How do you automate the packaging process in a made-to-order world? Consumer demand for different sizes, shapes and flavors has completely changed the way CPG brand owners and manufacturers produce and package their goods. And for OEMs, this trend means that your packaging equipment needs to perform differently than ever before.

The reality is, most packaging lines aren’t equipped for rapidly changing demand. Conventional conveyance just can’t keep up. Producers are finding themselves in a highly manual conundrum of delivering in this high-mix environment without the proper automated packaging solutions to make it cost-effective.The Amazon Effect has an unquestionable impact on how retailers go to market. But, the underlying movement of changing consumer demands and expectations goes far beyond brick or click shopping habits. Manufacturers are equally pressured to produce and package high-mix, low-volume products as demand for specialization and variety packs is doing nothing but increasing, and fast.liquid vacuum packing machine

Imagine there are a dozen products running through the same packaging line. A product may run for a few days, then the hours-long changeover process takes place, causing all work-in-progress to stop before the next product has its turn. This practice can mean building up a month’s worth of inventory for each product because it could be that long before it gets time back on the line again.

This scenario isn’t uncommon. Living with lengthy changeovers is something producers do, because given budget constraints and legacy systems, they just have to.

Through an army of delta robots, a variable pitch infeed and a couple of smart valves, most machines in operation today can expand pack sizes, from 6 to 12 to 24. It takes a while for the changeover, hurting productivity, but it is possible.

With the Amazon Effect however, you may need a variety of flavors in each of those six, 12 or 24 packs. From here, things get really manual, really fast. Top CPG companies and local producers alike are finding themselves literally unpacking single-product packs and manually repacking into rainbow packs. Picture the packaging waste. The money lost. The already critical challenge of finding workers, compounded by needing even more manual labor.

As OEMs, you have an opportunity to solve these challenges for your customers using efficient, agile and intelligent automated packaging solutions.

The company has believed that its well-equipped R&D team has been instrumental, over the years, to give the customers what they exactly want. Strengthening the company through R&D is among the key objectives of the company.

Webbing is a woven fabric that is distinguishable by its various material compositions, strength variations and widths. The webbing process essentially involves yarns that are woven via looms to create strips. While it is generally comparable to rope for its harnessing function, webbing is an extremely versatile component used in an array of industry applications, ranging from military apparel to automotive parts. Typically, webbing is fabricated in solid or tubular form, with each type having different applications and functions. While ropes are typically thick in texture, webbing is produced in extremely lightweight parts. The primary materials used in the production of webbing include variations of polyester, nylon, and polypropylene. Cotton webbing is also available and is commonly used in commercial applications, including clothing apparel. Webbing is also customizable in a series of colors, designs and prints, and manufacturers can fabricate reflective webbing for safety applications.nylon multifilament yarn

Solid webbing is also known as flat webbing and is fabricated in varying degrees of thickness. Distinguished by its flat aesthetic, solid webbing is commonly used for applications like seatbelts. It is lightweight though it is susceptible to tearing, as stress from use tends to affect the outer surface of the material. Solid webbing is generally too stiff to function in applications that require knots, which is why this type of webbing is best suited for applications where the material can be sewn into a larger product. Backpack straps, for instance, are examples of this type of solid webbing.

Tubular webbing is thicker and more durable than solid webbing and is composed of two sheets of fabric. It is suitable for knotting applications (like a rope for hoisting) and carries tension better than solid webbing. For functions like climbing, experts recommend utilizing tubular webbing that is woven into a continuous loop.
Nylon webbing is a high strength elastic material that is commonly used for belt applications (specifically, flat nylon). This material tends to stretch approximately 2% the length of the webbing when it is wet. When looking at how to make nylon webbing, experts warn that nylon webbing should not be exposed to water continuously, as the material tends to absorb liquid and may harbor mildew if it is not maintained properly

LED displays are now a $5 billion global market, with the Americas region reaching a key milestone of $1 billion for the first time in 2017.PVC LED Neon

The data comes from the market research firm Futuresource Consulting, which makes displays one of a relatively short list of vertical markets it studies. I note this because news searches on digital signage and displays are cluttered with pricey but mostly worthless reports from Indian research factories that produce encouraging reports on absolutely anything they can dream up.

“The introduction of MicroLED by Sony in 2016 caused a great stir of excitement in the industry, but it was thought to be a measure of what was possible, not what was viable in the near term,” says Chris McIntyre-Brown, Associate Director at Futuresource Consulting. “However, this year has seen far more buzz around new chip-on-boards (COB) solutions, MiniLED and glue-on-board. All offer different benefits, but it is really the potential of MiniLED that has the industry excited. Troublingly though, are the lack of standards around MiniLED, MicroLED and indeed the LED industry as a whole. This is creating confusion – and that certainly needs to be addressed.”
1000 percent agreed there. As someone trying to watch this emerging market, trying to put a finger on what really is micro LED, mini LED and so on is very, very tough.

I’ve not seen the report ($$$$) but a press release says it goes into the competitive landscape, which is very cluttered but as with most emerging businesses, sees consolidation: The LED market has also witnessed strong merger and acquisition activity in recent years, with display vendors looking to access new technologies, increase their geographical footprint or diversify their customer bases. Futuresource expects to see this activity continue in the coming years as the market matures.

