IO-Link description file database grows

The IODDfinder is centralised, cross-manufacturer database containing IO-Link description files

The database, which is maintained by members of the IO-Link community, now hosts more than 7,500 description files from around 80 manufacturers, making it the world’s largest collection of IODDs. 

By joining the community, each member gets the opportunity to create a manufacturer account in IODDfinder so they can upload the description files for their devices there. The platform features a web front end which people can use to search for and find IODDs for individual devices.

The added value comes from the application program interfaces (APIs) which device manufactures can also use to automatically upload, update and manage a large number of IODDs. These interfaces ensure that the central database is always complete and that their content is always up to date. 

Description files can also be downloaded automatically using APIs. This allows software tools to access the database over the Internet for device configuration or integration into automation systems, for example.

A majority of downloads are now carried out using such tools. Each IO-Link device features its own device ID and a specific manufacturer ID. The software tools can read out these two identification numbers immediately after connecting to IO-Link devices and – if they are online – download the appropriate description file from the Internet fully automatically. This enables the software tool to communicate with the connected IO-Link device immediately after the download. 

IODDfinder is available free of charge to users of the web front end.  www.io-link.com

Enhancing safety with mobile solutions

Enhancing safety with mobile solutions

The goal of enterprise mobility solutions is to network people, plants and systems, using data as efficiently as possible. The use of intrinsically safe smart devices can help improve productivity and the safety of employees, says Dietmaer Deppisch.

The flood of coming from modern production facilities is usually managed by central controls. However, for comprehensive and timely monitoring of processes, data needs to be available closer to the process and more directly – preferably in real time and with low latency. Modern, intrinsically safe (IS) smartphones and tablets can serve as decentralised mini data centers or digital gateways – for example in combination with professional software, sensors, beacons or other smart peripheral devices. The accumulated data can be transferred to the mobile device in real time and evaluated there, with the corresponding applications, at any location and at any time. This solution can help improve productivity and also significantly raises employee safety in hazardous areas.

The right safety level
Employees frequently work alone on the plant floor, outside the range of hearing and vision of their colleagues. They can be exposed to higher risks in their daily work and depend on quick assistance in case of an emergency. If no appropriate safety precautions are taken, injuries, accidents and consequential damage to people and equipment can easily occur. The company must ensure that an accident is detected and the rescue chain is set in motion swiftly. In case of critical hazards it is mandatory to set up a certified lone-worker protection solution (LWP).

Programmable 3D motion sensors can automatically trigger an alarm in the event of a hazard, report the exact location of the incident and document the entire process for later investigation. 

A typical comprehensive lone worker protection system will consist of Personal Alarm Signal Terminals (PAST) just as a mobile phone or wireless device; Personal Alarm Signal System (PASS) (software on server); and connection between the PASS and PAST  via telephone or wireless network. For larger scale lone worker protection solutions mobile devices can easily be integrated into cloud server systems. The Pepperl+Fuchs brand ecom offers such solutions. 

A practical example
A power plant operator in northern Italy offers a good demonstration of the benefits of a lone worker protection solution consisting of mobile devices and specifically for hazardous areas developed Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) beacons. 

The management was looking for a reliable automated system that would help prevent accidents and reduce the time for a potential rescue to an absolute minimum. It chose a solution with ecom's smartphone series Smart-Ex and beacon series Loc-Ex – both certified for use in Zone 1/21 and Division 1. With BLE beacons employees can also be located indoors or be warned of possible hazards in advance. They have an interior range of approximately 10 to 30m and up to 300m in the open field. The signal from the beacon is received by an application on the Smart-Ex smartphone and the distance to the beacon is calculated.

When the mobile worker enters the working area, the location can be read out accurately – even three-dimensionally, i.e. across floors – and forwarded to the control center´s central navigation system. The user is not dependent on an Internet connection, because the mobile devices and applications store the beacon signals locally on the device and send them immediately to update the backend system as soon as access to the company network is available. Compared to other geo-location technologies, this beacon technology offers a high degree of precision and accuracy in all three axes. The position of the mobile worker is stored in the temporary memory of the device and only forwarded to the rescuer in the event of an alarm. It cannot be retrieved either from the device itself or from the outside, from the alarm console in the control center or by subsequent technical analysis. The solution meets all data protection requirements, guarantees the safety of lone workers and, in an emergency, reduces the response times of the rescuers to a minimum.

