Schubert will be presenting a TLM packaging machine without an electrical cabinet at the FachPack 2015 trade show in Nuremberg, Germany. As the servo modules of the packaging machine belong to a decentralized control mechanism for TLM robots, an electrical cabinet will no longer be required.
In this packaging machine, the number of electronic components has been significantly reduced. Thus, the maintenance and operation has become much easier than before. Now, customers can perform their packaging jobs in a more user-friendly, automated environment with minimum involvement of personnel.
Schubert’s packaging machine has a water cooling system to increase the durability of its remaining electrical components. Interestingly, this cooling feature reduces the waste heat of the system. With the help of a heat exchanger, customers can use the energy, arising out of water cooling, for different purposes.
TLM Packaging Machine Set to Reduce Maintenance Cost
At the FachPack show, the packaging machine’s functionality will be exhibited through a pick and place procedure. This procedure would include four-axle TLM F44 robots selecting white and black bears from a white product belt and subsequently placing them on Transmoduls in a certain formation.
Schubert’s new TLM vision system is able to detect products in a very low-contrast situation as in this case of white bears on a white background. This system uses the data collected from scanner to determine a height profile and consequently, the three-dimensional pattern of materials to be packaged. It can even identify the defects of products.
The 3D scanner enables the packaging machine to recognize images more accurately and effectively than before. Consumers using this packaging machine will benefit from higher productivity, improved quality and less waste.
This vision system is capable of identifying the weight of every product as well. As an end result, it enables manufacturers to save up to 3% in crude material as over-production will not be required.
At the show, Schubert will share some in-depth information on other TLM systems. Starting from filling procedure for liquid cosmetic products to thermoforming, various technologies will also be explained.
Schubert will be displaying the new concept for the first time at FachPack Show. The new TLM packaging machine without an electrical cabinet will be there to showcase the innovative power of Schubert.
