Processes integrated without interfaces

Schubert-Pharma informed visitors to Pharmapack in Paris of its comprehensive range of packaging solutions and engineering services for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. At the heart of its offer is the ability to seamlessly integrate a wide variety of processes and functions, even with external systems, into Schubert’s top-loading machines. Labelling, quality control or serialisation tasks can be safely carried out by the packaging machine.

Whether it’s vials, ampoules, plasters, infusion bags, syringes, devices or multi-purpose products – Schubert-Pharma offers pharmaceutical companies a tailored solution for every single product. A wide range of packaging tasks can be efficiently implemented with the components in the modular systems offered by Schubert technology. Schubert-Pharma can draw on wide-ranging engineering expertise regarding integration of additional functions, such as a turntable for the infeed of vials, as well as fully integrating systems from third-party suppliers into the control concept of TLM systems. The main advantage for the operator is the simple operation of these functions as no additional user interfaces are required.

Optical quality control across the board – the finger flange is aligned before verification of variable data on every single syringe.

Full process integration

Options for integrating processes are extremely flexible. They range from simple functional additions, such as labelling systems, to complex data management systems (track-and-trace).

The tried and tested Schubert image recognition systems carry out the optical control functions and quality control tasks. This includes mix-up checks, verifying the presence and completeness of products, and shape control.

Integrated external systems, such as labellers to apply tamper-evident seals or camera systems to verify serial data, can be seamlessly integrated into Schubert’s own Track-and-Trace system.

With BFS products or blister packaging, deep-drawing, sealing, cutting and punching within the TLM systems take place in an automated process. Tray production and assembling of cartons for secondary and final packaging are also carried out without manual labour or removal of products from the line.

Measures such as the attachment of tamper-evident closures, dividers for transport safety, the exclusion of glass-to-glass contact within the packaging machine and gentle product handling all ensure a high degree of safety for users and patients alike.

The engineering office with the packaging experts

The experts at Schubert-Consulting are available at Pharmapack to customers for any further consultancy requirements. There are hardly any limits to the integration of Schubert’s own technologies as well as solutions from other suppliers when it comes to machine layout. As a result, each customer receives an overall concept that is tailored to their individual needs. The Schubert Packaging Systems business unit supports customers in the planning and implementation of various packaging processes, from theoretical planning through to implementation and production of a system that is ready for operation.

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.
