Unpacking can be optimised too
Beckum, 26. July 2017

BEUMER has developed a film that allows for quick and easy opening without the use of tools:

BEUMER Group's efficient stretch film packaging system BEUMER stretch hood A can be used in various different industries. The systems supplier can now provide the system with a newly developed easy opening hood: this worldwide innovation allows employees in retail stores and logistics centres to quickly and easily remove the film when unpacking or repacking the goods, without the use of any cutting tools.

There had not been a packaging system for pallets on the market that did not require the operator to open the film with a cutting tool. This conventional opening method poses the risk of hurting yourself or your colleagues, or damaging the product. This can be expensive for companies and, of course, increases the risk of accidents. The Easy Opening hood makes it easier for employees in logistics centres, while saving a lot of time. To achieve this BEUMER, together with a well-known film supplier, developed a technology that allows you to open the film along a precise tear line in the centre, without affecting the safety function of the stretch hood. The user can open the film quickly and easily, with no tools required. This considerably increases unpacking productivity. After collaborating closely with its film supplier for decades, BEUMER, the machine and systems supplier, had generated this idea for film preparation.

BEUMER Group at the POWTECH 2017

BEUMER Group will exhibit its high level of expertise as a single-source provider for filling, palletising and packaging technologies at POWTECH 2017. Considered the leading trade fair for processing, analysis, and handling of powder and bulk material, the show takes place from 26 to 28 September in Nuremberg, Germany. Conveying systems will also be featured, backed by the system supplier's comprehensive customer support team. Whether the systems are designed for building material, cement, or chemical products – BEUMER offers everything from one source.

The behaviour of powders and bulk material can change entirely according to operating conditions, handling methods and the intended use. It varies depending on the size and shape of the particles, bulk density, compressibility, cohesive strength, humidity, oil content and the kind of chemical reaction to the atmospheric conditions. This impacts the flow behaviour, which has a considerable influence on how the conveying, filling, palletising and packaging systems are to be designed. BEUMER Group designs, constructs and installs systems that are tailored in detail to the individual requirements of the user.

With its belt conveyors, the system supplier provides economic and sustainable solutions for bulk material transport. The belt conveyors are able to negotiate curves and are designed either as open troughed belt conveyors or as closed Pipe Conveyors. Belt conveyors can be adapted optimally to the topography of the environment due to their ability to negotiate rough terrain, long distances and large differences in height. By overlapping narrow horizontal and vertical curves, belt conveyors fit seamlessly within existing terrain. BEUMER Group will also provide information on belt bucket elevators and high-capacity belt bucket elevators for particularly large delivery rates and heights.

As a single-source provider, BEUMER Group supplies and installs the packaging lines and adjusts them to the products of the customer. The BEUMER fillpac R filling machine fills bulk material from the building materials industry and other industrial pulverized goods into bags in an efficient and gentle way and with the required throughput. It can fill very fine to very coarse materials into different bag formats and types, such as valve bottom bags and flat valve bags. BEUMER Group has now complemented the rotary filling machine with a BEUMER bag placer and a ream magazine. This means that performance and efficiency can be further increased. The highly efficient form fill seal system BEUMER fillpac FFS is used in the chemical and petrochemical industries. It forms bags from a prefabricated tubular PE film and fills them with the product of the customer.The BEUMER bag tester is a new addition to the product range: The testing device is easy to transport and enables users to exactly determine the venting capacity of any type of valve bag and therefore their suitability – including all paper and plastic layers, and glued areas.

After filling, the bags are then stacked on pallets. For this, BEUMER Group offers the BEUMER paletpac high-capacity palletiser. It is incorporated into high-performance packaging lines to process even sensitive and valuable products as well as products with special flow characteristics in a gentle and efficient manner. Depending on the product requirements, it can be equipped with a clamp-type turning device or a twin-belt turning device. BEUMER Group offers the BEUMER robotpac, a space-saving articulated robot, for palletising cartons, boxes, canisters or trays. This fully automatic machine is able to solve even complex palletising and de-palletising challenges reliably and efficiently.

