Shell Ends or Normal Ends is stamped directly from metal coil or metal sheet (cut from coil). No matter from coil or sheet, the metal is fed in the forming machine to get the round profile. After removal from forming machine, the edge of shell ends will be slightly curled to ease the seaming operation when closing with empty cans. The curled shell ends will be then passed through compound lining machine to apply a liquid lining compound inside the curl. The compound is one of an important part in the hermetical seal process to the filled cans.
- Shell ends and EOE are attached with 2-Piece and 3-Piece Cans
