L

ove for the perfect form Over 25 years of passion for the perfect form have allowed Errepan to position itself on the Ita¬lian podium of metal pan and equipment manu¬facturers for the confectionery and bread-making industries. Technological evol¬ution, innovation and determina-tion have done the rest to satisfy an increasingly diversified and heterogeneous demand, borne of the international comm¬ercial relationships that the company has developed over the years. Certified quality Errepan has been ISO 9001 certified since 1998 for its system of quality, guar¬anteeing respect for operational

ERREPAN FP 4/13.indd 3

proc¬edures throughout the entire production process. Complementing the company’s certified quality is the quality of its daily inter¬actions with clients, with a part¬icular focus on meeting their needs. International trade shows In addition to Italian events, Errepan has long had a pres¬ence in the biggest international trade shows to reach local mar¬kets and give potent¬ial clients the chance to “see with their own eyes” the reality that excell¬ence in the field currently represents. The products With a broad, comprehensive line of products, Errepan is able to sati¬sfy

every need of the confect¬ionery and bread-making industry. The range of available forms is constantly expanding, motiva¬ted by (among other things) the push from clients, which the marketing department (with inim¬itable support from the technical office) then takes as its own and transforms into perpetually new products and solutions. Pans for croissants, plum cakes, muf¬ins, tarts, the most original soft cakes, but also for pan¬bauletto, pan carré, and sand¬wich bread. The tray with self-carrying paper cup holders is an inter¬esting and innovative solution. It can be used as a pan on the produc¬tion line or as a support in the product proto¬typing phase, with a consequent reduction in cost.

UNICA E LIBRA:THE FUTURE IS NOW UNICA and LIBRA represent an innovative concept of equipment/ service that is collecting a lot of interest through the operators of gelato, patisserie and food industry generally.

T

he technology of powder and liquid dosage, specialty for more than 40 years of the Company LAWER S.p.A in Cossato, Biella – Italy has allowed to apply also in artisanal laboratories the concept of automation and management where the informatics use in the weighing operations of the ingredients guide the operator and eliminates every kind of errors and allow to manage in efficient way the production. UNICA is the completely automatic system that performs all the necessary weighing operations to prepare the recipes with the assurance of the precision. Since now in the artisanal laboratory the dosage of the ingredients was effected only in a manual way; now with UNICA this phase of the preparation can be automatized with quality vantages but in particular in the replicability of the recipes always the same, with total production know-how protection (the own recipes). For this reason UNICA is placed as a confident partner for all that operators that wish to organize their production in an innovative way with a careful look to the product quality and to valorization of the most authentic tradition, besides not lose sight of life quality and production cost reduction. With UNICA you can enjoy the benefits of the automatized technology improving the productions authenticity. UNICA, manufactured in the industrial version, could be employed in the food industry where the need of the precision in micro-dosages is still present in some phases of the production of patisserie, bakery, pasta and in the

LAWER FP 1/14.indd 3

meat and salami production where is required the weighing of the flavoring (recipes with salts and spices). UNICA manages and weighs automatically the ingredients that compose recipes, without requiring the presence of the operator and allows to save time in the laboratory to be spent at the service of the customers. In a fully automatic way, UNICA repeats countless times the error free weighing of the recipes of solid ingredients guaranteeing a constant quality of the final product. UNICA optimizes production time and reduces working hours and costs of the personnel in the laboratory. Using UNICA the personnel could work without knowing and having at their disposal the customized recipes protecting your own production know-how. Accessing to a protected area, it is possible to verify and monitor the daily production, monthly production , production cost, consumption reports and many other useful data that allow to manage with efficiency the production. LIBRA is the semi-automatic version of UNICA that helps and guide in the management of the laboratory and in the preparation phases of the recipes but doesn’t weigh automatically the ingredients. LIBRA guides and attends the operator step by step in all the operations of manual weighing of the ingredients, showing the right ingredients to be weighed and the required quantity, showing when the weighing has reached the correct quantity and the required precision eliminating in this way all the errors and the waste typical of a manual operation. Through the checking with

the management software, LIBRA guarantees the replicability of the recipes increasing in this way the efficiency in the laboratory reducing preparation times. A specific program in LIBRA software is used for the calculation of the mixture balancing allowing a careful evaluation of the final product quality. LIBRA is provided with a software program that manages the laboratory, check every single recipe providing consumption and costs reports of every single ingredient or of complete recipe, allows to constantly verify the effected production and the daily, monthly or in the wanted time period produced quantity. It allows the management of raw materials batches for a perfect data traceability. Thanks to LIBRA, despite not having the automatic weighing operation you could improve efficiency and control and optimize production times in laboratory. With UNICA and LIBRA the technology and informatics are at the service of artisanal and industrial production improving efficiency, traceability and quality allowing a modern management of operation since now manually executed.

SOBATECH CONTINUOUS SYSTEMS FOR DOUGH.

S

obatech is the Dutch specialist in continuous systems for the industrial production of dough. These can be all kinds of dough’s for a wide range of products: cookies & biscuits, toast & sandwich bread, rolls & buns, croissant & pastry, baguette & pizza, etc.

The Sobatech system. The Sobatech continuous system has 3 stages which all operate on the basis of ‘first in – first out’. 1)Dosing. The objective of the Sobatech system is to produce a constant flow of dough of always the same, homogeneous consistency and always the same and correct temperature and dough development In order to reach a constant flow of the right temperature & consistency dough, all ingredients need to be present in always the same and the correct quantities everywhere in the Sobatech mixer/kneader. Therefore, Sobatech has developed a very accurate dosing system, both hardware & software. Special attention was given to maintain a high dosing accuracy during the re-filling of the dosing hoppers. This has resulted in dedicated open-source software (no ‘black box’). The dosing of the solid ingredients is done through the ‘loss-in-weight’ principle. Except during re-filling when there is ‘gain-in-weight’ situation. The Sobatech software controls the feeder screws during normal operation& re-filling of the hoppers in such a way that the dosing accuracy re-

SOBATECH FP 1/14.indd 3

24/02/14 09.38


Special mains very high. For the dosing of the liquid ingredients, high precision pumps and flow meters (mag-flow or coriolis) are used. 2) Mixing. Sobatech handles a 2-phase mixing process. The 1st stage is the socalled homogenization phase. In this phase the dry ingredients pass through a homogenizer, coming from the dosing section. The dry ingredients enter the homogenizer from the top in very fine particles (like a dust) When flowing through the homogenizer, the liquid ingredients are sprayed in very fine particles (like a mist) under a 90째 angle in the flow of dry ingredients. This is done via a medium pressured injection system. Under these conditions a perfect hydration of the flour is reached as well as a homogeneous distribution of the active substances in the mix. Subsequently, the flour absorbs a high quantity of water. Each liquid ingredient uses dedicated nozzles and has a dedicated connection position on the homogenizer. This way a most optimal mix of the dry & liquid ingredients is reached. The result is that a mass of mixed ingredients, representing already approximately 75-85% of the complete mixing cycle, leaves the homogenizer and flows into the mechanical mixer which is the 2nd stage of the mixing process. This 1st stage does not put any energy into the dough. The mechanical mixer consists of 2 counter rotating spiral-type tools, each mounted on a separate axle. The mixing tools handle the mass very gently and provide the movement that completes the mixing phase.

Mixing process.

3) Kneading. From the 2nd stage of mixing the dough is automatically transferred to the kneading section. The kneading tools are mounted on the same axles as the mixing tools. Therefore there movement is combined and the connection between the 2nd mixing stage and the 1st kneading section is seamless. Sobatech has developed specially designed tools that are counter rotating on both axles. Due to the specially designed kneading tools we are able to carry out the kneading process in defined and controlled steps where the kneading intensity is constantly measured and controlled. The excellent kneading characteristics of both machines ensures perfectly controlled energy input into the dough. This means less energy loss in the kneader compared to a batch kneader and therefore a substantial reduction in electricity consumption. A n o t h e r innovation is provided in the form of the scrapers which allow a gentle and controlled output of the dough at the end of the kneading container. The-

se scrapers also have the advantage that the dough is not pressed into the tool bearings. The mixer/kneader housing is equipped with a double jacket. The cooling medium can be cold water or glycol. The control of the double jacket cooling is integrated in the software controls. When the dough temperature is too high and the process water temperature is already at the minimum, the double jacket cooling is automatically activated. Sobatech continuous systems, key features: - Always the same dough consistency & temperature = less waste. - Low dough temperatures without ice = better process control. - Increased weight accuracy per dough piece = cost savings. - Short dough change-over times = high flexibility. - Serious reduction in electricity consumption = lower cost of ownership. - Wash-in-place / clean-in-place systems = easy to operate & maintain. - Very small footprint (5.000 x 900 x 1.500 mm) = easy to fit in.

Make flour since 1832 with art, craft and passion

MOLINO DALLAGIOVANNA

T

he land around Piacenza is brimming with products, ideas and projects that have made this area an economic leader in many sectors. The motto ‘Placentia floret’ was often stamped on coins in the sixteenth century to highlight the flourishing agricultural activity that made this city a leader in contemporary food production. However it was only in the nineteenth century that advanced industrial technologies started to become fundamental to this level of excellence, enabling the more intrepid of its citizens to become businessmen, people who moulded the city’s history. This was the case with the Dallagiovanna family who, thanks to the determination of its great-great grandfather, made full use of the traditions of a land rich in cereals, mills and water. The Molino Dallagiovanna opened in 1832 with the acquisition of a stone mill and it developed over the subsequent one hundred and sixty years thanks to continual modernisation that saw the installation of a first cylinder mill in 1949, followed by a second in 1960, a third in 1975 and finally the ultramodern ‘Bühler’ installed in 2001.

flours or flours specifically studied for the various culinary sectors - confectionary, pizza-making, pasta and bread, begin and end their journey in the Dallagiovanna laboratories: the one of research and analysis, where the best blends between grains are studied and the one of White Art, where the protagonist is the end product, created by the knowing hands of important Masters or tried and retried by the students of the Courses and the themed workshops organised by the Molino, also in collaboration with the principal training institutions. This story continues down to the present day, across two centuries of radical transformation and a progressive increase in production due to a high level of computerisation and the constant commitment of Pierluigi, Sergio and Andrea. Today the business founded by Guido, Renzo and Vittorio Dallagiovanna offers over 50 blends, approved by international quality certifications and processed with the best production methods of every era. In line with technological advancement, production combines the right balance between tradition, innovation and respect for the environment.

OUR SPECIAL FLOURS - Classics Everything is special in Dallagiovanna’s flours: intuition in choosing the most suitable wheats, methods of analysis and research, best tradition processes and the most avant-guard machinery. Last but not least there are the Masters of the White Art Laboratory, important professionals and teachers in the leading schools in Europe, whom with their experience are fundamental for the continuous improvement of production.

THE SPECIAL FLOURS: 100% nature, 100% high quality Our wheat comes exclusively from the EU, USA and Canada, and the majority is from Piacenza”KM. 0”. We also require a wheat passport from our suppliers, stating the origin and any treatments the grains were subjected to. The grains are stored naturally, with cool air and without pesticides. We are the only mill to wash grain using potable water, and once the kernel is adequately dampened, milling is even and slow, without ever damaging the starches and protein. Finally, we implement constant

Special

Quality Control, thanks to the professionals in our Production Department, our Analysis and Research Laboratory and the White Art Masters who work in constant collaboration to render every blend the perfect Flour.

WHEAT WASHING The practice of washing is – or better was – used mainly to clean the wheat and to eliminate impurities before the milling process; the flour becomes whiter and the grains can be milled in a more homogeneous way. After a first air cleaning, grains are dipped in water for some hours, according to their properties. It is a very important process, now forgotten by big companies that prefers, for financial reasons, dry cleaning followed by conveyor conditioning. The Molino Dallagiovanna, along with few other small high-quality artisan producers, considers cleaning one of the key requirements for creating a superior flour, regardless of the extra costs and profit margins.

STORCI AND PRESSES, TECHNOLOGY TO MEET EVERYONE’S NEEDS

S

torci has always made its mark on the international market with its pasta and couscous production plants. Without doubt it is thanks to its widespread reputation in building presses, the real beating heart of any pasta production line. Its experience and high level of reliability start with the large presses which are built exclusively for Fava and completed by all the other models where quality and attention to detail are never lacking. Up to 600 kg/hour for the production of dry pasta with solutions for making many different types of pasta: from the simplest shapes to the most complex special pastas. Our jewel in the crown? Innovative dough preparation systems such as the Premix® and the Beltmix®, continuous automatic dosing units for dry and liquid ingredients, hardened stainless steel three-spiral extrusion screws with variable pitch for special pasta shapes and longlasting performance. All presses are built from stainless steel and are designed to produce all kinds of pasta using circular to linear dies. The V70.1-220 TV/G and V 90.1250 TV/G models have a horizontal head and are used to produce short-cut pasta and sheets for long pasta (e.g. tagliatelle), cut, or filled pasta. The vertical head models, 70.1 TV, 90.1 TV / 105.1 TV, 130.1 TV, cover a production capacity ranging from

storci FP 1/14.indd 3

180 - 750 kg/h for short-cut pasta and 150 - 600 kg/h for long-cut pasta. The N and D configurations of the double head represent the most interesting patent. The double linear and circular head “N” is specifically designed for short-cut pasta, nested pasta/lasagna sheets and nested pasta/extruded lasagna,

while the double circular and linear head “D” is specifically designed for short- and long-cut pasta, nested pasta/lasagna sheets and extruded lasagna. With the use of special extrusion screws it is also possible to produce special short-cut pasta shapes such as paccheri (sachets) and long-cut candele (candles), ziti (hol-

Special low tubes) and fusilli bucati lunghi (long tubular spirals). Accurate hydration of ingredients is guaranteed by the patented PremixŽ pre-mixing system with electronic regulation of the flow rates based on the set recipes, controlled by the PLC with touch screen: a great way to guarantee excellent production. The application of total vacuum in the tank and the variable profile compression systems complete the processing of the dough to give a yellower product with an improved texture of the cooked pasta. All presses have kneading tanks with paddles attached to the shafts without the use of bolts to guarantee easier cleaning, rounded internal corners and holes for draining of washing water, robust thrust bearing units and high-performance and long-lasting screws. Storci hasn’t just limited itself to testing its presses in the field of pasta production, it has extended its sphere of activity still further,

entering the confectionary sector for the production of sugar grains, liquorice and chocolate grains, and the pharmaceutical sector for the production of citrate based granular digestives. The continuous and constant study given to its presses over time also makes use of a laboratory which has been certified by the Italian Ministry of Higher Education and Research and is widely specialized in the extrusion sector. A further guarantee to testify to the hard work Storci has put into research for many years in its own company. The latest innovations are the WD models, which are 100% washable for regular and constant manual

WD, Washdown is the process of cleaning surfaces which come into contact with foodstuffs from top to bottom using detergent solutions applied using a high-pressure jet cleaner. Maximum speed in fitting and removal operations and, on the inside, raw material transfer units free from stagnation points, protruding bolts or any other components which could prove difficult to clean, facilitate these operations which are of great importance to production. Walkways, steps and platforms and

all structures which are usually horizontal are built following anti-slip criteria to prevent operator slipping hazards during washing operations. At the same time sloping surfaces are designed specifically to meet optimum washing water runoff to avoid stagnation points.

