Are you packaging your craft beers in cans – or maybe thinking of switching to this package type?
A lot of small breweries have already done this and are finding that printed cans are expensive, sometimes hard to source and produce a lot of inventory to manage. With craft brewers introducing new products all the time, this can become a headache quickly.
Axon, part of Pro Mach’s Primary Packaging business group, offers an elegant solution – just purchase blank, unprinted cans and apply full-color shrink sleeve labels, right at the time of packaging.
Axon’s EZ-100 is one of a range of shrink sleeve labelers that are installed in many applications, from low volume operations to huge consumer product brands. See the system in action in this video:
Pro Mach companies offer many ways to help with your small brewery packaging – labeling and coding systems from ID Technology, as well as case & tray packaging and pallet systems from Pro Mach End of Line Group, are good examples.
Are you planning to visit The Craft Brewers Conference in Philadelphia May 3-6? You’ll be able to see the Axon EZ-100 at Booth 1549 as well as coding and labeling systems for both cans and bottles at ID Technology in Booth 3910.
