New guidance on food allergies to help food firms help themselves

Food allergies are one of the modern science’s greatest mysteries, and one of the industry’s most pressing challenges looking for the right solution.

As deftly noted by the brilliant American scientist and entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki, “I think it is absolutely crazy in this day and age that I have to go through a trial-and-error method to see if my child is allergic to an antibiotic or peanuts. I should just know.”

3+ MILLION

We could not agree more. According to credible statistical surveys, food allergies a ect more than three million Canadians, roughly one in 10 people, for whom trial-and-error can be a very perplexing journey in the age of mass food manufacturing and rapid food SKU (stock-keeping units) proliferation at their local grocers.

For these folks, choosing the right product can be a frustrating, time-consuming experience centered around reading and understanding the vague on-pack ingredient information and warnings—often positioned on the back of the pack as an afterthought in barely legible type, just enough to meet legal requirements but no more.

According to Food Allergy Canada, “Food allergens such as peanuts, shellfish, wheat, eggs, and milk a ect over three million Canadians, including 600,000 children, and impact one-in-two households.

“This community relies on access to accurate ingredient information,” the association notes, “yet current food labeling practices, specifically precautionary allergen labeling, is confusing to consumers—making it di cult to navigate safe food options.”

Commendably, Food Allergy Canada is taking a proactive approach to helping fill this communication gap with its recently-released Allergen Management Guidelines for Food Manufacturers document—providing a practical framework for Canadian food and beverage manufacturers on how to develop an allergen control plan or assess their current plan within their facility. Moreover, the guidelines include thoughtful recommendations on the use of precautionary allergen labeling to ensure it can be used as an e ective risk communication tool.

Developed using multi-stakeholder

approach to incorporate input from food manufacturers, academia, consumers and allergists, this invaluable resource combines thoughtful insights from industry best practices, international industry guidelines, scientific and expert community reports, and Canadian food manufacturer expertise to create a comprehensive, logical and easy-to-grasp manual for helping food manufacturers help themselves by nudging allergy-prone consumers to make safe choices at the shelf level.

Rich in detail, analysis and science-based data, the comprehensive report is freely available for industry professionals for download on the association’s website: www.foodallergycanada.ca

“These guidelines o er Canadian manufacturers a risk-based approach to manage food allergens, with the aim to meet Canadian food regulatory requirements while aligning with the most recent international advice stemming from the WHO/FAO Expert Consultation on food allergen risk assessment methodologies and allergen thresholds,” says Université Laval professor Samuel Godefroy, one of the report’s key researchers.

While it will undoubtedly take time for these guidelines to be widely adopted by the 13,000 or so food and beverage producers across Canada, the early industry feedback sounds promising.

“Food allergy is a serious public health issue and food and beverage manufacturers play a critical role in helping consumers make safe product choices,” says Sharon Mohammed, director of government and industry relations at Maple Leaf Foods. “With the Allergen Management Guidelines, food manufacturers now have an industry informed framework, that provides practical recommendations for all types and sizes of manufacturers.

“Our investment in this initiative will make it easier for food and beverage manufacturers to meet Canadian food safety and allergen labeling requirements, while helping consumers make informed food purchasing decisions.”

Leclerc starts the year with pure intentions and catchy packaging

Some New Year resolutions are harder to keep than others, but for Canadians pledging to eat healthier and to buy more local, venerable Canadian snack producer Leclerc is o ering a perfect solution with its new line of GO PURE Oatmeal Bars.

Baked and packaged at the company’s state-of-the-art facility in Cornwall, Ont., the

soft-baked bars are made with 100-percent Canadian oats and are available in three tasty flavors including Chocolate Chip, Carrot Cake and Brownies

According to Leclerc, “Oats are high in fiber and contains more protein.

“In addition to being naturally antioxidant, they also contain good fats and a multitude of micronutrients.

“Oats are the choice of active people because of their high-quality carbohydrates content,” Leclerc states. “With oats, you get a fuel that provides long-lasting energy.

Retailing in attractive 175-gram folding cartons packed with five individually wrapped single-serve bars—all incorporating lively brand graphics created by the Montreal o ce of Pigeon Brands—the peanut-free GO

Chapman’s iconic boxed ice cream gets a new look

With its half-a-century history, the Chapman’s brand of two-liter boxed ice cream has been lovingly enjoyed by many generations of Canadians.

Produced in Markdale, Ont., since 1973, the brand’s coast-to-coast popularity has enabled the family-owned Chapman’s to grow into Canada’s largest independent ice cream producer—a feat that has earned this long-time freezer staple a fresh new look with high-end packaging graphics that incorporate the image of the company’s original creamery into the packaging design.

Now branded under the new Markdale Creamery label, the renamed product line is available in 15 distinct flavor varieties, according to Chapman’s, with all the original recipes left untouched.

“With this initiative we proudly celebrate our history and heritage,” says Chapman’s chief operating o cer Ashley Chapman.

“Community is an important pillar of the Chapman’s brand, and the new product line name pays homage to our small village of Markdale,” she says, noting the updated product line will also continue to be allergy-friendly, along with gluten-free, peanut-free, nut-free, and the new egg-free designation.

To get the new packaging ready for early 2023 rollout, Chapman’s worked closely with the Toronto-based Odessey Business Products Inc. and Reset Branding of Burlington, Ont., to project the desired brand image on new packaging.

“The challenge was to make the packaging still recognizable for loyal customers, while giving it a serious uplift,” says Chapman’s marketing manager Lesya Chapman.

“The design came together quite fast, and everyone quickly felt in love with the new look,” she adds. “The transition was quite rapid: it took was less than a year between the original idea and new packaging getting into stores.”

Ontario quail eggs farmer makes a clear PCR choice for its new retail packaging

Long lauded for their high nutritional value, creamy taste and texture, and cooking versatility, quail eggs are quickly gaining long-overdue mainstream acceptance across North America thanks to companies like Spring Creek Quail Farms

Located in Saint Anns, Ont., Spring Creek is a family-owned farm on a mission to spice up the Canadians’ egg life with a real alternative by tapping into the growing popularity of quail eggs—beloved by foodies for their looks and taste; health-conscious consumers for their nutritional benefits; and many ethnic consumers excited to find this familiar ingredient at their local store.

To build on that momentum, Spring Creek has recently teamed up with good natured Products Inc., Vancouver-based manufacturer of plant-based packaging materials, to relaunch its eggs in new good natured Bio-Pet packaging to ensure safe delivery of its naturally-raised quail eggs to major grocery store chains across Canada and the U.S., including Costco, Loblaws, Sobeys and Kroger

According to good natured Products, its Bio-PET packaging is made from 30-percent plant-based materials instead of petroleum— meeting Spring Creek’s requirements for recyclability across North America, while also reducing its reliance on fossil fuels.

Operating as a ‘zero-waste’ farm, Spring Creek is dedicated to environmental stewardship through its full supply chain and has committed to 100-percent recyclable packaging and shipping materials, according to the company.

In addition to being fully recyclable, Spring Creek egg packaging must adhere to strict requirements to enable product visibility and ventilation, comply with food safety, and be durable enough to withstand shipping and

ensure on-shelf safety.

According to Spring Creek, lack of product visibility and poor leak and crush resistance are key contributors to egg breakage and food waste during transport, as well as on store shelves.

Moreover, consumers often open up the traditional foam or fiber cartons to inspect eggs prior to purchasing—resulting in safety risks or messy accidents at the store-shelf level.

By utilizing transparent good natured Bio-PET egg containers, grocery customers are able to clearly see the quail eggs at a glance, largely eliminating the need to open up packaging before purchase.

“We believe a business shouldn’t have to compromise great design, product enhancement and durability in the search for environmentally friendly packaging,” says Spring Creek owner and chief executive o cer Aaron Oosterho .

“It’s in our DNA to match our packaging choices with our zero-waste, vertically integrated business practices, and we’re grateful good natured could meet all our requirements,” Oosterho adds.

“The packaging design process with Spring Creek enabled us to fully demonstrate our ability to dig deep into a customer’s unique needs, understand their industry and then fine-tune a design and precise material choice that would check all the boxes,” says Paul Antoniadis, chief executive o ce of good natured Products.

“Great packaging design is a combination of choosing the right material, engineering a solution that considers the full supply chain and making it a ordable,” Antoniadis states.

“I’m proud of our team who worked diligently on iterations until the perfect form and function was achieved for Spring Creek,” he adds, “and we look forward to continuing to make fresh quail eggs readily available throughout North America.”

