Coil-to-can yields high-impact graphics

Par-Way Tryson of St. Clair, MO, has launched a line of Vegalene Seasoning Sprays in an attractive two-part steel aerosol container.

The high-impact packaging is made by DS Containers, which uses Daiwa’s coil-to-can technology. In this approach to can making, the coil of steel is drawn into a can and then printed offset, in this case in eight colors. Next is a press that forms the dome top followed by a station in which the bottom is seamed on. A key benefit to this method of steel can-making is that there is no seam running down the sidewall to interfere with the smooth, high-impact graphics. In addition, the Vegalene cans are made with 25% recycled steel.
