive advantage for those<br />

machinery manufacturers that<br />

do grasp the nettle on this.<br />

End users are likely to favour<br />

these products if they know it<br />

will save them time and money<br />

when undertaking an EMF<br />

workplace assessment.<br />
