Schubert paves the way towards a more sustainable future

Between 28 and 30 September 2021, the doors will be opened at the Nuremberg Exhibition Center for the FACHPACK 2021 show under the motto “We create the future”. As one of the world’s leading and most innovative packaging machine manufacturers, Crailsheim-based Gerhard Schubert GmbH will of course be among the exhibitors. The Schubert experts will be presenting their answers to developments in sustainable packaging in Hall 1, Stand 219. Visitors will also find a wealth of information on the lightline machine series and have an opportunity to experience a flexible TLM packaging machine in action. Schubert will be providing information online for those interested parties who cannot attend the event live. The trade fair organization itself will also be offering opportunities to follow the event via streams.

At the FACHPACK show, visitors will once again have opportunities to experience a customer machine live and to speak with the experts at the stand.

Environmentally friendly packaging is a topic that is gaining serious traction in the packaging industry and will play a major role at the FACHPACK show. Wherever plastic can be dispensed with in packaging, it is now being largely replaced by cardboard. With more than 50 years of experience in the field of sustainable packaging, Schubert clearly stands out from the crowd. At the trade fair, the packaging machine manufacturer will show visitors how converting to environmentally friendly packaging solutions can be achieved in a way that reconciles sustainability and cost-effectiveness – with the support of the experts from Schubert-Consulting, robot-assisted TLM technology and early planning. The experts at the stand will also provide information on in-house developments in packaging. Optimised packaging, which can result in more cartons being transported per pallet, has a sustainable effect on logistics as well. Thanks to Schubert’s unique modular system, packaging machines can be precisely tailored to customer requirements in terms of sustainability. Interested parties will learn how a Schubert line can be designed so flexibly that it can process both conventional and recyclable plastic and cardboard packaging.

Compact customer machine packs chocolate bars in bags or cartons

Visitors to the exhibition stand will experience live just how personalised and flexible Schubert’s machines are. The Crailsheim-based company has developed a machine consisting of a flowpacker and a cartoner for food manufacturer Ülker, which the Turkish company deploys to package its chocolate bars. Thanks to the system’s exceptional flexibility, the packs can either be packaged into multipacks in flowpacks, or into cartons. Despite its dual function, the machine stands out with its compact design. Customers also benefit from quick changeover between flowpack and carton formats and a very high output of 660 packaged products per minute. Visitors to the trade fair stand can observe live how the machine packs either three bars into a flowpack multipack or 24 bars into a box.

The lightline machines represent an ideal option for manufacturers of consumer goods to position themselves on the market quickly and sustainably with future-proof packaging processes.

Extremely durable machines with reliable operation

At the trade fair, Schubert will also be presenting its lightline machine series, which includes three types of preconfigured packaging machines to take on standard packaging tasks. In addition to the lightline Cartonpacker, the series covers pick & place applications with the lightline Pickerline and packaging into flowpacks with the lightline Flowpacker. The lightline machines represent an ideal option for manufacturers of consumer goods to position themselves on the market quickly and sustainably with future-proof packaging processes. Manufacturers can quickly expand their capacities or respond to new orders thanks to short delivery times and rapid automation. The proven functional principles of a TLM system from Schubert and intelligent machine control systems ensure reliable operation over the entire service life of the machine.

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.
