“W

aste not want not” is a wonderful little catchphrase, but as with most such idioms, reality is often quite different from wishful thinking and token lip service. Being one of the world’s most prosperous consumer societies should carry a certain burden of moral obligation to help make the world a better place for all of its rapidly growing population, but that hardly seems applicable in light of a shocking new statistical revelation showing that about $27 billion worth of food produced in Canada for domestic consumption ends up as waste—higher than the combined GDP (gross domestic product) of the world’s 32 poorest countries. According to a recent report from the Value Chain Management Centre, titled Food Waste in Canada, “An estimated $27 billion in Canadian food annually fi nds its way to landfi ll and composting, creating unnecessary high levels of carbon and methane.” To put this in further context, the amount of food we waste each year is more than Canadians spent on food purchased in restaurants in 2009; greater than the value of all of the country’s agricultural and afgri-food imports in 2007; and only slightly below the value of all Canadian agricultural and agri-food exports in 2007. Moreover, this sorry stat doesn’t even account for the wasted energy, water, packaging and human resources used in the production, transportation, foodservice and retailing of food products, according to the study, which links our wasteful ways to “a general lack of willingness and/or inability to coordinate activities occurring along the value chain.” While there is not much in the Centre’s report to make it an uplifting read, it is worth noting that for once, food packaging in general, and plastic packaging in particular, is not bashed as the waste generator it is often portrayed in popular media. In fact, “plastic packaging actually benefits us through markedly reducing food waste, by protecting food during transportation and handling,” says the study, which points to wasteful consumer behavior as responsible for over 50 per cent of the aforementioned $27-billion food waste. So next time we pat ourselves on the back for dumping some leftovers into a backyard compost, it may well be worth a second thought to consider how much of that waste was actually all that necessary to begin with. As another old idiom suggests, throwing stones is never a good idea for people living in glass houses.

Food companies remain cautious on new packaging machinery spending Despite some signs of revival in the North American economy last year, large food manufacturers remain fairly cautious about investing in new packaging machinery and equipment in 2011, according to a recent survey by the Arlington, Va.-based Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) showing that only 50 per cent of the polled food companies intend to make new machinery purchases this year—compared to 76 per cent of respondents with buying intentions in PMMI’s similar survey a year ago. While most of the responding food companies reported higher production volumes last year, “capital budgets are being doled out so carefully that many companies look to modify existing equipment, make do with what they have, or refurbish older equipment that wasn’t being used,” PMMI observes in the Trends and Advances in Food Packaging - 2010 report released near the end of last year. The study asserts that while North American food companies often fi nd themselves pressured to implement changes to existing primary packaging, to launch new products or to increase production, “deciding to buy new equipment is not often the fi rst consideration. “Whenever possible, companies are looking to use the equipment they have, or modify existing equipment, or redeploy the equipment that has been out of use,” states PMMI, noting that nearly two-thirds of its 550-plus member-companies—comprising leading U.S. and Canadian packaging machinery suppliers—serve the food industry. “The food industry has been considered recession-proof the last few years [but] food manufacturers are not exempt from the effects of the economy when justifying capital expenses,” the report states, describing its findings as “an indication of economic caution and closely-held capital budgets. “The uncertainty of the economic future has many food companies guarding their capital budgets,” PMMI notes, citing ROI (return-on-investment) as the “single greatest obstacle by far for justifying capital purchases.” According to the PMMI, food manufacturers today expect to recoup ROI payback between two and three years after the

machinery purchase. “The next two most frequently mentioned hurdles when purchasing equipment are the difficulty in obtaining funding and internal approval, followed closely by machine functionality—fi nding the best equipment for the application,” the study reveals. “Additional obstacles mentioned when purchasing new equipment are related to lead-times, footprint limitations, evaluating business growth and service/performance claims about the OEM (original equipment manufacturer),” the report adds. “Food companies are also scrutinizing the value of changing materials against the cost of bringing in new equipment,” the study notes, citing packaging sustainability as a major driver of increased focus on material substitution. “Whenever a new material is introduced, it is often followed by speculation as to what performance characteristics are true or false,” PMMI observes. “Renewable materials are under the microscope, even though they answer the goal of many food manufacturers who have, for years, sought solutions to move away from oil-based materials. “The materials industry continues to respond to the sustainable call with an ever-growing list of renewable and degradable material choices,” reports states, but there is still much work to be done before new eco-friendlier materials widely fulfill the key packaging performance requirements of helping extend product shelf-life; offer better product protection; reduce production costs; and to be affordable. “Food companies, while striving to bring environmentally-friendly packaging to the consumer shelf, cannot substantiate a decrease in throughput and the material must be equal to or better than the current option—and most importantly—bring cost advantages,” the report states.

