EnviroClip employs equipment with a small footprint that can run at a range of speeds from manual application to high-speed automation. It can also be used alongside KeelClip for customers who want to employ different pack formats depending on production quantities or because they have a multi-tiered product strategy. The solution can be used for both 12-oz (330ml) and 16-oz (500ml) standard cans in four- and six-pack configurations. Graphic Packag- ing’s high-speed equipment features a proprietary custom overhead clipping system which delivers consistent appli- cation of the EnviroClip ring to the cans. The cans remain easy to detach at the point of con- sumption while the overall pack design features finger holes to ensure easy and comfortable carrying. “Since its introduction, KeelClip has gained internation- al recognition for its performance and the role it is continu- ing to play in reducing hard-to-recycle plastic waste,” said Steve Gould, Graphic Packaging’s Director, Business De- velopment. “EnviroClip builds on the same expertise and innovation, providing an expanded portfolio that makes it possible to meet our customers’ different needs.”
