Price Guide (Inc GST): POA

Containers arrive at the machine by conveyor, with caps pre-placed upstream either manually or by automatic cap placement equipment.

A photo electric sensor or whisker switch detects the presence of a container and initiates machine operation through an electronic or pneumatic timer control unit.

The control unit 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 pushbuttons 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 at higher speeds and /or with difficult components.

The AAC-1 Auto is supplied complete with a conveyor or conveyor mounting frame, pneumatic container gating and clamping devices, and aluminum 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.

Our range of 5 standard interchangeable tightening chuck sizes and 3 standard liner materials will handle most capping applications. Chucks are also available for specialsed closures such as Tamper-tel, eyedropper etc.

For trigger pack sprays, cream dispensers, mist pumps and other closures which cannot be tightened from above the Asset Pumptite unit is available as a bolt on optional item, see PT-7 spec page.

We can supply the AAC-1 Auto ready for the customer to adapt to their existing conveyor or we can provide a complete on site installation service including conveyor mounting, guide rails etc.
