Cans and Ends

Container Machinery – since 1974

Container Machinery Corporation was originally founded to represent European manufacturers of can making and food processing equipment in North America. In the 1980s, CMC developed SEAMscan, the double seam inspection system. This award winning quality assurance product ushered in the development of many other can inspection gauges and testers for the metal packaging industry. In 2002, the German Manfred Kuhnke Company was acquired, leading Container Machinery Corporation to spin-off it’s can measurement division to become CMC-KUHNKE.

Today, the Container Machinery companies are a progressive group at the leading edge of container manufacturing. Through customer-driven design and improvement, the Container Machinery companies provide state-of-the-art products and services on a global scale.
