X-Ray Full Automatic Seam Scanner(non-destructive)

Testing occasions:Online/packaging line
Detection object:Canned beer, drinks
Test items:Double Seam


Seam-X®-On-line  X-Ray  Automatic  Seam Scanner”  adopts  non-destructive  measurement  method  to measure the seam quality, suitable for measuring the aluminum cans,  steel  cans  ,  aluminum-iron  composite  cans  and  etc.  It’s applicable  for  online  in  producing  department.  It’s  a non-destructive,  cost  saving,  accurate  measurement  and automatic  equipment which  can  be  installed  on  the  production line to improve the sampling frequency.

Measure Items: Seam Length, Body Hook, End Hook, Overlap, %Overlap, Seam Gap, %Body Hook Butting, and %End Hook Butting.
It’s applicable to measure cans of various materials. Combination of can body and the end can be following: (1) Aluminum & Aluminum; (2) Tin & Tin.

Seam-X®-On-Line can work together with the seam thickness gauge and countersink gauge, to make up a complete measure system for the double seam.
If configured with identification sampling system, it can make the result of every can correspond to the related seamer head.


●  Non destructive measurement, avoid waste samples
●  Non destructive measurement, better for environmental protection and save the cost of sewage treatment
●  High speed and high sampling frequency, reduce the isolation inferior
●  Auto & on-line measurement, labor saving and avoid human error
●  Improve sampling frequency, reduce quality risk and win consumer confidence
●  Cost saved annually turns into profit After the payback period
●  Able to track the seamer head corresponding to the inferior
●  It is used for on-site inspection of the production line, fast and efficient, high sampling frequency, and reduce the segregation of defective products
●  360° fully scanning
●  Auto judge passed or failed, and auto reject unqualified products 
●  Outstanding repeatability and reproducibility (R&R)
●  Comply with safety criteria of X-ray radiation protection, certified by the third party (0.08mSV/year)
●  Safe operation to avoid injury result from cutting method
●  Suitable for cans of various sizes and specification
●  Welding identifying function for 3-piece cans (Cost optional)
●  Measure data can be stored in SPC automatically

The “CanNeed-Seam-X-On-Line X-Ray Automatic Seam Scanner” adopts non-destructive measurement method to measure the seam quality, suitable for measuring the aluminum cans, steel cans , aluminum-iron composite cans and etc. It’s applicable for online in producing department. It’s a non-destructive, cost saving, accurate measurement and automatic equipment which can be installed on the production line to improve the sampling frequency.



Equipment Outline:

     ● Outline dimension:

<!--[if !vml]--><!--[endif]-->

    ● Production line distribution (Case one):

Technical data:

l Applicable for online in producing department; batch sampling test based on the preset time.

l Sampling interval: set the shortest time as sampling 12 cans/ batch in 1 minute

l Automatically input samples and measure samples, no need for human operation

l Accuracy:0.01mm

l 360-degree fully scan measurement, no blind spot detection

l Machine inspection beat: 5~8 second/PCS

l Load: production time calculation for 22 hours one day; Measuring capacity: 22(h) X 3600 (s) ÷ 5~8 (s) ≈10 K   PCS/day. It’s a stable and reliable equipment to the continuous detection.

l Adopts closed loop control. The seam structure data of each can is separately corresponding to the chucks of seamer. Able to track the chucks corresponding to the unqualified products, saving a lot of time to find out the problems and adjust the seamer.

l Automatically get rid of the inferiors.

Measuring Process:

Take samples from the online signal automatic production line


Transport samples to the detection entrance      Automatic sampling to the rotating disk positioning   


Adopt non-destructive X-ray to go through the required inspection stations 


360-degree fully scan measurement and take figures       Images can be auto analyzed by software

                                                                                                    Qualified products

                                                                              Analyze data to the server 


                                                           Analyze the status of seamer according to the data report       Inferiors
