CHAIRMAN PPMA GROUP OF ASSOCIATIONS

(INCORPORATING PPMA, BARA AND UKIVA)

Welcome to Machinery Update, we hope you enjoy this

packed March/April issue.

I believe face to face meetings can never be replaced

and while in the past, many people have said that exhibitions

would be superseded by the internet, good events continue to

thrive. Our own PPMA Show bears testament to this fact and

will continue its success of recent years this autumn.

Indeed, this year’s show is already larger with more companies

confirmed to be at the NEC, Birmingham 25-27 September.

In this issue, exhibitions take centre stage with previews

of key industry events such as Foodex (see pages 28-35),

Drives and Controls and Mach 2018 (page 66) and also a review

of the recent Southern Manufacturing (see pages 46-47).

Vision systems are now

a key enabler for automation as

the MVC event will demonstrate

Automation remains a key driver in machinery development and

in this issue we have an in depth feature on ready meals, a sector

where automation is critical, as well as complicated. Convenience

meals typically have more production processes than other food

items and so inspection also plays a key role in factories. Robustness

is another demand of equipment used to handle, say viscous

sauces. It was the robustness of one tray sealer, for example, that

has led to a major deal for one of our PPMA members in this sector.

When family firm Mumtaz first started manufacturing

ready meals at the back of its Indian restaurant in Bradford in

the 1990s, it purchased a second-hand tray sealer to handle

its volumes. Today, and backed by a multi-million pound

investment in a new ready meals facility, this tray sealer is still

being used for smaller production quantities and NPD.

The proof was literally in the pudding when the company

made its decision about a new tray sealing line for its factory.

Machinery Update was invited to this impressive site in

February, and you will find the full report on pages 50-51.

Continuing the theme of automation, one of the largest growth

areas is its relationship with machine vision and automated

inspection. If you are looking to learn about how this exciting

technology can benefit your company, why not attend the

upcoming Machine Vision Conference (see pages 24-27). Now in

its second year after its successful launch in 2017, it takes place

on Wednesday 16 May at the MK Arena in Milton Keynes.

It’s a must attend event if you want to stay ahead.

The plastics

debate takes

centre stage

Cutting-edge applications

can deliver everyday gain

n

As the dispute about plastics

packaging rages throughout the

mainstream media, two recent

events have brought it to the fore

in the manufacturing sector.

In January, a Westminster

Forum keynote seminar was

dominated by talk about

plastics while the Packaging

Innovations exhibition at the

NEC in Birmingham in March

played host to a new feature –

The Big Plastics Debate.

Coca-Cola European Partners

(CCEP), the Co-Op, Marks &

Spencer and Iceland formed an

expert panel during the debate

and the discussion proved

so popular that it had to be

live-streamed on four of the other

exhibition stages to house the

interested audience. Innovation,

collaboration and ambition

came up as the key themes

during the discussions.

The panel agreed that more

needs to be done to battle the

use of plastics and highlighted

that litter plays a major role in

bringing the subject of packaging

to the public’s attention. They

also felt that as leading retailers,

they should be doing more to

combat the issue, using their

influence to change the way the

industry works with the material.

“Our aim is to make our

packaging as sustainable as

possible and I think it is fair to

say that all of the panel have the

same ambition,” said Nick Brown,

head of sustainability at CCEP.

The Big Plastics Debate was popular

Budgets identified as

major training barrier

Drives and controls

company Bosch Rexroth

says a limited training

budget is a major barrier to

competitiveness, directly

impacting profitability.

This follows a survey it

commissioned that highlights

the correlation between

training adoption and budget,

and the impact this is

having on the implementation

of Industry 4.0.

Called ‘Tackling the training

gap in UK manufacturing’,

the report found that 43%

of engineers identify budget

constraints as one of the

key barriers to adopting

a more rigorous training

plan. Furthermore, over half

of respondents anticipate

training budgets will stagnate

in their organisation over the

next five years.

In the UK, ‘automation’ is

an area which is dramatically

increasing, however

productivity – measured both

by output per worker and per

hour worked – is significantly

lower against the UK’s major

trading partners in Europe

Riggs MU J-F 2018.qxp_MU 05/12/2017 15:00 Page 1

‘Tackling the training gap in UK manufacturing’ is available for download

and the US. For this reason,

it is worrying to discover

that automated production

processes and modern

automation techniques were

identified in the report as

the areas where the greatest

gaps in knowledge exist,

says Richard Chamberlain,

service product manager at

Bosch Rexroth.

The study also revealed

that in as many as a quarter

of companies, less than ten

hours of training is delivered

to employees each year on

average.

“We must upskill the

workforce and empower

engineers with the skills

they need to use Industry 4.0

technologies, while offering

continuous development

opportunities to individuals

is vital,” says Chamberlain.

Study findings show in

many instances, the UK

approach to training seems

to be an activity squeezed

in around day-to-day

operational requirements

rather than being seen as

a core value-adding

function.

Ensuring a

CIP process

is optimum

The CombiLyz conductivity meter

from Baumer is designed to

ensure the optimum interaction

of all the different physical

parameters in CIP (clean-inplace)

systems.

The exact concentration of

cleaning agents, while taking

into account flow rate, pressure,

temperature and time, defines

a reproducible process which

demands systems and components

which have the technical properties

and flexibility to support CIP safely

and cost-effectively, says Baumer.

With an accuracy of ±1% and a

measuring range of 500 µS/cm

to 1000 mS/cm, the CombiLyz

conductivity meter offers CIP

system operators the important

features and benefits for optimum

process control. It also delivers

fast and accurate temperature

compensation.

Where CIP systems require

acids or alkalis, accurate

measurement of concentration

levels is essential. When the

concentration of the acid or alkali

is increasing, the conductivity

meter controls the specified

concentration of the relevant

cleaning media. Thanks to

precise measurements, it ensures

that no more chemicals are

used than necessary helping

to minimise waste.

During the phase separation in

the CIP return flow, the CombiLyz

quickly recognises different media,

even when temperatures fluctuate

significantly which helps to reduce

the loss of stored cleaning agents.

After one cleaning cycle, the

CombiLyz accurately measures

the remaining chemicals in

the rinse water.

Changing products can

be completed at speed

The LineXpress program enables non-returnable PET bottle lines for beverages to be changed over in record times

Krones has recognised the

need for ever-speedier

product changeovers

and faster make-ready times

by developing LineXpress –

a program that enables

non-returnable PET lines for

water and carbonated soft

drinks bottles to be changed

over in record times.

