The B300 Bottle Wall Thickness Gauge provides a factory calibrated solution to material thickness distribution, bottle height and base clearance measurements with unrivalled position, accuracy and repeatability. 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.


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.
