Krones was able to demonstrate its innovative strength again this year at the German Innovation Awards 2023. In the category "Special Mention: Excellence in Business to Business - Machines & Engineering", the mobile robot system Mobile Production Robotics (MPR) received the coveted award.
Mobile Production Robotics provides support during ongoing production
The system supports Krones' clients in supplying materials to filling and packaging lines. The mobile robot is used, among other things, on packaging machines that wrap six beverage bottles in film to form a so-called tray. Thanks to Mobile Production Robotics, the reloading of the film into the machine is now fully automated. This reduces operating costs and makes production even more flexible.
This is the second award this year for the mobile robot system: back in February, the Krones solution received the German Design Award.
