AutoClip™ GC1600

The AutoClip™ GC1600 is an integrated high-speed machinery solution that applies the GripClip™ clip-style carton to multipacks of beverage cans. 

The AutoClip GC1600 can also be used in combination with our ClipCombo™ technology that offers beverage makers the ability to run multiple fiber-based multipack styles across the same machine, delivering real value and flexibility to meet today’s and tomorrow’s needs. 

GripClip is part of our clip portfolio and is an alternative to plastic rings and shrink film. GripClip uses less materials (board and glue) than our premium clips, while still offering merchandising benefits such as high-quality graphics and a comfortable carry experience. 

This packaging machine works on all can diameters and heights and is available for multiple pack configurations.
