Fully Automatic Continuous Motion Press Capping Machine

Machine Description:

The King Technocap C100 is an advanced fully automatic bottle press capping machine designed to efficiently cap plastic and glass bottles of various shapes (including round, square, and flask designs).

Key Features:
  1. Robust Construction: The machine features a sturdy base cabinet with fully interlocked guarding, integrated electrical/pneumatics control panel, and conveyor system. The stainless-steel framework, adjustable articulated feet, and sealed lockable front and rear access panels ensure durability and security. Designed to withstand continuous operation, providing long-lasting performance and reliability.
  2. User-Friendly Interface: The machine is equipped with a user-friendly interface, typically featuring a touchscreen panel. This interface allows operators to easily set parameters, monitor the capping process, and make adjustments as needed.
  3. High-Speed Operation: The rotary press capping machine is designed for efficient and high-speed capping of bottles. It can cap a large number of bottles in a short period, maximizing productivity.
  4. Efficient Drive Train: The machine utilizes a 3-phase drive train with a gearbox for the main turret, equipped with a captive cam. This setup ensures smooth and reliable motion during the capping process.
  5. Versatile Capping Capabilities: The machine is capable of handling various types of caps, including snap-on caps, press-on caps, and more. It provides flexibility to accommodate different bottle and cap styles. The machine employs vacuum capping chucks that accurately grip the caps. The capping movement is controlled by profiled cam and followers, guaranteeing precise and consistent cap placement.
  6. Cap Feeder and Stand: It comes with a free-standing waterfall cap feeder and stand featuring a gravity chute. The low-level cap control sensors ensure a continuous supply of caps for efficient capping operations.
  7. Precise Cap Placement: The rotary mechanism of the machine ensures precise cap placement on each bottle. This guarantees uniform and accurate capping, reducing the chances of leakage or misalignment.
  8. Easy Cap Changeover: The machine facilitates quick and easy cap changeover, allowing for smooth transitions between different types of caps. This feature enhances operational efficiency and minimizes downtime during production.
  9. Compact Footprint: The machine is designed with a compact footprint, making it suitable for integration into existing production lines or limited space environments. Its space-saving design optimizes floor space utilization.
  10. Easy Maintenance: Rotary press capping machine is designed for easy maintenance and cleaning. They feature accessible components and quick-release mechanisms, simplifying routine maintenance tasks and reducing downtime.
Operational Details:

The machine operates with a continuous motion system, where bottles are seamlessly transported by a conveyor to a rotating turret star wheel located beneath the press capping heads. To ensure precise cap placement, the caps are carefully oriented using a waterfall cap feeder and then supplied to the turret star wheel cluster.

Equipped with vacuum chucks, the capping heads descend and securely locates the caps. With a smooth motion, the chucks transfer the press caps onto the bottles, ensuring accurate and reliable capping.

Once the bottles are properly capped, they exit the machine. In the event of a blockage at the outfeed exit, a backup sensor promptly detects it and stops the capping process. The machine will remain idle until the exit is cleared, ensuring the smooth operation of the capping process.
