The exceptionally accurate and repeatable FES-3000 Front End Gauge automatically rotates the can with the capability to measure 36 locations around the circumference of the can. Measurement results are shown on the TFT Touch screen and out-of-spec limits are clearly flagged in red allowing for immediate corrective action by line personnel.

Measure multiple heights and up to 2 diameters in one compact unit

An integrated microprocessor allows the Front End Gauge to be PC-independent; eliminating any potential downtime due to computer related issues. Data can also be transferred directly into Visionary QCTM or other data acquisition software.
