Mark Williamson<br />

CHAIRMAN PPMA GROUP OF ASSOCIATIONS<br />

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

Welcome to Machinery Update, we hope you enjoy this<br />

packed <strong>March</strong>/<strong>April</strong> issue.<br />

I believe face to face meetings can never be replaced<br />

and while in the past, many people have said that exhibitions<br />

would be superseded by the internet, good events continue to<br />

thrive. Our own PPMA Show bears testament to this fact and<br />

will continue its success of recent years this autumn.<br />

Indeed, this year’s show is already larger with more companies<br />

confirmed to be at the NEC, Birmingham 25-27 September.<br />

In this issue, exhibitions take centre stage with previews<br />

of key industry events such as Foodex (see pages 28-35),<br />

Drives and Controls and Mach <strong>2018</strong> (page 66) and also a review<br />

of the recent Southern Manufacturing (see pages 46-47).<br />

Vision systems are now<br />

a key enabler for automation as<br />

the MVC event will demonstrate<br />

Automation remains a key driver in machinery development and<br />

in this issue we have an in depth feature on ready meals, a sector<br />

where automation is critical, as well as complicated. Convenience<br />

meals typically have more production processes than other food<br />

items and so inspection also plays a key role in factories. Robustness<br />

is another demand of equipment used to handle, say viscous<br />

sauces. It was the robustness of one tray sealer, for example, that<br />

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

When family firm Mumtaz first started manufacturing<br />

ready meals at the back of its Indian restaurant in Bradford in<br />

the 1990s, it purchased a second-hand tray sealer to handle<br />

its volumes. Today, and backed by a multi-million pound<br />

investment in a new ready meals facility, this tray sealer is still<br />

being used for smaller production quantities and NPD.<br />

The proof was literally in the pudding when the company<br />

made its decision about a new tray sealing line for its factory.<br />

Machinery Update was invited to this impressive site in<br />

February, and you will find the full report on pages 50-51.<br />

Continuing the theme of automation, one of the largest growth<br />

areas is its relationship with machine vision and automated<br />

inspection. If you are looking to learn about how this exciting<br />

technology can benefit your company, why not attend the<br />

upcoming Machine Vision Conference (see pages 24-27). Now in<br />

its second year after its successful launch in 2017, it takes place<br />

on Wednesday 16 May at the MK Arena in Milton Keynes.<br />

It’s a must attend event if you want to stay ahead.<br />

The plastics<br />

debate takes<br />

centre stage<br />

Cutting-edge applications<br />

can deliver everyday gain<br />

n<br />

As the dispute about plastics<br />

packaging rages throughout the<br />

mainstream media, two recent<br />

events have brought it to the fore<br />

in the manufacturing sector.<br />

In January, a Westminster<br />

Forum keynote seminar was<br />

dominated by talk about<br />

plastics while the Packaging<br />

Innovations exhibition at the<br />

NEC in Birmingham in <strong>March</strong><br />

played host to a new feature –<br />

The Big Plastics Debate.<br />

Coca-Cola European Partners<br />

(CCEP), the Co-Op, Marks &<br />

Spencer and Iceland formed an<br />

expert panel during the debate<br />

and the discussion proved<br />

so popular that it had to be<br />

live-streamed on four of the other<br />

exhibition stages to house the<br />

interested audience. Innovation,<br />

collaboration and ambition<br />

came up as the key themes<br />

during the discussions.<br />

The panel agreed that more<br />

needs to be done to battle the<br />

use of plastics and highlighted<br />

that litter plays a major role in<br />

bringing the subject of packaging<br />

to the public’s attention. They<br />

also felt that as leading retailers,<br />

they should be doing more to<br />

combat the issue, using their<br />

influence to change the way the<br />

industry works with the material.<br />

“Our aim is to make our<br />

packaging as sustainable as<br />

possible and I think it is fair to<br />

say that all of the panel have the<br />

same ambition,” said Nick Brown,<br />

head of sustainability at CCEP.<br />

The Big Plastics Debate was popular<br />

Professor Tim Pipe will speak first<br />

The keynote speeches to<br />

be given at the Machine<br />

Vision Conference on<br />

Robots draw the<br />

London street<br />

Two Universal Robots UR10<br />

articulated arms are capturing<br />

the attention of those passing the<br />

display window of a prestigious<br />

new store in London’s West End.<br />

Global sportswear giant ASICS<br />

has recently opened its flagship<br />

European retail premises on<br />

Regent Street, where front of<br />

house UR10 robots – supplied<br />

and commissioned by RARUK<br />

Automation – are engaging<br />

Budgets identified as<br />

major training barrier<br />

Drives and controls<br />

company Bosch Rexroth<br />

says a limited training<br />

budget is a major barrier to<br />

competitiveness, directly<br />

impacting profitability.<br />

This follows a survey it<br />

commissioned that highlights<br />

the correlation between<br />

training adoption and budget,<br />

and the impact this is<br />

having on the implementation<br />

of Industry 4.0.<br />

Called ‘Tackling the training<br />

gap in UK manufacturing’,<br />

the report found that 43%<br />

of engineers identify budget<br />

constraints as one of the<br />

key barriers to adopting<br />

a more rigorous training<br />

plan. Furthermore, over half<br />

of respondents anticipate<br />

training budgets will stagnate<br />

in their organisation over the<br />

next five years.<br />

In the UK, ‘automation’ is<br />

an area which is dramatically<br />

increasing, however<br />

productivity – measured both<br />

by output per worker and per<br />

hour worked – is significantly<br />

lower against the UK’s major<br />

trading partners in Europe<br />

Riggs <strong>MU</strong> J-F <strong>2018</strong>.qxp_<strong>MU</strong> 05/12/2017 15:00 Page 1<br />

‘Tackling the training gap in UK manufacturing’ is available for download<br />

and the US. For this reason,<br />

it is worrying to discover<br />

that automated production<br />

processes and modern<br />

automation techniques were<br />

identified in the report as<br />

the areas where the greatest<br />

gaps in knowledge exist,<br />

says Richard Chamberlain,<br />

service product manager at<br />

Bosch Rexroth.<br />

The study also revealed<br />

that in as many as a quarter<br />

of companies, less than ten<br />

hours of training is delivered<br />

to employees each year on<br />

average.<br />

“We must upskill the<br />

workforce and empower<br />

engineers with the skills<br />

they need to use Industry 4.0<br />

technologies, while offering<br />

continuous development<br />

opportunities to individuals<br />

is vital,” says Chamberlain.<br />

Study findings show in<br />

many instances, the UK<br />

approach to training seems<br />

to be an activity squeezed<br />

in around day-to-day<br />

operational requirements<br />

rather than being seen as<br />

a core value-adding<br />

function.