Camino proud to display social conscience right on the package You don’t have to feel guilty about indulging in guilty pleasures like chocolate when it comes from a company like Camino—a fierce proponent of fair trade practices that prides itself on specializing in premium organic treats made from all-natural ingredients that are sourced from farmers struggling to make a decent living in various developing Third World countries. Founded in 1999 as part of the La Siembra Co-operative, located in the Ottawa-Gatineau region, the progressive, socially-conscientious company currently markets a range of 12 flavors of 100-gram Camino brand chocolate bars that have just had their packaging upgraded by a Vancouver-based branding consultancy Karacters Design Group—coinciding with Camino’s new strategy of expanding its product portfolio beyond cocoa and sugar products. “With organic and fair trade products increasingly entering the mainstream, Camino’s refreshed packaging is designed to appeal to the wider demographic who

are demanding better food politics,” says Karacters Design creative director James Bateman, explaining the redesign as “a joyful food revolution” aiming to reinforce Camino’s belief that the joy of eating great-tasting food, made from quality ingredients, will encourage consumers to think differently about their food—specifically where it came from, who made it, and what’s in it. With the word “camino” meaning “path” in Spanish, Karacters designers used the brand name as creative inspiration to use custom-drawn maps on the bright packaging that is fi lled with quirkily-named streets, Bateman relates, with illustrations reflecting the happy, vibrant and sustainable communities that Camino helps support through its fair trade practices. “This creative platform allows for consistent application across a variety of packaging formats, helping Camino to build strong brand recognition and shelf presence as it expands its product lines to chocolate snack-bars, sugars, various baking products and more,” says Bateman.

“Not only has demand increased for organic and fair trade products, but competition has increased dramatically as well,” says Camino’s chief operating officer Henk van der Molen. “Facing stiff competition from brands owned by large conglomerates, we needed to differentiate ourselves and turned to Karacters to help us express our story,” he says, complimenting the joyful illustrations on Camino’s new packaging developed by an acclaimed illustrator and fair trade advocate Chris Haughton. Adds Bateman: “Camino is a remarkable company that produces greattasting, high-quality products that are start-to-fi nish, top-to-bottom organic fair trade. “Through a growing range of premium organic fair trade foods, Camino is doing its part to bring social change to the world,” Bateman states, adding that Camino’s new visual identity is to be extended to all key customer touch points, including a refreshed logo, signage, stationary and website.

FOOD COMPANIES REMAIN CAUTIOUS…

to put pressure on food manufacturers to accelerate introduction of more innovative products for North American consumers—based on the fact that they are more keen to save money by cooking at home instead of eating out, while also continuing to demand more convenience in their packaged foods, such as having a choice of more single-serve, on-the-go and right-size portioned products. “Another indication that value-conscious consumers are tightening their budgets is a shift towards store-brand, lower-cost product purchases,” PMMI states. “Longstanding brand loyalty is eroding as consumers look for bargains and find satisfying quality with store brands.” In addition to facing greater private-label competition, food fi rms are also being pressured by retailers to reduce the amount of packaging shipped to their stores, the study observes. “Material reductions continue to be driven by Big Box stores and grocery chains in both the primary package and the corrugate material in secondary packaging,” states the report. “The latest trend of retail-ready packaging (RRP) is being considered, or is already being implemented, at 68 per cent of the food manufacturers participating in this report.” FOR MORE INFORMATION CIRCLE

HP’s blueprint for massive packaging waste diversion

Düsseldorf, Germany 12 – 18 May 2011

Big problems are rarely solved in baby steps and halfmeasures, and there is nothing little or half-hearted about the worldwide sustainability efforts being implemented by the global information technology powerhouse Hewlett-Packard Company (HP) of Palo Alto, Ca.—with a bit of help from its Canadian friends at the Montreal-based recycling systems and services provider Lavergne Group, whose breakthrough closedloop recycling program has enabled HP to have kept more than 160 million inkjet cartridges out of landfi lls since 2008, while manufacturing more than one billion new inkjet cartridges from fullyrecycled plastic. And while that alone has achieved a 22-percent carbon footprint cut and a 69-percent water use reduction in HP’s manufacturing process—compared to using virgin plastic— that’s just the beginning, with the world’s leading supplier of printers, copiers and imaging systems also pledging it will have used at least 100 million pounds of recycled plastic in its printing products by the end of 2011. “HP is an environmental leader among global companies, and these achievements are important milestones in our ongoing efforts,” says HP vice-president of sustainability Engelina Jaspers. “Applying our rich expertise and know-how, we’re creating more efficient, low-carbon technology solutions that help our customers save energy, resources and costs,” says Jasper, listing mpressive packaging reduction acheivements reached by HP during last year: • Reducing packaging waste last year by an equivalent of more than 300 million six-ounce Styrofoam cups and enough plastic to cover 1,400 football fields; • Using approximately 10.5 million pounds of recycled plastic in its consumer printers during 2010—roughly equal to the weight of 1,060 African elephants; • Saving up to 147 tons of corrugated fiberboard per year by shipping many of the company’s large-enterprise product line in ClearView packaging (see picture); • Starting to utilize fully-reusable and recyclable totes for shipping several HP consumer product lines; • Developing the world’s fi rst PVC-free printer— model ENVY 100 e-All-in-One—and achieving 35-percent recycled content in some of its printer series, including the Deskjet 3050 model; • Extending the use of Energy Star-certified devices to every aspect of HP’s product portfolio, including automated two-side printing for all models.

NOTES & QUOTES KBA North America director of technology Chris Travis demonstrates the real-time webcam technology (inset) to show how closely a remote customer can see a particular aspect of a running press at the company’s 6,000-square-foot customer center facility in Dallas, Tex.

