VERSATILE AND RELIABLE CAPPING TECHNOLOGY

U

NIMAC-GHERRI is the result of the union of two major brands: UNIMAC manufacturer of palletisers and depalletisers and GHERRI

producer of fillers, capping machines, pasteurisers, cleaning machines. The merging of the two companies is part of a precise strategy: extending their production range, proposing complete lines and consolidating their presence all over the world by a synergic exploitation of their distributing channels. UNIMAC-GHERRI, capping machines combine simple use and maintenance with versatility and reliability. The range consists of three models with speeds from 3000 to 48000 cph (the speeds refer to caps type RTO with 38mm diameter). They can close glass jars and bottles with metal caps type Regular, Medium, Deep Twist-off, Pry-Twist, Pry-Off with diameters ranging from 27 to 110mm. Capping is effected in a saturated steam chamber with high vacuum level inside the container. The vacuum value is constant. The format change-over is quick and requires only a few adjustments. The screwing strength is constant in any working conditions. The machine hygiene is guaranteed by its high resistance to corrosion and easy cleaning and maintenance. The capping machines are equipped with various models of magnetic cap feeders to be installed directly on the machine or on the floor. The model GG900 can be positioned even far from the capping machine with a significant noise reduction.

NEW PRESSURE REDUCING VALVE HELPS MINIMIZING POWER CONSUMPTION AND IMPROVING ENERGY EFFICIENCY OF HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS FOR WIND TURBINES

D

iversified industrial manufacturer Eaton today introduced a pressure reducing valve specifically designed for wind energy applications. The

additional function of the 1 PDC5 pressure reducing valve is its ability to keep the pressure of an accu-

mulator stored for a long period of time without any significant leakage. Its performance characteristics help improve the energy efficiency of the wind turbine’s hydraulic system. By reducing the number of times that the power pack has to start in order to maintain the pressure in the accumulator, the 1 PDC5 valve helps keep the power consumption of the hydraulic system of the wind turbi-

Knowing that multihead weighing could transform this situation, Starke Ayres looked into the available options and chose an Ishida CCW-M-214W-S/005SS. Known as the ‘Lilliput’ because of its small size (it has a 650mm x 650mm footprint and 50cc (0.05 litre) hoppers), it is designed to handle very small target weights with great accuracy and speed. The Ishida Lilliput at Starke Ayres has brought giveaway down to just 2%, a reduction of 60%. This means that for every 35 packs or so, a given batch of seed will yield one extra pack. Automatic weighing on the Ishida achieves this while practically eliminating the possibility of any underweight packs

ing could never accomplish with such a low level of

reaching the grower, something that manual weigh-

giveaway. Seed is delivered to the top of the Ishida using a vacuum system. It passes through the weigher driven by gravity with the assistance of a powerful vibratory system. To prevent air currents from interfering with the process, the entire machine is enclosed in a transparent case. At the outlet of the discharge chute of the Ishida, weighed product falls into a bagmaker. The filled and sealed bags are bundled and palleted. With manual weighing, the packing process ran at between 15 and 20 packs per minute. The Ishida has increased this by well over 250%, with a typical speed of 52 packs per minute. Apart from the primary benefit of consistent pack weights, the new multihead has speeded up distribution and increased capacity while markedly reducing labour costs. Starke Ayres also believes it benefited from the services surrounding the weigher. “The after sales support and training given by Ishida was outstanding,’’ says Tewie Pretorius, Factory Manager at the company’s vegetable seed packing plant.

SOME THINK OPTIMAL LOAD STABILITY COSTS MORE. WE THINK DIFFERENT. At BEUMER we have a reputation for making things a little different. Take the BEUMER stretch hood® transport packaging system. In a sector where energy-intensive shrink hooding or stretch wrapping is the norm, the stretch hood method represents the state-of-the-art sustainable alternative. The result: better load stability, higher throughput and environmental protection, up to 10 times less film consumption and 90% energy savings. For more information, visit www.beumergroup.com

