There are several types of Bottle Capping Machines available for use in the packaging industry. These machines are available in different sizes, speeds, capacities. They can be either fully automated or manually operated. You must choose the right capping machine for your production line.
Chuck cappers are machines that attach caps to bottles quickly. They are ideal for production lines that produce large quantities of bottles per minute. They are more complex and technical, so they may not work well if you have a smaller production line that produces less than 400 bottles a minute.
Automatic capping machines (ACM) – These capping devices are smaller and can handle more bottles than chuck capspers. However, they need to be set up before they can go on the production line. These machines come in different styles, but all have sets of spinning disks that can grab and tighten the caps as they run through them.
These machines are used primarily in beverages, including bottled water. They can also used in other industries like food or pharmaceuticals.
They come equipped with a power conveyor, cap delivery system, and a cap delivery device that aids them in running the entire process. However, they must be leveled and adjusted on the floor of the production plant before they can be used.
This adjustment allows for the spindle wheels to contact the ideal spot on the cap that allows torque without affecting stability. This setting can vary depending on the closure used. However, it is important to adjust it to ensure consistent seals every time the cap passes through the machine.
A stabilizer bar can also be used to ensure consistent seals. This bar is usually positioned between the sets of spindles, and it helps the cap stay stable through the entire capping process.
A stabilizer bar is essential because it prevents the cap tipping. This can lead either to a damaged container or loose seal. This can also affect the safety of your product and your business’s bottom line.
These caps can be used with many different closures. Screw caps, cork caps, and press-on closures are some of the most popular.
For closures without threads, a silicone or rubber lining material is applied to the top of the cap. This lining material is then squeezed between the caps and the container to create a secure seal that cannot be removed easily.
There are also tamper-proof caps, which don’t have threads but change in appearance when they are removed. These caps can be used to protect a variety products, such as food, pharmaceuticals, or chemicals.
They are built for high output and are perfect for large organizations with high production rates. They come with many features that enhance performance.
