Heat seal bench top banders offer a cost effective way to achieve tamper evidence
Banding Machine for Paper and Film
Capability in Packaging, UV, Converting
JENTON GROUP 
Jenton Ariana is expanding its range of products for                                   food manufacturers this year as vistors will see. In addition to its range of seal testers for gas flushed thermoformed packs (typically for bakery), the company has developed and sold several seal testers for ready meals applications with random infeed up to 140 per minute. “We see this market growing because of the conflicting demands of long shelf life delivered by barrier films with perfect seals contrasting with the need for easy peel,”  
says Richard Little, managing director of Jenton that specialises in UV disinfection. In the food industry,applications include the treatment of HVAC coilsand air ducts and surface applications such as conveyor belts as well as the direct treatment of food.
JenAct has ten granted patents on this technology and can act in a consultative role to help advise what UV can actually achievein any given application before then advising whichthe most appropriateequipment for the job is.
Seal testing along with pack stacking and UV
Jenton has launched the Bandit range of heat seal bench op banders which areavailable in two tape widths -30 and 50mm. Plain or printed materialscan be used on the units as well as products with cross sectional dimensionof up  to 240mm.These small machines are ideal for banding individual products for labelling or security or in multiples for promotions or shelf stacking.The units are compact, are easily portable and they can apply bands at up to 25cycles per minute without any need for compressed air. A simple tension adjustment is included to suit the product being banded, along with a patented tape guide mechanism to allow trouble free tape feeding.

Measuring the quality of chocolate
Viscosity control system offers gains for confectionery
“Monitoring the viscosity of chocolate, rather than its temperature, optimises the process as it gets over the problem of heat being given off when it solidifies,” explains Richard Little, director at Jenton International. “This can therefore ensure the quality of the chocolate more accurately,” he says.
Taking place at the same time as Düsseldorf-based interpack was Metpack, the exhibition for metal packaging in Essen and Jenton International was sharing a stand with Opti-Color. Traditionally, the J-VC viscosity control system from Opti-Color has been used for coatings and inks but, it has been found to be ideal for monitoring and controlling the process quality of products such as chocolate, wax and fats.
Machinery Update, Sept 2018
Partnership of the Year               PPMA 2017                          
Sponsored by Machinery Update, the winner of this category were Dimaco and Starflex Packaging Europe for joining forces to create a new machine that is relevant to many users. Veri-WEIGH is a system that combines multi parameter product verification from a small footprint and was launched at the PPMA 2017 Show. Highly commended were Tekpak & Ilapack.
Benchtop paper bander added to Bandit range
SHOW 2018
In addition to bundling, Bandit machines are used for tamper evidence, labelling and multipack/BOGOF applications as well. Jenton holds a stock of these and other larger and more automated machines, many of which are available for hire. As machine manufacturers,Jenton can add value to banders with various forms of stands, benches and other automation. The machines can be demonstrated at its Whitchurch showroom for anyone interested in the range.
Jenton’s range of Bandit banding machines has a new member – the 180-30 benchtop paper banding unit. With a footprint approximately the size of a sheet of A4 paper, there can be few packing /finishing areas without space for the new Bandit unit, reckons Jenton.
“We’re pleased with this new machine” says Richard Little, managing director of Jenton, “users will be familiar with thearchless method of operation, thus avoiding the possibility of paper jams in guides and runners but the extra  exibility of stable temperature and dwell control is a significant improvement in this entry level machine”.
Packs up to 180mm wide can be accommodated. Improvements for this year include electronically adjustable heater temperature (with display) and sealing dwell time which allows The Bandit to be set up to be used with a variety of paper sources and materials.
The new machines are designed to simply bundle stacks of printed materials, cash, small cartons and multipacks together with securely sealed paper bands. Paper is 30mm wide and can be supplied in brown, white or custom printed.