In another scenario, an oil company commissioned Italian institute L'Istituto di Vigilanza dell'Urbe (IVU) to optimise and secure the refueling of petrol tanks at gas stations. This posed a challenge due to the high safety measures for the refueling process. Delivery and filling, for example, may only be carried out by specialised forwarding agents, under the supervision of a qualified person. The goal was to centralise the monitoring of tank processes in a control center and to implement a comprehensive protection system for lone workers. When selecting and integrating a solution, IVU relied on a specialist systems integrator for radio communication and control rooms. This company designed a complete all-in-one solution employing ecom IS mobile devices.

These mobile devices are equipped with a push-to-talk-over-cellular application. In the event of an accident, rescue workers can be notified immediately via Lone Worker Protection applications. Programmable 3D motion sensors automatically start an SOS request when, for example, the device falls off or no movement is detected. Each work area has been mapped with geofencing so the software detects the GPS position of the worker. This guarantees that an accident is always instantly detected. All SOS requests also activate the hands-free function of the smartphone as well as its camera which allows the control center to assess whether the employee is responsive and of what kind the injuries are. Where previously two people (for example, a truck driver and supervisor) were necessary because of safety requirements, one driver is now sufficient. The supervisor no longer has to be on site, because the devices are monitored continuously (GPS position, battery charge, signal quality, connection status) and entries and exits in a filling station are automatically noted. The control room supervisor will be able to determine, in seconds, whether an alarm is real. It is also possible to document an emergency situation by using recorded voice communication, video streaming, GPS position and event logs. The documentation of the entire rescue chain makes the process evaluable and provides an effective basis for further optimising alert processes.

Getting on board with AI technology

Getting on board with AI technology

It is becoming a reality that technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) are starting to change the traditional role of the control engineer. Suzanne Gill finds out more about the benefits it can offer engineers as well as the barriers to its adoption in the industrial environment.

According to Jos Martin, senior engineering manager at MathWorks, the biggest impact of AI on control engineering in the coming years will be on the workers themselves. He said: “As demand for data science skills grows and the tech skills gap widens, everyday engineers and scientists, as well as data scientists, will be expected to fill the gap, undergoing training on how to design and deploy machine learning systems to become ‘citizen data scientists’. 

To be able to make the most of AI in their work, engineering professionals will need to possess skills such as the ability to deal with large datasets, build and train AI models and understand how to use new development tools and software. Companies need to support their workers to upskill and be willing to invest in adequate training to make this a reality.”

Hartmut Pütz, president Factory Automation EMEA at Mitsubishi Electric Europe, agrees that AI will affect the control engineering role. He said: “Control engineers will need to change their daily task list. Their role will start to include much more data analysis activities. When users start to implement more self-learning and self-optimising technology in processes a big part of the control engineering objectives will change and this will mean that engineering skillsets will also need to change. I believe that the job profile will become more aligned with that software engineering and data engineering.”  

“In around 10-15 years it is very likely that process optimisation will be handled entirely by AI technologies and the ability to programme PLCs will become much less important. Even today we are seeing PLC programs being generated automatically by higher level systems in the simulation space and then downloaded into the PLC.”

Improving efficiencies
AI algorithms are starting to improve the efficiency of the entire factory production line, reducing energy consumption and waste, enabling organisations to meet important corporate social responsibility targets as well as deliver cost-savings. Traditionally, to achieve good AI accuracy levels and easy training of models, use of high-performance computing systems such as GPUs, clusters and data centres that use 32-bit floating-point math have been vital. However, developments in software tools now mean that AI inference models, which use a range of fixed-point math, can enable engineers to capitalise on devices such as electronic control units and other embedded industrial applications that run on lower power.