FROM EXPERIENCE SITEP‌ THE WATER COOLER IN CONTINUOUS

T

he increasingly stringent hygiene regulations introduced to the water used in the food industry, combined with the need to use cold water for a good dough, directed us to design this particular type of water coolers which have high performance and optimum quality/price relationship. The refined design and the possibility to be hung to the wall, solve the problem of space and allow the installation of the water cooler near the source of use, eliminating the dispersion of water temperature due to the route in the pipeline when it is placed remotely. The dosakit can be combined to each model; in addition to the functions of water-meter, thanks to the special bundled software, it makes available a wide range of applications to speed up and optimize the work of dough. The function of heating as well as cooling, makes the machine useful and usable throughout the year (and not just in the summer).

SITEP FP 4/13.indd 3

The hygiene: the appropriate serpentine, which contains the water to be used for dough, is made entirely of stainless steel so the water is never in contact with air, eliminating in this way the breeding of bacteria. The dual-circuit cooling / evaporator avoids the possibility to pollute the water in the event of failure of the cooling system. The thermic exchange between the cooling circuit and the recirculation circu-

it (of the water to be used) is ensured by an immersion pump which constantly moves the water. Using mains pressure, the unit doesn’t need pumps for dispensing. Setting of the desired water temperature through a suitable electronic temperature controller. The circuit for the filling of the tank makes it easy to install, avoiding the onerous task to open the machine the first time.

These machines can be integrated with the Sigpack TTM toploader and the Elematic 3001 case packer to create a complete system designed specifically for the primary, secondary and end-of-line packaging of bars and bar-shaped products.

Pack Feeder  4 infeed system enhances efficiency With Bosch’s recently launched noncontact product distribution station Transver SDP and the Pack Feeder 4 infeed system, bar manufacturers can increase efficiency. The sophisticated full product inspection of the Pack Feeder 4 detects misaligned products in order to be rejected. As a result, machine stops are minimized and productivity is increased. Depending on the product being packaged, the feeding system can be optionally equipped with side belts for optimal product positioning and stability, enhancing reliable and efficient bar packaging. The low-pressure design allows for gentle product handling. With its reliability and robustness, the Pack Feeder 4 can be operated 24/7. Thanks to the modularity and standardized interfaces, the feeding system can be easily integrated with Bosch’s flow wrapper portfolio. At Interpack, it will be showcased with the Pack  401 horizontal flow wrapper, now available with a nar-

Case packer newly designed for increased safety and efficiency After making its European debut at FachPack 2013, the Elematic 3001 case packer will have its global launch with Interpack. It handles a variety of pack styles, including tray, classic full wrap-around and two-part, shelf-ready packaging. This flexibility is ideal for manufacturers supporting different brands and products. The new ergonomic design and lowered blank magazine make machine operation easier and safer. With the new

Elematic 3001, easy and tool-less packaging format changeovers are realized thanks to the intuitive “Elematic click system.” When parts lock into place, a click sound indicates the successful format changeover. Manufacturers benefit from higher efficiency as this eliminates timeconsuming fine-tuning and avoids errors while using scales. Compared to previous models, Bosch further enhanced the Elematic’s hygienic design. With fewer components, the frame has an open design and is easily accessible. Horizontal surfaces and corners have been avoided and corrosion-resistant materials, such as stainless steel, anodized aluminum or brass, are used.

NEW FOOD SLICERS AVN140 MULTISLICES AND AVM250 FOR BACON

T

he company B.S. srl manufactures and offers the market the new food slicers AVN140 multislices and AVM250 for bacon, designed and built to deposit the sliced product (cheese, ham, cooked ham, speck and other cured meats, cooked meat, vegetables, fish) with a thickness ranging from 0.5 mm to 15 mm. AVN140, the smallest of the series, has an area of cutting of 125mm x 125mm suitable for cutting small calibers such as those used for sandwiches or rolls. Although very compact and easy to handle, the machine achieves very high cutting speeds always ensuring a perfect storage, with the multislices mode too. The loading of the product, in various lengths, is performed continuously and in succession in the cluster. The sliced product is deposited directly on toast, bread, cakes, pizzas, trays that will be moving continuously or rhythmic pace. The machine is also equipped with an innovative system that allows a rapid and complete sanitation, without using any tools. AVM250, mainly suitable for pizza, mortadella and product of large size, reaches sizes up to 250mm x 600mm. The standard AVM250 was renewed for cutting slices of bacon with an output of 160 cuts per minute on 2 rows. Each cut slice will be subsequently divided into two parts, then to obtain a total of 640 pieces perfectly aligned on the conveyor belt. To ensure high precision of the

BS FP 1/14.indd 3

thickness of the slice, the two shear zones will be managed independently by a proper engine and from the operator panel you can adjust different heights. On the same line can be connected to each other more slicers, this allows to align the mechanism of the two machines and thus have product rows perfectly in series. The loading of the product takes place continuously and in succession in the cluster. On all BS slicers, while maintaining the same characteristics, it is also possible to install a ribbon to achieve the “portions� with

amounts of slices to be chosen that can be stacked or staggered by a programmable distance. The ribbon becomes very useful if you want to deposit more slices on a sandwich, or to prepare the trays with a specific amount of product. All operations can be programmed and stored in order to be able to draw in the shortest possible time data related to a processing previously executed. Finally, the machines are presented ductile thanks to the wheels of which are equipped that allow adaptability to different lines in a short time.

SANITARY DESIGN APPLIED TO THE CHOCOLATE INDUSTRY

T

he chocolate industry has never experienced a crisis. This is probably due to the fact that, unlike most, it has managed to create a new identity for its product assortment. In fact, the sale of chocolate products is no longer limited to “festivities” or “special occasions”, but has rather become a part of our daily diet. This development has been facilitated by a trend whereby the product was liberated of the preju-

CAVANNA FP 1/14 ok.indd 3

dices and prohibitions associated with excessive sugar and fat content, and its antioxidant and toning properties began to be exalted. Chocolate is an amazing product that lends itself to a wide range of packaging possibilities: from the most sought-after solutions, such as cardboard boxes, to practical flowpacks that can be taken anywhere. The primary packaging, or rather that which comes into direct contact with the product,

must provide for an excellent barrier against light, oxygen, humidity and external odours. Cavanna is capable of handling chocolate products in such a way so as guarantee the integrity of the product throughout every stage of the packaging process, while at the same time offering various solutions for obtaining the best flowpack possible: facilitated opening, ultrasonic welding, offset longitudinal welding, lateral gus-

14/02/14 10.37


Special seting, and more. The company even designs and manufactures systems that are capable of simultaneously reducing the space and time required for the management the line and improving the yield of the packaging materials. Working with one of the largest companies in the industry on a worldwide scale, Cavanna even found itself handling nearly 1000 products per minute on a single packaging machine. One of the peculiarities of this packaging line – which is designed for handling demoulded chocolate – is the use of two belts, which are capable of accurately regulating the distance

CAVANNA FP 1/14 ok.indd 4

between the alternating rows of incoming product, without no need to resort to the use of passive mechanical systems. Two distribution systems are subsequently used convey the rows into two loaders: these devices are designed according to the principles of Sanitary Design, and both are equipped with removable trolleys in order to optimize and simplify the cleaning and maintenance of the components, thus providing for considerable time savings. And that’s not all: all the guards installed upon the line are made of transparent Lexan in order to facilitate the inspection of

the line’s functionality, as well as to verify the cleanliness of all the systems installed along the line itself. Finally, in order to make routine and scheduled maintenance operations even easier, the system has been rendered accessible from both sides: from the operator side, as well as from the opposite side. The downstream portion of the line is made up of two Zero 5 packaging machines, which are equipped with removable crimpers in order to facilitate size changing operations: from full-sized chocolate tablets to 200 g. chocolate bars, everything can be managed with maximum ease. At the ProSweets trade fair in Cologne from January 27th to 30th, guests will have the opportunity to check out a concrete example of the extreme flexibility and adaptability that Cavanna’s solutions are capable of offering the industry.

PURE ITALIAN STYLE

“P

uro stile italiano” is the slogan that Morello Forni srl, a young company in the huge world of bakery, pastry and pizza ovens, coming from Palermo (IT), has chosen to introduce itself to the USA market. Our story began in 2005 when Salvatore Morello, who has been working as a seller for several years, decided to start producing his own ovens by taking over a little factory. He put in his products the best synthesis between quality and price as he took the best of both these characteristics from his long experience in this field. A good example is represented by our oven Elektro, totally made in stainless 304; it generates a great quantity of steam (this is of fundamental importance in bread cooking), and has an easy maintenance. Each chamber is independent from the other one and the stones are made with granulated concrete; but the most important feature is the power control system, with a Solid State Relay that completely replaces mechanic contactors, thus assuring a better distribution of the electric power and a faster interaction between the upper resistance and the underlying one. Elektro also has an innovative design in order to emphasize the “Pure Italian Style”, and it is available in three colors: Black, White and Italian Red. Our company can also provide a wide set of ovens that could meet the needs of every baker. Deimos ovens, for example, are different in the height of the cooking chambers (f.e.: 18 cm , perfect for pastry, or 16 cm for pizzas). In particular our Deimos Pizza oven has refractory stones and works up to 400°C (750°F). Phocus is a traditional bakery oven with steam pipes. Its burning chamber is made in refractory stainless, and so we have a sweet cooking. Morello Forni srl, can make Elektro, Phocus and Deimos in different sizes an cooking surfaces together with a great variety of other

machines such as breadcrumbs grinders, rising cabinets and sifting machines to make ricotta cheese cream and other pastry creams for sweets. We are

very proud to say that Morello Forni srl represent in our country the new reality of Pure Italian Style with a Sicilian heart too.

EUROPOOL ACULINE: SINGLE LINE ACCUMULATION CONVEYOR TO MANAGE ALL TYPES OF PRODUCTS.

E

uropool was established in Parma in 1993 in the heart of the Italian Food Valley, an area par excellence of the technology applied to the food, packaging and bottling industry. Europool’s mission is to provide a high standard of engineering for bottling and packaging lines. Europool seeks out the most advantageous solutions thanks to their technology and market solution know-how as well as the extensive experience of their team of engineers and technicians. For each project Europool acts as

SEW EURODRIVE FP 1/14.indd 3

a technical office at the service of the customer in order to obtain solutions with definitive costs and times. Europool offers the customer a global service: sourcing of suppliers and their quality control, coordination and direction even for subsidiary works, drawing up of systems plans, safety requirements and personnel training.

Description of Application: Managing machine intake and output flows, often high performance and high efficiency, sometimes in-

terfacing with pre-existing or third party devices which requires us to predict and prevent any critical issues in the product flow and at the same time to comply with maximum production flexibility. This is possible thanks in part to the new Europool Aculine which is a single line accumulation conveyor equipped to manage all types of products. In the event of problems on the line upstream this application accumulates the flow of bottles exiting the primary packaging machines without holding up production.

By means of a cart which is managed with positioning the bottles are conveyed in serpentine transport which can be of variable length depending on the needs of the line. Once the problem is resolved, the accumulated product is returned to the line at a speed sufficient to clear the accumulated product, ready for storage.

Needs of the customer: 1) Complete automation solution from a single supplier 2) Modularity of the machine 3) Reduction of the number of product codes / Improved service and warehouse management costs 4) Energy savings 5) Electrical panel reduction 6) Cabling costs reduction 7) Reduction of start-up and optimisation times / costs

Description of the solution: We decided to provide a solution complete with the whole machine: 1) The supervisor part is managed through operator panel SEW DOP11B-30 to read the line speeds, bottles accumulated and machine

fault management. 2) Control of the entire machine process is managed with the SEW PLC MoviPlc DHF41B board with standard IEC 61131-3 programming. This board allows management of all the SEW automation products (Movigear / Brushless) as well as all the sensor components for bottle counting or accumulation management. 3) The bottle conveyor belts are moved with the mechanatronics Movigear B system which includes inverter, brushless motor and parallel axis reducer in one product. This product provides a series of advantages: IE4 energy efficiency, reduction of installed power, creation of a line with a limited number of codes thanks to the fact that it allows a high range of speeds, managing up to 250% of the rated torque in the

take-off phase. All the machine sensors are connected to the GIO11B boards which reside on the Movigear for remote digital intake and output management, significantly reducing cabling times / costs. 4) Positioning of the accumulation trolley was managed with the ECR Movigear B version with built in encoder. 5) The linear motion of the belts is synchronised by means of a SEW PLC board with the rotary motion of the belts used for transfer of the bottles onto the accumulation belt. This rotary motion is generated by two servo geared motors controlled by SEW Movidrive actuation.

