Within the Can Making Industry, Can Twists, or Can Inverters as they’re also known, play a very important part in its success and growth. Their primary function is to twist or invest the cans during their production/conveyor system. It’s also important that a correct re-invert or re-twist also occurs. The objective with Can Twists or Can Inverters is to ensure that the can’s continue through an uninterrupted process, resulting in improved throughput and efficiency.
Usually, Can Twists and Can Inverters come as in-line systems or conveyor-to-conveyor systems off the back of a single lane conveyor system. During the preparation and design stage of your Can Twists, it’s important to remember that the best solution for your process will always be the bespoke option. In the Can Making Industry, it’s rare that a ‘one size fit’s all’ solution or ‘off-the-shelf’ solution is at all a viable one. CKW Pro-Can (Engineering) offers complete bespoke Can Twists and Can Inverter solutions, tailor-made to your set up. Either system may also require varying can sizes and effective switchovers. Our solutions are put in place to be future proof for your varying can sizes and requirements.
Speed and protection is also a vital consideration with the product. The correct Can Twist solution will ensure that blockages, damages and downtime are eliminated within the process for a much more cost-effective lifetime of the can making process.
In the video above, you can see some of CKW Pro-Can’s latest Can Twists that were designed and manufactured on-site at our Wigan, United Kingdom-based workshop.
