Of course, the innovation driver will be showcasing its latest technical advancements for the packaging industry at Stand D01 in Hall 14: Some of the highlights include cobots for the rapid feeding of different packaging components on a line, an extremely compact filling machine for cosmetic products and an entirely new, efficient, resource-saving feeding system for carton blanks. Beyond this, however, the packaging machine manufacturer is busy gearing up to the challenges of the future – with a concept study for a new generation of machines, in combination with an all-new type of transport system. Together, the two promise to advance current packaging processes to the next level of automation, flexibility and efficiency. The innovative technologies are complemented by a wide range of new services for more environmentally compatible packaging.
Five exhibits with cutting-edge technologies
Flexibility, efficiency and availability remain at the heart of Schubert’s robot-based modular technology. Through many demonstrations, visitors to the stand will have an opportunity to see for themselves – live and in action – how Schubert combines its proven approach with forward-looking concepts for new packaging processes.
A bar packer with new infeed: Blanks directly from the pallet
When the blanks magazine runs empty, machine operators need to react quickly to avoid unnecessary interruptions. With the new Schubert TLM Comfort Feeder, this is now a thing of the past, as can be seen on a bar packer at the trade fair. All it takes is to place the entire pallet with the blanks – still in the blank sheet – into the machine. An F4 robot then pulls the blanks one by one directly from the sheet and feeds them into the erecting process at a rate of 60 cycles per minute. This process also has another advantage: The sheet cutting process can be optimised to maximise packaging material utilisation – saving material, resources and costs. The combination of a new type of sheet infeed, high erecting capacity, and loading and sealing in a small space offers Schubert customers an exceptionally attractive machine concept.
The future of packaging: Unveiling of the new machine study
Anyone who is interested in taking a look into the future of packaging should definitely attend the presentation of Schubert’s next generation of machines. The Schubert developers will be presenting their concept study for a next-level, fully automated, highly efficient and reliable packaging process. An entirely new transport system for feeding the various packaging stations, new machine frames, new robots and a completely new control system offer a glimpse of how a production layout could be planned in the future.
