Cap lining machinery is commonplace and important for many products people use every single day. Simply put, they are high-speed production machines that safely secure containers and bottles. Packaging products would be more difficult and time-consuming without this revolutionary machinery. It is essential to understand that machines are highly customizable to meet the strict demands of assorted products and industries, which is why the medical and food industries rely so heavily on this technology.
The first major difference between machines is automatic Vs. semi-automatic functionality. The semi-automatic variety makes room for humans to deliver caps to bottles. The specifics of the systems vary depending on the needs of the production operation. For instance, a semi-automatic chuck capper is often presented as a tabletop variant allowing employees to place the bottle and cap comfortably because the machine seals the cap. Then, the process repeats. It is also possible to set a semi-automatic system on a conveyor belt that allows bottles to be automatically placed under the machinery (allowing the worker to place caps before the machine finalizes sealing).
When is a semi-automatic system the right choice?
A fully automated system makes more sense for many modern industries and businesses. Full automation is quicker, allows employees to be used better, and has a better margin of error, but that does not mean it is better in all situations. Semi-automatic cap lining machinery is perfect for smaller, growing operations and specialized production runs. It isn’t to say that one is better than the other, but that each has a specific function within a thriving business. Getting the type of system that works specifically for your needs is vital.
