dome reform gauge
Systems that only measure a few points on the dome reform feature on beverage cans cannot give enough information to be sure that it has been reformed correctly all round. Tilt measurement will also be inadequate and may even be missed completely. DRG carries out a continuous 360scan of the dome, giving fully comprehensive data about the formation of the feature, including the concentricity of the reform diameter relative to the stand. It also gives clear visualization of any eccentricity or anomalies which may have occurred.
The comprehensive measurements also reveal the diameter of the reform groove and its height from the base of the stand, allowing the tooling to be set to produce the best quality cans. The system also displays the dome reform diameter at a user specified height to enable correlation of measurements to other gauging systems.
Capable of achieving world class R&R (Repeatability and Reproducibility), the gauge gives results that can be trusted. The DRG also automatically measures its own reference piece for every can tested, ensuring complete reliability.
