Trade fairs

Future-proof packaging solutions for the food sector

Packaging machinery manufacturer Schubert is set to launch its trade fair calendar at the CFIA 2022 (Carrefour des fournisseurs de l'industrie agroalimentaire) in Rennes, France. From 8 to 10 March 2022, visitors to Parc Expo Rennes Aéroport will have an opportunity to discover a wealth of information on the innovation driver’s cutting-edge packaging solutions at Stand F05 in Hall 10. With its highly flexible robot-assisted machine technology and expertise in alternative carton packaging, Schubert is well positioned to provide targeted support to food manufacturers on their journey towards greater efficiency and sustainability.

Following Schubert’s successful participation in last year’s CFIA, the packaging expert will be presenting its expertise to the French audience for the second time. With Charles-Antoine Freiher as new Sales manager and the company’s new premises at the Compiègne site, the experienced French Schubert team is well aligned to successfully respond to the current trends and high demands of the packaging industry. At Stand F05 in Hall 10, the experts look forward to demonstrating and clarifying Schubert’s sustainable packaging solutions and technical innovations to customers, prospective customers and visitors.

Real-life examples of efficient and sustainable packaging solutions

The focus of the trade fair presentation will be on practice-oriented application examples from the food, dairy and confectionery industries. These include frequently performed packaging tasks such as pick & place, packaging into flowpacks as well as cartoning a wide variety of products and formats. The modular design of its packaging machines and highly advanced robot technology enable Schubert to implement exceptionally flexible packaging processes. This flexibility is a major advantage, especially in view of the fast-moving food market and the need to switch to more sustainable packaging. For instance, Schubert’s packaging systems can switch between conventional and recyclable packaging materials – between plastic and cardboard trays, for example, or between composite films and paper-based films when packaging into flowpacks.

The packaging itself is just as important as the packaging processes: In the highly competitive consumer market, manufacturers can achieve and capitalise on decisive competitive advantages with sustainable packaging solutions. At its exhibition stand, Schubert will be demonstrating how recently developed packaging can make the entire process more efficient, more resource-saving and therefore more sustainable. For example, by reducing the volume of a package, by optimising blanks or by using a cardboard package to replace the previous plastic packaging. With Schubert as a partner, companies in the industry are ideally positioned to succeed today and in the future.

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.
