Back End Gauge (benchtop version)



Sencon advantages

  • More critical features measured
  • Greatly improved R&R - better process control
  • Well proven non-contact technology
  • Multiple can sizes with tool-free insert
  • No mechanical transducers - fewer wear parts
  • Minimal maintenance - very low lifetime costs

Flange angle and seaming clearance measured as standard with CAN-SCAN™ technology

Also available in the "Master Series" FULLY AUTOMATIC GAUGE VERSION

This gauge is also used on beverage filling lines to check key dimensions of incoming finished cans


More Critical Finished Can Features Measured

Back End Can / Finished Can Dimensions

Standard Measurements

  • A. Can Height
  • B. Flange Width
  • C. Plug Diameter
  • D. Dome Depth
  • E. Flange Angle
  • J. Seaming Clearance

Base Reform Measurements (cost option)

  • F. Reform Diameter
  • G. Reform Height
  • H. Minimum Stand Diameter

Improved R&R

Non-contact measurement reduces gauge variability which helps to improves process capability (CPk). This is increasingly demanded as cans become lighter, lines get faster, and product designs become more diverse.

Lower Costs

The system uses no mechanical transducers, so there is almost no maintenance required and running costs are very low.

Additional Measurements

More critical features can be measured with Sencon's unique CAN-SCAN™ optical technology, such as the Flange Angle and Seaming Clearance, which have always been part of the can specification but could not be reliably and repeatbaly measured until now. A Base Reform measurement option may be added at any time. All measurements are made simultaneously, so the additional module does not increase testing time.

Multiple Can Sizes

The SI6500 Back End Gauge / Finished Can Gauge does not need any change parts for different can heights. Standard body and neck diameters are handled with simple, drop-in fixtures.
