Posted by Chela Mancuso

If you own a craft brewery, work at a bottle shop, or have the need to increase can labeling without doubling the cost to do so, utilizing an automated can labeling machine is the right option for you! The craft beer industry is booming, and with it, there is a need to have colorful, flashy, and eye-catching can labels that stand apart from the rest of the competition on shelves. However, applying a label to a craft beer can or bottle might sound daunting. With equipment like the ASL-100 or ASL-300 from AMAC Technologies, gone are the days of manually applying labels to cans which eat up overhead production costs, time, and valuable employee labor. By utilizing equipment like the ASL-100 or ASL-300, your craft brewery or bottle shop can decrease production time dramatically while still having a cost-efficient and effective way to create unique and showstopping can labels. Whether you are looking to scale an existing operation or begin labeling your own craft beer cans and bottles in-house, there is an option for you. AMAC Technologies is dedicated to helping our customers discover what machinery is right for their operation and our team works tirelessly to make sure that our customer’s satisfaction is their top priority. 


No matter what the size of your operation is, there are a variety of benefits to using an automated can labeling machine instead of attempting to hand label craft beer cans or bottles. AMAC Technologies’ equipment is both best-in-class and highly affordable, and there are a variety of options available that fit the individual needs of all of our customers. The benefits of using machinery like an automated can-labeling machine include:

  • Reliability. These machines are incredibly intuitive and user-friendly. They are easy to understand and easily automated, and in addition, they are built with durable and reliable materials like sturdy stainless steel. They are also compact and have a small footprint which makes them a great choice for any production facility, no matter the size. 
  • Speed. Automated can labeling machines can label cans or bottles at a speed of up to 300bpm, or slower depending on what type of production is necessary. They can dramatically increase production speeds and make for an overall quicker turnaround on product output. 
  • Cost efficiency. Overall, an automated can labeling machine is one of the best ways to cut down on overhead labor costs. With easy-to-use and intuitive machinery, everything during the production process is hands-free and does not rely on employee intervention. Additionally, these machines can switch seamlessly between different products without the need for a manual switch to take place. 
  • Versatility. As mentioned, these machines are incredibly versatile and have the ability to switch over products hands-free. They also can work with a wide variety of products including packaging for multi-pack or twin-pack products, and with products that need shrink sleeve labeling or tamper-evident neck banding. 

Overall, utilizing an automated process like the ASL-100 or ASL-300 will directly benefit craft breweries or bottle shops in the long run with increased production speeds and reduced overhead labor costs!
