Adding cap closing technology to an automated assembly system is highly beneficial, but only when the cap closing machine is set up to the exact specifications of your application. When designing a system, often, engineers break the design into two basic categories. Rotary chuck cappers and in-line cappers. Both machines are immensely beneficial for improving production speed while reducing manufacturing costs, but they are dramatically different in their core design. Both types are different in the techniques they use to apply and secure closures.
Beyond understanding the difference between machine categories, there are many other considerations when designing cap closing machines. Important considerations include:
Cap Size – An in-line capper system is often limited by the diameter of the cap that can be applied. Ideal capping applications require a large enough diameter of the closer to creating enough torque to safely secure caps.
Cap Shape – Chuck applications process round, square, rectangular, tapered, oval, and tapered caps. In-line systems mostly process round caps
Evident Bands – When TE (tamper evident) is needed, chuck-style systems offer many benefits over in-line capping. When cap closing machines are not properly created, the cap commonly sits crooked. Chuck-style systems deliver a strong, downward force that helps secure the cap and the closure.
Engineering assembly machines require a great deal of problem-solving before the perfect system is built. Trusting professionals when designing automated assembly systems and cap closing machines ensures that your business gets exactly what it needs.
