This invention relates to improvements in then folding same, and then forming the sides
metal closures and caps for jars, bottles and the from the cut out blank.
It is desirable in the forming of the cap to
like of the type where the closure is hermetically
sealed to the container through the medium of 'emboss or raise the fold H at one point slightly,
preferably near the edge of the cap to permit
5 a rubber gasket or the like, and normally the
cap or ‘closure rests upon the container under the insertion of a tool of some kind to distort
pressure caused by the introduction of a vacuum the fold‘ II "when the cap is to be removed.
The reference numeral ll indicates a rubber
into the container or otherwise.
A particular object of this invention is‘ the " gasket, by which the cap is hermetically sealed