During transport, the palletised products must be secured on the pallet and protected against dust, rain or other atmospheric influences. The BEUMER stretch hood high capacity stretch hood system can be used for this. Compared to previous versions, the BEUMER stretch hood A now offers higher throughput, gentle transport of the film in the system and requires 40 percent less floor space. The systems supplier can now provide the system with a newly developed easy opening hood: it allows employees in retail stores and logistics centres to quickly and easily remove the film when unpacking or repacking the goods, without the use of any cutting tools.

Under the banner of Industry 4.0 BEUMER Group has developed the BEUMER Overall Operation Monitoring app, an application with which the customer's employees have all relevant indices of their packaging line displayed on their mobile devices at any time. The application shows the status quo of availability, performance and quality levels as well as the energy and compressed-air consumption. This ensures efficient operation of all systems. The program can be adapted to customer-specific requirements.

BEUMER Group awarded a second contract by Relais Colis for its second automated parcel sortation system
Aarhus, 12. July 2017

BEUMER Group, a leading global supplier of automated parcel and post distribution systems, has been awarded a second contract to design and integrate a new parcel sortation system at Relais Colis’ Sortation Centre in Genas, France. The new contract follows BEUMER’s installation of an almost identical automated parcel sortation system in Relais Colis’ Combs-La-Ville Hub which went into operation in April 2017.

The new cross-docking sortation system is based on an energy-efficient LS-4000 sorter which will provide Relais Colis with the flexibility to handle a wide range of parcel sizes. This ensures a highly efficient parcel delivery which enables an 8pm order cut-off time combined with next-day delivery to consumers throughout France.

BEUMER Group has designed the new system to fit into a more compact footprint than the Combs-La-Ville system due to the shape of the Genas Hub facility.

Jean-Sébastien Léridon, Managing Director of Relais Colis, explains; "BEUMER Group’s close partnership and co-operation resulted in the on-time delivery of the Combs-La-Ville system. This has given us the confidence to award the second contract for the Genas Hub to BEUMER Group. These automated systems are central to Relais Colis' business strategy to combine a higher delivery speed with a lower cost for all of our customers.”

The new sortation system is part of a 40 million Euro transformation in the Relais Colis brand which includes launching new services, in addition to tripling turnover and driving a 25-fold increase in customer numbers within the next four years. “The specific purpose of this site is to be both a hub and a regional agency”, explains Sébastien Coelho, Relais Colis Transformation and Flow Manager. He continues, “The Lyon hub agency project is a result of the experience developed with Beumer when designing the sorter installed in Combs-La-Ville and is part of an innovative approach in order to design this new double-use machine.”

Airports have one year to comply with IATA Resolution 753
Aarhus, 11. July 2017

International Air Transport Association (IATA) Resolution 753 comes into effect in June 2018, giving airports just one year to ensure their baggage handling systems are compliant. The resolution aims to reduce the number of lost or delayed pieces of baggage by keeping track of them at every stage of their journey, by maintaining a strict ‘chain of custody’ as bags are handed over during the various phases of travel. This will lead to a better customer experience and reduce the costs involved in tracing, retrieving and delivering missing or delayed bags.

To comply with IATA Resolution 753, airports must monitor the acquisition and delivery of bags at the three specified events: aircraft loading, arrivals inject and transfers inject. IATA members have committed themselves to prove the chain of custody by: demonstrating delivery of baggage when custody changes, demonstrating acquisition of baggage when custody changes, providing an inventory of baggage upon departure of a flight and exchanging these events with other airlines as needed.

The resolution is already having a positive impact on the passenger experience at many airports. As we approach June 2018, airlines are launching systems that provide real time notification to passengers about their bags. Passenger service apps provide push messages when a passenger's bag has been checked and loaded, as well as providing the bag tag number and the reclaim carousel number when the passenger arrives at their destination.

