The Right Choice in a Hand-Held Bottle Capper
PS Bottle Cappers provide better torque accuracy and are more comfortable to use than other hand-held capping machines.
Superior Torque Accuracy
A Superior Clutch for Superior Torque Accuracy
PS Bottle Cappers utilize a highly accurate clutch that will automatically shut off the capping motor the instant the correct amount of torque has been applied to the cap. This translates into unsurpassed torque accuracy and repeatability in a hand-held capping machine.
There are many hand-held capping machines you can purchase that use slip clutches and even some that have no clutch at all. Just as the name suggests, a slip clutch slips and vibrates when the cap reaches the output torque. Slip clutches are not as accurate as the clutch used in the PS Bottle Capper and, in many cases, they provide poor torque accuracy and repeatability.
Capping Machines that do not have a clutch simply stall when the cap becomes tight. While these machines can tighten a cap, they do so with little accuracy and repeatability.
The Correct Torque Output for Your Caps
Make sure that the capping machine you choose has the correct torque output to properly tighten your caps. There are capping machines that do not have an appropriate torque range for most caps. Sometimes, the output torque of these machines is far too high to properly tighten all but the very largest of caps. Other times, the output torque may be too low to properly tighten your cap.
We will custom build your PS Bottle Capper to provide you with the perfect output torque range for your caps. Even though your machine will be built specifically for your caps, all orders still ship within 1 – 2 business days.
The reference guide to the right contains application torque guidelines for the most common cap sizes. Use this chart to approximate the correct torque range for your particular cap and bottle. Be sure to choose a capping machine that can provide you with the correct amount of torque for your cap and bottle.
Please note that the reference guide is a general guide only; the proper application torque for your cap may be different from the specifications listed in the chart. Your cap and bottle vendor is the best source for you to attain the actual application torque specifications for your cap and container.

Superior User Comfort
PS Bottle Cappers automatically shut off the instant the cap becomes tight, resulting in unsurpassed user comfort in a hand-held capping machine.
Capping machines that use a slip clutch will remain on until the operator releases the lever. During the time that the cap is already tight but the operator has not yet released the lever, the slip clutch will slip continuously.The slipping action of the clutch generates vibration and also prolongs the operator's exposure to the torque generated during the capping process.
Capping machines that do not have a clutch will remain on until the operator releases the lever. During the time that the cap is already tight but the operator has not yet released the lever, the motor will continue to drive torque onto the cap. This prolongs the operator's exposure to the torque generated during the capping process.
No Levers To Push
When operating a PS Bottle Capper, the operator simply has to provide a gentle push down on the machine to cap the bottle.
Many hand-held capping machines are lever start machines that require the operator to both depress a lever and push down on the machine. This is a less natural motion and is therefore less comfortable than only pushing down. Levers also create a pinch point. When working quickly or carelessly the fingers of the operator can be frequently pinched between the lever and the machine.
PS Bottle Cappers are very quiet to operate, producing only a sound level of between 69 – 78 dBA depending on which model you choose. Not only are they quiet when they are running, but they run only for an instant for each cap that they tighten.
There are pneumatic hand-held capping machines you can purchase that
are so loud that ear protection should be worn when operating them.
