Progression Gauge for beverage end measurement

ES8002

automatic, non-contact measurement of features on beverage ends


The ES8002 Progression Gauge for converted beverage end measurement is based on a completely redesigned gauging platform. The gauge sets new standards for speed and repeatability. It is automatically fed from three loading draws which easily accept interchangeable end sizes. Non-contact sensors above and below the end then measure each stage of the conversion process, including material thickness, in very fine detail, helping to confirm that every progression is accurately formed. Coloured and even black finishes do not affect the results.

  • BENEFITS
  • Best in class R&R
  • Fast: measure 4 progressions from a press lane in only 5 minutes
  • 113 to 209 ( 46 mm to 65 mm ) —  automatic adjustment
  • Colored and black beverage ends measured
  • Full traceability to press, lane, rotation and time when sample is taken
  • Fully self-checking

Extend Tooling Life

Tooling life can now be monitored more consistently, reducing annual tooling costs and unnecessary stops for adjustment.

Improve product quality

The compiled test results present a very clear, accurate and comprehensive visualization of the features measured. If preset limits are reached, the gauge gives immediate warning via the operator screen and the warning beacon. Results are classified using the customer’s preset limits, displayed, sent over the network and printed out.
