The Belvac 595 and 795 series Flangers incorporate design engineering improvements that are essential for today's demanding flange width requirements for beverage and food cans.
The Flanger module can be coupled to the Belvac 595K and 595SK Modular Necking Systems or the turrets can be installed in 595K or 795 Fixed Base machines. This unit is also available as a 10 or 12 station stand alone machine, depending on speed requirements, for food cans up to 307 diameter.
Fixed position (595K) or spring loaded (595SK and 795) dual cam followers are used in the Flanging Turret to control the push ram. The can is held in the machine by vacuum applied to the push plate, controlled by a rotary manifold and ducted down hollow push rams. The spin head design is tailored to the end diameter being flanged.
This Radial Flanging System (RFS) assures that the can is controlled throughout the entire process, improving flange formation and lowering flange width variation. At each necking turret, a guide extension is fitted inboard of the front guide rail. This extension maintains the can presentation to the die in a more accurate manner by providing a reaction force to the radial force, lowering can height variation.
A proprietary round shoulder and conventional profile necker tooling design utilizes die throat support during necking, resulting in improved flange width control. This tooling design produces a necked can with less can height loss, increased column strength, and a considerable improvement in necked can height variation.
The Flanger has been redesigned with new 3, 4 or 5 button radial spin heads that improve the formation of the flange and provide consistent flange width to meet demanding ultra-light can specifications.
