New Nutrition Facts Regulations 2020

Array ( [post_title] => New Nutrition Facts Regulations 2020 [post_content] =>

What You Need to Know

In May 2016 the FDA published new rules for the Nutrition Facts label for packaged foods. The new rules reflect new scientific information that links consumers diet to chronic diseases. The new rules will change the information on the Nutrition Facts label allowing consumers to make better informed food choices.

Even though the new rules and changes were published in 2016, the FDA gave manufactures dates of when theses changes need to be completed by. As 2020 approaches some of those dates are getting closer and manufactures need to be aware that by these indicated dates the new Nutrition Facts label needs to be updated on their products.

What are the Changes

The overall look of the Nutrition Facts label is remaining the same but there are some important updates to be aware of. These changes include:

  1. Increase type size for “Calories,” “serving per container,” and “Serving size” declaration.
  2. Bolding the number of calories and the “Serving size” declaration.
  3. Declaring the actual amount, in addition to percent Daily Value of Vitamin D, calcium, iron and potassium.
  4. The footnote is changing and should now read: “*The % Daily Value tells you how much a nutrient in a serving of food contributes to a daily diet. 2,000 calories a day is used for general nutrition advice.”
  5. “Added sugars” should now include the amount in grams and in percent daily value.
  6. The list of nutrients is changing to Vitamin D, potassium, calcium and iron.
  7. Vitamin A and C are no longer required but if manufactures wish to list more nutrients, they can include more then just the four required.
  8. “Total fat,” “Saturated Fat,” and “Trans Fat” are still required but the “Calories from Fat” is being removed.
  9. Daily values of nutrients like sodium, dietary fiber and Vitamin D are being updated based on new scientific evidence.
  10. Serving sizes are being updated because they have changed since the last serving size requirements were published.
  11. Packaging that is between one and two servings will be required to be labeled as one serving.
  12. Certain products that are require a “dual column” if they are larger than one serving but could be consumed in one serving or multiple servings The “dual column” will indicated the amount of calories and nutrients on both a “per serving” and “per package”/”per unit” basis.

Why the Change

The current Nutrition Facts label is more then 20 years old. The last requirements were published in 1993. Based on updated scientific research, new nutrition and public health research, more recent dietary recommendations from expert groups and input from the public, the FDA has updated the requirements. The updates will give consumers access to more recent and accurate nutritional information about the foods they are eating.

Dates to know

The Following dates were set by the FDA. Manufactures have until theses dates to comply.

How to Get Your Product Tested to Ensure Proper Changes are Made

If you would like more information on the new Nutrition Facts label rules, visit the FDA website. Make sure that you have the right information on your products Nutrition Facts label by getting a sample of your product tested at an FDA certified laboratory. The names and locations of appropriate laboratories can be found in publications such as, Association of Official Analytical Chemists (AOAC), the American Association of Cereal Chemists (AACC), the American Oil Chemists Society (AOCS), and the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), and other numerous trade journals and similar publications. Michigan State University has laboratories with the capability of testing food to get the information needed for Nutrition Facts labels.

Reduce Bubbling for Durable Labels

Array ( [post_title] => Reduce Bubbling for Durable Labels [post_content] =>

What are Egress Labels?

Wrinkles in bubbles in labels can affect a products appearance. Bubbling issues can occur with injection-molded plastics products. These products are commonly used in the durable goods industry.

Air Egress labels allow air to flow freely between a product and a label. This allows air from outgassing and entrapment to escape quickly. This process is created in the substrate using a micro-embossed texture to create an even finish. This complex texture that is created in the adhesive allows any trapped air to escape when the label is applied to a products surface. 

Stray bubbles no longer have a chance to ruin the smooth application your label requires. Heat causes outgassing and bubbling of labels, but micro-embossed materials allow those bubbles to escape and keep the surface of the label smooth throughout the entire label’s lifetime. Labels on injection-molded plastics are more prone to bubbles or wrinkles but with Air Egress labels this is no longer a concern. Air Egress materials are durable and long lasting. They allow outgasses to escape even after environmental aging over time.

Features and Benefits

 

Uses

Air Egress labels can be used on a variety of durable labeling applications. Automotive labels, under hood applications, water heaters, lawn equipment, recreational vehicles and chemical drums for outdoor applications are just some of the products that Air Egress labels can be used on. Some examples of labels include, product identification labels, barcodes and rating labels, work in progress labels, property identification and asset tags, and durable goods labeling.

Whitlam works with different substrate suppliers to ensure that we meet your label requirements. We understand the importance of branding and why it is important to make sure that your label meets your brand standards. Whitlam cares about your products appearance. Contact us today if you would like more information about how we can help you have good quality labels on your products.

What are Egress Labels?

Wrinkles in bubbles in labels can affect a products appearance. Bubbling issues can occur with injection-molded plastics products. These products are commonly used in the durable goods industry.

Air Egress labels allow air to flow freely between a product and a label. This allows air from outgassing and entrapment to escape quickly. This process is created in the substrate using a micro-embossed texture to create an even finish. This complex texture that is created in the adhesive allows any trapped air to escape when the label is applied to a products surface. 

Stray bubbles no longer have a chance to ruin the smooth application your label requires. Heat causes outgassing and bubbling of labels, but micro-embossed materials allow those bubbles to escape and keep the surface of the label smooth throughout the entire label’s lifetime. Labels on injection-molded plastics are more prone to bubbles or wrinkles but with Air Egress labels this is no longer a concern. Air Egress materials are durable and long lasting. They allow outgasses to escape even after environmental aging over time.

Features and Benefits

 

Uses

Air Egress labels can be used on a variety of durable labeling applications. Automotive labels, under hood applications, water heaters, lawn equipment, recreational vehicles and chemical drums for outdoor applications are just some of the products that Air Egress labels can be used on. Some examples of labels include, product identification labels, barcodes and rating labels, work in progress labels, property identification and asset tags, and durable goods labeling.

Brand Security

Tamper

At Whitlam we understand that it is important to protect your brand. Over a billion dollars is spent annually by US Fortune 500 companies to fight counterfeiting, protect brand names and trademarks. Every year automotive and aircraft part manufacturers lose billions of dollars in revenue to counterfeit parts. Since internet shopping has become so popular, counterfeit products are at its highest. Companies like International Trademark Association is estimating that the total global economic value of counterfeiting could reach $2.3 trillion by 2022. Most counterfeit items are sold online and bought by consumers and wholesalers. Counterfeiters are the most significant competitors in most markets.

Whitlam Group is determined to work with brand owners to come up with a solution that protects their brand, works best for them, and is cost-effective. Whitlam will combine low and high security elements together to enhance protection for brand owners and use different types of technology to maximize their protection. Spending extra for a label that will help protect your brand can be well worth the money if it stops counterfeiters from selling your product and stealing your money.

The Problem

It is important to understand why brand owners need to protect themselves from counterfeiting because not only is it illegal it can also be very dangerous. Counterfeit products are not made to the same standards which can result in devastating accidents, mechanical malfunctions, health and safety risks, and a loss of positive reputation. Consumers, wholesalers, and manufactures are all at risk. 

When consumers purchase counterfeit products, they may be at a loss when it comes to money, if the product doesn’t work. However, the main concern for consumers isn’t the loss of money but rather the health and safety risks that they may encounter when using counterfeit products. Some goods that consumers can purchase that may be counterfeit include automotive parts, power tools, electrical products, games, pharmaceuticals and other over-the-counter medications, baby formula, toys, clothes, shoes, accessories, cosmetics, outdoor equipment and much more. If a consumer uses any of these counterfeit items then they can be at risk for medical issues, mechanical malfunctions or even fatal consequences. 

Manufactures and Wholesalers face the risk of lawsuits and liability costs. Even if they are unaware that they are selling a counterfeited product they are still held accountable. Counterfeit products can also lead to wholesalers issuing a recall which can cost them millions of dollars as well. Manufactures and Wholesalers can both lose their positive brand reputation if consumers are unaware, they bought a counterfeit product. If a brands reputation is ruined by counterfeit products it can be very difficult to repair the damage and regain a positive brand reputation.

Solutions

There are hundreds of different security features that can be added to your brand, labels and packaging to help protect your products. The best time to place a security featured label on products is before the products leaves the manufacturing facility. Tamper evident, authentication and trace security labels are just a few options that brand owners have, to help secure their products. Multiple solutions can be combined to achieve maximum protection.

Tamper evident labels are printed on destructible substrates which can change appearance or are destroyed when tampering such as removing or transferring the label occurs. If a product was tampered with and the label was removed or transferred, a tamper evident label with show proof that the product was tampered. One way the label will do this is by ripping into pieces and leaving evidence behind on the product showing that it was tampered with. Sometimes this can be strips of the label itself or it can be the word “void” repeated over the area that the label was adhered to.

Authentication labels incorporate combinations of security features that can be visually seen or identified and easy to verify. These security features can be checked by anyone within the supply chain. Visual authentication includes barcodes, special inks, holograms, watermarks, embossing and more. Authentication labels can also contain hidden security features. Some hidden features include invisible images or text, hidden barcodes, digital authentication, markers, retro reflective technology, optical variable devices and more. Hidden features can be verified by special lighting, magnification, technology and software. Authentication labels are nearly impossible to copy or imitate.

A third option for brand security is track and trace labels. These labels are unique product identification solutions. Track and trace features can be visual or hidden and can be added to products, pallets or shipping containers. This unique marker can be monitored through the whole process of the supply chain. This feature requires special management data technology and software. Track and Trace solutions allows products to be traced from production all the way down the supply chain till the product reaches the consumers hands which allows the consumer to verify where the product came from and where it traveled from the time it left the manufacturing facility. With this information the consumer will be able to identify if the product was tampered with and if the product is authentic.

How to get Started

Protecting your brand by using brand security labels and packaging is important. It helps with verifying that products being sold to consumers are authentic and builds customer confidence and brand loyalty. Brand security assists with detecting counterfeit products high in the supply chain before the products reach the consumer.

Whitlam is here to help you find a solution. We specialize in brand security options such as tamper evident labels, authentication labels, and track and trace labels. These options can include but are not limited to part marking codes, holograms, specialty inks, RFID, QR codes, micro text, UV indicator, invisible text or images, special die-cuts, destructible substrates and more.

Replacing Engraved Plates with Labels

Array ( [post_title] => Replacing Engraved Plates with Labels [post_content] =>

Face Plate

Process of Engraving Plates

Engraved name plates are used in the automotive and industrial industries. Some substrates that are used for engraved name plates are aluminum, brass, polycarbonate, stainless steel and more.

Etching and mechanical engraving are processes used when creating engraved name plates. Mechanical engraving uses a high-speed rotary cutting tool to cut into the surface of the name plate. After the engraving process an enamel paint is used to fill in the engraved areas.

Etching uses acid resistant coating in its process to burn away the areas that are engraved. Once the etching process is completed then an enamel paint is used to seal and cure the name plate. The plate is then soaked, cleaned and a clear coat-lacquered is applied for extra protection. This process is used to meet certain requirements such as depth of letters into the surface of the name plate.

An Alternative Solution

All the different processes and special tools used when created an engraved nameplate can be very costly. When using the etching process, the chemicals used can be harmful to the environment.

Labels can be substituted for all of these processes as long as there is not any depth requirements. Label substrates can be extremely durable and more affordable. Label substrates can be less costly then the tooling or chemicals used in the mechanical engraving and etching processes.

Using a label may open the door for more options for brand security. Label specifications can be added to make the label self-destructive or include other security features. Some of these security features may not be achievable from the engraving processes.

Labels can be placed on any surface. A metal plate may still be used for your process but instead of having the plate engraved you can place a label on the plate. Foam adhesives that are used to attach name plates to desired surfaces can be used with labels as well.

Choosing a label over engraving may allow you to be more creative in your design of the label as well. Some of the more detail logos or designs that you would like to include on your name plate might not be achievable with etching and mechanical engraving but will be achievable with the design of a label.

Process of Engraving Plates

Engraved name plates are used in the automotive and industrial industries. Some substrates that are used for engraved name plates are aluminum, brass, polycarbonate, stainless steel and more.

Etching and mechanical engraving are processes used when creating engraved name plates. Mechanical engraving uses a high-speed rotary cutting tool to cut into the surface of the name plate. After the engraving process an enamel paint is used to fill in the engraved areas.

Etching uses acid resistant coating in its process to burn away the areas that are engraved. Once the etching process is completed then an enamel paint is used to seal and cure the name plate. The plate is then soaked, cleaned and a clear coat-lacquered is applied for extra protection. This process is used to meet certain requirements such as depth of letters into the surface of the name plate.

An Alternative Solution

All the different processes and special tools used when created an engraved nameplate can be very costly. When using the etching process, the chemicals used can be harmful to the environment.

Labels can be substituted for all of these processes as long as there is not any depth requirements. Label substrates can be extremely durable and more affordable. Label substrates can be less costly then the tooling or chemicals used in the mechanical engraving and etching processes.

