Reputed to be the benchmark of bench-top Pop and Tear Gauges, the PC031E now goes a step further to test the rivet tightness of tabs as well.
At Versatile Technology we are changing the game again with a single gauge that automatically tests dome depth, wall thickness and height for both cans and cups on the fly.
Once you’ve decided to go automatic it’s hard to believe how much you now know about every single can you create.
The AD142 Automatic Front End Gauge reports sixteen parameters that involve wall thickness, can height and dome depth for every can tested.
vTools by Versatile Technology is the essential software suite to connect our systems to yours. It is a safe and secure bridge between the V2 processor that drives all Versatile machines and your own Windows PC and is compatible with Windows XP or newer.
We’re pleased to announce upgrades and extra features for two of our gauges that measure pop & tear and tab strength for stay-on-tab beverage ends.
At Versatile Technology, our research and development team are continually coming up with features to make our gauges faster and more accurate.
Now standard on both our automatic front and back end systems for beverage and DWI cans, we’ve introduced Automatic Continuous Scan. A test that gives you instant insight into localised wall thickness variations on any single can.
Our latest HD131D Automatic Enamel Rater for Beverage and Food cans, can be configured for direct on-line testing of any height and diameter without stopping or changeover.
Achieving accurate repeatability and reproducibility involves not only reducing variability within the instrument itself but also from the individuals that operate it. Aligning the grain of the sheet metal automatically eliminates yet another variable from any critical measurements taken.
When packaging food in cans, it’s vital to keep the contents fresh for long periods of time under various conditions.
You need a can that you can trust.
The Versatile Technology R&D team have developed the “E” Series DV036 gauge, which can handle any type of beverage end, whether it be SOT or RPT for juice, non-CSD, CSD or beer.
Our new Panel Growth monitoring technology accurately monitors and detects the growth and buckle of the end under test, and provides realtime graphing on the 12″ LCD touch screen.
Due to an increased variety of beverage ends being manufactured by many of our customers, we have been asked to develop the ‘E’ model Beverage End Buckle Gauge which can test pressure-test them all.
In the past, testing juice and non-CSD beverage ends required a special gauge configuration, due to the low buckle pressures encountered as a result of the thinner material thickness.
This type of beverage end also require a different pressure ramp rate configuration compared with CSD/Beer ends.
New features include:
– Software selectable fast and slow flow rates for each type of end.
– Real-time graphing of pressure signatures for all testmodes.
– Traditional Pressure Drop or new Panel Growth buckle detection
– Easy to use 12″ LCD touch screen, with multi-language support
