NEW! Fully-Automatic Multiple Diameter End Measurement Station for Aerosol Domes and Ends


The MARS-AER is CMC-KUHNKE's latest automated gauge for the measurement of aerosol domes and bottoms. Based on CMC-KUHNKE's industry leading MARS-DMA for ends, this aerosol dome and bottom measurement system is entirely customizable for the user working with any range of sizes.

The MARS-AER comes as standard with automatic measurement of Curl Height, Curl Opening, Curl Diameter, Panel Depth, Total Height, Countersink Height, Contact Height, and 1" Opening. Through the use of hoppers for multiple can end diameters, and an automated handling system, the MARS-AER measures an unlimited range of different sizes.

The can ends are automatically rotated with all parameters being measured in up to 50 positions around the circumference of the end. The gauge utilizes two measurement stations; the first measures Curl Height, Curl Opening, Curl Diameter, Panel Depth, Total Height, and Countersink Height; the second station measures Contact Height and 1" opening.

Additional options are available, including: Seaming Panel Height, Snaplock Undercut, Shoulder Depth, Curl Thickness and Dome Curl Outer Diameter.

This easy to use automatic measurement gauge combines unsurpassed R&R results with a compact design, touch screen interface, and RS232 data output.

As well as providing greatly increased accuracy of measurement, the labor savings gained by installing the MARS-AER Automatic Multiple Diameter End Measurement System will pay for the entire project within a matter of months.
