Standard components for any product

Gerhard Schubert GmbH at Fachpack 2013 Hall 1 / 1-215 Crailsheim,

Germany. At this year's Fachpack in Nuremberg Gerhard Schubert GmbH will be at Stand 1-215 (Hall 1) demonstrating the possibilities which open up using extremely flexible TLM technology. The picker line display groups chocolate bars on TLM transmodules, illustrating one of the many functions which Schubert can configure from its proven standard components. Visitors are also invited to stop by the trade fair stand to gather information regarding other solutions, including filling, thermoforming and palletizing.

The trade fair machine runs with an output of 600 bars/minute and visualises how TLM lines handle products both flexibly and extremely gently.

As the most recently launched standard component, the TLM transmodule has further increased the compactness of TLM lines. In addition, new and more effective solutions can often be discovered for individual packaging jobs. This in turn results in a reduction in mechanisms. Thus line efficiency grows with even lower space requirements.

The patented TLM transmodule is a single-axis, rail-based robot. Energy and data transfer is contactless. Interchangeable size plates are placed on the transport carriages. Since their introduction in 2009, approximately 1,600 transmodules have been used in packaging machines worldwide.

Ranging from chocolate bars, cookies and pralines to bottles, tubes, bags and cans, Schubert TLM lines process any products and package them in any conceivable packing pattern.
