If you’re a manufacturer of bottles, an automatic screw capping machine can make your work a lot easier. These machines are available in various designs, which can be customized according to the raw materials, capacity, and space of your factory. The four-stage manufacturing process includes a set of standard parts, as well as an adjustable bottle height gauge. Here’s a closer look at what makes a good screw capping machine.
First, you should understand the types of automatic capping machines on the market. There are chuck cappers, spindle cappers, and others. Each one has its own set of technical specifications, and each one will require a specific alignment technique to properly place a cap. This is a major consideration, because a chuck capper can only handle lighter containers, while a spindle-type machine can handle heavy containers.
Another important feature is the ability to customize a screw capping machine. You can choose the type based on the raw materials, production capacity, and factory space. You can customize the design of your machine according to your needs. The process begins by setting up the equipment with the necessary parts, such as screws and caps. During the trial run, the LPE engineer will use sample bottles to test the equipment’s functionality. This way, the LPE engineer can make sure that the machine will work without any problems, without affecting the quality of your production.
Automatic capping machines may have some limitations. Some types may not be compatible with the container type. Depending on the size and weight of the caps you are using, you’ll need to specify the torque range to ensure proper sealing. The torque range will determine the tightness of the cap. It’s best to specify the sensitivity level when ordering an automatic capping machine. However, other factors can also affect the choice of the machine. The amount of money you invest will determine whether you can afford to purchase a high-quality machine.
There are some benefits to using an automatic screw capping machine. The first is that it is fully automated. In addition to being aseptic, an automatic screw capping machine can also be adjusted to fit a variety of containers. The other advantage of an automatic screw capper is that it increases production output and increases productivity. Further, its features include an optional bottle cap guide mechanism, which makes it even easier to ensure consistency when pumping and uncapping.
Different types of automatic capping machines use different parts to make the caps. A chuck capper is a type that uses a rotating hammer to insert a cap into a bottle. A spindle capper is the most common and is the only type of automatic screw capping machine that requires no manual labor. The chucks and inserts are designed for varying sizes of bottles. Moreover, they are reusable, so they can be used again.