AI is helping to improve the accuracy of predictive maintenance applications – such as those for predicting the remaining useful life for an industrial site pump. However, one of the biggest barriers to its adoption in the industrial space is having enough high-quality data to properly train AI models. “Lots of failure data is needed to ensure the AI model is accurate, but it is expensive and inefficient to create data from real, physical equipment. Fortunately, improvements in software now make it easier to recreate data from critical failure conditions and anomalies by generating simulations representing failure behaviour and synthesising it to train a model,” said Martin.

“We are seeing AI being used to transform design in everything from industrial plants to wind turbines to autonomous vehicles to aircraft,” he continued. “However, another barrier to adoption of AI for smart design is the complexity of multi-domain, AI-driven systems. To get around this, engineers are turning to model-based design tools that provide an end-to-end workflow to reduce complexity. These tools can simulate, integrate and continuously test systems, allowing designers to trial ideas in complete context, identify weaknesses in the data and spot flaws in component design before they become a problem.”

Reinforcement learning (RL) – a form of AI famous for beating human players in chess and Go – is also now being employed to improve engineering design. It works by learning to perform a task through repeated trial-and-error interactions within a dynamic environment. Martin predicts that very soon engineers will deploy RL agents into AI models to optimise performance, for example improving response times in an autonomous driving system.

Where and how?
An important question facing industry today is where and how to leverage AI and the data that drives it, to capture as much value as possible.  Andrew McCloskey, chief technology officer, EVP of R&D at AVEVA, believes that this offers a huge opportunity for modern control engineers as when properly implemented AI will make them more effective than ever before, enabling them to implement huge savings for their companies.  “AI-enhanced predictive maintenance of industrial equipment can generate a 10% reduction in annual maintenance costs, up to 20% reduction in downtime and a 25% reduction in inspection costs, said McCloskey. 

Predictive maintenance will leverage both supervised and unsupervised learning – the two primary methods of machine learning that essentially describe the ‘training’ required for artificial intelligence algorithms to ‘get smart’ and provide these savings. Supervised learning enables knowledge transfer from the control engineer in a very short time while unsupervised learning is able to automatically recognise disparities in data that may have significant consequences if left unchecked. Together, these algorithms develop high probability predictions that often are not intuitive or otherwise easily identified. “This frees up more time for the control engineer to take on even bigger challenges and drive a flow of continuous improvement, not just a singular event of improvement,” said McCloskey.  
 
“For example, equipped with predictions of impending failures, it is no longer necessary to perform inspections and maintenance based on a pre-determined time schedule. Instead, we maximise the lifespan of equipment parts and replace them as and when necessary – in this case, just before the impending problem occurs. With tight capital and operating budgets, manufacturers are looking to ‘sweat’ existing assets, and this predictive maintenance approach translates into significant savings in inspection and maintenance costs while keeping unplanned downtime to minimum.”

Conclusion
There can be no denying that the technology is making waves in the control engineering sector but we have learned that AI is not a magic bullet. While there are still barriers to its adoption of the technology, it is vital that industry starts to engage with the technology as the benefits are too great to ignore.

Getting on board with AI technology

It is becoming a reality that technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) are starting to change the traditional role of the control engineer. Suzanne Gill finds out more about the benefits it can offer engineers as well as the barriers to its adoption in the industrial environment.

According to Jos Martin, senior engineering manager at MathWorks, the biggest impact of AI on control engineering in the coming years will be on the workers themselves. He said: “As demand for data science skills grows and the tech skills gap widens, everyday engineers and scientists, as well as data scientists, will be expected to fill the gap, undergoing training on how to design and deploy machine learning systems to become ‘citizen data scientists’. 

To be able to make the most of AI in their work, engineering professionals will need to possess skills such as the ability to deal with large datasets, build and train AI models and understand how to use new development tools and software. Companies need to support their workers to upskill and be willing to invest in adequate training to make this a reality.”

