For some years now Soudronic has championed the claim of steel tinplate to be one of the most economical, environment-friendly and sustainable forms of packaging available to manufacturers today. And there is no shortage of reasons. First and foremost is the fact that metal cans today require far less raw material than in the past. Soudronic leads the way in the development of the advanced canmaking machines needed to work with downgauged tinplate, i.e. sheet metal stock of as little as 0.1 mm in thickness. Lighter cans mean more containers per ton of tinplate, savings on natural resources and, overall, a significant reduction in the world’s carbon emissions footprint.
