Product Description

DESCRIPTION
  • The SEAM360 is the ultimate machine vision double seam can inspection gauge. The system is used for both three piece and two piece beverage and food cans.
  • Conventional seam scan technologysample seams at 2-3 points around the can. However, what about the points in between the sample points?
  • If you measure at a few points around the seam, using a micrometer or seam thickness gauge and destructive tests with a seam scope – you’re missing most of your information!
  • Problems can arise as close as a few millimeters from your measurement point and you will not detect them. This means that if a problem is missed, it can be a few more shifts before the problem is detected – resulting in many bad cans being closed or even shipped!
  • Instead of trying to measure every can (100%) but at a few measurement points, the SEAM360 measures every can’s total external surface area. This exposes many issues that were so far invisible to the operator!
  • X-ray systems measure at only a few points around the can, and pressure systems on the seamer can miss even obvious issues because of their technology (e.g., false seams!).
  • Using non-destructive optical technology, Quality By Vision’s new SEAM360 is capable of detecting all of these double seam issues in a fraction of the time it takes to do a seam test and with no operator influence on the results! SEAM360 is the first system capable of checking every point on the seam, so there’s no chance of missing anything.
  • This means problems with the seamer, loose or tight roll and chuck setups, double seam issues (including rare ones) are easily detectable for any seamer head.
  • The intuitive software clearly points out what the problem is and where it occurred.
  • Many tooling and seamer related issues can be fixed quickly, using the Clearance Gauge.
MODES OF OPERATION
  • Laboratory – SEAM360 tests one can at a time in a lab environment.
  • Continuous – SEAM360 grabs a number of cans off the line every X minutes, tests them, and alerts when there is a problem.
  • Manual – Bring cans to the machine, line them up and start the test – SEAM360 will produce a report and statistics graphs at the end of the measurement process.
  • Automatic – SEAM360 grabs one can from each head every X minutes and tests all of them. If one of the cans is marked by a dimple as being from Head
  • #1, SEAM360 will detect it and match that can with the correct head on the report!
ADVANTAGES TO CONVENTIONAL SEAM TESTING METHODS
  • Tests for seaming problems all around the seam, not just at 2-3 points
  • Detects and locates hard to find errors that can be easily missed in a seam test, such as compound buildups, variations around the seam, skids, wrinkle, and more!
  • An affordable alternative to X-ray based systems
  • Much faster and more reliable than conventional external seam gauges
  • Less expensive than other fully-automatic seam testers and NON DESTRUCTIVE!
SO FAR, THE SYSTEM HAS DETECTED:
  • Droops & Vees

  • Broken chucks
  • Tooling & Bushing problems
  • Seam gap issues
  • Overlap problems
  • Overhang
  • Seam bumps
  • Knocked-down flange
  • Dead-heads & chuck skids
