IBO Internal Bake Oven


The Internal Bake Oven will complete the cure on the over varnish, ink, and inside coating on aluminum or steel cans.


ITS Internal Bake Ovens are designed to stand the test of time with rugged construction, superior performance, and ease of use in mind.  The ITS IBO will efficiently and effectively evacuate solvents from the cans as they enter the oven as well as while they are being processed inside the oven.  While in the oven, the cans will be supplied with proprietary supply nozzle and airflow technology that thoroughly purges the cans of solvent, efficiently heats the cans to allow for a proper cure, as well as provide superior can stability.   The IBO also features a PTFE coated fiberglass belt supported by a perforated slidebed which contributes to improved thermal efficiency, can stability, and reduced maintenance costs.

Many other options are available on ITS IBO’s such as nozzle height adjustment systems to raise and lower the supply nozzles during can height changes, safety railings and access ladders, cooling chambers, and more.

The synthetic conveyor belt helps maintain temperature uniformity and reduce energy consumption.

Can Washer System
