Because they’re smaller, faster, stronger, and a tad less costly than in previous years, expect to see robotics occupying an increasingly important role throughout the packaging function in the next few years.
Omron published a new brochure outlining its inspection solutions for the food and beverage industries. Information details the challenges of package inspection (including food safety, regulatory actions, and space savings), as well as solutions (such as faster changeover and smaller machine footprints).
A number of conversations have kept the subject of China and packaging on my mind. First was a fresh flood of e-mails consisting of Chinese characters that regularly crashed the old Macintosh—the new Macintosh, too.
Individual blister packs are mechanically fed into a flighted conveyor that brings them a short distance downstream to where they are inserted into folding cartons via a Marchesini cartoner. Thermal ink-jet coding, powered by Hewlett-Packard and supplied by Nutec, code inspection, also part of the Nutec system, and checkweighing (from Optima) all follow.
From a feed bowl, tablets are fed into formed blisters via a Cam Pak thermoform/fill/seal system. Once lidding is applied, blister packs move through an inspection station from SEA Vision (represented in the U.S. by Calia Technical Inc.) and then on to a punch station.
