A seamer that is perfectly tailored to the Krones can filler
Can seamer in hygienic design
Krones integrated its many years of experience in the filling and capping technology sectors in the Modulseam. The key factor: the can seamer is precisely designed to complement the Modulfill VFS-C filler – and therefore works hand in hand with it.

Central media supply
All media are centrally connected via the filler valve manifold; also the internal control and distribution of the media is part of the filler-seamer block. This means that no separate interfaces are required on the can seamer.
Hygiene plays a central role: The entire seamer area including components is separated from the drive area. Cables and supply hoses are located outside the process area, and all components in the process area itself are made of stainless steel. An inclined table top ensures that the media can drain off in a targeted manner, and foam cleaning of all gas channels is also possible.
The open design of the seamer allows excellent accessibility during type change-overs or in case of maintenance.
Numerous features ensure that the change-over to new sizes or types is quick and requires little manual intervention:
The change-over from steel to aluminium cans is possible in only a short time thanks to the quickly adjustable quick-set seaming cam: The settings are reproducible and the change can be made in less than five minutes.
Moreover, thanks to a system for automatic height adjustment, it takes only a few steps to change over to other container sizes. Full parameter management and height adjustment of the entire block is done via the filler's HMI, including, for example, the position of the bubble breaker.
Thanks to the quick adjustment system of the guide rails on the transfer chain, no manual adjustment work is necessary here either.
