Innovative Leak Detection Technology Benefits Map Quality Control
Ishida’s revolutionary AirScan inline system for detecting leaks in MAP packs has greatly enhanced the quality control procedures, as well as reducing labour costs, for a new snack product from M-Back GmbH in Germany which is being produced for dairy giant Meggle.

The "Ofenschnecke" is a small puff pastry product that is available in two versions, filled with a combination of feta cheese and fresh herbs or spinach. The rolls, which need to be warmed up in the oven before consumption, are packed in thermoformed trays each containing two or three products, with fill weights of 180g and 300g.

When the delicate puff pastries are packed, it is not uncommon for product traces to get into the sealing area of the trays. This can result in leaks, which may cause protective gas to escape and draw in moisture. In rare cases, external factors can also cause holes in the film. If such defective packaging is not withheld from distribution, the shelf life can be significantly reduced and the product appearance can suffer.

"We used to perform a visual inspection of smaller batches," says Marcel Schwebler, head of the packaging department at M-Back. "However, this process was no longer practical, as output had increased significantly. So we looked for a fully automatic quality control solution that is 100% reliable."

Ishida AirScan uses laser technology to detect leaks of carbon dioxide (CO2), which is used in many MAP applications. The high-performance system checks each individual tray in less than 20 milliseconds for traces of escaping CO2.

It can reliably find holes with a diameter as small as 0.25 mm, at breath-taking speeds of up to 180 packs per minute. Users will improve their product quality without any adverse impact on products, as the inspection process does not exert any pressure - unlike conventional inline seal testers - and is therefore completely non-destructive. The inline system can be integrated into existing packing lines in a few minutes, without requiring any modifications to existing conveyors.

The Ishida AirScan at M-Back has been placed at the end of the packing line, between other control systems and a labeller. Since its installation, quality assurance has reached new levels. About 3% of packs are identified as having a leak. These are eliminated using an air reject mechanism and transported to a collection chamber for subsequent repacking. M-Back's specification was to reliably identify leaks with a diameter of 0.4 mm or above, and compliance with this is regularly monitored by inserting a needle of the relevant size into packs and testing them. "But we definitely find even smaller holes," Marcel Schwebler reports. "By way of illustration, if you immerse the packs that have been found to be faulty in a water bath, you won't see any gas coming out. In a laboratory, however, we can detect changes in the composition of the gas mixture."

In two-shift mode, the Ishida AirScan checks 3,500 packs of "Ofenschnecken" per hour, which equates to a belt speed of 30 metres per minute. "There's no alternative to the AirScan system when it comes to speed," says Marcel Schwebler. He also highlights the system's user-friendliness and availability, pointing out that it is very easy and safe to operate and requires only minimum maintenance. No changes to settings are needed for product changeovers; only the height-adjustable control arm with the sensor head needs to be adjusted to the different pack heights. Dry cleaning before and after each production batch is completed within ten minutes.

The production data collected can be printed out as shift reports. M-Back also wants to connect the Ishida AirScan system to production analysis software in future. As well as the improvement in quality there is a significant reduction in labour costs, as the two employees who were previously required for visual inspection are now available for other tasks.

Marcel Schwebler's verdict is correspondingly positive: "The Ishida AirScan inline leak detection system is worth its weight in gold to us!"

New In-Mould Packaging Supplier Brand Is Introduced At PPMA Total
A well-known, UK-based niche, In-Mould Labelled (IML) pots supplier Sheep Print is launching a new legal name and brand, Packaging Mode Ltd, at PPMA Total Show 2016.

The Packaging Mode brand will support the company in taking the business to the next levels of sales development and customer success.

Milda Law, Packaging Mode’s Head of UK Operations, said: “Packaging Mode’s team is
eager and proud to present our new brand at Packaging’s premier exhibition. We believe that Packaging Mode will attract customers who want to ensure colour consistency of their own brand, batch after batch, coupled with attentive, personable service and of course exceptional quality IML printed pots.”

Packaging Mode specialises in food-friendly, tamper-evident, In-Mould Labelled (IML) printed pots in sizes from 120ml up to 1180ml. All pots are suitable for hot–filling, while their microwave and freezer-safe features appeal to consumers.

Operations spread across the UK and Lithuania ensure the cost-effectiveness, efficiency and accessibility of all Packaging Mode’s products and services.

With strong support and fulfilment services in the UK and more than 100 employees at the 24/7 operation at the Lithuanian BRC Grade A certificated polypropylene food packaging plant, Packaging Mode ensures that each of their IML printed pot projects run smoothly.

Since 2011, the company has grown rapidly in the UK food industry. As a result, letter ‘M’ embellished on the bottom of each of Packaging Mode’s tamper-evident plastic pots can be found everywhere: from local delis to Tesco’s, from Whole Foods Market to Selfridges. It is now seen on company logo too.

Packaging Mode’s new logo starts with a single point, a dot at the top the ‘crown’ – just as IML pot production starts with a single polypropylene polymer bead then the production process moves to various stages, just as the logo moves to different modes, each represented by a different colour for project initiation, development, fulfilment and delivery until the next cycle begins.

The logo’s blue, grey and soft red palette is trustworthy, stable and inviting attention; in-line with Packaging Mode’s strengths of achieving label colour consistency, on-time deliveries and commitment to earning ‘customers for life’. The new typeface’s modern, clean look and the logo’s elegantly curved shape symbolises the well-balanced proportion of Packaging Mode’s strength and approachability.

Packaging Mode’s new tagline is, ‘Outstanding Printed Pots’. This offers a promise that a customer, regardless of size, will always receive an exceptional quality of service and will be proud of their packaging.

Even though the company’s brand name is changing, its key values remain the same: to serve ever-growing UK food businesses by combining flexibility of service, smart solutions and honest pricing structures.

The company’s initial introductory offer of short, 10,000 units IML printed pot trial runs quickly gained Packaging Mode a loyal customer base varying from large UK-based multiples, wishing to test their new product ranges, to niche food producers, such as Cornish Sea Salt and Oomf - protein porridge manufacturer - to name but a few.

To celebrate the launch of the new Packaging Mode brand, the company will extend their offer of 10, 000 units IML printed pot trial runs during PPMA 2016.