Leading Swedish paperboard producer Billerud says it has secured up to US$200 million in financial support from the State of Michigan to proceed with the company’s ambitious expansion into the North American markets, starting with the planned conversion of the Escanaba paper mill into a paperboard

manufacturing facility to produce primary fiber premium paperboards. As part of the agreement, Billerud will be exempted from paying almost all state and local property taxes at the mill, which is located in the newlydesignated Forest Products Processing Renaissance Zone. For its part, Billerud has promised to invest up to US$1 billion into the conversion project—scheduled for completion in the first half of 2023—while supporting hundreds of high-paying jobs and engaging a significant number of local contractors during the construction period. “Billerud’s transformational investment in their Escanaba Mill underscores the strength of our advanced manufacturing workforce and secures a critical win as we continue working to promote long-term, sustainable investments across the state,” says Quentin Messer, chief executive o icer of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s (MEDC) and president and chair of the MSF Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF) board. “Through the steadfast support of our bipartisan legislative partners, the Whitmer-Gilchrist Administration, the men and women

BETTER WITH BACON

Distributed by BAK Food Equipment, the new Spiral Bacon Smokehouse from Protech is a highly automated production line claimed to be a groundbreaking solution for meat processors who want to take their bacon production capabilities to the highest levels of product quality, improved yields and optimized labor. The system features a linear combination of integrated technologies that transform bacon from raw pork belly into a perfectly seasoned, cooked and smoked product—from start to finish—delivering inline injection, optional liquid smoke drenching, drying, natural smoking, and freezing of pork bellies that are ready to press and slice. According to Protech, the finished product is consistent and uniform because every piece enters and exits the oven in the same position and at the same temperature, which is monitored and controlled throughout the cooking, smoking and freezing processes. The patent-pending Spiral Bacon Smokehouse is capable of cooking and freezing 8,800 pounds of product per hour, and the fully-integrated system requires no additional accessories or equipment—such as combs, smoke trollies, or smoke stick—while deploying robust CIT (clean-in-place) technology for quick and easy sanitation. Unlike traditional manual bacon processing operations that can require dozens of employees, the Spiral Bacon Smokehouse needs only two people for full operation.

al,and inventory benefits thanks to a unique modular design. When a VZXA actuator is removed for maintenance or changeover, for example, the stem, seat and seal stay inside the valve body to allow the process system to remain pressurized. In applications containing hazardous materials, those materials reside safely within the system, saving cleaning time and lowering health and safety risks of contamination. Reinstalling the actuator is simply a matter of screwing it into the valve body. The actuator does not have to be pressurized, which eliminates strain on the stem, seat and seal, reducing the risk of damaging the valve seat. The modular design is ideal for valve manifold applications requiring speedy assembly, ease of maintenance and compact size, and the valve family’s standardized design ensures every VZXA actuator is compatible with every valve body in the family—facilitating simplified ordering and inventory management.

The new QuadPro large-bed paper former from BMG employs a patent-pending, continuous forming process developed to provide the highest production output and lowest scrap rate in the industry, according to the company. One significant feature of the QuadPro former is its ability to provide material scoring without cutting blanks while running printed or unprinted paper with automatic continuous decurling and splice detection—enabling easier operation. The system’s automatic splice detection capability also allows it to bypass score and form stations, achieving faster changeovers and less scrap. Moreover, its servo-controlled score depth adjustment allows for easy on-screen adjustments stored in a recipe for recall, as well as on-the-fly adjustments that reduce downtime— helping to achieve consistent, ultra-precise score depth in increments of 0.0005-inch. Other notable benefits of the QuadPro former include its ability to cut and form in place, along with fully-automated product extractions, stacking, counting and conveyance.

The result of the expertise and work of a multidisciplinary team, the innovative design allows for flat shipping, thereby reducing transportation costs and the need for storage space. A mounting jig, designed specifically for both basket formats (two- and three-liter) will also speed up and simplify operations for producers.

“The multiple customization options o er a competitive advantage and will make produce brands stand out on the shelf with high-quality flexographic, lithographic and digital printing options,” according to Cascades.

“This new corrugated basket for fresh fruits and vegetables reiterates our commitment to o er innovative products that meet the highest standards of environmental responsibility,” says Cascades president and chief executive o cer Mario Plourde. “This launch is also in line with the commitment we made in our Sustainability Action Plan to ensure that 100 per cent of our packaging is recyclable, compostable or reusable by 2030.”

Having recently pre-qualified for the How2Recycle program, making it easier for producers to obtain certification, the closed corrugated basket for fresh fruits and vegetables has already made its mark in prestigious food industry competitions.

It was a finalist in the Sustainable Design category for the 2023 PAC Global Awards; for the Prix Innovation en alimentation 2022, awarded by the Conseil de la transformation alimentaire du Québec; and the Grands Prix DUX 2023 in the Eco-Packaging Initiatives category.

befitting of a company that has just been named the 20th most sustainable corporation on the planet, according to the latest Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World list compiled by leading global NGO (non-governmental organization) Corporate Knights, and the first among the 53 companies analyzed in the Containers & Packaging category.

The Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World ranking is the result of a performance analysis of international corporations with more than $1 billion in revenues, based on key performance indicators across four areas—including economy, environment, social impact and governance—with the weighting of these

indicators defined according to each industry.

According to Corporate Knights, Cascades stands out thanks to its high percentage of clean revenue (i.e. from the sale of eco-friendly products), in addition to its sustainable investments; the alignment of its greenhouse gas emission reduction targets with international recommendations; the inclusion of sustainability objectives in the performance evaluations; and gender diversity on its board of directors.

As Plourde notes, this is one of many times that Cascades has been recognized for sustainability over the years, further validating its commitment to outdo itself and always do more for the well-being of communities and the planet.

“The importance of developing a Circular Economy to protect our resources has been at the center of Cascades’ business model for almost 60 years,” Plourde states, noting this is the fourth year in a row that Cascades has made the Global 100 list.

“We have always considered it vital to use as much recycled material as possible in our products, and continually review how we operate in order to be respectful of the environment,” Plourde elaborates.

Says Plourde: “We owe this performance to our employees, who push the envelope and drive positive change every day. It is thanks to them that Cascades is able to continuously reduce its environmental footprint and those of its customers.”

Landmark snack-food manufacturing facility cranks up its cracker production volumes with cutting-edge packaging automation

Editor

With snacking continuing to evolve as a daily eating ritual across the world’s cultures

and geographies—keeping hunger at bay between meals and providing a welcome boost of energy and nutrients— snack-food manufacturing has become an integral part of Canada’s consumer economy, serving a growing domestic market worth an estimated $13 billion annually.

As one of the country’s largest producers of crackers, cookies and other popular snack foods, Toronto-based Mondelēz Canada—part of the Chicago-headquartered multinational Mondelēz International Inc.—puts a high premium on continuous improve -

ment in its production and packaging capabilities to retain and grow its significant share of the fast-growing global market for baked snack-food products. Operating five manufacturing facilities in Canada, the publicly-owned company has invested millions of dollars’ worth of new equipment into its Canadian production assets over the last decade, with particular emphasis on modernizing and expanding its venerable cookie and cracker production site in Toronto’s midtown borough of East York.

Originally opened in 1949, the East York plant has undergone multiple upgrades and expansions over the years under various former owners, but its most recent comprehensive capital upgrade has arguably set a new benchmark standard for successful integration of automated processing and packaging machinery—raising its skillset and eciency levels to the proverbial next level

of world-class manufacturing excellence.

In 2017, the company expanded the existing East York building on Bermondsey Road to a total of 462,000 square feet of production space, while installing multiple new-generation processing and packaging machinery to accommodate a fast-paced, around-the-clock production environment to enable the peanut-free certified facility to produce over 160 million pounds of product annually for the Canadian and U.S. markets.

“Some of the major brands we make here at East York include Oreo, Premium Plus, Ritz, Wheat Thins, Crispers and Peek Freans cookies,” says site engineering manager Annamaria Reda.

“We have over 100 SKU (stock-keeping unit) o erings—comprising di erent flavors and a wide variety of packaging formats—here on-site,” Reda expands.

“We have the capability to produce cookies in trays—directly in overwrap, or overwrapped and cartooned—stand-up pouches, overwrapped slugs in a carton, and bag-in-a-box formats.”

“The product o erings we manufacture at East York bakery are mostly private-label direct-to-customers,” she adds, “with a small volume of portion-packs made for foodservice clients.”

As Reda explains, the East York plant operates a total of eight high-capacity commercial ovens to make its product range, with each of the ovens feeding multiple processing and packaging lines to produce the final products and ready it for shipment to customers.

“Our eight ovens are evenly split between cookie and cracker lines, as they use unique forming equipment for the di erent types of products,” Reda notes.

“We are busy all year with both,” she says, “but one of the heaviest seasons is the lead-up to the fall and winter seasons, when we see higher cracker sales.”

Making the manufacturing processes run smoothly and seamlessly at all times requires a fairly high level of automation to maintain a high level of product quality and consistency, Reda points out, while ensuring robust productivity levels and reduced reliance on manual labor for some of the more repetitive and physically strenuous tasks.

“Automation is important to help us stay competitive and also to be able to o er higher-skilled jobs in the labor market,” Reda states.

“We do have a combination of fully automated lines where we make consistent products,” she notes, “although we also have some manual packaging lines where we either need more flexibility or have lower volumes.”

As Reda relates, the recent building expansion went hand-in-hand with a multiphase installation of a whole new production line for high-speed, high-volume processing and packaging of cracker products, including the bestselling

Premium Plus line of crackers.

Carried out in step with the ongoing building construction and infrastructure installation, the new L30 line comprises some of the most advanced processing and automated packaging equipment available in the market, including multiple primary and secondary packaging machines manufactured by leading global packaging equipment group Syntegon

“The overall goal was to expand the facility to enable the production of various cracker SKUs here at the bakery,” Reda says.

“The project was installed in a separate building,” she notes, “so our other production lines were able to operate normally, and generally were not impacted.

