Capping machines are used for the application of plastic and metal threaded caps as well as plastic snap caps, some fitments and some types of corks and plugs. Capping is usually the most difficult aspect of a liquid packaging line for several reasons. Sometimes the range of geometries and sizes of caps and bottles is so wide that the capping machine components become expensive or the platform of that particular type of capping machine is not suitable for all sizes and geometries in the range. Sometimes the bottle and cap combination are not ideal with the threads of the bottle being in conflict with the threads of the cap and great force is needed to apply the cap. Sometimes caps can only be placed vertically on the container which increases the capital cost of the machinery. Inline Filling Systems understands these issues very well and has a capping machine to address every one of these capping challenges.
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.
VKPAK manufactures a wide variety of capping equipment to secure most cap types onto a wide assortment of bottle types. Our capping machines utilize the latest technologies to achieve the highest speeds and most accurately capped bottles on the market. We manufacture three different styles of capping systems: Chuck Cappers, Spindle Cappers, and Snap Cappers.
In any liquid packaging line, having reliable cap machines is essential. These machines ensure that after the bottles go through the container filler station, they are fully sealed and prepared for their next step in the chain of manufacturing, whether that means selling to a distributor, selling directly to a customer, or otherwise. Using a bottle capper from VKPAK will help complete your packaging line and will help ensure that the products you sell are packaged in a high quality manner.
Reliable, Quality Bottle Capping Equipment
Efficient bottle capping machines are important in liquid packaging systems. Depending on the type of caps a product requires, different types of capping machines will be involved in the capping process, including accessory capping machinery. E-PAK Machinery carries several kinds of machines for capping bottles in packaging lines.
