Lines Engineering

    Lines Engineering consists in assembling and harmonizing the machines to create a Line:
    - Own production solutions (Blowers, Filler, Labellers, Depall, Pall)
    - Krones Group machines
    - External partners machines 
    Connection between the machines guaranteed by the conveyors; the dialogue between the machines is modulated and managed through the line automation.

    Lines Engineering for Beverages, Liquid Food, Home and Personal Care applications

    consists in putting together and harmonizing the own production solutions, integrating the machines of our production, with those belonging to the Krones group or to external partners. The connection between the machines is guaranteed by the conveyors and the dialogue between the machines is modulated and managed through line automation.

    Linear Line for One-Way & Returnable Big Containers

    As big containers is already a more sustainable format due to the capacity of the bottles, returnable containers is even more greener! Kosme can provide Linear o Rotative solutions for big containers up to 20 lt!

    Line Layout

    Layout Dept. designes lines finding the best compromise between operation rules, number of operators and customer space requirements.

    Conveyors design rules: Experience teaches

    Conveyors Dept. collected feedback from customer lines and redacted internal documents  that allow us to prevent mistakes and consider dynamic line working.

    Line Efficiency & Performance Simulation

    Collecting Data from the field

    From this informations Kosme can obtain all data we need to build the machine model: it’s important to filter data in relation with the topic we want to investigate.

    Line Efficiency 

    line efficiency prediction is a very complex problem that can be tackled with a simulation that can help in choosing the best combination of:
    - Line Efficiency & Performance Simulation
    - Buffer times
    that allow to obtain the greatest efficiency

    Thanks to the simulator, the line engineering team can more effectively predict solutions tailored to the customer.

    This tool is suitable for simulation of lines and equipments by preparing statistic models and developing detailed code that simulates the behavior of the machines (i.e. speed change and start- stop by sensor handling)

    Kosme can develope the conveyors and machines speed variations basing on sensors positioning and machines signal exchange to simulate the line operation as realistic as possible!

    This tool was often used to help designers for some issues that normally need tests, developing specific models with dedicated code.

    Energy saving & Sustainability focus

    - Optimized Production Cycles consultancy to our Customers through energy analysis tools 
    - Reuse, in the production cycle, of the energy produced by the heat itself (aim %)
    - Energy Recovery & Reutilization (water, steam, electricity)
    - Focus on Renewable Energy Sources
    - Chemical Free Approach for Equipment Sanitization (phosphorus-free, surfactant-free, EDTA-free, enzymatic detergent, 100% deep cleansing and BIOfilm removal).  This finally means also less energy consumption and more safety for the operators. 

    WE SUPPORT THE PRODUCTION REGIONALIZATION
    - Reduction on transportation impact is one of the biggest contribution (that) final producers can make to go toward sustainability.
    - Instead of large production sites, we support the development of local production to have a capillary distribution, use local resources and reduce environmental impact. 

    Feeding the world
    - Flexible sanitation systems, with the use of more environmentally friendly products such as enzymes (natural products), with the advantage of having less energy consumption and more safety for the operator

    Combating climate change
    - Design to optimize customers' production cycles in order to recover and reuse the various resources within their system such as water, steam and electricity
    - Design support for the use of renewable energy
    - Reduced footprint by using integrated Process and Integrated Process CIP

    New Solutions

    - with Kosme Line Solutions new opportunities open up for customers all over the world, as we are ready to give support to sellers to find the right solutions even in fields where Krones is not historically present such as liquid food or HPC.

    - Furthermore, Kosme has developed experiences in fields where it was not once present, such as in can lines, hot fill and returnable glass.

    Thanks to Line Solutions Kosme can finally supply the complete equipment for bottling lines starting from raw material to finished product