“As with many large projects, it had its challenges,” she acknowledges, “but overall we have been able to learn the new process and equipment very well over the years.

“We are now running the machines at e ciency levels in the high 90s (per cent),” Reda states, “and Syntegon was a great partner in this project by providing support when it was needed to bring us to these operating levels.

“The Syntegon installation is one of our most fully automated lines end-toend,” she states, “and we operate with the best-in-class crew.

“As a full new line, the L30 installation project added over 65 million pounds of additional output from the East York facility,” Reda says, complimenting the outstanding support and customer service provided to the project by Syntegon’s Canadian distributor and packaging line integration experts Charles Downer & Co. Ltd. of Richmond Hill, Ont.

Actively involved in the L30 line installation from start to finish, Charles Downer provided the required equipment for all the product handling, transfer and packaging stages from the

oven—starting with product breakers and spreaders—right to the end-of-line packaging and palletizing.

According to Charles Downer’s president and owner Je Downer, the L30 line boasts one of the largest single-line installations of Syntegon packaging machinery anywhere in Canada, including:

• Six Sigpack FGMT feeders with cross-feeding chains.

Designed for high-speed stacking and portioning of crackers, cookies and other dry, oily and brittle baked goods with a separation knife, the Sigpack

FGMT feeder is a continuous motion-portioning machine that uses two separating swords per lane to allows the product column to advance continuously, rather than intermittently, to produce up to 400 slugs (stacks) of product per minute on each machine.

After the products are baked in the oven, cooled down and fed into the FGMT by vibratory channels, one sword moves into the product flow, while the second sword holds the leading edge of the formed slug.

Once the swords advance the column to the lowering shovel, an overhead counterholder takes control of the leading edge—allowing for the second sword to return and start the next portion— while the counterholder guides the slug into a shovel for lowering the portion into the cross-chain.

After the portion is released and the empty shovel is raised, the next portion is guided in.

The alternating functions of the two swords allow the product to advance in a continuous flow, according to Syntegon, thereby reducing back pressure and product stress.

• Six Sigpack FIL with HCS horizontal slug flow wrappers.

The slugs are transferred from the FGMT by the intelligent infeed named FIL, which uses linear motor technology instead of conventional chains.

The main advantage is the extremely gentle handling of the transfer, which is nevertheless still performed at high speeds.

Once transferred to the wrapper, the FIL carries the slugs into the folding box of the HCS wrapper. the slug streams go gently from cross chain unit right into FIL and HCS folding box.

The FIL infeed also acts like a small bu er, which stabilizes the wrapping speed for a highly e cient and reliable system.

The FIL/HSC also allow for very quick changeovers: within 10 minutes from long to short slugs.

The HCS is compatible with a wide range of heat- or cold-sealable monolayer or laminated film structures at speeds up to 400 packs per minute.

Capable of producing longitudinally or cross-crimped end fins with straight, zig-zag or clip cut-o , the machine folds and shapes the film like a hose to wrap around the product, which is then longitudinally and transversely sealed.

O ering a variety of optional features—including print code, carton insert, label or coupon, tear strip, tear notches and other easy-opening features—the machine’s automatic film splicing enables fast and easy film reel changeovers.

• Six Sigpack TTM top-load carton-

ers. Designed for 24/7 production, the Sigpack TTM integrated topload cartoning platform delivers high-speed carton forming, loading and closing many types of cartons—including triseal closure, open tray, tray and hood, or tuck-in lid—at speed of up to 150 cartons per minute.

Requiring only one operator to handle all operations via a touchscreen HMI (human-machine interface) terminal,

the Sigpack TTM can handle both solid paperboard and corrugated containerboard, as it automatically removes carton blanks from the loader, erects the cartons, loads them with the grouped product, closes the filled cartons, and passes the finished cartons on to the outfeed belt.

Incorporating a product infeed conveyor, a driven blank magazine, threeaxis robots, controls and drives from Rockwell Automation , and an inte -

grated hot-melt adhesive applicating system, the high-performance machine can handle a broad range of carton sizes, while facilitating remarkably quick and easy changeovers.

In addition to the Syntegon primary and secondary equipment integrated into the L30 line, three Zambelli tray-packing and shrinkwrapping machines, as well as several Euroimpianti robotic palletizers, corner post applicators and RGVs (rail-guided vehicles) at

the end of the line.

“They have expanded the palletizing system twice now in order to handle the entire facility with 10 robotic palletizing systems,” says Downer.

As Reda comments, “Our L30 Syntegon line has a single oven splitting into six packaging legs, which is why we have six full sets of the FGMT, FILHCS and TTM units.

“These feed into the three Zambelli units and four Euroimpianti palletizing robots, which are shared with another line,” she adds.

“It’s very important that all six legs run consistently with little downtime,” Reda points out, “as it would be ine cient to

stop the oven process should one packaging leg stop producing.”

So far, all the Syntegon equipment has worked as well as promised, according to Reda.

In fact, the outstanding performance delivered by Syntegon machinery on the L30 line has enticed the East York plant to invest in yet another fully-automatic Syntegon secondary packaging system— an Elematic case-packer—on another one of the facility’s production lines.

“We have enjoyed good support from the Syntegon team,” Reda states.

“As it occurs in every project, there were some challenges, but overall we’ve achieved good performance results quickly after start-up.

“The service from Syntegon has also been very reliable; their team is highly responsive, and we have a local representative that can support on-site when necessary,” she sates.

As for Charles Downer’s contribution, “We found Charles Downer & Co. to be very knowledgeable on equipment capabilities and new technology o erings,” Reda states.

“They supported the project from end to end, including ideation of equipment selection and layouts, to ensuring we have the right support for the installation

and commissioning phases.”

Reda says Mondel ē z Canada takes pride in sourcing as much of its raw materials and packaging from Canadian suppliers as possible, and working with Canadian packaging automation experts like Charles Downer is a valid reflection of that local sourcing mindset.

According to Reda, the East York’s large-scale investment in packaging automation played a key role in enabling facility to carry on largely “business as usual” even during the peak months of the COVID-19 pandemic, when demand for foods like crackers and cookies actually surged above normal levels.

“The food industry is a very competitive business,” she says, “and our key competitive strength is our team’s ability to react and lead through challenges like that to ensure that products that our consumers love are always available on the shelf.

“Having the right technology in place to ensure that shelf presence is a big part of that competence,” she states.

“As a business, we are always working towards giving people a wide range of high-quality snacks so they can make great informed choices,” Reda concludes.

“It’s about keeping true to our existing brands that our consumers know and love, improving the sustainability of their production, and also o ering new snack options that people truly love and feel good about.”

DESTINY CALLING

Canadian inline label coating and converting machinery manufacturer leverages production excellence and technological expertise to redefine the industry’s value chain dynamics

Self-su ciency is a much sought-after core competence for companies in virtually any business field, and for Montreal-based ETI Converting Equipment , being a master of its own destiny has been a driving force behind the company’s success in the global markets for inline label printing, coating and converting machinery.

Long before disruption became the trendy new buzzword and euphemism for game-changing innovation, company founder Francois Bayzelon had already embarked on a bold journey to shake up the existing label manufacturing supply chain models by helping label printers and converters take complete ownership and control of all their production needs in-

house with innovative, leading-edge machinery distinguished by high levels of automation and technological excellence.

After arriving to Canada from France with a degree in mechanical engineering and a strong entrepreneurial spirit, Bayzelon proceeded to put his talents to use by founding Aquaflex in 1980.

Specializing in flexographic printing presses, the company is credited with revolutionizing the printing industry by launching the concept of quick-change cassette system, while becoming renowned for the quality and a ordability of its equipment.

After selling Aquaflex years later, Bayzelon initiated a new project guided by the vision of enabling label printers to manufacture their self-adhesive labels from scratch, than merely decorate them after receiving the label stock from their

suppliers—essentially eliminating the middleman from the equation.

To realize his game-changing vision, Bayzelon joined forces with an engineering firm IMAC to launch Equipements de Transformation IMAC (E.T.I.) Inc. in 2000.

The Longueuil, Que.-based company is now headed by the founder’s son Maxime Bayzelon, the firm’s principal shareholder, in partnership with three other co-owners.

A holder of a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, Maxime joined ETI in 2007 to work in a variety of engineering, manufacturing, product development and market development roles, before becom-

ing company president in 2012.

In 2017, the company moved to its new current location in Longueuil, Que., on the outskirts of Montreal, to accommodate its growing business and to integrate its machining and manufacturing functions under one roof.

Employing 85 people, the rebuilt plant houses all of the company’s departments, including the machining workshop, assembly, engineering, sales and marketing, project management and administration.

This centralized mode of operation allows the company to retain full control of the manufacturing process to produce high-quality inline printing, coating and converting equipment for label producers around the world, building its systems from scratch to match the customers’ exact specifications and applications.

“As a pioneer in the art of in-house coating, our expertise lies in creating specialized equipment for self-adhesive label printing, coating and converting that delivers a unique competitive edge through technical advantages, environmental sustainability, material cost-savings, linerless label capabilities, creativity and flexibility,”

says Maxime Bayzelon.

“Our equipment is modular, flexible and scalable,” Bayzelon points out, “and our machines are always configured according to our clients’ specific needs, which may include printing, silicone coating, adhesive coating/laminating, die cutting, and/or other converting processes.”

