Danvers, Mass. – September 8, 2021 – Global printing industry leader Inkcups will be showcasing the most recent addition to the Helix® line of products, the Double Helix®, at this year’s Craft Brewers Conference®. Recognized as America’s largest craft brewing industry gathering, the event will take place September 10-12, 2021, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado. Inkcups will be located at booth #4302.
Featuring the Double Helix®, the Inkcups booth will be printing on giveaway items during the event including bar pint glasses and beer cans. Launched earlier this year, the Double Helix® is a UV cylindrical printer featuring two side-by-side print stations that can simultaneously print the same artwork onto two of the same vessels for double the printing volume.
Fast and flexible just like the flagship Helix®, the Double Helix® can print full-color seamless graphics at around 6 to 8 parts per minute depending on artwork size. For that reason, this machine is best suited for industries where production runs are medium to higher-volume print runs, which typically include craft brew (including cans and bottles), barware, drinkware, spirits, and many other industrial cylinder printing applications. In these fields, typical end products include high quality graphics on pint glasses, beer cans, wine and spirit bottles, sports bottles, stainless steel tumblers, and more.
The Double Helix® is compatible with Inkcups’ full line-up of UV digital ink. With a printable area of 8.6 inches, this machine can print on items up to 12 inches in length with a diameter of 2-5 inches using design techniques such as spot varnish, tip-to-tip printing, mirror print, contour print and more.
The Craft Brewers Conference is the only industry event that serves both on-premise breweries—brewpubs and taprooms—and packaging breweries. It is an annual show that travels to different cities each year. It is also presented by the Brewers Association, a recognized leader in the national and international brewing arena.Back to Blog Home