 KBA North America, Dallas, Tex.-based subsidiary of German printing press technologies manufacturer KBA Group, has officially opened up the company’s new, 6,000-square-foot Customer Center facility, which is equipped with stateof-the-art presses as well as webcambased demonstration technologies for remote process demonstration, training, and application testing programs for the company’s current and prospective customers—enabling them to ask questions in real time and see upclose any special features of the press as it is printing a job. “Other printing press manufacturers may refer to their equipment centers as demo rooms or showcases, but our emphasis is squarely on the customer,” says Chris Travis, director of technology at KBA North America. “We’re pushing the boundaries of printing with key vendor-partners and providing unique printing processes, new substrates and unique screenings.” Located about a 10-minute drive from the Dallas/Ft. Worth Airport, the new facility— equipped with a Genius 52UV 20-inch waterless UV sheetfed offset press and a Rapida 75 eight-color 23x29-inch press—has also commenced a partnership with ClimatePartner to promote greater use of environmentally-friendly, eco-conscious printing practices. According to KBA, the 10 • WWW.CANADIANPACKAGING.COM

joint effort will enable it to achieve “climate-neutral” printing processes by using a standardized method to calculate the emissions of an individual print product and then offset those emissions by investing in approved climate protection projects.  Toray Plastics (America), Inc., North Kingstown, R.I.-based manufacturer of polyester, polypropylene, and bio-based fi lms for flexible and rigid packaging, lidding, graphic, industrial, optical and electronics applications, had received the prestigious 2010 Environmental Leadership Award of the Tag and Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI) in the competition’s Technical Innovation Category in recognition of the company’s comprehensive sustainability initiatives focusing on energy conservation, reduction of solid waste to landfi lls, water conservation and commitment to the use of future eco-friendly technologies such as solar power and wind turbines. “Environmental stewardship is a core principle of Toray,”

says Milan Moscaritolo, director of sales and marketing for the company’s Lumirror Polyester Film Division unit. “We are honored to be recognized for our efforts and pleased to be affi liated with TLMI, an organization dedicated to enhancing sustainability within the industry.”

 Silgan Holdings Inc., Stamford, Conn.-headquartered manufacturer of metal containers for food packaging applications and plastic containers for personal-care products, has completed an all-cash acquisition of IPEC Global, Inc., New Castle, Pa.-based plastic manufacturer of closures for the North American dairy and juice producers with estimated annual sales of US$35 million. “We believe IPEC provides an excellent line extension to our closures business,” says Silgan’s chief fi nancial officer Bob Lewis. “Combined with our existing closures business, adding manufacturing facilties in New Castle and Brewton, Alabama, provides new opportunities to broaden our existing franchise.”  BWAY Holding Company, Atlanta, Ga.-based supplier of general line rigid containers, has completed the acquisition of Phoenix Container, Inc., North Brunswick, N.J.-based manufacturer of steel pails for industrial and consumer goods packaging applications with estimated 2009 net sales of US$34 million. “This acquisition represents a continuation of our strategy to invest in growth within our core markets where significant synergies exist,” says BWAY president and chief executive Ken Roessler, noting that BWAY now operates a total of 23 manufacturing plants located throughout the U.S. and Canada.  International private equity investment group GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft has reached an agreement to acquire Convenience Food Systems (CFS)—a leading manufacturer of meat processing and packaging equipment and machinery headquartered in Bakel, The Netherlands—for an undisclosed amount. Headquartered in Germany, GEA Group is one of the world’s largest providers of industrial technology services and processes, with the food and energy processing sectors accounting for 70 per cent of its total 2009 revenues of about $5.86 billion. “This acquisition follows our declared strategy to expand the food process technology activities of GEA Group horizontally,” explains GEA chief executive officer Jürg Oleas, adding the deal is expected to be formally concluded in the first half of 2011, pending the required regulatory and antitrust approvals.

ECO-PACK NOW

THE NAKED TRUTH IN JUICE PACKAGING Having nothing to hide is a commendable way to go about things in many walks of life, and it has certainly had its share of rewards for Naked Juice Company, Monrovia, Ca.-based super-premium juicemaker renowned for using only the best barenaked fruits and vegetables to make its all-natural juices and juice and protein smoothies—without adding any sugar, preservatives, or artificial colors and flavors. Earlier this year, the PepsciCo subsidiary has kept its ongoing quest for transparency going full-tilt by converting the company’s 10-, 15.2-, and 64-ounce juices and smoothies to the recently-launched reNEWabottle clear plastic containers made from 100-percent, post-consumer recycled rPET (renewable polyethylene terephthalate)—reducing the beverage producer’s consumption of virgin plastics by an estimated 7.4 million pounds a year.

GOING SKIN-DEEP FOR SUSTAINABILITY

For skin-care products giant Beiersdorf Group, sustainability is a beautiful thing when done right—as with the redesign of crème jars for its bestselling Aquaphor Healing Ointment and Eucerin Moisturizing Creme dryskin aids. Previously retailing across the U.S. in thick-wall crème jars, both products have been relaunched in much lighter new containers—a thinwall outer shell based on the original 500-ml design and a lighter version of the old 150-ml jar—manufactured at the RPC Bramlage-Wiko USA facility in Morgentown, Pa. All the packaging components are injection-molded in lightweight polypropylene, with the white outer wall helping accentuate branding information on the transparent product labels.