Using a label may open the door for more options for brand security. Label specifications can be added to make the label self-destructive or include other security features. Some of these security features may not be achievable from the engraving processes.

Labels can be placed on any surface. A metal plate may still be used for your process but instead of having the plate engraved you can place a label on the plate. Foam adhesives that are used to attach name plates to desired surfaces can be used with labels as well.

Choosing a label over engraving may allow you to be more creative in your design of the label as well. Some of the more detail logos or designs that you would like to include on your name plate might not be achievable with etching and mechanical engraving but will be achievable with the design of a label.

Cell Sequence Labels

What are Returnable & Reusable Packaging/Shipping Containers?

In today’s world recycling is very important. Many companies are trying to find new ways to protect the environment by reusing and recycling products or materials. Some companies have been doing this by using returnable and reusable packaging and shipping containers.

These containers are made from different materials depending on the product that will be being shipped in them to ensure quality, durability and safety. They can be split into sections to ship multiple parts in the same shipping containers and are separated by walls that are sometimes adjustable.

Cell Sequence Labels in use

Uses

Sometimes these shipping containers can also be used for sequencing racks. Using the same container for a sequencing rack and shipping container can be very cost efficient. In the automotive industry these containers can be used for shipping products such as engines or car doors from supplier to assembly plants. Once the parts that are shipped in a container are taken out and used then the container can be sent back to the supplier to be re-used for the next shipment.

Some of the industries that these are used in are industrial, farming, manufacturing, distributing, warehousing, consumer goods and logistics organizations.

Labeling

At Whitlam Group we do supply labels to help define and separate each compartment in these containers. We call these labels Cell Sequencing labels or Rack labels. These cell/rack labels are variable meaning each cell/rack in a container has a separate number and barcode on them. This will allow you to identify each part individually.

With our in-house lab capabilities, we can test these labels to ensure they will be durable on any type of container. We have various substrates and are able to find the adhesive and material combinations that will be right for you.

Whitlam Group strives to protect the environment and creating labels to help companies be able to label their parts in order to use these reusable/returnable containers is something we take pride in.

Labels for Returnable & Reusable Packaging/Shipping Containers

What are Returnable & Reusable Packaging/Shipping Containers?

In today’s world recycling is very important. Many companies are trying to find new ways to protect the environment by reusing and recycling products or materials. Some companies have been doing this by using returnable and reusable packaging and shipping containers.

These containers are made from different materials depending on the product that will be being shipped in them to ensure quality, durability and safety. They can be split into sections to ship multiple parts in the same shipping containers and are separated by walls that are sometimes adjustable.

Uses

Sometimes these shipping containers can also be used for sequencing racks. Using the same container for a sequencing rack and shipping container can be very cost efficient. In the automotive industry these containers can be used for shipping products such as engines or car doors from supplier to assembly plants. Once the parts that are shipped in a container are taken out and used then the container can be sent back to the supplier to be re-used for the next shipment.

Some of the industries that these are used in are industrial, farming, manufacturing, distributing, warehousing, consumer goods and logistics organizations.

Labeling

At Whitlam Group we do supply labels to help define and separate each compartment in these containers. We call these labels Cell Sequencing labels or Rack labels. These cell/rack labels are variable meaning each cell/rack in a container has a separate number and barcode on them. This will allow you to identify each part individually.

With our in-house lab capabilities, we can test these labels to ensure they will be durable on any type of container. We have various substrates and are able to find the adhesive and material combinations that will be right for you.

Whitlam Group strives to protect the environment and creating labels to help companies be able to label their parts in order to use these reusable/returnable containers is something we take pride in.

Masked Labels

Whitlam Group Masked Label

Are you in need of the perfect solution for a label with essential information that can withstand a production process?  Our mask label is made from high-performance materials that can sustain various chemicals, paint baths, harsh temperatures and environmental conditions. These high performance layers can then be peeled off to remove and uncover your essential information unharmed.

Many companies use labels to identify or track items, sub-assemblies, parts, supplies etc. during their manufacturing processes. Some manufacturing processes include harsh environments. These could be extreme temperatures, chemical baths, painting, powder-coating, electro-coating (e-coat) etc.

Protecting Your Label

One type of label the Whitlam Group offers are known as “Masked” labels. Masked labels have at least two layers. The bottom layer is printed with the information necessary to facilitate the production process. This is often an identifying barcode, 2D Matrix Code, or part number. These numbers or codes can be constant, sequential, or random. The top layer is a clear plastic material through which the printed information on the base layer is visible. If the part goes through a painting or coating process that obscures the label, the top layer (mask) can be peeled away thus exposing the information on the bottom layer of the label. This allows identification of the part during subsequent processing without having the expense or effort of applying a new label. The part maintains its identity.

Masks can also be used as installation aids for applying decorative badging. They provide consistent spacing, proper orientation, and location to reference points.

Some masks can permit application of multi-part labels. Designed appropriately for a process, these masks allow for removal of certain sections of multi-part labels at specific steps of a process and still leave other sections of the multi-part label intact for removal at later steps in the process.

When designing Masked labels, it is important to understand the process parameters the parts and labels will be subjected to during the manufacturing processes and part use. It is important that the materials and the adhesives selected are appropriate so as to perform properly. The mask must stay on the base layer of the label, but not become permanently bonded to the base layer as a result of exposure to processing conditions. It is critical the mask and the base layer be compatible with each other.

The Whitlam Group can work with your process and product experts to determine the right combination of materials to develop a Masked label for your needs.

Subsurface Graphics

Many labels are used in very challenging environments and need to be durable enough to last the lifetime of the product.

Labels used for automotive and durable applications are two specific markets that require durability and longevity in their labels. These labels may be exposed to extreme heat, cold, moisture, chemicals, abrasion, weather, etc. One of the printing methods used by Whitlam Group to create durable labels is Subsurface printing.

Subsurface printing is when the inks are printed on the underside of a clear plastic film. The images on the printing plates are configured so that when the label is viewed from the top side of the clear film, the image appears as desired. An adhesive layer with a liner backing is applied to the printed inks. Different adhesives are available, as appropriate, for a given label’s use. The web is flipped-over (depending on the type of press) and the face-stock material is then die-cut to the proper size of the label. Because the inks are applied to the bottom side of the plastic film, the film provides protection to the inks, thus creating a durable label.

A 2 mil clear Polyester film is a common material for Subsurface printing. When Subsurface printing, it is important to know the detailed specifications of the materials to ensure that the film is optimized for the Subsurface printing process, the inks, and the environment where the label will be used.

Success Story from Kollmorgen – To get the casting die oscillating

What’s new in continuous casting: SMS Concast develops actuator-driven oscillation with direct drives by Kollmorgen

Success Story from Kollmorgen - To get the casting die oscillating

Achieve greater quality with KBM motors while also reducing maintenance costs

Billet, bloom, slab: Shape is given to the molten steel by the casting die in continuous casting. The casting die can be compared to a mold made of water-cooled copper in which targeted extraction of heat causes the steel to form an outer skin – at first as delicate as a raw egg. So that the freshly formed strand shell does not adhere to the copper wall during this process, the casting die oscillates along the casting plane. An oscillation mechanism helps with this. For the operation of these oscillation mechanisms, SMS Concast developed an electromotive solution with direct drive in an intensive co-engineering process with KOLLMORGEN. CONDRIVE is based on winding-optimized KBM motors – and has what it takes to revolutionize the form process in continuous casting.

Continuous casting represents the second revolution in steel production, after the discovery of the oxygen steel-making process. The discovery of the oscillating casting die was ground-breaking in the economic success of the process, explains Dino Kabosch, technology developer at SMS Concast AG: The Zürich-based company has been inextricably linked with continuous casting, more or less from its inception. It was Irving Rossi, steel pioneer and father of strand casting, who founded Concast AG in 1954. The SMS Group, to which Concast AG now belongs, achieves a global annual turnover of approx. three billion euros.

Nothing is allowed to adhere

With CONDRIVE, SMS Concast has brought a solution onto the market which makes the oscillation of the casting die more effective and easier to regulate. The basis is formed by the direct drive technology from the KBM motor kits by KOLLMORGEN. A technically demanding joint phase of engineering took place beforehand. The result of this was the development of a drive solution which could create highly flexible oscillation profiles. The current electromechanical drive systems allow the frequency to be regulated online alone, while the amplitude is provided by the mechanical system.

The significance of the patented process will become clear when taking a closer look at the continuous casting process. The molten steel is delivered in batches in pans to the strand casting system. The steel, under the exclusion of air, flows from the pan into a tundish. This tundish is there is distribute the steel into different strands and also to act as an interim buffer when changing pans. The steel is dispensed via the tundish into one to eight strands and flows over the control device into the casting dies. This is where the molding process takes place. Either a casting powder or an oil is added to the surface of the molten steel in the casting die. The casting powder or oil, which is melted to a slag, amongst other things has the important task of ensuring lubrication between the strand shell forming on the wall of the casting die and the water-cooled casting die. Because of this lubricant effect and the relative movement between the strand shell and the casting die due to the oscillation, the soft, delicate strand shell does not continue to adhere to the casting die and can be continuously pulled out of the casting die “in a strand”.

This area is crucial for the high quality and, above all, operationally safe continuous casting. The oscillation generated by the KOLLMORGEN direct drives must be created with such polished a movement such that while pulling off the strand, there must be sufficient casting powder drawn into the gap between the strand shell and the wall of the casting die to minimize the effect of friction on the strand shell.

In addition to this, the tensile force resulting from the movement profile must not lead to the just-formed shell being torn up again. If this were the case, molten steel would pour out into the system – leading to immediate interruption of casting and subsequent production outage.

As a rule, a sinusoidal oscillation process is employed. What is crucial for this is the time window in which the oscillating, downward-moving, casting die overtakes the steel strand which is also moving downwards, before the forming unit at the lower peak travels back up.

This overtaking process is known as “negative strip time” and defines the time in which the casting powder is able to lie on outer wall of the steel while being pulled off. The oscillating movement of the casting die requires that the fine waves form on the surface of the strand, known as oscillation marks.

Adjustable oscillation heights

Success Story from Kollmorgen - To get the casting die oscillatingThe ideal frequency at which the casting die should be oscillating in the continuous casting and, above all, at which amplitude, depends on factors such as the quality of the steel, the formulation, the production speed or even the casting die form. The negative strip time typically lies in a time window between 0.08 and 0.18 seconds. “If we don’t have this time, we cannot continue to cast. Then the entire mechanics fail to function – that is the friction characteristics between the copper and steel,” explains Kabosch, and he likens it to liquid chocolate cake sticking to the baking sheet and, when removed from the tin, it breaks apart. The interplay between friction force or friction coefficient and the ferrostatic pressure, which acts vertically on the inside of the casting die due to the molten steel, is fragile. “At this point, we use the direct drives by KOLLMORGEN,” explains the SMS Concast developer. The transfer of mechanical processes into a software-based Motion Control opens up possibilities of effectively implementing new movement curves and being able to very flexibly and individually adjust the movement to the differing casting conditions.

The particular advantage is that the frequency, the amplitude and the wave form of the oscillation can be changed. The amplitude is crucial for distance covered within a time window. “Converting a mechanical eccentric shaft for this is only possible during shutdown and takes a long time,” notes Dino Kabosch. Also compared to hydraulic drives for oscillation, the CONDRIVE scores highly since the actuator solution does not require a hydraulic infrastructure and also comes with significantly lower maintenance costs.

Direct drive technology by KBM motors: Compact size

The torque motors specially adjusted by KOLLMORGEN to the needs of this application originate from the KBM kit. In the 118 installation size, the drives deliver torques of 660 Nm and a peak torque of 1000 Nm. The drive is thus in a position to precisely get the oscillation bulk, weighing between 3.5 and 7 tons, into oscillation. On the control side, SMS Concast also opts for KOLLMORGEN – in this case in the design of the S700 servo amplifiers.

KBM Direct Drive MotorWhat is unique about the production of oscillation is the fact the oscillation is not generated by a revolving eccentric shaft in a rotative continuous operation, but by the recurrent reversing motions of the motor. What may seem simple at first glance, has brought about very demanding challenges for engineering. The constant reversing leads to questions such as how the heat loss is effectively diverted. Other questions relating to lubrication also emerge.

Since the motor is no longer making complete revolutions, the grease for standard lubricated-for-life bearings is inevitably suppressed by the rolling elements. The effect of the lubrication is thus no longer guaranteed.

Finally, these three basic conditions have contributed towards KOLLMORGEN equipping the KBM motor with a water cooling system so that the heat loss can be effectively diverted. For the long-term effective lubrication of the few bearings of the gearless direct drives, stators and rotors are completely enclosed in an oil bath – which ultimately also securely protects the encapsulated unit against metal dust.

