Production is becoming SMART: Transparency for more efficiency

With SMART Machines KRONEN presents a range of machines able to communicate.

SMART Machines or a SMART Factory cann transfer machine statuses to the KRONEN Database in real time. This enables production managers, technicians or foremen to monitor the production status of a machine or line on their laptop or mobile device from any location and at any time.

The data collected helps to make production processes even more transparent and efficient, for example with regard to productivity, flexibility, quality and safety.

The KRONEN SCADA system sends instructions to the SMART Machines. This facilitates predictive maintenance, thus allowing you to combat potential breakdowns and production downtime.

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

    The data are sent to the KRONEN ddatabase for analysis. You can access them from any location andd at any time: via your PC or mobile device (Android and iOS). An in-house solution can also be implemented as an alternative option.

  • Quality
    The control of knife speed and belt speed as well as of the blade‘s grinding intervals supports a continuously high product quality.
  • 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

    Tool recognition helps to optimise production activities. Parameterisation with the KRONEN SCADA system enables recipes and machine programmes to be stored and communicated to the machines.

  • SMART Machines - modular
    The basic module and the machine hardware of today can be upgraded by the software solutions and SMART options of tomorrow - at any time.
  • Security

    The data are stored on servers in Germany and the Netherlands in data centres certified in accordance with the security standard DIN ISO 27001 and in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation of the EU and therefore guarantee maximum security standards. You can also choose to store the data on a local server in your own data centre or directly on the machine (on-premises).
