Mark Williamson<br />

CHAIRMAN PPMA GROUP OF ASSOCIATIONS<br />

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

In the July/August issue of this magazine I highlighted that<br />

it was the largest ever summer edition. Just a few months later,<br />

and as I review the recent PPMA Show, it is fantastic to report<br />

that this annual exhibition was the largest in over 12 years in<br />

terms of floor space and exhibiting companies. Footfall was<br />

also up with more visitors than the previous year, and many<br />

exhibitors praising the quality of contacts and discussions<br />

taking place during the event.<br />

This confirms the results of a customer survey I commissioned<br />

at my day job at Stemmer Imaging which highlighted that<br />

personal, face-to-face contact is valued as the most important<br />

way of communicating for forging strong business relationships.<br />

In the machinery world, I believe it will be a long, long time<br />

before events such as the PPMA Show are replaced by the<br />

internet alone. If you missed the show, a full review of just some<br />

of the equipment launched starts on page 29 of this issue.<br />

It’s been another record-breaking<br />

year for the PPMA Group as it<br />

continues to add value for members<br />

On the first night of the show, we held the annual PPMA Group<br />

awards dinner. This year the PPMA strengthened the independent<br />

judging panel and award review process to make them even<br />

more robust. We have included three pages dedicated to these<br />

awards which highlight innovation and the outstanding business<br />

performance of our members (see pages 10, 12 and 13).<br />

At the gala dinner, I talked about the PPMA celebrating its<br />

30th year in business. Back in the founding year – 1987 – a pint<br />

of lager was just 92p. As a country, we were trying to forge<br />

a better relationship with Europe by giving the go ahead for<br />

the Channel Tunnel to be built. Thirty years on and we are<br />

negotiating Brexit. How times change!<br />

However, in the PPMA’s 30th year the association has achieved<br />

another record by breaking the 500-member barrier, a clear sign<br />

that the need for manufacturers to automate has never been<br />

greater in the relentless drive for efficiency, quality and consistent<br />

products. This issue we feature news of processing and packaging<br />

machinery for the pharmaceutical industry, a market that is<br />

synonymous with demanding high quality products (the feature<br />

starts on page 42). This sector has always strived to achieve high<br />

standards in processing, packaging, automation and inspection<br />

solutions and is a great example of how far these technologies<br />

have progressed since our formation, thirty years’ ago. n<br />

Rulmeca offers a comprehensive range of high<br />

quality rollers and components for conveyors,<br />

constructed from aluminium, mild steel, stainless<br />

steel and high resistance technopolymers.<br />

Rulmeca drum motors provide the ideal drive<br />

solution for belt conveyors and associated material<br />

handling equipment. They are versatile, energy<br />

efficient and hermetically sealed for hygienic<br />

operations and wash-down applications<br />

(IP66/IP69) in food processing, packing operations<br />

and logistics.<br />

Thousands went to the celebrations<br />

German company<br />

celebrated its 70th<br />

birthday in style<br />

Specialist food and dairy processing<br />

and packaging machinery producer<br />

Alpma celebrated a milestone<br />

anniversary with guests from<br />

around the world, its employees<br />

and a subsequent open-house<br />

event. The family-owned business,<br />

now in its third generation,<br />

looked back on the company’s<br />

beginnings and growth with the<br />

support of its 800 employees.<br />

The company covers all of<br />

the process steps from milk to<br />

packaged cheese with a high<br />

degree of automation. “Thanks<br />

to our engineering technologies<br />

and turnkey solutions for every<br />

aspect of dairy production, we now<br />

operate on five continents,” said<br />

md Gisbert Strohn. The company<br />

is currently engaged in projects<br />

in North America, Australia and<br />

Japan as well as in India.<br />

Biggest PPMA Show<br />

for over a decade<br />

was a must-see event<br />

Over 7,500 visitors from<br />

the food, drinks,<br />

pharmaceuticals,<br />

chemicals and fmcg sectors<br />

were at the PPMA Show in<br />

September, along with 3,500<br />

visitors from the co-located<br />

shows Interplas <strong>2017</strong>, TCT<br />

Show <strong>2017</strong> and Sensors and<br />

Instrumentation.<br />

Greeting them at the PPMA<br />

Show were 350 international<br />

exhibitors representing<br />

1,500 companies in hall 5<br />

of the NEC, Birmingham.<br />

Reflecting on the success of<br />

the <strong>2017</strong> event, PPMA Group<br />

ceo Andrew Mint said:<br />

“The fact the PPMA Show <strong>2017</strong><br />

celebrated its biggest event of<br />

the past 12 years is testament to<br />

the strength of the processing<br />

and packaging industry.<br />

“From the innovation found<br />

across the exhibition floor<br />

to the thought leadership<br />

displayed on the Learning<br />

Hub stage and the incredible<br />

achievements of companies<br />

Visitors flocked to the 3-day show<br />

in the PPMA Group Industry<br />

Awards, it is evident UK<br />

manufacturing is showing<br />

no signs of slowing down,”<br />

he told Machinery Update.<br />

Next year’s event takes<br />

place in hall 5 of the NEC,<br />

Birmingham from Tuesday 25<br />

– Thursday 27, September.<br />

Made Smarter Review<br />

predicts bright future<br />

for manufacturers<br />

Britain’s manufacturing<br />

sector could create thousands<br />

of jobs if it embraces the<br />

fourth industrial revolution<br />

according to a government<br />

commissioned review on<br />

industrial digitalisation<br />

published as Machinery<br />

Update went to press.<br />

Called the Made Smarter<br />

Review <strong>2017</strong>, the report was<br />

led by Jürgen Maier, the UK<br />

and Ireland ceo of Siemens.<br />

The 246-page document brings<br />

together the views and input<br />

from over 200 companies and<br />

organisations and its proposals<br />

include help for SMEs in<br />

adopting fourth industrial<br />

revolution technologies as well<br />

as plans to upskill one million<br />

UK industrial workers. Maier<br />

said the combined package<br />

of measures will boost UK<br />

growth and productivity in<br />

manufacturing and provide<br />

increased earning potential.<br />

The government will now<br />

consider the proposals and the<br />

publication of a white paper is<br />

expected before Christmas.<br />

PPMA Group Industry Awards <strong>2017</strong><br />

Celebrating outstanding<br />

industry achievements<br />

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

Birmingham and on this page we highlight the winners of the two individual awards,<br />

while the following pages feature nine further winners in the other categories<br />

Comedian Stuart Francis and Sky Sports’ Hayley McQueen were the hosts<br />

Chairman of the PPMA Group Mark Williamson welcomed guests to the<br />

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

The Apprentice of the Year award recognises emerging talent within the<br />

processing and packaging, robotics and automation and industrial vision<br />

industries and was presented by Eliza Rawlings, general manager of award<br />

sponsor Festo UK. Winning this award in a hard-fought category was Jake<br />

Martin of Yorkshire Packaging Systems. Unfortunately, Jake couldn’t be at<br />

the awards ceremony and so we have pictured him at his workplace.<br />

Jake was described at the ceremony as an eager, committed, hard-working<br />

person with an excellent working attitude. He shows leadership skills and<br />

demonstrates real added value to the company as the impressive customer<br />

feedback about him being testimony to his success.<br />

Highly commended in this category was Tobias Cowan from HepcoMotion.<br />

The Outstanding Achievement award is given to one manufacturing<br />

professional who has made an exceptional contribution to the industry<br />

over the years. This year, David Norris of DC Norris was presented with<br />

his accolade by the PPMA Group ceo Dr Andrew Mint for his commitment<br />

and passion for the industry and quality of manufacturing, helping to grow<br />

his company from humble beginnings to the multi-million pound global<br />

enterprise it is, today.<br />

Norris has been at the forefront of the food processing industry for over<br />

45 years and during this time his knowledge and enthusiasm has helped<br />

many clients and colleagues to achieve their goals. He is continually striving<br />

to take the company to new levels and has an incredible gift for design<br />

and engineering. Because of this drive, the company has achieved many<br />

accolades and won numerous large contracts with leading food producers<br />

all around the world.<br />

“I’m lost for words; it’s unbelievable to have won this prestigious award,”<br />

he said on the night. “But it also feels like the beginning for DC Norris as we<br />

still have more to conquer with our team of fantastic people.”