Another advantage results from the eradication of the drive – namely with an eye on continuous condition monitoring of the system and processes. By the KBM motor driving the process without the influence of disruptive gear effects such as play or friction, this ensures an extremely precise control of processes while also very directly and precisely monitoring the process due to the motor data. It is above all key motor data such as power and revolutions which allows the processes to be precisely analyzed – up to and including the incorporation into IoT systems.
Potential for modernizations

“The work has been worth it” – with regard to the findings garnered from a continuous casting machine at Swiss Steel AG, Dino Kabosch is delighted about this new oscillation process. “Two years of development have gone into this – the CONDRIVE is operating very well. Almost too well. We are still looking for faults in the mechanics, but we can’t find any. It’s a great feeling.”

Currently, CONDRIVE is being developed into a sought-after series product which, thanks to its simple integration and high availability, is very well suited to the modernization of existing continuous casting machines.

Contracts in Spain, India and China mark the success of the solution with the actuator direct drive technology by KOLLMORGEN inside.
Conclusion

With CONDRIVE, SMS Concast has developed a system which, due to the encapsulated direct drives from the KBM motor kit by KOLLMORGEN, is virtually maintenance-free. The innovation offers an excellent precision for controlling the oscillation of the casting die. In contrast to the other drive systems for oscillations (including hydraulic booster cylinders), CONDRIVE combines a simple design with online settings and monitoring of the oscillation curves.

What’s new in continuous casting: SMS Concast develops actuator-driven oscillation with direct drives by Kollmorgen

Success Story from Kollmorgen – To get the casting die oscillating

Achieve greater quality with KBM motors while also reducing maintenance costs

Billet, bloom, slab: Shape is given to the molten steel by the casting die in continuous casting. The casting die can be compared to a mold made of water-cooled copper in which targeted extraction of heat causes the steel to form an outer skin – at first as delicate as a raw egg. So that the freshly formed strand shell does not adhere to the copper wall during this process, the casting die oscillates along the casting plane. An oscillation mechanism helps with this. For the operation of these oscillation mechanisms, SMS Concast developed an electromotive solution with direct drive in an intensive co-engineering process with KOLLMORGEN. CONDRIVE is based on winding-optimized KBM motors – and has what it takes to revolutionize the form process in continuous casting.

Continuous casting represents the second revolution in steel production, after the discovery of the oxygen steel-making process. The discovery of the oscillating casting die was ground-breaking in the economic success of the process, explains Dino Kabosch, technology developer at SMS Concast AG: The Zürich-based company has been inextricably linked with continuous casting, more or less from its inception. It was Irving Rossi, steel pioneer and father of strand casting, who founded Concast AG in 1954. The SMS Group, to which Concast AG now belongs, achieves a global annual turnover of approx. three billion euros.

Nothing is allowed to adhere

With CONDRIVE, SMS Concast has brought a solution onto the market which makes the oscillation of the casting die more effective and easier to regulate. The basis is formed by the direct drive technology from the KBM motor kits by KOLLMORGEN. A technically demanding joint phase of engineering took place beforehand. The result of this was the development of a drive solution which could create highly flexible oscillation profiles. The current electromechanical drive systems allow the frequency to be regulated online alone, while the amplitude is provided by the mechanical system.

The significance of the patented process will become clear when taking a closer look at the continuous casting process. The molten steel is delivered in batches in pans to the strand casting system. The steel, under the exclusion of air, flows from the pan into a tundish. This tundish is there is distribute the steel into different strands and also to act as an interim buffer when changing pans. The steel is dispensed via the tundish into one to eight strands and flows over the control device into the casting dies. This is where the molding process takes place. Either a casting powder or an oil is added to the surface of the molten steel in the casting die. The casting powder or oil, which is melted to a slag, amongst other things has the important task of ensuring lubrication between the strand shell forming on the wall of the casting die and the water-cooled casting die. Because of this lubricant effect and the relative movement between the strand shell and the casting die due to the oscillation, the soft, delicate strand shell does not continue to adhere to the casting die and can be continuously pulled out of the casting die “in a strand”.

This area is crucial for the high quality and, above all, operationally safe continuous casting. The oscillation generated by the KOLLMORGEN direct drives must be created with such polished a movement such that while pulling off the strand, there must be sufficient casting powder drawn into the gap between the strand shell and the wall of the casting die to minimize the effect of friction on the strand shell.

In addition to this, the tensile force resulting from the movement profile must not lead to the just-formed shell being torn up again. If this were the case, molten steel would pour out into the system – leading to immediate interruption of casting and subsequent production outage.

As a rule, a sinusoidal oscillation process is employed. What is crucial for this is the time window in which the oscillating, downward-moving, casting die overtakes the steel strand which is also moving downwards, before the forming unit at the lower peak travels back up.

This overtaking process is known as “negative strip time” and defines the time in which the casting powder is able to lie on outer wall of the steel while being pulled off. The oscillating movement of the casting die requires that the fine waves form on the surface of the strand, known as oscillation marks.

Adjustable oscillation heights

Success Story from Kollmorgen - To get the casting die oscillatingThe ideal frequency at which the casting die should be oscillating in the continuous casting and, above all, at which amplitude, depends on factors such as the quality of the steel, the formulation, the production speed or even the casting die form. The negative strip time typically lies in a time window between 0.08 and 0.18 seconds. “If we don’t have this time, we cannot continue to cast. Then the entire mechanics fail to function – that is the friction characteristics between the copper and steel,” explains Kabosch, and he likens it to liquid chocolate cake sticking to the baking sheet and, when removed from the tin, it breaks apart. The interplay between friction force or friction coefficient and the ferrostatic pressure, which acts vertically on the inside of the casting die due to the molten steel, is fragile. “At this point, we use the direct drives by KOLLMORGEN,” explains the SMS Concast developer. The transfer of mechanical processes into a software-based Motion Control opens up possibilities of effectively implementing new movement curves and being able to very flexibly and individually adjust the movement to the differing casting conditions.

The particular advantage is that the frequency, the amplitude and the wave form of the oscillation can be changed. The amplitude is crucial for distance covered within a time window. “Converting a mechanical eccentric shaft for this is only possible during shutdown and takes a long time,” notes Dino Kabosch. Also compared to hydraulic drives for oscillation, the CONDRIVE scores highly since the actuator solution does not require a hydraulic infrastructure and also comes with significantly lower maintenance costs.

Direct drive technology by KBM motors: Compact size

The torque motors specially adjusted by KOLLMORGEN to the needs of this application originate from the KBM kit. In the 118 installation size, the drives deliver torques of 660 Nm and a peak torque of 1000 Nm. The drive is thus in a position to precisely get the oscillation bulk, weighing between 3.5 and 7 tons, into oscillation. On the control side, SMS Concast also opts for KOLLMORGEN – in this case in the design of the S700 servo amplifiers.

KBM Direct Drive MotorWhat is unique about the production of oscillation is the fact the oscillation is not generated by a revolving eccentric shaft in a rotative continuous operation, but by the recurrent reversing motions of the motor. What may seem simple at first glance, has brought about very demanding challenges for engineering. The constant reversing leads to questions such as how the heat loss is effectively diverted. Other questions relating to lubrication also emerge.

Since the motor is no longer making complete revolutions, the grease for standard lubricated-for-life bearings is inevitably suppressed by the rolling elements. The effect of the lubrication is thus no longer guaranteed.

Finally, these three basic conditions have contributed towards KOLLMORGEN equipping the KBM motor with a water cooling system so that the heat loss can be effectively diverted. For the long-term effective lubrication of the few bearings of the gearless direct drives, stators and rotors are completely enclosed in an oil bath – which ultimately also securely protects the encapsulated unit against metal dust.

Another advantage results from the eradication of the drive – namely with an eye on continuous condition monitoring of the system and processes. By the KBM motor driving the process without the influence of disruptive gear effects such as play or friction, this ensures an extremely precise control of processes while also very directly and precisely monitoring the process due to the motor data. It is above all key motor data such as power and revolutions which allows the processes to be precisely analyzed – up to and including the incorporation into IoT systems.
Potential for modernizations

“The work has been worth it” – with regard to the findings garnered from a continuous casting machine at Swiss Steel AG, Dino Kabosch is delighted about this new oscillation process. “Two years of development have gone into this – the CONDRIVE is operating very well. Almost too well. We are still looking for faults in the mechanics, but we can’t find any. It’s a great feeling.”

Currently, CONDRIVE is being developed into a sought-after series product which, thanks to its simple integration and high availability, is very well suited to the modernization of existing continuous casting machines.

Contracts in Spain, India and China mark the success of the solution with the actuator direct drive technology by KOLLMORGEN inside.
Conclusion

With CONDRIVE, SMS Concast has developed a system which, due to the encapsulated direct drives from the KBM motor kit by KOLLMORGEN, is virtually maintenance-free. The innovation offers an excellent precision for controlling the oscillation of the casting die. In contrast to the other drive systems for oscillations (including hydraulic booster cylinders), CONDRIVE combines a simple design with online settings and monitoring of the oscillation curves.

Choose the Right Screw Drive Train With Actuator Performance Calculator

Array ( [post_title] => Choose the Right Screw Drive Train With Actuator Performance Calculator [post_content] =>

Article Posted by Parker’s Electromechanical Team on Monday, July 1, 2019 on the Parker Motion & Control Technology Blog

Parker ETH CylinderThere is no “one size fits all” drive train linear actuator technology for every application. In reality, the selection of different types of linear motion systems depends entirely on what is most critical to a specific application. While choosing to use a lead screw seems straight forward, choosing between ball and roller screws can be daunting. You can simplify the linear actuator selection process by approaching the application systematically and applying an actuator performance calculator.

To choose the proper technology, consider quantifying metrics rather than relying upon product labelling and initial perception.

An application example

This chart represents an application requiring 1000 lbs of continuous thrust, over a 10-inch stroke, moving at 12 in/sec at 100% duty cycle. In this application, the objective is to maximize the life of a particular actuator. Given the high duty cycle of this application, this analysis will focus on electric cylinder screw options of similar pitch and packaging.

Parker ETH Cylinder

These proposed actuator solutions will be evaluated:

Ball screw: Parker ETH 80 M10 with a 95 mm square frame

Roller Screw: “Competitor A” with a 102 mm square frame

The load-versus-life comparison demonstrates that the ball screw actuator, though slightly smaller in size, actually has a longer expected life than the similar roller screw actuator. This is largely due to the optimized packaging of the ball screw within the actuator body. The ball screw design advantage is also greater when cost is considered.

This kind of analysis makes the choice of a ball screw linear actuator selection over a roller screw straightforward.

Follow this engineering approach to choose the right linear actuator for your application:

Parker ETH

Step 1 – Identify relevant actuator performance metrics

Performance metrics are quantifiable outputs that measure the appropriateness of one technology (in this case, actuator) over another for an intended application. Metrics that benefit your application—such as actuator life—should be maximized; metrics that hinder your application—such as cost—should be minimized.

In the application example, three metrics were examined: actuator life, actuator frame size and cost.

 Step 2 – Apply the actuator performance equation for each solution

Parker ETH

A simple performance calculation is useful for quantifying the relative performance of each actuator solution. Characteristics that are ideally maximized, such as actuator life, are input in the numerator. Characteristics that are ideally minimized, such as cost, are input in the denominator, with the minimum across all actuator solutions input as the numerator.

Step 3 – Score it

This calculation takes into account each critical aspect of actuator performance and quantifies it. Weights can be applied to each of the metrics by assigning the coefficients A, B, C and D a relative value. Using this equation with no weights, the best solution should yield the score closest to 1.

This calculation can also be used to weight one metric higher than another. Given this model, the higher the performance score, the more ideal the actuator. Using the application example, as well as the metrics of life, frame width, and cost with even weight, results in the following calculations:

Parker ETH

Although these screws might seem to have similar performance on paper, once their relative performance is weighed using the actuator performance calculator as selection guide, the collective differences become evident.

Other considerations

Aside from performance and cost issues, consider the ease of sourcing. Ball and lead screws are readily available, but there are very few manufacturers of roller screws. When designing a motion system application in a global market, availability may be a deciding factor. With few manufacturers in limited locations, look for a reliable manufacturer with a global footprint.

A simple performance calculation is useful for quantifying the relative performance of each actuator solution. Characteristics that are ideally maximized, such as actuator life, are input in the numerator. Characteristics that are ideally minimized, such as cost, are input in the denominator, with the minimum across all actuator solutions input as the numerator.

Step 3 – Score it

This calculation takes into account each critical aspect of actuator performance and quantifies it. Weights can be applied to each of the metrics by assigning the coefficients A, B, C and D a relative value. Using this equation with no weights, the best solution should yield the score closest to 1.

This calculation can also be used to weight one metric higher than another. Given this model, the higher the performance score, the more ideal the actuator. Using the application example, as well as the metrics of life, frame width, and cost with even weight, results in the following calculations:

Parker ETH

Although these screws might seem to have similar performance on paper, once their relative performance is weighed using the actuator performance calculator as selection guide, the collective differences become evident.

Other considerations

Aside from performance and cost issues, consider the ease of sourcing. Ball and lead screws are readily available, but there are very few manufacturers of roller screws. When designing a motion system application in a global market, availability may be a deciding factor. With few manufacturers in limited locations, look for a reliable manufacturer with a global footprint.

