Schubert Efficiency

Increased efficiency is one of the main benefits of a new Schubert automated packaging line chosen by Scottish firm Tunnocks.

The high performance line has been installed at the Uddingston site to pack the famous Tunnocks teacakes; and is designed to pack either 6 or 10 teacakes to a box or 12 to a tray.

The high speed machine packs up to 67 cartons per minute for the 6 count carton and 40 cartons per minute for the 10 count carton.

The line can pack up to 400 products a minute; and has a Schubert vision system incorporated for quality control purposes. Any misshapen or broken products are automatically rejected before the final packaging process.

The system features a TLM-F44 Picker Station which is used to pick up the teacakes and place them on to the grouping belt conveyor; they are then transported to the machines central loading operation.

The rectangular cardboard carton is erected from a flat carton blank and glued by means of hot melt, using a carton closing machine. A Schubert TLM-F2 loading system then picks up the collated teacakes and loads them into the cartons.

The highly flexible system is also able to pack the products into an acetate tray. Simply by changing the format parts, the versatile machine is capable of de-nesting the tray, loading the new format with ‘completion inspection’ and discharging from the system.

Tunnocks has transformed its manual packing of teacakes “the new Schubert line has improved productivity, and efficiency has increased” commented Boyd Tunnock CBE.

“Our relationship with Schubert is strong; our operators have received exceptional training from Schubert and on visiting Crailsheim it was great to see how well organized the factory is” he added.

The first line has been so successful Tunnocks have just invested in a second Schubert automated packaging machine for packing its tea cakes.

Schubert has also won orders in recent months for other well known Bakery and Pharmaceutical Manufacturers.

Schubert UK, based in Meriden, near Coventry, produces innovative packing lines for well-known manufacturers in the food processing, dairy, beverage, pharmaceutical and health care sectors.
