Quickly and accurately calibrate seamer machines and capping heads.

Increase processing speed with real-time vertical load data to simplify calibration & reduce damage.

Improperly calibrated capping and seaming machines cause damage and seal failure. Precise calibration prevents undersealing or overload. VerticalQC™ tracks the vertical pressure applied to an exact replica of the container and closure as it is processed through high-speed filling lines and sealing equipment.

How the process works:

Use VerticalQC™ smart sensor replicas as part of your regular calibration process to put an end to lengthy shut downs and improve overall line efficiency.
