The highlights of this processing line include

The processing line also features integrated machines from KRONEN partners:

  • The recipe weighing belts from Synergy Systems enable dynamic weighing of the recipe components added along the processing line. They communicate with the weighing belt before the pre-washing machine, thus guaranteeing a controlled and uniform product flow for optimum end-product quality. The system additionally enables better planning of raw material use in relation to the desired output of the line.
  • When it comes to optimally removing foreign materials, the line also contains a knocking belt by HiTec for mechanical selection and an optical sorter from the company Optimum.


  • Continuous and gentle processing of high capacities
    The production line handles lettuce and leafy vegetables in a continuous process and therefore requires only a small number of staff. The communication between the machines and the visual displays for the machine operators help to facilitate a reliable, constant and uninterrupted production flow. This, in turn, ensures high processing capacities and maximum efficiency and quality in production.
