An automatic capping machine is made to individual specifications to perform feeding, orienting and applying caps or lids to the bottles or containers. Custom-made cappers ensure that your containers or bottles will be capped and torqued consistently. They have great flexibility with their electronically controlled, easily configurable, adjustable, parameters for rotation, twisting force and container height. Filling and capping can be performed in a single automatic filling and capping machineRequest A Quote
Following filling, machine grippers secure the filled bottles or containers and transfer them to the capping station. The capping station usually is equipped with a cap un-scrambler and a cap feeder, which feeds the caps to the cap guide tracks. The capping machine picks the caps from the guide track and puts them on the bottle or container and torques threaded caps. Following capping, the transfer gripper which brings the next containers will push out the capped containers out of the capping station and onto the output conveyor for further processing.
Automatic capping machine | Capper requires only that the operator places the caps into cap feeder, then the capping machine automatically handles the container and torques threaded caps.
Cap and lids types include: flat caps (screw-on, threaded or lug), flip-top lids, sprayers, pump-type, dropper, roll-on closures, press-top, twist-top caps, disc-top caps, pull/push caps, child resistant (CRC) closures, pilfer proof caps, etc.
In inline capper, the filled containers are transferred in a single row from the filling machine to the capping machine on the main processing conveyor
In the case of automatic filling and capping machine with rotary capping machine, the filled containers are transferred on the conveyor towards the starwheel
In the case of the rotary monobloc filling and capping machine, the starwheel indexes the containers towards the capping station(s).
Cap elevating-sorting conveyor for screw-on caps
Cap elevating conveyor and centrifugal feeder for spray pump caps
Bowl feeder for a roll-on container (for inner plastic lid holding roller ball)
Cap elevating-sorting conveyor with cap hopper
Cap distributing system for multiple capping stations
In the inline capper, container(s) are separated by gates according to the number of capping stations.
In the case of a rotary capping machine, the starwheel indexes the containers towards the capping station(s).
The container cap is applied to the container on the pre-torque station
The container cap is tightened on the container to a pre-determined torque on the torquing station
The level and centering of the capping gripper can be adjusted according to the container neck, and the conveyor width also can be adjusted according to the container sizes.
In the case of a rotary capper, separate interchangeable star wheels can be made for each size or shape of a container.
The machines are enclosed with Lexan polycarbonate panels and guards, door safety switches
