Can tooling


A large variety of metal packaging is available. Whether two-piece or three-piece can, in the form of a tube or bottle: LPT provides the right tools for the manufacturing process.

One focus area is the two-piece beverage can. Whether cupper press, bodymaker, or necker: LPT tools can be found all over the world.

The high quality and wear resistance of LPT tools contribute to a reduction of production costs by extending service life and reducing scrap.

The comprehensive regrinding service increases the tool life cycle and, thus, supports sustainable and environmentally friendly production.

Can tool applications play an important role in our work. The manufacturing of metal cans is a highly sophisticated process involving coils, lubricants, tools, machines, and sensors. The failure of one of these elements can interrupt the entire production process. Thanks to our extensive experience, we can provide competent support to our customers through all phases of can production – from design and development to support and trouble-shooting.

For the production of cans, the bodymaker machine is a central unit. It is exposed to extreme physical stress – especially extreme wear and tear. Bodymaker tools made of carbide are best suited for the longest service life. The precision and quality of LPT tools ensure the best product quality at the highest possible production speed.

Cupper Punch

The cupper is the first station in the can production process. The cup / round plate is made from the coil and then further processed in the bodymaker.

In order to form the best cup with optimal material use, the highest precision is required. LPT tools can provide such results. The combination of several materials (e.g., carbide and ceramic) and the selection of the best grades is part of LPT’s consulting services.

In the necker, the upper part of the can is formed in such a way that allows it later to receive the lid.

To prevent errors in the nearly completed product, a sensitive forming process is required. Material selection is made at this point: Ceramic is ideal, but certain types of carbide can also be used. LPT as worldwide known experts for Necker-Tooling has the necessary expertise to make the best selection.
