At the same time, the PPMA Show in Birmingham hosted the leading trade fair for the packaging industry on the British Isle. The Schubert UK team were very pleased with the positive feedback from customers, who praised the very effective trade fair presentation.
The Schubert packaging line shown at the PPMA Show consisted of three TLM sub-machines that combine flexibility, performance and efficiency in an extremely compact manner. The respective modules take on the erection, filling and closing of cartons, and are seamlessly connected via the Transmodul transport robot. Van Wijngaarden, the Dutch manufacturer of delicatessen products, will be using the machine presented at the show to package mayonnaise into a variety of container formats. At the fair, visitors experienced live how the TLM machine packs 450 ml mayonnaise jars into cartons using the counterflow principle.
The machine attracted an unexpected number of new customers to the stand. With a 70 per cent share of all visitors to the booth, the new customer contacts in Birmingham were especially high and therefore confirm the relevance of this industry platform for Schubert. “We recorded a 15 per cent increase in demand compared to the last PPMA in 2016 and therefore will definitely be back in Birmingham for the next show,” says Mark Stepney, Managing Director of Schubert UK Limited.
