Engineering on a global scale!

Engineering on a global scale!

Today’s engineering projects are executed by a variety of stakeholders. But, can the process control system provide a reliable basis for effective and efficient collaboration? Manuel Keldenich believes they can.

Traditionally, engineering projects were carried out within a department of the operating company itself, maybe with support from a system integrator or a machine builider. This is now changing  and sticking with familiar working methods, silo mentality and serial work, plant owners and operators will no longer be able to compete. 

New forms of cooperation and knowledge transfer are necessary. One factor is web-based collaboration in engineering, which integrates all stakeholders and ensures that they can work consistently and in parallel. This need can be met with the Simatic PCS neo process control system. The system software is based on web technologies and has a consistent object-oriented data model. It is no longer necessary to install software on specific workstations for administration, engineering, and plant operation. Thanks to HTML5, it is possible to have secure access to the system and to operate it efficiently just requiring a common browser. 

To create an intuitive operating environment, Siemens has simplified the operating philosophy across all applications and implemented the concept of ‘one workbench’ for all applications and tasks: An authorised user can toggle between an engineering view and a monitoring & control (operational) view with one single mouse click. Access to operating elements, control sequences, alarms, or interlocks is therefore directly achievable at any time from a single point of entry. 

Administration is integrated into this concept. License and user management is controlled from here as well as the administration of all software- and security-related procedures. As the applications are carried out via the browser, local installations, such as on-site updates, become increasingly redundant: The application is in the latest version every time it restarts.

Collaboration 
Interdisciplinary collaboration of new project teams assembled from all parts of the world is already a reality for many. Simatic PCS neo tackles this trend with functions designed to enable global collaboration. For example, consistent, object-oriented data management with centralised data storage ensures that everyone involved in a project can access up-to-date data at any time. At the same time, they bring knowledge from their own working environment to the centrally administered project. A clear session concept with automatic consistency checks ensures that all data is always free of contradictions: A new session starts with each opening of a project and all user activities are recorded in their own change context. If several users access the public database, e.g. during concurrent engineering, it is clearly visible which changes the logged on user has made himself and where object processing is currently restricted due to the work of other users. Individual objects are locked automatically by the system and not manually by the user. If changes have been made and can be shared with other colleagues, they must be published. During the publish process, changed object sets are consistently and controllably introduced into the system automatically. On this basis, change tracking and versioning for the engineering data is also implemented. In this way, the various project statuses can be identified and restored at any time.

These technical principles allow engineering and operational processes to be developed simultaneously. Project engineering that is not dependent on the hardware also offers an extremely high degree of flexibility. The following observation shows what this means in practice: Imagine how much coordination effort is saved if an on-site team in the field has access to all project data via mobile devices during commissioning (for example during loop-check) and can complete changes to the central project in real time. In parallel, employees can toggle between engineering and monitoring & control views with a single click – and all on the same device. 

Easy-to-capture screens have been designed for typical processes such as hardware engineering or process signal interconnection. Beginners in engineering with Simatic PCS neo can quickly access the system via intuitive procedures such as drag-and-drop of objects for interconnection in Continuous Function Chart (CFC). At the same time, the understanding of the fundamental object model grows. The fact that not only user groups are supported in a task-oriented manner, but that users can also expect assistance corresponding to their level of experience, can be demonstrated by means of ‘spreadsheet engineering’ which offers the ability to quickly query over all objects. The properties of the query results can then be bundled and edited. 

Further improvements in efficiency can also be expected through another support of individual working methods: The decoupling of the equipment hierarchy from the target hardware means that planning and assignment of the hardware and thus the distribution of the entire system can take place at the latest possible stage. In future, project engineers will be able to dispense with creating channel driver modules and plan technological projects without hardware addressing. Because signals are assigned to real hardware addresses at a very late stage, it is possible, for example, to first plan the cabinet and then generate the technological plan. This so-called late binding, on the other hand, makes it possible to first map the process from templates and then plan the control cabinet. The signal mapping between the equipment hierarchy and the technological (hardware) hierarchy is done using a convenient drag-and-drop in the signal editor. In addition to the support of individual procedures, the user benefits from late binding above all in terms of safety and cost-savings, as changes can be considered and implemented quickly and easily right up to the end.