Conclusion: Compared to standard solutions the following advantages were obtained: 1) The installed power was cut in half from 11KW to 5.5KW. 2) Absorption was reduced by 50% 3) The entire machine was created with only 6 codes, including the electrical panel. Mr Bruno Docimo SEW-EURODRIVE Italia

THE ADVANTAGES OF A CHAIN TRANSMISSION

Rosa Catene: listens, evaluates and solves the Customer’s problems. Mr Rosa, tell us something about your production. Our Company was founded as a manufacturer of standard transmission roller chains. Changes in the market and mainly, competition with the Asian market for these products, brought us to invest in sectors with higher values where our great experience accumulated through the years can be better expressed with products, such as: special custommade chains for the food industry, chains suitable for particular working environments with high or low temperatures, self-lubricant chains which allow customers to completely avoid the use of polluting oils or grease and last but not least, which eliminate periodic maintenance, chains with special coatings which can range from simple galvanization

the pull or power to be transmitted) , but for its overall size. With the same pull, the chain is definitely narrower and it can generally utilize gears with lower pitch diameters.

What are the advantages of chain transmission

What are the characteristics of your products?

The main advantage of chain transmission is the possibility to transmit either small or large powers with the same level of safety, limited size and optimal performance. Another advantage is the high level of elasticity of the chain links and therefore the ability to neutralize the discontinuity of the transmission to a large extent and to mitigate “tears”. Chain transmission , in comparison to belt transmission , takes up less space, not so much for the shafts and the supports (which depends on

Unlike belt transmission, the chain can operate without difficulty at relatively high temperatures with the only requisite being the use of suitable lubrication. Standard configuration chains can work up to 180° C , something “standard” belts cannot do. There is also no slipping between the chain and the pinion teeth. Only a slight adjustment is present allowing the chains to transport heavier loads with respect to belt transmission. Chain transmissions ensure long

working life. The chains are manufactured with materials, heat treatments or with special coatings to permit the chain to operate in difficult environments.

How do you select the chain that better suits the needs of a customer? The solutions we suggest must be effective and must have the unique aim to solve the problem of an application. l’m not talking about miracles. l’m talking about competence.

Our readers mainly operate in the food industry. Others are suppliers of machinery and technologies. How do your products meet the needs of the food industry? The co-operation takes piace in our technical department , depositary of ali our experience accumulated over decades. The Customer indicates the relevant technical data of the requirements of the application and informs us about any eventual problems regarding the environment in which the chain will have to work. We examine the information and discuss ideas. We try to find the weak points that we have to correct even with simple but perceptible improvements and then we choose the best solutions and offer our proposals. Then, the customer must decide which solution better suits his needs, taking into consideration the econimical side, which is also quite essential.

ROSACATENE FP 1/14.indd 4

Can you give us a real example of a benefit that your customer can take advantage of by using your products? lt is precisely the food industry that has considerable needs and performance requirements . Our product has always been defined a “pollutant” in food plants because they are often full of dirt, oils and various lubricants that can affect the hygiene of the environment in which they work. Our decision to intervene by putting “self-lubricant” chains on the market was based on these principles. These chains, mentioned above, avoid any contamination and maintenance. The feedback has been extremely positive. We have customers who install the product and “forget” about it. We solved many problems and many customers rewarded us with their loyalty.

Where do you manufacture your products? In what parts ofthe world do you export? Our Company’s production site is in Calolziocorte in the Itaiian province of Lecco. We export about 60% of our products: ali over Europe, North Africa, Turkey, and Australia.

Tell us about your future projects. Talking about pians for the future, in times like these, with this world wide economica! crisis and in particular with the Italian economy, is not easy. We are investing in resources in new markets where we expect significant returns and we never stop developing new technologies that allow us to reduce the internai production costs. Our Company has continually grown over the years and it has found its piace in the market. We trust in the future because we believe that the “best” will survive and we will be among them.

OERLIKON LEYBOLD VACUUM MOVES TO ITS NEW LOGISTICS CENTRE

O

erlikon Leybold Vacuum, one of the largest hightech vendors for vacuum pumps and systems has at the beginning of this year moved into its new, modern lean logistics centre at the Cologne site. Designed by planning company Dr. SchĂśnheit + Partner, the building was erected by construction company GĂźnther GmbH & Co. KG from Netphen, Germany. This new building is the logistics hub supplying production facilities with goods and controlling international goods flows from Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum to customers and worldwide subsidiaries. Logically placed at the centre of the surrounding production facilities, this new building offers some technical novelties cutting the length of internal pathways and the warehousing time for incoming materials thereby also reducing the door-todoor time of the products. Within a construction period of just under one year, 13,000 t of concrete and 570 t of reinforcing steel were used creating an enclosed space of 59,000 cubic meters. The three-storey building comprises a basement with technical plant room and sprinkler tank. Located on the ground floor is the entire warehouse with automatic small-parts warehouse, narrow-aisle warehouse, and large pallet warehouse as well as functional areas like foyer with waiting area, and areas for picking and provisioning with different building heights. The administration is accommodated on the top floor with a floor space of over 450 square meters. The erection of the building included a peculiarity: the former riverbed of the Rhine had left in this area sandy soil so that the soil con-

Moreover, old foundations and basements were found in this area which now had to be bypassed by pile foundations and which had to be prepared for accommodating the construction of the building itself and the floor slab. 228 large drilled piles were driven up to 17

meters deep into the soil and are now carrying the building and the new 70 cm thick floor slab which is now bearing the load of the 16 meter high storage racks. In order to ensure high turnover speeds of the forklifts in the narrow-aisle warehouse, the flatness of the floor slab had to meet exceptionally high requirements.

QUADRANT LAUNCHES BROADEST RANGE OF EU 10/2011 COMPLIANT STOCK SHAPES FOR FOOD INDUSTRY

Q

uadrant Engineering Plastic Products (EPP) has updated its range of Food Grade Plastics in line with the new European Union Regulation (EU) 10/2011. The move makes Quadrant EPP the first and only engineering plastics’ manufacturer to offer such a broad and fully-tested range of thermoplastic stock shapes complying with the regulation. The portfolio of certified materials, covering PE through to PEEK, gives food producers the assurance of fulfilling the highest safety and quality levels for their food and beverage production systems. New Regulation (EU) 10/2011 is a further development of Directive 2002/72/EC for plastics materials in contact with food, and specifies much stricter test conditions for migration. Within the EU, compliance is required for all food contact materials. All Quadrant EPP Food Grade semifinished stock shapes and customized finished parts are processed and handled according to the new regulation and to the consistent quality control guidelines of Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). Quadrant EPP accompanies each delivery with complete documentation, from choice of raw material to finished parts. This allows

full traceability and also supports customers in reducing their own in-house product testing time and costs. Customers receive a Declaration of compliance with the order (DCO) according to EN 10204-2.1 that ensures the uninterrupted traceability of the plastic product from the stock shape back to the raw material used by batch. Each production step is tested and documented by Quadrant EPP. Quadrant is also ahead of the market in introducing a Declaration of Compliance (DoC) for every delivery – a documentation requirement valid as of 2016 – that includes the complete test conditions together with the migration values of the materials. Tests to determine the migration values of Quadrant EPP’s food contact polymer materials were conducted on the thermoplastic stock shapes by independent external laboratory Intertek. These tests were performed according to regulation (EU) 10/2011. The portfolio of over 30 products was tested per Overall Migration Limit (OML) and Specific Migration Limit (SML) to measure the material inertness and provide a toxicological evaluation of individual substances. By including the pre-tested results with the DoC, customers can more easily calculate migration values for

FOOD MEASURING INSTRUMENTS MUST MEET THE INTERNATIONAL HACCP STANDARDS AND BE “FOOD SAFE” The food sector’s greatest challenge Raw materials and ready-to-eat foods need to be dealt with in a particularly responsible and correct way. Damaged or incorrectly stored goods can not only cause commercial losses, but at worst may also lead to cases of food poisoning for consumers. Food manufacturers must therefore check goods regularly and be able to prove their duty of care according to strict regulations. To ensure this, supervisory authorities, dealers, logistics companies and foodprocessing businesses use modern measuring technology which helps them perform the daily balancing act between food safety on the one hand and cost-effectiveness on the other. Implementation of the HACCP directives which apply all over the world is mandatory. These form the definitive standard for safe food and are increasingly implemented in country-specific laws and regulations. HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) pursue the goal of minimising food-related illnesses. The concept requires systematic checks, most often of the food temperature over the whole cooling chain, but also of pH levels or cooking oil. Technical monitoring, including documentation, is of prime importance in this area.

Measuring technology innovations must meet sector requirements The international measuring technology manufacturer Testo AG from the Black Forest adapted to

TESTO FP 1/14.indd 3

the specific framework conditions of the food sector at a very early stage and in a very comprehensive way. The company’s aim of offering professional, fast, yet safe measuring solutions for food have recently been rewarded by the HACCP International organisation. Testo AG is the only company in its sector to receive an award for its food-safe measuring instruments. The instruments were really put through their paces in testing according to HACCP standards and certified as “food safe”. A series of demanding criteria had to be met for this: from the testing of the material for robustness and for appropriate design, which does not transfer any dirt or germs to food, along with easy cleaning, through to user-friendly handling and the possibility of documenting measurement data. For businesses in the sector, “food safe” means the greatest possible safety when using the measuring instruments and when monitoring the temperature of goods. Testo temperature measuring instru-

ments for contact and non-contact measurement, the cooking oil tester, along with the data logger family and Testo Saveris passed the test and are rated as safe in measurements on food. “Our high requirements in terms of the quality of the measuring instruments are the basis of this success. When developing the instruments, we pay very close attention to fulfilling the HACCP criteria. This means, for instance, that we deliberately involve the suppliers in this area as well, so as to guarantee a universal standard. Certification according to the DIN EN ISO 13485 and 12830 standards goes without saying”, says Stephanie Knill, Product Manager for Testo hand-held measuring instruments, talking about the success.

Everything measuring technology must be able to do The conditions in which food measuring instruments are used are

NEWS IN SHORT

very varied. The HACCP criteria must be fulfilled at every stage of the process which foods go through – From Farm to Fork. The requirements involved in doing so could not be more different in each individual area. All areas of the process do however have one thing in common: the working environment is harsh. Work is done under great time pressure. This means a measuring instrument can be dropped, suffer liquid or dirt ingress or be incorrectly used in the hustle and bustle.

Robustness and simplicity Testo AG’s consistent quality policy takes these special conditions into account. The measuring instruments are appropriately designed. This is the case for example with the testo 104, a folding thermometer for core temperature measurement with an extremely robust metal folding hinge. The possibility of being able to fold the probe up after the measurement makes the instrument easy to handle and solid. Or the testo 108, a temperature measuring instrument with standard penetration probe which gets by with only two keys. It is so easy to operate, that the user does not need to have previous knowledge of any kind. Both instruments cannot be harmed at all by the harsh working environment. At the same time, they meet the HACCP criteria in terms of hygiene, as they are cleaned under running water and germs cannot develop at all in the first place. In addition, there are no superfluous functions which would complicate rapid measurement. Also no preparation time is needed for the measurement in whatever form. Even untrained staff can use these instruments intuitively and carry out safe measurements. Handling is literally accessible at the touch of a button.

TESTO FP 1/14.indd 4

Precision In addition to the very high level of toughness, the Black Forest manufacturers also prioritise the precision of the instruments. These must also be able to measure precisely under more arduous conditions, e.g. where there are big differences in the ambient temperature from one minute to the next. Because the question which is posed for instance in a spot check of the temperature is not just whether the goods are at the correct temperature, but whether the measured value really does correspond to the real situation as well. Testo measuring instruments dispel these doubts. They are calibrated, as well as being approved by DAkkS [the German Accreditation Body] - and now also “food safe”.

Documentation Fulfilling the HACCP criteria does not just mean taking regular measurements. When food inspectors check a business, the operator must be able to prove compliance with the directives at all times. This is done through the time-consuming, often manual documentation of measurement results. For this reason, numerous Testo measuring instruments have appropriate data storage resources or even PC software for data analysis and logging. As an option, handy fast printers can be connected and measurement protocols still developed directly on site. This offers users a high level of safety in terms of being able to verify the proper condition of their goods at all times. For instance, data loggers travel with food being transported in trucks and continuously display the temperature at specifically defined intervals. The smallest temperature fluctuations during transport can therefore be proved. Results can later be read out on the PC. Radio probes are installed at the

important measuring points in large cold stores and warehouses and the data acquired is forwarded to Testo Saveris. The system can save 40,000 measuring values per measurement channel and achieves a storage capacity which means a measurement could be taken every 15 minutes for one year. The temperature is continuously monitored and an alarm is set off at the smallest deviation. Maintenance of the cooling chain is not just ensured, it can also be proved. This means goods which are stored in large quantities are optimally monitored at all times.

Only Testo measuring instruments are “food safe” From a purely technical viewpoint, almost every conventional measuring instrument on the market today is capable of fulfilling the HACCP criteria, to the extent that users are aware of their duty of care and act in an appropriate way. Only a small number of measuring instruments also ensure absolutely safe measurements on foods in the process. “The demands on measuring instruments have been constantly increasing over recent years. In addition to many other factors which measuring technology must comply with in this sensitive area, we also pay attention to the easiest possible use of the instrument. We look on this as a basic requirement of the sector. We know that staff can often change and design our instruments to be as easy and intuitive to use as possible. Because it is only when an instrument can be used correctly that you also get safe results,” says Stephanie Knill and continues: “We are proud of the HACCP International Certification and view this as a spur to make our measuring instruments even safer in the future. We will be a reliable partner for the sector in the future with new innovations all the time.”