Having sold over 200 machines since its inception, with installations in over 40 countries, ETI enjoys a well-earned reputation as a pioneering trailblazer in many aspects of the label and narrow-web converting businesses, according to Bayzelon.

“ETI was the first to introduce the

concept of inline coating for narrow-web converting,” says Bayzelon, citing other notable patented technological innovations that include:

• Pellicut die-cutting station to cut on very thin liners ;

• Cold slot-die coating station for water-based acrylic adhesive application;

• Pattern hotmelt roll coating station for adhesive application in any shape and size, with capability to produce striped coating at very low coat weights. Says Bayzelon: “ETI has always been able to o er innovative solutions to its

customers and has been recognized for its audacity and ability to undertake special projects that sometimes had a high level of complexity.

“We have sold to all major label printers around the world,” says Bayzelon, citing the company’s stalwart product portfolio o ering label producers powerful in-house converting capabilities, including:

• The Cohesio brand of narrow-web printing, coating and converting equipment for inline label manufacturing;

• The LinerO series of linerless label manufacturing equipment;

• The Acuro line of flexible narrowand mid-web coating and laminating machine for labelstock and tape manufacturing;

• The Metronome range of flexo printing and die-cutting equipment for inline pressure-sensitive adhesive label manufacturing;

• Custom web coating equipment and other custom solutions for made-tomeasure labeling products.

As Bayzelon points out, ETI designs and manufactures all of the production units that go into making its machines, including printing, silicone coating, adhesive coating, and die-cutting stations.

“The fact that the machines are modular and scalable allows our customers to grow their product portfolio over time as needed by adding specific stations to their original machine,” he explains.

With about 95 per cent of its machines exported outside of Canada, “ETI is recognized as the solution that o ers the most ROI (return-on-investment) for clients looking for innovative solutions to produce high volume products at lower costs,” Bayzelon says, “or unique specialty products with technical features that can’t be done otherwise than by coating in-house.

“Our technology represents a real paradigm shift,” says Bayzelon, adding ETI works in close partnership with all its customers to demonstrate many benefits of having more control of their label converting process in-house.

“The technology and solutions we propose create a significant change in their operations: like a shift from purchasing labelstock and printing/converting it, to producing their own self-adhesive materials inline,” he elaborates.

“Once they take the leap and see all the benefits, a large portion of our customers have gone on to purchase subsequent machines,” Bayzelon states.

Built with multiple inline operations, ETI machines require skillful integration of various powerful process and motion control technologies and automation technologies to keep these interconnected systems perform with unfailing reliability, precision and accuracy.

To ensure these requirements are met, ETI has leveraged new control and automation technologies from the leading in-

dustrial automation supplier Bosch Rexroth Canada to maximize its machines’ performance and reliability.

“We started to do business with Bosch Rexroth approximately 15 years ago,” Bayzelon recalls, “when we switched to servomotors for all our machines.

“The support they have provided has greatly helped us in the realization of some clients’ special projects and has contributed to our own R&D,” says Bayzelon, lauding the Bosch Rexroth components and control software for their leading-edge Industry 4.0 capabilities.

Says Bayzelon: “The connectivity that is made possible by their equipment allows us to be even more e cient when it comes to assisting our clients, since we can access data in real time and intervene in a more targeted manner.”

Some of the most critical up-to-date technologies supplied by Bosch Rexroth to ETI in recent years include:

• New-generation MS2N motors, combining high dynamics with compact dimensions and optimal energy e ciency, while o ering more torque and higher speeds. Available with low- and medium-inertia rotors, the MS2N motors serve as data sources in the Industry 4.0 environment to enable fully intelligent automation solutions.

• Planetary gearboxes and AFX-Series high-speed, high-performance gearboxes from Bosch Rexroth’s technology partner Apex Dynamics, Inc.

As Bayzelon concurs, the technological prowess, quality and reliability of

Bosch Rexroth automation devices and software make it a natural fit for a technology-driven company like ETI, which is fully committed to continuous R&D (research-and-development) and product innovation.

“We have a dedicated R&D department,” says Bayzelon, “and innovation has played a large role in ETI’s success.

“The company has always strived to provide a technical edge to its clients through product development and a high level of expertise,” says Bayzelon, citing the company’s on-site Technology Center as compelling proof of the company’s commitment to customer service excellence.

Says Bayzelon: “It’s a one-stop test and trial facility for label industry suppliers, printers and converters) looking to test and/or develop new label constructions; evaluate sample performance at our inhouse state-of-the-art laboratory; determine ways to reduce the cost of manufacturing; benchmark new products and production methods; and access our team of in-house project managers.”

According to Bayzelon, the company’s worldwide installation base is a testament not only to its technological know-how, but also to its overall strategic approach to the label business.

“ETI has clients worldwide, “ he says, “with a concentration of machines sold in the U.S. and in Europe.

“The proximity of the American market certainly plays in our favor,” Bayzelon notes, “but despite the geographical distance between us and some of our clients, we have always made ourselves available to respond to our clients’ needs promptly at all stages of the cycle, no matter where

they are on the globe.

“We have technical experts who travel for installations, training and support,” says Bayzelon, adding these experts also act as e ective ambassadors for the company’s broader mission of enabling label makers take greater control of their processes.

“By removing the need for printers and converters to outsource the market for labelstock, ETI has created a revolutionary alternative that has led to a seismic shift in the value chain,” he states.

“In essence, we’ve developed the equipment and resources to help customers produce the pressure-sensitive material themselves, using their choice of raw materials including paper or filmic substrate, silicone and adhesive.

“ETI allows pressure-sensitive label manufacturers and converters to have more control over their production and more freedom in label creation,” Bayzelon concludes, “resulting in more economy, greater flexibility in the process, and increased profits.”

hile it technically falls into the broad industry category defined as secondary packaging, there is little else that is secondary about the critical primary role that paperboard and folding cartons play in global beverage marketplace and supply chain.

Combining all the sustainability benefits of a renewable resource with the material strength, durability, printability and other key functionalities required to produce convenient, attractive, high-impact consumer multipacks for all kinds of bottled and canned beverages, folding cartons are also an integral strategic branding and merchandising vehicle for beverage producers to build brand awareness and loyalty in the fiercely

Wcompetitive, crowded and hotly contested markets.

Nowadays produced in a continually expanding assortment of shapes, sizes and dimensions with a virtually limitless choice of carrying and opening options, beverage multipacks have rightfully earned their place as a mainstay feature of supermarket shelves across North America and much of the developed world.

Ironically, such ubiquity and availability tend to underscore the enormous investment in the capital-intensive machinery, facilities and human talent required to produce this invaluable everyday packaging in su cient quantities to help keep beverage producers on top of their game.

Operating at its current location in Ajax, Ont., since 1966, the WestRock paper converting plant is a veritable showcase of the sheer grand scale of the heavy-duty production and converting

equipment required to turn massive rolls of virgin craft paperboard into fully finished retails cartons ready for shipment to the customer’s beverage packaging lines—often within a day.

Today operating as part of the Atlanta, Ga.-headquartered WestRock Corporation—formed through a landmark 2015 merger of papermaking giants MeadWestvaco Corporation and RockTenn Company—the 300,000-squarefoot Ajax facility is a busy 24/7 operation running flat out throughout the year to produce more than 500 million beverage carrier cartons annually for leading North American beverage brand-owners and co-packers.

Currently employing 180 hourly work-

ers and 29 salaried sta , the Ajax facility is an important strategic asset in the vast global manufacturing and forest management corporate network managed by its vertically integrated parent company that ranks as one of the world’s five largest paper and paperboard producers.

According to Ajax general manager Doug McMillan, operating as an integral part of WestRock has breathed new life and vibrancy into the sprawling production facility, which remains one of the most important and respected industrial employers in this fast-growing community of just over 120,000 residents.

Having recently completed a 90,000-square-foot expansion of the plant’s warehousing space to centralize its

inventory and distribution activities onsite, the Ajax facility has greatly benefitted from the large-scale capital investment upgrades and modernization projects carried out at the facility both by its current and former owners.

As McMillan related to the Canadian Packaging magazine during a recent visit to the highly automated operation a few weeks ago, the plant’s strategic location and proximity to major markets— along with its dedicated and highly experienced workforce—have been instrumental in attracting large-scale capital investment to make it a worldclass paperboard converter.

“Our access to investment capital has been very good in the seven years of being a WestRock business,” McMillan states.

“These are really exciting times for this facility.”

Expertly laid out around the expansive plant floor for optimal product transfer and packaging, the facility’s formidable arsenal of high-quality converting equipment is perfectly complemented with two fully-automatic quadruple palletizing systems, including an integrated six-pallet dispenser, and a fully-automatic stretchwrapper.

“It’s a pretty slick set-up,” says McMillan, praising the palletizers’ rugged flexibility, high cycle speeds and intelligent controls.

“At any given time,” he says, “we can palletize eight di erent configurations, while using up to six di erent sizes of pallets.

The two quadruple palletizing systems operate as independent units, so that if there is any downtime for one of them, the whole system just keeps going without any interruption to the process.

“This operational flexibility also allows us to add slip sheets, cap sheets, moisture barriers or whatever else the customer requires in one smooth inline pass,” McMillan states.

