A flexible customer machine packs hamburgers into cardboard trays
At the Fachpack show, Schubert will be showcasing how robotics are enabling more flexibility with a traypacker. The customer machine packs hamburgers, which are sealed in a transparent pack, into cardboard trays with separate lids. The machine can pack products into three different packaging variants from 4-count to 16-count packaging. In the future, as many as 14 different packaging formats will be available. A variety of packing configurations can be created by flexibly combining single and multiple packs. Single trays can either be glued next to each other or stacked to create a double tray. A ‘completeness check’ also ensures that only complete trays filled with flawless products are sealed. As is now the case with every Schubert machine, the traypacker’s two F4 pick & place robots are also equipped with 3D printed format parts. The F4 picker tool for transferring the products as well as the lidding tools are each fitted with 3D printed parts, which the customer can call up as a print job via the PARTBOX streaming platform – and produce themselves using the new PARTBOX printer from Schubert.
