The capping station is composed of a column in which the cap distributor, the chute with the releasing head and the capping heads are installed.
The screw capping machines are manufactured in two versions:
– PPV for prethreaded plastic screw caps with “Pick & Place” system. The capping station is equipped with closing heads having a magnetic friction to adjust the closing force.
– VA ” for aluminum screw caps with “direct pick” system. The capping station is equipped with closing heads in stainless steel, complete with rolls that seal the cap to the container
In case of no container, the head doesn’t release the cap.
The caps distributor automatically and continuously feeds the chute and it is equipped with a “no cap” sensor.
In case the machine has to treat PET/PE/HDPE bottles, the filler can be equipped with a neck holding system.
