Tongue Welder

...

High precision, maximum operational safety combined with economic use of raw materials and energy, and minimal reject rates.

The welding bodymaker STW is the heart of a three-piece can production line with traditional tongue opening system. On an off-line press a tab will be manufactured and via coil transferred to the first section of the welder. There the body blanks will be scored for the opening system and the tab will be welded to the flat body blank. In the rollformer station the body blanks are formed into their basic shape and resistance welded. The STW welding bodymaker is manufactured in our Swiss plant in Bergdietikon.

Inline Stretch Former

...

The inline stretch former for irregular cans shapes welded bodies into prismatic or oblong canbodies.

The cylindrical canbody blanks are conveyed from the welder to the stretch former without affecting the seam position. During the stretch-forming operation, the metal is stressed beyond its elastic limits in order to produce flat, rigid panels. The expansion tool adjusts easily to match the canbody size perfectly..

Flanging-seaming machines

...

Bodyformers for irregulary shaped cans are very compact reliable and offer superior efficiency.

The bodyformer is installed next to the inline stretch former. It performs all the necessary flanging and seaming operations on the prismatic or oblong canbodies. In order to obtain a good flange quality, the flanging is carried out by means of a squeeze flanger.
