      Quality control for beverage cans

      Twice as safe and thrice as quick

      If you see 33 cans whizzing past you every second, you can lose track of what's going on. This does not apply to the Cantronic. The can inspector detects even the most minute dirt or deformation at this speed. Both the cans and the machine benefit from such thoroughness: The cans, because they reach the point of sale at their best possible quality, and the machines because there are no malfunctions caused by faulty cans.

        containers or time 
      • Results display after successful/unsuccessful through passage
      • All of the results are saved automatically with the date and time

      Benefits to you

      • Very high product safety
      • Simple and low-cost manufacture of the test cans

      • Identification using transponder technology 
      • Password protection with automatic log-out function

      Rejection monitoring

      Monitoring of the rejection unit

      Benefits to you

      Precise quality control

      The high-resolution basic camera detects even the most minute dirt and irregularities. The additional camera unit enables you to even detect creases and dirt in the neck area which are very hard to find.

      High line efficiency

      Damaged or deformed cans pose a significant safety risk to the filling line which may result in machine standstills and even machine damage. The Cantronic sorts out all those "risky" cans thus increasing the overall line efficiency by approximately 5%.

      Remote diagnostics and maintenance

      The Krones Remote Service provides you with round-the-clock expert advice and support. If required, a Krones service engineer can access your inspector via a secure data link. Parameter settings, software updates and fault analyses can thus be carried out quickly, cost-effectively and with absolute security.

      Protected access

      Transponders protect the device from undesired access.

      High degree of operational reliability

      The Cantronic automatically rejects fallen-over containers and features a continuous self-monitoring function. Malfunctions and faulty operations are thereby prevented from the very beginning.

      Uniform operating concept

      All Krones machines are equipped with a uniform operating concept for maximum user friendliness.
