Outside Bake Oven (OBO) with VACTRANS®
The Outside Bake Oven (OBO) is designed to cure external coatings onto steel or aluminum cans at speeds up to 3,000 CPM.
The International Thermal Systems VACTRANS® offers the only vibration free vacuum-loading system in the industry.
A proprietary dual-lane oven configuration to run two decorators/coaters simultaneously is available.
The VACTRANS® is a vacuum loading device that transfers cans from an infeed conveyor to the entrance of a cure oven. When in production, the cans will actually have a printed label on the outside and cannot touch each other, otherwise the label will be damaged and the cans could stick together as they pass through the curing oven. Can stability and repeatability of being able to transfer the cans is critical to this operation.
