                                  Z307 SEMI-AUTOMATIC BENCH TOP FOOD CAN AXIAL LOAD GAUGE

                                  Z307 SEMI-AUTOMATIC BENCH TOP FOOD CAN AXIAL LOAD GAUGE

                                  The Z307 Semi-Automatic Bench Top Axial Load Gauge determines the maximum axial load force that can be applied prior to container failure within a short cycle time.

                                  Specifications

                                  The test will begin once top tooling has detected the start of the axial load via the high accuracy mapped load cell, gathering accurate data throughout the inspection routine. Once the can sample has reached the buckle/column strength maximum achievable load, the result will be shown on screen and exported as necessary.

                                        Using Industry standard database platforms, SPCXplorer is suitable for single station application, through to full factory database-centric network installations.Statistical Process Control (SPC) software is essential for manufacturing wide quality monitoring. 

                                        Upgrade Existing SPC Software Systems

                                        With our database migration tools and backward compatibility architecture, users of the previous generation Repro2000 statistical process control software can upgrade with minimal disruption to their daily operation.

                                        Designed with the needs of shop-floor data collection in mind, SPCXplorer can be interfaced to a large variety of manual instrumentation via RS232 connectivity, or for more complex gauging systems, can process bespoke ASCII data files via Ethernet.

                                        The Reporting module ensures the data is displayed in the right format for your quality reviews, and with its simple and powerful administration functions, access to the management and configuration areas of the software is password protected for assured security.

                                        Reliable & Professional SPC Software for Industry – SPCXplorer

                                        Statistical Process Control software helps prevent business relative issues before they occur, via the use of data driven quality analysis. This enables you to monitor your production process by utilising visual diagrams such as Control Charts, customers have the ability to create specific control boundaries for all of their process monitoring needs. SPCXplorer detects manufacturing issues before they occur.

                                        Using statistical process control software and knowing how efficient your processes are running, helps give the operators valuable information on whether to instigate or adjust their manufacturing processes or whether to carry on with the current process.