Hartmut Pütz, president Factory Automation EMEA at Mitsubishi Electric Europe, agrees that AI will affect the control engineering role. He said: “Control engineers will need to change their daily task list. Their role will start to include much more data analysis activities. When users start to implement more self-learning and self-optimising technology in processes a big part of the control engineering objectives will change and this will mean that engineering skillsets will also need to change. I believe that the job profile will become more aligned with that software engineering and data engineering.”  

“In around 10-15 years it is very likely that process optimisation will be handled entirely by AI technologies and the ability to programme PLCs will become much less important. Even today we are seeing PLC programs being generated automatically by higher level systems in the simulation space and then downloaded into the PLC.”

Improving efficiencies
AI algorithms are starting to improve the efficiency of the entire factory production line, reducing energy consumption and waste, enabling organisations to meet important corporate social responsibility targets as well as deliver cost-savings. Traditionally, to achieve good AI accuracy levels and easy training of models, use of high-performance computing systems such as GPUs, clusters and data centres that use 32-bit floating-point math have been vital. However, developments in software tools now mean that AI inference models, which use a range of fixed-point math, can enable engineers to capitalise on devices such as electronic control units and other embedded industrial applications that run on lower power.

AI is helping to improve the accuracy of predictive maintenance applications – such as those for predicting the remaining useful life for an industrial site pump. However, one of the biggest barriers to its adoption in the industrial space is having enough high-quality data to properly train AI models. “Lots of failure data is needed to ensure the AI model is accurate, but it is expensive and inefficient to create data from real, physical equipment. Fortunately, improvements in software now make it easier to recreate data from critical failure conditions and anomalies by generating simulations representing failure behaviour and synthesising it to train a model,” said Martin.

“We are seeing AI being used to transform design in everything from industrial plants to wind turbines to autonomous vehicles to aircraft,” he continued. “However, another barrier to adoption of AI for smart design is the complexity of multi-domain, AI-driven systems. To get around this, engineers are turning to model-based design tools that provide an end-to-end workflow to reduce complexity. These tools can simulate, integrate and continuously test systems, allowing designers to trial ideas in complete context, identify weaknesses in the data and spot flaws in component design before they become a problem.”

Reinforcement learning (RL) – a form of AI famous for beating human players in chess and Go – is also now being employed to improve engineering design. It works by learning to perform a task through repeated trial-and-error interactions within a dynamic environment. Martin predicts that very soon engineers will deploy RL agents into AI models to optimise performance, for example improving response times in an autonomous driving system.

Where and how?
An important question facing industry today is where and how to leverage AI and the data that drives it, to capture as much value as possible.  Andrew McCloskey, chief technology officer, EVP of R&D at AVEVA, believes that this offers a huge opportunity for modern control engineers as when properly implemented AI will make them more effective than ever before, enabling them to implement huge savings for their companies.  “AI-enhanced predictive maintenance of industrial equipment can generate a 10% reduction in annual maintenance costs, up to 20% reduction in downtime and a 25% reduction in inspection costs, said McCloskey. 

Predictive maintenance will leverage both supervised and unsupervised learning – the two primary methods of machine learning that essentially describe the ‘training’ required for artificial intelligence algorithms to ‘get smart’ and provide these savings. Supervised learning enables knowledge transfer from the control engineer in a very short time while unsupervised learning is able to automatically recognise disparities in data that may have significant consequences if left unchecked. Together, these algorithms develop high probability predictions that often are not intuitive or otherwise easily identified. “This frees up more time for the control engineer to take on even bigger challenges and drive a flow of continuous improvement, not just a singular event of improvement,” said McCloskey.  
 
“For example, equipped with predictions of impending failures, it is no longer necessary to perform inspections and maintenance based on a pre-determined time schedule. Instead, we maximise the lifespan of equipment parts and replace them as and when necessary – in this case, just before the impending problem occurs. With tight capital and operating budgets, manufacturers are looking to ‘sweat’ existing assets, and this predictive maintenance approach translates into significant savings in inspection and maintenance costs while keeping unplanned downtime to minimum.”

Conclusion
There can be no denying that the technology is making waves in the control engineering sector but we have learned that AI is not a magic bullet. While there are still barriers to its adoption of the technology, it is vital that industry starts to engage with the technology as the benefits are too great to ignore.

