Here’s to a secure wrap for the craft beer industry!
The craft beer industry continues to grow in large cities and small hamlets across the area, and the key to growth in this market is getting these small-batch ales, lagers and IPAs into the hands of their consumers quickly. Signode has the industry in mind when it exhibited the Octopus 1717C automatic rotary arm load containment system at the 2018 Craft Brewers Conference to help the industry securely deliver these innovative products to consumers.

The ‘S’ stands for ‘secure’ and ‘savings’
The first consideration in any stretch wrapping operation is a secure load. Right after that comes the consideration of how much wrap material needed to secure the load. When the Octopus ring technology was developed more than 30 years ago, it addressed both issues in a compact and efficient form. The pallet stayed in place while the stretch wrap revolved around the load, tightly anchoring the pallet and reducing worker strain. As the technology has evolved, one of the key improvements has been the ‘S-style’ feed on the Octopus machines--from the cost-effective B-Series to the versatile C-Series to the high-speed, highly effective S-Series.

More than 30 years ago, the Octopus ring technology was introduced, and while the technology embraced packaging in a new way, the wrapping industry embraced the Octopus. As Corrugated Week launched Sept. 24-27 in Indianapolis, Muller LCS featured the latest generations of Octopus technology at Booth 407.

Corrugated boxes aren’t terribly sexy—unless your customer is counting on delivery of your products in one piece, on time and undamaged. That’s when boxes become the last critical link in your manufacturing supply chain.
