Interpack 2017 – Schubert scores with digitalisation

With four new orders and several new projects, Gerhard Schubert GmbH looks back on a successful interpack 2017. The most important industry trade fair once again confirmed its significance for the company. As early as at the press conference on the first day of the fair, Gerald Schubert, a Managing Director of Gerhard Schubert GmbH, announced the signing of a contract in the double-digit million range. The confirmation was given to the market leader in digital packaging machines on the eve of the first day of the interpack, ensuring a successful kick-off for the company at the fair.

Overall, the fair delivered very positive results for Schubert: “We were delighted with the number of visitors to our booth. Many international customers, with whom we enjoy close, long-standing partnerships, visited us at the show. We also enjoyed many very positive conversations with both existing customers and new contacts about specific project inquiries. Altogether, we took in three orders and several very concrete inquiries,” summarised Marcel Kiessling, Managing Director for Sales, Service and Marketing at Schubert. “At the fair, we presented our GRIPS.world digital platform, which was met with an amazing response from visitors. The customers also showed great interest in our new integrated Flowmodul flow-wrapping unit as well as in Schubert’s own 3D scanner,” added Kiessling.

At the international press conference, Managing Director Ralf Schubert introduced the new GRIPS.world digital platform, whose long-term benefits will extend far beyond predictive maintenance and condition monitoring.


At the interpack, Schubert presented its new digital solution – GRIPS.world – which will raise internal communication and communication with customers to an all new level of performance. The web-based platform brings together all important functions for the monitoring and documentation of machine data under a single user interface.

The company demonstrated the flexibility of its high-performance technology with four TLM packaging machines that pack confectionery and cosmetic products. In addition to a TLM packaging machine with an integrated 3D scanner and Flowmodul – the new flow-wrapping unit from Schubert – visitors also had an opportunity to see a new TLM carton erection system, which defines a new benchmark in terms of performance and format changes.

The Schubert Group celebrated a premiere with the presentation of its new Schubert-Cosmetics team of experts. Under the SPS umbrella (Schubert Packaging Systems) – the experts in systems engineering and engineering consulting – the corporate group now bundles its expertise for cosmetics manufacturers.

Space researcher and former scientific astronaut Prof. Dr. Dr. Erich Messerschmid was the guest speaker at the evening event on the Schubert booth.

To kick off the interpack exhibition, Schubert invited guests to an evening event where space researcher and former science astronaut Prof. Dr. Dr. Ernst Messerschmid spoke on the importance of space research for progress. He not only talked about his experience in space during his mission with the Space Shuttle Challenger in 1985, he also showed what aerospace contributes to the digital world and Industry 4.0.