This new program is not

only fast – only ten minutes

of production downtime is

required if the changeover

comprises only intermediate

rinsing and a change in closure

colour, label and packing

film. But, this automated

process also removes

all the ‘imponderables’

often associated with the

changeover process such as

human factors. Even if the

bottle format and the pack’s

formation and nature are

changed, the line can still

resume production after an

interruption of just half an

hour when using LineXpress.

When multi-format lines are

involved, benefits delivered

by the program include higher

productivity with a line of equal

size, or the same productivity

with a smaller line.

In both cases, says Krones,

the overall equipment

effectiveness (OEE) rises by

up to 20 %. This is because

LineXpress

• coordinates all steps in the

process that are needed for

the changeover

• enables essential operations

in the changeover to be fully

automated

• guides the operators reliably

and quickly through the

entire process, and

• enables process steps to

be carried out in parallel,

instead of one after another.

This smoothly coordinated

routine not only increases

productivity levels of

beverage lines, it also creates

significant gains in flexibility.

Thus, short changeover times

enable the same article to be

produced more often and also

in smaller batches without

losing out on productivity,

in order to tie up less

warehousing capacity,

for example, or even to

implement demand-responsive

just-in-time production.

LineXpress can also be

used to progress upgrades

in brand development cost

effectively, says Krones UK.

For instance, if a brand owner

has previously only used a few

bottle sizes and designs, it can

now utilise a wider choice of

packaging formats without

putting the cost-efficiency of

production lines at risk.

SPECIAL COMPONENTS

The LineXpress system

consists of individual

automation components

called the UnitXpress building

blocks. These, in conjunction

with the machine, control

the processes involved and

support the operators. These

automation components

can be specified to suit the

wishes of the customer but,

generally, the following

machines can be incorporated

into the LineXpress system:

Contiflow mixer, Contiform

stretch blowmoulder, Contiroll

labeller, Modulfill filler,

Checkmat inspector, Variopac

Pro packer, Modulpal Pro

palletiser, SynCo container

conveyor, MultiCo pack

conveyor and the PalCo pallet

Resources and costs are saved

Pallets are

stabilised

with gluing

Robatech has developed an

AntiSlip gluing solution for pallet

stabilisation which, in practice,

sees a hot melt adhesive applied

directly onto the packaging units

which can reduce the need for all

kinds of packaging materials and

also intermediate layer pads.

Pallet stabilisation with

AntiSlip gluing is combining

existing processes and methods

making it possible to drastically

reduce the need to wrap each

pallet intensively, the company

tells Machinery Update.

With the AntiSlip gluing

solution, lines or spirals of

hot melt adhesive are applied

directly onto the packaging

units, ensuring that the units

stick together reliably. Fewer

layers of packaging are therefore

required for dust protection while

stable transport and storage

is guaranteed as the adhesive

bond means units do not move

around in transit. In addition,

simple depalletising with little

waste is possible. So, says

Robatech, the solution is not only

environmentally friendly but also

cost-efficient. And the system

can simply be integrated into the

production process or retrofitted.

“Less material means less

waste and the bonding assures a

very stable pallet, which reduces

the risk of damaging any goods

when the pallet is unwrapped,

which all contributes to savings,”

says Hanspeter Huber, industry

manager packaging at Robatech.

New Machinery

Modular robot cell can help to

ease the path to full automation

New from RARUK

Automation is a

compact, mobile and

modular robot cell that can

be easily moved between

production and processing

machines to increase

productivity. It is designed

to accept a robot arm – such

as a Universal Robot; also

from RARUK Automation –

and can be systematically

expanded to give

manufacturers a growth path

to full automation.

FOUNDATION PRODUCT

ProFeeder Light is the

foundation product which

comprises a basic, standalone

unit with one manually

removable parts tray with

a capacity of up to 780 units,

depending on their size.

Ideal for use with most CNC

machines, ProFeeder Light

can handle a wide variety

of parts up to 10kg and is used

as extra ‘manpower’

for small batch production

or the first step towards

greater automation.

It can also be expanded

The system automatically sends a text alert to the operator if there is a stop

at any time to incorporate

additional functions such as

turning, deburring or cleaning.

The next in the threemodel

range is ProFeeder

which comes complete with

two movers and two parts

trays. The mover is a modular

cart which, when placed in

the robot cell, automatically

centres the parts tray. When

YPS MU M-A 2018.qxp_MU 20/02/2018 11:26 Page 1

the parts have been processed,

the first mover and tray are

replaced by the second mover

with unprocessed parts.

Interchangeable perforated

plates in the parts trays ensure

that the CNC machine can

be fed with all part types

and these can be replaced

with thin plate feeding for

operations such as edge

bending or even a custom

feeding solution.

The third option is ProFeeder

Multi that introduces a lift

module that automatically

presents trays to the machine

for parts to be processed;

its capacity is eight trays.

This solution makes it possible

to run a fully automated

four-shift operation or even

lights out production.

Manual input is limited to

machine supervision,

pre-filling the parts trays

and replacing the mover at

the end of the fourth shift.

All ProFeeder systems can

be quickly moved to a new

station with a pallet truck.

Set-up is easy and quick as it

only requires connection to

electricity and compressed

air. The system’s compact

design allows it to be used

with most types of processing

or production machines and,

as the robot arm can be fixed

on three sides of the cell,

application flexibility

is ensured, says RARUK.

Newman Labelling

Systems is providing

customers with two

labelling solutions – the

CTE350 and CTE450 – to

ensure compliance with the

Falsified Medicines Directive

(FMD) 2011/62/EU.

The FMD requires two

mandatory safety features that

enable medicines to be verified

and authenticated along

the supply chain: tamper

evident features and a unique

identifier on the carton.

THE TWO LABELLERS

CAN RUN AT UP TO

400

cartons a minute on the faster

model and 350 a minute on

the more compact machine

Newman says its CTE350

and CTE450 automatic

tamper evident labellers

enable customers to meet

these new regulations, while

also providing high levels

of flexibility and reliability.

Designed to apply a range of

self-adhesive tamper-evident,

anti-counterfeit and hologram

labels, a single machine can

handle a wide range of carton

types and sizes.

The CTE350 measures just

over 1 metre in length and is

ideal for integrating in to lines

where space is at a premium.

Where higher speeds are

required, the CTE450 is the

better option to use.

Newman can also integrate

different print and inspection

New Machinery

New app controls robot

operations in a new way

With the aim of creating

a more intuitive,

easier and faster way

to control industrial robots,

Comau has released PickAPP,

an Android application

to perform pick and place

operations in a completely

new way.

Until now, robot

programmers were skilled

technicians who used a teach

pendant device (robot remote

control) to interact with the

robot. Comau says it has

reversed this scenario with its

‘ease of use’ new APP which

is designed to improve the

customer experience.

