For the top and bottom end processing, the spiral wound and cut to length can body is fed to a flanging machine. The flanger forms the open cut edge depending on the requirements for the final packaging:

  • bead / curl to the outside or inside for subsequent heat-sealing of an aluminum or plastic membrane
  • calibrating / widening the can for insertion of a deep-drawn membrane
  • flange to the outside for closing with a metal end

Various versions are available at Blema, depending on product dimensions and performance requirements.

Design and Function

fully automatic, continuous processing machine in turret design

  • product separation out of can accumulation on the conveyor with driven stop star and double transport screw
  • beading at the upper end of the can with heated or unheated die flanging tools
  • die flanging or calibrating at the lower end of the can
  • axial fixing of the cans by vacuum suction or mechanical ejection with segmented tools
  • safe discharge of the can bodies onto the discharge belt by means of a double screw
  • integrated camera control (optional)
  • rigid turret construction
  • cam-controlled lifter movements
  • automatic can height adjustment
  • quick tool change
  • safety enclosure with mechanical or magnetic safety switches
