SA Capping Machine makes bottle capping effortless

Makes Capping Effortless

The SA Capping Machine performs all of the functions and exerts all of the effort involved in the bottle capping process so you do not have to. The operator simply places the bottle onto the base of the machine and depresses the foot pedal; the machine takes care of the rest.

Not only is the SA Capping Machine the perfect solution for people currently tightening their caps by hand, it even requires less effort to operate than a hand-held capping machine. Below is a listing and explanation of some of the factors that make the SA Capping Machine so comfortable to use. In a few of these explanations, we will describe how the SA Capping Machine requires less effort to operate than a hand-held capping machine.

The SA Capping Machine applies the downward force required
during the capping process.

Capping machines use a chuck with inserted soft rubber liner to create grip on a cap. Downward pressure is required during the capping process to push the soft rubber liner into the cap. When the liner is pushed into the cap, it grips the cap which enables the capping motor to tighten the cap onto the bottle. If no downward pressure is applied during the capping process, the liner will simply skid over the cap and the cap will not become tight.

The Air Cylinder on the SA Capping Machine provides all the downward force required during the capping process so the operator does not have to. The operators of hand-held capping machines must apply the downward force themselves.

The SA Capping Machine absorbs the torque generated during
the capping process so the operator is not exposed to it.

By design, the operator of a hand-held capping machine has to hold the capping machine still during the capping process. As a result, when the machine is applying the required torque to tighten a cap, the operator has to exert an equal amount of torque in the opposite direction to prevent the machine from rotating during the capping process.

The capping motor is mounted on the SA Capping Machine so the operator is never exposed to the twisting torque generated during the capping process.

The SA Capping Machine prevents the bottle from spinning during the capping process.

The base of the SA Capping Machine is covered by an extremely high friction rubber. The downward force generated during the capping process presses the bottom of the bottle firmly into the high friction rubber which works to prevent the bottle from spinning while it is being capped. So much friction is created that the operator usually does not have to hold the bottle while it is being capped. In the event that the base requires some assistance from the operator to completely prevent the bottle from spinning, only the slightest of effort is required.