New research should bring<br />

ingredients handling gains<br />

Engineers, food<br />

technologists and<br />

computer scientists<br />

drawn from UK industry and<br />

academia, are collaborating<br />

to fully automate the<br />

preparation and handling<br />

of raw materials to therefore<br />

reduce the associated costs.<br />

OAL (Olympus Automation),<br />

a supplier of engineering<br />

solutions to the food industry,<br />

is leading the new industrial<br />

R&D project in collaboration<br />

with researchers from the<br />

University of Lincoln, and the<br />

English Provender Company,<br />

part of the Billington Group<br />

and producer of condiments,<br />

dressings and marinades.<br />

The project is aiming to<br />

address the unique complexity<br />

of food manufacturing<br />

ingredient variability. In a<br />

given day, food manufacturers<br />

can deal with over 200<br />

different raw materials in<br />

different states (solid, liquid,<br />

frozen, ambient and chilled),<br />

packaging formats (bag, sack,<br />

box and drum), allergens and<br />

handling difficulties. It is this<br />

complexity that to date, has<br />

led to high<br />

manning<br />

levels,<br />

waste and<br />

inefficiencies<br />

across the<br />

industry.<br />

team is exploring how<br />

to integrate robotic and<br />

step of the production process.<br />

“The ability to accurately<br />

and efficiently prepare,<br />

within our product portfolio<br />

really is the engine<br />

New Machinery<br />

Bagger launch will bring<br />

benefits to snack makers<br />

tna unveiled the tna robag 5,<br />

the latest generation<br />

of its flagship series of<br />

VFFS technology, in a world<br />

premiere at SNAXPO <strong>2018</strong><br />

in <strong>March</strong>. The tna robag 5<br />

will form the final piece in<br />

tna performance 5.0, the<br />

company’s answer to ultrahigh<br />

speed production line<br />

operation. Together with the<br />

recently launched tna ropac 5,<br />

the high speed case packer for<br />

flexible bags, tna’s new VFFS<br />

system is designed to deliver<br />

unprecedented productivity<br />

levels with one of the<br />

industry’s smallest footprints.<br />

“2017 was a huge<br />

year for us at tna as we<br />

launched performance 5.0,<br />

a new approach to doubling<br />

production line performance,”<br />

says Alf Taylor, CEO at tna.<br />

“The first part of performance<br />

5.0, the tna ropac 5, was<br />

incredibly well-received.<br />

Everyone that came to see<br />

it in action last year quickly<br />

realised that we had just<br />

introduced technology to the<br />

market that doesn’t just offer a<br />

small increase in productivity,<br />

RNA has developed an<br />

automated robotic packaging<br />

system for two different types<br />

of filler caps. The system<br />

utilises a machine mounted<br />

Nachi MZ07L robot with a<br />

bespoke gripper system to<br />

suit the filler cap and the<br />

corrugated interleafs.<br />

To begin the cycle, the filler<br />

caps are transferred from the<br />

pad printer out-feed conveyor<br />

and orientated and queued<br />

up ready for the robot to pick<br />

and place. The robot cell picks<br />

a filler cap when a signal is<br />

The new tna robag 5 will deliver high bagging speeds and changeover times<br />

but that this system has<br />

the potential to transform<br />

the industry by doubling<br />

the current maximum case<br />

packaging speeds,” he says.<br />

The new tna robag 5 will<br />

not only deliver the ultrahigh<br />

bagging speeds, but also<br />

provide faster changeovers,<br />

intuitively designed<br />

technology, advanced<br />

equipment integration and<br />

more product capabilities in a<br />

single, highly compact system.<br />

Together with tna’s portfolio<br />

of advanced food processing<br />

solutions, these new machines<br />

will allow snack food<br />

manufacturers to take their<br />

production line performance<br />

to new levels, providing<br />

them with a significant<br />

economic advantage over their<br />

competitors, says the company.<br />

Ensuring a<br />

CIP process<br />

is optimum<br />

The CombiLyz conductivity meter<br />

from Baumer is designed to<br />

ensure the optimum interaction<br />

of all the different physical<br />

parameters in CIP (clean-inplace)<br />

systems.<br />

The exact concentration of<br />

cleaning agents, while taking<br />

into account flow rate, pressure,<br />

temperature and time, defines<br />

a reproducible process which<br />

demands systems and components<br />

which have the technical properties<br />

and flexibility to support CIP safely<br />

and cost-effectively, says Baumer.<br />

With an accuracy of ±1% and a<br />

measuring range of 500 µS/cm<br />

to 1000 mS/cm, the CombiLyz<br />

conductivity meter offers CIP<br />

system operators the important<br />

features and benefits for optimum<br />

process control. It also delivers<br />

fast and accurate temperature<br />

compensation.<br />

Where CIP systems require<br />

acids or alkalis, accurate<br />

measurement of concentration<br />

levels is essential. When the<br />

concentration of the acid or alkali<br />

is increasing, the conductivity<br />

meter controls the specified<br />

concentration of the relevant<br />

cleaning media. Thanks to<br />

precise measurements, it ensures<br />

that no more chemicals are<br />

used than necessary helping<br />

to minimise waste.<br />

During the phase separation in<br />

the CIP return flow, the CombiLyz<br />

quickly recognises different media,<br />

even when temperatures fluctuate<br />

significantly which helps to reduce<br />

the loss of stored cleaning agents.<br />

After one cleaning cycle, the<br />

CombiLyz accurately measures<br />

the remaining chemicals in<br />

the rinse water.<br />

Changing products can<br />

be completed at speed<br />

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

Krones has recognised the<br />

need for ever-speedier<br />

product changeovers<br />

and faster make-ready times<br />

by developing LineXpress –<br />

a program that enables<br />

non-returnable PET lines for<br />

water and carbonated soft<br />

drinks bottles to be changed<br />

over in record times.<br />

This new program is not<br />

only fast – only ten minutes<br />

of production downtime is<br />

required if the changeover<br />

comprises only intermediate<br />

rinsing and a change in closure<br />

colour, label and packing<br />

film. But, this automated<br />

process also removes<br />

all the ‘imponderables’<br />

often associated with the<br />

changeover process such as<br />

human factors. Even if the<br />

bottle format and the pack’s<br />

formation and nature are<br />

changed, the line can still<br />

resume production after an<br />

interruption of just half an<br />

hour when using LineXpress.<br />

When multi-format lines are<br />

involved, benefits delivered<br />

by the program include higher<br />

productivity with a line of equal<br />

size, or the same productivity<br />

with a smaller line.<br />

In both cases, says Krones,<br />

the overall equipment<br />

effectiveness (OEE) rises by<br />

up to 20 %. This is because<br />

LineXpress<br />

• coordinates all steps in the<br />

process that are needed for<br />

the changeover<br />

• enables essential operations<br />

in the changeover to be fully<br />

automated<br />

• guides the operators reliably<br />

and quickly through the<br />

entire process, and<br />

• enables process steps to<br />

be carried out in parallel,<br />

instead of one after another.<br />

This smoothly coordinated<br />

routine not only increases<br />

productivity levels of<br />

beverage lines, it also creates<br />

significant gains in flexibility.<br />

Thus, short changeover times<br />

enable the same article to be<br />

produced more often and also<br />

in smaller batches without<br />

losing out on productivity,<br />

in order to tie up less<br />

warehousing capacity,<br />

for example, or even to<br />

implement demand-responsive<br />

just-in-time production.<br />

LineXpress can also be<br />

used to progress upgrades<br />

in brand development cost<br />

effectively, says Krones UK.<br />

For instance, if a brand owner<br />

has previously only used a few<br />

bottle sizes and designs, it can<br />

now utilise a wider choice of<br />

packaging formats without<br />

putting the cost-efficiency of<br />

production lines at risk.<br />

SPECIAL COMPONENTS<br />

The LineXpress system<br />

consists of individual<br />

automation components<br />

called the UnitXpress building<br />

blocks. These, in conjunction<br />

with the machine, control<br />

the processes involved and<br />

support the operators. These<br />

automation components<br />

can be specified to suit the<br />

wishes of the customer but,<br />

generally, the following<br />

machines can be incorporated<br />

into the LineXpress system:<br />

Contiflow mixer, Contiform<br />

stretch blowmoulder, Contiroll<br />

labeller, Modulfill filler,<br />

Checkmat inspector, Variopac<br />

Pro packer, Modulpal Pro<br />

palletiser, SynCo container<br />

conveyor, MultiCo pack<br />

conveyor and the PalCo pallet<br />

conveyor.<br />

Resources and costs are saved<br />

Pallets are<br />

stabilised<br />

with gluing<br />

Robatech has developed an<br />

AntiSlip gluing solution for pallet<br />

stabilisation which, in practice,<br />

sees a hot melt adhesive applied<br />

directly onto the packaging units<br />

which can reduce the need for all<br />

kinds of packaging materials and<br />

also intermediate layer pads.<br />

