When it comes to the filling industry in today’s time, having the right equipment and machinery is a must-have if you want your business to operate successfully. One of these necessities is a good capping machine. Having a good capping machine might not seem important, but let us assure you that it is. Capping the containers manually is not the best way you can go about it. Making sure that the cap is tight enough or even sealed properly is something that will take a long time. A good capping machine will not only do that in a fraction of the time, but it will also ensure that your product is secured and most importantly sanitary. This is not something that should be overlooked easily. These are just a few benefits that a capping machine will bring to your business.
If you are interested in the topic, we will go over several different benefits that a capping machine can bring to your business. So, without any more delay, let us begin.
Types of Capping Machines
First of all, we will briefly go over different types of capping machines. Our main focus will be on the three most common choices. We will go over snap cappers, spindle cappers, and chuck cappers. Now, before we actually dive into different types, let’s go over how these machines actually work and what parts they consist of. There are three basic types of capping machinery, cap sorters, cap elevators, and lastly capping machines themselves. This is all quite self-explanatory. Cap sorters have the job of sorting the caps in the right position, cap elevators are constantly supplying the system with caps, and finally, the capping machine does the capping itself.
First, let’s talk about the snap cappers. Snap cappers are really quite simple. They work by pressing snap-on caps onto passing containers. That being said, the fully automatic ones are probably the way to go as they will do the majority of the job themselves. Semi-automatic and manual ones will require that you do additional work. Next up we have spindle cappers. As you can probably tell from the name, these machines work on a spinning principle. When the container is moving through the machine, it needs to come to a stop so the machine can spin the cap onto them.
Last but not least, we have the chuck cappers. They are quite similar to the spindle cappers; the fact is that they differ in only one aspect. Like the spindle cappers, chuck cappers also work on the same principle of spinning the cap onto the container. However, in the case of chuck cappers, the container does not stop moving at all. Now that we have covered what these machines are and how they work, here are the benefits that they can bring to your business.
Benefits of a Capping Machine
Getting a cap machine for your business will bring you a lot of benefits. They will boost your productivity to the next level and in some cases are even necessary if you want your business to succeed. With that being said, here are the benefits that a capping machine can bring you your business.
They are easy to use
There is nothing complicated about these machines. Not counting the process of setting it up, there is not much to worry about. The only thing that you need to do is to supply the machine with caps while it is running. Additionally, when you are switching between containers and different caps, you will have to do some minor adjustments. This is nothing to worry about as it is quite simple to adjust with a switch.
The speed at which you can produce the product is really important. The faster your capping process is, the more containers you can produce. Manual capping simply cannot compete with the speed of a bottle capping machine.
It is Consistent
A good bottle capping machine will always provide you with a consistent quality product. Consistency is especially important if you have a large-scale production line. The capping machine will ensure that there is no blockage in the production line. With the capping part working perfectly, you can be sure that the packaging will also work without any problems.
There are several different types of capping machines out there. However, a capping machine can be compatible with several different cap sizes and bottles. When there is a need to switch to a different cap, all you have to do is replace the capping head on the machine. If the new cap works with the same principle, there will be no problem at all.
When it comes to setting up one of these machines, there is nothing to worry about; they are easily integrated into any production line. If your production line lacks conveyors, you can rest assured as these machines can come with their own conveyors if necessary.
