Aluminium beverage can draining at the Oettinger Brewery

Draining and subsequent pressing of returnable cans destroys the deposit seal. This ensures that the cans can be devaluated and further prevents misuse.


"The compacted products can be handed over to recycling companies. In this way, customers can save on expensive disposal costs."

Sustainable and efficient: can emptying and pressing

One of the most innovative ideas of our society is the food can, which makes our food last longer and protects it from premature perishing. Due to its recycling potential, the metal can is a particularly timely form of packaging.

With WEIMA, you can dewater and compress all types of filled or unfilled tin metal packaging in the form of aluminium and tin cans in the shortest possible time. We cover a wide variety of sizes and shapes.

In addition to the classic 330 ml beverage cans (of course also sleek can), WEIMA can presses can also easily dewater and compress 250 ml, 500 ml, resealable 485 ml, or whole 1 and 5 liter barrels – all in just one process step. Hydraulic presses from WEIMA can be loaded with individual aluminium cans or even whole trays.

Cylindrical cans made of steel or tinplate with seamed lids, which are used as food preserves and can be stacked can easily be drained and compressed with WEIMA machinery. Even including for variants with or without SRP tear-off lids in a wide range of dimensions.


Durable machine technology – even with foreign materials

Impurities such as swing tops, labels, broken glass or stones are simply pressed with the hydraulic drainage presses of the Recycling series from WEIMA.


Draining at high speed

Regarding the protection of the environment, efficient dewatering is gaining more and more importance worldwide. With the WEIMA E.200 machine, plastic bags with aluminum coating filled with fruit juice can be easily and quickly drained and compressed.
