Continuous Vertical IC Spray Machine


VertiSPRAY™, is a VERTICAL internal coating system that has an increased operating capability of 1000CPM (can size: 211×413), compared to the horizontal system which operates at 350CPM.  This system’s advancements in the internal spray application, demonstrates a 10% improvement, and coating savings of between 5-8%. The sustainability and efficiency of the VertiSPRAY™ system is further explained:

Single machine operates at 1000 CPM for a typical 211 x 413 can size:

  • Continuous motion (zero dwell)
  • Small footprint requires less space than traditional systems.

450 msec of spray time available compared to typical 150-170  msec:

  • Offers more uniform and consistent coating application to allow coating weight reduction while maintaining metal exposure quality, due to the longer spray time availability.
  • Ability to incorporate linear motion technology for gun movement.
  • Oscillating gun movement about nozzle tip
  • Lancing operation capability
  • Ideal for high aspect ration can (diameter to height ratio)

Requires less gun pressure than traditional:

  • Minimizes coating blow back
  • Allows cleaner machine
  • More Machine up-time
  • Less cleaning
  • Improved maintenance requirements

Process parameters are Computer controlled and can be saved to the on-board PLC:

  • Accessible through an integrated HMI
  • Chuck speed is variable
  • Number of wraps strickly controlled according to can specification
  • Variable speed turret control (machine speed)
  • Adjustable spray timing
  • Gun pressure control and monitoring

Improved exhaust management:

  • Exhaust savings is applied to the can, not to waste (5 – 8% less exhaust is applies to the can)
  • captures exhaust at the source
  • Cyclonic exhaust collector is an available option
  • Less exhaust means minimized or elimination of bag house demands
  • Less opportunity to incinerator fouling

Can Size: Change-Over Friendly:

  • Diameter size change requires only star wheel changes only
  • Height size change requires only gun re-positioning, no conveying changes
  • Coating distribution….recipes for various can requirements (beer, soft drink, isotonic) are saved to the on-board computer and easily recalled on the HMI

Includes Verticon’s patent pending nozzle tip gun adjustment technology:

  • Allows consistent nozzle tip placement
  • Eliminates need of X-Y typical gun adjustment

On-board nozzle and gun cleaning feature:

  • Minimize machine cleaning and downtime
  • Adjustable from continuous cleaning per revolution to any desired setting per revolution

New installations offer reduced conveying capital costs!