Banding, Bagging, Label and Data Verification Are On Show
Jenton International will be showing a wide range of packaging and processing equipment for the food, pharmaceutical, beverage, medical device and cosmetics industries at the PPMA Total Show. The company will be highlighting its well proven Jenton Bandit table-top heatsealing banding machines with the latest large arch systems on display along with samples of products banded with printed materials. Jenton Ariana will be showcasing its convergers,suitable for thermoformedand other conveyorised packs, inline seal testers for MAP/CAP packs and trays, pad placing systems and also stackers for multipacks. Meanwhile, the JenAct GRU-V and UV-Torpedo sanitisation systems for reducing air and surface pathogens in a food production environment and Jenton Dimaco’s on and offline label and data verification systems will be featured on its stand. In response to demand
for packaging weight to be reduced while maintaining shelf life and performance, Jenton Packaging ‘Emplex’continuous bag and pouch sealer with vacuum and gas flush will also be included for the first time.
Emplex continuous band sealers offer speed, seal integrity and versatility. Suitable for both hand-fed and conveyorised products and developed for the medical industry, Emplex band sealers provide fast, precise and strong seals. The Emplex MPS 7103 and 7503 heavy duty, high speed vacuum band sealers are equipped with a vacuum and or nitrogen gas flush system.
a short shelf life and verify both the packaging as well as the labelling. PPMA Total will see the launch of a new vision/ weigh/metal detector combo with minimum line length. Jenton Ariana’s convergers are simple and easy to clean, operate and maintain and have independent adjustable working and infeed height, quick change belts and long life clutches. The JenAct GRU-V is a wall mounted UV air purifier which is specially designed to kill 99.99% of airborne micro-organisms and viruses preventing contamination caused by untreated airflow. The system produces no harmful particles, no odours and no harmful chemicals. It is made from high grade materials with shatter proof bulbs and is ideal for food production environments.

Waste Not, Want Not…
The Jenton Group Thinks Food Waste is Sustainable Key.
Dr Russell Sion from Dimaco (UK), part of the Jenton Group.An example of this comes fromJenACT, a subsidiary of Jenton Intl, that worked in partnership with Marine Products (Scotland) to develop a system for extending the shelf life of salmon fillets by exposing them to ultraviolet light. The team came up with a suitable UVC conveyor and
A WRAP report in 2015 determined that by extending a ‘use by’ date by just one day, up to £600 million could be saved each year,” says
microbiological testing together with shelf-life testing. The result was a clear demonstration that the shelf-life of the salmon fillets increased from 10 to 20 days – far more than the one day discussed in the WRAP report. Another area that WRAP has investigated is the effect of leaking packs on the waste associated with processed food, while a further area, and possibly even more infuriating, is food returned to the processor because the labelling is missing, or the labelling is incorrect. Typical errors include incorrect ‘use-by’ dates or missing allergen information.
conducted several rounds of
Until now, all Jenton Ariana seal testers have tested thermoformed and top sealed trays using a proprietary online 100% pressure based technology. In short, a defined pressure is applied to all packs and the deformation measured. By comparing this deformation signature to that ofa known good pack, a leaking packcan be detected and rejected while still in high care, and all without affecting line speed. Where the technology often fails however is spotting a pack that is currently sound, but one that is likely to leak. That’s where vision comes in – literally to see food trapped in the seal itself. This isespecially common where the food is automatically loaded into the thermoformed packs or trays and a trace of food such as spaghetti, becomes caught in the seal. Although it probably will not affect the seal ntegrity at that instant, once it starts to dry it will shrink and the pack will be compromised. The example of the bacteria & spores on fruit is also an excellent example of combining technologies. Exposure to one frequency of UV light will render the bacteria harmless, whereas exposure to a differing frequencyof UV light will cause the spores to fluoresce light in the visible spectrum which can be detected using machine vision systems. By using machine vision in combination with other techniques, it is possible to create extremely robust and economic systems to significantly reduce food waste.
