The Boxer will be on view in Metpack
The boxer uses a "contra" power drive.
- Two reciprocating rams on a single flywheel, with tool-packs at either end
- Driven by a single central motor and crankshaft
- Two cans from each stroke
Working lika a "contra engine', the rams operate in opposite directions; counteracting horizontal vibration force and creating an almost perfect dynamic balance.
Innovative designs means very little vibration and noise is created and there is no need for floor installations with deep foundations. Even at 350cpm, vibration is only 0.011; TEN TIMES LESS than conventional bodymakers. This is almost indiscernible.
