Benefits Of The CM 16 SILENTIUM


Maximum silence during production (< 80 dB) and maximum access for setup and maintenance. The lift up and down is made by a hydraulic system that ensures a smooth and safe operation.

IPC Control

A powerful IPC in combination with an advanced software eliminates the limits of PLC’s and boosts the handling and monitoring remarkably. Thanks to the built in wireless access point you may watch over your production from wherever you like. As a standard is the software supplied together with the welder.

Doubleflex Rollformer

With 2 flexer stations we have taken a step to enhance rollforming quality and tackle hardness and thickness variations without additional (and uppricing) technologies. This serves not only the welding process but also the further flanging and seaming processes.


Only 1 instead of 4 items must be adjusted after redressing the welding roll to achieve a constant welding quality. That means minimal down time plus a reduction of human handling errors. Nice side effect: small and cheap nosepiece (z-bar tip)

Swing Out Tool Carriage

Up to 30 kg is the weight of a calibration crown. Therefore we have built a user-friendly tool carriage which simplifies the changeover procedure, protecting your back and giving you a convenient position for tool set up.


Complete new wear free running hardware with up to 10’000 measurements / second at max. 4 channels plus the very easy to understand and open SmartCONTROL software bring you a big step closer to a zero-defect production.

Wire Treatment

As in all Can Man welders is the wire routing among the most simple ones ever made. Compare it with one of your welders and you’ll see the difference.

Scoring Unit

The integration of a scoring unit in combination with a separator allows a production of up to 800 cans per minute, in case your complete production process requires that speed. Still the canbody production can be done at a very comfortable speed of 400 cans per minute which grants a high efficiency and lower running costs.

Central Lubrication

Optimum access to the lubrication points for easy maintenance will considerably relieve your production employees and thus increase your line’s availabilty. Rollformer lubrication can be done easily over a central lubrication bar.

Welding roller dressing unit

Professional and exact profiling of the welding roll is an important factor for a smooth canbody production. With Can Man's dressing unit this job can be done on a high quality standard, no matter which brand of welding roll is used.

Blank measuring unit

A good can starts with a good blank. To do important offline controls we provide the blank measuring unit to ensure that cutting tolerances are kept within the lmits.

Ball tester

Check the stability / strength of the seam throughout the entire canbody length, including beginning and end of the welded seam. The seam has to withstand either high pressures and mechanical stresses, espcially aerosol and food cans.

Digital roller cutter adjusting unit

To adjust the roller cutters precisely and within shortest time we provide a digital roller cutter adjusting unit which can be mounted on the slitter. For first and second cutting operation, depending on the type of knives you are using.
