LPE Can Capping Machines

Capping is one of the hardest aspects in liquid packaging lines for various reasons such as the following:

1.Wide size and geometry ranges of bottles and caps. As a result of this, either the components of the capping machine become costly or the machine type platform is not usable for all geometry and size ranges.

2.Incompatibility of the cap and bottle combination. Sometimes, the bottle thread is incompatible with the cap thread which requires the application of great force for the capping to be completed.

LPE understands the aforementioned issues and gives you various can capping machine or tin capping machine types with attractive price to address these challenges. You can customize your own capping machine to suit different cap geometries and sizes to improve your production capacity.

Our various Snap Capper Machines and Screw Capping Machines for sale will automate your packaging system and reduce your production costs.

What is a Can Capping Machine?

Dustproof snap capper machineCan, tin, or jar capping machines are one of the machines used in the automation of packaging lines. They are used to apply:

  • Plastic snap caps
  • Metal and plastic threaded caps
  • Fitments
  • Some plug and cork types

With the various products found on shelves today, can capping machines have many different tasks they need to perform. Different cap types have their own purposes, from opening resistance to the simplicity and ease of dispensing. The container or bottle, its purpose, and other factors are going to determine which can capping machine is ideal for a given project.

A can capping machine can either be automatic or semi-automatic. An automatic capping machine comes with a delivery system for the caps such as a vibratory bowl or a cap elevator. A semi-automatic machine, on the other hand, will usually need manual placement of the caps before capping.

 

Types of Capping Machines

#1 Screw On Type Capper Machines

Screw-on cap types are among the most common closure types in today’s packaging industry. You can find these caps in various formats such as:

  • Sports caps
  • Trigger sprayers
  • Pump sprayers
  • Flip-top caps
  • Simple flat lids

Each of the mentioned formats include a simple threading allowing you to screw the lid on a container creating a seal. There are two capping machine types for screw-on caps: spindle and chuck capping machines.

Spindle Capping Machines

Spindle capping machines use a spinning disc to tighten the caps and are suitable for automatic systems. When combined with a conveyor system, they allow for an automatic feeding of caps for continuous capping.

Chuck Capping Machines

Rather than using discs, chuck capping machines use a capping head (chuck) They sometimes come with rubber inserts for lowering the caps and applying torque to produce a seal.

Although spindle and chuck cappers can be made in both automatic and semi-automatic designs, you can mostly find chuck cappers as semi-automatic. LPE’s capper machines are all in automatic designs.

#2 Snap Capper Machines

Snap capper machines are used on containers with snap caps and can either be automatic or semi-automatic. LPE’s Children Safety Snap Capping Machine and Dustproof Snap Capper Machine are fully automatic.

Snap cappers usually use a plunger or a snap on belt for the application of pressure in snapping the cap into the containers. Moreover, manufacturers can often combine the device for snapping the caps with spindle wheels. This creates a capping machine that is able to do both screw-on and snap type caps which works best for contractual packagers or companies that have different packages.

#3 Bottle Corking Machines

Bottle corking machines are also becoming popular because of the increasing number of wineries and distilleries. They can come in automatic and semi-automatic designs also. For automatic bottle corking machines, the corks are supplied using a chute and cap elevator. While in semi-automatic ones, the operator needs to manually place the cork and start the process after the cork-bottle combination is ready through a switch. LPE does not manufacture bottle corking machines.

 

Major Components of a Can Capping Machine

Automatic can capping machines will have either a vibratory bowl or a cap elevator to feed the caps to the containers.

#2 Press On Head

These are found in snap capping machines and are used to snap or tighten the cap to the containers by pressing the cap towards the container.

#3 Rotary Clincher

Screw capper machines have rotary clinchers used to tighten the lids to the containers.

#4 Conveyor Belt

The conveyor belt is continuously moving metal or rubber used to move the containers and caps to the capping zone.

How Can Capping Machines Work

Snap Capper machines simply snap the lid onto the container holding the product. The working principle of automatic and semi-automatic snap capping machines are similar except automatic snap cappers include a lid feeder unlike semi-automatic ones. Screw capping machines work the same way as snap capper machines except they use rotary clinchers to tighten the container lids.

First, for automatic snapping machines, the lids are delivered from the lid feeder while the containers move towards the capping zone through the conveyor belt. Then the lid is placed onto the container creating a cap-container combination.

For semi-automatic snap and screw cappers, the lid is manually placed on the container first before the operator puts them on the machine. The cap-container combination travels through the machine’s capping zone via the conveyor belt then the steps below will follow.

For Snap Capping Machines

The snap capping machine’s press on head applies pressure onto the cap to secure the sealing.

For Screw Capping Machines

The screw capping machine’s clincher applies torque on the threaded caps to secure the tightness of the seal.
