The Z314 Semi-Automatic Wall Thickness Analyser defines the standard for dimensional inspection


The Z314 measures cups and straight walled cans’ wall thickness. Utilising a single point wall thickness transducer based on industry standard Torus Z301 Front End Gauge.

The Z314 Wall Thickness Analyser ensures accurate wall thickness inspection of cups, straight walled cans or 2pc bottle cans with no need for tooling changeover.
