Hitting Essential Filling Speeds for Essential Oils

With expansions in pharmaceutical, medical, and food and beverage applications, the essential oil market is booming. Young Living turned to Syntegon (formerly Bosch Packaging) to triple its filler speed and improve yield. Nutraceutical companies might be getting called out by pharmaceutical companies these days to follow the same sorts of guidelines that they’re held to, but the key reasons a leading essential oil maker went with a pharma-grade filler had a lot more to do with speed and reliability. “I’d recommend Bosch if they were filling 5 and 15 mL bottles of anything,” says Trent Davies, facilities and maintenance manager for Young Living. What the FLC 3080 TR-EO filling machine from Bosch Packaging Technology (now independent enterprise Syntegon Technology since Bosch completed the sale of its packaging division) provides for Young Living is stainless steel construction that’s easy to clean, won’t corrode from the essential oils or cleaning agents, and is easy to access. It also offers a throughput that’s three times as fast as what Young Living was getting from its previous fillers. Young Living’s four monoblock filling/capping machines can each output 90-100 bottles per...

Are you ready for the full moon? Here’s how to take the best photos

Dennis Doucet sat outside in near-freezing temperatures to get these photos of the moon over Kobe, Japan. Dennis Doucet sat outside in near-freezing temperatures to get these photos of the moon over Kobe, Japan. Before you head outside with your camera to capture that Instagram worthy image, here are some tips and tricks from an avid space photographer. Dennis Doucet, 61, has been taking stunning images of the moon shining over Kobe, Japan, for several years and many of his photos have even been featured on CNN. The moon, to him, symbolizes one of “humankind’s shared constants.” “When I’m abroad, and missing friends or family, I look at the moon and hope that they will look at the moon as well, and we will have a shared experience,” Doucet, who is originally from Canada, told CNN. OK, let’s get down to business. First, you need the right equipment. Doucet suggests a good camera, variety of lenses and, of course, a tripod. “I decided to use what is known as “micro four-thirds” cameras, as they are smaller, lighter and cheaper than the standard interchangeable cameras,” he said. The reason he enjoys the smaller, lighter camera is because it’s easier to haul around, especially wit...

Bekum marks 60 years with new concept machine logo-pn-color logo-pn-color

Düsseldorf, Germany — At K 2016, Michael Mehnert had just joined the upper management ranks of Bekum Maschinenfabriken GmbH, an extrusion blow molding technology business started by his father, Gottfried Mehnert, in 1959. He was 34 at the time and faced a lot of questions about what his leadership would mean for the Berlin-based company, focused on packaging for the food and beverage, consumer goods and pharmaceutical markets. “There was talk about the shift of generations,” Michael Mehnert said. “I said change would come in incremental steps. It may be in design. It may be in software. Of course, we did that and more.” Three years later, Bekum launched and sold a sleek, new machine dubbed the Concept 808 just before the company’s 60th anniversary booth celebration. Nobody is comparing the cladding of this eighth-generation blow molder to a school bus like its predecessors. The Concept 808 makes selective use of the company’s eye-catching yellow color at the top and base but has wide polycarbonate windows to show off the inner workings. The modern exterior houses numerous technical improvements to produce containers from 250 milliliters to 3 ...

Applying ultraviolet lighting in machine vision applications

For developers inspecting plastics, paints, and labels, ultraviolet (UV) illumination reveals defects that cannot be revealed with visible light. Many machine vision systems use visible 390-700 nm LED lighting components with which to illuminate products. While designers of such systems have applied these most effectively, there is an increasing demand to inspect products such as plastics, paints, printing inks and dyes that can benefit from illumination in the ultraviolet (UV) spectrum. In the past, such tasks were limited by the cost of UV light sources. Now, however, with the advent of lower-cost UV LED illumination, these applications are becoming more affordable. UV is electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength from 10-400nm, that is classed into three different bands. Between 300-400nm, the band of the spectrum is known as the near-UV band and is divided into the UV-A (315-400nm) and UV-B (280-315) sub-bands. Below 300 nm, the UV-C band covers wavelengths from 100-280nm. In machine vision applications, wavelengths in the UV-A band, most notably at 365nm and 395nm wavelengths, are most commonly used. UV light can be used in machine vision applications to detect features th...

How To Turn An Old Diesel Mercedes Into The Ultimate Off-Roading Wagon

If you want to travel far off the beaten path, you usually start with a big truck. Not so for Neil Markwardt, who’s slowly been making a 1985 Mercedes 300TD into the ultimate off-roading wagon. Here’s how he did it. “I just love wagons, diesels, and getting weird looks,” he told Jalopnik. For a car that’s meant to take the kids to school, it’s been easier than it looks to lift it up and take it overlanding. Markwardt bought “Manfred the Mercedes” about two years ago, and in that two years, it’s lived a surprisingly robust and dirty life. It’s been to Death Valley, Joshua Tree National Park (twice), the Tecopa Mines district just south of Death Valley, and up to Oregon and Northern California for last August’s big solar eclipse. He’s already planning some kind of Sierras expedition for the summer, too. But to him, it was the perfect car. “I’ve always liked the general aura of indestructability around the W123, along with the weird five-cylinder engine and its distinctive clatter,” Markwardt told Jalopnik via email of his car. “They’re very mechanical, simple to work on, and just generally well engineered. It’s an ‘85 model, that was built one month after I was born.” The car cam...

Bliss Mobil and Acela put fiercely meticulous engineering into extreme-duty expedition motorhome

Among the many big trucks of Overland Expo, one particular green machine stood out. A collaboration between American truck manufacturer Acela and Dutch camper module maker Bliss Mobil, this particular expedition motorhome features exacting state-of-the-art engineering from bumper to bumper, roof to contact patches. Each company goes through great pains to push its product to the pinnacle of its respective segment, and the team-up results in a go-anywhere expedition vehicle ready to brave Arctic winters, make fresh water out of murky river, live astonishingly comfortably off-grid, and look pretty damn good doing it all. Some partnerships feel almost inevitable. When we took a tour of Bliss Mobil’s Abenteur & Allrad booth last June, the company told us that a big obstacle in its expansion into the American market was sourcing the right truck chassis to drop its motorhome boxes on. In Europe, it has a wide selection of large, capable all-wheel-drive trucks from MAN, Mercedes, Steyr, Iveco and others. Not so in the United States. Had we spoken in any depth with Acela at last year’s Overland Expo, just days before we met with Bliss Mobil in Germany, we probably would ...

With the stated intent of combating illegal immigration, Senators Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham

With the stated intent of combating illegal immigration, Senators Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.) are crafting new legislation to institute a national identification card. The card would be required in order to be eligible for employment, and would in turn enable employers to identify and reject illegal immigrants who are seeking work. The card would be biometric, i.e., containing identifying characteristics unique to the physiology of the cardholder. In this case the biometrics would most likely be comprised of either a fingerprint or a scan of the veins on the back of the hand. This is not the first time a biometric card has been proposed: in the wake of 9-11, there was a strong push for a national ID card on the basis of national security. Schumer and Graham claim that the institution of a national ID would not be accompanied by the creation of a complementary database; however, no national identification system has ever operated independently of a database. It would be impossible to run a national ID system without a corresponding database available for purposes of verification. Thus, although the card would initially include only biometric and citizen...
