AutoClip™ KC1600

Based on the highly efficient product-pitched Marksman™ 1600 product line, the AutoClip™ KC1600 is a high-speed system that applies that KeelClip™ premium clip-style fastener to multipacks of two-piece beverage cans. 

KeelClip replaces plastic rings and shrink film and offers merchandising benefits that other similar beverage packaging can’t, including can orientation and maximum billboarding space. 

The AutoClip KC1600 machine is highly flexible and can accommodate all sizes of beverage cans. 

When used in combination with ClipCombo™ technology, beverage makers can run multiple fiber-based multipack styles across the same machine, delivering real value and flexibility to meet today’s and tomorrow’s needs.
