Beverage can making process: Training videos (Part 2)

In the second upload of a 14 part series of videos, CanTech Online continues its look at how a beverage can is produced. The latest videos show the washing, outside coating and printing parts of the process. Once again there is an explanation of each section of the process above each video. Keep checking back for new videos. Videos are courtesy of Ball Packaging Europe. The idea of these videos is to help those who are new to the industry to learn about can making.
