World Trade Show Premiere for INOX Can Seamers

INOX can seamers are offered for vacuum, Nitrogen gassing, vacuum and gassing, and standard atmospheric can closing applications. Designed for compliance with food safety and hygiene standards and providing exceptional double seaming integrity of tinplate, aluminium, paperboard or plastic cans and ends.

To comply with the criteria for wash-down certified food packaging equipment, the frame fabrication, safety guarding and mechanical parts are manufactured from food grade 316 stainless steel, with the tooling manufactured from vacuum hardened 440C martensitic stainless steel. INOX seamers can be washed with the same cleaning agents as used on a can filler.

The INOX range of all stainless steel can seamers is presented for the first time at an international packaging show by UK manufacturer Eurocan Sales & Service Ltd. Although first introduced in 2011 by Eurocan, the PPMA Total Show 2016 is the debut trade event for the INOX family of can closing machines, a range of all stainless steel semi-automatic and fully
automatic linear can sealers. The first can closing machine in the world to be designed with a straight line can transfer system, the modular Linear Seamers can be supplied with one to six seaming stations.

The 10 Series semi-automatic manually or pneumatically actuated motor driven can seaming machines are for low speed production or laboratory applications.

Matthew Day, Operations Director at Eurocan Sales & Service Ltd commented “the sales of INOX seamers quickly rewarded the capital we invested in their design and development, and we have delivered seamers worldwide in the last five years to companies as varied as a seed canner in Kenya, a shell fish canner in South Africa exporting prized canned Abalone to China, and to a new nut canning plant in Qatar”.

UK sales similarly include varied applications from processed foods, to milk powder, to craft beer. The latter market is served through a joint venture agreement with Leeds based Canning Technologies.

INOX Beverage seamers are offered by Canning Technologies to the UK craft beer market as part of a complete filling and packaging system comprising a purge/fill station, lid placement station, and the INOX 10BEV beverage can seaming station; with options for depalletiser’s, rinser/dryers, inline plate chillers and date coders.
