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 an induction oven?
The induction oven is used for drying the coating on the welding seam to protect the cans on corrosion. The oven is running on induction. In induction there are electric coils that generate a magnetic field, which heats the oven. The major advantage is that it is hardly any heat is lost.
Cazander Brothers regurlarly offer quality used Nordson induction ovens from their extensive stock.
