Equipped with the new servo-driven, patent-pending cap elevator-feeder, which features adjustable cleats and indexes on demand, NJM has increased the speed of this continuous-motion capper by 50 percent. Now rivaling the high speeds of complex rotary cappers, the in-line beltorque caps up to 300 bottles per minute with simple mechanics, fast changeovers and low maintenance to ease use and reduce the total cost of ownership. Precise torque and gentle handling maximize product quality.
Unlike traditional in-line cappers that use discs or spindles, this two-station capper-torquer uses two pairs of belts to gently rotate and tighten caps. Using patented technology, one drive synchronizes the linear displacement speed of the container with the rotating speed of the closure, even when the cap stops turning. This innovative design maximizes product quality by eliminating damage to the cap knurling and cap finish. It also minimizes slippage to achieve more consistent torque values, which prevents leakers and reduces rework associated with out-of-tolerance rejects. Precision tooling minimizes skewed caps.
The beltorque Capper is ideal for pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, cosmetics and personal care products as well as foods and beverages. It handles round, oval, square and rectangular bottles made of plastic or glass from 2 to 12 inches (50 to 305 mm) in height and from 0.5 to 7 inches (12 to 175 mm) in diameter with caps made of plastic or metal that are up to 4.75 inches (120 mm) in diameter.