Stretch blow moulder is<br />

an energy saving option<br />

Industrial washing<br />

robot is a robust<br />

automotive option<br />

Fanuc UK has unveiled its latest<br />

industrial robot developed<br />

specifically for industrial washing<br />

applications.<br />

The robust and flexible<br />

R-2000iC/210WE is capable of<br />

withstanding high pressure loads<br />

and forces, with a maximum<br />

payload of 210kg. Its outer<br />

coating and oil-equipped reducers<br />

prevent corrosion from water,<br />

detergent or mechanical stress,<br />

and the robot is waterproof to<br />

IP67 standard.<br />

The robust nature of the robot<br />

allows it to work, unmanned,<br />

for long periods of time without<br />

interruption. Operators can also<br />

check the status of the robot<br />

via the Teach Pendant, which<br />

minimises the risk of unexpected<br />

downtime or process errors.<br />

T 02476 053 000<br />

W www.fanuc.eu<br />

The latest generation of<br />

Kosme’s KSB R stretch<br />

blow moulders is, says<br />

the company an all-rounder<br />

as these rotary machines are<br />

able to produce containers<br />

with round, oval, square or<br />

rectangular shapes holding<br />

0.1 to 3 litres, suitable for<br />

both still water and carbonated<br />

soft drinks products.<br />

They are each available as<br />

individual machines or blocksynchronised<br />

with a filler and<br />

a labeller.<br />

The new models of KSB<br />

rotary machines can be<br />

delivered with four, six<br />

or seven stations (KSB 4R<br />

to KSB 7R) and include<br />

many improved features.<br />

For instance, even better<br />

assemblies, scoring<br />

particularly well in terms of<br />

their very high station output<br />

are included; a mould quickchange<br />

system and an ultraflexible<br />

electromagnetic<br />

stretching system that<br />

consumes no compressed air<br />

have also been incorporated<br />

in the blow moulding stations.<br />

Indeed, compared with<br />

The infrared linear oven in the new generation machine is energy efficient<br />

their predecessors, these<br />

machines have reduced their<br />

compressed air consumption<br />

by a total of 35%, thanks<br />

primarily to the optimised<br />

Air Wizard Plus compressedair<br />

recovery system and the<br />

further reduction in dead space<br />

volume. This means that<br />

compressed-air savings are<br />

maximised in every cycle.<br />

Meanwhile, the infrared<br />

linear oven also scores highly<br />

in terms of energy efficiency,<br />

since the flexible heating<br />

zone adjustment feature,<br />

together with a small heating<br />

compartment providing<br />

individualised adjustment<br />

options, ensure that the energy<br />

consumption has been reduced<br />

by up to 15%.<br />

The blow moulders also<br />

feature intuitive operator<br />

control, their individual<br />

components are easy to clean,<br />

and are also quickly replaced,<br />

if required.<br />

New Machinery<br />

Version 2 offers more user benefit<br />

Reduced waste as well<br />

as costs for tray users<br />

Data reporting and<br />

analysis software<br />

has been updated<br />

In response to feedback from<br />

food processors, manufacturers<br />

and packers, Loma Systems<br />

has launched Version 2 of its<br />

TRACS (Trending-Reporting-<br />

Analysis-Capture-Software)<br />

data reporting and analysis<br />

software. Designed to further<br />

reduce manufacturing costs and<br />

improve production efficiencies,<br />

the new graphical network-based<br />

tool monitors the performance<br />

of the company’s full range of<br />

inspection equipment and offers<br />

better functionality, reporting<br />

and overall user experience.<br />

Like its predecessor, Version 2<br />

of TRACS has been developed in<br />

conjunction with long-standing<br />

partner AutoCoding Systems.<br />

It runs over a customer’s factory<br />

network and provides real time<br />

feedback across all lines in a<br />

central format for analysis and<br />

reporting of key measurements<br />

Mondini has launched<br />

a second generation<br />

Platformer machine<br />

that allows customers to<br />

produce their own trays at<br />

much reduced costs than<br />

preformed versions, and from a<br />

range of materials such as rPET<br />

for modified atmosphere and<br />

tray skin sealing applications.<br />

Two models of machine are<br />

currently available: single<br />

lane and twin lane for higher<br />

production speeds.<br />

According to the company,<br />

today’s packaging line<br />

is divided into either<br />

thermoforming or tray sealing<br />

lines but Platformer is billed<br />

as the missing link in this<br />

scenario. “By combining<br />

the Mondini Trave with the<br />

new Platformer, a packaging<br />

line becomes what could be<br />

defined as a thermosealer,<br />

which gives the best of both<br />

worlds,” says Brian Hemsley,<br />

sales director of Mondini in<br />

the UK.<br />

The combination means<br />

users are free to switch from<br />

thermoformed in-line trays<br />

from a reel or premade trays<br />

The new Platformer machine was first introduced by Mondini at interpack<br />

at any moment, according to<br />

production needs. And this<br />

changeover can be achieved in<br />

less than ten minutes as only<br />

two components need to be<br />

altered each time.<br />

“Platformer is a new way of<br />

tray forming as it cuts the tray<br />

footprint before the forming<br />

process occurs,” continues<br />

Hemsley. “This reduces the<br />

scrap to just 1%.”<br />

Whether using trays mode<br />

in-line, or premade versions,<br />

product can be filled either<br />

automatically or manually.<br />

the easy exchange of feeder<br />

types and sizes as well as<br />

hoppers or agitators using the<br />

same scale and drive for fast<br />

adaptation to new processes<br />

and formulations while also<br />

ensuring easy cleaning and<br />

maintenance.<br />

This new design is ideal<br />

for multi feeder clustering<br />

in a variety of continuous<br />

processes, including direct<br />

compression, continuous<br />

extrusion, wet and dry<br />

granulation, and continuous<br />

coating, as well as traditional<br />

batch processes.<br />

Modifications include quick<br />

change feeder bowl, agitator<br />

and screw combinations<br />

which can be quickly<br />

decoupled from the feeder<br />

drive to provide for easy and<br />

fast changeover and cleaning.<br />

Meanwhile, the redesign of the<br />

scale from a round design to<br />

a trapezoid design facilitates<br />

improve punnet throughput.<br />

After considering the<br />

project’s specification,<br />

Brillopak decided that the best<br />

way to accomplish the task<br />

was to single pick if possible.<br />

If the punnets could be<br />

individually packed, then<br />

it would solve both the previous<br />

problem with accumulation<br />

(meaning fewer stoppages)<br />

and require less staff.<br />

The retailer would also be<br />

able to pack the produce in<br />

a variety of ways, instead of<br />

in a single direction.<br />

To accomplish this single<br />

pick implementation at such<br />

a high rate, Brillopak selected<br />

Omron’s Quattro Delta robot –<br />

the world’s fastest robot with<br />

a top speed pick rate of<br />

300 per minute.<br />

Another first for Omron’s<br />

Quattro Delta is its fourth arm<br />

design which allows it to reach<br />

30% further than similar sized<br />

robots. The additional axis<br />

also allows the robot to tilt the<br />

load, making it much more<br />

flexible and therefore ideal for<br />

placing packs in tight spaces,<br />

such as punnet crates.<br />

Brillopak designed and<br />

manufactured a bespoke<br />

line named Meteor, which<br />

incorporates two Quattro<br />

robots, one placed after the<br />

other and using Brillopak’s<br />

own custom designed heads.<br />

The heads use multiple<br />

vacuum cups, which each<br />

have their own generator, to<br />

provide a secure grip on the<br />

punnet. This is particularly<br />

useful when handling a<br />

punnet with multiple holes in<br />

the film lid, as it means that<br />

a single cup won’t break the<br />

vacuum seal for the rest.<br />

To further protect the line<br />

from any downtime, Brillopak<br />

uses Omron’s Pack Expert to<br />

set up packing formations to<br />

accommodate new products.<br />

The software can be used<br />

offline, has a drag-and-drop<br />

feature for better control of the<br />

packing process, and offers<br />

3D simulation to provide<br />

a greater level of visibility.<br />

In operation, once the<br />

retailer is happy with the new<br />

layout, it can be downloaded<br />

quickly to the line, keeping<br />

any stoppages to an absolute<br />

minimum.<br />

INTUITIVE SOFTWARE USE<br />

Brillopak integrated the<br />

packing solution under<br />

the control of an Omron NJ<br />

PLC and Sysmac software,<br />

accessed by Omron HMIs.<br />

Intelligent design of the<br />

software and GUI for the HMIs<br />

was also essential to cutting<br />

downtime. Furthermore, as<br />

the line operator may not have<br />

English as a first language,<br />

the software for the HMI was<br />

specially designed to show<br />

the most likely actions in an<br />

intuitive way.<br />

Over time, Brillopak has<br />

shown that this approach is<br />

very effective in getting the<br />

line back up and running<br />

promptly, and requires less<br />

call-out for engineers.<br />

The system also has a remote<br />

access feature, allowing<br />

Brillopak to access almost<br />

every part of the system to<br />

determine the cause of any<br />

line stoppage.<br />

“For this installation,<br />

the customer demanded a<br />

return on investment in less<br />

than two years,” says David<br />

Jahn, managing director of<br />

Brillopak. “To achieve such<br />

a demanding target means<br />

keeping the line operating<br />

almost continuously,” he<br />

explains, “which is why the<br />

line was specifically designed<br />

to eliminate the stops that<br />

occur frequently because of<br />

problems with accumulation.<br />

“It was also designed to<br />

minimise the time taken to<br />

get the line up and running<br />

after changeovers, or any<br />

other stoppages, which<br />

can lead to over an hour of<br />

downtime every day,” he tells<br />

An automatic high speed<br />

flow wrapping line<br />

able to handle two<br />

quite different but highly<br />

fragile products - each in<br />

different formats - has been<br />

designed and built by Italian<br />

manufacturer PFM for one of<br />

the country’s leading organic<br />

Based on a single PFM<br />

Falcon four axis, servocontrolled<br />

flow wrapper,<br />

the line is compact and uses<br />

an automatic feeding system<br />

and dynamic sorter to switch<br />

between runs of the two cereal<br />

Conveyors move<br />

tricky mattresses<br />

Astec has supplied a range of non-standard conveyors for mattress handling<br />

Anyone who has ever<br />

moved a mattress<br />

knows how difficult it<br />

is to man handle due to the<br />

awkward size and weight.<br />

However, Astec Conveyors<br />

has addressed this problem<br />

by providing various<br />

non-standard conveyors<br />

to automate and improve<br />

operator ergonomics in<br />

handling a broad range of<br />

mattress styles and sizes.<br />

Keeping continuous<br />

mattress assembly lines<br />

on schedule and running<br />

smoothly is a top priority for<br />

sleep product manufacturers,<br />

where the operators may have<br />

to manually carry out a series<br />

of mattress movements during<br />

the process. These can include<br />

transferring sideways, turning<br />

through 90 degrees and<br />

turning over completely onto<br />

the opposite side.<br />

Some years back,<br />

the Health and Safety<br />

Executive instigated a<br />

three-year initiative with<br />

bed manufacturers and the<br />

National Bed Federation to<br />

focus on manual handling<br />

risk factors with the aim<br />

of reducing the number of<br />

musculoskeletal injuries<br />

in the industry. A final report<br />

suggested that a reduction in<br />

musculoskeletal injuries over<br />

a period could be partially<br />

attributed to the introduction<br />

of mechanical handling aids.<br />

Astec designed,<br />

manufactured and installed<br />

a series of bespoke conveyors<br />

for the industry to address<br />

these needs. They are<br />

generally at least 2,000mm<br />

wide for various assembly<br />

lines at a leading UK mattress<br />

manufacturer. Astec’s<br />

bespoke conveyors included<br />

turntables, reversible belt<br />

conveyors with inbuilt<br />

tracking, side transfer units,<br />

automated turn over units and<br />

combined press/belt conveyor<br />

assemblies.<br />

Eliminating the manual<br />

handling of mattresses<br />

and integrating equipment<br />

into a system has made it<br />

more ergonomically safe for<br />

the operator and has also<br />

increased plant productivity.<br />

Astec Conveyors says this<br />

technology can be applied to<br />

other large products that are<br />

sometimes difficult for the<br />

operators to man handle.<br />

System mitigates any<br />

product effect on line<br />

The Bury Black Pudding<br />

Company has embraced<br />

the latest developments<br />

from Mettler-Toledo Product<br />

Inspection to protect its<br />

long-established reputation as<br />

demand for its product ranges<br />

increases. Using a family<br />

recipe that dates back over<br />

100 years, the award-winning<br />

company vigorously protects<br />

its reputation for high quality<br />

and consistent taste.<br />

The Bury Black Pudding<br />

Company’s first experience<br />

with Mettler-Toledo Product<br />

Inspection was an HDS metal<br />

detection system, which was<br />

specified to check clipped<br />

black and white pudding<br />

products prior to filling.<br />

High levels of detection<br />

sensitivity and equipment<br />

stability, combined with<br />

ease of use, allowed the HDS<br />

solution to be fully integrated<br />

with the existing Handtmann<br />

vacuum filling machine on<br />

the production line.<br />

The HDS system can be fully<br />

stripped down and is sealed to<br />

IP69K, making it ideal for the<br />

harsh washdown conditions<br />

Petfood producer Wagg<br />

Foods has increased its OEE<br />

efficiency by 30%, secured<br />

its packaging lines from errors<br />

and ensured full compliance<br />

with retailer codes of practice<br />

with OAL Connected, a<br />

modular suite of packaging<br />

line software.<br />

The company was attracted<br />

to the OAL Connected system<br />

as it offers label and date code<br />

verification with the option to<br />

easily expand functionality.<br />

At its core, the automated<br />

system verifies the labels,<br />

As a BRC certified company, it is essential that equipment meets safety needs<br />

