G3 Enterprises Announces Expanded Closure Options
G3 Enterprises has announced the latest printing technology and new design capabilities added to its long-skirt aluminum screw cap product portfolio.
G3 Closure Division offers a variety of design options for its ROYAL 90® product line:
ROYAL 90® Standard
- Single color
- Top printed
- Top and side printed
ROYAL 90® Performa
- Top and side printed
ROYAL 90® Performa Plus
- Torque-on (special bottling equipment required)
Under the ROYAL 90® Performa design option, distortion printing enables G3 to offer customers a lower cost alternative to traditional top and side printed caps.
“At G3 Enterprises, we constantly strive to offer our customers cost-effective alternatives. Closures have been an integral product offering for over 50 years,” said Robert Lubeck, CEO and President, G3 Enterprises. “The addition of the ROYAL 90® Performa option is an example of our constant pursuit of creative solutions to meet the customer’s needs. This option gives brands a competitive closure choice with greater design flexibility.”
Distortion printing starts with a flat sheet of aluminum upon which the top and side printed images are applied. This technique utilizes high-quality computer assisted lithography. As the flat metal sheet is formed into the dimensions of the final cap, the desired side image is created. This single-step printing process allows for more flexibility in package design, saves considerable printing time and is generally more cost-effective than traditional methods.
G3 Enterprises introduced its ROYAL 90® aluminum screw cap in response to increasing customer demand for a reliable alternative to cork closures. G3 produces these caps at their plant located in Modesto, California. In addition to adding distortion printing capabilities under the Performa design option, G3 will increase ROYAL 90® production capacity in early 2011 with the addition of new state-of-the-art printing equipment.
A smooth finish (no-knurl) option providing a refined look and additional space for decoration is also available for ROYAL 90® Standard and Performa. Applied with standard ROPP bottling equipment, no expensive line change parts are required. The G3 smooth finish cap is easy to use and cost effective.
