Gerhard Schubert Introduces New Series of Preconfigured Machines

Compact design, short delivery times, quick set-up and commissioning – this is what the new lightline machine series from Gerhard Schubert stands for. For customers who want to efficiently automate standard packaging tasks with reduced format and packaging variants, and who value high-quality design and construction, the company now offers three attractively priced preconfigured machine types: the lightline Cartonpacker, the lightline Flowpacker and the lightline Pickerline.

High flexibility is not necessarily a key area of focus for all product packaging tasks. Often what is required are solutions to take on simple, standardised packaging tasks. Gerhard Schubert GmbH developed its new lightline machine series for manufacturers who want to efficiently automate their standard packaging tasks with reduced format and packaging variants.

“With our new Schubert lightline machine series, and as a globally recognised market leader in TLM packaging machines, we are consistently advancing the standardisation of our modular technology,” highlights Marcel Kiessling, Managing Director Sales and Service. Over 50 years ago, Schubert was in fact the first company to introduce the principle of modularity in packaging machine design. Since then, today’s market leader in top-loading packaging machines has continued to evolve its modular technology with a forward-looking approach to meeting future market requirements.

“Customers now have the choice between preconfigured machines from the new lightline product series with defined product and packaging formats, and freely configurable machines with extensive degrees of freedom, which are tailored to individual customer requirements. Of course, we guarantee the same high Schubert quality for all machines,” adds Marcel Kiessling. “A key advantage the Schubert lightline offers is that, since the new machine types are preconfigured, we can deliver them much more quickly and less expensively.” In the future, the time required from order receipt to commissioning by the customer should amount to only two to three months. And, since the machines are ready for use almost immediately, customers can react extremely quickly to new market demands.

Three machines to take on most any challenge

The Schubert lightline series comprises three machine types to handle the most important packaging tasks. The new lightline Cartonpacker takes on the role of a classic case packer when erecting, filling and closing cartons. The lightline Pickerline is a powerful pick & place line for picking up and placing products in trays. The lightline series of three is completed with the Flowpacker, which packs products in flowpacks in conjunction with the Pickerline.

Each machine type is based on preconfigured TLM modules. This enables Schubert to considerably speed up the planning and assembly process. In addition, the Cartonpacker, for example, is delivered as a unit in one module, which reduces the installation requirements.

All three machines in the new series stand out with their focus on essential functions, which results in even lower energy consumption and lower operating costs. The proven functional principles of Schubert technology and an intelligent machine control system ensure reliable operation with high system availability over the machine’s entire lifecycle. Another advantage is that the machines from the new lightline product series are suitable for smaller production volumes as well as for high output quantities. As you would expect from Schubert products, the lightline machines are scalable, i.e. they can be adapted to individual performance requirements by simply adding further modules.

Machine networking via GRIPS.world

Whether a Flowpacker, Pickerline or Cartonpacker – at Schubert, the machines in the new lightline product series always run in a high performance range as well. Schubert also offers comprehensive services to ensure that this remains so throughout the entire lifecycle of the machines. As part of Schubert Customer Services, the new machine types will be linked with the company’s new GRIPS.world digital platform in the future. Therefore, the three new lightline preconfigured lines will be equipped with the same scope of services as all other TLM packaging machines in terms of system availability (OEE) and preventive service. Through predictive maintenance, this platform will ensure long-term investment security in a TLM system in the future. Customers will also benefit from the integrated condition monitoring of information and data that will help them further increase their productivity. The packaging machine manufacturer guarantees secure data transfer through its GS.Gate. This machine gateway, developed by the Schubert System Elektronik subsidiary in collaboration with genua GmbH, protects the data through a firewall that encrypts it extremely securely.
