Which Capper Can Supercharge Your Business?
Technology is arguably the hallmark of human society, the impulse to improve our practices and develop new approaches to achieve top efficiency. It’s natural and very wise to place your confidence in new technologies that better adapt to your current needs and the demands of the present market. For manufacturers of products sold in bottles or other containers, this is no different when considering the technology that goes into your capper machine.
Any company can benefit from improved efficiency by choosing from the two classic caper machine designs, the in-line capper and the rotary chuck style capper, considering your business needs.
The latest in capper machine technology
There are two well-known and basic categories in capping machine technology, and it’s important to understand a little about how each can impact your company in terms of initial investment and long-term performance. These two basic technologies are the inline capper and the rotary chuck style capper. And although new technologies are always emerging, the same considerations should serve as a guide for future entrepreneurs.
There are always a few key considerations to make when deciding on the correct capping technology for your business: the overall cost of the initial investment and cost of replacement and accessory parts, footprint, operating speed and torque accuracy, cap size, cap shape, tamper evident bands, container size and closure style capabilities, etc.
In-line vs. rotary capper machines
For example, the rotary chuck style caper can be 4-10 times as expensive as the in-line just for the purchase of the base machine. Accessory parts are also cheaper for the in-line capper and you avoid the cost for bottle handling change parts since their side gripping belts can adjust for different container sizes. There are many cases where you can mount the in-line caper over an existing section of the bottle conveyor, and the overall footprint of the in-line is much smaller.
However, when you take a look at the operating time, you’ll find that the rotary design is much more efficient. This type of capper can be supplied with as many as 40 containers at a time and process anywhere from 10 to 1200 bottles per minute, compared with a typical maximum speed of 200 bottles per minute for the in-line capping. The rotary capper also has the advantage when it comes to cap size and shape considerations.
As you can see, there’s a lot to consider, but a thoughtful review of these two technologies can help you get started in the search for the right capping machine based on the unique needs of your business.
