Fiber-based consumer packaging company Graphic Packaging International has launched ClipCombo, a modular multipack system that offers beverage makers and packers the ability to apply two different clip-style packs with a single machine.
Along with the ability to switch between two pack styles in just minutes rather than hours, ClipCombo 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 versatility of ClipCombo could mean a 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.
