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 available with the SA™, ES Table Top™, PumpCap™, ES™, PS™, and LS™ Cap Tighteners.

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 safely hold the container without being too 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, enhancing the safety of the capping process.

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.

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 urethane insert cannot provide enough gripping power to remove a tight cap. Generally what occurs is that the urethane 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 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.
