Seamer changeovers said to be fastest yet

PneumaticScaleAngelus has launched an upgraded range of seaming machines said to offer the fastest can and end changeovers of any unit currently available.

The M-Series of seamers features a quick-change cap feed system which acts as a single change part, as well as a turret support column outside the discharge table.

These enable changeovers to be made in from one to two hours.The machines are constructed from 17-4 stainless alloys for durability, with cast iron components in areas which require thermal stability.

Hygiene is addressed with an automatic washing and sterilisation system, along with a stainless safety enclosure that is free from welds and seams to prevent the collection of contaminants.

Lubrication is provided by an improved oil recirculation system that reduces the lower overall operating temperature by using a continuous flow of oil from the upper turret. The system features an enclosed oil reservoir with temperature control to activate oil circulation during peaks of activity.

The M-Series includes four models for both food and beverage cans, featuring four, five, eight and 12 seaming stations and maximum output speeds between 400 and 1,800 cans a minute.