Spend on simulation software grows as use cases prove its benefits

Traditionally, simulation software was only been employed to tweak production lines. Today, however, it is being utilised to test new concepts, accelerate product development, and demonstrate regulatory compliance, according to a new report from ABI Research, enititled ‘Industrial Simulation Use Cases: How Simulation Software Benefits Manufacturers’ Operations application analysis report.’

Investment in simulation software only tends to occur when there is uncertainty about making changes to a production line or when building a brand-new line is too expensive. That is because downtime is so costly in terms of operational efficiencies. “New use cases have now proven that by investing in simulation software, manufacturers can identify and solve issues in advance. Simulation software can also be used to simulate how components work together in creating new products and simulating process flows to demonstrate compliance,” explained Michael Larner, principal analyst at ABI Research.

Notable use cases for simulation software include AnyLogic helping General Dynamic (NASSCO) improve its handling of the thousands of parts flowing though its shipyards and Siemens modelling Electrolux’s factories to identify operational efficiencies. Dassault Systèmes is helping Global Trailers accelerate the processes for bringing new trailers to market. At the same time, AspenTech developed a solution for Fluor, an engineering and construction firm, to demonstrate that its sulfur tracking technologies help gas plants meet environmental requirements.

The more complex the production line and the engineering process, the greater the demand for simulation software. “Testing in the digital world before going live on the factory floor becomes critical when mistakes are possible and expensive to rectify,” continued Larner.

It appears that manufacturers are taking note and it is expected that the global total for the number of simulation software users will grow from 60,000 in 2018, to 110,000 at the end of2025, and 172,000 at the end of 2030.

“The strongest argument for simulation software is about ROI. The financial and reputational costs associated with a failure on the production line can be catastrophic,” concluded Larner.

• Lean / Continuous Improvement 
• Young Engineer of the Year 
• Lifetime Achievement 
• Hygiene & Food Safety 
• Process & Packaging 
• Skills & Development 
• Smart / Digital Technology 
• Environmental / Sustainability 

Nominating a company or person is easy. You can nominate your own company; you can nominate an innovative product that was developed to solve a food processing issue; or you could nominate a food industry engineering project that incorporates automation technology and has helped solve a problem. 

Nominations need to include the following information: 
 
• Contact name, address, phone number and email of nominee and category. 
• Details about the nominated product/application/technology/person. (and high-resolution image where possible).
• Brief statement about the potential impact of the nomination for the food and beverage processing sector
• Brief evidence or customer recommendations about the benefits – if applicable. 

Nominations should be sent to the editor of Food Processing – Suzanne.gill@imlgroup.co.uk – before 22nd June. After this date the final nominations will be presented to the readers of Food Processing for consideration.

Last year’s winners included Bakkavör’s apprenticeship programmes, which have been designed to develop the skills of young engineering talent who want to embark on a new career in food manufacturing while working towards a nationally recognised qualification. 

Winner of the Process & Packaging Award was the Hygienic eXtended Transport System (XTS) from Beckhoff Automation is a linear motion technology that offers a high degree of design freedom and reduces maintenance requirements, while igus UK scooped the Robotics & Automation Award with its robolink DCi, a cost-effective robotic arm solution for the food industry which offers the benefits of flexibility for picking and packing applications. The robotic arm is suited to use in lifting applications. It can handle items weighing up to 1kg with an accuracy of ±0.5mm and it can be installed and commissioned without the need for any prior robotics experience.

PROFINET gets boosted security measures at protocol level

PROFINET gets boosted security measures at protocol level

PI (PROFIBUS & PROFINET International) has always recognised security as being one of the most vital components of an industrial communication system. 

Since 2006, the PROFINET Security Guideline has described the technical and procedural measures on the part of the manufacturer and users of PROFINET devices. PI is now developing supplemental measures to also protect PROFINET at the protocol level.

