Looking to the future: Schubert’s solutions at interpack

What packaging machine manufacturer Gerhard Schubert will be presenting at this year’s upcoming interpack will be “beyond” packaging technology, the company has said.

It will be showcasing latest technical advancements for the packaging industry including cobots for the rapid feeding of different packaging components in a line, a compact filling machine and a new, efficient, resource-saving feeding system for carton blanks. The focus overall will be on the challenges of the future, with a concept study for a new generation machines.

Visitors to this year’s interpack will have the opportunity to examine latest developments, as the last edition of interpack took place in 2017. The company’s presence at the event will reflect the company’s vision for the future: to develop sustainable packaging solutions for tomorrow’s world. With this in mind, the portfolio the company is presenting is expanding its expertise in packaging machine design, for the interests of customers and the environment and setting itself up the future.

Linked to this is the company’s Mission Blue Sustainability Initiative, the goals of which are becoming tangible measures.

Services offered by the company include the five-point Packaging Perspectives programme which includes Schubert expertise, packaging development, testing facilities at the technical centre and laboratory, as well as customised consulting services. On request, experts can provide support in switching to more sustainable packaging, for example with glue-free box alternatives or more environmentally friendly flow-wrap films.

Schubert Packaging Systems will be represented at the stand with its three divisions: Pharma, Schubert Consulting and Turnkey Solutions. The Schubert Additive Solutions subsidiary will also be on hand, demonstrating its PARTBOX solution and 3D printing at its respective stand.

Of the innovations on display, this includes new company cobots, which can take over on the feeding of various packaging components. A separate cobot will be processing bars, chip bags or reflective pouches to demonstrate the smart nature of its AI. The free-standing robots are well suited for picking up unsorted lightweight products via pick and place and processing them at 90 cycles per minute. Flexible work locations, a wide variety of pick and place tasks, high process speed and simple operation are all of the advantages the cobots offer.

Also on display will be the Schubert Flowpacker, which is suited for manufacturers looking to quickly switch between flowpack films with different properties. It enables both recyclable, mono-plastic films and paper-based flow-wrapping films. Cross-sealing is performed either by a box motion unit with ultrasound or via rotating sealing jaws with heat sealing.
