Solving a costly lubrication problem triggers unexpected productivity improvements
Can making equipment is nothing if not specialized. Yet the subsystems found on these machines offer a number of design lessons that can be applied more broadly by any engineer working to improve the performance and reliability of high-speed equipment.
Consider, for example, the cam-driven ram actuators found on a can line’s necking stations. Mounted on a rotating turret and moving at speeds up to 250 strokes per minute, these rams push the round can shell onto a series of shaping dies that gradually reduce the diameter of the can to form its neck.
