What are bottle capping machines used for?

A bottle capping machine is used to apply a cap, or lid, to a bottle to seal it for transportation and sale. Regardless of whether the cap is made of plastic or metal, screw-on lids, crown caps, snap caps or ROPP (Roll on Pilfer Proof) covers, the bottle capping machine attaches and seals the relevant cap ready for the finished object to be shipped. Bottle capping machines are used extensively in the food and beverage industry to cap plastic and glass bottles. Milk, beer and wine are a few of the beverages that these systems are used to seal, as well as cooking oils and vinegars.

Likewise in the pharmaceutical, toiletry and cosmetic industries, many liquid medications are sealed and sent to consumers in either plastic or glass bottles, and bottle capping equipment will ensure the antibacterial and sterile seal of these vital liquids. Some chemical products, such as those used for cleaning or home improvement, are best sealed efficiently by a bottle sealing machine to prevent the danger of chemical burns or corrosion from the contents.

Bottle capping machines are available in manual, semi-automatic and automatic formats, where each can be connected as a part of your production line to rinsing, filling and labelling machines to create a fully automated procedure from start to finish. The bottle capping system needed, and the way of connecting it to your production line, will be as different as the commodities your company produces. However, these systems can easily be modified to fit your production processes and can vastly speed up your production as well as ensure a professional, uniform finish within a sterile condition.

Benefits of Bottle Capping Equipment

Bottle capping equipment is integrated into production lines to vastly speed up the efficiency and output of production. Plastic and glass bottle capping machines can be easily configured to allow your production line to change the capping of different products. Changing products for alternative-sized bottles with varying threads, or sizes and types of lids, makes bottle cap closing machines an extremely flexible addition to any assembly line.

Bottle capping machines work in various ways according to the requirement of the bottle, cap or lid and the product being packaged. Some systems work by spinning the cap onto the bottle, others by pressing a snap-on, or ROPP, cap down over the bottle opening, whilst still others may place a plug or cork inside the bottle’s neck, for example, a wine bottle capping machine.

Various types of machines that can seal, rinse, and fill bottles are available depending on the requirements of the company’s production processes. Many models of our bottle capping machines can be used to seal a wide variety of bottles or other containers without any modification necessary, merely requiring reprogramming on its display. This makes them extremely versatile for companies that ship a wide selection of products. Machines can handle heat-sensitive products where necessary, too.

Some of the industries which use bottle capping machines include:

  • food and beverages;
  • cleaning products;
  • pharmaceutical, medical and veterinary;
  • cosmetics and toiletries;
  • home improvement and building products for decorating;
  • and so many more.
