Automatic In-Line Capping Machines

The automatic in-line capping machine is a type of packaging machine that is used to apply caps or other closures to containers in a production line. The machine can handle a range of caps sizes and types and can automatically sort, feed and apply the caps onto the containers as they move along the conveyor system. The cap tightening mechanism applies a specific torque to the cap to ensure that it is tightly sealed onto the container.

Machine range

The Tedelta in-line indexing capping machine is a single-head automatic capping machine designed for medium-speed lines. Each machine is manufactured with the correct number of pockets and pitch between pockets to suit the container size and output requirements. These capping machines can handle plastic screw caps, T-cork closures, (Roll on Pilfer Proof) ROPP caps, (Glass Packaging Institute) GPI caps, push-on caps or a combination of them all.

The caps are loaded into a hopper located on the working level of the line. These caps are then elevated using either a waterfall system or a flighted belt elevator. Once above the machine, the caps drop into a centrifugal sorter that orientates the caps and dispenses them into a cap chute down to the capping heads. The transfer to the container can be done with a direct pick method where the container picks the cap directly out of the cap chute. Alternatively, they can be presented to the capping head using a pick-and-place indexing peg system. The containers are presented to the machine automatically using a conveyor system. Once at the capper in-feed the containers are moved into a pocket on the indexing star wheel as it rotates towards the cap head.

  • Magnetic – Bi-polar magnetic clutch to disengage at the correct application torque.
  • Hysteresis – Hysteresis magnetic clutch to disengage at the correct application torque.
  • ROPP – Where the thread is formed by the capping head on aluminium closures.
  • Push on – Where no rotation is required, and the closures are pushed onto the container.
  • T cork – Where the closure is pushed into the neck finish of the container.
  • Vacuum – When the caps are fragile or non-uniform and require delicate handling.
