      Benefits to you

      Double flexibility

      The Craftmate C is your specialist for can filling in the low output range and is also extremely versatile: It fills beer, carbonated beverages and wine in a range of can shapes and sizes.

      Innovative technology

      The electropneumatically-controlled filling valves work very reliably and thanks to the inductive flow meter, the fill quantity can be determined up to the point. Pressing-on and pressurisation of the cans is performed via a double-acting cylinder and a differential pressure chamber.

      Easy to clean

      An inclined table top and manually inserted CIP cups ensure easy machine cleaning.

      Compact design

      The product is fed to the machine via laterally-positioned buffer tanks and the valve manifold and control cabinet are right next to the filler. This way, the Craftmate C requires just a minimum of space in the bottling hall.

      Low transport costs

      Of course, these compact dimensions have plus factors when it comes to the transport: Since the entire machine can be placed in one sea freight container, the costs for shipment are accordingly low.
