Three nights in Bangkok: ProPak Asia 2018

Krones presents its solutions to more than 40,000 visitors at the ProPak Asia, with special focus on flexibility and digitalisation.

 The capital of Thailand once again hosted the ProPak Asia trade fair from 13 to 16 June. The event is one of the most important trade fairs in the food, beverage, pharmaceuticals and packaging industry and, above all, is the biggest and most international trade fair of its kind in Asia, with more than 1,500 exhibitors from 41 different countries and an exhibition area of 55,000 square metres.Krones presented itself in Bangkok as competent partner for complete solutions for the filling, packaging and process technology, thereby focussing on processing water, carbonated products, as well as juice and milk.

Solomodul and Checkmat with DART 4.0

 One of the exhibits was the Krones Solomodul modular labeller, which is suitable for cold glue, hotmelt and self-adhesive labelling. Its modular design even enables the combination of various labelling techniques on one container. The Checkmat with DART 4.0 finally checks if the labels have been applied properly. With innovative camera technology and a DART 4.0 software which is easy to operate, the machine ensures maximum product safety and a high-performance level at the customer’s site.

Networked lines and digitalised processes

The subject of digitalisation has also not been neglected: An experimental set-up illustrated how to provide an economic and efficient connection to a filling line via a ReadyKit data box. The development of our Syskron subsidiary facilitates the entry of new, old and third-party machines into production data acquisition, thereby enabling optimised processes and cost saving with minimum effort.

Colleagues of the and our subsidiaries KIC Krones, System Logistics and Krones Izumi were also on site.
