Alternative to shrink wrapping

Krones’ award-winning EvoLite packaging machine produces revolutionary packaging for plastic bottles in the form of strapped packs with integrated handles that do not use shrink wrap as secondary packaging, reducing both the amount of required energy and plastic by 75%.

This innovative machine is controlled by an integrated B&R solution with a custom HMI panel that can be used to efficiently perform control and diagnostic tasks across the entire Krones production line. The advanced ACOPOSmulti motion control system from B&R is fully integrated with the machine automation system and connected using POWERLINK -- an open, real-time communication protocol based on standard Ethernet -- to provide safe, highly repeatable and reliable machine automation.
