SMART Machines

Industry 4.0 for the Fresh-cut sector

With SMART Machines KRONEN presents web-enabled machines.

SMART Production:
SMART Machines or an entire SMART Factory can transfer machines‘ statuses into the KRONEN Cloud in real-time. The production manager, technician or the foreman can monitor the production status of the machine or line on their laptop or mobile device from any location and at any time.

Transparency and Efficiency:
The collected data helps to make production processes more efficient, for example in regards to productivity, flexibility, quality and safety. By implementing predictive maintenance you can prevent possible breakdowns.

Future is flexible:
The KRONEN SMART solutions are modular: We offer a basic module. Beyond, the SMART Machines are individually adapted to the specific needs of the customers and the performance range can be expanded continuously throughout the future.

Currently the following machines are available as a SMART basic module:

Beyond, just tell us what you need: We develop individual, tailor-made solutions for you!

We realize Industry 4.0 solutions for the Fresh-cut sector and can show you how SMART applications work in Fresh-cut.


  • Real-time inspection
    Real-time inspection
    Data is send to the KRONEN Cloud for analysis. The user can access it from any location and at any time, for example with a PC or a mobile device (Android and iOS).
  • Quality
    The control of knife speed and belt speed as well as of the blade‘s grinding intervals supports a continuously high product quality.
  • Security
    The data is stored at a server in Germany, in a datacenter certified by security standard DIN ISO 27001 and according to EU Data Protection Regulation and to the German Data Protection Act. They will not be passed on to any third party.
  • Process reliability
    Process reliability
    The single production steps alongside the value chain can be monitored and efficiency can be increased. By using predictive maintenance possible breakdowns can be prevented in the future.
  • Productivity
    Due to tool recognition the production can be optimized.
