Lan achieves triple ISO certification

Lan Handling Technologies is proud to announce  that we are now ISO 9001:2015 (Quality), ISO 45001:2018 (Health & Safety) and ISO 14001:2015 (Environmental Management) certified. These three certifications apply to both Tilburg and Halfweg locations and were issued to Lan by independent audit firm DNV-GL. It demonstrates our commitment to continuous improvement in the areas of quality, safety and the environment.

Unique achievement
Alexander Branderhorst, SHEQ Manager at Lan Handling Technologies said: “This is a special milestone for our company. Complying with one of the international standards is good, but having all three is quite unique in our industry. Especially when you consider that we are a relatively small organisation in an international field. We owe the success to the commitment of our employees, who see this certification as a core service.”

- ISO 9001:2015 – ensures focus on risk-based thinking and meeting customers expectations.
- ISO 45001:2018 – shows that Lan put in place the best possible working conditions and workplace health and safety.
- ISO 14001:2015 – demonstrates we are a future focused organisation, committed to improve the environment.

Our customers are increasingly looking for high-quality and environmentally friendly processes, products and services. These certifications provide objective evidence for this. Lan Handling Technologies wants to deal with excellent compliance in Law and Regulation and protection of the environment in a responsible and proactive manner.

Lan will deploy handling expertise in Eastern Europe

Lan Handling Technologies is starting a new project in Eastern Europe. We are going to use our experience in sterilised product handling to support business growth at Kormotech (premium pet food nutrition). Our solution for this project: a fast and flexible pouch handling system.

Automation in new pet food factoryKormotech, one of the largest animal food producers from Eastern Europe,  is going to build a new factory for the super premium Optimeal and premium Club4Paws pet food brands in Lithuania. Lan’s contribution concerns the delivery of a pouch handling line with 3 loaders, 2 unloaders with integrated In-Line Dryers to handle pouches with wet cat and dog food. Steriflow supplies the sterilisation retorts. Delivery is planned for April 2020.

Lan works in multidisciplinary teams: mechanical, electrical and software designers work together with our technicians to achieve the best results. The new, state-of-the-art building in Tilburg where a large glass wall separates the office from the production hall, makes an enormous contribution to this.

Why Lan?
  •  We can handle innovative packaging – such as uncommon shapes.
  •  We have solutions to handle multipack with different flavors.
  •  We are market leader in pouch handling.
  • Benefit from our extensive experience with more than 500+ projects worldwide.
  •  We integrate the latest techniques and trends (digitization, low energy and air consumption).

Lan is getting started with Digital Twin Technology

Lan is an expert in engineering and integrating handling systems for the food industry.  “But our approach goes beyond the level of supplying machine equipment only”, says Rogier Nabbe, Project Manager at Lan Handling Technologies. “The evolution of Smart Industry and the ever-evolving Internet of Things (IoT) gives us the opportunity to create added value for our customers in the food handling industry. Digital Twin Technology, known from the gaming world, enables us to offer our customers a real-time simulation of a physical Lan production line in which the status of our machines is visualized using OEE and TPM data.”

4 big benefits of implementing Digital Twin:

  • During the sales process, we can show our customers an advanced simulation of their new production line, even before it is built. Based on this clear visualisation, our customers can indicate which changesmay still be needed to implement all wishes.
  • The lead time of our projects is considerably shorter. We can test software and hardware virtually, no physical production line is required. The commissioning duration on site is limited to a minimum.
  • With a realistic Digital Twin we can start training at an early stage. Also consider Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) applications to train the local technical staff, so that production can start quickly after delivery.
  • Once the system is 'running', we access data via the Digital Twin. Our customers see the production volume and efficiency of their production lines (OEE) and the best consistent efficiency possible (TPM). The aim is to adjust parameters that fall outside their specifications in time and to make maintenance predictable.
Launch @ Interpack 2020! Together with Unit040 from Eindhoven, Lan Handling Technologies is working on the PREspective platform to develop the first simulations of the production lines for both sterilised product handling and end of line automation. During Interpack 2020 in Düsseldorf, from 7 to 13 May, our customers and visitors can experience the benefits of simulations in the Digital Twin in an accessible and interactive way. Common scenarios in a production process can be simulated, whereby the effect of actions is immediately visible.
