Upgrade for our Modulfill HES beer filler

I’m not revealing anything new when I say: from Krones, every beverage producer gets precisely the filling system that’s ideally matched to his product’s requirements. But Krones would not be Krones if we didn’t continually surprise the market with major and minor innovations.

The most recent example for this kind of upgrade is the Modulfill HES. Basically, the filler is an authentic beer expert: but the machine on show at this year’s BrauBeviale also bottles carbonated soft drinks and wine, at speeds of up to 35,000 glass containers per hour.

Johannes Plank, as one of our filling technology experts, is available on the stand in Nuremberg to answer any questions interested visitors may have about the new Modulfill HES. For those of you who can’t make it to Krones’ stand in Hall 7A, he provides a brief description of the filler’s highlights – and also takes a look at the future of unmanned production:


Besides the robot, the filling system also scores highly with some additional technological innovations and design enhancements, constituting definite pluses particularly in terms of operator-friendliness, space-economy and hygiene. From the infeed, then filling and closing, all the way through to the discharge, we’ve grouped together for you here all the new features involved.