NEW XPERT C600 X-RAY SYSTEM MEETS PRODUCT INSPECTION NEEDS FOR LARGE FOOD PACKAGES

Larger aperture handles bigger individual products, packages and cases

F

ood processors can now better meet product inspection needs of larger individual products or packages, as well as filled cases, with a new X-ray system designed specifically for detecting metal, glass, dense plastics and other foreign objects in large food packaging. The Thermo Scientific Xpert C600 X-ray system features a 50 percent larger aperture and wider X-ray beam than that found on the previously-launched Thermo Scientific C400. The 22-inch wide by 10-inch tall aperture enables larger food products that do not fit through standard X-ray machines to be examined for contaminants or inspected for missing or damaged pieces. Examples include larger diameter pizzas (individual or stacked in multipacks), bagged or cartoned items, bulk packages and/or those already placed in corrugated cases. “This larger aperture unit addresses several market needs. For example, some food processors prefer endof-line detection because after a product is sealed and cased it can no longer be con-

taminated. Also, with many brand owners supplying larger-sized items to big box stores and warehouse clubs, the Xpert C600 gives them a way to meet retailer-mandated inspection requirements,” said Bob Ries, lead product manager, metal detection and X-ray inspection, Thermo Fisher Scientific. “The new Xpert C600 reflects Thermo Fisher’s continual investment in product inspection enhancements designed to meet customer needs.” The system can analyze an X-ray

image to estimate weight and fill or determine whether a packaged item has missing objects. Its highly-sensitive detectors are available in 0.8mm resolution, and its suite of algorithms is designed to find small contaminants in complex images with few, if any, false rejects. The Xpert C600 also features a high power 160W X-ray source for better penetration of large objects. The unit’s flexible software design also allows up to eight lanes to be simultaneously fed through the aperture to maximize throughput and reduce cost of inspection. Like its predecessor model, the Thermo Scientific Xpert C600 is designed to run around the clock in harsh environments with less maintenance and fewer repairs than other systems. It operates over a wide 5° to 40° C temperature range and is available in both IP54 and IP65 dust and washdown ratings. Because of its modular design and built-in remote support capability, technicians can troubleshoot and service the system quickly, minimizing expensive downtime.

FT-NIR SPECTROSCOPY AS A FAST SCREENING METHOD FOR THE MEAT PROCESSING INDUSTRY

W

ithin the meat industry the continuous analysis of fresh meat and other ingredients is necessary in order to adapt the recipes to ensure a constant batch to batch quality of sausages and various types of meat products. Moreover, legislation bodies require consistent documentation based on accurate data. Therefore, an increasing demand of fast but reliable analytical tools can be observed which are able to replace the often time and labor consuming classical analyses like gravimetric fat determination or combustion method for protein content. The potential of near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy was discovered in the 1960s first for the rapid characterization of agricultural products like grain. Today NIR is widely used in the food industry for non-destructive qualitative and quantitative analysis of raw materials, in-process materials, and finished products throughout the entire manufacturing process. The FT-NIR technology offers a lot of advantages over classical wet-chemical and chromatographic analyses. It is very fast with analysis times below 30 seconds, cost-effective and safe,

since no hazardous chemicals are used. It simply measures the absorption of near-infrared light of the sample at different wavelengths. The recorded NIR spectrum is characterized by absorbance bands of C-H, N-H or O-H groups in the different molecules, making NIR spectroscopy first choice for the analysis of natural materials like meat and sausage products for fat, protein, moisture and other main components. It will help to

homogenizing the meat or sausage by using a knife mill. These types of mill are usually available in the meat analysis lab already. The sample is then put into an open Petri dish and analyzed by placing it on the bench top FT-NIR spectrometer (Figure 1). The use of modern fiber optic probe technology and contactless NIR measurement heads allows even the analysis of carcasses or complete hams without any sample preparation.

tant to know the exact composition of each incoming batch in order to adapt the recipes accordingly. Measuring the fat content of carcasses is also often a criterion for the value-based payment of the suppliers. FT-NIR offers here a valuable tool for assessing the incoming material. The parameters fat, protein and moisture can be determined simultaneously with only one measurement. With the results, decisions can be taken on how to proceed with the production. Table 1 shows typical results of NIR calibrations with RMSECV being the mean analytical error of the method. The NIR analysis can of course not only take place in the laboratory or at-line. Often, the aim is, to measure continuously in the process, e.g. in a mixer, wolf or conveyor screw. The instant results can then be utilized to decide if making adjustments to a batch e.g. for total fat content is required.

Monitoring the final product quality In Germany alone, there are more than 1500 different types of sausages available in the shops, including fresh or fresh smoked, dry and cooked sausages. In addition a wide variation of hams is produced, including the famous Black Forest ham. By law it is

RAW SAUSAGES

COOKED SAUSAGES

Table 2: Calibration results of raw and cooked sausages required to determine the maximum amount of water, minimum amount of protein and total amount of fat in every type of sausage. Moreover, the salt content is of interest for the producer as well as for the customer. FT-NIR spectroscopy has proven to be an efficient analysis method for the determination of moisture, fat, protein and salt content in various types of sausages. Table 2 shows an example of raw and cooked sausages, analyzed in the laboratory of a large German sausage producer. Another big topic for the production of sausages is the optimization of shelf life. One critical parameter is the water activity (aw). It is defined as the amount of water available for microbial (e.g. bacteria, mold or yeast) growth. The larger the value is, the more likely the sausage is prone to decay. The Spanish institute for agrifood science IRTA (Institut Recerca Tecnològia Agroalimenta) confirmed in a successful study that water activity in e.g. fermented sausages (Figure 2) can be analyzed by FT-NIR spectroscopy with high accuracy alongside the determination of water and salt. The study further suggested that FTNIR is appropriate for monitoring the dry curing process non-destructively in the production.

Compositional analysis of rendered products NIR analysis fermented sausages using a contactless measurement head

BRUKER FP 2/13.indd 4

Approximately 40-50% of the weight of any slaughtered animal is not fit for

human consumption. This material is mostly transformed by the rendering industry into highly nutritional ingredients for the animal feed production. These include sources of energy like tallow or lard as well as protein rich material like meat and bone meal or poultry meal. FT-NIR is well established for the analysis of edible fats of animal origin where parameters like the total fatty acid content as well as free fatty acids and iodine value can be analyzed simultaneously. For animal meals the classical constituents like moisture, fat, protein, fiber and ash can be determined as well as more specialized parameters like energy values or amino acid profiles.

Conclusion With the growing global demand for meat and meat products it can be a challenge to keep the standard quality requested by the customers. FT-NIR Spectroscopy being able to provide analysis results in less than a minute has the potential to complement or even substitute a wide range of classical test methods for the quality assessment of meat and meat products in the laboratory as well as online.

MONDI STATE OF THE ART SOUP PACKET WINS 2014 WORLDSTAR AWARD

M

ondi is very pleased to announce that the “ROYCO” soup packet of Mars Africa has won a 2014 WorldStar Award for Packaging. In partnership with Afripack Consumer Flexibles and the customer Mars Africa, Mondi Extrusion Coatings developed an innovative material for food packaging. “Afripack are proud to be associated with World Class organisations such as Mondi Extrusion Coatings and Mars. This achievement was only possible by driving the principles of true collaboration by all three parties, and the continuous commitment to the joint goal of finding a solution. Our partnership with Mondi Extrusion Coatings in Europe has proven to deliver value to our market in South Africa,” says James Hynd, Executive Director Afripack International. As a result, Mars can reduce the carbon footprint of their instant and packet soup range by 25%. Removing an ingredient – aluminium foil – was the key to success. As replacement, Mondi Extrusion Coatings developed a non-foil, co-extruded paper laminate that protects the product and gives it a long shelf life. By introducing a special sealing polymer, the sealing temperatures could be significantly reduced, resulting in much lower energy use and higher efficiency on the filling lines. “We are both proud and inspired by the recognition that comes with winning a 2014 WorldStar Award! It is a true testament to the innovative spirit, persistence and excellence in collaboration that was required to deliver this great packaging bre-

FLOW PACK PACKAGING MACHINES AND AUTOMATIC PACKAGING SYSTEMS

T

hree decades have passed since in the early 80’s, in a small factory located on the outskirts of Schio, two eager and enthusiastic engineers began to try their hand at used packaging machines, with a view to restoring them to an acceptable working condition. This operation was called an overhaul, a term which has now gone out of use in today’s “disposable” world. It was exactly this constant disassembling, replacing, modifying and testing of old machinery that led to the decision to create new and modern machines. In 1985 the first packaging machines of the newly established Tecno Pack were introduced on the market, immediately enjoying great appreciation among the clientele. Thus began the company’s long journey, focused on responding promptly and professionally to the ever more demanding needs of the market, advancing with courage and determination down the challenging road of automatic packaging

systems. These were years of commitment, sacrifice and constant research, but also great satisfaction and growth. In the meantime, Tecno Pack moved to a new headquarters in the Schio industrial zone, an area better suited for the company’s evolving and growing logistic production needs.Since 2011 the continuity of our work is ensured in a new 6000 m² site also situated in the traditionally hard-working town of Schio, industrially nicknamed “the little Manchester of Italy” since the second half of the nineteenth century. Machine after machine, system after system the story continues, inevitably entwined with professional and personal affairs without, however, affecting the company’s ideological continuity which has been guaranteed over time by constant investment and commitment in research and innovation, the solid genesis of success which led Tecno Pack to qualify as a full-fledged market leader. Tecnopack is pleased to inform that during IBA 2012 it is presenting

FLEXIBLE, EFFICIENT AND THE FASTEST IN ITS CATEGORY: INTRODUCING EVOFLEX™, THE NEXT GENERATION OF PALLETIZING TECHNOLOGY

W

ith the global launch of the EvoFlex™ palletizing range, historic packaging expert Gebo, part of the newly formed Gebo Cermex Group, is pointing the way towards the industry’s future. Designed to offer optimal flexibility, EvoFlex™ high speed palletizer can handle any and all types of products and secondary packaging, with a single-column design, double lifting unit and floor level infeed which sets it apart from dual-column and robotic alternatives. And what’s more, EvoFlex™ is the fastest palletizing system of its category, capable of processing up to twelve layers per minute. Already sold to key bottlers in USA, South America, Europe, Africa and Asia, the EvoFlex™ palletizer is the first in a new family of equipments that looks set to change the face of the industry, a comprehensive range of end-of-line solutions offering unparalleled flexibility, modularity and all-round performance. EvoFlex™ represents the first major product launch from Gebo Cermex,

GeboCermex_VersaFilm FP 1/14.indd 3

the industry-leading packaging line group born earlier this year of the merger between Gebo, a legendary conveying and line engineering brand, and Cermex, the proven expert in overwrapping and end-ofline equipment. Gebo Cermex Business Unit Director - Palletizing/Depalletizing JeanFrançois Tourrenc explains the thinking behind this new range: “The end-of-line packaging market is complex, and becoming more so by the day. With EvoFlex™, we believe we’ve achieved the perfect balance of flexibility and performance. Our customers often need to package a wide range of products with a maximum of speed and reliability and a minimum of operational maintenance.” The flagship EvoFlex™ palletizer is capable of handling all types of products and secondary packaging, and turning out pallets at up to twelve layers per minute. The single column, double lifting unit system is both reliable and efficient, and of course the quality and integrity of the packaging re-

main impeccable, even for the very lightest containers.

Superior functionality and value for money Key to this impressive performance is EvoFlex™’s innovative design (patent currently pending). At a time when robotic solutions are frequently touted as the future of the technology, EvoFlex™ is a unique proposition: a high-performance, ergonomically-designed system allows just one operator to control the whole end-of-line area. Because as well as being the fastest palletizing system with low level infeed on the market, EvoFlex™ is also one of the easiest to use. The simplicity of the single-column system enables the machines to automatically switch between different product and packaging formats in under a minute with no manual adjustment, cutting changeover time and line downtime to an absolute minimum. The ground level infeed means that no pack elevator or platform is required, enhancing the system’s er-

gonomic efficiency and improving health and safety conditions for the operator and the maintenance teams. And EvoFlex™ has another clear advantage over its robotic rivals, which Jean-François Tourrenc is eager to point out: “It’s flexible, fast, easy to use and… simply a better investment than the alternatives! EvoFlex™ has all the functionality of robotic systems and, when you factor in the reduced total cost of ownership, including operational and maintenance costs as well as substantially reduced energy consumption thanks to servomotor technology, our customers really get a great value out of their investment.” An asset which helps explain the instant success this new range has enjoyed: having only just been launched into the market, EvoFlex™ systems have already been sold in the UK, USA, South Africa, Peru and the Philippines, for beer, water and CSD packaging operations in both PET and glass. Professionals from the beverage sector will have the opportunity to judge for themselves this September at Munich’s drinktec show, the world’s largest trade fair for beverage and liquid food technology. Gebo Cermex will be in attendance, presenting their latest innovations to the world and heralding the arrival of the next generation of palletizing solution.

plexe et le devient un peu plus chaque jour. Nous pensons qu’avec EvoFlex™, nous avons atteint l’équilibre parfait entre flexibilité et performance. Nos clients ont souvent besoin de conditionner de larges gammes de produits et ce, avec un maximum de fiabilité et de rapidité, ainsi qu’un minimum de maintenance. » Le palettiseur Evoflex™ est capable de traiter tous types de produits et d’emballages secondaires à une cadence jusqu’à douze couches par minute. Le système mono-colonne à deux tables de transfert des couches est à la fois fiable et efficace, et garantit la qualité et l’intégrité des emballages, même pour les contenants les plus légers.

