Tremendous flexibility

There are various closure options for the bottles, from screw top and cork to crown cap. The line can also handle three different types of packaging: crate, cardboard box and stretch wrap.

Preferred brands

Konings chose its own mix of existing and new machines. We integrated all components into a perfect layout for the countless packaging combinations.

Full control

Konings now has complete control over its new line and, thanks to the open source software, can easily and quickly switch to new production configurations.
