EPA for beverage Ends

End profile Analyzer

The EPA – End Profile Analyzer is a can end measurement system, which uses laser profiling technology in order to measure the can end.

Incorrect values on the ends can often cause major issues like deadheads, stuck ends, false seams and bad double seams. Also, can end curl specifications are very difficult to measure and confirm today without the End Profile Analyzer.

The End Profile Analyzer (EPA) replaces “go-no-go” gauges and destructive measurement methods for ends, which are inaccurate, time consuming and give different results for different operators. With laser profiling technology, the EPA is able to measure all important end specifications using a non-contact optical laser measurement system:

  • End Material Thickness
  • Outside diameter
  • Inside Diameter
  • Chuck Fit Diameter (an actual measurement, not go-no-go)
  • Curl Width (for the first time, non destructive!)
  • Curl Height
  • External Curl Radius
  • Countersink
  • End flanges
  • Pin Fit
  • New: Overall height
  • New: Chuck wall angle (optional, destructive )
  • New: Countersink bottom radius (optional, destructive )