The IT security of production plants is gaining in importance. The integrated networking in companies, the vertical integration and the trend toward flatter system hierarchies requires comprehensive approaches for IT security in production. Previous concepts, which relied primarily on isolating the production plants, need to be supplemented with new measures that make provision for the protection of components – including the protection of PROFINET at protocol level. The basics for this were presented by PI this year in the white paper ‘Security Extensions for PROFINET,’ which draws on international standard IEC 62443.

Various security objectives play a significant role for PROFINET in this process. One of the highest priorities is integrity – e.g. identifying and preventing data manipulation or the suppressing of alarms in devices. Changing the configuration of IO devices in day-to-day operations must also be secured by means of authorisation. The robustness of the system, and thus its availability, also cannot be disregarded. 

The analysis of the security objectives yielded various priorities, resulting in PI now having defined three security classes: robustness, integrity and authenticity, and confidentiality. This allows for the authenticity of the PROFINET nodes to be ensured through a cryptographically secured digital identity – in the form of certificates. But the integrity of the communication can also be ensured, e.g. through cryptographic checksums.

The necessary specification tasks have now been outlined, and initial measures for security class 1 (robustness) have been defined. These will be integrated in the specifications for PROFINET and for GSDML

Parallel to this, further development is taking place on the other security classes to ensure that PROFINET will be equipped to face the demands of Industry 4.0.

Weatherability

Array ( [post_title] => Weatherability [post_content] =>

Weatherability is the ability of a label to withstand the effects of outdoor weathering, sunlight, heat, cold, humidity, rain, snow, and time.

Some of the components, along with the weather, that effect the life of a label include the type of ink used, the base material and the top coating of the label, and what substate the material will adhere to.

Why Weatherability Matters

The weather can cause a label to peel off easy or by itself, lose color, become illegible, scratch, or fade completely. The problem is that these labels may have important information on them that is essential or important so therefore these labels need to last as long as the products they are on.

It is important for labels to remain legible for product information such as lot numbers, barcodes, instructions, safety warnings, and warranties.

Solutions

There is no one-fits all answer when it comes to weatherability because each situation and weather type is different for every label.

It is important to understand the different types of weather environments your label will be in and make sure to test your label and review the results before choosing the best solutions.

Different types of common weathering tests that are done are:

The final results will give you an evaluation on adhesion, legibility, color retention abrasion resistance and other properties. 

Why Whitlam

Whitlam has over 50 years of experience in the Automotive Industry we understand regulations and requirements of labels. With our In-House Lab we have the capabilities to test labels against some of these types of weather conditions. We have solutions that will help your label withstand the effects of outdoor weathering, sunlight, heat, cold, humidity, rain, and time.

Whitlam can offer solutions that are tougher, better and longer lasting. For more information contact Whitlam today!

Whitlam Core Values 

Array ( [post_title] => Whitlam Core Values  [post_content] =>

Whitlam was founded in 1957. Since that time Whitlam has gone by a fundamental principle that we call our Core Values. Our Core Values define who we are and what we stand for.

One of Whitlam’s core values is to be kind and respectful. To us this means celebrating our similarities AND our differences. We show kindness by exhibit friendliness to everyone who walks through our door or who we meet. We have respect for each other, suppliers, customers and business partners. When someone has a difference of opinion, we listen to them and are open to what they have to say. Whitlam exhibits patience and a kind attitude. We show empathy by putting ourselves in other peoples shows.

Secondly, Whitlam exhibits honesty and integrity by taking pride in our work. Here at Whitlam we aren’t afraid of failure because we learn from our mistakes. At Whitlam we do what we say we will do, and we follow through. If someone asks us a question that we don’t know we aren’t afraid to do research or ask someone else for help until we know the answer.

Thirdly we try our best to go above and beyond. This includes:

Teamwork is our fourth core value. We encourage teamwork and demonstrate a willingness to help others. We lift each other up and work together to find the best solutions.  We make sure to communicate often and clearly. We are helpful to everyone, especially for those that are new. Often, we celebrate one another and our achievements.

