Varun Beverages Limited (VBL) had already placed two orders for two Krones blow-moulder/filler blocks and one Kosme 3Bloc in the past, and installed its first ErgoBloc L in 2018. This wet-end technology proved persuasive, not least thanks to the block’s compact footprint. Therefore, VBL decided to order another five ErgoBloc L systems from Krones.
You can certainly call it an investment based on trust – or to be more precise trust to the power of five. It was the gratifying performance of the block solutions from Krones that has prompted Varun Beverages Limited to order five new block systems.
The crucial factors tipping the balance in favour of Krones were high efficiency levels, good machine availability in the blocks and short change-over times, which are particularly important given the large number of different formats being handled. The customer intends to run PepsiCo’s complete range of drinks on each of the five new lines, which means up to twelve formats from 250 millilitres to 2.25 litres, depending on the facility involved.