Pallet stabilisation with<br />

AntiSlip gluing is combining<br />

existing processes and methods<br />

making it possible to drastically<br />

reduce the need to wrap each<br />

pallet intensively, the company<br />

tells Machinery Update.<br />

With the AntiSlip gluing<br />

solution, lines or spirals of<br />

hot melt adhesive are applied<br />

directly onto the packaging<br />

units, ensuring that the units<br />

stick together reliably. Fewer<br />

layers of packaging are therefore<br />

required for dust protection while<br />

stable transport and storage<br />

is guaranteed as the adhesive<br />

bond means units do not move<br />

around in transit. In addition,<br />

simple depalletising with little<br />

waste is possible. So, says<br />

Robatech, the solution is not only<br />

environmentally friendly but also<br />

cost-efficient. And the system<br />

can simply be integrated into the<br />

production process or retrofitted.<br />

“Less material means less<br />

waste and the bonding assures a<br />

very stable pallet, which reduces<br />

the risk of damaging any goods<br />

when the pallet is unwrapped,<br />

which all contributes to savings,”<br />

says Hanspeter Huber, industry<br />

manager packaging at Robatech.<br />

New Machinery<br />

Modular robot cell can help to<br />

ease the path to full automation<br />

New from RARUK<br />

Automation is a<br />

compact, mobile and<br />

modular robot cell that can<br />

be easily moved between<br />

production and processing<br />

machines to increase<br />

productivity. It is designed<br />

to accept a robot arm – such<br />

as a Universal Robot; also<br />

from RARUK Automation –<br />

and can be systematically<br />

expanded to give<br />

manufacturers a growth path<br />

to full automation.<br />

FOUNDATION PRODUCT<br />

ProFeeder Light is the<br />

foundation product which<br />

comprises a basic, standalone<br />

unit with one manually<br />

removable parts tray with<br />

a capacity of up to 780 units,<br />

depending on their size.<br />

Ideal for use with most CNC<br />

machines, ProFeeder Light<br />

can handle a wide variety<br />

of parts up to 10kg and is used<br />

as extra ‘manpower’<br />

for small batch production<br />

or the first step towards<br />

greater automation.<br />

It can also be expanded<br />

The system automatically sends a text alert to the operator if there is a stop<br />

at any time to incorporate<br />

additional functions such as<br />

turning, deburring or cleaning.<br />

The next in the threemodel<br />

range is ProFeeder<br />

which comes complete with<br />

two movers and two parts<br />

trays. The mover is a modular<br />

cart which, when placed in<br />

the robot cell, automatically<br />

centres the parts tray. When<br />

YPS <strong>MU</strong> M-A <strong>2018</strong>.qxp_<strong>MU</strong> 20/02/<strong>2018</strong> 11:26 Page 1<br />

the parts have been processed,<br />

the first mover and tray are<br />

replaced by the second mover<br />

with unprocessed parts.<br />

Interchangeable perforated<br />

plates in the parts trays ensure<br />

that the CNC machine can<br />

be fed with all part types<br />

and these can be replaced<br />

with thin plate feeding for<br />

operations such as edge<br />

bending or even a custom<br />

feeding solution.<br />

The third option is ProFeeder<br />

Multi that introduces a lift<br />

module that automatically<br />

presents trays to the machine<br />

for parts to be processed;<br />

its capacity is eight trays.<br />

This solution makes it possible<br />

to run a fully automated<br />

four-shift operation or even<br />

lights out production.<br />

Manual input is limited to<br />

machine supervision,<br />

pre-filling the parts trays<br />

and replacing the mover at<br />

the end of the fourth shift.<br />

All ProFeeder systems can<br />

be quickly moved to a new<br />

station with a pallet truck.<br />

Set-up is easy and quick as it<br />

only requires connection to<br />

electricity and compressed<br />

air. The system’s compact<br />

design allows it to be used<br />

with most types of processing<br />

or production machines and,<br />

as the robot arm can be fixed<br />

on three sides of the cell,<br />

application flexibility<br />

is ensured, says RARUK.<br />

Tamper evident labelling will<br />

deliver full FMD compliance<br />

Newman Labelling<br />

Systems is providing<br />

customers with two<br />

labelling solutions – the<br />

CTE350 and CTE450 – to<br />

ensure compliance with the<br />

Falsified Medicines Directive<br />

(FMD) 2011/62/EU.<br />

The FMD requires two<br />

mandatory safety features that<br />

enable medicines to be verified<br />

and authenticated along<br />

the supply chain: tamper<br />

evident features and a unique<br />

identifier on the carton.<br />

THE TWO LABELLERS<br />

CAN RUN AT UP TO<br />

400<br />

cartons a minute on the faster<br />

model and 350 a minute on<br />

the more compact machine<br />

Newman says its CTE350<br />

and CTE450 automatic<br />

tamper evident labellers<br />

enable customers to meet<br />

these new regulations, while<br />

also providing high levels<br />

of flexibility and reliability.<br />

Designed to apply a range of<br />

self-adhesive tamper-evident,<br />

anti-counterfeit and hologram<br />

labels, a single machine can<br />

handle a wide range of carton<br />

types and sizes.<br />

The CTE350 measures just<br />

over 1 metre in length and is<br />

ideal for integrating in to lines<br />

where space is at a premium.<br />

Where higher speeds are<br />

required, the CTE450 is the<br />

better option to use.<br />

Newman can also integrate<br />

different print and inspection<br />

20 MACHINERY UPDATE MARCH/APRIL <strong>2018</strong> www.machineryupdate.co.uk<br />

New Machinery<br />

Integrated solution for<br />

seamless track & trace<br />

Anew technology from<br />

Romaco enabling the<br />

implementation of<br />

anti-counterfeiting devices<br />

for cartons was on show at<br />

this year’s Pharmapack in<br />

Paris. The Promatic PTT<br />

track & trace machine can<br />

be flexibly configured and<br />

integrated into new or existing<br />

pharmaceutical secondary<br />

packaging lines.<br />

The Promatic PTT was<br />

developed by Romaco as a new<br />

platform for anti-counterfeiting<br />

systems for carton<br />

identification. The integration<br />

of this track & trace machine<br />

in a secondary packaging<br />

line enables pharmaceutical<br />

packaging to be tracked<br />

seamlessly along the entire<br />

supply chain. It can be either<br />

implemented in a new line<br />

configuration or retrofitted in an<br />

existing one, depending on the<br />

specification, and operates at<br />

up to 400 cartons a minute.<br />

Also, it makes no difference<br />

whether the PTT module<br />

is connected to a Promatic<br />

continuous or intermittent<br />

motion cartoner or to any<br />

The Promatic PTT track & trace can be integrated into new or existing lines<br />

third-party apparatus.<br />

The servo-driven machine<br />

works independently; it allows<br />

synchronised operation of the<br />

upstream and downstream<br />

line components as well as<br />

positive transfer of the cartons<br />

by means of toothed belts.<br />

Variable data and the<br />

Pharmacode – either 2D Data<br />

Matrix or a QR code – are<br />

first printed on the side of the<br />

packs which can then be read<br />

optically and verified using<br />

OCR/OCV.<br />

Furthermore, a vignette<br />

can be applied to the top of<br />

the cartons in order to comply<br />

with the regulations across a<br />

range of countries. The flaps<br />

at both ends of the cartons<br />

can then be sealed with<br />

security labels for even more<br />

effective protection against<br />

counterfeiting. Once again,<br />

these tamper-evident features<br />

are checked to confirm they<br />

have been applied correctly.<br />

To this end, its portfolio of<br />

software allows companies an<br />

entry point into the connected<br />

factory that is tailored to<br />

their needs, from starter kits<br />

and retrofit solutions to the<br />

complete package. That means<br />

that individual lines can be<br />

combined, and factories and<br />

plant networks, including<br />

their internal and external<br />

logistics, interconnected.<br />

The aim is to assist<br />

businesses and their<br />

New Machinery<br />

New app controls robot<br />

operations in a new way<br />

With the aim of creating<br />

a more intuitive,<br />

easier and faster way<br />

to control industrial robots,<br />

Comau has released PickAPP,<br />

an Android application<br />

to perform pick and place<br />

operations in a completely<br />

new way.<br />

Until now, robot<br />

programmers were skilled<br />

technicians who used a teach<br />

pendant device (robot remote<br />

control) to interact with the<br />

robot. Comau says it has<br />

reversed this scenario with its<br />

‘ease of use’ new APP which<br />

is designed to improve the<br />

customer experience.<br />

PickAPP is an Android<br />

application for an 8-10 inch<br />

tablet, configured with<br />

graphical operations which<br />

are said to improve the overall<br />

user experience. Thanks to this<br />

application, anyone familiar<br />

with smartphones will be able<br />

to move a robot and create a<br />

pick and place process simply<br />

preparing a list of waypoints,<br />

without having to learn robotic<br />

programming language.<br />

The user moves the robot<br />

Kecol <strong>MU</strong> M-A <strong>2018</strong>.qxp_<strong>MU</strong> 09/03/<strong>2018</strong> 16:00 Page 1<br />

