Combi Offers Solutions Tailored to Craft Brewers03/07/2016
Canton, OH After closely following the explosive growth in the craft brewery industry, Combi has designed a packaging machine that will allow brewers to maintain their hand craftsmanship while reducing labor costs and increasing throughput associated with getting their product to distributors and retail shelves.
"We took the time to interview brewers from around the country and listened to their pain points. One of the most tedious tasks for the brewers is hand erecting their four and six pack carriers and the master shipping cases. This requires a large amount of labor and a large amount of space when most facilities are filled with processing equipment. In line with our focus on industry specific solutions, we have developed a multi-functioning machine that erects 4 and 6 pack carriers; erects the RSC master case; then case packs the carriers, creating a bottle ready case.” said John Fisher, CEO and President of Combi Packaging Systems LLC.
See the BrewPack in operation in booth 535 at the BrewExpo America in Philadelphia May 4-6, or go to www.combi.com/brew. Also on display will be the Ergopack® ergonomic hand packing station customized with a six pack carrier dispenser and recirculating conveyor for semi-automatic bottle case packing. Both levels of automation will enhance productivity on bottle case packing lines.
