Filling and packaging processes combined

Schubert-Cosmetics integrates all processes, from component feeding to filling and right through to final packaging, seamlessly within a single system. This makes conveyor sections between individual machines, repeated synchronisation and product carriers obsolete – along with the noise associated with them. This is made possible by the modular design of Schubert’s TLM machines and the use of the Transmodul.

No interfaces

Thanks to the intelligent transport robot – the Transmodul – product and components, from the feeder to the pallet, are always positively controlled in a defined and monitored state.

An integrated filling system

The primayr filling technology used is volumetric dosing by means of progressive cavity pumps.

A major advantage of these pumps is the large viscosity range which can be filled. They are also very suitable if the filling material requires gentle handling by reducing the impact of shear forces. The dosage is pulsation-free and constant. Individual servo drives are used for each filling station, which allows an inline weight control with fully automatic readjustment. Another advantage is the controlled thread breakage by a short reverse run at the end of the dosing process, whereby dripping is prevented. The progressive cavity pumps are also suitable for CIP / SIP.

Format diversity made easy

A wide range of primary packaging can be filled and packaged at the same time on a single line. Short changeover times mean that small batches can be produced in a way that is economically viable.

Integrated filling process for cosmetics – the benefits at a glance

  • High overall efficiency
  • Space savings of up to 50%
  • Filling accuracy above 99.8% (depending on the material to be filled)
  • Wide variety of bottles and tube shapes, as well as closure types
  • Most of the size parts as 3D printed parts
  • Format changes accomplished twice as fast compared to conventional systems
  • Simple, rapid cleaning without residue (CIP/SIP)
  • Gentle product handling, minimal shear forces
  • Low noise and wear, since no traditional puck-system is required
  • Format-free bottle feed
  • One control unit and operator console for all part functions
