Celebrating success at Cannex

Following winning Gold at the recent Supplier Innovation Awards at CanTech The Grand Tour in Istanbul, Turkey, SLAC Precision Equipment company enjoyed another successful Cannex & Fillex exhibition from 1-3 May 2019 in Denver, Colorado.

The SLAC Group team were on hand to provide delegates information on the comprehensive equipment portfolio and especially the new Digital Printing mini-line and HexadTM Conversion Press. One of the highlights of the show was seeing the SLAC Equipment Portfolio as model designs on the stand, which attracted significant interest from delegates. The Stand had a model of a full can and end line.

SLAC’s mini-line concepts centers around SLAC’s new digital printer, which lowers the traditional volume threshold for DWI and opens up low-cost opportunities for annual volumes of 75M cans, many times less than the generally accepted minimum for conventional DWI. 

As well as the mini-line and digital printer, SLAC’s new Hexad conversion press for beverage end proved to be popular. The machine is on the ECH125 Minster Press but has a rated speed of 4,500 ends per minute compared to the traditional 3000epm. This gives  the same footprint as a four-out machine, but produces 50 per cent more volume. The press also has a metal utilisation saving of four and a half per cent due to the more efficient strip layout.

In the Canmaker Technical Conference, our board member Richard Moore was also able to provide an update on SLAC’S Mini-line concept: an industrial solution for digital printing. With Richard’s wealth of experience in a rich and long career, Richard was able to provide delegates information of the potential cost saving potential of the mini-line, and SLAC’s proposed Hive initiative, a project designed to move the industry towards true AI capability to reduce costs, improve on predictive maintenance as well as prepare for the lack of skill the industry is seeing grow year on year. 

There is still a limited time to preview the completed installation of a full Mini-Line in our Suzhou manufacturing unit. For more information, email:
