Nowadays, many industries have to distinguish themselves from other players in the market through innovative products and product designs. This also concerns aerosol cans. Therefore, suppliers seek solutions for producing individualized cans by embossing brand logos. Due to the almost fully exhausted deformation limits during the production of aerosol cans, this is hardly possible via conventional forming processes. As a high-speed technology, electromagnetic forming is a very promising method for overcoming the manufacturing limits of conventional processes. The paper shows a design for a tool for embossing aerosol cans. It gives insight into existing challenges and shows how to avoid or over-come them. An experimental verification proves the feasibility of the process and demonstrates that difficult forming operations are perfectly feasible with special forming processes like electromagnetic forming.
