Shell Gauge for EOE beverage and food end measurement


non-contact measurement and profiling of Easy OPen beverage and food shells

Add a second gauge inside the same cabinet

ES8000 Gauging Platform

The hardware is built on a common platform (ES8000) with the Sencon EOE Progression Gauge, which makes it easy for customers to upgrade at any time by adding a second gauging function inside the same cabinet. This saves floor space and costs less than investing in two separate gauges. A combined Shell and Progression Gauge can also be specified at the time of purchase.

  • Best in class R&R
  • Grain orientation as standard feature (no time penalty)
  • 4 points measured in 28 seconds per shell, 8 points in 32 seconds per shell
  • Multisize: 46 mm to 93 mm  (113 to 307) diameter shells handled with fully automatic adjustment
  • All current shell types supported
  • Black, colored, and decorated shells accepted

The Shell Gauge measures the widest range of Easy Open beverage and food shell diameters in the fastest time without the need for change parts or adjustment. A shell is optically scanned on both sides for any given position in just one second. Each shell is automatically orientated to the direction of the grain regardless of the coating type or decoration, and with no time penalty.

Black and colored shells are supported. Measurement of all features is supported on all current shell profiles. Results can be linked to individual shells and presses, with the ability to configure any number of presses. Different size batches can be set up via three infeed drawers, which can be loaded with pre-loaded, color coded cartridges while the gauge is running.
