One seaming head, up to 50.000 cans per shift

Seaming head

Its excellent seaming quality meets the toughest international seaming standards (American FDA, Canadian CFIA) and is backed by the most renowned canmakers.

The patented ANTI TWIST device makes it possible to correct cam seam twisting defect without having to readjust the copy disc.


Six stations rotary clincher acting as a product pusher-topper

Safest and most effective rotary clincher on the market when canning complicated products such as large sardines, squid, octopus, mussels, cockles, peppers, sauerkraut, corned beef, etc.

For overfilled cans or those with bits sticking out it acts as a CAN TOPPER, pressing down and fitting any protruding product back into the can. It acts also as a GUILLOTINE, cutting off sardine tails, octopus tentacles or pieces of meat that hang over the edges of the cans.

Main functions:
  1. Separates and feeds each lid accurately onto each can body. With 6 stations, process is continuous, slow & precise.
  2. Pushes and fits overfilled product into the can.
  3. Displaces the excess of oil, brine or sauce from each can before seaming.
  4. Clinches and holds every lid onto its can body at two opposite points.
