        Z604 AUTOMATIC FOOD SHELL AND END ENAMEL RATER

        Z604 AUTOMATIC FOOD SHELL AND END ENAMEL RATER

        Our Z604 Automatic Food Shell and end Enamel Rater offers unprecedented functionality and capability for today’s global shell/end-making industry.

        Specifications

        By monitoring critical manufacturing parameters over time and relating the press performance to the change in the ends opening signature, the manufacturing process capability can be observed. This trend monitoring is extremely beneficial to the process engineer, in predicting potential out-of-spec score residual and other critical features. By sampling ends from the production line, the Opening Force Gauge can monitor tooling wear in real-time and provide significant savings in both labour and scrap.

          Z403 AUTOMATIC FOOD SHELL COMPOUND WEIGHT AND PLACEMENT GAUGE

          Z403 AUTOMATIC FOOD SHELL COMPOUND WEIGHT AND PLACEMENT GAUGE

          The Z403 Automatic Compound Weight and Placement Gauge has been designed to reduce the significant labour time associated with manual compound weight and placement checks, whilst also reducing the risk of human error in this manually labour intensive process.

          Specifications

          By adopting a similar strategy to the existing manual process, Torus have incorporated state of the art printing technology to label each shell with specific information related to the module, liner, sample, date and time.

           

          Torus Shells and Ends

          Technical Specification

          • Shell Materials | Aluminium
          • Component Stages | Shells
          • Shell Diameter Range | Typical Range: Ø 211 – Ø 307
          • Option of 1-5 stations for up to 1-5 sizes/types at one time with no change parts
          • Significantly reduces labour time
          • Reduces the risk of human error
          • Compound weight and placement together in one process
          • Barcode label printing and verification on any colour shells
          • A “dimple” detection station is included to identify liner gun 1, giving further detailed traceability for SPC data analysis

          1. Compound Weight

          After the shells have been passed through the “lining” process, the operator will bake the ends in the usual manner and return them to the gauge. Each shell will be automatically identified and weighed again. The barcode verification feature ensures the risk of “mixing” or manual data entry errors are completely removed from the process, and the compound weight will be automatically calculated and displayed for the operator for each shell.

          2. Compound Placement

          After compound weight compound placement can also be checked. This is done by up to 5 optional “uncurling” presses within the gauge, for plants producing different shell diameters and types.

          3. Uncurling

          Once “uncurled” the shells are inspected by up to 5 high resolution cameras as they are rotated through 360 degrees.

          Detailed information on the cut edge distance and HOS (high on shoulder) is provided around the complete shell circumference.

            Z307 SEMI-AUTOMATIC BENCH TOP FOOD CAN AXIAL LOAD GAUGE

            Z307 SEMI-AUTOMATIC BENCH TOP FOOD 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.

                                      Z312 VISION MODULE

                                      The Z312 Vision Module tests for all industry standard ISG recognition, including UV/BRC presence in one system.

                                      Specifications

                                      The Z312 Vision Module quickly identifies the application of UV base rim coat presence, indicating in split seconds a percentage coverage based on parameters set within Torus’ GaugeXplorer software. The live report instantly denotes if the rim coat has either been under applied or damaged.

                                       

                                      Designed with flexibility in mind the Z312 module can be integrated into any new or existing Torus gauge, or alternatively supplied as a standalone system. The flexible module boasts multi size capability with no change parts allowing the system to be located anywhere on the shop floor.