IT security
Strict adherence to the principle of ‘security by design’ was a primary concern during the design of Simatic PCS neo. Extremely high security standards were applied to the design of the hardware and software from the outset. This includes, for example, taking all security mechanisms known today into consideration when transferring data. In addition to functional tests, the engineers and software developers also continuously checked the security measures already implemented. The development process was carried out in accordance with the international series of standards IEC 62443, Industrial Communication Networks – IT Security for Networks and Systems. These defined secure coding standards provided to coders, architects, and designers with guidelines for producing secure source code.

The implemented security functions then take effect during their subsequent use. Modern encryption processes are obviously used to produce secure communication between web servers and web browsers (client). Access to the system is only possible following authentication and authorisation and the overall communication is based on certificates. Users, computers, or devices must identify themselves using a digital certificate which sits in the background before they are granted access to an application. The new control system also fits into the defense-in-depth concept based on the recommendations in IEC 62443. This deeply structured defense concept combines plant and network security with elements of system integrity to form a comprehensive protection concept. 

Conclusion
Due to its web-based nature, the new process system is designed for interdisciplinary collaboration. No matter whether you work synchronously or asynchronously, it allows a traceable, versioned processing of projects and thus contributes to time and costs savings. At the same time, the handling of individual control system functions has become clearer and more comprehensible – regardless of whether one or more users access the system.

The simplicity of pneumatics meets the advantages of electric actuators

The simplicity of pneumatics meets the advantages of electric actuators

Festo believes it can now offer the simplicity of pneumatics to the world of electric automation, with the electric Simplified Motion Series.

Even if pneumatics is the preferred solution for applications requiring simple movements, the technology is more and more facing a digitalised world. Here, up to date information about actuator status is required to reduce commissioning times, enabling cost-efficient production and deal with shorter product life-cycles.

Moreover, even if pneumatic actuators – regarding investment cost – are the most attractive technology, total cost of ownership must also be considered. Diagnostics and big data require a seamless flow of information from the workpiece to the controller and cloud. Traditional pneumatic systems struggle with this challenge, as the compressed air cannot transmit data. With these factors being considered, it is not surprising that machine builders see electric motion more and more as valid compliment or even alternative to pneumatics.

Simple movements 
So, why has the move from pneumatic to electric not happened? Looking at the needs and trends it would be expected that the transformation would be far faster than it is. This might be explained by the evolution in new pneumatic technology, solving new demands with mature technology. However, the more obvious explanation is that most of the complex motion in machines is already solved with electric actuators and simple movements are easily solved with pneumatics.
And in this field, existing electric actuators have some shortcomings: they are still too costly and too complex to commission. A pneumatic system can be put into operation with moderate expertise and a screwdriver, it needs higher training, electric expertise and software know-how to make electric cylinders run between two positions. Festo took this market demand for simple electric actuators and solved it in the new Simplified Motion Series.

Simplified installation
Simplified Motion Series from Festo therefore is not only a new line of electric actuators, it is designed from the bottom up to offer simplicity in installation.

The core component of the Simplified Motion Series, launched in September 2019, is a new integrated motor with a permanently attached drive unit, available pre-mounted to a range of mechanical actuators. This enables rotary and linear movements with a variety of formats for the actuator. This concept not only reduces installation space but also minimizes installation time and cost in production processes.

Simplified motion profiles
A mechanical installation concept itself does not help close the gap to pneumatics, the deciding feature is functionality. Therefore, it is important to concentrate on reducing the motion complexity of the Simplified Motion Series actuator to build a real alternative.

A simple movement between two mechanically defined end positions with a pneumatic actuator is done with a hard stop or cushioning and is not always 100% reproduceable in cycle time, Simplified Motion Series implements a fixed acceleration and deceleration ramp with a constant speed to realize a gently cushioned and reproduceable movement.

Pneumatics has the wonderful functionality to switch from a dynamic movement to a pressing mode without additional cost. With electrics this can only be done with programming effort in traditional electric actuators but is solved in a smart way in the new series. Here the speed-controlled distance can be shortened, transferring it smoothly in a force controlled pressing and movement with zero programming effort.

Simplified operation and control
The concept of the simplicity of pneumatics with the advantages of electric actuators is extended to the control element, combining software free commissioning with state-of-the-art control options for simple actuators: Digital IO and IO-Link.
The motor is equipped with just two standard connectors and is based on the „plug and work“ principle: no software and no need to parameterise.

Providing the same ease of use, all adjustments can be set directly on the motor using 3 buttons and an easy to understand LED menu, the speed level and force level for the two directions can be set. In addition, the buttons are used to set the reference end position and the transfer point from speed to force control. Finally, all movements can be tested by Demo-Mode directly on the device. This enables all axis on a machine to be fully commissioned before the software engineer has even opened their laptop.

