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


The gauge features fixed-top and mid-wall probe positions for multi-positional radial measurement, with a dedicated caliper to ensure the correct top and mid-wall thickness measurement position every time.

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 Z306 Panel Resistance module provides detailed information about the maximum panel resistance vacuum pressure the can is able to achieve prior to failure.