“At Naked Juice, we’ve always been transparent about what we put into our juices and smoothies, using only the highest-quality ingredients and never adding sugars or preservatives,” says Naked Juice director of marketing Brad Armistead. “The transition to the reNEWabottle is a natural evolution to fulfill our brand mission of making superior products while minimizing our impact on the environment.” First launched last November for the 32-ounce Naked Juice brand juice, the recyclable reNEWabottle will also help the company to reduce the bottle’s GHG (greenhouse gas) emissions by 35 per cent—the equivalent of saving more than 500,000 gallons of gas annually—while also saving more that 12,000 cubic meters of space in landfi lls, according to the juicemaker,

which has implemented several other notable sustainability initiatives in recent months, including: • Teaming up with the Rainforest Alliance last year to procure its bananas, which are used in 80 per cent of the company’s products; • Completing a full carbon life-cycle assessment and developing a comprehensive long-term plan to shrink its carbon footprint; • Rebuilding its manufacturing facility using state-of-the-art technology to earn the prestigious LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the U.S. Green Building Council—in recognition of the design’s progressive energy and water efficiency characteristics that go well beyond the industry standard.

TORAY TO HARNESS SOLAR POWER Making quality plastics is a very energyintensive endeavor, but for Toray Plastics (America), Inc., manufacturing precision-performance polypropylene, polyester, and biobased films for packaging and industrial applications at its 70-acre production complex in North Kingstown, R.I. (see picture) will be a much cleaner business following the pending completion of a state-of-theart, US$2-million solar phtovoltaic field later this year. To occupy about three acres, the 446-kw solar power field will consist of 1,650 PV panels with utility-scale single-access trackers, according to Toray Plastics, making it the largest solar-powered system in the state. Generating about 625 mWh (megawatt hours) a year, the new PV field will reduce the production site’s CO 2 (carbon-dioxide) emissions by 340 tons annually, says Toray Plastics, enahncing a ser-

ies of other recent environmental improvements: • Saving 29 million gallons of water, 8.5 million KWh of electricity and 10.1 billion BTUs annually, compared to 2004 levels; • Achieving zero landfi ll waste in the company’s internal operations through a rigorous recycling program that is estimated to save 285 tons of wood, 152 tons of metal, 59 tons of cardboard and 46 tons of paper, bottles and cans annually. “Choosing solar technology to help power our operations is another example of our commitment to the well-being of our business, the community and the planet,” says company president Richard Schloesser, adding construction of the PV field is expected to wrap up by the third quarter of 2011. “We’re also very pleased that the installation will bring new jobs to Rhode Island residents.”

The Alvey 952 series palletizer from Intelligrated represents a new breed of hybrid palletizing systems combining the best attributes of conventional automatic palletizing technology with with the precisision and repeatability of robotics.

MANY MEANS TO AN END Why robotic and conventional palletizing both have their time and BY PAT O’CONNOR

W

hile conventional automatic palletizers have been around sine the 1950s, their reign as the equipment of choice in end-of-line packaging applications may have seemed like it was coming to an end during the 1990s, when gantry and jointed arm robots started making significant inroads in palletizing—leading many in the industry to conclude that the days of conventional palletizers were well and truly numbered. But while there is no denying the robotic systems’ undoubted “wow factor” buzz and marketing cachet as new-generation “flexible automation” technologies for the high-throughput, high-SKUs (stock-keeping units)

JANUARY 2011 • CANADIAN PACKAGING

applications—as well as for handling irregular product shapes like pails or bags—there are still enough applications around where the “fi xed automation” of conventional automatic palletizers makes more pragmatic sense. Each technology has its own uses and advantages, with applications that favor the use of robotic palletizing typically including: • Low-speed Multi-lines. In order to handle more than one product at a time, a conventional palletizer needs to accumulate layers or loads of like product on an upstream conveying system and then feed them into a palletizer that automatically changes the layering patterns, whereas a palletizing robot can potentially simplify multi-line palletizing by eliminating the upstream conveyor system.

By being able to build several loads inside the robot’s work envelope, the robots can allow the arm to work on all the loads at the same time, while storing the partial loads in cubic form at floor level. This is a very effective concept for lower-speed lines, generally when dealing with throughput speeds of 15 cases per minute, per line, or slower. • Bag Palletizing. Jointed-arm robots today dominate the bag palletizing business, incorporating clamshell tooling that allows the robot to pick the bag from a roller conveyor and place it on the load without disturbing the contents of the bag— resulting in a consistently straight and square load. Continues on page 18

AUTOMATION MANY MEANS TO AN END Continued from page 17

Furthermore, the bag being dropped into place allows the robot to achieve higher rates than with case palletizing—frequently above 20 cycles per minute—with the robot’s inherent ability to work in confi ned spaces and dusty environments also making them an attractive equipment option in the bag palletizing business. • Pail Palletizing. Because most pails are constructed so that the bottom of the pail nests inside the lid of the pail below when stacked on a pallet, pail palletizing provides an ideal application for using robots, which can precisely and repeatedly place the pails so that each layer nests perfectly inside the previous layer. • Display Loads. Display loads frequently require fourway, labels-out orienting, multiple different sheets within a single load, special dunnage, etc., and while these requirements can also be addressed with a conventional palletizer, the cost of extra product handling may increase to the point where robotics can provide a more practical and cost-effective solution. For their part, conventional palletizers still remain an effective option for following applications: • High-speed Palletizing. Conventional automatic palletizers are capable of achieving very high throughput speeds, which is why they continue to be routinely specified for high-speed manufacturing lines found in the food, beverage and many other consumer goods industries. Surprisingly, they can also be more flexible than robots in regards to product packaging and stacking patterns, with some inline, continuous-motion palletizers capable of handling up to 200 cases and/or 20 layers per minute. Because robots are intermittentmotion machines, it would take many of them working together to achieve these speeds, hence for high-speed manufacturing operations there is no bvetter alternative to get the job done at required speeds. • Reduced Product Packaging. Essentially, robots pick and place the product, whereas conventional palletizers work by conveying the product into position. 18 • WWW.CANADIANPACKAGING.COM

