Can lids added with a single-turret machine

A single-turret can seaming machine has been launched for drinks manufacturers by Imeta.

The Autocan has been designed for easy changeover of any can size between 330ml and 500ml and has a production capacity of 3,600 cans per hour. It is also equipped with a single roll cover separator with an electro-pneumatic arresting knife.

Sales director Roberto Baroni says: “The idea was to supply a seaming turret that the filling manufacturers can insert into their monobloc lines. To guarantee a perfect seam at high speeds, both the seaming rolls and lower lifter are operated by mechanical cams.”

As an alternative, the machine can also be supplied in a stand-alone configuration, which includes a can feed table.