PickAPP is currently available for low payload robots, but more will follow<br />

manually by pulling and<br />

pushing robot joints, or using<br />

the interface in a similar<br />

way that is used for toy<br />

cars or drones. Additional<br />

configurations, like the type<br />

of movement and the actions<br />

related to a gripper, can be<br />

easily added.<br />

The application has been<br />

developed by multiple users<br />

with a different approach<br />

than the one usually used for<br />

standard industrial processes,<br />

says Comau. A sample group<br />

of testers, ranging from expert<br />

technicians to young people<br />

who play games on a tablet,<br />

were able to perform the<br />

programming required for<br />

a pick and place process in<br />

just a few minutes, and<br />

without any prior training.<br />

PickAPP is available for<br />

Comau low payload robots,<br />

such as Rebel-S (SCARA),<br />

Racer3 and Racer5 (3 to 5kg<br />

payload), and will soon be<br />

implemented for the entire<br />

Comau robot family.<br />

Witt’s MG50-MEM+ device<br />

Two or three gases<br />

can now be mixed<br />

by remote control<br />

Witt is now offering a device<br />

for mixing two or three gases<br />

at higher flow rates – the new<br />

MG50-MEM+ gas mixer – and it<br />

can also be operated remotely.<br />

Its operation can be controlled<br />

via PC, PLC or machine control<br />

system. All parameters can<br />

be conveniently called up, set,<br />

queried and documented. A new<br />

additional touchscreen display<br />

can be used by the operator to<br />

check the current settings or to<br />

change the device parameters.<br />

The new gas mixer works<br />

with motorised valves that are<br />

actuated electronically which<br />

means higher accuracy and speed<br />

of response, says Witt, with fewer<br />

than three seconds required to<br />

get the gas mixture flowing at the<br />

desired value.<br />

Large or awkward pallets are<br />

wrapped with ease on ‘Ferret’<br />

Samuel Grant Packaging<br />

has launched the Samson<br />

Nano Ferret, an extension<br />

to its pallet wrapping range<br />

that is suitable for awkward<br />

pallets that are unable to fit<br />

onto a standard turntable.<br />

Developed by Italian<br />

engineers, Ferret is the direct<br />

translation of their name for<br />

the machine – ‘Viverra’.<br />

The Ferret will be available<br />

on the same ‘price per<br />

wrapped pallet’ basis as<br />

the existing Samson Nano,<br />

meaning that the machine,<br />

as well as its maintenance and<br />

upkeep are capex free, as is the<br />

film – clients simply pay<br />

a fixed price per wrapped<br />

pallet. As with the Samson<br />

Nano, the machine is<br />

optimised to make the most<br />

of Samson’s Nano 33-layer<br />

stretchfilm, ensuring the<br />

best possible stability, and<br />

making sure that goods reach<br />

their destination in perfect<br />

condition.<br />

The machine is fitted with<br />

inbuilt reporting software like<br />

its big brother, which means<br />

that clients can see how the<br />

machine is operating from<br />

wherever they may be.<br />

Integrating vision into<br />

machine automation<br />

Automation<br />

specialist B&R<br />

is introducing<br />

an image processing<br />

solution to the<br />

UK market at the<br />

Machine Vision<br />

Conference (MVC).<br />

This solution was<br />

first introduced at<br />

SPS IPC Drives in<br />

Germany at the end<br />

of last year, and<br />

makes machine<br />

vision an integral<br />

element of the<br />

automation ecosystem.<br />

It includes<br />

cameras, software<br />

and lighting accessories<br />

and is designed to be<br />

seamlessly incorporated in<br />

the automation system.<br />

“Vision has often been an<br />

add-on when dealing with<br />

robot automation,” says<br />

Stephen Radcliffe, marketing<br />

manager for the UK & Ireland<br />

at B&R Automation. “Our new<br />

option takes out a whole layer<br />

of processing and the reaction<br />

from machine builders at<br />

launch was overwhelmingly<br />

positive,” he says.<br />

Acrovision, one of the UK’s<br />

vision inspection and barcode<br />

reading integrators, will be<br />

showing a cobot (collaborative<br />

robot) working with its smart<br />

vision cameras at the<br />

one-day event.<br />

The company says it is<br />

finding that integrating cobots<br />

into vision applications<br />

is providing a safe and<br />

cost-effective solution to many<br />

vision applications where<br />

product handling is an issue.<br />

Recent applications include<br />

guiding the robot with vision,<br />

B&R’s vision portfolio ranges from simple to high-end units<br />

At the heart of the solution is<br />

a broad selection of intelligent<br />

camera technology. Options<br />

at the lower end will replace<br />

simple machine vision sensors,<br />

while the top of the range<br />

will harness the full potential<br />

of high-end smart cameras.<br />

Also, ready-made software<br />

components are available for<br />

creating applications with<br />

minimal new programming.<br />

Lighting elements are<br />

available integrated in the<br />

camera, as an external<br />

device, or even as a<br />

combination of the<br />

two. This makes<br />

extremely precise<br />

synchronisation<br />

for high-speed<br />

image capture and<br />

object-specific<br />

functions such as<br />

bright-field or darkfield<br />

illumination<br />

easy to implement.<br />

Image triggers and<br />

lighting control can<br />

be synchronised<br />

with the rest of<br />

the automation<br />

system in hard real<br />

time and with submicrosecond<br />

precision.<br />

B&R’s machine vision<br />

system is integrated on every<br />

level: the engineering tool,<br />

the real-time operating system<br />

and the application software.<br />

With a single development<br />

environment for every aspect<br />

of automation, controls<br />

engineers will now be able<br />

to implement many machine<br />

vision tasks on their own,<br />

says Radcliffe.<br />

T 01733 371320<br />

Integrating cobots into vision applications<br />

is proving a cost effective handling option<br />

providing the robot with<br />

x-y co-ordinates for<br />

‘pick-and-place’, or the robot<br />

is moving the camera for<br />

multiple inspections of the<br />

same particular part.<br />

The key advantage of using<br />

cobots is that as well as being<br />

very easy to program, they<br />

are also inherently safe<br />

(subject to risk assessment),<br />

to allow them to work with<br />

and alongside humans, says<br />

the benefits of automated date<br />

marking within the reach of<br />

many smaller and more cost<br />

sensitive food manufacturers<br />

for the first time.<br />

The RF Lite has been<br />

developed to cater for changing<br />

market dynamics and packaging<br />

demands, which are seeing<br />

smaller, thinner and complexshaped<br />

packaging sleeves being<br />

applied across a much broader<br />

and more variable range of<br />

products. The ability to handle<br />

such packaging media and<br />

formats is where the RF Lite<br />

excels, as its friction-wheel feed<br />

system can easily handle thinner<br />

and lighter sleeves whereas<br />

conventional ‘push’ or shuttle<br />

feed mechanisms would struggle.<br />

Also on show will be the<br />

offline RF Auto sleeve and<br />

carton friction feeder which<br />

incorporates a patented autogate<br />

feature that automatically<br />

adjusts to accommodate<br />

varying thicknesses of<br />

packaging materials. This<br />

automatic adjustment feature is<br />

beneficial for lines that have to<br />

accommodate multiple product<br />

changeovers – sometimes<br />

as many as 10 per day –<br />

as it eliminates set-up times<br />

and sleeve waste.<br />

Multi-equipment project has<br />

automated wood processing<br />

RM Group had to<br />

overcome several<br />

challenges when<br />

supplying equipment to<br />

automate the labour intensive<br />

process of handling large<br />

boards at SCA Timber.<br />

SCA approached RM Group<br />

to assist in the automation<br />

of depalletising 1200 mm x<br />

2400 mm boards, applying<br />

multiple labels and then<br />

restacking and strapping<br />

them ready for storage and<br />

shipment to customers.<br />

The product brief was<br />

to supply, install and<br />

commission an automatic<br />

de-palletising robot and system,<br />

capable of handling several<br />

variations of board size and<br />

stack patterns. In addition<br />

to the robotic handling<br />

equipment, the company also<br />

integrated a new automatic<br />

Bocedi strapping machine<br />

complete with four corner<br />

product protection.<br />

The installation included<br />

a roller conveyor system that<br />

receives full packs of 1200 mm<br />

x 2400 mm boards ranging<br />

in thickness from 6 mm-25 mm<br />

SCA Timber (UK) now has an operator friendly system performing reliably<br />

before presenting them to<br />

the robot for de-palletising.<br />

An ABB robot palletiser<br />

with multi-function head for<br />

handling boards was supplied<br />

as well as two Domino<br />

automatic print and apply<br />

label applicators. The fully<br />

automatic Bocedi strapping<br />

machine with corner<br />

protection was joined by<br />

a conveyor system to transport<br />

loaded packs through<br />

the strapping machine<br />

and on to the existing beam<br />

saw machine.<br />

A full safety guarding<br />

system including mesh<br />

guards, light guards and<br />

access gates with control<br />

panels and operator interface,<br />

completed the solution.<br />

One of the unique<br />

challenges of the project<br />

was that the boards have a<br />

natural suction to one another<br />

which the depalletiser had to<br />

overcome. Also, the restricted<br />

work area and high speed<br />

requirements meant the<br />

system RM Group supplied<br />

needed to be robust and<br />

efficient with quick change<br />

over between products.<br />

The system was fully<br />

pre-assembled at the RM Group<br />

factory for set up and testing of<br />

all formats as well as reducing<br />

onsite commissioning time.<br />

A detailed customer factory<br />

acceptance test was also<br />

carried out prior to despatch.<br />

In addition to RM Group<br />

factory testing, a number<br />

of tests and a pre-delivery<br />

acceptance test were carried<br />

out at the Bocedi factory<br />

in Italy. As a result, the<br />

integration and installation<br />

of the strapping machine<br />

was a smooth process.<br />

Product giveaways are<br />

no longer a food issue<br />

Aleading European food<br />

producer has reduced<br />

giveaway by 55%<br />

since installing a number<br />

of integrated combination<br />

metal detection, packaging<br />

inspection and checkweighing<br />

systems from Sparc Systems.<br />

And as the company<br />

processes 150 tonnes of meat<br />

every week, these giveaway<br />

savings are significant while<br />

the equipment has also helped<br />

to improve yield.<br />

Called Cerberus, the<br />

combination system is<br />

specifically designed for<br />

high-risk food production<br />

environments. Representing<br />

an investment of more than<br />

250,000 euros, the food giant<br />

installed seven machines<br />

with more than 40,000 food<br />

packs running through each<br />

active machine every day (one<br />

machine is kept on standby).<br />

The Cerberus is a highly<br />

accurate machine employed<br />

to check for potential metal<br />

contaminants, inspect the<br />

label and, essentially, to<br />

improve yield and reduce<br />

giveaway while verifying<br />

The combined Cerberus system operates in high-risk food environments<br />

the weight of each pack of<br />

food. Used every day, their<br />

uptime is nearly 100%, says<br />

managing director of Sparc<br />

David Buckley. “This is one<br />

of their great strengths,”<br />

he says, “along with speed<br />

of product changeover and<br />

ease of cleaning.”<br />

The food company has<br />

also been delighted with the<br />

equipment stating that the<br />

Cerberus is the best machine<br />

it has ever bought, and also<br />

offering the best return on<br />

investment it has seen.<br />

The Cerberus has a single,<br />

clear touch screen control<br />

panel that provides constant<br />

feedback on operational<br />

elements such as volume,<br />

weights and speed.<br />

Million pound investments meet<br />

pharma needs of contract packer<br />

Pharmaceutical contract<br />

manufacturer and<br />

packer Wasdell Group<br />

is investing millions in new<br />

equipment and processes to<br />

help meet its stated ambitions<br />

of becoming the number one<br />

contract packaging company<br />

in Europe. The company has<br />

also announced expansion<br />

plans in Swindon as well as a<br />

new greenfield site in Ireland.<br />

At the end of last year, the<br />

company invested £1.1 million<br />

in a new Romaco Noack<br />

blister machine for its Burnley<br />

facility which was supplied<br />

by Pharma Machinery while<br />

this January, the company<br />

announced a £1 million<br />

investment in serialisation<br />

(track and trace) technology.<br />

The latest Noack machine<br />

joins the Romaco-only fleet<br />

of equipment housed across<br />

the Wasdell facilities and<br />

has increased the company’s<br />

annual capacity by 500<br />

million blisters. This new<br />

950 unit expands the fleet<br />

of Noack machines to pack<br />

pharmaceutical, health and<br />

nutritional products into<br />

blisters. An advantage of<br />

the new technology is that<br />

existing tooling can work<br />

across both machines with<br />

Wasdell director of sales Andy Causer<br />

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

only slight modifications to<br />

the cutters required.<br />

Director of sales Andy<br />

Causer, a qualified engineer,<br />

is very familiar with the<br />

Noack equipment and believes<br />

these quick changeover<br />

machines are perfect to meet<br />

the short production runs that<br />

the contract packer has to<br />

cope with all the time.<br />

Focusing on just one supplier<br />

of such key equipment also<br />

brings other benefits.<br />

“Our engineers are used to<br />

working on them and have<br />

built up a bank of knowledge,”<br />

he tells Machinery Update.<br />

“Our spare parts are also<br />

rationalised, and our inhouse<br />

engineering facilities make<br />

blister tooling available within<br />

4-6 weeks,” he says.<br />

“Speed to market is key for<br />

us which is why we invested<br />

in our tool making facilities,”<br />

he continues. “This is an<br />

important element of our<br />

business that we have complete<br />

control over,” he says.<br />

At the start of the project,<br />

Wasdell’s Phil Vines visited<br />

Romaco in Germany with<br />

Dave Renninson of the UK<br />

agent Pharma Machinery to<br />

discuss all the specifications.<br />

Meanwhile, the company<br />

believes it is staying one step<br />

ahead in the fight to stop<br />

counterfeit drugs thanks<br />

to its recent investment in<br />

serialisation. The technology<br />

meets FMD requirements<br />

and enables each pack<br />

produced at Wasdell to be<br />

serialised, tamper-proofed<br />

and aggregated at case and<br />

pallet levels.<br />

Although the deadline for<br />

FMD compliance is February<br />

next year, Causer says the fact<br />

that Wasdell is ahead of the<br />

game in this area is already<br />

bringing in more new business<br />

The company<br />

has built a bank<br />

of knowledge<br />

to the group, even from big<br />

pharma companies that have<br />

not yet started down the road<br />

to compliance.<br />

The company identified the<br />

need for new machinery and<br />

software and the project was<br />

overseen by group validation<br />

manager Ayo Sotannde. Four<br />

new machines will be added<br />

to production lines, with the<br />

first one now in operation.<br />

The company worked<br />

closely with the software<br />

designers and the machine<br />

manufacturers to specify<br />

exactly what was needed<br />

according to clients’ needs<br />

across the world.<br />

“We’ve taken a very<br />

proactive approach here and<br />

have been preparing for the<br />

arrival of this legislation for<br />

almost a year,” says Sotannde.<br />

“This first machine will<br />

enable us to help protect our<br />

clients’ goods and the general<br />

public against counterfeit<br />

pharmaceuticals.”<br />

Six-axis robots are deboning<br />

legs of pork at flexible speed<br />

Six-axis robots that are<br />

now being used for<br />

processing meat have<br />

delivered greater productivity<br />

and efficiency in Japan.<br />

The job of removing bones<br />

from pork legs is being<br />

achieved by a pioneering<br />

Hamdas-R robot system that<br />

uses two Stäubli six-axis<br />

RX160 HE machines operating<br />

as master butchers. The<br />

machine has to meet strict<br />

hygiene requirements for<br />

handling fresh meat and it also<br />

has to perform at speed – no<br />

fewer than 500 pork legs enter<br />

and leave the line per hour.<br />

Robot functionality is also<br />

tested at these speeds because<br />

no one piece of pork is the<br />

same as another, so flexibility<br />

is also a key requirement.<br />

The HE version of the Stäubli<br />

RX160 is used as it is specially<br />

designed to withstand the<br />

intensive cleaning processes<br />

in the food industry. The fully<br />

enclosed robots equipped with<br />

special gaskets conform to<br />

IP65 standards of protection<br />

while the use of a Stäubli<br />

overpressure unit increases<br />

Simmatic <strong>MU</strong> J-F <strong>2018</strong>.qxp_<strong>MU</strong> 09/01/<strong>2018</strong> 17:03 Page 1<br />

