Cyclone C4+ with Tonejet Can Primer digital decoration system installed at Solucan.

Tonejet, manufacturer of advanced electro-static drop-on-demand digital print engines, installs a new Cyclone C4+ with Tonejet Can Primer digital decoration system at Solucan, Que.

As the world’s first customer for Tonejet’s Cyclone C4 direct-to-pack digital beverage can printer, in 2019, the Quebec can printing specialist revolutionized the Canadian market for production of high quality, cost effective can printing with no minimum run length. The addition of the new Tonejet Cyclone C4+, used for decoration of can formats up to 16 oz, will support huge demand from local craft brewers and beverage producers for 100 per cent recyclable direct printed cans in short runs. Solucan’s second-generation Cyclone also includes a host of new features including a bright white-primer providing stand out colour contrast on either brite or white blank cans from any source.

Sebastien Baril, president at Solucan, said, “Market reaction to our Tonejet technology has been phenomenal. Customers routinely tell us how affordable and sustainable it is to produce cans in short runs, featuring stunning print quality and full personalized/variable data. This technology is transforming their businesses and driving growth. The second Tonejet production line has provided everything we were looking for – can format flexibility as well as the ability to increase our overall capacity.”


Rob Day, CEO at Tonejet, said, “We are so pleased to have the new Cyclone C4+ at Solucan, and to see their business continue to grow in both volume and variety. The upgrades provided with our new Cyclone C4+ enable Sebastien and his team to produce top quality cans in 12- and 16-oz formats simultaneously, increasing efficiency and productivity – truly game changing. We believe that the Cyclone system is the future of can printing, and we are excited to see how it will transform the beverage industry in years to come.”