PickAPP is an Android

application for an 8-10 inch

tablet, configured with

graphical operations which

are said to improve the overall

user experience. Thanks to this

application, anyone familiar

with smartphones will be able

to move a robot and create a

pick and place process simply

preparing a list of waypoints,

without having to learn robotic

programming language.

The user moves the robot

Kecol MU M-A 2018.qxp_MU 09/03/2018 16:00 Page 1

PickAPP is currently available for low payload robots, but more will follow

manually by pulling and

pushing robot joints, or using

the interface in a similar

way that is used for toy

cars or drones. Additional

configurations, like the type

of movement and the actions

related to a gripper, can be

easily added.

The application has been

developed by multiple users

with a different approach

than the one usually used for

standard industrial processes,

says Comau. A sample group

of testers, ranging from expert

technicians to young people

who play games on a tablet,

were able to perform the

programming required for

a pick and place process in

just a few minutes, and

without any prior training.

PickAPP is available for

Comau low payload robots,

such as Rebel-S (SCARA),

Racer3 and Racer5 (3 to 5kg

payload), and will soon be

implemented for the entire

Comau robot family.

Integrating vision into

machine automation

Automation

specialist B&R

is introducing

an image processing

solution to the

UK market at the

Machine Vision

Conference (MVC).

This solution was

first introduced at

SPS IPC Drives in

Germany at the end

of last year, and

makes machine

vision an integral

element of the

automation ecosystem.

It includes

cameras, software

and lighting accessories

and is designed to be

seamlessly incorporated in

the automation system.

“Vision has often been an

add-on when dealing with

robot automation,” says

Stephen Radcliffe, marketing

manager for the UK & Ireland

at B&R Automation. “Our new

option takes out a whole layer

of processing and the reaction

from machine builders at

launch was overwhelmingly

positive,” he says.

Acrovision, one of the UK’s

vision inspection and barcode

reading integrators, will be

showing a cobot (collaborative

robot) working with its smart

vision cameras at the

one-day event.

The company says it is

finding that integrating cobots

into vision applications

is providing a safe and

cost-effective solution to many

vision applications where

product handling is an issue.

Recent applications include

guiding the robot with vision,

B&R’s vision portfolio ranges from simple to high-end units

At the heart of the solution is

a broad selection of intelligent

camera technology. Options

at the lower end will replace

simple machine vision sensors,

while the top of the range

will harness the full potential

of high-end smart cameras.

Also, ready-made software

components are available for

creating applications with

minimal new programming.

Lighting elements are

available integrated in the

camera, as an external

device, or even as a

combination of the

two. This makes

extremely precise

synchronisation

for high-speed

image capture and

object-specific

functions such as

bright-field or darkfield

illumination

easy to implement.

Image triggers and

lighting control can

be synchronised

with the rest of

the automation

system in hard real

time and with submicrosecond

precision.

B&R’s machine vision

system is integrated on every

level: the engineering tool,

the real-time operating system

and the application software.

With a single development

environment for every aspect

of automation, controls

engineers will now be able

to implement many machine

vision tasks on their own,

says Radcliffe.

T 01733 371320

W www.br-automation.com

Integrating cobots into vision applications

is proving a cost effective handling option

providing the robot with

x-y co-ordinates for

‘pick-and-place’, or the robot

is moving the camera for

multiple inspections of the

same particular part.

The key advantage of using

cobots is that as well as being

very easy to program, they

are also inherently safe

(subject to risk assessment),

to allow them to work with

and alongside humans, says

the company.

Show highlights supply

chain efficiency gains

Foodex returns to the NEC,

Birmingham in April

to highlight the latest

innovations in supply chain

efficiency.

Billed as the UK’s leading

trade event for the food and

drink processing, packaging

and logistics industries, the

event takes place over three

days and will see over 400

suppliers in halls 3 and 3a.

The show is co-located with

Food & Drink Expo, National

Convenience Show, Farm

Shop & Deli Show and the

new Ingredients Show.

Nearly 50 PPMA (Processing

& Packaging Machinery

Association) members will

be demonstrating their latest

developments during the three

days. Some are highlighted on

the following pages, but more

will be at the NEC.

The Sustainability Zone

at Foodex is a dedicated area

within the show bringing

a selection of exhibitors

offering green solutions to

the UK’s food and drink

manufacturers. From energy

saving machinery, heating

Riggs Autopack will be

exhibiting a selection of its

volumetric depositors and

filling machines, transfer

pumps and conveyor filling

lines at this year’s Foodex.

Visitors to the stand will

see a twin head automatic

filling machine with conveyor,

transfer pump and a selection of

semi-automatic filling machines

with foot pedal control that are

designed for small to medium

scale food production.

The depositors and filling

machines are available as a

and lighting through to waste

disposal and reduction,

organisers say visitors to

the Zone will be able to find

the complete solution.

“Increasing supply chain

efficiency is one of the most

effective ways for companies to

reduce overheads and increase

profits,” says Dan Dixon,

sales director at organisers

William Reed Business Media.

“Foodex recognises this,

bringing logistics experts from

all corners of the industry

to contribute their insights

and experience, providing

opportunities for visitors to

learn and be inspired.”

It will also be showcasing

the RF Lite feeding system

with thermal inkjet coder which

the company describes as an

entry-level solution that brings

the benefits of automated date

marking within the reach of

many smaller and more cost

sensitive food manufacturers

for the first time.

The RF Lite has been

developed to cater for changing

market dynamics and packaging

demands, which are seeing

smaller, thinner and complexshaped

packaging sleeves being

applied across a much broader

and more variable range of

products. The ability to handle

such packaging media and

formats is where the RF Lite

excels, as its friction-wheel feed

system can easily handle thinner

and lighter sleeves whereas

conventional ‘push’ or shuttle

feed mechanisms would struggle.

Also on show will be the

offline RF Auto sleeve and

carton friction feeder which

incorporates a patented autogate

feature that automatically

adjusts to accommodate

varying thicknesses of

packaging materials. This

automatic adjustment feature is

beneficial for lines that have to

accommodate multiple product

changeovers – sometimes

as many as 10 per day –

as it eliminates set-up times

and sleeve waste.

Multi-equipment project has

automated wood processing

RM Group had to

overcome several

challenges when

supplying equipment to

automate the labour intensive

process of handling large

boards at SCA Timber.

SCA approached RM Group

to assist in the automation

of depalletising 1200 mm x

2400 mm boards, applying

multiple labels and then

restacking and strapping

them ready for storage and

shipment to customers.

The product brief was

to supply, install and

commission an automatic

de-palletising robot and system,

capable of handling several

variations of board size and

stack patterns. In addition

to the robotic handling

equipment, the company also

integrated a new automatic

Bocedi strapping machine

complete with four corner

product protection.

