Total represents Videojet Technologies’ first public appearance since its merger with Willett International, following which “Videojet is now able to provide a coding and marking system to suit virtually any application and budget”.
The company says for those seeking “quality coding that is both affordable and requires minimal operator attention and maintenance”, it has introduced the 43S small character inkjet printer.
This system is said to deliver reliable, consistent operation for a range of printing applications. The combination of clean start and clean stop features automates regular printhead cleaning, increasing uptime.
The second newcomer to the inkjet range is the Willett 620 modular, medium to large character printer. This uses ‘micro-valve’ technology to deliver “simple solutions”, typically for outer-case coding.
Precision drop placement claims to ensure “superior print quality of up to 40dpi” and, because the heads apply a large number of small dots, as opposed to a smaller number of large dots, fluid consumption is “significantly reduced”.
The Videojet range of Focus S-Series CO2 lasers has been enhanced with the introduction of the Focus S60 high speed steered beam laser coding system, which allows high-speed applications to benefit from the superior print quality offered.
The Focus S-Series range also now has a new graphical user interface and the ability to conform to 21 CFR Part 11.
Also new is the Videojet DataFlex thermal transfer overprinter which promises “high quality printing, superior performance and low cost of operation”.

Material abilities on show
Field Group will demonstrate its skills in cartonboard engineering along with its ability to effectively combine this material with other substrates such as in the Christmas gift carton it produced for Glenfiddich.
The company’s adeptness in incorporating movement within a pack will be demonstrated too, a good example being the Elizabeth Shaw carton that features several slide out draws.
Field’s expertise also extends to plastic using new technology to measure and control the cartons crease specification. It will be presenting its “world first” machine erectable polypropylene carton system which allows high quality plastic cartons to be produced in high volumes.
In composite tubes Field says it has developed a number of “revolutionary styles” over the past 18 months, including the Sphelix which combines paper, cartonboard and plastic to provide the benefits of a traditional composite tube with “excellent product visibility”. Meanwhile the “smooth tube” is said to offer a cost-effective alternative to tin plate, while achieving the same high quality appearance.
Making its debut will be a flat-based composite tube made entirely of paper-based material. Field believes it is the first UK company to offer such a tube, which has a flat base – as opposed to the more usual deep recessed, broader base – and provides a high quality, neater finish.

Form-fill-seal standards raised
The centrepiece of Sandiacre Packaging Machinery’s stand will be its new TG250-RC continuous motion vertical form-fill-seal machine which “delivers new potential and savings”.
The company says that, from an engineering perspective, machine footprint, ease of maintenance and performance are the key areas. A “radically reduced” footprint makes the TG250-RC suited to environments where space is at a premium and, due to a reduction in the number of parts, maintenance is said to be both simplified and cost-effective.
Sandiacre says new approaches to routine change parts make the machine easier to use, save time and result in increased output. It also has improved accessibility, making it safer and, again, more time efficient.
It has been designed for flexibility with an extensive range of optional equipment, making it suitable for a “countless applications” across many market sectors.
Reciprocating jaw motion delivers constant film speed, leading to better back and cross seals, consistent bag length and reduced strain on the film.

IWK’s intelligent blister packer
German manufacturer IWK is launching onto the UK market a blister packer with an intelligent control system, which it says for the first time allows sealing parameters to be kept constant, irrespective of changes to the cycle time.
As a result, the Blisterpac BP20 Series is said to require considerably less time for initial validation and can be run at different production outputs without the need for re-validation.
The control system adjusts speed and dwell relationships between the various drives. The sealing parameters – and hence seal integrity – can therefore remain constant, maintaining validation.

Romaco Hapa cracks RSS codes
Romaco says new guidelines issued by the US Food & Drug Administration indicate that it will become mandatory for each unit dose of pharmaceutical products to be coded in a bid to reduce medication errors.
With the space available for each unit dose being potentially very small, Romaco Hapa has been working in close co-operation with a number of pharmaceutical manufacturers on the implementation of reduced space symbology codes. This compact code technology includes fields for both fixed and variable data such as lot and expiry date.
The Romaco Hapa 730 Digiprint on show is said to lend itself perfectly to this task. Codes are generated automatically and imported into the relevant artwork immediately prior to the production run using Hapa’s Place-It software.
For online verification of RSS codes, Romaco Laetus will demonstrate its 2D-Cosi 8×0 scanner, configured for a variety of symbologies.
The company’s Noack 623 blister packer will be running with the Pill Protect secondary barrier system for pharmaceutical blisters, the “first solution for enhancing the child-resistant properties of blisters to achieve BS8404 certification”.
