How does a Bottle Cap Machine Work? Professional1 week ago - Mobile Devices - Makurdi - 15 views
Bottle Cap Machines can be manufactured in several different ways to handle the cap and bottle combination to be used on a packaging line. Of course, almost any capping machine can be built to run production semi-automatically or automatically. But different machines will also be built to handle different types of caps, from screw caps to snap on caps and ROPP caps. The operation of each type of Cap Compression Machine will differ as to the method used to tighten or seal the closures.
The Auxiliary Equipment like spindle capper is probably the most popular automatic capping machine for screw type caps. This capper receives bottles with caps already set in place and then automatically tightens the caps using several sets of matched spinning disks, or spindle wheels. The capping process will run continuously without bottles stopping for indexing, cap placement or any other reason.
Of course, in order to remain consistent and reliable, the spindle capper must stabilize the bottle as it passes through the disks that will spin down the screw cap. Gripper side belts and cap stabilizers hold the caps and bottles in place as they move through the capping machine. The gripper belts will be used on the side of the bottle to keep it upright and in position during the capping process. Some applications will require a capping machine with double gripper belts to keep tall or odd shaped bottles stabilized. The cap stabilizer will keep pressure on the top of the cap from placement on the bottle to (at least) the point where the bottle and cap are introduced to the spindle wheels.
