The Z606 Automatic Food End Score Gauge has been developed to provide the highest accuracy, repeatability, and usability for the measurement of Score Residual on Food can ends.


The Gauge uses two proprietary 3D Scanning White Light Interferometry Sensors developed by Torus’ Research & Development team. Each sensor performs a high-resolution area scan of the upper and lower surface of the Score area to build up a full 3D map for analysis and measurement. The sensors combine sub-micron vertical scanning with sub-micron X, Y area scans for unprecedented resolution, resolving up to 2.3 million surface data points for each Score Residual Thickness measurement.
