INOX 420VG Installed in Doha

An INOX 420VG four head vacuum and gassing linear seamer has been installed and commissioned in Doha. The customer is expanding into the canning market having successfully produced dry snacks in flexible packaging at their Sweden plant since 2003.

Following meetings in Sweden, Eurocan Sales & Service Ltd proposed an INOX 420VG linear seamer as the applicable solution to fulfill the vacuum and gassing requirements for a modified atmosphere with low residual oxygen, while providing a capacity of up to 40 cans per minute.

On the completion of the manufacturing and assembly phase, the seamer was shipped by sea to Doha loaded and secured in a 20′ shipping container. Our packing and loading professionals ensured the machine arrived safely in good order, and after a little manoeuvring through the factory doors, the seamer was placed in line with the filling machine that has come from a Turkish manufacturer.

Set-up to run 99mm diameter paperboard cans and tinplate ends in two different can heights; training was delivered at the factory and the production staff were able to competently change each seaming can station height in just 10 minutes!
