UV Bottom Rim Cure

Fast, efficient UV curing system for wear resistant, zero VOC bottom rim coating that improves metal can mobility with fewer can jams and greater throughput.

The Nordson CoolWave 2 UV Rim Cure System is designed for 2pc can manufacturing, for installation immediately following the washer.  Cans are coated using a special roll coater, en masse, and then exposed to high-intensity ultra-violet light energy, for very fast curing with significant energy savings compared to thermally-cured coatings.