Fonctionnalité et rapport qualité-prix supérieurs La clé d’une telle performance est le design innovant qu’offre l’EvoFlex™ (brevet en cours). A l’heure où les solutions robotiques sont souvent présentées comme l’avenir de la technologie, EvoFlex™ est une proposition unique : un système dont la performance et l’ergonomie autorisent un contrôle total de la fin de ligne par un seul opérateur. Car tout en étant le système de palettisation avec arrivée basse le plus rapide sur le marché, EvoFlex™ est également l’un des plus faciles à utiliser. La simplicité du système à colonne unique permet des changements automatiques de format de produits ou de packaging en moins d’une minute et sans réglage manuel, réduisant ainsi au strict minimum les temps d’arrêt de la ligne. Grâce à son alimentation basse, plus besoin de système d’élévation de packs ni de plateforme : l’ergonomie du système est totale, et les conditions de sécurité pour l’opérateur et les équipes de maintenance sont optimum. Enfin EvoFlex™ possède un autre atout sur ses concurrents robotiques, comme le souligne JeanFrançois Tourrenc : « Il est flexible,

GeboCermex_VersaFilm FP 1/14.indd 5

rapide, facile à utiliser et... c’est tout simplement un meilleur investissement que toute autre alternative ! EvoFlex™ intègre toutes les fonctionnalités des systèmes robotisés et si l’on ajoute à cela la réduction des coûts total de possession, coûts d’exploitation et de maintenance, ainsi que la diminution substantielle de consommation d’énergie grâce à la technologie servomoteur, il est clair que nos clients trouvent là la meilleure valeur ajoutée du marché ». Un atout de poids qui explique le succès immédiat que cette nouvelle gamme a rencontré : tout juste lancés sur le marché, les systèmes EvoFlex™ ont déjà été

vendus au Royaume-Uni, aux EtatsUnis, en Afrique du Sud, au Pérou et aux Philippines, pour le conditionnement de la bière, de l’eau et des boissons gazeuses en PET et en verre. Les professionnels du secteur des boissons auront l’occasion de juger par eux-mêmes des qualités de l’EvoFlex en septembre au salon Drinktec de Munich, le plus grand salon au monde des technologies pour boissons et liquides alimentaires. Gebo Cermex y présentera aux visiteurs internationaux ses dernières innovations et annoncera l’arrivée de la prochaine génération de solutions de palettisation.

Sustainability is demonstrated in practice at BUERGO.FOL

B

UERGO.FOL, the renowned manufacturer of flexible films, rigid films, reclosable films, skin films, and shrink films for the food industry and for numerous technical applications, is increasingly focusing on sustainable packaging systems. The film manufacturer therefore not only pledges to realize real and verifiable protection of the environment, but also translates this concept into action. Saving resources and recycling while maintaining its renowned product quality are the goals declared by the company headquartered in Siegenburg, Germany, in the lower Bavarian district of Kelheim.

1. Are the current bioplastics really sustainable? Everyone uses the term „sustainable“ today, but due the extremely widespread use of this term, especially in the packaging industry, very few people actually know what is meant by this term. Wikipedia says the following: „Sustainability is the capacity to endure. For humans, sustainability is the long-term maintenance of responsibility, which has environmental, economic, and social dimensions, and encompasses the concept of stewardship, the responsible management of resource use. In ecology, sustainability describes how biological systems remain diverse and productive over time, a necessary precondition for human well-being. Longlived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems.“ [1]. All too quickly now - under the guise of „sustainability“ – companies are bridging the gap to the use of renewable raw materials in the production of films, the manufacture of biologically degradable films, and to the natural cycle by subsequent composting of the films or packaging. It is a very

BUERGOFOL FP 3-13.indd 3

good and well-rounded concept that will surely forge its own path in the future. However, in the year 2013 this concept will not yet become complete because when you take a critical look behind the green curtain, you will see numerous corners and edges. For example, the raw material polylactic acid (PLA) is a renewable resource, but it is unfortunately manufactured today in the USA based on genetically modified corn. It is unthinkable to use this PLA in films and packaging in many European countries, and especially in Switzerland. The exact same criticism applies to the heavily advertised compostability of packaging made using biomaterials, which can even be certified according to DIN EN 13432 [2]. Only a few packages and bags land in (industrial) compost – just like before, they continue to be fed to incinerators [3]. Experts in the field of biopolymers also expressly recommend their incineration [4]. Furthermore, there is not any method available for recycling biomaterials. In contrast: If large amounts of PLA were to be sent to the recycling plant, then the raw materials would contaminate the waste stream and make other recycled plastics unmar-

ketable. Based on a report from the experts at Euwid, the Petcore organization views the recycling of PET bottles to be at risk. Even a small market share of PLA could lead to a serious disruption of the infrastructure for recycling PET bottles in Europe.“ [5]. Another setback in relation to the use of biopolymers for packaging arose at the beginning of 2013: Until the end of the year 2012 biodegradable packagings made from renewable raw materials were exempted from the DSD fees. This “promotion” ends from the beginning of the year 2013 [6]. As the European Bioplastics has announced in June 2012, further amendments of the German Biowaste Ordinance lead to restrictions, that not all “biopackaging” may be disposed of in the brown bin [7]. The entire system of biopolymers based on renewable materials is evidently still in its infancy. There are only a few suppliers, and they often have a monopoly in the market. Even in terms of the properties of the materials, films made of biopolymers cannot measure up yet to established products manufactured on a petrochemical basis because in many cases they are still too

PACKAGING LABELLING

brittle, sensitive to water, temperaturesensitive (below 60°C for PLA based biopolymers), poor-sealing (for cellulose-based), difficult to process, and do not function as a barrier. BUERGO.FOL Managing Director Gregor Schleicher does not see the end of the possibilities for biopolymers by a long shot yet. Without the support of petroleum-based polymers, it is impossible to achieve the properties in films and packaging that customers are accustomed to. In addition, Schleicher also expressed moral considerations regarding the manufacturing of plastics using food intended for humans and livestock. In summary, it can be said that this still does not justify the high price for films made of biomaterials. Very few consumers are willing to pay for them because they are not convinced yet of the advantages of packaging made of biomaterials and are even confused and insecure about their use due to the continuous flood of new organic logos and controversial public discussions. It may take many years before bioplastics, praised as

being renewable and sustainable, and the products produced using them become a serious alternative to petroleum-based plastics. BUERGO.FOL is monitoring these developments very closely, but only after the concept of renewable resources is sensible and consistent in all aspects will consumers be willing to accept them.

2. Real Sustainability In the meantime, BUERGO.FOL is following and realizing a different path to more sustainable products. As a pioneer in Germany, the company has been offering foamed APET films in thicknesses ranging from 300 to 800 μ under the new brand name „BUERGO.PET expanded“ for some time now. These films are produced on the ultramodern facilities available at the site in Ingolstadt, Germany. The weight of the foamed film is approximately 30% lower in comparison to that of conventional APET films. This results in significant material savings, and therefore to a more sustainable use of natural resources. BUERGO.PET expanded has

BUERGOFOL FP 3-13.indd 4

a very high mechanical strength and is perfectly suited for use as a deep draw film on all common thermoforming and packaging machines, even on older models. This means processors of the film and packagers using the film can still use their existing machines without having to retrofit them, and they can even continue working with their standard machine settings. The thermal formability is also much better in comparison to non-foamed films as well. For example, extremely deep recesses can be formed without requiring the use of a stamp. The structures applied to the thermoforming mold are formed precisely and with detailed contours on the foamed film. Furthermore, the foamed APET film can be cut perfectly – sharp edges and sharp corners are a thing of the past now. At the same time, wear on the cutting knifes is minimized. The foaming effect also provides other advantages in addition to the advantage of a reduction in weight: due to the insulating effect, the keeping quality of the packaged product improves as well. Visually, the foam structure is very appealing and attractive, and the film and packaging feel soft and smooth in your hand while still providing a good grip. This provides an additional incentive to the consumers at the point of sale to purchase the product. In addition, BUERGO.PET expanded is also available in various colours, and the film can be printed with excellent results, which means it is possible to realize new and individual packaging ideas as eye-catchers on the shelves and ideal product presentations. The innovative foam films based on polyester are therefore superbly suited for the manufacture of trays, tablets, pans, plates, dishes, and cups for the food area as well as for the non-food area. Their use for packaging foods such as meats and sausages, cheese, snack items, fish and seafood, poultry, baked goods and ready-made meals on the one hand, and for consumer and industrial goods such as hygiene products, household goods, office sup-

plies, electronics on the other hand, must be particularly emphasized. The combination of stackability and slippage resistance in the packaging is guaranteed.

Composite Films Just like before, the new foamed APET films can also be bonded to a laminate with barrier films from the BUERGO. FOL company in an additional refinement step. The bond is strong and permanent. Delamination does not occur in top films or in bottom films. By selecting suitable laminating films, it is possible to vary the barrier properties for oxygen, carbon dioxide, and water vapour as well the opening characteristics of the packaging. The spectrum ranges from tight sealed packaging to packaging that is especially easy to open, i.e. easy to peel. As a whole, this allows the realization of customized packaging, and the film specialists from Bavaria are ready to meet the demands and requirements of manufacturers, retailers, and consumers.

4. Savings Sustainable development will be part of the future of the packaging market. In times of heavy pricing pressure, the economical use of resources will become more important than ever. The following table shows the potential savings in packaging by comparing the foamed APET film BUERGO.PET expanded with the non-foamed BUERGO. PET film. The table shows how much packaging material weight can be saved when using the foamed film. In addition to the cost savings in material and the lower transportation costs Typical bottom film

resulting from the lower packaging weight, it is also necessary to consider the not-so-insignificant savings in DSD (dual refuse system) fees for the „Green Point“ system. Particularly noteworthy in this context is the fact that the foamed APET sheet BUERGO.PET expanded is mainly produced with recycled materials. This results in a very low value for the carbon footprint (kg of CO2 eq. / kg polymer) in a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and a considerable saving of energy.

5. Summary and Outlook The new, verifiably sustainable concept from BUERGO.FOL, who has already realized the production and sales of foamed APET films in the BUERGO. PET expanded product class, also offers a whole range of advantages on the product side: • Excellent processing characteristics on existing machines • Appealing look and feel • Outstanding mechanical properties In comparison to other plastics, Gregor Schleicher, Managing Director of the BUERGO.FOL GmbH, stated the fol-

lowing: „In comparison to polypropylene PP, the foamed APET film stands out due to is significantly better processing properties, higher plant effectiveness, and lower energy consumption. Compared to polystyrene PS, BUERGO. PET expanded has significantly better mechanical properties with comparable recyclability.“ One of the reasons why the marketing of foamed APET film is now being advanced is the fact that weight savings of up to 30% are possible in packaging and that the packaging material show a very good LCA-value. This responsible handling of resources is environmentally friendly since it reduces the overall energy consumption and CO2 emissions. This and other sustainable concepts will be more intensely pursued in the future at BUERGO. FOL because this company is aware of responsibility for the environment and for the living conditions of future generations.

About BUERGO.FOL BUERGO.FOL produces flexible films, rigid films, reclosable films, skin films, and shrink films for the food industry and a number of technical applications at three locations in southern Germany using an ultra-modern machine park, and employs almost 300 people.

erhard Schubert GmbH is again boosting the capacity of its extremely flexible TLM packaging technology. The latest TLM generation will premiere at interpack 2014. A prototype of the world’s first packaging machine without a switch cabinet will be among the innovations presented. The launch of 3D scanners has set a milestone for product image processing. Both the housing and the inner workings of the transmodules have been updated. Schubert will exhibit a total of three TLM picker lines and a TLM packaging line at trade fair stand 14A06 in Hall 14. The packaging line utilises automatic tool change to produce shelf-ready cartons of aerosol cans. With all of its innovative projects, Schubert pursues the principle of combining intelligent software with reduced mechanical systems. This approach is also embodied in the

trol cabinet when launching the TLM series. This is due to the fact that the servoamplifiers are part of the TLM robot within a decentralized controller system and no longer take up space in the control cabinet. In addition, the number of electronic parts has been significantly reduced.

Schubert already achieves higher efficiency in manufacturing and configuring the lines in the current stage of development. Customers benefit from lower maintenance expenditures. Because each function can also malfunction, having fewer components means a lower susceptibility for error.

New performance dimensions for the Vision System The 3D scanner from Schubert realizes spatial perception. The resulting height profile reflects the threedimensional shape of the product to be packaged. This development is based on the stereoscopic approach, which means that the scanner

captures two views of each product from different viewing angles. In doing so, it realises a height resolution of 0.5 mm in a measuring range of 60 mm height. This advancement has facilitated numerous application options. The first TLM picker line with a 3D scanner has already been put into operation by a candy manufacturer in Belgium. This technology has raised quality assurance to a new level of performance. The 3D scanner opens up attractive control parameters such as volume, weight and stack height. The Vision System tolerates belt soiling, as long as it remains below a certain height threshold, which allows products to be detected under difficult conditions.

Sophisticated multi-talent: The transmodule Since the transmodule was introduced in 2009, around 3,000 of these transport robots have been put into use in TLM packaging lines worldwide. They convey products and boxes in TLM standard machines or picker lines, act as carrier carriages for the deep-drawing tools, or facilitate automatic tool change. The transmodule ultimately made it possible to realise the new TLM filling machines. As part of the latest TLM transmodule update, the transport carriage was shortened and equipped with an LED display to indicate the operating status. The transmodules’ control electronics are now based on a Uni 5 assembly, the current controller assembly of the latest generation of the Schubert packaging machine controller. The values for maximum acceleration and speed have been significantly increased. Furthermore, Schubert has already announced the next conceptual product for the intelligent transport robots: transmodules that can move along curves. Negotiating curves allows

even more freedom when designing the layout. Unnecessary interfaces are eliminated and the line’s compactness increases. New VMS generation: Improved performance for data transfer There is also news regarding the VMS packaging machine controller. The fifth generation of VMS modules now communicate via Sercos rather than via the signal bus. As a standardized, real-time-capable Ethernet bus, Sercos provides advantages in data transfer while at the same time guaranteeing the deterministic transfer of signals. The data transfer of the VMS controller now achieves 16,000 signals per millisecond and 10 million data bits per second, which corresponds to a performance increase of 400% or 20.000%, respectively. Schubert utilises Sercos in its TLM machines only in the form of loop structures. If a component fails or a line is interrupted, the controller can localise and display the fault location reliably. Because each station can be reached from two sides, the line itself continues to run failure-free even if the Sercos cable breaks.

