Schubert to display ultra-compact case-packing machine at Pack Expo International 2022
Charlotte, September 2022 – Schubert will once again present its versatile solutions at Pack Expo International. Schubert’s headliner of the show will be the lightline Cartonpacker exhibited by Schubert North America at booth 8730. The pre-configured case packer offers Schubert’s proven robot-assisted technology with a very short delivery time. Not only manufacturers of fast-moving consumer goods in the food, beverage, confectionery, and household sectors, but also pharmaceutical manufacturers benefit from Schubert’s modular packaging systems. Hence, a special feature will be the presentation of Schubert’s competence in pharmaceutical packaging at booth 19008 in the Healthcare Packaging Pavilion.
Schubert returns to Pack Expo International in October 2022. The family-owned leader in top loading packaging machines sees continued growth in North America across all market segments, and it is with this in mind that Schubert will present its versatile portfolio of future proof solutions with two show booths. The headliner will be Schubert’s lightline Cartonpacker showcased at booth 8730 by the North American subsidiary Schubert North America. The pre-configured case packer offers Schubert’s proven robot-assisted technology with a very short delivery time. In a single compact machine frame, Schubert has condensed its decades of experience in handling case packing and developed an automation solution that delivers maximum availability and outstanding packaging quality. Schubert’s modular, robot-based, top-loading packaging machines (TLM) enable manufacturers of all types of fast-moving consumer goods, to produce cost-effectively and efficiently. Schubert’s market-leading robot technology is ideal to position manufacturers of any sort of product on the market quickly and sustainably with future-proof packaging processes.
The lightline Cartonpacker on exhibit will demonstrate the packaging of croissants in clam shells. The clam shells will be packed into RSC cases, with four clam shells in one case.
A special emphasis will be put on Schubert’s competence in pharmaceutical packaging. Representatives of Schubert Packaging Systems will present the company’s know-how in pharmaceutical packaging automation at booth 19008 in the Healthcare Packaging Pavilion.
“For manufacturers Pack Expo international provides an excellent opportunity to meet industry leading suppliers and to discover newest technological developments. For us, Pack Expo International is the most powerful trade show in North America and after a two-year hiatus we are excited to be back in Chicago” describes Hartmut Siegel, CEO at Schubert North America.
Newly developed PARTBOX 3D printer from Schubert Additive Solutions
In other news, Schubert’s subsidiary Schubert Additive Solutions will present its newly developed Partbox 3D printer at the Schubert North America booth 8730. With PARTBOX, Schubert Additive Solutions had already created a digital platform from which customers could call up certified print jobs in their own production and produce 3D parts themselves using a standard filament printer. Now this process has become even more reliable and quality-driven, as the company has developed an entirely new 3D printer for its customers.
Printing 3D parts for the packaging process in-house offers manufacturers many advantages: ideally adapted robotic tools for all conceivable products, greatly reduced environmentally damaging and lengthy transport of new format parts, quick replacement in the event of defective tools and the possibility of simply producing new format sets for changed products themselves. “We believe that components should be produced when and where they are needed,” explains Conrad Zanzinger, CTO at Schubert Additive Solutions. The objective is to ensure 3D printing of technical components at the customer’s site in a reliable, safe, and high-quality process.
With its own streaming platform and printer, Schubert’s PARTBOX is now a complete system that enables manufacturers to produce components directly in their own operations – with the fastest possible availability. The digital process saves customers processing, shipping, and warehousing costs.
