WEIMA’s E.200 Drainage Press Takes Center Stage at Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America

trade show 04.04.2023

The Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America in Nashville, Tennessee is about to get a taste of innovative technology that could change the way beverage producers deal with underfilled or out-of-spec product. WEIMA, a manufacturer of recycling and size reduction machinery, is showcasing its E.200 drainage press machine at this annual event.


Customized Size Reduction Machinery for Scrap and Recycling

The E.200 drainage press from WEIMA offers an efficient way to drain partially filled cans in one easy step, increasing quality control and decreasing waste.

The E.200 drainage press works by ejecting rejected cans directly into the machine's hopper, which punctures them so the contents can be drained into its collection bin. The machine can also be hand-fed if necessary, and all rejected cans are easily compressed into Ø200mm discs for convenient recycling.


The compressed discs of aluminum take up significantly less space than partially filled cans, maximizing valuable floor space between trips to the recycler and increasing the value of the aluminum due to its compressed form.

The machine comes on lockable casters, making it easy to install into existing operations and decreasing downtime. By eliminating the labor it takes to pour out underfilled or out-of-spec cans, employees can perform more meaningful and lucrative tasks.

Most importantly, it ensures that a beverage manufacturer has the utmost control over the quality of the product that goes to market, protecting and maintaining high standards that uphold a brand’s integrity with consumers.

WEIMA offers many machines for draining and compressing UBCs. Learn more about them!

For breweries and canning operations, WEIMA’s drainage press technology allows more time to focus on what matters most: sustainably creating a delicious, quality product.

Fiddlehead Brewing Co. is one of the many breweries within the U.S. that is utilizing drainage press technology to increase sustainability and quality control while saving space, money, and time.
