Cans are known for their airtightness and recyclability, and they are now gaining renewed attention for their space efficiency and designs. More companies are making success in reviewing their product and relaunching them.
Different types of cans are used depending on the product category
We want to display more products on the shelf - cylinder shaped cans are the best to reduce the number of trips to and from the backyard and to lower the delivering cost.
They were looking for a company that can put the oil into 1L (round) can which is quickly disappearing in the market and close the lid with a machine so that they can save up the space in storage and on the shelf.
They were not sure if stable supply was possible because it was a revival product with no plan to reinvest in facilities even at major manufacturer.
After confirming their manufacturing plan, we added a new facility for 1L cans to our existing small can folder and agreed to handle from filling to can seaming. This is an example of using our existing can seamer in full operation. Such facility is very rare apart from large canned food factories or food manufacturers. Please consider this option according to your product property.
Our special solvent volatilize from the moment we open the lid. Even if we close the container with a plug, some of the content is lost after one day. Why is this happening? Can we do something to avoid this? - After receiving this inquiry, we conducted a number of tests.
They wanted to commercialize a highly volatile cleaning agent, with which the airtightness of the can is the top requirement. They wanted to test everything from the shape of the can to content volume and type of the packing.
They needed to do verification tests for months to check a lot of items including the inner treatment agent for the can, impact of the material of the packing, comparing airtightness of square can and round can, impact of the inner pressure in cold region, etc.
After the test filling attempts under various conditions, followed by an accelerated constant temperature test, freezing test and the measurement of volatilization volume for a few months, we proposed the best specification and commercialized the product. It was the most difficult test with different conditions ranging from type of can, volume of the air inside, packing, plug shape, storage temperature and severe test. The product finally went into the market surviving the "birth pains."
What is the best specification for selling the imported coating in Japan? Dilution ratio differs a lot by the use of the solution. Upon considering the cost of storage and transportation, we decided to use the traditional 18-liter square can.
They wanted to decide the type of container for selling an imported coating - Our proposal was to portion it out from drums, given the logistics, storage and the user's operation.
They wanted to offer products for various markets within a limited number of imported drums.
We proposed to make four products (18-liter square can, 9L can, 2.5kg bottle and 1L bottle) out of one production batch, and estimated the cost, and agreed to handle from filling to product storage before shipping. Out of one drum, 18L and 9L cans were portioned out and packaged, and the remaining is packed into 2.5L and 1L bottles to avoid any loss. When visiting our factory, many clients are surprised to see our seamers for pull-tub cans and 1L cans in operation. You will find clues for new product development.
