Your partner for packaging and filling equipment
Filling and packaging cosmetics represents a real challenge: High product and packaging diversity, frequent product launches, re-launches and new developments in addition to the highly volatile and personalised demand resulting from e-commerce are all leading to decreasing production speeds and high cost pressures.
Other factors include the growing demand for refill packs, the use of recycled materials and the replacement of plastics with renewable materials such as cardboard, paper or bamboo.
With Schubert-Cosmetics, our customers have a team of experts at their side that is entirely specialised in the packaging and filling of cosmetics. We develop, design and deliver solutions that are precisely tailored to your unique requirements, to give you real added value and a competitive edge.
With our modular top-loading machines, the integration of a single machine into existing production lines is just as straightforward as planning new complete filling and packaging lines for cosmetic products. Schubert focuses on automation with a high degree of robotic support and seamless overall solutions. After all, a seamlessly designed packaging line from component feed to the finished pallet simplifies the filling and packaging process, reduces format changeover times and as a result increases output.
3D printing of format parts brings even more flexibility to cosmetics packaging and filling: With the help of a qualified printing process via the PARTBOX system from Schubert Additive Solutions, cosmetics manufacturers can print their format parts for the robotic tools in-house. New products and formats are available in a fraction of the time previously required, and the costs for regular new format sets are reduced. Schubert-Cosmetics is effectively meeting the challenges of the industry and responding to the demand for a quick ROI (return on investment).
Automation and robotics
Turbocharge your processes: Automated filling and packaging of cosmetics
From feeding to cartoning and palletising: With Schubert-Cosmetics you are ready for the future today.
Thanks to their uncompromising modularity, our TLM systems can easily integrate several packaging processes. The filling technology used sets new standards in terms of accuracy, viscosity range and ease of cleaning - for the efficient use of your high-quality cosmetics with minimal waste. Tasks such as assembling bottles and jars from individual components become as easy as fully automated child's play as erecting, loading and closing boxes and subsequent palletising.
With our Cobot tog.519, you can break through the automation boundaries in component feeding – until now, often a labour-intensive weakness in the process. Thanks to AI technology and state-of-the-art image processing, the Cobot easily masters the move away from bulk goods and towards pre-sorted individual parts in trays. Mobile and easy to programme, the Cobot is a flexible assistant for packaging and filling cosmetic products of all shapes and sizes.
Filling with the pros
Precise, clean and reliable: Filling systems from Schubert
Filling cosmetics is easy with Schubert filling systems. Our filling systems are especially suitable for personal care products such as shampoo, creams, liquid makeup and much more. With a performance range of 40 – 120 bottles and high adaptability to individual formats, you can always count on cost-effectiveness, even with smaller batch sizes and quick format changes.
The filling system uses volumetric dosing by means of eccentric screw pumps, the main advantage of which is the wide viscosity range combined with gentle product handling.
Pulsation-free and constant dosing with controlled thread breakage at the end of the dosing process and automatic inline weight control ensure clean and precise filling
Filling and packaging processes combined
Schubert-Cosmetics integrates all processes, from component feeding to filling and right through to final packaging, seamlessly within a single system. This makes conveyor sections between individual machines, repeated synchronisation and product carriers obsolete – along with the noise associated with them. This is made possible by the modular design of Schubert’s TLM machines and the use of the Transmodul. The advantages:
- High overall efficiency
- Space savings of up to 50%
- Filling accuracy above 99.8% (depending on the material to be filled)
- Wide variety of bottles and tube shapes, as well as closure types
- Most of the size parts as 3D printed parts
- Format changes accomplished twice as fast compared to conventional systems
- Simple, rapid cleaning without residue (CIP/SIP)
- Gentle product handling, minimal shear forces
- Low noise and wear, since no traditional puck-system is required
- Format-free bottle feed
- One control unit and operator console for all part functions

Everything from a single source
Short and sweet: Integrated cosmetics filling from Schubert Cosmetics
To economically fill and package even small quantities in flexible formats, the cosmetics industry relies heavily on automation – one of Schubert’s core areas of expertise.
Here, process integration has been our credo – and one that has made us successful for decades. Our systems handle everything that is required for packaging and filling cosmetics – from packaging infeed to palletising, Schubert keeps you compact, well-organised and transparent.
Small order quantities, limited editions, individualised formulations – the demand for cosmetic products is huge, but also highly complex and diversified. This is exactly where Schubert’s packaging and filling solutions come in: Compact systems integrate all processes in a single line, seamlessly connected with our Transmodul transport robot. From loading to filling to palletising, Schubert-Cosmetics packaging lines quickly and flexibly process a wide range of shapes, sizes and grades of viscosity.
Our state-of-the-art, AI-supported image processing systems ensure consistent quality and maximum process reliability at an attractive price. The 3D camera systems keep track of even the most complex processes – right through to the filling of personalised 2-phase products and labelling.
