Videojet CLARiTY™ Laser Controller Helps Manufacturers Achieve Sustainable Improvements
As manufacturers face an increasingly competitive environment, leading operations have embraced lean manufacturing principles to drive uptime and improve yield.

To help manufacturers achieve sustainable improvements in Availability and Quality, Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding marking and printing solutions, has launched its new CLARiTY™ Laser Controller to enhance the capability of its entire range of CO2 and fiber laser marking systems.

The new laser user interface places a powerful tool in the hands of production staff that significantly reduces line set-up and changeover time, aids operators in troubleshooting problems, and helps ensure the right code is placed on the right product time after time.

“Our new CLARiTY™ Laser Controller offers specific functionality to help drive sustainable improvements in Overall Equipment Effectiveness,” said Markus Vetter, Laser Business Unit Manager at Videojet Technologies.

“The line set-up wizard and our suite of productivity tools help operators address the sources of both planned and unplanned downtime. With the onboard suite of Code Assurance features, production supervisors and quality teams can easily create error-proofing rules during job set-up that limit operator input to predefined choices.”

The new CLARiTY™ Laser Controller offers an innovative line set-up wizard to aid maintenance and production staff during both initial line set-up and during product changeovers. The interface provides a visual representation of the laser on the packaging line, eliminating trial and error by configuring the print job to match the required production set-up. “Flexible production lines, by definition, experience more planned downtime than dedicated lines. The ability to compress changeover times releases valuable time to use for production,” explained Vetter.

“Depending on user familiarity, the new line set-up wizard can be between 25-50% faster than our legacy controller interface. Assuming even a modest number of changeovers per day, these time savings add up to meaningful production hours over the year.”

In addition to minimizing planned downtime, the CLARiTY™ Laser Controller offers tools to address the root causes of unplanned downtime. The on-board diagnostics tool presents instant fault information in a logical way with a drill-down option to enable the identification of the most frequent causes of printer faults.

Vetter comments: “The value of the diagnostics tool is the combination of the Printer and Operational Availability metrics along with the underlying pareto of faults. The data is presented in a logical way, helping operations staff confidently identify the root cause of downtime and fix it to achieve sustainable process improvement.”

To address manufacturers’ needs to eliminate sources of poor quality, the CLARiTY™ Laser Controller offers on-board Code Assurance.

“More than half of coding errors are caused by operator error and the most common mistakes include incorrect data entry and job selection. At a minimum, these mistakes can result in excessive scrap or rework, or worse, could result in potential fines or damage to the brand itself,” commented Vetter.

Predefined coding rules can be easily established during set-up that limit the operator’s choices to an allowable range, helping eliminate errors and the resulting impact to quality.

With the addition of the CLARiTY™ Laser Controller, Videojet now offers a common controller interface for all of its main primary and secondary packaging printers.

Vetter added: “A common user interface is a great benefit to operations using more than one printing technology. Operator training can be drastically reduced when common operations like job selection, data entry, and checking printer status can now be learned from a single interface design. Videojet is excited to bring innovation to laser coding, and the CLARiTY™ Laser Controller combines an intuitive user interface and powerful functionality to drive tangible improvements in customer operations.”

ICE Launches Revolutionary Print And Apply Labeller
Coding specialist Interactive Coding Equipment (ICE) is launching a major breakthrough and significant advance in print and apply labelling technology, offering print speeds up to three times faster than traditional machines.

The new ICE Vulcan print and apply labeller is the first of its type to print and directly apply the label to a pack – both traded unit boxes and shrinkwrap packs - in one continuous action without the need for a tamp applicator or compressed air. This means the machine can print at the speed of the line, even when packs are very closely spaced, without ever missing a pack.

Key to the success of the Vulcan is its Intelligent Motion™ drive system, which has eliminated the friction drive operation found in other printer applicator technology. This delivers faster and more accurate labelling with no creasing or label dropping and no chance for labels to become trapped in the system. There are also fewer moving parts, which makes the system more reliable.

The Vulcan incorporates a ‘solid state’ printhead mechanism – a unique feature for thermal label printers – which allows the force on the printhead to be controlled electronically with great accuracy, for enhanced performance and print quality and extended head life. The print head can also be removed and replaced in less than a minute for fast changeovers.

Another feature unique to print and apply labellers is the Vulcan’s solid state ribbon drive which combines high performance and reliability with zero maintenance.

Like all ICE equipment, the Vulcan uses the company’s Clarity intelligent and intuitive interface, which offers ease of set-up and operation and simple integration into factory systems.

The machine’s compact dimensions mean it can fit easily into existing packing lines. It can be positioned to print on any side of a pack and also produce wraparound labels on two sides. Label sizes up to 110mm x 250mm can be accommodated and the machine can print all types of codes, including 2D bar codes, as well as intricate graphics.

“We believe the arrival of the Vulcan has introduced a new era for printer applicator technology, one where labelling is no longer the slowest part of the packing line,” comments ICE director Chris Simpson.

“The benefits of this machine can be seen not just in day-to-day operations but, equally important, on the bottom line, with a fast payback on investment.”

A Perfect Vision 
of Food Production
“Our customers didn’t ask for vision systems,” says Martin Taube, Global Product Manager of Inspection Systems at Bizerba, “but they are under more pressure than ever to produce perfect products as a result of tighter regulations and higher standards. Adding vision was the way to give them what they needed.”

With 144 years of history in the food production business and customers around the world, the company has seen the rise of many technological innovations and process improvements.

The goal here was to put an end to costly product claims from customers. Bizerba uses line scan cameras in its Bizerba Vision System (BVS) to inspect production line food products, like packaged meats — the kind you see in the supermarket. The system inspects the bar code on the label, the text, and even the product itself.

When integrated into labelling lines, the BVS will automatically inspect the label position and the text printed on it as well as the colour of the foil. Packaging sizes and bar codes can also be verified using the system.

“Having the right label applied to the intended package is not something we leave to chance,” says James Farmer, head of Product Development at Bizerba North America. With a background in both mechanical and electrical engineering, he isn’t blind to his customers needs.

The inspection system keeps a sharp eye out for imperfections in packaging and labelling—performing crucial checks that prevent recalls and product claims. Any packaging that fails a producer’s standards is identified quickly and segregated from production.

“One of my favourites so far, has been an application at a Swiss cheese factory. You have all different sizes and shapes, from one millimeter to 90, and you have to deal with all of it.”

For Bizerba, customer service stays high on the priority list. To continue to deliver that meaningful product experience, and make it better and longer lasting, the company is constantly pushing forward.

Keeping things easy and convenient for their customers is part of that list, and is reflected in the systems they develop.

“We’ve created a standard tool set that was tailored to our industry.”

Before, Bizerba didn’t have this standard toolset, and their product was application based.

“Today, our customers can buy a standard piece of equipment, bolt it up, train it, and go.”

“That’s another thing that really sets us apart,” says Taube, “our commitment to a good user interface.” This approach ensures that training requirements for new machinery—or new employees—is as short as possible. It also makes the technology Bizerba packs into their systems more accessible. The user interface makes it easier to take advantage of innovations in machine vision.

Machine vision still has a long runway for food production and inspection. It’s a critical industry with a lot of room to explore and it’s not yet clear how far the technology can go. These challenges are meant to be crossed, and it all comes down to the drive to find the smallest, fastest system that is low cost and delivers the best performance.
