ETA I Embomax

ETA I/III - Embomax®


Welded can bodies are de- or embossed on the ETA embossing machine.

  • up to 50 cpm per station for high or low embossing of 2- and 3-part cans
  • up to 12 workstations on a turret
  • exact alignment of the embossing to the decoration (+/- 0.1 mm)

Design and Function

can infeed

  • servo-driven stop star allows selective switching on and off of stations in the event of maintenance or for simple generation of test series during ongoing operation
  • servo infeed screw

positioning and embossing

  • secure clamping of the can body in the lower clamping station
  • embossing mark recognition by means of optical sensor
  • aligning the can body to the embossing tool with high-speed servomotors (on each station)
  • embossing during a single revolution
  • gently unclamping the can and ejection from the station

can outlet

  • pneumatic ejection of incorrectly embossed cans
  • integration of a video inspection system (optional)

Please note that the technical data provided in this table is to be understood as typical or maximum data but not as a property guarantee. The maximum values depend strongly on product specification (material, dimensions, tolerances etc.) and technologies employed. The final technical data for the application will be assessed after review of product specifications. Especially on this machine type, the final de-/embossing design has a strong influence on feasibility, output and max. can height.

Format Change

Fast format change for tooling stations

  • pre-set tooling stations
  • embossing design change outside of machine possible
  • swivelling device for safe removal of embossing heads from the machine
  • timesaving height adjustment via spacers
