Summit Brewing: Packaging line success story
Summit Brewing addresses downtime issues on their packaging line
For over 30 years, St. Paul, MN based Summit Brewing Company (Summit) has been making craft beers inspired by old-world brewing traditions. Having created over 17 individual brews and earning multiple awards from the World Beer Cup® and the Great American Beer Festival®, Summit continues to set the standard for craft brewing. With an annual production capacity over 240,000 barrels a year, uptime and a reliable seal are critical elements for consistently delivering a quality product and achieving the company's desired profitability.
Graco installed the InvisiPac® Tank-Free Hot Melt System that includes revolutionary melting technology specifically designed to stabilise hot melt adhesive properties by eliminating thermal and oxidative degradation. The system reduced hot melt adhesive waste from constant tank scrapes and system cleaning as well as wasted boxes due to an inadequate seal.
