      Z307 SEMI-AUTOMATIC BEVERAGE CAN DESTRUCTIVE GAUGE

      Z307 SEMI-AUTOMATIC BEVERAGE CAN DESTRUCTIVE GAUGE

      Torus’ Z307 series defines the standard for destructive testing and inspection

      Specifications

      The Z307 Automatic Axial Load module determines the maximum axial load force that can be applied prior to container failure, within a short cycle time.

      The Z308 Dome Growth/Dome Reversal module provides detailed information about the overall change in length of the can when pressure is applied and subsequently removed. The system has programmable internal pressure capability to meet each customer’s exact needs for dome growth. After dome growth, the can sample can be reversed to find the maximum pressure the sample is able to withstand before failure (dome reversal)

                          Z307 SEMI-AUTOMATIC BENCH TOP AEROSOL CAN AXIAL LOAD GAUGE

                          The Z307 Semi-Automatic Bench Top Axial Load Gauge determines the maximum axial load force that can be applied prior to container failure within a short cycle time.

                          Specifications

                          The test will begin once top tooling has detected the start of the axial load via the high accuracy mapped load cell, gathering accurate data throughout the inspection routine. Once the can sample has reached the buckle/column strength maximum achievable load, the result will be shown on screen and exported as necessary.

By turning the bottle upside down the confocal white light sensor can access the bottle base, eradicating historic and potentially dangerous sections weight checks. As the industry evolves a new level of quality control is becoming expected. Fast, accurate and reliable data can be generated and sent to the network without any operator intervention.

                                    Specifications

                                    Torus’ Semi-Automatic Thickness Inspection Gauge has been developed to provide a traceable measurement solution for material thickness distribution, bottle height and base clearance measurement. Using state-of-the-art white light technology for rapid non-contact reliable inspection, the system takes advantage of a self-teach profile scan function, for quick part program creation.

                                     

                                    Quick change location tooling provides the capability for the system to measure a full range of components, from small vials to large containers, future production proofing the machine as customer requirements and bottle portfolios develop. Bottles are held neck down, allowing the measurement sensor to access the bottle base, eradicating historic and potentially dangerous section weight checks.

                                     

                                    Automatic body routines within the inspection module remove the requirement for precise orientation loading into the system, with the measurement sensor completing alignment using part features such a petals or major axis edges.

                                    Quick intuitive measurement position programming, powered through Torus’ GaugeXplorer software, enables the user to quickly add multiple measurement points with complete flexibility or at fixed height positions from base or sealing surface.