Applications Flexible for all products Thank to its flexibility, TLM technology is fundamentally suitable for packaging any product. The four packaging machines displayed will give an impression of the broad range that Schubert offers. The packaging machine prototype without switch cabinets processes infusion bags as its product. Members of the new Schubert Pharma expert team will be available to consult customers from the pharmaceutical industry. The packaging line for cartoning aerosol cans will be delivered to a customer after interpack. With this exhibit, trade fair visitors can obtain information regarding the function of the automatic tool change and be

persuaded of the added value of this technology on-site. The line comprises just four sub-machines. It currently processes aerosol cans of four different sizes and makes shelf-ready cartons in four different dimensions (cardboard tray plus lid). The output is 320 products per minute. A picker line which groups bottles on transmodules using TLM-F44 robots conveys an impression of the diverse options for the beverage industry. The trade fair machine runs with an output of 12,000 bottles/ hour and demonstrates product handling without any backup. Schubert combines a compact design with high flexibility, which is exactly what is required in many production plants in the beverage industry.

Another picker line groups chocolate bars on TLM transmodules. The trade fair machine runs with an output of 600 bars per minute and visualises how TLM lines handle products both flexibly and extremely gently. Ralf and Gerald Schubert are looking forward to the prospect of presenting the result of having invested many thousands of manhours in research and development for the first time at interpack. “Our customers appreciate Schubert as a partner who is always ahead of its time,” reports Gerald Schubert. “In fact, with our innovations we are determining the future of packaging machine engineering.” Further information is available at www. gerhard-schubert.de

AK GIDA RELIES ON OYSTAR HASSIA The dairy producer AK Gida, a subsidiary of Turkey’s largest food group, Ülker, is increasing its cream cheese production capacities. The company has purchased yet another THM 16/48 form, filling and sealing (FFS) machine manufactured by OYSTAR Hassia.

A

ltogether, AK Gida markets more than 20 different dairy products, from cheese and butter to homogenized milk and powdered milk, all the way to yoghurt and pudding. The dairy producer, whose brands also include Petit Suisse, a cream cheese product made of pasteurized cow’s milk enriched with a wisp of cream, is one of the leading manufacturers in the Turkish market. Now AK Gida intends to strengthen its production capacities in the cream cheese segment even further by turning to the latest machine technology. OYSTAR Hassia’s THM 16/48 form, filling and sealing machine with an aseptic dosing system. “It was our goal to achieve the very best production for our top seller, Petit Suisse,” explains Ömer Murat Gümüşdağ, Production Director at AK Gida. “OYSTAR Hassia has been supplying us with the highest quality of innovative machinery for years now and that makes them the right partner to help us reach our goal. The food manufacturer had already purchased an aseptic machine for its pudding production in 2003. Two additional machines followed in 2007: a stick pack machine for chocolate sauce as well as an additional FFS machine for the production of cream cheese.

OYSTAR FP 1/14.indd 3

Maximum Efficiency The new THM 16/48 from OYSTAR Hassia is distinguished by its reliability and high rate of efficiency. The FFS machine produces 54,000 45-gram cups per hour at a nominal output of 30 strokes per minute. “This output has allowed us to increase our production capacity several times over, even as we reduced our downtime”, states Ömer Murat Gümüşdağ. AK Gida also enjoys improved flexibility; in addition to handling Petit Suisse, the THM 16/48 can switch over to the 35-gram cups used to make the Smartt brand chocolate pudding when necessary. Both the cream cheese and the pudding cups are manufactured in 6-pack units (30-up format). The 6-pack units are provided with perforated snaplines to allow the cups to be separated easily. The tool is designed for “lowwaste” perforation with trimming and star-shaped punching. “This offers us more than maximum efficiency; it promotes the environmentally friendly manufacture of our products”, summarizes AK Gida’s Ömer Murat Gümüşdağ. Steam Disinfection To ensure the quality of the product, the THM 16/48 comes in the “Hygienic Active” version for the active disinfection of the bottom web and lid material. In other

words, steam is used to disinfect the wrapping materials, which are then passed on in a tunnel with sterile air overpressure until the cups are sealed to prevent re-infection. In addition, a membrane valve dosing system (CIP/ SIP-capable) in aseptic design featuring 30 filling nozzles is integrated and a gas flushing of the cup headspace takes place. “This ensures the highest hygienic demands are met and guarantees an optimal product protection with the best-possible quality assurance”, emphasizes Ömer Murat Gümüşdağ of AK Gida. The FFS machine is operated using the TEOs HMI panel developed by the OYSTAR Group. Machinery operation is intuitive, using a modern multi-touch system similar to that of a smartphone. Operators further have the support of a help system integrated into the HMI software: Each time a parameter is entered, the system offers tips on choosing the right settings, and if an error message appears, it displays photos, graphics and tips from the operating manual and the circuit diagrams. “I believe we’ve really made the best possible choice here,” Ömer Murat Gümüşdağ from AK Gida sums up. “We have the ideal setup for our cream cheese production. Once again, further investment in an OYSTAR machine has paid off!“

HOWEVER YOU SLICE IT, SUPERLOCK’S A WINNER FOR SALAMI

S

alami manufacturer Norwegian Grilstad has met consumer demand for an exciting new packaging format using the acclaimed SuperLock® from RPC Superfos. A survey run on behalf of Grilstad showed clearly that Norwegian consumers were not satisfied with the available packaging for sliced salami and would prefer a twist-off, screw-on lid to replace the traditional tear-open flexible pack. The results were so clear that Grilstad decided to act immediately, with the goal of being the first on the market with this type of salami packaging. The company worked closely with RPC Superfos and came up with the idea of also using the pot upside

down so that the lid acts as a serving dish – an innovation which further enhances ease of use. It can then be resealed easily, minimising food waste. Development Manager at Grilstad, Terje Sørnes, explains: “We chose the SuperLock pot because it is the only solution on the market offering three desirable qualities all in one: an oxygen barrier, decoration with In-Mould Labelling and a twist-off screw-on lid. ”When we came up with the idea of using the pot upside down, we found it so obvious that we had to ask ourselves why no one had thought of it before.” Grilstad reports good sales since the 1 September launch for all three of its varieties; Jubelsalami, Su-

persalami and Trønderfår in 120g and 150g variants. Terje Sørnes adds: “Working with RPC Superfos has been exciting and rewarding. The project was run with very tight deadlines to shorten the time-to-market. Thanks to our close cooperation we can be proud of the launch.” In addition, the new approach to sliced salami has generated substantial media excitement: “The attention that we got from the media was overwhelming. Thanks to the packaging, we received a great deal of coverage in major newspapers and news websites. “Also on our Facebook page, the new pack has created a lot of buzz people want salami with a twist-off screw-on lid.”

LIGHTWEIGHT AND VERSATILE, THE MULTIPLE APPLICATIONS OF EPS PACKAGING

The wide range of physical/mechanical properties and the superb flexibility of Expanded Polystyrene to the most diverse needs provide competitive solutions, both economically and environmentally, to the problems of packaging, which can vary greatly according to level of protection required for products.

Thermal Insulating Containers The outstanding and peculiar characteristic of EPS to preserve food and beverage enable freshness extension of food for a long period of time, thus limiting temperature ranges of the packaged products. The usage of EPS ranges from fish boxes to ice-cream containers, passing through the little-known take away disposable cups and mozzarella boxes; the main parameters to be considered here are temperature and how to keep the right one. The high insulating capacity which characterizes expanded polystyrene (EPS) is crucial to satisfy the requirements of isothermal containers, which can keep packaged products in the best and constant temperature conditions. The capacity of a material to conduct heat is commonly expressed by the measure of “thermal conductivity” (λ): the lower this value, the better its insulating capacity. If we compare the thermal conductibility value of EPS (about 0.035 W/mK), with the value of other conventional packaging materials, we realize that EPS is an ideal material to manufacture packaging which must ensure thermal insulation. The peculiar thermal insulating properties of EPS combined with hygiene and safety features (it is resistant to fungi and bacteria) makes it ideal to be used, for example, to keep a perishable product such as seafood in a

AIPE FP.indd 3

evenly fresh environment for the time needed to send it to the market. Moreover EPS is inert to fats, salts, acids and its closed cell structure prevent water or any other liquid from being absorbed.

Fish Boxes Available in a variety of custom molded shapes (boxes, containers, trays, plateaus, etc) EPS is the most popular material for seafood products, which remains a major food industry sector in which EPS dominates with many thousand of tons used, replacing wood almost completely, thus satisfying the strict regulations in force, both at a European and at a national level. This is possible mainly thanks to three fundamental roles which EPS fulfils simultaneously: insulating protection, hygienic protection and anti-shock protection. EPS effectively retards balance with room temperature and ensure to keep optimal thermal conditions for the packaged goods. Fish maintains its qualities and freshness and is not subject to thermal shocks, thus preserving from abrupt temperature changes that may alter it. EPS boxes for seafood packing/packaging are waterproof and ensure product protection against contamination, keeping it in satisfactory hygienic conditions. Moreover they are designed so as to facilitate drainage of meltwater,

as required by the regulations in force. As for the latter aspect, fish boxes are designed in two ways: › The box base has a separated compartment, serving as a collection system, so that meltwater, or even the physiological fluids of fish, can percolate there and do not come into contact with the product. Therefore the product lays on a surface having some cracks/splits of a reduced size (which does not compromise their performances) suitable to the aim. › The internal lining is manufactured with special material to absorb the melted ice and other liquids for the necessary time. The current EPS boxes are manufactured by using the technique of surface crystallization, a production technology involving different products, which provides a better surface finishing, both as for mechanical resistance and hygiene and easier cleaning. These are extremely relevant aspects for the compliance to the strict existing reference standards found in this field of application.

Ice-cream Containers For takeaway ice-creams and frozen cakes, both for handicrafts and industrial products, a consistent range of EPS thermal insulating containers is available on the market, in different shapes and types: there are containers that can be stacked, which facilitates storage in ice-cream shops, saving on space, or others coming in various shapes (flower, small case, etc…) providing attractiveness and packaging design to the end product. Different finishing of containers can be obtained: smooth, rough, mat, decorated or embossed surfaces, according to different specifications and requirements. Such a wide range of customized products offers endless options in terms of appearance and communication. The transfer phases are the most critical moments and the use of EPS containers can better solve the problem of transporting the ice-cream from cold storage of the sales point (display fridge of the ice-cream shop for example) to the fridge-refrigerator of your home. The most widespread containers are made up of two components: one EPS molded and a thermoformed part in crystal polystyrene (PS), intended to contain the foodstuff, later introduced or directly glued to the first one during the manufacturing stage. The “crystallization” technology has been recently introduced for ice-cre-

am containers also.

Bottle Containers (oil/wine cellars) EPS is also used to manufacture interesting types of bottle packaging: versatile containers, with an innovative and modern look, to transport

AIPE FP.indd 4

WEIGHING

any type of bottle (Bordeaux, Burgundy, Rhenish, Champagne, as well as round and square oil bottles). In this case expanded polystyrene is no longer a primary packaging (since it does not come into contact with the food-beverage) while it turns into a practical bottle-holder: the packaging is extremely handy, which ensures goods protection and thanks to its insulating properties, it preserves wine and oil from abrupt changes in temperature (remember that the

packaging can always be personalized by using silk-screen printing). Different solutions are available on the market, with the most diverse models according to the customers needs: gift packages characterized by an elegant design, providing single packaging for 1 or 2 bottles, or bottle holder systems which can receive up to 6 bottles, handy, resistant and suitable for big shipments. Finally real “display/packaging” are available on the market, that is systems that package products, allow their handling and they are then turned into a display to be used on the point of sale. This new concept of handling (the packaging which displays) can be used with all the items c onnected to world of mass retailing and in particular preserves, oil, beverage, pasta, cakes, gifts and fancy goods.

EPS is widely used in the fruit and vegetable industry, since its features are well suited to the operating, trading and communication needs of the sector, thus making it a packaging product useful for collection and preservation, for shipment and transport, for retailing and display. EPS provides actually a robust and protective packaging which can reduce logistic damage and the consequent deterioration of food and at the same time able to keep its freshness and nutritional values. According to some studies, fruit and vegetable products, especially in the mass distribution, are subject to packaging damage (on the average, 30 to 45% of more than 80,000 tons of fruits and vegetables packaged in one yean in US proved to be damaged) and for this reason some international research institutes carried out analysis by comparing different types of packaging to optimize the transport of fruit and vegetable products and reduce the relevant bruises. EPS packaging proved to be the best, thus showing that EPS can keep nutritional values of these delicate products. (Studies carried out on apples, pears, grapes, marrows, cucumbers, tomatoes).

