Vertical corrugators - Merco machines

Vertical corrugators

Vertical corrugators

Our vertical flangers are available as a stand-alone machine, but mostly integrated station of our 3th generation body forming equipment, and handle up to 800 drums/h.

In both cases, they are fully servo controlled.

Servo controlled machines have distinctive advantages over hydraulically operated versions: they consume less energy, require less maintenance and have an increased life expectancy.

The standard setup includes two flanging rings for TH drums production and one curling ring for OH drums production. Optionally, the machine can be equipped with a 3th tooling for the ISO OH curling process.

All changeovers from TH to OH or ISO OH drums from the operator takes less than 20 seconds when using the optionally available automatic tooling change system. Up to three tools can be integrated.

  • Capacity: up to 800 drums/h
  • Drum thickness: up to 1,2 mm (0,059" - gauge 18)
  • Heads: Both tight head and open head

Optionally, we can integrate an additional station with lubrication units that precedes the flanging station and allows for lubricating the upper and lower edge of the incoming drum shells.

To shorten changeover times and thus increase production time, we can also offer a monorail system with up to three tools that, for example, automatically exchange the upper flanging ring by the curling ring. This tooling exchange cycle takes less than 20 seconds, and can be operated from the HMI panel.
