Gerhard Schubert to exhibit lightline packaging system at PackExpo
German-based packaging specialist Gerhard Schubert is to showcase its lightline flowpacker at PackExpo international event in Las Vegas, US.
Taking place between 23-25 September, a total of 2,000 suppliers are scheduled to exhibit, with around 30,000 attendees expected.
The Schubert machine on exhibit combines a flowpacker and a pickerline in a single system and features Schubert’s patented, state-of-the art sealing technology for packaging heat-sensitive products even more gently into flowpacks. The exhibition machine will be installed at a North American baked goods manufacturer after the show.
For more than 25 years, Schubert has been increasing its market share in North America by providing end-of-line automation solutions with over 300 TLM packaging machines successfully operating on the continent. As the company revealed, nearly 90 percent of the world’s major manufacturers of fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG) engage with Schubert’s modular and compact packaging systems.
Across North America, Schubert TLM packaging machines package products of all kinds and from all industries – ranging from food, confectionery and baked goods, through to dairy products, beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and technical products – in trays, cartons, boxes, bottles, tubes or flowpacks.
“Modularity is our core competence,” explains Hartmut Siegel, CEO Schubert North America. “Modularity, flexibility, efficiency and reliable technology are the cornerstones behind the success of our top-loading packaging machines. The machines’ modular design, along with their advanced mechanical design and intelligent control systems, ensure exceptional effectiveness.”
Manufacturers increasingly require integration-ready, flexible and compact machine systems and Schubert continues to innovate solutions to support its customers successfully achieve their growth objectives. With Schubert’s new lightline machine series, manufacturers can master standardised packaging tasks with outstanding efficiency and high quality at attractive purchase costs.
The lightline Flowpacker on exhibit was designed for a North American, family-run baked goods manufacturer to efficiently automate its end-of-line process by packaging freshly baked croissants and Danish pastries into flowpacks. The system fully integrates flow-wrapping into the packaging line by combining a Flowmodul and a Pickerline in one system. During the show, the machine will package chocolate biscuits in a two by two formation into flowpacks. For details about the show, visit www.packexpolasvegas.com