Because they never have to pick up the product themselves, conventional palletizers are inherently more tolerant of packaging changes, with one such system capable of handling cases, trays, fi lm bundles, poly-sacks, etc., with equal efficiency and reliability. • Complex Pattern Forming. Because conventional palletizers handle each case individually, any required pattern changes have a relatively small impact on the rate of throughput. In order to get reasonable throughput from a limited-cycle rate, robots are generally handling multiple cases at a time, so that if case sizes or stacking patterns change frequently, there will be a dramatic drop in the throughput rate. For example, changing from a nineblock, column-stacked pattern to a nine-block pinwheel pattern will frequently result in a 50-percent rate reduction on a robotic system. • Conventional and Robotic Hybrids. These palletizers combine articulated-arm robots with conventional palletizers—resulting in a effective solution that integrates the flexibility and repeatability of robotic arms with the speed and the reliability of the conventional palletizers. The first common hybrid solution to combine conventional pattern forming with robotic layer deposit used the forming section of a conventional palletizer to form the layer, and a large robot to deposit the layer, turned out to offer few practical advantages, since the robot was too complex and slow a device compared to the conventional palletizer. However, the concept of robotic pattern forming with conventional layer deposit really combines the best of both technologies for higher-rate applications, with robots being used to turn and position the cases precisely as required, while the conventional technology is used to square and deposit the layers of product. Because the robot does not have to lift the product, it can operate at more than 40 cycles per minute on a wide range of package types, and because cases do not have to be positioned in fi xed-lane locations, pattern flexibility is improved and new pattern creation is simplified. While the cost for this sort of a system is still higher than that of a conventional automatic palletizing system,

the added expense can be justified in certain applications. In summary then: • Conventional palletizers will continue to provide a high-speed palletizing solution for many years to come. Robots cannot duplicate the continuous motion operation of high-speed palletizers or the flexibility of the palletizer when handling complex patterns and multiple package types, while the palletizers’ relatively low cost and flexibility will ensure their enduring popularity. • While robots already dominate lowspeed, multi-line and bag palletizing applications, a growing number of new applications that will benefit from their robotic precision, combined with their “high-tech” image, will ensure the technology’s continued growth. • Expect dramatic growth in the use of hybrid applications, where the robot functions as a component of a machine. There are already robots being used to manipulate cases inside the conventional palletizers, and as mass production continues to lower the cost of robotics, more and more applications—such as tier sheet inserting—are bound to be performed robotically sooner rather than later.

PASSING THE TEST IN A HURRY

Busy medical testing lab a healthy showcase of automation efficiencies BY JIM McMAHON

JANUARY 2011 • CANADIAN PACKAGING

A reader mounted onto each of the Motoman robot’s six grippers instantly gathers all the important information from the attached barcodes as the tubes are being rotated into proper positions.

“To fi nd a sample, a lab technician had to go into the walk-in freezer with a box number (an X/Y reference) and search manually, and the personnel were required to enter the freezer in pairs for safety reasons, wearing coats—making looking for a specimen a fairly labor-intensive and time-consuming process.” Because of ARUP’s esoteric testing environment—whereby more than 1,000 different tests comprise 80 per cent of its test volume—the amount of small-batch tests handled by ARUP required an urgent automation overhaul, relates Falk, to eliminate of excessive handling and sorting; improve the tracking, storage and retrieval of specimens for repeat or additional testing; and enable real-time communication among all of ARUP’s laboratoryrelated software systems.

The lab’s upgrade commenced with installation of a proprietary ARUP software system called ESP (Expert Specimen Processing) to facilitate rules-based automation of its specimen processing, along with enabling automated storage of specimens and complete specimen tracking. The initial computer input of the specimen information is done in the doctor’s office and assigned a barcode, explains Falk, which is then logged into the ESP software. Even before the sample arrives at ARUP, all of the specimen’s data— where it is going and what needs to be done with it—is made available in real time, and the ESP then tracks the specimen with laser scanning of the attached barcode throughout its entire Continues on page 20

s one of the largest medical testing laboratories in the United States, ARUP Laboratories is naturally a highly automated facility. Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, the Associated Regional and University Pathologists, Inc. (ARUP) is home to one of the world’s largest clinical laboratory freezers— operating at -20°C—outfitted with a two-storey AS/RS (automated storage and retrieval system that can hold up to 5,220 stainless- steel storage trays of specimens on indexed shelf locations, with total capacity of over 2.3 million individual specimens. At the heart of the operation is a highly-automated sorting and transport system consisting of two Motoman robotic sorters—used to and unload fi nished specimens into storage trays —and continuous-flow Shuttleworth “smart” conveyors, which jointly retrieve and transport specimens for clinical testing in less than 2.5 minutes, with a capacity of handling 4,000 specimens per hour. Formed in 1984 as a national clinical and anatomic pathology reference laboratory and a wholly-owned enterprise of the University of Utah’s Department of Pathology, ARUP today employs over 2,500 people and offers in excess of 2,000 tests and test combinations—ranging from routine screening tests to highly esoteric molecular and genetic assays. Billing itself as a role model for bridging the gap between academic medicine and successful business enterprise, ARUP was not always the showcase of precision automation and high-volume, efficient laboratory specimen handling it is today, according to George Falk, project specialist at ARUP’s Central Support Services Group. “Before the arrival of automation, ARUP was using walk-in freezers at three different locations to store specimens,” recalls Falk. “The samples were stored manually in cardboard trays, with a capacity of about 400,000 specimens.

