The Krones Contiform family of stretch blow-molders, now in its fourth generation, is used to produce PET bottles. The focus in this latest evolution was on sustainability and digitalization – two issues currently pre-occupying all players in the industrial sector. Intelligent features such as Contiloop AI, Air Wizard Triple, and Skip-and-Run combine to reduce the new generation’s CO2 emissions by 16%. Due to a synergized symbiosis of human-centred operating options, any malfunctions are displayed not only on the control panel but also on mobile terminals.
The mobile robotics system, supports operators in supplying materials to the filling and packaging lines. In one such application, it is used for the automatic refilling of film reels in packers.

Thanks to its integrative, no-frills design, the robot accurately meets all relevant standards in the food and beverage industry.
