ScuffQCTM

Minimize scuff damage and prolong the life of returnable glass.

Measure scuff to reduce aesthetic damage and maximize filling cycles from returnable glass.

A container's surface is mechanically and chemically damaged during processing. The result of pressure, friction, spin and tilt; scuffing causes wear marks and reduces the number of filling cycles of returnable glass. Damage from scuffing is impossible to measure without ScuffQC™, the industry's only scuff measurement. 

How the process works

Outfitted with pressure sensitive film, ScuffQC™ smart sensor replicas are placed on the line to measure scuff for glass and canning industries. Location beacons identify where to take immediate corrective actions to minimize rejects and extend container life.

Scuff
Scuff

Extend returnable bottle life by reducing scuff wth the industry's only measure of a container’s pressure, friction and spin velocity. 

Pressure
Pressure

Reduce scuffing and abrasion damage by controlling external force measured in pounds-force or Newtons.

Spin & Tilt
Spin & Tilt

Control label and pressure damage by reducing degrees per second of container tilt and spin.

Features

Extend the life of returnable glass up to 4 years.
Significantly reduce scuffing and aesthetic damage.
Identify areas of potential glass breakage and damage to cans.
Determine maintenance and capital investment priorities.
Improve efficiency of line changeovers.
