Versatile double seam inspection solution ideal for beverage or metal packaging testing. The AUTO-XTS offers seam thickness, countersink depth, seam height, body hook testing and much more.  


Double seam inspection with the Auto-XTS

The AUTO-XTS is a fully-automated, on-line or stand-alone measurement system that provides non-destructive, complete double seam inspection for beverage fillers and metal cans. The CMC-KUHNKE AUTO-XTS will increase the accuracy and speed of your testing and inspection processes and reduce spoilage, saving you time and money.  

X-ray imagine with the Auto-XTS

This test and inspection solution combines the internal X-ray seam measurements of the SEAMscan XTS with a second station for external measurements into one robust unit, providing faster inspection results, and reduced labor costs. The proven, patented technology of our zero-waste solution lets you measure cans in a fraction of the time.  

Versatile testing

The AUTO-XTS is a versatile testing unit that offers excellent safety features. Its automated process protects users from seam saws, metalburrs or seam teardowns. 

The AUTO-XTS offers accurate double seam measurement, allowing you to assess: seam thickness, countersink depth, seam height, body hook, cover hook, overlap, seam gap, % body hook butting and wrinkle rating (% tightness). 

How the AUTO-XTS works

A robot handling system moves a complete range of filled beverage cans through the measurement stations. 

1. Countersink Depth & Seam Thickness Measurement 

Station #1: The can is automatically carried to Station #1 for measurement of Countersink Depth and Seam Thickness using CMC-KUHNKE’s TSG Gauge series. Measurements are made in up to 36 locations around the can. 

2. X-Ray Imaging 

Station #2: Patented XTS technology uses safe, low-power X-ray imaging to measure internal parameters of the seam, including tightness. The content is not affected by the X-ray. 

3. Accept or Reject Cans 

Station #3: A convenient out-feed. Once the double seam inspection has been completed, the cans are placed in order by head number either onto a conveyor for online systems, or into a carrying basket for manually loaded systems.

The Problem

With rising pressures on canneries and can makers to increase productivity, minimize both changeover time and unplanned stops – while ensuring higher quality closures – accurate seamer setup is vital.  

The Solution

Our customer needed a reliable instrument to speed up their seamer changeovers. We presented the ‘perfect’ solution in the Quality By Vision Clearance Gauge. It takes the guesswork out of seamer setup, improves seam integrity, increases uptime and rapidly makes changeovers. 

The Result

A spokesperson for industry-leading metal packaging  manufacturer Caniel said: “The team at Industrial Physics identified the perfect solution for our testing requirements and this has been a huge benefit for us.”