With over 100 active dies ready for action any day of the week, the Ajax plant’s extensive product portfolio includes glass bottle multipacks from six to 24 containers; can cartons from four up to 48 cans; and basket package multipack carriers accommodating from four to 12 containers—suiting virtually every popular multipack format used to retail all sorts of beverages across Canada.

The lion’s share of multipack cartons manufactured by WestRock in Ajax are made exclusively from the high-quality coated virgin kraft paper—produced in various thicknesses and basis weights (calipers) by a WestRock paper mill in Mahrt, Ala.—which is shipped to Ajax by rail in giant 79-inch-diameter rolls that are loaded whole right onto the plant’s inline printing presses by clamp trucks to begin the conversion process that can reach speeds of up to 1,000 linear feet per minute.

Being designated as an essential business during the COVID-19 lockdowns, the Ajax facility didn’t miss a beat on the production floor, according to McMillan, with most of its workforce also getting through the prolonged pandemic largely unscathed—thanks to meticulously followed workplace safety, masking, screening, sanitation and social distancing procedures.

“Actually we were busier than usual during COVID because the market demand for multipacks grew on the account of many hospitality businesses and restaurants having to shut down their kegging and fountain lines,” McMillan states.

“We also saw a shift to bigger-sized multipacks like 30- and 48-pack carriers, as consumers changed their purchasing habits during the coronavirus crisis.

“People have switched to larger multiples to limit their potential COVID risk exposure by buying more product with less trips to the store,” he explains, “and we were happy to fill that new market need with the amazing equipment and capabilities we have here in Ajax.”

Having joined the company nearly four decades ago while it was still operating under its early PackageMaster corporate banner, McMillan takes a lot of pride in working for a progressive company with deep demonstrated commitment to the Canadian market.

“About 80 per cent of our output is produced for the Canadian market that we serve coast-to-coast,” McMillan states, “and it’s a great feeling to know that we are making a significant contribution to both the local and the national economy at large by providing a sustainable, low-carbon packaging solution on a substantial commercial scale.”

As McMillan points out, the paper and packaging products made by WestRock contain virgin fiber sourced from responsibly managed forests, and the Ajax plant uses only water-based inks on all three of its printing presses.

The facility has also recently completed a plant-wide conversion to energy-efficient LED lighting, McMillan relates, while also implementing various in-house recycling and other waste-reduction initiatives to reduce its own carbon foot-

print.

“All our clippings and paper scraps are sent back to mills to be used for various recycled content products in other market segments where WestRock operates,” McMillan notes.

As converting production manager Peter Nenke points out, “Our business has always been about making and converting paper, which means we’ve been focusing on sustainability long before sustainability gained momentum as a critical aspect of business.

“And WestRock’s strong investment in the Ajax facility has allowed us to bring in new-generation technologies with more energy-e cient heating systems and other new functionalities to help us keep improving our environmental profile.”

To keep this formidable arsenal of heavy-duty machinery running at optimal e ciencies at all times, the Ajax plant’s 19-person maintenance crew, expertly led by maintenance manager Kurt Basler, keeps a close regular watch on machine performance for all operating equipment through continuous diagnos-

tics, testing, troubleshooting and other preventive maintenance techniques.

“This is a very high-skill team made up of licensed mechanical and electrical journeymen,” Basler states.

“I think our high level of technical expertise is one of our core competencies,” says Basler, adding the plant also houses an on-site machine shop to handle most of the machine repairs in-house.

“We try to do all repairs without sending items out unless they are just physically too big for what we can handle here at the plant,” he says.

“Other than that, we can do all the machining, welding, assembly or whatever else need to be done in-house.

“Machine uptime is always a key priority.”

As McMillan points out, the plant’s large investment in robotics and other automated technology has not only boosted the operation’s productivity lev-

els but has also contributed to a safer work environment by eliminating many repetitive and physically demanding manual jobs and tasks that could result in workplace injury or burnout fatigue.

“Our safety record has been good for many years,” McMillan proclaims, “and it’s no coincidence that it has gone handin-hand with acquiring all this new technology.

“We have done a good job in automating a lot of strenuous work areas,” he says, “and we’re not finished yet.”

As McMillan acknowledges, putting in a 12-hour shift, four days-a-week at a fast-paced production facility is not a walk in the park for workers of any age, so any investment in safety is a direct investment in its human capital.

According to McMillan, having such a committed and talented workforce played an important role in enabling the plant to pass its first SQF (Safe Quality Food)

certification audit a few weeks ago.

Passing the rigorous third-party audit at its first attempt has put the Ajax plant on a firm path to obtaining the coveted food-contact safety accreditation that would allow it to expand its production repertoire with folding cartons for packaged foods across various product categories and segments.

“Naturally, we are very excited about the new opportunities this could bring to our business,” McMillan states, adding the plant has all the necessary fundamentals in place to diversify into food packaging.

“People tend to think of a multipack carton as just another box,” he remarks, “but it is so much more than that.

“Our carriers are in fact packaging solutions that come in a broad variety of size and design configurations, with all kinds of value-added features like embossing, Braille, UV coating and raised text, to meet customer specifications,” he says.

“Moreover, we can help our customers with their special product promotions by being able to insert coupons, leaflets, small prizes, and all sorts of marketing items right inside the cartons before we ship it to them.”

Says McMillan: “As a fully vertically integrated company, WestRock stands out in the paper packaging world by operating as a complete solutions provider, and that’s exactly how we approach our business here at Ajax—providing our customers with the best packaging solution to help them grow their business.”

CASCADING EFFECTS

Founded in 1964, Quebecbased forest products group Cascades Inc. is widely respected for providing sustainable, innovative and value-added solutions for many diverse packaging, hygiene and recovery needs.

The company employs approximately 10,000 employees who work in almost 80 facilities in North America.

With a well-defined mission to improve the well-being of people, communities and the planet by providing sustainable and innovative solutions that create value, Cascades specializes in producing, converting and marketing packaging and tissue products that are composed mainly of recycled fibres, including:

• Packaging Solutions. Eco-friendly packaging solutions from Cascades reflect the trends and challenges of the market.

• Hygiene and Tissue Solutions , designed for residential, commercial or professional needs, and made primarily with recycled papers. .

• Fiber-based materials, comprising many e ective, eco-friendly packaging solutions are made with linerboard and corrugated medium (fluting paper), and speciality paper is made from recycled fibers.

In 2022, for the third consecutive year, Cascades has been recognized as one of the world’s 100 most sustainable corporations, according to the prestigious Global 100 index produced by leading global NGO (non-governmental organization) Corporate Knights

At Cascades, they believe there is always

a better way of doing things: a better way to package and protect products; a better way to manage residual materials; and a better way to create a cleaner world.

Hence, Cascades believes in working with tried and tested eco-friendly equipment of the highest quality that can conserve energy and resources in terms of materials, people, time and money.

Recently, Cascades was looking for an e cient solution to address motor control, power management and quality control challenges at some of its plants.

The objective of this project was to succeed in maximizing the space in each of the panels with the use of a Motor Control Centre (MCC) solution.

Whereas previous projects used wall-

mounted enclosures—with space at the bottom of the wall largely wasted—there was a constant need for more wall space in the existing electrical rooms.

In contrast, using the Motor Control Panel (MCP) solution maximizes the wall space that is ao often lacking in factories.

Cascades had a long-standing relationship with Jacmar, a leading industrial automation and controls distributor in Quebec, and one of Rittal’s oldest partners in Canada.

Having been using Rittal’s marketleading enclosures for the past 20 years, Cascades knows well that what sets Rittal apart from other industrial automation suppliers is their capacity to meet specific client needs reliably and quickly with scalable industrial automation solutions necessary to remain competitive and agile in a quickly changing marketplace.

Not only could Rittal provide marketleading enclosure solutions, but their

team could also use the EPLAN power engineering and configuration to design the solution from start to finish. Cascades had worked on projects involving drives which are sometimes integrated into MCCs or wall-mounted enclosures.

For a recent major project, the panel and MCC solutions were not viable from a space availability point of view, so Cascades were ready to consider Rittal’s MCP solutio,n which saved more than 30 per cent of space in the electrical rooms.

Moreover, sourcing Rittal’s MCP solution from a local distributor like Jacmar provided Cascades with access to local stock, faster delivery, and convenient part replacement.

Jacmar carried out panel mounting simulations with the most frequent drive in the project using EPLAN engineering software, which allowed them to confirm that two 25 HP drives could be assembled in an MCP solution, rather than just one drive that could be installed in the MCC

Arcflash solution.

This made it possible to reduce the number of panels required for the project by half, thus obtaining savings in terms of space and costs.

Based on Rittal’s proven architecture of their free-standing TS 8 enclosure system, Rittal’s Motor Control Panel (MCP) with EPLAN’s design software, was the perfect solution to address Cascades’ motor control, power management and quality control challenges with mutiple benefits including:

• speed of design and build,

• customization from standard parts,

• flexibility of design,

• cost-e ective integrated solution,

• easy configuration with Rittal Power Engineering,

• CSA/UL-certified for use in Canada,

• Plug-and-play standard parts,

• Configurable at all stages.

Canadian specifiers and contractors, the modular design enables easy configuration and short delivery times.

Another factor that made it e cient for Cascades and Rittal to work together was the fact that they received direct support from the manufacturer at all stages of the build.

