HIGH CAPACITY - STAINLESS CAN SEAMERS

Fastest we ever produced

SAGA M series of round can seamers consist of 3 machines. Available with 4, 6 or 8 spindles, they cover productions from 50 to 600 cans/min and can be linked with all fillers available on the market. 
 

Executions vary from atmospheric, steam vacuum, under cover gassing, liquid nitrogen dosing, clinching and can making. JK SOMME offers a solution for all commonly produced round cans up to 99 mm diameter (401D) and heights up to 120 mm (250 mm under special order).

GEAR DRIVEN LIFTER PLATES & SEAMING CHUCKS 

Over the years, in an effort to cut material costs, tin plate thickness has been gradually reduced. When using these new cans on some old can seamers, operators are forced to keep high lower chuck pressure and slow the machine down to avoid chuck slippage problems.

Gear driven lower lifters have the following advantages:

  • Increased capacity in cans/min.

  • Increased seam integrity.

  • Reduced slipping of covers on seaming chuck and increase in chuck working life.

  • Reduction in spring pressure, eliminating the problem of mushroom flanges.

Best solution for seaming thin wall cans

 

MODULAR ASSEMBLY AND COMPACT DESIGN

Due to its clever engineering design and modular construction the 3 machines share almost 90% of parts enabling us to:

  • Reduce manufacturing costs.

  • Reduce delivery times. Ranging from 3-4 month depending on optionals.

  • Increase amount of available spare parts.

FAST CAN HEIGHT REGULATION

Changing from one can height to another is always a main issue for a can seamer operator. With SAGA M changeovers are simple and extremely fast. The procces:

    Unscrew three main bolts (two in columns and one in main central shaft).

  2   With a special hand tool rotate a pinion located on the roof of the machine. Doing so the complete seaming turret as well as the lid feeder will move up/down till reaching the desired height.

  3   Tighten bolts again.

  4   YOU ARE DONE!
