A multi-packing solution for craft beer cans will be on show at a brewers' conference in Sydney next week.

The machine, called the G1, suits low-volume craft beer producers wanting to create multi-packs of four, six, or eight cans.

Manufacturer WaveGrip will be demonstrating the entry-level applicator at BrewCon 2018, to be held in Sydney next week, with local partner HBM Packaging Technologies.

The G1 uses automatic pack separation and accommodates a full range of can heights at speeds of up to 100 cans per minute.

The low entry cost and compact size of 1.4m x 0.8m suits mobile canning and craft beer producers.

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