WHAT IS SCORE?

The score is an essential area of the easy open end. A poorly manufactured score will require significantly more force to open than a good manufactured score. A score residual will typically be around 30% of the manufactured end thickness.

HOW HAS SCORE TRADITIONALLY BEEN MEASURED?

In the past, checking the score residual of easy open can ends has been achieved through using manual benchtop gauging or as part of a 'pop & tear' inspection. These manual benchtop methods are extremely time consuming and may not be cost-effective. A pop & tear inspection will also only detail high/low pass or fail values, it cannot detail where the issue is located or what the precise cause is.

THE TECHNOLOGY BEHIND TORUS' Z606 AUTOMATIC SCORE GAUGE

The gauge utilizes white light interferometry, a non-contact optical method for surface height measurement on 3D structures, producing real time 3D fast scanning.
