Swiss Can Machinery – Filling and Closing Machines for cans and jars

Swiss Can Machinery AG is your competent partner for innovative machines and components for filling and closing cans and jars with powder and dry products. In our own development department with experienced engineers we develop, design and realize individual machines as well as complete filling lines – customized to the individual needs of our international customers.

Our machines are especially developed for powder products to fill cans economically and reliable with milk powder or baby formula. Thanks to our modified atmosphere technology we can reach below 0.5% O2 inside the can. This fact guarantees a very long shelf-life of the packed product.

Developed especially for powders

Milk powder is a difficult filling product. It can show different filling properties, depending on formula, fat content, drying method, granulation and density rate. Even the same product’s properties can vary depending on manufacturing conditions.

Appropriate Know-How is necessary to engineer machines that are able to fill milk powder cleanly, accurately and efficiently. Swiss Can Machinery filling machines have been especially developed for the different properties of milk powder. They fulfil all expectations that you have to a modern filling machine

Filling and Seaming with G-matic (< 2.0 % O2)

Swiss Can Machinery AG has developped a new gassing system and set a new benchmark regarding efficiency and quality for powder filling in cans. With this development, Swiss Can Machinery is taking a major step towards complying with the ever-increasing trend for gassed cans for all food products.

This new process enables the Swiss Can Machinery can closing machine to achieve perfect gasifying of cans at normal speed. The result is vastly improved effectiveness. The cost-benefit ratio for this system is very high. As a result, cans now can be gasifyed without any major increase in complexity. For the first time, tin cans with tin lids and composite cans with tin or cardboard lids can be securely filled, gasifyed and closed with one single, compact and cost-efficient machine.

Seaming with V-matic (< 0.5 % O2 and defined underpressure)

By essential shortening of process times in the single vacuum stations with the V-matic procedure, it is nowadays possible to make machines for powder in a technology as they were formerly only applied in the pharmaceutical industry for very expensive products like vitamins. This technique does not only guarantee perfect safety for every single can, but also a quality performance standing up to every comparison with other methods.

The gas consumption of the V-matic system is extremely low, and also the use of CO2 is not necessary, as the underpressure is made mechanically. Like that, costs can be saved and the system is very environment-friendly. The vacuum chambers of the seaming machines are automatically cleaned of possible milk powder residues and sucked out after each process. This way nothing can happen even then when small quantities of powder dust come out of the can during evacuating.
