Our End Profile Analyzer is an all-in-one can end measurement system, which combines laser profiling and mechanical gauging technologies to accurately measure the ends of your cans, whether it be easy open ends or sanitary ends.
The EPA – End Profile Analyzer is an all-in-one can end measurement system, which uses a combination of laser profiling and mechanical gauging technologies in order to measure the end.
It includes an accurate material thickness gauge, comes pre-calibrated, and offers measurements in under 1 second for fast and easy end inspection. Its automatic measurement system ensures repeatability and offers non-contact, non-destructive measurements for the analysis of your ends. Our can end analyzer can run a huge range of inspections and is also multilingual, with translations available in most languages.
Optional extras include an inner Bead Gauge and Chuck wall angle and countersink bottom radius measurements.
Incorrect values on can ends can often cause major issues at the seamer like deadheads, stuck ends, false seams, and bad double seams. See more in our glossary of can defects. Also, can end curl specifications are very difficult to measure without the End Profile Analyzer.
It also replaces “go-no-go” gauges (like pin fit, chuck fit) and destructive measurement methods for sanitary and easy open ends which are inaccurate, time consuming, and give different results for different operators. With laser profiling technology, the EPA is able to measure all important end specifications using a non-contact optical laser measurement system.
Offering an integrated reporting system that runs under Windows, this can end measurement solution provides an easy way to analyze your results. It provides its own reports and also interfaces with SPC systems, for simple data extraction.
