How Are Tin Cans Made
Tinplate can, as the name suggests, is a packaging can made of tinplate. Tinplate is the tin on the surface of iron to protect it. Compared with other materials, cans are more widely used, such as tea cans, biscuit cans, gift cans, wine cans and so on. In addition to the diversity of printing on the surface of the can, and the good gloss, it is more beautiful and beautiful. The reason why people like to use tin can packaging is that the compatibility strength of tin can is good and it is suitable for preservation.
Tinned tinplate is the material of tinplate. Because of its excellent metal toughness, tinplate can be easily made into different shapes, which makes the metal packaging container full of variety. It can not only increase the sales volume of packaging products, but also have artistic and recyclable green packaging characteristics. In the future development space, it is still open and incomparable. The following Makou iron can factory Bo new can for you to explain the manufacturing process of iron cans, I believe you can broaden your horizons!
1.Before making tins, we need to select materials. Tinplate types can be divided into: bright iron, silver iron and smooth iron. Smooth iron is widely used in can making. The above several kinds of iron materials have their own characteristics and can produce different effects. Therefore, different materials should be selected according to the characteristics of the products in the can making production.
2.After determining the can making material, it is necessary to determine the shape and making process of the can. At present, the main shapes of can are square, rectangle, circle and so on. The shape of foreign cans tends to be special-shaped, such as chezai can, heart-shaped can, plum shaped can, lip shaped can and so on. In the production process. Embossing, embossing, hollowing out and printing are the conventional production processes, but the effect of each process is obviously different, so it needs to be determined according to the customer and product positioning factors.
3.Printing oil selection. The iron material after printing needs oil treatment. This process can directly affect the visual and tactile effects of consumers on the cans. Different oils bring different visual and tactile feelings. The purpose of oiling is to attract consumers and improve product sales. At present, the more common oil is light oil (transparent oil), followed by dumb oil. There are explosion oil, pearl oil, wrinkle oil, rubber oil, etc.
With the continuous improvement of can making technology and the continuous updating of equipment, the automation level of tin can packaging production is higher and higher, the process is more sophisticated and the finished products are more exquisite. And the cost will get lower and lower. Can packaging is bound to become the packaging products chosen by manufacturers in various fields!