Choose the Right Screw Drive Train With Actuator Performance CalculatorThere is no “one size fits all” drive train linear actuator technology for every application. In reality, the selection of different types of linear motion systems depends entirely on what is most critical to a specific application. While choosing to use a lead screw seems straight forward, choosing between ball and roller screws can be daunting. You can simplify the linear actuator selection process by approaching the application systematically and applying an actuator performance calculator.

To choose the proper technology, consider quantifying metrics rather than relying upon product labelling and initial perception.

An application example

This chart represents an application requiring 1000 lbs of continuous thrust, over a 10-inch stroke, moving at 12 in/sec at 100% duty cycle. In this application, the objective is to maximize the life of a particular actuator. Given the high duty cycle of this application, this analysis will focus on electric cylinder screw options of similar pitch and packaging.

Parker ETH Cylinder

These proposed actuator solutions will be evaluated:

Ball screw: Parker ETH 80 M10 with a 95 mm square frame

Roller Screw: “Competitor A” with a 102 mm square frame

The load-versus-life comparison demonstrates that the ball screw actuator, though slightly smaller in size, actually has a longer expected life than the similar roller screw actuator. This is largely due to the optimized packaging of the ball screw within the actuator body. The ball screw design advantage is also greater when cost is considered.

This kind of analysis makes the choice of a ball screw linear actuator selection over a roller screw straightforward.

Follow this engineering approach to choose the right linear actuator for your application:

Parker ETH

Step 1 – Identify relevant actuator performance metrics

Performance metrics are quantifiable outputs that measure the appropriateness of one technology (in this case, actuator) over another for an intended application. Metrics that benefit your application—such as actuator life—should be maximized; metrics that hinder your application—such as cost—should be minimized.

In the application example, three metrics were examined: actuator life, actuator frame size and cost.

 Step 2 – Apply the actuator performance equation for each solution

Parker ETH

A simple performance calculation is useful for quantifying the relative performance of each actuator solution. Characteristics that are ideally maximized, such as actuator life, are input in the numerator. Characteristics that are ideally minimized, such as cost, are input in the denominator, with the minimum across all actuator solutions input as the numerator.

Step 3 – Score it

This calculation takes into account each critical aspect of actuator performance and quantifies it. Weights can be applied to each of the metrics by assigning the coefficients A, B, C and D a relative value. Using this equation with no weights, the best solution should yield the score closest to 1.

This calculation can also be used to weight one metric higher than another. Given this model, the higher the performance score, the more ideal the actuator. Using the application example, as well as the metrics of life, frame width, and cost with even weight, results in the following calculations:

KBM motors as a byword for accuracy in laser cutting

Kollmorgen Success Story 3D Cutting

Pipes for industrial and residential flue ducts are made using machines by KOLLMORGEN Direct Drive motors.

The production of automation systems for sheet metal forming for sectors such as air conditioning, flue ducts and the automotive industry is the core business of TTEngineering. Located in Lomazzo near Como in a modern building of more than 2,000 m2, the company has also gained expertise in the cosmetics, medical, packaging and assembly sectors. More than 1,500 systems running in factories all over the world and exports accounting for well over 90% of total turnover are sources of pride for the company whose service department is able to respond precisely, quickly and punctually, even remotely.

To meet the ever more pressing needs of the market in terms of delivery time and performance, TTEngineering has concentrated on a design that can satisfy performance requirements in terms of acceleration, precision, productivity and flexibility. During a meeting in Parma during the SPS trade fair, the Como-based company set out its requirements to KOLLMORGEN. The motion control specialists proposed direct drive technology as the optimal solution for doing away with the complex mechanical transmission that involves drive belts and gear motors. In doing so, TTEngineering embraced the concept of a direct drive motor.

“We see two big advantages with Kollmorgen: it is a global brand that offers design consultancy and after-sales services of a high standard,” explained Massimiliano Crespi, who was Head of Engineering & Production at the time of this particular project and is now Managing Director at TTEngineering “The approach of the Kollmorgen staff during the design phase was outstanding.” The final tests provided the anticipated responses and allowed us to launch the TOP600 onto the market little more than a year later.

TOP600 machine for pipes for flue ducts

Success Story from Kollmorgen - 3D CuttingThe TOP600 is a machine for the 3D cutting of pipes intended for use as flue ducts for all sectors, from industrial to residential, produced with a range of materials.

The TOP600 is a Siemens CNC 5 interpolated axis laser cutting cell suitable for machining pipes with a maximum length of 1,500 mm, with a diameter of between 3” and 30” and thicknesses of 0.4 to 2 mm, made from steel, iron, or copper. The patented pipe clamping system has been created with a CNC self-centering spindle. This machine is aimed at companies operating in the HVAC and chimney pipes sectors. Depending on the combination of materials, thickness, and laser power, it is possible to cut at variable speeds of up to 20 m/min.

It is a modular machine which can be used by one operator who manually loads/unloads the pieces or in “fully automatic” mode, integrated into an automated line where a robot loads/unloads the pieces.

At the same time as updating the direct drive equipment with a torque motor on the rotation spindle, new software has been developed that allows for cutting with beveling.

TTE has its own cad cam platform and sophisticated cutting management software with predictive mathematics to compensate for out of roundness errors: the machine provides perfect cuts even for pieces that are slightly out of gage.

There are two versions available, the TOP600 Plasma and the TOP600 Laser, depending on the cutting technology used. The two machines are identical in terms of their configuration. The only changes are to the source used and, therefore, the type of cutting head used.

KBM Frameless Motors, modern direct drive technology

As an alternative to the technology that has been used in the past, namely precision gear motors and belt drives, KOLLMORGEN recommended a KBM™ series direct drive motor to TTEngineering that can offer greater flexibility and a range of different speeds so the machine can be adaptable and produce pipes with differing diameters.

The design of the machine also benefits, becoming flexible and compact, ensuring stable performance over time, remaining constant even with a high number of cycles (no downgrade).

Success Story from Kollmorgen - 3D CuttingThe KBM™ Series has been developed to be integrated directly into the machine, using its own bearings to support the rotor; it provides a high level of performance whilst allowing for a smaller size. There is a wide range of standard motors (14 sizes with varying lengths); different configurations and options are available depending on the requirement, and changes to the shared design can be made quickly and cost-effectively. “The performance offered by the Kollmorgen KBM™ series motor is so high that they even prompted us to redesign part of the frame and the cutting automation,” explained Mr. Crespi. “The use of the motor also enabled TTEngineering to patent an automated pipe clamping system.”

Properties

Benefits

Conclusion

The profitable collaboration with Kollmorgen continues with a new objective: TTEngineering is working on a product which will replace mechanical cutting with a high-tech laser and Kollmorgen linear motors will again be of great assistance in this case.

More than 1,500 systems running in factories all over the world and exports accounting for well over 90% of total turnover are sources of pride for the company whose service department is able to respond precisely, quickly and punctually, even remotely.

To meet the ever more pressing needs of the market in terms of delivery time and performance, TTEngineering has concentrated on a design that can satisfy performance requirements in terms of acceleration, precision, productivity and flexibility. During a meeting in Parma during the SPS trade fair, the Como-based company set out its requirements to KOLLMORGEN. The motion control specialists proposed direct drive technology as the optimal solution for doing away with the complex mechanical transmission that involves drive belts and gear motors. In doing so, TTEngineering embraced the concept of a direct drive motor.

“We see two big advantages with Kollmorgen: it is a global brand that offers design consultancy and after-sales services of a high standard,” explained Massimiliano Crespi, who was Head of Engineering & Production at the time of this particular project and is now Managing Director at TTEngineering “The approach of the Kollmorgen staff during the design phase was outstanding.” The final tests provided the anticipated responses and allowed us to launch the TOP600 onto the market little more than a year later.

TOP600 machine for pipes for flue ducts

Success Story from Kollmorgen - 3D CuttingThe TOP600 is a machine for the 3D cutting of pipes intended for use as flue ducts for all sectors, from industrial to residential, produced with a range of materials.

The TOP600 is a Siemens CNC 5 interpolated axis laser cutting cell suitable for machining pipes with a maximum length of 1,500 mm, with a diameter of between 3” and 30” and thicknesses of 0.4 to 2 mm, made from steel, iron, or copper. The patented pipe clamping system has been created with a CNC self-centering spindle. This machine is aimed at companies operating in the HVAC and chimney pipes sectors. Depending on the combination of materials, thickness, and laser power, it is possible to cut at variable speeds of up to 20 m/min.

It is a modular machine which can be used by one operator who manually loads/unloads the pieces or in “fully automatic” mode, integrated into an automated line where a robot loads/unloads the pieces.

At the same time as updating the direct drive equipment with a torque motor on the rotation spindle, new software has been developed that allows for cutting with beveling.

TTE has its own cad cam platform and sophisticated cutting management software with predictive mathematics to compensate for out of roundness errors: the machine provides perfect cuts even for pieces that are slightly out of gage.

There are two versions available, the TOP600 Plasma and the TOP600 Laser, depending on the cutting technology used. The two machines are identical in terms of their configuration. The only changes are to the source used and, therefore, the type of cutting head used.

KBM Frameless Motors, modern direct drive technology

As an alternative to the technology that has been used in the past, namely precision gear motors and belt drives, KOLLMORGEN recommended a KBM™ series direct drive motor to TTEngineering that can offer greater flexibility and a range of different speeds so the machine can be adaptable and produce pipes with differing diameters.

The design of the machine also benefits, becoming flexible and compact, ensuring stable performance over time, remaining constant even with a high number of cycles (no downgrade).

Success Story from Kollmorgen - 3D CuttingThe KBM™ Series has been developed to be integrated directly into the machine, using its own bearings to support the rotor; it provides a high level of performance whilst allowing for a smaller size. There is a wide range of standard motors (14 sizes with varying lengths); different configurations and options are available depending on the requirement, and changes to the shared design can be made quickly and cost-effectively. “The performance offered by the Kollmorgen KBM™ series motor is so high that they even prompted us to redesign part of the frame and the cutting automation,” explained Mr. Crespi. “The use of the motor also enabled TTEngineering to patent an automated pipe clamping system.”

Benefits

Conclusion

The profitable collaboration with Kollmorgen continues with a new objective: TTEngineering is working on a product which will replace mechanical cutting with a high-tech laser and Kollmorgen linear motors will again be of great assistance in this case.

More than 1,500 systems running in factories all over the world and exports accounting for well over 90% of total turnover are sources of pride for the company whose service department is able to respond precisely, quickly and punctually, even remotely.

To meet the ever more pressing needs of the market in terms of delivery time and performance, TTEngineering has concentrated on a design that can satisfy performance requirements in terms of acceleration, precision, productivity and flexibility. During a meeting in Parma during the SPS trade fair, the Como-based company set out its requirements to KOLLMORGEN. The motion control specialists proposed direct drive technology as the optimal solution for doing away with the complex mechanical transmission that involves drive belts and gear motors. In doing so, TTEngineering embraced the concept of a direct drive motor.

“We see two big advantages with Kollmorgen: it is a global brand that offers design consultancy and after-sales services of a high standard,” explained Massimiliano Crespi, who was Head of Engineering & Production at the time of this particular project and is now Managing Director at TTEngineering “The approach of the Kollmorgen staff during the design phase was outstanding.” The final tests provided the anticipated responses and allowed us to launch the TOP600 onto the market little more than a year later.

TOP600 machine for pipes for flue ducts

Success Story from Kollmorgen – The precise geometry of 3D cuttingThe TOP600 is a machine for the 3D cutting of pipes intended for use as flue ducts for all sectors, from industrial to residential, produced with a range of materials.

The TOP600 is a Siemens CNC 5 interpolated axis laser cutting cell suitable for machining pipes with a maximum length of 1,500 mm, with a diameter of between 3” and 30” and thicknesses of 0.4 to 2 mm, made from steel, iron, or copper. The patented pipe clamping system has been created with a CNC self-centering spindle. This machine is aimed at companies operating in the HVAC and chimney pipes sectors. Depending on the combination of materials, thickness, and laser power, it is possible to cut at variable speeds of up to 20 m/min.

It is a modular machine which can be used by one operator who manually loads/unloads the pieces or in “fully automatic” mode, integrated into an automated line where a robot loads/unloads the pieces.

At the same time as updating the direct drive equipment with a torque motor on the rotation spindle, new software has been developed that allows for cutting with beveling.

TTE has its own cad cam platform and sophisticated cutting management software with predictive mathematics to compensate for out of roundness errors: the machine provides perfect cuts even for pieces that are slightly out of gage.

There are two versions available, the TOP600 Plasma and the TOP600 Laser, depending on the cutting technology used. The two machines are identical in terms of their configuration. The only changes are to the source used and, therefore, the type of cutting head used.

The design of the machine also benefits, becoming flexible and compact, ensuring stable performance over time, remaining constant even with a high number of cycles (no downgrade).

Conclusion

The profitable collaboration with Kollmorgen continues with a new objective: TTEngineering is working on a product which will replace mechanical cutting with a high-tech laser and Kollmorgen linear motors will again be of great assistance in this case.