As many of us like to say:

“It takes a Village”

All these core values show through in our last core value which is customer focus. Customer focus is one of our most important values because our customers are very important to us and we put our customers first. Whitlam display’s a true commitment to excellence. We create strong partnership with our customers and strive to be a good active listener that are open to new ideas and changes. With our open-mindedness we make sure we understand the needs of others. Our customers can see our core values shine through because not only do we treat each other with kindness, respect, honesty and integrity but we make sure we follow through and treat our customers the same. Whitlam is a family and our customers are part of our family.

With Whitlam’s core values we make sure that we add value wherever we go, and with whomever we meet. Using our technical knowledge and experience we make the tough stuff easy. If you would like more information about Whitlam please contact us today!

Solutions for Galvanic Corrosion

Array ( [post_title] => Solutions for Galvanic Corrosion [post_content] =>

When two dissimilar metals are brought into electrical contact, Galvanic Corrosion occurs. The electrical contact of these two metals changes their individual corrosion rates. One of the dissimilar metals corrodes faster than it normally would by itself, while the other dissimilar metal corrodes slower than it would by itself. 

There are different weathering environments that can cause galvanic corrosion such as water, heat, humidity and more.

Other factures besides weathering environments can also play into the effects that cause galvanic corrosion such as the way they are assembled, what metals are involved, and more.

A great example of Galvanic Corrosion is the Statue of Liberty. In the 1980s during a regular maintenance check revealed that corrosion had accrued between the copper outer skin and the wrought iron support structure.

Galvanic Corrosion can also occur with dissimilar metals on a vehicle. When you have a spare tire that is located under a vehicle, the spare tire is mounted in a heat resistant shield. That shield is then mounted to the frame under a vehicle. The heat resistant shield and frame of the vehicle are two different metals. The mount where these two are mounted together can develop galvanic corrosion. There are solutions to prevent galvanic corrosion from occurring.

Whitlam engineering team has developed various solutions to help eliminate galvanic corrosion. With our In-House lab and R&D team we can test products and come up with the best solution for your products need. At Whitlam our goal is to make the tough stuff easy.

Let us help you, contact us today for more information.

Our Servo-motion control systems allow for island placement, and the ability to marry multiple materials with
great precision.

At Whitlam we produce converted parts for the following market segments:

One type of engineered bonding solutions that Whitlam specializes in is 3M™VHB™.

3M™VHB™ is an industry leading brand of acrylic foam tape. It is designed to replace mechanical fasteners when assembling products, giving your product a clean look with an invisible bond. With 3M™ VHB™ viscoelastic acrylics and 100% closed cell foam design this product has a very strong bond, is durable and has a waterproof seal.

3M™VHB™ Characteristics include:

 

Bonding product parts with precision, ease, reliability, and strength requires an approach that breaks the barriers of traditional construction elements. 3M™VHB™ Tapes open up a world of possibilities – eliminating rivets, screws, bolts, and welds – and improving design construction, aesthetics and productivity. With unmatched strengths these tapes increase the overall durability and reliability of every product bond.

THERMAL-TRANSFER PRINTING

Array ( [post_title] => THERMAL-TRANSFER PRINTING [post_content] =>

When on demand printing is required, thermal-transfer printing is a great option.

Thermal-transfer printing is a digital printing method. In this process the coating of a material called “ribbon” is melted onto another material such as paper.

Markets

Thermal-transfer printing can be used in many markets such as Healthcare, Transportation, Retail, Manufacturing, Food/Beverage, Automotive, Chemical, Industrial, Durable Goods, Electronics, and more.

Some different types of labels used in these markets include:

Two Factors

Print darkness and speed are the two factors that determine how a thermal-transfer label is printed. The print darkness tells the print head how much heat to use when burning the dots of the ribbon onto the material. The speed determines how fast the print head must heat up to burn the dots onto the material. Durability and quality are effect by print darkness and speed.

Three Components

Three components in thermal-transfer printing are: a non-movable print head, a ribbon (the ink), and material to be printed on. These three components sandwich the ribbon in the middle. When the print head heats up to a desired temperature, the print head melts the ribbon, in the form of dots, on to the material. Once the dot is transferred from the ribbon to the material it immediately cools down and by the time the material comes out of the printer the ink is dry.

