    Krones Linatronic
    Linatronic empty bottle inspector with Deep Learning technology

      Smart and reliable inspection of empty containers

      The latest generation of thoroughness

      Whether it be material damage, contamination or the most minuscule particles of residual caustic: nothing can hide from the Linatronic. With its highly sensitive inspection modules it sees through each individual container – and only lets fault-free items pass through. Proof of its high precision sorting ability is not least apparent in its minimum false rejection rate of just 0.3 percent. How is this possible? Through the standard use of DART 4.0, the latest generation of Krones inspection software.

      Linatronic AI: The leap into a new era!

      The Linatronic AI is the first of its kind in the world - and ushers in a new era of the empty-container inspection technology. How is that? Because it is equipped with a neural network trained with Deep Learning for maximum precision. After 40 years of experience in inspection technology, we are daring to take the plunge into a new technology - and thus open up a whole world of previously untapped possibilities!

      Benefits to you

      Long-life conveyor belts

      Particular care was taken when selecting the surface of the conveyor belts. It is more resilient to glass and prevents the absorption of lubricants and liquids. 

      Quick type change-over

      The automatic adjustment of conveyors and the camera position ensure that the Linatronic is adjusted to new container types within just a few minutes.

      Immediate round-the-clock assistance

      With the GRS remote service platform your machine is directly linked with the Krones service department: If you require assistance, an inspection expert from Krones simply accesses the Linatronic online and immediately performs the task in hand – without having to travel to your company, at any time of the day or night. 

      Economic operation

      Inspection modules capable of multitasking, energy-saving components and a false rejection rate of just 0.3 percent prove that it is also possible to create maximum production reliability with a low total cost of ownership.

      Safety for you and your products

      The Linatronic protects your consumers against unpleasant surprises. For its inspection modules scrutinise every container and detect event the smallest defects or irregularities.

      Hygienic construction

      Smooth surfaces and a reduced number of machine supports ensure that a low amount of dirt clings to them and the machine is easy to clean.

      This is why the Linatronic is enviro-classified

      Energy efficiency

      • Complete drive systems with energy-efficient PM drives
      • All rejection units are operated electrically without additional compressed-air consumption 

      Media efficiency

      • Detection unit for compressed-air leaks
      • No cooling air required thanks to the optimised control of lighting units and the use of the most up-to-date LEDs
      • Minimised consumption of cleaning agents thanks to the hygienic design
