Quality By Vision SEAMetal HD: Double Seam Inspection for Food Cans

High Definition Double Seam Scope for Food Cans


NEW! SEAMetal Version 6 for Windows 10

Many companies believe that increasing the number of double seam measurements is the best solution in ensuring their seams are hermetically vacuum sealed. Increasing the rate and number of double-seam measurements is not the solution. After all, checking more cans won’t improve productivity, it will just locate problems more frequently – without improving a single can. That’s why advanced, high-accuracy, fast and repeatable seam scopes are needed now more than ever.

Now with SEAM doctor to help analyze and solve seaming issues discovered through the software!

SEAMetal HD is the third generation of double seam vision systems by Quality By Vision. Quality By Vision has been continuously improving and developing this system since 1993, ever since the world’s first automatic double seam scope: SEAMetal 9000X has been introduced.

Our SEAMetal HD double seam software is easy to learn and the most user-friendly in the industry. Years of continual improvements have allowed us to introduce the first integrated High-Definition sensor for double seam inspection. This provides an unprecedented look at the double seam. You can now get a sharper, clearer image which gives a much more accurate and repeatable measurement!

The system runs under Windows operating systems (including Windows 10) and connects to the computer using USB 2 (or higher).

In third-party customer GR&R testing, this system was found to have a “world-class” GR&R rating!

The software measures: Body thickness, Cover thickness, Seam thickness, Seam length (seam height), Body Hook, Cover Hook, Wrinkle (Tightness), Seam Gap, Countersink, Body Hook Butting, Cover Hook Butting, Overlap, Overlap %, (Countersink – Length), Vee, and many more. The software also allows for 5 standards (including minimum, maximum, nominal, and amber = Unacceptable minimum and maximum).

Each measurement can be made from the high-definition sensor, by keyboard, or imported from an external mechanical gauge. The software provides easy-to-understand and free SPC statistics graphs. Statistics calculations include: Average, standard deviation, six sigma graphs, CP, CPK, Kurtosis, Skewness as well as UCL and LCL.

The software is touch friendly, you can zoom, pan, and move lines with a simple gesture. The software will let you customize reports, including attaching SPC graphs and seam images to your reports. Everything you need is in one simple package!

Success Stories

The problem

Canning production line problems are time consuming and costly. At some point many food and beverage companies encounter an issue with the seams of their cans, as was the case for a major brewery we work with.

The solution

Our customer needed a reliable machine to measure everything from seam thickness, height and gap through to countersink depth and overlap. The SEAMscan SPC System, an affordable, high-resolution tool for double seam inspection and measurement, solved their problem.

The result

‍Gicole Patterson of Blues City Brewery said:


“We have experienced very minimal downtime due to their (the IP technical support team’s) dedication! I can’t express enough how happy I am with their support!”
