Milestones

GeschichteIn the early stages we had the wish to build someday the most flexible packaging machine. It was to be a standard machine, a machine to be built in great quantities. A machine that is able to follow market changes. Over the years the machine assumed more and more concrete shapes documented by the milestones of the machine history.

  • 1966
    meilensteine_1

    SKA, the first box erecting and gluing machine developed in 1966 to work with hot-melt adhesive. An example of this model is on show in the packaging machine in Heidelberg.

    SSB, the first Schubert modular machine for filling and closing top-loading boxes.

  • 1985
    meilensteine_3

    SNC-F2, the world’s first packaging robot, has left an enduring legacy in the field of packaging machine engineering.

  • 1994
    meilensteine_4

    VMS, Schubert’s own packaging machine control system, now established and accepted the world over.
