EKL has design engineers that are experienced in designing tooling for all aspects of can and end tooling. We design tooling for all types of metal containers, including but not limited to beverage and food in both DWI and DRD processes, general line cans, shells, sanitary ends, etc. We offer R&D development for many customers, ranging from metal reduction in existing products or developing prototypes of entirely new products. We keep current on the latest software technologies to accelerate the design process. We can accept customer drawings in any format, however our primary software are Solidworks Professional and AutoCAD.
Our engineering department also designs and builds dies sets, machinery and other line equipment for the can industry. We provide engineering service to create spare parts for customer equipment that is no longer supported by an OEM.