Rittal was able to build the enclosure, providing proof of concept along with CAD drawings, in their state-of-the-art Modification Centre in Ontario, so shipping to Quebec was not an issue at all, saving valuable transportation costs.

For large engineered industrial processes at Cascades, power distribution can be very complex.

Using a control panel is an e cient solution to include all the VFD and motor components required.

Each motor was connected separately to a VFD, with the starter individually mounted or contained in a larger control panel.

Rittal’s MCP o ered Cascades the best of both worlds: the e cient component organization of a control panel, as well as for optimal distribution of current and decreased resistance.

Cascades was pleasantly surprised that it took just about a week for the power engineering, and about two months to build the solution from start to finish.

When translated into costs and ROI, the benefits were immediately apparent Cascades’ first project with Rittal, has made it possible to optimize the space in the electrical rooms.

Another major project is in design and

the use of the MCP solution would make it possible to add more new motors in the existing electrical room.

As Cascades technical advisor Marc Payeur recalls, “Rittal’s MCP solution checked o all the boxes for Cascades: the space and energy savings was in keeping with our search for greener, environmentally-friendly solutions, and we also appreciated the overall e ciency of this modular, well-organized and integrated solution.”

André Bousette, president of Rittal Systems Ltd. , adds: “The major advantage of Rittal’s MCP solution is the huge savings in engineering, lead, preparation and assembly time, as well as most importantly, the ability to configure the solution even after the order.

“We are pleased to have been able to deliver this solution to Cascades on time and within their budget,” Bousette concludes, “and we are confident that this will provide them with a more e cient way to produce their world-class packaging and recycling products and services.”

Seal The Deal

Fresh frozen foods innovator relies on high-performance vertical packaging machinery to support its trailblazing growth in global markets

Founded in 1988, d’Arta NV is a Belgian familyowned company that has quickly evolved into a notable global player in the development, processing and marketing of fresh frozen products.

Nowadays employing over 900 people at production sites in Belgium, Portugal and the U.K., d’Arta exports its fresh frozen products— vegetables, fruit, herbs, and ready-to-eat side dishes—to more than 100 countries globally.

With equipment reliability and availability always a paramount priority, d’Arta has made extensive use of the vertical packaging machinery manufactured by leading German packaging machine-builder GEA Group over the years to ensure an e cient and robust production process.

“We have been utilizing GEA’s vertical packaging machines for years, and our capacity has increased by at least 50 per cent since we started using these vertical packers,” says company co-founder JeanPierre De Backere.

“Having used the first-, second-, thirdand fourth-generation GEA machines, we are currently working with the fifth generation,” De Backere reveals.

“What I like is that every time small technical improvements are made to the machine, the controls remain virtually unchanged, meaning our sta don’t require continual retraining,” states De Backere. “It is and will always be a GEA machine, which, after an update, is even better-suited to our needs.”

The new GEA Smart Sealing System uses special metal tapes in the sealing area to eliminates the need to replace the previously used Teflon tape on the heated sealing jaws after just a few hours.

According to GEA, this update o ers multiple advantages in terms of maximizing productivity, reducing downtime, lowering the total cost-of-ownership (TCO) and improving package quality.

Over the years, GEA has always priori-

tized ensuring quick film changeovers on its machinery, which is distributed in Canada by Abbey Equipment Solutions of Burlington, Ont.

As De Backere points out, “At GEA, they understand what our challenges and priorities are.

“Our production process must be continuous, as one minute of downtime means a capacity loss of no less than a hundred kilos of product,” he reiterates. “There’s no coming back from that.”

Previously, the heated jaws of the traditional sealing systems on vertical packing machines were commonly protected by Teflon tape to prevent sticking when running PE films.

As a precautionary step, the tape would be replaced at the end of every eight-hour shift, which meant that standby sealing jaws would be used during the changeover after around 40,000 bags.

In contrast, the new system uses metallic strips with a non-stick, PFASfree (Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) coating, which can continuously seal up to one million bags reliably without changing the sealing strips.

The GEA Smart Sealing System is designed for pillow and gusset bags packed with frozen vegetables, fruits, potato products, meat, meat alternatives, fish, and seafood.

GEA has increased the pressure applied by the Smart Sealing System (above) to each seal and reduced the cooling time of the produced seal for each cycle, resulting in faster running speed and a 20-percent increase in machine output.

Though initially developed for use with PE mono materials, the GEA Smart Sealing System can also be used with all widely used laminates, including recyclable material structures such as BOPE, MDOPE, PP-based laminates and paper laminates.

“The robustness of the packaging is also important: we obviously don’t want bags of peas bursting open in the supermarket,” De Backere expands.

“Having performed various tests, we have ascertained that the vertical packer is certainly not the bottleneck in this innovation process.”

According to GEA, the Smart Sealing System provides more reliable sealing of the bag with the incorporated product in seal detection system—eliminating the possibility of open packages while also preventing sealing of the bag when food is detected in the seal area.

Together, GEA and d’Arta always think about ways to work more sustainably.

“In this day and age there is a lot of focus on the climate,” De Backere explains.

“That’s why we are exploring the possibilities of replacing PE film, a widely used packaging material, with a more sustainable alternative.

“We are currently testing a type of packaging made of paper,” he says, “and there are many important questions about whether we can package our products with this material just as quickly and without loss of capacity.

This helps eliminate package leaks and damage to the knife, which cuts the single pouches after closing, by avoiding contact with the product in the seal area.

In trial tests, the knives have also handled up to one million bags successfully without having to be replaced— translating into lower costs and improved productivity.

In addition, GEA has additionally increased the pressure applied by the Smart Sealing System to each seal and has reduced the cooling time of the produced seal for each cycle.

This enhancement resulted is a faster running speed and a 20-percent increase in machine output, according to GEA, while notably improving overall

equipment e ciency (OEE), sealing consistency and packaging quality.

For d’Arta, long service life is a critical performance attribute of GEA vertical packaging machinery.

“The fewer technical problems there are, the more I can concentrate on new challenges within our company,” says De Backere.

“Technology in our industry doesn’t stand still, which is why we are always innovating,” he says, “and GEA fully shares our innovative culture.”

Says De Backere: “At the beginning of my career, the engineers at GEA came up with an interesting question: ‘What can we do to make the machine even more e ective for you?’

“Of course, we are always open to improvements,” De Backere asserts.

“GEA has a strong engineering department, and we always want to stay one step ahead of the game in terms of integrating technical changes that help us move forward.

“If all our suppliers acted this way, we would be very happy all the time,” he concludes. “GEA is very committed to our company,” he says, “and we can always rely on them.”

SWEET AND SIMPLE

Venerable French pastry manufacturer proudly carries on its legacy of culinary excellence with leading-edge packaging automation

Producing a great variety of products and many di erent packaging formats is a challenging combination that still often requires a fair bit of manual labor for many manufacturers.

That’s no longer the case at Madeleines Bijou, a renowned French pastry manufacturer now packing its famed golden-colored madeleinettes and other sweet baked goods with e ortless ease—thanks to an advanced packaging solution from stalwart German packaging machinery manufacturer Gerhard Schubert GmbH

With robot-assisted technology, customized 3D-printed tools and clever packaging design, Schubert’s TLM packing line ensures maximum flexibility for the family business with the highest level of automation.

Modern and playful, inspired by current trends but never losing sight of its heritage is a fitting way to describe the character of Madeleines Bijou, a familyowned business that has been producing its eponymous Madeleines since 1845.

To ensure maximum freshness, the small pastries have been individually packed into flow-packs for decades.

While the Madeleines have become Bijou’s brand ambassador, embodied by

42 CANADIANPACKAGING · January/February 2023 CANADIANPACKAGING.COM AUTOMATE NOW

the ‘Mady’ mascot, the range is continuously growing, along with production volumes.

In 1990, the first automation lines were introduced at the company’s headquarters in what is now the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.

Just nine years later, the site had to be expanded to three times its original size.

Gerhard Schubert accompanied the planning and introduction of automated packaging processes at an early stage.

For over 20 years, many Bijou delicacies have been packaged on equipment from the family-owned machine-builder based in Crailsheim, Germany.

To further increase the e ciency of the site, Jean-Philippe Dubois, president of

Madeleines Bijou, called for the automated filling of a variety of di erent mixed formats and special tin formats with madeleines, small pastries, biscuits and wafer rolls —all individually protected by flow-packs.

“The challenge with this project was to create an automated production line from a hand-packing situation,” recalls Schubert’s sales account manager Christiane Buchstab, who is responsible for sales and customer service for the territory comprising France and Switzerland.

As the project progressed, the requirements and wish-list grew steadily as well.

What initially seemed like simply a matter of automating the filling process became a major endeavor of adding more

and more functions were eventually added in various steps of the process.

After they have been baked at various locations throughout the factory, the madeleines and wafers, pastries and biscuits are collected at a central location.

Unsorted and not yet correctly oriented, the sweet baked goods arrive at the packing line on six di erent conveyor belts, where, after being separated by vibrating conveyors, they are fed via a hopper style bu er system.

Each of the six stations is responsible for one product and has a 2D scanner to check the orientation. If a printed logo on the flow-pack points downwards or the product is upside down, it is brought into the correct orientation with the help of a turning station.

