Your partner for the secondary packaging of dairy product
The dairy market is volatile – like stock market prices, milk prices rise and fall within a very short time and price increases are keenly noticed by consumers at POS. As a result, dairies not only have to offer their customers ever new product variants, but also present them in attractive packaging.
For secondary packaging, it is also important to have different sizes or mixed packs to attract consumers’ attention, for example yoghurt in different flavours. Secondary packaging also needs to be stackable and should not take up too much space on the refrigerated shelf or other product displays. And more and more, the issue of sustainability is also playing a key role in packaging.
To meet these demanding requirements, technologically advanced packaging machines for dairy products are needed to enable quick and easy format changes and a wide variety of packaging.
Whether you need boxes for your creamed dairy cups, want to present packets of butter in cardboard trays or provide custard cups in cardboard sleeves – Schubert has been developing and manufacturing high-performance, efficient and highly flexible packaging machines for the secondary packaging of dairy products for over five decades, making us your ideal partner in the dairy industry.
High format and product diversity thanks to intelligent technology
Our well thought-out packaging machines for dairy products help you respond flexibly to the latest market requirements. Standard assortments with high production quantities can be packed just as well as changing formats with small batches. The combination of simple mechanics, innovative robotics and digital image processing enables our customers to achieve a high degree of automation with very efficient, cost-effective and sustainable packaging processes.
We can also integrate all process steps into a single line with the help of our Transmodul transport robot. This makes Schubert’s top-loading machines exceptionally compact. As a manufacturer, you need less production space and save costs – a clear competitive advantage in a market where dairy manufacturers have to operate with low margins.
Integrated packaging processes
The connecting element – the Transmodul
Seamless and controlled throughout – this is how you could describe the logic behind the processes in our packaging machines. For example, we use the Schubert flowpacker to efficiently pack your dairy products such as pudding cups into flowpacks, or wrap your dairy products with recyclable sleeves with the help of our cartoner.
Even the packaging of your dairy products into secondary packaging and then into tertiary packaging for transport is handled by a single compact production line. This is because the different steps in the packaging process are skilfully linked together via our Transmodul transport robot.
No matter what your requirements may be – we will combine our modules to create the dairy packaging machine that is exactly right for you. In addition to our own system components, we also integrate technologies available on the market for packaging and labelling your products.
Quality control thanks to our vision system
How do Schubert robots succeed in placing products such as cream pots into trays with pre-punched round holes with millimetre precision? And how is it possible, for example, to quickly sort out custard cups with defective or missing lids? The secret behind the efficient and cost-effective robot control is the vision system developed by Schubert in-house. The state-of-the-art 2D or 3D image processing assists with various production steps, for example product inspection, the pick & place process or the alignment of dairy products in the display carton.
The Schubert vision system also checks the finished secondary packaging for completeness. The optical support through our robots ensures that you have fewer rejects and a fully automated packaging process without any disruptions. A big benefit for your margins and your profitability!