that it is subjected to during<br />

each product changeover.<br />

As demand for black<br />

pudding rings increased,<br />

including larger packs and<br />

frozen products, the company<br />

installed a Profile Advantage<br />

system from Mettler to assure<br />

quality while mitigating any<br />

‘product effect’.<br />

The system detects irregular<br />

shaped metal contaminants<br />

up to 50% smaller in such<br />

challenging applications.<br />

Having been impressed<br />

with the product trials<br />

A bespoke system was devised<br />

Cereals are<br />

now cooler<br />

in processing<br />

Silvery Tweed Cereals has<br />

completed a bespoke project to<br />

upgrade the cooling capabilities<br />

of its flaking line in conjunction<br />

with local engineering company<br />

FEG. This £250,000 project is<br />

the culmination of 12 month’s<br />

work which is today, delivering<br />

a 51% reduction in pre-pack<br />

temperatures in comparison<br />

with the old line.<br />

The drive and justification for<br />

this project was to reduce pre-pack<br />

temperatures, reduce floor waste,<br />

simplify cleaning and remove the<br />

danger of long term breakdown.<br />

Silvery Tweed wanted to move<br />

away from the industry standard<br />

of drying, cooling conveyors<br />

which use individual slats on a<br />

chain drive. This element is what<br />

took most of the time as the<br />

cereals producer had to find an<br />

engineering company that was<br />

up to the task.<br />

FEG rose to the challenge and<br />

has delivered on all expectations<br />

of the food company’s brief.<br />

At the same time, FEG<br />

upgraded the process control of<br />

the line to give more operator<br />

flexibility in managing line<br />

speeds, product depths, and<br />

dust extraction along with<br />

refrigeration airflow.<br />

The line is already delivering<br />

substantial savings on floor waste<br />

and in turn increasing output.<br />

It proved nearly impossible to score<br />

Visitors tested their<br />

skills against a robot<br />

controlled goalie<br />

Visitors were happy to take<br />

a break from seeing the<br />

350 exhibitors during the<br />

three day event by testing<br />

their footballing skills in the<br />

RoboKeeper challenge.<br />

Sponsored by Omron, the<br />

feature saw hundreds of<br />

participants attempting to<br />

beat the computer-controlled<br />

goalkeeper with queues<br />

forming most days. Despite<br />

these numbers, only 26 people<br />

managed to get the ball in<br />

the back of the net. This is<br />

because RoboKeeper uses<br />

cutting-edge robotics and<br />

vision technology to make it<br />

almost impossible to score.<br />

Dan Rossek of Omron was<br />

delighted with the feature<br />

and the show. “It’s a great<br />

platform for meeting the right<br />

quality of people,” he said.<br />

engineer is important<br />

for the industry’s future<br />

Looking beyond the<br />

manufacturing sector,<br />

the PPMA Show <strong>2017</strong><br />

to talk about the charity’s<br />

plans to support PPMA,<br />

BARA and UKIVA member<br />

companies to engage with the<br />

next generation of engineering<br />

apprentices and graduates.<br />

During his presentation,<br />

Paramount Packaging Systems,<br />

the UK and Ireland’s exclusive<br />

distributor of Fuji’s horizontal and<br />

vertical form-fill-seal equipment,<br />

were delighted to be able to<br />

launch its Alpha 8 horizontal flow<br />

wrapper at this year’s event.<br />

The Alpha 8 is Fuji’s nextgeneration<br />

packaging machine<br />

and its high speed box motion<br />

model, able to produce 400<br />

hermetically sealed packs a<br />

minute, is billed as the fastest<br />

box motion machine on the<br />

market today.<br />

“Once again Fuji raised the<br />

bar with the launch of the latest<br />

of the Alpha series, the Alpha 8,<br />

says operations manager<br />

at Paramount Darren Bull.<br />

“This new wrapper offers<br />

many new and exciting features<br />

which we believe will be of huge<br />

benefit to all new and existing<br />

customers.”<br />

Sales director, Aaron Bessell<br />

agrees. “We were delighted to<br />

attend the PPMA Show to reveal<br />

the new Alpha 8 to our UK & Irish<br />

customers,” he said.<br />

“We saw a fourfold increase<br />

in the number of customers to<br />

the stand and there have been<br />

a record number of enquiries<br />

following the launch.”<br />

THE PPMA SHOW WAS VERY SUCCESSFUL FOR MDS<br />

Order secured during event<br />

MDS was delighted to see another PPMA Show where a system was<br />

bought from the stand itself - a well-known UK biscuit manufacturer<br />

purchased the MS21 highly sensitive metal detector (pictured). Due to its<br />

multi-spectrum technology, this machine is particularly effective for wet<br />

conductive products and products which are packaged in metallised film.<br />

The show was another great<br />

success for WIPOTEC-OCS<br />

(formerly OCS Checkweighers),<br />

according to Ingolf Latz.<br />

“We have spoken to a huge<br />

amount of visitors, each one<br />

leaving with an excellent<br />

impression of the special<br />

features and flexibility<br />

the WIPOTEC-OCS range<br />

of product inspection &<br />

serialisation kit,” he says.<br />

The 5-in-1 WIPOTEC TQS-<br />

HC-A-TE serialisation solution<br />

was also well received. Simple<br />

to use and with a footprint of<br />

only 1.8m, pharmaceutical<br />

manufacturers have reliable<br />

and varied functions that are<br />

all integrated into one HMI.<br />

PPMA Show Review<br />

Smart light collar enables<br />

users to see a cobot status<br />

Collaborative working<br />

between operator and<br />

robot has been taken<br />

to a new level thanks to an<br />

accessory launched at the<br />

PPMA Show by RARUK<br />

Automation. YouRing is a<br />

smart, programmable device<br />

which can easily be mounted<br />

to the robot tool flange to<br />

give visual and audible<br />

information on robot status.<br />

Wireless connectivity and<br />

the URCaps plug-in that is<br />

supplied with the YouRing<br />

makes this neat and clever<br />

device easy to install; URCaps<br />

is the accessory platform that<br />

enables full integration into<br />

Polyscope, the UR GUI for robot<br />

programming and operation.<br />

YouRing can then be freely<br />

programmed to meet the<br />

needs of the application and<br />

the operator.<br />

As well as indicating the<br />

direction of travel, YouRing<br />

can work to a user selectable<br />

safety plan and, for example<br />

communicate when an<br />

object has been grasped or<br />

assembled correctly or when<br />

tolerance needs to be checked.<br />

Pacepacker compared its<br />

new pallet stacking software<br />

against more traditional<br />

robot teach pendants to show<br />

visitors how customers are<br />

already cutting the time<br />

it takes to reprogram a new<br />

pallet stack recipe by over<br />

400% while reducing waste<br />

caused by badly stacked<br />

delivery pallets by 10%.<br />

Writing the programming<br />

code to modify a palletising<br />

stack format using a robot<br />

teach pendant can involve<br />

more than 30 individual<br />

The new light collar allows easy working between the operator and the cobot<br />