The installation included

a roller conveyor system that

receives full packs of 1200 mm

x 2400 mm boards ranging

in thickness from 6 mm-25 mm

SCA Timber (UK) now has an operator friendly system performing reliably

before presenting them to

the robot for de-palletising.

An ABB robot palletiser

with multi-function head for

handling boards was supplied

as well as two Domino

automatic print and apply

label applicators. The fully

automatic Bocedi strapping

machine with corner

protection was joined by

a conveyor system to transport

loaded packs through

the strapping machine

and on to the existing beam

saw machine.

A full safety guarding

system including mesh

guards, light guards and

access gates with control

panels and operator interface,

completed the solution.

One of the unique

challenges of the project

was that the boards have a

natural suction to one another

which the depalletiser had to

overcome. Also, the restricted

work area and high speed

requirements meant the

system RM Group supplied

needed to be robust and

efficient with quick change

over between products.

The system was fully

pre-assembled at the RM Group

factory for set up and testing of

all formats as well as reducing

onsite commissioning time.

A detailed customer factory

acceptance test was also

carried out prior to despatch.

In addition to RM Group

factory testing, a number

of tests and a pre-delivery

acceptance test were carried

out at the Bocedi factory

in Italy. As a result, the

integration and installation

of the strapping machine

was a smooth process.

Million pound investments meet

pharma needs of contract packer

Pharmaceutical contract

manufacturer and

packer Wasdell Group

is investing millions in new

equipment and processes to

help meet its stated ambitions

of becoming the number one

contract packaging company

in Europe. The company has

also announced expansion

plans in Swindon as well as a

new greenfield site in Ireland.

At the end of last year, the

company invested £1.1 million

in a new Romaco Noack

blister machine for its Burnley

facility which was supplied

by Pharma Machinery while

this January, the company

announced a £1 million

investment in serialisation

(track and trace) technology.

The latest Noack machine

joins the Romaco-only fleet

of equipment housed across

the Wasdell facilities and

has increased the company’s

annual capacity by 500

million blisters. This new

950 unit expands the fleet

of Noack machines to pack

pharmaceutical, health and

nutritional products into

blisters. An advantage of

the new technology is that

existing tooling can work

across both machines with

Wasdell director of sales Andy Causer

The latest Noack machine - the 950 - joins the Romaco-only fleet of equipment housed across the Wasdell sites

only slight modifications to

the cutters required.

Director of sales Andy

Causer, a qualified engineer,

is very familiar with the

Noack equipment and believes

these quick changeover

machines are perfect to meet

the short production runs that

the contract packer has to

cope with all the time.

Focusing on just one supplier

of such key equipment also

brings other benefits.

“Our engineers are used to

working on them and have

built up a bank of knowledge,”

he tells Machinery Update.

“Our spare parts are also

rationalised, and our inhouse

engineering facilities make

blister tooling available within

4-6 weeks,” he says.

“Speed to market is key for

us which is why we invested

in our tool making facilities,”

he continues. “This is an

important element of our

business that we have complete

control over,” he says.

At the start of the project,

Wasdell’s Phil Vines visited

Romaco in Germany with

Dave Renninson of the UK

agent Pharma Machinery to

discuss all the specifications.

Meanwhile, the company

believes it is staying one step

ahead in the fight to stop

counterfeit drugs thanks

to its recent investment in

serialisation. The technology

meets FMD requirements

and enables each pack

produced at Wasdell to be

serialised, tamper-proofed

and aggregated at case and

pallet levels.

Although the deadline for

FMD compliance is February

next year, Causer says the fact

that Wasdell is ahead of the

game in this area is already

bringing in more new business

The company

has built a bank

of knowledge

to the group, even from big

pharma companies that have

not yet started down the road

to compliance.

The company identified the

need for new machinery and

software and the project was

overseen by group validation

manager Ayo Sotannde. Four

new machines will be added

to production lines, with the

first one now in operation.

The company worked

closely with the software

designers and the machine

manufacturers to specify

exactly what was needed

according to clients’ needs

across the world.

“We’ve taken a very

proactive approach here and

have been preparing for the

arrival of this legislation for

almost a year,” says Sotannde.

“This first machine will

enable us to help protect our

clients’ goods and the general

public against counterfeit

pharmaceuticals.”

Six-axis robots are deboning

legs of pork at flexible speed

Six-axis robots that are

now being used for

processing meat have

delivered greater productivity

and efficiency in Japan.

The job of removing bones

from pork legs is being

achieved by a pioneering

Hamdas-R robot system that

uses two Stäubli six-axis

RX160 HE machines operating

as master butchers. The

machine has to meet strict

hygiene requirements for

handling fresh meat and it also

has to perform at speed – no

fewer than 500 pork legs enter

and leave the line per hour.

Robot functionality is also

tested at these speeds because

no one piece of pork is the

same as another, so flexibility

is also a key requirement.

The HE version of the Stäubli

RX160 is used as it is specially

designed to withstand the

intensive cleaning processes

in the food industry. The fully

enclosed robots equipped with

special gaskets conform to

IP65 standards of protection

while the use of a Stäubli

overpressure unit increases

Simmatic MU J-F 2018.qxp_MU 09/01/2018 17:03 Page 1

The new meat processing line avoids the physically exhausting manual work for operators at new high speeds

the degree of protection even

further; the wrist meets the

requirements of IP67, meaning

that it is completely watertight,

for example.

Vertical internal cabling

has also meant that as all the

connectors are located under

the robot pedestal, they are

safe from water ingress.

The Japanese equipment

manufacturer has devised a

way of using the robots with

the correct precision for the

task. In operation, an x-ray

system detects the position

of the bones in the meat and

calculates the exact incision

line for the robots. Robots have

to compensate for the fact that

the meat is hanging from an

overhead hook, and so is liable

to move around. Each wristmounted

knife has to cut with

precision and, at the same

time, with sensitivity to avoid

any collisions with bones.

Food-safe oils are used

in combination with the

robots, without any loss

of efficiencies.

Multi-pack line for

popcorn saves film

An automatic multi-packing line

for 20g popcorn bags that uses

flow wrapping to reduce film

consumption and a vertical racetrack

collator to counter product fragility,

lightness and irregular shapes, has been

developed by Italian manufacturer PFM.

Based on a PFM Compact horizontal

multipacker, the line has been delivered

to a major snack food manufacturer in

the Far East, replacing a manual bagging

operation, and handles 30 primary

packs a minute, ten in each multipack.

Film savings are in excess of 30%.

