Beverage can coating
Perform quick, easy and safe changeovers of your coating wheels
Beverage canning is a massive industry. Humans across the globe utilize roughly 400 billion cans per year for their beverage consumption and that number continues to increase year after year.
To meet needs, requirements and increasing production of the beverage can industry, Hannecard developed HandyCoat®, a revolutionary coating system for beverage cans. This unique HandyCoat® system provides an extremely quick and efficient way to apply coatings to aluminum beverage cans, providing significant time and cost savings.
The patented beverage coating system
Developed as a sound and flexible alternative for current coating systems within the beverage canning industry, HandyCoat® is the umbrella term for Hannecard’s innovative and patented solution for base and overvarnish coaters. Changeovers for standard coating systems are often characterized as extremely labor-intensive. The HandyCoat® system changes this by separating the coater covering from the coater core.
The HandyCoat® solution features the HandyBase coater core and the Monkal® polyurethane HandySleeve® coated coverings, which have been developed exclusively for paint and varnish applications.
The HandyCoat® advantages
All beverage can height sizes can be coated on the same wheel thanks to the HandyCoat® “spacers” (distance rings).
Changeovers are 6 times faster than standard system changeovers, with no realignment of the wheel or crown required after changeover.
Provides up to 400% weight reduction for the operators, which makes it much safer than classical applicator rollers.
Reduced machine idle time coupled with reduced maintenance costs and lower transport costs, provides significant cost savings over standard systems.
The general ROI for the HandyCoat® can coating system is 6 to 18 months depending on coater/decorator and the can type.
Extended Covering Lifespans
Increased precision running conditions equates to +25% longer life than standard systems.
