The provision of personalised and customised products is an unavoidable trend which is also increasingly shaping the food manufacturing market. The related interweaving of the consumer world with the production world is a pivotal challenge faced by this development. Current solution approaches in the Industry 4.0 environment offer major potential for creating customised, flexible production methods which are still economical.

The question is: can the smallest batches of up to batch size 1 be handled in a filling line? And so that the expenditure also makes economic sense? KRONES developers and the "Robofill" project team of the Bayerisches Forschungsinstitut (BFS = Bavarian research institute) believe yes and re-explore the limits of flexibility with the concept of a high flexible line.
