      Bottling lines for PET containers

      It is by far the most frequently used beverage packaging material: PET. The reasons for this are plain to see: PET containers are, on the one hand, extremely light and easy to handle and are, on the other, extremely stable and tough. But this type of container also offers unbeatable advantages in beverage production: As a raw material, PET can be manufactured very efficiently, which not only has a positive impact on the production costs, but consequently also on the sales price of the end products. At the same time, PET containers protect sensitive goods like beverages, food and medications against oxygen, germs and other harmful influences.

      When it comes to the production of beverages in PET bottles, Krones covers the entire lifecycle: From the manufacture of preforms and containers, through to the filling, labelling, packing and recycling of used plastic containers, and their re-use in the food industry.

      Bottling lines for glass bottles

      They are the container type of choice for alcoholic beverages. For water, soft drinks or juices, they often underline the premium character of the brand: glass bottles.

      Their material properties offer two significant advantages for their use in the beverage industry: Thanks to their good gas barrier, glass containers guarantee a high standard of hygiene and a long shelf life for the end product.

      And their optical appearance can also be a highlight: A range of different labelling methods, including the use of direct print allow for a myriad of design options, which draw the consumer’s eye to the product. In the Krones Group you can find the right technology for all fields of application – and not only for the complete value chain, but also for the widest range of beverage categories.

They are a container of choice because of their material savings and they stand out thanks to their excellent recyclability.
