Transmodule offers Unlimited Flexibility

27 Mar



Schubert, the automated packaging system specialist will be presenting an F44 picker line at this year’s Total exhibition. The highly flexible line is capable of packing products ranging from chocolate bars and biscuits to bottles, tubes, sachets and cans in complex collations. This type of flexibility is made possible when using the TLM transmodule.

Transmodules are the intelligent vehicles driven by a servomotor which carry out numerous transport tasks, Managing Director of Schubert UK; Mark Stepney says “continuous innovations mean that the Transmodule is becoming more compact with better performance. This enables the supply of smaller more flexible packaging machines”.

Visitors to the Schubert stand will see TLM F4 robots pick up Tunnocks teacakes from the product belt and place them, pre grouped onto a Transmodule in non-stop operation. Schubert Transmodules have been successfully integrated in packaging machines since September 2008. They are equipped with a path control and can be used for both, continuous operation and for a combination of cyclical and continuous movement.

Flexibility results when simple mechanical systems, intelligent control and interchangeable tools are used. The transmodule was the first transport robot worldwide and was developed based on these criteria. The F44 pickerline will be on display on stand H70 at the Total exhibition from the 4th – 6th June 2013, at the NEC Birmingham.
