Imeta, the science of seaming
Those who believe in the existence of "difficult" seams obviously do not know imeta, which has been designing, producing and selling seaming chucks and rolls and complete format change equipment sets since 1964. Imeta is synonymous with ability and flexibility, extreme attention to details and complete willingness to satisfy the clients' requests. The company's products for can making, alimentary preserve and soft drink canning industries, are the result of in depth studies calling on extensive profile data banks which provide all necessary information to permit the ideal closure of any type of can.
A meticulous choice of materials, their treatment and a series of strict tests enrich and confirm the results of complex and accurate procedures. The trade mark imeta brings with it the ability to give a complete, wide and dynamic interpretation of the seaming machine sector, by studying and introducing into the market the technologies necessary to develop change parts for the various production types. Thanks to a custom-made service, imeta is also able to ensure suitable seaming for non-standard cans, thus enabling each client to improve the productivity of his plants. In addition, imeta is highly thought of for its ability in the rebuilding of obsolete machines and for its client assistance service, through which the company constantly strengthens the dialogue with its clients.
We could define the rolls and chucks manufactured by imeta as the concentration of technology, experience and versatility. Imeta guarantees its customers a complete and personal service, which includes a series of laboratory trials aimed at identifying the best solution for each case. In addition to a file of about 1000 different profiles and to the modern construction methods used, imeta employs advanced-technology materials such as high corrosion resistant steel, powder based sintered steel, special steel for specific uses and "stoody metal" for the fabrication of rolls to be used under maximum production conditions. In order to reduce machine shut-downs and to upgrade the quality of the seaming, imeta has adopted innovative surface coatings, such as titanium and chrome for the rolls, titanium and "spark harted" for the chucks.
Precise heat treatments and thorough testing allow us to supply the clients with components which are perfectly suited to each individual requirement, thus giving the best production results.
Imeta is specialized in the designing and manufacturing of all tools used in the production of cans and covers. The company therefore offers its clients complete dies to produce "open top" covers, beading sectors and noses, body flanging punches, spin-flanging tools, curling rings and sectors. Each component is the result of the most modern design methods and is constructed from top quality materials, such as special steels that minimize the service time and increase the productive output.
In addition to the already existing tools, imeta not only produces parts ex-novo following the clients' requests or the market trend, but also improves their production and operating characteristics. This means flexibility and a clear desire to find the best solution to any problem, and acting as a creative partner in the sector.
Imeta is specialized in the reconditioning of inefficient seamers through the replacing of obsolete and worn-out components, expressly constructed with extreme care. In this way the machine is renewed with respect to its own past and launched in the direction of solid production horizons. Convinced that clients require a complete service, imeta has produced a laboratory seamer to study and develop seaming profiles. Furthermore, a series of seaming process control instruments is available.
