Cupping Press Coil Lubrication System


  • Lubrication precision for can makers!

    Designed specifically for the can making industry, the Unist coil lubrication system gives can makers precise control over the application of their cupping lubricants. The patented internally-fed roller design, combined with the programmable SPR-2000 controller, has proven itself capable of applying fluids in quantities as low as 20 mg/ft²(215 mg/m²). This level of control, combined with high reliability, provides years of exceptional performance with minimal maintenance.

    • Reliable fluid application
    • Compatible with a wide variety of fluids
    • Rollers last much longer than felt pads
    • Complete control of application across top and bottom of coil
    • Low maintenance - reduced down time

  • Full-featured monitoring

    The SPR-2000 provides full-featured monitoring of critical parameters such as fluid level, pressure and flow (optional sensors are required) and alerts users with an audible alarm and red LED. An external alarm relay can also be wired directly to a press control.