A rainbow pallet and a<br />

choice of coloured LEDs can<br />

be assigned to different tasks<br />

which can also flash and<br />

create a rotating effect that<br />

follows the movement of the<br />

arm. Similarly, the pitch,<br />

volume and frequency of the<br />

buzzer can be adjusted for<br />

various warning functions.<br />

Buttons on YouRing enable<br />

the free-drive mode to be<br />

selected and execute specific<br />

script functions such as<br />

turn on a digital output or<br />

manually re-activate the robot<br />

after a task has been paused.<br />

Latest stacking software was pitted against<br />

robot teach pendants to prove time savings<br />

jogging and coordinated<br />

recording steps on a standard<br />

5 fold pattern. With many<br />

food factories performing<br />

20+ recipe/stack changes<br />

weekly, this trial and error<br />

process has long been a drain<br />

on resources and production<br />

time, resulting in frequent<br />

regular engineering callouts.<br />

Pallet+ enables factory<br />

operatives to change, store and<br />

recall new or revised robotic<br />

palletising and case loading<br />

recipes in several minutes<br />

versus over an hour with<br />

usual robot teach pendants.<br />

What’s more, it requires little<br />

First time<br />

visit seen as<br />

a success<br />

“This is the first time we have<br />

attended the PPMA show and it<br />

was an enormous success,” says<br />

Mitsubishi Electric marketing &<br />

operations group manager Chris<br />

Evans. “Mitsubishi Electric’s<br />

solutions for the packaging<br />

industry address the full spectrum<br />

of challenges facing the sector and<br />

meet the needs of both machine<br />

builders and end users,” he<br />

continues. “Machine builders can<br />

reduce development times with<br />

improving functionality, while end<br />

users benefit from machines that<br />

increase productivity.”<br />

Visitors to the stand were<br />

able to learn about Mitsubishi<br />

Electric’s commitment to the<br />

OMAC PackML standard, with<br />

demonstrations showing how<br />

it brings benefits to machine<br />

builders and end users alike.<br />

Machine builders are increasingly<br />

being asked to offer PackML<br />

standardisation by packaging<br />

customers, who see it as the<br />

key to higher machine OEE with<br />

faster throughput, faster product<br />

changeovers and less scrap.<br />

Mitsubishi Electric also showed<br />

how it has invested in making<br />

it easy to adopt the standard<br />

by offering templates that are<br />

PackML ready, saving time and<br />

cost in system development.<br />

These include pre-defined HMI<br />

templates and ready-made<br />

function blocks to speed up<br />

configuration.<br />

Checkweigher combines<br />

hygiene with high speed<br />

The hygienic design<br />

features of the Flexus<br />

Highspeed demonstrated<br />

by Minebea Intec have been<br />

systematically enhanced since<br />

the initial launch last year.<br />

This latest Flexus features<br />

hygienic design right down<br />

to the finest detail, and also<br />

offers faster processing speeds<br />

to customers.<br />

In operation, the in-line<br />

checkweigher now reliably<br />

checks the weight of small<br />

packaged foods such as<br />

tinned fish, yoghurt or<br />

snacks at high speed. It offers<br />

processing speeds of up to<br />

2.6 metres a second, opening<br />

up new possibilities in the<br />

food industry in terms of<br />

economy. “The success of our<br />

in-line checkweigher Flexus<br />

has shown us that hygienic<br />

design is right at the cutting<br />

edge,” says Stefanie Dahmen,<br />

product manager inspection<br />

at the company. “Therefore,<br />

when optimising the hygienic<br />

design of Flexus, it was clear<br />

that we needed to consider<br />

both product innovation and<br />

product diversification.<br />

The Flexus Highspeed was demonstrated<br />

“The new Flexus Highspeed<br />

is our response to the<br />

demand for a checkweigher<br />

specifically for weighing<br />

smaller products quickly<br />

and we are anticipating<br />

high demand in the 1kg<br />

weighing range, and<br />

higher speeds in the<br />

weighing range up to<br />

7kg are, of course also<br />

possible.”<br />

All checkweighers in<br />

the Flexus range have<br />

been developed according<br />

to the EHEDG hygienic<br />

design guidelines, in<br />

order to comply with the<br />

strict hygiene standards<br />

in the food industry.<br />

As a result, contact<br />

surfaces and horizontal<br />

surfaces have been<br />

minimised, and the need<br />

for hollowed sections has<br />

been eliminated due to<br />

the open frame.<br />

Together with<br />

the increased floor<br />

clearance, hygienic feet<br />

and a hygienic box for<br />

the pneumatics, the<br />

checkweighers guarantee<br />

straightforward<br />

inspection and quick and<br />

reliable cleaning.<br />

PPMA Show Review<br />

Seal options offer quick<br />

and easy upgrade choice<br />

Winkworth<br />

introduced<br />

Multigland<br />

at the show, an<br />

innovation designed<br />

to allow its customers<br />

to be flexible and agile<br />

while continuing to<br />

use mixing machines<br />

that they have been<br />

using successfully for<br />

decades.<br />

Multigland is<br />

a purpose built<br />

platform design that is<br />

incorporated into the<br />

end plate of a standard<br />

ribbon blender. It is<br />

designed to take in the<br />

first instance, the low cost<br />

proven and industry accepted<br />

gland packing approach,<br />

but with the added benefit of<br />

pre machining in readiness<br />

for an upgrade to leading<br />

mechanical seal designs<br />

which are supported<br />

worldwide. The Cinch seal<br />

and Impro Air Miser seal are<br />

catered for.<br />

These preparations allow<br />

the owner of the mixer to take<br />

advantage of the upgrade<br />

Multigland offers mixer users a futureproof design<br />

possibility at some time in<br />

the future – whether in two<br />

or twenty years. In practice,<br />

customers are able to move<br />

their business forward as<br />

demands change without<br />

the need to replace the whole<br />

machine, without the need<br />

to have major disruption of<br />

the replacement process and<br />

without the need to install<br />

a second line to manage the<br />

new demands.<br />

“In short, this is a major<br />

step forward in asset<br />

protection and versatility<br />

and flexibility in<br />

ownership,” says Grant<br />

Jamieson, managing<br />

director of Winkworth.<br />

This new product is<br />

particularly suitable for<br />

powder blending as very<br />

often, a determining<br />

factor in the choice of<br />

machine is associated<br />

with clean down practices<br />

and the frequency of<br />

changing from one recipe<br />

or formula to another.<br />

Cross contamination<br />

in some environments<br />

is a major concern,<br />

for instance, while changes<br />

in regulations can also have<br />

a bearing.<br />

“We have seen a number of<br />

successful companies being<br />

forced to respond to regulatory<br />

and assurance changes and our<br />

innovation in design is aimed<br />

at fully protecting their asset,”<br />

says Jamieson. “We believe<br />

we’ve designed for today and<br />

are ready for tomorrow.”<br />

All-in-one verification<br />

offers food sector gain<br />

A<br />

system that combines<br />

multi-parameter product<br />

verification from a small<br />

footprint has been developed<br />

by Dimaco (UK) and Starflex<br />

Packaging Europe.<br />

Called the Veri-WEIGH,<br />

the new machine overcomes<br />

a set of problems that have<br />

existed in the food industry<br />

for some time. Namely, how<br />

to checkweigh, verify the label<br />

and check the seal of food<br />

products on a single machine<br />

– traditionally, of course, these<br />

functions have each been<br />

carried out on separate units.<br />

And even where physical<br />

space to fit all this kit isn’t an<br />

issue, data sharing between<br />

them often was.<br />

By creating a close<br />

partnership between the<br />

two companies, it has been<br />

possible to develop this single<br />

machine that is not only<br />

physically small but, says<br />

Dimaco’s Russell Sion, one<br />

that is greater than the sum<br />

of its parts. “This is due to its<br />

ability to share both product<br />

specification data and realtime<br />

results,” he says.<br />

The Veri-WEIGH<br />

verification unit was<br />

seen at the exhibition<br />

for the first time<br />

Dimaco has used its unique<br />

set of algorithms which are<br />

billed as allowing best in class<br />

label inspection on rotated and<br />

distorted labels. In addition<br />

to this inspection software,<br />

the company has also<br />

developed its Veri-CENTRAL<br />

database which is capable of<br />

being fully integrated into a<br />

food processing company’s<br />

production system.<br />

Indeed, this database was<br />

the key to allowing the check<br />

weigher and vision system<br />

to share production and<br />

inspection data in real time.<br />

A machine was therefore<br />

designed to support the<br />

competing needs of load cells<br />

and cameras so that neither<br />

inspection was compromised.<br />

Automation technologies offer<br />

factory of the future production<br />

ABB showcased its<br />

range of automation<br />

technologies, targeting all<br />

industries including food and<br />

beverage and pharmaceuticals<br />

and a host of applications<br />

from picking, packing and<br />

palletising to pumps, fans,<br />

compressors and mixers.<br />

The stand reflected ABB’s<br />

broad portfolio including<br />

robots, variable speed drives,<br />

motors, distributed control<br />

systems, programmable<br />

logic controllers, switch gear<br />

and cable ties.<br />

Under the theme of<br />

‘smart manufacturing’,<br />

ABB demonstrated how<br />

its products, systems and<br />

services use digitalisation to<br />

improve energy efficiency and<br />

enhance overall equipment<br />

effectiveness while helping to<br />

fulfil regulatory compliance.<br />

ABB’s family of table<br />

top SCARA offers new<br />

opportunities for automated<br />

materials handling and<br />

inspection applications.<br />

Offering fast and accurate<br />

performance and capable of<br />

handling payloads up to 6kg,<br />

The robot cell demonstrated short cycle times, accuracy and high payload<br />

it incorporates the same<br />

high performance and design<br />

concepts as ABB’s other small<br />

robots, including superior<br />

path control and accuracy in<br />

a small footprint.<br />

The SCARA worked<br />

alongside ABB’s dual-armed<br />

collaborative robot YuMi.<br />

Meanwhile, ABB’s FlexPicker<br />

robot cell, comprising two<br />

ABB FlexPicker IRB 360 robots<br />

with integrated colour vision<br />

technology, can perform<br />

120 picks per minute.<br />

The IRB 360 offers motion<br />

performance with short cycle<br />

times, precision accuracy and<br />

high payloads.<br />

ABB is one of the only<br />

companies that makes both<br />

variable speed drives and<br />

low voltage AC motors, and<br />

as such, believes it is well<br />

equipped to offer customers<br />

a perfectly designed, tested<br />

and approved matched pair,<br />

for whatever the motor-driven<br />

application. For instance, an<br />

ATEX approved AC motor and<br />

drive combination gives safe,<br />

economic power combined<br />

with effective control.<br />

ABB also launched its IEC<br />

stainless steel wash down<br />

motor that complies with strict<br />

hygiene standards along with<br />

its Ability Smart Sensor for<br />

motors which is a pocket-sized<br />

device that is retrofitted to the<br />

New mid-range multihead<br />

weigher for loose product<br />

Yamato Scale Dataweigh<br />

UK launched a midrange<br />

multihead<br />

weighing machine.<br />

Called Epsilon, it is<br />

designed specifically for the<br />

cost effective weighing and<br />

packaging of loose products.<br />

This new Dataweigh<br />

Epsilon series of combination<br />

weighers brings together<br />

the best features of the<br />

Sigma Series and Yamato’s<br />

intelligent Omega series in<br />

a single affordable machine<br />

while increasing the weighing<br />

options available.<br />

“We are convinced that<br />

the multihead weighers in<br />

this series will revolutionise<br />

the weighing and packaging<br />

of loose products across<br />

a variety of sectors,” said<br />

Andrea Spencer, commercial<br />

operations manager for<br />

Yamato Scale Dataweigh UK.<br />

“The new series delivers<br />

excellent performance at<br />

an affordable price and it<br />

can handle a wide range of<br />

products without sacrificing<br />

speed or accuracy.”<br />

Yamato says that<br />

maintaining the new machine<br />

is easy. Buckets and linear<br />

feeder pans can be simply<br />

removed and re-attached<br />

without tools and an autoinhibit<br />

function allows<br />

The Epsilon series of weighers can be networked with other devices<br />

buckets to be removed<br />

without stopping the weigher,<br />

therefore reducing downtime.<br />

Intrinsically hygienic and<br />

safe in structure, it is IP 66<br />

compliant – making it ideal<br />

for harsh environments.<br />

The buckets have large<br />

radius corners which make<br />

the weigher easy and quick<br />

to clean, also reducing<br />

downtime. And the machine is<br />

robust, with load cells that can<br />

withstand loads of up to 150kg.<br />

Operating the new weigher<br />

is also straightforward.<br />

A 10.4in colour touch screen<br />

displays user-friendly icons<br />

to allow effortless operation,<br />

Labels can be applied<br />

in cost effective ways<br />

