The “House of Krones” will be built at interpack in Düsseldorf virtually at least. It will constitute the five core sections of Krones AG: digitisation as the roof and superstructure, process, filling and packaging technologies, plus intralogistics, as the functional premises, and Lifecycle Service as the base, the solid foundation.

In terms of machinery, the principal focus at interpack will be the Varioline packaging system, which has proved successful in gaining widespread acceptance among bottling and canning companies. The firms are frequently tasked with first placing individual containers in multipacks, and then packing these in suitable sales or secondary packaging. So by developing the Varioline as a responsively flexible solution, Krones has found an answer for this profile: here, a single machine replaces up to six conventional individual machines with conveyors. With the Varioline, up to three-stage packaging processes can be implemented with a single machine. Space savings in the layout, reduced maintenance outlay and fewer operators are the results. The modular Varioline kit consists of three units: cartoning module, feed module, and basic module, which can be combined to form a customised packaging system. This modularised construction offers flexibility for the future. The machine handles up to 52,000 containers per hour.

The Belgian speciality brewery De Brabandere is one of more than 30 bottlers who have benefited from the Varioline’s versatility. It bottles 23 different beers, and thanks to the Varioline produces up to 34 different packages.
