Krones LDS Line Documentation System Cross-line acquisition of production data



LDS stands for the Krones Line Documentation System – software that records and analyses operating data.

KRONES LDS – Your benefitsOpenClose


Your benefits

  • Automatic recording of all available production data and losses
  • Display of machine states across all lines
  • Identification of root causes of faults on the lead machine and assigned stations
  • Analysis of production data with freely selectable scanning timeframe
  • Presentation of trends with the aid of customised variables

The complete line at a glance

Know exactly what’s happening – and how it can be done even better: LDS records and displays all production data. The clever soft-ware identifies the root cause of faults that lead to performance losses on the lead machine and gives specific advice on how line efficiency can be improved. It analyses losses in production just as reliably as efficiency gaps. That makes LDS the ideal tool for every-one who wants to optimise their production in the long term.

Yes – with the right IT!

The issue of IT causes furrowed brows in many businesses. Complicated processes, unstable systems, convoluted operation – who’s going to bother with that? We will! Because IT doesn’t need to be like that. Cleverly planned and optimally configured for your busi-ness, it makes everyday working life easier both in management and on the production floor. Whether you want to optimise the utili-sation of your line capacity, monitor product quality or bring your warehouse up to the latest standards, with the right software you can exploit every last quantum of efficiency for every task.

How to build your IT toolbox

What holds true for every other investment also holds true for IT: the chosen solution must suit your processes and meet your re-quirements. That’s why we won’t sell you any old standard, off-the-shelf solution. Quite the contrary: our experts place great value on getting to know the actual conditions in the plant before they tackle each project. They do that by analysing the work flows and taking a physical inventory of the existing equipment. Working from this overall picture, they get together with you to plan a customised solution based on the SitePilot toolbox for the food and beverages industry.
