MODULAR

The VIKING 300 RAPID is made of two separate modules (clincher and seamer) mechanically synchronized and driven by a single motor. The advantages of modular construction are:
  • Greater production. 30% more cans / min than the monoblock version.
  • The can seamer  works more cleanly since spilled liquids (oil, vinegar, sauces …) remain mainly in the clincher’s collection tray.
  • More convenient access for service and maintenance.
The clinched cans pass from the clincher to the seamer perfectly synchronized by a finger chain

HIGH CAPACITY IRREGULAR CAN SEAMER

1
cans per min
1
cans per 8 hrs shift
1
cans per month
1
cans per year

Cans move through the machine and are seamed in a continuous motion, without stops, smoothly, at constant speed, minimizing liquid spillage. If at any time a can breaks, it continues to work undeterred.

Between 50 and 60 cans per minute can be seamed by each of the 5 heads on a VIKING 300 RAPID. This means minimum wear and therefore a longer lifetime for seaming rolls, chucks and springs, etc.

The best choice for the massive production of 1/4 club, dingley and oval cans

OUTSTANDING SEAMING QUALITY

JK Somme’s seaming heads for irregular cans are the result of more than 100 years of continuous development. They include standard key features such as the following:

 

  • Patented “Anti Twist” technology allowing copying disc realignment without the need of regrinding.
  • Short cycle seaming system with rolls working in opposition for a perfect balanced seam.
  • Two first & two second operation seaming rolls/arms.
  • Pre-curling roll of the covers (optional).
  • Multi-adjustable seaming operation cams.
  • Extra rigid seaming levers for a perfect copy.
  • Stainless steel finish.
The final result is a seaming quality that meets and exceeds the toughest international seaming standards (American FDA, Canadian CFIA) backed by the most renowned can makers

ROTARY CLINCHER FOR OVERFILLED CANS

It acts as a can topper, pressing down and fitting any protruding product back into the can. It acts also as a guillotine, cutting off sardine tails, octopus tentacles or pieces of meat that hang over the edges of the cans:

 

  • The clincher separates and feeds each lid accurately onto each can body. With 8 stations, process is continuous, slow & precise.
  • Pushes and fits overfilled product into the can.
  • After that displaces the excess of oil, brine or sauce from each can before seaming.
  • Clinches and holds every lid onto its can body at two opposite points.
Safest and most effective rotary clincher on the market when canning complicated products such as large sardines, squid, octopus, mussels, cockles, peppers, corned beef, etc.