In parallel, on the other side of the packing line, flat carton blanks are taken from a single-lane magazine and erected via a combination of F3 and F2 robots.

Although the cartons have di erent formats, they feature the same base area to simplify product handling.

The packaging also won over Bijou with its clever interior concept, whereby the separate compartments—delivered as flat blanks similar to the carton blanks—are erected and folded robotically. These were jointly developed jointly by Schubert’s packaging development team and Bijou’s carton manufacturer.

“With the help of a single glue point, the compartment is secured within the box,” Buchstab explains.

“This way, the products are neatly separated from each other, and each variant is directly accessible,” explains Buchstab.

The packaging process begins with three cartons are placed onto each Transmodul.

lar or square base—the Transmodul transfer robot leverages its inductive energy supply to seamlessly connect all the individual process steps.

With its inductive energy supply, the transport robot from Schubert seamlessly connects all the individual process steps.

One of the unique feature of Bijou’s

Transmodul is that the units were designed to accommodate 10 different tin formats – with either a round, rectangular or square base.

“This enables us to cover the customer’s entire variety of tins with just one format plate,” Buchstab states.

As she explain, the format changeover between tins and cartons requires a tool change, whereby two employees change format plates and gripping tools and insert the tooling for the compartment as a flat blank into the machine when the baked goods are packed into cartons.

When feeding the tins, a 2D scanner and an F4 robot ensure that they are always correctly oriented on the Transmodul and that the lid remions open before the filling process.

With Schubert’s modular solution, six four-axis pick-and-place robots pick up the products individually from the scanner belt and directly fill the tins or cartons.

The packaging is then glued or sealed, and 3D-printed format parts are used to ensure that the tin lids fit securely by placing the lid onto the tin in an inclined position and then close it.

With the flexible packaging machine, Schubert’s experts not only met Bijou’s expectations, according to Buchstab, but actually exceeded them.

The fact that the two companies were already familiar with each other for a long time also contributed to successful project execution, adds Buchstab.

“The collaboration took place on very familiar footing,” she relates. “The Madeleines Bijou French family business has relied on Schubert’s technology and expertise for many years.,” she notes, “and the company president is a big fan of our Transmodul transport robots.”

Moreover, all components of the TLM system are designed for maximum format variety, Buschtab notes.

“We currently have 12 formats on the line, including two carton formats and 10 tin formats, and d there are virtually no limits to future extensions of the carton and tin formats,” she states.

“Schubert’s highly e cient packaging process automatically ensures that Bijou’s delicacies will always be presented from their most exquisite side.”

How to Select a Capacitive Proximity Sensor

Capacitive proximity sensors detect nearly all materials—both metal and non-metal objects—and can even sense through wood or plastic. This is due to the technology being activated by the dielectric constant of a material. If the target material’s dielectric constant is significantly higher than another material, often wood or plastic, a capacitive sensor can ignore the lower dielectric material and still detect the target material. This unique functionality allows capacitive sensors to detect fill levels of liquids, pellets, and powders through container walls.

Typical markets and applications for capacitive proximity sensors include: plastics (dryers, vacuum systems, hopper level), agriculture (grain silos, automatic feeding systems, irrigation systems), packaging, conveying and food/beverage (level detection in bottles and packages, pallet detection, object presence detection) and the wood industry (sawdust and wood chip level detection, pallet production).

Some key characteristics of capacitive proximity sensors include:

•Maintenance-free and wear-resistant

•Contact or non-contact with the target

• Solid state output for bounce-free switching and long lifetime

•Insensitive to vibrations

•Insensitive to moderate dust and dirt collection

•Waterproof

•Widely resistant to chemicals

There are several factors to consider when selecting the best capacitive proximity sensor for your application. These considerations can be broken down into five categories:

1 DETAILS OF THE DETECTION TARGET

It is critical to identify the physical size of the target and dielectric value of the material to determine the sensing range required.

Target Description: Capacitive sensors are used to detect solid objects or liquid/granulate objects. The size of the target and dielectric value are the most critical features to identify. If the sensor is detecting liquid or granulates, the dielectric value of both the target material and container material are important; please reference the Dielectric Value Chart (see below).

Sensing Distance: The adjustable sensing distance of capacitive sensors typically ranges from 0.5 to 40mm. Several reduction factors apply to capacitive sensing ranges, such as the size of the target, dielectric value of the target material, and mounting and grounding of metal targets.

Speed: Capacitive sensors offer slower switching speeds compared to many photoelectric or inductive proximity sensors. However, capacitive applications typically do not require fast responses. As a rule of thumb, DC (transistor) switching is faster than AC (SCR) switching, and relay switching is the slowest.

DIELECTRIC VALUE CHART (Capacitive sensors can detect anything over 1.2)

MaterialDielectricConstantMaterialDielectric Constant

Operating Temperature Range: The minimum and maximum temperatures the sensor will experience during operation and storage must be considered.

Environmental or Explosion Proof Ratings: Technical standards such as IP and NEMA ratings are now industry standard to provide insight into the conditions a sensor can operate in indoor/outdoor use, presence of dust/debris, and exposure to water. Another environmental consideration is for hazardous materials. Similarly, technical standards from OSHA and the National Fire Protection Association provide industry standard ratings (class, division, group) for operation in hazardous environments.

External Noise Protection: Advanced noise protection will reduce false detections caused by vibration shocks, electrical surges, electrostatic discharge, electrical transients/bursts, wire conducted disturbances, power-frequency magnetic fields, and radiate RF electromagnetic fields.

2 UNDERSTAND THE INTEGRATION REQUIREMENTS

Integration requirements are typically determined by the other components and setup of the application. Often these requirements cannot be changed and therefore are important to understand early in the sensor selection process.

Supply Voltage: Available for use with input supply voltages of AC, DC, or even AC/DC applications.

Sensor Output: Common output options available include Normally Closed (NC) and/or Normally Open (NO), NPN and/or PNP (DC), SCR (AC), MOSFET (AC/DC) output, relay or analog (DC) output, or IO-Link communication.

Sensor Installation: The most common body styles include square or rectangular housings, or smooth or threaded barrel type housings. Some sensors are designed for flush mounting, but others are designed for non-flush mounting, allowing additional sensitivity on the side of the sensing face.

Termination Style: Typically, sensors will only have two connection options to input power and output signal—quick disconnect (M8 or M12) or a cable with flying leads. The quick disconnect options are popular due to faster replacement and easier connectivity troubleshooting.

3 CONSIDER THE OPERATING

4

PLAN FOR THE FUTURE

Some manufacturers offer sensors with IOLink communication, which provides unparalleled capabilities compared to traditional sensors. The user can program the sensor output, implement custom time delays, and use logic functions. These basic benefits reduce inventory and allow immediate, flexible customization to your application using standard sensors.

Beyond that, there are many other capabilities. Data logging—power cycles, operating hours, operating cycles, low temperature, high temperature— provides visibility to potential operational inefficiencies. Customizable alarms, temperature or dust, allow scheduled maintenance to occur before the sensor fails. Functions such as Quality of Run (QoR) give real-time indication of the sensor performance and Quality of Teach (QoT) provides confidence of the quality and repeatability of the sensors’ set points. As digitalization allows data to be transferred into valuable information, all companies are on a journey to implement these “smart” features. Sensor selection is the right time to consider these capabilities.

5 SELECT A REPUTABLE RESOURCE OR SENSOR MANUFACTURER

ENVIRONMENT

The operating environment of a capacitive proximity sensor can greatly narrow the selection options. Exposure to oils, chemicals, washdown conditions, noise, or presence of hazardous materials require specialized sensor capabilities.

Housing Material: Common capacitive sensor body materials are polymers such as ABS, PA, PBT, PP, PTFE, PVC, or metals such as aluminum, brass, nickel-plated brass, or stainless steel. Metal housings are the most durable. Polymers are preferred if there is potential exposure to specific chemicals.

It can be challenging to select the best technology for an application and then choose the best sensor. Partnering with a sensor manufacturer and experienced automation expert, such as Carlo Gavazzi, allows you to leverage their global application experience and sensor knowledge. Support is available by email, phone, video conference, in person, or by using international distribution partners.

Converting Last Mile Sortation from Manual to Automated

Converting Last Mile

Sortation

from Manual to Automated

The problems with manual sortation

Hundreds of employees are still used for manual sortation on the “last mile” of conveyors. This misuses human resources in the current labor shortage, can hinder company growth and pro tability and imposes an inherent safety risk. The automation of these systems using rollerball belt technology allows for better allocation of employees within an organization and optimizes package handling, productivity and throughput. Converting to automation poses a massive opportunity for continuous growth and futureminded thinking.

Choosing the right option

While there are a number of available options, including autonomous mobile robots or pick-and-place systems, the best way to automate this complex sortation task is by using rollerball belts. This technology allows omnidirectional control of packages, even those with irregular shapes. One or two employees manage the introduction of packages at the induction point, and each package’s scanned barcode integrates with the warehouse’s management system and communicates with the rollerball belt that moves the package down the line, dropping it off to the left or right in the appropriate bin. Beyond its high ef ciency, rollerball belts are safe. This detail is of utmost importance with today’s mostly unguarded conveyance systems, where approachability is required and humans work in close proximity to the equipment. Rollerball belting is powered by a safe 24-volt current, has no pinch points and can be stopped by hand without injury. Besides protecting against injury, this also helps eliminate damage to packages.

