Updated equipment for wider range of tests

CMC-Kuhnke has developed an updated Front End Station for semi-automated measurement of trimmed beverage cans. The FES-2000 unit is now able to measure top-wall thickness and mid-wall thickness, as well as measuring can height and dome depth. The system automatically rotates the can, and takes readings across the full circumference of the can, if required. Any...

Copper wire drives speed up three-piece welders

A new drive system for the copper wire used in Soudronic welders has been contributing to linear welding speeds of up to 140 metres per minute. Already in use on three-piece tinplate body lines, the Uniwire system, used in combination with double-height cans is enabling production speeds of 1,200 per minute. This, says Soudronic, means that half-kilo sizes can be...

More powerful fibre lasers for coding

A laser coding system that is better suited to application on high-speed canning lines has been launched by Linx Printing Technologies.Using fibre-optics connected to the marking head, the FSL range is more capable of coding difficult substrates than carbon-dioxide lasers, says Linx.The FSL fibre laser coders are offered in 20-watt and 50-watt versions, with the higher power enabling marking...

Precise D&I tooling measurement benefits front ends

A measurement system for bodymaker D&I tooling that is designed for the needs of the canmaking industry has been launched by US-based Integrated Packaging Solutions.ToolSCAN is an automated system that takes a longitudinal scan of the punch, providing a profile with accuracy and repeatability.Using non-contact LED micrometer technology, ToolSCAN measures the punch outside diameter, creates a scan. Die inside...

Laser trimming for increased efficiency

Non-contact trimming for the tops of aluminium cans using a laser is said by Hinterkopf to reduce process waste.The laser used in the L240 trimmer is expected to offer up to 50,000 hours of operation at full performance. There are no knives to replace or sharpen.Size-changes are quicker with the new machine with parameters entered on a touch screen....

Welder now compatible with calibration crowns

Swiss welder manufacturer Can Man has redesigned its CM16 series welding machine to be compatible with all types and sizes of calibration crowns from existing ABM Soudronic welders. The development will enable canmakers to reduce the initial installation cost of a CM16 welder, by allowing them to use the calibration crowns from their...

Labelling for low-volume canning lines

A shrink-film labelling process for cans developed by Avery Dennison is said to be suitable for a wide range of printing techniques.The AeroDress technology, designed for low-volume production, uses a self-adhesive labels printed with letterpress, flexo, gravure, as well as foils.A white filmic facestock shrinks to fit curves at the ends of a can to ensure a premium brand...

Equipment that forms lighter aerosol cans

Although manufacturers of tinplate aerosol cans have wanted to reduce the weight of their cans with thinner gauges of material, thereby reducing the costs, the lack of machines that were capable of processing them limited progress, says Germany’s Lanico Machinenbau.Since the launch last year of Lanico’s latest Can Former series, a 65mm-diameter 750ml aerosol can that was once made...

Tinplate rules with an invisible seam

The Adidas toiletries brand owned by Coty has switched back to using tinplate aerosol cans largely as a result of a canmaking design change that improves their appearance, making them look more like aluminium monobloc cans.Colep, which makes the cans for Adidas, recently launched DigiStripe, a technique that visually conceals the weld seam on three-piece aerosol can bodies. The...
