Lever Activated Bottle Gripping Base

The Lever Activated Base perfectly centers the bottle in preparation for capping and holds the bottle to prevent it from spinning during the capping process. The four continuously adjustable grippers can be set to center and hold any bottle regardless of its shape. It is an optional replacement for the standard base used with the SA™, ES Table Top™, and PumpCap™ Capping Machines.

The Lever Activated Base is particularly well suited for use with very short or narrow bottles. Very short containers are difficult to hold during the capping process. There is very little space for the operator’s hand to hold the container without being very close to the cap when the machine is tightening it. The Lever Activated Base holds the bottle firmly and allows the operator to remove their hands from the capping area while the cap is being tightened.

The Lever Activated Base works with bottles up to 6.5 inches in diameter. It is constructed of 304 stainless steel and hard coat anodized aluminum for outstanding corrosion resistance.

EZ Slide™ Grill

The EZ Slideā„¢ Grll is a plastic coated stainless steel grill. The grill provides a low friction surface which allows bottles to slide over the base easily and enables the operator to quickly center the bottle in preparation for capping. It is particularly helpful with large or heavy bottles that can otherwise be cumbersome to position for capping.

The stainless steel grill is spring loaded. Within the slots of the grill are strips of an extremely high friction rubber. The downward force generated during the capping process pushes the spring loaded grill down and pushes the bottom of the bottle firmly against the strips of rubber. The rubber strips are highly effective in preventing the bottle from spinning during the capping process. If the strips do not completely prevent the bottle from spinning during the capping process, only the slightest of assistance from the operator is required.

The EZ Slide Grill can be added to the standard base and accommodates bottles up to 7.25 inches in diameter.

Adjustable Sliding Arms - Square/Rectangular Bottle Holders

Adjustable Sliding Arms can be added to the Backstop of the standard base to allow for easy centering of a square or rectangular bottle under the capping motor in preparation for capping.

The arms are attached to the two grooves that run parallel to the V-shape of the Backstop. The arms can be positioned anywhere along these grooves to accommodate any square or rectangular bottle up to 8.5 inches in width. The arms are available in 2, 3, 4 and 5 inch lengths.

Machined Chucks

Machined chucks are custom made to fit the rib pattern of a particular cap.  They fit the cap in the same way as a socket fits a nut.  Machined chucks provide extreme gripping power that make them very useful for certain types of challenging jobs, a few of which are described below

  • De-Capping
    The vast majority of de-capping jobs require a machined chuck. In most cases a standard chuck with inserted liner cannot provide enough gripping power to remove a tight cap. Generally what occurs is that the liner simply skids over the cap without removing it.

    Machined chucks grip a cap so perfectly that it makes the removal of even the tightest of caps very easy.
  • Clean Room & Sterile Environments
    The urethane or white rubber inserts within a standard chuck will wear slowly over time and can occasionally leave very small amounts of urethane or white rubber particles on the caps they tighten. These particles may not be allowed in certain clean, sterile or controlled environments.

    Machined chucks are ideal for clean environments since they do not wear and do not create particles.

    Machined chucks also improve torque accuracy and never have to be replaced.
  • Extreme Torque Applications
    When a cap has to be applied with an unusual or extreme level of tightness, a machined chuck is the perfect solution. A machined chuck can always apply as much torque as is necessary and will do so quite easily. Machined chucks also improve torque accuracy and never have to be replaced.

Machined chucks cannot be purchased through our shopping cart. Please contact us to order.