Building a business case

While it is clearly the most ef cient and safest choice for last mile sortation, rollerball belting is not the least expensive and requires a capital investment. Building a business case to invest in this technology is oftentimes the largest hurdle for operation managers trying to implement rollerball belts into facilities. A common oversight made when trying to build this business case for rollerball belt technology is to only look at the replacement of human costs. Certainly, the reduction in recordable incidents causing injury, reduction in payroll or redeployment of human assets to higher level positions (especially useful in a short labor market) will provide an upfront ROI. But there is also a great deal to say about the increased productivity and throughput afforded by automated last mile sortation that will contribute to ROI in the time following integration of an automated last mile sortation system.

Conclusion

With so many ful llment centers still relying on manual processes to complete last mile sortation of their packages, there is a massive opportunity for automation to improve both productivity and pro t. But to fully take advantage of this opportunity, businesses should be prudent in scoping their systems and selecting the right technologies. Doing so will not only improve throughput, increase safety and allow for a better use of human resources, but can also align a facility for growth and pro tability in the years to come.

Curious about the di erent types of industrial robots?

Cartesian and Gantry Robots

People often think Cartesian and gantry robots are the same or that their names are interchangeable – but that’s not the case. It’s true that they’re both linear robots, but each one falls into its own category because of their axis configurations.

Typically, Cartesians have a base X axis, a cantilevered Y axis, and/or a Z axis that move up and down, in and out, and side to side. Gantries, however, are configured with two base X axes, a supported Y axis that spans across the two X axes, and an optional cantilevered Z axis. Each robot requires a mounting frame, unlike other robot types such as deltas and robotic arms. Because they’re highly configurable, Cartesian and gantry robots are commonly used for numerous industrial applications, including pick and place, sorting, labeling, measurement, inspection automation and repetitive material handling. You can adjust their precision, speed, stroke length and size, and add almost any type of linear actuator with any variety of drive mechanisms. Gantries can handle larger payloads and much longer stroke lengths since the Y axis is supported.

Automating laborious tasks can help save time, increase production and improve the quality of your products. But before giving automation a go, it’s important to know the di erence between the industrial robots on the market. This blog post provides a brief overview of five of them: Cartesian, gantry, delta, articulated and SCARA. You’ll learn how they work, their suitable applications, and how to choose the robot that’s right for you.

Delta Robot

Delta robots, also called parallel or spider robots, consist of three arms and a single base. The base is mounted above the work area while the arms move at high speeds (i.e., 200 picks per minute) with the help of motors on each axis (Process Solutions Inc). However, the delta’s payload capacity is lower than that of other robot types.

Deltas are ideal for light-duty pick-and-place tasks in the food, electronics and pharmaceutical industries.

SCARA

SCARA stands for selective compliance assembly robot arm or selective compliance articulated robot arm. It has three axes (X, Y and Z) for rotating and lateral movements and is ideal for vertical assembly, bio-med and palletizing. However, SCARA’s arm is essentially a lever that limits its reach.

SCARA robots share similar features with robotic arms: they come pre-designed for specific performance ratings, can execute complex tasks, may cost more because of expensive features, take up less space, and weigh less than other types of robots.

Articulated Arms

Articulated robots, or robotic arms, are fixed to a base with a rotating joint. The arms can be designed with up to 10 rotary joints that act as axes but typically only feature 4-6. Each additional axis enables more motion.

Articulated robots are perfect for complex movements, such as reaching under something to grab a part, because they move like human arms. They can also pitch, roll and yaw, which allows for more directional control than SCARA robots (discussed below). Robotic arms are used for arc welding, material handling, assembly, packaging, machine tending and palletizing.

They have a predesigned reach and accuracy ratings that make it easier to establish their repeatability of movement (Richard Vaughn). However, unlike Cartesian and gantry robots, you’re locked into those design features once you buy it. Robotic arms could also cost more because of expensive features like proprietary controllers.

igus® offers gantry, delta, and four and five-axis robots with dry-running components that are maintenance-free and resistant to dirt, dust, and corrosion. Visit igus.ca for more information.

The ECP 12 is characterized by a particularly wide format range. It handles cartons ranging between the minimum size of 30 x 12 x 66 mm and maximum size of 440 x 150 x 250 mm. The cases range in size between 150 x 120 x 105 mm and 600 x 400 x 400 mm. All standard pallet formats (euro pallet, industrial pallet, half-pallet, US pallet) can be loaded by the palletizing module. Palletizing of the cases is carried out by a robot arm with four programmable servo-regulated axes for linear and rotary motion. This permits the configuration of various stacking arrangements.

Tight-Chicken™ is the Future of Poultry Processing

Increase

VFFS system, integrating roll stock with dynamic graphic labeling

Historically, workers laboriously stuffed product into premade bags using handbag loaders with clipping systems for processing and production. Packaged poultry was then transitioned to using vacuum systems to evacuate the air and seal the bags, eliminating the metal clips before the final product was ready for shipment. This protracted process cost producers time, money, and efficiency on an industrial scale.

Enter the revolutionary Tight-Chicken™ system!

This vertical bagging packaging solution stems from a redesign and integration of ULMA’s preexisting Tight-Bag™ system. It creates an airtight, uniform second skin that is leakproof and offers optimized product freshness and visual appeal across the entire supply, distribution, and sales chain.

• Up to 35 packages per minute (FOUR times the average rate executed by manual packaging)

• Leak-proof packaging

• Reduced overall plastic waste

• Optimized visual appeal

• Automatic feeding on elevation conveyor decreases contamination risk

From store shelves to Sunday dinner, optimal poultry packaging will always depend on quality, presentation, and safe product preservation. Today’s consumers seek convenience, value, sustainability, and packaging that stands out. Tight-Chicken™ checks all of those boxes.

Good things o en be er in smaller pa ages / Shannon Kaup

While perusing the diary alternative shelf stable section of my local grocery store recently, I noticed that there are an increasing number of companies o ering non-refrigerated non-dairy options—deftly using innovative and unique packaging to stand out on the shelf. Produced by Elmhurst Milked Direct LLC of Elma, N.Y., the company’s flagship Elmhurst Oat Creamer brand of plant-based, non-dairy cream is packaged in a shapely aseptic 473-ml beverage carton from SIG Combibloc, which replaces the traditional gabletop design with a pyramid-shaped top featuring a twist-o cap, along with tamper-resistant tabs, right at the apex. The Signature brand aseptic carton e ectively protects the contents from light and oxygen permeation to keep the product fresh for over 12 months of unfrigerated shelf-life, with 75 per cent of the carton’s materials being derived from renewable sources. These sustainability attributes are vividly reinforced with the soothing natural colors used for the, eye-pleasing graphics and the basic nutritional information—clearly outlined on the side panel in words and pictures—to deliver on the company’s promise of “Simpler. Better.” contents in the brand logo’s tagline.

Imported here by Toronto-based Mediterranean foods importer Pilaros Inc., the Pilaros Pitted Green brand of pitted green olive cups o er a game-changing way to allow olive-lovers to enjoy olives as health snack option in its own right, rather than just make an occasional appearance as a condiment or as cocktail beverage garnish. Retailing in four-packs held together with an attractive printed paperboard sleeve, the 60-gram clear plastic cups—each one securely topsealed with E-Z peel-o lids—allow

consumers easy viewing of the contents of each cup for full transparency and reassurance about the quality of these highend olives imported from Greece. Whether you are packing these in a lunch-box or using them as a single-serve side-dish, a salad ingredient or as a charcuterie addon, the individualized small packs allow you to ensure the unused portions swill remain fresh until you need them.

For anyone who has had a package of gum fall apart in their bag—leaving them with inedible, dirty gum and a messy bag—the new 35-pack from 5 Gum is a great new packaging solution. Reminiscent of an ‘old school cassette’ tape, the flip-top plastic container hold s35 pieces of gum safe and fresh for when you need it, securely clicking open and closed to keep the contents safe with minimal effort. Overwrapped in a thin layer of plastic film containing all the labeling and nutritional info, the sturdy container is both reusable and recyclable, which I hope makes up for the product’s departure from paper-based packaging.

Produced by Nunn & Company of Seattle, Wa., the Nunn Sport Hydration Tabs are a clever solid formulation of electrolytes developed to help fitness bu s and other regular folks take their hydration anywhere without lugging li-

quids around. Easy to slip inside a gym bag, the small, slender tube capably protects the dissolvable tablets from being crushed. Containing 20 tabs, the rigid-plastic tube features an innovative pop-o top closure with a plastic tamper-evident ring, which slides o the bottom of the tube once opened, along with a plastic spring-like internal stopper that prevent breakage when the cylinder is in motion.

At our household, Christmas just does not feel complete without Nestlé’s After Eight mint chocolates in someone’s stocking. These timeless holiday favorites come as both wafers and straws, with the straws packaged in 90-gram round paperboard tubes dressed up with elegant lettering of the brand logo and a classy easy-to-read font set against the luscious deep-green background. The color scheme of the tube is consistent with the original box ensuring the same quality and flavors you expect. The nutritional information on the back is the only thing that deviates from the green-and-gold color palette, but the white box does make it much easier to read.