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

the degree of protection even<br />

further; the wrist meets the<br />

requirements of IP67, meaning<br />

that it is completely watertight,<br />

for example.<br />

Vertical internal cabling<br />

has also meant that as all the<br />

connectors are located under<br />

the robot pedestal, they are<br />

safe from water ingress.<br />

The Japanese equipment<br />

manufacturer has devised a<br />

way of using the robots with<br />

the correct precision for the<br />

task. In operation, an x-ray<br />

system detects the position<br />

of the bones in the meat and<br />

calculates the exact incision<br />

line for the robots. Robots have<br />

to compensate for the fact that<br />

the meat is hanging from an<br />

overhead hook, and so is liable<br />

to move around. Each wristmounted<br />

knife has to cut with<br />

precision and, at the same<br />

time, with sensitivity to avoid<br />

any collisions with bones.<br />

Food-safe oils are used<br />

in combination with the<br />

robots, without any loss<br />

of efficiencies.<br />

Multi-pack line for<br />

popcorn saves film<br />

An automatic multi-packing line<br />

for 20g popcorn bags that uses<br />

flow wrapping to reduce film<br />

consumption and a vertical racetrack<br />

collator to counter product fragility,<br />

lightness and irregular shapes, has been<br />

developed by Italian manufacturer PFM.<br />

Based on a PFM Compact horizontal<br />

multipacker, the line has been delivered<br />

to a major snack food manufacturer in<br />

the Far East, replacing a manual bagging<br />

operation, and handles 30 primary<br />

packs a minute, ten in each multipack.<br />

Film savings are in excess of 30%.<br />

Primary packs are fed flat to the<br />

racetrack collator, which<br />

accumulates five and indexes<br />

through 90 degrees to<br />

present the row on<br />

edge to a pusher.<br />

This guides the<br />

bags through the<br />

wrapper’s forming<br />

box and a repeat cycle completes the<br />

2 x 5 collation, which is then sealed<br />

in film.<br />

“Instead of stacking the bags, using<br />

a race track collator not only provides<br />

much gentler handling, but by wrapping<br />

the bags on edge also gives the multipack<br />

a narrower facing for better use of shelf<br />

space,” points out PFM product specialist<br />

Alan Atkinson.<br />

The multipacks are wrapped with<br />

a block bottom seal, allowing stand-up<br />

on-shelf presentation, while savings<br />

in packaging materials come from<br />

the intrinsic tightness of this form of<br />

multipack and also optimisation<br />

of pack dimensions.<br />

The Chinese company<br />

develops and manufactures<br />

biopharmaceutical drugs and<br />

equipped with a rotary valve<br />

piston pump to fill liquid<br />

pharmaceuticals into vials.<br />

However, when customers<br />

wanted highly sensitive<br />

biological products to be<br />

handled, the company needed<br />

an additional filling solution.<br />

Bosch recommended an<br />

innovative upgrade with a<br />

movable filling solution based<br />

on the trolley FDM 1040, which<br />

can be connected to the FLC<br />

Bosch has installed a new filling system to handle more sensitive products<br />

filling machine with a beta port<br />

Thanks to the new design,<br />

WuXi Biologics is able to<br />

switch between the existing<br />

Multihead weighers offer<br />

accurate speed in Sweden<br />

Family-run business<br />

Öresundschark relies<br />

exclusively on multihead<br />

weighers from Multipond<br />

to ensure its meat balls<br />

are dispensed with precise<br />

pack weights.<br />

“We started out with a<br />

second hand machine from<br />

Multipond which exceeded our<br />

expectations, so we bought<br />

a second machine which<br />

ran smoothly from the very<br />

first day,” explains technical<br />

manager at the meat processor<br />

Mikael Andersson. “We<br />

therefore decided on Multipond<br />

for the rest of our machines.”<br />

An MP-14-2400-1250-H-UL<br />

multihead weigher has just<br />

been installed. This 14-head<br />

scale is used for weighing<br />

a broad range of meat balls<br />

which can be weighed and<br />

packed either deep-frozen<br />

or fresh.<br />

The meat balls are conveyed<br />

to the weigher by a bucket<br />

conveyor. Once at the top of the<br />

weighing system, the product<br />

is first conveyed to the prefeed<br />

hoppers via the radially<br />

positioned feed trays, and then<br />

Increasing maintenance<br />

costs and strict health and<br />

safety regulations faced by<br />

companies in the recycling<br />

and waste management<br />

industry has resulted<br />

in a greater demand for<br />

transportable separation<br />

equipment to offer on-site<br />

flexibility and risk hazard<br />

reduction.<br />

In response, Eriez Europe<br />

has worked with equipment<br />

manufacturer Ecohog to<br />

provide an adaptable and<br />

robust solution. The so-called<br />

The low total cost of ownership and its accuracy has delivered a fast ROI<br />

to the weigh hoppers below.<br />

The computer now determines<br />

from partial portions, the<br />

combination that corresponds<br />

or comes closest to the target<br />

weight. All product contact<br />

parts are precisely adapted<br />

to the production requirements<br />

and to the properties of the<br />

meat balls. This guarantees<br />

a smooth product flow, says<br />

Multipond.<br />

In operation, the weigher<br />

is controlled and operated<br />

using a convenient colour<br />

touchscreen monitor.<br />

Plasma surface treaters had an<br />

excellent reception at the show<br />

Ergomodul, Machinery Update, 149x225 mm, CC-en21-AZ059 10/17<br />

Enercon introduced its new<br />

plasma surface treaters<br />

at the exhibition which<br />

deliver effective treatments of<br />

low surface energy materials.<br />

This in turn, delivers better<br />

bonding of adhesives and<br />

application of coatings and inks.<br />

In operation, the blown<br />

ion and blown arc plasma<br />

technology bombards the<br />

surface of materials such as<br />

metals, plastics and glass with<br />

a high speed discharge of ions<br />

to clean, etch and functionalise<br />

them. This treatment removes<br />

contaminants and increases<br />

the surface energy to ensure<br />

adhesive joints, printing inks<br />

or applied coatings achieve<br />

optimum performance.<br />

Electronics is an active sector<br />

Enercon says that both<br />

options are ideal for use on<br />

almost all surfaces. The wider<br />

head of the blown arc gives a<br />

broader coverage area while<br />

the fine nozzle of the blown ion<br />

treater makes it ideal for use<br />

with difficult to reach recesses.<br />

An option to run multiple<br />

heads from multiple processes<br />

from one machine is also<br />

offered by the technology.<br />

These treaters can be<br />

integrated with robotics for<br />

applications requiring precise<br />

treatment paths or mounted<br />

over a conveyor or indexing<br />

system. The company works<br />

with a network of specialist<br />

integrators to deliver such<br />

systems for various sectors.<br />

These include automotive,<br />

electronics, packaging<br />

including folding cartons,<br />

polymers and medical.<br />

Feature: Ready meals<br />

The ready meals<br />

sector continues<br />

to up its quality<br />

Ready meals<br />

manufacturers have<br />

been upping their games<br />

in the ‘exotic’ stakes<br />

by developing spicier<br />

and less conventional offerings in<br />

the last twelve months. Sales of<br />

Indian, Chinese, Thai and other<br />

Asian ready meals are booming,<br />

according to The Grocer, as are<br />

own label dishes that are way<br />

outstripping growth in branded<br />

convenience food offerings.<br />

You can find out more about the<br />

success that Indian ready meals<br />

manufacturer Mumtaz is enjoying<br />

right now as it continues to develop<br />

its own dishes but also supply more<br />

and more own-label offerings to<br />

multiples and discounters. It has<br />

invested in tray sealing equipment<br />

at its new Bradford factory<br />

(see pages 50-51).<br />

Underpinning all of this NPD<br />

is the premiumisation that is<br />

being seen across the board, no<br />

matter the dish in question. And<br />

this is also the case in traditional<br />

ready meals that still account for<br />

nearly 40% of the category and<br />

have themselves, demonstrated<br />

the same trend for more unusual,<br />

exotic and premium ingredients.<br />

As well as the demand for<br />

convenience, positive health<br />

benefits are also becoming more<br />

important to shoppers.<br />

Indeed, higher quality ready meals<br />

have been cited as one of the factors<br />

putting pressure on many high<br />

street, mainly Italian, restaurant<br />

chains in the news just now.<br />

NEW ‘RESTAURANT QUALITY’<br />

To meet these needs of ‘restaurant<br />

quality’ foods, packaging<br />

machinery manufacturers have<br />

to cope with new formats and<br />

materials being introduced to help<br />

convey point of difference and<br />

establish effective on-shelf impact.<br />

This, in turn, says John Tierney<br />

of Linx Printing Technologies,<br />

increases the demands put on<br />

coding equipment, with printers<br />

Variety is<br />

spice of life<br />

More Eastern<br />

cuisine and<br />

higher<br />

quality all round<br />

is putting the<br />

ready meals<br />

sector<br />

in steady growth<br />

required to code onto more varied<br />

packs and substrates – from<br />

plastics trays and bags to card<br />

sleeves and cartons, and often at<br />

different angles.<br />

Steve Ryan of Rotech Machines<br />

believes a number of different<br />

stakeholders are increasing<br />

pressure on ready meals producers<br />

with regard to the quality of<br />

labelling and coding.<br />

“With retailers demanding clearer,<br />

more detailed ingredient<br />

information, overprinting important<br />

batch numbers, barcodes and<br />

expiry date information becomes<br />

more complex and has led to a<br />

definite push towards offline<br />

systems that cater to different<br />

packaging types and product ranges<br />

and portion pack sizes,” he says.<br />

Effective tray sealing is a key<br />

ingredient to ready meals and<br />

this is covered in this feature, as<br />

as is inspection equipment which<br />

plays a vital role in this sector as<br />

it typically has more processes<br />

than other food items, so there are<br />

more risks. Tony Burgess of Proseal<br />

says machinery suppliers need<br />

to be able to respond quickly to<br />

both current and future packaging<br />

trends in this market. “For tray<br />

sealers, this requires an element of<br />

future-proofing in the development<br />

of new tray equipment,” he says.<br />

“This gives food manufacturers<br />

the reassurance of knowing that<br />

they will have the capability to<br />

handle the latest packaging trend<br />

without the need to invest in new<br />

kit every time.”

Feature: Ready meals<br />

Passion for good<br />

food is a family<br />

affair in Bradford<br />

Mumtaz has come a long way since its humble beginnings but its<br />

emphasis remains on good, wholesome homemade food at its new<br />

ready meals factory that houses robust and also reliable equipment<br />

T<br />

he Mumtaz mission is simple.<br />

The company wants to delight<br />

its customers with the rare taste<br />

of authentic Indian cuisine<br />

and to excite them with rich,<br />

aromatic sauces and authentic flavours.<br />

With family values at heart, the<br />

company uses its grandmother’s original<br />

recipes to make honest Indian food and<br />

creates its hand cooked ready meals using<br />

the finest quality fresh ingredients, using<br />

no additives or preservatives. It does this<br />

at the factory it moved into in 2015.<br />

This 60,000sq ft site was built from<br />

scratch to accommodate the growing<br />

ready meals business and it currently<br />

houses a line comprising equipment from<br />

Mondini and a rice filler from Multi-Fill.<br />

Importantly for the company’s growth<br />

targets, the BRC-accredited factory also<br />

has all the services in place to handle<br />

other lines in the future. As operations<br />

director of the business Bilal Akbar says:<br />

“We are so passionate about our food,<br />

our goal is to become a household brand<br />

that is synonymous with restaurant<br />

quality food, at home.”<br />

And this goal is certainly in sight as<br />

it now supplies meals to several multinational<br />

retailers and discounters and<br />

has recently won a contract to supply<br />

on-line grocer Ocado. Initially, the<br />

company produced its own, Great Taste<br />

Award-winning meals, but today it also<br />

manufactures a significant number of<br />

own-brand SKUs. Indeed, about 50%<br />

of its business is now in own-label which<br />

has effectively, doubled its volumes.<br />

The Mumtaz business started in 1979<br />

when Grandma set up a 4 metre square<br />

shop on Great Horton Road in Bradford<br />

selling samosas and the like. Following<br />

years of expansion, this site now thrives as<br />

a nearly 500 cover, landmark restaurant in<br />

Bradford. The family has since opened<br />

a further restaurant in Leeds but in the<br />

mid-90s, found itself at a crossroads.<br />

Should the business open more<br />

restaurants or expand into the ready<br />

meals business?<br />

Dr Gul-Nawaz Akbar, Bilal’s father,<br />

a neuro surgeon by profession, decided<br />

to take the manufacturing route and<br />

started making meals in a unit at the<br />

back of the Bradford restaurant in 1995.<br />

At the end of the decade it acquired<br />

a second-hand Mondini machine to seal<br />

its ready meals trays.<br />

It was this purchase that convinced<br />

the company to buy the line for its new<br />

factory from the Italian company. Mainly<br />

because, this old machine, which was one<br />

The new line features all Mondini equipment<br />

that is complemented by a Multi-Fill rice filler<br />

Initially, the company made its own meals<br />

but today, it also manufactures a whole range<br />

of own-label dishes for various major multiples

Feature: Name here<br />

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

of the first automatic machines Mondini<br />

manufactured, is still going strong today!<br />

At the new site, this original model is<br />

still used for smaller runs, or sometimes<br />

development quantities, and continues<br />

to run without a problem.<br />

The tender from Mumtaz to Mondini<br />

specified a fully automatic line which would<br />

work constantly at a speed of 60 packs a<br />

minute, much faster than the second-hand<br />

unit. Products to be handled comprised a<br />

range of chilled Indian ready meals into<br />

single and twin compartment trays.<br />

According to Brian Hemsley, sales<br />

director of Mondini UK, the length of<br />

the line was determined so that Mumtaz<br />

could automate the filling of products<br />

in the future. “These future depositing<br />

machines would also work with a<br />

travelling head system as, to achieve<br />

60 packs a minute, each product has to be<br />

deposited under control to avoid spillage,”<br />

he says. Avoiding spillage also stops any<br />

contamination of the tray sealing flange<br />

which is likely to lead to sealing issues.<br />

Mumtaz wanted an efficient line with<br />

a sealing machine that would deliver<br />

complete control of the filled trays into the<br />

sealer, positioning them on the grouping<br />

belt gently to avoid any errors. Pusher<br />

arms guarantee a smooth transfer into<br />

the sealing tool area, where this precise<br />

movement allows the sealing tool to heat<br />

seal the trays efficiently.<br />

INTEGRATED PRODUCTION LINE<br />

Tray denesting and handling, controlled<br />

depositing (filling the cold, viscous<br />

sauces) and feeding to the integrated<br />

Trave tray sealer were key to the success<br />

of this project, says Hemsley. After tray<br />

sealing, the trays go through metal<br />

detectors to the separate packing area.<br />

In operation, the tray denester has<br />

to have six minutes accumulation time<br />

to allow the operator to complete other<br />

activities. Meanwhile, precise control of<br />

the sealing tool technology also allows<br />

for quick changeovers which is crucial to<br />

a food business handling many different<br />

ready meal variants, about 40-50 SKUs.<br />

Changeovers are critical to the<br />

The family continues to run a landmark restaurant in Bradford along with a second, in Leeds<br />

