Capping machines are used for the application of plastic and metal threaded caps as well as plastic snap caps, some fitments and some types of corks and plugs. Capping is usually the most difficult aspect of a liquid packaging line for several reasons. Sometimes the range of geometries and sizes of caps and bottles is so wide that the capping machine components become expensive or the platform of that particular type of capping machine is not suitable for all sizes and geometries in the range. Sometimes the bottle and cap combination are not ideal with the threads of the bottle being in conflict with the threads of the cap and great force is needed to apply the cap. Sometimes caps can only be placed vertically on the container which increases the capital cost of the machinery. Inline Filling Systems understands these issues very well and has a capping machine to address every one of these capping challenges.
NPACK manufactures a wide variety of capping equipment to secure most cap types onto a wide assortment of bottle types. Our capping machines utilize the latest technologies to achieve the highest speeds and most accurately capped bottles on the market. We manufacture three different styles of capping systems: Chuck Cappers, Spindle Cappers, and Snap Cappers.