Approved Toshiba TEC reseller<br />

Norpak showcased the APLEX4 at<br />

the exhibition, a low cost automatic<br />

label print and application system that<br />

combines high performance and cost<br />

effectiveness.<br />

“As the exclusive UK distributor of<br />

this cutting edge label applicator, we are<br />

perfectly positioned to highlight why it<br />

is suitable for a wide variety of industrial<br />

and manufacturing based environments<br />

thanks to its design, performance<br />

and low cost of ownership,” explains<br />

sales manager at Norpak Gary Day.<br />

“Furthermore, we highlighted how we<br />

have made an exciting innovation to the<br />

product, which will benefit an even wider<br />

range of companies.”<br />

APLEX4 has the<br />

ability to accommodate<br />

in-line operation with<br />

thermal transfer and<br />

direct thermal media,<br />

making it suitable<br />

for even the most<br />

demanding environments.<br />

It can handle production<br />

levels of up to 30 labels<br />

per minute and is available<br />

in resolutions of 200, 300<br />

and 600 dpi.<br />

With an in-built backlit<br />

LCD graphical user interface,<br />

The APLEX4 label applicator<br />

was demonstrated at the show<br />

access to information and settings<br />

is simple and the APLEX4 can be set to<br />

apply labels from the top, bottom or sides<br />

and at any rotation angle required.<br />

In addition, it can seamlessly integrate<br />

into existing legacy systems, without the<br />

need to modify a host system’s hardware<br />

or software.<br />

After consultation with customers,<br />

Norpak has also configured APLEX4<br />

as a semi-automated<br />

system by integrating<br />

a footswitch. Manually<br />

pressing the footswitch<br />

triggers the system to<br />

run through its cycle<br />

– printing a label and<br />

dispensing it to the<br />

vacuum pad, which comes<br />

down and affixes the<br />

label on to the product.<br />

Labels are printed on an<br />

‘as needed’ basis, meaning<br />

that they print one at a<br />

time and a specific job can<br />

be cancelled at any point<br />

in the process.<br />

“This can significantly<br />

reduce the amount of<br />

wastage incurred,”<br />

This introduction<br />

has FMD top tips<br />

and new products<br />

In the PPMA Show Learning<br />

Hub in September the UK sales<br />

manager at Crest Solutions<br />

Dan Anslow talked about<br />

the realities of implementing<br />

solutions for serialisation,<br />

aggregation and track & trace and<br />

shared some top tips to achieving<br />

compliance with the European<br />

Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD).<br />

Remember, the regulation deadline<br />

is February 9, 2019 and pertains<br />

specifically to the lowest saleable<br />

item of prescription medicine,<br />

which requires a unique reference<br />

number or ‘Serialisation Number’<br />

which is displayed as human<br />

readable text and embedded within<br />

a 2D matrix. The carton or bottle<br />

must also contain anti-tamper<br />

evidence.<br />

Anslow said that the three<br />

key components of successful<br />

serialisation implementation are<br />

stakeholder engagement; vendor<br />

selection and relationship; and<br />

staff training.<br />

He also talked about things to<br />

watch out for on the journey towards<br />

FMD compliance. These are:<br />

• Ensure your team is on board,<br />

and that all the relevant<br />

stakeholders and teams have<br />

a clear understanding of the<br />

scale and impact of the project<br />

to be undertaken<br />

• When selecting a vendor, consider<br />

location and their ability to<br />

support your site on the ground<br />

• As regulations in this sector<br />

are evolving, technology can<br />

be immature and, with the<br />

best of intentions, vendors can<br />

sometimes over-promise<br />

• Visits to reference sites for other<br />

customers who have already<br />

implemented a particular<br />

technology are a must<br />

• Your team of line operators will<br />

appreciate an understanding and<br />

training in this technology.<br />

At the same time, equipment<br />

that has been designed for<br />

compressed air tablets is<br />

now available from Piab in the<br />

form of vacuum conveyors.<br />

vacuum plays a key role<br />

The company believes that vacuum<br />

automation technologies can play<br />

a key role in streamlining tablet<br />

production. By taking the right<br />

precautions in installing a reliable,<br />

efficient vacuum conveying system,<br />

manufacturers can increase<br />

productivity, reduce breakages,<br />

costs and energy usage as well as<br />

improving work environments,<br />

enabling them to compete better in<br />

a competitive industry.<br />

Ensure that your team and<br />

all relevant stakeholders are on<br />

board with any new FMD plan<br />

Particle separation prior to tablet<br />

compression, as a result of gravity<br />

and particle characteristics, as<br />

well as external factors such as<br />

airflow and vibration, known<br />

as segregation, can threaten the<br />

integrity of drug dosages and<br />

jeopardise the uniformity of the<br />

batch. By handling the material<br />

at a controlled speed, vacuum<br />

conveyors can ensure the<br />

material remains blended and<br />

significantly reduces the risk of<br />

segregation, says Piab.<br />

Meanwhile, Ytron-Quadro (UK)<br />

is now offering a new patented<br />

design of rotor-stator from<br />

VMI. It offers more efficient<br />

dispersion of powders without<br />

losing any product. Thanks to the<br />

pre-dispersion/powder’s wetting<br />

phase and to the finer dispersion<br />

and emulsion phase, there is no<br />

risk of particle agglomeration or<br />

powder projection through the<br />

liquid phase.<br />

Medical<br />

devices are<br />

next in line<br />

With the deadline set in place to comply<br />

with the mandatory requirements of the EU<br />

regulations relating to medical devices, we<br />

talk to Domino about what this all means<br />

Manufacturers of anything<br />

from contact lenses to<br />

pacemakers have now been<br />

given a time frame to ensure<br />

they have all the affected<br />

areas of their business covered, including<br />

product identification, to comply with<br />

the EU MDR (European Medical Device<br />

Regulation).<br />

To help them along this road to<br />

compliance, Domino has just produced<br />

a comprehensive white paper which<br />

is available from the company free of<br />

charge. This highlights the multiple<br />

aspects to take into consideration in<br />

order to select the coding and marking<br />

system that is best suited for a business.<br />

These aspects include substrates and<br />

materials, production volume and data<br />

management, to name but a few.<br />

MANAGE YOUR TIME FRAMES<br />

More importantly, says the report,<br />

manufacturers need to manage their<br />

time frames as effectively as possible and<br />

act now as sufficient time needs to be<br />

allowed to test solutions and potentially<br />

make the necessary adjustments to<br />

manage the new coding requirements.<br />

As background, under the FDA (Food<br />

& Drug Administration) rule in the USA,<br />

manufacturers have been required<br />

to implement UDI (unique device<br />

identification) on all medical product<br />

packaging since 2014. Following this,<br />

European manufacturers of medical<br />

devices will face tougher regulations<br />

to ensure their products are safe to use<br />

under the new EU laws that are<br />

scheduled to come into effect on 26 May,<br />

2020 onwards.<br />

Domino says that in terms of coding<br />

and marking, the lessons learnt by the<br />

company in the US market can be easily<br />

transferred to the European one as<br />

there is some overlap between FDA and<br />

EU MDR requirements. The company’s<br />

Global Life Sciences division shares<br />

market information across the company’s<br />

channels to raise awareness surrounding<br />

medical devices, as well as the wider<br />

requirements of the medical sector.<br />

The new regulation will also see the<br />

introduction of a new unique device<br />

identification system, similar to the US.<br />

This means that, for traceability<br />

It is advances in<br />

medical devices that<br />

has prompted change<br />

Device advances have led to the new EU rules<br />

purposes, medical devices sold in EU<br />

member states will need to include a<br />

code, also known as a unique device<br />

identifier, of which the details will be<br />

recorded in an EU database.<br />

With these laws coming into effect,<br />

manufacturers now have a legal<br />

responsibility to invest in a solution that<br />

allows them to apply traceability codes<br />

onto products as well as their packaging.<br />

The classification of medical devices<br />

is very similar to the US classification<br />

but there are some minor differences.<br />

Manufacturers will have to determine<br />

what category of medical devices each<br />

of their products belongs to, based on<br />

article 51 and Annex VIII of the EU MDR<br />

in which 22 rules are defined to help<br />

classify each product.<br />

Each class will have different time<br />

frames for compliance.<br />

Looking at the coding and marking<br />

requirements, there are a few<br />

considerable differences between the

Pacemakers are included in regulations<br />

The white paper helps manufacturers prepare for the upcoming EU medical device regulation<br />

FDA regulation and Europe. For example,<br />

the CE logo and the letters ‘MD’ need to<br />

appear in a designated square on each<br />

label to indicate that an item is a medical<br />

device. Manufacturers can decide to print<br />

all the data or have some of the static data<br />

pre-printed.<br />

Some products will be very similar,<br />

but only vary in size or name. In this<br />

case, it is recommended to not use preprinted<br />

labels and print both the static<br />

and variable data to avoid mistakes and<br />

to minimise stock costs.<br />

The variable data – the UDI-PI<br />

(UDI-Production Identifier) – has to be<br />

printed on the lowest packaging level.<br />

The current rules relating to the safety<br />

and performance of medical devices in<br />

the EU date back to the 1990s. However,<br />

it is the substantial scientific and<br />

technological advances in the medical<br />

sector that have taken place since their<br />

implementation that has prompted the<br />

EU Commission to update the rules.<br />

The role of coding and marking in the<br />

medical sector is a good one. Codes on<br />

medical devices results in more efficient<br />

product recall procedures, the reduction<br />

of medical errors, as well as increased<br />

inventory visibility and supply chain<br />

security. The unique codes are crucial to<br />

unlocking the so-called ‘chain of custody’<br />

in the event of a recall.<br />

Failure to comply with the new<br />

legislation will have negative<br />

repercussions on manufacturers as they<br />

will no longer be able to supply their<br />

products to other EU member states.<br />

Fee payers and healthcare providers will<br />

not accept devices without UDI codes that<br />

are up to the required standard.<br />

As a result, manufacturers now face a<br />

responsibility to familiarise themselves<br />

with the exact requirements of the<br />

legislation and ensure they have a coding<br />

and marking solution in place.<br />

Domino’s white paper outlines all of<br />

the coding and marking technologies<br />

available to the medical sector for<br />

primary, secondary and tertiary<br />

packaging to help medical device<br />

manufacturers tackle compliance<br />

issues. By taking action ahead of the<br />

deadline and partnering with a reliable<br />

supplier and partner that can provide<br />

the guidance and industry knowledge<br />

required, compliance can be successfully<br />

achieved, says the company.<br />

Every day, 1.6 million<br />

people in the UK<br />

visit a pharmacy<br />

and about 1 billion<br />

medicines are<br />

dispensed from community<br />

pharmacies every year.<br />

In addition, thousands more<br />

patients receive medication<br />

dispensed from hospital<br />

pharmacies every 24 hours.<br />

The task to produce Falsified<br />

Medicines Directive (FMD)<br />

compliant packaging is well<br />

underway however, with<br />

these enormous quantities<br />

of medicines making their<br />

way through the supply<br />

chain every year, the biggest<br />

challenge still to overcome<br />

for many, is how to manage<br />

the resource hungry task<br />

of capturing the data.<br />

Especially as the FMD<br />

deadline of February 9, 2019<br />

is just around the corner.<br />

“This is where machine<br />

vision has a vast and exciting<br />

role to play,” argues Patrick<br />

Robinson who is responsible<br />

for healthcare solutions at<br />

Datalogic UK.<br />

Datalogic’s machine vision<br />

technology has been used<br />

to develop an automated<br />

pharmaceutical sorting<br />

machine that enables fully<br />

traceable, error-free storage<br />

and retrieval of medicines.<br />

Medicines can be sorted into<br />

the machine in any order, are<br />

then reliably detected and<br />

automatically stored.<br />

The system uses four of<br />

Datalogic’s Matrix 410<br />

cameras and software,<br />

developed by Datalogic<br />

partner MACH4, to capture<br />

images of the medication<br />

boxes and scan the barcode<br />

or the 2D data matrix codes.<br />

Handheld devices are also offered<br />

Datalogic’s machine vision technology has been used to develop an automated pharmaceutical sorting machine<br />

that enables fully traceable, error-free storage and retrieval of medicines that also works on production lines<br />

