Our virtual booth for interpack 2020

The 2020 trade fair year has so far, due to the coronavirus, been characterised by postponements and cancellations. The interpack, too, has had to be rescheduled to February 2021 to protect the people involved and to slow the spread of Covid-19.

In order to nonetheless provide an insight into its solutions for the packaging industry, Krones has now created a virtual trade fair stand, and rendered its exhibits for the interpack  accessible as a digital experience – faithful to the original and in 3D. The virtual interpack begins on 28 April 2020, and provides answers to the questions of how currently predominant resource consumption can be guided into a sustainable circular economy, and what options the industrial sector has for accomplishing this transformation.

Visitors to the virtual stand are not left unassisted. For questions, wishes and suggestions, stand support staff will be available from 28 to 30  April 2020 between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. CEST in a live-chat format.

There’s quite a lot to see on the stand, like the LitePac Top secondary packages, which in their manufacture score highly  in terms of lower energy consumption and less waste incidence than shrink-packs, in particular. LitePac Top can be handled using the Varioline 2M packaging machine, which will also be on show at the stand. Besides maximised flexibility, thanks to the use of lifetime-lubricated bearings, electric vacuum pumps and the recuperation of braking energy, it provides additional advantages in terms of sustainability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Flexibility, brilliant colours, and freedoms in the visual and haptic design of containers, this is what the DecoType direct printing machine from Dekron offers. With direct printing, new designs can be cost-efficiently applied to bottles within a minimised timeframe. By printing the motif directly onto the container’s body, labels and the concomitant waste can be eliminated. The process functions both with glass bottles and with containers made of virgin PET and recyclate. And the printed bottles can even be returned to the recycling process, and recovered using Krones’ MetaPure recycling systems. But with the MetaPure Recycling lines not only PET bottles, but polyolefins as well, can be recycled and even upcycled into food-grade PET.

To learn more about the packaging solutions and closed-cycle recovery capabilities from Krones, you can visit the virtual trade fair stand!

About us

Company details

All-round partner for the beverage and liquid-food industry

Whether made out of glass, PET or aluminium – Krones machines and lines process millions of bottles, cans and specially shaped bottles each day. Our customers mainly comprise breweries, water, soft drink and juice manufacturers, as well as dairies and producers of wine, sparkling wine and spirits or companies from the liquid-food field.

Speaking of solutions – whereas Krones manufactured only labellers back in 1951, the year in which it was founded, its product range now extends far beyond conventional machine and line construction: As a systems supplier, we offer our customers all machines and lines, as well as components, intralogistics and IT solutions, that they need for their production. Our comprehensive range becomes apparent if we take a look at our House of Krones:

We not only plan, develop and manufacture all of the machines and complete lines for the sectors of process, filling and packaging technology, but have specialists in the Krones Group who can also provide each customer with a customised solution for the major topics of intralogistics and digitalisation. Lifecycle Service creates the stable foundations here and makes sure that our customers know that their lines are still in good hands following the purchase of their new machine.

The main reason for this wide range is the strength of our corporate group. For the House of Krones comprises not only Krones AG with its headquarters in Neutraubling near Regensburg, but also a large number of subsidiaries all around the globe:

Krones Automata S.A. (service for Central and Latin America) Day after day, around 16.000 employees make every effort to serve Krones customers all over the work in the best and fastest possible way. This is achieved thanks to our strong international network which stands out with its more than 100 sites worldwide – and this large number of sites is also needed as around 90 percent of Krones solutions are in operation outside of Germany.

In addition to its strong global presence, Krones mainly impresses with its many decades of experience in mechanical engineering and in the customer segments, as well as through its highly qualified employees. In addition to the expertise provided by our customers, we also invest a great deal in our own production systems and in research and development. Around 5,500 registered patents and utility models demonstrate the company's innovation potential.
