The characteristics of aluminum containers provide protection against light, moisture, oxygen and various other contaminants. Combined with ease of handling and relative cost-effectiveness, deployment of aluminum cans and bottles has increased across industry sectors including soft drinks, beer, energy drinks, juice, food and wine.
Innovations in aluminum such as light-weighting and the increased availability of various shapes and sizes of containers has affected the complexity of processing and handling.
Smart in-line sensors can be used to prevent the types of damage most common in aluminum cans and are an invaluable tool in research and development projects.
