UV RIM Coating
UVio has worldwide experience of producing innovative UV curing solutions for the Beverage Can industry. In particular, UVio has expertise in Bottom Rim Coating – where protective coatings are applied to the bottom rim of both steel and aluminium beverage cans.
Benefits of Bottom Rim Coating
- For Steel: to protect the Can from corrosion after it leaves the Canmaker until it reaches the consumer.
- For Aluminium: to improve Can mobility and production efficiency through the manufacturing and filling lines.
UVio offers a range of options from individual component supply to fully integrated systems with air-conditioned control cabinets and standalone machine controls, including everything from coating tanks to conveyors.
Integrated Mass Rim Coat Systems:
Our experience of installing Heraeus Noblelight UV systems into Beverage Can lines has led to our latest innovation: the Integrated Mass Rim Coater (IMRC) system. This system has been designed to optimise ease of use and minimise cost of ownership.
Market leading Core Technologies
- Rim Coaters: Gerhard’s range of metering roll applicators and coating delivery systems offer unrivalled adjustability and durability.
- UV Lamps: Heraeus Noblelight’s UV lamp systems have led the way for this application for many years, with the LH10 Mark II System being the latest innovation.