Primary packs are fed flat to the

racetrack collator, which

accumulates five and indexes

through 90 degrees to

present the row on

edge to a pusher.

This guides the

bags through the

wrapper’s forming

box and a repeat cycle completes the

2 x 5 collation, which is then sealed

in film.

“Instead of stacking the bags, using

a race track collator not only provides

much gentler handling, but by wrapping

the bags on edge also gives the multipack

a narrower facing for better use of shelf

space,” points out PFM product specialist

Alan Atkinson.

The multipacks are wrapped with

a block bottom seal, allowing stand-up

on-shelf presentation, while savings

in packaging materials come from

the intrinsic tightness of this form of

multipack and also optimisation

of pack dimensions.

invested in four doublescrew

pumps from

Fristam Pumps to dose

various ingredients to

its ice cream premix.

Engineers at

Pumps are sturdy, versatile and hygienic

the company were

particularly impressed by the sophisticated

design, versatility, high performance and

low maintenance of the technology.

The central positioning of the gearwheels

allows for an extra compact design while

the solid shafts are reinforced to all critical

points to ensure maximum

rigidity. Also, the large

bearings and increased

bearing distances make the

pumps particularly stable.

Fristam says all these

design features guarantee

smooth running and

them. This treatment removes

contaminants and increases

the surface energy to ensure

adhesive joints, printing inks

or applied coatings achieve

optimum performance.

Enercon says that both

options are ideal for use on

almost all surfaces. The wider

head of the blown arc gives a

broader coverage area while

the fine nozzle of the blown ion

treater makes it ideal for use

with difficult to reach recesses.

An option to run multiple

heads from multiple processes

have been cited as one of the factors

putting pressure on many high

street, mainly Italian, restaurant

chains in the news just now.

NEW ‘RESTAURANT QUALITY’

To meet these needs of ‘restaurant

quality’ foods, packaging

machinery manufacturers have

to cope with new formats and

materials being introduced to help

convey point of difference and

establish effective on-shelf impact.

This, in turn, says John Tierney

of Linx Printing Technologies,

increases the demands put on

coding equipment, with printers

is putting the

sector

in steady growth

required to code onto more varied

packs and substrates – from

plastics trays and bags to card

sleeves and cartons, and often at

different angles.

Steve Ryan of Rotech Machines

believes a number of different

stakeholders are increasing

pressure on ready meals producers

with regard to the quality of

labelling and coding.

“With retailers demanding clearer,

more detailed ingredient

information, overprinting important

batch numbers, barcodes and

expiry date information becomes

more complex and has led to a

definite push towards offline

systems that cater to different

packaging types and product ranges

and portion pack sizes,” he says.

Effective tray sealing is a key

ingredient to ready meals and

this is covered in this feature, as

as is inspection equipment which

plays a vital role in this sector as

it typically has more processes

than other food items, so there are

more risks. Tony Burgess of Proseal

says machinery suppliers need

to be able to respond quickly to

both current and future packaging

trends in this market. “For tray

sealers, this requires an element of

future-proofing in the development

of new tray equipment,” he says.

“This gives food manufacturers

the reassurance of knowing that

they will have the capability to

handle the latest packaging trend

without the need to invest in new

kit every time.”

Passion for good

food is a family

affair in Bradford

Mumtaz has come a long way since its humble beginnings but its

emphasis remains on good, wholesome homemade food at its new

ready meals factory that houses robust and also reliable equipment

T

he Mumtaz mission is simple.

The company wants to delight

its customers with the rare taste

of authentic Indian cuisine

and to excite them with rich,

aromatic sauces and authentic flavours.

With family values at heart, the

company uses its grandmother’s original

recipes to make honest Indian food and

creates its hand cooked ready meals using

the finest quality fresh ingredients, using

no additives or preservatives. It does this

at the factory it moved into in 2015.

This 60,000sq ft site was built from

scratch to accommodate the growing

ready meals business and it currently

houses a line comprising equipment from

Mondini and a rice filler from Multi-Fill.

Importantly for the company’s growth

targets, the BRC-accredited factory also

has all the services in place to handle

other lines in the future. As operations

director of the business Bilal Akbar says:

“We are so passionate about our food,

our goal is to become a household brand

that is synonymous with restaurant

quality food, at home.”

And this goal is certainly in sight as

it now supplies meals to several multinational

retailers and discounters and

has recently won a contract to supply

on-line grocer Ocado. Initially, the

company produced its own, Great Taste

Award-winning meals, but today it also

manufactures a significant number of

own-brand SKUs. Indeed, about 50%

of its business is now in own-label which

has effectively, doubled its volumes.

The Mumtaz business started in 1979

when Grandma set up a 4 metre square

shop on Great Horton Road in Bradford

selling samosas and the like. Following

years of expansion, this site now thrives as

a nearly 500 cover, landmark restaurant in

Bradford. The family has since opened

a further restaurant in Leeds but in the

mid-90s, found itself at a crossroads.

Should the business open more

restaurants or expand into the ready

meals business?

Dr Gul-Nawaz Akbar, Bilal’s father,

a neuro surgeon by profession, decided

to take the manufacturing route and

started making meals in a unit at the

back of the Bradford restaurant in 1995.

At the end of the decade it acquired

a second-hand Mondini machine to seal

its ready meals trays.

It was this purchase that convinced

the company to buy the line for its new

factory from the Italian company. Mainly

because, this old machine, which was one

Mumtaz started making its own range of meals in 1995 and bought a second-hand Mondini machine

of the first automatic machines Mondini

manufactured, is still going strong today!

At the new site, this original model is

still used for smaller runs, or sometimes

development quantities, and continues

to run without a problem.

The tender from Mumtaz to Mondini

specified a fully automatic line which would

work constantly at a speed of 60 packs a

minute, much faster than the second-hand

unit. Products to be handled comprised a

range of chilled Indian ready meals into

single and twin compartment trays.

According to Brian Hemsley, sales

director of Mondini UK, the length of

the line was determined so that Mumtaz

could automate the filling of products

in the future. “These future depositing

machines would also work with a

travelling head system as, to achieve

60 packs a minute, each product has to be

deposited under control to avoid spillage,”

he says. Avoiding spillage also stops any

contamination of the tray sealing flange

which is likely to lead to sealing issues.

Mumtaz wanted an efficient line with

a sealing machine that would deliver

complete control of the filled trays into the

sealer, positioning them on the grouping

belt gently to avoid any errors. Pusher

arms guarantee a smooth transfer into

the sealing tool area, where this precise

movement allows the sealing tool to heat

seal the trays efficiently.

Tray denesting and handling, controlled

depositing (filling the cold, viscous

sauces) and feeding to the integrated

of this project, says Hemsley. After tray

sealing, the trays go through metal

detectors to the separate packing area.

