Our PCM-1A-P Auto Capper is an automatic cap tightener designed to mount on to continuously running slat-type conveyors. The PCM-1A-P is capable of tightening a vast range of threaded closures at rates of up to 60UPM (units per minute).
During operation, containers will arrive at the Auto Capper by an inline conveyor, with caps pre-positioned upstream either manually or by automatic cap placement equipment. A whisker switch detects the presence of a container and initiates machine operation through a pneumatic timer control unit.
The control unit of the PCM-1A-P enables fast set-ups and simple fine tuning of cycles through its programmable timer and digital display or pneumatic controls. The delay and operating dwell times of the cap tightening chuck and the container clamping jaws and gating can be freely set by push buttons or knobs on the front panel.
The twin timer control unit with separate settings for chuck and jaws/gates, provides substantially increased flexibility when running bottles at higher speeds and /or with difficult components.
The PCM-1A-P Auto Capper is supplied complete with a conveyor or conveyor mounting frame, pneumatic container gating and clamping devices, and aluminium clamping jaws (with non-marking friction facing) of either the general purpose V-Jaw type or contoured to the individual container profile. Jaws for glass containers are supplied with plastic slippers to prevent the container scoring the conveyor during the bottling process.