“An area to watch will be the new entrants launching LED products, typically coming from other areas of the visual display market. Indeed, it is increasingly rare to find a professional display vendor without LED in its range – although there are still a number of heavyweights in adjacent display areas yet to enter,” adds McIntyre-Brown.

Futuresource also expects service, support and localization to become more important with established international display brands expected to grow in stature.

That’s a polite way of saying integrators and end-users have had the painful experience and now know they don’t want to deal with 12-hour time zone differences and equally yawning language gaps between North America and China. Futuresource expects big growth in LED through at least 2022. It is now almost impossible to find a vertical market or end application where LED displays haven’t been optimized for both indoor and outdoor applications and this is for good reason. “The industry is poised to take the next step in technological advancement and with that we see the LED display community beginning to wonder just how much share it can take from the giant that is the LCD industry.”

LED display supplier NanoLumens has installed numerous large-format curved LED displays at the John F. Kennedy (JFK) International Airport in the US.Installed across the airport’s international terminal, the curved LED displays are part of a multi-phased technology upgrade that aims to improve the passenger experience.indoor and outdoor led display

NanoLumens partnered with digital signage expert firm Creative Realities to integrate the LED displays.They will be mainly used for showing advertisements across JFK.

The new displays feature small panels of pixels, known as nixels. These allow for simpler installations and maintenance compared to single-screen designs.The brightness of the displays can be adjusted to ensure consistent visibility. They also use off-axis viewing angles so all passengers can see the content.

Creative Realities business development senior vice-president Paul Kline announced that the terminal specified NanoLumens’ striking displays, including curved and double-sided models.

“More than 20 million people come through this terminal each year, so the advertising and exposure opportunities are enormous.“These displays leverage modern technology while providing concrete benefits for their business and passengers.”

Designed to adapt to the existing architecture of the facility, the new displays are mounted on an overhead wall that passengers pass under when they move through the terminal.The latest installation follows the first NanoLumens display deployed in 2017. Now, JFK’s Terminal 4 has deployed a new 40ft-wide curved display, exclusively for advertising.

Kline added: “They needed something commensurate with their position on the world stage, and they understood that NanoLumens’ wealth of knowledge, experience, and ability to design custom-curved LED displays to nearly any specification would result in a world-class presentation.”

In February 2018, JFK International Airport’s Terminal 4 collaborated with CrowdVision to revamp operations, layouts and processes across the terminal.

City Place developers are trying to get approval for an architectural lighting display.indoor full color led display screen

Construction at the WellSky building at College and 69 Highway finished last month. Along with the standard building features, there's also a light display on the top of the building.

Developers held a demonstration of the display Tuesday night to show Overland Park officials and residents what it's all about.

The display is a painting by a local artist, translated into an LED light show.

Right now, there are not any city codes or ordinances to regulate the usage of architectural and digital lights.

The real estate developer, Kenneth Block, said it's not signage, it's not a billboard and they're not advertising anything. They just want to add public art to Overland Park's landscape.

"For us, it's about creating buildings that are more than a place where you just go to work every day," Block said. "We're trying to create an ability to have people come to our building feel like they're someplace special."

"So in our case, we're trying to bring art to everyone."

A spokesperson for the City of Overland Park told FOX4 they're going to discuss codes and ordinances related to the light display on the building at a meeting on Sept. 9.

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today introduced its latest innovations in modular MicroLED display technology during its annual First Look CES event at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. The revolutionary new Micro LED technology designs featured at the event included: a new 75” display, a 219” The Wall as well as other various groundbreaking sizes, shapes and configurations for a next-generation modular Micro LED display – a 2019 CES Best of Innovation Award winner.outdoor fixed led display

“For decades, Samsung has led the way in next-generation display innovation,” said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “Our Micro LED technology is at the forefront of the next screen revolution with intelligent, customizable displays that excel in every performance category. Samsung Micro LED has no boundaries, only endless possibilities.”
Featuring self-emissive technology and modular capabilities, Samsung’s Micro LED displays deliver unparalleled picture quality, versatility and design. These transformative TV displays are made up of individual modules of self-emissive Micro LEDs, featuring millions of inorganic red, green and blue microscopic LED chips that emit their own light to produce brilliant colors on screen – delivering unmatched picture quality that surpasses any display technology currently available on the market.

At last year’s CES, Samsung introduced Micro LED by unveiling The Wall, the critically acclaimed, award-winning 146” Micro LED display. Due to the technical advancements in the ultra-fine pitch semiconductor packaging processthat narrow the gap between the microscopic LED chips, Samsung has been able to create a stunning 4K Micro LED display in a smaller, more home-friendly 75” form factor.
Thanks to the modular nature of Micro LED, this technology offers flexibility in screen size that allows users to customize it to fit any room or space. By adding Micro LED modules, users can expand their display to any size they desire. The modular functionality of Micro LED will allow users in the future to create the ultimate display evenat irregular 9×3, 1×7 or 5×1 screen sizesthat suits their spatial, aesthetic and functional needs.

Samsung’s Micro LED technology also optimizes the content no matter the size and shape of the screen. Even when adding more modules, Samsung Micro LED displays can scale to increase the resolution — all while keeping the pixel density constant. Additionally, Micro LED can support everything from the standard 16:9 content, to 21:9 widescreen films, to unconventional aspect ratios like 32:9, or even 1:1 – without having to make any compromises in its picture quality.
