Case packers from Schubert – peak performance & reliable production

A case packer should accomplish one thing above all: pack ready-to-sell products securely, quickly and easily into shipping cartons. Food, baked goods and confectionery manufacturers all expect the best possible performance, as do beverage producers and the cosmetics industry. At the same time, the market and the retail trade are demanding a wide variety of packaging and constant adjustments. As a result, consumer goods manufacturers need packaging machines that offer an exceptionally high degree of flexibility. Even at maximum production output, the case packers also have to work with absolute reliability and without rejects.

In the best-case scenario, the packaging lines should also contribute to minimising a product’s carbon footprint, as the logistics lifecycle assessment is also becoming increasingly important. Cardboard is a packaging material with a high recycling rate. And even more sustainability gains can be achieved with material-saving cuts and tight filling of the packaging. Thanks to their robot-supported top-loading technology, Schubert’s modular case packers are the ideal solution to meet all these requirements. Whether seamlessly integrated into a complete line, or lean and fast as a stand-alone machine, they deliver outstanding reliability, efficiency and flexibility.

Cardboard, a Schubert strength from the very beginning

Cartonboard has been a Schubert area of expertise since 1966 – when company founder Gerhard Schubert invented the first carton erector. Since then, the company has continued to advance its technologies for erecting, filling and closing carton packaging with ground-breaking innovations, such as robot-assisted top-loading and the Transmodul transport robot. Schubert’s latest development, the Comfort Feeder in combination with the A6 erector, makes the fully automatic erection of flat blanks significantly more compact and easier than ever before.

You will always benefit from a Schubert case packer, as the modular machine concept is suitable for integration into complex, high-performance systems as well as for quick and easy automation at the end of a small manufacturing production line. Regardless of which case packer you need, Schubert’s advanced, tried & tested components guarantee a high-quality, efficient packaging process with gentle product handling and straightforward operation.

Gentle robot handling for sensitive goods

Robot technology – easy on your products and your staff

Be it glass, plastic or cardboard, bottles, bags, cans, blister packs or cartons – Schubert’s case packers can handle virtually all types of packaging. Customised robotic tools ensure a secure grip even with heavy products or unusual shapes. Robot technology can deal with liquid contents, breakable jars or sensitive surfaces. The Transmodul supports a smooth, efficient process with the help of customised format plates. They pick up packaging or products and transport them safely through the system. Gentle handling and packaging processes that are customised to each specific product reduce waste to a minimum and ensure that the lines remain an efficient, cost-effective investment.

Quick format changeovers and erecting straight from the pallet

As the last step in the packaging process, a case packer needs to adapt to current production requirements as quickly as possible. This calls for a simple format changeover via plug & play. And this is why we design our machines in such a way that they restart immediately in the same quality after switching to a different format – without the need for a start-up phase. Changing the dies on the robots requires just a few simple steps. At the same time, we are developing new feeding solutions such as the Comfort Feeder. It makes the constant manual refilling of the blank magazine redundant, as the blanks are pulled directly from the pallet for erection. This enables a case packer to work entirely autonomously for up to six hours.

Autonomy is also our maxim when it comes to robotic tools. Many of the tool components in the case packer can now be manufactured using the 3D printing process. This reduces weight, minimises wear and opens up new design possibilities – which you can leverage in your own production. With our PARTBOX 3D printing system, you can print your 3D format parts yourself using a PARTBOX printer. Our streaming platform gives you access to the packaging machine’s 3D format parts as well as newly developed tools, for example for other formats. Of course, we also supply you with the printing material. No waiting times, no delivery bottlenecks – you can get things done quickly and autonomously to keep your production processes running efficiently.

Packaging with maximum cost benefits

Space-saving, quickly available and cost-effective – a few more Schubert hallmarks! With us, you will find compelling solutions with innovative technology for both large and small automation systems. You can easily close your automation gaps with Schubert cobots, use our new high-performance Power Compact machine concept in the smallest of spaces or pack your products ready for transport with a lightline Cartonpacker to take on standard tasks. You can be confident that Schubert quality will always remain the same!


Power Compact – outstanding performance with the Comfort Feeder

The A6 erector inserts a cardboard blank into the designated tool for erecting.

Space constraints are by no means a rarity, especially in medium-sized companies. Nevertheless, setting up a fully automated high-output packaging process calls for special machine concepts. Under the name Power Compact, Schubert offers manufacturers extremely compact high-output packaging systems. One example is the case packer in combination with the Comfort Feeder. Feeding the flat blanks directly from the pallet by robot not only achieves 60 erected packs per minute, but is also extremely slim, user-friendly and cost-efficient thanks to the single-lane processing.

The tog.519 cobot – no need for programming

A cobot alternately picks up blue and pink confectionery bars from two conveyor belts and places them into mixed packs.

If you want a straightforward, flexible packaging solution, the Schubert tog.519 cobot is the right choice. Simply position it and let it run. The tog.519 transports packaged products into cartons quickly, reliably and steadily via pick & place. Its AI-supported image processing and high-performance robot technology enable a cycle of up to 90 products per minute. Without the need for complex programming, the cobot can directly pick unsorted products and place them precisely where they are needed. The pre-trained neural network immediately recognises what needs to be accomplished, even after a format change. For small and medium-sized manufacturers, it represents an ideal automation solution without requiring extensive knowledge and investment. For large companies, it is an ideal way to flexibly close automation gaps in production.