PREMIUM LINSTAR TRAY IS LEADING LIGHT OF EPS RANGE BY LINPAC

A

pioneering new foam tray developed by leading food packaging manufacturer LINPAC Packaging for meat and fish products can save retailers thousands of Euros each year thanks to its innovative absorbent core. The LINstar EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) tray incorporates a built-in patented high capacity absorbent core to draw unsightly meat juices from view and prevent leaks from the pack, removing the need for separate soaker pads which are found in standard EPS packs and often disliked by consumers. LINPAC Packaging, which has a manufacturing site in Verona and its sister company Infia based in Bertinoro, has developed the unique trays for Italian retailers and food manufacturers looking for lighter, value-added packaging and who want their products to stand out from the competition. Cristiano Madama, Managing Director at LINPAC Verona, said: “Italy has been strongly affected by economic weakness and aging populations both of which have impacted consumer markets across Europe. The high unemployment rate and wavering consumer confidence has resulted in changes in the shopping behaviour of Italian consumers. In response, product and packaging manufacturers need to keep abreast of altering consumer preferences in order to be able to cater to wide-ranging demand.” Despite the challenging economy, the value of the Italian protein sector is forecast to grow by almost 10% between 2013 and 2017, from €13,402m to €14,691m. Market volume is expected to see similar growth, of 12%, during the same period; in 2010 market volume in Italy was 1,837m Kg and by 2017 this is predicted to increase to 2,058m Kg (source: Canadean). Cristiano continued: “Changing con-

LINPAC FP 1/14.indd 3

sumer preferences are affecting the packaging industry in varied ways, driving the need for greater innovation and design. Our LINstar trays are at the cutting edge of innovation in EPS. The patented absorbent core locks away meat juices, greatly improving the onshelf appearance of the product and driving up sales. Whilst the premium quality of LINstar commands a higher cost than that of a standard EPS foam tray, we are confident that retailers will reap the benefits of having an efficient packaging solution like LINstar on their shelves and will quickly see a return on their investment.” The LINstar trays were trialled by a leading supermarket retailer in The Netherlands early last year. The cost savings - €50,000 at one store alone – led to the trays being rolled out for use across all its stores in the country. LINstar’s absorbent core significantly improves pack and meat presentation helping to drive sales and reduce the number of packs exceeding their sellby date and wasted. “Consumers want a ‘clean’ pack and are likely to leave those which have blood and other juices visible on the shelf, even if the meat looks juicy and fresh,” said Cristiano. “Packaging manufacturers have been challenged with cutting waste across the whole supply chain – not just packaging waste but food waste too – and the LINstar tray excels in this area. With its lock-away core, the quality and freshness of meat was deemed higher by consumers when it was packed in a LINstar tray compared with other EPS trays. This means the amount of pack price mark downs and loss of sales due to quality issues is greatly reduced.” EPS foam trays are often viewed as a low cost option for in-store packing of goods. However, the associated cost of cleaning down shelving systems

when packs leak as customers search for their preferred cut of meat is often not taken into account. Similarly, the extra costs related to the rewrapping of leaking packs, for example additional films, labels, printing and man hours are overlooked. The revolutionary absorbent core within LINstar trays means retailers will no longer be faced with these issues. The LINstar range delivers all the environmental benefits associated with EPS, making it an ideal choice for retailers and packers who are looking to minimise their carbon footprint and drive up sustainability in their business. Alan Davey, Director of Innovation at LINPAC Packaging, said: “Foamed materials meet all the requirements of modern packaging with regards to the environment and recycling. Given that EPS is 98 per cent air, it is the ultimate low carbon packaging option. It is one of the lightest packaging solutions on the market significantly reducing transportation costs and thus further reducing the carbon footprints of manufacturers and retailers throughout the supply chain.

A RANGE OF INNOVATIONS FOR THE DOUBLE ANNIVERSARY YEAR

T

heegarten-Pactec is showcasing a new unit which groups individual products for secondary packaging and completes any product formation. Defective products are rejected without affecting the grouping operation. The grouping unit buffers any empty cycles until the right number of products for transferring to the secondary wrapping machine has been reached. The company developed this technology for the new generation of the HCW4/ FPC5 packaging machine, which is premiering at the trade fair. Theegarten-Pactec has a total of twelve exhibits at its stand, A21 in hall 4. Visitors to the stand can experience the latest developments in the machine range for the wrapping of small pieced confectionery items. The HCW4 wraps preformed candies in bottom-fold wrap. This style of wrapping is usually combined with secondary packaging. At this year’s interpack, TheegartenPactec is presenting the FPC5 horizontal flowpack machine, thereby bringing to bear one of the HCW4’s new features which enables it to be linked up with continuous-operation wrapping machines such as the FPC5.

THEEGARTEN FP.indd 3

Normally, entire product formations have to be rejected if a single product is found to be defective when it reaches the secondary packaging machine interface, resulting in the loss of perfectly good products. For manufacturers, the HCW4/FPC5 combination means they no longer need to write off any rejects during grouping. Any individual products that are not wrapped or spliced will already have been rejected by the HCW4 during full machine operation. The new solution is based on a machine with three grouping units, each equipped with its own servo motor. The flexibility and capacity of the design serves as a buffer and absorbs any empty cycles. The latest model in the HCW range features a number of other innovations besides. Products are removed from the removal wheel while wrapping materials are fed in there simultaneously. This method of organising the wrapping process minimises the number of transitions, thus ensuring particularly gentle handling of the products. The HCW4 is also a more compact machine than its predecessor and increases the wrapping capacity from 1,300 to 1,500 operating cycles

per minute. Theegarten-Pactec is also bringing its CWM2 wrapping machine for chocolate products to interpack. Compared with the previous model, this one provides a much higher level of user accessibility. As before the model update, this wrapping machine offers a variety of different wrapping styles. The improved ergonomics make it quicker to change between wrapping styles and formats, while also making them more reproducible. At the exhibition stand, a CWM2 wraps dome shaped products in top twist style. A gondola storage system feeds the machine. Another CWM2 wraps Neapolitans in envelope fold. Theegarten-Pactec offers manufacturers twenty wrapping styles across its machine portfolio. One of them, vienna-fruit fold, is being showcased with two new capacity figures. The maximum operating speed is now up from 400 to 800 products per minute. The rise has been made possible because the MCC wrapping machine is set up to facilitate vienna-fruit fold wrapping.

CAP REFORM: DAIRY INDUSTRY FAVOURS INTERVENTION PURCHASING SYSTEM AS PART OF AN EFFECTIVE AND COST NEUTRAL SAFETY NET

In view of the current ‘trilogue’ discussions, the European dairy industry puts forward an effective safety net as an alternative to any form of supply management. This safety net should primarily operate through an intervention purchasing system, which has already proved itself to be effective and cost neutral to the EU budget in the past. EDA urges therefore the negotiators in the trilogue to make the appropriate modifications to the safety net to make this a viable measure against extreme price volatility.

O

n several occasions, the European Dairy Association (EDA) has voiced serious concerns about proposals for supply management in times of crisis by the EU in the dairy sector. The European dairy industry is not in favour of such measures for a number of reasons: first of all, it will not result in the desired price effect and second, it would primarily assist other, non-European, countries to profit from the growth in world market demand. There are also important concerns with regards to the efficiency, competitiveness, investment, budget, timeliness and administration of such a system. Yet freely operating markets are inherently volatile, and can cause needless destruction to productive potential. As there are no valuable private sector solutions in place yet, the EU should play a continued role in market management until these solutions become available.

EDA FP 6/13.indd 3

EDA is of the opinion that the provision of an effective safety net, primarily through the operation of an intervention purchasing system, would be a more effective means of addressing price volatility than supply management. Intervention purchasing has proven to be effective in 2009 in placing a floor in the market. It has also shown itself to be cost neutral to the EU budget. Concretely, the European dairy industry is asking policy makers to, as a part of the CAP reform, expand

and modify rules governing the use of intervention to: › Ensure that support prices can be adjusted to take into account relevant factors › Reassure the market that intervention will not be exploited to create artificially high support prices. This system would not prejudice the ability of the Commission to take action in response to emergency situations. Also, an appropriate intervention support price for the future would need to be determined by the Commission via exhaustive econometric analysis. “We feel that supporting and strengthening the safety net will equip the EU with a cost effective instrument for addressing price volatility whilst still giving all stakeholders confidence to expand and take advantage of the growing global demand for high quality dairy products,” concludes Joop Kleibeuker, SecretaryGeneral of EDA.

SGORBATI GROUP: GROWTH THROUGH INNOVATION

T

hirty-year of experience gained through daily contacts with farmers and processing companies operating in the preparation of vegetables and fruit: these are the conditions that have made Sgorbati Group a firm believer that a comprehensive line of processing can not be made up by machinery and equipment of a single manufacturer. There are so many variables and elements involved in a production cycle, that every manufacturer tends to specialize in one of the phases that compose it. This is in order not to dilute their experiences and resources in achieving those levels of absolute performance and reliability that the market currently demands. In view of these considerations, Sgorbati Group was established

SGORBATI FP 1/14.indd 3

to combine experience and relationships with market leading partners, providing technical advice needed to identify the best equipment for each job, and supplying such equipment complete with the necessary links to compose a perfectly integrated and efficient system. Whatever the product to work and the state in which it is to be reduced at the end of processing (cooked, raw, frozen, whole, sliced, in form of sauce or preserve ...), Sgorbati Group, thanks to the freedom from any production constraints, ensures the achievement of all the targets set by the customer, both from operational and economical stand point.

REFRIGERATION EQUIPMENT FOR FOOD STORAGE AND FOR INDUSTRIAL PURPOSES

I

n the space of just 10 years the Italian-based cooling devices manufacturer Zanotti group has more than doubled annual profits, thanks to a successful business plan which was introduced right after the company’s privatisation in 2002. Today the group is ready to exploit the full potential of new markets by extending its international influence as a global player. The Zanotti group designs, develops, manufactures and tests refrigeration equipment for food storage and for industrial purposes, including cooling devices for transporting foodstuff. As a world

ZANOTTI FP 1/14.indd 3

leader in the production of air treatment and cooling solutions, the Italian company puts its success down to a number of key factors, including technological improvement and the introduction of customisable solutions for the needs of each customer. One of the company’s key tactics has been to find the best practical application for our cooling devices. It is very important in the refrigeration sector to meet the particular needs of each customer, and, since we mainly work with food makers, this principle is even more important for our company. Technological research is another strong points.

With over 50 years of specialist experience, ZANOTTI is proud to say that its know-how is reflected in products and everything Zanotti produces. The firm was founded as a familyowned company in 1962. From the very beginning the group has developed its potential as a leader in the field of refrigeration, by introducing new and revolutionary solutions such as, for example, the so-called ‘uniblock’ – a completely self-contained and ready-to-use cooling device for small environments. The company soon began to specialise in the production of domestic and non-domestic refrigeration devices

13/02/14 16.39


PRESERVING INDUSTRY VEGETABLE

for food preservation, and in the meantime its refrigerating systems became bigger and bigger so as to meet the increasing demand of industries. During the 1990s, this trend led to the creation of big multicompressor plants to meet the needs of large-scale retail trade. In the same period, Zanotti also introduced a new line of products for transports – the so-called ‘transblock’. In the past tenth years, the Italian company has seen enormous growth. Today it employs 650 people distributed over eight plants located all around the world. Many things have changed since 2000. Zanotti has become a public company, and the new management has introduced a revolutionary business plan. Thanks to this new plan, the company’s development process has accelerated: for instance, in 2002 our annual turnover was only €30 million, but in 2012 it had reached € 106 million.

Fixed and transport devices It is particularly important for the Zanotti group to offer its customers only the best solutions in terms of quality. That’s way the company has been certified according to the ISO 9001 standard since 1996. Moreover, every single product manufactured by Zanotti in each part of the world is certified according to local parameters for quality, such as the CE parameters in the European countries and the UL parameters in

ZANOTTI FP 1/14.indd 4

MEAT

the US. Under the name of KING of COLD, Zanotti produces and develops refrigerating units to cover the needs of small, medium and large-sized cooling necessities, as well as transport refrigeration. The cooling devices made by the Italian company can be subdivided

The key factor is investing in research that’s because in this sector it’s not important how powerful or well-balanced the cooling device is, but how much the device meets the customer’s requirements. In more than 50 years of activity Zanotti has developed a sort of ‘applied knowhow’ for its products. This has only

into two categories: fixed and transport devices. The first category includes uniblocks, multicompressor plants, condensing units, racks and refrigeration devices for food preservation, while the other category includes diesel uniblocks, battery drive split units and others especially designed for trailer devices for the medium to long distance transportation of food. Up to 10 years ago Zanotti only manufactured fixed devices; then Zanotti decided it was time to diversify and started to make transport devices as well. In hindsight, the decision was very wise. Today, in fact, the two lines of production are equally important for the group, since their growth rate is just the same. Moreover, transport devices were the natural completion of what we call ‘the chain of cold’, which includes all kinds of cooling devices from the initial storage process to the final transport itself. Zanotti is proud to give its customers the possibility to choose the cooling devices that mostly meet their needs. And this is definitely its most exclusive feature. So, customer care is an essential feature to Zanotti.

been made possible by the continuous investments in research and development. The R&D Department is big and well-organised and takes care of company’s applied technological improvement. Companies from the Zanotti Group are designing and manufacturing systems for ice rinks, such as the ones in Courmayeur, Italy or in the Arena of Minsk, Belarus.

An international concern Zanotti’s plants are not only located in Italy. Apart from our two plants in Italy, which include the head office, Zanotti has a very important facility in Germany and a number of new plants located all around the world. More precisely, in the past two years Zanotti has built four new production plants owing to the fact that the output has increased a lot since 2002. The plants are located in the UK, in Spain, in China and in Brazil. This is just the production sites; the international sales network is much wider. In fact, Zanotti’s sales chain covers something like 70 countries worldwide. Zanotti is currently exporting 86 per cent of its production,

13/02/14 16.39


PRESERVING INDUSTRY VEGETABLE

which means that foreign markets are fundamental to the company economic growth. The presence in the European markets is strong, since Zanotti has sales points almost everywhere in Europe.

