Register / View: Understanding the Tools, Measurements, and Procedures of Evaluating Seams 201
Connor McCaulley, Kyle Kelleher, Mark Pirog, and Mark Saylor, Pneumatic Scale Angelus
Presentation Description: In our previous session, you learned the essentials of can seaming and why seam integrity is so important to the quality of your product. Now that you understand the foundation, in this session, we’ll offer practical information on the tools, measurements, and procedures for evaluating seam quality, including internal and external examination. You’ll learn:
• How to use a double seam micrometer to measure seam height and thickness
• Proper usage of tools like the countersink gauge, sanitary can opener, and nippers
• How to measure cover hook length and body hook length
• How to perform an external examination of the seam and critical flaws to look for
• How to perform an double seam teardown for internal examination of the seam
At the end of this session, you’ll understand how to evaluate seam quality and the tools, measurements, and procedures it takes to perform it properly. In Episode 3, we’ll pull it all together with a demonstration using our own CB50 canning line.

With 130 years of experience, and 16,000 canning lines in 132 countries, Pneumatic Scale Angelus is as serious about canning technology as you are about brewing. When it’s time to choose a canning machine worthy of those standards, you can rely on our expertise. With our inline canners, flowmeter technology ensures a perfect fill at speeds to 100 CPM, and our gas flush system keeps oxygen levels under control. Our high-speed seamer design, scaled for single head operation, delivers the only repeatable hermetic double seam in the industry. Our rotary machines use electro-mechanically controlled filling heads that ensure fill level accuracy within +/- 0.5 grams of target volume, and 4 seaming heads with the same industry-leading seal, helping you increase production without drastically increasing footprint. Now those are serious solutions!
