Did You Know? 

The history of the Continental / Closetech can seaming machines dates back to the early 1900’s. That’s right…Continental Can Company started producing cans and can seamers made to last.  

There are still many of these machines in operation today because they refuse to give up. As long as they are well maintained and greased, all they need to wear parts replaced as needed. Here are a list of some of the can seaming machines still in operation today: 

  • Panama Closing Machines (S Machine) (1914)
  • 24-DS (1920s) 
  • 38-DS (1930s) 
  • 81-C (1950s) 
  • 220-VDS (1950s) 
  • 301-GCR (1930s) 
  • 304-CR (1940s)
