The Blechwarenfabrik Limburg produces more than 80 million metal packaging units each year – cans, round and square-cut, small and large, mainly for the coating industry. For this purpose, the company needs more than 21 thousand tons of tinplate each year – this corresponds to the weight of three Eiffel towers. A new gantry press makes better use of the tinplate surface to be cut out and therefore helps the company save 800 tons of the raw material each year. Furthermore, the company uses special film lamination plants; thus for a part of the cans coating is no longer required. This saves energy and lacquer as a raw material. The technology is also transferable to other fields of application that require coating.