Track with<br />

confidence<br />

Machinery Update talks to Datalogic about the role its<br />

vision technology plays in ensuring FMD compliance<br />

Due to the large reading<br />

field of the 2-megapixel<br />

matrix camera, packs of<br />

medication can be placed<br />

into the order-picking system<br />

in any orientation. The four<br />

integrated cameras analyse<br />

each pack from all sides to<br />

identify codes – a procedure<br />

that saves employees in<br />

pharmacies and hospitals<br />

huge amounts of time and<br />

reduces the risk of picking<br />

incorrect items.<br />

The Matrix 410 camera<br />

combines image capture,<br />

decoding and communication<br />

and also recognises damaged<br />

codes thanks to the capture<br />

of photographs. Despite the<br />

high reading speed, reliable<br />

recognition is ensured<br />

especially with 2D codes<br />

and direct product marking,<br />

says Robinson.<br />

CAMERAS ARE FLEXIBLE<br />

In addition to conventional<br />

barcodes, the camera also<br />

decodes postcodes, batch<br />

codes and 2D data matrix<br />

codes and then transmits<br />

the images to the software<br />

in real-time. Depending on<br />

the size and requirements<br />

of a pharmacy or a hospital,<br />

different machine formats<br />

and sizes are available which<br />

can hold 1,200 to 60,000<br />

medicines. Using this fully<br />

automated process, up to<br />

100 packs of medicine can be<br />

stored in just three minutes,<br />

manual effort is reduced to<br />

a minimum and the error rate<br />

is virtually zero.<br />

To date, more than 1,200<br />

MACH4 pharmaceutical<br />

sorting machines have been<br />

installed worldwide including<br />

a number of installations at<br />

technology can yield similar<br />

benefits.<br />

On the production line,<br />

cameras integrated with<br />

image and optical character<br />

recognition software can<br />

identify packaging and read<br />

alphanumeric strings such as<br />

batch numbers on different<br />

packaging types. The system<br />

is capable of providing realtime<br />

feedback to the controller<br />

to confirm that certain<br />

information is present and<br />

readable on the package, such<br />

as a 2D data matrix code.<br />

If necessary, strings or serial<br />

numbers can be read several<br />

times so that even print errors<br />

on packaging are detected.<br />

The software also has the<br />

potential to recognise if the<br />

tamper evident feature is<br />

present on the packaging<br />

to ensure compliance with<br />

this element of the directive.<br />

How-to video<br />

of titanium<br />

dioxide uses<br />

Silverson Machines has released a<br />

‘how-to’ video demonstrating methods<br />

of easily and efficiently dispersing<br />

titanium dioxide, solving an ongoing<br />

need for the chemical, personal care<br />

and pharmaceutical industries.<br />

Titanium dioxide comes in<br />

pre-micronised powder form, but the<br />

particles tend to reagglomerate when added<br />

to water. Conventional mixers cannot break<br />

these agglomerates down and therefore<br />

cannot obtain the fine particle size needed<br />

to give products such as pill coatings or<br />

lotions, maximum opacity and gloss.<br />

Silverson says its precision-engineered<br />

mixers offer positive high shear mixing that<br />

will rapidly disperse the pigment to give a<br />

uniform, agglomerate-free dispersion.<br />

OUTLINING OPERATIONAL GAINS<br />

First, the mixer’s rotor/stator workhead<br />

draws the powder and liquid into the centre<br />

of the workhead at high speed. Centrifugal<br />

force then drives the materials to the<br />

periphery of the workhead where they are<br />

subjected to a milling action in the precision<br />

clearance between the tip of the rotator<br />

blade and the inner wall of the stator.<br />

“That intense mechanical shear breaks<br />

down any agglomerates, and then projects<br />

them back into the body of the mix in a<br />

circulatory pattern,” says Matt Smith,<br />

international sales director at Silverson.<br />

“With each successive pass through the<br />

workhead, their size is progressively<br />

reduced, and the result is a fine, uniform<br />

and agglomerate-free dispersion.”<br />

The company offers a number of<br />

solutions for titanium dioxide dispersion:<br />

high-speed batch mixers for small<br />

volumes such as tablet coatings and<br />

other specialist products, and in-line<br />

mixers that can be used in a self-pumping<br />

recirculation system for intensive and<br />

targeted high shear on larger batches.<br />

To showcase these mixers and other<br />

precision-engineered solutions the<br />

company offers, Silverson has created<br />

a series of ‘How-To’ videos. These videos<br />

including the high-speed dispersion of<br />

titanium dioxide can be viewed in the<br />

Glass vials are<br />

handled faster<br />

The system can accurately fill both large and<br />

small amounts of pharmaceutical powders<br />

Bosch Packaging Technology has<br />

introduced the latest addition to<br />

its AFG series.<br />

“During development of this<br />

filling and closing machine for<br />

pharmaceutical powders, our main focus<br />

was on flexibility,” explains Dieter Bandtel,<br />

product manager at Bosch Packaging<br />

Technology. “With the AFG 5000,<br />

customers can choose between several<br />

different versions and various features.”<br />

Based on a single machine platform, the<br />

system can accurately fill both large and<br />

small amounts of powder. Customers have<br />

the choice between one filling point for an<br />

output of 160 containers per minute through<br />

to three filling points for up to 480 vials per<br />

minute. Thanks to the vacuum-compressedair<br />

filling system, the output remains high<br />

even when filling small amounts.<br />

For all versions, customers can choose<br />

between statistical or 100% in-process<br />

control of dosing weights.<br />

“To optimise efficiency, we have<br />

developed a new, flexible transport system<br />

for the AFG 5000,” says Bandtel. “While<br />

the vials are continuously fed into the<br />

machine, the transport system adjusts<br />

the speed of the following processes<br />

to precisely match the rhythm of the<br />

individual work stations.”<br />

Whether filling, weighing or closing<br />

vials, the new vertical transport system<br />

was designed to prevent idle time or<br />

bottlenecks. Rotating carrier systems,<br />

known as shuttles, transfer the vials<br />

quickly and safely to the respective work<br />

station. Once the vials have been sealed<br />

and taken out of the system, the shuttles<br />

quickly return to the infeed, ready for the<br />

next transport run.<br />

In addition to flexibility, the AFG 5000<br />

is compact as powder filling takes<br />

place in class B cleanrooms, where every<br />

centimetre counts in terms of operating,<br />

maintenance and cleaning costs.<br />

Blister changes are fast<br />

Surepharm Services has streamlined productivity with a new blister line<br />

British pharmaceuticals CMO<br />

Surepharm Services has<br />

experienced streamlined<br />

productivity following its<br />

installation of the Blister<br />

Express Center 300 (BEC 300) from<br />

Uhlmann Packaging Systems.<br />

A specialist in the contract<br />

manufacturing of generic and branded<br />

formulations, Surepharm required a<br />

blister line that would enable quick, easy<br />

and reliable changeovers to meet the<br />

goal of packaging at least 10 medicines in<br />

varying pack sizes. Uhlmann’s BEC 300, The Blister Express Center 300 from Uhlmann Packaging Systems has delivered benefits<br />

a combined blister and cartoning module<br />

met these needs. In operation, the unit<br />

processes blisters up to 95 x 145mm in size<br />

at speeds of up to 300 a minute as well as<br />

150 cartons a minute.<br />

The compact BEC 300 features a fast<br />

format changeover. For instance, a threedimensional<br />

format changeover can be<br />

carried out in less than 30 minutes, with<br />

the use of only a few lightweight tools.<br />

Resetting can be carried out without the<br />

use of any special tools, as new format<br />

parts are simply inserted and positioned.<br />

Similarly, Uhlmann’s S 3015 stretchbanding<br />

integrated downstream from the BEC 300,<br />

features fast changeovers and efficient<br />

material consumption. Together, the<br />

machines function smoothly and efficiently.<br />

Because of its diverse range of<br />

contracts, Surepharm also wanted<br />

to assure maximum flexibility, and<br />

appreciated Uhlmann’s capability to<br />

develop appropriate format parts for<br />

specially shaped solid dose products,<br />

as well as to provide additional feeders.<br />

“Uhlmann and the BEC 300 have<br />

exceeded our expectations,” says Julian<br />

Surepharm. “The BEC 300’s efficiency,<br />

fast format changeover, and userfriendliness<br />

are ideal, as is Uhlmann’s<br />

willingness and flexibility to meet any<br />

future needs we may have.”<br />

“Thanks to complete cooperation<br />

between our teams, the installation<br />

and operation of the BEC 300 and S3015<br />

stretch-banding machine proved to be<br />

smooth, on budget, and highly effective,”<br />

Total Productive Maintenance<br />

SMC Business Development Manager Jeff Careless, who advises customers on all aspects<br />

of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM), tells Machinery Update how taking a holistic approach<br />

to equipment maintenance can yield significant improvements to production efficiency.<br />

Total Productive Maintenance is<br />

helping all sorts of organisations, from<br />

global corporations to specialist SMEs,<br />

to maximise business efficiency. Often<br />

it is small changes in the<br />

manufacturing process that make the<br />

biggest impact. SMC Pneumatics has<br />

been promoting manufacturing<br />

efficiency for nearly 40 years with its<br />

Continuous Improvement strategy at<br />

the heart of the company’s business<br />

philosophy.<br />

When talking about TPM with customers,<br />

the first thing I do is put it in context<br />

as part of our commitment to Continuous<br />

Improvement in all aspects of an<br />

organisation’s business operation.<br />

But the area where the biggest returns<br />

can be achieved often with just<br />

small changes is Overall Equipment<br />

Effectiveness (OEE) throughout the<br />

manufacturing process. It’s here that<br />

we can advise the Maintenance Engineering<br />

team on how to develop and implement<br />

changes that are focused on proactive<br />

and preventative techniques for improving<br />

equipment reliability.<br />

But first, let’s just dispel some myths about<br />

TPM. Like many aspects of the “new”<br />

connected industry revolution, it is not<br />

actually new. It is simply a different approach<br />

to business efficiency. An effective TPM<br />

policy combines human intervention with the<br />

latest support technology using in-line<br />

diagnostics to pre-empt potential<br />

maintenance issues.<br />

Essentially, TPM brings together the roles<br />

of the production and maintenance teams<br />

with the emphasis on empowering operating<br />

staff to help maintain their equipment. With<br />

the right TPM programme, you can create<br />

shared responsibility for equipment that<br />

encourages greater hands-on involvement<br />

from production staff. This enables the<br />

maintenance staff to focus on overarching<br />

issues such equipment quality, site health &<br />

safety, back office TPM and process<br />

improvements.<br />

How does it work?<br />

So let’s look at what exactly is involved in a<br />

TPM programme. The original concept was<br />

developed back in the 1960s, consisting of the<br />

5S Foundation (Sort, Set in order, Shine,<br />

Standardise and Sustain) with Eight Pillars of<br />

activity supporting this.

Accurately measure OEE – track OEE on the<br />

target equipment to identify all potential areas<br />

where productive time is being lost.<br />

Address major OEE losses – having<br />

identified the most significant causes of lost<br />

production time, use this data to create your<br />

TPM programme and create a cross-functional<br />

team to implement it.<br />

5. Maintenance Prevention Use accumulated team<br />

TPM knowledge to<br />

improve equipment<br />

design and operation<br />

6. Quality Maintenance<br />

7. Office TPM<br />

8. Safety, Health & Environment<br />

It is fairly obvious how adopting the 5S Foundation<br />

creates a clean and well organised workplace:<br />

1. Sort and Set in order tools and parts making<br />

them easier to find<br />

2. Shine – it is easier to spot fluid leaks, shavings<br />

from metal wear or material spills in a clean<br />

work area<br />

3. Standardise – create standard of regular<br />

inspections to ensure workplace is clean<br />

and tidy<br />

4. Sustain – empowered staff ensure all these<br />

standards are maintained<br />

Assuming the 5S Foundation is in place, the<br />

Eight Pillars of TPM are shown in the table.<br />

your TPM programme is to run Pillars<br />

one to four in parallel with both the<br />

production line operators and the<br />

maintenance engineers. The aim of this<br />

division of labour is to encourage<br />

operators to take responsibility for the<br />

day to day running and maintenance<br />

of their equipment so freeing up the<br />

maintenance engineers from routine shop<br />

floor activities. With their “free” time, they can<br />

concentrate on implementing Pillars five<br />

you to pilot it first in a single<br />

Getting started<br />

At SMC, we can bring to bear a host of<br />

experience when it comes to designing and<br />

implementing an effective TPM programme<br />

for customers. Through many years of<br />

working with customers from across the UK<br />

manufacturing industry, we have developed a<br />

dynamic portable display that demonstrates<br />

how we can help you deliver TPM as part of a<br />

programme of Continuous Improvement.<br />

Our modular display enables us to engage<br />

with employees wherever they are on site,<br />

highlighting the issues that directly impact on<br />

your business efficiency. Working with your<br />

engineering and production line teams we will<br />

create a TPM programme, tailored to your<br />

specific business needs.<br />

This will address staff skills gaps with<br />

appropriate training delivered by our own<br />

highly experienced Learning & Development<br />

team; identify where you can reduce waste<br />

such as compressed air leaks which on average<br />

run at 20% of all compressed air generated<br />

equating to thousands of pounds in lost<br />

materials. Working together we will help you<br />

achieve a significant increase in factory<br />

throughput and productivity.<br />

Feature: Pharmaceuticals<br />

With the<br />

deadline for<br />

compliance fast<br />

approaching,<br />

machine<br />

builders and packaging<br />

manufacturers do not have<br />

much longer to ensure<br />

pharmaceutical and medical<br />

production meets the<br />

requirements of the Falsified<br />

Medicines Directive (FMD).<br />

There has been plenty<br />

of time to prepare for the<br />

February 2019 deadline<br />

and to develop solutions<br />

to ensure packs carry the<br />

required unique, traceable<br />

serial number. “Of course<br />

companies also have to use<br />

tamper-evident systems to<br />

protect packs from being<br />

opened and reclosed,”<br />

says David Hannaby, Sick’s<br />

UK product manager for<br />

presence detection.<br />

The requirements to<br />

combat tampering are further<br />

specified in standard<br />

EN 16679:2015-03 ‘Packaging<br />

– tamper verification features<br />

for medicinal production<br />

packaging’.<br />

DEVISING THE SEALS<br />

Manufacturers of labels<br />

and labelling machinery<br />

have devised a variety of<br />

self-adhesive seals that show<br />

irreversible, visible evidence<br />

whenever someone tries to<br />

open and reclose a pack.<br />

Seals made from transparent<br />

films or foils are particularly<br />

popular with packaging<br />

designers because they do not<br />

compromise the packaging<br />

design, or cover up any<br />

other markings.<br />

Ensuring the transparent<br />

seal is correctly applied to<br />

Glare looks for high-gloss surfaces<br />

The Glare sensor is easy to integrate into both new and existing machinery and comprises a central strip of eight<br />

