Trial Manufacture of Automatic Can Press Equipment With Sorting Function
By the spread of vending machines, the amount of consumption of steel can, aluminum can, PET bottle, and a bottle has increased. It is necessary to sort out them in order for these canses to reuse. The author manufactured the automatic can press machine which used two Clinoids in last year. In the case of aluminum can, can pressure machine was able to push aluminum can easily. In the case of steel can, the taste side of a steel can is made from aluminum. However, the another side is made from steel. Since the taste side is flexible because of this reason, a taste side is pushed early. When a steel can is pressed using two Clinoids, the balance of power is bad and cannot press a steel can well. In this paper, the large oil pressure cylinder of the power of pushing a press board was used for the press part. If the vessel of a drink is put in into a can pressure machine, can pressure machine, steel can, aluminum can, PET bottle, a bottle, etc. will be classified automatically. The capacity of a vessel can be made small by the pressure machine. Moreover, a PET bottle, a bottle, etc. are received in a recovery box without pressing. Since the author manufactured the can press machine which has a sorting function, author reports the manufacture process and a situation of operation.
