Light Testers

The following systems are available for light testers:

SYS-LTA/S: Alcoa (Borden's) Light Tester Control System
SYS-RT6: Reynolds (APM) RT-5/RT-6 Light Tester Control System


SYS-LTA/S: Alcoa (Borden's) Light Tester Control System
 
  • Complete control for all machine functions including: main drive, reject control, all alarm monitoring, line control interface, etc.
  • Based on HSL-LTA (aluminum can) and HSL-LTS (steel can) technology.
  • Replaces existing odd/even mechanical reject mechanism with a reject blow-off solenoid mounted in the tester discharge track-work.
  • Increases Production - By eliminating the mechanical reject, and thus the limitations of speed imposed by the response time of the mechanical reject mechanism, significant increases in speed can be achieved.
  • Reduced Downtime and Maintenance- Eliminating the mechanical reject eliminates can jams caused by intermittent or poorly operating reject mechanisms thus reducing scrap and downtime to clear can jams in the machine as well as maintenance.
  • Supplied with Variable Frequency Drive for main drive.
  • Supplied with 60" x 36" x 12" NEMA 12 Power/Logic cabinet.
  • 2-Line x 20 Character Alphanumeric status/alarm display supplied standard upgradeable to a Touch-Screen panel.
  • Operates at speeds in excess of 3,000 Cans per minute.

SYS-RT6: Reynolds (APM) RT-5/RT-6 Light Tester Control System
 
  • Complete control for all machine functions including: main drive, leak detection, reject control, all alarm monitoring, line control interface, etc.
  • Based on HSL-RT6-M45 technology.
  • Reduces scrap - Gated photomultiplier tube eliminates tube saturation problems which in turn eliminates excess good can rejection following a gross leaker or when the machine is run empty.
  • Increased reliability - Gated photomultiplier tube provides dramatic increase in photomultiplier tube life (typical tube life is 1 to 2 years).
  • Improved quality - with increased sensitivity control, the package allows a greater insight into the can making process. Miss-alignment in bodymaker tooling, resulting in thin wall split flanges, can be determined by excess split flange rejects from that bodymaker. Necker/Flanger tooling problems can also be detected from the cans rejected.
  • Interfaces directly with Odd/Even reject solenoids to reject defective cans at speeds up to 3,000 Can Per Minute.
  • Auto Gain calibration feature simplifies system calibration and sensitivity adjustment.
  • Supplied with Variable Frequency Drive for main drive.
  • Supplied with 60" x 36" x 12" NEMA 12 Power/Logic cabinet.
  • 2-Line x 20 Character Alphanumeric status/alarm display supplied standard upgradeable to a Touch-Screen panel.
  • Operates at speeds in excess of 3,000 Cans per minute.
