Packaging Machinery System Development Graphic Packaging at drinktec, Munich, Hall A4, Stand 319 Fiber-based consumer packaging leader, Graphic Packaging International is set to launch its latest machinery system innovation, ClipCombo, at this year’s drinktec. ClipCombo combines multiple packaging solutions over a modular machinery system, an innovation that will be eagerly welcomed by the world’s leading beverage manufacturers, as the market increasingly leans towards optimized, fiber-based packaging solutions. A new and highly innovative machinery approach to beverage packaging, ClipCombo offers producers the ability to run multiple fiber-based multipack styles across the same machine. The concept will deliver real value and flexibility, meeting today’s and tomorrow’s needs. Machine options are available for either cans or PET bottles, offering multiple combinations, including: • Multi award-winning KeelClip plus EnviroClip fiberbased clips for can multipacksGripClip plus EnviroClip fiber-based clips for can multipacksCap-It plus EnviroClip fiber-based clips for PET bottle multipacks • Boasting high speeds of up to 400 packs per minute (dependent on application) and rapid changeovers as part of an impressive list of benefits, ClipCombo enables customers to differentiate between brands and position premium or standard options. Doug Hicks, vice president of the packaging machinery division at Graphic Packaging, looked ahead to the unveiling, saying, “We know many of our customers take their sustainability goals seriously, as do we. We also know that markets change and there is a need to future-proof machine system choices. That’s why we’re delighted to reveal the ClipCombo concept, a game-changing machinery philosophy that enables customers to select from a wide range of existing and new packaging options as well as container and configuration choices. Packers can combine products over a single machinery system, and be confident they have the options needed as the market evolves. “ClipCombo is the ultimate solution to optimize multipack throughput,” continued Hicks. “It gives producers the flexibility to run premium and standard pack styles on the same machine and switch between them quickly and efficiently. At a time when labor and space come at a premium, this approach reduces the need for both.” In addition, ClipCombo technology promises to lower capital investment for beverage packers, as the ability to deliver multiple pack styles with rapid changeover eliminates the need for several installs. This frees up space on the factory floor and reduces the number of operators required. This new approach to machine system development will allow Graphic Packaging to add to their incredibly successful clipstyle packaging range and further help customers eliminate plastic rings and shrink wrap across their product range. Hicks added, “ClipCombo further increases the speed, scale and flexibility of our clip-style multipack solutions. The modern market demands sustainable packaging, flexibility and quality, and ClipCombo delivers. We believe it’s the perfect machine solution for the current and future needs of our beverage customers, and we can’t wait to welcome them to our booth to demonstrate the benefits.” The company will also be showing its full range of multipack solutions for the beverage industry, including clips, wraps, fully enclosed and basket carrier cartons, in addition to the sustainable fiber-based container for dry mixes, Boardio®. 46
