3D Printing Case Study Highlight - Schubert Transport Modules

Gerhard Schubert GMbH, a leading packaging machine manufacturer, has revolutionized its production process by incorporating 3D printing technology. By leveraging the capabilities of UltiMaker S5 Pro Bundles and UltiMaker material, the company has successfully developed custom-ordered parts for its top-loading packaging machines.

One of the key advantages of using 3D printing is the ability to produce multiple different formats on the same machine without the need for extensive rebuilding. This eliminates the time-consuming process of reconfiguring the entire machine for each new format, resulting in significant time and cost savings.

Furthermore, Gerhard Schubert GMbH's adoption of 3D printing has enabled them to distribute the custom parts via local manufacturing. This strategic decision not only reduces transport costs but also minimises the need for excessive storage space. By producing the parts locally, the company can respond quickly to customer demands and ensure timely delivery.

The utilisation of 3D printing technology showcases the company's commitment to innovation and quality. 3D printed part produced using UltiMaker 3D printers offers exceptional durability and strength, making it ideal for the rigorous demands of packaging machine components. This ensures that the custom parts produced using 3D printing technology meet the highest standards of performance and reliability.

With this innovative approach, Gerhard Schubert GMbH has not only streamlined its production process but has also achieved significant cost savings. By eliminating the need for extensive rebuilding and optimizing the distribution process, the company can allocate resources more efficiently and focus on meeting customer demands.

In conclusion, the integration of 3D printing technology into Gerhard Schubert GMbH's manufacturing process has resulted in improved efficiency, cost savings, and enhanced customer satisfaction. This forward-thinking approach sets the company apart in the packaging industry and reinforces its position as a leader in innovation and technology.
