Two-Piece vs Three-Piece Cans
Distinctive and differentiating

Metal packaging presents a premium image to your customers and is an ideal canvas for brand and product graphics. Our sophisticated shaping capabilities and custom graphics and finishes deliver impact in ways that plastic packaging simply can’t. For example, we can offer NoVar inks that allow matte and gloss on same package, soft-touch inks for a rubberized feel and metallic flake and pearl base coat effects.

How it’s made
Stage One

Steel strip arrives at the can manufacturing plant in large coils

The steel strip is lubricated and then fed continuously through a cupping press, which blanks and draws thousands of shallow cups every minute. Each cup is rammed through a series of tungsten carbide rings, re-drawing the cup to a smaller diameter and thinner walls while increasing the height.

Cans are trimmed and cut to a precise, specified height. The surplus material is recycled and the can bodies are washed and dried, removing all traces of lubricant in preparation for coating internally and externally.

How it's made
Stage Two

The cans are coated externally by passing through a waterfall of clear lacquer which protects the surface against corrosion and then dried in an oven.

The cans are passed through a flanger which flanges the top of the cans outward to fit with the end after the can is filled.

Cans are then passed through a beader where the walls of the cans are imprinted with a beading pattern that gives them additional strength.

Every can is tested at each stage of the manufacturing process. In the final stage, they pass through a light tester, which automatically rejects any cans with imperfections.

How it's made
Stage Three

The inside of the cans is sprayed with a protective coating and they are dried in an oven.

The finished bodies are then transferred to the warehouse to be palletised and dispatched to the filling plant.

Creating the world’s lightest seafood can

With support from our R&D Centre, Trivium’s aluminium can plant in Cuxhaven, north Germany, succeeded in producing the world’s lightest aluminium seafood can.

The shaped Dingley can achieves a wall thickness of 0.170mm – a significant advance over its nearest competitor at 0.215mm. Despite being extremely light in weight, it retains the stability of a standard can and may be fitted with an Easy Open® ring-pull lid.