The new regulations are driving investment in technology that not only enables compliance with the resolution, but also improves passenger experience. Over recent years, many airports have commissioned modern baggage handling systems, as they are able to track the progress of a bag through the airport. In BEUMER Group baggage handling systems, high level controls, scanners and the baggage reconciliation system can tell where the bag has been, which security level it scanned through and when it was discharged for loading. The data is kept in the information system from which the airport or airline can pull the necessary information to convey to the passenger.

Off-loading and passenger acquisition of inbound bags presents a major challenge. Off-loading for passenger reclaim puts great demand on automatic tag reading (ATR) technology, leading airports to adopt new approaches such as Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and Video Coding Systems (VCS) that allow an operator to manually resolve tag reading from a remote location.

Another technology for tracking baggage efficiently is RFID tags, which offer a higher read rate. They are still readable even if crumpled or wet and the price for a tag can be justified by the reduction in baggage having to be routed for manual encoding, if it can’t be read automatically. The challenge is that the airline has to pay the higher cost per tag, but airports are the main beneficiary.

Airports are complex environments, with some having as many as 30 different scanner technologies and conveyors or claim carousels that are not designed for attaching scanner arrays, making it harder to establish that they have the infrastructure to support Resolution 753. Despite this, they must be able to demonstrate compliance by June 2018. Even with the challenges, IATA Resolution 753 should be welcomed by airlines, airports and travelers alike. It is driving investment in technologies that will accelerate the reduction in baggage mishandling rates, which have been falling since 2007. This means a tangible benefit for all parties: fewer passenger complaints, as well as faster reconciliation and flight readiness for departing flights.

Effectively shaping digital transformation
Beckum, 19. May 2017

What will the world of logistics look like in a couple of years? Will drones with stock orders fly through storehouses, will robots deliver ordered goods to the final customer and will truck drivers activate 3D printers in their trailers to manufacture the order during transport?

Logistics is one of the industries where the influence of the digital transformation process is particularly strong. This is because digital logistics offers considerable potential when it comes to costs and speed. The smart integration of digital technologies can especially make intralogistics more efficient and environmentally safe.

BEUMER Group takes an active part in shaping this change initiated by networking and digitalisation. In addition to know-how in terms of digital technologies and processes, a major challenge is to plan and realise digital innovation together with the customer. On the one hand, potential brought by digital innovation is to be anticipated in the existing product portfolio. On the other hand, the focus of digital transformation is set on new business segments opening up for BEUMER Group.

The customer is at the centre of all development of digital business models. Close and iterative co-ordination with and involvement of the customer is therefore a key prerequisite for digital transformation. For BEUMER Group's customers, this creates sustainable value for tomorrow's logistics.

BEUMER Group to show live and virtual-reality demos of advanced baggage handling technologies at Airport Show Dubai 2017
Aarhus, 02. May 2017

BEUMER Group – a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling systems – will feature live and virtual-reality demonstrations of next-generation baggage handling technologies at Airport Show Dubai 2017, UAE, 15-17 May 2017

A live demonstration of a Video Coding System (VCS) will show how new technology from BEUMER Group can optimise baggage handling system performance. The VCS combines cameras installed on a sortation system with controls from BEUMER Group’s Airport Software Suite to eliminate the need to divert bags with no-read tags to a Manual Encoding Station (MES). This technology allows the bag to remain inside the system whilst it sends an image of the tag to an operator for remote encoding at a workstation or via a tablet.

The benefits of the VCS, including increased flexibility during peak coding periods, are outlined in a recent BEUMER Group White Paper.

Delegates can take a virtual-reality tour of the CrisBag® tote-based baggage handling system via an Oculus head-set. In 2017 the show is focusing on security innovation, and BEUMER Group’s CrisBag® totes are first to be approved by the TSA for US-based in-tote baggage screening, demonstrating BEUMER Group’s leadership in this area of baggage handling.

The virtual reality demonstration will showcase the high-speed, high-efficiency baggage handling offered by the CrisBag tote-based system, demonstrating why many airports view this as the future of baggage handling.

