Why You Should Choose Dixie Canner Co.!
Many companies dealing in packaged food and beverages have come to depend on canning to conveniently preserve and distribute their products from place to place. However, what really makes these metal packages the perfect option for parceling edible items are the seamers that convert them into leak-proof containers. Can seamers are designed to seal lids onto the can bodies by mechanically roll forming the two layers to create an airtight package that’s difficult to tamper with.
If you’re in the food and beverage industry and are looking for a quality can seamer, you need to put in a sufficient amount of research to find a company that produces the machines that match your requirements. You also need to go through different seamer reviews and speak to people who’ve used the seamers you plan to purchase.
At Dixie Canner Co., we are confident about the services we provide and will not shy away from giving you references. Besides, we will be happy to tell you why we are the top name in the canning industry.
We have been producing the highest quality can seamers for over a century and have thousands of happy clients. If you’re looking for durable can seamers, here are a few reasons why you should choose us.
Knowledge and experience
Dixie Canner has specialized in manufacturing can seamers since 1895, that’s over thirty-five years before the first beer cans hit the market. Our experience in the can packaging industry is unrivaled. We work with customers from around the world in pharma, food, beverage, industrial, and specialty manufacturing industries. We have experience in closing rigid, round containers with metal lids for thousands of applications. We understand all types of cans, whether they are composite (paperboard), metal (aluminum, steel, tin), or plastic. We also work with all kinds of metal lids (LEO, CDL, Dome, EZO, Peel Off, electrical receptacles, nozzles, etc.). Our vast knowledge about various canning products enables us to solve tough issues with innovative solutions.
Dixie Canner has used the same basic concept to hermetically seam cans from inception to date. We employ a mechanically driven closing system. Our two-step cam provides consistent seams every cycle. Unlike other companies that rely on pneumatics, servo motors, or human interaction, all of the Dixie Canner seamers are time-tested to provide guaranteed results. We manufacture our products from the highest quality stainless steel and aircraft-grade aluminum in-house. We strive for less than 0.001” tolerance on our parts. We assemble and test every seamer with your cans and calibrate to meet your can seam specifications before shipping. When your can seamer arrives – carefully unpack, mount it on a sturdy tabletop, plug it in, remove the last can we enclosed with the seamer, turn on the power and begin seaming your cans.
We have been in the canning industry for around a hundred and twenty-five years and are well acquainted with the processes involved in can packaging. Unfortunately, there is a significant knowledge gap throughout many sectors when it comes to can packaging. Over the last generation and a half can packaging was declining in popularity. But, approximately five years ago, can packaging has managed to make a remarkable comeback. We are very excited that cans have been recognized as a perfect packaging solution. The problem is that there is a generation and half-knowledge gap in can packaging.
We hear from customers all the time that they have no idea how can seams are achieved. For a clear understanding of what a can seam is and how it is formed, here’s a brief explanation:
The above diagram explains the double seam process and terminology. Proper maintenance and adjustment of a can seamer are required to achieve a hermetic seam. It is the responsibility of the owner of the machine to maintain it and to physically measure the can seam to ensure it is airtight.
We try to educate our customers to help them develop a quality control program to ensure optimum packaging integrity. This means that owners of can seamers must take responsibility to clean, maintain, adjust their can seamers as well as check the can seam measurements to make sure they are within the can manufacturers’ seam specifications. Our website www.dixiecanner.com and Youtube channel are full of information to help you understand can packaging better.
Service and support
Our can seamers are fast, precise, and tough! Similarly, they are easy to operate and maintain. We provide operation manuals and full-length videos on how to adjust and maintain our can seamers and for airlift models. Anyone who owns or operates a can seamer should take the time to read the manual and watch these videos before using the can seamer.
To offer our clients personalized support, Dixie Canner Co. operates from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM from Monday through Thursday. We are also available to speak with customers about questions or issues they may be facing. We schedule FaceTime (iPhone required) calls to diagnose and walk customers through quick fixes. FaceTime calls help to eliminate confusion, language barriers, etc. Most issues customers have can be diagnosed and fixed by them rather quickly. But, for this, they must watch the appropriate videos, go through the operator’s manual and own all the tools necessary to adjust and maintain the seamer before we schedule a FaceTime call.
Our customers have closed millions of cans with our seamers due to their durability and assured quality. At Dixie Canner Co., we backup all of our equipment against manufacturer’s defects with a one year warranty. But, if you adequately maintain our seamers, they are guaranteed to last a lifetime. Most food and beverage companies choose our seamers as we are honest and make right any issues that we are responsible for ASAP! This is why we have been in business for over a hundred and twenty-five years!
