Can Diameter Gauge

Can Diameter Gauge

Can Diameter Gauge

• Fast, simple can positioning
• No parts changing required for different diameters
• High repeatability among operators
• Zero drift precision digital micrometer
• Rugged design
• Directly interfaced to the SeamMate® System

Two models of the Can Diameter Gauge are available; small and large can diameter. Each model consists of a precision stand with digital micrometer interfaced to the OneVision® System that measures can diameters with no part changes.

Specifications:
• Precision drift free digital measurement
• Linear Measurement Resolution = .00008 inches
• Can Height Range from 0.0 inches to 11.0 inches
• Chrome-hardened rails
• Three point can measuring base
• Automatic Measurement Recording base dimensions 12″ x 14″

Can Height Gauge

• Proprietary precision gauge for can makers
• Simple can placement on base by the operator
• Precision measurement for all can sizes
• Simple, repeatable gauge zero
*Internal drift-free digital encoder
• Directly interfaces to the SeamMate® System

The can is quickly positioned using the positioning pin; the base triangle supports the bottom can plane at three points. Can heights are quickly recorded in the SeamMate® System.

Specifications:
• Gauge Resolution – .0001 inches
• Measurement Range = 0 to .500 inches
• Sanitary Can Range: 202 to 610 diameter
• Beverage Can Range: 202 to 300 diameter