Klaus Schäfer, Managing Director, BEUMER Group A/S, “Our innovations enable airports to make significant improvements in their baggage handling processes resulting in improved efficiency in addition to contributing to enhanced passenger satisfaction by reducing in the number of mishandled bags.”

BEUMER Group awarded contract to expand sorting system in UK Mail’s national hub
Aarhus, 25. April 2017

BEUMER Group - a leading global supplier of automated parcel and post distribution systems – has been awarded the contract to extend the fully automated parcel sorting system in UK Mail’s national UK hub near Coventry. The extension is scheduled to be completed by end of 2017. 

In response to increased demand from the e-commerce sector, UK Mail has combined the flexibility to sort a wide spectrum of products with later cut-off times, leading to growth in the number of parcels that the company is handling. This growth has prompted expansion of UK Mail’s parcel network in addition to the extension of the sorting system in its national hub. 

The hub’s existing BEUMER Group automated sortation system was installed in 2014 and enabled UK Mail to quadruple the capacity of its previous system by handling 24,000 parcels an hour. The new extension will allow UK Mail to further increase the hub’s handling capacity to 29,000 parcels an hour. This higher capacity will enable continued development of UK Mail’s parcels business and allow it to benefit from the resources of the Deutsche Post DHL Group which acquired the company in December 2016. 

“The easy integration of additional sections was an essential part of the design for the original system,” explains Stephan Heessels, Director for BEUMER Group's Logistic Systems division. “This ensures that the system will continue to be an essential part of UK Mail's strategy for years to come.” 

When the contract for the original system was awarded in January 2014, Richard Wenham, UK Mail’s network development director, explained; "We chose BEUMER Group's system for its ability to deliver a parcel sortation system based on the industry’s most energy-efficient sorters in addition to providing the flexibility to handle a wide variety of parcel sizes in a single system. The automated system not only enabled an immediate increase in handling capacity and process efficiency, but also secured our ability to support future growth.”

Solution-oriented all down the line
Beckum, 24. March 2017

BEUMER Group at the interpack 2017:

At the interpack in Düsseldorf from May 4 - 10, BEUMER Group will exhibit its high level of expertise as a solution provider for integrated packaging and intralogistics systems. In addition to highly efficient palletising and packaging systems, BEUMER Group also provides tailor-made components for material flows specific to different industries. Customers can get everything from one hand, including the software and comprehensive customer support.

As a single-source provider, BEUMER Group supplies and installs the packaging lines and adjusts them individually to the products of the customer. The new BEUMER fillpac R filling machine fills bulk material from the building materials industry and other industrial pulverized goods into bags in an efficient and gentle way and with the required throughput. It can fill very fine to very coarse materials into different bag formats and types, such as valve bottom bags and flat valve bags. BEUMER Group has now complemented the rotary filling machine with a bag placer and a ream magazine. This means that performance and efficiency can be further increased. Due to its modular design, the BEUMER fillpac R can be easily integrated and adjusted with existing packaging lines. The highly efficient form fill seal system BEUMER fillpac FFS is used in the chemical and petrochemical industries. It forms bags from a prefabricated tubular PE film and fills them with the product of the customer. Both systems are equipped with a specialised weighing unit which ensures the correct quantity of the filled material.

The bags are then stacked on pallets. For this, BEUMER Group offers the BEUMER paletpac high-capacity palletiser. It is incorporated into high-performance packaging lines to process even sensitive and valuable products as well as products with special flow characteristics in a gentle and efficient manner. Depending on the product requirements, it can be equipped with a clamp-type turning device or a twin-belt turning device. BEUMER offers the BEUMER robotpac, a space-saving articulated robot, for palletising cartons, boxes, canisters or trays. This fully automatic articulated robot is able to solve even complex palletising and de-palletising challenges reliably and efficiently. BEUMER has developed fully automatic gripping systems that are easily exchangeable and suitable for each item to be packed. 