LED emitters surrounded by two receiver lines, which make it resistant to vibration or any product ‘wobble’<br />

Glossy seals<br />

are perfect<br />

Machinery Update talks to Sick UK about technology<br />

that helps compliance with tamper evident seal needs<br />

the packaging during the<br />

production process every time<br />

is vital to achieve compliance.<br />

An optical sensor is deployed<br />

on the machine to verify<br />

the presence of the seal,<br />

label or mark on each pack.<br />

However, transparent seals<br />

are glossy. The packaging<br />

they are attached to may<br />

also be reflective, so they<br />

pose challenges for accurate<br />

detection by photo-electric<br />

devices that are ‘confused’<br />

by the diffusion of light<br />

reflections from the gloss<br />

seal and the surrounding<br />

materials.<br />

With the new regulations<br />

approaching, Sick turned<br />

the problem of gloss into an<br />

opportunity and developed<br />

a sensor that actually looks for<br />

a high-gloss surface.<br />

The Glare product from Sick<br />

recognises and differentiates<br />

between surfaces according<br />

to how glossy they are.<br />

It does this by analysing the<br />

spatial distribution of the<br />

reflected light using Sick’s<br />

Delta-S technology. It can tell<br />

the difference between the<br />

gloss of the seal and the more<br />

scattered, diffuse reflections<br />

from the packaging material.<br />

As a result, Glare delivers<br />

nearly 100% detection rates.<br />

It can be tailored to the<br />

specific process and can be set<br />

up using a simple three-point<br />

teach-in method to evaluate<br />

the gloss properties of the<br />

seal, the packaging and the<br />

background.<br />

The Glare sensor is a compact<br />

(42.5 x 44 x 43.4mm), all-inone<br />

IP67 unit. It comprises

a central strip of eight LED<br />

emitters surrounded by two<br />

receiver lines, which make<br />

it resistant to vibration or to<br />

any ‘wobbling’ of the product<br />

on a high-speed conveyor.<br />

“Glare can cope with ±5 degree<br />

misalignment - a function<br />

which other gloss sensors<br />

cannot match,” says Hannaby.<br />

The Glare Sensor is easy<br />

to integrate into both new<br />

and existing machinery.<br />

Light levels and sensing<br />

modes are adjustable to suit<br />

the application while the<br />

integrated IO-Link facilitates<br />

integration with PLC and servo<br />

motor control. The sensor’s<br />

settings are stored centrally<br />

in the machine controller<br />

and can be transferred to<br />

the sensor when production<br />

changes to a different pack,<br />

or when a sensor needs to be<br />

replaced at any time.<br />

Feature: Pharmaceuticals<br />

Machinery Update<br />

looks at the latest<br />

tablet reject units<br />

At interpack earlier this<br />

year, Cremer and Deckert<br />

both showcased Cremer<br />

counters with camera<br />

inspection systems<br />

and automatic reject of individual<br />

capsules that offered many benefits<br />

to pharmaceutical manufacturers.<br />

It is true that camera detection<br />

of broken, rogue or discoloured<br />

tablets or capsules is nothing new,<br />

however previously the reject<br />

process was either manual, or<br />

involved an entire container being<br />

taken from the line. And, to ensure<br />

the ‘bad’ tablet or capsule was<br />

rejected, it often involved more<br />

than one container being taken<br />

out – for safety.<br />

“Not rejecting the whole bottle<br />

of tablets or capsules offers savings<br />

to pharmaceutical companies,”<br />

says Gregor Rauch, managing<br />

director of UK distributor Raupack.<br />

“This is especially true with large<br />

tablet counts, as savings can be<br />

significant.”<br />

The new automatic broken<br />

tablet rejection options involve<br />

pneumatic suction systems to<br />

automatically remove defective<br />

tablets or capsules from the infeed<br />

tracks. “This new approach not<br />

only maximises yield, but also<br />

minimises downtime,” says Rauch.<br />

On a standalone counter like<br />

the CFS 622 model, once a defect<br />

is identified, a pneumatic arm<br />

moves across the 36 channels<br />

to remove the defective tablet or<br />

capsule. After this, the machine<br />

restarts without having to reject<br />

a container.<br />

If a quicker response is required,<br />

the automatic tablet reject on a<br />

The camera identifies broken capsules<br />

Rejecting a<br />

slow method<br />

Broken tablets<br />

or capsules can<br />

be easily removed<br />

via a pneumatic<br />

arm on both of<br />

the counters<br />

that were<br />

demonstrated<br />

Cremer counter integrated into<br />

a Deckert TVM monoblock is the<br />

way forward. On the TVM, for<br />

instance, a single CF622 module<br />

with six channels counts the<br />

tablets into bottles. Here, the<br />

reject mechanism consists of six<br />

pneumatically actuated reject<br />

arms, one for each channel.<br />

This arm moves quickly to<br />

remove the broken or otherwise<br />

rejected tablet.<br />

The automatic tablet reject<br />

system rejects for the following<br />

causes:<br />

• Broken pieces by pixel count<br />

• Broken pieces by length or width<br />

• Colour defects<br />

• Spots<br />

• Rogue tablets<br />

• Open capsules.<br />

In operation, the camera looks<br />

from above and is restricted to<br />

what it can see above. To improve<br />

the viewing angle and therefore<br />

narrow the tolerances, flat camera<br />

plates can be fitted to the Cremer.<br />

These plates improve the aspect<br />

ratio visible to the camera and also<br />

optimises the contrast to the tablet.<br />

As well as saving pharmaceutical<br />

companies with large tablet counts<br />

costs, the system also minimises<br />

rework, as ‘good’ tablets or<br />

capsules are not falsely rejected.<br />

And obviously, these systems have<br />

more to offer for fragile or sensitive<br />

products, where broken products<br />

are a problem. Also, cost savings are<br />

greater for high value products, too.<br />

“Since interpack, we have had<br />

several large pharmaceutical<br />

companies interested in these<br />

products as they recognise the<br />

savings that can be made in<br />

manufacturing costs,” Rauch<br />

tells Machinery Update.<br />

“The best returns are offered<br />

on high value or fragile products,<br />

but the reject mechanisms can<br />

be used by any size of company,”<br />

he says.<br />

or severe chronic diseases<br />

and metabolic disorders.<br />

To ensure simplicity,<br />

safety and overall patient<br />

compliance, the manufacturer<br />

not only offers vials, but also<br />

pens for a precisely dosed<br />

administration of a drug to<br />

battle high cholesterol.<br />

The delicate products need to<br />

be handled with extra-special<br />

care during the packaging<br />

process as, apart from glass<br />

breakages, the pens should<br />

not be activated prematurely<br />

during the process.<br />

In the design of the<br />

machine, Schubert ensured<br />

gentle, product-friendly<br />

handling while especially<br />

avoiding glass-to-glass<br />

contact. To meet this<br />

requirement, the vials and<br />

pens are placed into fluted<br />

cardboard dividers or<br />

pre-formed trays within the<br />

cartons themselves.<br />

Inserts keep glass vials separate<br />

Exact placement of the pens in the folding cartons demanded gentle handling, as did the glass vials. Product is exposed<br />

to the maximum force of 60 N which ensures that sensitive products are not damaged during the packaging process<br />

Better safe<br />

than sorry<br />

Machinery Update reports on how efficient robots and<br />

clever 3D technology have combined to bring benefits<br />

Furthermore, only<br />

extremely low forces could<br />

be exerted on the products<br />

during this process.<br />

In operation, the packaging<br />

process begins with standing<br />

vials being fed on a conveyor<br />

belt which transports them<br />

to the F4 robots. A camera<br />

detects their position on the<br />

belt and simultaneously<br />

controls the presence of the<br />

caps. The F4 robot then grips<br />

one vial from the belt and<br />

groups it horizontally on the<br />

Transmodul. Meanwhile, the<br />

pens are fed to the F4 robots<br />

in transport crates with 120<br />

pens each on a separate<br />

conveyor belt.<br />

CONTROLLED ERECTING<br />

In the carton erecting station,<br />

the blanks for the vials or<br />

the pens are denested from<br />

a magazine and erected.<br />

During this process, the<br />

pharmacode on the blanks<br />

is controlled and verified.<br />

Blanks with incorrect codes<br />

are rejected beforehand<br />

and do not even enter the<br />

packaging process.<br />

The erected cartons are<br />

placed on a Transmodul<br />

and forwarded to the next<br />

processing phase, where<br />

they are loaded with trays<br />

or partitions. Here again,<br />

the blanks are fed into the<br />

machine via a magazine.<br />

A combination consisting<br />

of F2 and F3 robots folds<br />

the partitions before they<br />

are placed into the product<br />

cartons. Sensors on the robot<br />

tool ensure that each carton<br />

has been provided with a

partition or tray respectively.<br />

These pre-grouped products<br />

– pens or vials – are then<br />

securely snapped into the<br />

trays or partitions within the<br />

cartons to ensure safe onward<br />

transit with no breakages.<br />

For pen packing, a new<br />

3D camera from Schubert that<br />

was especially developed<br />

for this project comes into<br />

operation. Transit boxes with<br />

120 pens are placed on a table<br />

in front of the picking robots.<br />

The F4 robot takes these pens<br />

directly from the transport<br />

boxes and places them in<br />

pre-grouped formations.<br />

After each product is taken,<br />

the 3D camera scans the<br />

contents of the boxes and<br />

determines the exact position<br />

and layer height of each<br />

individual pen.<br />

This data is passed on to<br />

the F4 pick and place robot to<br />

ensure that each product, even<br />

if its position has changed<br />

following removal of a pen,<br />

can be precisely targeted at<br />

the next product intake.<br />

In the final step of the<br />

process, the cartons are closed<br />

and the latches are controlled.<br />

Incomplete or open cartons are<br />

detected and ejected, while a<br />

conveyor belt forwards all of<br />

the controlled products to the<br />

downstream process.<br />

The system handles 13<br />

different formats for pens and<br />

vials in operation which is<br />

why flexibility was such a key<br />

to the machine design.<br />

PRODUCT LEAFLETS<br />

In the next module, F2 robots<br />

pick the product leaflets from<br />

a magazine and place them<br />

in the product cartons. Prior<br />

to inserting the leaflets, the<br />

pharmacode on the leaflets<br />

is controlled and verified.<br />

Leaflets with incorrect codes<br />

are rejected beforehand and<br />

do not enter the packaging<br />

process.<br />

LECTOR: PRECISE AND RELIABLE PHARMA CODE READING<br />

The Lector image-based code reader can reliably read and match up codes on pharma<br />

packaging. Intelligent identifi cation algorithms ensure that different 1D, 2D, stacked<br />

codes and plain text can be read on all kinds of materials. Intuitive setup with aiming<br />

