Celebrating a Birdy at Asia CanTech

Thailand’s Next Can Innovation scooped the coveted Supreme Can Maker award at this year’s Asia CanTech in Bangkok, Thailand.

The Asia CanTech Awards, which took place on 31 October 2017 at the Royal Orchid Sheraton Hotel & Towers, saw Next Can collect the Beverage Two-Piece award and the Supreme Can Maker award for its Birdy can.

According to the judging panel, which was made up of a number of metal packaging experts, concluded that the Birdy two-piece beverage can, which is a slim, 180ml PET laminated – Tulc can, was a worthy winner due to decorator used which provided high printing quality by using the technology of Waterless Printing technology (with resolutions of 250lpi). This lead to graphic designs, which represent attractive details of customer product requirements.
