Technology used to engrave aluminium STELVIN® closures with high quality, precision artwork is transforming brands and attracting consumer attention.
Now, wine companies in North America can customise their closures with laser-engraving thanks to a partnership between global packaging leader Amcor – the manufacturer of Stelvin closures – and VinPerfect, a specialist closures company based in Napa, California, who developed the technology.
“Customers can further customise their products with high-quality laser engraving that really makes their bottles stand out on the shelf,” said Frederic Catteau, Regional Director of Amcor Capsules, North America.
“This decoration option is very attractive for customers of all sizes because there is no tooling set-up cost and lead times are short,” said Catteau.
Customers can request customised laser engraving on orders as low as 1,350 closures, which is a unique offering in the closures industry.
The engraving, which can be as small as fifty microns, delivers extremely detailed artwork on the closure top and is available on standard and custom-decorated Stelvin closures.
Amcor bought the laser engraving decoration technology from VinPerfect and has installed it at the company’s site in American Canyon, California.
