The Z313 Series Enamel Rater can be specified for conveyor loaded (automatic) or fully line fed (in-line) operation


The Z313 Enamel Rater measures the lacquer integrity of metal cans, with a typical throughput speed of 3 cans per minute.

The system can be specified with Torus’ optional LSM/ISG Recognition Camera Module, ensuring SPC data output is “tagged” with the relevant traceability for effective remedial actions.
