Modular design and performance tailored to customer needs

Schubert’s eight standardised system components enable a highly adaptable machine structure, within which all functions, such as feeding, erecting, filling, capping/lidding/sealing, labelling, marking and palletising can be combined. These components, together with Schubert’s VMS control system, two-, three- and four-axis robots, image recognition systems and Transmodul, a rail-based transport robot, form the basis of the TLM machines.
