Krones will turn its stand at Pack Expo Chicago into the “House of Krones”, displaying a range of solutions supporting the entire supply chain.

At its stand, booth #2138 in the south hall, the manufacturer will exhibit a variety of hardware and software solutions. On the hardware side, a marquee item is its Krones ErgoModul Series labelling system. “The newly developed EM series provides a suitable labelling machine for every application,” the company said.

“It comprises three main machines, six table diameters, and seven labelling station types, and it offers numerous options for combining the individual elements with each other.”

In software, Krones will showcase its SitePilot software platform, which combines a Manufacturing Execution System (MES), Process Control System (PCS) and Warehouse Management System (WMS) to manage every step of a food or beverage value chain from production to intralogistics.

“The SitePilot brand was created with a view to bringing all the IT products of the Krones Group together under a single roof,” said Krones. “It is geared exclusively towards the food and beverages industry and translates its requirements into a holistic solution.”

The stand will also feature an interactive bottle design area; automated guided vehicles from System Logistics; Krones’ e-commerce site Krones.shop; and Evoguard valves, pumps and tank safety systems.

Pack Expo International will be held in Chicago, Illinois, from October 14-17.
