    Product 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.
    • 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!
    • 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!
