LYNCHBURG, VA--Belvac Production Machinery, Inc., a Dover Diversified Company and a leader in can and other rigid container machinery manufacturing for the beverage and food industries, has introduced the 595 Modular Necking System/Fixed Base Link.
Over the years Belvac has been responsible for numerous advances in canmaking technology. These innovations have enabled our customers to steadily increase line speeds and improve quality and productivity, while significantly reducing materials costs.
The Belvac 595 series necking system has evolved continuously to meet the requirements of canmakers since being introduced in 1988, originally as a fixed base design. In 1995, Belvac redefined the canmaking process with the modular necking system.
The Belvac modular necking system dramatically decreases wasted floor space, can damage, labor and training. The reduction of costly space and air consuming trackwork, elevators and other redundant equipment offers the canmaker a simple process and significant savings.
The modular system minimizes installation and platform costs, and controls the can's transportation throughout the entire process. This reduced "can handling," as compared to that of interconnecting trackwork and conveyors, preserves can quality and reduces spoilage.
Now the canmaker can enjoy the many benefits of the modular necking system by using their existing fixed base machines and the 595 Modular Link.
Belvac's new 595 Modular Link connects a 595 fixed base necker to the 595 modular necking system. This link allows control of the can during the entire process, maintains can quality, and reduces spoilage.
Now you can order the modules you want today and, in the future, add more modules as your needs change. The 595 Modular Link connects necker, flanger, base reformer, base reprofiler, inspection, dual infeed and intermediate discharge modules to existing 595 fixed base neckers-for one continuous operation.
The 595 Modular Link includes an externally mounted, gear-coupled drive system that attaches the 595 fixed base to the 595 modular necking.
