Tin Can Production Line
Making a tin can entails a series of process that integrates to ensure the final product is apt and timely. A can making machine delivers cans of various shapes, sizes and can be adjusted to meet your preferences. There are various can shape including the round, rectangular, square and other irregular shapes that suit your customized necessities.
There are various production lines available, these include rectangular car line, round car line, mints car line and irregular can line. In rectangular can line for instance, can maker machines incorporated include can body machine, slitting machine, beading machine, top curling machine, necking machine, seaming machine, flanging machine, bottom making machine and lid making the machine.
Can Production Line
In the production of tin cans, various processes are followed before obtaining the final product. These steps are distinctive, and with the help of multiple machines, this process is made simpler and production of cans increases at the same time.
Production of tin can begins with the slitting or shearing machine. A tin plate is a raw material, and the slitting machine precisely cuts this plate into blanks. The blanks obtained should be of desired width and lengths so that it can be fabricated later into a single body with a lid and bottom. Shearing process can be done manually, or it can be fully automated. The main types of slitting machines that can be effectively utilized in this process include manual, semi-automatic, and full automatic shearing/slitting machine.
Can Body Maker Machine
In this step, several processes are incorporated at the same time. This car maker machine has been entirely programmed and produces many finished tin can bodies at a short time. The manufacturing process incorporated in this step includes notching, making a grove, locking, forming and pre-curling. The body making process should be fully automated to cut down the production cost. Also, this machine can be adjusted to produce various body shapes and sizes.
Top Curling Machine
This machine curls the top of the tin can. This will make the can to have the desired shape with a specific depression. When this machine is incorporated, a fine rim will be obtained at the top.
This machine typically reduces and lessens the diameter of the can’s top. It constricts the top to be narrow compared to the rest of the can body. This machine will also improve the appearance of the can.
A beading machine is generally responsible for instilling a unique series of bulges and depressions. The beading process will furnish the can and improves its quality.
A flanging machine is designed to flange the bottom and top ends of the tin can. When using this machine, the bottom and top are appended.
A seaming machine will join the body and the bottom of the can. This can be done either through single or double seaming.
Lid Making Machine
This process deals with edge curling, punching of the blanks and trimming. A lid will be produced that is ideal for the size, shape, and design of the can.
Bottom Making Machine
When making the bottom of the can, bottom sections are obtained by punching the blank slits and then seamed at the lower end to get a tin can.
