Technical Presentation:


The Anheuser-Busch Fort Collins Brewery completed construction and start-up of a brand new packaging line in April. Can Line 64 features a dual filler design and is capable of running 8 oz sleek, 12 oz sleek and standard 12 oz cans, in addition to several secondary package configurations. The new line’s Business Process Manager, Ellen Beiting, and Process Engineer, Dustin Craft, will speak about how safety and quality were woven into the design of the line, as well as their efforts over the last year building and training their new team to run this very complex new line. KHS Project Manager Darin Bertsch will speak about KHS’s DVD filler technology, as well as the KHS integration design for the line. He will go into how they chose equipment from multiple vendors to achieve the desired performance capabilities of the line.


No outside beer will be allowed due to the Biergarten’s liquor license.