Green alternative to traditional refrigeration system The know-how Zanotti acquired over 50 years also concerns the environmental aspects involved since the products are developed to provide low energy consumptions and reduced noise levels; as to meet the current technological trends that aim to contain greenhouse gas emissions. In compliance with the international standards on global warning, as the Protocol stipulated in the Japanese city of Kyoto on December 11, 1997, by more than 180 countries at the COP3 conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Changes (UNFCCC) and which became effective in 2005, Zanotti implemented major changes to the manufacture its products. Currently, Zanotti produces units operating with ecological gases such as

propane, propylene, ammonia and CO2. These units are widely used in all sectors of the food industry. Zanotti will continue to invest large sums of money every year to research new technologies that can reduce the amount of harmful emissions released into the atmosphere. Under the energy saving concept, was created the BESTCOPÂŽ technology. It is applied on the motorized condensing units that are manufactured by Zanotti to improve the efficiency and energy consumption levels of the cooling equipment. This basically can be translated into energy savings (from 15 to 20% depending on the different environmental conditions). Zanotti Spa developed the first Italian magnetic cooling at room temperature prototype, the only one of its kind worldwide, in collaboration with the TEC division of the Mechanical Engineering, Energetic, Production, Transportation and Mathematical Models Dept. (DIME) of the University of Genoa. This enabled Zanotti to acquire the basic elements needed to achieve this technology and to apply it by im-

plementing a one of a kind cooling unit. This innovative achievement represents the foundation for the potential engineering development of the product in the future; always seeking better performances and applications that are competitive on the market. The attention devoted to customers and the flexibility of the products are essential characteristics for Zanotti: investing in Research and Development to better meet customer demand by providing more convenient solutions in terms of energy savings and reliability of use is a priority.

dence of the company’s thorough and targeted managerial policy, which aims to have a team of professional people whose main target is offering their customers reliable, accurate and efficient solutions. The company’s technological commitment can be found in a machine called Duett, which is the first dualvision sorting machine for fresh salads proposed by Protec; it enables examining produce on either sides, indicating defects or foreign

bodies. In addition to this, some cameras and an exclusive visual and fluorescent lighting system allows identifying the chlorophyll that all vegetables usually have. Polluting agents, such as plastic, paper, cardboard and insects as well, can be easily kept apart. The particular configuration of the inclined conveyor belt enables separating defective produce by means of air jets. The visual system makes use of the most up-to-date electro-

nic technology and exclusive software for processing images. Duett can be easily put in production lines because not only is it waterproof but also resistant to the usual cleansing sanification products. Protec has always focused on technological innovation and the investments of the past years have enabled the company’s team of engineers and designers to perfect this new technology at one of the most important European producers of IV range produce. To this regard, it is worth of special mention the fact that in addition to being a leading company on the market, Protec is also leader in tomato sorting, and in the past years it has developed high technology for IV range products, such as ready salads, corn, peas, and more. In addition to tomatoes, it is now possible to sort whole fruit, tomato and fruit pulp, extrusions, purees, jams, leaf vegetables (fresh or dehydrated), legumes, diced fruit and potatoes (in almost every form). As a result, a simple product such as a tin of peas or a pot of jam, which people buy everyday, embodies a high-level technology aimed at achieving the highest quality, the one that Protec has always targeted UVA. Protec is happy to present the X-TRI line, optical ari-jet sorter for winemaking grapes. The development is the result of efficient investment. Protec, a company which has been active since

Belt elevators may be needed to connect between different levels. How x-tri functions: the fruit exiting the destemmer is distributed on the vibrating mat, in preparation for feeding the optical unit. The optical sensor recognises the different defects (stalks, leaves, leaf stems, insects and foreign matter) and expels them using a jet of air. The good produce is discharged directly for subsequent processing

into the pressing unit. The optical system also makes it possible to recognise less ripe fruit (having a different colour), which can also be expelled along with the other defects. The defects to be rejected can be programmed using a touch screen. The x-tri line can handle up to approximately 15 t/hr of grapes. The capacity depends on a number of factors, such as the type of grape, the degree of ripeness, the number of defects, etc. For more information, please to contact: Mr. Rocco Sandei (sales manager) r.sandei@ protec-italy.com

Traceable material movements The Archive Manager for SIMATIC PCS 7 with Dairy Functional Toolset records each individual material movement within the systems. When a transfer begins, all relevant information about the source - starting time, quantity reference value or destination - is stored in the user archive. At the end, the finishing time, quantity required and status are also stored. The process visualization allows monitoring and tracking of the corresponding material movements at all times. Host IT systems can also use the interfaces of SIMATIC PCS 7 to access this data. The same quality worldwide If you want to bring innovative products to the market more quickly, then you must ensure consistent product specifications worldwide and at all times. The Interspec module acts as a complete product specification database for the company as a whole and creates ideal prerequisites for intelligent Product Lifecycle Management. It also enables product specifications to be exchanged and standardized on a global basis.

Everything for the dairy industry Milk quality is tested and sorted; the milk undergoes a gentle treatment and an equally gentle transport process; then intermediate products are prepared for possible further processing. And of course, quality is guaranteed at every stage. We supply you with the appropriate range of automation products, systems and solutions for all processing steps.

Achieving goals with perfectly coordinated processes Whether it’s milk, cream, butter, soured milk and yogurt, cream cheese and rennet cheese or concen-

SIEMENS FP 1/14.indd 4

trates and powders, you have to coordinate a large number of process steps en route to the end product. These include heating and cooling, adding cultures, homogenizing and fermenting. You also have to meet numerous simultaneous requirements, which include safe product quality, production optimization, and efficient process line utilization. Throughout all of these responsibilities, we will be there to support you with our solutions that help you achieve your goals safely. Our SIMATIC PCS 7 process control system and software tools with predefined functions provide you with processes that seamlessly integrate and operate economically. MES solutions also use dairy-specific engineering tools and support you with process expertise requiring minimal engineering effort. Further modules complete the range of offerings from high-speed local area networks to high-end process instrumentation. These allow us to provide you with solutions using optimally coordinated components, and allow you to react perfectly to unanticipated incidents and deal efficiently with all production challenges.

Flexible cleaning-in-place (CIP) system for perfectly clean dairy operations Hygiene and cleanliness are absolutely essential for ensuring your dairy products only contain what they should - and this applies throughout the entire production chain. We have the perfect answer to this challenge with our solution for your CIP system automation. Since CIP systems often vary greatly in practice, our flexible CIP system is a standardized software solution that supports easy creation of individual cleaning programs, automatic implementation, and flexible changes as needed. Your operations staff can define relevant program sequences quickly and

easily, and without any programming knowledge. Cleaning types that are typical for dairies and cheese makers are stored in the Online Engineering Tool, enabling quick processing during operation. This added benefit pays off throughout the complete life cycle of your CIP system for dairy. With precise dosing and capabilty for continuous optimization, a flexible CIP system will achieve optimal cleaning and disinfection while saving time and minimizing consumption of cleaning materials. These capabilities are integrated into Siemens SIMATIC PCS 7 system, which means our flexible CIP system for dairy can deliver significant cost savings of between 20 and 30%.

Cut costs with Optimized Packaging Line The filling plant and packaging department represent high cost factors on the path to ready-to-deliver dairy packaging. This results from heterogeneous and isolated solutions. We offer an efficient alternative with our Optimized Packaging Line, the integrated automation solution for dairy filling and packaging lines and machines. The Siemens Optimized Packaging Line integrates filling and packaging systems in a common automation and communication standard. Our packaging standardization and integration of individual machines delivers cost- and energy-savings throughout the entire production line. Integration risks are lower and allow the use of scalable production data acquisition and evaluation systems from Optimized Packaging Line like line overview, diagnostics, OEE, tracking and tracing, and energy recording and management. Moreover, the costs of training, operation, and servicing can be reduced significantly with Optimized Packaging Line. Additionally, dairy packaging line efficiency, productivity, and availability during operation are all noticeably improved.

CHILLED NFC JUICES: THE BERTUZZI APPROACH

T

he market of fruit juice is developing quite rapidly and the share of NFC juices is considerably increasing because of their high quality. In Europe and the US (but also in whole world) 100% juice (not from concentrate) category is showing a strong growth potential. Of particular importance, in this sector, are the chilled juice, fruit juices that are prepared directly from the fresh fruit and then are just chilled and filled or slightly pasteurized and chilled in order to retain all organolectic characteristics. The majority of the chilled juice found in the shops  shelfs is based on orange but other varieties like pineapple, grapefruit, carrots as well as blends (orange-carrot, orangepineapple, carrot-lemon-pineapple etc.) are becoming more and more popular. The main hints for the design of a plant processing fresh fruit into chilled juices are:  Optimization of flow of fruit/juice  Optimization of characteristics of process equipment  Optimization of processing cycles in order to: 1. Decrease processing times 2. Minimize oxidation of the juice 3. Keep high organolectic characteristics  Optimize CIP system to control the

BERTUZZI FP 3/13.indd 3

microbiology of the juice. Some of the machines used for the application are dedicated for a certain type of fruit, for  istance:  Dedicated citrus juice extractors (orange, lemons, grapefruit), in order to minimize the essential oil content in the juice and assure a good control of the pulp.  Deshellers and dedicated presses for pomegranate to produce cloudy or clear juice which importance is considerably increasing for the beneficial health characteristics.  Dedicated pineapple juicing in order to obtain high quality juice only from the edible part of the fruit without contamination with the peel. These are some examples but few. Extractors for juice/puree can be provided for apples, carrots, pears, passion fruit, banana, beets, mango, spinach, asparagus, berries, hawthorns, guava etc. The obtained juice is immediately (blended or not) slightly pasteurized (65-70°C) and chilled before filling. All these examples of equipment have been designed, built and put in operation by Bertuzzi Food Processing Srl, an Italian Company that operates in this field since 1936 and that supplies plants and machines to process fruit and vegetables to produce juice, concentrates, baby food, jam, readymade drinks etc…

HIGHLY REGARDED IN THE IMPORTANT RUSSIAN MARKET Specialist trade fair in Moscow records constant high level of visitor interest

P

ackaging continues to play an important role on the Russian market, and interest in innovative technologies and materials for productions persists. In the food and beverages industry, in the confectionery market, in the cosmetics and the pharmaceuticals sectors, consumer demands with regard to goods and their packaging are becoming increasingly clear, and packaging manufacturers in the Russian Federation are investing in order to improve their market position. The industrial and transport packaging sector, in particular for construction materials, is also gaining in importance. The expansion and modernisation of Russian plants are the consequences, high-performance, energy and resource saving machines are highly regarded. There is also a significant need for innovative packaging materials. Interest in the UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA 2014, the leading Russian Trade Fair for Packaging Machinery, Process Technology, Packaging

APM-Upakovka FP 1/14.indd 3

Production and Packaging, was correspondingly high. This was the 22nd time that the fair, organised by Messe Düsseldorf and its Russian subsidiary OOO Messe Düsseldorf Moscow in collaboration with the Italian event coordinator Centrexpo, was held in Moscow. Along with the concurrent interplastica 2014, International Trade Fair for Plastics and Rubber, it attracted 20,000 trade visitors from Russian and the neighbouring CIS countries. Almost 300 exhibitors presented a comprehensive range of products in a an exhibition space covering around 5,500 square metres net. The companies involved reported interesting and sustainable discussions with both existing and new customers, and concrete deals were struck and contracts signed at the fair. However, in some sectors it became clear that the current weak state of the rouble and the associated economic uncertainty combined with new legal regulations, e.g. for alcoholic be-

verages, had led to a decrease in demand. Erhard Wienkamp, Division Director of Messe Düsseldorf, came to a positive conclusion: “The Russian Federation, with around 143 million inhabitants Europe’s most populous country, is one of the most important markets for food, beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products. Modern packaging solutions are extremely important for these industries; the interest from the experts in the products and services at UPAKOVKA/ UPAK ITALIA was impressive. The fact that, just a few weeks before the start of the world’s leading trade fair interpack from 8-14 May in Düsseldorf, we have experienced constant high visitor interest at UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA shows how highly this event is valued in an important market.” Dr. Guido Corbella, CEO of Centrexpo, backs up this opinion. “Italian providers continue to experience strong interest in the Russian packaging market, which, in most areas, particularly in the strong

14/02/14 15.25


EXHIBITIONS MEETINGS

food and confectionery sectors, is showing steady growth. And with their innovative and extensive range they are faring very well in this region. Exports of food processing and packaging machines from Italy to Russia rose by around 10 per cent in the first eleven months of 2013 compared to the previous year.” For German providers of packaging and food processing machinery, Russia continues to be highly important, lying in third place in the export statistics behind the USA and China. After the increase in previous years, a fall in exports was recorded for 2013: At around 432 million Euro, the total volume of exports of German food processing and packaging machines to Russia in the first eleven months of 2013 was approximately 14 per cent lower than for the same period in the previous year. Confectionery making and bakery machinery as well as meat processing machinery fared better than packaging machines.

APM-Upakovka FP 1/14.indd 4

Vera Fritsche from the VDMA Food Processing and Packaging Machinery Association emphasised the great importance of the Russian market. “The need for modern technology is far from satisfied and there is a plenty of interest. However, at the moment investment is restrained as the Russian consumer has become more subdued. This is particularly noticeable in the field of high proof alcoholic beverages: due to higher taxation and sales restrictions there has been a significant reduction in demand. As a result, the Russian market is currently subject to uncertainties, but continues to offer great opportunities. And thanks to their innovative technology and reliability, German products have a very good reputation; Russian customers value the quality, the comprehensive service and the consulting from the suppliers.” The exhibitors at UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA came from 28 countries; there were official national presen-

tations from Germany, France and Italy. The biggest contingent of exhibitors came from the host country, Russia, with 86 companies, followed by Italy with 71 and Germany with 63 exhibitors. The supporting programme entitled “Future Forum” again proved very popular. In workshops and lectures current issues in the packaging industry were addressed, including solutions for hygienic packaging and current trends in the cardboard and folding box industry, design and marketing aspects as well as financing issues. The new themed area “World of Packaging Materials” also attracted great interest. It focused not only on innovative machinery technology for the packaging industry, but also on the choice of the right packaging material, the design and brand image of packaging. The next UPAKOVKA/UPAK ITALIA is scheduled to take place from 27 January – 30 January 2015 in Moscow and will once again be held in parallel with interplastica.
