Bill details the engineering choices underlying the design of a beverage can He explains why it is cylindrical, outlines the manufacturing steps needed to created the can, notes why the can narrows near it lid, show close ups of the double-seam that hold the lid on, and details the complex operation of the tab that opens the can.

  • You know you're a good teacher when you can make something as seemingly mundane as the aluminum can into one of the more captivating videos I've ever seen. Almost everybody, including I would say most instructors, struggle to keep explanations in layman's terms without dumbing it down, as almost none of us speak the internal language of whatever industry is presented.

  • I remember as a child when you had to have a can opener to open a soda can, or a beer can. Then came the pull off tab. And then the tab we use now. Great video. Explains things very well. Now I understand how the can keeps it seal.

  • I am old enough to remember when the ring pulls were standard. They came in two varieties, at least in the UK - one with the little flanges for leverage either side of the rivet - as shown herer - and one without. The former were always more popular: after pulling them off the can, the ring could be broken from the tab, and then you had a great little toy. The tab was a spring, and the ring was a miniature frisbee which could be launched by fitting one end of it in one of the slots between a lever flange and the rivet, pulling it back and releasing it. I get that the tabs are a better design, but they are a lot less fun.

For some reason, the slotted design was almost exclusively used in beer cans. Luckily they were plentily available in form of steet litter for us little rascals. ;)

Bill gives just enough detail spreads out with diagrams and animations to keep the interest.

  • 8:43 I remember large cans (upwards of 40 or even 64oz) containing milk or hawaiian punch. This was before those 64 oz (later 2L) plastic bottles appeared. Those had to be opened with that triangular punch tool as shown. I remember seeing lots of pull tabs out in city parks, those things were blight. The stay-on-can openers started around 1980. The big cans still exist but are niche now.

  • Absolutely a design masterpiece. The opener alone is close to brilliant. I’m old enough to remember the pull tabs that littered beaches and wooded areas that cut feet and were a health hazard. The opener that doesn’t detach unless with concerted effort is by itself is fantastic. And it turns to allows a straw to fit! It’s a miracle of engineering.

  • The lever is absolutely ingenious! It took me a while to understand the implications but oh once I did it made so much sense! The fact that you're essentially opening the can not by pressing in the tab but by drawing out the pin getting help from the pressure to shear an opening that lets out the pressure and then you push the metal tab in, is an absolutely amazing engineering solution and I have never realized it!

  • The double seal was invented by 'mechanical' workers in Pittsburgh for sealing duct-work for heating and air conditioning and is called a Pittsburgh bend. They are hard to make by hand, but in the olden days that's what you did. I have a can 'seamer' made for #10 cans that applies the same bend with 2 actions, a push and a pull.

  • Great video! I'm so dang old, I remember every generation of beverage can demonstrated here, including the flat top that required the use of a can opener. And, there were mostly aluminum cans that had a steel seam. PSAs of the day for recycling included this distinction of a seamless side, as the seamed ones were not considered (as easily) recyclable and had to be dealt with separately. You missed a chance to throw in a few seconds of Jimmy Buffett when describing the early pop-tops. But, I guess that wouldn't fit your format very well, heh. The pull tabs were sometimes linked together by hand to make a useless chain, or collected in a container, as ways to avoid just tossing them carelessly. The glass deposit bottle was so much better than aluminum in so many ways. Sad that in most places they're no longer used. Even the uncommon glass bottles are not deposit bottles in most places now. I used to make pocket money when I was a kid, by scouring the roadside for deposit bottles. At 5¢ a pop, I could buy a large soda AND a small bag of chips for five returned bottles, plus one for the deposit. But, no doubt the aluminum can is cheaper to ship.

    • @Evin Chester You and I were far from the only kids that did this. That's why the bottle laws made sense. I can't understand why most areas have abandoned the practice. But then, how many of today's youth would find scouring roadsides to be worthwhile? Maybe if the deposit was 25¢ they would. Inflation.

    • And I thought I was the only kid who looked for bottles people had tossed so I could buy candy. And I'm sure you will remember when it was a penny a piece. Mind you l live in Texas. Back when I was a kid I quickly figured out that at .10 cents you had to pay sales tax. But if you bought 9 pieces, you didn't. Then with the penny left over you could get one more and not have to pay the sales tax.

There was a small circular tab you had to push in to release the pressure and create an air vent before pushing in the bigger tab to drink from. But as a kid sometimes it was really hard to press that air vent tab, it left indents in your fingertips.

    • I noticed that a while ago and while it doesn't overly concern me I'm surprised there hasn't been a solution for such a mass manufactured product

    • What if the sphere also had the dome shape in the bottom though? Then they would stack, sit up right, and you could caddy corner them and get probably a 80%+ packing volume

  • This video was recommended to me multiple times, but each time I thought I'll watch later. And now, I'm regretting why didn't I watch it earlier. So well made and explained. It is a masterpiece, and a treat to watch.

  • Absolutely fascinating. The thing that is missing is the iconic shape of a certain cola.

  • I always watch this and the "how to turn a sphere outside-in" video every now and then, is always interesting and entertaining.

    • Not 'his', but 'their'. He has an entire production team and a dedicated co-writer for these texts. Well made, indeed, but a team product. ;-)

  • I was really surprised that he left out one of the most impressive engineering aspects of the can - when you leave the can in extreme temperatures, e.g. the freezer, the top and the bottom are designed to expand (bulge outward) so that the can doesn’t just explode. This is another reason for making the can cylindrical - so that it’s easier to direct that extra pressure into a specific direction (into the top or bottom of the can, i.e. if the can were spherical, the extra pressure would expand the can in all directions).

  • Thanks for the informative invention of the Can. Did you ever done a video on different rubber and it processes and applications?
