Buckle gauge developed for two-piece cans

CMC-Kuhnke has introduced a buckle tester for two-piece DRD and D&I cans, equipped with a growth measurement gauge to measure the deflection of the can bottoms.

The system, called the DRT-1000DG, is a semi-automated tester designed to determine the pressure at which the bottom of the can begins to buckle, as well as measuring the rate of growth.

The unit incorporates CMC-Kuhnke’s Quick Fill technology, designed to make the testing process faster by rapidly increasing the testing pressure from the atmospheric level to a preset amount.

Once this amount is reached, the fill rate is automatically lowered to provide greater accuracy.Test results are displayed on the unit’s digital display and can also be transferred to a computer via the RS232 connection.
