Standardisation and digitalisation
For Alessandro Pasquale, the ErgoBloc L is something quite special, because “it’s a preliminary stage for a complete block-synchronised line”. What he would like best is to have a line incorporating all systems, from bottle production right through to packing the bottles in sixpacks, and this without any intermediate conveyors whatsoever, on an ultra-compact footprint.
When planning his lines, there are currently two major aspects that take priority above all else for Mattoni’s boss: standardisation and digitalisation. In order to make sure this objective is achieved, Mattoni relies on a cooperation partner with a proven track record.
Krones has for quite a long time now been our main supplier of machinery, and things are going to stay that way in the future too. We’re very interested in a long-term, reliable alliance.
“Their technology is top-notch, service support and price are spot-on, the company displays a high level of flexibility, and their headquarters in Neutraubling aren’t all that far away, either. In order to modernise the state of the art in our plants rigorously and purposefully, we will over the next few years need about two new lines a year,” says Alessandro Pasquale.
