The Canco #1 Western Semi-Automatic Closing Machine
The #1 Western was originally developed to fill the need for an up-to-date semi-automatic closing machine with a wide range and inexpensive change parts. It will close either double-seamed or single-seamed round cans.
Pegasus is rebuilding these older can seamers with the best practice of high grade manufacturing and thoroughly testing them before they leave the factory. If properly lubricated, oiled and adjusted these machines can give a long and satisfactory service.
The #1 Western has two automatic features: an automatic Can Lift for raising cans onto the Chuck and an automatic Cover Feed for delivering covers from a stack to the Seaming Head. These two features combine to give the machine a high speed coupled with the hightest degree of safety. The effort on the operator's part is reduced to a minumum, making for a sustained high output. Furthermore it is furnished with Cover Feed unless otherwise specified. This reduces output about 30%. The machine shown on this webpage is a #1 Western that has been modified to operate as a vacuum seamer. To do this the cover feed section had to be removed.
The #1 Western has an unusually wide range both for height and diameter, and the arrangements for changing to different sizes and for making proper adjustments are simple, making change-overs possible several times a day with little downtime.
The Machine is fitted with an individual motor drive. A V-Belt Drive is standard for this purpose. A portable unit may be furnished when desired. this unit consistes of 4 roller casters with brackets that are easily applied or removed at any time. The motor drive and the caster make the #1 Western and independent and self-contained machine that can be placed in any convenient location in a cannery. This can seamer is especially cost effective for the new entrepreneur.