In operation, the tray denester has

to have six minutes accumulation time

to allow the operator to complete other

activities. Meanwhile, precise control of

the sealing tool technology also allows

for quick changeovers which is crucial to

a food business handling many different

ready meal variants, about 40-50 SKUs.

Changeovers are critical to the

Bilal says the company was comfortable

in committing to the Mondini equipment

because of its track record in providing

efficiency, robustness and flexibility to

the business. He also talks about the

responsiveness of the UK business in terms

of service and spare parts. “The back-up

has been very good,” he says.

“We did consider other equipment

but we were not as impressed with their

build quality,” he tells Machinery Update.

“We run a chilled food operation and so

can’t afford breakdowns.” The company

handles orders on day one, for day two,

so everything needs to be efficient.

Bilal says the family took a long term

view in its decision to purchase Mondini

equipment for the site. It installed the latest

Trave model, the 367, to meet its needs.

“It gave us peace of mind,” says Bilal.

And the company is not finished

investing in the plant as it is currently

investigating multihead technology to

handle the proteins. And, of course, it is

already set up to install additional lines

when the business volumes justify it.

Pack developments

are challenging

machine flexibility

The growth in popularity

of skin packs and other

new formats for ready

meals and ready-to-cook

foods, such as MAP gas

flushing and vacuum MAP sealing,

is creating additional challenges

for equipment suppliers, says Tony

Burgess of Proseal.

Such developments have

led to many manufacturers

experimenting with pack formats,

particularly for new products.

At the same time it is imperative

that, while exploring these options,

they are still able to maintain

current production needs.

In addition, the proliferation

of new products means many

manufacturers now have to be

able to handle a variety of different

packs on their lines.

Machinery suppliers therefore

need to be able to respond quickly

to both current and future packing

trends. For tray sealers, this

requires an element of futureproofing

in the development

of new tray equipment, so that

food manufacturers have the

reassurance of knowing that they

will have the capability to handle

the latest packing trend without

the need to invest in new kit

every time.

EASY PRODUCT SWITCHES

Proseal’s latest models, for

example, can handle all of

the above-mentioned sealing

formats, and these options can

be added at any time, and even

removed if required. “This gives

manufacturers the flexibility easily

to switch between packs during

normal production, or to run trial

packs,” says Burgess.

In addition, as we develop

new features in line with market

requirements, we ensure that

these can also be retrofitted to

models already in operation on

the production floor, he says.

In terms of line speeds, the

have helped to increase speeds.

They also improve product

handling since there are fewer line

Meanwhile, the availability of

online monitoring of equipment and

the ability to collect data on small

but unscheduled line stoppages

can help production managers

and engineers identify recurring

problems and implement corrective

action to maximise line uptime

FULLY INTEGRATED LINES

Both of these developments also

underline the importance of

developing fully integrated packing

lines, where individual pieces

of equipment are linked together

to help maximise efficiencies.

As part of this, modular conveyor

designs allow individual sections

of the infeed and outfeed

conveyors to be removed for

maintenance and cleaning,

helping to maximise hygiene and

avoid unnecessary or unplanned

downtime throughout the line.

Similarly the availability of

cartridge tool systems enables

any tool to be quickly and easily

removed from a tray sealer and

replaced in the event of a problem.

All the elements that might need

attention are contained within

the cartridge, meaning repairs

and adjustments can be carried

out offline while the tray sealer

continues to operate, thus ensuring

that downtime is minimised and

overall throughput maintained.

Given that investment

When assessing risk,

examining all of the

processing steps is critical

as metal could be introduced

in any number of the processes

where cutting blades or

grinders are being used.

Putting it into context, in an

average ready meal there can

be more than eight production

steps between sourcing

ingredients to packing, and

more than five different

product components each

requiring, cleaning, peeling

and inspection, slicing,

cooking, quality inspection,

flavouring and finally

weighing and packing.

RISK CAN BE AMPLIFIED

If manufacturers are choosing

cheaper raw ingredients, the

risk to reputation could be

amplified.

“Although most external

companies supplying

ingredients are extremely

diligent, the more extensive

a supply chain and the further

inspection equipment is

pushed up the line-up, the

greater the risks,” says Brown.

Likening a metal

contaminant to a virus, Brown

emphasises that catching it in

its largest form, for example

in a single potato, is the

ideal. “Doing this means you

eliminate it at the cheapest

part of the process, but also

you catch it before the metal

is chopped up and dispersed

into multiple products,”

he explains.

Pushing the inspection solely

to the end of the line means

any contamination will be

caught at the most expensive

part of the production

process where an entire

batch of product, for example

500 ready meals, could

potentially be contaminated

with unidentifiable metal

fragments.

Also, zero recalls in the

past doesn’t mean you are

immune to future threats.

“Quality assurance often runs

deeper than the obvious,”

says Brown. Rather than

considering the ‘if’ it can be

prudent to think instead about

the ‘when’. To mitigate future

contaminant risks means you

are not looking for patterns

but future potential holes

in the security chain.

From a practical

perspective, food processing

inspection risks should be

reviewed every 12 months

as part of a defined HACCP

assessment. However you may

want to do it more frequently

if a process is changing,

for example if switching

packaging from a plastic wrap

to a cardboard outer,” he says.

Feature: Ready meals

Speed and

flexibility is

essential for

ready meals

production

and tray sealers must meet

new pack challenges,” says

Lee Vine, tray sealer design

manager at Ishida Europe.

Tray formats in the ready

meals sector are constantly

evolving, with companies

competing to gain shelf space

in the big supermarkets.

Examples include different

shapes, sizes and materials

along with multi-compartment

packs. This, says Vine, has

placed demands on equipment

suppliers to deliver high

throughput and efficiencies

while handling these very

varied formats.

One major factor driving

new pack development is the

huge increase in the number

of single person households

in many parts of the world

and to meet this demographic

development, producers are

introducing single-serve

formats. What was once a

pack suitable for two people is

now evolving into a pack with

two separate compartments,

each containing a single portion.

This allows one half of the

contents to be consumed,

while the other remains in

its protective packaging

atmosphere until required at

a later date. For the consumer,

this provides convenience,

while the extended product

life and portion control help

to drive down food waste.

TEAR OFF FEATURES

For the manufacturer, these

single-serve packs bring new

challenges, however. The pack

has to be capable of being

separated by the consumer,

so typically a tear-off feature

is included between the

compartments. This tear-off

feature reduces the rigidity of

the package and this in turn

increases the demands on

high speed automatic pack

handling systems.

