Quality-control system
The FS-80 IP system reliably detects improperly sealed cans and twist-off bottle caps. The system improves final-product quality on assembly lines that fill containers under vacuum or pressure, including nitrogen-dosed cans, and it reliably detects low vacuum or pressure at speeds as high as 1300 bottles/min or 2000 cans/min.

Syringe-closing unit
A rotating, 16-head closing unit receives filled syringe bodies and pistons simultaneously. Because air must be vented during the closing process, each syringe is compressed into oval shape briefly, while air is vented at the piston seal. The process does not affect material or syringe properties, and it implements air evacuation under continuous operation.

Sanitary clamping
Continental Disc Corporation introduces the SANI-TORQ clamping device to tighten sanitary clamps to a specified torque setting. The new device tightens a standard 1-1/2"–4" (40–100 mm) sanitary clamp with a standard wrench until the proper torque value is reached. An audible click indicates the correct inch-pounds force has been achieved, and a self-limiting feature stops tightening the clamp. SANI-TORQ is left in place until the clamp is removed.
