Can you trust this can?

Yes. We think you can.

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.

At Versatile Technology we’ve created a range of automatic testing and measuring systems to monitor food cans during production and ensure they are maintaining standards of high quality. The gauges are completely automated so there is no need to stop for changeover. There are no interruptions to your workflow and inspection staff are freed from monotonous testing procedures. Each gauge completes its tests continuously, accurately and reliably, without the need to shut down the production line for reconfiguration. With human error removed you’re left with peace of mind knowing that critical measurements are being monitored with ruthless precision and GR&R capability.

 SD143A Automatic DWI Front End Gauge

SD143A Automatic DWI Front End Gauge


The SD143A Automatic DWI Front end gauge measures wall thickness and can height of trimmed DWI cans (sizes 211 through to 401) with no need to stop or change parts.

As an option, the three lane conveyor can be directly fed from your production line. Cans are loaded and positioned automatically while multiple readings are repeated and reproduced accurately with automatic rotation.

Controlled via the 15″ LCD touch screen this gauge displays graphs of single point measurements of the top wall and mid wall in real time. Out of specification results also display on screen with a warning beacon above to alert operators nearby.

Passed and failed cans are sorted automatically as they are ejected from the gauge.
