Draw and Wall Ironing (DWI) is an advanced metal can making process, which differs from traditional 3 piece manufacturing. The body and base are formed together in one piece via extrusion which offers tremendous potential for down-gauging, bringing both financial and environmental benefits. DWI is available for all markets and is particularly suited for the production of cans where the height is greater than the diameter and for large production runs of the same specification.
Ardagh currently operates four DWI facilities across Europe and has recently invested in two new DWI facilities in the USA as part of a long-term agreement with ConAgra Foods.
