Capping Machine Options and Features

A capping machine is designed for capping bottles, tins, or other types of containers. These machines are able to work with different formats by making some minimal changes to the configuration. Capping machines are designed to give the maximum benefit for the occupied space and achieve better performance and productivity.

A quality capping machine can also incorporate different features according to the specifications of each manufacturer or packaged product. Some of those functions might include the orientation of the cap in relation to the bottle or tin, verified quality controls, adjustable cadence, or multiple stages for different purposes, which are all customized.

Capping machine systems

The capping machine system is designed to be connected to a production line or conveyor belt with filled bottles. The product enters the machine from one side, and goes out the other side fully capped and ready for boxing. The configuration of the entrance and the exit can be made according to the requirements of the customer.

The capping machine must be joined with a cap feed system, which can be automatic or manual, and it also can be manufactured.

These machines can be totally customized according to what each client is looking for, without changing the ultimate purpose of the capping machine and maintaining the same overall mechanism.

Capping machine applications

This type of capping equipment applies all kinds of caps to a variety of container types – screw caps, pressure caps, mushrooms, pinned, etc. – by substituting the upper part of the feeding hopper of the plugs and the descendant channels, and sometimes the stapling spindle. It can also apply corkscrew caps flush, but in that case, supplementary capping parts may be necessary.

Capping machines are perfectly designed to cap and seal virtually any type of container, from glass and plastic bottles to Tetra packs and other container types. Container shapes and materials are carefully chosen by manufacturers to accomplish to specific purposes. For example, shelf stable juice needs a very strong and compressed container (Tetra pack) to protect it from aging, while dark glass is ideal to preserve wines and to facilitate the aging process for wineries.

As manufacturers are well aware, each container type needs a very specific cap to isolate the final product from any external agents that may affect, alter, modify, or damage the product before the final customer takes it home and opens it. In any case, the capping process is mandatory for the good preservation of the product, and a capping machine can help boost the reliability and efficiency of that process.
