The semi-automatic side seamer is used for the side-seaming of cans, containers, buckets and other bodies. Blanks formed by rollers or stamping machines are locked on both sides, gripped and uniformly seamed in one operation. The handling of the machine is so simple that a well trained person can produce 1000 or more bodies per hour regardless of can size.
The mandrel is suitable for inside, outside or other types of seam. Blades for different seams can easily be changed. The drive is through flywheel from which the power is transmitted by an electro-pneumatic friction clutch and brake to the camshaft actuating the ram and the upper dies.
The camshaft also controls the movement of the blades in the mandrel. The machine is fitted with a pneumatic holding device. This helps to simplify placement of the pro ducts to be processed.
The holding device depends on the product, i.e. its two side supports or mountings may have to be exchanged, depending on the size of the products which will be made.
