LYNCHBURG, VA., April 20, 2023 – Belvac, part of Dover (NYSE: DOV), a leading global supplier in the two-piece metal packaging industry for over 60 years, today announced the latest development in can necking technology, the Servo Belvac Necker.
“The Servo Belvac Necker marks a new generation of energy-efficient machinery for the two-piece aluminum packaging industry. With the growing industry demand for sustainable technology, the Servo Belvac Necker has been engineered to maximize the profitability of can plant operations,” said Eric Hodge, Director of Global Sales Operations at Belvac.
The Servo Belvac Necker can continuously operate up to 3600 cans per minute while utilizing advanced servo motor control, allowing for every turret to independently rotate. The Servo Belvac Necker uses up to 15% less electrical consumption compared to the standard motor and gearbox configuration on a traditional Necker. The independent rotation is ideal for quickly resolving can jam situations, facilitating faster resetting and synchronization, which in turn increases efficiency.
“Belvac has invested significantly in value engineering the machine, which addresses our customers’ need for more sustainable technology. We look forward to showcasing the machine to the industry at METPACK,” said David Mammolenti, President of Belvac.
The 2023 METPACK Conference, which is the world’s leading trade fair for metal packaging, will be held at Messe Essen in Essen, Germany, from May 2-6.
