Product-friendly packaging machines from Schubert
Sensitive products are at risk during packaging for a variety of reasons: Fragile baked goods such as delicate sponge biscuits, pressure-sensitive products such as airy croissants or heat-sensitive goods such as pralines and chocolate require special solutions throughout the packaging process. Thanks to its modular TLM packaging machines, Schubert is able to respond ideally to each individual customer and their special products. Quality is the main focus at Schubert. This is why the packaging machine manufacturer attaches great importance to solutions that can guarantee gentle product handling and high product quality as early as in the machine concept stage. Central to this is the targeted use of robotics and state-of-the-art robot tools. Robot technology not only ensures flawless quality, it also increases the efficiency of the entire packaging machine, as the following examples show.
An unlimited variety of tools for pick & place robots
Pick & place robots in a packaging machine only develop their full potential with precisely fitting tools. Specially manufactured robot tools are a guarantee for gentle product handling. This is why Schubert develops individual robot tools for each customer. An ideally adapted gripper or suction cup is especially important for sensitive products, because fragile or pressure-sensitive goods can be damaged quickly during automated picking & placing. Schubert uses 3D printing for challenging product shapes: The freely designed format parts from the printer can be cut precisely to any conceivable product shape – for an unlimited variety of automated packaging solutions.
Precisely fitting grippers and suction cups ensure gentle product handling in the packaging machine. Format parts from the 3D printer can also be adapted to any product shape.
