How cans are made
Cans for food, drinks and non-food products may be constructed out of either two or three pieces of metal.
The first cans ever produced were three-piece and they were developed in the middle of the 19th century. They consist of a cylindrical body rolled from a piece of flat metal with a longitudinal seam, usually formed by welding, with a top and bottom, each seamed on the ends of the body.
Three-piece cans may be manufactured in almost any practical combination of height, diameter and shape. This process is particularly suitable for making cans of different sizes as it is relatively simple to change the parameters of the can under production.
The Cazander Brothers mainly have machinery for three-piece cans in stock.
What is a transfer press?
A transfer press is designed to produce aerosol top ends, spray lids and threaded oil ends. It can be built for single lane or double lanes depending on the end size. A cone top is fitted to the top of the can to accept the valve/spray mechanism which is fitted after filling with product. A domed end is fitted to the can base to withstand the internal pressure.
Cazander Brothers regularly offers quality used Naroska transfer presses from their extensive stock.
