TLM tube filling and closing machine

Schubert at the Anuga FoodTec Trade Fair in Cologne

At the Anuga FoodTec 2012 (27-30 March) in Cologne, Gerhard Schubert GmbH will be presenting its new tube filling and closing machine in Hall 6.1 at Stand A066/B069. The tubes are unpacked from shipping cartons fully automatically and moved onto a transmodule transport section in a mass flow. At the same time the tubes are aligned according to their printing marks, they are transferred from the mass flow to a single-row transmodule transport section, where they are filled and closed using ultrasound. Filling is performed by an eight-position volume dosing station. Only 1/16 of the standard welding energy is required for ultrasonic welding. The tubes are sealed with a cold sealing tool, and any product located in the sealing zone does not negatively affect the quality of the seal. The tube filling machine which will be exhibited in Moscow has an output of 200 tubes per minute. On TLM tube filling machines of various configuration levels, up to 800 tubes can be filled and closed per minute.

On a projection screen spanning three metres, Gerhard Schubert GmbH will be providing information about the rest of its packaging machine range, which primarily consists of highly-flexible top-loading machines and high-tech picker lines.
