3-pc Welded Food Can-Making
Low acid foods have to be sterilized after filling to prevent microbial development. Microbes spoil the food and may also develop toxins, which are deadly when consumed. Head space aids product agitation inside the can during the process cycle and allowing for steam in the head space to collapse during cooling, creating a vacuum inside the can.
Easy-Open (EO) End-making
The convenience of Easy-Open Ends (EO) has spread their use to most cans in use today. A pre-scored break line in the end, along with an affixed tab to break the score line and pull out the partial end, makes up the EO end. Scoring steel or aluminum to enable a trouble free breaking at the score line requires excellent tooling and constant QA on the depth and of the score groove.