During transport, the palletised products must be secured on the pallet and protected against dust, rain or other atmospheric influences. The BEUMER stretch hood high capacity stretch hood system can be used for this. The BEUMER stretch hood A is the result of the intralogistics specialist completely redesigning its tried-and-trusted packaging system. Compared to previous versions this machine series now offers higher throughput, gentle transport of the film in the system and requires 40 percent less floor space. In addition, the systems supplier can now provide the system with a newly developed easy opening hood: this worldwide innovation allows employees in retail stores and logistics centres to quickly and easily remove the film when unpacking or repacking the goods, without the use of any cutting tools. 

Through its palletising and packaging systems division, BEUMER Group is also implementing applications that are specific to the industry and that allow the customer to expand the packaging lines into entire intralogistics systems. The lines are equipped with standardised components such as conveying elements or vehicle-based systems, various solutions for handling and manipulators such as robots, buffer and storage modules along with the suitable software. The customer gets the entire intralogistics system from one source with BEUMER as a reliable and competent partner to contact.

BEUMER Group’s CrisBag® Totes Are First to be Approved by the TSA for US-based In-Tote Baggage Screening
Aarhus, 14. March 2017

BEUMER Group – a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling systems – is the first vendor to be certified as meeting TSA requirements for in-tote screening of baggage. CrisBag totes enable in-tote screening that, when used with Morpho Detection’s CTX 9800 DSi™ explosives detection system, meets the detection and false alarm rates for explosives specified by the TSA. 

The certification applies to U.S. airports and for U.S. pre-border clearance, making migration to a common-use model based on modern, RFID-enabled tote-based baggage handling system solutions more attractive. The certification benefits airports outside of the U.S. that implement, or plan to implement, U.S. pre-border clearance, as well as airports based in the U.S.

The TSA previously tested the effectiveness of the CrisBag system across a range of real-life conditions and situations at its full-scale Transportation Systems Integration Facility near Washington, D.C. Elements assessed included tracking, throughput, imaging, sorting and the detection of missing, unknown and oversized bags. This in depth evaluation also recorded how rapidly the CrisBag system associated specific bags with the individual totes. 

"Because each checked bag remains inside the same individually controlled tote from check-in and early baggage storage to screening and discharge, the CrisBag system provides 100% tracking and traceability at every stage,” said Klaus Schäfer, Managing Director, BEUMER Group A/S. “This is one of the main reasons why CrisBag has a 15-year history of successful operation in airports.

By collaborating with Morpho Detection and leveraging the imaging and operational capabilities of CTX 9800, BEUMER Group looks forward to bringing the benefits of in-tote screening and the CrisBag system to airports throughout the U.S.” 

Although tote-based systems have been accepted by airports throughout Canada, Europe, Middle East and Asia, it is a relatively new concept for North American airports. Recently, Calgary International Airport selected a second CrisBag system after having successfully implemented the system in their new international terminal, and last year, BEUMER Group was awarded a design and build contract at San Francisco Airport for the first U.S. tote-based, individual carrier system for baggage handling.

BEUMER autover® adapts to changes in baggage sortation demand
Aarhus, 14. March 2017

BEUMER Group – a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling systems – has extended the capabilities of the BEUMER autover® independent carrier system (ICS) with the launch of new BEUMER autoca® carriers that support a wider range of baggage sizes.

These new autoca carriers mean the BEUMER autover system can now transport a wide variety of baggage, from standard to out-of-gauge (OOG). The new autoca also support CrisBag® totes from BEUMER Group's Crisplant® product range, enabling baggage to be easily transferred between autover and CrisBag systems at the same airport.

A dedicated autoca collects a single item of baggage from a loading station, typically after check-in, and transports it independently to its destination. The new autoca carriers enable handling of OOG baggage on the same track, and at the same speed, as normal size bags. Not only do all autoca run in the same rail, the number of active autoca can also be adjusted on the fly to meet changing levels of sortation demand in the baggage handling system.

