Developed by CMC-KUHNKE, our metal testing expert brand, the STG-4000 manual thickness gauge gives you completely operator independent measurement of cans for increased accuracy and consistency.
It is the first seam thickness gauge designed to closely duplicate hand micrometer readings up to a 603 diameter can (153mm). Our manual thickness gauge does a thorough job – it measures the seam thickness on two or three points at the can seam.
This innovative seam measuring gauge encounters less false operation than a seam micrometer and the measuring pressure and angle do not change.
The STG-4000 features a number of automatic data transfer options. Our seam thickness gauge will save you time in your process, ultimately saving you money.
The STG-4000 seam thickness gauge is a tried and tested machine that has enjoyed the best R&R and DR results in the industry.
Across the IP portfolio we make a wide range of seam thickness gauges and manual thickness gauges to test any aspect of any metal package.
For example, The SEAMscan SPC System is an affordable, high-resolution tool for double seam inspection and measurement with SPC Reporting.
If you want to measure the profile and countersink depth of a wide range of food, beverage and aerosol cans, then our CDG-3000 is the ideal manual gauge.
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.
Over the decades we’ve learnt a thing or two about how to build innovative yet reliable metal packaging testing devices. We like to share this knowledge with our customers and the wider industry.
