Precise tooling measurement for can makers
Integrated Packaging Solutions (IPS) has announced the release of ToolScan, a precise tooling measurement system.
The system uses a non-contact LED micrometer to measure bodymaker punch OD and contour scan/ironing and redraw die ID and OD. ToolScan also features an innovative punch scan feature, which scans the punch contour along the longitudinal profile, measuring all the punch profiles – and thus making it ideal for punch step and rework analysis.
The system was engineered from the ground up by can makers, and is designed solely for the can manufacturing industry. IPS reports that the system features an easy-to-operate touch screen operator control panel, an easy access safety door, and customisable reports with an easy pass/fail analysis.
