The Anuga FoodTec show is an extremely important information platform for the international food and beverage industry. As the world’s only supplier exhibition, it covers all aspects of production, including filling and packaging technology and packaging. This year’s event will be focusing on the issue of how food production can be geared towards bringing about sustainable change in the future. For the Gerhard Schubert company, which is dedicated to the achievement of sustainable goals with its Mission Blue Initiative, Anuga is a perfect opportunity to present its high-performance, resource-saving packaging solutions to a wide range of visitors.
To feed the Comfort Feeder, only the complete pallet needs to be placed into the line.
Handling blanks with the new TLM Comfort Feeder
The TLM Comfort Feeder will be showcased live and in action at the Schubert stand. The background to the development of the highly innovative packaging solution was the observation that delays can occur in the process if the blanks magazine on the packaging system runs empty – which result in machine operators having to react quickly to prevent unnecessary stops. With Schubert’s new TLM Comfort Feeder, this roadblock has been eliminated, as can be experienced live at the fair. All that is needed is to place the entire pallet with the blanks still in the cutting sheet into the machine. An F4 robot then pulls the blanks directly from the sheet one by one and feeds them to the erecting process in the A6 erector – at an impressive speed of 60 cycles per minute. This groundbreaking approach also offers another key advantage: The cut sheet can be optimised to ensure the greatest possible utilisation of the packaging material. This saves on material and has a positive impact on the ecological footprint. The combination of innovative sheet feeding, outstanding erecting performance along with loading and sealing offers Schubert customers an exceptionally advantageous machine concept. The bar packer is part of Schubert’s TLM Power Compact machine category, which describes TLM machines that deliver a high output density in a small space.
When feeding directly from the pallet, an F4 robot pulls each blank individually from the sheet.
