Fiber-based consumer packaging leader, Graphic Packaging International (‘Graphic Packaging’), has launched ClipCombo™, a highly innovative beverage multipack machinery system.
This modular system offers beverage makers and packers the ability to apply two different clip-style packs with a single machine, optimizing production efficiency and enabling the differentiation of brands using premium and standard clip styles.
ClipCombo offers unparalleled flexibility. Along with the ability to switch between two pack styles in just minutes rather than hours, it can achieve top-line speeds of up to 400 packs per minute, depending on application and configuration.
ClipCombo has machine options that apply to either can or PET bottle multipacks. ClipCombo for cans combines award-winning KeelClip™ or GripClip™ with the minimal material EnviroClip™, while for PET bottles, it combines Cap-It™ and EnviroClip™.
The innovation was hailed by Doug Hicks, vice president of the packaging machinery division at Graphic Packaging, who said, “Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at Graphic Packaging. As the speed of change moves ever faster, developing effective solutions that address our customers’ needs of today – and those of tomorrow – is critical to our combined success in reducing the reliance on plastic for a more sustainable future.”
The versatility of ClipCombo will help lower capital investment for beverage packers, as the ability to deliver multiple pack styles with rapid changeover removes the need for several installs. This frees up space on the factory floor and reduces the number of operators required.
Hicks added, “ClipCombo increases the speed, scale, and flexibility of our clip-style packaging solutions to meet the needs of today’s sustainability-driven market, and ensures our customers have the versatility they need.”
ClipCombo will be on display at Graphic Packaging’s booth #319 in Hall A at Munich’s drinktec exhibition, held between September 12 – 16.
