Canovation will focus on its new CanReseal technology at the show, which it claims represents the ‘future of cans’. The CanReseal end is a development that enables aluminium cans to be hermetically resealed after opening, with a screw cap.
The design has been under development for six years by Canovation. Several versions of CanReseal, that could eventually eliminate the use of the stay-on-tab score panel and rivet, have been tried. A number of patents are issued or pending in the US, and internationally, for a deeply-socketed easy-open end featuring internal side walls that have threads into which a cap is inserted to create the seal.
