Tinplate originated in Bohemia (located in the Czech Republic and Slovakia). Since ancient times, people there acquire the advanced metal technology and knowledge of how to use hydraulic in machinery manufacturing. From the 14th century, people there began to produce tinplate. For a long period, Bohemia has been a major producer of tinplate in the world. Then tinplate is mainly used to manufacture tableware and drink ware. From World War I, tinplate is used as iron containers (canned) by different countries.
