Prime Controls provides vital inspection solutions for 2-piece beverage can
As a trusted supplier of high-speed, on-line inspection equipment for food, aerosol, and other 3-piece cans worldwide, Prime Controls offers solutions that improve can plants’ bottom line, boost product accuracy, and ramp up manufacturing efficiencies. Our product line of double sheet detectors and air leak detection systems provides peace of mind for
As standard components on most EOE conversion presses, Prime Controls’ sensors and controls have inspected nearly every beverage can end in the world. Our can end products not only prevent double shells from entering the press, they also guarantee the presence of the tab on the shell as it exists. As the ends exit the press, our light leak detection sensors detect leaks five microns and below at speeds that exceed the industry standards. We also offer double shell and end detection for curlers for continuous prevention of double ends.

We always focus on providing better solutions through communication and value. At Prime Controls, we work with our customers to find the right solution for their products.
better overall knowledge of multi-industry issues in metal forming.
Our steel solutions include a series of double sheet detector controls that, when paired with a single, contacting double sheet probe, will measure a wide range of thicknesses for steel and other ferrous metals. Perfect for sheet feeders, robots, and destackers forming parts for the automotive, canmaking, and other metal forming industries.
Our all metal solutions include the DS150 Series double sheet detector controls. When paired with two, non-contact double sheet probes the detector will measure a wide range of thicknesses for all metal types. These control systems detect double sheet instances, where the metal is able to pass between the sensors for a non-contact, non-marring solution. These systems are perfect for sheet feeders for the automotive, canmaking, and other metal-forming industries.
Perfect for automation applications, robotics, automated destackers, sheet feeders, and in-fixture (poke-a-yoke), where sensing from one side is possible.
When paired with a single, non-contacting double sheet sensor, these controls detect a wide range of thicknesses of aluminum and other non-ferrous metals from very thin to very thick gauges.
With the automotive industry moving towards the use of more and more aluminum in their automotive body parts, the DS600 Series was designed with this in mind, providing the first of its kind double sheet detector that is both single sided and non-contact.
Our thin metal solutions include the DS3400 and DS160 Series Double Sheet Detector Controls. These systems detect double sheets of very thin stainless steel, aluminum, thin foil, and copper. Depending on the contact preference, either contact or non-contact, the DS3400 and DS160 Series has you covered, providing solutions for both contact preferences.
Perfect for metal food packaging, pharmaceutical packaging,
