Highly flexible machines for future-proof packaging processes

Global market leader and innovation driver Gerhard Schubert GmbH will be presenting its flexible, robot-based, top-loading packaging technology (TLM) at the international ProPak China trade fair in Shanghai from 23 to 25 June 2021. The modular machines pack food, confectionery, beverages, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and pet food extremely efficiently into a wide variety of packaging materials – including cartons, boxes, trays, flowpacks and bottles. Thanks to sophisticated robotics and intelligent control, Schubert machines can process both conventional and sustainable packaging.

Thanks to advanced robotics and intelligent control, Schubert machines can switch from conventional to sustainable packaging.

Packaging machine manufacturer Schubert has been present and active in the Shanghai region with a sales and service subsidiary for three years and is now presenting its automation solutions at the ProPak show for the second time. With its innovative TLM packaging technology, Schubert relies on a combination of modular system components, state-of-the-art robotics, reduced mechanical parts and intelligent control technology. The manufacturer develops and builds almost all machine parts itself in view of optimising them to the specific requirements of the packaging industry. This philosophy results in extraordinarily flexible, efficient and reliable machine processes that are ideally adapted to the future requirements of a sustainable packaging industry.

With Schubert as a partner, recyclable packaging and sustainable processes can be implemented along the entire supply chain in a future-proof manner.

A broad portfolio with innovative technology

The manufacturer’s broad portfolio includes systems ranging from case packers, pick and place machines and flow-wrapping machines, all the way through to customised and extremely sophisticated packaging lines. Tools individually manufactured for each application, including 3D printing, ensure gentle and reliable product handling and fast format changes. The PARTBOX part streaming platform allows customers to print 3D tools themselves at their own production sites. An image processing system developed by Schubert enables comprehensive quality control of the products before packaging. With the GRIPS.world digital customer platform, the packaging machines also offer all important functions and data for monitoring, performance optimisation and documentation at a glance.

Since 2018, Schubert has been present for customers in China with a sales and service office in the greater Shanghai area (Maggie Ma (Office Manager), Ping Meng (Technical Director) and Gavin Liu (Sales Director), from left).

Future-proof through sustainable packaging solutions

With Schubert as a partner, companies are also future-proofing themselves to meet market requirements in the area of sustainability. Thanks to the machines’ flexible modular system and highly versatile robot technology, both conventional packaging materials such as plastic trays or composite films as well as modern sustainable packaging made of cardboard or recyclable flowpack films can be processed. The machines can even switch between both packaging materials within the same line. Moreover, Schubert supports its customers with its own packaging development team and the Schubert-Consulting division: The consulting experts provide comprehensive consulting services along the entire supply chain for efficient and sustainable packaging processes.
