Automatic Chuck Capper places and torques caps automatically. The Cap Sorter (sold separately) sorts the caps which are individually picked up by the mechanical swing arm and moved to the Chuck Head while containers are stabilized by the Pneumatic Bottle Gripping Assembly. After the Chuck Head applies appropriate torque to the cap, the container moves down Conveyor.
This capping machine is specifically designed to be highly versatile, with fast changeover. It will apply caps at a rate of up to 25-40per minute, depending upon cap size. this is available with a servo motor upgrade. It comes equipped with our vertical dial pin hopper/sorter. conveyor, control panel, variable speed motors, and controls are all standard.
The machine can handle caps ranging from 20-65mm.
Cap moves by gravity through an easily adjusted Stainless Steel top cap chute into a Stainless Steel cap chute end. Cap transfer button strips the cap out of the chute end after receiving a signal that a container is in place. An air-actuated mechanical chuck Ball screw rod up and down to pick up the cap. It then Ball screw rod down to torque the cap onto the container with a patented Heavy Duty Clutched station for accurate torque control without “scuffing” or “burning” the caps. This clutch function can be done through the servo motor.
