Our state-of-the-art Auto XTS instrument offers a double seam inspection solution like no other – there truly is no instrument like it available. The instrument has been created by CMC-KUHNKE, one of the brands sitting under global test and inspection provider Industrial Physics – this tool is perfect for the beer, beverage, and food market.

Used by some of the biggest beverage manufacturers on the planet, the Auto XTS is a fully automated online or stand-alone measurement system that provides non-destructive complete double-seam inspection for beverage fillers.

The instrument combines the internal X-ray seam measurements of the CMC-KUHNKE SEAMscan XTS with a second station to carry out external measurements. Combining this into one robust unit allows the user to achieve faster inspection results and experience reduced labor costs.

An interesting thing to note about the Auto XTS is that after some minor engineering tweaks, the instrument will soon be able to test food cans as well as beverage cans – making the instrument even more versatile. Our solution is washdown-proof and able to handle any can size without needing to change parts.

Brought to life by the finest seam inspection experts in the world, the Auto XTS is fully customizable to your needs and allows you to select cans for inspection in a way that best suits each individual operator – making it a true game changer for quality control in metal packaging. With repeatable and reliable results on offer, the solution is fully automated and takes away the need for personnel – perfect for operators given the current context of the pandemic right now.


Unlike the autonomous Auto-XTS, the CMC-KUHNKE SEAMScan XTS is an offline instrument that requires operator support.

The instrument is a stand-alone measurement system that provides non-destructive, double seam inspection for round cans (aluminum or steel). The gauge performs both non-destructive cross-sectional measurements and a 360° tightness scan. The system provides faster inspection results, and reduced labor costs.

Cans are manually loaded into the device, then all measurements are performed automatically. Cans may be held for additional testing or be sent back into production. XTS virtual seam teardown technology provides highly accurate double seam inspection data, while dramatically reducing product spoilage.
