Krones, Inc: Pack strapping technology saves money, environment
Krones LitePac is a pack strapping technology that provides a complete pack system including a new packaging design for PET containers--the Evolite packer.
A resource-economical alternative to film-wrapped shrink-packs, the Evolite packer is comprised of a container infeed module and a container strapping module. In the infeed module, the containers are divided into 2 continuous lane flows. 4 strapping units then create the LitePac packs in the container strapping module. The system features fewer conveyors, reduced footprint, a simpler line layout, a smaller storage area in both the warehouse and the supermarket, and less pallet traffic. Said to provide more than 50% cost savings compared to shrink-films as a packaging material.
