The digital world for filling of the future
In order to be able to make reliable statements about the future state of production or upcoming maintenance, the necessary data must first be collected and made available in the cloud. And this can only be achieved through close cooperation between plant manufacturers and beverage producers.
This is precisely the leverage point for the Connected Line concept. The solution provides line operators with valuable information about machine states, stoppages and their causes, trends and opportunities for optimisation along the entire value chain. Connected Line stores all these data in the cloud, making them accessible to all parties at all times. The advantage is obvious. The better the communication between machines, processes and employees, the more efficiently production can be run. However, it is not only beverage and food producers who benefit from this, Krones is also in the position to offer even more extensive services. Thanks to reliable data and key figures, commissioning can be carried out more efficiently. Also, it will be possible to schedule maintenance in advance, for example, and generate spare parts requirement forecasts over the entire lifecycle of the line.
The technical components of Connected Line are developed and supplied by Syskron, the IT specialists in the Krones Group.