business along with easy clean down<br />

between different meals.<br />

Bilal says the company was comfortable<br />

in committing to the Mondini equipment<br />

because of its track record in providing<br />

efficiency, robustness and flexibility to<br />

the business. He also talks about the<br />

responsiveness of the UK business in terms<br />

of service and spare parts. “The back-up<br />

has been very good,” he says.<br />

“We did consider other equipment<br />

but we were not as impressed with their<br />

build quality,” he tells Machinery Update.<br />

“We run a chilled food operation and so<br />

can’t afford breakdowns.” The company<br />

handles orders on day one, for day two,<br />

so everything needs to be efficient.<br />

Bilal says the family took a long term<br />

view in its decision to purchase Mondini<br />

equipment for the site. It installed the latest<br />

Trave model, the 367, to meet its needs.<br />

“It gave us peace of mind,” says Bilal.<br />

And the company is not finished<br />

investing in the plant as it is currently<br />

investigating multihead technology to<br />

handle the proteins. And, of course, it is<br />

already set up to install additional lines<br />

when the business volumes justify it.<br />

As the company approaches almost<br />

40 years in the industry, it is still as<br />

committed to making the finest range of<br />

authentic Indian food as Grandma was<br />

to creating the most delightful curries<br />

for the people of Bradford back when it<br />

all began. “This desire and commitment<br />

keeps us striving for perfection and in the<br />

creation of our range of premium chilled<br />

ready meals, we have found the perfect<br />

outlet for our passion for food,” says Bilal.<br />

Greencore invests<br />

in more inspection<br />

kit for pasta lines<br />

Greencore knows about<br />

ready meals and it knows<br />

about keeping them safe.<br />

The group produces<br />

180 million chilled<br />

prepared meals and meal kits<br />

globally each year and at its<br />

Warrington site, it produces ready<br />

meals for its multiple retailer<br />

customers which makes food<br />

safety a top priority.<br />

The site continues to expand to<br />

meet increased volume demand<br />

which is why it is ordering more<br />

high speed metal detection systems<br />

from Metal Detection Services<br />

(MDS). These twin headed systems<br />

will be running on the high speed,<br />

ready meal pasta lines at up to<br />

120 packs a minute and joins other,<br />

previously installed machinery.<br />

Following successful trials<br />

against competitor equipment<br />

a few years’ ago, MDS first won<br />

the contract to install inspection<br />

equipment at this Greencore site.<br />

That project saw seven, twin<br />

headed systems comprising<br />

14 conveyor-mounted detector<br />

heads. These heads are both<br />

ferrous in foil and MS21 multi<br />

spectrum technology and are all<br />

designed and built to the latest<br />

retailer codes of practice.<br />

IMPROVED SENSITIVITY<br />

“The MS21 multi spectrum<br />

metal detector can use multiple<br />

frequencies simultaneously, giving<br />

it an advantage over conventional<br />

multi frequency detectors which<br />

only use one of their available<br />

frequencies at any one time,” says<br />

David Hale of MDS. “This means<br />

the MS21 can deliver an improved<br />

sensitivity giving it a much greater<br />

ability to find small irregularly<br />

shaped contamination,” he says.<br />

Before commissioning, factory<br />

acceptance tests were carried out<br />

at CEIA’s facility in Italy, where the<br />

units were built, before they were<br />

shipped to the Greencore site in the<br />

UK. At the time, four project staff<br />

from Greencore, headed by project<br />

managers Neil Greenfield and<br />

Protecting<br />

reputation<br />

Greencore<br />

produces<br />

180 million chilled<br />

prepared ready<br />

meals and also<br />

meal kits globally<br />

each year<br />

Jon Bremner travelled to the Italian<br />

site to work with David Hale and<br />

Pete Higgins of MDS.<br />

The systems installed then<br />

increased detection rates at the<br />

site, which is why the company<br />

has come back for more. Indeed,<br />

Greencore has identified that<br />

the level of detection of ferrous<br />

materials and other contaminants<br />

has increased dramatically since<br />

using the CEIA technology when<br />

compared to previous equipment.<br />

“Greencore has been able to reduce<br />

its test stick size by more than<br />

half with this new technology,”<br />

The test stick size has now<br />

been reduced by more than half<br />

explains Hale.<br />

“We are delighted with the<br />

functionality and performance<br />

of the CEIA metal detectors,”<br />

said Jon Bremner, continuous<br />

improvements co-ordinator<br />

at Greencore.<br />

“The introduction of these<br />

cutting-edge detectors ensures<br />

that Greencore Warrington is<br />

using the latest technology<br />

available to exceed our customers’<br />

requirements for the detection<br />

of metal contamination,”<br />

he continues. “Both our technical<br />

team and our operators are<br />

impressed by how simple and<br />

user friendly the detectors are<br />

to set up and operate, despite<br />

their incredible performance.”<br />

This non-contact printing method<br />

means it can easily print onto<br />

all the different pack types and<br />

light weight enable the printer to<br />

be moved and positioned wherever<br />

Feature: Ready meals<br />

FJahn has been<br />

established for<br />

over 100 years and<br />

supplies industrial<br />

packaging and<br />

processing equipment from<br />

its European and American<br />

principals to the UK and<br />

Irish markets with many<br />

installations in the ready<br />

meals area.<br />

Managing director Gerry<br />

Lupton has seen the growth<br />

in the diversity and variety<br />

of products now available in<br />

the ready meals format.<br />

“This means that the<br />

equipment used in the<br />

manufacture of these products<br />

needs to be very flexible in<br />

terms of the range of meal<br />

components that can be<br />

handled,” he says. “Also,<br />

the equipment has to be able<br />

to cope with short runs and<br />

the rapid changeover times<br />

demanded by our customers.”<br />

Lupton also talks about<br />

the impact retailer demands<br />

are having on the equipment<br />

choices of UK ready meals<br />

manufacturers. “Retailers are<br />

demanding the same or often<br />

lower prices for the products<br />

they buy from my customers,<br />

but without compromising<br />

The equipment<br />

from Lyco, Multi-Fill<br />

and LAN that F Jahn<br />

sells in the UK and Ireland<br />

is robustly built and designed<br />

for reliability, as well as rapid<br />

changeover.<br />

Multi-Fill offers a range<br />

of depositors, named MPF,<br />

for products which have<br />

previously proved very<br />

difficult to fill by machine,<br />

such as cooked pasta and rice<br />

(see page 50 for one of its rice<br />

depositors installed at Mumtaz<br />

in Bradford). The focus of the<br />

latest model has been hygienic<br />

design and ease of cleaning.<br />

The MPF features a volumetric<br />

filling head, pneumatically<br />

operated and controlled by<br />

a PLC. All components in the<br />

filling head are either quickrelease<br />

or can be dismantled<br />

without the use of tools,<br />

for cleaning. The filling head<br />

has been recently re-designed<br />

to reduce the number of<br />

parts, so making cleaning<br />

quicker and easier.<br />

PRECISE DEPOSITING<br />

In operation, the system<br />

utilises a vacuum pump to pull<br />

ingredients into the volumetric<br />

pocket prior to dispensing.<br />

This enables precise portions<br />

of product to be deposited,<br />

whether the container is<br />

a tray, carton or pouch.<br />

This latest MPF depositor

includes upgraded adjustment<br />

for the filling head, making<br />

the machines much easier to<br />

adjust for line height variation.<br />

Another new feature is a dualdrive<br />

belt system that allows<br />

positive traction of the product<br />

conveyor belt. The conveyor<br />

belt itself is in food-grade blue<br />

plastic and all other plastic<br />

parts can be supplied in blue<br />

material if required.<br />

CONSTANT MOVEMENT<br />

Its Clean-Flow cooker features<br />

constant movement of the<br />

product by water agitation,<br />

ensuring uniform, consistent<br />

cooking and the elimination of<br />

clumping losses, particularly<br />

with pasta. The fully enclosed<br />

rotary auger system delivers<br />

a reduction in water usage,<br />

minimal escape of steam into<br />

Feature: Ready meals<br />

Pack developments<br />

are challenging<br />

machine flexibility<br />

The growth in popularity<br />

of skin packs and other<br />

new formats for ready<br />

meals and ready-to-cook<br />

foods, such as MAP gas<br />

flushing and vacuum MAP sealing,<br />

is creating additional challenges<br />

for equipment suppliers, says Tony<br />

Burgess of Proseal.<br />

Such developments have<br />

led to many manufacturers<br />

experimenting with pack formats,<br />

particularly for new products.<br />

At the same time it is imperative<br />

that, while exploring these options,<br />

they are still able to maintain<br />

current production needs.<br />

In addition, the proliferation<br />

of new products means many<br />

manufacturers now have to be<br />

able to handle a variety of different<br />

packs on their lines.<br />

Machinery suppliers therefore<br />

need to be able to respond quickly<br />

to both current and future packing<br />

trends. For tray sealers, this<br />

requires an element of futureproofing<br />

in the development<br />

of new tray equipment, so that<br />

food manufacturers have the<br />

reassurance of knowing that they<br />

will have the capability to handle<br />

the latest packing trend without<br />

the need to invest in new kit<br />

every time.<br />

EASY PRODUCT SWITCHES<br />

Proseal’s latest models, for<br />

example, can handle all of<br />

the above-mentioned sealing<br />

formats, and these options can<br />

be added at any time, and even<br />

removed if required. “This gives<br />

manufacturers the flexibility easily<br />

to switch between packs during<br />

normal production, or to run trial<br />

packs,” says Burgess.<br />

In addition, as we develop<br />

new features in line with market<br />

requirements, we ensure that<br />

these can also be retrofitted to<br />

models already in operation on<br />

the production floor, he says.<br />

In terms of line speeds, the<br />

introduction of new technologies<br />

Meeting all<br />

seal needs<br />

Tray sealers have<br />

to cope with<br />

myriad pack<br />

formats in the<br />

ready meals<br />

sector and so<br />

must be flexible<br />

such as following motion and<br />

intelligent buffering, which enable<br />

trays to feed continuously into<br />

a tray sealer without having to<br />

pre-sort and adjust pack spacing,<br />

have helped to increase speeds.<br />

They also improve product<br />

handling since there are fewer line<br />

stoppages due to misplaced trays.<br />

Meanwhile, the availability of<br />

online monitoring of equipment and<br />

the ability to collect data on small<br />

but unscheduled line stoppages<br />

can help production managers<br />

and engineers identify recurring<br />

problems and implement corrective<br />

action to maximise line uptime<br />

FULLY INTEGRATED LINES<br />

Both of these developments also<br />

underline the importance of<br />

developing fully integrated packing<br />

lines, where individual pieces<br />

of equipment are linked together<br />

to help maximise efficiencies.<br />

As part of this, modular conveyor<br />

designs allow individual sections<br />

of the infeed and outfeed<br />

conveyors to be removed for<br />

maintenance and cleaning,<br />

helping to maximise hygiene and<br />

avoid unnecessary or unplanned<br />

downtime throughout the line.<br />

Similarly the availability of<br />

cartridge tool systems enables<br />

any tool to be quickly and easily<br />

removed from a tray sealer and<br />

replaced in the event of a problem.<br />

All the elements that might need<br />

attention are contained within<br />

the cartridge, meaning repairs<br />

and adjustments can be carried<br />

out offline while the tray sealer<br />

continues to operate, thus ensuring<br />

that downtime is minimised and<br />

overall throughput maintained.<br />

Having one metal<br />

detector on<br />

a ready meal<br />

processing and<br />

packing line<br />

is clearly better than none,”<br />

says Phil Brown, managing<br />

director of Fortress Technology.<br />

“Although it may demonstrate<br />

best practice and adhere to<br />

many quality assurance and<br />

regulatory guidelines, lack<br />

of understanding about what<br />

your prevalent metal risks<br />

might be and where they<br />

could be introduced means<br />

that your factory could still<br />

be missing a trick.”<br />

Here, Brown discusses<br />

the risks involved in cutting<br />

corners and why it pays<br />

to be hypervigilant and<br />

strategic when selecting food<br />

inspection checkpoints.<br />

RECENT COST CUTTING<br />

Almost all (98%) of UK<br />

manufacturers surveyed by<br />

the insurance broker Lockton<br />

in its Food & Beverage Report<br />

agreed that continued price<br />

pressures would have an<br />

effect on the end product on<br />

the retail shelves, with 42%<br />

believing that cost cutting is<br />

to blame for the increase in<br />

the number of recalls. Brown<br />

agrees that short-term thrift<br />

with product inspection<br />

equipment may have an<br />

incendiary effect on food<br />

safety, putting a business and<br />

brand reputation in jeopardy.<br />

The study also points to<br />

a significant increase in food<br />

recalls by the FSA, with the<br />

number doubling in the<br />

last five years and a sharp<br />

Metal threat<br />

is real issue<br />

Fortress helps to find a remedy for the risks that<br />

food metal threats pose to ready meals production<br />

rise in those with physical<br />

contaminants, including metal.<br />

Lockton’s Food and Beverage<br />

Product Recall Risk Tracker<br />

found that food contamination<br />

linked to choking hazards<br />

were the cause of 22% of food<br />

and drink recalls over the<br />

past six years.<br />

Given that investment<br />

in inspection systems by<br />

food factories is predicted<br />

to continue, Brown advises<br />

that risk professionals should<br />

constantly revisit inspection<br />

protocols and hypothetical<br />

contamination scenarios<br />

to flush out the threats.<br />

Lockton’s research highlights<br />

that one in ten food and<br />

beverage manufacturers are<br />

using cheaper raw materials<br />

and ingredients, with 40%<br />

agreeing that ingredient<br />

transparency and traceability<br />

are becoming harder to<br />

determine.<br />

Sourcing from sub-contractors<br />

and changing suppliers<br />

provides the ideal opportunity<br />

to reconsider and review food<br />

