Page 7: Filling the cans
The packaging and the finished drink are combined by a rapid filling process. Every minute hundreds of cans pass along an automated production line and are filled with a precise amount of Coca-Cola.
As the cans move along the production line, they are seamed to include the ring pull end and produce the finished can. The ends are inspected to make sure they are smooth and do not have any gaps or leaks.
An individual code is stamped on the cans so that each one can be traced back to the point and time of production. A date code ensures product freshness. The cans now look like those you will see in the shops.
