Semi-Automatic Screw Capping Machine - Pneumatic

This air operated bench-top capper suitable for closing twist off, snap on or plastic screw on caps. The operator puts the cap in the chuck or on the container’s mouth (for twist off or plastic screw on caps) and pushes the two buttons placed at both sides of the machine base. The closing head descends toward the bottle, tightening the cap, while a pneumatic system blocks the container preventing it from spinning. The torque can be adjusted up 6.3 Nm according to the force required to tighten the cap properly. A hand wheel with a counter provides a fine reference for the capping head height. The whole system that holds the pneumatic motor can be adjusted in height; in this way, the machine is very versatile and can close bottles up to 350 mm tall. The PLUS version features a new pneumatic motor with s/steel case and excellent torque accuracy and repeatability. Three versions are available: twist off metal lids. Plastic screw caps on containers that can resist a vertical pressure. Version with custom made collar for holding the neck of a low-density plastic bottle which body cannot withstand a vertical load.