Both the autover and the CrisBag system are known for their "One bag per carrier/tote" design that increases traceability and security as well as ensuring 100% accurate track-and-trace of baggage at every stage of the handling process. In recent years, airports and airlines increasingly wanted to track baggage and provide this as a service to passengers, as well as meeting the requirements of IATA Resolution 753, which comes into effect in June 2018. No track and trace technology provides higher accuracy than that provided by autover and CrisBag ICS technology, making them ideal solutions to support both passenger and regulatory demands.

The inherent flexibility of the autover system is one of the reasons why airports such as Dubai, Montreal, Nice and most recently Sheremetyevo Airport, Russia have chosen the system for flexible and reliable baggage handling. 

In Sheremetyevo the autover will help keep baggage connection time between terminals to a minimum, while allowing each item of baggage to be properly transported through a maintenance free tunnel connection and allocated to the correct make-up position.

BEUMER Group’s live and virtual-reality demos of advanced baggage handling technologies at ACI Asia-Pacific General Assembly 2017, Doha
Aarhus, 07. March 2017

BEUMER Group – a leading global supplier of automated baggage handling systems – will feature live and virtual-reality demonstrations of next-generation baggage handling technologies at the ACI Asia-Pacific General Assembly, Doha, April 10-12th 2017. 

The virtual-reality tour will allow delegates to experience the CrisBag® tote-based baggage handling system through a virtual-reality head-set. This will allow delegates to see why many airports consider this to be the future of high-speed, high-efficiency baggage handling. 

BEUMER Group will also enable delegates to interact with a live demonstration of a Video Coding System (VCS). This system combines cameras installed in the sortation system, with controls from BEUMER Group’s Airport Software Suite, to eliminate the need to divert bags with no-read tags to a Manual Encoding Station (MES). The VCS technology allows the bag to remain on the sorter whilst sending an image of the tag to an operator for remote encoding at a workstation or via a tablet. The additional benefits of the VCS, including increased flexibility during peak coding periods, have been outlined in a recent BEUMER Group White Paper. 

Klaus Schäfer, Managing Director, BEUMER Group A/S, “The VCS is an important tool to help hub airports to improve their baggage transfer service by reducing the number of mis-handled bags. This is one of the areas that can have a significant impact on transfer passenger satisfaction and airport ratings in general.” 

The BEUMER Group demonstrations will take place on Stand 5 at the ACI Asia-Pacific General Assembly, Doha, April 10-12th 2017.

BEUMER Group supplies complex sortation and distribution technology to Hermes Germany GmbH

Hermes is one of the most successful logistics companies both in Germany and throughout Europe. In order to keep high quality and delivery commitments in times where online retailing is constantly growing, this service provider is giving its entire parcel and distribution network a facelift. As a result, Hermes will establish nine new logistics centres over the next two years. BEUMER Group has been asked to provide six of these logistics centres with top-performing sortation and distribution technology. 

Highly efficient sorters made by BEUMER will be used at all six locations. The non-contact energy supply of these systems is based on the induction principle. The systems are available with motor-driven tilt elements or cross belt elements. Thanks to the modular structure, they can be optimally adapted to the existing building situation which will further optimise the sorter capacity. In the four largest locations, BEUMER Group will use high-speed sortation systems of type BS 55 – WB/DB with two cross belt elements on a carriage, the smaller logistics centres will be provided with BS 25 ET tilt tray sorters. BEUMER Group will supply turnkey systems. "We are pleased to provide the logistics centres of Hermes with state-of-the-art conveying and sortation technology in the next years," says Thomas Wiesmann, Director Sales Logistic Systems of BEUMER Group. 

The first project in this series is the new logistics centre in Bad Rappenau near Heilbronn, Germany, which will start operation mid of may. Further logistic centres will go live into the hermes net in the following months. The total project programme is scheduled to be completed in 2019. "This way we emphasize the longstanding partnership with BEUMER Group, which we'll continue with this project in the coming years," says André Mushack, Head of Technical System at Hermes Germany.
