The automatic capping machine Capline ROT is designed for closing various types of containers (made of plastic, glass and metal) with screw, press-on and pilfer proof caps. The machine is especially suitable for use in the food-processing, cosmetic and chemical industries.
The machine can be equipped with different types of cap unscrambler (vibrating, rotary, belt type) depending on the type and size of the cap. For feeding the caps into the cap unscrambler the caps hopper is available. For placing difficult caps onto the container neck the “Pick and Place” system can be used. The machine can be equipped with different controls, e.g. cap (under-cap) presence control, which can be connected to a mechanism of no cap (under-cap) bottles rejection.
The containers are transferred to the star wheel by means of the conveyor. The star wheel (indexing type for one-head capper or continuous motion for multiple-head capper) takes the containers and carries them to the caps placing station and than to the closing head. The closing head tightens the cap with the necessary torque (if the head is of the pressure type, it will press the cap on the bottle neck by means of a spring unit). The torque can be set on the closing head by means of magnetic clutch. After completion of the closing process, the star wheel moves the container to the conveyor.
