Fruit Logistica 2024: Welcome to KRONEN!

Be a part of it – Enjoy live demonstrations of new products and KRONEN classics in full product-processing operation. We look forward to seeing you there!

We’re not going to reveal all the new products we will be showcasing at the Fruit Logistica 2024 in Berlin in advance. In fact, one world premiere will not be uncovered until its launch at the KRONEN booth on February 7, the first day of the trade show. That said, we have decided to provide you with a sneak peek at the following premieres right now: 

Pit, halve and peel avocados reliably, hygienically and efficiently

The Robot Avocado Line will be presented at a show for the first time at the event. The system uses one or more robots to perform the individual processing steps of pitting, halving and peeling avocados in a fully automated procedure. The line can also be optionally extended by adding solutions such as the GS 10-2 belt cutting machine to further process the avocados by cutting them into chunks or slices.

The number of robots can be adjusted to increase or decrease capacity as required, with one robot able to process up to 400 avocados per hour, two robots processing up to 800 avocados per hour and three robots handling up to 1,000 avocados per  hour. Furthermore, a wide variety of additions can also be introduced to further extend the line. 

Bite-sized chunks of melon: cut cleanly in a flash

The MMC 150 melon chunk cutter is a brand-new innovation that will be showcased in Berlin. This manual melon chunk cutter enables you to cut fresh melon into bite-size chunks in a quick and easy process. The MMC 150 can cut melons up to 150 mm in diameter and up to 200 mm long. Beforehand, the melon needs to be peeled, halved and deseeded. The machine comes with a dividing insert for six and eight segments.

It is a tabletop device able to process up to 360 melons per hour. For fruit processors, the MMC 150 represents the perfect addition to the MPC 100 manual pineapple chunk cutter, which was first presented in 2023.

Tailor-made machines for lettuce, fruit and vegetable processing

In addition to its innovations, KRONEN will also yet again demonstrate a multitude of well-established machines live and in full product-processing operation at this year’s Fruit Logistica. At the event, the KRONEN booth will be run by an international team together with KRONEN representatives, providing support and advice for interested visitors from all over the globe.