The two compartments

require separate sealing film

Preserving shelf life is just one of the requirements of an effective packing line, along with efficient throughput

Coping with

new formats

Machinery Update talks to Lee Vine, tray sealer design

manager at Ishida Europe about handling new formats

to be applied to each,

effectively doubling the

number of packs being

produced by the equipment.

Meanwhile, the competitive

nature of the convenience

foods and ready meals sector

is also driving new product

development. At the same

time, many lines are packing

for special promotions and

this requires the ability to vary

certain lines by as much as

60% week on week. As a result,

flexibility is vital, with tray

sealers that are quick and easy

to change between products,

and which can run at very high

efficiency, in greater demand.

To meet these requirements,

recent Ishida tray sealer

developments have included

features such as intelligent

control systems with autoset

features for integrated

film coding, gas mixing and

analysing, allowing one

button product changeovers.

Servo-driven motion delivers

accurate and consistent tray

Single-serve along with

multi-compartment packs are

some of the latest challenges

handling at high speeds in

order to maximise product

throughput.

A key development for

multi-product operations

is the ability of some tray

sealers to handle two different

products simultaneously.

In operation, two lanes of

product can be fed into the

tray sealer, with each lane

operating independently at

different speeds. This enables

manufacturers to run two

separate tray sizes, pack

weights, or products, and even

for two different customers,

at the same time, in only one

machine footprint, says Vine.

Such examples of high

speed combined with high

flexibility, along with the

long term reliability of the


www.machineryupdate.co.uk MARCH/APRIL 2018 MACHINERY UPDATE 63

equipment, can deliver low

cost of ownership and fast

return on investment, he says.

Vine says that to ensure that

product freshness and shelf

life are guaranteed in every

pack that leaves the factory,

an effective monitoring

system is also a vital part

of a successful packing

operation. The importance of

this is demonstrated by figures

from WRAP (the Waste &

Resources Action Programme)

that showed that packaging

leaks have been associated

with almost 500,000 tonnes

of food wasted in production

each year in recent times.

PREVENTING LEAKAGES

Equally important, if the

leaking pack is not detected

before it reaches the consumer,

the dangers of damaging

brand and company reputation

are immense – and these can

be played out very publicly

in today’s social media

obsessed world.

To prevent this, there is

a wide choice of inspection

equipment available.

Preserving shelf life is just

one of the requirements of

an effective packing line,

along with other critical

considerations such as

maximising efficiencies and

throughput. Therefore, while

each machine is important in

its own right, it is also vital

that every piece of equipment

is able to integrate effectively

and operate as part of a fully

automated packing operation

that covers the weighing,

filling, sealing and inspection

of packs, and then placing

them into cartons, boxes or

Euro-trays.

“This type of integrated

approach will enable food

manufacturers to drive

out waste and maintain

production quality in

order to reduce risk and

optimise performance,” says

Vine. Equally important,

investment in this type of

equipment can deliver quick

commercial returns both by

minimising the costs incurred

by product returns, and by

ensuring consistent high

quality products that reduce

customer complaints. It also

protects brand image and

demonstrates to retailers

that they are sourcing from

responsible suppliers who

can achieve and deliver

high levels of customer

satisfaction.

“Establishing this type

of reputation can also lead

to new business as well as

helping to retain existing

contracts,” asserts Vine.

Labelling, Coding and Marking

Labelling machine is designed

to evolve to meet new demand

Herma describes the

labeller it launched

at Anuga FoodTec in

March as the first ‘evolving’

labelling machine.

This new Herma 652B

system specialises in costefficient

top and/or base

labelling of box-shaped

products but this basic

unit can be easily replaced

by higher performance

modules. Herma says this

results in a considerably

reduced investment volume

while maximising forward

compatibility.

The 652B system features

one or two Herma basic

labellers, allowing users costefficient

access to labelling

technology. At speeds of 25

metres a minute, about 100

labels per minute, even the

basic version manages both

top and base labelling in

one time-saving work step.

A keypad with a display

enables users to set the exact

speed, and the integrated

controller renders external

control cabinets unnecessary.

The machine processes

The Herma 652B system was introduced at Anuga FoodTec as future-proof

label sizes between 12 x 12

and 160 x 400mm.

However, the machine can

be easily retrofitted with one

or two high performance

Herma 400 labellers should

requirements regarding

labelling speed, precision,

and functions become more

demanding over time.

To accommodate this, the basic

model was developed with

connection points identical to

those of the Herma 400.

“For users, this means

a considerably smaller

investment volume compared

to a system that features

a Herma 400 from the start,”

says Matthias Holder,

sales director at Herma.

He believes this is of particular

benefit to smaller businesses

introducing new products, as

labelling output can be very

hard to estimate.

In addition, the new

labelling machine features

a variable speed conveyor belt

and can be easily integrated

into existing production lines.

Additionally, it can process a

wide range of product formats

– the maximum product size

is 260 (w) x 280 mm (h)

with any length. Various

application mechanisms can

be used depending on the

structure of the surfaces that

need to be labelled. By default,

label transfer is carried out

via a rigid beak with a roller,

a spring-loaded roller, or a

brush. A pneumatic pivot beak

can also be supplied.

“The Herma 652B enables

quick, flexible, and economic

reaction to market changes,”

says Martin Kühl, head of

Herma’s Labelling Machines

Division. “That is an essential

advantage for users in

small and medium-sized

companies in the food

industry where profit margins

are often slim.”

Components

Guidance system helps

to deliver functionality

High speed, high volume

and low maintenance

were the performance

demands placed on linear

motion company HepcoMotion

for a challenging packaging

application for Bosch Packaging

Technology in partnership with

its recently acquired company,

the Kliklok Corporation.

The combination of

Beckhoff’s XTS and Hepco’s

GFX guidance system has

enabled Bosch to develop a

new product, boasting one of

the highest speeds available

for a solution with such a

small footprint. Hepco’s GFX

guidance for Beckhoff XTS

is a highly versatile product

that is rapidly being adopted

in the packaging industry

for applications such as this,

where users are looking to

benefit from vastly improved

production rates with the

ability to make on the fly

product changes.

The Kliklok integrated

topload cartoner (ITC) forms top

load style cartons or trays and

automatically loads wrapped

products into them before

closing. It is a single integrated

solution with three functions;

carton forming, loading and

closing – using one operator

and one HMI. Central to this

new machine is the intelligent

transport system that is used

to control and move the cartons

from forming, right through

to the finished pack. And this

is where the GFX HepcoMotion

guidance system for Beckhoff’s

XTS eXtended transport system

is used.

Linear motion company

HepcoMotion has worked with

Beckhoff to develop specialised

versions of the PRT2 and 1-Trak

guidance systems to work with

the Beckhoff XTS.

