Automatic Chuck Starwheel Capping Machine

Automatic Chuck Starwheel Capping Machine Standard Features:

starwheel cap machine

Single Head 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 “starwheel” bottle handling platform is typically used on very small containers, irregularly shaped containers or containers whose opening is subject to deformation when handled by other capping methods. Dedicated changeparts for capsorting, and bottle handling are needed for each container / cap combination. This can provide precise torque and can eliminate particulation of polymer tightening surfaces of other capping methods.
