Theoretical Analysis of First Sealing of Elliptical Can
The force generated in and required for the sealing process of the first seal of elliptical cans was analyzed based on the energy conservation theory, corresponding formulas describing the sealing-force were derived, and the factors affecting the sealing-force were discussed. This provides a theoretical basis for the design and optimization of the roller curve as well as for further study and calculation of forces in the sealing process of various abnormally shaped cans.
