Pride Conveyance Systems, A Roeslein Company, announces recent updates to its Horizontal Air Doubling Box (ADB) product. The newly redesigned product features a more robust, ribbed deck support system that is welded for durability and allows the user to be able to replace the deck as needed.
The latest developments in the can manufacturing industry are being driven by the canmakers’ need for increased efficiency of their global production lines as it relates to ease of start-up, faster can size changes, more reliable performance, and reduced maintenance frequency/time.
Consumer trends are leaning toward a more sleek can profile, which requires a taller, lighter can and places new requirements on conveyance performance to avoid damage as the product is conveyed throughout the manufacturing process and improved can quality inspection techniques.
Pride’s update to the Air Doubling Box accommodates multiple can sizes, smaller can diameters, taller can heights, and lighter gauge cans. With flatter deck tolerances, the user is able to maintain more precise can clearances from the bottom to the top edge of the can.
