Flexibility in Packaging Design
The appearance and the shape of the packaging play an important role in the cosmetics industry. In addition, requirements and needs of end users may vary considerably, particularly between countries and regions.
Thanks to Schubert, Schwarzkopf & Henkel can now switch between different variations of the colouring kits more quickly and thus respond to the requirements of the end-consumers in the respective countries and regions.
The packaging shown here is a carton with the attached lid erected from a flat lying blank:
- The carton is glued in the first two sub-machines and then transferred to the Transmodule in two rows.
- The individual components of the hair colouring kits are supplied from magazines partially online and partially offline.
- With the exception of the packaging materials in magazines, the components are detected by Schubert scanners and then inserted into the package with millimeter precision by the TLM-F44 robots, but only after a positive quality assessment.
- After the size change, the same sub-machines are used to de-stack the alternative packaging variant, the shaker.
- Another sub-machine closes the cartons and transfers them from the Transmodule to the discharge belt. After a size change, this sub-machine can be used to lid shakers.
