The Front End Gauge provides automated front end measurements on trimmed cans.
The exceptionally accurate and repeatable FES-4000 automatically rotates the can with the capability to perform 360° scan of wall thickness. At each position Can Height, Bottom Depth, Top-Wall and Mid-Wall Thickness are measured. Measurement results are shown on the TFT Touch screen and out-of-spec limits are clearly flagged in red allowing for immediate corrective action by line personnel. Data may be transferred directly into a data acquisition software.
Time savings thanks to automatic can rotation and automatic data transfer, as well as the possibility for multiple measurements at one time.
There are no change-parts required for multiple can heights and diameters.
Exceptionally accurate measurements with a resolution of 0.1 microns for wall thickness measurements.

Automatically adjusts to pre-configured measurement positions along the wall of the can
Top-wall height may be adjusted from 0 to 10mm
Wall thickness data may be graphed on-screen
Can height, top-wall, mid-wall and bottom depth are measured automatically
Only one calibration master (can height + bottom depth) needed for all cans
All can- and measurement-parameters are automatically adjusted and saved in the gauge-control
