Modular packaging machines with built-in flexibility

How flexible packaging machinery really is cannot always be seen at first glance. But at the very latest, at the second. For instance when the fast-moving packaging market demands new formats or new, more sustainable packaging materials. With a packaging machine from Schubert, manufacturers can rest easy. Thanks to the modular construction principle and the state-of-the-art robots developed in-house, flexibility is built into the TLM lines right from the start. This is what makes modular packaging machines from Schubert so efficient, sustainable and cost-effective in the long term.

As a leading manufacturer of modular packaging machines, Schubert pays the utmost attention to optimised seamless process chains and packaging technology that is one hundred per cent tailored to the specific needs of the sector. Behind this are the decades of research to optimise our packaging machinery as well as the ingenuity of an innovative industry driver in developing elegant and successful packaging solutions. That is why packaging machines from Schubert not only ensure extremely high availability, but are so flexible that they can even process conventional and new packaging materials on the same line.

Modularity based on the building block principle

Individually designed packaging machines from proven components

At Schubert, this is how a packaging machine individually designed according to customer requirements comes to fruitition: After comprehensive planning together with the customer, a new robot-supported system is created from our tried and tested system components using a modular approach. The modular design allows the performance of the machine to be flexibly determined and tailored to the customer’s specific needs. With the help of standardised system components and sub-machines, all processes are integrated into one line in a lean and seamless manner. Basically, Schubert packaging machinery can be used to package all kinds of products. For this purpose, the Schubert experts develop ideally matched robot tools for each product.

All components in the Schubert modular system are designed to be compatible with each other, and can be combined again and again to create highly efficient packaging solutions. The earlier Schubert is involved in the planning phase, the more savings potential along the process chains can be incorporated into the customer solution. By analysing upstream and downstream processes, improving existing packaging or developing new packaging formats, as well as robot-based technology, the entire packaging process up to and including transport can be optimised for efficiency, sustainability and cost-effectiveness.