palletised load units of different heights and contours to eliminate presorting, film changes and unnecessary film consumption. Furthermore, customer surveys showed that the pallet base should be free of film, that the film had to protect the load during transport and against theft, and that it had to be transparent enough to ensure accurate barcode reading. For this reason, shrink hooding was dismissed as a potential packaging solution, as the shrink hood covers the pallet base and becomes milky in appearance due to the shrinking process. In addition, available wrapping technologies fell short of Fiege’s requirements, as traditional stretch wrap-

levels: economics, ecology and social responsibility. The BSI is a points system that records the sustainability of products with regard to these three levels. “Economic performance, market presence, financial chances and risks are known parameters. Our products will only become economically sustainable, when we tailor them and the corresponding production processes to long-term customer use,” says Dr. Beumer. Previously, the total cost of ownership (TCO) was the focus of business activities. Sustainability was defined solely from the ecological perspective. “For us, it is about incorporating ecological social aspects. Therefore, we follow a total value of ownership (TVO) approach. That means we see each product as a whole, not just the costs.”

With the BEUMER Sustainability Index, BEUMER has introduced a standardised validation system. Each of the three areas is evaluated in five categories with up to five points. The sum is entered in the respective circle in a clock-wise direction. The individual values are added up for the total score.

Aiming for the top To evaluate sustainability with the BSI, each of the three levels is divided into five categories. For example, this includes “Efficiency and Effectiveness”, “Service Life”, “Production-Related Resource Consumption” and “Training and Education Standards”. These categories are evaluated with up to five points.

Brew & China Beverage, China´s largest trade show for the beverage and liquid food industry, especially in terms of international participation. From a total of approximately 700 exhibitors, 269 (2010: 225) came from outside China. These international exhibitors, spanning 21 different countries of origin, took up around one third more space this year than at the last CBB in 2010. Overall the number of exhibitors rose from 583 to around 700, and the exhibition space they occupied also grew significantly from 50,000 to 70,000 m².

Barrier for UHT Milk Pouch EVAL™ EVOH adds protective gas barrier properties to UHT milk pouches. 1 mm of EVAL™ has the same barrier as a 10 m wall of LDPE! With such high performance, milk stays fresher longer (without cold chain), reducing waste and saving energy. Light weight and safe in use, packaging materials and costs are reduced without compromising on function. Last but certainly not least, EVAL™ resins are recoverable and recyclable. We may not have created a portable cow, but with EVAL™, the barrier UHT pouch may be the next best thing. Learn how EVAL™ helps optimize packaging at www.eval.eu

A: In today’s competitive food market, to maintain your edge, you need to be sure that everything is spot-on with your product. It’s not enough to know that you have the best vegetables available. The product has to have a good reputation, be available in the right places, priced correctly, and packaged in the right style to ensure that it meets your customers’ needs. At d’Aucy, we’re always keeping an eye on new opportunities for packaging, as changes can have a strong impact on the brand.

wards directed air stream, floating between two mesh belts. Moisture is extracted from this current of air in a cooler. In a second heat exchanger, the air is heated slightly enabling it to absorb water from the lettuce when it passes. Due to the evaporation of the moisture on the surface of the leaf, the lettuce hardly heats up. During the last part of the process, the lettuce is cooled once again, leaving the tunnel at a temperature of approximately 3°C. An external heat pump cools and heats the air.

The extensive conference programme will give industry participants solutions and guidance on the critical issues that will help them more rapidly, efficiently and successfully develop their businesses. The schedule is arranged to allow plenty of time to visit the show floor and to arrange private discussions, all within the same venue. The speaker line-up includes experts from AC Nielsen, Mintel GNPD, PepsiCo International, Rabobank, Euromonitor International, Focus Business Communications, FoodDrinkEurope, Oilworld, and World Wildlife Fund. Speakers will provide detailed insights into the following, key issues for the snacks sector. How are manufacturers responding to the current economic downturn, with specific reference to the impact on product development and innovation? The European market for savoury snacks has performed relatively well during 2012, but will its “recession proof” tag be more challenging to maintain in future? What are the main drivers for the market, including changing consumer behaviour and developing trends? The private label dilemma – how are retailer own brands developing across Europe and what are manufacturers doing to stay one step ahead? How has the export of peanuts to the European market been affected by competition from other crops, biofuels, increased domestic demand and, of course, the weather? What is the risk to future supplies and how is
