      On-Site Lightweighting – your awardable savings story

      Krones constantly works on new strategies and concepts to optimise its machines and lines in order to obtain the best outcome for its customers. One of those concepts is called On-Site Lightweighting and concentrates on the weight of the PET bottle.

      It is a flexible and time saving solution for optimising the weight of PET bottles in your production. Krones already worked together with well-known producers in the beverage industry and was able to adapt their bottle weights in the most profitable way. On-Site Lightweighting works best for example in combination with mathematical preform and bottle evaluation.
