Lanico’s SteeloCare at Metpack
At this year’s Metpack in Essen, Germany, Lanico unveiled its SteeloCare product, a tinplate monobloc design aerosol can. The cans were developed alongside packaging steel producer ThyssenKrupp Rasselstein and the press manufacturer Schuler Pressen.
Lanico’s technique enables inner seaming of the can, a visible bottom fold is not required. The can reaches the 18 bar classification and burst pressures of more than 25 bar.
Michael Kaufmann, Lanico technical director, describes the aerosol can’s benefits: “While developing this can, we optimised all successive and interrelated processes together with ThyssenKrupp Rasselstein and Schuler. Machine employment and tool use have been minimised and corrosion stability is extremely high. Thanks to the steel material developed by ThyssenKrupp Rasselstein, the can bodies by Schuler and the LANICO inner fold application our customers receive an optimum system with guaranteed functionality and performance.“
