Trade fairs

Gerhard Schubert GmbH at all4pack in Paris

At this year’s all4pack trade fair in Paris, Schubert is presenting its new lightline Cartonpacker to the French market for the first time. The case packer erects, fills and closes cartons in a very small space.

Schubert presents the case packer from the new lightline product family

The preconfigured design allows customers to benefit from a short delivery time and lower procurement costs. The Cartonpacker is an element of the new Schubert lightline machine range. The company now offers three preconfigured packaging machines for standard packing tasks – designed for specific product and format variants. Along with the “lightline Cartonpacker”, these can also be used for pick-and-place applications with the “lightline Pickerline” and for packing into flow-wrap bags with the “lightline Flowpacker”.

Not all packing tasks demand the utmost flexibility. Often the focus is on simple, standardised packing tasks. At the same time, many manufacturers value high-quality machine engineering. For packing, filling and closing cartons in a very small space, Schubert now offers the lightline Cartonpacker. The machine is available in four versions for different types of carton: trays, shelf-ready cartons, RSC cases and wrap-around cartons. The Cartonpacker is also designed for a specific product, e.g. bags, boxes, bottles or cans. Depending on the type of carton, the machine is equipped with a suitable erecting, filling and closing tool. Schubert offers flexibility within the machine version: each product type can be packed into different format variants.

Delivered quickly and ready for use

At just 3.5 x 2.5 metres, the Cartonpacker scores points for its compact design. All function units – erecting, filling and closing – are put together in one preconfigured TLM frame. Thanks to its standardisation, customers benefit not only from attractive investment costs, but also from short delivery times and accelerated entry into production. Schubert supplies the machine as a unit: assembly and commissioning within one week will also be possible in the near future. The time from receipt of the order to commissioning will amount to just two to three months. This will allow manufacturers to expand their capacity or react to new orders more quickly. The tried-and-tested functional principles of a Schubert TLM line and the intelligent machine control ensure reliable operation with a high degree of line availability for the entire service life of the machine.

Up to 200 boxes per minute

At all4pack, Schubert is presenting a lightline Cartonpacker that securely places up to 200 boxes per minute into wrap-around cartons. The cartons are perforated in a way that allows them to be opened quickly and easily by retailers and used as shelf-ready displays. The machine is designed for two different carton sizes: The first format of 190 x 195 x 180 millimetres holds ten smaller boxes, which can be packed into the carton and placed one behind the other. If 14 larger boxes are required in a shelf-ready pack, the 375 x 242 x 180-millimetre carton should be used. The Cartonpacker on display fills between 11 and 19 wrap-around cartons per minute.

Standardisation for more customer benefits

With the new Schubert lightline machine range, the globally recognised market leader in top-loading packaging machines continues to move the standardisation of its technology forward – with the focus firmly on the optimal solution for the different needs of its customers. “Manufacturers can now choose between preconfigured machines from the new lightline product family with defined product and packing formats, and freely configurable machines with full movement axes that are individually tailored to customer requirements. For all these machines, we guarantee the same high quality that Schubert always offers,” says Marcel Kiessling. Schubert’s packaging machines allow manufacturers of all sizes to make the switch to robot-based automation or to expand existing lines.

The new Schubert lightline machine range includes packaging machines for standard packing tasks with preconfigured system components – along with the “lightline Cartonpacker”, these can also be used in pick-and-place applications with the “lightline Pickerline” and for packing into flow-wrap bags with the “lightline Flowpacker”.

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.
