Krones offers bottlers sustainable alternative to shrink bundlers

June 3, 2013
The award-winning EvoLite packaging machine from Krones produces revolutionary packaging for plastic bottles in the form of strapped packs with integrated handles. This alternative to shrink wrap as secondary packaging reduces both the amount of required energy and plastic by 75%.

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