Gerhard Schubert will demonstrate how delicate pastry products can be packaged gently based on an existing TLM packaging system consisting of three sub-machines, which packages flowpacks filled with an iced puff pastry.
In the future, the system, which has already been sold to an Italian confectionery manufacturer, will be processing 135g, 200g, 400g and 500g flowpacks with a performance of up to 110 packs per minute.
The machine to be exhibited is the new generation of a packaging machine – without an electrical cabinet – developed by Schubert. It claims a visible sign of the elimination of the conventional electrical system on the packaging machine is the narrower head of the TLM machine’s frame.
The number of electronic parts has been reduced, leaving a few components. At the same time, the operation and maintenance of the machine is easier.
The TLM machine packages the tubular bags optionally in display cartons or pre-glued RSC cartons. The flowpacks can be grouped into the display cartons in different configurations: either single- or multi-row, standing or lying, on the short or long side. If products are packed standing, the product belt is swiveled so an F2 filling robot can take on the formations in the correct orientation and place them in the cartons. A TLM-F2 closing robot closes the carton.
