Can Tooling

Zirconia Ceramic Components


We use our advanced ceramic materials to make high performance tooling for the production of two-piece cans, three-piece cans and aerosols for the food, beverage and specialty markets. Our product range includes Proseamer™ ceramic Can Seaming Rolls, Spin Flange Rolls, Z-Bar Tips, Diablo Rolls and many other wear resistant parts. The parts are made using Nilcra™ Zirconia, an advanced ceramic material that is exceptionally strong and tough. It is an ideal choice for use in can production because it is highly resistant to corrosive chemicals and food stuffs but gentle on the on the internal lacquer-coated surfaces. Nilcra™ Zirconia is a consistent, reliable material (Weibull Modulus > 30) with a low coefficient of friction. Abrasive materials have minimal effect on its surface. Can seaming rolls and other tooling parts made with Nilcra™ Zirconia last much longer than those made of conventional materials such as Tungsten Carbide and Tool Steel. They are durable enough to survive...