LONG TERM DURABILITY

This option meets the needs of

higher duty XTS applications

where motion profiles and long

term durability requirements

are particularly demanding.

The Beckhoff XTS uses

linear motor technology to

drive independently controlled

movers around a track.

This is particularly useful in

this application as it allows

The Kliklok integrated (ITC) cartoner forms top load style cartons or trays

Improved production rates and also product changes on the fly are delivered

dwell at the operation stations.

An individual mover can

therefore be controlled and

stopped at an operation station

irrespective of the other movers.

As each operation takes a

different amount of time, this is

an advantage for the Kliklok ITC

as throughput is not limited by

the slowest process.

In this application, the

Beckhoff XTS system integrates

Hepco’s patented 1-Trak

guidance system. Lightweight

three bearing movers follow

a track comprising straight

and circular arc sections and

a clothoid curved transition.

This shape gives a gentler

motion for the movers and

allows the machine to run

faster and more smoothly than

would be possible for an oval

shaped ‘running track’.

The system rigidity offered

by Hepco’s GFX track system

is a core benefit for Kliklok

– particularly for the carton

forming module. The hardened

steel guidance system is based

on Hepco’s proven and precise

V guide technology, which

rigidly guides the movers

around the track. This ensures

accurate alignment and

resistance to deflection to avoid

inconsistent carton forming.

with a 3-colour and 3-label

screen display that can rotate

in increments of 90 degrees,

allowing operators to take notes

and set the flow switch while

checking the measured value.

Furthermore, an analogue

output gives more detailed

information of an application’s

performance. In addition, the

external input can reset the

accumulated, peak and bottom

values without the need for

any manipulation.

switch offers our customers

greater flexibility and

functionality, while being very

simple to set and operate,

this coupled with low air loss,

makes the PF3A7#H the ideal

product for those who care about

energy efficiency,” says an SMC

made of aluminium alloy, the

PF3A7#H is also very durable.

The key to size-change

improvement when using hand

driven cranks is capturing

the linear movements of the

machine components and

bringing them into the control

system and then providing

‘smart’ visual feedback to the

machine operator during setup.

To achieve this, a new

encoder interface: BML SL1

option has eliminated the

problem of non-absolute

feedback and the hassle

of absolute position signal

interface: IO-Link. This

absolute position indication

combined with the ease and

regarding which direction

and how far to turn the hand

cranks. Balluff provides the

answer in the form of an

Regulations

Staying on the right

side of WEEE

Paul Laidler Taylor

Business MANAGER director FOR MACHINERY for Machinery SAFETY saftey AT TÜV At SÜD Tüv PRODUCT Süd Product SERVICE service

Compliance with the WEEE Directive can be complex, so machinery builders must ascertain if their

equipment falls within its scope, and if so ensure that it is recycled and treated appropriately

Last issue, we looked

at the Restriction of

Hazardous Substances

(RoHS) Directive. Whereas

this sets restrictions as to

the material content of new

electronic equipment placed

on the market, the Waste

Electrical and Electronic

Equipment (WEEE) Directive

2012/19/EU sets collection,

recycling and recovery targets.

Consequently, the RoHS

Directive takes much of its

scope from the more complex

WEEE Directive.

Many in the machinery

industry may assume that

the WEEE Directive does not

apply to them, as three of the

Directive’s exclusions include:

• large-scale stationary tools

• large-scale fixed

installations

• non-road mobile machinery

made available exclusively

for professional use.

DEFINITIONS ARE KEY

According to the Directive,

large-scale stationary

industrial tools are defined

as: “a large-scale assembly of

machines, equipment, and/

or components, functioning

together for a specific

application, permanently

installed and de-installed by

professionals at a given place,

and used and maintained by

professionals in an industrial

manufacturing facility or

research and development

facility”.

Meanwhile, large scale fixed

installations are defined as:

“a large-size combination of

several types of apparatus

and, where applicable, other

devices which:

(a) are assembled,

installed and de-installed by

professionals

(b) are intended to be used

permanently as part of a

building or a structure at a

pre-defined and dedicated

location; and

(c) can only be replaced by

the same specifically designed

equipment”.

Finally, non-road mobile

machinery is defined by the

Directive as: “machinery, with

an on-board power source, the

operation of which requires

either mobility or continuous

or semi-continuous movement

between a succession of fixed

working locations while

working”.

However, not all machinery

is covered by these exclusions

as smaller industrial

equipment, including

luminaires and electrical

and electronic tools such as

spraying or cutting equipment

does in fact still fall under the

WEEE Directive.

The WEEE Directives

regulations place specific

obligations on producers of

non-household EEE when

it is discarded as waste by

non-household end users

in the European Union.

As with household WEEE, the

producer of commercial EEE

equipment must finance its

collection, treatment, recovery

and environmentally sound

disposal when it is discarded.

However, the Directive

does give business a little

more flexibility than that

experienced in the consumer

WEEE market. This is

because producers of the

equipment and its end users

are allowed to make their own

contractual arrangements

for the appropriate disposal

of WEEE, and are not bound

by the default arrangements

required within the Directive

for household waste.

Some local authorities accept

WEEE from small businesses for

which there is normally a charge

This means that two

routes can be chosen for the

correct collection, treatment,

recovery and disposal of

unwanted EEE:

1) A commercial agreement

for the producer to dispose

of the WEEE on behalf of the

end user

2) The end user takes

responsibility for the disposal

of the WEEE.

If a commercial agreement

is entered into for the producer

to dispose of the WEEE on

behalf of the end user, they

must report the relevant data

to their Producer Compliance

Scheme. However, if the

agreement is for the end

user to be responsible for the

WEEE, the Directive places

no obligations about the

nature of these arrangements,

and consequently there is

no requirement for either

party to report data to the

agencies. However, both

parties must ensure that they

have documented proof that

such an agreement has been

reached, and the business

end-user is also obliged to

comply with the regulations

by ensuring the satisfactory

collection, treatment, recovery

and environmentally sound

disposal of the WEEE.

COLLECTION POINTS

Original producers of EEE

are allowed to take two routes

for the collection of waste.

The first is for the direct

collection of WEEE from

end-users. The second route

is the creation of central

collection points, where

the WEEE can be returned

by the end user for treatment,

reuse and recycling.

As non-household end users

of EEE do not have a legal right

for the collection of WEEE

from their own premises,

or the right of free access to

the Designated Collection

Facilities network, it is likely

that the option of a centralised

collection point will be most

efficient and cost effective for

both producers and end users.

Of course, some local

authorities accept WEEE from

small businesses for which

there is normally a charge for

this ‘trade waste’.
