Ultimaker & Gerhard to print functional end parts

Ultimaker, the desktop 3D printing company, and Gerhard Schubert GmbH, the top-loading packaging machines (TLM) company, collaborate to enable customers to print format parts for machines used to automate the manufacturing process of products from markets such as foods, confectionery, beverages, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and technical consumer goods. The machines, created by Gerhard Schubert GmbH, are very modular and can be easily adjusted to new products. Ultimaker supports the German company in facilitating their customers’ need for customized parts to ensure maximum productivity, avoid transportation and logistical risks, and allow full cost transparency, predictability, and uptime of their machines.

Well-known brands such as Ferrero, Nestlé, Unilever and Roche rely on Gerhard Schubert GmbH’s automation solutions, as do many small, medium-sized and family-run businesses. The packaging machines from Gerhard Schubert GmbH are known for their flexibility, efficiency and reliable technology. To take their modular approach to the next level, the company invested in the creation of a digital warehouse and Ultimaker 3D printers to ensure their customers can get their hands on functional parts where they need it, when they need it.
