Color coating line for aluminum can material

SMS group has supplied a color coating line to Chinese aluminum producer Shandong Nanshan. The line will be engineered for an annual production of 50,000 tons of coated aluminum strip. This material is mainly intended for the production of beverage cans.

The highlight of the plant design is the compact coating process; the chemical pre-treatment section, the subsequent strip coating process, and the drying furnace are perfectly synchronized. This ensures high product quality and low consumption of resources, including energy. Not restricted to the coating process equipment, we supplied all mechanical equipment and the entire electrical and automation systems for the lines. Furthermore, SMS was responsible for supervising installation and commissioning.
