Krones: Beverage packaging system

The Varioline packaging system was developed by Krones as a flexible solution; the basic idea involved is that a single machine replaces up to six conventional individual machines linked by conveyors.

With the Varioline combination conjuror, packaging processes involving up to three stages can be handled by just a single machine. The logical consequence is space savings, reduced maintenance work, and fewer operators.

The modularized Varioline kit consists of three modules, which can be combined to form a customized packaging system. These three units, the cartoning, feed and basic modules, feature an identical basic construction, to create a modularized design concept that ensures flexibility for the future. The machine can handle up to 52,000 containers/hr.

The Varioline packaging systems can also be block-synchronised with other machines, like a Variopac Pro shrink-wrapper, so that besides carton packaging the packs can also be wrapped in film. This option is already up and running at three clients, who have thus created maximised flexibility within a machinery block.