How Using Electric Linear Actuators Can Save You Money

Article Posted by Parker’s Electromechanical Team on Monday, July 1, 2019 on the Parker Motion & Control Technology Blog
Parker BlogIt’s well documented that creating compressed air for use by pneumatic cylinders is not a particularly cost-effective process, largely as a result of generator and system inefficiencies. With accounts departments leaning hard on engineers to deliver lower operating costs, increasing numbers are turning to the latest electric actuator solutions.
Why so?

Well, the design features of electric linear actuators mean they are able to deliver enhanced performance levels while also achieving lower total energy consumption. In fact, based on trials, savings of €3,200 can be anticipated for a typical single-actuator application over a two-year period.

Two steps become one

Parker BlogIn pneumatic systems, two steps are necessary to produce compressed air: electricity first produces air, before air pressure is converted into linear movement using a pneumatic cylinder. Similarly, two stages are required in a traditional electric solution, namely converting motor rotation to the movement of the electric actuator.
Electric linear motor actuators Parker ETT Series Machine Design

However, this double step can be reduced, with subsequent energy savings, by using a linear motor rod-style actuator solution such as a Parker ETT series unit, which is able to directly generate linear motion through the principle of electro-magnetism.

Another favourable attribute of an electric linear motor actuator compared versus a pneumatic actuator solution is the precise positioning achievable along its entire stroke. On-board feedback via an integrated analogue linear position sensor allows positioning precision to within 0.05mm.

Advantages of electric actuators: significant savings potential

The technical advantages of the latest electric linear motor actuators are clear, but what about the cost comparison we hear you ask?

Well, consider electric actuators applications and performance. A typical application involving the transfer of a 15kg load at 30 cycles per minute, for example. Here, a pneumatic cylinder solution would work with a pressure of approximately 2 bar, while the Parker ETT linear motor actuator solution consumes just 30W of electricity every cycle. Sure, the initial start-up cost for the electric actuator solution is higher than its pneumatic counterpart, but the cumulative energy cost savings mean your initial investment would be recouped well within one year.

Parker Blog

Moreover, just 24 months after start-up, savings will have increased to around €3,200. This savings is for just one actuator—if you multiply the number of actuators found on a typical production line it’s easy to see the vast savings possible.

How Using Electric Linear Actuators Can Save You MoneyIt’s well documented that creating compressed air for use by pneumatic cylinders is not a particularly cost-effective process, largely as a result of generator and system inefficiencies. With accounts departments leaning hard on engineers to deliver lower operating costs, increasing numbers are turning to the latest electric actuator solutions.
Why so?

Well, the design features of electric linear actuators mean they are able to deliver enhanced performance levels while also achieving lower total energy consumption. In fact, based on trials, savings of €3,200 can be anticipated for a typical single-actuator application over a two-year period.

Two steps become one

How Using Electric Linear Actuators Can Save You MoneyIn pneumatic systems, two steps are necessary to produce compressed air: electricity first produces air, before air pressure is converted into linear movement using a pneumatic cylinder. Similarly, two stages are required in a traditional electric solution, namely converting motor rotation to the movement of the electric actuator.

However, this double step can be reduced, with subsequent energy savings, by using a linear motor rod-style actuator solution such as a Parker ETT series unit, which is able to directly generate linear motion through the principle of electro-magnetism.

Another favourable attribute of an electric linear motor actuator compared versus a pneumatic actuator solution is the precise positioning achievable along its entire stroke. On-board feedback via an integrated analogue linear position sensor allows positioning precision to within 0.05mm.

Advantages of electric actuators: significant savings potential

The technical advantages of the latest electric linear motor actuators are clear, but what about the cost comparison we hear you ask?

Well, consider electric actuators applications and performance. A typical application involving the transfer of a 15kg load at 30 cycles per minute, for example. Here, a pneumatic cylinder solution would work with a pressure of approximately 2 bar, while the Parker ETT linear motor actuator solution consumes just 30W of electricity every cycle. Sure, the initial start-up cost for the electric actuator solution is higher than its pneumatic counterpart, but the cumulative energy cost savings mean your initial investment would be recouped well within one year.

Moreover, just 24 months after start-up, savings will have increased to around €3,200. This savings is for just one actuator—if you multiply the number of actuators found on a typical production line it’s easy to see the vast savings possible.

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Bricks that can put in an appearance

Motion Control by KOLLMORGEN makes fast and precise cuts from the column of clay

Kollmorgen - Success Story

Neat as a pin, each brick on the pallet is identical to the next. Deviations at the building site are accepted only within tight tolerances. Standardized measurements are already in demand simply because bricklayers these days rarely lay the vertically perforated bricks with mortar but glue them together with thin-bed mortar as piece work. Balancing gaps – error reports. And then every deviation from the norm also costs time – which is why manufacturers such as the Swiss brick manufacturer Landquart AG is continuously improving its established production process. To cut off the endless column of clay into individual bricks, the company has now integrated a servomotor driven module.

It is iron compounds which give clay bricks their typically orange-brown color. The precise color that the building materials ultimately take on depends just as much on the minerals contained within the clay as the firing temperature and the prevailing atmosphere in the oven. There are a number of adjustment screws which the manufacturers of so-called coarse-ceramic products can turn so that the construction industry can deliver perfect bricks. In so doing, it is important to observe that a good brick – with all its claims to automation – still takes time. The most important components of brick are loam, clays and marl.

Cut clean from the endless column

The brick manufacturer Landquart from the place of the same name in the canton of Graubünden extracts the clay from its own clay pit. “Before it is shaped, the ingredients need to be well mixed and, with a view to a homogeneous distribution of moisture, temporarily stored for days. Only then can the paste go into the extruder which compacts the mineral mixture and presses it through its mouthpiece. This creates an endless brick with a fixed length and width. The height is achieved from the speed at which the cutter from the Swiss company Freymatic AG works,” explains Daniel Bärtsch, Plant Manager at the Landquart AG brickworks.

Success StoryCharacteristic for the cut is the combination of the continuous feed of the clay column from the extruder and the discontinuous cutting. To do this, it takes the basic drive arrangement of the flying saw – in essence designed like a thin steel wire which runs from top to bottom through the soft clay columns like a harp string in time with the band speed. The cutter by Freymatic is at the same time cyclically positioned by a Thomson linear axis and synchronized with the band speed. To drive the linear unit with its interior ball screw, TBM Automation AG opts for synchronous servo motors in the AKM series by KOLLMORGEN. TBM and Freymatic have fostered a trusting collaboration for many years in matters of drive technology, motion control and automation. “We need to understand the processes, know how our customers think and then learn about the intricacies from our growing experience,” says Silverster Tribus, Managing Director at TBM. The Swiss engineering specialists from Widnau have on their part been cooperating closely with KOLLMORGEN as a certified partner.

Drive simulation from the workstation

In the past, the vast majority of functions needed to be constantly re-programmed – and a huge amount of code needed to be written for this. “These days, we pull our prepared blocks into a motion project – and that’s it.” In conjunction with graphic programming, the on-site engineers can see considerably better “what impact each of the changing parameters has”. The basis for this unerring and efficient way of working is created by the Kollmorgen Automation Suite – above all in the design of the pipe network contained within.

Pipe Network clearly and precisely replicates the machine architecture including the dependencies between the axes of an application in a very short space of time. The otherwise very complex programming in Pipe Network is replaced by a graphic description with drag-and-drop function. Starting from a virtual master, all functions and relationships between components as well as all movements and settings can be defined with graphic description blocks. If the system is available, the Kollmorgen Automation Suite also offers the opportunity for virtual simulation. Movement profiles, axis conditions or synchronizations can be optimized in real time without the need to connect a single device.

“This is a real advantage because we can test the axes in the office and initiate start up with a prepared, fault-free application,” stresses Danijel Todorovic-Grabher, Senior project manager at TBM Automation. If adjustments need to be made on site, there is a KOLLMORGEN touch panel at the ready right by the system in the brickworks. “We can simply leaf through the drives and don’t need an additional laptop on site.”

Additional overload capacity protects against process fluctuations

The user-dependent access for this in the first step is carried out on the freely programmable controls in the IEC 61131-3 languages. It is part of the functional scope of the KOLLMORGEN Motion Controller PCMM. The compact device takes on the sequential control and the motion control of the connected AKD servo drives with the AKM synchronous servo motors. Motion Control has designed TBM in such a sophisticated way that the machine actually removes the bricks from the column with the beautifully soft motion task profiles. At the Landquart brickworks, the unit is placed directly between the formed part of the extruder and the discharge conveyor. The high overload capacity of the AKM motors up to five times the nominal current ensures that, during operation, the sudden occurrence of speed fluctuations does not lead to a fault in the cutting process. Changed requirements in power are not a rarity in the brick industry; they actually happen on a regular basis. After all, it’s a natural product with a fluctuating consistency that is processed into bricks fully automatically.

Against this background, it is also common practice to regularly optimize the settings of the cutting unit. The water in the clay alone or the detailed changing composition of minerals changes the mechanical shaping of the brick which is still highly sensitive after extrusion. The motion control for taking the cut raw bricks away for drying is configured in a similarly challenging way. Days later, it then goes into the oven for several hours.

For the flow of materials, Freymatic also opts for servo axes by Kollmorgen which are coordinated alongside the multi-axis arrangements of the PCMM. From the viewpoint of motion control, this process is characterized by exactly managed acceleration and braking profiles which transport off and therefore separate the bricks during production. Integrated into the automation is the pallet loader which pushes metal profiles from a magazine under the bricks for their further transportation.

This is what good clay needs

A view into the clay industry shows how existing systems have allowed themselves to become efficiently modernized when machine engineers, system integrators and drive manufacturers work closely together.

“We present data about what quantity needs to be shifted and what times and accuracy are required,” says Marco Breitenmoser, head of construction at Freymatic. “TBM then uses this as a basis to make proposals.” Good clay has for many years relied on the cooperation between Freymatic and TBM discussing jobs together and then also finding the best solution together. “Our expertise lies predominantly in the machine concept and TBM’s is in the drive technology and automation,” says Marco Breitenmoser in summary.

Motion Control by KOLLMORGEN makes fast and precise cuts from the column of clay

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Bricks that can put in an appearance

Neat as a pin, each brick on the pallet is identical to the next. Deviations at the building site are accepted only within tight tolerances. Standardized measurements are already in demand simply because bricklayers these days rarely lay the vertically perforated bricks with mortar but glue them together with thin-bed mortar as piece work. Balancing gaps – error reports. And then every deviation from the norm also costs time – which is why manufacturers such as the Swiss brick manufacturer Landquart AG is continuously improving its established production process. To cut off the endless column of clay into individual bricks, the company has now integrated a servomotor driven module.

It is iron compounds which give clay bricks their typically orange-brown color. The precise color that the building materials ultimately take on depends just as much on the minerals contained within the clay as the firing temperature and the prevailing atmosphere in the oven. There are a number of adjustment screws which the manufacturers of so-called coarse-ceramic products can turn so that the construction industry can deliver perfect bricks. In so doing, it is important to observe that a good brick – with all its claims to automation – still takes time. The most important components of brick are loam, clays and marl.

Cut clean from the endless column

The brick manufacturer Landquart from the place of the same name in the canton of Graubünden extracts the clay from its own clay pit. “Before it is shaped, the ingredients need to be well mixed and, with a view to a homogeneous distribution of moisture, temporarily stored for days. Only then can the paste go into the extruder which compacts the mineral mixture and presses it through its mouthpiece. This creates an endless brick with a fixed length and width. The height is achieved from the speed at which the cutter from the Swiss company Freymatic AG works,” explains Daniel Bärtsch, Plant Manager at the Landquart AG brickworks.

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Bricks that can put in an appearanceCharacteristic for the cut is the combination of the continuous feed of the clay column from the extruder and the discontinuous cutting. To do this, it takes the basic drive arrangement of the flying saw – in essence designed like a thin steel wire which runs from top to bottom through the soft clay columns like a harp string in time with the band speed. The cutter by Freymatic is at the same time cyclically positioned by a Thomson linear axis and synchronized with the band speed. To drive the linear unit with its interior ball screw, TBM Automation AG opts for synchronous servo motors in the AKM series by KOLLMORGEN. TBM and Freymatic have fostered a trusting collaboration for many years in matters of drive technology, motion control and automation. “We need to understand the processes, know how our customers think and then learn about the intricacies from our growing experience,” says Silverster Tribus, Managing Director at TBM. The Swiss engineering specialists from Widnau have on their part been cooperating closely with KOLLMORGEN as a certified partner.

Drive simulation from the workstation

In the past, the vast majority of functions needed to be constantly re-programmed – and a huge amount of code needed to be written for this. “These days, we pull our prepared blocks into a motion project – and that’s it.” In conjunction with graphic programming, the on-site engineers can see considerably better “what impact each of the changing parameters has”. The basis for this unerring and efficient way of working is created by the Kollmorgen Automation Suite – above all in the design of the pipe network contained within.

