Evergreen Can

In many ways, a can is something special. It serves as packaging method for the preservation and trade of food, it is tied behind wedding cars, or used by children as a tin-can telephone. Cans are light and practical, and opening is always easy.

As a sensor manufacturer with over 40 years of experience in the development and production of sensors, we have set ourselves the goal of developing high performance and and cost-optimised sensors for the manufacturing and filling processes for cans. These special sensors are used throughout the world by many manufacturers of metal packaging for the food and beverage industry as well as for non-food products such as paint, hairspray or batteries.

More than two decades ago, our first can line sensor based on the inductive principle, which controls the speed and feed of cans in the line, was developed at the Elmshorn location. In the course of time Proxitron developed the first can line sensor with Teach-In function, which automatically adjusts to the surrounding conditions. „Teach-In and forget“ has been the motto ever since. Take a look at the powerful functions of our products and our accessories for the adaptation of Proxitron products and accessories in the manufacturing process of two-piece or three-piece cans.
