What Is a Capping Machine?

Posted

Capping machines are a vital asset to any liquid packaging line. Cappers will make sure that all containers are sufficiently sealed and protected from damage following the filling process, preparing them for the next step in manufacturing. Using a high-quality capping machine will ultimately give your production line what it needs to thrive. Here we’ll review the different types of cappers and how they can help maximize the efficiency of your packaging processes.

Choose from Different Types of Cappers Depending on Production Requirements

There are several bottle capping machines that you can install in your packaging lines, depending on product specifications.

Some of the different capping machines you can purchase include:

  • Chuck cappers

In addition to these capping machines, you may also want to consider accessory machines for inline capping systems. These can include:

  • Cap pre-feeders
  • Cap elevators
  • Cap sorters

Using a combination of these machines, you can efficiently apply caps to nearly any type of container, regardless of shape or size.

Maintaining Efficiency with Dependable Cappers

There are many types of products that can benefit from the use of efficient capping machines. You can use them to package a wide range of products in nearly any type of industry, such as:

  • Liquid foods and sauces
