SEAMetal MSD: Double Seam, Beverage Cans

Semi automatic double seam inspection for beverage cans

NEW SEAMETAL 6.0 version for Windows 10

Manual double seam inspection is often good enough for many companies who are budget aware and do not have a high volume of products. This can include specialty canning companies and smaller scale producers who care less about speed and more about the cost of the system.

Using the same software as the acclaimed SEAMetal HD and SEAMetal SD double seam analysis systems, this software lacks the automatic seam analysis portion of the software. While this does slow down the operator, it does not reduce the accuracy of the system, which has already been rated by third party testing as the “BEST GR&R IN THE INDUSTRY”!

Using the same twin blade saw, optical unit and software – the operator can inspect the same cans as the fully-automatic SEAMetal.

The measurement procedure requires that the operator manually place the lines in position. The operator can still make changes to the lines.

The results is an efficient use of both time and budget for smaller operators, that can spend more time on each measurement.

The SEAMetal double seam projection system for beverage cans allows the operator to perform quick evaluation inspection for the double-seaming process in beverage cans.

SEAMetal’s high accuracy allows a full seam analysis without external gauges. External gauges can be connected to the SEAMetal MSD, when added accuracy is important (or when additional measurements need to be added to the seam inspection report). External gauges are often mandatory with other seam inspection systems – causing a significant slowdown in the double-seam measurement process!

Placing the can within the optical unit takes a split second due to our centering device. The double seam centering device provides the operators with a quick and fool-proof way in which to place the can in the optical unit without requiring focus, adjustments or other time consuming activities.

SEAMetal provides the best GR&R rating in the industry – using an automatic saw, our unique centering device, and automatic double seam detection – the same measurements will be taken regardless of the operator performing the measurement!

Since the software runs under Windows (TM) operating systems, this allows the operator to run additional tasks such as word processing and spread sheets as needed. SEAMetal can also be integrated into an existing networks for remote printing, backup and remote access to reports.

Our manual beverage twin blade saw is a perfect match for this low cost system.

Double seam measurements and reports can be exported into all popular file format, including Microsoft Word, Excel and even Internet formats. Pictures can be saved in bitmap format, to be used with any word processor, email or any other program.

Even triple seams (for Drums, General Line and hazardous materials) have a special saws and dedicated optical units to analyze them.
