With the recent adoption of human safety measures based on standards such as ISO 13849-1 and CSA Z432/434, machine manufacturers and suppliers must evaluate health and safety risks to determine their design requirements and then construct in accordance with the results of the evaluation. ASCO has developed a way of meeting these standards that not only reduce energy losses, but also allows for an actuator by actuator control that makes for a more efficient way of protecting those working with the machines. Watch the video to see and learn more about what all of this means to you and your customers.
Watch the video and hear how Riverside Natural Foods employed Propack Processing & Packaging Systems to fully integrate a complete line from flowwrapping the nutrition bars to collating and loading them with a LJ dual robotic loading system and then to packaging them in cartons formed on Kliklock Woodman (Bosch Group) equipment.

Elmira Pet Products recently installed a brand new Thiele Ultra Star high-speed, double fill-and-seal bagging system at their 80,000 square foot production facility in Elmira, ON.
The system grabs and opens two bags at a time for filling. Filling accuracy is assured by a set of Duplex Net Weigh Scales also by Thiele located above the bagging system. Pre-set weights of kibbles drop into the bags that are opened two at a time, delivering both speed and accuracy to the operation.
The UltraStar bagger utilizes an Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 1500 graphic terminal to facilitate user-friendly operation for line operators.
While there’s no substitute for 100 percent food safety, having a reliable system in place to identify the source and origin of food contamination is an essential line of defense.
