Three-Piece Can Systems

Apply coatings to the interior of three-piece cans, improving product integrity and meeting stringent requirements of the food or aerosol packaging industry. Nordson Advanced Induction technology is used to cure side-seam stripe coatings on 3pc cans.


Nordson systems protect three-piece can interiors and their packaged products by applying liquid coatings as an inside spray lining or as a side-seam stripe to the inside or outside welded seam.  Nordson systems provide precise application, reduced material costs, and increased line speeds, for improved manufacturing efficiency and productivity.

Quality is monitored and achieved with Nordson systems such as the iTrax® spray monitor system or the new Flow Monitor and Control System. These products provide reliable and immediate identification of spray malfunctions. Our complete line of products for three-piece container systems includes:

  • MEG® Inside Stripe 
  • 25B Pump
  • Nozzles
  • High-Pressure Fluid Filters
  • NH-4 Heater
  • Flow Monitor and Control System

Nordson Advanced Induction curing systems are used to efficiently and economically heat 3pc can seams and cure the side-stripe coating. In fact, nothing compares to the efficiency and potential energy savings associated with induction heating for this application.
