KRONES Botec F1

Process control system

User-friendly,
reliable and ground-breaking

Botec stands for "batch-oriented


technology", and has been in use in
the drinks industry and in other batch
processes for over 20 years. The latest
version, Botec F1, once again demonstrates the unmatched industry-specific adaptability of the system:
The Botec F1 process control system
automates complex production
processes. This enables you, as a
plant operator, to respond rapidly
and in a targeted way to market
changes. Despite its performance
capabilities, Botec F1 is highly reliable
in everyday production operations:
Once installed, the processes run at a
continuously high performance level.
And Botec F1 can also be easily linked
to higher-level systems.

Your benefits

n Born out of practice, for practice

krones is not merely a software


compiler. krones is more. We

have for decades been developing and building machines, lines


and complete plants for the drinks
industry.
The know-how and experience
gathered from those projects
flowed directly into the development of Botec F1. That is the only
way to create solutions which
provide practicable responses to
existing industry-specific needs.

n Open system

Botec F1 is tailored precisely to


your operational situation. As a
flexible system, it will grow with
your line and it can be expanded
and adapted to changed conditions at any time as required.

n Clearly structured, easy to use

Botec F1 brings a clearly defined


structure to your production
processes. The system is clearly
structured, features intuitive
operator control logic and is highly
user-friendly.

n Safety and transparency

By professionally automating your


production, you are sure to maintain both process and product
quality at a consistently high level.
Moreover, Botec F1 provides you
with all the information needed to
monitor the efficiency and quality
of your line.

n Standardised software design

Botec F1 is based on the


ANSI/ISA-88 and ANSI/ISA-95
international batch control standards, which are becoming more
and more important within the
drinks industry.

n Worldwide experience

As one of the leading automation


systems, Botec F1 is now operating on more than 1,500 lines
worldwide. Our comprehensive
project experience will pay off for
you primarily in the stability and
performance of the systems you
run as well as in short planning
and installation times.