Pipe Network clearly and precisely replicates the machine architecture including the dependencies between the axes of an application in a very short space of time. The otherwise very complex programming in Pipe Network is replaced by a graphic description with drag-and-drop function. Starting from a virtual master, all functions and relationships between components as well as all movements and settings can be defined with graphic description blocks. If the system is available, the Kollmorgen Automation Suite also offers the opportunity for virtual simulation. Movement profiles, axis conditions or synchronizations can be optimized in real time without the need to connect a single device.

“This is a real advantage because we can test the axes in the office and initiate start up with a prepared, fault-free application,” stresses Danijel Todorovic-Grabher, Senior project manager at TBM Automation. If adjustments need to be made on site, there is a KOLLMORGEN touch panel at the ready right by the system in the brickworks. “We can simply leaf through the drives and don’t need an additional laptop on site.”

Additional overload capacity protects against process fluctuations

The user-dependent access for this in the first step is carried out on the freely programmable controls in the IEC 61131-3 languages. It is part of the functional scope of the KOLLMORGEN Motion Controller PCMM. The compact device takes on the sequential control and the motion control of the connected AKD servo drives with the AKM synchronous servo motors. Motion Control has designed TBM in such a sophisticated way that the machine actually removes the bricks from the column with the beautifully soft motion task profiles. At the Landquart brickworks, the unit is placed directly between the formed part of the extruder and the discharge conveyor. The high overload capacity of the AKM motors up to five times the nominal current ensures that, during operation, the sudden occurrence of speed fluctuations does not lead to a fault in the cutting process. Changed requirements in power are not a rarity in the brick industry; they actually happen on a regular basis. After all, it’s a natural product with a fluctuating consistency that is processed into bricks fully automatically.

Against this background, it is also common practice to regularly optimize the settings of the cutting unit. The water in the clay alone or the detailed changing composition of minerals changes the mechanical shaping of the brick which is still highly sensitive after extrusion. The motion control for taking the cut raw bricks away for drying is configured in a similarly challenging way. Days later, it then goes into the oven for several hours.

For the flow of materials, Freymatic also opts for servo axes by Kollmorgen which are coordinated alongside the multi-axis arrangements of the PCMM. From the viewpoint of motion control, this process is characterized by exactly managed acceleration and braking profiles which transport off and therefore separate the bricks during production. Integrated into the automation is the pallet loader which pushes metal profiles from a magazine under the bricks for their further transportation.

This is what good clay needs

A view into the clay industry shows how existing systems have allowed themselves to become efficiently modernized when machine engineers, system integrators and drive manufacturers work closely together.

“We present data about what quantity needs to be shifted and what times and accuracy are required,” says Marco Breitenmoser, head of construction at Freymatic. “TBM then uses this as a basis to make proposals.” Good clay has for many years relied on the cooperation between Freymatic and TBM discussing jobs together and then also finding the best solution together. “Our expertise lies predominantly in the machine concept and TBM’s is in the drive technology and automation,” says Marco Breitenmoser in summary.

Absolute precision meets perfect movement: premo combines precision with motion  – as efficiently as never before

Wittenstein - PremoThe central idea behind the first fully scalable servo-actuator platform from Wittenstein is an uncompromising flexibility from the viewpoint of the user. Motors and gearboxes with application related graduated performance characteristics can be configured modularly to individual motor/gearbox units. The result is a modular system that is significantly more versatile and more individual with regard to performance for the most diverse applications, that meets almost all the challenges of automation, integration and industry specification.

The core of the motor/gearbox unit is a torsionally rigid precision gearbox with low backlash and excellent torque density in conjunction with the equally powerful, permanently excited synchronous servo motor, which guarantees low cogging and a constant speed through the distributed winding.

The Premo actuator generation opens new dimensions in terms of performance with doubled power density and minimal installation space requirements. The Premo boasts increased productivity and optimised energy efficiency thanks to digital, single-cable technology providing more freedom during planning, design and storage as well as lower investment costs.

Typical fields of application:

–  Delta robot (axes 1-3, swivel axis)
–  Handling portal (Z axis, swivel/rotating)
–  Machine tool reaming
–  Tubular bag packaging
–  Folding carton packaging
–  Plastic thermoform (tool axis)
–  Intralogistics (AGV)

Product Coding for Protein Producers

Array ( [post_title] => Product Coding for Protein Producers [post_content] =>

Regardless of package type, companies that produce meat or poultry products need to add variable information to the package. This includes date and lot codes, establishment codes, regulatory agency logos, and increasingly barcodes.

In many industries, this is quite straightforward, but for protein companies, there is the added complication of the environment in which coding and packaging equipment has to operate. Cold and wet conditions are the norm and any equipment brought into the plants needs to be able to handle this as well as washdown situations.

Traditionally continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers have been used for printing variable information onto meat and poultry packaging. These printers can usually handle the harsh conditions found on the packaging lines and also produce the print quality that is good enough for the applications. Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers have not been used in the past due to the inks being unsuitable for use on the films used for the packaging.

inkjet printing for protein companies

Over the last few years, however, there have been great advances in the chemistry of inks for TIJ printing and today, this technology is proving to be very successful at printing onto the non-porous substrates used for protein packaging.

The ink cartridges used in thermal inkjet printers ensure that there is no need to have to deal with the MEK and other solvents used in other print technologies, such as CIJ. There is no need to deal with disposing of partially used ink or additive bottles.

With no cleaning cycle needed at startup or shutdown, a thermal inkjet printer is always ready to work.

The thermal inkjet coders provided by ProMach brands, Code Tech & ID Technology, are designed to be able to get the job done in these areas. They bring all the advantages of the thermal inkjet system but include models that are available in IP65 versions, perfect for producing excellent code quality every time, regardless of the environment.

 

Reduce Maintenance & Downtime

A thermal impact printer uses familiar HP type ink cartridges. This means that every time you change the cartridge, you effectively get a new printer.

As a bonus, should you need to change the color of your print, this is accomplished by simply replacing the ink cartridge with one of the required color.

Our TIJ printers come in versions that are built to IP65 environmental protection. This means that regardless of how dirty or wet the packaging environment, the printers will operate happily.

Exceptional Print Quality

With print resolutions of up to 600×600 DPI, thermal inkjet produces perfect prints every time, even when printing very small fonts or high-density barcodes.

Inks are available that are fast drying and durable to suit just about every packaging material.

Quick and Simple Installation and Integration

Thermal inkjet printers from ID Technology and Code Tech have a small footprint, making them easy to install in your parent packaging machine, even when multiple heads are needed.

Combined with the web handling and printer traversing expertise of the Greydon brand, printers from ProMach Labeling & Coding can be integrated with every type of flexible packaging machine.

Is TIJ Always the Best Technology to Use?

No, not always.

Thermal inkjet brings some important advantages, but there are times where an alternative technology such as CIJ printing, thermal transfer, laser or ink stamping might make sense. We happen to sell a complete range of coding technologies so we can work with you to help decide which is best for your unique needs.

Regardless of package type, companies that produce meat or poultry products need to add variable information to the package. This includes date and lot codes, establishment codes, regulatory agency logos, and increasingly barcodes.

In many industries, this is quite straightforward, but for protein companies, there is the added complication of the environment in which coding and packaging equipment has to operate. Cold and wet conditions are the norm and any equipment brought into the plants needs to be able to handle this as well as washdown situations.

Traditionally continuous inkjet (CIJ) printers have been used for printing variable information onto meat and poultry packaging. These printers can usually handle the harsh conditions found on the packaging lines and also produce the print quality that is good enough for the applications. Thermal inkjet (TIJ) printers have not been used in the past due to the inks being unsuitable for use on the films used for the packaging.

Product Coding for Protein Producers

Over the last few years, however, there have been great advances in the chemistry of inks for TIJ printing and today, this technology is proving to be very successful at printing onto the non-porous substrates used for protein packaging.

The ink cartridges used in thermal inkjet printers ensure that there is no need to have to deal with the MEK and other solvents used in other print technologies, such as CIJ. There is no need to deal with disposing of partially used ink or additive bottles.

With no cleaning cycle needed at startup or shutdown, a thermal inkjet printer is always ready to work.

The thermal inkjet coders provided by ProMach brands, Code Tech & ID Technology, are designed to be able to get the job done in these areas. They bring all the advantages of the thermal inkjet system but include models that are available in IP65 versions, perfect for producing excellent code quality every time, regardless of the environment.

 

Reduce Maintenance & Downtime

A thermal impact printer uses familiar HP type ink cartridges. This means that every time you change the cartridge, you effectively get a new printer.

As a bonus, should you need to change the color of your print, this is accomplished by simply replacing the ink cartridge with one of the required color.

Our TIJ printers come in versions that are built to IP65 environmental protection. This means that regardless of how dirty or wet the packaging environment, the printers will operate happily.

Exceptional Print Quality

With print resolutions of up to 600×600 DPI, thermal inkjet produces perfect prints every time, even when printing very small fonts or high-density barcodes.

Inks are available that are fast drying and durable to suit just about every packaging material.

Quick and Simple Installation and Integration

Thermal inkjet printers from ID Technology and Code Tech have a small footprint, making them easy to install in your parent packaging machine, even when multiple heads are needed.

Combined with the web handling and printer traversing expertise of the Greydon brand, printers from ProMach Labeling & Coding can be integrated with every type of flexible packaging machine.

Is TIJ Always the Best Technology to Use?

No, not always.

Thermal inkjet brings some important advantages, but there are times where an alternative technology such as CIJ printing, thermal transfer, laser or ink stamping might make sense. We happen to sell a complete range of coding technologies so we can work with you to help decide which is best for your unique needs.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Array ( [post_title] => Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link [post_content] =>

Using barcodes on packages for customer engagement? This idea is certainly not new – here is a link to a Packaging World article on this very topic from 2011.

The article specifically mentioned that QR codes would provide the ability to download coupons, enter contests, play games, and other fun activities – all powered by those little barcodes.

This all seemed quite exciting, but QR codes got old quickly and the concept seemed to fade away.

Fast forward to today and there is renewed interest in using packaging to actively engage with customers.

Listen to our GS1 Digital Link Podcast

Traditional ways to communicate to customers such as TV and print advertising are not performing as well as In the past.  These are also a one-way form of communication, yelling a message at consumers – no wonder they don’t work as well as in the past. In addition, engagement on a brand’s social media pages is in decline as well. What is a marketer to do?

As a result of all this, brand owners have a renewed interest trying to set up a direct connection to their customers based on the product packaging – the package is potentially the ultimate marketing tool.
Enter smart packaging – a means to allow brands to connect directly with their customers. Generally, a smart package will allow the customer to scan a barcode (yes, usually a QR Code) and be connected to an interactive website.

So QR codes are back – a lot of brands are using them – some quite creatively

Currently, there isn’t a standard to use QR codes  (or any type of barcode) for customer engagement so brands are tending to encode them in different ways – often just a URL, sometimes other data.
Of course, the package’s UPC  barcode still needs to be there so most items would have to have multiple barcodes – rather messy and takes up more space on the package.
The product UPC codes scanned at the point of sale haven’t really changed in the 45 years since the concept was introduced.

Wouldn’t it be great if, rather than have multiple barcodes on a package, a single one could contain the UPC data, weblink for customer engagement? Maybe we can!

Last year GS1 our favorite standards organization came out with a new concept: GS1 Digital Link.

While the name might not be too exciting, Digital Link has the potential to revolutionize how barcoding is used, to add true customer engagement and to (yes really) provide item-level serialization and traceability.
For primary packaging (what we would buy in a store), GS1’s barcoding is built around the concept of the Global Trade Item Number – GTIN. This is what is encoded in the common UPC barcode that is scanned at the checkout.
The GTIN in the item barcode basically consists of a company prefix and an SKU or stock keeping unit number. The GTIN identifies a type of product – a 12oz can of Pepsi Cola or an 8 oz bag of salt n vinegar Lay’s chips for example. Every item sold at retail and many other products that use the GS1 system (such as pharmaceutical or medical products) has a GTIN.
It is important to note that a GTIN doesn’t identify an individual item – every 12oz can of Pepsi will have the same GTIN.
Also, no additional data can be encoded in the product barcode – only the 12 digit UPC in the US or 13 digit EAN code internationally. This is why additional barcodes must currently be added to a package in the event a brand owner wants to encode more data.
Traditionally, barcodes in the GS1 system have been used in the supply chain from manufacturer to point of sale. They lose their usefulness once the product has been sold. GS1 Digital Link promises to extend the reach of the GS1 system all the way from the manufacturer to consumer and to provide a means of interaction between the brand owner and the consumer.

So how does it work?

For the first time, GS1 is allowing a 2D QR barcode to be used as the barcode for point of sale.
Encoded within the barcode is a URI (unique resource identifier – an example of which is the familiar website URLs we use every day) and a number of other possible data fields that include:
GTIN
Lot number
Serial number
The expiration date and many more
Some examples:
Note, the examples use the domain id.gs1.org, but brand owners can use their own domains.
An interesting addition to the new specification is that the data fields can be identified by either using the familiar GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) or by text identifiers. Note that this is only a quick intro, so check out the GS1 Digital Link specification to get complete information.
  The ability to include all this data in one barcode means that only one barcode needs to be printed on the package and it can be used for point of sale, traceability, anti-counterfeit and for customer engagement by sending a consumer who scans the code to an interactive website.
GS1 Digital Link could prove to be the biggest revolution in barcoding since the first code was scanned in a store 45 years ago.

