HYBRID BOTTOM FORMER
MAKES US UNIQUE.
As speeds increase and can stocks get thinner, consistent clamping pressure becomes more critical. Pride’s Hybrid Bottom Former utilizes the largest air chamber behind the piston for more consistent force continuing Pride’s lead in bottom former technology for downgauging material and reducing split domes.

REDUCED SPLIT DOMES.
Consistent clamp ring force during doming controls material flow to form wrinkle-free chimes while reducing split domes.
SOFTER DONUT SPRINGS.
CONSISTENT DOME DEPTHS.
Pride’s long high-mass springs accomodate changes in overtravel as bodymaker speeds change to reduce the pinching that can cause split domes.
FOUR CHOICES OF FORCE.
Increases buckle strength for larger beverage cans or is used for food cans to maintain panel depth.
6,800 – 9,000
Optimizes dome depth at any speed while reducing shock.
5,000 – 7,100
This lower force spring engages the punch before the dynamic stretch phase, helping the ram turn and reducing ram whip.
3,200 – 5,200
Our lowest force donut spring for smaller diameter cans and thinner materials.
2,400 – 4,500
