AUTO ENAMEL RATER
A module of the Master Series gauges
flexible gauging clusters
Reduced cost of ownership
This fully automatic enamel rater constantly checks its own operation to ensure that tests are accurate and reliable. Electrolyte concentration, fill level, and many other variables are continuously monitored, so you can rest assured that the same reliable test quality is maintained day and night. With this test consistency, any trends or problems are spotted instantly and corrective action can be taken before excessive HFIs or scrap are generated.
The new Enamel Master is the result of a redesign project which drew on more than ten years experience of building and maintaining the most successful range of automatic enamel raters in the industry. The result is an eminently durable gauging system that is ready to accept virtually any 2pc beverage can without change parts. The gauge is ready for any can size change you may need.
Mechanical pumps and electric motors have been replaced with an innovative, maintenance-free electrolyte handling system to reduce the cost of ownership.

cost Saving Benefits / Increased Efficiency
This fully automatic gauge allows operator time to be used on more productive and profitable tasks by relieving operators of the labor intensive enamel rating / coating porosity test .
In many cases labor reductions may be possible .
The automatic enamel rater tests each can for lacquer integrity in a precise and repeatable way, free from operator bias and fallibility. So problems and trends are spotted instantly and appropriate action can be undertaken immediately, thus improving both quality and production efficiency.
Better Process Control
Reliable, accurate porosity information is directly interpreted on a continuous basis. The Master Series enamel rater gives on screen warning at the first sign of any problem.
Immediate Availability of Data
Operators and supervisors benefit from immediate access to enamel rating test data. Data can also be linked into the factory’s process management system.
By relating sampling rates to production levels and previous results, enamel rating test frequencies can be set to match optimum output efficiency. Lacquer integrity checks are always made on time with immediate action, thus reducing the potential for manufacturing out-of-specification cans.
