INOX Seamer for new beverage can making line
Crown Bevcan France SAS has taken delivery of an INOX 10BEVM table top beverage can seamer from Eurocan Sales and Service for its can making plant in Custines, France.
The seamer was employed by Crown for double seaming cans on site for drop and can abuse resistance tests. Prior to purchase of the 10BEVM the commissioning engineers sent cans back to Crown’s research and design facility in Wantage, UK to be seamed and then returned to Custines.
The availability of the INOX 10BEVM seamer cuts out the turnaround time and the transport costs to help Crown ensure the commercial start-up of the line. The installation of this second high speed aluminium production line at Custines, completes the plant’s conversion from steel to aluminium. Drop tests and can abuse resistance tests (CART) are used to predict if the cans will resist an impact from a desired height.
INOX can seamers are a range of all stainless steel machines manufactured by Eurocan in the UK to comply with UK and EU food safety and hygiene standards for the food and beverage can filling industries. The INOX model 10BEVM was launched at the PPMA Total Show at the NEC Birmingham in September 2016 and has been positively received by the craft beer market, with the original batch of five machines sold prior to assembly.
10BEVM’s are now employed in UK breweries as well as in South Korea.
