Aluminium cans are immensely popular as containers for different types of beverages ranging right from soda to beer and such liquids. These ultra thin, highly glossy and lightweight cans are showcased supermarket shelves containing the drinks that all of us die for. But the question which remains unanswered is how do they make these cans? Here in this article, you will get to know how cleverly these sheets are made into convenient and the most preferred beverage cans.
First of all, they cut five plus a half inch diameter circles into thin sheets. These furnished circles are called blanks, drawn up at the extreme edges to form shorter sides. This now gives looks of a small tuna can.
In the next phase, all these little “tuna cans” are well-endowed on their edges in a chute which sends them to a certain machine. This machine is known by the name of “draw and iron machine”. As these “tuna cans” enter the machine, the cups are accommodated tightly by snug sleeves of metal. After that, each horizontal can is flapped down into from one side by a cylindrical mold which is called a punch. The resultant elongation of the container around the forge forms what looks just like the bottom of a can with a scraggy top edge.
The constitutional qualities of tin and aluminum make it a perfect packaging material, not only for edibles and drinkables, but also for common households, promotional products and industrial utilizations.
