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.
The fully automatic inline capping machine applies caps to a container by stripping them out of a chute in the path of the moving container and placing them over the mouth of the container. The container is gripped by two belts moving at the same speed of the conveyor in order to stabilize the container. Two opposing and pulsating cap tightening belts then torque the threaded caps onto the containers as they pass through on the moving conveyor. Capping speeds of nominally 200 containers per minute are attainable on this machine depending on cap size and container configuration.
The NPACK automatic cap tightener features a touchscreen display and easy to navigate menu. It displays real time production information, including the number of caps it has tightened and the production rate in bottles per minute. All program adjustments are at your fingertips to provide you with complete control over the capping machine. Capping programs can be saved and stored for future use.
