Bagging count system for beverage cans


a cost effective system for identifying under or over-filled sleeves of ends


The system consists of two specialized non-contacting End Count Sensors designed for reliable and highly accurate counts to allow precise monitoring with 100% confidence. The sensors are positioned on a carriage mounted to a linear bearing, which allows the stack to be easily and swiftly moved past the counter. Ends are counted in ‘stick’ form, which makes it easy to unload and reload ends into the bag using the guides provided. A simple fixture assembly makes for quick and straightforward installation. Intuitive ‘go/no-go’ status lights are designed for easy operation.


The system can be used for all beer and beverage ends and 90% of all food ends.

High Performance / Low Cost

Setting up the Bag Count Validator is simple and quick. Since the unit is portable, it is easily moved from line to line and plugged into a local power source. All an operator need to do is:

  • Reset the counters
  • Slide the ends onto the rack using the supplied horns.
  • Adjust the sensors to the height of the ends
  • Start counting
Easy to Use

The ends are easy to load and unload in stick form using the horns provided. Sensors used on the system are specially designed to achieve highly accurate and reliable counts each time. By simply sliding the sensors from right to left over the lids, a highly accurate count is taken. (Typically 99.998% accurate when correctly applied and set up).

Quick, Intelligent and Flexible

The sensors are unidirectional, so the system only counts forward, which means that even if ‘jiggling’ occurs, a correct count is still taken. Two counters on the system provide immediate validation. The sensors are adjustable to allow for different end finishes. If your application involves an unusual size, shape or coating, please contact your local Sencon office.