A reader mounted on each of the robot’s six grippers reads barcodes as the tubes are rotated by the robot— eliminating the need to orient the barcodes—with the AutoSorters able to sort up to 2,000 tubes per hour into user-defi nable targets. The AutoSorters are positioned within a large refrigerator, maintained at 4°C, which located at the front of the freezer—serving as an anteroom to the freezer. When the automated doors to the freezer are opened to allow trays to go in or out, the environmentallycontrolled humidity of the refrigerator ensures that condensation does not form on the outside of the specimen tubes, which would inhibit reading the labels and barcodes on the sides of the tubes. A PC-based control system used to control the AutoSorters communicates directly with the ESP to obtain specimen data— improving traceability and

life-cycle within the system. To optimize its sample processing and tracking capabilities, ARUP adopted a 5-ml standardized transfer tube which fits into the system’s transport carriers and is tracked through ESP throughout the system. Falk says that using ESP and standardized tubes helped optimize the world’s fi rst automated thawing and mixing workcell that thaws and mixes frozen specimens while in transport at a rate of more than 1,000 per hour— allowing specimens in the transfer tubes to be thawed in 30 to 40 minutes, instead of the typical frozen urine samples requiring five to six hours to dethaw in 90-cc bottles. Falk says that an automated transport and sorting system—enabling rapid transport to and from the specimen processing area and high-speed sorting of tubes into a large number of different sort groups— Smart conveyors entering and expedites even the most leaving the freezer feature remote specimen from the innovative Slip-Torque technology processing workstation to to achieve low back-pressure the further-located robotic accumulation in order to minimize sorter in less than eight any potential product damage. minutes, conveyed on a 1,100-foot-long linear track. “The continuous flow of specimens to the robotic sorters, which are located near the lab- eliminating sorting errors, while passoratory area, has eliminated consider- ing sort results passed back to ESP to able walking from the lab to where maintain full traceability of the specithe specimens are processed,” relates men at all times.

The conveyors boast Shuttleworth’s proprietary Slip-Torque technology, which minimizes sample damage by creating low back-pressure accumulation—allowing the low line pressure throughout the continuous-motion accumulation conveyors to execute precise product placement with the AutoSorters. The conveyors can continue to take product flow from the upstream line for a period of time instead of stopping, while a low-pressure accumulation buffer absorbs irregularities in the production flow, and provides a smooth, even flow on the line. The Slip-Torque solution utilizes individually-powered rotating roller shafts and loose-fit rollers, which become the conveyor surface, powered by a continuous chain to control the drive force for the samples. When the samples stop on the surface of the conveyor, the segmented rollers beneath them also stop—generating low back-pressure accumulation and minimizing sample damage. The innovative SlipTorque system is designed to allow the same conveyor to be split into three independently-operating lanes, so that the middle lane can accumulate while at the same time, the right and left lanes continue conveying. Although each lane can act independently, the entire system is powered by only one motor, according to Falk, helping reduce energy costs. Once the Shuttleworth system conveys and positions a master rack and a series of sample trays, the robotic cell transfers specimens from the master rack to the assigned sample trays— depending on what tests or diagnostics are to be preformed. “The tracking of the specimen has improved greatly with automation,” sums up Falk. “Not only do we know always know where the specimen is., but there are also significant labor and time savings as well, and the system is much more convenient to use.” Jim McMahon is a U.S.-based writer specializing in industrial automation technology.

The Predis™ Capdis™ technology developed for Sidel Combi machines is a unique, sustainable dry decontamination process for preforms and caps. Is typically used for sensitive applications (limited shelf life, extended shelf life and aseptic) when advanced hygiene is required and when the use of water for bottle decontamination has to be avoided. COMBI Blow-fill-cap monoblock system. Sidel proposes an integrated system which combines blow molding, filling and capping solutions. . Main features Output: from 10,800 to 61,200 bottles/h. Bottle size: 0.25 L to 2.5L Features: DeepGrip™ “The comfortable handling for your large packages”, FreeShape™, SmartWeight™ “Lighten up on plastic, sustain high performance” EcoLoop™ “Economical and ecological package, make it real”, SafeSense™ Innovations: Up to 45% less power consumption. New oven configuration, with fewer lamps per module and fewer number of heating modules, leading to a 43% reduction in the installed electrical power. Bottle Switch: Less than a minute to change a mold Benefits: Significant cost reduction due to fewer operators and maintenance needs. High hygiene control with the enclosed environment and no intermediate equipment. Differentiation through packaging with total freedom of bottle shape and great lightweighting potential. Flexibility and choice owing to its wide scope of bottle dimensions and to its quick change system. Simplicity to install, use and maintain (“plug and blow” concept). The advantages of innovative technology such as pitch change during transfer or a cam system to command the mold unit. MAIN BENEFITS SAFETY Food safety: 100% of bottles produced are decontaminated thanks to activation of H2O2 during oven thermal conditioning Improved food quality and contribution to extended shelf life SUSTAINABILITY AND SAVINGS Great bottle lightweighting potential: preform decontamination means no thermal stress or deformation of empty bottles No water consumption: no rinser STANMECH TECHNOLOGIES INC.

