Due South Brewing

"Once we installed the C-80 our packaging ran much smoother and it saved us a lot of labour at the end of the line. The difference is incredible!"

Mike Halker, Founder Due South Brewing Co.

Overview

WaveGrip’s C80 multi-packing applicator is helping Florida brewery, Due South Brewing Co. to pack its range of canned craft beer much more efficiently and cost-effectively.

Based just outside of West Palm Beach, Due South was the first full production craft brewery in South Florida and currently operates a 27,000 sqft brewery and taproom. Producing around 5000 barrels a year, with five core brands, Due South supplies bars, restaurants and retail locations across Florida.

 The Requirement

To meet a growing demand for cans, Due South needed to improve the multi-packing of its 16oz cans in both 4 and 6-pack configurations. Operating at a current speed of 35 cans per minute (cpm) it needed to fit within the limited space available and reduce manual labour needs.

The Solutions

The WaveGrip C-80

The C-80, with its compact footprint of just 1.4m x 0.8m / 55” x 31.5”, offered the perfect solution, being designed specifically for the needs of small to medium sized brewers and even mobile canning operations. The C-80 has enabled Due South to automate its packaging at an exceptionally affordable price point, moving away from the previously ‘labour intensive’ solution and with a predicted payback of just 10-11 months.

With is ability to run at speeds of 100 cpm it offers plenty of room for expansion, as Due South’s volume grows for its range of year-round and limited-edition beers.
