If you work with aluminum or steel cans, the SEAMscan XTS III will increase the accuracy of your double seam inspection testing, reduce spoilage, and save you time and money. 


Brought to you by CMC-Kuhnke, our world-leading canning inspection company, this non-destructive inspection machine provides fast, automatic results.  

It’s a powerful double seam inspection tool that will accurately measure the double seam of any round can (seam height, body hook, cover hook, overlap, seam gap, and % body hook butting). You’ll soon identify any welds, dimples or welts in your metals with our innovative wrinkle rating (% tightness) technology.  

This third generation of our popular SEAMscan XTS double seam inspection equipment is a stand-alone measurement system. The accurate gauge performs fast cross-sectional measurements and 360° tightness scans that reduce your labor costs. 

Safe, fast and precise double seam inspection  

When you use the SEAMscan XTS III double seam inspection tool you’ll be protected by excellent X-Ray-shielding (TÜV Rheinland tested and certified to < 0.1 mSv per year).  

This latest model features improved handling and increased versatility and precision, enabled by new generation image processing.  

PC friendly double seam inspection equipment

It’s so easy to download your double seam inspection results to a PC for further analysis. You only need the power cable supplied – there’s no external connections required.  

Our double seam inspection equipment works seamlessly with Visionary QC™ SPC Software and you can track trends and statistics with SPC graphs. 

Double seam inspection drainage

The SEAMscan XTS III has added drainage for easy cleaning and excellent accessibility (270°) for maintenance.

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.”
