FES-4000: Front End Station

Semi-Automated Front-End Measurement for Trimmed Cans

The Front End Gauge provides automated front end measurements on trimmed cans.

The exceptionally accurate and repeatable FES-4000 automatically rotates the can with the capability to perform 360° scan of wall thickness. At each position Can Height, Bottom Depth, Top-Wall and Mid-Wall Thickness are measured. Measurement results are shown on the TFT Touch screen and out-of-spec limits are clearly flagged in red allowing for immediate corrective action by line personnel. Data may be transferred directly into a data acquisition software.

Time savings thanks to automatic can rotation and automatic data transfer, as well as the possibility for multiple measurements at one time.

There are no change-parts required for multiple can heights and diameters.

Exceptionally accurate measurements with a resolution of 0.1 microns for wall thickness measurements.
