Automatic cap tighteners require only that the operator places the cap onto the container; the capping machine automatically handles the container and torques threaded caps to tighness at rates dependent on the type of tightener. “Inline” continuous motion tighteners can reach capping rates limited only practically by the operators ability to place and start the caps on the containers. Intermitten motion chuck style automatic tighteners typically operate at slower rates up to 30 CPM max. The intermittent motion tighteners are available in pnuematic or electric torque versions that provide a choice between cost, precision and upper limits of torque. The automatic chuck style automatic capping machine tighteners provide more precise and repeatable torque and lower throughput.

 

automatic inline nt capping machine

Capping Machine – Automatic Inline NT

Model Capper NT-IL Automatic Inline
The fully automatic inline capping machine applies caps to a container by stripping them out of a chute in the path of the moving container and placing them over the mouth of the container. The container is gripped by two belts moving at the same speed of the conveyor in order to stabilize the container. Two opposing and pulsating cap tightening belts then torque the threaded caps onto the containers as they pass through on the moving conveyor. Capping speeds of nominally 200 containers per minute are attainable on this machine depending on cap size and container configuration. The capper will handle a range of cap sizes up to 120mm diameter and container size range of (height) 1-1/2″ to 15″ and (width) 1/2″ to 7″ in plastic, metal, or glass.

automatic-chuck-inline-capping-machine

Capping Machine – Automatic Chuck – Inline

Model Capper CH1-PP-IL Automatic Single Head Chuck – Inline Pick & Place
Automatic chuck capper is designed to vertically place a threaded cap onto a rigid container and torque the cap to a specified application torque. This machine is used for caps that can only be vertically placed on a container. This particular “inline” platform is used on more stable and larger containers where bottle handling is not as challenging. It is therefore also not as costly to build as the starwheel type below. The machine also solves the problem of particulation of polymer tightening surfaces of other capping methods.

Capping Machine – Automatic Chuck – Starwheel

Model Capper CH1-SP-SW Automatic Single Head Chuck – Starwheel Strip & Place
Automatic chuck capper is also designed to vertically place a threaded cap onto a rigid container and torque the cap to a specified application torque. This machine is used for caps that can be stripped off a cap chute by the mouth of the container. This starwheel version of the chuck capper is also used where containers are small or irregularly shaped or have wide mouths with flexible side walls. Generally, containers that run on this type of chuck capper are too unstable to be positively controlled by other capping methods or the mouth of the container has a tendency to become oval when the body is gripped. Like the Inline chuck capper above, this version machine also solves the problem of particulation of polymer tightening surfaces of other capping methods.

Model Capper CH1-PP-SW Automatic Single Head Chuck – Starwheel Pick & Place
Automatic chuck capper is also designed to vertically place a threaded cap onto a rigid container and torque the cap to a specified application torque. This machine is used for caps that can only be vertically placed on a container and not stripped off a cap chute. This starwheel version of the chuck capper is also used where containers are small or irregularly shaped or have wide mouths with flexible side walls. Generally, Containers run on this type of chuck capper are too unstable to be positively controlled by other capping methods. Like the Inline chuck capper above, this version machine also solves the problem of particulation of polymer tightening surfaces of other capping methods.

 

 

automatic-vertical-placer-single-head-inline-capping-machine

Capping Machine – Automatic Vertical Placer – Single Head Inline

Model Placer V1-PT-IL Automatic Single Head Verical Placer – Inline
Automatic vertical cap placer is designed to only vertically place a large threaded cap onto a rigid container and start the cap to a fully seated position on the container. It is not designed to deliver any particular torque specification. This type of machine is often necessary on larger cap sizes above 80mm that do not seat properly on typical “inline” or “spindle” capping machines. Because the caps are typically large, the container bodies are also large and lend themselves to “inline” type container handling on this machine. This type of system (coupled with an inline cap tightener) has an economic advantage over large platform conventional chuck style capping machines.

Capping Machine – Automatic Vertical placer – Dual Head

Model Placer V2-PT-SW Automatic Dual Head Verical Placer – Starwheel
Two head automatic vertical cap placer is designed to vertically place a large threaded cap onto a rigid container and start the cap to a fully seated position on the container. This type of machine is often necessary on cap sizes above 80mm and can reach speeds of 40 BPM on very large caps and containers when coupled with an inline cap tightener. This combination of machines has an economic advantage over expensive multi head conventional chuck style capping machines.

automatic-vertical-plugger-capping-machine

Capping Machine – Automatic Vertical Plugger

Model Plugger V1-PT-SW Automatic Single Head Vertical – Starwheel
Automatic plugger is designed to vertically place a fitment onto or a plug or stopper into the mouth of a container. These fitments and plugs typically cannot be applied to the container at angles associated with conventional snap capping machines or straight line capping machines. Moreover, the containers that these plugs and fitments are being applied to are typically quite small and require specific bottle handling changeparts like timing screws and the starwheel shown.

Capping Machine – Automatic Snap Cap

Model Capsnap NT-IL Automatic Snap Capper – Inline
Fully automatic snap capper applies and snaps non threaded caps onto containers. Unit is often used for standard “NEPCO” or similar snapcaps as well as for overcaps used in aerosol packaging operations. Capable of very high speeds in excess of 200 CPM depending on cap size and container configuration.

 

 

 

automatic-crimp-capper-capping-machine

Capping Machine – Automatic Crimp Capper

Model Crimper CH1-SP Automatic Crimp Capper
Automatic single head crimp capper is designed to crimp an aluminum closure over a stopper. The closure is stripped out of a chute by the moving container and then stops. While the bottle is held in place by gripping mechanisms, the crimping head dives and crimps the closure onto the container neck. This system is usually supplied with a starwheel handling system to control small glass bottles.
