Cap Tighteners

Cap Tightening Machinery and Cap Retorquing Equipment

Inline Cap tightening machines are commonly used for multiple purposes.  For instance many specialty caps such as pump sprayers or trigger sprayers do not lend themselves easily to automatic sorting systems and are thus placed by hand onto the bottles. But production speeds are such that hand tightening is not an option.  A cap tightener fits nicely into this situation, with options such as trigger sprayer alignment also available.

Another use is for smaller operations that just don’t quite have the resources to fully automate their capping system, but need to speed up beyond hand-held cap tighteners.  In this case the operators simply start the caps as they run down the conveyor and the cap tightener does the rest.

A third use is for retorquing operations. Inductions sealers are commonly used in today’s packaging environment for the dual purpose of tamper evident packaging and prevention of spillage during shipment or in the retail setting (liability). So while the cap may have originally been applied and tightened automatically, induction sealing tends to loosen the cap. So in this case, a tightener backs up as a cap retorquer.

However, in some cases a higher degree of torque requirements are needed such as rejection of undertorqued caps and bottles.  This is where the CVC-1208 cap retorquer fits the bill, since it has the capability of obtaining a final torque readout and can initiate a rejection sequence when required torque is not reached.

Also available are hand-held cap tighteners and table top cap tightening machines.
