Double Seam Inspection (Seam Thickness, Countersink Depth, Seam Height, Body Hook, Cover Hook, Overlap, Seam Gap, % Body Hook Butting) Wrinkle Rating (% Tightness) with option of Can Height.
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. The fully-automated AUTO-XTS 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.
A robot handling system moves a complete range of filled beverage cans through the measurement stations.
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.
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.
Station #3: Measuring the height of the can.
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.