safety inspection standards,<br />

says Brown.<br />

Convenience meals typically<br />

have more production<br />

processes than any other food<br />

item and consequently there<br />

can be more opportunities<br />

Convenience meals typically<br />

for metal to be introduced.<br />

Instant meals, such as a curry<br />

or roast dinners may have<br />

even more ingredients, with<br />

pulses or other carbohydrates<br />

added to the dish.<br />

When assessing risk,<br />

examining all of the<br />

processing steps is critical<br />

as metal could be introduced<br />

in any number of the processes<br />

where cutting blades or<br />

grinders are being used.<br />

Putting it into context, in an<br />

average ready meal there can<br />

be more than eight production<br />

steps between sourcing<br />

ingredients to packing, and<br />

more than five different<br />

product components each<br />

requiring, cleaning, peeling<br />

and inspection, slicing,<br />

cooking, quality inspection,<br />

flavouring and finally<br />

weighing and packing.<br />

RISK CAN BE AMPLIFIED<br />

If manufacturers are choosing<br />

cheaper raw ingredients, the<br />

risk to reputation could be<br />

amplified.<br />

“Although most external<br />

companies supplying<br />

ingredients are extremely<br />

diligent, the more extensive<br />

a supply chain and the further<br />

inspection equipment is<br />

pushed up the line-up, the<br />

greater the risks,” says Brown.<br />

Likening a metal<br />

contaminant to a virus, Brown<br />

emphasises that catching it in<br />

its largest form, for example<br />

in a single potato, is the<br />

ideal. “Doing this means you<br />

eliminate it at the cheapest<br />

part of the process, but also<br />

you catch it before the metal<br />

is chopped up and dispersed<br />

into multiple products,”<br />

he explains.<br />

Pushing the inspection solely<br />

to the end of the line means<br />

any contamination will be<br />

caught at the most expensive<br />

part of the production<br />

process where an entire<br />

batch of product, for example<br />

500 ready meals, could<br />

potentially be contaminated<br />

with unidentifiable metal<br />

fragments.<br />

Also, zero recalls in the<br />

past doesn’t mean you are<br />

immune to future threats.<br />

“Quality assurance often runs<br />

deeper than the obvious,”<br />

says Brown. Rather than<br />

considering the ‘if’ it can be<br />

prudent to think instead about<br />

the ‘when’. To mitigate future<br />

contaminant risks means you<br />

are not looking for patterns<br />

but future potential holes<br />

in the security chain.<br />

From a practical<br />

perspective, food processing<br />

inspection risks should be<br />

reviewed every 12 months<br />

as part of a defined HACCP<br />

assessment. However you may<br />

want to do it more frequently<br />

if a process is changing,<br />

for example if switching<br />

packaging from a plastic wrap<br />

to a cardboard outer,” he says.<br />

Feature: Ready meals<br />

Speed and<br />

flexibility is<br />

essential for<br />

ready meals<br />

production<br />

and tray sealers must meet<br />

new pack challenges,” says<br />

Lee Vine, tray sealer design<br />

manager at Ishida Europe.<br />

Tray formats in the ready<br />

meals sector are constantly<br />

evolving, with companies<br />

competing to gain shelf space<br />

in the big supermarkets.<br />

Examples include different<br />

shapes, sizes and materials<br />

along with multi-compartment<br />

packs. This, says Vine, has<br />

placed demands on equipment<br />

suppliers to deliver high<br />

throughput and efficiencies<br />

while handling these very<br />

varied formats.<br />

One major factor driving<br />

new pack development is the<br />

huge increase in the number<br />

of single person households<br />

in many parts of the world<br />

and to meet this demographic<br />

development, producers are<br />

introducing single-serve<br />

formats. What was once a<br />

pack suitable for two people is<br />

now evolving into a pack with<br />

two separate compartments,<br />

each containing a single portion.<br />

This allows one half of the<br />

contents to be consumed,<br />

while the other remains in<br />

its protective packaging<br />

atmosphere until required at<br />

a later date. For the consumer,<br />

this provides convenience,<br />

while the extended product<br />

life and portion control help<br />

to drive down food waste.<br />

TEAR OFF FEATURES<br />

For the manufacturer, these<br />

single-serve packs bring new<br />

challenges, however. The pack<br />

has to be capable of being<br />

separated by the consumer,<br />

so typically a tear-off feature<br />

is included between the<br />

compartments. This tear-off<br />

feature reduces the rigidity of<br />

the package and this in turn<br />

increases the demands on<br />

high speed automatic pack<br />

handling systems.<br />

The two compartments<br />

require separate sealing film<br />

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

Coping with<br />

new formats<br />

Machinery Update talks to Lee Vine, tray sealer design<br />

manager at Ishida Europe about handling new formats<br />

to be applied to each,<br />

effectively doubling the<br />

number of packs being<br />

produced by the equipment.<br />

Meanwhile, the competitive<br />

nature of the convenience<br />

foods and ready meals sector<br />

is also driving new product<br />

development. At the same<br />

time, many lines are packing<br />

for special promotions and<br />

this requires the ability to vary<br />

certain lines by as much as<br />

60% week on week. As a result,<br />

flexibility is vital, with tray<br />

sealers that are quick and easy<br />

to change between products,<br />

and which can run at very high<br />

efficiency, in greater demand.<br />

To meet these requirements,<br />

recent Ishida tray sealer<br />

developments have included<br />

features such as intelligent<br />

control systems with autoset<br />

features for integrated<br />

film coding, gas mixing and<br />

analysing, allowing one<br />

some of the latest challenges<br />

handling at high speeds in<br />

order to maximise product<br />

throughput.<br />

A key development for<br />

multi-product operations<br />

is the ability of some tray<br />

sealers to handle two different<br />

products simultaneously.<br />

In operation, two lanes of<br />

product can be fed into the<br />

tray sealer, with each lane<br />

operating independently at<br />

different speeds. This enables<br />

manufacturers to run two<br />

separate tray sizes, pack<br />

weights, or products, and even<br />

for two different customers,<br />

at the same time, in only one<br />

machine footprint, says Vine.<br />

Such examples of high<br />

speed combined with high<br />

flexibility, along with the<br />

long term reliability of the

equipment, can deliver low<br />

cost of ownership and fast<br />

return on investment, he says.<br />

Vine says that to ensure that<br />

product freshness and shelf<br />

life are guaranteed in every<br />

pack that leaves the factory,<br />

an effective monitoring<br />

system is also a vital part<br />

of a successful packing<br />

operation. The importance of<br />

this is demonstrated by figures<br />

from WRAP (the Waste &<br />

Resources Action Programme)<br />

that showed that packaging<br />

leaks have been associated<br />

with almost 500,000 tonnes<br />

of food wasted in production<br />

each year in recent times.<br />

PREVENTING LEAKAGES<br />

Equally important, if the<br />

leaking pack is not detected<br />

before it reaches the consumer,<br />

the dangers of damaging<br />

brand and company reputation<br />

are immense – and these can<br />

be played out very publicly<br />

in today’s social media<br />

obsessed world.<br />

To prevent this, there is<br />

a wide choice of inspection<br />

equipment available.<br />

Preserving shelf life is just<br />

one of the requirements of<br />

an effective packing line,<br />

along with other critical<br />

considerations such as<br />

maximising efficiencies and<br />

throughput. Therefore, while<br />

each machine is important in<br />

its own right, it is also vital<br />

that every piece of equipment<br />

is able to integrate effectively<br />

and operate as part of a fully<br />

automated packing operation<br />

that covers the weighing,<br />

filling, sealing and inspection<br />

of packs, and then placing<br />

them into cartons, boxes or<br />

Euro-trays.<br />

“This type of integrated<br />

approach will enable food<br />

manufacturers to drive<br />

out waste and maintain<br />

production quality in<br />

order to reduce risk and<br />

optimise performance,” says<br />

Vine. Equally important,<br />

investment in this type of<br />

equipment can deliver quick<br />

commercial returns both by<br />

minimising the costs incurred<br />

by product returns, and by<br />

ensuring consistent high<br />

quality products that reduce<br />

customer complaints. It also<br />

protects brand image and<br />

demonstrates to retailers<br />

that they are sourcing from<br />

responsible suppliers who<br />

can achieve and deliver<br />

high levels of customer<br />

satisfaction.<br />

“Establishing this type<br />

of reputation can also lead<br />

to new business as well as<br />

helping to retain existing<br />

contracts,” asserts Vine.<br />

Labelling, Coding and Marking<br />

Labelling machine is designed<br />

to evolve to meet new demand<br />

Herma describes the<br />

labeller it launched<br />

at Anuga FoodTec in<br />

<strong>March</strong> as the first ‘evolving’<br />

labelling machine.<br />

This new Herma 652B<br />

system specialises in costefficient<br />

top and/or base<br />

labelling of box-shaped<br />

products but this basic<br />

unit can be easily replaced<br />

by higher performance<br />

modules. Herma says this<br />

results in a considerably<br />

reduced investment volume<br />

while maximising forward<br />

compatibility.<br />

The 652B system features<br />

one or two Herma basic<br />

labellers, allowing users costefficient<br />

access to labelling<br />

technology. At speeds of 25<br />

metres a minute, about 100<br />

labels per minute, even the<br />

basic version manages both<br />

top and base labelling in<br />

one time-saving work step.<br />

A keypad with a display<br />

enables users to set the exact<br />

speed, and the integrated<br />

controller renders external<br />

control cabinets unnecessary.<br />

The machine processes<br />

The Herma 652B system was introduced at Anuga FoodTec as future-proof<br />

label sizes between 12 x 12<br />

and 160 x 400mm.<br />

However, the machine can<br />

be easily retrofitted with one<br />

or two high performance<br />

Herma 400 labellers should<br />

requirements regarding<br />

labelling speed, precision,<br />

and functions become more<br />

demanding over time.<br />

To accommodate this, the basic<br />

model was developed with<br />

connection points identical to<br />

those of the Herma 400.<br />

“For users, this means<br />

a considerably smaller<br />

investment volume compared<br />

to a system that features<br />

a Herma 400 from the start,”<br />

says Matthias Holder,<br />

sales director at Herma.<br />

He believes this is of particular<br />

benefit to smaller businesses<br />

introducing new products, as<br />

labelling output can be very<br />

hard to estimate.<br />

In addition, the new<br />

labelling machine features<br />

a variable speed conveyor belt<br />

and can be easily integrated<br />

into existing production lines.<br />

Additionally, it can process a<br />

wide range of product formats<br />

– the maximum product size<br />

is 260 (w) x 280 mm (h)<br />

with any length. Various<br />

application mechanisms can<br />

be used depending on the<br />

structure of the surfaces that<br />

need to be labelled. By default,<br />

label transfer is carried out<br />

via a rigid beak with a roller,<br />

a spring-loaded roller, or a<br />

brush. A pneumatic pivot beak<br />

can also be supplied.<br />

“The Herma 652B enables<br />

quick, flexible, and economic<br />

reaction to market changes,”<br />

says Martin Kühl, head of<br />

Herma’s Labelling Machines<br />

Division. “That is an essential<br />

advantage for users in<br />

small and medium-sized<br />

companies in the food<br />

industry where profit margins<br />

are often slim.”<br />

UNIQUE PACK CODES<br />

“Essentially, the system<br />

generates a unique code for<br />

each pack and transmits<br />

the codes to the printer on<br />

a carton-by-carton basis,”<br />

says Richard Pether, director<br />

at Rotech. Immediately after<br />

printing, an integrated camera<br />

automatically inspects the<br />

datamatrix barcode, OCR text<br />

and pharmacode. Linking<br />

all of these processes allows<br />

for maximum efficiency and<br />

ensures each individual pack<br />

is fully compliant.<br />

Components<br />

Guidance system helps<br />

to deliver functionality<br />

High speed, high volume<br />

and low maintenance<br />

were the performance<br />

demands placed on linear<br />

motion company HepcoMotion<br />

for a challenging packaging<br />

application for Bosch Packaging<br />

Technology in partnership with<br />

its recently acquired company,<br />

the Kliklok Corporation.<br />

The combination of<br />

Beckhoff’s XTS and Hepco’s<br />

GFX guidance system has<br />

enabled Bosch to develop a<br />

new product, boasting one of<br />

the highest speeds available<br />

for a solution with such a<br />

small footprint. Hepco’s GFX<br />

guidance for Beckhoff XTS<br />

is a highly versatile product<br />

that is rapidly being adopted<br />

in the packaging industry<br />

for applications such as this,<br />

where users are looking to<br />

benefit from vastly improved<br />

production rates with the<br />

ability to make on the fly<br />

product changes.<br />

The Kliklok integrated<br />

topload cartoner (ITC) forms top<br />

load style cartons or trays and<br />

automatically loads wrapped<br />

products into them before<br />

closing. It is a single integrated<br />

solution with three functions;<br />

carton forming, loading and<br />

closing – using one operator<br />

and one HMI. Central to this<br />

new machine is the intelligent<br />

transport system that is used<br />

to control and move the cartons<br />

from forming, right through<br />

to the finished pack. And this<br />

is where the GFX HepcoMotion<br />

guidance system for Beckhoff’s<br />

XTS eXtended transport system<br />

is used.<br />

Linear motion company<br />

HepcoMotion has worked with<br />

Beckhoff to develop specialised<br />

versions of the PRT2 and 1-Trak<br />

guidance systems to work with<br />

the Beckhoff XTS.<br />

LONG TERM DURABILITY<br />

This option meets the needs of<br />

higher duty XTS applications<br />

where motion profiles and long<br />

term durability requirements<br />

are particularly demanding.<br />

The Beckhoff XTS uses<br />

linear motor technology to<br />

drive independently controlled<br />

movers around a track.<br />

This is particularly useful in<br />

this application as it allows<br />

The Kliklok integrated (ITC) cartoner forms top load style cartons or trays<br />

