(2) Coating A protective coating is placed the sheets and cured in a 27 meters LTG gas-fired oven.
(3) Printing The sheets are decorated with whatever printing the customer desires and then an over coat of vanish is placed on the decorated sheet and cured in a 27 meters LTG gas fired oven.
(4) End forming Ends are stamped out .
(5) Slitting Body sheets are slit into individual body blanks which will be formed into cans
(6) Body Forming Body blanks are fed into a body-maker where they are formed into cylinders and are joined at their side seams by weld.
(7) Double seam One end, top or bottom, depending on customer specifications, is double seamed on the can. What do these do : a position must be accurate within one tenth of a millimeter in most reconfigurations.
