NEW CENTURY, Kan., May 13, 2020 – DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences (DuPont) today announced the North American launch of Bonlacta™, its latest enzyme for the lactose-free dairy market. This unique product allows for process optimization and cost reduction, enabling  production of a wide range of lactose-free dairy products at competitive costs across North America.

Among the numerous benefits Bonlacta™ offers, it is fast acting under refrigeration conditions and is able to withstand high temperatures to enable new, optimized processes with even faster lactose hydrolysis targets.  The unique thermal properties makes it optimal for flash pasteurization or high-temperature short-time (HTST) processing. This process is widely used for perishable beverages found in supermarket aisles, such as fruit and vegetable juices, beer, kosher wine and – where Bonlacta™ comes in – fluid milk and milk-derived products.

The opportunity for lactose-free producers has never been greater; today it is the fastest growth segment in the dairy industry. In markets around the world, lactose-free products are no longer niche, which is  among the top  claims in new milk product launches.

“The demand for lactose-free milk is growing rapidly across North America and we see Bonlacta™ as critical to meeting that need,” said Clementina Dellomonaco, global product line manager, dairy enzymes at DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences. “We know the exceptional performance of Bonlacta™ can create cost-competitive products, allowing more dairy producers to go mainstream with lactose-free milk.”

Bonlacta™ offers manufacturers many more unique advantages. Superior filterability during in-line milk processing reduces down time and delivers considerable cost savings during production.Its high purity ensures a clean taste in products stored at refrigerated or ambient temperatures. Less undesired off-flavors and less undesired reactions bring opportunities for use in new products such as hybrid milks with many added ingredients. The fast lactose hydrolysis process is further accelerated by salt addition, making Bonlacta™ ideal for use in fresh cheese and related dairy applications.  Additionally, its high enzyme stability, relative dose reduction, and lactase addition flexibility during processing are  significant advantages for milk and dairy product producers.


“This is great news for dairy producers and lactose intolerant consumers,” Dellomonaco added. “Between the lower costs and  consistent flavors, Bonlacta™ is helping to eliminate numerous barriers to entry for lactose-free dairy products.”

Bonlacta™ is part of the DuPont™ Danisco® full suite of lactase enzymes with a wide variety of producer and consumer benefits.

The right ingredients for growth 


May 6, 2020

The new GWR-3000 guided wave radar is suited for all types of liquids including those with steam, vapor, foam, condensation, or those prone to residual buildup. It is ideal for continuous level measurement in storage vessels, standpipes, or separators, tank metering at tank farms, and interface measurement to detect separation layers. It is appropriate for use in water, wastewater, oils, fuels, and many chemicals.

The GWR-3000 is completely customized for each vessel. It is offered with plastic, aluminum, or stainless-steel housings and with either a cable or rod customized to a specific length. Both 2-wire 4-20 mA or 4-wire 4-20 mA and Modbus output options make it easily compatible with existing systems. To meet hazardous location requirements, it is available with a variety of CSA and FM approvals, or can be used in ordinary locations. Flat and angled mounting plates, a variety of flange sizes, and 1.5” and 2” NPT mounting options make the sensor adaptable to most any vessel.

The GWR-3000 is easily programmed using a BinDisc module. On-site and remote monitoring can be done using BinView software on a phone, tablet, or PC. It can also be connected to your existing PLC and control room. For convenient access throughout the plant, digital panel meters provide local data access via a push-button display that is highly visible is in bright light, fog, or dust.

These sensors can be applied in liquid storage tanks containing ammonia, bitumen or liquefied gas, ethanol, anhydrous ammonia, and many other types of fuels, oils, or chemicals. The GWR-3000 is also for use in water separators in steel mills, chemical or food plants, waste transfer facilities, industrial wastewater treatment systems, metal recyclers, and flavoring and fragrance manufacturers.


GLEN ARM, MD, May 5, 2020— SUN Automation Group®, a leading global provider of innovative equipment to the corrugated industry, celebrates 35 years of continuous operation this week.  The company, founded in 1985, plans to virtually celebrate its 35 years with its employee-owners around the globe and continuing to provide the highest level of support and service to its customers stretching across six continents.

What began in a small townhouse in northern Baltimore County, Maryland, has grown into one of the most well-respected equipment and product development companies serving the global corrugated industry. SUN was founded in 1985 by corrugated industry veterans Lou Sardella and Pat O’Connor with a mission to provide innovative corrugated-industry product solutions.

Among SUN’s most notable achievements are the 1987 introduction of the Lead Edge Feeder to the corrugated industry.  This innovation helped revolutionize corrugated sheet feeding by providing increased accuracy, efficiency and precision.  By working directly with corrugated converters and global equipment partners (OEM customers) for more than three decades, SUN has been able to adapt this technology to over 11,000 machines around the globe.  

Building on the success of the Lead Edge Feeder, SUN developed unique printing innovations in the years that followed, including its introduction of Rainbow Graphics and its Spectrum Color Unit to the corrugated market.  In 2000, SUN introduced the MicroGrind Die Cut Accuracy Trimmer and acquired the Langston Corporation in 2001 which more than doubled the company’s size. 

Following other notable innovations, like its ColorMaster Blade System and several other retrofit solutions like the SunTrac Vacuum Transfer and SunSet Control Systems, 

SUN transitioned to an ESOP in 2003 and officially became an OEM in 2012 with the introduction of the SUN625 Rotary Die Cutter.  In 2016, SUN expanded to a 180,000 square foot facility in Glen Arm, Maryland and installed the world’s first Aqueous Ink Single Pass Digital Printer for Corrugated which is still in full production today.   In 2019, SUN partnered with Latitude Machinery Corporation to become its exclusive representative and service provider throughout North and Central America.  

SUN has built locations and partnerships around the globe, with SUN facilities in Guangzhou, China; Bristol, UK; and its headquarters in Glen Arm, Maryland.

"As we step into our 35th year amidst a global pandemic, SUN reflects on the resilience of its employees, the company and the corrugated industry,” says Chris Kyger, President, SUN Automation Group. “It’s remarkable to consider that since 1985, SUN Automation has supported corrugated converters through three wars, two recessions, many natural disasters and now the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis.  We intend to continue to support the industry for years to come.” 

In 2016, SUN adopted its new “Where You’ll Find Everything Corrugated Under SUN” tagline. With a strong foundation, committed employee-owners and a robust understanding of the corrugated industry of the past, present and future, it is clear that the future of SUN is bright.
