Specifications

Lab measurements equipment is highly accurate, but based on sampling a selection of the entire production. Because of that defective seams can be detected too late and inconsistently. Or worse; by the customer.

The in-line Seam Inspection module inspects the complete seam around the can. The module is positioned in-line to inspect 100% of the produced cans, non-destructively. Various can sizes and can shapes are inspected without any product handling. The inspection is available for high line speeds.