At its simplest, the actuators are controlled using two digital inputs, similar to a 5/3-way pneumatic valve, allowing a low-cost installation. Using two digital outputs, it is also possible to detect if the end positions have been reached, like a cylinder switch – but without the additional cost.

The most interesting feature though is IO-Link® functionality integrated as standard, bringing the simple electric actuators into the world of industry 4.0 and digitalisation. With IO-Link, all parameters can be adjusted remotely, copied on multiple drives or used as backup in case of actuator breakdown. Moreover, many process parameters like travelled distance and cycles can be read out easily for predictive maintenance use or sending to the cloud.

Finally, with IO-Link control it is possible to stop a movement at a defined position in the middle of the stroke, avoiding mechanical end stops like with pneumatics. This makes Simplified Motion Series even more flexible.

As all actuators of the series are always containing Digital I/O and IO-Link in one, it´s also possible to use the advantages of both options, like commissioning with IO-Link and control with Digital-I/O.

Product overview
With all these features of software, free commissioning and simple control by Digital I/O and IO-Link® bundled in a compact integrated actuator unit, thanks to Simplified Motion Series the simplicity of pneumatics is now combined for the first time with the advantages of electric automation, enabling machine builders to use electric actuators also for very simple tasks, bringing their machines to a new level.

The simplicity of pneumatics meets the advantages of electric actuators

Festo believes it can now offer the simplicity of pneumatics to the world of electric automation, with the electric Simplified Motion Series.

Even if pneumatics is the preferred solution for applications requiring simple movements, the technology is more and more facing a digitalised world. Here, up to date information about actuator status is required to reduce commissioning times, enabling cost-efficient production and deal with shorter product life-cycles.

Moreover, even if pneumatic actuators – regarding investment cost – are the most attractive technology, total cost of ownership must also be considered. Diagnostics and big data require a seamless flow of information from the workpiece to the controller and cloud. Traditional pneumatic systems struggle with this challenge, as the compressed air cannot transmit data. With these factors being considered, it is not surprising that machine builders see electric motion more and more as valid compliment or even alternative to pneumatics.

Simple movements 
So, why has the move from pneumatic to electric not happened? Looking at the needs and trends it would be expected that the transformation would be far faster than it is. This might be explained by the evolution in new pneumatic technology, solving new demands with mature technology. However, the more obvious explanation is that most of the complex motion in machines is already solved with electric actuators and simple movements are easily solved with pneumatics.
And in this field, existing electric actuators have some shortcomings: they are still too costly and too complex to commission. A pneumatic system can be put into operation with moderate expertise and a screwdriver, it needs higher training, electric expertise and software know-how to make electric cylinders run between two positions. Festo took this market demand for simple electric actuators and solved it in the new Simplified Motion Series.

Simplified installation
Simplified Motion Series from Festo therefore is not only a new line of electric actuators, it is designed from the bottom up to offer simplicity in installation.

The core component of the Simplified Motion Series, launched in September 2019, is a new integrated motor with a permanently attached drive unit, available pre-mounted to a range of mechanical actuators. This enables rotary and linear movements with a variety of formats for the actuator. This concept not only reduces installation space but also minimizes installation time and cost in production processes.

Simplified motion profiles
A mechanical installation concept itself does not help close the gap to pneumatics, the deciding feature is functionality. Therefore, it is important to concentrate on reducing the motion complexity of the Simplified Motion Series actuator to build a real alternative.

A simple movement between two mechanically defined end positions with a pneumatic actuator is done with a hard stop or cushioning and is not always 100% reproduceable in cycle time, Simplified Motion Series implements a fixed acceleration and deceleration ramp with a constant speed to realize a gently cushioned and reproduceable movement.

Pneumatics has the wonderful functionality to switch from a dynamic movement to a pressing mode without additional cost. With electrics this can only be done with programming effort in traditional electric actuators but is solved in a smart way in the new series. Here the speed-controlled distance can be shortened, transferring it smoothly in a force controlled pressing and movement with zero programming effort.

Simplified operation and control
The concept of the simplicity of pneumatics with the advantages of electric actuators is extended to the control element, combining software free commissioning with state-of-the-art control options for simple actuators: Digital IO and IO-Link.
The motor is equipped with just two standard connectors and is based on the „plug and work“ principle: no software and no need to parameterise.