Beavertown Brewery had<br />

originally used a Linx CJ400<br />

CIJ printer for all its coding<br />

requirements, but upgraded to the<br />

8900 after undergoing a dramatic<br />

expansion that saw its production<br />

batches increase from 700 litres<br />

to 10,000 litres, the equivalent<br />

of 77,000 litres of beer per week.<br />

This meant much higher speeds<br />

on its canning line.<br />

The Linx 8900 is able to handle<br />

the line’s current maximum speed<br />

of 200 cans per minute as well as<br />

higher speeds should throughput<br />

have to increase further as<br />

demand for Beavertown Brewery’s<br />

products continues to grow.<br />

Equally important, the printer can<br />

also cope with the line’s variable<br />

speed, ensuring code quality.<br />

Components<br />

Clever diaphragm pumps<br />

deliver low energy usage<br />

Aseries of intelligent<br />

diaphragm<br />

pumps has been<br />

implemented into Tapflo’s<br />

pump range portfolio.<br />

It means TC Intelligent<br />

pumps are now fitted<br />

with clever low energy air<br />

pump (LEAP) technology<br />

developed by the company.<br />

LEAP is a patented<br />

technology used in airoperated<br />

double diaphragm<br />

(AODD) pumps to reduce<br />

the operating air pressure.<br />

This is achieved by<br />

reducing internal losses<br />

and friction found in<br />

conventional AODD pumps.<br />

The LEAP technology was<br />

developed for an ultralow<br />

flow, high-pressure<br />

application utilising a double<br />

diaphragm pump with an<br />

electric power pack.<br />

Tapflo says the technology<br />

allows for sustainable energy<br />

management by achieving<br />

energy savings of up to 70%<br />

in operation.<br />

LEAP was first developed<br />

by Tapflo’s British team and<br />

consequently presented<br />

B&R is introducing new<br />

software components for<br />

controlling hydraulics<br />

applications. These<br />

components provide easier<br />

access to advanced closedloop<br />

control functions and<br />

assist developers in the<br />

design, simulation, virtual<br />

commissioning and diagnosis<br />

of hydraulic systems.<br />

B&R mapp Hydraulics<br />

provides numerous new<br />

functions, particularly for<br />

variable-speed pump drives.<br />

With the autotuning<br />

LEAP technology offers efficiency<br />

to Tapflo’s Group HQ in<br />

Sweden and also to the<br />

Polish manufacturing site.<br />

After being fully tested<br />

and approved to the group<br />

product standard, it has<br />

been implemented into the<br />

TC range. This new range is<br />

now available worldwide and<br />

distributed across<br />

six continents.<br />

The launch of LEAP meets<br />

the needs of users that<br />

have been requesting eco<br />

pumps in recent times that<br />

are able to reduce costs and<br />

provide a more sustainable<br />

use of energy, says business<br />

development manager at<br />

Tapflo Walter Bryce.<br />

In operation, the LEAP<br />

technology has allowed<br />

the pump to develop to<br />

give smooth, effective<br />

delivery at the lowest<br />

energy consumption.<br />

This technology shows<br />

efficiency improvements<br />

at all air pressures but the<br />

gains are most marked at<br />

low air pressures. Now,<br />

instead of starting at more<br />

than one bar with a possible<br />

tendency to stall at such<br />

pressures, a pump will start<br />

at as little as just 0.2 bar.<br />

The LEAP centre section<br />

can be dropped into any<br />

existing Tapflo pump offering<br />

attractive payback rates.<br />

The pneumatics company has<br />

updated its ZH Series vacuum<br />

ejector so that it is more compact<br />

in design, adaptable and can<br />

be used for a wider number of<br />

applications.<br />

Offering an improved<br />

maximum suction flow rate, the<br />

enhanced ZH is smaller and up<br />

to 74% lighter than the original<br />

series, delivering space savings<br />

and fewer inert moments when<br />

mounted in mobile applications,<br />

such as robot arms.<br />

It also comes with four<br />

mounting options – direct,<br />

standard bracket, L-bracket<br />

and DIN rail – giving customers<br />

greater choice and flexibility.<br />

These modifications make<br />

the ZH suitable for a range of<br />

applications such as packaging,<br />

palletising, materials handling,<br />

automatic assembly, automatic<br />

transport or pick and place in<br />

the semi-conductor, electrical,<br />

automotive, food and medical<br />

Components<br />

Drives give high availability<br />

and reliability to pasteurizers<br />

AUS-based manufacturer<br />

of bespoke machines<br />

for the food and<br />

beverage industry GC Evans<br />

is relying on drives from<br />

Nord Drivesystems to deliver<br />

high availability and also<br />

easy maintenance.<br />

“If a beverage pasteurizer<br />

were to have a drive failure,<br />

you are not only talking about<br />

lost product in the unit, but<br />

stopping a production line<br />

to the tune of potentially<br />

hundreds of thousands<br />

of dollars per hour,”<br />

explains David McNamer,<br />

manufacturing manager<br />

at GC Evans, US-based<br />

manufacturer of cooling and<br />

heating equipment for the<br />

food and beverage industry.<br />

“I do not want to worry about<br />

our drives and I do not want<br />

our customers to either which<br />

is why we choose Nord.”<br />

The company has been<br />

using Nord since 2008 and,<br />

says McNamer, not only were<br />

the units less costly than<br />

comparable competitors, but<br />

they were really high quality<br />

and well-engineered units.<br />

A resilient worm geared motor prevents gridlocks for bottles in transit<br />

“What impressed us the<br />

most was the level of service<br />

we received,” he says.<br />

Today, Nord drives are used<br />

in all GC Evans machines.<br />

For two recent orders, for<br />

instance, Nord has configured<br />

two conveyor drives with<br />

very high gear ratios for<br />

the company. One of these<br />

systems, a parallel shaft<br />

geared motor, moves 20,000<br />

jam jars, each weighing<br />

more than 1 kg, through a<br />

cooling tunnel. Its gearbox is<br />

configured with a 2,500:1 ratio<br />

to achieve an output speed of<br />

0.6 revolutions per minute.<br />

This drive system<br />

features various special<br />

options to meet the hygiene<br />

requirements of food<br />

processes: a very durable<br />

stainless steel finish, a<br />

food-grade gear lubricant,<br />

a vent plug, and an oil<br />

sight glass. The pressure<br />

relief vent plug from Nord<br />

regulates the air pressure in<br />

the gear units and motors<br />

from Nord are generally<br />

designed to withstand harsh<br />

environmental conditions.<br />

The second recent project<br />

for which Nord supplied a<br />

special drive system was a<br />

fruit juice pasteurizer with a<br />

slow-running conveyor belt:<br />

one bottle takes 45 minutes<br />

to pass through the 25m long<br />

machine. The hollow-shaft<br />

64 MACHINERY UPDATE NOVEMBER/DECEMBER <strong>2017</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

Regulations<br />

Look at the complex<br />

world of assemblies<br />

Paul Laidler Taylor<br />

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

Determining what is seen as an assembly of machines can be tricky and not something that you<br />

want to get wrong in terms of CE marking. Here’s a guide to working through the process<br />

Even though individual<br />

machines may comply<br />

with the Machinery<br />

Directive, when they become<br />

part of an assembly or<br />

production line, which links<br />

two or more machines, it is<br />

this entire assembly that is<br />

then considered to work as<br />

an integral whole and must<br />

therefore be CE marked as a<br />

new machine. Similarly, if<br />

modifications are carried out<br />

that alter the performance<br />

or function of a machine,<br />

or assembly of machines,<br />

this is considered to be<br />

creating an entirely new<br />

machine which warrants<br />

re-certification.<br />

The definition of assemblies<br />

of machinery indicates that<br />

assemblies are arranged<br />

and controlled so that they<br />

function as an integral whole<br />

in order to achieve the same<br />

end. For a group of units of<br />

machinery or partly completed<br />

machinery to be considered<br />

as an assembly of machinery,<br />

all of these criteria must be<br />

fulfilled:<br />

• The constituent units are<br />

assembled together in order<br />

to carry out a common<br />

function, for example,<br />

the production of a given<br />

product;<br />

• the constituent units are<br />

functionally linked in such<br />

a way that the operation<br />

of each unit directly affects<br />

the operation of other<br />

units or of the assembly<br />

as a whole, so that a risk<br />

assessment is necessary<br />

for the whole assembly;<br />

• the constituent units have<br />

a common control system.<br />

A group of machines that<br />

are connected to each other,<br />

but where each machine<br />

functions independently of<br />

the others is not considered<br />

as an assembly of machinery<br />

in the above sense.<br />

Under the Machinery<br />

Directive, the system<br />

integrator/end user that has<br />

created the machine assembly<br />

from separate units is<br />

responsible for ensuring that<br />

the assembly complies with<br />

the Directive’s essential health<br />

and safety requirements.<br />

This is most likely the case,<br />

as it is common practice for<br />

manufacturers of separate<br />

machines to place them<br />

on the market as complete<br />

machinery, which could<br />

operate independently, or as<br />

partly completed machinery<br />

that will then be assembled<br />

into a larger unit.<br />

DECLARATION NEEDED<br />

However, if the organisation<br />

buys the entire assembly from<br />

an original manufacturer,<br />

it must bear the CE marking<br />

and be accompanied by a<br />

Declaration of Conformity.<br />

If machines are placed on the<br />

market as partly completed<br />

machinery, they should<br />

not have the CE marking<br />

applied, but must instead be<br />

accompanied by a Declaration<br />

of Incorporation and the<br />

assembly instructions.<br />

It is then the machinery<br />

system integrator/end user’s<br />

responsibility to ensure<br />

compliance and apply the<br />

CE marking process to the<br />

entire assembly.<br />

DO A RISK ASSESSMENT<br />

If the constituent parts are<br />

functionally linked in such<br />

a way that each unit affects<br />

the operation of the others,<br />

a risk assessment of the<br />

whole assembly is necessary.<br />

The risk assessment<br />

must cover the suitability<br />

Creating a machine assembly<br />

can be a complex process but<br />

guidelines from the HSE can help<br />

of the separate units for the<br />

safe operation of the entire<br />

assembly, and potential<br />

hazards resulting from the<br />

interaction between them.<br />

It must also cover any hazards<br />

that are not covered by the<br />

Declaration of Conformity, the<br />

Declaration of Incorporation<br />

and the assembly instructions<br />

for the individual units.<br />

These three document types<br />

must also be included within<br />

the machine assembly’s<br />

technical file.<br />

The machinery assembly<br />

must be designed and<br />

constructed in such a way that<br />

the stop controls, including the<br />

emergency stop devices, can<br />

stop not only the machinery<br />

itself but also all related<br />

equipment, if its continued<br />

operation may be dangerous.<br />

Where individual machines<br />

making up an installation<br />

are not linked together via<br />

a main control system, this<br />

would not be classed as an<br />

assembly of machines under<br />

the Machinery Directive.<br />

The technical file must<br />

document any modifications<br />

that have been made to<br />

the separate units, when<br />

incorporating them into the<br />

assembly. Also, during its<br />

lifetime, one or more units of<br />

an existing assembly may be<br />

replaced by new ones, or new<br />

units added to an existing<br />

assembly. For such machinery<br />

in service, under regulation 10<br />

of PUWER, the employer must<br />

ensure that the conformity<br />

and safety of the machinery<br />

is maintained throughout its<br />

working life.<br />

CE MARKING PROVISION<br />

When a machine assembly<br />

is first created, or later has<br />

substantial changes made,<br />

a full CE marking and<br />

Provision and Use of Work<br />

Equipment Regulations<br />

(PUWER) assessment must<br />

be completed before that<br />

machine can be returned to<br />

service. Guidelines from<br />

sources such as the Health<br />

and Safety Executive as<br />

well as a thorough<br />

understanding of the<br />

Machinery Directive will<br />

bring clarity to the process.<br />
