Efficient automation: Packaging pharmaceutical products flexibly, safely and relialy

Globally recognised innovation and market leader Gerhard Schubert GmbH will be presenting its flexible, robot-based top-loading packaging (TLM) technology at the CIPM International Pharmaceutical Machinery trade fair in Qingdao between May 10 and 12, 2021. The modular machines package pharmaceutical products of all kinds in a wide variety of dosage forms and with outstanding efficiency. The highly experienced experts at the Schubert-Pharma unit ensure safe and reliable packaging processes in compliance with international standards. Schubert has been present with a sales and service location in the greater Shanghai area since 2018 for its customers in China.

The modular TLM packaging machines from Schubert package pharmaceutical products of all kinds in a wide variety of dosage forms with outstanding efficiency.

With its efficient TLM technology for the automation of packaging processes, Schubert relies on an interplay of simple mechanics, intelligent control technology and high modularity. The manufacturer’s extensive portfolio includes systems ranging from case packers, pick and place machines and flow-wrapping machines, to customised and extremely sophisticated packaging lines. The experienced developers at Schubert-Pharma design the packaging systems individually in accordance with specific customer requirements: Thanks to the company’s modular system and highly developed robot technology, additional processes such as labelling, insertion of instructions for use or prescribed quality controls can also be integrated into the packaging machines. Thanks to the combination of all system components, Schubert systems achieve a high level of efficiency and process reliability to meet the pharmaceutical industry’s stringent international standards.

Customised, precisely fitting and exchangeable robot tools guarantee exceptionally gentle product handling and a high degree of packaging format flexibility.

An automation solution for a wide range of pharmaceutical products

Schubert packages a wide range of pharmaceutical products and medical devices used in healthcare facilities and for self-medication. The dosage forms range from small BFS (Blow Fill Seal) packages containing only a few millilitres to canisters, from pressure-sensitive tubes, flowpacks and blister packs to fragile vials, ampoules and syringes made of glass. Position-sensitive products can be packed as well as combination kits that need to be assembled from several parts. For all products, Schubert develops precisely fitting and exchangeable robot tools which guarantee exceptionally gentle product handling and a high degree of packaging format flexibility. With the GRIPS.world digital customer platform, the packaging machines also provide all important functions and data for monitoring, performance optimisation and documentation at a glance.

Schubert at Automation UK 2024

Last year, Automation UK took place for the first time in Coventry, England. As a result of its resounding success, the trade fair for automation and robotics is now entering its second round – and will be taking place this year on 18 and 19 June. Schubert UK Ltd will, of course, be participating once again. Schubert’s UK sales location was not only an exhibitor last year, but it is also a co-founder of Automation UK. In the CBS Arena at Stand F10, the British team, led by Mark Stepney, will be providing information on the Germany-based company’s latest highly flexible, efficient, and resource-saving solutions for packaging products of all kinds and from all sectors. This year, visitors to the Schubert stand will have an opportunity to view a tog.519 cobot live and in action. At Automation UK, the mobile robot will be demonstrating how it can pick & place unsorted products at speeds of up to 90 cycles per minute using the AI-supported vision system.

The new packaging machine can be used to pack different numbers of vials into cardboard boxes. Here we see the format with five vials laid out in the box compartment.

Schubert-Pharma at the ACHEMA 2024

This year, ACHEMA will be held in Frankfurt from 10 to 14 June 2024. Schubert-Pharma will have its own stand at the 34th leading international trade fair for the process industry in Hall 3.1, Stand A95. For the first time, the packaging expert will be presenting its new machine for packaging vials. What’s unique about the innovation is that this top-loading machine features a table-top design, unlike Schubert-Pharma’s open top loaders. This makes it even easier for pharmaceutical customers to guarantee the required line clearance.

Information on a number of topics, such as the company’s collaboration with Faller Packaging, will also be available at the exhibition stand. As always, visitors will have an opportunity to receive advice from Schubert-Pharma on all aspects of automated pharmaceutical packaging solutions. Experts from Faller Packaging will be on site to answer any questions relating to packaging materials.
