Gerhard Schubert GmbH

Huge Time Savings and Design Dependability

To configure its complex packaging lines, Gerhard Schubert GmbH now uses a combination of Lino® 3D layout and Tacton Design Automation. This enables the Swabian packaging specialists to present optimized layouts to their customers in a significantly shorter time and to implement them on site without errors.

Packaging machines without control cabinets or modular machines – Gerhard Schubert GmbH from Crailsheim has always had a sense for special solutions. The company is constantly on the lookout for new technology-leading approaches to optimize its business processes.

Configuration software from Tacton Systems was identified as a tried and tested means of achieving this. Configuration specialist Lino supports Schubert in this area.

Gerhard Schubert GmbH is now using a combination of Lino® 3D layout and Tacton Design Automation to configure its complex packaging lines, enabling this southern German packaging specialist to present optimized layouts to customers much more rapidly and implement them on site error-free.

For around 50 years, the packaging machines and systems of Gerhard Schubert GmbH have stood for maximum flexibility. Schubert achieves this using a modular system of frames, robots and submachines. That enables customers to benefit from both cost-saving standardization and an extensive range of variants at the same time. Very early on, Schubert caught onto the fact that the Solidworks® CAD system they run can be used for variant configuration. However, the configuration possibilities of the CAD solution are drastically limited, and the company was a long way from automated design routines. Additionally, identifying and eliminating possible error sources in the configurations consumed a lot of time.

In its search for a comprehensive new solution, Schubert initially came across the configurator from Tacton Systems, and then discovered the 3D layout planning solution Lino 3D layout in 2013 at Lino’s Design & Sales Automation Conference. Both applications integrate directly in Solidworks, a tool that Schubert depends on. This is an invaluable advantage for the packaging wizards at Schubert: they can now put together the packaging modules directly in Solidworks on the basis of the Tacton configurator. Lino 3D layout controls the communication between the individual components. For example, when the width of a frame is changed, Lino 3D layout ensures that the adjacent modules adopt that width automatically and also updates the bills of materials. That makes invalid links a thing of the past.

A sophisticated rule set that monitors all combination possibilities both technically and logically makes this possible. Schubert was able to create and maintain this rule set right from the start, as the integrated rule editor requires no programming knowledge. In addition to the simplicity and reliability, Schubert appreciates a further key attribute: the system supports three-dimensional layout planning in which users can conveniently drag and drop components to create realistic packaging lines. This is ideal for creating convincing customer presentations. Schubert is also impressed by the enormous time savings. Entering changes used to take a lot of manual labor – easily two and a half hours for a packaging line. Today, the planners need just twenty minutes.

Since the rollout, we’ve generated 100% more layout plans than before, and thus doubled our order chances.
