The AUTO-XTS is a fully-automated, on-line or stand-alone measurement system that provides non-destructive, complete double seam inspection for beverage fillers. The fully-automated AUTO-XTS combines the internal X-ray seam measurements of the SEAMscan XTS with a second station for external measurements into one robust unit, providing faster inspection results, and reduced labor costs.

Connectivity Required: Connection to LAN (RJ45), 1 fixed IP Address (for external database access)

Measures: Double Seam Inspection (Seam Thickness, Countersink Depth, Seam Height, Body Hook, Cover Hook, Overlap, Seam Gap, % Body Hook Butting) Wrinkle Rating (% Tightness) with option of Can Height.


  • Faster and safer
  • Fully-Automatic
  • No product spoilage
  • Proven, patented
  • 360° tightness scan
  • Operator independent
  • World class R&R
  • Data is sent automatically to Visionary QC™ or other data acquisition and SPC reporting software


  • A robot handling system moves a complete range of filled beverage cans through the measurement stations.
    • Station #1: The can is automatically carried to Station #1 for measurement of Countersink Depth and Seam Thickness using CMC-KUHNKE’s TSG Gauge series. Measurements are made in up to 36 locations around the can.
    • Station #2: Patented XTS technology uses safe, low-power X-ray imaging to measure internal parameters of the seam, including tightness. The content is not affected by the X-ray.
    • Station #3: Measuring the height of the can.
    • Out-Feed: Once the double seam inspection has been completed, the cans are placed in order by head number either onto a conveyor for online systems, or into a carrying basket for manually loaded systems.
  • Automatic wrinkle identification and percentage calculation
  • Automatic dimple detection
  • Automatic tab detection
  • Excellent X-Ray-shielding (TÜV Rheinland tested to < 0.1 mSv per year)
  • Easy to use calibration/verification mode (with calibration piece)
  • Works with Visionary QC™ SPC Software
    • Easy-to-use Statistical Process Control for quick analysis of can inspection data
    • Flexible, secure database
    • Intuitive inspection reports may be shared and exported
    • Track trends and statistics with SPC Graphs
