Worldwide production of cans and tins now exceeds almost 300 billion units per year. They are mainly made from the materials aluminium or tinplate. The processes in which these containers are later used and, above all, filled by manufacturers are very diverse.
A decisive factor in production is maintenance, which is intended to prevent unexpected downtimes. The professional welding technology of BEHAbelt enables safe and above all fast end connections for round belts (Can Cables). This reduces the downtime of your plant.
Already many maintenance personnel are enthusiastic about the operation of the welding technology and now use the advantages of the complete solutions especially adapted to the canning industry. A special feature is the CRIMP connection for steel reinforcements, which replaces steel cables with PU coating. Besides welding technology, BEHAbelt also offers robust Can Cables for your applications.

Transport von leeren Dosen

Conveying empty cans

When handling empty cans, the length of the conveyor section is an important criteria for choosing the right belt. Particularly with short straight sections or inclines, great savings can be achieved here in terms of time and effort. Often a simple butt weld is sufficient here, which can be produced quickly and effectively with a welding paddle (e.g. EErgo 60). For longer sections, the round belt is reinforced by a suitable reinforcement and should therefore be spliced endless with an overlap weld (e.g. with HP01 or FZ03/1).

Transport von vollen Dosen

Conveying full cans

The handling of filled cans causes a high mechanical load. Particularly with long conveying distances, it is necessary to compensate for this both with an appropriately hard round belt made of TPE (from Shore 55D) and additional strengthening with a reinforcement. In this case, an overlap welding must be carried out so that the splice is able to withstand the loads.

Chemistry-based content:
e.g. paints, vanishes or spray cans

When filling cans with chemical-based contents, it is important that appropriately resistant can cables are used. These are characterised by a longer service life and thus ensure reliable operation. Can Cables from BEHAbelt are resistant to chemicals and are available in different degrees of hardness with different reinforcements.

Professional welding technology
for butt and overlap welding

BEHAbelt offers welding tools for the production of industrial belt splices. Especially for Can Cables with reinforcement it is in most cases indispensable that an overlap welding is carried out instead of a butt welding. In the following overview we show you which welding tools are primarily suitable for which joining method.

Butt welding to reduce elongation
without changing the belt tensile force.

Friction welding machine RS02

Reibschweißmaschine RS02

The unique friction welding machine is the fastest and safest way to weld PU Can Cables. Within a few seconds, consistently good quality splices are produced here with high repeatability due to fixed welding parameters.

Process reliable CRIMP splice for round belts with steel reinforcement
as an alternative to PU-coated steel cables

A special design form is the connection of round belts with steel reinforcements. In this case, the exposed reinforcement is connected with CU press sleeves and the resulting gap in the connection point is then filled again with material inserts. With the BEHAbelt hot press HP01 this part is pressed and connected with the remaining material. For the preparation of the connection point to be pressed BEHAbelt offers the connection set RH-2, which contains all necessary components.
This variant of the CRIMP connection is an ideal alternative to PU coated steel cables. These are usually connected with the very complex splicing technique.

Characteristics of reinforcements in comparison

The use of reinforcements in belt profiles provides for more or less working elongation, depending on the type of belt, although the stiffness is in contrast to this.
