Three-piece cans consist of a welded body, a fixed sanitary end and a loose end applied by the can filler. They're cost-effective and are available in many different sizes, from 52mm to 153mm in diameter. Visy offers three-piece cans with and without beading on the side (the ripples in the can add pack strength). Visy has its own integrated lithographic printing, or can sell plain silver cans for subsequent paper labelling. Standard can diameters are 52mm, 65mm, 73mm, 83mm, 99mm and 153mm, and a number of different height options are available in each standard can size.
Visy is the only Australian manufacturer of two-piece food cans. The two-piece can eliminates the need for a one-end closure and therefore uses less material, making it ideal for single-serve and multi-pack applications.
Like a three piece can, two-piece food cans can be decorated with lithographic printing and include necked-in features to make a product stand out. With more than a decade of experience, Visy has proven credentials in two-piece manufacturing technology, product specific coating specification and distortion printing capabilities.
Two-piece cans are available in 65x39.5mm, 73x35mm and 73x56mm formats.
By “necking-in” the top, these cans can be easily stacked, and offer significant benefits including reduced costs in transport, storage and handling of products. This feature also ensures that the product can be easily displayed on-shelf, and makes storage at home more convenient for consumers. The range of necked-in cans includes 65/62mm, 73/70mm, 83/80mm and 99/96mm can formats.
