Various equipment and key terms related to the 2-piece (2PC) can manufacturing process:

Stamping press: This is a hydraulic plunger press used to stamp a cup-shaped can body from a metal coil. This is one of the first steps in the creation of a 2-piece can, where the cup serves as a precursor to the body of the can.

Concentric dies: These are used in the drawing press to form the raw cup or can body into a dimensionally correct 2-piece can body. The cup is forced through these dies to achieve the desired shape.

Decorator: This equipment is used to print designs on the can body. The knowledge base mentions ink and print-related problems, such as foaming, that could occur in decorators.

Body former: After the initial hollowing process, the craftsman trims and irons the lid to create the final body of the can to the desired height and wall thickness.

Washer and base coater: After molding, cans are usually washed to remove any lubricants or contaminants and then coated with a base coat to protect them and prepare the surface for printing.

Oven (curing oven): After printing, the cans go through an oven to cure the ink and coatings applied during the decorating process.

Necker: This machine is used to form the neck of the can and can also flange the rim to prepare it for the end (lid) to be attached.

Light tester: This equipment is used to check for pinholes and other defects in the can body.

Palletizer: Once the cans have been manufactured and inspected, they are usually palletized for shipping.

For a thorough understanding of the entire can making process, especially for 2-piece cans, it would be advisable to consult industry experts or can making machinery manufacturers.
