Schubert debuts latest technology in filling machines at PPMA Show

07 Aug


Schubert, the automated packaging system specialist, will be displaying a new high tech tube filling and closing machine at this year’s PPMA show. The highly flexible line will demonstrate how tubes are automatically unpacked from the shipping cartons and moved onto a transmodule transport section, in a mass flow. 

At the same time the tubes are aligned according to their printing marks, and transferred from the mass flow to a single row transmodule transport section. The tubes will be filled and closed using ultrasound, filling is performed by an eight position volumetric dosing station. 

The TLM tube filling and closing line has an output of 200 tubes per minute. At various different configuration levels, up to 800 tubes can be filled and closed per minute. 

“Schubert has recognized the growing demand for integrating a filling application within its automated packing lines, visitors to the PPMA show will see the new machines capabilities and it’s wide range of benefits” added Mark Stepney, Operations Director at Schubert UK. The Tube filling and closing machine will be on display on stand C50 at the PPMA exhibition from the 25th – 27th September 2012, at NEC Birmingham.
