Krones presents newly developed glass filler


All over the world, small manufacturers, mid-tier filling plants and large beverage conglomerates put their trust in lines and solutions from the Krones Group. For the company, the BrauBeviale is the perfect platform for meeting and exchanging mutual feedback with clients both present and prospective.

One of the highlights on Krones’ stand at this year’s BrauBeviale is a newly developed glass filler, the Craftmate G. It can handle up to 24,000 bottles per hour, and can be combined with up to two closers for crowns, screw-caps or aluminium roll-on closures. In technological terms, it resembles the fillers from Krones’ field-proven series. For example, it operates with the HRS systemfeaturing a vent tube, which guarantees accurate fill levels. In order to keep the filler as compact and simple as possible, however, there are also differences from the Modulfill series. For example, necessary gush-type jetting systems have been integrated, though exterior cleaning is performed manually.

The company's specialist for digitalisation, the Krones subsidiary Syskron, is also bringing along an innovation. With the design enhancement of Share2Act, it has created a platform with multi-client capability in which not only can all machines in the production operation be mutually linked and imaged, but the classic functionalities of MES systems can also be united on a single user interface, said Krones.
