CMC-KUHNKE Bead/Height/Flange Gauge

The Semi-Automated BHF-3000 combination gauge provides objective, accurate and repeatable measurements on food cans with no operator influence. 


Brought to you by CMC-KUHNKE, our specialist metal inspection brand, this accurate combination gauge is the ideal “end of the line” gauge. 

The BHF-3000 is an operator-independent measurement system. The bead/height/flange combination gauge combines the functions of three essential gauges for objective, accurate and repeatable measurements. 

Invest in a versatile combination gauge that brings multiple essential measurement systems into one. You save time and money while freeing up workplace or laboratory space.  

Multi-testing combination gauge perfection   

Our combination gauges automatically and accurately measure bead depth, can height and flange width, with the option of roll bead measurement and bead profile. You can take up to 36 measurements around the can as this innovative combination gauge rotates it effortlessly for you.  

A rugged, reliable combination gauge   

With its solid, fixture-based design, v-block positioner and automatic operation you can have complete confidence in the measurements you take with the BHF-3000 combination gauge. It takes away any operator influence problems – you don’t need any quality assurance experience to get top results.  

A combination gauge that talks your language  

Our combination gauge can be set to English, German, Spanish and Chinese, with other languages available upon request.  

Combination gauge inspection options 

Across the Industrial Physics portfolio we have plenty of measuring devices that can measure bead depth or bead profile like the combination gauge. Why not take a look at the 360° Can Inspection from Eagle Vision Systems? Or for something more simplistic for your bead profile or bead depth testing, there’s the Flange Width Gauge or the Finished Can Gauge, both from CMC KUHNKE.  

A combination of combination gauge blogs

We’re always pleased to share the knowledge we’ve gained over several decades of working with combination gauges and can inspection equipment.  

First up, here you can access our exclusive webinar Industrial Physics’ Guide to Seam Inspection as we speak to our Global Product Line Director – one of the world’s finest minds when it comes to metal packaging! 

Then if you want to learn how Caniel, a leading food and aerosol canmaker, called on us to increase the efficiency of their canning line and reduce downtime, then read this case study.  

Finally, we publish lots of blogs and articles through the knowledgebase section of our website. For example, we have this piece that responds to some of the can seam inspection FAQs. Or maybe this one that delves into how to measure a double seam would be more useful?

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.”
