Schuler has partnered up with Japanese specialists in Drawing and Wall Ironing (DWI) Bottle Cans, TMC. TMC is a market leader in machinery for the production of aluminum bottles and has developed a machine to form bottle necks (‘Bottle Necker’) with ambitious tool technology. They are defining the individual design of metal packaging with this.

The TMC-neckers are available with 40 to 56 forming stations. Independently of this, the maximum diameter of the bottles is 59 mm or 66 mm, with a maximum bottle length of up to 245 mm. The rate of production is up to 150 bottles per minute. TMC Bottle Neckers are in use all over the world. The company has further locations such as in Hong Kong and in the USA.

Bottle Cans production lines generally consist of a cupping press, a ‘Bodymaker’, a ‘Light Tester’, and a Bottle Necker, as well as cleaning, decorating and inspection equipment. Schuler is offering high-performance Cuppers and highly flexible ServoCupFormers as well as Bodymakers with complete mass balancing (BodyFormer) from its own production. Schuler is taking over commercial representation for TMC Bottle Neckers in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. Interested parties are thereby gaining a competent contact for the machinery and processes necessary for the production of drink bottles in these regions.

“TMC is bringing its know-how of tools and processes to the collaboration and we are bringing our experience of building metal packaging presses, as well as our global customer service,” says Schuler director Johannes Linden, who manages the Systems division. “Thus we are creating the ideal environment for our customers to successfully profit from the success of bottle cans in South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.”
