How it works
All CANCRAFT machines offer a linear solution to canning product. This means that the cans enter the processing conveyor from either the manual whale tail feed or an automated de-palletiser. While the cans are in a dry environment they are date coded underneath (if option selected).
The can then accumulate until move to the purge/fill head area. At this point the fill head manifold is lowered into the can and the fill sequence starts. Once filled, the cans quickly pass under the lid drop/placement station, where the lid is pressed onto the can and forces the crown of fob back into the can. This helps keep the DO levels as low as possible.
As the cans pass through to the seaming station, the tamp bar ensures that the lids stay nicely in place before being mechanically seamed to the can.
After that the can take a swift right turn through to our rinse tunnel and air knife (if option selected) to get rid of any left over sticky residue. Then on to the accumulation table for packaging.
Two full days training will be provided included in the installation costs. Further training sessions can be provided at extra cost and upon request.
