NEW! Finished Can Gauge, FCG-3000

Finished Can Gauge

The New Semi-Automated Finished Can Gauge from CMC-KUHNKE accurately measures critical parameters of multiple-sized, 2-piece cans.

A perfect partner to CMC-KUHNKE's Front End Gauge, the FCG-3000 is the latest addition to the family of gauges for 2-piece food cans, which also includes the PNR-V-O, Pressure of No Return Tester.

With the touch of a button, the FCG-3000 automatically measures Flange Width, Can Height, Bead Depth (with option of complete Bead Profile Analysis and roll bead measurement) On Can Bottom: 1st Bead Height, Countersink Depth, Panel Depth.

This ideal end-of-line gauge can be used on beaded or non-beaded canas of multiple heights and diameters - without the need for change parts. Switching between can heights does not require the gauge to be re-calibrated, saving valuable time between inspections. The can is rotated automatically and can be measured in up to 36 positions around the can.

An integrated microprocessor allows the gauge to be PC-Independent; eliminating any potential downtime due to computer related issues. Data can also be transferred directly into Visionary QC or other data acquisition software.
