Dome Reform Gauge
complete and detailed non-contact measurement of dome reform parameters on beverage cans
- Complete profiling of the dome reform feature
- World class repeatability (R&R)
- Optimize tool setup
- Easy to use
- Low maintenance
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 360° scan 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.
Measurements include tilt and concentricity relative to the stand, plus visualization of any eccentricity.