Printers and Ribbons

There are different types of thermal-transfer printers that vary in durability, performance, and design capabilities. The ribbon used in these printers can be either wax, resin, or a combination of both. Ribbons can come in many different colors. Your choice of ribbon determines what material you can use. Different ribbons are used for different types of application and have different benefits. Durability and quality change based on the type of ribbon and printer used.

Labels printed on a thermal-transfer printer can be pre-printed with company logo or static information. Once a label is needed, the variable information can be printed on demand. Paper or synthetic materials can be used for the thermal-transfer printing process.

Some recommended paper materials include:

Some recommended synthetic materials include:

The print head along with the properties of the ribbon essentially produce a high-quality printed image. When durability and quality matter, thermal-transfer printing is a great solution. For more information contact Whitlam Group today!

Manage Your New Nutrition Labels

Array ( [post_title] => Manage Your New Nutrition Labels [post_content] =>

The new style, FDA approved, nutritional facts labels take effect next month.

The agency has stated that due to many companies int the food industry not being ready, enforcement will be delayed for six months, but this is still a good time to ensure you have a plan to be in compliance.

One of the reasons stated for the delay is that many food producers have a large number of existing printed labels in stock that need to be used up, and many have not finished the process of procuring labels to the new design.

One way to help with this problem (and to make managing many SKUs of nutrition labels much easier) is to invest in ID Technology’s labeling system, with optional print/apply head to print the nutrition information right on the label applicator at the time of use.

The 262 print/apply labeling head can be used as the bottom head on a top/bottom labeler or as a bottom only labeler in order to produce the completed printed nutrition label.

On a top/bottom set-up, this allows for the existing nicely printed digital or flexo label to be applied to the top of the package and the complete bottom label with allergen, ingredients and nutritional information be printed on the bottom label.

We recommend using NiceLabel label management to provide full control of the label designs and ensure that only the correct, approved label is printed every time.

Using this system can eliminate the need to source and manage multiple pre-printed label SKUs and prevent being left with inventories of obsolete labels when the copy on the label changes.

In addition, the 262 labeling head can also apply conventional printed labels, allowing our customers to use pre-printed labels for large volume products and the print/apply feature for smaller runs.

Our labeling systems are built in the USA and are designed to be easy to set-up, use and maintain.

How can ID Technology help you meet your objectives for your labeling operations? Contact us today at 888-438-3242 Option#3. You can also email me at dholliday@idtechnology.com. We’ll be sure to get you in touch with an expert, right in your area!

The new style, FDA approved, nutritional facts labels take effect next month.

The agency has stated that due to many companies int the food industry not being ready, enforcement will be delayed for six months, but this is still a good time to ensure you have a plan to be in compliance.

One of the reasons stated for the delay is that many food producers have a large number of existing printed labels in stock that need to be used up, and many have not finished the process of procuring labels to the new design.

One way to help with this problem (and to make managing many SKUs of nutrition labels much easier) is to invest in ID Technology’s labeling system, with optional print/apply head to print the nutrition information right on the label applicator at the time of use.

Manage Your New Nutrition Labels

The 262 print/apply labeling head can be used as the bottom head on a top/bottom labeler or as a bottom only labeler in order to produce the completed printed nutrition label.

On a top/bottom set-up, this allows for the existing nicely printed digital or flexo label to be applied to the top of the package and the complete bottom label with allergen, ingredients and nutritional information be printed on the bottom label.

We recommend using NiceLabel label management to provide full control of the label designs and ensure that only the correct, approved label is printed every time.

Using this system can eliminate the need to source and manage multiple pre-printed label SKUs and prevent being left with inventories of obsolete labels when the copy on the label changes.

In addition, the 262 labeling head can also apply conventional printed labels, allowing our customers to use pre-printed labels for large volume products and the print/apply feature for smaller runs.

Our labeling systems are built in the USA and are designed to be easy to set-up, use and maintain.

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.

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.Product Coding for Protein Producers

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,
