5. Flowpack system gently packages heat-sensitive products

The lightline Flowpacker combines a Flowpacker flowpacking unit and Pickerline pick-and-place machine in an integrated unit. The system, produced by Schubert, includes advanced sealing technology for gently packing heat-sensitive products into flowpacks.

The Pickerline technology enables manufacturers to handle standardized packaging tasks with a combination of high efficiency, quality and cost effectiveness. F4 robots pick products from the belt and place them in trays; users can choose configurations of one to six robots to fit their specific performance requirements.

The company’s Flowpacker is suitable for flow wrapping different product formats, whether they are flat or laying on their side, stacked or pre-packed. Integrated 3Dimage recognition detects position, location, height and quality, ensuring robots only pick products with no flaws. Customers can choose from a number of sealing systems, including an advanced ultrasonic sealing unit.

Schubert will show the lightline Flowpacker at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2019 in Booth US-7649.
