Cam Followers for RT Light Testers in Can Making Production Line

In a high speed can making production line, light inspection is required to find pin holes and split flanges after the necking process. Once cans have been coated and sealed, these finished cans are tested for leaks using a light tester, which can detect holes 0.002” wide, smaller than a human hair, and also spot cracked flanges as small as 0.015”.

When Intech iCamFollowers® are installed on the light tester ram they ensure that 3,000+ inspections can be performed per minute, more than sufficient to keep up with the high speed can production line and offer several important benefits.

After installation, the lubrication lines originally used to grease the metal cam followers can be disconnected, cutting down on periodic maintenance and possible contamination of the can. Another important benefit is the fact that the cam propelling the ram back and forth is now protected from wear by the IPC tire.

Fitted with precision ball bearings the Intech iCamFollowers® are easy rolling and the plastic tire does absorb shock and vibration for overall smoother performance.

The Intech iCamFollowers® have also been running successfully for many years in the necking operation on Belvac neckers, both on rams made by Intech, the light weight, self-lubricating square ram, as well as on the original Belvac rams. Light tester and cam followers