Improved production rates and also product changes on the fly are delivered<br />

dwell at the operation stations.<br />

An individual mover can<br />

therefore be controlled and<br />

stopped at an operation station<br />

irrespective of the other movers.<br />

As each operation takes a<br />

different amount of time, this is<br />

an advantage for the Kliklok ITC<br />

as throughput is not limited by<br />

the slowest process.<br />

In this application, the<br />

Beckhoff XTS system integrates<br />

Hepco’s patented 1-Trak<br />

guidance system. Lightweight<br />

three bearing movers follow<br />

a track comprising straight<br />

and circular arc sections and<br />

a clothoid curved transition.<br />

This shape gives a gentler<br />

motion for the movers and<br />

allows the machine to run<br />

faster and more smoothly than<br />

would be possible for an oval<br />

shaped ‘running track’.<br />

The system rigidity offered<br />

by Hepco’s GFX track system<br />

is a core benefit for Kliklok<br />

– particularly for the carton<br />

forming module. The hardened<br />

steel guidance system is based<br />

on Hepco’s proven and precise<br />

V guide technology, which<br />

rigidly guides the movers<br />

around the track. This ensures<br />

accurate alignment and<br />

resistance to deflection to avoid<br />

inconsistent carton forming.<br />

large flow<br />

The latest digital flow switch to<br />

join the SMC family, PF3A7#H,<br />

monitors the consumption of the<br />

main line with a 100:1 ratio.<br />

This new addition to SMC’s<br />

flow switch family covers a large<br />

flow measurement range and<br />

features a clear and easy to<br />

read display, which is crucial in<br />

monitoring the main line, branch<br />

or specific equipment.<br />

With a 100:1 flow ratio, which<br />

is defined as the ratio between<br />

the full-scale range and the<br />

minimum point of measure,<br />

the PF3A7#H can detect leaks<br />

and monitor main line air<br />

consumption with just<br />

one simple product.<br />

Accuracy of information sits<br />

at the heart of the PF3A7#H,<br />

with a 3-colour and 3-label<br />

screen display that can rotate<br />

in increments of 90 degrees,<br />

allowing operators to take notes<br />

and set the flow switch while<br />

checking the measured value.<br />

Furthermore, an analogue<br />

output gives more detailed<br />

information of an application’s<br />

performance. In addition, the<br />

external input can reset the<br />

accumulated, peak and bottom<br />

values without the need for<br />

any manipulation.<br />

“This next generation flow<br />

switch offers our customers<br />

greater flexibility and<br />

functionality, while being very<br />

simple to set and operate,<br />

this coupled with low air loss,<br />

makes the PF3A7#H the ideal<br />

product for those who care about<br />

energy efficiency,” says an SMC<br />

spokesperson.<br />

Through a bore type structure<br />

made of aluminium alloy, the<br />

PF3A7#H is also very durable.<br />

shutdowns. The reduced torque<br />

and current slowly introduces<br />

energy to the motor, mitigating<br />

electrical and mechanical stress<br />

to the application. If these SCRs<br />

remain in the circuit once the<br />

motor is up to speed, the heat<br />

The SMC-50 smart<br />

motor controller<br />

generated by these<br />

devices leads to<br />

“Now, users<br />

have the option of<br />

choosing the proper<br />

power structure for<br />

their application<br />

when purchasing<br />

the SMC-50 smart<br />

motor controller,”<br />

explains Rick<br />

Anderson, product<br />

manager for soft<br />

starters at Rockwell.<br />

“For operations that<br />

run over an extended<br />

period, built-in internal bypass<br />

allows users to shift from<br />

solid-state switches to bypass<br />

contactors,” he continues.<br />

“By switching over to the<br />

bypass circuit, users can save<br />

on energy and decrease<br />

operational costs by minimising<br />

excess heat build-up.<br />

A MEASUREMENT RANGE OF UP TO EIGHT METRES<br />

Ultrasonic sensor launches<br />

Five different types of ultrasonic sensors which cover a wide range of<br />

measuring and monitoring tasks are now available from elobau. Three<br />

of these five sensor types are IO-Link compatible and therefore ready<br />

for Industry 4.0 applications. They are also available as an<br />

ATEX-certified version, and a version specially designed for level<br />

measurement in mobile equipment.<br />

The key to size-change<br />

improvement when using hand<br />

driven cranks is capturing<br />

the linear movements of the<br />

machine components and<br />

bringing them into the control<br />

system and then providing<br />

‘smart’ visual feedback to the<br />

machine operator during setup.<br />

To achieve this, a new<br />

encoder interface: BML SL1<br />

absolute magnetic encoder<br />

from Balluff with an IO-Link<br />

option has eliminated the<br />

problem of non-absolute<br />

feedback and the hassle<br />

of absolute position signal<br />

interface: IO-Link. This<br />

magnetic linear encoder is<br />

now available which features<br />

absolute position indication<br />

combined with the ease and<br />

convenience of the IO-Link<br />

communication protocol.<br />

Lastly, the machine operator<br />

requires a visual feedback<br />

regarding which direction<br />

and how far to turn the hand<br />

cranks. Balluff provides the<br />

answer in the form of an<br />

IO-Linked enabled, fully<br />

programmable multi-segment<br />

LED stack light. When a new<br />

machine set-up is required, the<br />

position parameters are stored<br />

in the controller. The controller<br />

communicates over IO-Link to<br />

these LED stack lights.<br />

Regulations<br />

Staying on the right<br />

side of WEEE<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 />

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

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

Last issue, we looked<br />

at the Restriction of<br />

Hazardous Substances<br />

(RoHS) Directive. Whereas<br />

this sets restrictions as to<br />

the material content of new<br />

electronic equipment placed<br />

on the market, the Waste<br />

Electrical and Electronic<br />

Equipment (WEEE) Directive<br />

2012/19/EU sets collection,<br />

recycling and recovery targets.<br />

Consequently, the RoHS<br />

Directive takes much of its<br />

scope from the more complex<br />

WEEE Directive.<br />

Many in the machinery<br />

industry may assume that<br />

the WEEE Directive does not<br />

apply to them, as three of the<br />

Directive’s exclusions include:<br />

• large-scale stationary tools<br />

• large-scale fixed<br />

installations<br />

• non-road mobile machinery<br />

made available exclusively<br />

for professional use.<br />

DEFINITIONS ARE KEY<br />

According to the Directive,<br />

large-scale stationary<br />

industrial tools are defined<br />

as: “a large-scale assembly of<br />

machines, equipment, and/<br />

or components, functioning<br />

together for a specific<br />

application, permanently<br />

installed and de-installed by<br />

professionals at a given place,<br />

and used and maintained by<br />

professionals in an industrial<br />

manufacturing facility or<br />

research and development<br />

facility”.<br />

Meanwhile, large scale fixed<br />

installations are defined as:<br />

“a large-size combination of<br />

several types of apparatus<br />

and, where applicable, other<br />

devices which:<br />

(a) are assembled,<br />

installed and de-installed by<br />

professionals<br />

(b) are intended to be used<br />

permanently as part of a<br />

building or a structure at a<br />

pre-defined and dedicated<br />

location; and<br />

(c) can only be replaced by<br />

the same specifically designed<br />

equipment”.<br />

Finally, non-road mobile<br />

machinery is defined by the<br />

Directive as: “machinery, with<br />

an on-board power source, the<br />

operation of which requires<br />

either mobility or continuous<br />

or semi-continuous movement<br />

between a succession of fixed<br />

working locations while<br />

working”.<br />

However, not all machinery<br />

is covered by these exclusions<br />

as smaller industrial<br />

equipment, including<br />

luminaires and electrical<br />

and electronic tools such as<br />

spraying or cutting equipment<br />

does in fact still fall under the<br />

WEEE Directive.<br />

The WEEE Directives<br />

regulations place specific<br />

obligations on producers of<br />

non-household EEE when<br />

it is discarded as waste by<br />

non-household end users<br />

in the European Union.<br />

As with household WEEE, the<br />

producer of commercial EEE<br />

equipment must finance its<br />

collection, treatment, recovery<br />

and environmentally sound<br />

disposal when it is discarded.<br />

However, the Directive<br />

does give business a little<br />

more flexibility than that<br />

experienced in the consumer<br />

WEEE market. This is<br />

because producers of the<br />

equipment and its end users<br />

are allowed to make their own<br />

contractual arrangements<br />

for the appropriate disposal<br />

of WEEE, and are not bound<br />

by the default arrangements<br />

required within the Directive<br />

for household waste.<br />

Some local authorities accept<br />

WEEE from small businesses for<br />

which there is normally a charge<br />

This means that two<br />

routes can be chosen for the<br />

correct collection, treatment,<br />

recovery and disposal of<br />

unwanted EEE:<br />

1) A commercial agreement<br />

for the producer to dispose<br />

of the WEEE on behalf of the<br />

end user<br />

2) The end user takes<br />

responsibility for the disposal<br />

of the WEEE.<br />

If a commercial agreement<br />

is entered into for the producer<br />

to dispose of the WEEE on<br />

behalf of the end user, they<br />

must report the relevant data<br />

to their Producer Compliance<br />

Scheme. However, if the<br />

agreement is for the end<br />

user to be responsible for the<br />

WEEE, the Directive places<br />

no obligations about the<br />

nature of these arrangements,<br />

and consequently there is<br />

no requirement for either<br />

party to report data to the<br />

agencies. However, both<br />

parties must ensure that they<br />

have documented proof that<br />

such an agreement has been<br />

reached, and the business<br />

end-user is also obliged to<br />

comply with the regulations<br />

by ensuring the satisfactory<br />

collection, treatment, recovery<br />

and environmentally sound<br />

disposal of the WEEE.<br />

COLLECTION POINTS<br />

Original producers of EEE<br />

are allowed to take two routes<br />

for the collection of waste.<br />

The first is for the direct<br />

collection of WEEE from<br />

end-users. The second route<br />

is the creation of central<br />

collection points, where<br />

the WEEE can be returned<br />

by the end user for treatment,<br />

reuse and recycling.<br />

As non-household end users<br />

of EEE do not have a legal right<br />

for the collection of WEEE<br />

from their own premises,<br />

or the right of free access to<br />

the Designated Collection<br />

Facilities network, it is likely<br />

that the option of a centralised<br />

collection point will be most<br />

efficient and cost effective for<br />

both producers and end users.<br />

Of course, some local<br />

authorities accept WEEE from<br />

small businesses for which<br />

there is normally a charge for<br />

this ‘trade waste’.<br />
