Big square can automatic production line operating process
First, place the cut can body materials into the automatic resistance welding machine's feeding table,Suck by the vacuum suckers,send the tin blanks to the feeding roller one by one.through the feeding roller,the single tin blank is fed to the rounding roller to conduct rounding process,then it will be fed to the rounding forming mechanism to make rounding.
The body is fed into the resistance welding machine and make welding after the accurate positioning.After welding,the can body is automatically fed into the rotary magnetic conveyor of the coating machine for outer coating,inner coating or inner powder coating, Which depends on customer's various need.It is mainly used to prevent the side welding seam line from being exposed in air and rusting.The can body should be placed in induction drying oven to dry if it's inner coating or inner powder coating.Afer drying, It will be fed to cooling device to make natural cooling.
The cooled can body is then fed to the big square can combination machine,and the can body is in an upright state going through the uprighting conveyor.It is fed to the first automatic side welding seam indexing station by the clamps.The second station is square expanding.When the can body is in position,on the can body lifting tray which is controlled by a servo motor,and the can body is sent by this lifting tray to the square expanding mold to make square expanding.The third station is to make panel and corner embossing.
When the can body is in position, on the can body lifting tray which is controlled by a servo motor,and the can body is sent by this lifting tray to the make panle and corner embossing at a time.The fourth station is top flanging,the fifth station is bottom flanging.The bottom flanging:the can will be sent to the bottom flanging mold lying on the upper part of the machine by lifting tray to make it.The top flanging:the upper cylinder will press the can body to the position of top flanging mold to make it.
Both the top and bottom can body flanging are each driven by four cylinders.The sixth station is automatic lid detecting and feeding and seaming.After the above six procedures,the can will be reversed up and down by reversing device,and then make top seaming,this process is the same as the bottom seaming process.Lastly.the finished can is fed by conveyor to automatic leak tester station.After accurate air source inspection,unqualified products are detected and pushed to a fixed area,and qualified products will come to the packaging workbench for the final packaging process.

In a typical canbody production line, the slitter is the first stage in the manufacturing process. It cuts printed and lacquered metal sheets into body blanks of the required size. The addition of a blank stack transfer unit further increases the slitter’s efficiency.
Our slitters are custom-made. They are extremely robust, facilitate simple, swift adjustment to different blank formats and ensure exceptionally high precision.When it comes to versatility, precision, reliability and production speed, our slitters are so suitable for tin canbody producing.

The canbody welder is at the heart of any three-piece can production line. It forms the body blanks into their basic shape and welds the seam overlap. Our Superwima welding principle requires only a minimal overlap of a few tenths of a millimeter. Optimum control of the welding current combined with precision-matched pressure on the overlap. Since the launch of the new generation of welders, customers all over the world have confirmed today their considerable satisfaction on an outstanding and a high machine reliability combined with an economical and an efficient production. New industrial standards have been set in the manufacture of canbodies worldwide.

Changtai has a modular range of curing systems designed to harden the seam protection layer effectively. Immediately after the application of the lacquer or powder seam protection layer, the canbody goes heat treatment. We have developed advanced gas or induction-operated modular heating systems with automatic temperature regulation and speed-adjustable conveyor belts. Both heating systems are available in linear or U-shape layout.