Providing the same ease of use, all adjustments can be set directly on the motor using 3 buttons and an easy to understand LED menu, the speed level and force level for the two directions can be set. In addition, the buttons are used to set the reference end position and the transfer point from speed to force control. Finally, all movements can be tested by Demo-Mode directly on the device. This enables all axis on a machine to be fully commissioned before the software engineer has even opened their laptop.

At its simplest, the actuators are controlled using two digital inputs, similar to a 5/3-way pneumatic valve, allowing a low-cost installation. Using two digital outputs, it is also possible to detect if the end positions have been reached, like a cylinder switch – but without the additional cost.

The most interesting feature though is IO-Link® functionality integrated as standard, bringing the simple electric actuators into the world of industry 4.0 and digitalisation. With IO-Link, all parameters can be adjusted remotely, copied on multiple drives or used as backup in case of actuator breakdown. Moreover, many process parameters like travelled distance and cycles can be read out easily for predictive maintenance use or sending to the cloud.

Finally, with IO-Link control it is possible to stop a movement at a defined position in the middle of the stroke, avoiding mechanical end stops like with pneumatics. This makes Simplified Motion Series even more flexible.

As all actuators of the series are always containing Digital I/O and IO-Link in one, it´s also possible to use the advantages of both options, like commissioning with IO-Link and control with Digital-I/O.

Product overview
With all these features of software, free commissioning and simple control by Digital I/O and IO-Link® bundled in a compact integrated actuator unit, thanks to Simplified Motion Series the simplicity of pneumatics is now combined for the first time with the advantages of electric automation, enabling machine builders to use electric actuators also for very simple tasks, bringing their machines to a new level.

IO-Link masters with OPC UA interface

Pepperl+Fuchs believes it is the first company to offer IO-Link masters with an OPC UA interface, helping to pave the way for end-to-end, transparent, and seamless communication from field level to the cloud.

The company has achieved this goal through acquisition of Comtrol Corporation, a pioneer in the field of Ethernet-based industrial communication and a provider of IO-Link masters. 

According to Pepperl+Fuchs, the combining of OPC UA and IO-Link opens up new possibilities for end-to-end, transparent, and seamless communication from the lowest field level to the cloud. If IO-Link functions as the interface for the identification, diagnostics, and parameter data from the sensor technology, OPC UA provides a solution for transmitting this data to PC or cloud-based systems in full and in parallel with time-critical control communication.

Growth predicted for cobot market

A new collaborative market report from Interact Analysis has found that the growth rate of collaborative robots (cobots) is leading the robotics industry. It also says that logistics will surpass automotive to be the second largest end user of cobots by 2023, with electronics in first place.

According to ‘The Collaborative Robot Market – 2019’  global revenues from cobot production exceeded $550 million in 2018. This was almost a 60% increase over 2017; and over 19,000 cobots were shipped. 

Interact Analysis has forecast that revenues for cobots will reach $5.6 billion in 2027, accounting for almost one-third of the total robotics market, and that <5kg and 5-9 kg cobots will represent the majority of sales in 2023. 

According to the report the three biggest application areas for collaborative robots will be material handling, assembly and pick & place. But these functions, which accounted for 75% of cobot revenues in 2018, will drop to below of 70% total revenues by 2023, as other functions for cobots are developed. 

The use of cobots in non-industrial applications will play a significant role in the coming years - in sectors such as life sciences, logistics, and the hospitality sector.

Growth predicted for cobot market

A new collaborative market report from Interact Analysis has found that the growth rate of collaborative robots (cobots) is leading the robotics industry. It also says that logistics will surpass automotive to be the second largest end user of cobots by 2023, with electronics in first place.

According to ‘The Collaborative Robot Market – 2019’  global revenues from cobot production exceeded $550 million in 2018. This was almost a 60% increase over 2017; and over 19,000 cobots were shipped. 

Interact Analysis has forecast that revenues for cobots will reach $5.6 billion in 2027, accounting for almost one-third of the total robotics market, and that <5kg and 5-9 kg cobots will represent the majority of sales in 2023. 

According to the report the three biggest application areas for collaborative robots will be material handling, assembly and pick & place. But these functions, which accounted for 75% of cobot revenues in 2018, will drop to below of 70% total revenues by 2023, as other functions for cobots are developed. 

The use of cobots in non-industrial applications will play a significant role in the coming years - in sectors such as life sciences, logistics, and the hospitality sector.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
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.
Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link
Customer Engagement and More – GS1 Digital Link
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.

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.

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.

Podcast – Lasers and SustainabilityOur 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.

Podcast – Lasers and Sustainability

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.
