The Twin Monkeys family of canners

Our tailored engineering solutions include not only a suite of can fill-and-seam machines, but an integrated canning line complete with all the automation necessary to get your beverages into the coolers, fridges, and backpacks of your customers in what is fast becoming the worlds’ preferred package:  an infinitely-recyclable aluminum can.

Our technical sales monkeys and our expert automation engineers will ensure you find the canning solution that works best for your operations at each phase of your growth plan.  The heart of a canning line is the filler/seamer. We have many models to choose from which integrate with auxiliary equipment to create a full canning line.  Contact Twin Monkeys and we can help you put together the right canning solution for your business.

Be sure to check out the Top 10 Questions our customers ask when they are planning for their new beer canning machine. They’re probably the same questions you are asking if you are planning on canning beverages in the near future.

The Gunnison

Smallest footprint, weight check and automated fill level adjustment option.

The Yampa

Tabletop canner with loads of options.  Lowest cost option.  Uses the same premium components as all Twin Monkeys canners.

The Rio Grande

Single-lane canner with compact footprint.  Can fit sideways into a box truck on a lift gate.  Option to weigh/reject cans and to auto-adjust fill parameters.

The Animas

Dual-lane expandable canner.  Excellent for those who may want double the speed without double the cost.

The San Juan

Dual-lane canner, fastest Twin Monkeys system.  Start with this model or start with the Animas and later upgrade in the field.

Roaring Fork

Dual-lane compact canner as fast as the Rio Grande . . . but smaller.  It can fit sideways in a box truck (for you mobile canning folks).  The Rinse/Dry Module lives on a separate conveyor that can easily configure to inline, left-turn, or right-turn for various configurations.

Big Thompson

A semi-automated tabletop Crowler canner that can put away over 12 cans/minute and uses the same oxygen-prevention measures that other Twin Monkeys lines employ.  You may now can with your cellar staff instead of your bar staff AND increase Crowler shelf life.
