  • Publication number: 20190299273
    Abstract: A bottle-shaped can in which a cap can be mounted on a neck portion without damaging slits and bridges. An annular bead comprises a diametrically largest portion, an upper inclined surface, and a lower inclined surface. An angle of inclination of the upper inclined surface is narrower than that of the lower inclined surface. A thread ridge comprises an incomplete thread portion in which a groove depth is shallower than an average groove depth of the thread ridge, and the incomplete thread portion is formed at one end of the thread ridge on the upper inclined surface at least partially. An angle of inclination of a lower wall of the thread ridge w is greater than that of the upper inclined surface so that a protruding corner is formed. The slits and the bridges are situated at a level lower than the protruding corner.

  • Publication number: 20190248532
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method for accurately processing a neck portion of a bottle-shaped can without changing a posture of the can. An inner tool is inserted into the neck portion from the bottom of a can body to form a stepped portion, and comprises a first forming section having a diameter smaller than an inner diameter of a neck portion. An outer tool comprises a second forming section that is opposed to the inner tool. The stepped portion is formed on the neck portion by sandwiching the neck portion by the first forming section and the second forming section. The inner tool further comprises a holding member that is situated coaxially with the can body to be contacted to an inner surface of the can body. The holding member is attached to the inner tool while being allowed to move in a radial direction together with the can body.
