Canmaking

Canmaking is the process of making metal cans for the food and beverage industry. There are 2 types of metal cans. The first one is the 3-piece can which is made of an open ended cylinder, a side seam and two ends. Second, the 2-piece can with one closed-ended-seamless cylinder and one can end.

The typical process of making a 3-piece can consists of the following steps:

  • Cutting: of the coil into large sheets.
  • Coating: of the sheets with lacquer.
  • Drying: of the lacquer in a tunnel.
  • Slitting: of the large sheets into small sheets.
  • Welding: of the small sheets to form a cylinder.
  • Re-coating: of the weld with lacquer.