CANADIAN PACKAGING • January 2011


ANNOUNCEMENTS  St. Louis, Mo.-based plastic containers blowmolder Alpha Packaging has completed the acquisition of Progressive Plastics, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio, manufacturer and decorator of plastic bottles and containers for personal-care, auto-care, houseware and food industries, in what Alpha calls its largest acquisition to date. “This acquisition is an important fi rst step to developing new business in key industries which are critical to Alpha’s growth plan,” explains Alpha president Dave Spence. “Progressive is a well-run company with attractive product lines in household chemicals and food packaging markets,” says Spence, adding the newly-purchased Cleveland plant is to be integrated into Alpha’s Techograph decorating division, with former long-time Progressive executives staying on to run the plant’s day-to-day operations.  Chicago-based rigid packaging products supplier Berlin Packaging has completed its second large acquisition in less than a year with the recent buyout of Continental Packaging Solutions of Chicago—a prominent manufacturer of glass and plastic containers and closures for multiple industries and a solid presence in the fast-growing Chinese market. Coming 10 months after Berlin’s acquisition of Pittsburgh, Pa.-based All-Pak Inc., the deal provides Berlin with a vastly enhanced customer base, further geographic reach and greater supply-chain efficiencies, according to company officials, with over 70 sales and warehouse locations across North America enabling it to entrench its position as one of the continent’s premier one-source rigid packaging solutions providers.  Consumer packaging products group Silgan Holdings Inc. of Stamford, Conn., has reached a defi nitive agreement to purchase the food can business of Austrian-based canmaker Vogel & Noot in a deal estimated at about $330 million. Headquartered in Vienna, Vogel & Noot currently operates 12 food can manufacturing facilities throughout central and eastern Europe, generating revenues of nearly $330 million per year. “As a leader in the metal food can business, we are excited about the opportunity JANUARY 2011 • CANADIAN PACKAGING

to expand the Silgan franchise as we partner with our global customers to support their growth in the central and developing eastern European markets,” says Silgan president Tony Allott, adding he expect the deal to close in the fi rst quarter of 2011, subject to regulatory approvals and completion of certain closing conditions.  Adept Technology, Inc., Pleasanton, Ca.-based supplier of machine vision-controlled robotic systems for packaging, material handling and other industrial applications, has reached an agreement to acquire InMoTx—a leading supplier of automated inspecting, sorting, grading and packaging systems and technologies for orgainc foods processing market based in Denmark—in a cash-and-stock transaction estimated at about US$4.3 million. Adept Technology president John Dulchinos says the acquisition— expected to be formalized this month pending customary closing conditions—will extend the company’s presence in the fast-growing, global marketplace for natural foods with a vastly expanded portfolio of technologies designed to reduce or eliminate the risks of product contamination related to manual handling, complemented by a well-established industry network and applications experience.  Cincinnati, Ohio-based packaging equipment manufacturer and integrator Pro Mach, Inc. has completed the acquisition of Shuttleworth, Inc., a prominent manufacturer of automated conveyors and related product handling machinery headquartered in Huntington, Ind. Founded in 1962, Shuttleworth operates manufacturing facilities in Huntigton, Belgium and Malaysia—boasting a global installation base of over 15,000 systems across the food-and-beverage, healthcare, auto parts, electronics, paper handling and energy sectors—with the company’s Slip Torque range of conveyor automation solutions and devices earning it worldwide acclaim among its in-process manufacturing clients and customers.  Pittsburgh, Pa.-headquartered plastics and polymers processing group Bayer MaterialScience LLC has

completed an expansion project aimed at boosting the capacity of polycarbonate fi lm production at the company’s 147,000-square-foot facility in South Deerfield, Mass. According to the company, the upgrade will enable the plant to manufacture high-gloss and textured Makrofol polycarbonate and Bayfol polycarbonate-blend fi lms, engineered for a broad range of applications—including polycarbonate-blend fi lm ranges instrument panels, trade show displays, membrane switches, control panels and decals— in the appliance, automotive, medical, nameplate, packaging, labeling POP (point-of-purchase) display and consumer electronics industries. “We now have everything in place—the capacity, quality, service and technical expertise—to meet our customers’ needs,” says Shaun Gaus, North American general manager for functional fi lms at Bayer MaterialScience LLC. “This investment further demonstrates our long-standing commitment to the fi lms business and customers in North America.”  Transilwrap Company, Inc., Franklin Park, Ill.-based manufacturer and converter of plastics for the the extrusion, laminating, printable plastics, industrial and specialty packaging/fi lm markets, has completed the acquisition of Interfi lm Holdings, Inc., one of the largest and most diversified U.S.-based headquartered in Greenville, S.C. “Interfi lm has an extremely impressive reputation in the business and is highly respected in the U.S. and Canadian markets,” says Transilwrap president Andy Brewer. “This strategic combination of products, services and employees will enable us to offer our customers more diverse solutions, backed by expanded production assets and a highly experienced team of sales, operations and customer service employees,” says Brewer, citing Iterfi lm’s recent acquisition of Brushfoil LLC as a perfect fit for Transilwrap’s strategic growth strategy. Adds former Interfi lm president Donnie Thompson: “This acquisition will provide valuable resources to allow Interfi lm and Brushfoil to expand their market reach and offer customers increased converting services and more diverse product lines.” WWW.CANADIANPACKAGING.COM • 79

