NEW! SEAMetal version 6.1
for Windows 10
SEAMetal HD is the high definition version of Quality By Vision’s SEAMetal system – the most widely used, repeatable and accurate double seam measurement system in the world. According to third party customer testing, this double seam scope is rated as “world class GR&R”. Utilizing a new and highly accurate optical technology, coupled with easy to learn and intelligent software – the SEAMetal system offers the most flexible solution for double seam testing that companies can obtain in today’s marketplace.
New SEAM doctor, SEAMetal 6 will not only determine faulty measurements but also assist you in determining the root cause and assist you in correcting those pesky seamer issues!
The double seam inspection software is both quick and powerful, able to automatically capture and analyze the double seam with unprecedented resolution and accuracy. The system offers the latest developments, from research and analysis tools (like our SEAMexplorer software) to the free Statistical Process Control software integrated into the software.
In the last few years, the beverage industry has optimized its closure business. Companies have downgauged (reduction of end diameter), material thickness was reduced while production speeds increased. This has increased the level and rates of seaming problems significantly.
This is why a high accuracy, high repeatability fast and accurate double seam checking systems are now needed more than ever. This version of the SEAMetal seam scope is easy to learn and the most user-friendly in the industry! The system works for both three-piece and two-piece beverage cans!
SEAMetal HD Beverage is the third generation of beverage double seam measurement systems by Quality By Vision. The company has never stopped improving and developing this system since 1993, when it produced the world’s first computerized fully automatic double seam inspection system: SEAMetal 9000X.
This latest system introduces an integrated High Definition camera, providing an unprecedented look at the double seam. You can now see a better image and get a much more accurate measurement! Over the years, we have continuously improved our automatic seam detection technology, so the automatic measurement produced by the system is spot-on.
The software is touch friendly, you can zoom, pan, move lines with a simple gesture. The software will let you customize reports, including attaching SPC graphs and seam images to your reports. Everything you need is in one simple package!
The seam scope software is supported under all the latest versions of Microsoft Windows (including Windows 7 and Windows 10!).
Checking your double seam has never been easier or more accurate!
