The PMC Industries line of crimper machines and pump cappers includes several models that apply all styles of pump caps and many other closures. These machines can apply anywhere from 60 to 300 caps per minute. The ERC-1600 capper, for example, is designed for spout pump capping and lotion pump capping applications. This model is also equipped to handle dispensing pumps up to 2 liters. The Trigger Capper/Screw Capper can run both trigger pumps and screw caps with diptubes.
The automatic rotary trigger capper is used in medium-volume production and can be configured to work with a variety of bottles and caps. It has a variable speed range between 10 and 200 BpM and is able to seal trigger and pump caps on many different types of bottles. It can be programmed to apply caps on a variety of different containers, including pump and twist-off bottles. The rotary trigger capper can also be set to cap a variety of different containers and canisters.
In addition to the trigger capper, there are several other types of trigger caps available. Trigger caps are perfect for many applications and can be used with your existing capping machine or inline filler. Unlike other types of rotary nozzles, these machines are easy to maintain and require less training to run. The Trigger S trigger capper by CMI Industries is a great option for non-corrosive applications. Trigger S trigger capping machines are available with up to 3 screwing heads and a throughput of up to 1,500 pieces per hour.
The ALANTRA is a high-speed, torque-measured capper for the pharmaceutical, food and cosmetic industries. The ALANTRA’s adjustable torque controls provide precise torque measurement to close various trigger types. The ALANTRA is available in fully automated and semi-automatic models. With the latest controls and stainless steel construction, the ALANTRA provides an effective and reliable solution for many capping needs. It also includes an optional retorquer to prevent leaking caps.
Another option is the Z6 capping module, which can increase productivity, although this machine is limited to 25 bottles per minute. The downside of this machine is that the bottles are low-quality. They will crush easily during feeding and separation. Soft packages can also get labeled incorrectly. Additionally, trigger closures have long straws whereas cosmetic pumps have short straws, making it harder to use scissors. Despite the limitations of trigger cappers, they are a great choice for many bottle packaging applications.
The Vanguard chuck offers ergonomic advantages to handheld capping machines. The standard chuck and liner require downward force during the capping process to grip the cap. If this downward force is not present, the cap will slide over the chuck and over the cap, resulting in the breakage of the bottle. Hence, the ALANTRA Automatic Air Pump and Trigger Nozzle Capping Machine is an excellent choice. In addition to the ease of use, the ALANTRA Automatic Air Pump and Trigger Nozzle Capping Machine comes with a SECOMA SiteManager 1139 modem that allows remote monitoring and diagnostics.