A

lthough I can only guess at what may be behind it, it seems potato chip manufacturers have real issues with grasping what packaging sustainability is all about—as PepsiCo’s recent decision to pull the biodegradable bags it was using for its SunChips brand off the store-shelves on the account of them being “too noisy” for some shoppers indicates. A laughable decision, it would seem, which cast serious doubt on the food-and-beverage giant’s depth of commitment and sincerity about reducing its environmental footprint in a meaningful way. But it’s not just the big guys either, as the New Brunswick-based Covered Bridge Potato Company Inc. demonstrates with the puzzling use of burlap sacks to cover its bags of the Old Fashioned Kettle Style Potato Chips brand—tossing in an extra, completely unnecessary layer of packaging that is neither practically useful, having no handle and unable to stand up on its own, nor particularly attractive to look at, with the heavy black print on both sides of the bag making it very reader-unfriendly, especially on the backside. While I realize that a large hemp burlap sack can be extremely durable for transporting bulky foods such as raw potatoes or coffee beans, using it as a secondary packaging layer for chips adds nothing in either product protection or shelf-appeal—coming across as an exercise in packaging excess for its own sake. Priced at a hefty $3.99 per bag, much of it to cover the artificially-inflated packaging costs no doubt, this ill-conceived packaging idea is greatly in need of an urgent rethink.

Conversely, the gift-box and giftbasket packaging such as the Crystal Waters Spa Warm Vanilla set—retailing through the Shoppers Drug Mart chain—offers recession-weary Canadian consumers a much-needed break from high prices, with classy and 82 • WWW.CANADIANPACKAGING.COM

elegant packaging to match. Packing several quality products in one attractive and highly reusable take-home package—including shower gel, body lotion, bubble bath, body scrub, bath fi zz and a soft sponge—this body-care products ensemble conveniently alleviates the need for subsequent gift-wrapping during the busy holiday season, while rewarding consumers with much more product for the money than buying all these items individually. With all the products inside held securely in plastic wrap and fitting perfectly onto a gold-foiled platform, the eye-pleasing package is perfectly crowned with a foil bow for that extra luxurious touch of glamor, with its product information tag also multitasking handily as a gift-card. Defi nitely a great pick-up for holidays, as well as any other time of the year for that matter, such as basket would work equally well for product bundles comprised of gourmet foods, cosmetics, petcare accessories, baby items, car-care aids and many other such consumer goodies.

It seems only fair to expect to pay a little extra for quality, and in case of Pastore pasta—imported from the Calabria region of southern Italy by the Woodbridge, Ont.-based Maremeo Foods Inc.—it is worth every penny. Over the years, I have become a big lover of the many impressive, authentic home-made pastas offered by the brand, developing a special fondness for its maccheroni al ferro variety. Packaged in crisp 500-gram cellophane bags proudly boasting “Real Italian Tradition” credentials—with gold-colored metallic grommets and a ribbon-shaped, diecut cardboard tag adding an extra dash of packaging pizzazz—no two pieces of this hand-crafted pasta variety, made with 100-percent locally-grown, high-quality durum wheat semolina flour, are exactly alike: all differ-

ing in density, length, surface smoothness and muted tones of the product’s milky-white, dough-like appearance. The clear stand-up pouches are sublimely enhanced by the warm, inviting product labels on top—making the pasta look like it deserves to be served up in a highend Mediterranean bistro, but it has become one of my favorite standbys in our own kitchen too.

Just because a product has been around for an eternity does not mean that there’s no way to finetune its packaging and ease-of-use, as capably demonstrated by the Glad Cling Wrap from The Clorox Company of Canada, Ltd. Simply by relocating the box’s cutting strip to just underneath the fold-over flap, the product has been made eminently more user-friendly by no longer having the sharp metal cutting strip hanging below the bottom edge of the box—posing a risk to your fingers as well as making it far too easy to scratch delicate surfaces like polished wooden tables and expensive kitchen counters. This is a great example of taking the initiative to rethink a long-standing package design

and solve a problem by doing one simple thing—just moving the cutting strip from one place to another for easier dispensing and safer product handling and storage. If only we could apply this logic to everything, wouldn’t our world be a much better place? Rhea Gordon is a freelance writer living in Toronto. CANADIAN PACKAGING • JANUARY 2011

CHIPPING AWAY AT PACKAGING EXCESS


“Our PHIN Labeler Never Lets Us Down” — Dale Lukens Project Mechanic The Black Velvet Distilling Company “We’ve been running two PHIN labelers at our Lethbridge, Alberta plant since the 1970’s,” declares Black Velvet’s Dale Lukens. “These machines have been thoroughly updated by PHIN with the latest technology and controls. Their parts and service are second to none.” V.P. of Operations and Plant Manager, Rory Wright adds, “We have also been impressed by PHIN’s ability to find solutions for unique applications and odd container shapes.” Lukens concludes, “PHIN’s biggest asset is their service. Their labelers are built to last, and whenever we need service they bend over backwards to help us out. They even added a pressure sensitive station to their wet glue SM 1800 for us. I didn’t think that was possible!” For reliable and versatile labeling machinery, make your next investment in a PHIN labeler.