When will this start?

It is going to take a while and we can expect to see both traditional UPC codes and the new QR codes used side by side until the infrastructure is in place to handle the new 2D barcodes.
 A survey carried out by the food marketing institute found that in the US nearly 40% of POS scanners are capable of reading 2D codes today and that will increase to about 55% by 2022.
The POS systems to handle the data are running somewhat behind, with an estimated 20% of systems being able to handle this data.
There is clearly a ways to go.
In the same survey, stakeholders saw the advantages of switching to data-rich solutions such as follows:
60% stated better inventory accuracy
40% stated better customer engagement
36% stated anti-counterfeit
35% stated improved recall control
33% stated expiration date control
* Yes, people could choose more than one.
Finally, 85% of stakeholders see 3-5 years to get a higher data density solution to the current UPC established.
So there is certainly a lot of interest in GS1 Digital Link. While I’ve discussed the use of QR codes in this podcast, other data carriers that could be used (and be very interesting) are NFC RFID tags and the Digimarc system that turns the complete package into the barcode. Digimarc will be the topic of a future podcast.
Should be interesting days ahead.

The product UPC codes scanned at the point of sale haven’t really changed in the 45 years since the concept was introduced.

Wouldn’t it be great if, rather than have multiple barcodes on a package, a single one could contain the UPC data, weblink for customer engagement? Maybe we can!

Last year GS1 our favorite standards organization came out with a new concept: GS1 Digital Link.

While the name might not be too exciting, Digital Link has the potential to revolutionize how barcoding is used, to add true customer engagement and to (yes really) provide item-level serialization and traceability.
For primary packaging (what we would buy in a store), GS1’s barcoding is built around the concept of the Global Trade Item Number – GTIN. This is what is encoded in the common UPC barcode that is scanned at the checkout.
The GTIN in the item barcode basically consists of a company prefix and an SKU or stock keeping unit number. The GTIN identifies a type of product – a 12oz can of Pepsi Cola or an 8 oz bag of salt n vinegar Lay’s chips for example. Every item sold at retail and many other products that use the GS1 system (such as pharmaceutical or medical products) has a GTIN.
It is important to note that a GTIN doesn’t identify an individual item – every 12oz can of Pepsi will have the same GTIN.
Also, no additional data can be encoded in the product barcode – only the 12 digit UPC in the US or 13 digit EAN code internationally. This is why additional barcodes must currently be added to a package in the event a brand owner wants to encode more data.
Traditionally, barcodes in the GS1 system have been used in the supply chain from manufacturer to point of sale. They lose their usefulness once the product has been sold. GS1 Digital Link promises to extend the reach of the GS1 system all the way from the manufacturer to consumer and to provide a means of interaction between the brand owner and the consumer.

So how does it work?

For the first time, GS1 is allowing a 2D QR barcode to be used as the barcode for point of sale.
Encoded within the barcode is a URI (unique resource identifier – an example of which is the familiar website URLs we use every day) and a number of other possible data fields that include:
GTIN
Lot number
Serial number
The expiration date and many more
Some examples:
Note, the examples use the domain id.gs1.org, but brand owners can use their own domains.
An interesting addition to the new specification is that the data fields can be identified by either using the familiar GS1 Application Identifiers (AI) or by text identifiers. Note that this is only a quick intro, so check out the GS1 Digital Link specification to get complete information.
  The ability to include all this data in one barcode means that only one barcode needs to be printed on the package and it can be used for point of sale, traceability, anti-counterfeit and for customer engagement by sending a consumer who scans the code to an interactive website.
GS1 Digital Link could prove to be the biggest revolution in barcoding since the first code was scanned in a store 45 years ago.

When will this start?

It is going to take a while and we can expect to see both traditional UPC codes and the new QR codes used side by side until the infrastructure is in place to handle the new 2D barcodes.
 A survey carried out by the food marketing institute found that in the US nearly 40% of POS scanners are capable of reading 2D codes today and that will increase to about 55% by 2022.
The POS systems to handle the data are running somewhat behind, with an estimated 20% of systems being able to handle this data.
There is clearly a ways to go.
In the same survey, stakeholders saw the advantages of switching to data-rich solutions such as follows:
60% stated better inventory accuracy
40% stated better customer engagement
36% stated anti-counterfeit
35% stated improved recall control
33% stated expiration date control
* Yes, people could choose more than one.
Finally, 85% of stakeholders see 3-5 years to get a higher data density solution to the current UPC established.
So there is certainly a lot of interest in GS1 Digital Link. While I’ve discussed the use of QR codes in this podcast, other data carriers that could be used (and be very interesting) are NFC RFID tags and the Digimarc system that turns the complete package into the barcode. Digimarc will be the topic of a future podcast.
Should be interesting days ahead.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Using barcodes on packages for customer engagement? This idea is certainly not new – here is a link to a Packaging World article on this very topic from 2011.

The article specifically mentioned that QR codes would provide the ability to download coupons, enter contests, play games, and other fun activities – all powered by those little barcodes.

This all seemed quite exciting, but QR codes got old quickly and the concept seemed to fade away.

Fast forward to today and there is renewed interest in using packaging to actively engage with customers.

Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link

Listen to our GS1 Digital Link Podcast

Traditional ways to communicate to customers such as TV and print advertising are not performing as well as In the past.  These are also a one-way form of communication, yelling a message at consumers – no wonder they don’t work as well as in the past. In addition, engagement on a brand’s social media pages is in decline as well. What is a marketer to do?

As a result of all this, brand owners have a renewed interest trying to set up a direct connection to their customers based on the product packaging – the package is potentially the ultimate marketing tool.
Enter smart packaging – a means to allow brands to connect directly with their customers. Generally, a smart package will allow the customer to scan a barcode (yes, usually a QR Code) and be connected to an interactive website.

So QR codes are back – a lot of brands are using them – some quite creatively

Currently, there isn’t a standard to use QR codes  (or any type of barcode) for customer engagement so brands are tending to encode them in different ways – often just a URL, sometimes other data.

End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers

Array ( [post_title] => End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers [post_content] =>

As companies improve their products and introduce new models, earlier generations are discontinued and eventually can no longer be supported.

I recently received a reminder from SATO that some of their legacy models have reached the end of their service/support period.

Included are the following models:

SATO EOS

 

You can see the original SATO end of service notice here: SATO EOS Doc

Most users of these printers have already upgraded to current models, but if you happen to still be using any of these models, please note that by the end of August, service will end and spare parts will be limited until the end of the year, after which they can’t be ordered.

What Should You Do?

If you do use any of these discontinued printers, it is best to upgrade to a new  SATO CLNX printer. The new model has a lot of advantages and is designed to be a simple replacement for older printers. SATO also has a special trade-in program for the legacy printers that you can take advantage of. ID Technology can help you with every step of this process.

Array ( [post_title] => End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers [post_content] =>

As companies improve their products and introduce new models, earlier generations are discontinued and eventually can no longer be supported.

I recently received a reminder from SATO that some of their legacy models have reached the end of their service/support period.

Included are the following models:

End of Parts & Service – SATO Printers

 

You can see the original SATO end of service notice here: SATO EOS Doc

Most users of these printers have already upgraded to current models, but if you happen to still be using any of these models, please note that by the end of August, service will end and spare parts will be limited until the end of the year, after which they can’t be ordered.

What Should You Do?

If you do use any of these discontinued printers, it is best to upgrade to a new  SATO CLNX printer. The new model has a lot of advantages and is designed to be a simple replacement for older printers. SATO also has a special trade-in program for the legacy printers that you can take advantage of. ID Technology can help you with every step of this process.

Podcast – Lasers and Sustainability

Array ( [post_title] => Podcast – Lasers and Sustainability [post_content] =>

The Labeling News PodcastOur most recent podcast covered two topics:

The Loop waste-free packaging concept and how laser coding can help brands meet their sustainability targets.

In this episode I take advantage of a visit to Macsa ID in Barcelona, to chat with Macsa’s CEO Jordi Pinot on the topic of sustainability in packaging and how laser coding can help companies meet their sustainability goals.

Before this, there is a quick update on the Loop circular packaging system. Kroger is now a Loop partner here in the US as well as Walgreens. I’m still somewhat skeptical about this, but it does seem to be making progress.

Loop Waste Free Packaging Concept

On the topic of lasers for coding and marking products, Macsa has a very complete line up of laser systems for just about every application – see more info here: https://www.idtechnology.com/products/coding-solutions/laser-coders/

Laser Coding Can Help Meet Sustainability Targets

In the podcast, we discuss how laser coding allows for permanent prints to be added to all kinds of products. Lasers use no inks or solvents, making them an environmentally friendly way to add date and traceability codes as well as barcodes to many types of packaging materials.

Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases

Array ( [post_title] => Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases [post_content] =>

Using inkjet printers to add variable information to shipping cases, is increasing in popularity. Using this technique can dramatically reduce the number of pre-printed items that need to be managed and fit into company efforts to increase digitalization and move to a lean workflow.

Here at ID Technology, we have a lot of experience when it comes to installing inkjet systems for printing barcodes, text and graphics onto corrugated cases. We are a founding distributor of the FoxJet ProSeries system and have won the prestigious Regency Award for top FoxJet distributor for 14 consecutive years.

If there is one thing we’ve learned over this time, it’s that having good product handling is as important as having good printing equipment for getting the high-quality, compliant GS1 barcodes that customers demand. If the boxes are not presented consistently and accurately to the printheads, this will show in poor print quality and in particular will not allow high-quality barcodes to be printed.

To help educate users on best practices for product handling, our friends at FoxJet recently produced a detailed whitepaper on this topic that goes over many of the issues that are important to ensure great quality printing every time.

FoxJet ProSeries Printers

The whitepaper the transition from the case taper or sealer to the conveyor where the barcode printers are installed as being an area of crucial importance. Because space is often limited on packaging lines, the printheads often have to be installed very close to the exit of the case sealer. Some important factors are:

Carton Control – Proximity to the Printhead

It is important that after leaving the case sealer, the boxes are correctly presented the correct distance from the printheads. The drops of ink that are fired from the printheads can only travel a short distance while maintaining accuracy. If the box is too far away, print quality will decline and if so close it hits the printhead, damage might occur.

Be sure to control the boxes gently so that the boxes are undamaged as they pass through your packaging processes.

It’s best to use guide rails to accurately control the position of the box and even better use in conjunction with FoxJet’s retracting printhead brackets. This bracket uses a roller allow the printhead to be the correct distance from the box every time.

Product/Conveyor Speed

Ensure that boxes leaving your case sealer are traveling at a speed that is within the limits of your inkjet printer. Our FoxJet ProSeries printheads are able to print high-quality text, barcodes and images at up to 300ft per minute, which is enough for all but the fastest production lines.

Angel Hair

No, we are not talking pasta here! Some case sealing machines use hot melt adhesive to hold the flaps on the boxes closed. At times the adhesive applicators can leave a stringy residue behind that can get stuck to the printheads and block the tiny nozzles. Dust from the corrugated boxes can be bad too – be sure to regularly clean your packaging equipment and the printheads.

Vibrations

Good quality printing depends on the boxes being transferred smoothly past the printheads. Make sure your conveyor belt runs smoothly and that you are not dropping boxes onto the conveyor where the printheads are mounted. We’ve seen this happen and the results are not always pretty!

Best Practice of All

The best way to get the best labeling or coding for your shipping cases is to connect with your local ID Technology representative. With many years of experience, combined with the case packing, sealing and product handling of ProMach, we are able to help you determine the best solution for all your case coding or labeling needs.

Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping CasesUsing inkjet printers to add variable information to shipping cases, is increasing in popularity. Using this technique can dramatically reduce the number of pre-printed items that need to be managed and fit into company efforts to increase digitalization and move to a lean workflow.

Here at ID Technology, we have a lot of experience when it comes to installing inkjet systems for printing barcodes, text and graphics onto corrugated cases. We are a founding distributor of the Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping CasesFoxJet ProSeries system and have won the prestigious Regency Award for top FoxJet distributor for 14 consecutive years.

If there is one thing we’ve learned over this time, it’s that having good product handling is as important as having good printing equipment for getting the high-quality, compliant GS1 barcodes that customers demand. If the boxes are not presented consistently and accurately to the printheads, this will show in poor print quality and in particular will not allow high-quality barcodes to be printed.

To help educate users on best practices for product handling, our friends at FoxJet recently produced a detailed whitepaper on this topic that goes over many of the issues that are important to ensure great quality printing every time.

