Wavegrip showcases entry level solutions for craft brewers

Manufacturer of the innovative multi-packing solution, WaveGrip will be showcasing its latest entry level applicator as part of the Palmer Canning Systems stand at this year’s Craft Brewers Conference, Nashville TN.

Perfect for low volume producers the G1 Auto can create multi-packs of 4, 6 or 8 cans, with automatic pack separation and accommodates a full range of can heights at speeds of up to 100 cans per minute.

The low entry cost of just $18,000.

Compatible with all WaveGrip carriers the G1 uses the standard WaveGrip reels, which can pack over 3000 6-packs, and allows a run time of five hours at 60cpm or three hours at 100cpm.

As the leading can filling and seaming systems provider, Palmer Canning is producing the G1 and G2 variants of the WaveGrip applicator in the US. Alongside the G1, Palmer Canning will be launching their latest canning system, CraftInLine, an In-line counter pressure can filler with ProPurge valve technology.

The CraftInLine offers speeds of 25 cpm based on a 12-oz. can size. By using a 5-head filler with ProPurge valves provides a true purge to atmosphere for unagitated fills and low oxygen pick up.

The small foot print of 84” x 36” x 84” makes it ideal for craft brewers while a version including a split frame for easy take down makes it the perfect choice for mobile canners.

“With such huge growth among craft brewers across the US, CBC is the perfect place to demonstrate our solutions for those smaller brewers. The G1 Auto is designed with lower canning volume brewers in mind; those who want to be able to enter the market with a competitive edge," comments Aaron McIvor, Managing Director, WaveGrip.
