Farrat have been supporting can makers since 1959. Providing production managers, specifiers and OEM’s with practical vibration control solutions, driving operational excellence in this growing market.
Controlling vibration is very important in the can making manufacturing and printing processes for several reasons.
Quality control: Vibration can cause defects in cans, such as dents or scratches, and affect the accuracy of printing, leading to misaligned images or smudging. Controlling vibration can help to minimise these defects and ensure that the cans meet the required specifications.
Equipment performance: Vibration can cause wear and tear on the processing equipment, leading to decreased performance and increased maintenance costs. Controlling vibration can help to optimise equipment performance and reduce the need for repairs or replacements.
Worker safety: Vibration can create an unsafe working environment, leading to injuries, accidents, and health problems. Controlling vibration can help to reduce the risk of these hazards and create a safer workplace.
Noise reduction: Vibration can result in high levels of noise, which can be a nuisance to workers and nearby residents. Controlling vibration can help to reduce noise levels and create a more comfortable work environment.
Efficiency: Vibration can cause interruptions in the can making process, leading to decreased efficiency and increased downtime. Controlling vibration can help to minimise these interruptions and improve the overall efficiency of the manufacturing process.
Equipment manufacturers are increasingly designing machinery to work faster and with more precision, whilst reducing weight and cost. However, impact machinery used to press or form metal in the canning industry is still significant. Whether relocating existing machinery, installing new equipment or are involved in detailing foundations, Farrat have the knowledge and experience to provide the right solution for any production facility.