Product Handling Considerations for Barcoding on Shipping Cases

FoxJet ProSeries Printers

The whitepaper the transition from the case taper or sealer to the conveyor where the barcode printers are installed as being an area of crucial importance. Because space is often limited on packaging lines, the printheads often have to be installed very close to the exit of the case sealer. Some important factors are:

Carton Control – Proximity to the Printhead

It is important that after leaving the case sealer, the boxes are correctly presented the correct distance from the printheads. The drops of ink that are fired from the printheads can only travel a short distance while maintaining accuracy. If the box is too far away, print quality will decline and if so close it hits the printhead, damage might occur.

Be sure to control the boxes gently so that the boxes are undamaged as they pass through your packaging processes.

It’s best to use guide rails to accurately control the position of the box and even better use in conjunction with FoxJet’s retracting printhead brackets. This bracket uses a roller allow the printhead to be the correct distance from the box every time.

Product/Conveyor Speed

Ensure that boxes leaving your case sealer are traveling at a speed that is within the limits of your inkjet printer. Our FoxJet ProSeries printheads are able to print high-quality text, barcodes and images at up to 300ft per minute, which is enough for all but the fastest production lines.

Angel Hair

No, we are not talking pasta here! Some case sealing machines use hot melt adhesive to hold the flaps on the boxes closed. At times the adhesive applicators can leave a stringy residue behind that can get stuck to the printheads and block the tiny nozzles. Dust from the corrugated boxes can be bad too – be sure to regularly clean your packaging equipment and the printheads.

Vibrations

Good quality printing depends on the boxes being transferred smoothly past the printheads. Make sure your conveyor belt runs smoothly and that you are not dropping boxes onto the conveyor where the printheads are mounted. We’ve seen this happen and the results are not always pretty!

Barcodes – Validation vs Verification in GS1

Array ( [post_title] => Barcodes – Validation vs Verification in GS1 [post_content] =>

Verify or Validate Your GS1 Barcodes?

When talking about ensuring barcodes are correct, many people use the words validation and verification as though they are interchangeable – this is something that is not correct. Many companies that should know better promote their barcode reading systems as verifying barcodes when they are actually validating.

Validating and verifying a barcode are two separate processes, each being important to ensuring that barcodes used on products and packaging are correctly encoded with the right data and that the quality is of an acceptable level.
Barcodes are very important in many industries. Whether used to identify a product in a retail store, a shipping case traveling through a logistics supply chain, or on an important component used in aerospace, each barcode should contain the right data (encoded in the appropriate format) and also be guaranteed to be read with an appropriate barcode scanner.
If you are printing or using barcodes within the GS1 system, every application has rules concerning how the data is encoded and the minimum barcode quality standards. Some organizations demand that their vendors meet the GS1 quality standards (or sometimes exceed them) and failure to do so can result in very expensive chargebacks for non-compliance.
Let’s look more closely at Validation and Verification for linear barcodes – we’ll discuss 2D barcodes in a future article.
Barcode Validation vs Verification

Barcode Validation

Barcode Validation is all about ensuring the barcode actually scans and that the format of the data is correct for the application in question. As mentioned above, Validation is like spelling and it is easy to do – in most cases, we can validate barcodes with our smartphones. Here’s a quick example:
Validation or Verification for barcodes

This is a very common barcode – a GS1 128 code that is encoded with a GTIN and a lot (or batch) number. Using the Barcode Check app on my phone I can get a very helpful validation report:

GS1 128 barcode Validation Report - smartphone

This is really useful because it shows me that my barcode meets the GS1 encoding spec and it confirms that the GTIN and lot number are correctly identified. This app also produces a report that can be saved or emailed.

While this is all very good – and I use this and similar apps all the time – validating the barcode does not show that it meets the GS1 or any other quality standard. It certainly won’t help when your large customer tells you that although your barcodes scan ok, they are not meeting the GS1 quality criteria. To ensure barcode quality, it is important to have a program in place to actually verify that your barcodes are meeting the quality standard.

Barcode Verification

For GS1 applications, there are clearly defined quality standards for each type of barcode that is allowed for that application.

As an example, here are the common barcodes GS1 allows for use in General Distribution (that don’t need to be scanned at POS):

GS1 Barcodes General Distribution

Barcodes for General Distribution (Click for larger version)

I’ve left out a few of the allowed barcodes (the GS1 Databar codes) to keep the table size manageable – in my experience, most barcodes used in distribution (at least in North America) are ITF-14 and GS1-128, with UPC from time to time. Note that currently (late 2018), only linear barcodes are approved for these distribution applications.

As well as specifying barcode symbols the table also shows the maximum and minimum sizes for the barcode x-dimension (width of the smallest bars) and height, as well as the minimum quiet zone (clear space) that needs to be positioned at each end of the barcode. The final column in the table specifies the minimum quality specification that the barcode is required to meet – in each case, it is defined as 1.5/10/660. In the remainder of this article, we’ll look at what these numbers mean.

1.5/10/660

In the GS1 system, linear barcodes are verified against the ISO/IEC 15426-1 standard.

The standard grades a number of the barcode parameters and returns a single score – in the case of the GS1 distribution barcodes (with one exception) that score is 1.5.

The verification process inspects a number of parameters and assigns each one a grade between 0.0 and 4.0.

The standard recommends that 10 scans are completed for each parameter (across different parts of the symbol) and the score for that parameter is the average of the 10.

The lowest score for any one of the parameters is the overall score for that symbol – it is rounded to one decimal place.

In our GS1 example, the 1.5 represents the minimum passing score the symbol must achieve.

Aperture & Wavelength of Verification Device.

When verifying a barcode, the resolution of the inspecting device as well as the lighting in the area can have an effect on the results obtained.

In an effort to standardize the testing as much as possible, GS1 specifies two testing parameters.

GS1 Webinar

Recently I did a short webinar on validation and verification with SATO America and GS1 – check it out!

An Exception to the Rule.

After all this attempt at standardization, there is an exception included in the GS1 specification.

When printing directly onto brown corrugated (using technologies such as inkjet, or flexo), the lack of contrast between the bars and the brown background material causes the verification score to be reduced and the 1.5 target to be unobtainable.

GS1 takes this into account by making the following statement: “For ITF-14 symbols printed on labels with off-set, thermal, or laser print with an X-dimension 0.495 millimetre (0.0195 inch), the minimum quality specification is 1.5/10/660. For ITF-14 symbols printed directly on corrugate or labels with an X-dimension greater than or equal to 0.635 millimetre (0.0250 inch), the minimum quality specification is 0.5/20/660”.

So our customers using FoxJet ProSeries printers to print the ITF-14 barcode on cases can verify against the less stringent target, as long as the x-dimension is is above 25 mils.

Why Go Through All This?

Obviously, the use of auto-identification of items in supply chains using barcodes depends on the codes being readable at every step. The use of the GS1 standards ensures that barcodes are printed consistently and anyone using barcode scanners that meet the same requirements should be able to read them with no problems – regardless of whether they are using brand new imaging scanners or have 20-year-old laser scanners in a warehouse.

For anyone shipping barcoded packaging, verification is the only way to know for sure the barcode is correct and that it will be readable.

I had a great example of this just yesterday – a label printed on one of our own labeling systems included a UPC code. I didn’t have a verifier handy or even an industrial scanner – just my trusty phone. I scanned the barcode with two reliable apps – one would read it easily, one not at all. Did my barcode meet the GS1 requirement? I have no idea! This wasn’t for a production job so not a big deal. On the other hand, if you are using barcodes for your product or secondary packaging, you never want to be in that uncertain position.

Barcodes – Validation vs Verification in GS1

When talking about ensuring barcodes are correct, many people use the words validation and verification as though they are interchangeable – this is something that is not correct. Many companies that should know better promote their barcode reading systems as verifying barcodes when they are actually validating.

Validating and verifying a barcode are two separate processes, each being important to ensuring that barcodes used on products and packaging are correctly encoded with the right data and that the quality is of an acceptable level.
Barcodes are very important in many industries. Whether used to identify a product in a retail store, a shipping case traveling through a logistics supply chain, or on an important component used in aerospace, each barcode should contain the right data (encoded in the appropriate format) and also be guaranteed to be read with an appropriate barcode scanner.
If you are printing or using barcodes within the GS1 system, every application has rules concerning how the data is encoded and the minimum barcode quality standards. Some organizations demand that their vendors meet the GS1 quality standards (or sometimes exceed them) and failure to do so can result in very expensive chargebacks for non-compliance.
Let’s look more closely at Validation and Verification for linear barcodes – we’ll discuss 2D barcodes in a future article.
Barcodes – Validation vs Verification in GS1

Barcode Validation

Barcode Validation is all about ensuring the barcode actually scans and that the format of the data is correct for the application in question. As mentioned above, Validation is like spelling and it is easy to do – in most cases, we can validate barcodes with our smartphones. Here’s a quick example:
Validation or Verification for barcodes

This is a very common barcode – a GS1 128 code that is encoded with a GTIN and a lot (or batch) number. Using the Barcode Check app on my phone I can get a very helpful validation report:

GS1 128 barcode Validation Report - smartphone

This is really useful because it shows me that my barcode meets the GS1 encoding spec and it confirms that the GTIN and lot number are correctly identified. This app also produces a report that can be saved or emailed.

While this is all very good – and I use this and similar apps all the time – validating the barcode does not show that it meets the GS1 or any other quality standard. It certainly won’t help when your large customer tells you that although your barcodes scan ok, they are not meeting the GS1 quality criteria. To ensure barcode quality, it is important to have a program in place to actually verify that your barcodes are meeting the quality standard.

Barcode Verification

For GS1 applications, there are clearly defined quality standards for each type of barcode that is allowed for that application.

As an example, here are the common barcodes GS1 allows for use in General Distribution (that don’t need to be scanned at POS):

GS1 Barcodes General Distribution

Barcodes for General Distribution (Click for larger version)

I’ve left out a few of the allowed barcodes (the GS1 Databar codes) to keep the table size manageable – in my experience, most barcodes used in distribution (at least in North America) are ITF-14 and GS1-128, with UPC from time to time. Note that currently (late 2018), only linear barcodes are approved for these distribution applications.

As well as specifying barcode symbols the table also shows the maximum and minimum sizes for the barcode x-dimension (width of the smallest bars) and height, as well as the minimum quiet zone (clear space) that needs to be positioned at each end of the barcode. The final column in the table specifies the minimum quality specification that the barcode is required to meet – in each case, it is defined as 1.5/10/660. In the remainder of this article, we’ll look at what these numbers mean.

1.5/10/660

In the GS1 system, linear barcodes are verified against the ISO/IEC 15426-1 standard.

The standard grades a number of the barcode parameters and returns a single score – in the case of the GS1 distribution barcodes (with one exception) that score is 1.5.

The verification process inspects a number of parameters and assigns each one a grade between 0.0 and 4.0.

The standard recommends that 10 scans are completed for each parameter (across different parts of the symbol) and the score for that parameter is the average of the 10.

The lowest score for any one of the parameters is the overall score for that symbol – it is rounded to one decimal place.

In our GS1 example, the 1.5 represents the minimum passing score the symbol must achieve.

Aperture & Wavelength of Verification Device.

When verifying a barcode, the resolution of the inspecting device as well as the lighting in the area can have an effect on the results obtained.

In an effort to standardize the testing as much as possible, GS1 specifies two testing parameters.

GS1 Webinar

Recently I did a short webinar on validation and verification with SATO America and GS1 – check it out!

An Exception to the Rule.

After all this attempt at standardization, there is an exception included in the GS1 specification.

When printing directly onto brown corrugated (using technologies such as inkjet, or flexo), the lack of contrast between the bars and the brown background material causes the verification score to be reduced and the 1.5 target to be unobtainable.

GS1 takes this into account by making the following statement: “For ITF-14 symbols printed on labels with off-set, thermal, or laser print with an X-dimension 0.495 millimetre (0.0195 inch), the minimum quality specification is 1.5/10/660. For ITF-14 symbols printed directly on corrugate or labels with an X-dimension greater than or equal to 0.635 millimetre (0.0250 inch), the minimum quality specification is 0.5/20/660”.

So our customers using FoxJet ProSeries printers to print the ITF-14 barcode on cases can verify against the less stringent target, as long as the x-dimension is is above 25 mils.

Why Go Through All This?

Obviously, the use of auto-identification of items in supply chains using barcodes depends on the codes being readable at every step. The use of the GS1 standards ensures that barcodes are printed consistently and anyone using barcode scanners that meet the same requirements should be able to read them with no problems – regardless of whether they are using brand new imaging scanners or have 20-year-old laser scanners in a warehouse.

For anyone shipping barcoded packaging, verification is the only way to know for sure the barcode is correct and that it will be readable.

I had a great example of this just yesterday – a label printed on one of our own labeling systems included a UPC code. I didn’t have a verifier handy or even an industrial scanner – just my trusty phone. I scanned the barcode with two reliable apps – one would read it easily, one not at all. Did my barcode meet the GS1 requirement? I have no idea! This wasn’t for a production job so not a big deal. On the other hand, if you are using barcodes for your product or secondary packaging, you never want to be in that uncertain position.
