WEIMA is crushin’ it at BrewExpo 2022

Come say hello at
booth #3556!

Out-of-spec or underfilled cans happen in automated beverage canning lines-- it's just par for the course. Removing these cans from the production line prior to packing is an important part of quality control. But what happens to those rejects? The PUEHLER E.200 drainage press from WEIMA is a hands-off way to drain those cans, putting the control back in your hands. WEIMA will have this environmental and efficient machinery on display at the Craft Brewer's Conference/BrewExpo in booth #3556!


Hands-off drain and compress technology for automated beverage canning lines

The E.200 drainage press is the ideal solution for draining underfilled or out-of-spec product in one easy step. The rejected cans fall directly into the hopper of the machine, which punctures them so the contents can be drained into the machine's collection bin. The cans are simultaneously compressed into frisbee-shaped discs for convenient recycling.

Maximize your workforce and minimize your waste with drain and compress technology

Automated canning lines are designed to reject out-of-spec product to keep underfilled or improperly sealed cans from going to market. These rejected cans are often drained of their liquid contents by hand and tossed into a recycling bin, which takes a lot of time and space. Adding the E.200 frees up those employees to do other, more lucrative tasks within the facility!

The PUEHLER E-Series machines collect rejected product in an enclosed hopper and compress the aluminum cans, allowing the liquid to drain. The compacted aluminum discs are discharged via a chute for convenient storage and easy recycling.

The hopper of the WEIMA drainage press can be hand-fed or batch-fed.

The E-Series drainage presses can be hand-fed or hopper-fed.

The contents of the out-of-spec cans are drained from the machine and into a floor drain within the facility.

Compressed aluminum cans are easy to recycle.

Compress your waste, save some space!

Floor space is precious in production facilities and brewhouses-- don't waste it on gaylords of empty aluminum cans waiting to be sent to a recycler. Compress them into discs for a space-saving storage solution and/or recycle more at once.

This is just another way brewing companies and canning lines can maximize ROI with drain-and-compress technology.
