Also available in the "Master Series" FULLY AUTOMATIC VERSION

The SI6800 Front End Gauge / Trimmed Can Gauge measures can height, mid and top side wall thickness, and dome depth on un-necked, trimmed beverage cans. The gauge uses well-proven technology that eliminates all operator influence on the results.

  • BENEFITS
  • Automatic measurement of critical features
  • Multiple can sizes with tool-free change parts
  • No operator influence on results
  • Well proven technology
  • Excellent R&R
  • Constant self monitoring/self calibrating
  • Side wall modelling to find the transition point

Multiple can sizes

Cans with different can diameters can be measured with quick change, tool-free change parts. Different can heights need no change parts. So several standard can sizes and shapes can easily and quickly be tested with a single gauge.

Self monitoring, self calibrating

Every measurement for every batch is automatically qualified using a NAMAS approved setting master. The gauge constantly monitors its own performance and recalibrates if drift is detected.

Side wall modelling

Side wall thickness measurements can be made at multiple locations (to 40 mm from the bottom of the can) with 255 maximum total readings, including up to 12 vertical and numerous radial positions.This allows modelling of side wall thickness to find the transition point.
