Trivium’s DRD technology gives you the freedom to choose different shapes for your packaging, allowing for rectangular, round, cylindrical, conical and bowl-shaped cans. It is suitable for lower volume cans than DWI (Draw Wall Ironing) and offers direct printing application, including distortion.
DRD cans are commonly used for single-serve pet food and seafood cans, but can be found in a variety of different applications.
DRD cans are formed starting with a “blank” (metal cut-out) that corresponds to the eventual size and shape of the resulting can. The can is shaped by holding the blank in place and using a punch to push the metal into shape. Additional steps may be required, depending on the complexity of the shape.
