How cans are made
Cans for food, drinks and non-food products may be constructed out of either two or three pieces of metal.
The first cans ever produced were three-piece and they were developed in the middle of the 19th century. They consist of a cylindrical body rolled from a piece of flat metal with a longitudinal seam, usually formed by welding, with a top and bottom, each seamed on the ends of the body.
Three-piece cans may be manufactured in almost any practical combination of height, diameter and shape. This process is particularly suitable for making cans of different sizes as it is relatively simple to change the parameters of the can under production.
The Cazander Brothers mainly have machinery for three-piece cans in stock.
What is a compressor?
A compressor is a mechanical device that increases the pressure of a gas by reducing its volume. An air compressor is a pneumatic device that converts power (using an electric motor, diesel or gasoline engine, etc.) into potential energy stored in pressurized air (i.e. compressed air).
Cazander Brothers regularly offer quality used compressors from their extensive stock.
